Hello all, another week brought some more stuff happening at UOGuide.

Image Content Updates
This past week the largest update is related to the Shadowguard Encounters. Everything has been added up to the final roof encounter, uh, mostly because.........I haven't been able to get to that point. The Belfry is actually difficult you know.

A big thank you to Jynxx and Lord Obsidian for updates related to Time of Legends including the: Shadowguard Artifacts, new creatures, and items such as Juo’nar’s Grimoire. Also Arroth Thaniel has been updating other various articles. There has been a lot of contributors updating lately, thanks to them all.


Image Atlantic Shard Portal + Events
Since the Atlantic Shard is where I play it is easiest for me to update all the information about it. I have updated/added to the main "portal" page for the shard. This includes working to update the Atlantic Events section. I plan to attend lots of events to record and write summaries for them. So far we have The Horrible - EM Event and 2016 Winter Classic 1v1 PVP Mage Tournament articles. Another one will be up shortly for the 2v2 tournament held today.
Image Atlantic Community Board Preservation
Halister Marner, the administrator for www.atlanticcommunityboard.com, has gotten in touch with me about transferring the site under the care of UOGuide. The software has gotten dangerously out of date and he does not have the time or resources to keep it running any longer. The tl:dr is the forum will be imported into the UOGuide forum, the wiki will be transferred onto the UOGuide wiki, and the domain will be kept running all the same. If you want to learn more or help out with this project refer to: forum.uoguide.com/viewtopic.php?t=1480

Image UORares Website Updates
In a similar vein as the AtlanticCommunityBoard, UORares.com with be having some updates coming to it. The plan is to turn it into a sort of museum listing information about original rares in the game. I would like to see it spruced up a bit with a more pleasant style. If anyone is interested in helping out with this there is more information available here: stratics.com/threads/uorares-com-updates.362154/

Image New page Contest
As announced already, any person who creates a new article on UOGuide, no matter how small, will be entered to receive a UO Code of their choice worth up to $10. This contest will run through the month of January ( from January 1, 12:01AM EST until January 31, 11:59PM EST). Multiple articles will not increase the amount of entries. The winner will be announced in a news post within a week after the contest end date.

Image More Coming Soon
Be on the lookout for more updates to UOGuide. As always we encourage everyone to help keep the site updated. It only takes a moment to register an account. Editing articles is as easy as posting on a forum. There are currently over 1,600 pages waiting to be created!

Have a Nice Day.

Belfry is easy but time consuming. I did it on a tamer with vet no prob. When it knocks your dragon down it stays flagged on the pet so you simply say all follow me a few times and it'll climb back up. It will NOT knock you off the ledge unless you attack. Disco tamer with vet would be best but make sure your pet is already flagged before going up and not you.

My opinion, it doesn't give enough time to loot the final boss. I lost half the loot due to being kicked out and I have no interest in redoing all the mini bullcrap to get to roof.

I went with a greater dragon and I couldn't heal it fast enough.

Nice guide for shadowguard, looks really well organized. As for the bar, word of death does reflect if your word of death fails to kill the pirate (Man those times when I forgot my level 6 focus ran out). Also for belfry, tamers on the ground can have their pet attack the dragon at almost any location on the top of the platform but they have to back further away from the platform to do so. If the dragon is in the center you would have to be around 10 steps away from the platform and use all kill to get your dragon onto it. Taming mastery 3 consume damage also helps keep your dragon alive forever if you can keep up with the mana cost as well.
