    We are excited for the first TC1 release of the Time of Legends! This is only part one of what you can expect to see in Pub 90 and can expect to see part two in the next week. Make sure you patch your client before testing anything on TC1. We look forward to seeing you on TC1, if you have any feedback please send it to [email protected]. We will be pushing this tonight so expect TC1 to go down for a short period of time.

    Under Masteries, Housing Craftables, and Customizable Housing Tiles there is a sentence that says, "This feature requires the Time of Legends expansion entitlement. This entitlement will be applied for free to all accounts active during August, September, and October 2015.

    Has there been a change regarding which accounts will be updated with the Time of Legends expansion entitlement, i.e., your account must be active in all three of these months? On August 3, 2015, Mesanna posted on uo.com, "If you have a current subscription, reactivate your account, or start a new account in August, September, or October, your account will have the Time of Legends expansion applied automatically. " There's a big difference between saying you need to have your account active in August, September AND October vs. saying you have to have a current subscription or reactivate or start a new account in August, September, OR October.

    Thanks.

    So Humility looks like a complete fail for anyone not a tamer or who doesn't use live mounts. The -70's to resists will be interesting, if you like roleplaying tissue paper. -50 would probably have been a sufficient handicap, Humility =/= recklessness. This Virtue also really needs to have a broader reward application; such a narrow focus, thus a narrow audience, belies earlier dev statements regarding invalidating content for the masses.

    Spirituality actually looks useful, and its gain method seems appropriate. The reward description is a bit vague though... I'm assuming it means that at Knight, you get a 20% incoming damage reduction, capped at 200 hp absorbed post calculation. Will need to test it, but even a 200hp cushion feels like it would get chewed through awfully fast by most higher-end mobs.

    The Enchanted Summoning sounds good, though magery summons desperately need a revamp to be more potent at high skill levels. All but one of them are completely worthless, and even EVs fundamentally pale in comparison to an RC cast by an equivalently skilled mystic.

    we'll have to see if its just -70 resist, or -70 cap. relatively easy to make an all 140s resist suit, or close too it, so a person could effectively be getting spirituallity gains all the time and be able to use that ability. hopefully there will be new mobs bosses where its actually needed. itll probably also be abused in pvp and complained about alot.

    I will have to test some of those masteries on TC1 during the weekend, but I can't say I am too keen on them based on what I've read.
    Specially the weapon skill ones. I was expecting them to add versatility so maybe I could try other weapons other than just ones with AI or DS for PvM.

    Flying fist for the paladin is interesting, giving the swordsman some damage from a distance. Sounds like Might and Magic.

    Ok, this all sounds pretty interesting, but I think I'm totally missing something with masteries.

    The patch notes say

    -Each skill mastery has 3 levels of proficiency and do not have a cumulative requirement (you don’t need to use volume 1 and volume 2 to use volume 3). Double click a volume to learn that mastery.
    -Each skill mastery provides 3 abilities, which can be passive or activated.

    However, under Magery I only see Death Ray and Ethereal Blast listed, Mysticism only has Nether Blast and Mystic Weapon, etc.

    It looks like some of the skills only have 2 abilities.

    Some of the others, like Poisoning, have 3 abilities listed (Tolerance, Injected Strike, Potency).

    Am I completely reading this wrong? Do some of the skills have 2 abilities, and some 3, are the remaining abilities in Part 2 of the patch notes? I'm confused.

    And, since each mastery has 3 levels of proficiency, does that mean Magery - Death Ray will be...

    Magery - Death Ray Level 1
    Magery - Death Ray Level 2
    Magery - Death Ray Level 3

    Can someone explain?

    I'm guessing this is me completely misreading this.

    Thanks all. Have a happy weekend!

    All the spellcasting ones have a 3rd ability that is the same, Enchanted Summoning "buffed summons"... Same with Saving throw for the melee skills.

    Some of the masteries appear to be shared between a few skills, like the magic skills share "Enchanted Summoning." It seems a bit shortcuty...

    I seem to remember, this is many.....many.....moons ago now, that the dev team was talking about the virtues in a public chat or fan meeting, and stated that the goal was to have the virtues available for many different playstyles, but not necessarily that each virtue would be available to every play style. I think this was in response to a request to change Justice (which was really just killing reds at the time - don't know what it is now) as a number of people didn't like that it was only PvP.

    Not saying I agree with this design for the virtues, just that I remember this discussion having taken place.

