Cracked Lava Rock/Geode Beware!

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Longforge, Jul 21, 2011.

    I've seen multiple vendors selling the uncracked rocks for 500k like they are some "mystery prize", open me and take a chance!

    Unless you like 500k black lava rocks that look like Blackrock with a diff name... Geodes and other goodies are about a 2-3 in 10 chance of popping out of one. And less than 1 in 10 for the Weaps.

    Have fun!!!

    Sound like a fair pop for 500k

    Beats the 5 million for the axe on a vendor.

    But wait 2 weeks and it will be cheaper.

    However if weapons are coming out of them... they might hold some nice value.

    1 out of 10 casts gives me a rock on Siege. Should be the same on all shards. So they are pretty easy to come by and I'm only at 110 fishing. In the 60 casts i did i got 6 rocks which gave no weapons tho.

    The rocks arent difficult. Does take lots of time. Dont forget we are using all our stored up hooks.

    When you calculate time getting hooks, time fishing, the lava rocks will hold value.

    I have 6 or 8 different geodes and it looks like weapons are random.

    Image an infused hally. Work is you cant turn them on. I couldnt test mine because it is for a garg.

    There are common items to from rocks. Kind of fun.

    But time will bring down cost.

    weps are fished up as 'mysterious weapon' not from lava rocks
  9. Petra Fyde

    Petra Fyde Peerless Chatterbox Staff Alumnus

    Do not buy these hoping for a weapon. Tane is correct, the weapons do not come from cracked rocks
  10. RavenWinterHawk

    RavenWinterHawk Crazed Zealot

    Hmmm. No weapons. Read was 1 in 10. So maybe its just geodes then.
  11. Petra Fyde

    Petra Fyde Peerless Chatterbox Staff Alumnus

    I have fished up a scepter on Siege, it wasn't in a rock. You get a message that you have fished up a 'mysterious weapon'. There is nothing in the publish notes about them, so I don't know where the 1 in 10 came from, other than someone's fertile imagination.
    I used up 3 of the old lava poles, which seem to last for around twice as long as the new hooks. The first one I took out had already been part used, and since it was Siege, showed 'uses'. It started at 119 and when the hook gave out I was left with a pole with 18 uses.
    Therefore I got 1 weapon in 300 casts.

    RavenWinterHawk Crazed Zealot

    Ah the 1 in 10 might be me - but Frarc indirectly said from rocks on the other thread.

    So let me remove my contribution to mis-info.

    3 1/2 rods and I got 1 weapon fished up.
  13. Petra Fyde

    Petra Fyde Peerless Chatterbox Staff Alumnus

    I think you maybe should read Frarc's post again. :)

    Below is my thread I started if you dont want to follow the link. Sounds like he said can come out of lava rock or fish them up?

    I saw geode. And a black lava rock inside them.

    I have also seen many lava infused weapons. Are the coming out of rocks?

    They can come out of the lava rocks or you can pull them up right away.

    I wonder if the stone footwear serves any real purpose. It sells the same as regular footwear at a cobbler. I just use UOA and sell it all in one Vendor Sell macro hehe.
  17. Petra Fyde

    Petra Fyde Peerless Chatterbox Staff Alumnus

    hmm, I stand corrected. My apologies.
  18. RavenWinterHawk

    RavenWinterHawk Crazed Zealot

    None needed. But I am wondering if he or see saw this happen.

    When you wear it you cant move I was told by a fisherman I met it the abyss.

    And some hues are a bit more rare. Not that it matters.

    That is the message i got also when putting them on....Thinking on the times this would be helpful and the only thing tat comes to mind is vs a boss that sucks you in or teleports you.

    Navery anyone?
  21. G.v.P

    G.v.P Stratics Legend

    Yeah, Gunga was telling me about the different colors, I only got white/gray/blackish colors. I knew about the can't move, but wasn't sure. Yeah, will have to try it out at Navrey haha.

    The thing I like most about these new items is they each weigh one stone, which is very nice. Function without being 255 stones.

    LOL Yeah you know me I'm game if I can get there. Have you tried it yet? And how many different color and facing variations on the geodes are there?
  23. Petra Fyde

    Petra Fyde Peerless Chatterbox Staff Alumnus

    I don't remember who posted it, only that it was someone I trust to be accurate. (Martyna?) but no, these won't be any good at Navrey, or anywhere else. They don't just stop you from moving, can't cast, can't even autodefend
  24. Frarc

    Frarc Stratics Legend Staff Alumnus

    Yeah, my mistake. Someone told me they came from Lava rocks too before i did some testing on TC. So far i only got several different from fishing them up.
  25. Frarc

    Frarc Stratics Legend Staff Alumnus

    3 Colors and 4 directions i found. Not counting the shards.

  26. Lady Storm

    Lady Storm Crazed Zealot

    Thanks Frarc, wondered how many, and color there were.

    I poped open 20 rocks and only got black rocks and geodes.
    personally I am not keen on paying 500k a rock....
    cute deco though

    I posted that.
    If someone else can figure out a use please shout.
    I'm only saving them now if I get a color I don't have. The rest are in the "spring cleaning" pile.

    Yeah, and the odd cross-promotions - Mafia Wars has a Farmer's Insurance promotion/event right now. I'm currently the proud owner of 10 Autoboatomes (from the commercial).
