    What do they mean by adjusting residue for the cost of imbuing? More detail on that would be great. :)

    I assume this will allow for 7th and 8th circle mystic scroll drops. These gonna be on bosses only?

    This is a publish, not a patch. We don't need to update the clients for this.

    I'm not sure about that... they also listed 2 client fixes so I'm guessing there will be some patch that accompanies the publish. Perhaps it was the 7.0.0.2 patch that went out yesterday.

    I think the changes already went into effect. Imbuing just got a lot more expensive to train. Can no longer unravel oak bows for residue...

    No surprise there. I got on Origin and didn't notice any difference at all in the residue cost. Anyone else know what that line means?

    Hmmm...............
    Shouldn't the Loyalty be ALSO removed from those who got it off acid slugs more easily ?

    I mean, letting first comers keep their loyalty does it not disadvantage those players trying to get it after the change ?

    Maybe they are giving more resude on unravel?

    I dunno. They can't make this skill any harder/more boring to train. This past week of working Imbuing has made me realize all that I hate about UO.

    The skill is useless at low levels so you grind out a boring boring boring process until you get to a level you can actually use the skill to try imbuing weapons you can actually use.

    Making a DI 40% Lightning 30% weapon isn't going to do any of my characters any good... All Imbuing skill under GM is about worthless.

    Nothing like slugging away for 20-30hrs like a robot. I can do that at my job and get paid to do so instead of paying EA.

    All my friends that have quit this game are looking like the smart ones right now......

    Yes, imbuing is now more expensive to train. Gives less residue when unraveling.

    Why oh why don´t I have time to powerplay when an expansion comes out so that I´m not affected by those changes?

    Or it would have been fairer if Origin would have gotten SA by the same time earlier, that we got this patch earlier than the rest of the shards.

    Imbuing is absolutely horrific to train, yes. I've considered drilling into my skull while training it. Feels like I'm doing it anyway.

    If this really has gone to all shards, then the fix failed.. the ones I had trouble with still won't cut.

    this kinda sucks cause my crafter with 0 magery has been using these with some +magery jewelery and blade spirit scrolls to get loyality :(

    Adjusted the amount of Magical Residue vs cost of imbuing
    this concerns me, hope they didnt make things more expensive

    not true, i just did got 1 residue back from 1 oak exceptional bow.

    before i think i got 2? maybe they decreased it?


    edit i got what they did. you can ibue all the way up to 7% lrc now with only 1 residue :)

    instead it was 3?

    I absolutely despise imbueing. Where are all the complainers about the amount of god damn clicks? Seriously this is rediculous on the amount of clicks. Why cant they set it so it remember the last imbue u did and so fourth. I cant wait till i get higher and have to click 50 damn times to add luck to something what a joke.

    If i imbue something with rpd lrc and luck if i click to imbue the next item with rpd why cant it go right to my old number?

    I'm glad they made this harder though its not time consuming as it is now.

    While I don't think that the default UI for Imbuing is terribly friendly, there's a UOA macro in the Crafter's forum that will imbue items with a single keypress. With a little modification, it can be made to imbue the same item up to 10 times and then unravel it, all with a single keypress.

    I despise it too and I am only at 46. I started at 40 and it is hard to find things to unravel. Even most of the things in a level 1 chest said I didnt have enough embuing skill. I cant even imagine why they would reduce the resources from unravelling if that is what they did. I wish Chrissay would clarify what exactly they did and why.

    A better change would have been to add the ability to at least lock in that dam %!! This menu doesnt seem to be designed with training in mind. :(

    If you start a garg with 2000 points you can get up to 10k points killing slugs in 4 hrs. It's not hard.

    You can get it in 5 or 6 killing toxic sliths. I don't think slugs were that huge an advantage.

    i cant believe the make imuing MORE expensive..
    its not bad enough our crafters have to fight monsters to gather high end ingrediants.. and then unravel expensive artifacts to get relics.. but now to gain skill we cant use cheap items??

    It is ridiculous...if I didn't have work tomorrow and a little one to take care of I'd spend the whole night unraveling oak...
     
  42. It would seem that the patch did little to help make the game better but did make it harder for people. I am not sure what the people in charge were thinking but instead of helping people who play strictly crafters they made it more difficult to do things. Needing a relic fragment for low levels of imbuing is just WRONG.!! All the quests need you to be able to kill things, that most crafters cannot kill, some are difficult for full PVM/PVP templates to do. I though imbuing was this great skill to help level things out. But now it is moving away from that. Increasing the hit points for the keys will not stop camping but will make it harder for lower skilled players to do it. Nothing about the handling of this is making alot of sense game or business wise

    Yup. Our beloved game is being managed by people who seem to be like the owners of the Indians in Major League. They are doing their best to sabatage the game at every turn.

    Imbuing sucked eggs as it was implemented and now its going to be worse? Are you trying to make everyone script?

    Seriously. I could count paperclips and it would be more fun than training imbuing.

    The new expansion was good, but I admit the imbuing change seems to be a bad move. The expansion in general was still the best in years.

    Why don't you name a few things you like? Maybe the dev team can kill those in the next few patches.

    Its nice to have a new dungeon and new quest/things to do but....

    1 - Quest to get into Abyss/Underworld was borked. Didn't anyone see that robe camping comming?
    2 - Imbuing... Most boring skill of ALL TIME to train. Its even worse than poisoning.
    3 - Soul forges craftable at 75 but needing an ingredient that requires 95 to unravel. DUH.
    4 - Iron Beetles that are tameable but with essentially no purpose as they require taming to own. Oops. What intern went back to school and didn't finish that job?
    5 - Not all mysticism scrolls drop from monsters. Oops. Was that the same intern?
    6 - Gargoyle only weapons? WTF? Why not Elf only and human only too?
    7 - Item durability loss upped so high you can't complete a single spawn without needing repairs on your blade. Thats really fun devs. As much as I like crafting - you are making the game ALL about the weapons/repairs/imbuing/armor.
    8 - 10k loyalty for a crafter with imbue to use the queen soulforge? Really? Thats one hell of alot of 15pt quests. Don't tell me to turn my crafter into a fighter.
    9 - No moongate to the new lands? Awesome. I'm sure any new players making gargoyles loved being stranded in Tel Mur for a day.
    10 - Don't forget shard crashes when completing a certain quest and all the items that were lost the first day.

    etc....

    I agree its been nice to have an expansion - but its been pretty darn frustrating and the first patch out since is not inspiring confidence.

    Back to mind numbing imbuing training before they make it even worse.

    Wow, another AWESOME change to imbuing!! Way to continue to level the playing field, DEVS!! /sarcasm intended
