    Just for clarification... are you saying we can CRAFT the HITCHING POSTS which are 11th Anniversary items or are you saying you've added the ability to craft the ROPES which renew charges on your Hitching Post when it's used up?

    Hey! No opening your gifts before Christmas!

    (translation: you cannot claim the gifts on TC, you only get to see them when Pub 57 goes live)

    They probably mean what they say about crafting the hitching posts, as crafting the hitching ropes is already live on the tinkering crafting menu.

  12. Hitching post is craftable....need at least 3 special ingredients.
    1 that doesnt show up on the list.
    1 is the rope
    and the other, is a minor arty...I'll let you login to test to figure that one out.

  22. You can do what every kid does... hack EA mythics and find out, and delete your trace route afterwards, and put some more wrapping on top so that it looks like new... oh wait... that is not right... something is wrong there :\

    I am glad to see that the drop rate for the new items on champions has been significantly reduced. This will make it last a lot longer.

    Yeah betting it's books from Doom since the steed is for the post.

    Regarding the slime, they really don't want us to have the ToT 1 dyes back. :(

    I'm glad they reduced it too, but let me point out that the non-PoF-ability of these items basically guarantees that these items will most likely always need to be farmed.

    Even if they hadn't turned down the rate.

    But yeah, it's still good that they have....90% for something was far, far too high.

    Hmm I bet it's something you have to buy. Doing this without purchasing something would prolly **** the JPN players smooth off.

    Very surprised there isn't more open enthusiasm for the slime event.

    I mean come on now.....How much did people want this until it's happening, and now there's even a few negative things about it???

    i'm hoping some of the colors = the 100% AoS colors, but probably that's just wishful thinking... but YAY FOR our OWN SLIME EVENT :D

    I don't think many people knew about it. Plus I doubt the number of players who truly fuss over the color their equipment is very high.

    There is one person in our guild who would love for it to happen, but when it came up the other 2 dozen people in the room were pretty meh about it.

    most of the fun of the japanese slime event was stalking the slimes and trying not to die long enough to get some bolts dyed LOL... my fondest memory is trying to get to the one deep inside Doom LOL... holy hell that was hilarious :)

    There was considerable agitation on these boards for this to happen.

    More than you saw, I guess.

    I'm kinda wondering where all the agitators are now.

    Personally I think this is going to be fun for a lot of people. I'm not one of them, but I'm betting it's going to be really fun for a lot of people.

    I saw the topic. The Stratics forum community is skewed towards this type of thing so you will get a lot of people wanting it on here. I bet a sizable number of people here would also be for pet dye tubs.

    i am personally psyched for the slime event. but pet dye tubs? i'm totally on the "just say NO" side of that one!
     
  44. Techno coloured clothing is bad enough... (even though i like it...) we should NEVER EVER IN ANY CASE... except test centers :D... ON SHARDS HAVE COLOURED PETS... that are different from their natural base colours.

    Clothing = meh i like but sometimes eye sore...

    Pets = NONONONON!!!!

    people = lets not start that

    We wanted it as a gift. We didn't want to have to either fight a scripting spawn camper for it, or pay outrageous Luna prices...

    He's tall, dark, and verrrrrrrrrrry handsome. Definite eye candy with brains. My guess is he would look good in a gunny sack (or nothing at all!).

    For Anyone who's logged on and done some testing.. 2 questions....



    1)
    Can this increase your physical resist above the 70% cap?


    2)
    It says monster in the description but does this mean ANY "creature" in UO or does Monster exclude things like Cows / Chickens / Aligators / "natural" critters ?

    It was when I'd been playing for about two months and looted a katana from a rat that I realised that Sosarian animals don't go wandering without preparing themselves. So, you never know.

    (We're not even going to get into the platemail I've looted off ice snakes. Where do they keep it?)
