    All US shards will be coming down shortly to address avian concerns within the Valley of Eodon. We expect this downtime to last approximately 1 hour. Thank you and we apologize for any inconvenience.

    Neg Storage.jpg

    Any way you could also look into why we've lost house storage from this Publish?
    Would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    (EDIT: Problem has been addressed by the Great and Wonderful Kyronix in another thread. Thanks again Sir ! )

    249+557=806 and your max is 782 so that would be correct at 24 over.

    It's not possible to go over or have a negative number because current system won't let you exceed it without a bug.

    What "avian concerns" are they supposedly fixing? I sure hope they aren't going to make the foil next to impossible to get.

    I'm not saying the numbers don't add up correctly today. Yesterday before the patch all of my homes had storage available(even if just 1 space).
    Today almost all of my homes are showing negative numbers. Something happened w/ Pub 91 that reduced available storage (changed numbers).

    Maybe this is there way of forcing a shard consolidation!??

    Accidentally make houses lose items which then gets rid of the pixel crack holding back a consolidation...

    One can only hope!

    How many times do you need to hear that no shards will be closed EVER.

    Izumo Meet&Greet yesterday
    Mesanna: Evening
    EM Asiantam: About Izumo
    EM Asiantam: eveyone says there are not many ppl so Izumo will be deleted
    Mesanna: not true
    EM Asiantam: is that true?
    EM Asiantam: lol
    Mesanna: If that was true we would start with Mugen and Origin
    Mesanna: So not true
    Mesanna: Let me make myself clear
    Mesanna: we are not deleting any shards
    Is that clear enough for you.

    Unless there is a new bug, there is no penalty for being over the housing storage limit, other than not being able to store anything additional.

    Be careful when trying to move items around inside secure containers as they may fall to the ground.

    I read the publish updates, but did they turn down loot intensity? I did some t maps and a scalis this am and the t-map loot seemed to have a lot more cursed items and was rather depressing. I was thinking maybe just some RNG unluck, but then I went and raised a scalis and loot didn't seem the same. Once again may be RNG, just thought I would ask if perhaps it was tweaked for the publish.

    I am not a thief. O well it was fun for a while. They just keep giving me reasons not to renew. One person said it is loot but no birds I killed had it. I thank you tho for information.

    I tried to steal it, and game said I couldn't steal that. Killed a red macaw with some energy vortexes and found foil as loot in the corpse.

    It appears now, when one grabs at the foil, you can no longer pick it up. The birds still spawn out and attack you. When you kill them, the foil is in their corpse (not always though)
    The corpses also may have sugar vanilla ect but again, not always.
    The loot has improved and there is also a chance for the new armor, recipes n such to drop from killing the birds.

    *I also like that the birds do not attack you, unless you attack them first...*exception if you grab at the foil*

    Better than this morning!!!..thx Dev's:)


    P.S.
    Could you please make the cocoa liquor and the cocoa butter stackable
    *pretty please*...:D

    Drop the hitpoints on the birds to around 400. 1K hp just makes them boring.

    So the robe is repairable (but not on TC1) but you still cannot apply powder of fortification to any items that normally did not have durability or jewelry.

    Items with durability that do not have any tags to prevent powder of fortification are still not powder-able: Talismans, footwear items, Robes/epaulettes, Paladin Swords, clean jewelry including artifacts like Ring of the Soul-binder, & Enchanted Coral Bracelet.

    If the item(s) have durability and has no tags (Brittle, Replica, Imbued, & Cannot be Repaired) that prevent powder of fortification from being applied, it needs to be powder-able.

    Based on sample size of two Roof runs, there appears to have been a major nerf of loot on the final boss. Previously, I had been getting a handful of legendary artifacts plus up to a half dozen or more major artifacts on the final boss corpse (in addition to the occasional Shadowguard artifact drop too). In the last two runs I did, no legendaries and only one or two low-end major artifacts.

    Just yesterday, I had posted on another thread that the loot on final boss corpses almost always made up for the lack of getting a Shadowguard artifact drop. However, now loot appears to be uber nerfed down. Maybe I've had two bad runs? I hope so, but everyone else I ran it with said the same.

    I know the Fountain spawn rate was adjusted per previous patch notes, but Armory seems to be a simpleton encounter now too. I don't recall reading about that one getting nerfed down.

    I just wrapped up a Roof run and got 5 Legendary Artifact drops, wearing 2200 Luck. Not sure of the quality of them, but I didn't even get that many off of Exodus.

    I just logged after the Publish but did not receive the Holiday gifts.

    The character has plenty space in backpack as only holding 45 items.

    The login DID download the patch before firing up UO client.

    What gives ?

    Thanks for the reply man. I really hope they haven't done anything as I thought it was good loot for the time invested in the whole encounter.

    If it has been I wish they would mention stuff like this in the patch notes.

    @Kyronix would you be able to confirm this? has there been a nerf or any "tweaks" to the Shadowguard loot? Please put us straight!

    In that case, can we get a concrete number on the drop % chance of Shadowguard artifacts? I've done about 20 Roof runs between Lake Superior and Atlantic, and only received one drop in that time, Lerei's Hunting Spear. I suppose it's just a stretch of godawful luck, but even if it were, I would assume that I'd have pulled more than one in that time. I've even been wearing the aforementioned 2200 luck (2600-something with the Statue bonus), which hasn't helped at all.
