    I played the first 13 years of this game and left for 4 because life happened.. So I take advantage of the RTB and I hop on my Elder Mage... head to wrong, throw an EV to take care of the Lizards and they barely touch them. So I throw a few flame strikes and again they barely touch them.. I mean.. they are simple lizards when I left I could clear out a whole room of Lizard men in seconds with an EV. What happened???

    Some dungeons were revamped. For example, Shame and Covetus. So monsters in this dungeons more powerful than normal monsters of the same type.

    Wrong was revamped. Those are not the lizardmen of old. But two EV will still do the trick, but it is slower.

    For the best success as a returning mage I highly suggest trying out Mysticism. The new stuff always works the best in UO and it's a pretty powerful set of 16 spells that mixes with magery very well, similar to necro. The Rising Colossus summon is very strong but requires us humans to be on foot. +1 for the garg.. they had to give us some reason to play them tho..
