I wouldn't mind a 7x
I think I made it to 93 on Heath and stopped bothering. Plenty of 5x chars... I think Heath is my only 6x actually. I hate skilling up.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

Same. I have a bunch of 4-6x chars but eventually I just want to play them and having 95ish of a skill is enough.
Recently started training some of them again though. Main is up to 98 resist, might be GM by the time I get home from work!
I honestly think it was too fast even before with ROT..
I really have no idea why people complained about skill gain, it's beyond my comprehension, I guess I play a different game.
i played my newb character yesterday and gained 2 points in archery in 2 hours... and u want to slow down skill gains? wow that would be lame
The only people bitching about gains being too fast are the ones sitting on 6 7x characters with multiple castles / keeps though. I think most of the skill gains are reasonable, and some are just plain retarded. Especially resist, taming, and discordance. I macrod my discord for over 24 hours and got zero gains, and my skill was only 88... it's still really useful at that level, but I'd like GM it in a reasonable time frame.
With current skill gains: making a dexxer = easy, making anything else = get ready for a long grind. Even in the current state things aren't so bad for newbs though. As I posted in the newbie forum, you can make a dexxer bard that can solo OLs and dragons in less than a week so newbies don't have that much to complain about. Real pvp requires a 5x mage template of some kind though, and that will take some work.
LESS FORUM PVP MORE UO PVP. /thread
Every once in a while, when im feeling masochistic.. or find that the summer doest heat up my flat enough.. i consider macroing resist on my reds. then i realize that in house is 50% gains and that theres no way to join a militia. game over.
