Re: House Decay Timers

From 'This building is like new' to collapsing is 14 days. As for anything in between, not worth bothering with really. Unless you find an IDOC, bit of a waste of time camping. And if you do find an IDOC you park a toon outside and watch like crazy. Naturally all the PK's should recall in in the dyi...

Re: Placing Houses

Try, try and try again. And if THAT doesn't work, try, try and try again. Seriously. Even in OSI the pro's often had trouble placing houses. For example. This one guy, Mondain he was called, owned this whole Island. and right next to his main building, a Large Tower I managed to place a small marble...

Re: A most vile act commited by Dongs and his henchmen

Great Stuff :)

Nice story and RP.

And to think on day 2 of my life in second age I found myself at roadkills rune library, in wonder at the magnificence at the building and its libraries locations.

So is it an unspoken server sanctuary? Or do PK's hang out there and prey on the unsuspecting?

Re: Drinking Potions

Ahh righty, many thanks. I think its probably worth adding every type of armor and weapon as you never know what elementals might drop. Tedious to add them all I am guessing, but in the long run might be worth it hey? So there is no fast way to loot a corpse on the floor other than the good old fash...

Re: Patch 92 - March 23, 2009 - NPC Merchants, spells & weapons.

Great changes! I always wondered how to interupt a spell. I kept looking in the options thinking 'Where is the Cancel spell keY?' Now I know there isn't actually one lol. So now I can set up a macro to interupt my blade spirits - I have had my fingers burnt before, not being able to cancel while I c...

Re: fishing....

Someone said that you only get the Mibs and Tmaps from serpents when you are GM.

I take it this is the case? My fisherman has been pulling up serpents galore with no sign of the good loot.

Re: any hybrids out there?

Probably not that great.

The best tournament pvper on the server is a tank mage, with 100 int 100 str and 25 dex, so I would guess that a hybrid isnt such a great option, after all if the best isn't one, it stands to reason there is a reason for that.

Re: Drinking Potions

Hmm scavenger.... I have seen the option in Razor, have even managed to set up my hot bag for selling stuff. But have no idea how scavenger works or what it does. I gather it picks up stuff lying around. Does it pick up stuff off bodies and out of bags or boxes on the floor automatically? Is it easy...

Re: Recall as criminal

Aye I agree there are times when you shouldnt be allowed to recall when grey, but also when you should be allowed: If you steal something off a person and they catch you. If you loot a blue body that hasnt gone into a skeleton. If you loot mobs you didnt kill yourself If you attack someone blue, or ...

Re: Gaining stats...

Aye herding as well is great for raising all stats fast, as there is also no time delay. Just grab a shepherds crook, head to britain stables click the herding skill click the animal and where you want it to go. Fast raises. But int is always the slowest of stats to raise.

Re: Gaining stats...

Xan your best bet would be to use the See saw method: Get your real skills to the 700 cap. Make sure spirit speak is at zero and eval int is at 10 (or vice versa) Ensure your int is set to raise and dex set to lower. Set Eval int down, set Spirit speak up. Ensure every other skill is locked. Spam sp...

Re: Items in houses

So do you no longer use 100's of Backpacks of different colors not locked down? It sounds like a great way to organise your items. However I would always be worried a patch would come out that would make the items decay, or a big in a patch, which would make you lose the lot. Of course I suppose one...

Re: Nightmare spawn question (era accuracy)

Aye I remember it spawning in the terra swamp, and after carefully maneauvreing it to the north end of the swamp near the wall, where there was a little window, if you quickly recalled to a pre marked rune on the other side of the wall/window you could finish taming it without it kicking your ass.

Re: Era Accurate Rares

interesting, didnt know that. Server birth rares - I guess when the server was made and the first bunch of people 'in the know' were invited to play for the first time, they were grabbed pretty quick. Does this mean that those first lucky few are now the richest in the game? Or does the love now get...
