Guess I will ask here too!

So is the timer 5 seconds or 10 seconds? Draconi stated just last night in the hoc that it would be 5 seconds. what's up with that? Please proof read your notes.

Also will there be a list of when the scavenger hunt will be started on each shard? Or does just origin get the scavenger hunt?

Haven't seen a confirmation of the 5/10 sec delay.

And no list yet of when the scavenger hunt start on all shards. Is the hunt just a 1-time thing? Anyone know how the system works? Is there an NPC for turn-ins? With my luck though, I'm sure I won't be on when they start it in Atlantic.. heheh.

Draconi confirmed that its 10 seconds for now then will be 5 seconds with the next publish.

But I did not get an answer about the scavenger hunt? So either origin is only shard to get one or EAMythic has no idea when they will run it, unless it starts at server up.

Adam reported it here yesterday :P

The only news of this having happened at present is here .

I can post the event over,but it will spoil it for those wanting to take part.I will put a seperate spoiler up though if any one wants it..

As for when it takes place on other shards,the general opinion is it will be advertised on UOHerald.

This was posted on Origin shard,during a mix up over dates/times.

Here is the correct time and day.

"The live event is actually going to be a Scavenger Hunt!!!

We will be doing the first one on Origin 02/12/2007 (tomorrow) at 6pm EST / 3pm PST.

The location will be at the new park next to the falls of Yew.

Once, I have the schedule for the other shards it will be posted.

Chrissay"


There was a lot of confusion to begin with,but it seems it will be repeated more than once,to give a fair chance to those logging at different times.
Scavenger Hunt

New Thunder


It went very fast, the list had five items. The announcement was made that the hunt would be run again on Origin, so perhaps it will be run on each shard a couple of times to allow for alot of folks to take part.

Voluptous

Hopefully at different times. The regular employed would love to do some stuff too.

Ill keep my eyes peeled during today for any updates,but as the USA sleeps, I doubt will see any times posted before 18.00 pm tonight [UK time]



Anyone know how the system works? Is there an NPC for turn-ins? With my luck though, I'm sure I won't be on when they start it in Atlantic.. heheh


A developer actually ran the event on Origin,but wether that will be the same for the other shards,we will have to wait and see.

Players collect a 'bag'that had been placed on the floor.
Bag contains a book, with listed items to find.
Player returns bag to Dev with items and the book signed by them.
