    Greetings Everyone,

    Starting tomorrow morning we will be patching a new client and publishing all shards so we can deliver a Valentine's Gift to everyone. Cupid will not deliver your gifts till after you regular maintenance cycles. This year we are going to do something a little different. A Red Cupid will appear somewhere in the City of Compassion, once you find it you may claim your gift. The location will be different on all shards so happy hunting.

    Happy Valentines Day,
    UO Team

    Hopefully they're fixing the bard song mastery issue.

    Oh, nice.
    No gifts spawning in your backpack this time. Good, good.
    I won't have to hold 28 of them till next year to trash it for points. :p

    very thankful there is content we can simply ignore rather than having to take the time to trash.

    HOOORAY!

    Not to ruin the negative streak going on in here :/ but YAY! Thank you! I always thought it was rather boring to just have gifts pop into your pack...the idea of hunting for them is really cool!

    Happy Valentines Day team! :heart:

    Lol, this promise of a Valentine gift is generating a less than enthusiastic response

    I am pretty happy about it, actually.
    It gives me the chance to completely ignore it and keep on pretending that Valentine's day isn't a thing. :)

    I really don't enjoy hunting for crap lol. At least this time they actually told us. Usually there's a gift out there and they don't say anything and you find out about it after the event is over. Dragon Eggs or something is coming to mind.

    We all know that the location will be spoiled within .2 seconds of a shard rebooting Unless the little winged vermin moves around, there will be little hunting involved. :p

    Yeah agreed. They should add the new items to the turn in points the day the release them. Most of the time you get the gifts then have to wait for the next publish to get the turn in points.

    So now i have to go and hunt my gifts? I thought gifts were meant to be given not hunted for. I hate the idea of having to hunt for a gift.

    The 'hunt' is only to find which building in Britain the gift giver statue is in on your shard - and https://stratics.com/community/threads/wheres-cupid.332968/ makes even that a fairly simple job.

    Thats all good and fine. But the last 12+ months i can only draw the strength to log in to collect gifts that drop in my pack then log straight back out. Now i have to get to point x collect the gift and return back home. Rinse repeat over 2 accounts and 14 shards and its a lot of running around for something that normally just drops in my back pack

    Easiest way is to use the EC and use the control + shift and be sure to put "cupid" in your search.... that way you can case the town in a matter of seconds.
