    Why are there critters that attack you, and you lose karma for self defense? Why? Today's example: lion

    Please fix.

    Let us recall out of Shadowguard instead of having to walk down to the air elemental stairs

    Remove gears from Dawn's Music Box, and be able to re-order the gears in a music box, or something something Dawn's Music Box.

    Fix all the bugs involving recipes that have the same recipe ID (how did you make that bug in the first place!??).
    Really, fix the bugs, don't just hide them, because you missed a spot.

    Fix the exorcism spell so that it works. (Suggested by others.) If the body has already decayed, send the spook to a shrine, which then resurrects him or her.

    Please add wooden bowls as something tinkers can craft. A wooden bowl is necessary for a cook to make a fruit bowl, but we can only get it by buying cooked vegetables from an NPC, eating the veggies, and then using that bowl.

    Not to mess you up but I would think wooden bowls would fall under carpentry not tinkering... but that's me but Yes they ought to be craftable that I agree...

    Ungrindify skill gain.
    e.g. Without resorting to unattended macroing, how many hours do I have to be casting Noble Sacrifice repeatedly to go from grandmaster to legendary chivalry? Isn't that a bit much? Ditto healing.

    What would be wrong with it in both? (*) While I agree carpentry seems most suited, looking at tinker stuff, there are lots of parts and things that are needed by other crafts.

    Sort of a tossup I think.

    (*) belated thought ... wrong because it breaks the skill mold of something in more than 1 skill. might trip up the devs when it comes to coding or something. <thinks track record>

    Fix ALL situations where a pet would go feral EXCEPT petname release.


    Fix ALL things that might cause a pet to go poof, and I do mean ALL.
    From a statue? petname release should make it be feral, not magically disappear it.
    Pet's aboard a pirate or merchant ship? Don't make the pet get deleted if the ship gets deleted! What the pancake!

    Fix the bug where a pet gets cloned by Navrey. Did I already wish for that? Does it still happen?

    Reasoning:
    A trained pet represents an enormous expenditure of effort now (you know, because we don't have pet-specific +skill scrolls). We don't want to lose our valuable pets.
    Some of these pets have been with us for YEARS. We don't want to lose our pets!

    Absolutely : Why they allow pets to go wild? Ok..I can see line of sight and unattended farming with pet etc. BUT : Make the pet inattentive, just stand there and not fight, or automatically auto-stable it. NOT GO WILD and DIE, loaded with 200M+ scrolls, and 200+ hours of leveling the pet! OR POOF in case of statuette pets like : Paroxy dragons that are so hard to get to begin with, and Tritons and other statuette pets!
    They should have fixed this when they decided to have pets eat white PS player scrolls!

    Have faster-swinging whip weapons.
    The one currently available is so slow-swinging that I suspect no one will use it in actual melee combat.

    I wish you would make a faster-swinging whip weapon, and then give out recipes for it, so we can craft it, and imbue it to be competitive with the ubiquitous double axe. Just saying.

    Edit:
    Sprinkle this post with a few facepalms and at least one "what the pancake"

    Faster weapons reach the speed cap too easily. The whip is the perfect speed for my Macer. 211 stamina 10SSI and it is at fastest speed with more damage and leech than a faster start weapon.

    BTW it is the same speed as a double axe. *facepalm* why do you think they like the double axe.

    @Pawain you can read about the objections to the whip here:
    Barbed Whip of Plundering...

    ...and they like the double axe because of whirlwind. It would be nice if that were faster too, hey.

    I cant help it if they do not know how to build a suit to use the best weapons. The WW fencing weapon is very fast. Tell them to go give that a whirl. Your They is Popps....

    Is it still possible to build that suit with contemporary loot? You know you can't get legendaries very often by bashing wind elementals now.
    So, since this is the wish list...

    I wish for: Make it so that a typical player can get an uber suit like Pawain's with contemporary loot that a typical player could get now by bashing monsters that he/she/it can bash.

    Use natural dyes, Tokuno dyes, metallic dye tub, etc., for hair and horn dye.

    For roleplaying purposes, anyone should be able to pour a bottle over his head or soak his head in a tub.

    too late to get in on this? a gold-bought token or NPC that can change a wearable item to a different wearable item for the same slot. I HATE the way robes, capes, many headwear pieces look. let me change them over to epaullettes, quivers, or a hat/helm that looks better to me. right now im using a CLOSED HELM mage armor piece and some stupid tiger pelt chest on my tamer. it looks ridiculous. so much so that i've given up and thrown a shroud over it.

    if that isnt feasible, at least add more items to blackthorns turn in so i can get some of what i need that way.

