    Iam opening this thread maybe you have cool ideas what todo in Ultima Online these days?

    My friends and i have a problem with UO because of the lack of content.

    The thing is we have killed any bosses of UO, we dont want to repeat because there is nothing to get from, no good item, not enough gold, no resources nothing.

    Champ Spawns are all done and here the same the droprate of the so called replicas is not 30% it is too low like 2% for all people doing the spawn, another aspect why it is useless is 90% of the replicas are useless. Also here no really clue to do it.

    So what todo next, gardening -> rised garden beds -> no good income of seeds anymore and booring.

    Hmm PvP maybe, but 80% of the day there are no people to play with and the other time you got problems with lagging players (EC), mirror images of players (EC) and last but not least crashes (EC). So after sitting 5h in Despice you are moving a bit and crash and die because 5 people came in.

    New event content, very hard to kill, but the loot is more than bad, no artefacts, no resources, nothing really usefull, the only thing for what that event is to destroy your equipment, very bad :lame:

    Overall Ultima Online in general is very booring at the moment, iam the only one, what you are doing the day in UO?

    Atm? Training a new mage-fisher-scribe on a new shard. (Mainly for personal reasons. My main chars are splitted among two accounts. I mostly play only 7 of my chars, so I could close one acc and merge/rebuild the active chars on an other server. Only that i am a slow player and really need a long time for the preparations for such an action.)

    Hmmm what am I doing... well here is a list of my activitys this last weekend.

    Origin - Sorted bods, made kits for son's character to 120 tailoring and getting her ready to move to other shard as help for him there. Sorted rune books and made 3 more books for the library. Fed the fish and watered the plants.. went hunting for box of items we shipped in for muesum ... lost it?? no it was in the museum all the time in the to be displayed boxs!

    Napa - Went fishing up sos's...made 2 mill and got more crab and lobster for other fisher's quests (yes 2 gm fishers) Made items for vendors and planted more flowers and plants for sale and my use. Watered and fed my fish... great way for that extra mib. Unraveled the junk from the chests and gained on imbuer, filled vendors and started to make kegs of potions, collected resources for various other uses and moved to next shard for next work load.

    Atlantic- Took new tamer and her mare for a jaunt and gained skill points, did some shopping and helped a guild mate by loring a critter he couldnt kill... then termur wisps are tough to kill... Helped son shop and deco 2 new houses we droped in.

    Catskills- Took my 120 tamer out for a spin and see what trouble I could get into..., Did some packing up of things for a move son forgot to take with him and the stuff for Traveler to take on his shard hops back to Origin via other shards where he will drop off and pick up things needed.

    Siege P.- Sorting tons of things and finally finished my towers deco, planted flowers and seeds on roof... after I just cleaned it up- I mess it !!!! Got mini tower clean and redecoed with usefull things, next project is the villa !

    Oceania - Fed and watered the fish and plants... went shopping and got some neat stuff, went hunting for junk for imbuer to gain off and had fun doing it. (what can I say I enjoy hunting critters), Finally got all the castles keeps towers and big houses striped down and started my spring /summer deco project... face lift!! It's where I refloor and wall cover everything and add in the new furni, rares and em event items for effect. I'm gunna be on this one like the 405 freeway crew! thats 10 of the 14 houses there!

    Sorry there wasnt more... I was a bit lazy this weekend .. went to see Harry Potter with the kids!

    I do have projects going on Sonoma,Baja,Pac,Chessy,and Hokuto but ill save them for next week...
    Fish hunt explore go find a friend and do something crazy like make a few new friends....

    Bored is what you make yourself when you forget how to imagine nd get inspired to move..

    Got tired of the other shards a while back and decided to try Siege instead of just calling it quits for UO. Fell in love with Siege and am having a great time there. Maxed out my peace tamer's skills and my miner/LJ's skills in less than two months, bought a bunch of soulstones and went to town on all the crafting skills and finished the crafter in less than three months. Now I'm working on three more characters. I don't PvP at all unless I'm literally forced into it and then it's anyone's guess as to how it will end up. I spend a lot of my time crafting for friends, guildmates and to keep my Zento shop stocked; gathering resources for the crafter; making gold through PvM to buy more power and stat scrolls; helping out a bit with the NEW guild; and growing tons of plants. Next on the agenda are taking up fishing; training and juggling skills to try out treasure hunting; and figuring out which character should train up poisoning skill. After that, I just might decide to try some PvP....

