    Publish 79 will be on Origin and Izumo after tomorrow’s maintenance. In an effort to get more feedback from all our players, we will be sending publishes to both Origin and Izumo shards.

    In addition to the Publish 79 notes the following changes have been made:
    • Artifacts obtained from the Exodus Encounter cannot have powder of fortification applied
    • The New Haven Mine has opened on the Southern Edge of the island
    • The trade window will no longer be empty when trading a tamed turkey

    Izumo?


    "Come visit Izumo.... Origin of the HK Shards"







    I imagine that's what it says in their travel Brochure.

    The entrance to the New Haven Mine is active on Izumo, but not yet on Origin.
    It's a nice small dungeon for new players, inhabited by the monsters evicted from Despise: the first level is full of Earth Elemental, while the second level is occupied by Lizardmen and Ogre Lords.

    Are the OL's there on Dungeon Ruleset as all the other new dungeons? I mean, will they drop lesser artifacts, greater artifacts, etc..?
    Or the same olle loot they had in Despise? Anyone checked yet? ;)

    Hopefully the old system else it will get overrun by people farming for the clean single mod items which will put new players off due to them being greedy and rude and 1 hit killing the mobs.

    It is indeed long-past time for a proper noob/new character dungeon, accessible easily via New Haven, many thanks.

    May I suggest that lizardmen should come before earth elementals, however.

    And, to my fellow players, may I suggest that assistance of benign neglect of new players or new characters in this dungeon is better for our hobby's long-term health than is running into the midst of, say, lizardmen and spamming earthquake while screaming "ha ha, noob."

    Please don't tell me that the latter cannot happen or has not happened. It can, and it has.

    Training dungeon don't need to attract vet players with elite loot. New players just after skill and later some vet player can hook them up with a dungeon runebook.

    Does this publish have anything to do with UOA throwing up errors when I log in?

    Most new patches makes UOA crazy. Being it is a 3rd party approved tool. Have to wait till they fix it. EC is the cure.

    I hope it's not instant. Instant respawn is annoying enough for fully decked out players (mostly because there is little time to loot), but for a newbie it'd be nasty.

    Agreed.
    The main issue with the New Haven Mine is that the Lizardmen and the Ogre Lords spawn in the same small room in Level 2.
    This means that the area is not very useful for new players trying to farm spined leather.

    Another minor issue is that a lot of the minecart tracks in Level 1 block movement.

    If someone places the new 15 yr shed, can they please drop me a PM with directions to see it? Pictures are great, but would like to see it first hand before I decide whether to choose it or not. Using TC makes me a bit paranoid with stuff like this.

    I placed one, looks cool. They can not be used unless your account is 15 years old (to put them down), any account age can use if they have access. They can be traded.

    I'm happy for the newbie love, but I still think they need much more. If current vets can't even start new chars on different shards without the old faction gear, what hope does a true newbie have? Maybe speed up the rate they can get a 60+ suit. Dungeons of the day with Doom type encounters could give them meaning and a function instead of just a liability.

    I have one on test, and a table, at the west gate of Trinsic, on the wall to the north.

    There is a chest in haven that you double click to get a bag of rewards

    The newbie dungeon for some reason has given me the most motivation I have had in a long time for the game. This weekend I am going to delete an old character (even though it will delay the new one getting xmas gifts till 30 days old) and going to make a a brand new guy. With no help from my other guys and work the new dungeon. A pure ninja type character or a pure mage, both with only newbie gear might be a lot of fun to go adventuring with.

    That often happens when they do mods, you just need to wait until Tugsoft fixes it. With the EC released and many people preferring the larger game window it has, I think Tugsoft doesn't keep as close an eye on UOAssist anymore. Download the EC client and see if you can still enjoy the game using it until UOAssist gets adjusted to work with the publish. I have both UI on my system.

    LvL 1 Earth Elly has the old loot system but I think I am getting better gains (Sword, Tact, Parry and Ant) on just a plain warrior. Not sure because it has been a very very long time since I did this.

    I did all the training in New Haven to skill lvl 50+, collected everything and sold it to NPCs then went to Luna and looked everywhere for a little better upgrade to my UO provided suit. Also used the cloth botls trick to get some extra gold. Believe it or not I ended up with a little over 20K gold. Farmed Earth Ellies just inside and collected everything to sell/upgrade suit and now my warrior is in the mid 60s. I wish they would have made this more like old Despise with 3 LvLs as I could have farmed Spined Leather to sell and upgraded faster. I have not gone to LvL 2 yet as I know the Orge Lords will kick my butt to try to farm Spined Leather.
    My wish list be4 this goes to all shards is:
    • LvL 1 Lizard Men
    • LvL 2 Ettins and Earth Ellies
    • LvL 3 Orges and Orge Lords only in a side area
    • Allow the training gain system to work in this Dungeon.
    • An NPC Healer just outside the Dungeon for rezing.

    Iz has a lot more players/shops than Origin so this was a good idea.
