In theory, if it hasn't been hacked and you remember the account details, yes.

That being said, there have been cases where people have returned, their accounts had been hacked or they forgot they deleted everything and everything was gone. But in most cases, your characters are there.

 

But yes, everything on your characters and in their bank accounts should still be there.

You will need to create an EA Master Account and then link your UO account to it to reactivate.

I've heard it go both ways.  Players with ancient accounts they hadn't played in forever suddenly got their old accounts back intact.  Others have resubscribed to find the accounts wiped.  I can't say why it might happen one way or the other.  I hope it all works out for you.

 

Oh one other thing, even if your old account is wiped, it will still have the accumulated play time so if you build up your characters again on that account, you'll receive older veteran rewards for each year you hit.  Most of the skills are easier to train these days too.  There are still the difficult ones like barding and taming, however.

And if you are low on time, but have spare cash, you can buy a Mythic token which will give you 90 points of skill in each of 5 skills of your choice, so that's a nice bonus.

Well, everything was there.  I discovered the server population is so low, that my house had decayed, but no-one had built there.  Im not sure if I will stick with it.  I think I have seen maybe four other players in the three or four days since reactivating the account.

 

Is there a way to download the 3D client?  I think I would rather play that one than the 2D client.

 

I honestly don't know why they haven't merged some servers to increase population.

 

At any rate, thanks again for the answers!

You can download the "Enhanced" aka psuedo-3D client there.

Ah, I was talking about the actual 3D client they used to have.  I guess they have done away with that one all together.  2.5D it is I guess.

Yup.  They got rid of that a few years back.
