    With us publishing out Vendor search we are having to take down the Housing warehouse and the Character transfer warehouse for a few hours today to make sure we update those also. This should be a one time only occurance so please be patient with us.
    Vendor Search

    Players will not see these improvements for the first 3 hours until the data base has been rebuilt.


    • Added the ability to search “Artifact Rarity” values
    Vendor Maps:


    • Added message when vendor map is placed in backpack.


    • Removed ability to sell vendor maps to mapmakers.


    • Removed ability to use vendor maps to teleport during combat.


    • Increased distance allowed for teleporting around house sign.


    • Added the ability to pay for teleporting with gold in backpack.


    • Removed the ability to use a vendor map as a recall rune.


    • Added the ability to open the container containing the vended item when within 19 tiles of the item.


    • Added a check to make sure an item is still for sale before allowing the player to teleport to the item.
    Vendor Searching:


    • Changed numeric search string restriction to only block numbers under 1000.


    • Changed text search to look for each word individually.


    • Added ability to sort results by price from high to low.


    • Added ability to remove individual search criterion.
    Vendor Results Menu

    • Fixed item properties display for empty strings.
    • Fixed display of some add-on items.
    • Added commas to price display.
    Easter Gifts


    Characters atleast 30 days old logging in between publish day and 12:01 AM 5/1/2014 will receive an Easter Gift!

    • An Easter Bunny raised in one of Sosaria’s various cities, with a chance at a rare location!
    • The Easter Bunny comes in eight (8) different vest colors
    • Once every 24 hours the Easter Bunny will prepare an edible marshmallow duckling that can be eaten
    • Marshmallow ducklings come in six (6) different colors.
    Event Moderator Reward Distribution Change


    Rewards distributed through the Event Moderator tool commonly referred to as “top attacker” or “top damager” will now function as follows:

    Broadsword Commemorative Plaques


    To Commemorate Broadsword Online’s investment into the future of Ultima Online, commemorative plaques will be available from the West Britain Bank after all shards are published. Please visit the plaque on your shard to get yours when they are available.

    Bug Fixes
    • Corrected issue where only the character that placed the house is allowed to customize the house
    • Corrected issue where goza mats were becoming unusable .
    • Discordance is now considered a hostile act when used against player pets; players may now only use peacemaking on player pets that are freely aggressive
    • Faction players once again cannot be put into stat loss or reward points when killed by non-faction players
    • Pets can no longer go wild while owner is riding them.
    • Players who customize a house containing a house add-on will no longer have security settings revert back to owner only.

    Usually 24 hours unless it is a tricky thing being added - then sometimes a little longer.

    I just met 4 different people on Origin all looking for the "Commemorative Plaques". Remember kids, always read the small print....

    "plaques will be available from the West Britain Bank after all shards are published. "

    I started out clicking on the bunnies for the candy, but then stopped because I didn't want so many items to deal with just yet. So I'm not sure yet if any of them give jelly beans. Wondering if it's a random thing each time you click on any bunny, or if a bunny always gives the same thing every day (i.e., peeps or jelly beans). Guess we won't know until tomorrow!

    Anyway, here are the cities I've seen so far (updated to include figures from Izumo):

    Britain (6)
    Bucaneer's Den (5)
    Cove (2)
    Delucia (2)
    Holy City (3)
    Jhelom (1)
    Lakeshire (9)
    Minoc (4)
    New Haven (5)
    New Magincia (2)
    Nujel'm (3)
    Ocllo (4)
    Papua (2)
    Royal City (6)
    Serpent's Hold (1)
    Skara Brae (1)
    Trinsic (3)
    Umbra (2)
    Vesper (2)
    Wind (3)
    Yew (3)
    Zento (3)

    Picture of the above-named bunnies and some of the peeps:

    Ya, me too. I have to make sure that I have characters on all shards just to keep up to date on prices.

    Anyone up to making a webpage to maintain shard prices on the most common and expensive items?

    Broadsword plaque:

    broadsword plaque.jpg

    Deeded (blessed) and you can place it south- or east-facing. Seems to be limited to one per account. And the clicky on Origin says it has a 4-week life span.

    Edited to add: When you click on the plaque, you get the overhead message, "In commemoration of Broadsword Online Games & the Future of Britannia, February 4, 2014." (Now I need to get an axe and see if that's what you use to redeed it, since clicking on it doesn't work..... And yes, axing it redeeds it.)

    Not my impression. (See below, though, for a big "but.")

    I think they mean this.

    Before: A list of people is drawn up on the basis of damage dealt, damage taken, damage healed. The items are distributed to the top people on that list. (15 items, top 15 on list get them.)

    After: A list of people is drawn up on the basis of damage dealt, damage taken, damage healed. The items are distributed to random people on that list. (15 items, 15 random people on list get them.)

    And now for the big "but."

    I think that the "top damager" list is separate from the looting rights list, but now that I think about it if someone ever said that for certain I missed it. So it's possible that you were right.

    Many thanks for the item drop system change.

    If things go well (all the usual qualifiers about such statements in this game!) it cannot fail to be positive by allowing a greater variety of templates to get things and by encouraging more actual participation -- as opposed to gaming the system by having a character designed solely for these events.

    The point of events always was, is now, and always shall be the story. Consistently rewarding only those people who were working the math behind the item drop system, rather than working the story, was causing untold harm.

    So, again, thank you.

    The name search also gets results from some of the item descriptions that you can place on an item. Such as a book title. You can search for a crafters name. Anything that is in the items description can be found.

    Didn't work item description that you can put on when pricing. But I bet it would find a container labeled with a tool. If you want to sell a beginners mage suit you can write on the container that it is in. Or title a book and toss it in the bag.
