Legends of Ultima Wiki
Mechanics and More
Is this server going to wipe?
We do not have any plans to wipe the LOU server. We will always do everything in our power to prevent loss or make sure it's as minimal as possible.
How many people play on LoU? What's the population?
We don't give out numbers, but the world is lively. You only need to go visit most of the banks and you'll always see people. Britain and Moonglow are the most popular, followed by Magincia, Vesper, Cove, Ocllo and Riverside which are a bit quieter. There are particularly quiet towns like Yew, Papua and Nujel'm, but you'll still see someone every now and then who likes the quieter places or lives in the area.
What era of UO are you trying to emulate?
We are an all-eras UO mod, that primarily focuses on classic, Pre-AOS UO with cherry-picked features from later eras as well.
Do you have the UO Britannia map?
We do not yet have the rights to use custom assets including art/sounds/maps, etc. A member of the community has taken on the project of recreating the UO Britannia map for Unity and for the sake of using it on LoA community servers. In the future we plan to try to use this. For now, we use the Celador map with references to Britannia.
Is there Trammel?
No, and there won't be. Rampant PKing is kept in check with smarter mechanics, such as stat loss. (Notoriety)
Are Snooping and Stealing in the game?
Not yet, but soon. A huge patch was recently implemented that made significant changes to the game to be less like Legends of Aria and more like UO, and this needs to be ironed out. Snooping and Stealing will be coming soon after that's done. Don't get too used to letting your valuables out for everyone to see.
Are straw hats/llamas/ostards/custom houses/black sandals/other iconic UO art in the game?
Custom art assets can't be added yet. We certainly hope to add as many classic UO things as we can, but that will be down the road.
What are the skill and stat caps?
700 skill cap. (Skills)
225 stat cap (str/dex/int).
Where can I train my skills (to 30)?
Are bank boxes local?
Player bank-boxes are per-character and can be accessed from any town.
How do I open the in-game map?
Since the Official server no longer uses the in-game map the same, we were forced to change the Map button to L. You can re-bind this in-game by going to Options > Keyboard > Ability Window (K) and change it to M if you wish.
Where can I buy some tools to get started?
Most town vendors offer basic items, however it is always cheaper to buy from player vendors, which are easier to find than you think. You can find a list of advertised, well stocked vendors on Discord in the #trading or #vendor-locations channels.
How do I make money?
Depending on your playstyle, you can either sell basic resources such as ore to blacksmiths and logs to carpenters, or if you prefer the combat approach, skinning animals and some monsters for their leather and selling them the weaver is a good start. You will need an steady income stream before starting raising certain skills seriously, such as Magery or Musicianship.
Why do weapons and armor of different materials provide nearly the same benefits?
Our crafting system currently is inspired by *old-school* UO where the metals were a matter of rarity, style and collectability. When you craft weapons or armor, they are either Basic (similar to the Ruin tier of dropped items) or Exceptional (the Vanquishing/Invulnerable tier of dropped items).
Why was my character's name changed?
Your name was changed because it contained adult content or racial slurs. If you don't like the name we gave you, you can request another one from a GM. (Server Rules)
Are horses allowed in dungeons?
How do I release my pet?
Right click it and choose Release, or say "All Release" and target the pet. (Commands)
Are all wild animals the same? Do they grow in stats or skills?
Animals have a range of possible stat scores at 'birth'. Some are better than others. Their stats never raise, so hunt for the best one you can find. Their skills raise through use. (Animal Taming)
How do I make a macro for "taming/music/peace/discord/say (insert cheesy roleplaying quote here)"?
Create custom commands to drag to your hotkey bars.
I dropped items on a stack in my bank/I dropped items or a bag on the ground to transfer to a friend/I put items in a container in my house or bank... AND THEY DISAPPEARED!
We are sorry for your loss. As a matter of policy the staff of LoU does not replace items lost to negligence, accident, or system error.
How do I stop attacking?
Press space bar to go out of combat mode, or press Escape.
My house got looted!
Collision does not always work properly. Keep your items in locked containers. If you see someone in your house looting or PKing please take a screenshot and submit it to the staff. (Server Rules)
How do I identify an item?
The Item Identification skill and a lot of patience. Or hire someone to do it!
Where do I sell jewels?
From a Jeweler NPC in most towns. (Vendors)
How can I pull a health bar?
Click and drag off the person/animal/monster, or hit O and target yourself, someone else, or a pet or monster. This can be remapped.
What is the conversion from LoA money?
- 1c = 1gp
- 1s = 100gp
- 1g = 10,000gp
- 1p = 1,000,000gp
Can I kill Young players?
No. Don't do it. (Server Rules)
Can I kill players coming out of moongates?
No. Don't do it. (Server Rules)
Where can I buy a house?
- In Britain, next to the architect is also a teleporter to inspect all the houses before you buy. This area is far north-east of Nujel'm if you want to take the long way there, or if you're a murderer.
How many houses can I own?
One house per account. Your other characters are automatically Co-Owners, but you still have to make copies of your key for them. Houses cannot be sold back, but they can be redeeded and sold to other players. (Housing)
You should hold an AMA!
We did, you can read it on reddit.
Will there ever be more than 4 character slots?
At this time, it's only possible to offer 4 character slots. In the future, there may be opportunity for community servers to customize the amount of character slots offered.
