Frequently Asked Billing Questions:
Q. Can I transfer characters from one Account to another Account?
A. At this time, transferring characters between accounts is not a service that is provided. For now, that question is best forwarded to our Development team via the Feedback Form located here.
Q. What is the difference between an EA/Origin Account, a Master Account, and a Product Account?
A. An EA Account is the account is the account/email you registered with EA on their Origin Website. You would only use your EA/Origin Account to log into the Account Management at http://accounts.eamythic.com.
A Master Account, is an overall account name that is created to hold all of your Product accounts, and is used to link your accounts to your EA/Origin Account.
A Product Account is the term we use to reference your actual game account, this would be the account name that you use to log in to the game itself.
Q. I purchased a code from Origin and it didn’t work!
A. The first thing to be aware of, is that codes can be input in two different ways. On the Account Management page, and In-Game. (Some codes will require you to put them in both places).
Any codes you’ve purchased that affect your account outside of the game ( such as theme packs, or extra character slots ), will need to be input on the Account Management page at accounts.eamythic.com and then using the “Activate a Key” button.
Any code you’ve purchased that affects you In-Game ( Any code that actually grants you an item ), will need to be used In-Game using the “Help” menu, and then selecting “Promotional Code”.
If you are still experiencing issues with your code, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the code you were given, and the receipt you received from Origin and they will assist you as best they can.

Q: Why is my account not eligible for Endless Journey?
A: Accounts which are in good standing (i.e. have not been previously terminated) and have been closed for more than 120 days will automatically be flagged for the Endless Journey. The below list outlines why a particular account may not be eligible for the Endless Journey program:
- The account has not been closed for more than the 120 day required period.
- The account is currently or was previously terminated.
- The account was never subscribed. Only former retail accounts (non-trials) are eligible for the Endless Journey. Trial accounts created prior to the Endless Journey update will first need to be subscribed in order to be eligible for future Endless Journey access.
Regarding those account owners who have gone through our Dispute department to reinstate a previously terminated account, please be advised that these accounts will not initially be eligible for Endless Journey status. Reinstated accounts will need to wait the requisite 120 day period once reinstated or choose to subscribe if immediate access is desired. Should you feel that an account should be eligible for Endless Journey and the account does not fall under the aforementioned restrictions then please contact our Billing department at email@example.com. We will review each request on a case-by-case basis.

A. At the top of your screen, you will see a button labeled “Help”. When you select this, you will be given several options to obtain assistance. The second one you see, “My character is physically stuck”, will teleport you out of the area you are in, into a town.
Q. How do I report another player for a violation?
A. Violation reports should be submitted under either the VERBAL HARASSMENT or PHYSICAL HARASSMENT categories. When you use these categories, you are given several options to select a target.
1) “Target Involved Players” provides a target cursor which allows you to select the player or players involved by simply clicking on them.

