    Hi all, I stopped playing about 5 years ago or so and felt like playing UO again but had a few questions:

    1. I made a trial account and checked out a few servers, went to the Luna bank (that's the new Brit bank right?) on them and they were all super quiet. Europa had like 4 players there at 6pm gmt on a friday night - is there a new hangout spot?

    2. How's pvp these days? as that's pretty much what I'm into. Are there any servers which are best? How's siege these days? Again, looked pretty quiet when I was wondering about with a trial acc yesterday! I don't know if I'm allowed to discuss them here but are the official servers dead for pvp? Would it better to go 'elsewhere'?

    3. Is it still generally magers vs dexxers as the two main fighting speccs? I see you can be other races now, does that play a big part? Are there any new skills worth picking up or are the old school ones still best?

    4. Any other important things I need to learn?!

    Edit:
    5. Are ethereal mounts still the as valuable as before? I would say they were almost required as they were so incredibly useful. Just wanted to check something else hasn't come along to replace them for :heart: year accounts.

    Thanks guys

    Welcome back but I can't answer any of your questions.


    You will get a variety of answers and usually the most populated shard is Atlantic.

    It be easier for me to make an origami out of plywood than answering about the PvP.

    Europa exactly at that time had a crafters event at Btitain bank, It was the first night but will be back every nigh from now. Its a try to get back some of the Britain forge feel from the past and all dedicated smiths can take part when they like, Lien Ragus of RAA will be there every time. It was nice to just meet and chat with the community, and get nostalgic for a bit!

    Welcome back
    I seem to remember that name?
    Unless I'm much mistaken you were the first to PK my Petra Fyde char when I first ventured into Fel with her?

    First of all, welcome back!
    It seems that Europa used to be your home shard and since I play on Europa I will try to answer your questions.
    Hopefully my reply can be of some help to you and will not scare you off too much! ;)

    Kind regards, Maleachi
