    I love them too, but good grief lift the "item limit 1" hindrance. You guys would make a quick fortune if it weren't for this.

    Yeah they just lost $45 bucks. I was looking to put a zero behind the item quantity 1 on Legacy Tokens.

    It's mindblowing...

    I'm not saying they shouldn't improve the system, but it's not bad doing one at a time. With my credit card info saved, it's just a click through and copy and paste the code, about 30 seconds per item.

    They may get some more money out of me yet.

    It's hard to pass up on $5 Soulstones, and Transfer Tokens at half price at $10.

    Plus we're supporting the game we love by making purchases via the UOgamestore.

    Wouldn't it be kind of neat if this kind of a sale was advertised on uo.com, @Mesanna?

    Yes but too many purchases like that and my bank sends out an alert thinking its fraud..just a pita and no reason to have a quantity drop down menu that only has a 1 in it.

    I'm thinking about buying the Rustic Theme pack finally so I can use Raised Garden Beds.

    Do the beds produce Seeds of Renewal at a similar rate that normal plant raising does?

    From what I know, yes, they do. I usually get around 70+ seeds of renewal from the 24 3x3 raised beds I have every complete growth cycle.

    It ends on the 22nd.
    Origin is doing this to compete with Steam Summer Sale.

    Not relevant to OP, but ... 24 beds?
    One bed = 9 plants
    24 beds (x9 plants) = 216 plants
    6 clicks per plant with Pinco's "gather seed" gump (includes setting plants to decorative to clear bed for next planting)
    216 plants x 6 clicks = 1296 clicks
    This doesn't count throwing away all the decorative plants or the clicks to replant all those beds
    I have 7 plant beds and it's all I can stand, just can't imagine tending more than 3x that number
    Carry on

    Why bother setting them to decorative? Just empty the plot, less clicks. :p

    Has anyone ever given a good explanation to why we cannot make multiple purchases? @Mesanna @Bleak @Kyronix any good reason we cannot?

    Because EA games can't understand why you would want more than one. Those who run the Origin store can't understand why you would want more than one... They mostly just deal with Game Time or actual Game purchases not Items in a game and NOT people who have multiple accounts and multiple copies of the same game... that they also can't comprehend. They simply can't understand why anyone would want to have more than one copy of a game. They don't understand having multiple accounts ... and most games they don't even have multiple characters... so they fail to understand that as well.... and many other "in-game" type items they have that aren't for UO are things a person can only have or use one of in the game... they don't understand that you can own and use 250 or more soulstones, or the bookcases, or anything for that matter.

    This makes them paranoid that you might try to buy multiple copies of something to somehow resell and manipulate prices and cheat someone or something... so they put this sort of crap in place so that you can't resell this stuff at regular price later.

    My guess... EA store is mostly geared toward console players. It would be suspicious if some one ordered 15 identical Fifas, war hero games or sportsball games.

    But thank you for letting me know because if there is one thing I always love it's paying 1/2 price for Mythic Tokens! Can't have too many!

    I just tried to pay with a credit card and it failed twice. I know there is plenty of credit available. I was planning on upgrading 2 accounts with several things while they were on sale, and now i am buying zero things.

    I didn't try to buy multiples or anything...started with one 7th char and storage, but it wouldn't let me. :(

    Argh! :pirate: @Mesanna @Bleak @Kyronix

    European store do not allow to select Kings Collection, it redirect to other items depending on country. Asked few friends from different European countries - nobody I know can't do it.

    I have applied both Rustic and Gothic packs and still can't craft some new furniture. It want Kings Collection :bdh:

    Did you guys pull the plug on the sale of UO items completely ? That link loads Battlefield, and typing UO or Ultima Online at the store pulls up NOTHING !!!

    Same for me!

    I had the page previously loaded while I was debating what to buy. But opening the items into a new tab gives me a 404 error.

    This was the legacy token page. https://www.origin.com/en-us/store/...ownload/addon/ultima-online-legacy-token-code

    I just went back to my 3 codes that I purchased yesterday, and yes I have my order number, and two of the 3 codes I purchased are working, but one is not. One code was entered immediately yesterday, for Stygian Abyss so I could wear some legendary items I had for that toon, but the forged tool purchase did not work...I realize it's $5 but $5 is $5. :frown2: The other code, High Seas, now says it has been applied to that account.



    OOPS. When I did the 6-5-5-5-5 conversion I made a mistake. Back to water for me :pint:
