    Greetings,

    There are currently some issues with the house lockdown as well as the virtue points on Origin. We are aware of the situation and working to fix it. No points will be lost.

    Ooohhhhh, I hope this doesn't delay Clean-up going live to all shards. I wish it was soon and I wish they would announce when they think it might go live. My points items are burning holes in my houses! :D

    I turned in a total of 11 items, 5 were to the actual person that lost them. My forensics is only 80.7 so I don't get the 100% success yet when I ID.

    Just turned in another item to the town it was from, not the person and got a second dot. Trying to keep track :/

    Good question! One that I can't answer because I don't have any! :/

    I now have two BUBBLES ;)

    Another note:

    If you find an item in FEL and you get the name of the person who lost it, he or she will be in FEL only, I tested this twice.

    So are you hinting that if you find something in Trammel or one of the other facets, the owner might not be in the facet where you found the item?

    No...I found an item in fel, ID said it belonged to Regan in Trinsic...so I went to Trammel Trinsic and no Regan...wandered around for a good 20 minutes. Went to FEL Trinsic and he was there.

    Another item from FEL belonged to a person in New Mag...went to Trammel New Mag and he wasn't there, went to FEL New Mag and found him right away.

    SO if you go to FEL and find a lost item, return it in FEL. I don't think it matters if you just have a town name, I'm not sure though, but if you get the name of the NPC you'll only find them on the facet you found the item on.

    Speaking of Virtue points, has anyone on Origin discovered if you 'use' Compassion points when you resurrect someone?

    Honesty Virtue Test


    GM Forensics makes a big difference.

    Apparently it makes no differance.

    My forensics is only at 81.1, I have 2 dots/bubbles after turning in 12 items and only half of those were to the actual person, the other 6 were just to the correct towns.

    So technically Frarc should be getting MORE honesty then me which is not the case.

    Hopefully that is what they are adjusting.

    Sure wish there were a lot more people on Origin Shard, like when it first came out, to do this prodo shard testing. There is nothing on the Origin Shard forums about any of this, not like there use to be. Maybe UO needs to rethink either using a more populated shard or allowing (if you have a house on another shard) being able to place a 9X9 only (add this to SP also) to get more people to test.

    maybe make it an 'either-or'..... second house on Origin for testing or second house on Siege ........ to be a moving target ? ;)

    ORRR someone could co-own me to their house *hint hint*

    lol

    Seriously if I hadn't of been graciously given an 18x18 on ATL I'd have a house on Origin right now.

    Debating on opening my second account but when WBtB was active that account was stripped for reasons unknown to me. That was my Auction account, I had 3 very well developed chars on it and many items and they are all gone, which saddens me. I have been debating on whether to call and find out if they can fathom what happened but I have little hope in that.

    BUT I am testing all that I can.

    Noteworthy on Honesty Items if one wishes to raise that virtue, remote islands are a good source. So far today I have found 4 items on Fire Island in Tram and 2 items on Fire Island in Fel.

    Curious *Bug*

    While I was looking for items in Fel on Fire Island, I also came across 2 small pieces of blackrock.

    I put the 2 lost items in a bag along with the blackrock. Went to the Inn, dropped the bag and logged on to my forensics guy and noticed the lost items had *lost* their quest tag.

    This is the first time this has happened to me, could the blackrock be effecting it?

    will test this further.

    I could go for that. Just a small 9X9, that way we do not take up prime spots. I am sure there are plenty of these spots on both of those shards. These houses may not be placed in Luna either. They must be out of the way spots.
     
  26. I don't think the blackrock affects it because I found about 6 pieces of small backrock I picked up before I gave you the one piece of armor. But who know's.

    I'm not sure how hard forensic is to train, I guess I would have to know that to be able to say whether or not it would be hard for people to test it ;P. But I do wonder about these house lockdown issues. I have several finished chars on Origin, used to spawn there, but no house so I can't test lockdowns out :/.

    Is that the first time you've swapped found items between characters? Or have you done it before, and if so, which character actually has turned in the item...the original finder or the second character you used to evaluate the found item?

    Since I don't have a house on Origin, I can't use secure containers to switch the items from one character to another.

    The character I am gaining Honesty on is my Archer. Since I had no room on her template, I created a char with 50 Forensics, now at 85.0. I put the items in a backpack and drop it on the ground at an inn, log out and log in with my forensics guy who then picks up the backpack, ID's the items and places it back on the ground. Log out and back in with my Archer who finds the NPC's and returns the items.

    I now have 6 bubbles/Dots in Honesty so I've been doing this for some time now, and that is the first time they have lost their Quest tag.

    I've tried to reproduce it with no success.

    Would also like to ask..this statement in the announcement:

    There are currently some issues with the house lockdown

    Can anyone specify what the issues are? As I don't have a house I cannot test any lock down issues. Is it with the Manniquin, or all items? Are items disappearing or not locking down properly?

    If anyone on the team can give some clarification I can inquire on the shard in General chat if anyone is seeing anything out of the ordinary.

    Only thing that i can think that could have happend with the honesty item is that someone picked them up some time before you got them and the 3 hour time limit ran out on them and they turned normal.

    I just want to make everyone aware of this:

    NOTE: This has not yet been clarified or confirmed but I thought it was worth mentioning.

    One of my Origin inhabitants posted this on our shard forums:

    I noticed that I had ~300 lockdowns left one day, the next time I looked I had ~negative 300 lockdowns. I thought that was odd. Guess I was right. Check before unlocking something cause I couldn't look anything back down after cause I was negative. Good thing it was spring cleaning stuff I guess.

    I am assuming that this is, in part, one of the issues with house lockdowns.

    I am trying to get some clarification, and inquiring if other Originals have had this issue.

    Hopefully we will hear something concrete tomorrow.
