    Merlin is right.  It's not like they aren't already available.  Money is just going to the wrong people.  Shard shields can stay 10 year vet rewards and new players can't use them.

    I am at the point where anything and everything should be for sale in the Store.
    AMEN  Better UO gets it than a 3rd party

  • Eliminate shard transfers and economy with get better. It's a way to remove economy from slower shards. Never liked it or used it.  yes my accounts are of age too, just ruins the game.

    Or, as I prefer, makes it *a lot* cheaper, so even "low level" accounts can afford it more than occasionally and not only the "Trader Oligarchy" as is today, and you get the same result, plus, IMO, a lot of lively intercahange between Shards, that can, always IMO, only benefit the world of UO.

    If the customers can vote with their "feet", and not only the Trade Barons, the prices will have to go down.

    Well, if I understood well as the Forum registration functions (and anticipated apologies if I'm wrong), one UO ***Game Account*** (and NOT one person-specific Broadsword Main Account) registetred on the Forum equals to one vote. Do the math and the inferences by yourself... B) ;)

    I would do an ethereal serpentine dragon-mount-whatever that does not cost 300mil.

    Ill pay you 10$ Broadsword, no more, no less!

    That way, I can collect over time as I see fit. :p

    I don't understand why some people are still so dead set that they are better than someone else simply because they've played longer. I have not once, ever, played this game for anyone else but myself, but it has never once, bothered me that someone else had something that I had, regardless of how hard it was for me to get, or how long it took. I don't think I'm special, I just think some of you think you are.
    "When I bought my first computer I paid a couple of thousand bucks. I still hate the retailers for not making today's kids pay as much as I had to pay 10 years ago."

    But then UO made those people. No other game I know has such crazy entitled people, emailing the producer personally, demanding totally exclusive items and what not. And Broadsword still encourage it.

    I'm all in for adding vet rewards to the store (you a) either buy it or b) just get them as a gift for free for sticking with the game). But the note "Obviously the account would need to be of age to buy these items as to not flood the market" is destroying the whole point of it. So I rather voted NO.

    Personally I find that to have a reasonable certainty to receive a reply if you write to Mesanna or other people of Broadsword is one of the thing that makes UO absolutely unique. That, and the possibility to build personalize houses, and for both of them I'm grateful and try not to abuse these possibilities.
    But asking to change the Store rules is, IMO, not abusing it. I don't feel "entitled", I merely ask for something that could make my way of playing more enjoyable, and STS for all is the main one for me right now.
    Asking for, NOT demanding... B) :)
    Cheers

    So, anyone buying said items can use them like ethereal mounts without being the correct account age?

    Anybody can use any vet reward at any age except the Shard Shields

    Hmmm... please indicate a VR that not all age accounts can use, beside the STS...

    For example...
    Ethereal Mounts if the account is not of age...
    Some dye tubs if the account is not age...
    House add-ons cant be placed if the account is not of age...

    That was changed quite a while back. Anyone may use a transferable reward at any age now.  The only items which can't be use by anyone are the shields and soulstones.

    Exactly. UOGuide still gives the "age lock" on USING the VR, but today it is untrue. STS and "installed" SS cannot be used by chars form other accounts because they are ACCOUNT locked, NOT age locked, and, in the case of STS, (unfairly, IMO, as I already said.. :) ) only obtainable ***directly*** Account locked (FWIK, at least...) at the 15 years mark...

    As I said, the problem is that UOGuide still gives ALL the VR, even the transferable ones, as "age locked"... :|
