The Town Crier

The role of the lowly Town Crier was greatly expanded in publish 99 (Spring 2018); using the “news” speech command or double clicking a town crier NPC brings up not one item of interest, but the entire Town Cryer newspaper. Town crier NPCs can be found at banks, starting inn locations, and the Eodon moongate. They are updated in real time with the latest information. Non-NPC town criers (Sherry the Mouse & Coral the Owl) are updated once on server up if those objects are locked down or secure. Town Cryer News & Quests The “News” section of the Town […]

The Trade Window

Face to face trading between players is carried out through use of the trade window. A trade may be initiated by dropping the object you are trading onto the character’s head, onto the life bar (Enhanced Client only) or by using the context menu.

Armor Choice

As with all things in Ultima Online there’s an element of ‘give and take’ in selecting the right armor for your character. Crafted suits of armor may conform to a particular style, while characters who choose to build a suit from monster loot are more likely to select an item for the magical properties and resistances it offers, resulting in a mix of styles. Mages, Necromancers & Spellweavers The choice here appears relatively simple, these skills need mana to cast and the most obvious way to replenish that mana is through meditation skill. Armor made from, or containing metal or […]

Dungeon Chests

  Amost everyone who has been to a dungeon in Trammel or Felucca will have noticed the chests, crates and barrels stacked neatly against the walls or scattered around the floors. Most of them are permanent fixtures, ie static chests and will always be found in exactly the same location, never moving or vanishing; but some are ‘spawning chests’ which come and go at intervals. These chests are widely used for the training of the skills Lockpicking, Detect Hidden and Remove Trap. Static Chests Some are never locked. Others are and may have up to three traps, depending on how […]
