    ok I am looking to reactivate my old account and see what if anything still exists.

    I have an email sent to tech support to get my account password reset. But I will need to download the newest 2d client and purchase a gametime code.

    I downloaded a client last night but that was for Mordains Legacy....I know there are more recent ones then that

    can anyone give me directions links etc...that would be greatly appreciated.

    The download is on www.UO.com and should be the most recent.

    Not sure if I could do that Azmodanb.... I am already pretty bummed... I believe I lost 7 full soul stones and 8 or 9 fragments all with skills on them. once I get my account open it will be interesting to see what I have left.

    Thanks for the help last night Mare. I didn't find any soul stones with my character names on them. I really hope someone at ea can hook me up with a password today. I don't understand how there can be that many unknown stones and frags with skills on them....I though once you put a skill on it, it was locked to your account.

    The one on UO.com is the most "recent" one and then you'll just have to take the time and patch. I wouldn't DL the client from any other site except UO.com; never know it might have been tampered with god knows what.

    I have to say this system is seriously broken... poor customer experience, poor problem ownership. Spoken with EA twice and the web based support 3 times and no closer to a solution. On top of all this the system is unnecessarily confusing and complicated. Resetting a password for any other game or account of any type is typically a 10 minute job. the assumption I draw is that EA doesn't want returning players Now I understand I own part of all this....but seriously either UO has grown so small no one cares about it....or the system is seriously broken and no one cares to fix it. Even the last Lady from EA said.... oh you need to deal with EA/mythic not EA...they do weird things over there. ...sad and confused!

    ya the first I heard of Broadsword was today on the phone. after three days I finally got an email today at 4 pm asking me a dozen questions about the account so that they can confirm ownership. With luck I gave them enough information.... hoping to hear back tomorrow.
