    Love this server, love whats been done here. Cant speak enough about how its managed , I expected the inflation of gold to sky rocket since I took a break , but you guys kept everything in check. Great to see how well this server is I will always play here as long as you guys keep doing what you all are doing, don't get me wrong I will have to take breaks from time to time some short , some maybe longer but as long its managed with love and care like it is now I will always be back. I need to donate soon, not even for the dono rewards which are awesome , but simply for the care and love this server taken care of. Thanks UOF Staff!

    I agree with this - you can remove the time related ones from conquest, but if you base all the rewards on hitting achievements/goals in game, doesn't that cover people ACTUALLY playing? instead of just being logged in, or logging in for events only?

    Conquests are a progression based system, they help set some goals that UO otherwise doesn't provide - I'm sure I speak for many when I say I'd love this..

    it actually gives you something to work for at any level so even new players can feel they have achieved something.

    alot of people got screwed over because it was taken out while they was close to hitting a level of achievement for a title etc.

    It says new Meta pet on there. Is there any information on role it would fill, like replace spider/dragon or another style of mount or something.

    Also how many billions of gold will it cost? If the spider is any indicator the new meta will be almost a billion gold. Spider was good in theory, but 200 scrolls per relic was insane. I know they were being tossed on the ground before but that is way to many for the economy to keep up with. Making spiders costs 130+ million gold is insane. Only the extremely wealthy in game or IRL can actually participate in content gated by a money wall that large.

    That was what Shane put up on http://discord.uoforever.com, so we will see. It sounds like it is all being a secret, for the reveal of a big surprise. Just a little longer to wait. :)

    The age old argument on MMO's (who should have access to end game content), and the powergamers response. There's a very small percentage of the population that actually has spiders, those with spiders, can farm much faster than those without, so it's much more common for their 2nd & 3rd spiders to come along before many others get a spider.... But that doesn't mean they are easy to acquire... or that 130 m isn't that much gold, it's an extreme amount of gold.

    While I don't agree that everything is hidden behind a paywall, nor that you should be able to get a spider in your first year of game play, I do understand the size of the mountain ahead of new players when looking at how efficient veterans can farm, versus a newer player.. It creates a gap between the two that is often insurmountable, as the veterans are always widening the gap with their efficient farming tools. Only the truly dedicated, who jump in bed with some of these veterans really stands a chance to catch up.. And I don't know that as a 20 year old casual game, that's the approach the shard should be taking.

    I've already seen far too many tamers burn out before they achieve their goals, due to the in game gold requirements needed to achieve them..

    I still consider myself a new player as I've only been here about 4 months now.

    130m is a lotta freakin money. I knew right off the bat that a spider was just not in my cards. I still trudged on and made a provo tamer as my first character, so that first month was just spent leveling taming, but in that short time period I have gotten up to a lvl 6 dragon with QS,BT and molten.

    That said I'll always be behind the gold curve. I got lucky on having awesome in game friends for my steed, but that spider... that spider is still not on my table even where I'm at now. I can't even afford the outrageous price of a 120 taming much less the spider at this point lol (and that's even with prices coming down in the summer)

    You've been playing for 4 months and you have a lvl 6 dragon with the 3 best relics and a meta steed. That's a good 40+m right there.

    WTF are you even complaining about? If anything this is proof that it's WAY TOO FUCKING EASY to make gold these days. I definitely didn't have all that shit after 4 months. At this pace you're probably gonna own a spider in a matter of 6 months

    Also, this.

    I just got one yesterday and for farming it's definitely slower than meta drag and steed combo. It's just more relaxing because you never have to heal it

    Nothing girana has ever said has been well-executed, but every now and then a blind squirrel may manage to find a nut.

    Spiders don't make for faster farming. They tank things other pets can't, and as such they make for brainless farming. They are a big bg help for high end holiday spawn, paragons, and bosses. Which, you know, being able to do those things well comes with it's own RNG-based immensely huge benefit lol.

    But yeah even a broken clock is right a couple times a day GG, still clearly so wrong about the vast majority of the statements made. Claims of being a troll are just sad in 2028, the pattern has been established and the kid has a brain made of mush.
