Siege Perilous


Welcome to UO Utopia



We have many unique creatures, pets and features. For example skinning many creatures gives a chance of dropping leather in their skin colour. Some of these are very common with a 100% chance of obtaining that colour, whereas some are extremely rare, like the ethereal semi-transparent hue of the Shadow Wyrm is the rarest, followed by the ice or fire hues of Ice and Fire Wyrms, then the white hue of a white wyrm (1150 for "dirty" wyrm, 1153 for pure white wyrm).  Normally the Shadow Wyrm drops one of two hues of charcoal barbed leather but other creatures may drop leather in the type's default hue. eg. green for barbed leather, red for horned, blue for spined. Dragons will drop either red or brown barbed leather according to their hue.


Most pets are tamable at the usual UO levels. However we have several "advanced" pets which require taming skill > 100. As 100 is the maximum you can train this skill to, a quest needs to be completed to acquire the Tamer's Heart Amulet. This is a necklace which raises your skill in Animal Taming and Animal Lore to 110 but can only be worn by a GM tamer. This also increases your control slots by one to a maximum of 8 total for a GM tamer. Visit an Animal Trainer and say "pets" to get your increased control and stable slots (max 30) as your skill increases. The quest is available by the Skara Stable just North of the bank. You will be instructed to gather a full set of Paragon leather male amour which has a chance to drop from Paragon creatures with hit points over 2500 while a Paragon. This means scorpions at the lower level.


Paragon creatures: Any mid to high level creature has a chance to spawn as a paragon. These are hued gold and have a gold name so they are easy to spot. They get increased aggression,hit points, stats, fame and gold so they are significantly harder to kill than the regular creature. A paragon lich is a formidable oponent and a paragon named lich (ancient lich) is very tough indeed and might even one-shot you! Note that a paragon creature will never run away from you, they will keep hitting you until your last breath! They have a small chance of dropping a highly desirable coloured treasure chest appropriate to the monster's level. There is also a very small chance of an artifact drop. Boss/Champion monsters cannot become paragons.


Starting at the top of the food chain:


Greater dragon: These spawn in different hues at different locations. In Destard one spawns in the regular hue. At other secret locations they spawn in Sand, White, Black, Red, Green and Blue hues. Normally these are light coloured but 1:4 chance of a vivid darker hue. Greater dragons are a challenge to tame but are the epitomy of a tank and potentially have very high skills. Up to 130 after taming and up to 1100 hit points. You can only control one at a time as they take 5 control slots. A challenge to tame, but a superb "tank".


Fire and Ice Wyrms. These spawn in blaze and ice blue hues. Skills can be as high as 130 after taming. These creatures have a hot or cold damaging aura until tamed. At high magic levels they are cablable of casting heal on themselves. In pairs these make a powerful weapon.


Ancient Silver Steed and Dark Steed mounts. These have skills and stats a little higher than a regular White Wyrm with maximum skills after taming of up to 120. At high magic levels they are cablable of casting heal on themselves. A superb method of instant protection or death dealing.


Toxic Dragon has a poison aura until tamed. It has poisoning skill of the Deadly level and is poison immune itself. Useful for dealing with poison or acid elementals.


Cu-Sidhe are only tamable by elves. You can become an elf by drinking an elf transformation potion which is craftable. A human can ride a Cu-Sidhe, however, if they wear "pads of the cu-sidhe" boots. The Cu-Sidhe is quite a tough fighter, perhaps around the strength of a nightmare. They can heal themselves and, allegedly, their owner.  Found in Twisted Weald, Ilshenar facet.


Unicorns are poison immune and will cure you of poison at a particular health level. Found in the Lost Lands of T2A these pretty mounts are not very strong individually but utilise the equine pack instinct and you can control up to four unicorns at once...


We also have the Korpre evolving pets which you can tame in Doom dungeon. They all start life looking the same - a silver slime - but as they gain XP from fighting monsters, they evolve into one of four creature paths; daemon, spider, titan or hoard demon. Although very weak as a slime-like creature they will become a superb tank at full maturity. It is said that Korpre of the same type and opposite sex can be pursuaded to mate and lay an egg which will hatch into a bonded Korpre. I have yet to see this happen...


Apart from these pets there are occasionally "one-of-a-kind" creatures introduced at special events some of which may be tamable.
