Hail Siege!

It's been a minute and I reupped recently and have been playing on ATL with an old friend and guildly who is taking advantage of EJ.  We met initially on Siege and have been considering potentially splitting our time between the shards and am curious if changes have been made to Siege?

For example, is pet training implemented there?
Recently Ended Invasion Spellbooks still a thing?
Can you CBD items such as Hawkwind's Robe, Minax Sandals, Hunter's Headdress/etc?

What's the population like?  Are vendor's profitable for gear?

I assume housing is readily available?

Anything else you think I should know?

Thanks,
-H

    Similar questions were recently answered by people more knowledgeable than I here: https://community.stratics.com/threads/thinking-of-returning-to-uo-and-thinking-about-playing-on-siege.420234/#post-3071358.

    For example, is pet training implemented there?  Yes.  The full system is here.

    Recently Ended Invasion Spellbooks still a thing?  Invasion spell books exist and are blessed.  I believe the prices came down a bit after the recent invasion.

    Can you CBD items such as Hawkwind's Robe, Minax Sandals, Hunter's Headdress/etc?  Players on Siege can bless 1 item with a "Siege Bless".  See "The Siege Bless" here: https://uo.com/wiki/ultima-online-wiki/gameplay/siege-perilous/.

    What's the population like?  Are vendor's profitable for gear?  I think the population is good.  You'll probably have to join a guild to find people to play with.

    I assume housing is readily available?  Yes.

    Just one further point, you asked about clothing bless deeds, while the items you mentioned are clothing, they have magic item properties, and so can not be blessed by the deeds. Clothing bless deeds can only be used on items with no properties on Siege.
  • Thanks, I thought I recalled that had 'greater than normal' properties [Gypsy Headdress back in my hey-day] could not be blessed by a CBD but I couldn't recall if that was still the case or not.

    Thanks for the replies, pretty much confirms it's how I remember, but with the pet training.  I'm sure we'll see some of you around!
