Hi. I have been considering trying UO for a long time and I think it's finally time for that. I'm coming from such games like Anarchy Online (my very first MMO, I played it almost 3 years) and EVE Online (have been in game for a year and half now). I have tried several level based "theme park" games as well but they never appeal to me for long. Maybe because I want to rather Live in a World when playing a MMO than just slaughter NPCs and monsters on my left and right to get "phat loot". If I want to just kill some stuff I can always play some hack 'n slash game on my PS3. Coming from a PvP centric game like EVE Online I think I would like to start straight away on Siege Perilous. This is the only shard nowadays with FFA PvP ruleset if I'm correct? Which leads a second question... Where Siege's server is physically located, I would like to avoid too high pings when playing on PvP shard (I'm from Finland). I have researched the game a bit (I don't know anyone who is playing UO so I will be alone when starting) and I think I want to play a Thief. I used to steal and pirate in EVE too. Can you make a reasonable income as a Thief in this game, especially as a new player and on this shard? If there are any guilds who would have patience to guide a new guy a little and show him the ropes that would be wonderful. I like to play MMOs with other people anyways, soloing is for single player games. Thank you very much in advance.
