    Had similar problem and tried reformatting -- didn't work either. My issue remains unresolved and I don't want to try other codes until I resolve first one.

    Glad someone needs these cheap items!

    I already have most from idocing.

    You can copy and paste the promo code into in game Help I have a promotional code by regular drag and click the code at Origin sale page (highlight blue, left click? click copy), then use I think its control + v to copy and paste in in game help.

    For account upgrade codes that give an in game item, of course you need to copy and paste drag and highlight and click into account management first, then use the above method to copy and paste in game for the item.


    Oh it takes about two minutes after you copy and paste codes in game for the item to appear in your backpack.

    A nerve-wracking two minutes.

    Heck. If they were on sale earlier, I would have gotten 4 extra pens of wisdom. :(
    They need to put the 11th year collection on sale too. Only way to make it worth buying for the resist earrings.

    You don't need to reformat them anymore.
    Just copy and paste.

    Lets see... 1st there was the well advertised 20% off sale. Now there is well advertised 50% off select item sale.

    Hmm... If someone made a better game log-in announcement (i.e., News area or special pop-up) to notify everyone in real time of a sale, someone in the office could possibly win a UO coffee mug! :rolleyes:

    Had the same problem and still have not had it resolved. I did receive an email saying what to do. But following those directions did not help.

    I look at what is for sale on the origin site and cant help but think 90% of the items should be available in game for free because UO is a subscription based game. I'm all for selling expansions and deco only items. Items like the Pen of Wisdom, forged Metal tools, raised gardens are pay to win items. There should be ZERO pay to win items in UO because its a subscription based game. These items should be available in game as rewards.

    What's next a GM support token for $19.99, or custom legendary artifacts (ten dollars per mod)?

    If you wanta make money and not hurt the game sell custom mounts. Make a ridible drake or dragon (but work as ethy mount - double click and it goes in your pack). They will sell like hot cakes. Get creative with the mounts. Take Neverwinter for example, they created a mount so weird and awesome at the same time I had to buy one. Gelatinous Cube Mount. Any old school pen and paper D&D fan knows what it is. Once I saw it in game I had to have one.

    In UO I'd like to see a magic carpet mount. Seems doable. I'd like a worg to go with a orc player race. I'd even be happy buying a Pegasus, or something out of the box like a harpy as a mount. Point is custom mounts could be a huge boon for UO. Just stop with the pay to win items please.

    Tried this and received pen of wisdom no problem. tried the code for woodworkers bench and got message about internal error and to contact a GM. I think that is funny. I still had a message in the help for support the last time it didnt work. Will I ever learn. I have one more code to try but dont think I am going to try it until these two are resolved. So it would seem it is pot luck if it works or not, so good luck.

    OK figured it out. If you buy multiple items during one checkout, once you claim the first item it says that all items are filled when you check the status of the purchase on Origons site. So dont buy more than one item at a time it looks like.

    I bought multiple items. The WW bench is what caused me troubles and it was my first item to redeem. I have sense redeemed account enhancements, i.e. Kings Collection and the ExtraStorage/7th slot without problem. When I tried the WW bench again, still had problems. I have been hesitant to do any other items.

    I always get error 5000 when trying to buy the 10 charge forged metal tool along with other items.
    I gave up on it and only buy the 5 charges one now.

    ok , I am now impressed. A GM showed up while I was fighting ONI's and gave me my item from the broken code. What a nice guy.

    I disagree with Lug:I'd actually like to see more items available not less. Although I do like his idea of custom mounts and expansions to include more races.

    Anything UO can do to pull in revenue is a postive to me. We need to support this game if we want to see it continue to be around in the near term future.

    I do wish they'd fix the issues players are having redeeming the codes.

    I would love to see a Veteran Rewards Choice token or a Pen of Enlightnment (Like the Pen of Wisdom) except it will automatically fill books for you.

    There are many items they could add that would generate more revenue for the game.

    Anyone else have any clever ideas about cool items they could add or would like to see made available?

    The resource talismans and maps rewards from the Void Pool without a timer limit and with at least 10 times more charges would be a very welcome addition to the store.
    And they would have the benefit of most their coding being done already.

    One more stable slot upgrade code for a total of 5, we can have 5 followers but only stable 4 of them.

    NPC broker to handle high end sales like real estate transfers.

    Single and 5 pack Earring of Protection.

    Reins of Dread and Reins of Bane: Once a month the owner of this item, a tamer, is allowed to summon a dread mare or bane dragon which has randomly game generated stats (so it may suck). The creature spawns in a wilderness area and the owner of the reins has 24 hours to locate and tame it. Only he or she can see the animal during that time. Tips can be given to the location of the dread or bane, but time is removed from it's invisibility for each tip used. After 24 hours if untamed the dread mare or bane dragon becomes visible to anyone passing. A mini game within the game for tamers. We need more dread mares and bane dragons in UO.


    High Seas II Pirates on Monkey Island: Reptiles have invaded Monkey Island and we must join with a pirate, learn to be a pirate to find the island and save the monkeys. In turn we get pirate titles, pirate clothing and a monkey companion who can sit on our shoulder and go fetch small items for us. Maybe help fire ship cannons.

    Clothing alteration/dye kit: Allows us to shorten or lengthen items: cloaks can be elbow length, hip length or ankle length. Shoulders narrowed or widened. Sparkles can be added, or polka dots. Tie dye dye tubs? Europa gold cloth tub. Tangle cloth tub. Tub that dyes items their special hue, not their base hue.

    Skin dyes not restricted by race. We had tons of fun dying our skin every shade under the sun on Test Sosaria when Hanse set up some universal dye tubs. So skin dyes including all bod reward cloth colors, Tokuno dye colors, reward dye colors, etc.

    The UO section of the Origin Store needs work first so if we do get new items we can find them and then buy them in multiples.

    BTW, if you're having trouble completing a purchase (and the stuff is still on sale), check your Origin Account information (NOT your billing information).

    My purchase wouldn't go through until I found out that something had replaced "United states" in my "Country" with something else, in what appeared to be an eastern European alphabet (may or may not have been something slavic for "United States" - at least my limited language skills looked like it might have been). Once I fixed it, logged out, logged back in, and selected my items again, the order went through on the first try.
