Questions from an Old UO Player

    I used to play UO awhile back, I think I had Mondain's Legacy was the last expansion I played, I just remember there was spellweaving. I completely forgot pretty much everything about the game. So I have a few major newb questions that I need help with if anyone can help :)

    For one, I can't find out how much the game costs now lol. I've searched in the knowledge base and support areas on the UO site and all it tells me is how I can pay, but not how much it costs. So can anyone tell me how much it costs monthly?

    Second, am I required to buy the Stygian Abyss expansion (I think that's the most recent expansion?) in order to play? I remember buying the expansions but for the life of me I can't remember if it was required in order to play the game. If so, then each time they come out with an expansion I HAVE to buy it in order to play correct??

    Third, the whole account management thing has changed, looks like it's not under Origin anymore and I'm not sure if I got into my UO account. I put my account info (what I think it was) in to sign in and it shows my correct birthdate info without me entering it so I'm assuming it's the account I had from UO but it keeps talking about WAR and shows nothing about UO, I'm guessing WAR stands for Warhammer Online but I've never played it or any other EA online game. Is it still possible to regain accounts from 4-5 years ago? I may decide to just start over instead if it's gonna be a hassle.

    Finally, is it possible to play UO on dial-up anymore? Where I'm located I don't have another option yet but I remember playing UO on dial-up before but with all the new stuff I'm not sure if it's still possible.

    Major thanks to anyone who can help!

    first go to https://accounts.eamythic.com/ and create a master account using your email address as its name and make up a password, After that you can try and link you old account. your account name will need _UO after it.
    (xxxxxx_uo) and your password. a month suscription is 12.99 us plus tax 3 months or 6 months is cheaper per month and you can also buy game time codes at game store at uo.com. You might want to do a free 14 day account to see whats been going on if you can't get into your account right away. Some people are having problems with setting up there old accounts. Good Luck.

    The minimum expansion pack needed to play is the Mondain's Legacy. Luckily, once you activate your old account, it will automatically be upgraded to the Mondain's Legacy expansion pack for free, which includes that and every expansion pack prior to it.

    Once you get going again, you can upgrade your old account to Stygian Abyss for $20 it think. It's worth it in my opinion, but not needed. Or you can keep your account at the Mondain's Legacy expansion if you wish. That being said, nobody is forced to buy an expansion pack.

    You can use dail up for your internet connection. I think the minimum requirement is 56k.
     
  4. You should really buy the Stygian abyss pack
    its cheap and comes with a great new player token to help you with accelerated gains

    SA is one of the best new expansions and its becoming critical to use much of the new fun stuff dropping in shame. I would lay out the money for it.
