I played U.O. for about 4 years a while back. I quit when all my friends got wow, saying, its going to be awsome, and wot not. Well, it wasnt awsome, i quit not long after. I recently got warhammer, but It isnt that great. I kinda miss UO, but if i remember, it got old to me because of lack of things to do. I stopped playing right after samuri empire came out. So I was thinking about comming back, but im wondering a few things. Do my characters still exist? I quit I think over 5 years ago. I see that baja still exists, that was my server. Also, what has changed since samuri empire? Has combat changed? Are there new lands? How is the quest system? Are there lots of cool things for tamers to tame? Does animal taming still take forever to raise to 100? Are there any new skills? Is the skill cap still 700? Is the skill cap still 120? Are in game events and scenarios, frequent and interesting? And my main question. Does the game still have a large player base? Is there still lots of competition at certain monster spawns. Is there still no housing availible? Are there still lots of people to play with, or against >.> Honest detailed answers would be appreciated.
