    If we knew it wouldn't be a 'Mystery' would it?

    This was mentioned in t hunter thread. Something to do with virtues. Don't think we have the full story yet.

    i did a few maps today, and now have 7 different colours of mysterious fragment. So if its to do with virtues i guess i am missing one.

    I honestly think the soulstone idea has the most merit. Think about it all the colors of the soulstones are in there. I doubt we'd get full ones but maybe fragments.

    I have 7 colors so far - I don't have the blue, but I do have an orange one.

    So, they could correspond to Soulstone colors, or to the Virtue colors.

    I'm soloing everything but Trove maps with just a mystic casting an RC. I thought it was easier now but I hadn't dug any maps in years, so....

    To me, they're easier. Doing stash and supply chests with a tamer/TH. The cart changes mean I can dig from a greater distance, and the mix of the old level 2 & 3 spawn means that Ogre lords are less common than on the old level 3. The only challenge is if I get revealed when trying to invis, and all the spawn are casters.

    So is everyone keeping every fragment you find? I have well over a hundred on the chance that we might be able to make more than one of whatever they are going to form.

    I'll probably start giving some away to friends when my bank hits 150+ out of 175 items. Currently only at around 100/175, with a bag of almost 50 fragments in it.

    I went to all of the shrines today and placed the matching color mysterious fragment at the base of each shrine. There was first a fizzled spell sound, then the message "The fragment settles into the ground surges with power as it begins to sink!" (as it sank into the floor and forever disappeared). I then heard the sound that a successful healing spell makes and received the message "You feel a slight energy pulse through you..." I tried saying the mantra word and the shrine's specific Word of Power, but it did nothing. I saw no movement in my stats or my virtues. Whatever it is supposed to do is probably not fully turned on yet. But that appears to be our next step.

    Check your virtues and see if it gave you some points in it!

    I dumped 15 frags at the Sacrifice altar thinking that maybe you need to offer a specific amount, and I noticed no change in any of the aforementioned stats. Just thought I would share to save anyone their fragments.

    Was your virtue full when planted the stone? Doesn't it say you must know something of this to reap the benefits?

    All of my virtues were not full and I saw no movement in any of them. I received no such message about having to know something to reap the benefits.

    I have a feeling Publish 107 will be using these frags for the 'shrine battles'. Right now on TC1 they using 'orbs' to click which the pub notes say are only for testing. I think probably use these mysterious frags to summon up the monsters...

    well I'm still thinking they will be used for the fellowship staff.
    remember how the pirate at bucs mint held the whip?
    I am thinking its been an "easter egg" this whole time, like the whip was in the beginning.
    why else would it be on display all this time?
    And the people who didn't get more than 8 will be wishing they had gotten more.

    I went to the Compassion Shrine and dropped one of the gold mysterious fragments on the ground today. Got the 'energy absorbed' message but had never noticed this when I targeted myself ..maybe it's nothing new, but I had never noticed it before ....

    We haven't been active in UO since January, let alone done any TMaps, so we have a lot of catching up to do! (Not because of boredom btw, NEVER because of boredom heh.) Now we wonder: Can these Mysterious Fragments be found in any level treasure chest or only the higher ones? With some posters having stacked hundreds, we are hopeful the knowledge and answer is in this thread hehe. :wink::wink: (Time seems very short to prepare so it wouldn't be nice to waste it on wrong levels.)

    I think they can be found in any level map. I have the suspicion that they are of a high frequency in higher level maps, but I haven't made any real effort to test that. I've now been doing Supply Maps and higher searching for frags. The Stash maps seem to be too low of a drop rate.
