Welcome to FAQ Friday - Where we've collected together answers to Frequently (and sometimes not so frequently) Asked Questions within the community.

Want to see your question up here? We select questions from the UO Stratics "Ask the Devs" forum, so head over there to post your question and we might answer it in a future post! Please keep in mind that these won’t always address major topics of conversation, this is simply another way of sharing info about the game that won’t necessarily make it into a Producer’s Update or patch note.

Thanks, and have a great weekend!

Gorgon Lens and Gargoyle equipment - From Nails

Q - Currently gargoyles are at a disadvantage not being able to place or wear gorgon lens. humans and elves can wear on two slots to gargoyles zero slots. any plans to address this?

Mesanna - This is something we plan to fix in the future. Gargoyles should be able to wear the gorgon lens since they have glasses.

What are the Benefits of having 120.0 Fishing? - From Fat Lip

Q - With the new power scroll and skill cap for Fishing, what benefits will we get for having 120.0 Fishing vs. GM?

To fish up new Items & Fish? If so, can you please list what items/fish we will be able to get at 105, 110, 115, and 120 respectively?


Shade - These are the things that will be released with the High Seas booster.

Higher levels of fishing will now increase your chances of getting uncommon and Enchanted fish. These bonuses occur at 60, 90, and 120. Legendary fish cannot be caught unless you are a Legendary Grand Master fisher.

Certain orders in the fishing quest are not available until your skill is above 100 fishing. This also means that certain rewards are not available from the quest unless your skill is above 100.

Expansion Pack and MIB's - From type480

Q - Now that the make-over of the T/Map system is complete, are there any plans to look at the MIB's, or is this going to be part of the new expansion pack. The stuff you get from normal MIB's is a little dated now, 99.9% of the stuff you fish up will go to the trash barrel

Mesanna – We agree with you, and we are going to be updating them in the near future.

Sleep and Stoneform - From Drowy

Q - Sleep notes say it should be broken by damage and Stoneform should be able to resist paralysis. Both isnt working. So are the publish notes wrong or its not working as intended?

Logrus – Sleep is broken by damage over a specific threshold, but not broken by self damage. Stone form is broken in that it seems its not applying the damage bonus correctly but stone form does not resist paralysis it resists curses and poison and increases resist.

Running - From whiterabbit

Q - Does anyone know if they nerfed goblins running speed? Ozog used to out run horsie, but now can't keeps up. Just wonders if they dos dat or is it my puter

Mesanna – I was aware of an issue with Orcs (which was fixed), never heard of an issue with goblins. Anyone else seen this? Do the little guys have fast feets?
