World projections

icon

Whole gaming World on the server is divided in two projections. Moving between them is possible via special transition points located in the center of the four Capitals. Red pentagram transfers character into battle projection while green leads into a peaceful one. The player starts in the peaceful projection by default.
 

Battle projection of the world is the ordinary UO world, here players can attack each other; players’ opportunities isn’t limited by any artificial restrictions. Also, the Guard Post WoF event holds here.

Peaceful projection’s limited with several restrictions:
— players cannot damage each other;
— players can’t be looted;
— players can’t use thievery skills;
— players can’t dig up any ore higher than Meteor while mining in pits;
— only Premium Account owners can harvest high ore veins and higher trees;
— all characters at non-premium accounts can’t exceed 7th level character damage limit;
— enemy guards will not attack player first. That gives possibility to visit enemy-controlled territory. Peace projection of the world is perfect place to level-up players below 8th level. Besides, peaceful side will be vital part of quests and story implementation. Level 8+ player without premium account bonuses can produce higher gain while in battle side until becomes robbed or killed, of course.

Weapon and Armor Enchanting scrolls

icon

Quite common magic scrolls which you can find in drop. With this scrolls you can raise damage of your weapon or protection of your armor. If you will enchant your item - enchanting power will stay for always. You are able to enchant your item more than once - for raising items power. Such combination of enchanting can raise your items power - also it can destroy it completely.

Chance to enchant item more than one time :
— 50% to success if current item enchant level is below +5.
— [50−({current refine level}−5)*2.5]% to success if current refine level’s above +5.

    Caution! Never enchant items more than once if you are not ready to lose it.

Skill books

icon

You can find some skill books in loot, those books are named like “About Archery level 3”. Specified skill will be improved after reading book.

You are able to read same level and skill book just once. The formula of skill adding is related to the general skill growth formula, so there is not a big difference on which skill level you will read it. The ammount of rasing skill is based on books level.

    Caution: It is not recommended to use the book when your skill is almost capped. In that case your skill will be raised to your maximal skill cap (depending on your level), and book will be used inefficiently.

In-game time. Veteran's cape

icon

In the case of finding a character in the game, he slowly gains experience, in addition - his overall playing time increases. General game time you can see in the "Help" menu by clicking on "Character status" column in "Stats" section ingame. A character who has level 12 and 3000 hours of total online time has the right to receive a Veteran's Cloak.

This is a rare colored cloak, which gives +15 armor, +15 Strength, Dexterity and +30 Intellect. Cloak can not be lost when you die, it does not break, and only his owner can wear it. There is an option to change your Veteran's cloak color speaking with Reinar - this option costs 1000 Gods Stones , and Reinar will give you Random color for your cape (colors are stacking, so you can change it for free on all the colors that you've bought before)

For receiving this reward, you must use the .veteran command ingame.

Arena For Fun

icon

In this arena, a player can fight with any other player, including comrades from same side of the war.
Character enters the arena with his full equipment and his own characteristics.
In case of death, your character will be teleported to Altair, without loosing your equipment.

Arena for Fun portal is located in the lower left part (South) of the central square of Altair.
The exit portal is in the center of the Arena for Fun.
In the right upper (Northern) part of the arena there is a portal to the old AFF arena, with the same applyed rules, just the battlefield is more limited and the landscape is different.
The main arena is built with the participation of the most active PvP players on the server, it has forest, field, mountain elements, ponds.

Dungeon treasure chests

icon

In most of the dungeons of the world, you can find treasure chests.
To open the chest, you need a key that can be looted from the monsters in the same dungeon.

    Among other things, in such treasures you can find rare books, alchemical recipes, precious stones and rare metals. There is a rumor - that in the deepest dungeons there were the things kept, the secrets of which are now lost.
    To open the lock of such a treasure chest, you will need to get one of the ancient keys. You are able to obtain suck a key from guardians of the treasure inhabiting the dungeon. However, this task may not be so simple, because the more valuable the treasure is, the better it is protected.
    So, treasures guarded by weak creatures will be a good tool for beginning adventurers, and those that are hidden in the depths of the deepest caves can become a welcome prey for the rallied detachments of treasure hunters.

