    Just post about the new boss here : First Exodus encounter

    Dont wanna add more than a bit thanks to devs for this new hunt. It s well done, fun to make from the start till the end.
    It just rings a bell to me concerning the other peerlesses. First of all why dont you change the key timers to make them the same that for Eodus ? i.e. a 1 week timer is great... gives us time enough to prepare things for guild.
    I understand that it was not welcome at the beginning when all bosses were overcamped but now most peerless places are empty on a regular basis...
    So if you give us a bit more time to gather sets of keys alike Exodus that would be great indeed :)

    Many many thanks again for a very good job guys,
    Lien Ragus

    Sold is the ley that makes me disagree, they need to have a timer likek 4 days so they CANNNOIT be farmed and sold my the non casual player for profit.

    But I do agreee with longer timer

    Yea, think it´s a good idea! Why not selling? The whole Exodus-concept is well done!

    I agree the other peerless keys timer should be extended and I think selling peerless keys is just fine. Another way for players to spend their time being productive gathering keys and a shows how diverse and flexible the UO economy is. Some people may not have the time, skills, 'whatever' to do the peerless so they sell the keys. More options for game play is "Mo' Betta'!!" :)

    I agree about selling them. If Bob doesn't want to spend hours farming keys, then let Billy sell him a set. A week long timer is good too.

    NO!! Timers serve a purpose, leave exodus as is, or meet in the middle with both.

    The week is perfect as it allows for a guild or alliance to gather up the keys with time to organize an expedition. That way you can set a time where all can join that want to experience the hunt, not just those that happen to be on when you farm the keys.

    I think I'd be inclined to gather keys and then say 'who'll go with me, I'll provide the keys'.

    I was responding to goodman thank you... The week long key is nice, but I would be fine with a 4 day key as well, that was my point. Was thinking a balance between the keys...

    IMO this is why Lady M is done so much more than most. You can collect the "keys" for her when you have time and then when some of your peeps are on you can do it. Unlike others where you have to know that your buddies will be on and want to do the champ in the next few hours, otherwise you're wasting your time collecting the keys.

    We been working to gather keys for a few days for our event : The Exodus Encounter
    The week timer gives us time to prepare to get keys and et extra keys for who don't be able to gather them all during the week .
    And i agree that the week timer should be implemented to all peerless, would make it to organize peerless hunts so much easier. :)

    What I want to know is what madness was it that drove the devs to make Taint the ingredient for the Ritual, when it's the only ML ingredient in short supply, because ALL the good ML recipes require 10 of it.

    Whatever happened to "finding uses for the unused and less-used ingredients"? I'd find 250 muculent a fairer cost than 5 taint.....

    Thats so true, there are plenty of no-use ingredients they could have used liek slasher claw, lodestone, fairy wings and some others....
