    OK first off I am an idiot. Now that that is out of the way. A few questions. What tokens are usable on siege? I only ask because I tried to use one and it said that I could not use it on that shard. Now I have a nice token to remember my stupidity. I doubt I can get a refund or transfer this to another shard but figured I would ask anyway. I should have know better but wanted to take the easy way.

    Call Mythic and get your money back, they falsely advertised that token, whether accidentally or not.

    Is it the advanced character token? If they wont refund your money dont get rid of it. They are talking about enabling them on Siege.

    So are there any other tokens or items that cannot be used in the siege rule set? And thanks for the responses, also it was the new Mythic character thing. I think that is what it is called. The help for the store is not very user freindly, it only takes you to a knowledge base and doesnt recognize the search for Ultima online. I can find no phone numbers or email listed for contact info. But hey they already have my money, lesson learned on my part.

    working on Siege are:
    name change token
    gender change token
    race change token

    not working on Siege:
    advanced character token (yet!)
    character transfer token

    additionally items brought from EA that are blessed on production shards are not blessed on Siege! You might want to use your Siege bless on it when buying/using them. [Siege bless = a single item on your char can be blessed for free. Click on your character and it's available in the menu that pops up]

    Thanks, Afterglow. I assumed the new Mythic character token would work, since it did not say anything about not working on siege. Guess thats what I get for assuming.

    Transfer tokens will never work. Siege is "hard wired" that way. We can never be able to copy characters to test...

    Ahh - to my knowledge you are the first to try this! Nice to know it does not work.
    Thanks for being the test animal!

    I had a problem with an item from the store as well. I don't think there is a number posted anywhere. I had to fill out a web form after which they sent me the phone support number. 1-866-543-5435.

    Hang on to it!!! Woooooo! The change is coming soon, can't you feel it. 2 houses for Siegers 2 toons per account and Mythic token functionality. I mean that's what i pieced together from different threads here on the Siege Forum, for whaty SP'ers are looking to get most.

    You are making more assumptions based on speculation than an Apple enthusiast does about the rumored iPhone "5".

    Lower your expectations and it will lessen your disappointment in case it doesn't happen.

    Oh, I didn't mean to make it sound like I thought that's for sure going to happen. I was just throwing out the top items it seems are on the lists of the noisiest wheels. So yeah, it's just Stratics = grain of salt.

    Easy to overlook this at first glance, but the patch notes say =
    "Removed the restriction for the Advanced Character Token and the Mythic Token on Siege."

    Not sure I like this, but in the end it's probably going to attract more folks to Siege.

    Dang - i didnt like the old advanced character tokens - now these new ones are even worse.
    (stone your skills to below 200 - get character token and voila - instant tamer or dexer imbuer or thief etc)
    Let the griefing begin.

    *bumps* Any testimonials to being able to use either token would be welcomed.

    I have successfully purchased and used a Mythic Character token on Siege Perilous
    (two so far, the latest yesterday in fact).

    While I have not purchased a new Advanced Character token from the EA store,
    I have successfully used Advanced Character tokens on Siege Perilous
    (the latest literally just ten minutes prior to posting this message).

    The Advanced Character tokens I have used on Siege Perilous (two since the publish making them useable)
    have come from tokens redeemed from boxed copies of Ultima Online "The Eighth Age".
    I had redeemed these tokens a few months back (prior to the publish that made them useable),
    and they have been sitting in my bank box since that time. These Advanced Char tokens worked for me.

    Thanks! There seem to be some few issues. I just would like a thread to go to that has positives that both tokens work. If it is not working for some we need to pin down the issues as to why.

    I bought the $20 Advanced Character Token yesterday and the code I was sent wouldn't work on Siege. I wound up using it on Chessie to get the Token to sell.

    I later in the day bought the $25 *Mythic* Advanced Character Token and it produced a Token when used on Siege. A second *Mythic* Token also worked.

    I've got two characters with 5 skills of 90 and 2 of 50 with the hand me downs of the earlier characters. Now to get the things needed to make a few lrc suits for the spellslinger.

    I too used a Mythic* Advanced Character Token to upgrade one of my house owner accounts to a useful template. There is an issue, when you copy the code, it add a space after the code. Just copy it to notes pad first and recopy it and it will work.

    I had for long time wanted to have a garg char with myst, so Crazy Elf is now a garg with a new name as the old name did not work for a garg.

    FYI TO CLARIFY:

    If you purchase a mythic token, THE CODE WORKS ON SIEGE
    If you purchase an ADVANCED CHARACTER TOKEN, IT DOES NOT WORK!!!

    IF you have an old advanced character token from the promo years ago THEY DO WORK

    We had this issue with a guildmate as well. The Advanced Character Token Code is BROKEN for Siege.

    But why would someone buy an advance char token from EA, when the Mystic token is better and cheaper?

    The Mythic Token is not cheaper.

    Mythic Token = $25
    Advanced Character = $20

    While it is a better bang for your buck to get the Mythic, some people like the pre-chosen templates better. I've used 1 of each.

    Wierd, you sure it's not:
    Mythic Token = $20
    Advanced Character = $25

    When I look at the page, I do get the price in danish mint, but it is:
    Mythic Token = Kr 139
    Advanced Character = Kr 159

    It used to be more. The advanced token used to be 29.99 and still was for a little while after the mythic was released. They lowered its price to 19.99 though.

    Probably better ask this before I get mugged. Are checks and commodity deeds still blessed and safe from theft or looting on Siege?

    Yes. Both are blessed.
