    Hi, been trying to inscribe a super slayer, 120 magery, 120, eval, 120, med, 100 inscribe, the "my book" tali and have churned out hundreds of books, none a super slayer. Is there something I am missing?

  2. Yes. RNG(random number generator). Each time you attempt to make a spell book,a "dice roll" happens,with minimum and maximum mod weight you can get. You just haven't hit "a natural 20" yet.

    I think I burned 20k scrolls before I got my first demon slayer book and it didnt have any additional mods... since then I have produced a few superslayers with extra mods... but I have burned 60k scrolls to get them :)

    Btw.. what is " the my book tali" ??

    The Tali is from Britain Library, Has high Inscription bonus on it, usually 20 something in bonus and exceptional, can be used to summon a spellbook I believe. You link it to a book like you do with a petball and a pet. Also has int. +5 and mana increase 2.

    Me and my buddy burned 100k scrolls and I think we got 5 or 6 superslayers.

    Why would you link a talisman to a spellbook instead of just carrying it with you in your bag? What am I missing here?

    Haven't done scribe real recently. But I burned about 200k worth of scrolls and averaged about 1 super slayer per 10k scrolls:mf_prop:

    It doesnt link to any books or summon. It just has 5 int and 2 mana with a random scribe/exceptional bonus above 20.

    Supposedly the My Book Talisman has a "hidden" mod that gives you an extra MOD roll when adding mods to the books your creating. Not only does this help in getting books with 2 mods but if your normal mod roll(s) fails there is that hidden mod roll from the Tali which would at least give you a better shot at a one MOD book. Weather or not it is "fact" i can't really say 100% just like many things in UO.

    I will say this though i've noticed when crafting Scrappers that i would get so many more double modded scrappers while using the My Book Tali compared to when i wasn't using it that now i ALWAYS wear the My Book Tali when i am crafting ANY spellbooks. Having a better chance at getting any MODS and a decent shot at a second MOD gives you a better chance at getting those Super Slayer books. So my suggestion would be to get yourself a My Book Tali equip it and try again and see what happens! IMO it's totally worth it.

    Just to clear things up you don't have to select a monster type or link the tali to anything. You just equip it and if your wearing it while crafting spellbooks your "suppose" to get that hidden extra MOD roll bonus!
