    It is ok that this 5th cicle spell do more damage than 7th cicle like flamestrike? i know that if you have unbalanced stats it will make more damage, but common, 40dmg? thats a lot for a 5th cicle. Anyone knows if this will be fix or its just a normal thing in this server?

    Umm... This is how it was during Ren on OSI. I remember when Factions came out Mindblast was everywhere until people who pvped learned to balance their stats.

    Yes. And in this era on OSI I seem to remember magic staves. And wands/staves dropped from Liches quite often.

    EDIT: I may be wrong about the spell casting staves... I'm not sure.

    I hate Mindblast so much... it's the reason Dexxers can't have nice things (100/100/25 stats) :mad:

    If stats didn't affect things such as healing time, vet healing time, carry weight, etc then who cares, but I'm on the bandwagon that any spell that's such a low level that causes enough damage to keep people from maxing out their templates then it's overbalanced and needs tweaking.


    MB pvp sucks anyhow, worst era of UO pvp.

    No, sorry. re-read it. It said Pre-AOS wands and staves came with the ADDITIONAL spells.

    I clearly remember healing wands back then.

    EDIT: I do not; however, remember paralyze wands...

    if MB worked differently, wouldn't mages get to have unbalanced stats too?

    Apologies for the confusion. What I am trying to say is that yes, despite how we are only using post AOS wands, they were still available before AOS, hence why they are era accurate. The article you linked says that before AOS, the wands (and staves back then) came with more spells than the final list you show right there / that we have now.

    It seems that Chris decided to only have post AOS wand types here.

    Maybe we are talking in a circle... :confused:

    Yeah your right about wands existing, but I was specifically talking about gheal wands.
    I also said gheal wands in particular in my first post

    Anyway my main point is that I think wands (gheals sorry lol) are completely out of place. I don't think you can compare a a gheal pot that you can only use every what is it? 10 seconds? To a spammable non-interruptible instant cast item

    The best part of uo back then was learning how to survive. The fear of dying. Surviving with wands is so god damn easy.. is dying that big of a deal that we need these easy survival tools?
    Completely out of place, but that's just my opinion

    Wands are all over the place.. chests, monster drops, vendors.
    Get a wand. Make a macro. One gheal wand with a macro and you're 100% health with a mage that's out of mana.
    Amiright or amiright?

    You do know there is no way for a mage to re-mana.. and that dex just keeps hittin.