    I am quite serious about this. If not this crew, then perhaps another. I will see if the OP really is up for a new challenge.

    That is why Siege needs to survive. When folks hit that wall... A change that is just a twist, not an entirely different system is often the answer.

    And no matter what anyone says... Siege is not a PvP shard. There is no such thing. Siege is what it is. Many play Siege and never "PvP". They might defend themselves... That is another story.

    I started on Siege recently. I wanted a little more of a challenge without all of the overpowered templates/items that I have on other shards. I insisted on doing it the hard way and only accepted minimal help in getting started (there's something fun about killing mobs to fill your spellbook - but I have to Thank Petra for giving me the level 8 spells).

    It brought back a lot of fond memories of bygone days and showed me what a tight knit community where everyone really knows everyone else can be like.

    Atlantic will always be home for me, but the Siege community is certainly worth spending time with.

    Life on Siege, believe it or not, is simpler. Yes you can go all out for uber gear, but you can also just pick up a crafter made suit and do very nicely. Things wear out, things get looted, so there's a constant demand that needs to be supplied.

    Everyone has at least one spare suit. Fishing rods, hatchets, all wear out and have to be replaced. And surprising as it may seem, the general chat is actually full of general chat.

    oh, what am I doing? Well, I'm fishing, but I'd rather not say where right now. There's pirates on this shard that aren't controlled by EA's AI and they scuttle boats if you're indiscrete about your location :D

    Never seen anyone put it that way before. Out of curiosity Kelmo what guild do you belong to? I have not played siege in a very long time....Might consider trying to convince my small group to go at it, I enjoy replaying the game anyhow, just recently restarted playing on atl, when I say restarted I mean all new characters with no help (brings the fun back a little when you have to work for things.)

    My guild is Siege. I am not the only person offering up space. Not many can offer up a whole house (or two), but many will give folks a box, a room or even a floor. All you have to do is ask and work with the house owners.

    Typically I do nothing but train skills on various characters, deco and design things....

    Go on hunts by myself.. lately I've been finding myself doing fewer and fewer things.. and logging in maybe 2 or 3 days a week...

    Waiting for Clean up Britannia and the next chapter in quests for Zhah...

    Other than that I'm not doing anything in UO.

    I was just curious, I can actually afford to drop a house on another shard to place one on siege if we so choose. We have resources enough but the offer is welcome because it is kind.

    When I started there I was determined the char would make it on her own. She joined NEW, but the only thing I asked from them was help getting a fire beetle. You can't buy skills, you can't sell to npcs. But there's a hell of a feeling of achievement when you succeed that can't be matched by doing things the easy way.

    I'm helping returning players with gear constantly it seems, but I love doing it. Right now I'm working on a nerve strike dexer PvP template and suit, with 120 med. I also like to get Medusa keys and do the Ilshenar champ spawns whenever I can. Those things alone keep me really busy.

    I'm also getting used to some new macros on my newly suited and scrolled up stealther/deathstriker. I'm also running around scouting IDOC's today. UO never gets boring for me :]

    ...

    Let's see... what am I doing?

    My fisherman is making rounds through the various quest stop locations working the fishing quests, building up and fetching SoSs (thanks to the insane easiness of adding them to the EC Atlas in Pinco's UI)

    I have 4 characters getting BODs at least once an evening, more if the timeframe allows

    My melee character has been making Hyth runs to collect junk classic (BOD based) metal items

    My miner/smith has been mining in Fel taking advantage of safe locations and double resources and combining the junk metal items into junk BODs, smelting the extra items and using that metal to fill the Exc. Iron deeds for a mass turnin/repull

    Every week to 10 days I pull the resources from my stump and ore carts (which tends to take a bit of time considering there are 22 carts)

    Playing DDO, I pvp mostly in UO so I thought I would try out some good pvm. It's been enjoyable so far.

