Publish 55 will be published to all shards during their next regular maintenance (for the Japanese shards, we just missed them - it'll get published there during tomorrow's maintenance.)

I mean, seriously, WTF?

I have 1 month til my account turns two - and I am so torn! I would LOVE to get rid of my ugly cloaks, and get a dress - but the deed box! That would be SO extremely handy!

Decisions decisions!

Oh, I'd like to know that too - and how do you find out if it is or not? Some of the other rewards would be nice to know if they are account bound, and/or if they can be placed by people younger than the reward age (did that make sense? Sounded like a tongue twister as I was typing it =P)

The only item that's account bound to my knowledge is the full Soulstone.

Items that require an account age you can own and some you can even probably lock down, but you cannot use until you reach the required age of the item.

I'm in the same boat. My UOnniversary is somewhere between April and August (depending on if the account age ever updates).

But I do plan on buying something when I have the gold to do so.

Is the deed box account bound?



I was wondering this .. asked in chat and got the go ahead so I used my youngest account to get the deed then left it in my much older accounts house. My other account can indeed use the deed box.. the answer is no it is NOT account bound.
Why hate and destroy when you can love and enjoy.

Who can place the box? Just the chars in the account that owns the house, what about co-owners? When you place the box, can any other accounts access it?

Yes Co-owners can place the box ... and you can set the security level for it as any other secured container :)


*cookie thumsb up* to the devs on this nifty addition :)

Lord Kynd wondered why the test was less than the usual week.


so much for Origin being a 'special' shard where publish's would sit for 1 week before progressing to the rest of the shards.
why was Origin created again ?

This was one of those situations where circumstances forced us to leave it on Origin for less time than we'd like. We had a bit of internal hardware go down last week (that's why we didn't do the client patch on Thursday) which forced us to delay the Origin publish until Monday. We would have been happier with a week on Origin, but we didn't want to delay the publish yet another week for it.

Lord Kynd responded with

ok,
this is 'buyable' once and a while, but this has been happening everytime.
Origin was used like it was designed for what.. 2 publishes ? now all of a sudden it is a shard like any other shard.


transfers should not have been allowed , at least from there to any other shard. that woulda helped secure it as it was ment to be.

There's only so far we can push back the live date without squeezing us further down the road. It's not anyone's favorite situation, but sometimes it's unavoidable.

He's smoking something....every time we've had a publish, we've had it for a week or more until this one and one other.

I mean, seriously, WTF?


All house deco deeds that I know of are like that. If you ARE in a house that you own, sometimes that error comes up when you 2x click the deed and then target someplace where the deed cannot be placed, particularly when too close to the wall. I've always assumed that for whatever reason, the game is erroneously thinking I'm clicking outside the wall due to the circle of transparency, and therefore thinks I'm trying to place the item outside the house. But that's just my guess.

And the deed box - wicked awesome!! Must get one! Though I only have a few rewards to pick amongst my accounts, and I need a few ethy cu sidhes! (No, I won't replace ALL of the polar bears...) :)
