    After I consolodate down to two accounts on Origin, you will find me playing on one of my three characters here.

    I have already been sporadically training one character. I forgot just how hard it was to raise skills period (Especially taming skills and magery).

    In the coming weeks I will be looking to buy an 18x18 or so house and am considering doing the auction house thing here on Siege as some of my older contributers on origin are no longer there and are here instead and have suggested I do it here once a month.

    I look forward to encountering you on Aresia Darksong in the future.

    Not all tamers pvp, even on Siege.

    Cassie: Unless you need to be near a town or moongate you wouldn't need to buy an 18 x 18, there are spots you can place one.

    Cassie, I reactivated one of my closed accounts a couple of weeks ago to play with housing designs (didn't want to deal with a possible wipe on TC). I placed an 18X18 within 10 minutes, in a low spawn area. As Petra says, unless you are going for a special location, you will not have any trouble.

    Thanks Petra! I was considering nearish to a moongate, or another location where I currently have my home on Origin would work too.

    Mechanic: Well, as I have always had a mage tamer, with 110 eval, 110 mage and 110 med, I feel my pets are just companions that back me up. I don't believe in the whole stealthy tamer thing. *considers* in all honesty the only stealthy character I've ever had was my thief/spy for roleplay purposes.

    For some strange, and probably retained from the day sof old, Magery has a way into almost all of my templates, even though I don't think tanks are efficient anymore, I still play one.
     
  6. If you interested, cybernickle has begun transfering gold to and from siege, he is a highly trusted broker and if you can stomach his transfer rates, it would be a nice boost your wallet here.
     
  7. there is an open 18x18 one screen south fromt he road directly out umbra west bridge...
    The fact that that plot is free goes to show how many spaces there are across the lands:)

    Having been a broker in the past and currently without much funding on Origin, I have been selling full soulstone tokens here at the rate of 2m per soulstone....Though if he would be interested in brokering a Legends keep for money here...heh.

    I need my sanity checked....and...*thinks*....Because you know...being back to 3 accounts is just insane...*mutters about having been down to two for a long time from 4.....

    Everyone that knows me knows I &lt;3 PvP win or loose. It's probably what I do more in any game (Pirates and WoW, yes I play those too, but UO and I have a love hate relationship). I have a feeling Siege might respark my love for the game at least partially.

    Anyone have advice as to which skills to level up first?

    From helping noobs for a long time start with 50 tame and 50 of some other expensive/tedious skill to train.
    mage med eval vet and animal lore are very easy to get to rot in a day.
    Either join NEW or just ask someone to loan you a noob mage training suit.
    100% lrc and a neg 29 SC weapon and you will be 70 in a few hours.
    I have a keep on ice with a box of things on the front steps for friends if you would like to go train out there.

    Hey now!

    I've been to Luna several times on Siege...it's empty. It makes me wanna cry.

    And i haven't been killed once yet. I met this really nice gentleman on Moonglow where I was training up that told me he was working on similar skills, showed me his nice house by the farm and everything else.

    .....and I already told you, no stealthing on any of my characters unless they be a thief....and I am trying to not be a bad girl (I'm naughty enough as is thank you very much).

    I need to hook up with NEW...i know it's like a 30 day program? Problem is I play so sporadically of late 30 consecutive days of play is not happening LOL

    I placed in the spot he is talking about. It is pretty close to Umbra and a short run to the moongate. If you want it, its yours for free if you will run an auction house there.

    OMG!!! This can't be. I've read UHall and they all say that they are killed, reskilled x50 within the first 30 seconds they start on the shard. How could this possibly be?...la

    I recall that happening to me.....

    It was November 22, 1999, Vesper, Great Lakes......

    I didn't know the difference between NPCs and players at the time....hell I didn't know what an MMO was that time. Hubby said "Here try this you'll enjoy it."

    Next thing I know I'm dead just oustside of Vesper to some red calling me a newb.

    A few days later...rinse and repeat with a new character. I didn't know back then when I started that if you died, you just went and found a wandering healer and continued on your merry way...oh no..i thoughtI had to start over....each time....