    UO is an amazing game but it has too many flaws for me. I am sick of having to deal with things that should've been fixed years ago.

    I'm thinking of finally doing some more fishing stuff now that I have a better fisherman. Also ditching a couple of accounts/houses that were serving no purpose other than to hold spots temporarily.

    And I'm going to start reading Harry Potter fanfiction to people in Luna to make them feel better about themselves.

    I just finished up 120 fishing a week or so ago, as well as making my PvM-only chiv-mage's dream suit (it includes TWO casting focus items, as well as a Pendant of the magi and Orny, and is STILL near max resists, while having capped LRC, LMC and 60% SDI if I'm holding my Scrappers).

    Next on the agenda is training up mining to move over on my main T-hunter (that even with all the tricks of the trade, has been incapable of digging maps since the changes, even if I use my OTHER T-hunter to show him where it is), getting Provo up from 112 natural to 120 natural on my Tamer/Bard, and finishing my Archer.

    I also need to start back doing BODs - the stockpile of 80 POF I built up last year, to concentrate on my Imbuing training (as well as on Disco and provo on said tamer/Bard) is about to run out.

    Nice idea bard thunter never had such a character, sounds interesting.

    But my main problem is that i have all i need and more, there is nothing ingame what i can get to become better, in the past i always needed a few scrolls or a new armor which needs a massive amount of work and luck and now iam lucky but boored ;).

    Also it is very hard to get a really good income today only from hunting. Trading is another thing.

    Me, heh, I was just named co-co-leader to my new guild and its my job to keep everyone doing spawns and peerless. I have been organizing players into roles training up newer players to be able to do some of this content and gathering keys. I know its old stuff for some but when ya get a new group mixed with vets that cant be bothered this stuff can really bring everyone together!

    Aside from that I just finished re making my bard and as always the bard is a lot of fun!

    Don't look for 'become better', don't look for 'good income', instead look for 'fun to do'. I once spent ages herding a dragon from chaos all the way around Ilsh to Valor, didn't get a single item or gold piece, but I enjoyed doing it and wrote it up as a guide on herding for the site.

    Well for myself, Summer time is probably the most boring of time
    in UO ever, every summer cuz people get rl outdoorsy
    and we see less folks IN game than most seasons.

    Sooooooooooooo since where I rl live hell hot and humid,
    summer time is hibernation time down here. :)
    Aside from some rl outdoorsy gardening,
    I try to get into UO to stay in the air conditioning
    more so in summer, than the rest of the year.

    But LESS folks are in UO in summer time...zzzzzz
    thus all those smith bods been sitting on 2 shards
    for forever, undone.
    I am finally DOING all my smith bods, on both Ches. and Siege alike.

    I also found to my surprise, somewhere to mine saltpeter on Siege.

    I never thought I would find it in such a weirdo somewhat scary place,
    in fact when the enormous golden rock showed up,
    it about scared me
    having never seen it pop up before, wt ??

    I had not even tried to mine salt peter so had no clue,
    what that enormous big golden rock was that I mined up.
    I moused over it and it said something bout salt peter. GASP !

    Now I seem addicted to this weirdo spot
    tryin to mine up more salt peter on Siege.

    I must replicate [if I can] to do same on Chesapeake in same area,
    but the area is quite different per shard so,
    it may be just on Siege where this find
    of salt peter find, can happen/be found.
    We shall see !

    Back to trying to earn my first val hammer. 3 of 7 to go BODs, and nothing in the last 18 months. I like to keep the BS meter pegged rotating few hundered BODs and still no closer to a val hammer. Mind you I like the odds and untill I have a vender with a handfull of val hammers to sell, not really going to pay UO much attention.


    OH GG for fishing when I remember. Got lucky on getting a 120 PS so kinda took the wind out of those grind sails.

    Reinstalling UO because one of my RAID 0 hard drives crashed.

    The whole point of RAID is not having to reinstall after a drive failure.

    No, it's not. I suggest Google and looking up Raid 0.

    RAID 0 is not fault tolerant. A RAID 0 is all about speed.
