Brand New to UO!
Hi there UO community!
I was a wee teenager when UO released in 1997 and always wanted to join the party but have not been able to really do so until now, 20 years later and thoroughly sick of the on-rails theme park MMOs derived from the EQ model. I have logged in a few times into UO over the years but was immediately struck dumb and lost by both the lack of in-game hand holding of new players and the complexity of the game.
But now with Endless Journeys on the horizon I feel like now is a good time to come back to the game. I am now subscribed and plan to stay subscribed as long as the Broadsword office lights and servers are on.
UO still is a daunting experience for any new player. It really is challenging knowing what to do and how to get started as a new player. So to help out people like myself I plan to document my experience through a series of posts and video guides that will hopefully make it easier for new players to get into the unmatched simulation experience that is Ultima Online.
And I plan to do so from scratch with absolutely no assistance from the veteran community. Here are my self imposed following rules:
1) Accept no gold gifts
2) Accept no item gifts
3) Learn how to harvest / craft everything on my own
4) See how far I can get and how long it takes me to catch up with established players for PvE / PvM
After learning the ropes on Atlantic, I plan to move over to Siege and make that shard my permanent home. Wish me luck!
