The Ice Staff can be found in both Felucca and Trammel. They spawn
on Giant Ice Serpents with a frequency of approximately one (1) Ice Staff
per thirty six (36) Giant Ice Serpents. I suggest that you search
for them in the outside area of the Ice Dungeon in Trammel, that seems
to be the safest area. The outsides deadliest creature is a snow elemental
in comparison with the Ice Dungeon itself which has everything from Artic
Ogre Lords to Ice Fiends. The Ice Staff makes a great Role Playing item
or Decoration (it can be locked down), but it is easily stealable so be
wary of strangers.
Update October 28, 2003: Since AOS Glacial Staves won't respond to their
command words anymore. It seems OSI has removed this ability permanently.
the Ice Staff has two other powers, first when the magic words "In
Corp Del" is uttered the target victim receives a damaging blow,
but you loose all your mana. When the words "An Ex Del" is
uttered, the target is paralyzed. Note: Although many have stated
they feel the loss of full mana does not justify the use of the
item (the mage is too weak to fight afterwards and does not deliver
a death blow); however, please do consider the following scenario.
It is UO Rares' opinion that if you have two mages with staves
who simultaneously use the "In
Corp Del" at the same time on one victim, that person almost always
falls immediately. This usually allows the two mages to take down
any single foe plus assist each other until mana is recharged.
