    It's not as good as the 50% one I feel cheated out of because I bought the game immediately before, but it was still pretty good. I got my girlfriend a new account $30, High Seas $15, and a Legacy Token $10 for $35.

    Doesn't apply to game time codes.

    TY for the heads up. No it is not the %50 off but $50 for $30 is not a bad deal. %60 better than %100 but not as good as %50.

    How can an order total $50 when each order is separate?

    The one REAL problem, as I see it, is not being able to buy multiple of the same one item in the same order.

    For example, say that what I am interested in are Legacy Tokens (for the Soulstones), in an order I can only order 1 TOPs and so, to qualify for the $ 20 discount I need to buy several other codes for things I am nost interested in......

    I am still amazed how the 1 item limitation on orders is still all there..... it is freaking UNBELIEVABLE to me how a seller wanting to sell items for a profit then limits such sales to 1 item only per order........ go figure........

    Ah Ok sounds like you can have several items in the same order, just not more than one of any one item?

    I'm not buying anything from that store ever again after that last fiasco.

    How long before they pull this sale/discount?

    The 14th is the last day. It looks like it was just this weekend for the sale.

    My guess is, this was a test to see how forgiving we all are after the previous fiasco. I didn't bite, and I wish no one else had either.

    Sorry, but I've made two purchases. One to setup up my girlfriends account with a High Seas and a Legacy Token and I got the Rustic, King, Gothic, 7th Char Slot + Storage addons for myself as a 2nd purchase.

    Well, that would have been a stellar thing to put word out on via social media. I wonder if I can take advantage tomorrow, Monday, the thirteenth.

    Aware. I know they have the channels, maybe they just don't have any skin in that game on anything listed prior to Broadsword.

    EA owns Origin and as far as I can tell UO/Broadsword has nothing to do with it. This is at the bottom of my bill
    Why UO has to provide codes for their items being sold in EA's store is beyond me. I do not know if EA even tells UO there is a sale or not. Your billing on your account goes to EA not Broadsword. EA pays Broadsword X amount of $$$$ to run UO an DAoC for them but they are still owned by EA. Now EA may or may not give Broadsword a percentage of the money they collect plus what they already pay them I do not know. DAoC time codes are also on Origin and I think they also moved over to the new account system so EA collects their money also. Unless EA tells Broadsword there is a sale then UO is in the dark and would find out about it the same way we do, by going to the store.

    Manage Account from UO web site takes you to "https://accounts.eamythic.com/" and on that page you find " Login with your EA or Mythic Master Account." and "© 2015 Electronic Arts Inc. All Rights Reserved" EA collects it all.

    My bankbox allows 150 items. If I buy the 7th character / extra storage option, does that boost my bankbox to 180 items?

    Um, OK so now I see the gripe about quantities. I want to buy 2 at $29.99, but I can only buy one. Since I can't get to $50, I can't take advantage of the sale.

    I know that is one of the biggest gripes about the store. I can understand a little because the cide is given right away and could you see someone doing max everything on a stolen credit card. Max 5 QTY maybe

    Yea, if you have all the expansions and boosters it's a bit hard to find enough to fill $50 and even then you don't want the stuff for even $30.

    EDIT: I will say though that if you have 5 skills you're dreading to train the mythic token is pretty good. And a Soulstone is always good.
