    Here is the full list of faction gear available for silver on TC1 (note: there will be cliloc errors and other issues until we get the client published!)

    Note - the table runs off the edge of the frame. For the moment, highlight it to see the data - I need to move it to a different database where it can live in peace.)

    If they lower the bonus' on the items it would be better. They are a tad to high.

    I can farm wisps for an hour, make 5k silver, kill 2 faction guys and then have uber items.

    What brainiac thought this was a good idea?

    Holy hell, way to make the crystalline ring and mage weapon combo even more overpowered. No need for inquis anymore. Way to go EA, way to go.

    I'll make it easy for those that are handicap to pvp...

    Hiding
    Stealth
    Archery

    2 pop shots in brit.

    Looks like EA took a page out of the Blizzard handbook for their welfare epics patch. I officially call this phase in UO "Welfare Artis".

    This all certainly strikes me as a very poor way to balance PvP.

    Are you sure you can get enough silver to replace your items before they break?

    How much silver do these things cost anyway? I haven't seen that posted anywhere.

    the entier patch is bs, ...but here is the point that makes me fall over laughing.

    they nerf vamp form right? ya lets do away with it, no worries.

    but wait lets let people make a char, fresh i mean not even 5 minutes old have 30 stealing. put on +15 ring, +15 brac, burglers bandana etc. only need 80 to steal a sig.

    join factions, go to base steal a sigil.

    BAM

    they get silver, plus 10 whole kill points for every sigil they steal? HAHAHAHA so if you steal all 8 you get 80 points and never fended one enemy. HAHAHAH what a joke, this is factions EA not wow.

    in 5 minutes you can be rank 10 faction with every new item with out ever training a skill. then honor your other characters give them your points and boom. able to wear anything. without EVER EVEN KILLING SOMEONE FROM A FACTION OPPOSITION.

    VAMP FORM WHAT? LOL who needs vamp form when you can use skill on items to get this stuff if your a trammie? hrmm?

    this whole patch is a joke.

    Over-react much people? First, the 2 hour timer is ONLY ON TEST CENTER!
    Even if they lower the live timer to 4-5 hrs, the thief has to BE ON at the time the sig corrupts, and it HAS to corrupt by that thief's faction. AND the thief has to have taken it FROM THE TOWN POST. This could take DAYS, on some shards WEEKS to accomplish ... doesnt sound so easy anymore, does it?

    Does anyone know if you have to be in the Thieves' Guild in order to steal a sigil? If so, there's a week of waiting time before a new player can do so.

    No, you don't. None of my faction thieves are in the thieves guild. I have no interest in stealing from people, so it works for me :)

    Ok here is my problem with this whole thief crap. I have read alot of faction posts from time to time. I read that people would kill the opposing factions thief over and over and over. Yet these thieves are able to put on skill jewels to continue to steal something worth 10 pnts while being in stat.

    If your a thief and your in stat you should not be able to steal the sig flat out. Its pathetic i read a post where people tried to defend for a long ass time and the only people trying to get in were steatlhing thieves. Who could steal the sigs even after being killed countless times and in continous stat.

    If you want to give thieves the ability to get 10 pnts per sigil then make it so if they die they have to wait the 20 mins to be able to steal the sigil.


    Other then that everyone start making twinkling scimitars and sell mage weps because the template just became even more disgusting. 25 dci glasses 15 aof 21 dci wep. With orny and crystalline you can have 6 mr and even go with fey leggings and sick resist **** with little mods on the other pieces.

    ROFL, are you serious? NOTHING COST MORE THAN 5K SILVER!

    It's like working honor or sacrifice.. you farm for 1 hour a day and you can replenish.. I can make 5k silver in 1 hour EASY. And your acting as if the armor will break after a few fights.. The armor will take weeks to completely break.

    To my knowledge nobody ever said that the 2 hour timer was for test only. The patch notes state that the corruption time was lowered to 2 hours, normally the patch notes entail what will go live on production shards as well.

    Besides, kill points are KILL points.. there is no killing involved in faction stealing. Thieves should not be awarded faction KILL points for stealing.

    No. Anyone can steal a sigil if they carry the 60 point stealing gear. Buy/Train 20 points stealing in town, equip gear, you're now 80 stealing.. go steal.

    Agree 100%. IMO the stealing skill requirement should be raised from 80 to 120. Raising the skill requirement will prohibit anyone from just buying skill and equipping gear to make a quick snatch. On top of this when someone is in stat they shouldn't be able to steal anyway. Most players are rendered close to useless when in stat, this should remain the same for thieves as well.
