Ultima Online : Cartography Skill Training

Posted Mar 05, 2009 by Jon Wood's V D has provided us with this new guide to Cartography Skill Training in Ultima Online.

Cartography is the skill you must know if you want to be a treasure hunter. The skill allows you to decode treasure maps found on monsters, and then use them to dig up the treasure. It isn’t a very fun skill to train in but the ends do justify the means. Like most skills, it gains up fast and steady in the beginning but it crawls down to near halt when you get high up there. Pretty much the way you raise this skill is just by drawing maps over and over again. Pure excitement!


The first step in Cartography training is buying a mapmaker’s pen from a NPC mapmaker (or another player with a high tinkering skill can make one for you). Next is buying a lot of blank scrolls in any mage shop or blank maps from the shipwright who is usually where a lot of the NPC mapmakers hang out. I recommend using blank scrolls because they are much cheaper, and since they will stack in your bag you can carry more of them at one time.

Star Trek Online : Alien Identification Contest

Posted Mar 05, 2009 by Keith Cross

Cryptic Studios has posted a contest where players are asked to come up with the story behind a new alien race, where the author of the best entry will earn a spot in the Star Trek Online beta.

Travelling the Universe on a starship, you’ve met a lot of different people from a lot of different planets. It’s rare for you to come across a new entity, but that’s a part of the thrill. So, when you strolled into the cantina at your latest docking station and saw an empty seat next to someone from a species you’d never seen before, you smiled, sat yourself down, and said, “So, where are you from? And can I buy you a drink?”

Your new friend may smile and accept the drink, or they may stand up in disgust because you’ve violated one of their cultural taboos, or they may throw their arms around you in glee because where they come from “can I buy you a drink” is a marriage proposal.

You tell us their answer. What planet are they from? What kind of culture did they grow up in? How did they end up here, sitting next to you in a space station cantina?

Zu Online : Swordsman Leveling Guide

Posted Mar 05, 2009 by Keith Cross

IGG has posted a guide for leveling the Swordsman class in Zu Online.

Among the five clans of Zu Online ( ), the Swordsmen are the best damage dealers. Master Swordsmen wield the most powerful spells. Magic that can cause a lot of damage to a single target. Also, their spells cool down fast and can be cast instantly. Because of this, Swordsmen can level faster than of the other clans.

Now, let’s talk about how to spend their talent points to increase the number of monsters they can slay. To slay monsters quickly, Swordsmen need to spend almost all their talent points on the “Cohesion” branch.

First Row
Spend 10 talent points on “Lethality” until it increases the critical strike damage bonus by 14%. This may be one of most practical talents of Swordsmen.

Second Row
Spend 10 points on “Disabling Sword” to increase the Garrote chance of Flying Sword, God Sword and Multi Sword Strike spells by up to 11%.

“Subtle Strike” will not help slay monsters faster, so it can be left out for now.

Third Row
Spend 1 point on “Store Spirit”. Then you can use this talent when you have enough vigor, which will really help slay monsters.

The other talents on this row will not help accelerate monster slaying, so they can be ignored for now. However, we still need to spend more talent points on this talent branch in order to activate the talents on the fourth row. So spend 9 talent points on “Flying Sword Strike”.

Fourth Row
Spend 10 talent points on “Mortal Strikes” to increase the Critical Strike chance of Air Explosion, Fury of the Universe and Swirling Wing Spells by up to 16%.

“Soul Shaking” reduces the movement speed and attack speed of a single target, so it can be ignored for now.

Fifth Row
As for the talents in the fifth row, “Malice” is first on the list, so pump it up until it increases the chance of Critical Strike by 15%. This is another one of the most practical talents of the Swordsmen.

“Disabling Shot” is almost useless when fighting against a crowd of monsters, so it can be ignored for now as well.

Sixth Row
Spend 10 talent points on “Extended Blast” to increase the area of effect of Air Explosion, Fury of the Universe and Swirling Swords spells by 80. This talent is very helpful, especially for fighting against monsters while away from the keyboard.

When you have enough talent points to spend on the talents above, you should be around Level 207. At this level, you should be a veteran, and with the power you’ve gathered, it’s time to start mastering PvP, if you haven’t already. It’s all up to you. Remember that, to level fast, Swordsmen must use a Bolus of Rapidity to increase their experience gained. Also, before fighting AFK, Swordsmen should use Soul Power and make sure they have enough Soul Herbs left in their backpack.

Conquer Online : Carnival Event

Posted Mar 05, 2009 by Keith Cross

TQ Games has announced details of their Fallas Carnival event in Conquer Online.

