    Now that the SA dust has settled, and the majority of PvPers are not making gargoyle chars, can we have a quest/craftable way to turn garg-only weapons/armor into their human/elf equivalent?

    Such conversions shouldnt be taken lightly....and putting those slasher of veil claws, primeval liche dust, stygian dragon heads to good use would be a cool idea.

    Garg-to-human: 5 Slasher claws + 5 Dragon heads
    Garg-to-elf: 5 Slasher claws + 5 Liche dust
    Garg-to-everyone: 5 Slasher + 5 Dragon + 5 Liche

    Or throw in some void cores or other rare SA ingredients.

    On the note of other ideas, daemon bones should be a crafting ingredient too for daemon bone armor! And dragon scale armor should get some loving!!

    How about we just let the work on the current bugs in the game first, before adding new ones...

    ... the Reverse conversion is more necessary.

    I'd say good point if they'd EVER do that... I'm betting EA's bug policy is to add new things to the game until something breaks and then fix it after it's been broken for a week, unless it's uber broken. So though what you say is what I want, I know the DEVs aren't going to just fix bugs, they're going to add stuff as content increases subscriptions more than a bug fix does.

    You can argue that more people would play if the game had fewer bugs, you'd be right, but only in that player retention would be higher, subscription increases = New content for the "Does this fix what I loved about UO?" Or for the few true new players who go "oooo shiney."

    I think they would be better to see why people aren't making/playing gargoyles particularly, and address that.

    Lack of item conversion could be a factor in it, where people are unwilling to convert their existing characters, because they would lose a lot of their equipment.
    But, I think that gargoyles are proving to be undesirable, in terms of how they work and what they do. Until that is addressed, I don't thing allowing item conversion would fix anything really.
