    Hey I'm glad. They're available, no one has to buy em. Just like the Spring collection a couple of years back.

    Now that this is done, maybe we will get more word on the freebie anniversary ITEMS, that have been elusively hinted at since September.

    Anyone have a picture of the ancestral gravestone? No I'm not buying one, I just like the sound of it and I'm curious. I don't see one on the site.

    Unless those of us who have tried it have missed something, this part is incorrect - you don't get a choice, you get one of each of the 11 items (and note that the earring is a choice of one of five possible colors)

    I like them, and will defiantly be purchasing a pack. Kinda sucks about the non-rechargable armor tool, but I can live with it. The Maple trees look nice.

    lol, so everyone whines about not getting them, and then when they come, people whine more.

    Japan had to pay for theirs too y'know..

    Of course it's an attempt to milk the playerbase - every content addition to every commercially managed MMO is an attempt to milk the playerbase. EA does pretty well for themselves considering the miniscule amount of development time it takes for their average $30 UO related product, but the demand is there and these cash for items releases never really damaged anything, except the playerbases respect for EA/Mythic, but the standards for this were set LONG ago (AoS? Or earlier?)

    False Advertising

    "Any advertising or promotion that misrepresents the nature, characteristics, qualities or geographic origin of goods, services or commercial activities" (Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C.A. § 1125(a)).
    Proof Requirement
    To prove that an advertisement is false, a plaintiff must prove five things: (1) a false statement of fact has been made about the advertiser's own or another person's goods, services, or commercial activity; (2) the statement either deceives or has the potential to deceive a substantial portion of its targeted audience; (3) the deception is also likely to affect the purchasing decisions of its audience; (4) the advertising involves goods or services in interstate commerce; and (5) the deception has either resulted in or is likely to result in injury to the plaintiff. The most heavily weighed factor is the advertisement's potential to injure a customer. The injury is usually attributed to money the consumer lost through a purchase that would not have been made had the advertisement not been misleading. False statements can be defined in two ways: those that are false on their face and those that are implicitly false.

    5 out of 5!

    It would be nice to have multiple pack pricing - like the 5 ML packs offered a few years ago. Something like $60 for 3 sets of codes. $30 at this recession time is a bit high.

    This doesn't sound consoling to the "injured" parties who already bought the codes. Doesn't EA have a legal department?
     
  20. For those who bought it based on what you posted, will there be some sort of refund given? Because I wanted it so i could get multiple bookcases and maybe a set of earrings or two, but now im stuck with three tokens that will give me one of each item overall. What should I do, Chrissay? :please:
     
  21. Lady Kiara

    Lady Kiara Guest

    Is that the same list as the japan list?

    Isn't 30 Bucks a little steap? I mean aren't we the ones they're thanking for having the accounts and Keeping this game alive?

    30 bucks for what?...:yell:


    Fallen Log = House Deco :bdh:

    Lamp Post = House Deco :bdh:

    Hitching Post = Worth Paying for :bowdown: :thumbup1:

    Armor Engraving Tool = Waste...Limited charges: 30 times (non-rechargeable)
    After you spend the charges you spend 30 more bucks...to get again :thumbdown:

    Earring of Protection = If your Protection is already 70 will it be 72...Think not :scholar:

    Ancestral Gravestone = Sounds Good i Guess if you Carry Spirt Speak rolleyes:

    Bulk Order Cover = Waste....Limited charges: 30 times (non-rechargeable)
    After you spend the charges you spend 30 more bucks...to get again :thumbdown:

    Wooden Bookcase = House Deco plus another container..(guess it's cool considering it changes when you put stuff in it...:confused::bdh:

    Snow Tree = House Deco :bdh:

    Maple Tree = House Deco :bdh:

    Willow Tree = House Deco :bdh:

    So thats maybe 3 or 4 things worth really Getting that leaves 7 things that you can do with out....

    Has any one bought this yet because your suspose to get 11 tokens to redeem...according to Maplestone you don't get a choice, you get one of each of the 11 items....


