I have returned to UO after a long absence. I began playing when the game released and quit about 3 years ago. With my new account, I was able to work all my combat skills up to max levels fairly quickly but I just get owned in any dungeon.

I just can’t seem to comprehend how they want us to fight in them. I hack and slash my way in only to be over whelmed by masses of baddies when they respawn 1 minute after I kill them. Does anyone know of any guides covering strategies for hunting? I did read the PvM post on these forums and it helped, but I am just trying to absorb everything I can.

I don’t remember having this problem before but it could be on my server (Chesapeake) when I hit any old world dungeon now, I never see another soul. Where in the old days you would have to fight off 20 other people for one kill.

I want to get back into the game, but the me versus 1000 angry insta-respawning mobs doesn’t seem so fun. Also, I hear some talk about Doom Gauntlet and other new dungeons, if there is any posts or guides anyone knows about them I would greatly appreciate it.

This is UO in a nutshell for the past 5 years or so....

Newb... im too weak... gimme something so i can kill things better
Vet.... ok i have this thing that lets me kill things better now so make the Mobs harder...
rinse repeat...

I bet EAMythic is looking at most of the UO players as spoiled children that are never happy...

Just my 2 cents
The squeaky wheel gets the grease... but if it still squeaks after greasing it then replace it.

wow krashnss nice warm welcome back :) But unfortunately you are pretty close to the mark :(

@RPG_buff unfortunately skills alone will no longer keep you alive. To compensate for the vet part of krashnss fair assesment some monsters are tougher than they used to be to compensate for the balance in item properties.

You will need to read more, and post your template (and suit) on the forum and let those tweakers give you some advice.

I may have mis-stated my question. What I was asking for was some direction to good posts and or guides related to dungeon crawling in todays UO. As you stated I need to read more, I am just trying to find out what to read.

Alot of the sites I used to frequent for info are gone or only talk about WoW now. I will post my current build and gear set up once I get home from work.

I am not sure if Krashnss is pissed at me, my question or the state of UO in gerneral but I am sorry for causing some upset.

The instant respawn is really annoying, as soon you kill any add while focusing on your main target (Shadow Wyrm in Destard lvl 2 for example) it just respawns 2 secs later 3 steps away :P

Stupid respawnsystem imo.
