Greetings everyone I was looking for an old style UO shard and I came here after some researches... Some shard has too many innovations, some other is purely GdR, some other is only PvP... I started to play UO in 1996, probably one of the first account here in Italy, and stopped when the orrible 3d acme out, with all those horrific different resistances and so on. But now, maybe, it's time to start over, reviving glorious days of the past (errm... youth, to be honest.) Time will not be as much as before (two children and -mainly- a wife) don't allow it. But I hope to meet u all in game soon, hoping not to loose patience in the training process... (I had to start over TOO many times, and I am quite frightened by this, to be honest.) Sorry for the long post, any hint/tip is welcome!

P.S I am Italian, so please forgive my eventual language errors ;)

Welcome to UOSA.

For starters I'd suggest making a bard, start with 60 int/10 str/10 dex and 50 magery/50 provoke.
Buy a shepherds crook and macro herding/snooping until you have 80+ str/dex.
Macro musicianship to GM while doing eval or hiding at the same time.

Once you get GM music (and 50 provo) you have a 50% chance to provoke any monster in the game, go nuts in low/mid level spawns to farm up gold.

While your bard is macroing it's worth creating another account/char to farm bandages from sheep/cotton, use the bandages to heal characters while they fight to gain combat skills like swords/wrestling/tactics etc.

Good luck.

Welcome! If you have any questions or need any help feel free to reach out. A private message here on the forums would be the best way but I am often in the IRC channel as well same name as here.

Enjoy the nostalgia and safe travels!

I'd start with 50 meditation/ 49 magery.

Remember, stat gains (str,dex,int) come the fastest when the skill your using to gain it is at 0. So hang around brit bank and beg for gold untill you have enough to buy up random skills untill your at 700(EXCEPT HERDING and COOKING). Then macro cooking or herding to gain stats quickly.

Cheers

Welcome!

I'd be happy to help you set up fighters/paladins to get melee skills worked. I am also happy to help write razor macros for you if you need the help. I love building characters. (I won't be around much this week, however).

I'd suggest a tank/bard as your first character, it is the cheapest.

100 music, provocation, tactics, melee choice, anatomy, healing.
60 Margery, 40 med.

You can have 3 accounts, and can use them at the same time. I recommend to use the IRC chat function, it will help get any questions answered quickly, and we can link you forum posts, like guides and such. These forums have so much knowledge...
