    We are aware of the issue with the holiday gifts. We will get that resolved as soon as possible.

    There is also a known issue with the female gargoyle overhead chat appearing below the avatar. We are still working on a fix for that as well. I apologize to all you gargoyle vixens for the inconvenience.

    The boura are really pale in the EC.. Albino-like in fact.. Most of the detail is lost in the glare.

    If these things are staying in, they should give a small DCI buff since they are armored...

    Why make an ethy have anything else apart from being a mount in your pack that cannot be killed?? Too much WOW in UO?

    You mean, as it is now, the 13th Year Veteran Reward "armoured" Boura is merely an "eye candy" mount ??

    It does no good to its owner ?

    And this is supposed to be the Veteran Reward for an account that has been loyal and active to Ultima Online for 13 long years ?? Wow, I am speechless........

    Vet rewards are not supposed to give an advantage in a game balance way.

    I admit to some surprise that there is only one 13th year choice, there have been several in times past, however it is no surprise that this gives no in game advantage. There would be an outcry if it did.

    1 year Stat Caps gives Vets an Advantage over Others.

    1-4 year Skill Caps Give Vets an Advantage over Others.


    And those are within the first 4 years. (Not 1000% loyal proven dedicated players even)
     
  17. Vaelix

    Vaelix Guest

    Here let me put it this way, From an Advantage perspective..

    The 1 Year +5 Stat/Skill Cap increase gives more advantage than the 13 Year Vet Reward.

    (Granted that the Cap increases arnt Chosen rewards, they are still "Veteran Rewards" As they are "Awarded" due to being a 1 year Vet.)

    Aka..

    1 Year Vet Reward :)lick:)

    *Random note* Hell I might even be wrong and the Stat cap is a 6th month thing (I cannot remember)

    Great..... now how about fixing gargoyles so they can dye their horns?

    How about allowing them to use ML Hairdye on them?

    I see the point of not being able to "change" your horns... but changing color might be nice.

    To be honest, the armoured boura is actually quite well rendered. In both CC and EC. It looks like a baby boura.

    I think it's the only mount so far that actually has a saddle.

    So I'll definitely be getting one.




    Now, regarding magic reflect, did they push ahead with the -10 phys cap?

    i think the boura mount is the cutest thing i've seen in a long time *happy squeak*

    i was happy to see how small it is, and also how small in the pack.

    I have a serious question Supreem if you feel like answering it. Why is it that almost always patches are released with known bugs still in them? I've been waiting over a year now for magic arrow nether bolt to be fixed...I don't think a few more days would hurt. Just something I've never understood...

    Simply because there is most likely no answer that doesn't present the company in a negative light. (Lol)

    Rose Rug - What the frick? Now im all for quarterback sneaks but I hear the Rose Bowl committee only leased it to you for 89days.

    Dolphin Rug - Did you just steal a snap shot? I hear flipper is ticked and wants his picture back!

    Skull Rug - I like it

    The first two rugs are off....They just don't look like something that should be in this game. I suggest darkening the colors.

    Corrupted Crystal Portal
    - Okay it looks like my magical mage just took a massive [Censor] on the floor. As if Ultima Online doesn't have enough tiny little objects that we have to pick up. Lay off the special hue stuff "We voted no pet dyes for a reason!!!!"

    Ridable Boura - LOVE IT!!! LOVE IT!! LOVE IT!! Except... What the hell is up with you guys and small things with ugly colors? This isn't fricken Lego Ultima Online. Stop making all this tiny stuff, your game is not that HD.

    Those rugs look like an amateur graphic artist made some free art for The Sims game. I expect more from the Devs at this point, especially when they give us lovely items like the grandfather clocks. Before this publish goes live, please please please fix those horrid rugs. I would love to claim them because of their function (the item drops) but I would have to display them in a locked, pitch-dark dungeon at the bottom of my house. Do us a favor and quit looking through the clip art (I've seen that rose many times in MS Word ok?) and start hiring actual artists (you can find many on Deviant Art). As for the ridable boura, couldn't you come up with a better 13th year reward? We have enough mounts in the game already.

    You are seriously making Vets pick East or South? Wow I hope no one changes their house look and find they wanted a South after picking an East.

    I like my fake sig better :p ... baby boura! hmm yeah it is very tiny compared to a normal boura. well, it's cool in it's own way but I wanted a hulking beast.

    I'd say the rider bounces too often for the stride, and when it runs, the boura doesn't look like it's really going as fast as it is. but cute graphic. ugh, cute :p I want a beast! :p

    :D I guess the rider's height has to be consistent with existing mounts.

    I find these quite cute and I'm jealous I can't ride one yet *sad face*

    The only issue I had on test was trying to place carpet on a small home. An 8x8 outside of Minoc was not big enough to place. A house that small is not commonplace anymore but it should be a warning before picking.

    Whatever our preference, we can still highlight it and be respectful about it. The devs turned back the dial on a few issues with lockdowns and such because of that.

    Very cute, shame I'll never get to ride it :(
     
  48. Can it be rehued solid/ethy?
     
  49. I got the Vet reward gump today after patching, showing that I can pick two rewards. I shouldn't be able to have any picks until next month. Do we all get two "free" picks or did I just mature early?
