Notes from a long-time ex-player ..

    giving the Enhanced Client a go.

    First off, 3 things I can immediately think of:
    1] The client looks absolutely astounding, truly fantastic job with the art.
    2] The controls seem to flow more easily than before, though there is still the occasional jitter.
    3] WOW CUSTOMIZATION! Seriously, nice job fellas, VERY impressed with the ease of use.

    Only 1 gripe really, semi-long-standing, but once you're established, this doesn't impact you:
    1] Vendor restocking. Once your character is okay and has a semi-surplus of stock, this will never again affect you. However, playing with the Trial Account, starting a Mage (UO has always had the funnest Mage - mechanically), I forgot what a pain it was to not have a 101% LRC suit (or for those of us from pre-AOS, over 60k each reg) and need to buy reagents. - I wouldn't mind seeing a price increase for the ability to be able to purchase reagents at any time, or for them to be done away with, or something. This is the *only* drawback that a new-player might face in the new Enhanced Client.

    - Eons ago, there was talk of having them add SDI, but not be required, how's that plan coming along? *hint hint wink wink yes please yes please*

    **Question to the Bards out there: I used to really enjoy this "class" before Barding Difficulty came along. No, not the need to have certain skill to bardables, but the timers. Are they still a 10/5/5 deal, or have they been lowered?


    ***A question regarding macros: Where did the OpenDoor macro go?