    EA says....Eleven (11) Item Codes that you can redeem in-game for 11 Eighth Anniversary Item Tokens. These Token can be used to choose one of each of the items listed below or 11 of the same item. You can choose any combination of 11 you desire. You can also give or trade these Tokens in-game with other players.

    I will Probally break down down and buy sooner or later...But 30 Bucks

    WOW And i thought they loved us...:lick:

    Hello Everyone,

    My sincerest apologies for this confusion. It seems there has been a typo on the game codes store in relation to the 11th year collection items.

    To clarify, the 11th year collection is a package of items. Each of the items contained in the package are listed correctly on the game codes store site. However, there is only one code that gives you the items and there is one of each item.

    I've re-listed each item that comes in the package. There are 11 items total and one of each in the package.

    01. Fallen Log

    * This item is provided as a house add-on deed. (Blessed)
    * You can sit down on it.
    * You can select the direction when you place it in his house ("East" or "South")

    02. Lamp Post (round style)

    * Portable item (Blessed).
    * You can turn on/off the light by w-click.

    03. Hitching Post

    * Portable item (Blessed).
    * You are able to use it as a stable (animal trainer) when you lock down it.
    * You can use all stable related speech commands and command menu.
    * When you use it, you have to be in the house and have to be within 3 tiles from the hitching post.
    * One charge will be consumed when you claim your pet.
    * You can restrict users by access level.
    * All players who can enter the house can use the "stable" command freely and it consumes no charges.
    * Charge: 30 (Unlimited Rechargeable)
    * You can recharge it by hitching rope.
    * You can craft a hitching rope by Tinkering skill.
    o Tinker 60.0 + Animal Lore 15.0
    o Material: rope x1 & Resolve's Bride x1

    04. Armor Engraving Tool

    * Engraving tool for armors.
    * Portable item (Blessed).
    * Limited charges: 30 times (non-rechargeable)

    05. Earring of Protection

    * Earrings have "resistance +2"
    * You can choose one earring from 5 kinds of earrings.
    o Earring of Protection (Physical) Physical + 2
    o Earring of Protection (Fire) Fire +2
    o Earring of Protection (Cold) Cold +2
    o Earring of Protection (Poison) Poison +2
    o Earring of Protection (Energy) Energy +2
    * On the Siege and Mugen shards, these earrings aren't blessed.

    06. Ancestral Gravestone

    * Gravestone. It works only when it's locked down.
    * Portable item (Blessed).
    * When you w-click it, a praying message will be displayed over your character’s head.
    o After 5 seconds, a random undead appears around you, the creature will speak a random message and disappear within 2 seconds. In addition, you can get the "+ 5 spirits speak" buff for several minutes.
    o Cool -down Timer : 1 hour 30 min
    o This buff will disappear, also when you log out.

    07. Bulk Order Cover

    * Scrolls that allow players to dye bulk order books.
    * Limited charges: 30 times (non-rechargeable)

    08. Wooden Bookcase

    * Portable item. You can use it as a container.
    * This Bookcase’s appearance changes based on whether it contains items or not.

    09. Snow Tree

    * Snow Tree.
    * This is provided as a house add-on deed. (Blessed)

    10. Maple Tree

    * Maple Tree with red leaves.
    * This is provided as a house add-on deed. (Blessed)

    11. Willow Tree

    * Willow tree with strange branch.
    * This is provided as a house add-on deed. (Blessed)

    I do apologize for the confusion!

    So is it REALLY one token for each item, or you get 11 tokens and each time you dbl-click a token you choose what you want from the collection?

    OMG a way for Mythic to exploit more money out of unsuspecting customers, way to add more pixel crack before fixing the current and long exsisting problems.


    So how much are they charging for these "important" items.

    Put some of your resources towards getting some of the scripters/hackers out of your game.

    More pixel crack is the least of your problems.

