Endless Journey replaced the more traditional 14 day free trial in Spring 2018, publish 99. This option to play without subscription is available not only to newly created accounts but also to veteran accounts that have been inactive for a minimum of 120 days.
So what can an Endless Journey account do?
Characters may be created on all shards including Test Center, with a limit of 2 per shard except Siege Perilous and Mugen, where only one character per account is the norm. On veteran accounts all pre-existing characters may be accessed. The normal skill cap of 720 applies, exactly as a subscribed account, also EJ accounts may use Scrolls of Alacrity, Power, Stat, and Transcendence. Players may transfer characters to other shards by purchasing a token from Ultima Store, to which EJ accounts have full access.
EJ characters can be friended to a public house, but have no access to the contents of the house with the exception of wall safes and some locked down Veteran rewards such as the Smith Press, Crystal Portal; if access is set appropriately, such houses are not a safe logout area. They may also use other veteran rewards, Vendor Search, shop from Player Vendors and Auction Safes, and purchase from Magincia Bazaar.
Safe logout may be achieved at Inns and Taverns. While Endless Journey accounts do not have bank storage, they do have currency, secure and transfer accounts. Use the command ‘bank’ when standing at the town bank to open the bank actions menu. Gold can be deposited using the menu option ‘Make Deposit into Currency Account’, this will give a targeting cursor to click on piles of coins in your back pack; also, in the case of veteran accounts, any checks you may have left in your character’s pack. There is no bank action menu item to withdraw gold, but that can be achieved by the command ‘withdraw [amount]’. Further information is found on the page ‘Money‘. EJ accounts have a limited bank of 20 items (rising to a possible to 28 if both High Seas Booster and the Origin Store Storage Increase or 7th character slot & storage increase have been applied to the account), use the bank actions menu to add items to the bank box, single click an item to remove it to your back pack. Veteran accounts with existing bank boxes containing more than this number will be able to view the entire contents.
Endless Journey characters may collect BoDs (one per day), can use pack animals, can donate to, and claim from, the three Community Collections (Britannia Library, Vesper Museum or Moonglow Zoo) and Clean up Britannia, can gather iron ore and plain wood.
Endless Journey accounts are able to pickup IDOC loot, but not until a 30-minute cooldown period has passed.
