I still loot gold and pick up everything in sight to sell. It was the way I built my nest egg when UO first came out so I guess it is hardwired in me now.

When I go hunting with my Group we designate a looter and Banker.. Someone who only loots the bodies and takes it to the bank.

Our Best take for the evening (As far as I know) 700K

Then the banker splits up between everyone (Which usually ends up to be between 15-40k per person

Our hunts have slacked a little due to asking them to help me farm some points in Exodous.

Yup, definitely still loot gold but not all of it. Say, I may skip the imp corpse but I'll yoink the gold off the daemon for sure (as many have said before, exceptions being if there's no time in some high spawn area).

I rarely loot items though. I always sift through the loot on the corpse if at all possible, but I rarely find anything better than I already have or otherwise something I feel is worthwile. I don't sell much stuff, don't run any vendors, so if I can't use it, it's pretty much garbage to me (minor arties, arties, other special junk excluded - which turned in handy with spring cleaning...).

No I stopped looting gold years ago. Once I had a decent amount of gold I started running luna vendors and looting items instead of gold. Anything i can buy cheap and resell or loot and make a decent amount on I put on my vendors.

Hey! Someone left 26 gold in that mongbat corpse!

w00t, It's a good day to be me !


I always think of finding a dead critter with gold on it is like finding a penny on the sidewalk. I always grab gold when I find it!

I made my first million in despise at teh earth ellys and ettins while training my characters there. LOL
I may not get the gold to the bank, but I always loot and drop the gold on the ground in a pile. I would rather see someone get the gold than just to let it decay on the corpse. I even skin the Imps and greater mongbats.
At Doom I pick a corner close to Nix for anyone who needs supplies there. With healing pets and X-Healing with other players I go through at least 200-500 bandages per round, so I visit Nix a lot! LOL.
Also, the Doom Gauntlet boss monsters (all of them) now have a chance of dropping a set item piece in their corpse. I have got the grizzle gauntlets from the DF and the set piece sword (can't remember their names) from an impaler. They also have nice items worth looking thru for.
Champ spawns there is not enough time and the corpses decay too quickly.

Man, I used to make all my money killing Lich Lords, and Elder Gazers, before the necro changes. After Melissa stopped spawning, I pretty much stopped PvMing, because I had learned the odds of finding useful items to enhance are just not practical on anything other than Dark Fathers, Peerless, or Champions. The only way to move on up in this game is to acquire Valorite Hammers and Barbed Kits; the time it takes to get gold is less valuable perhaps than the time it takes to run BODs, although both are tedious, and undesirable for my interests, lol.

I still loot the gold but i only fight monsters when gathering leather and it seems silly to leave the gold. I even take the Dragon Scales and sometimes the raw meat.

I do check items for enhancement as well.
