Ultima Online Five on Friday Q&A

Postby GameBanshee News » Fri Sep 11, 2009 1:58 pm

This week's <a href="http://www.uoherald.com/fof/?fofId=172">"Five on Friday" Q&A feature</a> on the official Ultima Online website covers questions about pet equipment, the old bounty system, resizing houses, and more.<br><blockquote><b>Hi ive played the SA beta, and with the altaring items to gargish function while crafting didnt keep the specials, i altared a titans hammer but the specials wernt whirl wind and crushing blow, but had the specials for the newer mace, will this be fixxed? or u cnt use whirlwind as a gargoyle?..</b><br><br>We’re working out an alteration conversion scheme for artifacts right now, actually! The challenge is just what you mentioned: many of the new weapons and armor for the Gargoyles don’t actually match up with any of the classic items’ base stats. For instance, the Pixie Swatter, if directly converted right now, would be insanely fast! (2.25 swing speed!). This is just because of the way base item statistics work (they’re literally tied to the art!)<br><br><br>All in all, it’s a bit of a challenge, but we’re actively exploring a solution – stay tuned!<br>-Draconi</blockquote>
