Soooo..... How many of you out there were one of those players in UO that played the game mainly to do the non-combat stuff?? How many of you didn't really care to build magery, magic resist, fighting skills, blacksmithy and all that? Perhaps you were someone who would raise hiding, or lockpicking and cartography for a bit but didnt really ever make it to 95+ skill. You basically just played the game for the sake of playing it, and didnt stress too much about being a top of the line fighter. mage or craftsman? For all you lockpickers.. did any of you get a bit obsessed with running around from town to town picking those pretty much worthless chests in the shops? Did you spend a lot of your free time gaming just wandering the towns to snag those petty items then sell them back to the shopkeeper? Once in awhile you even would come across useless items like iron wire, gold wire, copper wire, and dried herbs too. Though worthless, they fetched a good price in the player-run market. I just wished that the game could have catered to this playstyle a little better. I really dont know if there were many who did play the game this way. But Sometimes I wished that it was more popular. Fishing was also fun. I liked the idea of throwing a bunch of chairs down on a ship with other fisherman and just chatting about real life stuff all while picking up MIB after MIB. Other than these things, most of what I did in the game involved seeing all the things one could do to have fun with the game, other than crafting and fighting. I guess I was pretty much a "treasure hunter" but... no I didnt just buy acquire a bunch of maps and MIB's and pull out one after the other over and over again and stock up my vendor. I never really ran a vendor they were a pain in the neck! I would just keep my junk in a box. It made me wish I wasnt such a single player in an open world, cuz maybe I could have found someone willing to run a vendor for me and gimme a cut on the wares I supplied. I like grabbin stuff but I hate being a pack rat. So yea... outside of PvP did anyone else spend a good portion of their time doing random stuff like this? Just fishing, chatting, looting, seeing all the odd possibilities in the game? It never ends, you can still play UO this way even if you started UO way back in 97. The game changes so much that theres always new things to try out, and new loot appearing. Of course, this type of gameplay is perhaps how exploits are discovered. And I would recommend reporting them rather than benefitting from them. Never ran into any myself.
