    Trash gifts though momentarily it will please many its just a waste of storage. ITS ACCOUNT BOUND total trash this year the thought that went in had to be lots you might have considered that many like to trade the gifts and collect the rare ones this well its just rubbish how this one works sorry but it has a small novel feel and will wear off in about 2 days then be fogoten. I putting all mine into the barrel of deletion!:yell:

    No thanx on this junk i liked the stuffies 1000x more then this waste of space!!
     
  11. I gave my heart to my wife at the Tokuno CS, she loved it :) Little cupid was a hit! Still I wish the hearts were not account related, going to hurt any cross shards trades I do.

    I love them..... Thank you for the wonderful gifts.... Now if only I had someone to give them to.....

    Ah well.... I too am a bit sad about the inability to cross shard trade them but that's ok..... there is always Xmas...... Also would have been nice if the heart was at least named so I know who's heart is who's...

    I like the hearts - you can fit 12 whole lines of text in them, and use preview to let others see the message. While some are upset that they are account bound, one benefit is that it reduces the chance of them being abused for nefarious reasons. And, of course, the GMs will be able to tell exactly which account programmed obscene stuff, since someone can't claim "oops, I just picked it up - I didn't know what was recorded on it before I played it." Because if it's not targeted on the player, then the player has to have been the owner. And, if it WAS targeted on the player, then it could be considered harassment by the character who gave it to them.

    Heck, they could be used, creatively, as the UO equivalent of leaving the horse's head in bed with someone, for PvP guilds, factions, etc. Though that would be more like an Aztec mafia message than a Sicilian one.....

    well even if you can't use the cupid part of the xtraded throbbing heart, you can still lock it down and you still have a cute pink basket that it came in . Not a total disaster.

    Once you choose valentine is it set forever? Can you continually change it?

    Cliff notes please. Thanks.

    once your heart is throbbing for someone, that's it. no takesy
    backsies. messages can still be altered though. In test i and some dude set our hearts to eachother and then we traded them back , i was able to change the messages but not able to change the Valentine person.

    You have my thanks too!

    Now I just gotta decide which shard/char to log. If I logged on with my female character, can I pass it back to my male character?
     
  21. OOOH - such self love should be considered overly narcissistic and bannable!

    But thinking about this, what happens if you send a Cupid to someone who isn't online at the time?

    LOL, ok, I just realized how that sounded like! :p

    No no, I'll definitely be giving it to the missus, but haven't decided which shard to claim it on if it's only 1 per account from what I think is happening.

    Don't want to login with the wrong char (I have multiple chars with the same name) and make a big booboo...

    So the 'throbbing hearts' are character bound? That means your character can only use one and that's it? What if we have a harem...
