    You've just made my day! +10,000 to the shield and bracers working now..you've made a useless artifact useful again!

    +Infinity to fixing the stone boots bug. Question though..will they still work for Navrey? If not, what use are they at all other then deco

    Suggestion:
    Can you make the blackthorn trader trade a major for a major? Say I picked the Epaulette but now want the hooded shroud? Can it be made so it's an even swap? Maybe like the item and 10k or something for a bribe?

    "Players can no longer recall out of Blackthorn’s Dungeon in Felucca."

    Why was this an issue? If it's keeping it uniform with the other dungeons, meh.

    "SA item properties correctly spawn on loot located in champ spawn areas."

    Anyone know what this means or rather HOW exactly the properties weren't working? As far as I know all the SA properties (Eaters, CF, Blood Drinker, Blood Lust, etc..) were already dropping from champ spawns?

    Well looking at the Idoc changes it would seem that the last change so that after a house reached In Danger of Collapsing to 0 - 11 hours wasn't of great enough benefit to the scripters. I doubt there are many casual players who want, or are even able, to obtain the time a house goes idoc and then return after 5 hours to wait for up to another FIFTEEN hours. They have sounded the death knell of idocs for ordinary players and made a gift of them to those who cheat. I wonder why?.

    A scripter writes a program and goes about his business and doesn't sit around at the idoc..with houses falling o to 11 hour after idoc status at least our waiting time was somewhat limited around but the new times .. 5 to 20 hours?? Well those times benefit only those who cheat...more active accounts scripters? yes it does take a lot of time to move the characters into position to cheat I guess..so if that makes them more active.....then...what can I say....

    IMHO there would be just one viable solution for IDOCs: Instead of collapsing the house would go "Owned by BS". Then a BS employee/EM is doing an inventory-taking. Checks/Gold will be destroyed immediately, as well as any item, that can be bought from an NPC vendor. All remaining items are then auctioned off at a public action held by BS/EM during shard peak time (auction could be announced a few days ahead on uo.com and the launcher; high value items /rares could be already listed on the website). At the end the plot of land is auctioned as well. All gold earned through the auction is then destroyed.
    Pros: Large amounts of gold could be removed from the system permanently (goldsink). Noone is going to miss an IDOC anymore. Everyone can get an item, as long as they got the gold. Scripters are completely out of the picture.
    Cons: Poor/not so rich players cannot have a lucky grab anymore (but as far as I get it, in the current situation almost noone can compete with scripters anyway)

    Or the items could just go poof. If they were viewed with such limited value by the former owner it's a fair guess to say they have limited value to other players also.

    I'm thinking that by saying the "poof" often enough the Dev team will see this as the collective stratics player base wants the "poof" and it will happen to my delight.

    POOF!

    The main thing going "poof" due to the IDOC changes is the number of active accounts of those who once enjoyed doing them but no longer can. Not to mention formerly running one of the only decent vendor houses on a lower pop server but now having to tell your customers "Sorry, they ruined IDOCs so I don't have what you are looking for anymore, the x-shard cheaters take all their loot to Atlantic I think, try there."

    Not really. At an IDOC on Atl a few weeks back (that was by Ice in Fel), I managed to snag a backpack full of 120's, about 46 in total. That was just what I found. Once I realized what was in there, I recalled out to put them in the bank, then came back.

    I would venture to guess that a lot of the time, IDOCs have junk. Every once in a while, you'll hit the jackpot.

    At this point, with overabundance of items vrs players, its probably better for the game if IDOCS just did go poof. there is no reason to keep those items in game.

    As for rares, IRL things get lost to history. i see nothing wrong for the same to be the case in a videogame.

    20 hours on an idoc, excuse me but that is just down right stupid! 5 hrs should be max, and any time within the 5 hrs. people are gonna script regardless of time, 5 hours would atleast give a non bot toon a half assed chance.

    I'm waiting for a call from the corp security dep after that crap showed up......

    How does this have anything to do with running a vendor house? Idocing has nothing to do with stocking a vendor, if you needed loot to do such your house was bound to fail anyways. Statements like this hold nothing in regards to changing the timer and only, IMO, show leeching in is purest form. I play a low pop server, when I play, and if I wanted to stock my luna house with stuff I could do it with anything I felt like. Make mules, nuff said.

    46 120's have limited value unless they are all magery or similar scrolls, I'm sure that 90% of all the formerly active PvP types have 100's of 120's sitting around collecting dust.

    Just make the stuff disappear! Or have it all recycle into 1 hit MOBs in the IDOC dungeon..you never know! You could get absolutely anything! Would make for some interesting farming tactics..

    I read it as, when you are stealthing, things that can attack you won't follow you around or move to your location while you are in stealth mode/hidden.
    In other words, if you are at the Painted Caves and hit the stealth button, 7 Troglodytes won't immediately walk over to where you are and just stand there beside you waiting for you to pop out of stealth mode.

    Your own pets will probably still follow you around. Although, it would be more fun if your own pets *forgot* where you were when you went stealth and just wandered around aimlessly until their master showed back up. :D

    MEDDLING....not MEDALLING......sorry that's been bothering me REAL BAD! lol ok now that I have that out of my system.....

    LOVE to see the long list of bug fixes!

    I DO agree, however, that 20 hours is a really bad idea. NOONE is going to sit at their computer for 20 hours waiting for an idoc....5-8 hours would be better. I also agree that this change does help only the scripters....I'm sure the team knows how to use Google and all you have to do is type in IDOC Scripts and you'll see what we are talking about.

    Please re-consider this change.

    Perhaps that's the idea... but it is not implemented yet... I don't know about on your shard but on GL's I can say for sure 100% that we did request them from the King. I know I mentioned docks for Yew as well as a bridge to the Yew Far Farm dozens of times. I'd settle for a teleport or ferry system like Skara to get from the one termination of road to the other across the bay. Farmers have asked for this on a number of occasions. Hard to patrol out that far when the road doesn't even go there... traveling all the way around the bay takes far too much precious time from our security patrols leaving the farms out there... unprotected.

    But to have our Dock finally so we can bring in grain more easily from Britain to the Mill is wonderful! We will have to have a party to celebrate!

    maybe thats the point? i mean, even sitting at an idoc for 3 hours isnt a very healthy habit. by icreasing it to 20 hours, perhaps this "activity" (used in the loosest sense) is trying to be phased out. Yes the scripters will get everything, but i think its a good incentive for regular players to give up idocing and start enjoying actual game content.

    This could also be a change to allow for GMs enough time (yes, 20 hours) to follow up on the reports of scripting at idocs (im sure there are many many pages of this nature)

    The Shipwrights office in Yew has been without a proper dock for many years. We've complained about the need to get grain from Britain to the Mill quicker. It's a city thing. The dock is long overdue and to those of us in Yew who love our city ..... we couldn't be happier about it.
