Hello all, I am going to make another comeback attempt into the game. I have been possibly the ideal UO player over the last 5+ years, I pay my monthly fee and never log in. I have made several attempts to come back, but each time I grow frustrated and quit. I have an old account, with some semi-developed characters--my skills are upper level (plenty above gm, but not a lot over 110), but I don't have much gold to throw around and my equipment is where I typically am deficient. I have tried on two or three occasions to come back with the mindset of a new player, and start playing the game again from scratch. My reasoning is to gain the perspective of a brand new person coming into the game, and see how accessible the game is for a real newbie with no established friends to lean on. My conclusion is that you have to be insane to start this game on your own and make any real strides--the gap between new player and advanced (where most of the action occurs, of course) is insurmountable on your own. So, I am going to try beseeching the players on the only shard I have ever really played. Tell me how a returning player, with an outdated account (skill- and playstyle-wise) and no stockpile of gold is supposed to get back into the game. I am not trying to squeeze my way into a bunch of freebies or handouts, but I want to know how others think a player such as me should work his own way back into the game. At my disposal, I have an average sampire (pretty good skills, I have several of the suggested artis, but it not the crafted pieces needed to round out the suit), a crafter (120 tailor, ~115 smith, gm mining, almost 90 lumberjacking, and decent tinkering and carpentry), a pedestrian tamer (I think around 85 taming), and my "mage"--115 magery and eval, gm inscription, but I also dump gm fishing on him. The tamer and fisherman both have 100 lmc suits, but both have crap resists. My other characters are basically skill holders--imbuing, an extremely unfinished t-hunter, poisoning, etc. Which character should I focus on, and how should I move forward?
