    Greetings,

    We will be publishing Pub 88 to Origin and Izumo today, due to the late time of publish Izumo will not experience another maintenance today. We expect to start the publish at 2:30 and both shards should be back by 3:30 at the latest. As most of you have discovered the Treasures of Doom was accidently turned off early, we will be publishing the fix for this out with the World Wide publish. We appreciate all the feedback and look forward to hearing more.

    Thank you everyone!
    UO Team

    • The Grinder can now work when locked down in a house

    I logged in just to check the VvV leaderboards but they don't seem to be working, I didn't go on Test to look at them so maybe I just don't know what I am doing. Use guild menu, hit leaderboard and nothing happens.

    A missed note: Leaderboards are updated every 2 hours. Once data is available the leaderboards will display.

    Can we get the new plant from the horn of plenty on Origin? The old horn not the new reward one.

    Do the horns of plenty now perpetually regenerate charges, or still only in the month of November?

    Can you do us a HUGE favor and put a trash barrel at the Rangers guild for unwanted permits?

    Thanks :heart:

    Some of publish 88 is working, just not all of it, it seems.

    I did see people in general chat say that their dyes are not yet stack able so I just checked my snow and grass tiles with the same result.

    The problem is that they are floating around all over the land same time, not only in the guild.

    Not sure if it is easiest to cut down the decay time on them to 2 minutes, - or give them some cleanup point value like 5 points or so. I see this will be a problem when the publish hit the bigger shards, and it will be thousands and thousands of thoose shattered around the world.

    Is there any way to let guilded non-VvV characters access the leaderboard if any member of the guild is in VvV? The way it is working on Origin right now, it appears that the only characters in the guild who can see the leaderboard are characters that are actually in VvV.

    Some of the guild data on the leader boards is displaying rather interestingly. Negative values and such.

    Emptied 6 horns of plenty of their charges and ended up with 4 potted coffee plants. When you click on them, they say "The plant is not ready to be picked from." The potted coffee plant's context menu only lets you retrieve it or set security.

    You have to lock it down, and it will grow on server up. When it is fully grown, you can harvest from it.

    That would be a bad idea - because you have to drop it on the huntermann for to record your kill. And - if you miss, it will be gone. Therefore I suggested to cut down the decay time to 2 min in case you drop, try pick it up and crash etc.. It have to be a bit failproof.

    Maybe they should put in a context - where you use context on huntermann for to record a kill, for to target the deed in your backpack???

    Yet, it is a bad idea to make them decay on drop - some people would like to have just the deed for lockdown in their houses.

    Some are, but u need to open corpse to be allowed for that. So, reality is that the ground around the world and the Ranger House is filled with them.

    so i went and did that Huntsman thing.
    purchased 20 permits, ran though the forest and killed 20 things, put them on the tags, nothing was bigger then what was already up.
    this is totally RNG.
    and its not even RNG, its DOUBLE BLIND RNG!
    cause the animal spawns and we cant tell if its big or small so we have to kill it to find out.

    im thinking there needs to be something more to this.
    it feels like its only half there.
    does that make sense?
    it needs to have something where you can track a mighty beast with herding and tracking and animal lore.
    or your tracking will take you to a critter that is in the 90% range and up or something.
    just wondering the forest killing everything in the hopes that it will be a big one is..... well its just a money sink.

    i dropped 100k for 5 minutes of not even fun.
    i just killed stuff that took one hit per with my warrior.
    maybe you guys should super buff up the heavier animals?
    that would give us the idea if we where at least fighting something worth while.
    you roll up on a bull and smack it, instead of the one hit kill you only shave 1/20 off... oh ya its big game hunting time!

    meh!

    Yeah I agree and I think Kyronix said that they intended to make it a bit more... sporting or something but time constraints led to what it is. I'm hoping that in future they rework it to allow things like Tracking, Animal Lore and such to play a part in big game hunting. But for now we are stuck with the RNG but that's what you have with fishing as well.... but fishing doesn't cost you 5k a pop. And that's just to kill it and get the deed.... it's 100k to mount the thing and even MORE expensive to do such a thing on Siege.

