Does anyone remember the original bank locations?
Cove added a bank, Magincia's was destroyed, and Haven's was moved to New Haven, other than that, no banks have ever moved, so they're where they have always been... not really understanding the question here.
Well, Haven didn't exist so that one doesn't count and I seem to remember Minoc didn't have a bank initially ( remember having to run to Vesper). So basically I trying to remember when UO went live in 97, what cities had banks?
In case anyone cares what brought me to think of this, I was cleaing out some old boxes and found my original UO install CD and it brought back all kinds of nostalgia....
I think this is what you are looking for:
Publish of 2/12/1998
-Banks will become available in Jhelom, Skara Brae, Minoc.
So originally there were no banks in those towns. And as Dermott said, a bank was later on added in Cove too.
...I'd forgotten that at one time we could place the guild stones in the boats! Heck, I bet a lot of people forgot (or never knew) that at one time you had to use a guild stone to access your guild options! I wish the existing stones would at least open the guild menu when you click on them, just for old time's sake. Yeah, I know ... there's an easy li'l button in the paper doll (I have a Ctrl-G Macro).
Thanks for the link! Brings back a lot of old memories!
The original banks were in Britian, Trinsic, and Vesper. All the others were added later. This is why PK activity was heavy around these cities since they were the only place to deposit.
I wish they would give us a stone again.... I miss having one..... Not that it needs to do anything ..... just be labeled..... Or it could just have the current roster.... or a place to leave a "guild" message.
WOW - Wonderfull peice of nostalgia. Honors and praises for that tidbit.
Also, for Brit, there was only 1 bank initially - west britain bank. No bank in east britain.
Like wise for Trinsic, the multi-storey bank near the north-east was added in later.
Couple that fact with having to use keys in your home in the early years and you can see why thieves used to be alot more popular.
So what were all the buildings in towns like Skara and Minoc before they became banks?
The Skara Brae "bank" was the Bee Keeper I believe.
They just chose one of the lesser used buildings.
I know Moonglow's bank use to just be a tinker guild building. J'helom's bank was just a jeweler's store. Skara Brae's bank was a beekeeper building. Minoc's I think was a councilor hall. I forget what Buc's Den's bank was, probably just a regular house. Yew didn't have a bank at the abbey either. I don't know about Magicinia either, since I never went there early on, Nu'jelm too.
