Compassion What is Compassion? Compassion is one of the eight virtues in the Ultima universe and provides a significant bonus to any players that follow it. Within the realm of Ultima Online players that follow the path of Compassion will be able to resurrect their allies/pets with much more starting health than without it. It is worth noting that this virtue requires the player to be able to resurrect through regular means of either magery or healing. Levels and Bonuses There are three levels of the compassion virtue which provide better bonuses as the player achieves them. 1 - Seeker of Compassion (15+ escorts) - At this level the player will resurrect the target target player with 20% of their maximum hits. For pets this is 5%, this bonus caps at 200hp. 2 - Follower of Compassion (30+ escorts)- At this level the player will resurrect the target target player with 40% of their maximum hits. For pets this is 10%, this bonus caps at 200hp. 3 - Knight of Compassion (45+ escorts) - At this level the player will resurrect the target target player with 80% of their maximum hits. For pets this is 20%, this bonus caps at 200hp. How to Gain Compassion The method of gaining levels in the path of Compassion is very simple, all it requires is for the player to do escort missions, once the player has done a specific number of escort missions they will advance to the next level. Finding escort missions is very simple, there are multiple NPCs in any given town that will respond to the command "I will take thee", after you take them to their destination they will provide you with a little gold (100-400), some fame and points towards the Compassion virtue. By far the easiest way of escorting NPCs is to open a gate to a rune library and gate from there, additionally the moongates work well for players that are unable to use the gate travel spell. Thus far I have discovered five types of NPC's that are escortable, you are able to identify them by their attire and their title on their paperdoll: Seekers of Adventure Nobles Brides Grooms Merchants Tracking Your Progress To view your progress you must open the circle of virtues, this can be done by double-clicking the pentagram above your characters head in the paperdoll By pressing the status button you will be able to track any of your virtues, in this instance we are looking at Compassion. The next gump will allow the player to track their progress, the little orbs at the top of the gump indicate the progress the player is making, as all the red orbs become blue the player will gain a level in compassion. The escorts themselves are rather simple, the player merely needs to run up to one of the previously mentioned NPCs and take them to their destination Upon arriving the player will gain some Compassion Once the player receives enough points towards the virtue and gains a level, the symbol on the circle of virtues will light up: Notes: * A player may only gain up to 3/10 orbs of compassion a day, any further escorts will have no effect. * A player may follow multiple virtues, so obtaining a few levels in the virtue of Compassion can prove to be very useful in group PvP encounters, or even during large PvM events where resurrecting a player with more life may give them the opportunity to regain their body and resume the fray. * There is a 5 minute delay between completing an escort and starting a new one. * Like all virtues, Compassion decays over time so in order to maintain your level the player will need to do an escort mission every now and then. * They take 1 follower slot so be sure to finish a job that you start! * Stratics notes that you can gain compassion by rescuing prisoners in the wild, however I have not yet found any of these in UOR, once more information becomes available I will update this post. * Lastly, I would like to mention that this is a work in progress and that I will continue updating this post as more information becomes available.
