anyone happen to play on this free shard? downloading game now and should be on within the hour.
learned a bit today in game and even got hooked up with a full spell book, rune book, and ethreal horse which supposedly you can only get if you donate $10 or play for 90 days. Got the $10 one and even getting a house tomorrow. I can't wait!
I would give it a go if the client download link worked.
Be sure to scout out where you want to put the house. Make sure that no big ass monsters spawn there. When I had a house in UO years ago we didn't look to hard and it was where this big fucking dragon spawned. And every now and then one of my guild mates would get chased to the house... then the dragon would come into the house... then would kill anyone in the house
I think that should work. I forgot what site I went to at first to download the gameitself, but it did link me to fileplanet where I had to wait half an hour just to download it. Any english UO client should work I'm sure.
UO Gamers: Hybrid is the shard I play on. Found this in the Cabal thread again.
I have to remember to do that. Some houses seem to be in the middle of no where or along some shoreline far far away. But I guess it doesn't matter since it seems you can set like a warp point to get there easily?
Got class and hopefully by the time I get back home, that other guy is on Can't wait to get my house!
Yeah you can set a rune stone that will teleport you to your front door whenever you want. I think you can actually set it so that you will teleport right inside your house.
But it is usually a good idea to try and put it somewhere that other players will pass it often because then you can set up your npcs to sell stuff (like mounts) and it'll make money for you. If you are off on some island then you won't have nearly as many people run past you.
Oh okay I think I've seen some people vending stuff before. It looked kind of confusing at first as there was just a bunch of people standing around. You can't stall in town or something? I'd like to set my house somewhere near Britania (biggest town I think and main?) so I would get more flow of people.
Fucking had house guards or something attack me once while running past. Luckily I made it out alive. Shit chased me forever.
so when are you and cyrkle going to join me? I really need to get back into playing Cabal again, but I'm all excited about my house.
I notice that there are a lot of commands you have to memorize like releasing your pet and such. Oh yeah I'm a mage/tamer in hopes to make some money. Stuff like "bank" and "balance" when you're at your bank. Just a lot of little things I still have to learn.
I'm going to be in Cancun for a week as of Saturday so if I join you it won't be till I get back. Cyrkle could probably be easily swayed if you talk to him about how much fun you are having in Cabal though
You mean how much fun I'm having in UO? I was talking to him on and off yesterday and he was giving me some tips while I was afk skilling in Cabal. Was tabbing between UO and Cabal to talk to him
Yeah that is what I meant, that would be the only way you could talk to him since he refuses to actually post here on OT
i played on Elysia for a long time
elysia is a free server, its got a lot of events. . . .but in terms of population, defiance is pretty good.
yeah defiance seems like a decently populated shard, kind of like hybrid I heard. I'm on Hybrid though because I heard it's pre-trammel when it was still skill > gear.
Jumping on now!
so are you liking this game more now?
ill join in!
i play on hybrid. i might sign on sometime.
I am, although there is still such much I have to learn about. There doesn't seem to be actual levels in this game? I've heard something about being only to max 7 skills? not sure how stats work or what they are even for. Just stuff like that I need to figure out and I can't seem to find a super newbie guide on these things.
is there any way to whisper in game? I've been contacting other people in game using AIM.
i forget how, but you can.
let me know when you get on. Show me around or something Not on right now, but can get on whenever.
If you see someone in town killing, that may be me.
What's your in-game name so I don't whack you.
