UO Second Age Inquiry

    I have been searching for the patch notes to this era, specifically combat mechanics due to a debate I was having, and was hoping somone could help me with my memory and provide some factual resource(s) behind the answer. The question in regards is When casting a debuff on a target (Clumsy, Weaken, Feeblemind) to disturb a players spell cast who was already pre-debuffed (let's say in the beginning of the fight because it is commonly used in the openers), did the spell fizzle or did it just 're-cast' and re-disturb the target hence making it a viable disturb mechanism in PvP? The way I remembered it was the latter, by letting you cast a debuff as many times as you wish assuming you had the mana available and skill high enough to do so. Unfortunately, I cannot find a patch note or developer note that backs my theory up. Any help on if I am right or wrong would be greatly appreciated!
     
  2. If memory serves me correctly, that is how it worked...you could de-buff all you wanted and it would break casting.

    I have researched that Storm but my issue with that source is that it is a Wiki. I could very well make and edit a page on there to say I could polymorph into Lord British if my magery was high enough. I would presume that stratics has somone credible enough to step in and lay down the answer here.

    Wow, just the other day I found an old backup of stratics from circa early/mid 99 that very well might have this info. I'll look for it tomorrow as it's late now.

    Note: When I say the other day the truth would be more like a month ago... I guess it still exist.
