    Shard Shields

    Without a doubt top choice Ethies because of how they changed the landscape of PvP.

    Runners up:
    • Shard Shields, Because who doesn't want to go afk for a year then come back to hundreds of free transfers.
    • Repair Bench, Easy repairing without having to load up another account is fantastic
    • Spellbook/Runebook straps, These honestly should be craftable with how useful they are. 
    • Auction safe, because who has the time to spam to buy/sell.
    • Crystal Portals are the most convenient way of traveling

    Really, most Vet rewards should be Vet exclusive for a year then become craftable/drops thereafter.

    Agreed on Ethy. Shard shields cap at holding 10. Disagree on the vet rewards. I do think they should have taken the free shard approach and made them monthly. Especially now that they poof at idocs.

    Tough.

    Commodity Deed box

    The portals

    Ethies 

    The Statues

    Shard shields

    The machines and benches

    Storage items


    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    It's true they do cap, but with enough shields even if they spill over it's still not hard to accumulate a lot of tokens over time. I'm absolutely on the low to middle of the curve and it would take me years doing a transfer a day to use up my tokens.

    Monthly would be good too, if not craftable/drops.

    probably the Verite robe / cloak set.  It would be nice if the dev's added some more colors to the robe and cloak sets.

    The Ethereal Mounts can be gotten from the UO so not as important

    As for rarity of rewards, I guess I disagree with the majority as I think they should be locked behind age locks, and not usable unless your account to claim them. If not completely account bound but I do accept the fact that with the limit on number we can pick trading would still be nice. So if you want a reward you have to earn it by putting in the years, with a couple exceptions you can have all the vet rewards day one.

    There are several really good vet rewards I like.

    My favorites:
    1. Ethy (llama) because it allows me to mount up without worrying about a mount HP.
    2. Second place for me is a tie between Davies locker & the garden shed.
    3. Shard shields
    Notable mention - Crafting stations.

    Least favorite would be statues and the robes/cloaks; I think mainly because the dev teams have beat these ideas to death for items that really don't do anything at a time where vet rewards go poof (from IDOCs)... they seem like a waste of a pick and a reward that shouldn't take development time away from other usable rewards.

    Agreed. Some people like the idea of being able to "buy account age" to be able to select vet rewards but I think they need to be earned through time. Allowing people to buy account age is basically another avenue of putting vet rewards in the UO store.

    So put vet rewards in the UO store, who cares?

    The people who make the game mechanics.  Does not matter what you or I care, an equal number will feel the opposite.

    Do you really think a new 5 year vets believes they will get shard shields?

    I wouldn't dare to peek into your jewelry box. They're guarding pretty fiercely.
