    Are we going to get any explanation for the quicksilver nerf or is it going to be ignored?

    Yeah, it was nerfed because it was so overpowered that it wasn't even funny. You could kill high end regular mobs in 2-3 seconds. For instance, a level 9 QS relic proc was lasting for 20 seconds and had the ability to kill a balron in 2 seconds.

    That's a bit exaggerated.. I've only ever noticed QS lasting about 1s per level and at level 8 I've never killed a balron in under 10-15s and that's combined with maxed bloody/molten.

    I've already made suggestions in the other 10 threads on the issue but a 70% reduction in stamina and halving the proc time was a bit much.

    The only thing that quick QS kills helps with is leveling the meta, no one is getting rich farming balrons.

    I've witnessed someone killing a balron with a QS proc in about 3 seconds. It happened multiple times.

    So is there any intention of looking at the reduction again or are you telling the people that spent 300+ hours leveling quicksilver to 10 to get over it?

    Quicksilver itself isn't killing a balron in 3s. 100 damage from bloody, 80 damage from molten PLUS quicksilver (Level 8) and firebreath/flamestrikes still takes 10-12s to kill a balron.

    A FULL proc of quicksilver from a level 6 meta w/ level 8 quicksilver will do anywhere from 200-600 damage.

    How is that remotely OP if it takes 300+ hours to level the pet/relic?

    You can do 600 damage in 10s dual clienting with a bow.. at least the meta costs you $50k to skill scroll it's skills up again when it dies.

    I saw your post about putting damage/length of time back and increasing cool down to 2 min.

    If you follow someone with a quicksilver relic you'll notice that sometimes it doesn't even proc after the normal cooldown timer is up. I'm sure there's a compromise in it somewhere.. is the length of the proc really 2s per level? I've always noticed it to be more like 1s.

    Can I propose a few changes that I think a majority of the shard would agree with?

    1. If you are a factioner or red and u are flagged (someone attacked you) you should not be able to use teleporters (in houses), access house doors, or gate/recall.

    The reason: tired of killing one guy in a 3v6 and the other five run in a house. It's really hurting pvp...

    2. No boats should be allowed near the back of COM base.

    The reason: people use cannons/evs to interupt faction pvp inside the base... Huge disadvantage.

    3. No Tamers in factions. If u have taming, you will be removed and not allows to join

    The reason: with all this meta pet crap and being able to mount a flagged war horse, it's nearly impossible to kill a tamer one v one on any template if they simply hold a g heal. Factions and UO is a game of skill, not items... Or in this case pets.

    It's really dumb to have to fight a group of ten when they have pets and ur running with 5-6... And obviously one v ones are pointless... @Adam @Shane

    It's easy to dirt a warrior. Why don't we test this... I'll get on a tamer with 2 meta pets. U get on any char of your choosing (not a tamer), and we will see who wins I'll put up 1 mil to ur 100k. 10 to 1 odds for u.

    Lol no problem. We don't give a crap about the weapons. We only got them because we r fighting tamers with ten guys behind them.

    In other words. The only reason we got those weapons was so we can pump enough damage to kill a tamer (and still get redlined mind u) like I said, UO is about skill.. Not items or pets... But it's quickly turning that way...

    No. They are coming in with 10 guys and being Turds when they already significantly out number us. I'm talking 2:1 out number us... which is why we made aggy weapons so we can get the quick kills. Anyone complaining about the aggys should realize it's the tamers faults :/ sorry not sorry

    There also comes the problem of mana. With wands 3 guys can kill a group of 5 back to back. Here, 3 guys can kill 3 of 5 back to back. My hammer takes 0 mana.
