UOAlive has various methods to obtain Power Scrolls, which are consumables that raise individual skill caps. These include:
  • Champion Spawn system (All facets UOAlive only): most of the Power Scrolls can be earned through this system.
  • Blacksmithy and Tailoring: These skill scrolls are earned as rewards for completing Bulk Order Deeds.
  • Fishing: Obtained by completing Professional Fisher Quests.
  • Imbuing: Obtained through Mastering the Soulforge quests.
  • Treasure Chests (all facets UOAlive only): 105 and 110 Power Scrolls can be found as loot in Cache, Hoard, and Trove treasure chests, related to the buried chest's adventuring profession.
  • Random Power Scrolls dropped at Invasions and Events: https://uoalive.com/forum/threads/uoalives-invasions-and-event-tokens-explained.1255/
  • From the Event Token Stone in Magincia Magical Stone Exchange which has "Random Power Scroll Deeds" and "Choose your 120 Scroll" deeds to purchase for the (event)tokens.
  • You can turn in power scrolls you receive but do not want from any of the above for Event Tokens with Mr. White, to then utilize those Event Token for a chance to get the scroll you wanted on the Event Stone explained above.
All skills have Power Scrolls available, which come in increments of 105, 110, 115, and 120. It's not necessary to use lower increments before using higher ones.

Champion Spawns offer the majority of Power Scrolls.

There are several types of champion spawns available on all facets, including Abyss Spawn, Arachnid Spawn, Cold Blood Spawn, Forest Lord Spawn, and more.

To complete a spawn, one must gather allies and choose a spawn location. If the spawn is inactive, it can be activated using the Valor Virtue(you gain valor by going to one of the always active spawns such as The Glade or Despise and killing mobs). Upon activation, monsters will begin spawning, and white candles will appear in the altar's center to represent progress towards the next red candle. 100% progress results in a red candle appearing on the edge of the altar. If sufficient progress is not made, the spawn will move backwards. And unique to UOAlive, a spawn will restart or end completely if no progress is made within 2 hours of starting. This is to save resources of the server and encourage group play! Additionally, mobs do not not create corpses and disappear on death.


Once enough red candles are gained, the spawn strength increases, requiring fewer kills to advance. At 16 red candles, the champion can be summoned by targeting the Idol. Upon defeat of the Champion players are given Rewards.

Rewards in UOAlive are granted to players upon defeating the champion of a spawn. There are three primary types of rewards: Champion Spawn Artifacts, Power Scrolls, and Scrolls of Transcendence.

Champion Spawn Artifacts:

  • These rewards come in the form of Replicas, decorative rewards, and unique artifacts.
  • The overall drop rate for these rewards is 30%:
    • 10% for a shared (replica) reward
    • 15% for a decorative reward
    • 5% for a unique reward
Scrolls of Transcendence:
  • These scrolls may be awarded for defeating the champion of any spawn or killing random mobs between each tier.
  • Transcendence scrolls obtained in Felucca have twice the potency of those obtained elsewhere.
Power Scrolls:
  • 105 Power Scrolls are randomly awarded for killing regular mobs in a Champion Spawn.
  • 12 Higher level scrolls (110, 115, 120) are only awarded for slaying the champion of a spawn for those who participated split amongst them.

Champion Skulls

In order to summon The Harrower six different skulls, obtained from the six different Champions need to be placed on the altar in the Star Room.

The Six Skulls

Mini Champs:

Mini-Champs are a series of progressive spawns found in the Stygian Abyss dungeon, similar to Champion Spawns, but without the presence of an altar or special rewards. There are a total of 10 Mini-Champs (13 including the Cavern of the Discarded) within the dungeon.

Imbuing Ingredients: The creatures within Mini-Champs carry various Imbuing ingredients, making it an ideal location for players to gather materials for their crafting needs.

Advancement Requirements: To advance to the next level, players must slay the specified number of creatures initially spawned at that level.

For example, in the Secret Garden Mini-Champ, 20 Pixies are initially spawned at Level 1. To progress to the next level, players must slay 20 Pixies, which will continue to spawn until the next level is achieved.

Multiple Creature Types In Mini-Champs with more than one type of creature at a level, players must slay the exact number of each creature type initially spawned to progress.

For instance, in the Passage of Tears Mini-Champ, 20 Corrosive Slimes and 10 Acid Slugs are initially spawned at Level 1. Players must slay both 20 Corrosive Slimes and 10 Acid Slugs, not just 20 Corrosive Slimes, to advance to the next level.

