Dynamic Treasures Event

New dynamically created Treasures events can now be used for Global and EM events.  The Dynamic Treasures events will allow both the UO Dev Team & UO Event Moderator team to create customized Treasures events (similar to Treasures of Tokuno) without the back-end work these events traditionally require.

  • Dynamic Treasures events function just like our previous treasures events – defeat creatures to collect minor artifacts that can be turned in for rewards!
  • Dynamic Treasures creatures have a chance to spawn as Paragon.
  • Dynamic Treasures creatures will be identified with a unique item property.
  • Dynamic Treasures minor artifact drops are subject to diminishing returns when fighting the same creature.

Dynamic Champion Spawns

New dynamically created Champ Spawns can now be used for Global and EM events.  The Dynamic Champion spawns will allow both the UO Dev Team & UO Event Moderator team to create customized champ spawns without the back-end work these encounters traditionally require.

  • Dynamic Champ spawns function just like a normal champ spawn – defeat increasingly more difficult creatures until the Champion boss spawns to receive a reward!
  • Challenge the Champion in 26 New Champ Locations!
  • Customizable participation and top contributor rewards for each Champion Encounter.
  • Champion boss spawn scales based on player density, up to two Champions spawning per encounter.
  • Dynamic Champion Spawns do not drop any scrolls.

Dynamic Boss Mob Generator

New dynamically created boss mobs can now be used for Global and EM events.  The Dynamic Boss Mob Generator will allow both the UO Dev Team & UO Event Moderator Team to create customized boss mobs without the back end work these encounters traditionally require.

  • Expanded selection of AIs and stat options to make Boss Mob Encounters feel more exciting and dynamic.

Story Elements

A new suite of items have been developed to enhance immersion and bring your character deeper into their journeys throughout Britannia.  Story element items are Shard Bound.

  • Lore Book – Every good adventure begins with an even better story.  With 15 protagonists, 16 antagonists, and 17 locations available the possibilities for characters and setting are endless!

  • Quest Clues  –  Quest  clue items have been very popular when introduced in our past events.  We’ve revamped the display and added more options to customize these to create more immersive quest clue items.

  • Story Scroll – Sometimes a book doesn’t quite fit the mood and a quick message needs to be shown.  Story scrolls are an easy way to share information about the story.

  • Conversation Oracle – We’ve revamped the interface for interacting with NPC oracles.  Instead of dealing with the limited amount of text that could previously be barked we now display conversation text in a gump, along with beautiful new illustrations.