    Don't feel bad. I was scammed out of my Ranger gloves within minutes of my starting on Atlantic. LOL, some guy was hanging out near the inn where people used to first appear. He talked a couple of newbies into trading our newbie tickets with each other, then each of us sold the Ranger armor (he told us to select) to him for 500 shiney gold pieces, lol. With that, he welcomed us to the game, laughed, and recalled out...la

    Welcome Miss Darksong. What a lovely name.

    I don't PvP myself, but I am sure you will find plenty of people who will indulge [​IMG]

    Enjoy your time here. As for housing spots, it has been said, you will find plenty of good ones. And you can buy the best ones.

    Kind regards

    welcome to the only real slice of uo left.

    i started on prodo shards before trammel existed.
    i played for a while on siege, then was enticed by the ease of "normal" shards and left . i spent quite a few years on prodo shards , but grew bored with it all and returned. best desision ive made ... havent looked back.

    i can tell you i have built gm tamers on more than a couple shards and siege was actually the easiest time i had taming . ive even taken my current guy to natural 120 here . rate over time sounds like such a hard thing but in reallity for skills like blacksmithy and taming its so much easier.

    for instance smithing on a prodo shard means sitting there for hours on end hammering out thousands of pieces to get your gains . here , you still have to grind your way up to 70 , but once you hit ROT, you make one item get your gain and log out . 10/15 minuits later you go back, make one item , get the gain ... rinse repeate. (saves you tones of ingots not to mention wear and tear on the old carpel tunnel.)

    same thing for taming . once you hit ROT you dont need to run around taming every critter on the plannet . you tame one, get your gain and go do something else . 10/15 min later do it again.

    personally i reccomend the polar bears at first , then snow cats and white wolves on ice island . wear crappy armor and cary an arcane item to gate in and out. if you get slammed , o well that stuff is easy to replace.
    thats assuming of course you ever see anyone out there ... hardly ever do.

    if you have low magery use a gate scroll (you can gate with 45 magery and a scroll ... takes a few tries but eventually will go off)

    i would mark somewhere where the apropriate spawn is thick then gate in, tame one , release it , kill it and gate out . you wont need pretames here . virgin wolves took me all the way to legendary. you might need to tame 2 on a rare occasion . if you tame more than that and dont get a gain you probably are over your daily max for gains (or you forgot to eat... never train hungry). see the sticky "mythbusting siege" for full ROT info (its good)

    you can try hitting the bulls at trinsic gate or delucia . you cant mark in del here tho . youll need to mark by the del passage in fel and walk in .
    no biggy again never anyone in there and its a short walk.

    when i returned to siege a few months back i looked all over for an auction house . i had grown quite fond of the weekly auctions on prodo shards. but i found noone here does that . i was even told its a trammie thing... (whatever) id love to see an auction house opened here , id come for sure =)

    i made a post here talking about the idea some said ohh that would be a great idea (like theyd never heard of such a thing) others said theyd tried and failed.
    biggest problem here seems to be the security issue . noone wants to spend big money and then lose the item right away.
    someone had suggested making a seperate room for purchases accessable only by teleporter . youd have to set all your chests to coowner and then friend each bid winner for access to the teleporter . after they get their item just unfriend them right away. yes thats extra work but it seems the only secure way here.

    the most eficient way would be to have a second person set as coowner running the vendor and friend list . put in 2 sets of teleporters . one set for the customer (set to friend) and one set for stalf (set to coowner). if you want to do it yourself youll have to design the house so you can access the house sign from where you stand to bark.
    (if you use the 2 person idea set your secures to owner only)

    some had suggested making the house private and only accessing certain poeple . youd have to have auctions by invite only tho and set up a day earlier for poeple to meet and get new customers on the list...even then it isnt foolproof. personally i prefer the teleporter idea . (why limit your customer base)

    if you want i can hook you up with apropriate runes and some food and arcane stuff, or if you need any help with the auction id be glad to help . pm me . i toyed with this idea alot and believe i have a workable design. i just dont have a usable house ... all my accounts are tied up with grandfathered houses on various shards.

    in closing, when the jerks get on your nerves, remember these few words of wisdom.


    dont get discouraged ... get revenge . &gt;=)
