    EM Asiantam: ok

    Mesanna: good morning
    EM Asiantam: about EM event
    EM Asiantam: it's laggy because of players using illegal tools
    EM Asiantam: here's the name

    EM Asiantam: they are increasing
    EM Asiantam: my client carsh everytime
    EM Asiantam: I get magic storm
    Mesanna: we do because we have no way to catch them except for macroing
    Mesanna]: do you mean telestorm?
    EM Asiantam: he is asking you to add penalty to them
    EM Asiantam: yep
    Mesanna: ok
    Mesanna: we check them for macroing
    Mesanna: thats the only way we can try to catch them
    EM Asiantam: so you leave them as they are?
    EM Asiantam: no penalty?
    Mesanna: unless we can catch them macroing
    EM Asiantam: then why do you ask us to page GM
    EM Asiantam: we do page them
    EM Asiantam: if it is not a macroing
    Mesanna: thats all you can do , let them do their job then
    Mesanna: nothing we can do
    EM Asiantam: you allow them to use illegal tools?
    EM Asiantam: can you let EM or GM send them to jail?
    EM Asiantam: I got client crash everytime
    EM Asiantam: and telestorm
    Mesanna: NO the GM looks to see if they are there
    Mesanna: then we need to look at your client
    Mesanna: or your system
    Mesanna: Bleak can maybe give some reasons why you crash
    Mesanna: when you teleport
    Mesanna: do you do it when you recall or gate?
    EM Asiantam: not only me who crash
    EM Asiantam: I have evidence
    EM Asiantam: pictures or movies
    Mesanna: we are done with the multi boxing issue
    Mesanna: I am asking about your crashing
    EM Asiantam: everytume I get crashed
    Mesanna: which client do you use
    Mesanna: classic or enhanced?
    EM Asiantam: classic
    Mesanna: how often do you get telestormed?
    EM Asiantam: every event
    EM Asiantam: he gets crashed
    EM Asiantam: and sometimes
    EM Asiantam: he gets 3 times crashed in 1 event
    EM Asiantam: he is insisting this is because of the multi boxers
    Mesanna: No its not
    Mesanna: if that was true it would be happening on many shards
    Mesanna: its something else causing it

    Mesanna: good evening
    EM Asiantam: Housing menu
    EM Asiantam: there are owner, co-owners are shown
    EM Asiantam: can you make change to the menu gump to show is this account is active or not, with the date?
    EM Asiantam: that we applied game time to the account
    Mesanna: of the owners/co-owners?
    EM Asiantam: yes when did they apply game time codes to their accounts
    EM Asiantam: so she won't miss to pay :)
    EM Asiantam: for game time codes
    Mesanna: thats alot of work to do on our side
    Mesanna: most just use a spreadsheet
    Mesanna: if they have multi accounts to pay for
    EM Asiantam: she is asking because many players left UO when they lost their houses
    Mesanna: I understand
    Mesanna: but what you are asking for is not an easy task
    Mesanna: and we are already tasked out for all next year
    EM Asiantam: she is sad to see many players left UO because of this
    EM Asiantam: and lost many valuable items
    Mesanna: so are we but that is not anything we have in our schedule for now
    Mesanna: I will keep it as an idea
    Mesanna: but no promises at all
    Mesanna: =)
    EM Asiantam: :)
    EM Asiantam: thank you!

    Mesanna: Greetings
    EM Asiantam: about peacemaking
    EM Asiantam: he is a bard and always cooperating with other players
    EM Asiantam: however
    EM Asiantam: he never gets points
    EM Asiantam: when he does Zipactriotl or Void pool
    EM Asiantam: can you fix it?
    Mesanna: peacemaking is not an aggressive act
    EM Asiantam: he sings for 11 hours at void pools
    EM Asiantam: but he was out of the ranking
    Mesanna: we have spoken about this several times
    Mesanna: it doesn't seem fair you are assisting others to get their rankings imo
    Mesanna: we will talk about it again
    EM Asiantam: thank you for looking in to it

    Mesanna: gretings
    EM Asiantam: about pub 95
    EM Asiantam: can you add Medusa scale as resources?
    EM Asiantam: so we can create armors?
    EM Asiantam: how about adding stmina +8 bonus
    EM Asiantam: do you like this idea?
    Mesanna: for medusa scale armor?
    EM Asiantam: yep
    EM Asiantam: adding scales as resources
    EM Asiantam: we know they are hard to obtain
    Mesanna: I got that part
    Mesanna: we do not have time to come up with new armor
    Mesanna: but I like putting the useless resources
    Mesanna: as something useful
    Mesanna: you can use them now for the lenses
    EM Asiantam: how about near future?
    EM Asiantam: is that going to happen?
    Mesanna: lol its not in our plans at this time
    Mesanna: but we will add the idea
    Mesanna: to our list of suggestions

    EM Asiantam: they are expensive imo
    EM Asiantam: particularly on Mugen
    EM Asiantam: can you look into it?
    EM Asiantam: to make them same as other shards
    EM Asiantam: for example
    EM Asiantam: anchors
    EM Asiantam: they cost about 3 times
    EM Asiantam: from other shards
    EM Asiantam: please look into it
    Mesanna: same as siege
    Mesanna: which Mugen is fashioned after
    Mesanna: except you guys have a trammel
    EM Asiantam: so it won't be changed?
    Mesanna: This is automatic because of what Mugen is
    Mesanna: no it will not change
    Mesanna: unless we change the rules of Mugen completely

    EM Asiantam: I am enjoying lockpicking treasure box in dungeons
    EM Asiantam: at Exodus Dungeon
    EM Asiantam: I am enjoying it and appreciate about this new additions
    EM Asiantam: but there is only one problem
    EM Asiantam: I think it is too difficult to lockpick
    EM Asiantam: for example I can open lv 3 treasure box by magery
    EM Asiantam: but when I use lockpicking
    EM Asiantam: I need a bunch of lock picks to open one box
    EM Asiantam: and those lock picks all have differenc charges
    Mesanna: have you tried the special lock picks
    EM Asiantam: we cant stack them
    Mesanna: that help with this
    Mesanna: that you can find in treasure chests
    EM Asiantam: yes he is using
    EM Asiantam: but it ends up soon
    EM Asiantam: how about let us craft skeleton keys?
    EM Asiantam: that special lock pick
    Mesanna: then people would stop doing treasure chests
    Mesanna: lol
    EM Asiantam: skeleton keys
    Mesanna: defeats the purpose of putting useful items in them
    EM Asiantam: according to him he get it broken more often than before
    EM Asiantam: when you did revamp of treasure chests
    EM Asiantam: and then how about make it lighter?

    EM Asiantam: for lockpicking
    EM Asiantam: please
    EM Asiantam: let us craft them or make lock picks lighter
    Mesanna: we will look at the skill but doubt we will change the weight on the fishing chests
    EM Asiantam: they are too heavy
    EM Asiantam: not a chest, lock picks
    EM Asiantam: they are too heavy
    Mesanna: we will talk about it
