    With the high number of incomplete, buggy or broken features in game currently, which do you feel requires the most immediate attention?

    The EC has many, many bugs that need addressing.... and I hate to say it but it feels as if it's being abandoned much like the old 3d client was.

    They should do the legacy dungeones one by one: revamp the spawn and such. They should also then update the decor of their associated city so they don't look so sterile and lifeless.

    Then they need to do a MASSIVE magery revamp to bring it in line with other combat skills. Its damage output, unmodified with spellweaving, is PATHETIC.

    The half-done 'new player experiences' in New Haven. So many skills without learning missions, after all this time, is really poor. Even returning players could make good use of them, as well as the rarer complete new player.

    But yes, after that one, the Virtues system - it's incredible that a system so core to the supposed values and essence of Ultima is still such an incomplete mess, even what little has been done contains certain pretty much useless 'virtue skills'.

    If it's part of what makes UO unique, it says some worrying things about how those managing the game are thinking if it can be left in such a sorry state....

    Most important bugs to be fixed:

    Mysticism bugs:

    mysticism spells appearing in system chat on classic client instead of overhead.
    oversight by devs of the ability to cast netherbolt immediately after magic arrow without needing to use scrolls.


    EC:

    Inability to cast spells at same rate as CC

    Anything else i would not say is an actual bug as such.

    I'm surprised this has not been noted ...

    The GM system. Insure the GMs for UO have a decent level of game experience and understand it is not DAoC or War or WoW or whatever. Insure they know how to read the request for help and are 100% positive the answer is in the knowledge base before sending the response.

    For in-game stuff other than that I agree that dungeon overhaul, the virtues and New haven quests all need work.

    Well unfortunately I doubt the DEV's have any control over the crappy EA customer service.

    I am sure they have zero input or control in that department sadly.

    Though if we got a huge band of UO players together and all petitioned EA to hire decent customer service reps and tell them exactly how we feel about their deplorable service... they might listen but I doubt it, we are talking about EA.

    I'd like to see uses added to each town, I haven't been, or needed to go to Jhelom, Nujelm, Minoc, Umbra, Delucia or Papua for ages...

    Have Moonglow sell the cheapest reagents, Yew or Vesper sell the cheapest wood, Minoc the cheapest ingots. Little things like that.

    Item properties not displaying correctly! I was sorting deeds and ended up with a bag of horned leather deeds and very few spined which was weird since earlier that day when I made them up there was an equal number of each. I can see that I have alot more horned leather deeds than I do spined and click on all the deeds to make sure they are horned... they are *until* I close and reopen the bag then some change back to spined. I realize they were spined all along but there are issues in the client that cause these display problems!

    Today I was in luna trying to make this bug happen again and it didn't take long before I found a mistle tow deed, keg and potion that all had properties more fitting to a piece of armor! Not only that but they had the same property info except for the name which was correct.

    I think its possible... no... I think its likely many are having problems with this property bug and just not noticing how often it happens just because its not always so obvious!

    The Siege Perilous "system" needs immediate attention!

    The entire item property and loot table systems need a complete rewrite from scratch, so that 90% of the game could be worth playing again.

    First off, fix the general chat. Make it where if you are in fel then you are automatically moved to a pvp chat. Or something along the lines of that.

    Second, readjust monsters in this game to be somewhat competitive. If people can solo peerless then maybe the difficulty isn't enough. I would almost say increase mob difficulty by twenty percent.

    Third, quit adding so many new items with uber crazy mods. Now with imbuing, every person in UO is running around with a super crazy suit. Not just from a pvp aspect is this crazy, but also from a pvm aspect as well. See my second suggestion.

    Fourth, work on the EC some. It has the potential to be a good client. By good client I mean getting rid of bugs, making higher resolution images (if sticking with 2d images), and working on the performance some.

    some new system to allow greifing in trammel.

    Damage Increase for Stoneform to work in pvp, and the spell descriptions for mysticism(are either wrong or lots of typos).

    Slight revamp of magery and necromancy.

    indeed, it`s good.that`s why so many people do it, one way or another.

    it looks so horrible when a trammy uses the worst words to describe the process of griefing, just because he is too weak or feeble-minded to compete and develop strategies to defend himself.

    Sad.

    And yeah, by the way, fix that invisible Classic Shard problem.Haven`t logged on it for more than 10 years.
