    I thought that they answered that question about flying and dismounts by saying that once you dismount you have to wait the same amount of time to fly that you would to mount.

    Unless you were being sarcastic, in which case it went over my head :p

    The two title questions could've been combined to one answer.
    Choosing title would be sweet. Would be better if we could not only choose up and down inside that same title, but be able to choose one of the other titles (if we've earned them).

    The jack of all trades question has been answered on the boards over and over, but I guess it still eludes people.

    If I am not mistaken, Allowing you to choose ANY of the titles you have earned is the idea, so lets say you have done vermin and undead, you have level 3 vermin and level 2 undead, Now you can pick level 1 or 2 or 3 of vermin or level 1 or 2 of undead. If that is not what you meant, then forget everything I said smack me twice and ask in a different way cuase I obviously failed to understand lol

    Edit: Oh yea, don't forget not every player reads stratics, or any message board for that matter =\

    If an arrow that no one shot with the dismount special toggled strikes a flying gargoyle will I be able to remount; while imbuing 6 properties on my items with special properties at 110% intensity. WE MUST KNOW!!!!

    I mean seriously, do you selectively pick the worst questions to answer in the FOF? Why doesnt anyone on the DEV team actually answer questions regarding more pressing issues than the chances of casting two purple llama EVs? And if you look at previous FOFs, im 99% sure that JOAT and Champ titles were covered.

    And if anyone would go ahead and read the f-ing boards regarding JOAT before asking the DEVS, maybe, just maybe, they wont pick the easiest, cop-out questions to answer in the FOFs. FOF questions should be posted and polls should be made to see which questions people would like to see answered. I dont even care if its TOF (Two on Friday) if that means the at least something important will be addressed and agreed upon by the entire UO community. It is getting ridiculous as to what people are sending in for FOF questions, even more ridiculous that the DEVs choose to answer such questions.

    Out of curiosity, what question did you submit?

    I send in a list of questions every week w/ more pressing matters then this crap. It started as 7 now i think its up to 20. I save it and add to it then copy and paste it every week.

    Seriously how ridiculous is this crap. OMG 2 llamas. Did someone really not know the joat question. 2 questions on crap that most ppl hide. Who gives a crap about a title.

    I think people are so fed up with the amount of crap the devs answer they sent in the most ridiculous idiotic questions to see if the would get answered. Unfortunately they did.

    Congrats devs i think you REALLY lowered the bar on this FOF. Give yourselves a pat on the back and have a drink. How ****ing hard is it to fix speedhacking? Freeshards have done this and have done this a long time ago. Maybe they should contact those people so they can show them.

    Then again people got there OMG SHINIES so they are good for a month.

    I agree. I posted an FoF in regards to if Stygian Abyss house customizing will still require us to re-deed elven furniture and other items, but that was ignored, just as myo ther questions have been in the past. Who cares about purple llamas? Who DOESN'T know about JOAT? The title thing was fine to cover about getting to chose your own, but really? I don't even want to really read FoF because it's annoying.

    I know I've sent in dozens and dozens of questions. Not one has ever been answered in a FoF.

    *Gets out fire resistant suit*

    While everyone is entitled to have their questions answered, I would like to say something pretty simple that no one ever understands.

    What is important to you is not important to everyone.

    Next you have to consider that they will not answer some questions, simple. I am sure you all have legit questions and such but it seemed painfully obvious that someone should point out the obvious.
     
  26. Im glad we got an answer about the energy llamas, been losing sleep on that one for a while now :p

    Good to hear that someone could be looking into the title thingy, it can be annoying when half of your title is missing on your paperdoll :thumbsup:

    More stealables, good good :thumbsup:
     
  27. Just as i posted i thought "why are there vortex llamas?"

    So why where they introduced in the first place? its a bit random no? was it a bug that was just never fixed?

    Curious thats all :confused:

    The original animation for the energy vortex was the purple llama, when they changed the vortexes to what we see today I am not sure if it was intended or not, but the more powerful vortex will appear as a llama, or as the original animation. :p Not to sure if it is a bug or not, but I know that energy vortexes have varying strength and the llama ones are the stronger (strongest?) ones. :p

    FYI...

    if the odds of casting a llama vortex is 1 in 500, then the odds of casting it two times in a row is 1 in 250,000. (Not 1 in 1000).

    I like the idea of keeping any title you have earned. I have 'Hunter of Evil' which is great because that is what I do. I wouldn't want to advance to 'Champion of Evil' because it gives a different connotation....like you are evil's champ.

    I do like the titles. It's a feature that would last and give you feeling of accomplishment and you can show it off! Like the "Slime Hunter" title. I love that!
    And I can look at others and see who participated or not.

    Titles go beyond the event that ended.

    I agree with BakeryGnome... I've never done Harrower, yet I have a title as if I did.