Treasure maps

icon

You are able to find "treasure maps" in the world, - records pointing to the places where once the treasures were buried much appreciated by their owners. In such treasures you can find gold, precious metals and jewelry, magic scrolls and even ancient artifacts.

    Such treasure maps are rare. They can be hunted from monsters, also they could be found in Outpost Chests. 
    However, it is difficult to name them as map - their authors took care that not everyone can understand these schemes, and the complexity of encryption depends on the value of the treasure, where the map can lead. To understand the records found and to turn them into a real guide to treasures, you will need the cartography skill. If you dont have enought skill to encode the map, you can always turn to cartographers for help, but remember - this service is not cheap.
    If you have decoded treasure map, to find treasure chest will not be a problem.
    To dig a found chest with a treasure, you need a shovel. But be careful together with the chest you will dig up monsters who protect will the treasure at the cost of life - you can only get treasure by killing them.
    After you kill monsters, you will be able trying to open the Treasure chest. To pick up locks - you will need lockpicks and skill lockpicking. As higher the level of the map is - as harder to open the chest.

Spheres of Journeys

icon

This world has many magical spheres, connected with each other they form a network of  Spheres of Journeys. Those artifacts allow users to travel at unimaginable speeds. Teleportation from one sphere to another takes only a few seconds.

     You could find these spheres in all big cities, also at some other notable places and dungeons.

     NOTE: Spheres locations are unchangeable. Which is dangerous, as there is always a chance someone might prepare an ambush for you. Remember this when travelling in the battle projection of the world.

Vendors and Marketplace

icon

There is a market in the game, it is located on the island of Altair and is designed for 165 vendor cases.

Here you can get almost everything what you want (that you can't buy from normal NPC Vendors). You can view the products and prices not just in a game - also on web site, using Web Market.

   Lets see the option that you can sell items by yourself. First of all you need to search empty vendor case in market. By dobleclicking on the vendor case you can set your NPC Vendor, it will cost you 2.000.000gp. Beside the vendor settin cost,  you must pay 500.000gp him for 10 days of work. You can also clothe your vendor to your taste, left mouse clicking on him, and taking "show paperdoll" option in showed up gump.

   Vendors management is carried out through the menu (double click on the vendor), in which he offers us:
    — Bank Open;
    — Show the list of goods;
    — Open the chest with the goods;
    — Recieve profit;
    — Pay vendor a sallary.

To add items for selling, you should choose the fourth menu line "open the chest with the goods" and dragging in it the items you want to sell. After you drag item to chest you should type the price in game pressing Enter button after. You will be able to change the cost of item using "price ********" command (intead of "*" you should type the price),  and clicking on the item with target that pops up. Vendor will inform you when the item price is changed.

Important! Setting prices and viewing the chest with the goods must be done by setting the game character close to the vendor. Dont forget to check the prices of set goods and pay vendors salary in time.

House system

icon

If your bank can hold any weight more - Place a house!

As a house owner, you have many features available, such as: option to change the locks, lock down items, adding friends, transfer ownership etc.

The first thing you will need, is a house placement tool   housetool This item is blessed, you can buy it from architect NPC in the Carpenter shop for 1150gp.

House Placement Rules

To place a house, you must be sure that you have found a good opened spot for your house that is free of major obstructions such as trees, throughout the entire footprint of the house; small rocks and plants can be built over. The ground where you wish to place your house must be flat, as uneven ground will usually prevent the placement of a house. Houses cannot be placed in a guard zone, or any region that is zoned for no housing. There must also be space around the house for placement. You should also read the 7th paragraph of the server rules.

 

What type of House to choose?

Double clicking on the house placement tool   housetool  will bring up a menu where you can select the type of house you would like to build. The choice is divided into 3 sections;
