    Can we please please please get some way to obtain these in-game?
    Can we get a revamped Bod system where u add in the types of armor/weps that are missing from the game and add new rewards for them.. Such as one reward say being a 1 charge reforged tool?

    I just think it is insane that ever since reforge came out its as if they lowered the % of a succesfull enhance on items with out the tool. If you reforge a piece of armor and try to enhance you are going to fail and break it about 19 in every 20 tries. Esp with Carpentry items like woodland armor.

    Was the whole point of only being able to reforge items made of plain leather/Iron ingots and not colored leather/ingots. Put in to force players spend real cash to buy these 100% enhance tools?
    B/c that is def what it feels like esp with how low of a chance u have to actually get a succesfull enhance..
    That is the only reason that I can think of why they didnt have reforge like useing a runic kit the normal way. Were u are able to use a armor made of say barbed leather or verite ingots to reforge...

    Seriously can we get these in game!
    Must you try to squeze players for every little penny we have?

    Can you make Powder Of Forts combineable like runic kits?

    Can we also get a Scrolls of Alacrity books allready?? We have Bod books and SoT books how hard is it to add in one more type of book?

    One last complaint =) can we get the max bank check updated allready! Instead of 1 million being max can we get checks upto say something like 10 million?

    I think these are some minor requests that every player in the game would like to see!!

    Your demanding but I agree with you...

    I have a ton of 100% elemental weapons with some rediculous mod that I would like to reforge to something useful.
    Ditto of the POF's
    As far as the Bank checks, get rid of the bank box visible gold all together and have 1 money account across all characters and anything you buy (from any char)comes from the one account.
    Let's also get books for the power scrolls...

    Even before you were going to fail 19 out of 20 times when trying to enhance, especially woodland armor. There are multiple threads here that talk about that and I know from personal experience.

    To the best of my knowledge the chances to enhance an item have not been changed. It is no harder now than it was before the forge metal tool went on sale.

    You can still go the reforge for specific property then enhance then Imbue. There are plenty of ways to make comparable armor but some of us are perfectionist and are willing to spend hours failing just for that one max piece. I for one can live with good enough and not worry about getting the best.

    You can still buy the tool from player vendors with gold..... I really do not understand why it would need to be put into the game. So the game company gets some extra $$, I personally would rather they are happy with the existing item shop and not make the game FTP where everything cost $.

    It is pretty simple, how much is your "time" worth......

    - If you do not spend $, you have to spend additional time to farm and create multiple pieces just to absorb the fail rate.
    - If you do pay that $1, you can just gather enough to make 1 piece and call it a day.

    If I recall correctly, the tool was put in because we requested it because people would rather pay that $1 per charge instead of hours and hours farming.

    $1 versus banging your head against the RNG against a really lower % of success (hours of farming) which one would you pick......

    If they do put it in game as a quest reward, they will probably limit the quest timer to once every month and you need to spend about 24 hours of farming time to get 1 charge.... People are still going to complain about about timer length and how much time it requires to get one charge. It is a no win situation.

    I think for runics, special ingots, special woods, etc..... should be able to get by doing quest from different type of characters. We could just keep the current system (since there are just way too many scriptors). But at the same time, should add another chance for legit players to get the runics, special ingots, special woods, etc...

    At this moment, UO doesnt offer this type of chance at all. For example, if I am a hunter, there should be a way to get special ingots and special woods, and that % chance should be higher than just mining or chopping woods.

    Why? Because mining + chopping woods are done by scriptors 100%.. Dont tell me you look at the screen for 24 hours and then that you have collected 349083498348 stones of ores and woods!! I smell BULL XXXX!

    As for enhance tool, I agree there also should be a way of getting it in game. But it should require it NOT able to be scripted.

    Like fulfilling multiple "RANDOM" quest which is not possible to be scripted at all.

    For example,

    Quest 1: (RANDOM) [A] [C] [Get quest in (random) town NPC name : A]

    A = get 10 ingots , [give finished quest item in (random) town NPC name: BBBB]
    B = get 11 ingots, [give finished quest item in (random) town NPC name: CCCC]
    C = get 12 logs, [give finished quest item in (random) town NPC name: DDDD]

    After finishing the quest, NPC [A] WILL not offer quest again for the same player and the player will have to find another NPC in order to receive the similar type of quest again.

    This way, players cannot make it a repetitive actions in scripts, and must be doing the fulfilling the quest legit.
