    Will the be advanced character tokens for the new classes ready to be purchased by Sept. 8th?

    Specifically: Will warrior be able to choose throwing? Will there be a Mystic token?

    Thanks

    I would love to see a mystic set up, but maybe at an increased price. Just now every man and his dog can buy an advanced character. Please raise the prices for these.

    Since it is required for mysticism spells along with eval int. Those three would have to be in the Mystic token.

    Using spells would be the only way that I could increase imbuing. I dont have the patience to craft over and over. My cook has the most crafting skill. 85!! My four year old miner is finally at 99 mining!

    If they're going to make tokens for the new skills. They should wait at least one year.

    sept 8th 2011, thats the earliest they should add SA skills to adv. token. you want new skills then ya gotta earn them.
    thats my philosophy. I could see them adding them in about a year since theyd make money off the tokens and thats all the heads of EA care about.

    I hope there won't be any tokens for the new classes of characters. I see that as a lazy way out.

    I hear yer pain on working a skill.......I really do. I just started another skill I haven't used in years, and it's taking forever, BUT...........I appreciate it more once achieved. UO has lost that, appreciation and patience.

    If you'll excuse me, I'm off to kill a scripter.

    The world has lost that. Instant gratification is needed in order for most people to keep interest. Welcome to the 21st century.

    People who want instant gratification wouldn't like online games then...
    People who want everything with no work should stick to single player games.

    (not really referring to people who use skill tokens)

    wow thx a lot that this was discussed just in time! i never thought about it could be possible that the tokens are useless for imbuing. its only 6hours ago that me and my guildmates ordered 13 of the tokens. but our luck is one saw this thread and i managed to delete the order in time. so now we wait until its stated if imbuing will be in or not. thx for making this thread.

    To be able to get the expansion out the door and on time this is one of the things we will have to discuss after launch.

    So let me get this straight ... you want a Mystic advanced character token for sale, but you want it to cost more, so that not everyone can afford it, only those with enough RL $$$?

    Talk about elitist! What next? Increased skill caps at $100 per point? Extra houses per account at $1,000 each? Increased control slots for tamers at $500 a pop?

    Why in the hell should something be made available and costs extra just so less people can afford it? I know, how about $200 for the SA expansion .. that way there will be fewer people able to use it?

    I thought I'd seen it all on UHall but this beggars belief!

    well every business out there should be looking at ways to increase their bottom line. but then again we have been asking for a lot of other things in the past that would make them some extra money. so I won't be surprised when nothing happens. after all some people can and would pay for extras if they were offerd. i think they should get rid of the advanced character tokens and just sell skill points that could be put into any skill I would want up to an including 120. People have been playing this game for 12 years and I for one would like to now and then rearange characters when I want but having to work the skills up again and over and over is just a pain in the but

    No one has any right to tell anyone they should play single player games. You can play UO single player as well. None of you have any right to tell anyone they cannot purchase a game code. No one has any right to say what should and should not be able to be purchased by a buyer. It is not your account, it is not your characters it is EAs. If the player can buy 80 points of skill on the launch then thats their choice not yours. It doesn't affect you so get over it.

    In closing no one should tell anyone what and what not to do. Or what to say and what not to say. So I guess I cannot say no one one has the right to tell someone how to do something.

    The end. Both sides are wrong and right.

    All I ask is that you all stop trying to dictate how each other play. Go live in a dictatorship because obviously thats what most of you want.

    (Again I was just asking you to do both of these things now that you have to.)

    I will say one thing. Way to totally make this guy look greedy. You just took everything he said and exploded it ten times over to prove your point. He didn't give you numbers. Where did you get these numbers? He never said an elitist group should only get it ( he just said everyone can afford them). Now your just spiting out crap. Using the Drama Scare tactic does not work with everyone. You sir need to bring it down. Perhaps Advanced character prices should be raised. Perhaps they should be lower. Thats up to EA/Mythic marketing. I can see you would not be good for EA/Mythic marketing team. Don't go and blow someone else post up to make it look bad. Shesh.

    And I thought I've seen it all on Uhall


    And yes I would love to buy a advanced character token for this skill please. Thank you. I am lazy and I don't care. Its my right to be a lazy UO players. I think its somewhere in the EA TOS saying I can be a lazy UO player and buy all my stuff from them.

    Exactly! And what he wants is them made more expensive so that NOT everyone can afford them. Thank you for helping prove my point :thumbsup:

    *Yawns* Talk about elitist! is what you wanted to fully prove. After you say that you come up with dramatic figures. That is not elitist. So if thats the only point you were proving then you just wrote abuncha trash to try to sound important. :danceb: and you are important.

    I really don't care what the TOS says, never really did, or ROC's for that matter...........everyone's entitled to an opinion, even the lazy people of this world. Figures, you singled out that word and not others, like appreciation.

    Not that it matters, self profession on ones character pretty much says alot about a person. That's why there's alot of diabetics out there.

    I feel, no advanced character tokens, make the players earn it. I'm going, only so as I don't have to pay the assanine prices they charge in luna.

    later, n have a good life.

    Well then it's a good thing no one is telling anyone what to do here since this thread is basically opinion on something that isn't even out (tokens for the new skills). :D

    Paying money for an unfinished char kind of sucks. I am busy in rl so how about this.

    Adept Template $30

    GM $100

    Legendary $200

    For you EA suits reading this, you would rake in a lot of $200 from those of us willing to get the new skills on release day. Or even better how about we get them a day early?

    Thanks for the advice, but I wont take it. The token would not give me instant gratification. The skills on the tokens are 70 - 85.

    There will be people who have that much in the new skills in a few days or less. After 4 years, my highest crafter is 86.

    My best warrior can not kill a greater dragon. My best tamer cant kill one or tame one.

    I started UO in Oct 1997. I have put in many many hours of "work" I would like to have a gargoyle that can kill things higher than mongbats.

    It will probably be a year before I can fight my way through most of the new areas. Ill never see medusa. I have never been good enough to fight a peerless.

    Please dont count me in the category of "instant gratification". Mark me as someone who really sucks at UO. I also suck at single player games.

    Mythic is losing out on a cash cow.
