    Does anyone know why the Smuggler's Edge is no longer purchaseable as a code to then claim the item ? Would it be possible to have it back on the list of items that can be purchased ?

    By the way, what other codes besides this and the Rustic/Gothic combo are no longer purchaseable?

    Would it be perhaps possible that the Developers helped to have these be put back as purchaseable items ?

    I don't remember a combo pack so not sure. What I would really like to know is why we can't get the stuff Asian Shards get and are we going to get a %50 off everything like Euro Shards got. It really sucks that UO started in the US and we get so little in return when it comes to this kind of stuff.

    It blows my mind the number of threads I continually see about codes being gone from the store or not available in certain regions.

    Why the hell would EA not want our money?

    I´m fairly certain I remember something like that...

    I think it was a Valentine's 2012 sale. Some items were reduced by $5-10 for a couple weeks. I recall the uoherald post stating something cheesy like, "who loves you?" with it.

    We had a few BS items on sale but it was Euro and Dratch that got the BIG %50 off everything not to long ago.

    You used to be able to buy each of the 11 year anniversary item tokens individually. Like if I wanted a round lamp post and some earrings, I could buy one token each for $1.99 rather than the whole collection at $15.99 and get a bunch of stuff I don't want or need.

    :facepalm: And where do you get the stupid idea that this frightens me, it is just a fact that Asian Shards get things nobody else does and Euro & Dratch got a %50 off everything and the US UOStore gives a few %10 discounts on BS items. If they are going to do this then it would be nice to do it accross the board for everybody, is all.

    Yeah Europa had a 50% sale off the other month. I took full advantage of this and sent some cash to a friend to buy me some codes.

    I just wanted to point out that some people living on the European continent were allowed to enjoy the 50% discount - eventhough they don't play on Drachenfels or Europa shard at all. :)
    Explanation: No need to take that remark about being 'frightened' seriously, we Europeans don't mean everything we say word by word.

    Too bad I have no idea how to buy one on the Japanese store to then redeem the code on the shard I play...

    I do not understand, though, why it could be up for sale on the Japanese store but not on the Origin store...
    Go figure....

    Because UO Japan likes to make money and EA games likes to lose money.