Fallas is a traditional celebration in Valencia, Spain, which was began back in the Middle Ages. All the artisans used to hang up planks of wood called "parots" during winter to support their candles while they were working. At the onset of Spring, these pieces of wood would be burned as a way of celebrating the end of the dark Winter working days. After a while, they began to put clothing on the "parot", and then started to try to make it more identifiable with a well-known local personality. These "parots" were the first "ninots" (puppets or dolls). With time, people of the neighborhood started organizing the process of the creation of the Fallas and various monuments of various figures were born.

Several years back, a group of foreign merchants arrived in the middle kingdom from across the sea, and brought this grand festival to the residents of Twin City. This March, the blaze of this celebration will light up the universe of Conquer Online!

EverQuest II : Lavastorm Quest Changes

Posted Mar 04, 2009 by Keith Cross

The folks at EverQuest II are advising players of upcoming changes to Lavastorm which will make some writ quests obsolete.

Almost all of the mobs in the zone have undergone a change in level. As a result of this 40+ Writ quests that previously sent you into Lavastorm needed to be adjusted, too. It can be frustrating and misleading to be offered a quest that is level 41, and then find out that the target you must defeat is level 46! (I don't like it and I bet you don't either.) A few only required slight level changes to match the level of the beasts you must kill for that quest. Others needed to be completely reworked due to the lack of level 40-44 mobs in the zone. The majority of those writs will now send you into Everfrost.

I wanted to inform you of this upcoming change and encourage everyone to complete any Lavastorm writs that they may have before Elements of Corruption (GU51) hits Live servers."

Warhammer Online : Crafting Changes

Posted Mar 04, 2009 by Keith Cross

Mythic Entertainment has posted a brief notice about crafting skill changes that may have gone unnoticed because of other big additions included in the 1.2 update for Warhammer Online.

As many of you may have noticed in the Game Update 1.2 Patch notes, we have given players the ability to exchange their current level of Scavenging for an equal level of Butchering. This was implemented due to the changes to the Apothecary trade skill.

In order to perform this switch you will need to visit either Lorne Foulsteel in The Inevitable City (Destruction) or Elsbeth Reiss in Altdorf (Order) They will then give you a quest to complete, "Welcome to the Meat Market", which will correctly train you in the Butchering trade skill if you had the Scavenging trade skill.

Former actor Frankie Muniz is returning to the race track in 2009 with teammate Simona De Silvestro under the Team Stargate Worlds banner. Both racers are entering their third season on the Cooper Tires Atlantic Championship Series and their first season as Team Stargate Worlds.

Stargate Worlds is the big beneficiary of the deal as they put up no money in the sponsorship but will have their logo seen by thousands of race fans!

Runes of Magic : New Dungeon: Kalin Shrine

Posted Mar 04, 2009 by Keith Cross

The folks at Runes of Magic have announced the addition of a new Kalin Shrine high level dungeon to the game.

SAN FRANCISCO - March 3, 2009 - Frogster America, Inc. today announced details of new content that is being added for the launch of Runes of Magic, the Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) that is redefining the standard for free-to-play titles. In preparation for the game's March 19th release, the development team is adding an additional high-level dungeon, Kalin Shrine, a mysterious place where the dark mage Regin oversees minions that are sure to challenge any adventurer.

Located in the dusty wastes of the Dust Devil Canyon, the Kalin Shrine was built back in the mists of time, even before the blossoming of the of the old kingdoms. Ancient knowledge resides in the heart of the Shrine where Regin once kept this knowledge safe for his own followers, but now is using the power of the shrine for his own dark purposes. Well armed players are now being recruited to drive him out of the sanctuary. This is not a simple task; it can only be undertaken by Level 50 warriors, since the passages and levels of this lost shrine are populated by ghosts, rune guardians and grave robbers.

Boss level opponents also support the powerful magician in his sinister works. They all require unique strategies to defeat and a minimum six person group of adventurers. Just one of the obstacles for players to overcome in this struggle is a crystal tortoise which can freeze players in a block of solid ice for ten minutes. However, the most testing battles are at the heart of the shrine.

Using black magic, Regin is able to resurrect some of the slain bosses and summon them to his aid. Should adventurers master this quest and free the shrine from the evil influence, their troubles will be rewarded with booty in the form of rare armor.

Runescape : Agility Overview

Posted Mar 04, 2009 by Jon Wood Runescape Correspondent Faisal Baig writes this article outlining the Agility skill in the popular old-school MMO.

Many people play RuneScape without actually realizing all that you can do in it. The first step is to learn about all of the different skills you can train and practice. Many of the skills will help you have a bigger range of ways to make money. Each time you practice a skill you will gain experience or p and when you reach a certain amount of experience, you'll gain a level in that skill. The total amount of experience required to obtain the next level is the same for each skill, for the most part. The problem many encounter is that there aren’t any fun skills in non-members worlds, but rather in members. You can get past this problem if you learn to utilize the skills in the right way. The best way to start is by finding out what each skill’s primary role is! For my next few articles, I will be going in depth on all or most of the skills.
