    Way Back in Dec. 2012, in Ask And Answer# 12 the Dev team said they could give gargoyles a +5 bonus to mining. To my knowledge it has not been put in, could we possibly get this or maybe get some Talons that have a +5 Bonus?

    I think they may still working on some of the Ask and Answer No #1 suggestions, so be patience. ;)


    Ask and Answer No. 1

    Posted by Kai Schober | 2012 Sep 10 15:05 -0400 GMT

    You ask and we answer. In the last days our team took the time to address some of the questions that keep coming in. If you have something you want to know about Ultima Online and the team, post your questions on your fansite. All interesting questions will be collected and send to our team, so we can continue to answer them.

    Here are the first seven:

    1. Would it be possible to convert the older quests to the new Quest system? The older system only allows one quest to be active at a time. (Drachenfels, General Chat)
    Mesanna: Are you speaking about the context questions vs the paperdoll quests? I know this is not the answer you want to hear but without looking deeper into the code we can not give a definite answer for this question.

    2. Are Harpsichord rolls a permanent or time limited drop? If limited, when will they stop? (popps, Stratics)
    Mesanna: This is a permanent addition to the game, hopefully in the future we can add additional music rolls.

    3. Can you mention Fansites by URL in game.... there has been talk in the past you can and then some say you cannot (Rupert Avery, UO Auctions)
    Mesanna: Yes, you can advertise any URL in game on your profile as long as it DOES NOT sell any items.

    4. There's a number of items that were introduced with SA that resemble & relate to the other Imbuing crafting ingredients. But they have no current use. Fey Wings, Fur, Horn of Abyssal Inferno, Kepetch Wax, Lodestone, Primeval Lich Dust, Slith Eye, Vile Tentacles, Void Core. Are there plans to make all those items, or some of them usable at one point? (Nystul, Ask the Devs)
    Kyronix: We’re always looking for new and creative uses for underutilized ingredients and are currently working on adding some to upcoming content.


    5. Hello, I just want to ask a question about Distilling. Are there any plans to expand it so that wines, beers, ales and sake can be made? Thanks (Edward Striker, Ask the Devs)
    Mesanna: I will add this to our list of things to do, good suggestion Edward.

    6. Is there any plans to make Golems semi "bondable" at some point in time? The big problem with Golems nowadays is that not only are they mostly underpowered, but also that any training put into them is undone when they can die so easily. Another part of the solution, would of course be to lessen the cooldown incurred upon healing the Golem. The cooldown is currently like 30 seconds, which is WAY too long. It should be shortened to something like 10 seconds. (PlayerSkillFTW, Ask the Devs)
    Mesanna: We have talked about adding new golens to advanced Tinkering, but we are not going to add another golem to be a training punching bag for Luna.

    7. Are there any plans to review getting to and from certain areas of Siege? There are many places on the shard that you cannot gate to from the Ter Mur facet and also from many places in the Tokuno facet, for example to areas around Luna and also areas around Yew and Skara Brae. (When you try, you get a very unhelpful message that says your spell doesn't seem to work.) The inconsistencies make no sense at all and cause a lot of frustration for newcomers to the shard, especially when they work hard to make enough gold to place a house in an area that looks ideal for housing (because it's sooooo empty) and then find out that the reason for the emptiness is just plain old bugginess. (Tina Small, Ask the Devs)
    Mesanna: Tina we agree, and we are entering a problem report on this today.


    That's all for today, but we are sure you have more questions.
    Keep them coming and we'll see you in the game.

    The original question was to get the a +5 mining glove option for the Gargoyles. The answer they gave was that they wanted to give the Gargoyles a racial mining bonus. This doesn't really help the OP, but gives a little background. Doesn't matter, since at this point neither seems to be happening.

    What's that Mesanna? You're against 3rd party sites selling UO items? Then @&£&ing do something about it instead of turning a blind eye!!!

    I think they should expand the tiered quest idea into more quests and also make the tiers go higher and much harder to obtain, so that only a dedicated field operative can get to the top tier and it would be a badge of honor (accomplishment)

    As soon as we get the new revamped BOD rewards list. a list update that was overdue before the rise of the gargoyle race.

    I see no problem gargoyles get a armor piece like the mining glows with +1/3/5 mining piece as a bod reward like human/elf does - as long it will occupy one armor slot. I only hope the weight of that piece is lower than normal, as gargoyles got lot higher resist properties than humans.

    I am Ok with this as long as they are imbueable like the gloves, I would just like to have the bonus available in some fashion.

    The only place I can think of a racial bonus actually being visible is with Elves and their Energy Resist. It's quite possible the +5 is already there and works like Jack of All Trades for Humans but only applies to Mining.

    got to thinking, if it was in place. it would say so in the "racial bonus" book in your paper doll. so i am thinking it is still not in game. @Mesanna ?

    Adding fey wings to an imbuing property? I wonder what they could do with that. It's too bad there's no Fey Slayer, that would be an easy thing to use them for. Oh well.

    Heh, i remember that. Funny enough, with the Pet Revamp supposedly coming up, i'm gonna ask again if they're going to revamp Golems, or possibly even Hirelings. That cooldown on healing a Golem seriously needs to go.
    I was using an Advanced Golem with GM Tinkering the other day to kill Toxic Sliths on my craftsman for Gargoyle Queen Loyalty, and the repair cooldown was a serious pain in the ass.

    I would like to see 120 mining instead, with 100% chance to smelt all colors. Gm mining , plus the stupid gloves that don't work still = epic failure smelting, usually when you need them the most. It's dumb. Fix that, and while you're at it, fix the ridiculous fishing up of footwear at gm-120 fishing. Fishing up shoes should be for low levels only. Yeah I know , a goat will eat everything, I already know this. GM and especially Legendary fishmermen/women would never fight a fish for along time, only to reel it in and realize it was a freaking Air Jordan...come on.

    Ok since the devs would deem Air Jordans as overpowering, change that to Hush Puppies.

    There is nothing to fix because it isn't broken. It has never been written anywhere that all ore types have a 100% chance of success when smelting.

    I know that, but we also shouldnt have to smelt 1 ore at a time to minimize failures at 105 mining, whether by design or not. Its stupid now that locations are random and you can't mine valorite for 7 days in a row while at work.

    Neverrrrrrrrrrrrrr... Gargoyles are a race of royalty and should not have to be bothered with such meager things as mining their ores and stone... This is why humans and elves exist for them to enslave towards such lowly tasks, and in some cases even little goblins!
