Ultima Online adjusts animal training, gets ready to test Publish 98

Following Ultima Online’s most recent update, animal training is at the forefront of many adventurer’s minds. The overhaul to the system has received a lot of feedback, some of which the team is taking to use for adjustments. One of the biggest of these is a 50% reduction in damage when a pet attacks a player.

Speaking of updates, Publish 98 is on track to be tested later this month. The team isn’t talking much right now about what that patch will contain, but hey, it’s coming!

Ultima Online’s 20th anniversary party in Virginia this September with Richard Garriott and Starr Long is currently at capacity, so the organizers are asking attendees to inform them ASAP if they are no longer coming so as to free up their spot for others. The team will be raffling off three grandfathered castles to the entire community at that point, attending or not.

I read that last bit and my mind went immediately to Garriott’s castle, which would indeed be a nifty door prize.

The last time I tried to get back into UO I couldn’t remember 12 year old me’s e-mail address or character names and couldn’t get back in. I had heard Broadsword was going to bring it to Steam and had been waiting for that to get a new account. Might have to just jump back in, I haven’t found an isometric mmorpg since that has given me the same satisfaction.

Your waiting is almost over. LoA will release (beta no more wipe) after summer on steam. I played all the alphas and I can confirm you it’s the true spiritual successor of Ultima Online nostalgia. https://www.legendsofaria.com/

Depending on what style of UO you liked, there is a great free shard out there that is actually more active than the OSi servers. It’s the old rule set, mixed with some new content, great community, very active staff, running events constantly. Skill gain is fairly quick, with the exception of tamers, a lot of fun all around.
