    "When using a bow with a damage type, like Silvani's Feywood Bow which has 100% energy damage, and a quiver that has other damage modifiers, like the Quiver of Fire which has 50% physical and 50% fire damage, which set of modifiers are used to determine damage?"

    Leurocian checked this one out, and it turns out that the quiver damage type overrides the bow damage type (it only affects bows - it won't affect a melee weapon at all.)

    So in this case, with the Quiver of Fire equipped, the bow will do 50% physical and 50% fire damage, and no energy damage at all.


    "What are the properties for the special wood types?"

    Another one of those "it's about time!" updates - <a target="_blank" href=http://guide.uo.com/itemproperties_2.html>Here you go!</A>

    Also, just to clarify last weeks' update - the wood-based runic kits CAN stack properties - so if you're using a Runic Ash Saw, for example, it is possible to roll Luck twice at 50% intensity, bringing the total intensity for that property to 100% - well above the theoretical intensity maximum of 75% for an Ash Runic, and it will look like only one property was added, when an Ash should generate a minimum of two. If you're seeing fewer properties on your wooden items than you think you should have, this may well be what's happening.

    (Also, the <a target="_blank" href=http://guide.uo.com/itemproperties_3.html>Runic Properties</A> page now has the charges for all the runics, by request)


    Playguide Update Roundup:

    Quite a few Playguide pages have been updated in the last week - here's a selection of new facts, formulae, and pages of interest:

    <a target="_blank" href=http://guide.uo.com/skill_16.html>Evaluating Intelligence</A>: Page now has the correct relationship between Eval Int and Magery damage (for you math fans, the actual formula used to generate those results is adjusted damage = (base damage * ( 30 + (9 * Eval Int/10) ) ) / 100.)

    <a target="_blank" href=http://guide.uo.com/skill_26.html>Resisting Spells</A>: Lists the Spellweaving spells affected by Resisting Spells (Bushido, Ninjitsu, and Chivalry have no skills that are affected by Resist Spells.)

    <a target="_blank" href=http://guide.uo.com/combat_8.html>Special Moves</A>: The Samurai Empire and Mondain's Legacy special moves have been added, and all moves have been updated with the weapons that use them.

    <a target="_blank" href=http://guide.uo.com/atlas_16.html>Bonus! ML Dungeon Overview</A>: I can't actually take credit for this one - I just found it, lost and lonely, on the internal web server

    Crafting skills: Now list all the non-Heartwood-recipe craftable items with ingredients and skill needed, including the SE and ML ones.

    All skills now have their primary and secondary stats listed. (Those are the stats that will be raised by using that skill.)


    "What, if any, is the effect of Spirit Speak on the amount of mana leeched when in wraith form?"

    First, mana leeched in Wraith form will be between 5%-23% of the damage done to the target - with a minimum of 1 mana leeched and a maximum of the target's total mana.

    With no Spirit Speak, the mana leeched will be 5% of the damage done (after resists) - so if you do 50 damage to your target while in Wraith form with no Spirit Speak, you'll leech 2.5 mana. At GM spirit speak, you will leech 20% of the damage done - in the above case, you'd leech 10 mana. Legendary gets you to 23%, which gives you a total of 11.5 mana leeched in the above case.

    For the math fans, the formula is percent leeched = ((15 * Spirit Speak)/100) + 5


    "Do the damage modifiers on quivers come from the quiver you have equipped or the quiver the arrow or bolt came from? I equip the quiver of lightning but I have several other quivers for the weight reduction in my pack with bolts and arrows."

    Leurocian banged on this one:

    "The answer appears to be that the damage type and bonus comes from the quiver you have equipped, even if it has 0 arrows or bolts.

    Example: Let’s say a Quiver of Fire is in a character’s backpack. It delivers 50% physical / 50% fire damage. The archer has 100 arrows in this quiver. She also has a Quiver of Ice equipped with no arrows in it. It delivers 50% physical / 50% cold damage. The archer shoots arrows at a creature with 100% physical and 100% fire resist. The result: the creature takes 50% of the delivered damage as cold damage from the Quiver of Ice. The Quiver of Fire is ignored, even though the arrows are coming from it."
