    Repeated patch errors here. Three times in a row now. Plus the client then refuses to close, either by the cancel button or the close button. Have to use Task Manager to close it.

    I see they stole the shrine battle idea from a free server, I believe at some point I mentioned it as an idea for this game. LOL

    Shrine Battles are essentially Blackthorn Captains, but at the Shrines instead.

    They can drop items "Bearing The Fellowship Insignia":

    Pretty sure this is what the mysterious frags are for too, sink them in to start the battle when it goes live. Test has a thing to click for testing purposes.

    Silently wonders if the shrine battles are just testing for the 8 levels of Blackthorn's dungeon encounter.... 8 coins. 8 levels. 8 mysterious gems. I wonder.....

    Awesome those complaining about no armor drops are silenced.

    Mannequins have a new Gump:

    The stat sheets are:
    upload_2019-10-30_15-52-58.png upload_2019-10-30_15-53-45.png

    More things than I expected.

    But we need to be able to put our Str, Dex,Intel and skills on the mannequin to see real damage range ,SSI, DCI etc and how see much HP, Stamina and Mana we would have when worn by a toon with those base stats.

    It’s a color currently available with a metallic dye tub, so not that amazing, least in our opinion.

    Mannequin's gump is buggy as heck. Sometimes it comes up sometimes it's just "Open Paperdoll & Customize Body" Nothing else.

    I miss The " sale this equipment for xx" on the mannequin. That would be awful.

    ummm....wot? shrine battles were in official UO at least once, back in 2007. Astaroth, Shadowlord of Hate, attacking shrines of the principle of love. maybe u didn't play then?

    & that's just the time i remember. i'd be shocked if it didn't go on even arlier than that for some other reason.

    i don't mind it happening again. totally appropriate for story.

    In CC the pumpkin hat appears under my hair (elf, dyed hair). Just a heads up.

    Grabbed the mace & shield cowl recipe and a couple of Captain titles. The pumpkin helm (non-exceptional) and the rowboat would have been nice if released in October, but gearing up for Yuletide season now so I passed on them.

    Or cornucopeia?

    The Pumpkin rowboat is wicked cute and wicked slow. I still like it very much, so thank you artists. :)

    FYI, The Jack O'Lantern Helm will be Exceptional when purchased, even though it doesn't show it as such on the vendor:

    Nothing new added to the Black Market dude, disappointing. I actually expected the Jack O'Lantern Helms to be non imbueable, but the devs surprised me.
