Will someone please break down classic shards for me?

    I can't remember when I came to UO. I believe it was somewhere around T2A. This is many years ago, and everything is kinda meshed together. I want to be informed and make sure I'm talking with the correct information when I see posts talking about classic shards.

    1) Launch, September '97
    2) T2A (I'm assuming this is the same as Pre UO:R?)
    3) Pre UO:R (Again, I'm assuming this is the same as T2A?)
    4) UO:R
    5) Pub 15
    6) Pub 16
    7) Pub 16 NO POWERSCROLLS
    8) Pre AoS

    I think I hit most of what I have seen concerning time periods Pre AoS.... would anyone be so kind as to list the main difference between the time periods? Like I said, I came in somewhere around #2 or #3 and cause of the time that has passed, everything is kind of meshed together in my memory. So how bout it? Anyone wanna put in definitions for 1-8?

    Uo.com has all the patch notes, cause there is a lot!

    some of the big things were:

    4) brought Tram
    6) revamped pretty much the entire game
    8) turned us into a WoW clone


    My complaint is #8.



    http://update.uo.com/design_424.html I think that's the link to Pub 16 notes, it's huuuuge.

    It's a shard where everytime you kill something, the corpse reads "a corpse of Evocare"
