    I was really hoping that with the open beta they would let people with closed accounts play for free, however they didn't.

    I'm dying to know how the flying works for the gargs. Would someone enlighten me? Like, do you have control over the height? does it increase your run speed? screenshots?

    I'm hoping this will get me excited about UO again. If there is anything else that really stands out I would also love to know about it.

    If this is available on another thread that I failed to see, please link and close the thread ;)

    thanks in advance.

    Flying works basically the same as ethy mounts: you mount up (take off), whereupon you're able to move at mounted speed. The benefit of flying over riding is that flying doesn't fill a pet slot. No, you cannot adjust your height off the ground.

    I see no elevation, it wouldn't fill any pet slot.

    Interesting a lot better than my Hiryu which has cute butterfly wings but can't fly yet fill up space nice.

    Flying is also needed to reach certain places in the Underworld.

    Quick question, can gargoyles wear armor that humans wear? Or are they limited to their own armor?

    You can convert most armor/weapons to gargoyle armor. Except hats and gloves.
