[Inscription] Desirable spellbook stats anyone?

Discussion in 'UO Spellcaster' started by Sally Cinnamon, Sep 4, 2008.

  1. I'm so sick to the back teeth of making these things now (inscription upto 98.3 though so not long to go) but obviously have a serious amount I need to shift, I've sorted most of what I think needs to be donated to the library as suggested by someone on here the other day, but truly have no clue as whats desirable spellbook wise :(

    Slayers, and super slayers I know about - but even empty normal slayers fetch a staggering 200gp:sad4: at some vendors -- what about +skill? At what point does LRC become wanted, or doesn't it anymore? I do have one or two that look nice to my untrained eye but advice is more than welcome, I'm on Europa.

    What everyone is looking for is a super scrappers. But those require ingredients and a bit of luck.

    Some people look for a good book to complete a suit so LRC, LMC, FC/FCR, or maybe even + skills to compliment the right template & suit combination.

    Last but not least are the ever popular slayers & super slayers.

    BTW does arms lore apply to inscription?

    Well slayers and superslayers you have already mentioned. I also keep to sell any spellbooks that get 3 mod properties. I like any slayer that gets a Nice SDI bonus on it. All my suits are LRC proof so unless I see LRC on a slayer or a 3 property I have usually just turned them in, maybe I have gotten rid of a couple of good books but really for the amount of space I had being taken up by spellbooks I say good riddance hehe.

    When I had sorted out the 1's I knew I wanted i started sorting the other spellbooks and putting ones similar together then afterwards when I found I had a lot of 1 type I also turned them in at library, was amazing that I had 55 blood el slayer spellbooks and even though its a good book who can sell that many or want to hold that many I turned in 35 for example. Figured if I could make so many of 1 type of spellbook then so would most others.

    For skills combos any that work well together are good ie Magery and EI but on there own I usually keep just the 3 mod books but even still most of my 3 mod book I just sell at 5k

    for me the ones i keep and sell are 3 mod books that have something usefull..
    everyone can use mr 1, sdi 8 and 5 extra mana.
    so books that have all 3 get filled and put on my vendor.

    i also keep a bag on my vendors for doom books..
    those would be any 3 mod book that has elemental slayer, with sdi for extra hit and bonus to mana or mr. i know most people dont hit the df with spells, but if you got spellweaving you can hit it for over 500 dmg with wod and a slayer spell book.
  5. It won't be for a good few days I don't think, as I'm trying to create a shop at the moment and struggling like beggar cos I can't remember everything lol, but I'll post some piccies of the ones I thought were the nicest or that I have questions about if it's ok?

    I do a lot of running around during the day browsing at other vendors and what they're selling for, but sometimes find myself thinking 'wow thats expensive, and its still on the vendor..so whats the right price?'
  6. also, as a new GM scribe :danceb: (5mins ago!) I'm wondering if there is any difference between exceptional and normal books? Wasn't anticipating there would be but thought I should ask:D

    No difference -- just exceptional books made by a GM scribe can be marked by the maker.

    Congrats on making GM!
