Returning from 1999. WTH? Help?

Discussion in 'UO Atlantic' started by stumpyTHEdrunk, Mar 25, 2011.

  1. Hey, coming back from 10+years away from the game. What the hell is Haven, and why the hell have they destroyed Ocllo? Good lord, loved Ocllo it was my first house.

    Got into quite a generation gap conversation with someone talking about 70 resist and me wondering why the hell anyonne would only have 70 resist. There was definitely a wall until someone came up and explained we were talking about two different things.

    Armor and weapons hurt my head. Literally.

    Quite colorful, though I miss seeing gold, val, rose armor.

    Can anybody help me out with some arrows or bolts? They are really expensive.

    Thanks, I'll be around Haven. Stumpy The Drunk is the name.

    Welcome back!

    Send me a message or hit me up on ICQ 98110980--I'll help you out the best I can. I have a 120 imbuer, so I can hook you up with some armor if you need. And arrows or bolts. I also know a few spots you can place a small house if needed.

    I can help you out with some runebooks you'll need.
    Trammel cities, felucca cities, tram and fel dungeon entrances etc.
    Might have some arrows around you can have (ratmen archers drop a pretty good amount so if I don't already have some I'll go get some)

    PM me on here or icq me 107296451

    Honestly, weapons and armor STILL hurt my head both in brightness and figuring out wth is needed. Since the changes I mainly play mages, mage/necros, and mage/tamers besides some crafting. Weapons are a nightmare to figure out to me.
  5. Thanks Kero, I will get ICQ(dont remember my old number) and get in touch wiith you. thanks very much.

    Someone took me to Ilshenaar Compassion, and killed some ratmen with me. That was definitely the spot. I need to get my healing up before I can do it myself. But i have around 500 arrows right now.

    If you have AIM you can message ICQ from that as well.

    There's a ratman spawn that isn't champion related by the sacrifice gate.
    *Correcting myself.. It's west out of the sacrifice moongate

    Toss me a message whenever and I'll get you those books.
    I'll get you some more arrows later as well.

    Thats off the top of my head, i probably forgot some but those are the basics. There are new ones too, none craftable ones ( blood drinker battle lust ect ) But when u get all the basics you will figure out the other ones.

    I miss my fortified , supremely accurate silver ( enter wep name here ) of vanquising.

  8. Just wanted to thank everyone who has helped me out in returning. My mind is mush on information overload but i'll come along. Just need more rum.

    Thanks Lady Kero for the runebooks, arrows, and recalls, and the rune to my house! MUCHO APPRECIADO! (thats my spanish)

    Thanks to Caldwen of DDP, for finding me in Ocllo/Haven and letting me join your guild and helping me out with a new set of armor, runebook, and money for insurance.

    Thanks to Fable, who saw my post and doesnt play Atlantic but came and gave me a crapton of gold and explained that there arent house deeds anymore :(. But I got a house so woohoo!

    Thanks Ironworks for doing that property run down. I've bookmarked it and im sure I'll wear it out over the next few weeks.

    Thanks alot everybody.

    Also the Compassion (Ilshenear) has a ratman spawn area, which is a good training ground as well. The rat archers have 50+ arrows each. There are also brigands neaby which are good for training parry and other skills.