UPDATE Since the Harmony of Heroes Milestone:

We've listened to your feedback and are thrilled to unveil the revamped Champion Spawn system, designed to bring even more excitement and rewards to your heroic endeavors with friends! Solo players, fear not! We understand the importance of catering to individual champions of the realm. As a result, solo players will receive a baseline of 6 scrolls, ensuring that this change won't impact your solo adventures. Keep rolling those scrolls at the current drop rates and conquer the challenges that lie ahead!

But for those who thrive in the company of allies, a plethora of new rewards and challenges await you!

How does it work?
When two or more players join forces, each participant will receive a guaranteed four scrolls from a Champion, along with the exciting tier bonuses they achieve together. Your teamwork clearing the Champion spawn will determine how you progress.

Now, let's talk about these bonus scrolls.

We're introducing three tiers of rewards and challenges.
These tiers are based on how well and how quickly you and your group progress through the champion waves and call forth the final champion boss.
  • In the third tier, you'll receive one extra scroll, increasing your chances of obtaining a coveted 120 power scroll.
  • As you ascend to the second tier, brace yourselves for an even greater treat - two extra scrolls!
  • And for those skilled enough to conquer the first tier, the rewards will be nothing short of extraordinary for extraordinary teamwork, as you'll receive three additional scrolls!
Regardless of the tier, all bonus scrolls will roll at the same rates, leveling the playing field and ensuring that each adventurer has an equal chance to secure extraordinary rewards. With this change, the market will flourish with better scrolls bringing some of the inflated prices in par with actual player income, encouraging groups to challenge themselves to beating timed challenges, and working together to organize groups to conquer the harder and less utilized Champion Spawns.

To avoid exploitation, the bonus scroll time window is based on the progress made - if 50% of the spawn remains, the time window is smaller, with 50% of the total time remaining when all players have achieved that champion’s required damage to the spawn. This tweak ensures that your efforts align with the time spent, adding a strategic element to your encounters and heightening the suspense as you strive for victory. (Call in your friends early and often!)

Our ultimate objective with this revamped Champion Spawn system is simple: to complete the spawns as quickly as possible, securing your place among the top-tier champions, as a team, and reaping the bountiful rewards. Group play becomes more crucial than ever before, as more participants make the path to triumph smoother and more attainable.

We've also taken steps to address any concerns about Champion sniping on our PvE server. To ensure fairness, players who contribute no damage during the spawn and only arrive for the boss fight will not be rewarded with any scrolls. It's time to prove your worth and demonstrate your dedication to the thrill of the entire Champion encounter, not just the “reward period”.

And we have an additional feature to enhance your champion hunting experience: the Champion Finder! No more tedious runebook hopping or guesswork about active spawns. Located in New Magincia on the Felucca Side(or for purchase in your home on the Magincia Essential Vendor), this powerful tool provides instant access to information about active spawns and which spawns have bonuses enables, enabling you to strategize and plan your adventures more efficiently. Say goodbye to wasted time and hello to seamless Champion hunting!

Gear up, rally your allies, and prepare! The new Champion Spawn system awaits you. Embrace the challenge, rise to the occasion, and become the champions you were born to be!

  • Solo players receive 6 baseline scrolls at current drop rates, unaffected by the change. (this means at tier 3 you will receive a better drop chance of 120's and 1 extra scroll!)
  • Three tiers of rewards with a higher chance of 120 and 115 scrolls: 3rd tier receives 1 extra scroll, 2nd tier gets 2 extra scrolls, and 1st tier gets 3 extra scrolls.
  • When 2+ players participate, each receives 4 guaranteed scrolls plus tier bonuses.
  • Bonus scrolls roll at the same rates regardless of tier.
  • The spawn timer is advanced based on the remaining spawn percentage when multiple people participate.
  • The goal is to complete spawns quickly to achieve top-tier status and obtain more scrolls with better roll chances.
  • Group play is encouraged as it makes achieving top-tier status much easier.
    • If you join in an actual party you can heal, damage, or face tank, and the damage will still be distributed equally to all members to ensure everyone in the party is getting the points. You will want to all be doing damage as this still is a champ spawn, but if you are a bard enhancing the damage of your friend, you will not lose out on contribution points while in a party!"
  • You are no longer required to sit around the altar for the boss to “pop” as your spawn clearing abilities are weighted heavier and ultimately determine your tier.
  • You are not fighting to place higher than other players, you are all working together to beat the timers and everyone participating is automatically put into a “group”(this is not a party) that determines the overall contribution outcome.
  • No scrolls are rewarded if no damage is done during the spawn, reducing sniping on a PvE servers.
  • Champion Spawn Finder has been added and enhanced for use at the exchange or in your home!
  • The Bonus Tier champs will rotate, starting with the OG champs: Abyss, Deceit, Destard, Despise, Fire.

And that about sums up the basic summary of Champion Spawns and Powerscrolls on UOAlive and the QoL additions we have made for players!
