    Greetings,
    We will push Publish 76.0 to all shards during the next early morning maintenance cycle on May 22. In preparation for the publish, the map files in Ver Lor Reg will be out of sync until then.
    For your reading pleasure, here are the completed notes:

    Publish 76.0.0

    Global Arc - The Awakening

    • The Awakening – Act VI Quest added
      • This quest will be active during Act VI of “The Awakening” beginning July of 2012 and will end August 12th, 2012. The NPC will tell you how much time is remaining each time you turn an item in on your specific shard.
      • During this Quest players will assist in concocting alchemical preparations. The alchemy skill is not required, but does provide a slight benefit.
      • The Alchemical Preparations are concocted by completing a puzzle that requires various combinations of specific ingredients.
      • The ingredients will always be the same, but the quantity required will change with each iteration of the puzzle.
      • Players will be able to complete the puzzle as many times as they wish, and are encouraged to try and procure as many preparations as possible.
      • The more preparations that are turned in, the higher the ranking when rewards are distributed.
      • There are four rewards available in both human gargoyle versions where applicable. The type of reward you receive is based on the race of the player who turns in the preparations.
        • Tier 1 – Sash recognizing your achievement
        • Tier 2 – Asclepius
          • When equipped during a complete healing cycle, the staff will provide a 20% bonus to damage healed using bandages.
        • Tier 3 – Hygieia’s Amulet
          • When equipped Hygieia’s Amulet gives a 15% bonus to Alchemy.
        • Tier 4 – Bracers of Alchemical Devastation
          • Occupy the Sleeve Armor slot
          • Hit Fireball 40% damage based on Wrestling or Anatomy & Evaluating Intelligence
          • Mana Regeneration 5
          • Faster Cast Recovery 3
          • Physical Resist 15%
          • Fire Resist 10%
          • Cold Resist 10%
          • Poison Resist 10%
          • Energy Resist 10%
      • It is possible to get all four rewards if you are among the top contributors during the event and any combination thereof (Tier 3, 2, and 1, or Tier 2 and 1, or Tier 1 only).
      • It is also possible to not receive anything if your contributions are not on par with the distribution of other contributors.
    • More details will be available from an NPC and through fiction posted on the Herald when this portion of “The Awakening” goes live.
    Gardening System

    • Vanilla has been added to the Gardening System.
    • Vanilla seeds can be found on Exodus mobs inside Exodus Dungeon.
    • Vanilla plants will produce vanilla and additional vanilla seeds.
    • Vanilla plants cannot be cross pollinated with other plants.
    • It is possible to get mutant colored vanilla plants using conventional gardening techniques.
    Covetous Dungeon Revamp

    • Level One - Still a great place to farm feathers but added a few surprises.
    • Level Two - Contains the Void Pool
      • Covetous Level 2 represents a new style of PvM for Ultima Online. Instead of farming monsters for treasure, the players’ task is to defend the Void Pool from Cora’s minions. Cora will invade the dungeon with endless waves of monsters. Each wave is tougher than the last. The monsters do not drop loot, and instead players score points for making kills or assisting in making kills.
    • Level Three - Cora and her Minions
      • When she was denied advanced knowledge of mana by the Codex of Infinite Wisdom, the sorceress Cora became enraged. In her pique, she poured all of her enormous energy into a magical spell and focused it onto the Codex. Despite the sheer power of the Codex, she wrested a few pages from its binding.
      • The magical blast also bored a hole through the Void between Places, anchored by a section of stone from the Codex’s podium. Cora and the pages from the Codex were pushed through the hole in space.
      • The far end of the hole erupted into the middle of Dungeon Covetous. Injured, and with her own ability to channel mana damaged, Cora retreated deeper into the dungeon. Over time, she recovered, and now sends minions enhanced by magic to attempt to capture more pages of knowledge from within the Void Pool.
      • Use of travel spells near the Void Pool in Covetous is impossible because of the twist in space, so Cora must gate her minions into the dungeon from a distance.
    • Void Pool Points
      • Once you have gained enough void pool points visit Vela the Sorceress in Cove.

    Hey team: Take great care that those Bracers are meddable....The term "Bracers" makes me think of bone armor, and I don't think that's meddable without the mage armor property, is it?

    And that artifact's clearly aimed at wrestle/PvP mages.

    I was thinking in game mechanics terms.

    I know that historically the term bracers or vambracers meant a metal plate armor piece attached to the forearms, used to augment chain mail in that particularly vulnerable part.

    But in game mechanics I think the only piece that looks like that in the arm slot is bone armor, so even if the piece is metal in an RP-sense it'll likely still be based on bone armor, assuming it looks like bracers look like.

    IMO the Bracers of Alchemical Devastation should require Alchemy, not Wrestling or Anatomy.

    Next part of the event...?

    So again.. competition disguised as co-oporation? With the added bonus of not getting anything for your work if you don't match up to people scripting it (if i'm reading how it works right)?

    I don't get the distribution of the Awakening IV quest items. Why would they make it so you can participate and not get a reward? IMO, make it so every character can complete the quest and get rewards from all 4 tiers.

    This makes my head hurt. Throw FC 2 on that shield like everyone originally thought was on it while you're at it.
    On a side note though I guess this opens up the game for some interesting hybrid templates again.

    I'm looking forward to the publish, but I'm a little disheartened over this:
    It is also possible to not receive anything if your contributions are not on par with the distribution of other contributors.
    Devs, you've got to be kidding. Please explain why this is necessary.

    Because this Team seems eager to punish their p(l)ayers during this arc's events for some asinine reason.

    Fun is a foreign concept it seems.

    Is it just me or have there been ALOT of 500+mb patches lately? And the patcher is painfully slow for CC here. Maybe I will get to log on before midnight. :)

    There are 2 ways to go at this quest:

    1) spread out the quest points among all your characters to try to get a bunch of lowest tier rewards.
    2) gather items with all your chars but turn in with only one to try to get the highest reward.

    Either way it's going to be a long grind.

    This is so true it hurts!

    I play UO recreationally and for fun. There are many of us that cannot compete with those that play hours and hours each day. I say just make it fair and let each character be able to receive each tier's reward once. You can play as many characters on as many shards as you have time and accounts. But at least that is fair to all.

    I only asked about the publish because as soon as I logged in I noticed the "visible chest" on the back of the damaged Tokuno ship is still visible... (there is one right in front of my house).
