The second part of Endless Journey is now on TC1. Please check out the updated notes in the Wiki
. Special thanks to everyone who has helped test the restrictions, your feedback is really important! Please join the conversation on our UO.com forums
or send in
your feedback! We are looking at a world wide release of Publish 99 in the beginning of April depending on how smoothly things go with our upcoming release to Origin and other early shards as well as feedback from players.
I would like to address a few emails that I have received regarding Endless Journey restrictions,
1. Due to feedback, we are going to allow EJ accounts on TC1 however you will not be able to character copy with an Endless Journey account.
2. Currently Endless Journey accounts are not eligible for Power Scroll drops, this was done per feedback we received from players. Remember though, this does not mean Endless Journey players cannot otherwise obtain power scrolls. For example my player was in a guild that did a lot of Champ Spawns. At the end of each spawn we dropped all the scrolls in a chest, and we used the Lucky Dealer NPC and rolled for the scrolls and items collected. This could be great for guilds that enjoy doing Champ Spawns and are looking to grow their ranks with returning Endless Journey players. Players on Endless Journey accounts can also steal power scrolls and loot them from the corpses of their victims!
3. We will be allowing EJ accounts to log into Siege.
4. We know there has been a lot of discussion related to the amount of storage that Endless Journey accounts will have access to. We are still actively developing means of allowing Endless Journey accounts access to some level of secure storage. These options will not be part of the initial release of Endless Journey and may come at a later time.
On a different note I need to say something about Customer Service replacing house addon items that have been broken by raising them with the house decoration tool. We are fully aware you guys like to be creative and reinvent the items into new and exciting designs. But please understand these items will not be replaced by CS if you decide to break them.
Please also remember when we release Endless Journey we will be taking actions against multiboxing users. We will be posting once a month on UO.com the number of warnings/bannings actioned against violators so you are aware we are catching people. We will need your assistance with this and we are asking that you page on the players you are witnessing using multiboxing. Just know no one will be coming back to you with any type of response though as it is our policy to not discuss specific actions taken against offenders outside the information we will be releasing on UO.com.
We are aware of some issues with Pre-Patched Dragons related to pet training, we are working on a fix for this issue. Please be patient and keep an eye on UO.com for updates
If all goes well we are hoping to gift Stygian Abyss to all our players by the end of the week. If anything changes we will let you know.
We do have a nice Springtime gift for everyone but it will not be available until sometime after Publish 99 goes world wide. Keep an eye on UO.com for when the item is available.
See you in Britannia,