    Fix this bug:
    It's impossible to do / finish a dread pirate capture quest; bug came in with Publish 105. The dread pirate simply vanishes right off the pirate ship. Related problem, I'm seeing uncrewed pirate and merchant ships, presumably where the crews have vanished.
    I'm on Baja, near Zento and south of Zento, and using a Magery Mastery pet.


    ...I wish you would stop introducing bugs like this one, and when you do, I wish that you would not let them go live. It doesn't do any good to have Baja be a final test shard if you're not going to delay a pub for a showstopper like this one.

    Can I wish for the next expansion? Did I already?

    Is it Mars, the land of nude ginger robots?

    Is it The Serpent Isle, and can you get a date with Frigidazzi?

    Is it Pagan, where there are way more skeletons in the catacombs than there are live people above ground, and you become Super Avatar Brother jumping on moving rocks?

    For melee combat, start the "hit" sound effect on the correct animation frame.

    along those lines, have the mounted attack animation actually use the weapon instead of the empty off-hand.

    Make it easier to update credit card information.
    Why is it easier for me to cancel my subscription than to give you my money?
    You really, sincerely, seriously suck, and this suckitude has been going on for freaking years.
    FIX THIS AND SUCK LESS.

    Well seeing as how you haven't been offered a job from BS/EA yet based on your mountains of "feedback" I think they are actually hoping you do cancel :) .

    Your posts have gone from general things that could/should be fixed to just straight up complaining & whining. You have also posted the last 7 of 9 things here getting gradually more grouchy. I was ignoring the obnoxious posts until the last one and now I'm finally giving you the attention you were looking for. So now that you got it; PLEASE stop complaining. If you really think the game sucks that bad just cancel your subscription (since it's so easy) and go do something else.

    Thanks!

    If every one of us who is as irritated and disgusted with the way things are going in UO suddenly all quit like you think we should... the game would close. There are a lot of us who feel the same way as she does... frustrated and fed up with the DEVs for ignoring the big issues and fixing stupid stuff no one cares about meanwhile the game is getting harder and harder to enjoy and play because it's such a boring grind... and for no or little reward. Meanwhile things that are irritating and getting old as far as bugs go tend to get ignored...

    I've complained for years about the state of the EC and nothing ever gets done and their excuse is always "its' Pinco's"... stop using Pincos UI and it'll all be fine... but it's not... most of the problems with the EC are there whether you are using Pinco's or not. After awhile of watching these bugs go on and on and nothing ever getting fixed one tends to start getting irritable and whiny on the forums... since we know it's going to be ignored anyway we think why bother or SHAME the DEVs into doing something about it by posting a video of how terrible it really is... but then it only gets fixed if you are one of their "pets"...

    Once again you confused what I said. I didn't say if you are "irritated and disgusted" quit the game; I said if you think it sucks so bad then you shouldn't play. Everyone gets irritated or annoyed but I don't see nearly the amount of whining and crying from anyone as I do with a select few. I get it that some things are changed in the game and that aggravates people and sometimes they will post about how it sucks. The people I'm talking about are the ones like Laura who literally gripe about every single thing in the game; like UO cannot do anything right. It's toxic and rather than post helpful meaningful suggestions it's become nit picky things that have a very small impact to 99% of the population. People like this can quit the game and the game will run just fine.

    You both kind of strike me as the type of people who go to a restaurant, complain about the food, the staff, the service, the prices, the wait times, the lighting, the bus boy, the seating, and your coffee being too hot...every single time you go to the SAME restaurant every week for the past 20 years lol. Just give it a break!

    Probably because I remember when the food was awesome, the staff gave a crap about it and the wait time, the lighting was better, the bus boy wasn't a pig, the seating had more room and more people were in there, and my coffee was perfect every time, ..... but I still go there because my friends do and won't quit going there for some loyalty reasons or something so I follow them grudgingly.

    But unlike them, I've found a bright shiny new restaurant to go to where the food is new and more colorful and tasty and I enjoy exploring the menu again. The lighting is nicer and the bus boy and waitress are very attentive...

    I wish that we could buy, sell, trade "Shadowguard room completion certificates" which would help on shards that aren't as heavily active as Atlantic.

    I wish that the moderators here would clean up this thread by moving posts that are not wishes aimed at Kyronix, Mesanna, Bleak, Misk to another thread created for commentary on wishes / wishers.

    (Wow, did I get through a whole post without once saying "pancake that omelet"? Oops, there I go.)

    @Bleak please fix:
    Shard: Baja, town Vesper. Mouseover of the town stone says the governor is Xelious Norwood, but double clicking says the governor is Vacant.
    More information: Xelious Norwood was not elected. I think he may have been appointed by EM Obsidian (as King Blackthorn)
