    Greetings Everyone,


    Tomorrow October 15th, 2013 at 2 PM EDT we are taking down all shards to do a patch and publish to prepare for Publish 84. At this time we will also Publish TC1 so please check out the notes for all the new things we have been working on. The shards should only be down for a couple of hours. For tomorrow only, Oceania and Japanese shards will not be going through a regular maintenance.

    Thank you in advance!

    UO Team

    There should be a tag on forums where you can put the time inside it and as different people view it, it changes it based off the time zone listed on their account....

    Nice it's on UO.com, but surely this is exactly the sort of notice that should be on the client login screen too......

    Is this still a secret or just a lack of communication? I got the message online that the shards are going down, so there shouldn't be any reason to keep the secret going, is there?

    If they haven't listed the changes, I would bet there is something they are changing that they don't want people rushing to do before the change (like using the Mythic Tokens or the free damage eater armor).

    Well, this is what I thought at first, but what kind of bug would require taking all the shards down for several hours? Every other bug fix was a short downtime.

    It's not the first time the shards have gone down all together in preparation for a new publish. Possibly the patch needs to be downloaded before we log back in to the shards?

    True - but i think its the first time they take shards down on so short notice to put in a publish, without posting any notes on it first. Only times they taken down servers so fast and all of them, - as I recall has been major bug fixes or exploit fixes.

    Maybe, but I'm not one to buy into conspiracy theories on so little evidence.
    I also remember that Mesanna likes to spring surprises.

    Lol no.

    It simply is referring to when you use a house tele, you get a warning gump each time. This is just a way to turn it off

    HURRAY!!

    Of course... Vesper will now be under attack so our new stable will not be very popular. I hope the invaders don't trample our nice new flowers!

    Ooh invasions and in both Tram and Fel - Thanks a lot devs! I look forward to seeing these new items and grabbing some.

    Quick question - how long will these invasions continue for?

    I can't wait to see the BBQ pig, sounds like a great new deco addition! Do the new pork items give any buffs or effects or are they deco/food only? (which is still fab, it's always good having new additions for the tavern menu)

    I'm wondering if the new Britannian pork sandwich will lead to new craftable sandwiches with bacon, cheese and salad too. Maybe even go wild with some baguette sandwiches or toasted sandwiches.

    *locks up her cook before she gets over excited*
