So I got curious and reactivated my account. I haven't puttered around in UO since Samurai Empire and there are quite a few changes. I had a few questions that I was hoping people could help me with: * What's the most populated city on the Great Lakes realm? Britain? Luna? I didn't see too many people around when I was in Brit yesterday. Real people anyway. For some reason a bunch of npcs with (Hatred) attached to their names kept trying to kill me though. What's that all about? I'm sure it was coincidental with my return, but it felt like a strange welcome back . * Where to get good gear? I checked out UO Auction but it was completely empty. Back in the day people would list literally thousands of items there. Is there some sort of in game replacement? Or do I just need to go vendor to vendor to find stuff? * Following up on that, I assume gold inflation is worse if anything. Will a few million buy me any decent arties/gear for my dusty old paly? * Are there still pick up groups that go to Doom? I went to Ish to kill some dragons and random paragons and stuff... but it would be fun to do something with people. * I wish I hadnt let my house decay, but I guess it's been so long that anything I owned would only have been limited use. Except for that soul stone... I don't suppose there's any way to recover that? Are they available as rewards? I think I still have some vet rewards i never used. Anyhow, hope to see folks around. I never thought Id log back in but it was actually pretty fun to play last night.
