I recently managed to sneak into a frozen continent event gate (it took me some stealth attempts through several gates and alot of hiding and waiting...). Being in, I was really excited and thought this will be fun. Finally, I happened to see some of the christmas event contents. And definitely it would be profitable. Why not? Well here is the sad reality I had to face: 1. You can't steal in the event area. (Ok, this is really lame.) Then I thought that I have to rely on other means and so I waited until one of the tamers dropped with their loot on them... and I found out that... 2. everything is kinda blessed and there is nothing to loot out of corpses. (Ok, and this is really non-felucian style (not to say the big bad T-word)) 3. Hcoins (and platin too ?) drop directly into the bags of the players, or? So I can't even be faster while looting, which would make me visible anyway. So yeah, in conclusion, thieves are missing most of the december/christmas fun and are totally social outsiders (even more than normally). Even when you are able to sneak into the events, you can't do anything that defines a thief (stealing from monsters is NOT thieving in the sense of UO). Maybe I could cause some havoc at the chests, that I have read about. But who knows, probably they are unaccessible and only available for the person with the key? I don't even know where they are placed in every instance. It's not like an everyday feat to be able to sneak into the events (ergo no experience on the positions). It's just a sad month... for me, other thieves and in the end for felucia.
