Ethy Retouch Tool / Bug

    UO.com described this as "anyone can use it" but, alas, only 11 year old accounts are able to do so right now. Tried and tested :/

    If anyone is curious about what this does, I've tried it out on a few ethys. Pics aren't necessary. The ethy horse becomes a palomino, the ostard becomes a solid desert ostard, and the cu becomes a plain normal white cu. Kind of fun, but I was hoping the ostards would come in colors hehehe. Great for an RPer!

    You can tell if your ethy, or one you may want to buy off a a player/vendor, has been hit with this paintbrush tool because ethy's now have a description bar that says "transparent" if its a shadowy classic ethy or "Normal" if it's become solid art from this tool.


    Thanks to Jade for experimenting with me with this nifty new gadget!

    I think they meant anyone can ride a retouched mount. The tool is like a Weapon Engraver, you need to be old enough to use it.

    Can we please get an official word here? Where is the error - in the herold text or in the tool itself?

    Sounds like a bug. :-/

    Anyone have pix of a touched-up charger? On an unrelated note, anyone available to touch-up a charger on Europa? :lol:

    I really hope they keep it that way honestly I thought it was really cheep at least for the one item other then an ethy or clothes which i don't care about that I could claim it and just any one could use it. Whats the point in keeping my account open that long if I can just let someone else do so for me and claim what I want for me? Am I the only one who feels this way?

    Any word on this? I know my one account cannot use this tool either.
  7. You posted about the Ethy mount tool being able to use it on any character. But my 5th year character can’t use it. Why is that?
    It is currently a bug that only 11th year players are able to use the retouching tool. It is meant to only be claimable by 11th year but usable by everyone. This will be fixed in an upcoming publish

    Ive seen a touched charger, it is possible, I mistook it for an ethy horse until the rider corrected me.
