I fianlly gave in....again...humm.

    I fought the 9th anniversary expansion 'till I couldn't any longer(2 years ago)

    I really had a bad time of it a few weeks ago with the (silly) loss of some hard earned items, namely the *neuvo bleu ring and bracer* set, because I didn't insure it. As they say these days...MY BAD.

    Felt really down in the dumps for the most part because I had saved most of the turn in items for so long, and had died so many times for the looted items, it just felt like a head shot to me.

    The short story is that I was billed before I could actually turn off my account, and since I pay for 6 months at a time, I figured "what the hell",I'll give it another shot.

    So I dug around, fished, turned in every concievable item I could, I have camped (2) accounts in dungeons simulaneously, as well as solo, untill I couldn't see straight, then I read a few posts about the so-called *event* to save "whoever" it was?? in the spider dungeon, and the other one to kill Melissa, and between all those activities, and the dungeon camping, I was able to replace the bracer/ring combo, and get two sets of armor; the sorccer's set and the ranger set. Not to mention 2 pairs of nocturne earrings...:)
    The funny thing is that I did it all with 2 accounts, of which there were 5 characters that were totally defenseless, and I did *both* parts of the quest. No new accounts or young characters, just my old stand by chars and alot of prep work.
    I have no idea how much longer this will be going on for, but my plans include another jewelry set, and the first, white armor set, if time permits. I am by no means a power player, but I hope this post will encourage those who are a little timid about doing these quests, they are really easy if you follow the instructions, and tips that are in the other posts in this forum. Most players are very helpful, this doesn't seem to be a dog-eat-dog set of quests, there is more than enough loot to go around, and that makes most players very easy to get along with.

    Good luck to all, and be good to your fellow players.

    I hope you recovered all the "important things in real life" that UO had caused you to lose. I also hope that your dramatic leaving post wasnt all about a simple ring set.

    That said, have fun in UO again.

    i think it's great you are giving it another chance Lord Richard, and that you were able to take part in the new event quests and get a replacement for your luck jewels, and some armor :)

    I stopped drinking when I was about 42, then took it back up 12 years later...go figure. There are some things in life that you just gotta go out and do before you either die or can't do them anymore. This is, after all, just mindless intertainment, and an escape from reality....at least it is for me.

    Yea...it is fairly easy to get the armor sets and whatever else you want from Clean up without having to create more accounts.

    did he just not say the reason he came back so soon was because he was still going to be charged for another six months. so i would think that would be reason enough.

    LOL , thats a good one :hahaha:
  14. dont stress the little things bud!
    the only constant with uo is inconsistency; alot like rl aye?
    that, i doubt, is ever gonna change since we have a 'new team' every time ya blink damn near.
    i stay cuz i have so many friends in uo.
    i roll with the stupid sh%t ...or i wouldnt be here still.
    its the only way to look at it i think, at least its the only way I can look at it, and still find enjoyment in this game.
    ea does something ******** and i just laugh at it.
    then i change my play-style to compensate for the 'stupid'.
    its really all the survivors of 'uo past' can do to remain in 'uo present'.
    ya gotta take some of it witha grain of salt.
    keep on and keep up ...as they say.
    its really all about having fun yes?
    gl to ya richard

    Thanks for the thoughts, as a matter of fact, I logged into Oceania where I have a few old chars, and just by hapenstance, hooked up with another player that was willing to do the cross shard thing. Here's the funny thing, he's in southern Cal anyway, but plays Austraila...we played for about 4 hours total, and were able to do all 6 chars per acct for both of us, netting a cool 300k points each. It does, however take a long time to do it, and preferably 2 computers working for res, and pickup/transfer. I am up for it again if anyone has a desire to work out an additional 300k points:).

    Don't know who that is by name, can you give me an idea who he/she is?
    Heck, I may be offended...hehe, but as of now, I could care less.

    - Do you know Ronaldhino? Nikola Tesla? Cervantes? Or even Pajitnov?
    Sometimes it really does not matter if we know some things; but it is always good to know some things.

    Lord Richard - just do what makes you happy. UO is a part of RL / RL is everything that you are. I wish you well, all the time (to clarify: I don't know Lord Richard, but I do wish all of mankind, & much more than man, well!)
