    I like making goodie bags for noobs and hand them out for free.
    What would you put in those?
    What I'm putting in right now:

    1 regular mount
    1 bluetail
    250 arrows
    100 of each reg
    20 bread or berry oatmeal
    5 moderate pots of each
    1 bone set with leather fillers
    1 blackbolt
    1 mob dropped r50 gs
    3-5 random r30 weapons
    2 r30 bows
    1-5 selentine keys

    Am I missing something? Is anything in here unnecessary?

    Include the bluetail but give steedgrass instead of a regular mount because they can craft it on the Fly and it will keep their bag weight a lot lower.

    I would also probably give them fine arrows as they're not terribly expensive, and it might not hurt to include a few potions, even minor ones to get them in the habit of using them when they get low, if they dont practice using them they probably wont use them when it counts.

    You guys are all missing a key element of the game if you do not include a shield in EVERY bag.

    Guess you're right, I've been in denial about my severe lack of shield use forever. Time to change that :)

    My suggestion was not trolling, just to be clear.
    You ought to use one 100% even vs mobs.
    I saw/played briefly with RoA players that refuse to use one. Triggered me A LOT.
    Just bind it to an easy key to hit and put parry on use or whatever the option in the sub bind menu is called.
    You mitigate most of the damage inflicted to you while parrying and your defense ratings will go slightly up just having the shield out.

    It's a life saver.


    Also: instead of giving them r30s give them some basic mats so they can make their own.

    Sorry I'm not active at the moment. Too much into UO Outlands.
