    I'm getting the unicorn too! I love it, and the wedding package is pretty neat!

    I thought we were getting the pet revamp this publish no? I read that somewhere, and looks like nothing for V-Day gifts this year :(

    Normally not one to complain, but I could do without every other holidays in UO but V-day!

    Will the wedding package come with a storage upgrade? That's a lot of stuff.

    Finally all that buzz is put to rest. I was tired of seeing thread after thread about it.

    So what are the details on Lasher? I grabbed one after getting the newsletter and I thought it was going to be an ethy, but when double clicked, it says it becomes a bonded pet (like those colored horse gifts we got awhile back, I imagine). How many control slots does it take and what are the stats like? Can you transfer them to other characters?

    By the way, I didn't realize Lasher was originally a horny unicorn from Ultima 7. I really need to get around to playing that!

    I have signed up to the newsletter multiple times and have still never received any newsletters!
    The new sizes of play window for the CC will make a big difference to a lot of players, that's really great news!
    I'm a bit disappointed that Dev time has been put into something like Wedding packages, I can't imagine many people will want a UO wedding nowadays, but of course I may be wrong...

    100 % agreed. Window size = awesome! Wedding package = :eek:

    However, we might underestimate the number of schmoozers in UO - my wife sold 10 (!) Lasher-statuettes this morning! I somehow get the feeling that Stratics attracts negative folks whereas the normal, average player out there likes what the devs are doing... Who cares for PVP, when you can have a rainbow-unicorn, an easter painting, a wedding package and bunnies, tons of bunnies!

    :gee:

    Nothing to criticize for me!

    Lasher seemingly does not have abilities, it does not cast spells, has resists in the mid 20s-mid 40s and wrestling, tactics, anatomy as skills. It looks really pretty, folks were very excited this morning when they used the statuette. The animation is very well done and I forgot about the control slots. You dont need taming for them. If I remember right, it had around 250 hitpoints or something. Forgot to take a screenshot.

    the unicorn was described as a 'vanity' pet - which to my mind means it's the same as the 16th anniversary horses and the Sakkhran Bird of Prey. Insta bond, horse stats mount.

    I'll admit, I've already purchased a Unicorn. I enjoyed reading the story behind it so I bought one. I'll ride it for awhile till I get bored of rezing it and go back to my ethy.

    CC new resolutions is a HUGE one for me. I really dislike the EC, and now this gives me all the more reason to hate it even more :)

    Should have said "There is a lot of buzz about our upcoming increased game window"...that would have at least been partially true.
    Hopefully this is a first step towards giving the CC some of the much desired features the EC has (insta suit switching, automatic mobile healthbars etc.)

    UO Store. You can buy sovereigns at the Origin Store and use them to get the Lasher in-game via the UO Store option on the help menu.

    I can't imagine the need for a wedding package. But whatever. Like the new resolutions, although I'm pretty happy with my current set up. I really did like the wine rack idea so that's something. Rainbow whatever that is, possibly the first time I've ever been motivated to get involved with PvP since the days before Trammel..

    @Kyronix does the screen resizing include a radar map revamp in the CC?

    It'd be helpful to resize that without having to use cartographer.

    Can lasher be locked down as a statue? I might be mildly interested in that. There's a lot of potential to annoy people with that. :p

    This wedding package thing, and the unicorn, were put in for a friends request, my opinion, but I still think it's true.

    Yahoo got hacked big time a couple of times. User names and passwords. You really should make a new password. My wife still gets a ton of messages about it not being secure even after a password change. My Blackberry hates Yahoo.

    Another Thing...
    So far I welcome the Windows Change for CC Users iam still asking myself why WE do need 2 clients?

    Basically Love the Old Style Feeling of the CC but I still will Play EC die to Features even if the Graphics are very questionable.

    Maybe in Order to make the Best out of the Situation bringing the nostalgy into the EC would Not be the wirst idea when a high res Update will not Happen.

    Then we finally could stop Supporting the Old Jingle and move in

    No I dont want to bash the CC Users.
    Id Love to see proper Graphics (cc) in my EC. With Old paperdoll better Art for hotbars backpack etc.
    Ofc with full Funktion. And maybe some of the EC effects for magic etc

    Because without the CC Users UO would shut down, that's why we need two clients. Sorry the FUGLY Graphics gives me Migraines.

    I normally disagree with you as usual but I have to say that you are right. The Graphics is dogpoop. I got Used to it for the functions and pinco.

    Some Parts of the graphic is not evil like the paperdoll even when its completely different I Linda like it partially

    But. Pinco is no longer usable as some issue which causes lag like hell

    I Start got get annoyed by the CC. More Bugs. Crashes and so on

    I know you can Set
    legacy Container and paperdoll but they Look crappy

    We don't need 2 clients as iam sure all CC Users would like to have the hotbar partybar and better Makro stuff.

    If the Mission critical Points of the CC User could be used in EC No one wants to Play that Old thingy. .
