    Curious if anyone else has been told this.

    I am a resource gatherer, mining is my favorite activity (yes I am pretty boring).
    My character is Badger and I always play in multi-player mode and NEVER see anyone else in the mine.
    A guild mate is the crafter that uses the resources that are collected.

    Well yesterday this guild mate was playing at the same time I was mining and said someone asked to be friended and he started receiving repeated rants from some lunatic.

    "I know you are Badger, you are in my mine, get out."
    "Stop taking my ore, get out"
    "I am contacting my guild leader"
    I am paraphrasing because I never got the messages directly, and they were in really bad English.

    The guild leader was much more polite, so I give him credit for that. And he proceeded to explain why this mine belonged to his group. I suggested we take the entire conversation to the forum but he did not think that would be good idea. So I will not mention any names or groups.

    Even though I LOVE this location I will reveal its location further down. It is the perfect level for my current combat skills. The monsters are just right for my melee combat levels. A challenge but doable.

    Top Level: Kobol Warriors, with gold ore.
    Transition area: Hardened Skeletal Warriors and Archers, more gold ore.
    Second Level: Kobol Warriors, Mages, Satyrs and Earth Elementals with Silver ore and diamonds.

    I remember the old UO days before Trammel. The Minoc mines were always filled with people mining.
    In the back of the mine, just across the "Call Guard" line was somebody with a Cutlass killing any miner with a pickaxe, shirt and short pants claiming to be the greatest PvPer in the game., but would recall away if anyone with a helmit walked back there.

    So in the spirit of the community working together and having a good time just hanging out. I invite every miner in the game, in multi player mode, to the Community Owned Elysium mines tonight. I will be on tonight at 7:00pm Portalarium time. I will do what I can to help protect you, but it would be good if you had some fight/heal skills.

    Time for us to take back these public locations from those groups that think they are privileged and can claim any non-PvP area they want.

    Hope to see lots of people there.

    Nobody has an exclusive right to a scene. Just ignore them.

    I'm not a miner really, though I do go on silver/gold spurts every now and then for enchant/masterwork purposes. I just want to say that I find that quite amusing, lol. I would have loved to see the convo that went on between the two. Keep up the good work! :D Also, I own all cotton bushes and the walkway up to the hilt fortress, it's mine! :p

    I don't understand why you don't just get out of his mine. :)

    Pretty sure all the Mines are now set to "Solo/Party" scenes. You'll never see anybody in them that you are not currently partied with.


    Personally : A liberal application of the "Blocked Players" functionality, and Carry On. :)

    For me, this is the extreme value of Friends/SPO. I never have to listen to this kind of extremely alienating BS from anyone.

    That was changed in Patch 474 to match the other mines. :)

    A multiplayer only mine would be very cool. I wish they had this, and it had faster spawning nodes. (and it was Verdantis)

    Yeah, they are all instanced now, I know for sure Elysium is, I watch twitch when I am mining and I have seen streamers come in and never seen them.

    It's funny, I'm a big user of friends only online mode to harvest. At the same time, I kind of hate it. Torn between the ease of harvesting vs the social interaction (good and bad) with other players.

    Yes, bad social experiences suck while your having them, but they often make great stories years later.

    Thanks @NRaas I had no idea the mines were Solo/Party only now.
    Well I will still be there at 7:00 tonight.
    And to the person who suggested trolling.
    No this was actually a post to get people to stand up for their rights and not be intimidated by anyone.
    If they so go away, show up in force, 24/7 if possible to make sure they don't get what they want.

    Edited: Thanks to Baron Drocis Fondoratos, instanced should have said Solo/Party like NRaas said.

    All scenes are instances. There are no scenes that are not instanced.

    But.. o_O Even if it was multiplayer how would they chase you off? Kite some mobs onto you? Try to steal your nodes?
    It makes very little sense.
