Make sure to join #2ndAnniv in IRC to take part in the event at the scheduled times. To celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of UO Renaissance going live we have a few special things planned for our players. Players with accounts over 21 days old will notice a special bag placed in their bank upon login. These will be awarded from 8/31/2014 to 9/2/2014 and are given 1 per account. These items will be placed directly in your bank, for players who might have logged out in hazardous locations, so make sure to check there. To celebrate the anniversary we have created an exclusive line of clothing, jewelry and decorative items. Each item is named to celebrate the occasion. Each bag has a chance to contain the following 1 2nd Anniversary Clothing Item (hue 1359,1159) 1 2nd Anniversary Jewelry Item (newbied, hue 1359,1159) Chance for an anniversary mug 1 Hair Restyle Deed, Beard Restyle Cream, or Clothing Bless Deed 1 Fireworks Wand 1 Special Named Bag (hue 1359,1159) Rare Chance for a mystery item Click to enlarge During our anniversary weekend we will be running a 4 part scavenger hunt event.
