    Greetings,

    We are updating Test Center today. You can find the list of bug fixes below:

    • Mannequin can no longer be placed outside of a home.
    • Increased the point value for the Item bless deed
    • Changed the name of the item bless deed to bless deed to preserve the rare factor of the original one.
    • The Cornucopia will now give points as it should.
    • Removed the cooking bonus from the full Fisherman’s set.
    • Fixed an exploit with placing Clean up Britannia items in the trash can.

    Please note: If you put female gargoyle cloth armor onto a male gargoyle you cannot remove it via the paperdoll. You can remove it by changing the race/gender. This is a classic client bug that will be fixed in the future.



    We plan to publish these changes on Origin tomorrow, Wednesday 09/14. We are going to be bringing down Origin at 11am EDT (3pm UTC).

    Please keep an eye on the Herald for updates.

    Would it be possible to get clarification on which of the reward items will be blessed on Siege and Mugen and whether or not the bless deed will be available on those shards? And would it be that difficult for someone on the team to please provide a list of the rewards and the turn-in items as part of an official set of publish notes? It's pretty pathetic that we have to rely on players to gather this information when publish notes in the past for this type of event actually included most, if not all, of this information. I mean, what exactly are we paying $12.99 per month for anymore? Sometimes I feel like I should be paying a good chunk of it to other players, as they do a far better job of passing along information than EA does lately.

    So they made the item bless deed 100K points now to apeese the rare collectors..
    Oh well its not that much anyways ...

    Werent the bless deeds mass duped?? so i cant see it being a rare..

    I do love the manequin option to switch cloths from yourself onto it...thats just wild..
    Going to be handy to make up suits for chars and have them equip it..

    I did notice that the durability on scout and scorcerer set is 100 only and the other suits 125?
    Is this supposed to be like this?
    Well it all looks good so far..just cant wait till it hits other servers...

    Any idea on the 14 th aniv gifts yet..due time?

    I mean... it was a low amount of points for a permanent bless. The less blessed items the better I say.

    Let me get this straight... Pub 72 hits Origin tomorrow?

    Seriously?

    I hope Origin's gargoyle population doesn't mind having their wings clipped...

    ...

    Once upon a time, when the first Clean Up event happened, I wanted an Item Bless Deed to bless my then-new Indestructible, Supremely Accurate War Mace of Vanquishing (yes, tops in all mods), but these days, outside of a couple of items which I have used my Personal Bless Deed, I really can't think of anything I need to permanently bless. Any combat equipment will get swapped out in time anyway, or will wear out due to being imbued, new ideas or items will come along, etc.

    And even if I'm doing something where death is a possibility, I'm usually dragging in well more than enough in gold to cover the insurance costs.

    Not sure I see what the huge uproar over the bless deed is.

    By the same token, is it a bit ironic that they're changing the name to preserve the rarity of the (heavily duped) original?

    Yay for Origin! :)

    I have yet to create a gargoyle, I did make one but started in New Haven, I thought they were supposed to start in Ter Mur so I never even did anything with it, I was sort of let down lol.

    Guess I'll be doing alot of testing tomorrow.

    Thanks for the update, I can't wait!

    i see this as a compromise, 100k isnt bad.

    next up, glacial blue dye tub for xmas, but it wont say glacial, itll say "off shiny pixel crack blue"
    :)
     
  12. 50k to an increase of 100k is to much

    Its because all the rares people whined to the Devs. You know they have to cater to them or they will cry some more, to 4311 with the rest of UO player base that do not post to these boards.

    Eh, I was having trouble thinking of what I'd bless anyway. Now I can buy a suit or 2 of the new armor sets.

    100k is too much for the bless deed now IMO. Insurance per each item is so cheap that you would need to die thousands and thousands of times for a bless deed to be worth it.

    Oh yes, had to give in to the rares crowd, be a pity all them duped "rare" Item Blessed Deeds be devalued (very small few might be still real, but the majority... well, we all know). 65 to 75k per deed would of been good, but 100k points is a little ridiculous to say the least. Stop & figure the per deaths even at the max of 600gp a pop......

    Let me say I am less than impressed.

    For one - they need to fix other point values.

    The one I'm most frustrated with is the rat coins - it gives same amount for Bronze, Silver, Gold.

    The rarity of these is 1-1, 10-1 and 50-1 respectively. It was MUCH MUCH harder to get gold coins as they spawned much less. To give the same amount of points for them is plain stupid. I've reported in 2 threads.

    It would be equivalent to giving the same points for a 105 scroll as a 120 scroll.


    The manequin is still a fail in my book since you can't click it and see the armor's total stats. That would actually make it useful to a crafter. Thanks for providing us a vendor that doesn't sell anything basically.

    ...

    The rat coins WERE scaled in the Spring Cleaning (the first time you could turn them in), I guess they figured people kept a set or two (I kept 3 sets personally, and have no plans for turning them in) instead of by rarity.

    The weird thing is that I thought I remember the gold sovereigns being worth quite a bit more and the coppers quite a bit less than the value used...

    Yep, seems to be the case:

    Spring Cleaning (2008):

    Copper Shilling: 100
    Silver Crown: 500
    Gold Sovereign: 10,000

    Cleanup (2011):

    Copper Shilling: 2500
    Silver Crown: 2500
    Gold Sovereign: 2500


    So hindsight and everything, a collector would have been better off turning in the gold in 08 and the silver and copper now.

    Either way, I stocked a sizable hoard of the coins when the event was active and turned them all in but 3 sets of each in 08 and am holding onto those 3 sets.

