Wasn't trying to pick on you solely LadyKolleen, using your personal stories to try and show how I see things in game.

and it is just that's how I see it from the "outside". Yes, you do enjoy it, bottom like, it's for items. I'm glad you're still enjoying it though.

So being able to be in an area with other spawn (that won't attack you) while the one enemy that can/will has locked horns with everyone else (who are being attacked by the other spawn) is ok with you? Is that ok with everyone else?


DID I SAY IT WAS OK! I simply stated that a "young" will be targeted if they do damage to any of the spawn. This has been the way "young" status has worked since it's inception, they adjusted the Tram and Fel dungeons and Doom, but still allowed it in Ilsh. At one point you could even take "youngs" to FEL, I used to love teking them to do the treasure puzzles when they were working.

ho well, the fact that "young" char can do the quest is totally
wrong and they'd not allow young player to do the quest....
anyway the damage is already done!

BUT

if i'm not wrong, you can create "Only 1" trial account for each credit card, or i'm wrong? i dont think there are other way to have
a trial account! at last is what i know

I ran my young people through. I pay for my account every month it's not a trial account so I didn't see anything wrong with it. I didn't create one just to do this event. It was an account I have had awhile.

I took one of them to fight melissa but I couldn't help out so I left. I don't like just standing there and not helping. So I don't use any of my young characters to fight her.

I went through the whole quest and enjoyed it very much. I think they did an awesome job on it.

i have a seven char single a/c. i ran all my chars thru both quests (even my crafter) and obtained 375k worth of tixs. i have been doing deceit spawn in fel for arties which are 10k a pop. point is i have gotten more than enough points to get basically any item i wanted.

the only reason i goto melissa now is to farm on my tamer with the hopes of getting a crimmy. i see nothing wrong with this. i haven't had a crimmy drop doing lady m's pretty regularly since last november. i figure mellisa spawns 6-7 times an hour, i like those odds, as well as getting peerless regs. farming for items? definately, in my mind. but everything i get is helping build my character as well as my pets abilities to better enjoy the game after this event ends. i don't see anything wrong with this. i also take my tamer down to the ww to farm b. leather and scales for the glasses. this game is what it is.

i have seen brokers characters down there and in the etheral fortress trying to get tickets. most times they are dead. guess what, i don't rez them.

For the record: Partying two characters and only doing damage with one of them DOES NOT get you two cloaks.

Yes, I tried. No, it didn't work. I agree in concept with DiP that this should have been one set of Melissa rewards per account, 30 day account age minimum.

I think a lot of us are 'keeping up with the Joneses:' I either get my 300K points using all characters at my disposal, or I take the high road and pay multi-millions of non-duped gold to people with less scruples. No one has been more of a bane to the Vanguard than I, but even killing every spawn, every day, every town didn't get me enough for a full set of one armor type.

Cross-sharding is a long tradition in UO, so I don't feel too bad. I also notice that my Melissa's cloak has been taking a beating and it's not repair-able, so I'm glad I'll have a few spares.

Interestingly, the cloaks are selling for as low as 75K on some shards - so obviously the draw is the points.

Also for the record: I just checked FindUO again and the cheapest cloak I can find is 200K. The 75K either was underpriced or a mis-type and was snapped up quickly.

Some profiteers out there are selling them for 9.9M a pop. I suggest you avoid those vendors. ;)

I agree it should have been one per char/account. If they did that though, the cloak should have been fortifiable. With that said, I don't wear them anyway...I generally try to build most armor sets to be corpse skin proof, and I'd rather have the 5 DCI from the quiver, so the point is mute to me. I'll hang onto them and see what happens.

I have multi chars all who are strong and powerful in their abilities. Some are not so strong, so they don't do the quest(s) but I do not like the 1 char/account rule. I feel characters capable of pulling their own weight with skills should never be restricted or limited because another character on the same account is also powerful. I have also shard traded and feel that because of the being alive part to get the note, it makes everyone cooperate. Without Honor or a res, 75% of the chars wouldn't make it through those rooms. Those res'ing I much appreciate their time and effort. It's boring in that room watching for ghosts.

I saw that last night. I have about 20 of these things banked or housed. Please. Opportunists.

I strongly disagree here. I ran 18 characters through on two shards. The ONLY characters to die were two mules, who have weak armor suits. Any player that has mastered movement, has solid armor sets on their characters and has the passwords on macro keys should not have a problem getting through there. JMO of course, but I stand by it.
