    Just popped to the Origin store to buy a few items and noticed that loads of the UO stuff is on sale at the moment (at least in the UK) so just a heads up :)

    Well that sucks. Evey time I try and add items to my cart it just tells me:

    It's pretty cool that they are having all these sales. Try using a different browser.

    It's more like here we go again after the debacle where the Origin store "ran out of codes" and didn't put out new ones till the sale was over (they sat on new codes for at least 3 days). The fact that it can continuously be painfully hard to give a megacorporation like EA fistfuls of cash for items that are pure profit... You either throw your arms up in despair, or find the humor in it.

    It's working for me now. They probably had some issue with the store, possibly too many people buying games?

    any way to tell what expansions or additions you have on accounts? I have 4 and might want to enable some things. I will do some checking but hoping for a short cut so I spend a long time doing this.

    Found it under features. on the account management page

    Aaaaand the Mythic token I bought disappeared from my pack when I logged out. Paged a GM and got a canned "can't replace lost items" email. Unbelievable. They really, really don't want our money.

    Purchased from the store. I got it, logged out for a bit, came back, and it was gone.

    WOW Could it have gone into your bank or hidden in your pack. This totally sucks. Glad I saw this before I claimed my stuff.

    I don't wonder about that, as with the new floor and wall granit tiles being dye able with them, they will sell well to full price :devil:

    Sometimes if your buying gametime codes you have to wait a while. Its like they sell the code without actually having one, then they have to get one from UO and then send it to you.

    Most likely, yes. My purchases at the Origin store here in Brazil take a whole lot of time to process, often between 2 and 24 hours.

    There are some items missing in the UO items in the US but there is a way to find them. At the top of the page in the SEARCH type in ULTIMA a dropdown will appear and at the bottom you (hopefully) will see ULTIMA Franchise, click on it or dust hit enter with ULTIMA and there will be more items, some are not Ultima related.

    Just FYI for y'all but the site has a countdown timer now to the end of the sale. 1 day 5 hours from now it will be all over again.
