    If you have multiple accounts and are planning on buying the new theme packs, could someone do some experimentation?

    1) only upgrade one of your accounts
    2) get/craft the new items in the packs (garden bed, distillery, rustic bench, ritual table, advanced training dummy etc.)
    3) test the following with your non-upgraded account:
    a) can the non-upgraded account receive the new items in trade?
    b) can the non-upgraded account place the items in their house?
    c) can the non-upgraded account use the items once placed?

    Thank you to any brave soul willing to perform this experiment

    What do you mean with "non-upgrade"?
    An account that doesn't buyed the theme pack?
    Any other pack sold by EA is usable by every account ( items can also be sold). I also hope this
    But me too am curious :)
    I'm interested in one pack and I'd like to know the same things of Barok.
    Thanks :)
     
  3. Ok so I tested this with a friend who hasnt purchased any of the packs........

    the statues and hedge things can be used by anyone...
    the ritual table and benches can also be placed by anyone

    you need the rustic pack to place the distillery, so I'm guessing you need it to also use it.

    you need the gothic pack to use the training dummy, my friend tried to click it and it wouldnt let her use it.

    the garden bed and chest say that the packs are also required.

    This makes the advanced training dummy completely pointless.

    Thanks to those who have contributed so far to this thread...

    Could someone check the Chest please? Can a character on a non-upgraded account use it?

    Thanks!

    I have to agree about the advanced training dummy. By all means, make it so the upgrade is required to place it but you have to understand that most of these upgraded accounts are already fully trained up. This would be a great item for new players or new accounts to use, but other than that, there really is no use for it.

    I said it before elsewhere. This particular release is more in line with items you can already get on UOGameCodes. The charged house teleporter costs $10, so this is like that but with more items. We already had easter content and it looks like there's a Zhah storyline on the horizon so these sorts of posts, in my opinion, are unfounded.

    I am very interested in whether non upgraded accounts can use the distillery or not; if anyone finds out please post.

    Can the non-upgraded accounts trade with magincia bazar vendors?

    Yes.

    They can also get yeast from orcs for the brewing.