    100.000 points OR 10m per Item bless deed, thats still extremely cheap.


    On 2008 spring cleaning, there was 6 piece suits for 600.000 points. There are hundreds or thousands of suits (mostly sorcerer & knight) out there, and on that spring cleaning it was not possible to trade gold for points.

    This 2011 spring cleaning, everyone can turn gold for points AND tons of items for 8k points or more. The new suits now costs 300.000 and the replicas of the old suits are only 60.000 points.

    In my opinion, the big mistake on this new spring cleaning is the possibility to buy points using gold. That means EA is dictating the market price on the spring cleaning rewards.
    I hope the devs add some new cool items (just deco, please no more useless suits) for 100.000, 200.000 or more points because otherwise, I (and many others) will end filling *atleast* 3 boxes of 125 item bless deeds each, just by turning some crap.

    although...

    its amazing what there is now to then..

    in 99 we got our bless deeds for 500,000 points

    do you trammies know what that cost us back then? around $300 USD worth of crap piece.

    of which then OSI thought they were kings of giftsand we were like woah.. kids in a candy store.. i still have most of mine.

    kill lichs..get silver vanq katana.. bless it...funny now that i think about it.

    100,000 points is not the problem.

    being able to buy them for 10 mil is a HUGE problem.

    Except back then we didnt have insurance so the IBD's were like WOW a way to keep that special peice of kit away from the reds.

    Now we have insurance so the usefullness of the IBD's are no-where near as amazing as they were back then. I also think 10mil for them is being a bit silly. I'ld estimate that they'll be around 20-25 considering that they now cost 100,000 points, which if you actually look at it is quite difficult to get considering that blue essences are the most valuable (25k points per) but they are also not exactly common now.

    Now forward on from that.. They have renamed them to just bless deeds so those who have kept the older IDB's will still have that rarity value. So even if the new Bless Deeds are 10mil... so what? Its a bargin and whoever is selling it at that price is a fool. My money will be on the suits tbh.

    Lame attempt to blame it on trammies. In '99 my 7x7 small brick house had more items inside then you can put into a castle nowadays. It is obvious that ever since we have a lockdown limit (+ house/account limit) the casual player has alot less items to toss away ... hence why it takes less points.

    Blaming "Trammies" is just a reflex for a lot of people.

    The term really has no meaning at this point. And that is if it ever did.

    People used the term to refer to people who made feature requests in UO: Cartographer, of all the things.

    -Galen's player
     
  37. First off who cares about the name change of the deeds. Who really walks in to any rares house and clicks deed.

    WOW this white deed says ITEM BLESS DEED.
    WOW this white deed says BLESS DEED.

    How about some random adventuring and changing dungeons.


    10 million in gold, 5 million in gold. Whats the point. Gold is endless. So you spend 50 million on deeds. Its not like you wont get items to sell later for gold.

    The biggest thing that they caught was the turn in exploit for the trashcan.


    Now you know why they waited so long. GOOD JOB DEVS. Catch the problems. The above stuff is just useless banter.

    I find it a good source of gold drain personally. Values of items like IBD's dont really mean much to most people, and tbh its nice that its available to more people as a whole. The old ones are still 'rare' just havent got some stupid price tag on it.

    I like the fact theres gold drains now!

    Doubling the price of bless deeds killed what little interest I have in this stuff. What else is there to care about? Some crappy suits with lousy stats that'll wear out too quickly? Some deco junk? I'm not a hoarder, I'd need to pay for anything I wanted.

    Pass.

    EDIT: Oh and the suits all have non-med pieces mixed in because someone over there apparently doesn't know how the game works. Hahaha. Let me just take off my 25m imbued suit for that. Not.

    are you serious? I am a rare collector and own one of the rare item bless deeds, it didn't bother me at all that they made these a spring cleanup item with the same name as the original one, fact of the matter is the ones that exist right now are severely duped beyond belief, i knew people that had hundreds of them in their banks selling them for like 30-50 mil each it was ridiculous

    secondly, bless deeds don't even have a use anymore, they were awesome before insurance came out, i mean it costs like 10 gold to insure jewelry, whats the point of blessing my ornament of the magi, there is nothing to even use a bless deed on aside from doom artifacts, library glasses and a few other arties

    thirdly 100k points is peanuts, i wish it like 500k-1 million points, i mean i have a bag of 103 ask and answer crystal balls that are worth 15k pts each.... i have 101 of the blue crystals from halloween a while back at 25k pts each... thats like 4 million points from 2 types of things out of the millions of different things i have to turn in

    also I'm not too fond of gold as a turnin, but I guess it'll get rid of some of the abundance of gold in the game, good use of a gold sink but it makes the spring items worth not as much as they could have been

    Sooo since there's nothing posted...

    Any reason why everything BUT the clean-up was published to Origin??
     
  43. What I would really spend my point on is....

    Balm of Fire for 10k.

    Smear it on my sword and it flames for a few days. It does nothing but look cool.

    Or I'd buy tokens of passage that gets me to some unique dungeon for like 25k.

    I would spend 10 million points on DEED of CONSTRUCTION for a basement.

    If they would put that in uogamecodes.com, or drop the contact for uogamecodes.com and just move all of the uogamecodes stuff into the new account system, and offered it for $10 I'd be in for a couple.

    The new suits are 4 part/50k per, so only 200k total. But they are non PoFable and will wear out. Especially the Bestial kit, which relys on getting beat down to work. Else why use it?
