Legacy Dungeons are the original dungeons, such as Cove, Shame, despice, ect.. correct?

As I understand it you can obtain Artifacts just by killing the normal monsters there over time? Or must you kill a boss monster in them?

Does it matter if you are in Tram/Fel?


Also, do the Fel dungeons give more gold/items than their Tram equivilant?


Thank you for your time

Faster to get the artefacts in Felluca.
Double the resources... same amount of gold.

Felucca dungeons will drop more virtue artifacts than Trammel.

Gold drops are the same, but the Fel dungeons have champion spawns in them.

Any monster can drop a virtue artifact, but I've heard that the drop rate is higher for harder monsters. All the ones I've gotten have been off pretty easy stuff though (mostly earth elementals, while training various weapon skills).

The virtue dungeons work on a point system, much like Treasures of Tokuno did. Every monster you kill in the virtue dungeons gives you points, and the more points you have, the better your odds at getting an artifact drop. The drop itself can come off anything you kill in a virtue dungeon (you can't see your point amount anywhere).

In Felucca, you get more points per monster, so the drop rate is better for the same amount of kills. The fame of the monster killed affects the point amount, the more fame (ie the bigger & stronger) the monster, the more points you get.

Every kill you make has a chance of giving you an artifact drop, this is why most people agree that you get more arties by killing lots and lots of weaker things fast rather than only killing bigger monsters which take more time. Personally I feel it is best to first kill some bigger monsters to give you an initial points bump, then move to killing weaker things as fast as possible.

I personally think you should just go to a dungeon and have fun. I have worked for hours trying to get an artifact to drop with little to no success but if I just go in and have fun beating things up I tend to find a special treat in my backpack more often then not.

I believe I was the one who suggested that you go to the Dungeons of Sin and hunt Virtue Artifacts.

I said this basically because I view the Virtue Artifacts as....as a reward you happen to get while you're training up your characters. And, after New Haven, the Anti-Virtue Dungeons are really the best place to train up to a certain level.

And some of the Artifacts themselves are kinda nice, and a nice supplement to the equipment set of a returning player.

And that statue and that ankh are something pretty much every active player should have.

I agree with Galen. I'm always try to think of ways to multitask. Train a pet or skill, make some gold, pickup hides and get a Virtue item...all at the same time!

Despite my rather fact & number oriented reply earlier I whole heartedly agree, it's best to simply play and enjoy yourself rather than just powergame a single aspect of the game at a time. You're playing games to have fun after all, not to work on repetitive boring tasks (that's what actual jobs are for).

Ferenhelm:

If I can play basketball on one court and have fun..

or

Play on another court and have fun plus a chance to win $1000.00


I would rather learn about the court that pays $1000.00 which is what I am currently trying to do. Find the best courts to play in.

There is absolutely no good resource in game to help you understand progression that I have found. (For example a good map system that shows places of skill level)

Ultima Onlines biggest challenge. The learning curve.

Thank you to all for the replies!

yeah it's kind of hard. Lots of people say 'Legacy dungeons'...but Destard is a legacy dungeon and it's immensely harder than any of the others.

And newbies think 'legacy' is referring to ML content sometimes.
