    Hey everyone!

    I wanted to take a minute to put together a few changes I would love to see this year.

    1. Power scroll books! We have pink books, alacrity books, How about a book for all those pesky power scrolls? =)

    2. Bod books with reduced lock down count. As much as I love driving my neighbors crazy with all my 45 bod storage vendors... I think they might appreciate it if I could take them down lol.

    3. Revamp of peerless and champion loots! It would be nice to have shame style loot drop on the tuffest monsters in the game =) oh and... how about lvl 6 tmaps instead of level 5?

    4. House item search menu. Might be a little far fetched, but I know I have wasted countless hours looking through 50 chests finding that ONE item I miss placed somewhere lol.

    5. Revamp of skills.. Item ID, Taste ID, Camping, begging, herding, and forensic eval. I know forensic eval and begging have minor uses already. Trick or treating and gaining honesty. But I would like to see them have more useful purposes to where most of the player base would with to have them in some builds.

    6. More useful tame-ables!!!! Lets face it... seeing EVERYONE fighting with big bulky greater dragons is getting a little old and boring. *edit* OMG How about something like a furious rabbit!! little itty bitty rabbit with all the stats and control spots as a greater dragon!!! *screams*

    Well those are a few things I can think of. How about you guys?

    For 2014 i'd love to see:

    1. Finished vendor search
    2. High resolution artwork
    3. Something done with gold / in game currency making it easier to do large value trades easier and safer.
    4. Fix account management (I don't think the UO dev team can do much about this though sadly).

    PS...You can already bind power scrolls using a scroll binder. Unless you mean some other way of doing it?

    Yes I know you can bind them. I mean books to store them. Some people like to hang on to 110's and 115's without putting them in binders. After a while it can take up a lot of storage and a pain to organize.

    YES on the gold/currency fix also! Always having to have "brokers" around to do high value trades is annoying.

    Better starting equipment, a tutorial that explains the ropes on the EC and CC for new players and a proper low level dungeon at Haven Mine with three levels:
    Level 1 would old level 2 Despise with Ettins and lizard men.
    Level 2 would be old Shame level 2 with earth elementals, dull copper elementals and the odd water elemental or two to teach new players how to deal with casting monsters.
    Level 3 would be old Despise level 3, with ettins, trolls, ogres, ogre lords. But instead of the acid elemental and the titan, it would have two bosses with two different drop mechanics. One would drop arties for trade like the current minax arties. The other would have a chance to drop one of the arties they could buy with the points from the other one. The bosses area would allow for faster skill gain from 80 up to 100 skill.

    Arties for sale would be lesser version of the currently sought arties that compliment armour.
    Lesser tangle with 5 int, mr 1
    Lesser crimmy with 2 dex and 5 HPI
    Talisman with 5 HCI
    Talisman with 5 DCI
    Talisman with 5 SDI
    Full mage/mystic/necro spellbook with 10 SDI
    Nice selection of weapons

    And so on. Stuff that would be useful for a newcomer and that would also give them a sense of accomplishment for what they are doing.
    Which would in turn resulting in a larger attachment rate among newcomers...

    Right now we just give them a wood stick and toss them to the wolves. "If you survive, you are worthy to play our game" is what the current new player experience feels like, at least in my opinion.
    We tell them nothing, specially with the CC (which lacks even the barest bones of a tutorial that the EC gives) and toss them to the wolves...