    I don't see that as a big problem, except that the permits are very expensive

    Sure if you want to use several skills for it, you do not have to buy as many permits, but I also like to be able to just kill the critter and then use the permits to get the size of it.
    I don't want to be forced to have this skills to do this challenge.

    The permits are to expensive, special for newbies.
    I also agree the critters need to get a little more hitpoints and need to deal more damage. A newbie should die if trying to kill Bull or a Grizzly. I would still believe around 5 arrows from my bow should do the job.

    I like the hunter idea, but I dont understand why everything has to be a gold sink theese days. I guess if moongates were introduced today, they would cost 10k per ride.

    Yeah I had to stop doing it and go kill dragons for a bit to make more gold...I went through about...500k? And I am NOT a rich person in UO...irl either lol.

    I think as it is right now....it has potential. It's fun for the first day until some rich person goes and gets all the highest kills and the rest of us waste a LOT of gold trying to beat the record for the rest of the month.

    It's going to be tricky to find a balance...using skills like tracking and animal lore could be good, but might just give a small boost so that the people who don't or don't want to have those skills still have a chance.

    I'm sure that with enough feedback from us, they will be able to tweak it and find the right balance.

    I'm planning on trying out the challenge once. planning on doing 300 kills, seeing what i get. just have to find the most efficient way to kill all the animals in the forest quickly. im thinking area effect running thru, then going back and documenting the kills.

    It's only a grind if you feel the need to get the biggest one. I plan on killing one of each to have the Trophy's in my castle. If I get the biggest one, ok, if not that's ok too. I think the trophy's are enough for me and if they add more beasts later down the road, even better.

    The publish notes say the plants will grow each day on server up and will produce fruit once they reach their full growth state. Can't wait to see how they turn out!

    I really think this activity should be limited to give everyone a sporting chance. You should get on shot at every creature, and make it a week long event.

    Yeah I mean...RIGHT as Origin came back online there were at least 5 people logged out with me at the Ranger's Guild lol...was crazy for the first few hours trying to get the highest kill but after spending almost 300k JUST to try for the biggest walrus I gave up :/

    Hopefully we'll be able to find a good balance because I do like the concept.

    That is why I was sort of hoping that these hunts would be for new hard to find creatures that were just basically the same animal with a different name or like a special (muted natural looking) hue, and have say maybe only one per map server area, so you would actually have to put the work in to find one. That way you couldn't just spam it, as it would take a lot of running around.

    And/or like I suggested in the other thread the ability to use animal lore to "reveal" the special kind of animal when examining a regular animal of the same type. Not a huge chance, and only one chance per animal.

    I know they said they the system is what it is right now, but, just some ideas to toss around.

    Anyway, I expect as is things will die down after a month or two, and people will have a better shot at it. Faster if the rounds weren't month long. Wayyyyy too long. A week would be plenty.

    I don't know why they don't have hunts on multiple facets. Overland hunting in ter mur could use some incentive.

    The "remove thyself" command does not seem to work on the turkeys from the Horns of Plenty, at least on Origin at this point. I've tried with house owner and with co-owners and get the targeting cursor, but it doesn't do anything.

    I like the Huntermann's quest - but fear that 1 month is a long waypoint, and people will loose interest for it as the highest weight's are close to impossible to match.

    Maybe they should have it a week a time, starting at server up monday - till next monday for to give people a chance and a goal. Also raise the reward points for buying reward to 4 instead of 1 for to keep it so that people have to continue work for to get the score to be able to get a reward.

    The statues displayed are nice, but should keep high time record and it should be a bulletin board with the week's highest score and a bulletin board with the month's highest score. And also maybe give a reward to the month's highest score's as well - at same time to the week's highest score.

    I dont see any link between animal lore and the weight, that is kind of odd - as a ranger should be able to tell if its a big one or not. Also, if a person has tracking - it should be a natural thing that he can tell if it is a big animal that has run by.

    No, it sounds like a bug. Looking into it.
