    Dear UOR Community,

    I am delighted to host the next free resist spells session for the shard. This is a great time to get any and all characters to GM resisting spells for free. I especially encourage established players to pass the message in Occlo and to any new players you come across during your adventures.

    The event will be held at my personal residence by Vesper, so behave! The session will start from 16:00 EST on Sunday 15th April. The event will last for about 48 hours.
    Please, show up dead and walk to the green tile next to the healer and you will get resurrected. DO NOT, i repeat DO NOT wrestle or fight as you can kill fellow benefactors of the event. Training lore skills or healing is accepted and I will provide about 100k bandages for those that want to macro healing.To get your resisting spells, stand on any of the 9 red flashing tiles. Failing to do so means you wont raise resisting spells!

    I will see to get event Moongates setup that can take you to the location from Occlo, Skara Brae and Bucs Den (usual event gate locations). Failing that, just walk to Vesper you cant miss the keep!

    Looking forward to this!

    Some quick questions - what is the minimum resist the character needs to start out with in order to benefit from the event? Also, roughly how long does it take to go from that minimum to GM?

    Thanks @merlin8666 !

    @Plentimon you can easily GM resist starting with zero! If you start at the beginning you should be able to GM 2 characters per account (assuming your connection is somewhat reliable or you check in in case you lost connection). @merlin8666 's resist sessions tend to go plenty long enough for this.

    This event will be slightly different. I will have around 10 casters instead of 5, so should run for about 48 hours instead of the usual 4 days.

    I'm afraid not Labeler. I am not comfortable with running pet resist sessions. Only a handful of pets will be at my roof, from people I know and trust.

    Hi everyone. Now that the Easter event dates are public, I have postponed the resist party to start immediately after. That way noone has accounts/characters tied in the session.

    Thanks for continuing to run these!

    Every time one is put on the server does grow. Seen so many new faces join uor over the last few months , and some part seems to be from word of mouth knowing their past grind of doing resist can be eliminated and that they can knock it out 3 chars at a time.

    3 years ago when I started I was amazed by these. First time in 20 years I had gm resist lol. Seems that feeling remains true for the new wave of players.

    Agreed. I have GMd 3 chars in these events.

    I remember back in the day grinding away at the reapers north of Minoc.

    Started doing that here..... 15 years has significantly reduced my patience for that kind of grinding...... these events popped up and saved me..

    I actually hit GM on my faction mage back in the day by taking ebolts to the face. That was fun.

    Yeah I never even tried to have GM Resist back on live. First time I achieved it was solo macroing it on Hybrid many moons ago. Funny enough I finished it right before I quit. Never even PvP'ed once with the character :(

    I don't know how others did it back on OSI, but I managed to get GM because (IIRC) I was already nearly there when they implemented 8x8. There was a spot you could stand inside of a small tower (I think maybe in the hedgemaze??) where a daemon would spawn. You could spam heal on yourself and gain standing in the same spot. Once they changed that I remember feeling sorry for new players who would practically never be able to get GM resist now. This was actually one reason I was hesitant to join UOR, because I incorrectly assumed it would have OSI-style restrictions and I would not have been willing to accept them. The resist even that @LanDarr hosted summer of 2017 had a major impact on my attitude towards this shard, which has only improved as I play more.

    For nostalgia's sake, here is me GMing resist on Chessy:

    Yeah, it was really hard back then. I played on Baja. Worked most of it up in the reaper grove. Then took whatever gains came from PvP. I used to play a TON of factions. Gonna jump in here too. I think CoM. That's what I played back then, so gonna stick with it.

    It was a faction ebolt that gained that final .1 to 100.

    My brother got to 98-ish resist right before 8x8 from Evil Mages. There was a spot outside where they couldn't get to you near a corner. My brother would run out, get dumped on, run out of LOS to heal. Rinse and repeat. Don't think he ever hit GM. Not sure. We left for DAoC around that time.
