Dallas Van Winkle says:

Thanks for the “drop what you are currently holding” hotkey, thats one of the few things I’ve never used in Razor (or if I have, I don’t remember).

b dog says:

Thanks (TONS) for the index!

Boss Paw says:

Thank you sir, this is very helpful.

Realrexor Hawkins says:

Been playing for 3 years and theres still things i didnt know about this vid helpt a LOT keep on the awsome work

John King says:

can i somehow use spells without double clicking them all the time before i can do an attack? its annoying

TheWendolGuild says:

before you make another video blow your nose and clear your throat try some hot tea or something lol

TheChesnokov says:

the fuck is this so complicated for, i just want to play the god damn game. already lost interest with how complicated it is

Fred Porter says:

watching it. super chunk/bomby

Shawn L says:

problem; Even following forum tips; RAZOR STILL MAKES THE STUPID CLIENT FLASH EVERY 10 seconds! It is THE most annoying  system thing Ive seen in a mmo.

Silidons says:

Thank you for this, I am completely new to UO and was trying to figure stuff out (like how to open the bank lol) so helping us noobs out with the super basic stuff!

James Pyle says:

What is the point of the [pouch macro rather than just using useonce pouch macro or something? Bit confused on that.

Dakota Johnse says:

mine says “called runscript when not marked in progress,”

John Schumacher says:

Don’t let these comments get you down dude. There’s hundreds of quick and dirty razor guides. We can afford to have a couple like yours.

Lateknight says:

thank you for doing this video. helped me a lot to getting started on the sever!

James Pyle says:

Some of the stuff that you just said were like total opposite of stuff I just heard in another video from a huge PvPer.. like for instance using the toggle Razor hotkeys on and off for one..

Not saying you’re wrong just an observation

Gamingcrafter 215 says:

Thank you so much for this awesome tutorial, if anyone is interested in what IPY3 could of been check out An Corp, same coding team that did IPY + some new people. 

Daniel Marques says:

Tried to make a macro for spiritspeaking/dispel but when I contact the netherworld my razor does not read the SysMessage “you contact”

Here it is:
UseSkill SpiritSpeak
Pause 6.50sec
If (SysMessage “already”)
CastSpell Dispel (#41)
Pause 3.00sec
Wait For Target
Exec: Target Self
End if

can you gimme a hand? I think the problem might be because the server is running no 2.0.3 client and my razor is at 4.0

joseph stevenson says:

Great video thx a bunch! You are the man! Is there a way to set a macro to unstack a stack one by one?

Bad Cat says:

Huge thanks to you for this video, it helped me a lot

MrCwhitt75 says:

Is there anyway to maximize my play screen? Annoying trying to play uo on a 30 inch monitor only seeing 5 inches of game

l Reaper says:

Devin Grady says:

I wish I could thank you more personally, but this was fantastic. This server is in fact my first UO experience (due to that reddit post) and every time you mentioned one of those redundant newbie tips I sighed with relief. Thanks a bunch man, good job.

deathscreton says:

Wanna thank yah for the video upload. Just like Devin, this is my first time exploring UO and I still have many questions as to accounts, classes and the such. But watching this video has given me a lot of insight on how to go about starting out at least. Many thanks Alan.
