    To recharge, drag and drop Recall spell scrolls directly onto the rune book.

    Medea-

    A few things to note that have changed since you left (just a bunch of random thoughts, out of many changes):

    Logs can now be turned to boards by carpenters, lumberjacks and (I believe) Bowcrafters, by using an axe on the logs (instead the old method involving the carpentry skill and a tool menu selection).

    Stone and sand now stack, and weigh less than before. Potions also stack and can be put in commodity deeds, as do a lot of other things.

    Gold now weighs 1/3 as much as it used to (so most people can carry a full stack of 60,000 gold in their pack, if strength allows). Gold amounts at champ spawns have increased even more than this.

    I'm not sure if you left after the Bag of Sending nerf, but that nerf got reverted after a year or two, so they work as originally intended.

    Champ spawns on all facets now drop pink scrolls that give actual permanent skill increases (so long as you have skill cap room). The actual champs of each drop replicas of a lot of the extremely over-duped Event Rares. IIRC, the champs got buffed a bit too, shortly after you left.

    BODs and runics got major boosts.

    Spellbooks of various types can now be made by scribes with additional bonuses when held (not just magery books).

    for Tamers, two Words: Greater Dragons
    longer answer - If you treat Destard or other Dragon spawn areas like you did before you left, you will be seeing gray REALLY quickly - and it won't be from PKs. Greater dragons take all 5 pet slots, has 650-1000 HP tamed (twice that wild), and 100-130 in most skills (including magery, wrestling and tactics).

    Slayers were recently changed to where Super Slayers still do double damage - but non-super slayers (like a dragon slayer or ogre slayer) now do triple damage.

    There were special artifact drops added permanently to the anti-virtue dungeon for the 10th anniversary, some of which can be useful (like a statue that gives a 1-hour luck boost based on account age 1/day, a dragon slayer sword, and the virtue armor set - though the latter requires a quest for the cloak).

    Soulstones are now 1st year vet rewards, along with a box that allows you to fill or break commodity deeds in your house, and a crystal portal that will take you to moongates or banks on most facets.

    Several new 1-use dye colors were added by the last round of Treasures of Tokuno, and with Stygian Abyss we now have additional dyes that can be created with plants and alchemy.

    blank scrolls can be crafted, as well as scroll binders that allow you to turn 10 105s into a 110, 10 110s into a 115, or 10 115s into a 120.

    All these new high-end cloth items (replicas, artifact drops, event items etc.) mean that Clothing bless deeds have escalated in value, and Imbuing has done the same for Powder of Fortifying(as items can't be powdered after imbuing, most will powder items to 255 before imbuing). This makes a bunch of the low end BODs more worth doing (and even the lowly Dull Copper Hammer and Spined Kit are now somewhat valuable in terms of making stuff to imbue, and stuff to unravel for raw imbuing ingredients).

    this is a new option on your character ... click the character and select the titles menu option. then you can tailor your overhead and paperdoll stuff. brand spanking new with SA release (or shortly thereafter).

    oh, while I'm on a roll ... also look in the loyalty option on that character menu. it now shows your fame and karma levels (points) as well as loyalty to the garg queen

    Thanks for that info, Basara. Like Medea, I'm coming back after a break. My account is still active, but I had the KR client installed. I see I need to uninstall that now. Considering I'm just getting back into the swing of things, I don't need the SA client immediately. What are my options? Are the downloads here (Mythic Entertainment | Ultima Online - Play the 14-Day Free Trial!) for SA that I would have to pay to upgrade? I'm not even sure I want the beta (Enhanced) version...does it still have a lot of bugs / is it fairly stable?

    It looks like I can downgrade from KR to ML for free, so maybe that's what I should do. ML was the most recent before KR wasn't it? Again, I don't need a 14-day free trial because I have an account that is paid up and active.

    Thanks in advance!

    It's a little confusing because they named clients the same as expansions for a while...

    The latest expansion is Stygian Abyss. If you want access to it, you'll have to buy the upgrade code-key. You will automatically have access to everything else without upgrading.

    Currently, there are two clients: 2D - also known as the "Classic Client" and the SA client - now known as the "Enhanced Client". The Enhanced client is basically the KR Client with some improvements, but simpler graphics so that it will run better on older machines than KR did.

    If you were familiar with KR, I'd recommend the Enhanced Client. It is still listed as "in beta", but I can't really say it is any buggier than the classic client.

    :thumbup1:

    I downloaded the enhanced client from the link above. Hours later, I finally got all the patches ("high speed" internet sure leaves a lot to be desired these days).

    Thanks, Tazar. This is definitely what I was looking for. I'm glad I wasn't forced to pay for SA right away just to gain access to my active account. I can't believe I've had it for 12 years now, but -- sure enough -- when I logged in, it said "This account is 144 months old." Ah, memories...

    When you get a little more familiar with the new client, you might want to check out some of the player mods to the user interface. There are some great things available there. Just ask check the "UO Enhanced Client beta discussion" forum and look for a link to the UO-Modders Exchange.
