What a fun night in dungeon Deciet the other day! Once again, a whole lot of players rushed head-first into Felucca, trying their best to make it out alive with good loot. With the changes since the event last month in Hythloth it was more fun!
Way back in the day, dungeon Deciet used to be one of the top spots for hunting monsters. Naturally it also became a hotspot for player killing as well. I personally haven’t spent so much time on the bottom floor of Deciet in what must be 15 years now. It was very nostalgic running around the Lich Lord room, the hidden passageway in the lava room, seeing that room with the 3 stone faces where I used to spend a lot of time killing Liches.
HOT Guild did very well during the event. I personally stole 3 of the gargoyle statues (which you can see if you watch the event video). It was very harrowing trying to avoid all the thieves and other people trying to kill you.
One big and unfortunate thing about the event was the entrance to the Primeval Lich area did not get blocked off. While I ran all the way out through the front of dungeon (which is what was intended) most of the rare statues were brought out through the Stygian Abyss area. Our guild swept the entire dungeon and there was literally no one left, they all exited through there.
But it can only get better from here! Event Moderator Bennu certainly made things more fun this go around. The safer starting area, information on what we will be doing, and less overpowered monsters made the focus much more on stealing and PVP this time. Please encourage him to do it again, and soon!
Finally, I spent a lot of extra time adding notes in the video so people who may not be familiar with Ultima Online can follow along more easily. I also used several of the Midas parody songs to give it more impact. Please share it far and wide to help promote the game. We have seen a lot of people coming back to play recently after they learned the game is not dead yet!
Have a Nice day.
