    Take a look to your right and see any new. Ok waits for a second. If you didn’t catch it we have made Mondain’s Legacy free, including the seven expansions prior to it. Yes we said FREE! I’m sure you are asking yourself “so how do I get access to all of the expansions?” This is the easy part, all you have to do is log in and play. That’s it it’s that simple.


    All players will now have access to:
    • Elves
    • Increased storage capacity
    • Spellweaving
    • All the current Dungeons
    • Much Much More
    You can see all of the features available in Mondain’s Legacy here: http://www.uoherald.com/uoml.

    Good idea, though I am sure anyone who bought a Mondain's Legacy upgrade code in the last couple days is not so happy about it.

    Nor are the people (like me) who just recently bought the 9th anniversary box to upgrade their 2nd account that wasn't accessed past AOS.



    Well, at least I got some extra housing tiles that I will never use.

    Guess I can pretty much throw out those 9th ed boxes I picked up in the bargain bin :)

    Simplifying the hierarchy of entitlements is always good in my books.

    They probably wanted to clean out all the entitlement code. Perhaps this is even a precursor of the account system being upgraded.

    Does this also include the 6th charecter slot?

    I know some players that never upgraded past AOS, and Samurai.

    TIA

    I'll take a look into this. However, I believe it's just the content portion that has been made available.

    EDIT:
    While reviewing for the 6th character slots it appears that it was only available in the 7th anniversary edition. Only the named expansions not the anniversary editions have been made available to all players.

    Ok, I spotted the 5 mistakes you deliberately left in there (the extra exclamation marks were for added effect only), do I win a bank capacity upgrade and a 7th char slot? :p


    Joking! I make grammer and spelling mistakes all the time :D Well, unless it was deliberate and my guess about getting a prize is correct!

    Thanks EA, I hope this will help bring more players back to UO. Many would like to come back now where they don't need to upgrade their old account

    If I had an account that was UO:R (Renaissance) enabled only so 5 characters, and I added the 7th character slot upgrade to it would I get the sixth slot too or would I only end up with six slots total when purchasing the 7th character code?

    It says it upgrades you to 7 (on uogamecodes page) - no matter how many you had before. So if you have 5 you will get 2 additional slots.

    That's correct :) I'm actually having that FAQ updated to reflect this issue as we speak.

    Chrissay...you might want to have them change the FAQ again.

    This taken from the faq:

    If you haven't purchased the UO 7th Anniversary Edition, you can also add another character to your UO family without having to eliminate one of your favorites. by purchasing an Ultima Online 6th Character Slot Code. This can be done for only $19.99 using your credit card or bank check card, and it will give you a sixth character slot on all shards. (Note: If you all ready have six character slots, this code will not give you another one.) For more info or to purchase a Ultima Online 6th Character Slot Code go to www.uogamecodes.com.





    This taken from uogamecodes.com:

    7th Character Slot



    Six character slots not enough? Now you can create a seventh!



    An Ultima Online 7th Character Slot code will give you a seventh character slot on all shards. (If you only have five character slots, this code will bump you up to seven.)

    except Siege. It won't even bump you up to 2 character slots on Siege. :(

    It would be on my 'wanted' list if it did.

    Does the increased storage include the bank also?

    Or is it only for the houses?


    Just checked...bank is still 125 items..sniff

    Does it give access to the shadow and crystal housing tilesets ( I think that was 9th edition rather than ML - I don't have an un-upgraded account to test againt, just wondering if someone creating a new account now has access to all current entitlements or if there are still any lingering restrictions? )

    Ughhh, this is so unfair. I paid for this upgrade on 2 accounts when it was first released. Now they're free!!!!!!!

    I want justice!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh pish tosh! It was the dollars spent on those expansions that enable us to recieve the newer ones. Remember that next time any of you start questioning this generosity.

    Odd. You would think with a new expansion set to be released sometime in the near future they would have just tacked on the "access to all previous expansions" verbage as an extra incentive.

    I sensed your sarcasm, notice the "any of you" in my reply :danceb:

    Anyway, I had a guildmate come back after a long hiatus and paid yesterday to upgrade 3 accounts to ML. He just opened a support ticket, maybe they will be really nice and do him good.

    *get's a foreboding feeling of impending doom*

    I sense a herald report, dated july.... 3.. 0. Yes, 30. July 30. It tells a tale about a delay, and something to do with an abyss. The detail's are foggy. The phrases 'appease the masses' and 'throw them a bone' are repeated over and over.




    But then again, my crystal ball might just be on the fritz again and handing out bad information. :thumbsup:

    Is there anyway that the Devs could remove this line (see pic) from the places it appears now that ML is available to all? Just a suggestion... I know you are busy, but would help cleanup some things with SA coming.

    I just think they are adding the Mondain's Legacy to help combat the "troubled times". Seems all games are doing something to help out (or boost sales, or stop the bleeding).

    Nevertheless, I am willing to wait for SA expansion. Now that they have the ToT events and Shadowlords to keep us busy I don't mind. Now that the SA Client beta is out, that's keeping me busy (and excited). I am having a ball.

    Please don't rush SA expansion or the final release of the SA "Enhanced" Client.

    Website error!!
    On Firefox, the uoherald has the Mondain's legacy banner blowing up large, then small again. I therefore can't click on the right box for "14 Day trial". Something's funny.
     

  33. Think thats bad.. I cant even get the banner to download on the site..all I get at the top of the page is a black section that keeps flickering Ultima Online off and on..guess thats where the banner is suppose to be. It downloads the picture about 1/3 of the way and gets stuck.

    Naw, no sarcasm. And I will not be opening a ticket to get any money back. UO is a great game. I am happy to spend a few bucks to help keep it around for all of us.

    And the poster who suggested that the line on itmes for the ML requirement should be removed. Thats a great suggestion, since every account now has the upgrade.

    Thanks,
    Borric

    I think after all the time laspe that has gone by, they should allow Seige at least 2 slots. :scholar:

    I logged on an account that I had not upgraded to ML, and I was able to enter into the elven city.

    My question is, will the status on the subscription page in the account, be changed?

    I feel something similar but ..

    ...perhaps the Mondain Legacy Auto Upgrade will stop players from closing older accounts, like mine, that haven't been upgraded for years because upgrades for every expansion for every account over the years costs too much. I am now able to keep two very old obsolete accounts that I was about to terminate! I had stopped using the characters on those accounts, each with hard earned skills because they couldn't access all the dungeons and areas of the newer expansions. I kept them only for storage in classic houses and turned all characters into storage mules (backpacks and banks or extra stable slots for tamers)

    :next: all accounts will soon need SA Expansion upgrade!

    ... can't get ahead ... :wall:

    but .. Thanks EA. The ML upgrade to everyone's accounts is very NICE!

    Definitely.. that property no longer serves any purpose and should be removed.
     
  40. Is this supposed to allow us 6 or 7 character slots? Maybe I did, or didn't, do something correctly, but right now, I have 6 slots and no option to create a new character.

    Sorry Morgana... while they gave away all of the expansion content - one of the character slots was from an anniversary edition and not an expansion. The other is a "sold separately" account upgrade and was also not linked to an expansion. No extra slots with this give-away.

    No Shadow or Crystal tile sets either, they were from the 9th Anniversary box. So you'll still have 'grey' sections on house customisation.

    That's all fine, that will be one more reason to upgrade to SA, the 9th Anniversary box did come after ML as far I remember.

    - By way of dreamwalking, I too am concerned as to which path this particular weave, of the UO web, may take.
    By the light, I do hope it is for the better.
    By the oath rod, I do summarily lean towards this being for the better; yet I have been known to be wrong before.
