    We've got some fixes for Publish 56. They will go live with maintenance on Wednesday morning. Here are the notes:

    More...

    Do you mean Thursday? Or has this all already happened?

    This refers, I presume to the drops from the Shadowlords' human armies?

    If so, thank you....It's a good start, but I'd still argue you need to work more generally on the reward structure for this event.

    Cool especially if you mean that you can cycle through and see all of them.

    Nice, I might see a General now.

    Damn it, why can't I find out about the profitable bugs before they are fixed?

    Generally speaking, I fear that the non-Factions portions of this event is being neglected somewhat. For example, the reward structure for the Trammel side of the event is still wildly under-powered relative to the Felucca/Faction side.

    One important aspect is that focus is on the events that end on Nov. 17th - I'd expect changes as the War goes on.

    The new faction items should work only against faction members. As it is now. The factions that have these items now have a huge pvp advantage over non faction pvpers. This isn't exactly even close to balanced.

    Is this the small web from Sicarii or the small web from GM Beggar trick or treating?

    Since the mechanism to fix Terethan Keep's "lever" door would be too complicated right now, any chance you could just open the door and leave it open?

    Xel Naga Guest

    You wont need the door with their changes to the gossamers and drone spawn rate. THere will be more than enough in sicarii's room now as well as not even needing to loot them as well as a 2 minute reduction in the cocoon spawn time. Fixes coming on server maintenance.

    I can't get through to Sicarii - is it just Oceania that has an invisible barrier blocking off the main part of Kaldhun dungeon from the entrance in Tram? Or is it supposed to be like that?

    I just know with my connection, unless I can stealth all the way there, there's no way I can run and stay alive past all those baddies, so I can't do the quest =/

    I think I need to spend the evening doing champ spawns in Ilshenar now.

    Thanks for posting the bug Joanne!

    Joanne, thank you for the bug fixing news. But why was the bug removed that Arcane Gems and Smoke Bombs still don't stack? Should I send this in as a question for FoF? They were all found/made before the patch if that matters.

    Excellent, Thank you.

    I think it makes plenty of sense that you guys are focusing on the content that ends on nov 17th too even though I'm more interested in the other stuff :)

    Thanks for fixing so much stuff.

    Could we get ALL threads of life,thought,fate to stack ? :)

    My bags are getting super messy from all the unstacking ones lol.

    Since you Didn't bother to give ANY reasoning behind your comment Zippy I'm simply going to Voice my own opinion on the subject and not bother to tell you why your wrong....


    Faction Items are fine like they are and definately Should work against non faction memebers.... It's nicely balanced as it is. (kinda lacking without the reasoning isn't it ??)

    Good to see many fixes being made, still I can't see any fix to the huge faction bug that forbids people to steal sigils from the enemy strongholds.

    Or was it related to this issue?

    The reason they don't all stack is because when you double click on them and if you have spirit speak they say different things so they only stack with the ones that say the same thing.

    i dont either, this whole power scroll champ thing needs completely reworked..

    im not complaining about pvp and fel and what not.. i love to chase around and kill reds and be all cool like everyone else..

    but here is my problem, so our guild maybe 10 of us go out and start killing the spawn to get the candles up.. the whole time an unnamed guild has ghost cams placed by the alter watching our progress..

    then as soon as the last stage comes up, 10 or so of them rush in, kill everyone that is already trying to stay alive as it is because of the spawn, take over and does the champ.. yay!! i really want to be a part of this.. :(

    this champ thing either needs to be relocated to a restricted area like peerless.. or needs to be taken to trammel.. so the players that want to do champs have a chance to actually do them..


    how it is now is really dumb, there is no reward for spending all the work to get to the last level of spawn to get raided..

    you can say get better at pvp or whatnot.. but still.. were not there to pvp.

    In which case you can go have fun pvm in doom, and buy the scrolls. Or if you like doing champs you can do more challenging champs in ilshenar farming paragons at the same time. You do NOT need to go to fel to get PS, you know...

    Or they leave the game, because this play (my game/ my rules) or pay attitude is by far the most ignorant stance one can make as it ignores a very large portion of paying customers. :grouphug:

    dont you know?
    the powerscrolls belongs to the criminal gangs, you know,those people who get this wonderfull new uber arties for silver.dev´s trashed meanwhile ALL artifacts, only powerscrolls still are worthy.
    (some dev mention it last day´s here "the golden old day´s. someone get it?)
    DEV´s do you call that balance if 10% can have theire "fun" and 90% NOT ?
    Fun and Balance in UO has a odd meaning :(

    There is nothing criminal about opportunists taking advantage of a situation. Fel cannot stand on it's own without carrots.

    UO's pvp is out of date. There is no murderers any longer. People may like to complain or argue that point but there is no part of UO where someone can kill you without you consenting. Even on Siege you consent when you login.

    As for the Golden days quote. You should take special note of that quote. It was carefully worded for emphasis. It has particular meaning of things to come.

    Draconi and to the rest of the Dev Team, you guys rock! This pub 56 has certainly been one of the best so far since I've been playing back in 2000. Anyways I just wanted to say that. Asides the few bugs here and there, yes there is lag, and yes it's not 100% perfect but all in all it's really been fun. I'm sure the invasion will be turned up even more once Nov 17th hits so I'm not too worried about that. Thanks for the fixes, I'm sure ppl will be happier now that gossamer drops have increased, loot specs increased and etc. Keep up the good work!!!

    QFT,

    To really end the long standing non-consensual pvp debate I would really like to see a simple message added when entering a red moongate or loggin into Siege.

    "You are aware of the rules of this land and are giving consent to be killed, robbed, or worse.......would you like to proceed?"

    ha ha ha!!! well, even without that warning, it's fairly evident for first timers what they're getting into when they end up taking a dirt nap within 20 seconds of entering Fel, which is what happens to me each time i venture over. i would imagine most players know the potential for disaster when they head over there. especially since young chars can't go even if they want to (without removing their young status early).
