UO Proficiency System E-mail
Sunday, 26 March 2006
Falckeneint sent us an email with the link of a new page on UO.com explaining how Ultima Online combat will change with the inctoduction of the Proficiency System. Basically, it is a system that puts some caps on the maximum bonuses you can get from items and let you spend points to raise this cap.
Summary:
  • Cap each magical property conservatively.
  • Each character will have a finite number of proficiency slots (tentatively, one for every 100 total skill points).
  • Each proficiency will give the players the ability to exceed one magical property cap by a certain amount.
  • Players can change their proficiencies with minimal restrictions (similar to soulstones: once per day, not in combat, possibly restricted to a safe logout area).
  • There will be "second tier" proficiencies that give additional enhancement.
  • Second tier will have dependencies on first tier.
  • Second tier will be tied to items in-game (through loot drop, crafting, or a combination of both). This will make them a little harder to change than the first tier.
Key:
Cap - The base cap that can be achieved for this item property without using a proficiency.
Cap mod - The bonus this proficiency adds to the basic cap.
Proficiency - The name of the proficiency.
Prereq - The prerequisite proficiency you need to have in order to take this proficiency.
