Question about vet rewards

Discussion in 'UO Players Corner' started by Teeshy, Sep 6, 2008.

    Seeing all the lovely new things they've added brought this up - in about a month my acount will be 2 years old.

    When it switches over, do I just get 1 vet reward pick? Or 4? I read the UO.com page, and understood it to mean I would just get 1, but then I see people talking about using "one of their picks" so though maybe each year you get the previous years amount +1? (so for me would be 4?)

    Thinking on it, it made sense that I would get the previous years amount +1 - cos just a single pick for an entire year's subscription seems a bit "cheap", if you're going to give people 3 picks for just the first year =)

    If it's just 1 I'm going to be bummed, cos I've got my hopes up now that it's 4 ;)

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    from the All-Seeing, All-Knowing Knowledge Base:

    The amount of rewards an account gets goes like this.

    * When an Ultima Online account has been active for a total of 12 months you may pick a total of three choices from the 1st year rewards list.
    * When the account has been active for 24 months you receive an additional choice. This choice or any remaining from a previous year may be chosen from the 2nd year rewards list.
    * When the account has been active for 36 months you receive an additional choice. This choice or any remaining from a previous year may be chosen from the 3rd year rewards list.
    * When the account has been active for 48 months you receive an additional choice. This choice or any remaining from a previous year may be chosen from the 4th year rewards list.
    * When the account has been active for 60 months you receive an additional choice. This choice or any remaining from a previous year may be chosen from the 5th year rewards list.
    * When an account has been active for 72 months you will receive two vet reward choices (instead of the normal one choice per year), and another two for each additional 12 months which the account remains active.
    Your reward choices may be selected from any of the existing vet rewards lists found in this knowledge base. If you want you can check your account age by logging one of your character into the game and doing the following:

    1. Double-click your profile scroll.
    2. Scroll to the bottom of the scroll window.
    3. A horizontal bar will be at the bottom of the profile text. Your account age in months will be displayed under that line.

    Reward eligibility is determined on a per-account basis. Multiple accounts may not be "combined" to increase eligibility. It is normal and intended for your account age to show up to 2 months older than it really is. This is a bonus added to all players just for playing Ultima Online! If you feel that your account age is incorrect we encourage you to use the Contact Us option available here in the knowledge base, Gamemasters do not have access to this information in game but our email support staff will be more then happy to help you verify your account age if you believe there is a large discrepancy error in your account age.

    the most likely reason you'll see people talking about "picks" rather than "a pick" is that they elected to not use their rewards in previous years ~ you do have the option of ignoring the gump and not selecting anything

    I know a guy who has about a dozen saved up..... am I jealous? you betcha! :D

    Aww bummer! And thankyou for the confirmation.

    I read it the first time that I would only get one pick, but that DOES seem "cheap" since I got three picks the first year (I mean, as a 2nd year "vet" I woulda thought I would get more than a 1st year =P) And then seeing people mention multiple picks, thought I did read it wrong.

    Bummer that I didn't! (dunno how people can NOT use thier picks! Mine went on soulstones =P)

    Now I need to think hard to choose between a dress (wish I could trade my ugly cloak in for one!) or the commodity deed box.
     
  4. <laughs> I know what you mean. I thought I'd not taken my 4th year item but I had. Now I need to wait until March to get a deed box. Depending on how often you have to haul large resource quantities around, the box might be your best choice.
