    Posted on the UO.JP site and translation yoinked! from Athos_UO

    EA Japan posted that they release the 11th anniversary items collection in Japan.

    [​IMG]

    - Fallen Log: You can sit down on it.

    [​IMG]

    - Earring of Protection: You can choose one from five colors, which means the +2% elemental resistance of the color. They are not blessed on Siege/Mugen.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    - Lamp Post: Double clicking on it turns on light. You can bring it in your backpack.

    [​IMG]

    - Hitching Post: You can stable your pets with this post 30 times when it is locked down. You can choose the access level of it. You can recharge it using a Hitching Rope on it.

    [​IMG]

    - Ancestral Gravestone: Using it raises your Spirit Speak skill temporarily. You can use it only when it is locked down.

    [​IMG]

    - Bulk Order Cover: This cover changes the color of BOB. You can choose from 11 colors. It has 30 charges and not rechargeable.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    - Wooden Bookcase: You can bring it in your backpack. It displays books on shelves with items in it. It displays empty shelves with no items in it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    From FAQs:

    Q: Can we obtain these items in game?
    A: They plan to allow us to get some of these items in game, though hues and/or functions will be different.

    Q: Can we buy each item individually?
    A: EA Japan will offer these items not so soon after the release of 11th anniversary items collection.

    They don't mention about the ways or possiblity for non-Japanese users to get this edition. There's no way for abroad users from Japan to buy this as long as I know, but I suppose UO team will offer these to you soon.

    No disks. Only items. It will be released on November, 13th.

    3577 Yen on amazon.co.jp(about 30$).

    *puts on poker face*

    Well ... you know ... the price for these should be set low, or even just given away ... don't know if there's anything there I'm interested in ...

    What? Too late?

    I cleaned up the middle section it was messed up. So its cleaner now. :mf_prop:
     
  9. Kind of irritating that they release the items to Japan and leave the rest of us hanging.

    Why do I get the feeling that the Japanese office have jumped the gun and published something before the agreed release date? Again?

    I think our EA cares because they havnt decided how to do gifts and something about some are free and some you have to buy... Perhaps they just like to try to make our EA look bad so they look good? ekek

    You've forgotten that an unauthorised promise from Japan stampeded KR into an earlier than intended release?

    Mmm. Pixels. I want! I want! And still waiting for the devs to make the original ToT dyes available to us again.
     
  19. Ok let me get this straight. EA Japan can create an implement the very book shelves we've been asking for for years and EA America can't? They even developed it with graphic changes as to have no books when its empty and filled with books with stored items. I sure hope we get those.

    I was wondering about the hitching rope too. I'm hoping it will be craftable.

    I really want the bookcases we have been asking for those forever now. :thumbup:

    I just don't really like the idea of stuff being 11 year rewards that isn't rechargable... like the armor inscription and the Bulk Order Book wrappers... 11 year rewards are such a "Long Term investment" you should continue to get the value... even if you can only use 1x day or recharge with x or something else... not rechargable doesn't work for me for a Vet Reward.
     
  26. It took me a minute to wipe up all of the drool so I could post this.

    I really, really hope they announce the details here soon.

    Looks nice on the surface, but to rain on everyone's parade, I *won't* be spending a vet reward on something that has 30 uses!?!?
    Play a year, to get a 30 use item? *shakes head*
    If they were readily rechargeable, as per the weapon engraver, quite likely. But *I* can't see burning a reward choice for a limited use consumable.

    Just my opinion ;)

    Edit: oh Duh, as has been pointed out, these are anny rewards, not vet. All clear then!!!

    I don't think these are vet rewards. They are an 11th anniversary collection set. Just like the 9th anni tokens we got.

    "Hitching Post: You can stable your pets with this post 30 times when it is locked down. You can choose the access level of it. You can recharge it using a Hitching Rope on it."

    I wonder if this will interact with the real stables or will it be separate thing...IE my dexxer has 2 stabled/bonded pets at Brit Stables (all he's allowed), I go home, Stable a 3rd bonded pet at my house (or maybe up to 30 more??) then, I ride off into the sunset on yet another...4th bonded pet.
    This would make for more stable slots that I've seen people whining about here on Stratics. If this is the answer to more stable slots, people better start getting OLD real quick.
    I've got 2 months to go until I'm eligible for my 11th year vet rewards, however, I find myself not needing more stable slots at this time. This would still be a nice reward to have for claiming my pets while at home though.
    Just read the "Vet Reward" -vs- "Anniversary item". Makes sense that this might be an 11th anni item, not a vet reward.

    Let's not get confused. There's a world of difference between '11th anniversary items' and '11 year veteran rewards'. Let's be clear what it is we're looking at. 7th anniversary was the sammi helms, leggings of embers etc. 8th and 9th were special edition boxes. 10th we got the heritage tokens that had been an early buyer item in 9th. This (I think) is 11th. Not the same thing at all as vet rewards.

    OH. As Aniversary Presents these are the Bomb!! People will love them and be trading to get more! If we get confirmation from Mythic that is...

    As Vet Rewards I only like a couple but as Presents these rock!

    ea america complaining? try being in europe!! we cant buy expansions etc in europe and we are completely forgotten in entirety.
    if ea tried to market in the uk they would pick up players but hey uo is like this in europe :stretcher:
    perhaps the honourable thing to do would be to close it down while people still have good memories of it rather than let it go downhill as it is now and becoming a joke that simply leech the cash of its players while it still can.

    Of course, my real question is, with things that you're spending actual money on, why would they implement something with limited charges that CANNOT be recharged? Like, 30 charges to change the colors of your Bulk Order Deed books? Why is that limited charge, and WHY would it not be more like a dye-tub or something? That's a utility thing that would help sorting BOD books, so of course, they offer a very limited thing for it.

    Also, the armor engraver? Why not have it recharge much like the weapon engraver? Why would I spend real money on something that is gone in 30 uses?

    The other stuff looks cool, but I'll be honest, it's BS that you have to BUY a bookshelf that changes settings when filled with items. That's how the EXISTING bookshelf should work.

    Basically, it comes to this: Rather than implement stuff into the game that people have been asking for, they're going to implement it with a price tag.

    Also, keep in mind, there isn't a Japanese development team (to my knowledge)... there's an EA Japan that asks Mythic to develop stuff for them, but all of the development resources come out of Mythic at present. Which means while we folks here in the U.S. get the shaft, again, the Japanese get development time spent for promotions that we don't benefit from.

    Clearly we know where the larger playerbase is.

    *drops jaw* Those are awesome. I really hope they extend it to the US shards.

    Although I won't pay $30 rl for items only honestly. They should give a choice to each account as a thank you for being with the game.

    Ok so as i understand no matter what shard you play on we all pay for playing the game. So why are they getting developement that i dont? And what developement have we gotten that they dont?

    I'll have a post up shortly with the details of this promotion and how it applies to the rest of the regions - it will be similar to last year's Anniversary promotion.

    I'm glad I'm taking Japanese 101 this quarter, maybe I should move to a Japanese shard.

    What was last years promotion? Didn't we just get heritage tokens, and the dungeon drops?

    I may have forgot something. :)

    Unless I missed something, wasn't last year's promotion Japan-only, and we were pretty much left out? Or did I miss something here?

    Last year we all got heritage tokens..remember? And if you bought the box, you got 10 tokens or something like that
