  • I do enjoy items that have character names on them like Whispering Roses - many people collect these
  • For all we know it could be related to EA's SSO API I really tried to hunt this issue down from a client perspective but every hint lead me down a dead-end. It's extremely troublesome knowing 65% of all web users are using Chrome and another 5% on E…
  • Pawain said: We need to stop bantering, this is a thread about the forum being not lively. It's not banter, we're both providing information to fix an issue.  An issue that directly contributes to the forum not being lively.  An issue that …
  • Pawain said: The most difficult things to fix are intermittent problems. Agreed, it is most interesting in your case. For me, it's the same every time. I first thought it was a cookie issue, then a timezone issue, but it doesn't look li…
  • Bro what?  No offense, none of that is acceptable. This is an official game message board and people are wondering why it's not getting posts. It's not getting posts because the site doesn't work properly.
  • The craziest thing about it - a potential customer's first experience of not being able to login to a forum means that most likely those people have turned away and it's extremely difficult to get them back. I truly don't understand why this isn't …
  • Pawain said: You have to refresh the page before you post.  Then you know you are logged in. My routine is log in.  Press F5.  Do that over and over as needed.  Also if you log in and don't do anything for a few minutes.  Then refresh and …
  • @Kyronix I don't know who to ping here but I just noticed something. Looking at the website in Edge, Chrome and Firefox right now. Both Chrome and Edge says my last post was at 6:15PM edited 6:26PM Firefox says my last post was 2:15PM edited 2:26PM …
  • Pawain said: I use chrome and am able to log in every day.  Just have to have a little patience.   Or use Firefox and not need patience.  Not sure what settings you're running or why you're having a difference experience. Chrome/Edge: I l…
  • Part of that problem is that people can't even sign into the forum unless they're using Firefox which is why I'm suggesting an alternative platform if they can't fix the one they're using. - Most web traffic comes from mobile (not Firefox) - Most PC…
  • There are many unofficial UO discord servers
  • I'd like to suggest a free alternative to Vanilla Forums (which is what I believe this is running on) Discourse - https://www.discourse.org/ (support costs money) https://github.com/discourse/discourse (free) Then you can also setup integration be…

  • Mushroom Cultivator's Apron - +Alchemy - a skill you can't get on jewels.- 15% EP - allowing 35% EP jewels to match up and meet the 50% cap.- No durability Can we get another event with this item please?  Ty
  • ForeverFun said: I'd imagine the QoL functionality most seek is already part of EC.  EC main complaint is the lack of CC graphics option.  It hardly seems rocket science to provide that to EC;  in fact, I think some of the recent artwork like…
  • loop said: The game would suffer a lot by the loss of automation in contexts outside of PVP. Just wanted to add some context... When I speak of automation I'm not talking about macros, I'm talking about automated actions with no player inte…
  • Cookie said: The worst part of PVP in the last 10 years is script automation and giving mages an AOE dismount isn't going to fix that. I'm running around PVPing with people who don't even have buttons for potions because it's taken care …
  • ForeverFun said: Once upon a time, mere lich lords were feared. Power creep should work for monsters too, not just players, their equipment, and pets. Covetous Level 4 Lich Lords can be spooky
  • This video was supposedly contained on a CD that came with a magazine called Next Generation in April of 1998 (issue number 40) - https://archive.org/details/NextGeneration40Apr1998/mode/2up - I don't see any references in the magazine but that does…
  • AtomicBetty said: The sad thing is Evasion doesn't even need to be nerfed.  Skill Point increase needs to be nerfed.It's the same reason you can't buff ninjitsu skill point increase is to strong. 100% on the money my friend The crazy t…
  • A very simple solution to EJ bot detection is to run a periodic script that checks for if multiple EJ characters are within X, Y, Z of each other and alert a GM to investigate.  This is quite doable. By the way, I had to install Firefox at home jus…
  • Here's a discussion with a potential returning player who played from 97-04 struggling to work with the only storage option they have: I sit on the Ultima Online sub Reddit all day and talk to new/returning players weekly. I completely understand …
  • Oreogl said: Endless journey does enable cheating based on low risk high reward scripting This would be true if there was any risk to subscribed users scripting which there currently isn't so that statement is inaccurate. I don't underst…
  • I've helped several returning players come back to 'test the waters' using EJ - every single one of them ended up confused and disappointed with the EJ banking system. The tiered/gated way of handling item transactions through EJ banking is an excel…
  • Cookie said:If Parry is nerfed on mages, mages need to be given 400 odd mana pool to compensate, and actually have more mana than warriors, and be able to cast anything. Sounds great to me, in fact, give them infinite mana pool as long as mage/hybri…
    in New Mage ideas Comment by sibble May 25
  • Can you explain the scenario where you think an EQ-type spell that dismounts every one would be helpful to you? If you're 1v2 and you go on foot to attempt to dismount them both (yikes), spell goes off and they're both dismounted.  Then you're going…
  • Do I enjoy running around by myself on ATL so that when I run into my enemy who has several people the most common first action is for them to put me on foot so that they increase their chance of killing me? Of course not. I've always hated it, it's…
