    There trying to think of an idea that betters the amazing 14th year reward...were the vets had a huge advantage over everyone else allowing them to hop all over the shards to shard for nowt!!!! awesome.....if u r a 14th year vet!!!....think the best they have come up withso far for the 15th vets is a ''server birth tree''..were the tree spawns a random olde server birth every month....yes would seem about right to me...[whatever]

    Typically - the new vet rewards seem to come out late October to Early November rather than at the actual anniversary. My guess is that we'll see them with the next publish.

    ok so its alright for their to be server birth items I dont have? or em event items I did not have a chance to get? or better yet lets let all new players have every item in the game so its fair to them ...sheesh I could understand your complaint if it was a uber weapon or something or a cloak of godly protection or something...so i claim BS

    The main thing they really need to change with regard to new player disadvantage should be the skill bonus based on account age but this has been debated to death. I think new players will be more concerned about their character's base disadvantage than some vet rewards. Of course new players might not even be aware of the skill disparity based on account age until its too late and I think more pvp based new players will be more likely to quit the game out right.....

    Now back to the the vet reward discussion regard shard transfer shields. The shield token is really limited compare to a store bought transfer token and 1 transfer per month is yet another limit. The purpose of vet reward is a way to show appreciation for supporting the game. The amount of money needed to maintain an account for that long is significant. Is the ability to transfer really that much of a disadvantage? I have used my shield transfer token once so far since it got released.......

    I personally think that transfer shield is a form of rebate for supporting the game for so long to be able to get a free transfer once a month. I do admit that it does offer a significant advantage if you are a shard trader that can fully benefit from the ability to relocate goods to gain the profit difference on items transferred. So I guess it ultimately comes down to if your UO end game is hording gold? Lets be honest, its is definitely about the amount of money you can save while converting item\gold to real cash (at least admit to it instead of repeated ranting of unfair)

    Veteran rewards for 15 years are scheduled for Publish 79:

    Letter from the Producer | Mythic Entertainment | Ultima Online

    We still don't know if the publish will also include new rewards for previous years.

    I'd like to see a bank sitting token. When double clicked it allows you to burn murder counts at triple rate and adds 1000 gold to your bank balance every minute that you bank sit. That would be awesome. I could get rich whilst I slept and worked. Maybe it could also place a colourful aura around you whilst activated so everyone could see you were an elite bank sitter. This reward is so powerful though so it should be for 15 year vets only ... its not for the plebs.

    I agree.
    Just found out, that my shard transfer token shield, which I planned to use first time after almost one year, is owned by an account, which has his fully developed 7 chars on the target shard. The other account would be old enough and still have free slots, but cannot use the shield due to this limitation. Anyway don't understand, why the token generator must be also account bound, wouldn't it have been enough to have the Shield age bound and only the tokens bound to the account who claimed them?
