    seeing u guys doing a lot of updates and patch made me resub this week.

    keep the good work )

    some things I would love to see

    - using enchanting station needs to be redo( making it easier to enchant/trans)
    - transmute weapons should do full elemental damage ( transmute r50 fire GS should do full fire damage)
    - chaos chest should not drop over 15k gold IMO... got 42k gold off one and now I don't wanna kill mobs anymore. Only looking for chaos chest. (
    - plz do something about small maps, a lot of players don't do them. to many in game.

    Like 2 hours work in Cieradan Dungeon and good farm. If anything it's already too easy to go blue and stay blue because most PvP happens in lawless zones.

    Should be 2.00 max hoping for 1.00 per 100. If they go like 5.00 that’s straight robbing people

    Looking good BPG!

    Might I suggest, as you are thinking of hosting Battle Royal events on the regular, that you develop a system for "GM events".

    Many free UO servers have systems like this, and they basically pop the event and people can travel there from any city. Give yourself an island that is blocked off from players in otherwise normal game play and allow GMs to initiate the event, with a global message, like you see when server is going down that notifies players. They click OK, get teleported, and fun starts after enough players have joined. If you got a system like that going, you could honestly have all kinds of events, battle royals, capture the flag, 1 v 1 tournaments, 5 v 5 tournaments, etc. If you have GMs that can initiate a battle royal on friday, a 1 v 1 tourny on saturday, and capture the flag on sunday without having to notify everyone on the forums, it will mean a lot more fun for the players IMHO.

    Cmon it's not 2h... maybe 3h if you go there there with extra everything and go nonstop without looting and killing extras from the room above, but thats a big stretch.

    Realistically it will take most people 5-6h for 1000 alignment counting everything.

    We are planning to likely give an optional alignment reset(Some reds want to stay red :p). The reason we didn't just reset is we didn't want to ruin people's progress into being red that wanted to be. We'll likely do it with a limited time token that is soulbound or something. We have cleaned up most of the issues of why players went red accidentally so it's a good time to do this for those who were affected and sitting on the fence waiting to be blue. There will be one additional likely forced alignment reset when we implement a new alignment system in the future. We're closer to this but until we have the hit protection in the perfect place(Accident proof for going red) we're not wanting to change it. The new system is planned to be solely time based so there is no "farming" back alignment, it will be a choice to go red and a long-road to come back if you go so deep into red. We're a ways off from this system but we'll do a design thread on it when we get closer, some basic details are on the roadmap page.

    That's the eventual goal. We have to prioritize what our devs work on, so it's not at the top of the list right now. But we'll get there.

    So can u just make an option to ask a gm to reset your alignment? I really don't see the downside to it at least as a temporary option until you figure out alignment.

    Obviously this could be limited to a 1 time use

    What's the deal with these harvesting tools that don't break or drop? What's the perk?

    You're never without a harvesting tool and you help support future development.

    Helping development ok, but harvesting tools are so cheap that I don't think this will sell very much. If it magically unlocked getting the occasional rares from metal nodes again I'd buy 2 for each of my accounts and one for each of my friends :)
