    Hello,

    Not sure if this was ever a thing in UO but I am tired of having my trapped pouches snooped.

    I would like to see a plat reward, not sure of cost exactly, that allows you to open it and it always pops a 1 damage magic trap.

    This pouch should weigh maybe 15 stones and be blessed.

    Just a thought, I'd like to be able to talk to new players in Occlo without redoing my pouches all the time.

    Your thoughts?

    Instead of plat, I'd rather have this cost 2 million gold or something. Gold sink yea!!!!!!

    Hey it could be a gold sink for sure. 2 mil maybe a little steep to equip on my chars but it could be a long term goal haha, I do like it being gold as much as plat though.

    I like it! I am not sure about the high prices though. I'd rather see it at prices similar to snow (10 plats in this case?). And it should be distinguishable from normal pouches. Sure one could argue with era accuravy, but it's not really changing mechanics or balancing, while for example stacking pots changed alot.

    An interesting good idea. I support it. BUT

    I suggest it should instead require recharging with magic trap scrolls and hold up to 99 charges. I don't want para nerfed entirely. People should still have to plan, just perhaps not to the annoying extent of carrying a billion unmarked pouches.

    I kind of like the idea of the "pop pouch" being a skullcandle which releases a nice big explosion and noise when used.

    Definitely not. Re trap your pouches and get over it.

    Might as well remove the paralyze spell... No point in having it anymore then. While we are at it lets add unlimited magic resist pants for plat too. Mages shouln't be able to cast on me after I get together 1000 plat. Oooorr, lets just remove PVP all together and then we can all just kill mobs together.

    Big thumbs down from me...

    No disrespect to the OP. Just explaining my opinion.

    PS Why are you allowing someone to snoop you long enough to pop all of your pouches?

    Hey, they pop one and I don't know which one of 15 they popped, maybe there is a way to know?

    And just a side note I leave with at least 10 pouches usually up to 20 depending what I'm doing. It's not like paralyze is what does me in or running out of pouches, I am long dead before I use all 10 breaking para lol.

    It's not like people don't run with pouches already, paralyze is already typically a waste of mana.

    Do you use the "use once" agent?

    I do use use once, but if someone else pops it by snooping it doesn't remove from use once counter, least not for me. I'll check again.

    I think it would be a cool idea only if it had charges and 10-20 max charges and snooping wouldn't use up any charges.

    *also not just be able to drop magic trap scrolls on it. I would make it so you had to cast magic trap on it over and over to recharge it.

    I feel like snooping should use up charges, that's also one of the "costs of doing business" to avoid paralysis.

    Only 20 charges would defeat the point.

    And a magic trap scroll is actually more expensive than casting it in theory. But I see your point, you want recharging it to be interruptible and hard to pull off in combat. That's fair enough.

    Will it function for characters that have zero skill points invested in magery?

    Some of you should be ashamed of yourselves.
