    Nvm since I can read a little bit of Japanese... here's a little piece of the info with the items

    Japanese shards get 4 new items from UOGamecodes.
    1. Earring for vendor. 5% discount on vendor fee for 90 days.
    2. Earring for vendor. 10% discount on vendor fee for 40 days.
    3. Smuggler's edge that increase stealing chance.
    4. Undertaker's staff. With limited charges that teleports your corpse to you for a safe corpse recovery.

    I think that's about it. All 4 of them are about $5

    I dont agree with selling them either with no way of aquiring them in game via quests or something.

    If it was just deco then I'd prob not ***** too much but these items have useful properties.

    Why would Japan get stuff we don't? In what reality is this good business? Have they been subscribers for 12 years? I'm not even mad because someone will bring it over here & I will get it. It's just a bad way to do business.

    At $6 I'm sure they'll make their way across all the shards, However I would like to know if EA is planning on getting these sold for everyone else!

    I AM SO MAD. i thought these items would be obtainable through quest means in the game, but now i find we have to pay for them? and on top of that, they aren't even available in america???

    i pay my 15 bux a month, but that's not good enough eh? EA and UO are a bunch of greedy bastards. this makes me so upset.

    Are the lanterns and that gray thing deco only or do they serve a purpose?
     
  19. altarego

    altarego Guest

    I did a good bit of testing with these items.

    The undertaker staff works through walls and over rocks. The only limitation seems to be distance and server lines. Oh, and it's only got 100 charges.

    The smuggler's edge is dependent on your stealing and snooping skills (i.e. it's not an increased chance). But it's completely passive. Just swing and every successful hit gives you a chance to snoop and steal a random item from a pack (monster's only).

    The earings work as advertised.

    I put one on my Mele toon and he is stealing items with 0 stealing/snooping skill. Mostly gold which is a little disappointing.

    They damn well need to ****ing stop giving just them new stuff like this. And don't give me that crap about us getting more than them... patches and publishes work for the entire globe, and they already have much better event and volunteer staff support than we do.

    To hell with Asian customs and nicities... its an American game and its about damn time they learn to deal with that fact.
     
  22. altarego

    altarego Guest

    Of course, the minimal chance is there, but that's probably the reason you're only getting gold. It has the same limitations of the stealing skill i.e. you aren't gonna be stealing logs or full chests, etc.

    Also, I should note that you will actually gain skill if you have skill pts available and set either skill to raise.

    I didn't have time to test to see if it successfully stole special potions or balms or other rare stealables.

    Lanterns are SC, deco only.

    The smuggler's tools gives lockpicks every time you use and it recharges like the Cornucopias.

    They are both new rare stealables you can receive when you use the Smuggler's Edge.

    I can translate the Japanese site which has the item details for people since its not accessible outside of Japan right now :p Helps with their exclusivity I guess ;)

    Think what you want. That's not the case, but i'm sure I couldn't convince you otherwise.

    I just don't appreciate one country getting something special over the rest of the entire damn world.. it should be for everyone at once, not "just for america" or "just for japan" or "just for europe".
     
  29. Does the Undertaker's Staff work across subservers? Would be a lot more valuable if it did.

    I can care less about who gets them first, that's childrens stuff. The fact that thses gimps are charging the players to get them is a load of cattle talk.

    Is EA/Mythic that hard up for cash? The CEO's almost didn't get bonuses??

    Keep em, PT Barnum said it "There's a sucker born every minute"

    Jealous?, no,....but what's right is right. We have to pay for these expansions, and then they stick cool stuff on test, and expect us to pay for them.

    Hell, these should have been the Christmas gifts......buncha scrooges and old man Potters, that's who runs Mythic.

    btw, we miss you Draconi, obviously your salary cut didn't cut it.

    Agree!

    But I'm also very unhappy that they are now selling "useful" items, above just decor.
     
  33. *wonders if I'm the only person who epically couldn't give a **** about these items.*

    If someone wants to pay rl money for an item that lets them find their corpse 100x then they're an idiot. We've been doing it for years for free.

    If free lockpicks are a cause for outrage, go down to the Cavern of Discarded, everytime someone GM's Tinkering they throw 10k+ lockpicks in the bin they cost 1 ingot ffs.

    A weapon that lets you ... do something you already could.

    A lantern in a different colour. OMG where is the fairness?!?!

    & some earrings that reduce vendor prices from a few gp to fewer gp... theres probably a way to exploit that... but for the time it takes it isn't worth it.

    Well, during the Thanksgiving event, a turkey killed me and my body became inaccessible as it was in a blocked part of some terrain. I had a bunch of maps and fragments on me at the time and lost them as I sat helplessly and watched my body decay. That staff sure would have saved me a goodly amount of time.

    Similarly, if you want to loot your corpse that just happens to be in the middle of a huge spawn, or a few monsters casting area effect spells, it'd be nice to stand a few screens and call your body to you.

    I wouldn't consider myself an idiot for wanting a way to get a hold of my corpse when it would otherwise be impossible or inconvenient.

    As for the smuggler's edge, I can see this being a great boon to thieves in that 50-80 skill range where it might be difficult to make sizable gains, manually.

    I don't have a vendor, so I can't speak to the usefulness of the earrings. However, in general, these items seem to fill a particular need for a good number of players. There's no reason to put others down, just because you lack imagination or scope.

