Original Gargoyle Artifacts Questions

Discussion in 'UO Stygian Abyss' started by PokeyTheKnight, Feb 17, 2010.

  1. I am looking for some artifacts and am a little lost at how they drop.

    What monster(s) have the best chance to drop SA artifacts?

    Do certain artifacts only drop off of certain monsters?

    Are there varying rarities of artifacts?

    I am looking for some in particular and it seems like all I ever get are the Petrified snake and the dagger :(

    There also some artifacts that you can steal in Underwold and the Abyss.
  3. I am talking about the actual equipment. I'm looking primarily for:

    Sword of Shattered hopes
    Beserker's Breastplate
    Giant Steps
    Death's Hand

    Any advice on what to kill?

    I got the Berserker's Breastplate from a [renowned].
  6. Do all Renowns have the same chance at dropping an artifact or do certain ones have an increased chance?

    Got mine from Navrey (prior to her buff)
  8. How about Sword of Shattered Hopes?

    I have heard of it dropping off of Renowns. But can anyone confirm if it drops from Medusa, Navrey or the Slasher of Veils?

    I got the sword of shattered hopes, off Navery a long time ago, back when you had to search the corpse, instead of it dropping into your backpack.

    Got a bunch of Petrified Snakes from Medusa.
