PostSubject: We dont like the skill cap   Wed Oct 30, 2013 9:57 am

I have been talking to a few others on he shard who agree, and me and my bro agree that the skill cap isn't cool. YES its oldschool but uno none of the major shards are doing it these days and thats because its more fun.. I cant even have a proper dexxer fencer + tamer... maiinly cuz i need like maybe 100 more.. and thats taken up by the new skills like focus!

Anyway i was thinking maybe we could find common group and raise it to like 950? then maybe we could build characters that are fun and not COMPLETELY one dimensional... pllzzzzzzz

I agree 950 would be a much better option.

dont mess with skill cap its perfect.. not sure what shard you have played on but 700 is max on most.. seems like you and your brother want that changed... I would leave this shard if that happened. Balance is a very important issue with uo if you unbalance it the game can become super boring very fast and ruin that fine equilibrium PIMP .

Agreed, i think its best left as it is. Makes the game more interesting when it isn't easy.

I am still happy with the 750 cap. Seems fair and we have soul stones to help move the skills around.

Will keep watching this thread and see how we go.

I like balanced and thoughtful templates with pros and cons.. 750 is good.

I vote in favour of leaving skill-cap.

Having a cap means you need to put though into your characters and creates purpose for each character. Otherwise I would have one character with GM in everything and only run around with one player.

Imagine going to raid someone who has a 120, maxxed out character in every skill..

I agree - but wanted to get some feedback. No change to skill-cap.

Not that I am round or do much anymore apart from lurk so my opinion is not worth much, but this statement is 100% accurate.

I know the decision for this has been finalised but I thought I might provide some insight into why skill caps are there and why being reserved in adjusting them should be handled carefully.

Having no skill cap removes the need for having multiple characters with multiple armor and skill sets, this impacts on the economy(not that UO has the best economy anyway) and the servers crafter's more directly because there is much less demand for high end items as there is less characters in the world.
But it does not stop there, think about other consumables that are used on a per character basis(i.e Power Scrolls, Stat Scrolls) the value of these is also potentially affected as there is less demand for them.
You could argue that different character use different skills anyway, but there is a potential for two different characters to require +105 in a skill but this is subject to the players build.

No skill cap means it is easier to do most everything because a progress guard is lifted, that progress guard comes in the form of needing to build alt's up to the point of being viable in whatever role you build them for, which costs time and items.

But it goes much deeper than this, sure it is easy to make a no skill cap server, and it is convenient having a character that can do it all but it does not come without a price and if the server is not built to accommodate such a change then it can have negative impacts on many fronts especially if things have not been developed to accommodate such characters.

- Great to see the server chugging along, and awesome to see people drop in here to discuss, Henry has done an awesome job!