    Im not too upset with not getting the items... If they were able to gotten from a quest I might be alittle more mad but I dont wanna have to pay real cash for items. If they are hard up for cash then they should make the game fun and get new players not take more money from the loyal ones that stick around. I do think its dumb to get so mad over a staff that when its charges are gone just become deco or ear rings that lower prices and make people in luna over charge even more than now so they dont lose money. I do understand people aren't getting mad just over the items.. It's the fact of one side getting something and the other side doesn't. I guess we can just keep yelling and hope EA sees the light but I doubt they will.

    Maybe we didn't get those items yet because our dev team are the ones who actually are busy breaking and fixing our game all the time. :eyes: If you think about it the Japanese teams have a lot more time to devote to this kind of stuff.

    Besides, with the track record for the uogamecodes site, I am really more jealous that the Japanese have a much better site to purchase from than we do.

  38. If it was inaccessible you wouldn't have been able to get in there to die.

    Yeah it would be nice to do that, it'd also be nice to have a staff that killed all the spawn and lit up a path straight there, but it isn't remotely necessary, and certainly doesn't warrant all the crying in this thread.

    I'm not saying you're an idiot for wanting to get your corpse, but for thinking you need to buy an item to do it, if somewhere is too hard for you to go then don't go there.

    Does the weapon actually gain skill for you? If so then yeah it probably is useful.

    I didn't realise the earrings meant player vendors, thought it meant npcs, yeah that could be a good amount of savings for people with heavily stocked vendors.

    I'm not putting others down because of my lack of imagination and scope I'm putting them down for being THIS upset over an item that is completely unnecessary. With my lack of imagination and scope I've never once had an irretrivable corpse no matter how thick the spawn.

    Edit: But yeah sorry for calling people stupid/idiots that was uncalled for. I just don't see what there is to be so worked up about.
     
  39. Anyone feel like maybe bringing a few of these to Great Lakes for the rares fest? Not just for me of course... lol : ) :mf_prop:

    You know I'm damn near sick to of this BS from EA.

    What the heck? Yet another exclusive to Japan sale of stuff... for fricks sake.. is this a Japanese or an american game?

    Why do they always get this crap.... and I agree this crap should be available in game... NOT for sale....

    Hell some of that smeg should be CRAFTABLE!...

    Nuff said.

    How the bloody frack do you get to the UOJapan store?? When I click on go to UOStore on the UOJapan site I get take to the US store...WTH?

    My Amex gold card is internationally accepted; I checked with Amex! So what is this some Anti-American BS to not allow us to buy from their store? Excuuuuuusssee Meeeee but last time I looked UO copyright is held in the

    THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! :grrr::bs:

    If EAMythic is gonna play this kind of crap favoring Japan Shards over USA then I say we do the American thing and raise some BLOODY HELL!


    I'm sorry if my anger offends you but I'm tired of American companies kissing foreign DERRIREE! One of my best friends in RL lost his job because it was taken to Venezula!!! Think about that the next time you make travel plans with Travelocity, or any of the other discount travel sites. My friend was IT Security for the resevations and CC processing server that those sites use for Tulsa International Airport!

    Well what exactly does the Japan Team do? They're not coding any serious thing I'm pretty sure, so what's there for them to do? Think they're basically just a marketing team for Japan.

    ----------------
    General Reply:

    Whenever the US sides offers promos people whine about them charging us for these items.
    Whenever Japan has promos people whine that they can't get all the worthless promotional items.

    Can we just lose the facade of actually having a reason and just whine all the time about absolutely nothing? At least it makes it easier to ignore.

    That being said, these letters I'm typing are too visible, and the spaces in-between them are just inept! I say we should crash Stratics and burn the devs in effigy. Pk the newbs, and quit UO in protest over the fact that the grass tiles are too green.

    All of this rage over items that shouldn't even exist. A staff that brings your corpse to you? Pretty soon we will be able to dungeon crawl from our houses. I mean heck, running out to retrieve the potions/apples/etc from our body was the only "risk" left in this game.

    Unless insurance is taken out of this game completely, this staff has no place in our game. Besides, with imbuing now possible to get to Legendary within 10 hours, it's not exactly hard to replace lost items or full suits.

    Of course, that is just my opinion.

    Yeah then why the HELL can't WE buy from their store?

    I call BS on the whole thing!

    If they're just a GLORIFIED marketing team then why do they give a rat's spincter where the hell the money comes from as along as they're selling stuff?

    I say EA as a whole suffers from one big whopping case of ANAL-CRANIAL INVERSION SYNDROME!

    What's worse, the fact that we can't get these items or the fact that you're getting so angry over WORTHLESS ITEMS get a grip on reality please. Or a sense of proportion?
    Maybe if you ask nicely, and be patient, you'll get better results.

    Well you guys are 100% missing my point completely!

    Apparently EA's Anal-Cranial Inversion Sydrome is contagious to its subcribers, Fanbois and Fangirls.

    Why can't we simply BUY THEM FROM THE UO JAPAN website?

    Most credit cards are internationally accepted. If not then I KNOW paypal is internationally accepted because I've personally payed for ebay items from Japan, Austrailia, UK, and Germany to name a few places I've bought things from. I've never had any trouble with paypal at all!

    So somebody tell me why I can't buy from UOJapan?

    Has Japan ever been able to get anything that we were not eventually able to get? Is it really going to be that hard to wait a little for these items? It's not like they are such amazing items that the game is not playable without....I mean what is that pot looking thing, a bedpan?
