    Welcome to UOR!

    I can't speak for the administration as I'm just a player but if they made that kind of exception people would lose their minds so unfortunately I don't think it'll happen. However you still have Halloween (for 5 more days), Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, and Easter to stuff your backpack full of all kinds of rewards! Some of these events also give bags with the prospect of random, awesome items.

    You've joined at a good season. With 5 of the 7 big holiday events still ahead of us (not counting Halloween which isn't finished yet) you can be swimming in holiday coins and related, sweet items. Don't despair!

    Thanks for the reply! I figured that would be the case but it can't hurt to ask. I'm willing to purchase some of the items if I can find a vendor or player selling any (after I farm a bit more gold of course). So far we are loving it, and it is the first thing to really satisfy the nostalgia I've had for the game I used to play, because the official ea servers have gone haywire and are just not enjoyable to me anymore. So glad I found this and look forward to playing with you all.

    Glad you're enjoying it! I had the same reaction when I joined. I had quit OSI due to the increasing player flight from Felucca towards Trammel and Ilsenhar (and the 3d client), when I came back here 15 years later it was like I'd returned home.

    There will certainly be people who would sell you some 5th anni items at some point. Particularly if you're interested in the pink hue you can probably get some items fairly cheap if you ask. Blue stuff will be sold too but people (including I) really dug the blue hue so those items were sold at sometimes shocking prices. However now that the anniversary hype has worn off a bit prices may be more reasonable, it already seemed that way in the last few auctions I saw.

    We're glad to have you! Ask in Renaissance Discussion or IRC if you have any questions.

    That is a great way to describe it. Renaissance and prior was perfection to me and a big part of my childhood, then the game got progressively worse after it was sold off and became item based while multiplying trammel lands for a dwindling player base - but I'm sure everyone here understands that already!

    Don't forget this is Felucca. Prepare to be pk'd, and stolen from -- the real world outside Occlo is dangerous! But remember, you can kill them too! :)

    If you macro fast enough, you can still get in on some of the Halloween events! They are running all week. All you really need is to be able to do some damage output, so a 1x GM might even be sufficient, (GM weapon, high tactics, high anat), and you can score some coins -- just join the event and whack stuff.

    Welcome!

    @Syntax you should be ALL set up for 6th anniversary! Welcome! We're in the midst of the Halloween event. This is event season, so there's lots more to keep you busy.

    my first year on this server 2 Halloweens ago (or was it 3), I went into a Halloween instance event with a LJ who was GM swords and Anat, tactics was in low 90's, LJ was in 60's, resist was in 50's, healing was only in 80's, magery was 50, and hiding was low. It's all how you play and using other players to get targeted first then run up and whack monster as well, etc. I did quite well in the Halloween event my first year and was very enjoyable. the hardest part is the very start trying to scramble to get items and getting the correct weapon can take a while even with people smithing items. Its fun and you should try it.
