    Ok, so I know white pearls come from fishing as random drops in your pack. I was fishing for several hours yesterday and not one white pearl but i did get others drop in my pack and I was in Fel while fishing in the deep waters. I have also been told that people get them fighting in Abyss so my question is:
    What is the best way to acquire white pearls without buying them from other players?

    It seems they are super rare now days.... thoughts?

    Here is what you do...

    Take your boat over to the east side of moonglow... You know the shipping lane were you can sail north/south non-stop. Sail around for a bit till you find one of the scripting fishers. Use your boat to block them, then board their boat. You may need some cannon fire to scuttle their ship if they have it set to private. From there you can loot their hold and the fisherman a corpse.

    If you don't find any scripters in Fel, you may have to try your luck in the same place in Tram. Scripters are generally a little more plentiful here, but might take you a few tries to find a public boat.

    Happy hunting.

    You didn't say what your fishing character's fishing skill is, but Is it safe to assume that your fisher has at least 80 real fishing skill?

    A couple of other ways to get them is by doing the hunting quests from Percolem or handing in items to Axem, both in Ter Mur. Occasionally you will get a white pearl as part of the reward from doing those quests.

    You can also get them as a reward from doing the merchant quests. I checked on the spreadsheet I made when those quests were first added late last year and I was keeping notes of what my characters were getting from doing those. I see several entries that indicate white pearls were the reward: (1) a 1-line quest from Britain to Minoc, no moongate used, killed 2 ambushers gave 7 pearls; and (2) a 3-line quest from Britain to Yew, used moongate, killed 0 ambushers gave 4 pearls.

    The ambushers gave white pearls?? Nice. I always peaced them and ran on because I didn't think they had anything other than normal loot. I've tried the merchant quests and done both no moongate and moongate but didn't seem to be any difference in reward. I'll have to check out the ter mur stuff. Thanks

    I don't think he meant the Ambushers gave them, he got them when he turned in the Merchant quest. The line #'s are how many different items were in his trade quest, as you progress in doing the trades, you go from 1 item you have to carry to up to 5 items in each trade.

    I haven't done any fishing recently but the last time I got white pearls I was fishing from the docks in Ocllo. Meaning I was getting them in shallow water.

    No, the white pearls were the reward at the end of the quest. I merely gave the details of the two quests to show you that it didn't seem to matter if your character uses a moongate or kills any ambushers as far as whether or not you might get white pearls as a reward. Using the moongate does, however, definitely decrease the amount your character receives of the reward item. If your character uses the moongate, the maximum number of white pearls you would ever get as a reward is 6, assuming you did a full 5-line order. If your character doesn't use the moongate, how many white pearls you would get as a reward will also be affected by the number of lines in the order, but will also be determined based on other factors (either/or distance and number of ambushers killed) and can definitely be more than just 6.

    Those renowned mini champ bosses in the abyss drop them, but its basically any one of those sort of ingredients(dark sapphire, perfect emerald etc), so I doubt that is the fastest way, I seem to gradually accumulate them this way while farming imbuing essences.

    Fishing anywhere, shore, dungeon or deep water will get you white pearls as long as your skill is above 80. It's random when you get them and you can go hours between getting them or get 2 back to back. Love UO's RNG. I wish they were as plentiful as shoes you fish up....

    Ever see a zombie or rotting corpse with shoes on? Nuff said.

    On a side note, wtf is a 120 fisherman doing still getting shoes? Any skill over gm should eliminate the chance of shoes!

    There is a better method than all of these but I am loathe to share it in case it gets nerfed.

    Okay. I felt it was quite bad form of me to say there was a better way without sharing it.
    I tried the axem quest first. I got three random uncommons for a lot of work so don't waste your time with that.

    What you need to do is go to the bottom of Gravewater Lake. (do the associated quest)

    Once there farm diabolical seaweeds. They are buggy, some you can't reach, water eles will hound you, hydras will try to kill you, those crab things are a pain in the arse,but try to stick to the southeast corner.
    The seaweeds drop all the uncommon gems, white pearl and all the lumberjack uncommons.
