    The Exodus Encounter

    Those loyal still to Minax and Mondain’s creation work fervently to rebuild the mechanical demon, in hopes of once again summoning Exodus into Britannia.
    • Visit the NPC Exodus Arch Zealot outside of what used to be Ver Lor Reg in Ilshenar to learn about how to gain the Keys to the encounter and how to perform the Summoning ritual.
    • Keys may be collected via three paths, the Warrior, the Rogue, and the Craftsman.
    • In order to perform the Ritual you must party up with those you wish to play the encounter with. You do not need to party to acquire the keys.
    • Everyone in the party must have their own set of Keys to perform the ritual.
    • You may perform the ritual at any shrine in Trammel or Felucca, except the Chaos shrine.
      • Due to the restricted architecture of the Spirituality Shrine, a “satellite” shrine has been constructed in front of the original, use that Shrine to perform the ritual.
    • Exodus may be summoned so long as Exodus has not been killed in the last ten minutes.
    • If at any time during the Encounter Exodus’ HP drops below 60%, additional groups will not be able to join the encounter, if Exodus’ HP regen to 75%, additional groups will be able to join the encounter.
    • Players will be teleported to a random Ilshenar shrine if they opt to not leave the area within 10 minutes of Exodus’ death. There is a two minute warning message before this happens.
    • Defeating Exodus will give a chance to receive powerful rewards:
      • Scroll of Valiant Commendation [Replica]
        • Gives the character who eats it a +5 permanent gain to maximum stats

    And I worked out why it's being posted as 'tchappel, guest'. I screwed up the rss feed update. :( It's been picking up the author name from uo.com

    wonder what they did exactly, did they remove the part of the quest where you had to Wear a Tricorn Hat? or did they make a Tricorn hat for Gargoyles? Inquiring minds want to know!

    Its bit cryptic for me.
    Does it mean late evening 11/18 US date/time? During early morning 11/19 European date/time?

    Does anyone know if these items are shown in classic or enhanced?

    In addition to being useful and nicely designed I hope we can place the sheds in castle courtyards as vendor shops with a vendor standing at the door.

    Thank you for Davies Locker. Anyone know if it will reduce the item count like BOD books? This is going to make a nice addition to the War Room.

    That is what I want to know is the table lock rate. If it is just a pretty container then the shed is a better, much larger pick for Tmap storage.

    As always it would be a day later for our over seas brothers and sisters so it be the 19th for them.


    Note to everybody on Baja. Give your full bod books to Amber since she will have storage for them :p

    Just adding this, thanks for all the new stuff. But... the no decay I counted on for city loyalty did not work.

    I believed and I was wrong. They decayed during the no decay time.
