Gaseous elementals (Air, fire, etc.) need to revert to their old loot style.

    You know what I really miss? Back in the day when loot from elementals that should go POOF when they die dropping directly on the ground. No dead slime corpse mysteriously appearing full of the loot.

    We need to go back to that for immersion's sake. It was cool, it was a uniquely "UO thing," and I think it would help differentiate UO from its modern trend of me-too-ism in aping modern MMOs.

    This is the line you're drawing for immersion?

    No, it was just a random thought about what would improve it, that's all.

    That would be cool.

    I'd like to see em go back to being able to loot players corrpses in Trammel, a few minutes before they poof forever.

    That would be a good reversion, too. No sense losing it all to the ether.

    It was changed to having a corpse because players complained of their loot being stolen.

    Yes, and it was a bad change.

    All said up until it is your hard earned loot on the floor... However it would make little to no difference these days at all anyway... whens the last time you actually saw someone else in a dungeon?
