What comes with expansion Samurai Empire?

    I am an old player and considering to join back britania, can anyone please answer me some questions which probably were history to most of you?
    What comes with the expansion Samurai Empire?
    Any gift or item? Game time or game code?

    I usually see there are 30 days or 45 days free trial inside the anniversary packages, is it only applicable to new account? Can old player use it as regular game time?

    Thanks a lot.

    1) Probably you don't actually want the Samurai Empire expansion because it's not the latest one. Mondain's Legacy is the latest expansion and it includes all previous expansions including Samurai Empire.

    2) The gifts included in the Samurai Empire (Green Soulstone) and Mondain's Legacy (Charger of the Fallen) expansion packages were for pre-order only and are no longer available. You can buy them from the uogamecodes site though :D

    3) Most of the gifts included in anniversary packages, instead, are still available. For example, with the latest box released in the US (9th Anniversary collection), you will get the 6th character slot, a personal attendant, new housing tiles and crystal and shadow furniture. You won't get the Anniversary collection items anymore, though (but they are pretty common to find since they were handed out to everybody for free last year...). The 9th Anniversary package also includes all UO expansions (up to and including Mondain's Legacy), and it's actually cheaper than the Mondain's Legacy code.

    4) In any case, the free game time included in packages is only for new accounts - it doesn't apply to the upgrade code for old accounts

    5) In conclusion, if you can still find it in stores the best option to upgrade your account is to buy a 9th Anniversary Box. If you can't find it, the next best option is to buy a Mondain's Legacy upgrade code from uogamecodes:

    Thanks a lot for the information.
    I am interesting on the Samurai Empire because I saw it in a store and was at a very attractive price.
    I am wondering whether there is game time and gift applicable. So I can pay almost the same as I pay for a 30days gamecode but get a little bit more (especially is what I can't buy if it's a gift only seen in expansion package)

    can I ask something further? I saw this on EA FAQ, which is the thing comes with 8th anniversary package

    One upgrade code redeemable for the following:
    * One of 8 rare and valuable gifts commemorating the 8th anniversary of UO
    * One FREE Advanced Character
    * One FREE Shard Transfer
    * One FREE 6th Character Slot
    * One Blue Soulstone (redeemable for a LIMITED TIME, offer expiring December 13th, 2005)

    does the upgrade code redeemable for each of the 5 items? or just either one of them?

    I do need a shard transfer code and 6th character slot code.........

    My friend bought a 9th age pack and she has got the 6th character slot after upgraded, but I don't see there is a 6th character slot code in 9th age pack on EA. Does 9th age have it???

    ah........ too many questions, thanks a lot.................................

    Btw if you buy a Legacy Token, the description on UOGameCodes reads:

    "Have you missed out on premium items that were offered in years past? The Legacy Token will allow you to choose one item from a selection of premium items that have been offered throughout the years of UO such as The Hooded Shroud of Shadows, The Charger of the Fallen or the Green Soulstone."

    It eludes that there are more items to choose from than those listed three. But actually, your choice is limited to exactly one of those three.
