Cant run thru the quest dead anymore and still get your ticket. He says you are dead and cant help anyone. Glad I got most of my chars thru!

WOOHOO! Glad I did most of mine over the weekend. Too bad I didn't get to run through on other shards. Oh well there's always Melissa.

This should of never been a problem in the first place,after all it is a quest to help and you can't help anyone while dead.
The whole point of this event is to have playable content within the perameters of the roleplaying aspect of the game.
Instead like so many other events some people spend their time attempting to find a cheat around the way it was meant to be.
I'm sure glad none of these people are my auto mechanic or doctor.
IMO it was a mistake to put turn-in points as a reward,it defeats the whole purpose of the term "clean up".
This was an enjoyable quest if you do it from start to finish,it at least gets players out exploring parts of the realm they had no idea about.Boggles my mind how few players knew where to find speckled poison sac's or where the etheral fortress is,just goes to show you how item oriented many are and how lacking in knowledge about the game and the content that really makes UO a superior game to play,that is if your playing it and not exploiting it.

Not too tough to put an alternate character on a different account in there to rez you...
Or ask a friend...
Or one of the people hanging out there...
Or to use sacrifice...
Or to use honor in the first place...
Or Ethereal Voyage...

Heck, my mage made it through alive without any of those tricks.

LOL, couldn't agree more!

I disagree, you have to turn in dozens if not hundreds of items for points to get one reward item. Net result is less records(items) existing in the database, which is the goal.

I think Phase IV should let people drop near anything on a collector and have the item exchange for tickets as if it were gold from an NPC vendor in town. It would clear out a LOT of chests full of armor, weps and jewelry that will likely otherwise never see the light of day(i.e. - you drop a mid-40's resists leather tunic with 2 bonus properties and get 120 points).

Aye, I was in the middle of awaking cousins on other shards, when one was told she could not help while a ghost. I am able to embrace the Honor virtue and res people on Chesapeake, but my cousins have not followed the virtue as strictly as I have.

Uhmm...there's 3 cloaks and tickets there, if I remember correctly. I have my full set of scout's armour so even the tickets are a bonus now. Thanks for your honesty in remembering though...and yes, I was relieved that all worked so smoothly last evening and we were done....until the next goodies come to be traded. *grins*

Three cloaks? I guess I didn't look very closely, had to run off and assist with the putting-to-bed of my tiny baby squishy.

But yay! Three cloaks =D

it.



Too bad it only covers the 'good' roleplay aspects. What point, rp wise, is there to doing this with an evil aligned character?

By the way, I agree with you about the exploit factor.

Ok, they're not heartless though. With this fix they have also made the notes blessed. So those without charged runebooks, or have lost their regents, or whatever other reason may otherwise leave you stuck in that room, you can run back out and keep the note, even if you die.

Or Ethereal Voyage...


Just a note, Ethereal Voyage seems to be highly bugged at the moment. I tried using it through the demon room and looks like the paragons saw right through it and I was instantly killed. Seen other reports of people having the same issue as well.

Besides it is such a short duration with long cool down timer would take 15 minutes to do what can do in 1 minute using Honor or macros to precast invis, say word, target self. (really only need that for undead room rest just have word in a macro as the safe zone is on other side of the door.)

Anyone want to X-shard their points for me?

I will run through naked on another shard for you if you do it for me.

Also, I hope you are all keeping the corroded chests...those are pimp

If you're on Atlantic, I have at least 2 done and 2 more I can do, if someone is available to heal me at Casca. I'm on Chessie.

Limlight - depend on whether this event lasts through the weekend, I can do up to 14 chars on Atlantic for your Sonoma points (also provided you can rez me on Atlantic and have a runebook to 'port to Ulrich)
