queries Airhaun in this thread

Healer
Type: spellbook

Recruit:

* 10 spells
* Mana Regen: 1


General:

* Full spellbook
* SDI: 20-25%
* LMC: 10
* Mana Regen: 3


General:

* Full spellbook
* SDI: 20-25%
* LMC: 10
* Mana Regen: 3


The above was found on UO's site relating to spellbooks with incredible mods that can be found on different spawn types (npc recruits, corporals, lieutenants, generals, etc.) which invade the towns just prior to the spawning of the Crimson Dragon.

My question for the UO community is:

Has anybody seen these "generals" and/or received a full spellbook with similar mods listed above?

The items these npcs give spawn directly in your pack. Guildmates and I have been searching for the general with no success. Was wondering of anybody has spotted this elusive individual. I'm assuming with the outstanding mods he/she spawns rarely.

Lets get some dialogue/feedback going...


and in a later post

Ok to clarify on the town invasions:

The NPCs of falsehood, hatred, etc. are not part of the invasion but part of a separate quest. I town is invaded if it is occupied by the following:


Quote:

* Britain: Dragons
* Skara Brae: Elementals
* Magincia: Undead
* Minoc: Plague
* Moonglow: Void
* Trinsic: Orcs
* Vesper: Rogue Ophidians
* Yew: Daemons

- taken from http://www.uoherald....php?newsid=446] UOHerald website: [/url]

The respective spawn type is also accompanied by the following:


# Army of Shadows (Humans and Elves)

- Ranking and promotion system similar to the Ophidian Invasion

* Four basic types

o Warrior
o Ranger
o Mage
o Healer

* Ranks

o Recruit
o Scout
o Corporal
o Lieutenant
o Captain
o General

I agree the special items received from most all ranks but the general or not worth the effort. However, that spellbook that the general gives (full spellbook, SDI 20-25%, LMC 10%, MR 3) definitely is worth my time and effort. It's to bad that only one person has reported seeing one in invaded towns.

Draconi had just one clarification

Ah, let me clarify this: the NPCs of Falsehood, Hatred, and Cowardice are part of the town invasions. They appear whenever the town is in an active invasion state.

If you see them, but not any monsters, there must be a Crimson Dragon roaming the city. They're leashed to the city as well, but might have wandered to a strange area.

The lost souls in Magincia are the ones that are separate from the rest of the events. They're their own contained content.

And an update:

Since last week Thursday, the Generals have been frequently spawning in the invasions. You can determine what the General (or lieutenant or captain) will drop by opening its paperdoll. If the General type is "healer" then it will drop a LMC/MR 3 spellbook. If the General type is "mage" then it will drop a DCI/FCR spellbook. If the General type is "ranger" then it will drop a bow with 40-50% SSI, hit lightning, hit lower defense and 50 or more damage increase. If the General type is "warrior", it will drop a weapon type similar to what it carries (i.e. if it has a club, then it will drop a club) with the same traits as the bow. The only exception to this that I've seen is that the halberd wielding Generals drop broad swords to the top three damagers.

And if you want to get rich quickly, everything that drops (even the slimes) has over 1000 gold and NOBODY is looting. And banks are open in invading towns. A stealth looter can get absurdly rich very quickly since everyone is single mindedly in search of bows and spellbooks.

(And I have at least one of everything now... except the MR3 book, which I gave to a friend. I'll be attending future invasions as a defender rather than a loot-seeker)

Am I playing a different game here? I'm wandering around with my stealther in Trammel towns, Felucca towns, and I couln't see a single invader.. There are no NPC's of hatred,falsehood and cowardice either (seen them once in Britain but they seem to have disappeared ). I suppose the invasion is ended in Drachenfels..

The Invasion Only Occurs When The Faction Sigils In Fell Are Stolen. Depending On The Shard. You May Never See An Invasion.

Of course, on some shards that is quite impossible. Many shards have the factions play completely monopolized by a single large force. The advantage some shards have is that the single large force is playing both sides of the fence, forcing the invasions so they can get the new books.

I wonder what will happen when these groups either get all the loot they want or get bored with the Trammel side of the event. But until then, I thank these guilds for their exploits.
