    Just curious. How did a castle win a dev pick that is not in the top 20 at all? Is this a new way to pick? Pick out of all 150 entrys? I have to admit I am deeply saddened that mine, number 5, The Sandalwood Castle was not chosen. It was my best work, darn it :).

    Pets... join the crew of the disappointed... but I wasn't expecting much. I expect only more disappointment from this and disgust from all the bugs.

    I'm underwhelmed this year. Nothing there really interests me at all. No good rings, nor jawbones, nor dex boots, nada

    You will get a token in your backpack when server is up. Each toon gets 1 token that gives 1 of the items.

    Because they are better friends with the Devs than you? ;) It's no secret after all that they do favors to "friends".

    Guess I should have never made fun of the fish coffins. NOT the actual coffin, those are so pretty. The dying fish aspect. Oh no I put llama on the house sign! Ok idk about any of her friends, his friends, their friends. What she did was messed up. I only support messed up leaders with a small amount of money. So 10 went to 3 soon to 2. I think Atlantic is my spot. Flexible rules there.

    New belt takes the color of the cloth you make it from.

    Sadly they didn't listen to the complaints about the belts being dipped in paint basically and all of the belt metal and all taking the color... which IMO looks ridiculous.

    Is there any point to logging in at this time other than to collect anniversary tokens if you didn't spend the entire summer hunting plunder beacons ir digging up treasure chests; you don't own any artifacts; you've never hunted Charybdis, Corgul or Scalis and don't think you will be hunting them anytime soon because you play solo at weird times; you have zero enthusiasm for pumpkin-related items; your last couple of aquarium attempts ended in nothing more than stinky fish skeletons tossed in the trash; you have very few mysterious fragments because treasure hunting is still boring and you're afraid that the fragments won't be of any more use than last year's obsidian; and you still haven't GMd begging because it's so utterly boring and you're afraid to risk your account doing unattended macroing to train it?

    I'm on the verge of turning my accounts off for a few months because I just don't see anything in the publish notes that interests me in the slightest. I don't even want to pick up more anniversary tokens because those gifts don't even do much for me either because I just don't have tons of wall space for putting that stuff up. It's just more clutter that's going to go in bankboxes or chests.

    I honestly can't find anything in this publish that looks like something I want or "need." I feel like I must somehow be missing something in the publish notes because all it looks like to me is that there's going to be a bunch of new recipes that don't really do anything useful and some new pumpkin stuff. Hurray??? I can't even get excited about new castle designs because I'll never the gold to sink into one of those plus where the heck would I put stuff while converting to one.

    Sorry to be so negative. I'm just really bummed out about UO at this point. I want to be interested in it again. But anymore even when I have time to play, I find myself starting it up and then closing it down at the login screen because I can't think of anything to do in UO. And I used to spend so much time on it in the past. I'm within months of finally qualifying for shard shields on two accounts and yet I'm asking myself why even bother to keep the accounts on to make sure that happens. I just feel like I don't even belong in the game anymore, I'm so out of date on everything. And if you don't play at a regular time with a regular group of people, it just all seems so pointless.

    Oh I agree but people will give you hell for saying so... And top that off with they added 2 new items to the Trick or Treating whoopdee doo da... this just means you will have 900 more of the crap from the last 8 years along with a .0005 chance of getting one of the two new items unless you spend all day every day for the entire month of October doing nothing but Trick or Treating... because the list of possible drops is SO big that getting the 2 new things will be damn near impossible and at GM Begging you have just as much chance in hades of gettnig them as someone with NO begging really because the RNG is broken as all get out.

    Oh and lets then try to get the new pumpkins out of the bunch that has been around forever you'll need to gather 100's of pumpkins and kits not like you can just carve the new ones no you'll be the victim of the RNG for that too and chances of you getting one of the new designs will be about 0.00005% on a Wed during a full moon... unless you are one of the "lucky" ones.

    I remember getting soul stone fragments for gifts.
    And a transfer token...
    Useful stuff...ya know

    Deco is fine and all, but really, once in while something real would be nice, something we can use

    If you play between 6pm and midnight Central come to LS and I will give anyone Soulbinders for 60 sand and 8 coins for any 8 Cargo. We did 3 Scalis last night and I had others on my ship filling them. Future community hunts involve the other 2 Bosses. All ability levels are welcome at our Community Hunts.

    I'm excited to see all of the trick or treat scripters running around non stop.....said no one ever. Yeah yeah I know, you do it all by hand and yet you'll still have a full set of this and that for sale by the following day.

    I think it's quite nice undyed:

    Screenshot (301).png

    Here is the mace belt dyed--I'd call the dyed versions of the sword and mace belts unusable personally:

    Screenshot (306).png

    I think the dagger belt can get away with it because the dagger is pretty subtle on it:

    Screenshot (292).png

    But yeah... I really wish they'd made it so the weapon and scabbard parts didn't dye with the rest of the belt. I'll only be using plain for most purposes, with the possible exception of the dagger belt. The sword belt MIGHT be okay in a dull/neutral color, but I'd have to experiment with it.

    I hate the dipped in paint look that's just lazy designing... and whoever signed off on that should be whacked upside the head. They should know better.

    I am one of the many that had to force myself to log in for awhile.
    We've been doing beacons for most of this year. They become a soul sucking grind after a few weeks, and yet here we are. For this publish we need to do more of them. A lot more. And for what? More deco? I really can't justify spending 40 hours doing something very boring to get a recipe that would change my apron into a belt. I know they don't want to have a power creep, but give us something useful, a QOL item, something!

    The blackthorn dungeon NPC is asking for 45 Mythical cargo worth of points as entrance fee, or I need to spend multi millions of gold to buy the fellowship coins. If there is no other way to get, this will be a horrible idea.

    I thought it is 1 coin per visit. How about the toon recalled out ? Does it need to pay another coin to to get in again ?

    Yeah I have one of the Wood Carvings with Jack's name on it, just wondered (or thought I read somewhere) that the Ship Reliefs could too. Guess I'll still open all my tokens with Jack just to be safe lol

    Yup you get to know what it looks like.
