    Each Shard consists out of one main IP (which is the one being pinged by the login screen) and two others (Atlantic: three, TC1: one) within the same subnet you will be actually connected to. To ping ["ping x.x.x.x"] a server or get a trace route displayed ["tracert x.x.x.x"], please use the IP addresses below:

    The old, well-known DNS names like "shard.owo.com" will only resolve to the correct IP when explicitly listed below!

    (For servers with ICMP ping disabled, tracert will only show the route up to the second last hop; ping will result in no answer at all.) login.ultimaonline.com login.ultimaonline.com patch.uo.broadsword.com patch.uo.broadsword.com

    US East Coast [@ Amazon Web Services N. Virginia,] Atlantic (#0, "atlantic.owo.com") Lake Superior (#1, "lakesuperior.owo.com") Great Lakes (#3, "greatlakes.owo.com") Chesapeake (#6, "chesapeake.owo.com") Catskills (#8, "catskills.owo.com" - resolves to IP of Chesapeake!) Siege Perilous (#12) Legends (#14, "legends.owo.com") Test Center 1 (#54)

    US West Coast [@ Amazon Web Services N. California,] Pacific (#2) Baja (#5) Napa Valley (#7) Sonoma (#9) Lake Austin (#10) Origin (#45)

    Europe [@ Amazon Web Services Ireland,] Europa (#24, "europa.owo.com") Drachenfels (#25, "drachenfels.owo.com")

    Australia [@ Amazon Web Services Sydney,] Oceania (#19, "oceania.owo.com")

    East Asia [@ Amazon Web Services Tokyo,] Sakura (#16) Mugen (#18) Yamato (#20) Asuka (#21) Wakoku (#22) Hokuto (#23) Izumo (#27) Mizuho (#31) Formosa (#26) Arirang (#28) Balhae (#29)

    This is an unofficial list. All the IPs have been gathered using standard network monitor tools.

    How to get UOTrace and create an up-to-date Server list:
    • Download UOTrace from EA's FTP server:
    (you have to type this into the address bar of your browser as I can't enter a valid ftp:// link here)​
    • Create a new file named "server.cfg" in the same directory where you have saved the downloaded "uotrace.exe" and fill it with these lines:
    0=Arirang (,0
    1=Asuka (,0
    2=Atlantic (,0
    3=Baja (,0
    4=Balhae (,0
    5=Catskills (,0
    6=Chesapeake (,0
    7=Drachenfels (,0
    8=Europa (,0
    9=Formosa (,0
    10=Great Lakes (,0
    11=Hokuto (,0
    12=Izumo (,0
    13=Lake Austin (,0
    14=Lake Superior (,0
    15=Legends (,0
    16=Mizuho (,0
    17=Mugen (,0
    18=Napa Valley (,0
    19=Oceania (,0
    20=Origin (,0
    21=Pacific (,0
    22=Sakura (,0
    23=Siege Perilous (,0
    24=Sonoma (,0
    25=Test Center 1 (,0
    26=Wakoku (,0
    27=Yamato (,0
    • Run uotrace.exe: you should have an updated server list now, containing just the plain IPs and no .owo.com addresses anymore!

    I just need the nearest city to the server or the actual server location for me to choose the server nearest that point, I don't need IP Routings and all that jazz. For instance is Sonoma and other west coast servers near Los Angeles or nearer Silicon Valley or San Francisco, etc and is Atlantic and other East Coast servers near VA or ?.
