Is it hard to buy Samurai Helm and Leggings of Ember?

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by returntosiege, Mar 25, 2012.

  1. I read that if I return to Siege they are required items in order not to be at a disadvantage while PvPing.

    Are they easy to buy?

    The only thing that used to make them an advantage was they were blessed. They aren't blessed anymore. So, they are not an advantage like they used to be.

    I would like to add. If you have any of the old school leggings or helms that were blessed once upon a time, these can be traded in at Brit Bank for a legacy token.

    Does that still work? I tried to trade in a helm and quiver a few months ago; didn't appear to be any context menu or effect by dragging the items on to the NPC. I assumed it was 'Carmela the 7AE trade in girl' and unless I'm doing something wrong, or indeed i may have the wrong NPC, the trade in does not seem to work.

    Indeed it still does. I just turned some in I found on the ground a few days ago. Either the items you have were never blessed or you did not hold yer mouth right. Try one more time before you give up.

    I'm baffled with this one, they won't exchange. Is it the right NPC? Just a simple drag n drop? :confused:

    I have x2 Samurai helms and x1 quiver of infinity that were claimed at the time for the sole reason that they were blessed. Although I didn't play Siege often back then (mainly due to my connection; was on ISDN at the time) they were the most logical items to take. Given that I ventured back on to Siege just before Xmas and finding them no longer blessed I threw them in the bank and thought no more of it.

    I won't lose a whole lot of sleep over it, but it would be nice to trade them in for some house deco items given that the original items lost their purpose.

    *shrug*

    If the helms were indeed blessed. they should turn over into legacy tokens. The quiver will just be a heritage token

    If they are the right kind that can be traded then all you need to do is approach the NPC at Brit bank and a window will pop up. No talking required. If it´s not the right kind then nothing will happen.

    It would seem something is not quite right, the items were claimed pre-2006 and were blessed. Only things that have changed were; the original claiming character was deleted when i started back end of last year and the items were temporarily siege blessed after the character trade.

    Either way, I have reported it as a bug and chucked the items back in the bank for the time being. The next we hear of it will be when they resurrect the X-Files as EA's reporting chain is fictional at best.

    Ok, think I may have found the issue after a degree of digging. The items were likely claimed under the guise of the 9th Anniversary Edition which gave choices from the 7th and 8th Anniversary which is where the Quiver of infinity falls into the bracket. This would also marry up with the year 2006 that i mentioned above. Detail here:

    Heritage Token - UOGuide, the Ultima Online encyclopedia

    Regardless of the year/edition, the items were initially blessed but seems I have been done over with a technicality. :(

    All my helms/leggs became tokens.
    Ive got alot of the Samurai Helm (with +20 LRC too) and some Ember Leggs... both unblessed for your infomation.