  32. DHMagicMan_1

    DHMagicMan_1 Guest

    Wow! I'm glad I didn't waste my money!!!

    There's 2 or maybe 3 things in the entire collection I might want and of those one that I'd like multiples of... but there's no way that I'd spend $30 for 8 items I have no use/need for simply to try to trade/sell for the items I do want.

    If/when you figure out how to give us 3 (our choice) codes for $9.99 or something close to that, I'll be back.

    Thanks anyway.

    Does this mean that i can dye 30 books with 1 of these tokens/ or is it dyes the descreption is confusing
     
  34. What about those of us who purchased it based on the fact you told us we could pick and choose what we wanted? I feel like I was lied to and now I wasted money on something that is absolutely not worth it if I cant choose what I want. Who do I need to talk to here? :(

    Well ... how much gold would you trade? Not that I do this (yet), but you can look at these codes as a way to buy gold - get the items and sell them ingame to people who didn't want to spend real money for them. Good for the ingame economy.

    I'd also point out that back with the 8th and 9th anniversary boxes, people kept asking for a way to buy the codes without having to buy the box.

    ( that all said, yeah, it's pricey pixel crack :) )

    Waited all this time and you don't get a choice??? No thanks. And 30 dollars is way to much. I don't mind paying IF I get to pick what I'm paying for and IF it's not a ridiculous amount of money.

    NOW about the actuall FREE IN GAME GIFTS that none of the devs want to discuss...
     
  37. DHMagicMan_1

    DHMagicMan_1 Guest

    It would appear that you fixed the item on the GameCodes Site but the main ultimaonline.com site still has the wrong info front and center...

    Eleven (11) Item Codes that you can redeem in-game for 11 Eighth Anniversary Item Tokens. These Token can be used to choose one of each of the items listed above or 11 of the same item. You can choose any combination of 11 you desire. You can also give or trade these Tokens in-game with other players.

    I hope you've figured out how you are going to make this "right" for the people who bought this based on your first representations... I know I'd be VERY upset right now if I had.

    You get a set of "covers" of each color. Each cover can be used 30 times (so you can end up with 30 BOD books of each color = somehugenumberofbooks from a single code)

    I agree I feel sorry for the people that Was roped into Spending 30 bucks thinking they had a choice on what they got...IT'S A MIGHTY BIG TYPO WITH 2 MISTAKES...

    EA says....Eleven (11) Item Codes that you can redeem in-game for 11 Eighth Anniversary Item Tokens.These Token can be used to choose one of each of the items listed below or 11 of the same item. You can choose any combination of 11 you desire. You can also give or trade these Tokens in-game with other players.

    I thought we were on 11th anniversary not 8th...hmmmm *Thinks did i go through a Time portal to the past...*

    HOW CAN THIS BE A TYPO???? Really How?It's the whole message. Some one had to tell someone to but it there...I'm thinking it was ment to be that way but someone goofed in the scripting Department....I say fix it Your getting paid to...

    Sounds To Me that That's what it was intended for...Wonder what the people are thinking that got DUPED...

    OK i can't wait to hear how They will fix this one...Before They lose more people....

    I DON'T THINK OOPPS WE'RE SORRY FOR THE MIX UP..BUT THANKS FOR YOUR 30 BUCKS NON THE LESS...:D Will cut it....

    They make it right by offering 11 tokens for $11. Damn you know I'd buy 33tokens if they gave us a choice of what we wanted. Geez... really... does anyone remeber when an entire expansion ... you know with actual content cost $30?

    So you all ***** and moan about not being able to purchase 11th codes while japan has had them and now you get them and ***** over the price? lol.
    Japan was paying the same thing all this time...Get over it.

    I thought at first it was one token for 11 items, but the main site really got me excited about choosing 11 of one item (for example). What a mistake! What a mislead!
    Didn't they have months to plan this out?
    I know mistakes happen, but we can't keep forgiving every single time mistakes happen!!
    We pay for a good honest product, don't we? Who's accountable?