    No, you can only add pieces. You cannot "customize" the actual prebuilt form in a subtractive sense.

    You will not be able to remove anything. This means you can't get into those 3 area's of a keep STILL. But you will be able to put doors in the towers and such like they should have had years ago.

    Well that's just a complete bummer. If you can't knock down walls the whole thing seems completely pointless. There's gotta be more to it than that.

    There has been no change. It's still August, September, or October. Mistype on the part of the notes. Apologies for the confusion.

    Everyone who gets Time of Legends gets 2 extra slots, taming masters get more on top of that.

    No, Mesanna has said that the code for castles/keeps is too old to go mucking with. Which is also why we won't be able to get into a keep's dead spaces :oops:

    All the masteries have three abilities, in some cases (like the major magic and melee schools) the third ability, usually passive in nature, is shared across multiple masteries.

    You can actually accomplish quite a bit without removing walls. Below are some examples of what the focus group was able to accomplish. Look forward to seeing everyone's creativity with this feature.

    Well then there's some point to this Castle customizing thing? Or is that all just BS? If it's just a new form of "rubble" then that does us no good at all.

    Well if your court yard is full of trees and such it cuts down the benefit quite a bit :p

    I think most people assumed they were going to be able to fully customize the castles and keeps or at the very least were going to be able to knock down the dumb walls at the door of the castle and the dumb grass areas of the keep.

    I think the new crafting stuff for castles and keeps are cool but will be a let down to a lot of people.

    Looks like goza floors above the castles and keeps will still be the way to go for most.

    Well.... it's not what I was looking for at all. I'm sure there will be some that super appreciate it though. I noticed the one pic with the upstairs arches it appears to have modified the way the castle's current structure is, so that's confusing. It appears to be modifying the actual castle.... Kinda like gozas on steroids ;)

    Ok the code is old so no keep yard access that way. Then let us get in there like we used to, with magic. Then we can lock plants down please.

    Did anyone else notice in the last picture Kyronix posted that the new walls and arches and stuff don't connect to the front walls? There's gaps there, that would drive me insane. As I recall working in the rear court yard is a real pain placing and locking stuff down. I'll have to look into that again. I did like the top walk way some. That's one thing I might be able to do with my set up. But if that doesn't line up right either then.... I guess I'll be disgruntled :p

    all I know is I patched today and now I can't get into the game, it says, Can't connect to Ultima Online. Please try again in a few moments. Anyone else having this problem? Or is it just me?

    The more I think about it the more upset I get. Mesanna should concentrate on doing it right over just kicking something out and saying it's addressed. I'm just gonna pretend this expansion isn't happening and just deal with what I'm eventually forced to deal with. I know I clicked on my bank box and got this massive gump with all kinds of options. I just give up....just super disappointed. I'm going to bed....

    Ya know this is a joke. We need customizable 24x24's. It's the only fair thing to do. Castles are suppose to mean something in this game. I'm going to bed again... :)

    The mace fighting "stagger" mastery sounds like a special attack. Dear developers and God and Santa, please make it a competetive alternative to Armor Ignore. I'd love to be a macer again but right now it's just the war axe skill because nobody wants to use a 4s weapon with crushing blow or some crap. Right now nobody even wants maces, go check the relative price of the respective 120 scrolls.

    And apparently Humility is just for tamers because, I don't know, the Humility class in Ultima 4 was shepherd, and shepherds and tamers both use a crook, and apparently it's humble to be really weak and duck out of the way while your pet fights, or something. I can kinda see where they're coming from thematically if I squint a bit. Still think it should be more general purpose.

    All in all it looks pretty good I guess. I like the Animate Dead buff a lot, I'll have to get into that.

    Yeah, you can add to castles and keeps to make them more individual, but there is nothing that will let you delete existing walls.

    CC or EC for bank box gump? I have patched the CC and I do not get the bank box gump. I totally 200% agree with you on the BS Castle/Keep customizing, it is worthless.

    This is the new Bank Gump in TC right now. Will someone please explain what each of these do? What is a transfer account versus secure account? This may be one of those things i dont like at first but then get used to, but i really dont like it at first...


    EDIT: the gump stays with me after i leave the bank area....

    Hmm - if you could get into the keep voids, and lay down the new floor/wall pieces, could you then use the crafted teleporters to access the rooms?

    Or for that matter, couldn't something be done like the rat holes?

    Unfortunately @Kyronix I get no other gump when i hover over the buttons or the text. This happens a lot with other things in the game come to think of it...