4) “Type Player ID’s of Involved Players” will allow you to include the unique player ID number which displays next to their character name in chat channels.
This will work even if the player is in another area, or has logged out.
Q. Some of my resistances are bugged in the negatives!
A. Should you find your resistances to be incorrect, please first remove all of your characters equipment and make sure they have NO buffs applied.
If you still find that your resistances are displayed incorrectly, please contact a GM.
Q. I placed a new house, and now my old house is condemned! What do I do?
A. Unfortunately, when you placed a new home it will condemn any other homes that you own. At this time, you may only have ONE house on ANY SHARD. The only exception to this is that you may own a second home on Siege Perilous.
The only way to save your now condemned home, would be to trade it to another player whom does not own another house.
Q. An item has fallen under my house and I can’t retrieve it!
A. The first thing you will want to try, is to turn on your Circle of Transparency to see if you can actually locate the item under your house and reach it.
If you cannot reach the item, please contact a GM as quickly as possible, and they will attempt to recover the item for you.
You can turn on your Circle of Transparency in the Classic Client by going to your Paper Doll and selecting the “Options” button. Then select the UO Symbol on the right hand side ( The second one up from the bottom ) and then click the “Use circle of transparency” checkbox.
In the Enhanced Client you can hit the ESC button, and then “User Settings”. On the “Graphics” tab you will find the “Use Circle of Transparency” checkbox.
Q. I ordered a pack from the Origin Store but I didn’t receive my In-Game items!
A. In the case of any codes purchased from the Origin Store that are meant to give you an item to use In-Game ( and token, or deed, etc ) please make sure you have first used the Code by going to the “Help” menu, and then selecting the “Promotional Code” button.
Once used, this will place the items in your current characters backpack, or if there is no room, it will place the items in your characters bank.
( In the case of the Rustic Theme Packs distillery, please be aware that the Distillery is a CRAFTED item, it is not granted simply by using the code. It can be crafted with 90 Tinkering. )
If the code comes back as invalid please copy and paste the code in once again, then backspace to remove the last letter or number and put it back in. This removes the extra space that deems the code invalid.
Q. My Account Age is wrong!
A. Please be aware that an account will only age while it is actively subscribed. If you have recently reactivated an account, were a trial, or were participating in any of our “Return to Britannia” campaigns, you would not have received any additions to your age.
Q. I have followed my treasure map, only to find the treasure under a house! How do I get my treasure?
While it is unfortunate that such a thing has occurred, the treasure map itself does have a default reset. If you find you are unable to reach a treasure chest once you have located it, if you give the map 30 days, it will reset and you will be able to go out searching for a new, hopefully more accessible chest.
Q. Ive lost my ship! How do I find it again?
A. If you find yourself having lost your keys, or your runes to your ship, please contact a GM as quickly as possible so that they can attempt to locate your ship and bring you back to it. The longer you wait, the more of a chance your ship will decay.
Q. My stats will not gain!
A. The skill gain system can at times make you feel like your skills are not gaining at all. As the higher your skills are, the longer it will take for them to actually gain points. The best place to find more information on how the system itself work, would be in the following link.
Q: I purchased a code from Origin but it didn’t work!
A: The first thing to be aware of is that codes can be input in two different places; the Account Management page and in-game (via the Help menu). Codes that must be activated in-game are typically items (dyes, pets, tokens, soulstones etc).
Account management-only codes are account enhancers (storage, character slots, timecards, game expansions). Only the Rustic and Gothic theme packs must be entered both in-game and at the account center.
When you enter a code, particularly via copy/paste, make sure you backspace after copying it to remove any blank spaces as these will prevent the code from being accepted. If you continue to experience issues with applying your code, contact Billing support via firstname.lastname@example.org with the code in question AND the receipt of purchase from Origin so they may assist you further.
Q: My house teleporters don’t work!
A: Should you find that your alchemical symbols no longer transport you between floors, you may reset or change your house foundation in order to fix the issue.
Q: Why can’t I trade my house to another person?
A: If you are unable to trade a house (and both players are under the house sign and not young), the player receiving the house may not have the required account updates in order to own said house. This typically occurs when a house has full storage upgrades present and the recipient’s account has no storage upgrades applied. The recipient will need to upgrade their storage in order to receive the house. Storage upgrades are obtained via the following ways (to a maximum of 60%):
Mondain’s Legacy expansion (20%)
High Seas pack (20%)
7th Character slot and Storage (20%)
Housing and Bank Storage Upgrade (20%)
Q: Why can’t I add my house storage upgrade code to my account?
A: There are more than one storage upgrade options available via the Origin store, each of which offers a 20% increase. Once one of these codes are applied to an account, house storage cannot be increased using a similar code. The types are as follows, and only one can be applied to an account:
7th Character slot and Storage
Housing and Bank Storage Upgrade
Q: How do I transfer characters?
A: Character Transfer allows players to move a character from one shard to another by using a Character Transfer Token ($19.99 through Origin store) or by using a Shield Transfer Token. Character Transfer Service is not available on Siege Perilous and Mugen.
The following will transfer with the character:
- Custom titles
- Monster points
- Quest status
- Equipped items
- Items in backpack
- Items in bank
- Stabled pets
- Following pets (N/A for Shield Transfer Tokens)
The following will not transfer with the character:
- Guild status
- Faction status
- Companion and Volunteer status
You must also be in a safe location to begin transfer and not be mounted. If you are taking any pets along (Carriers) make sure to say “all follow me” or they could end up left behind (though they can be left in the stables if they are not carrying any items). Any gold you wish to take must be in your character transfer account else it will not travel with you.

Throughout the remainder of this Agreement, the Ultima Online service (including the Web Site) will be referred to as the “Service”, if you have purchased the Ultima Online game CD-ROM published by Electronic Arts Inc. it will be referred to as the “CD” and the software programs contained on the CD and provided to you through the Service will be referred to as the “Software”. Electronic Arts grants to you a limited, non-exclusive license to use the CD, the Software and the Service subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and the additional terms set forth in the documentation of the CD.
