    Greetings all,
    In this publish we are having an issue with our patcher which increases the size of the patch. Please do not be alarmed. You are going to see a 411 MB classic client patch and a 112 MB patch for the Enhanced client. We are working on a fix for the patcher so it will reduce the size of the patches you will be receiving in the future. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

    Publish 77.0.0

    Since the details mentions "Trammel ruleset area" and we don´t have that here I´d guess so but time will tell...

    Since the 30 day timer is "real" too and not ingame it doesn't matter for a lot of us as you'd have to put in about 8 hours a week into UO to wear the item out before 30 days.

    Another reason I quit, total unbalance. They should simply make it so when a faction member attacks a non faction member that they lose every faction item bonus, but if a non-faction person attacks first then all bonuses stay intact. I disagree with PK's killing random players who are non-faction with items the normal player has no chance of matching. Increasing the cost does not make for a greater balance. Forcing the normal player into a faction does not increase balance. More promotion + more balances + more fixes = more people starting and returning.

    Sprago (and a few others),

    Your inability to police your OWN members was one of the reasons I quit as well. You were too afraid that your own members would quit that you wouldnt correct them for the lamest of reasons. Add to that players that joumped on the hate bandwagon on any post I made as well. Siege lost me, someone who was a crafter restocking daily and played 6+ hours a day. I was a HUGE community supporter and player (just check my legs on Miss Siege, front and center). Along with faction inbalance that this thread quotes, it was also action and responce from you and the remaining PK community that helped finish me (and many others). Faction balance need repairing as well as peoples opinions that talking smack keeps people around.

    Sprago this is the 2nd time you've made this point and I understand your guilt on this matter

    The funny thing is Ed, towards faction gear anyways, I've made far, and i mean FAR better suits without any faction gear. The gear that the game is generating now is way beyond what faction gear could offer. In my opinion, if you're in factions nowadays, you're at a severe disadvantage.
    [​IMG]
    this is an example of stuff that is easily attainable now. Im not bragging by no means, just showing an example of the intensities that spawn up now. It covers all sorts of weps, armor, equip, etc. I've got an armor piece floating around somewhere with over 130 resist pionts along with other intensities. So again, in my opinion, if you choose to wear faction gear --- go ahead ;)

    Hellos Sir Morder!

    Where did you get that Liquid Gold colored bag below your paperdoll by the pile of silvers? Is it from a quest of some sort? Let me know please! :eek: It is so hard to find things that color!

    :mylittlepony:Thanks!

    Raja, Its one of the rewards from tossing a gold coin in the fountian in the abyss... alchemist satchel. One per person, you can toss 2 coins a day only if you leave them in a stack of 2. GOOD LUCK

    Raja,

    lucky coins randomly spawn on ANY monster killed in the abyss. I used to go where the slugs spawned and id average 2 or 3 for every 100 steaks I farmed for blackrock stew.

    Go thru deamon temple entrance, then up about 3 screens and walk right thru 2 hidden doors, its those slugs I farmed. but I also got many from the goblins and the little spiders outside the big night eyes spider. Im guessing thats probably called underworld, my bad.

    TheDrAJ, the sachel has no properties and is simply labeled differently and bright gold colored.

    Tjalle, yes ... those rotworms.

    and Raja, the puzzle board also offers deco pieces and a few other things besides the lucky coins.

    Good Luck everyone :).
