We are back online. Thanks again for your patience.
Tonight's maintenance will be extended for up to 1 hour. Thank you, as always, for your patience.
As promised, here is our transition plan. Please do read it in its entirety. There's a lot to take in, and hopefully we've provided enough detail for you to both plan the transition, and understand why we are going down the path that we are. We look forward to seeing you in the real Britannia!
Thank you all so much for joining us on stream this evening. It was great to see over 70 of you turn out to listen to us tell jokes about Cove.
The launch is imminent! Mark June 20 in your diaries. We will also have the detailed transition plan in your hands within 24 hours, and Test Center will open to the public shortly after that.
Thanks again to all of our players, new and old. We couldn't have done it without you.
It's been a long time coming, but finally... we are ready for LoU TV Episode 3! There has been a colossal amount of work put in by the team over the last few months to prepare us for the transition to the Britannia map, and we are finally ready to pull back the covers and give you all a sneak peek.
So join us next weekend over at https://www.twitch.tv/legendsofultimaofficial/ - 10am EST/2pm UTC, Saturday 17th April.
See you there!
The Easter Bunny has hid his last egg for the season! Any remaining eggs may remain in the world until the end of the day, at the next scheduled restart. Thanks to everyone who participated and we hope you had some fun.
Happy Easter from the LOU Family! Easter Eggs are being spawned around the world for you to search for that may yield some special holiday goodies. Eggs are spawned in all regions except Frozen Tundra and dungeons. Happy hunting and may you have an eggcelent Easter weekend!
Apologies all, a critical maintenance task is taking longer than expected. Will advise as soon as we're back online. Current estimate is another 15-20 minutes. Thank you for your patience.
Maintenance has finished early and the server is available for login. Please note, as per the previous message, subsequent maintenance/restart periods from today onwards will take 15 minutes. The scheduled time is 9am UTC, and service will be restored by 9:15am UTC.
This evening's maintenance and restart window will extend up to one hour while additional tasks are performed to cater for back end infrastructure changes. Moving forward from today, nightly maintenance windows will be a fixed 15 minute period. That is to say, the server will go offline at 9am UTC as usual, and return to service at 9:15am UTC, unless otherwise noted here in the #news channel.
We are back. Please note that due to some back end infrastructure changes, if you previously used the shortcut to access our server, i.e.:
You should now change to use the following:
Thanks for your patience, and happy gaming!
Due to an issue with the US cluster, we are currently offline. There is no ETA to restoration at this time. There will be another update as soon as we know more.
Apologies for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.
The login server for US servers will be undergoing scheduled maintenance on March 30th at 4pm UTC and is expected to last 2 hours. The server will remain online but new connections may not be accepted during the outage window.
Today marks the last day of the Winter Events for 2020. Thanks to everyone that has participated! Due to this, the special winter drops will stop dropping after tonight. For those of you that enjoy ice fishing, don't worry! We've added some new items to obtain with ice fishing, as well as a few new additions to SOS loot.
Test Center will be offline for an indefinite period while we.. do things! We'll advise here when it's back online.
The server is back online and the following patch has been applied: https://legendsofultima.gamepedia.com/Fishing_Update_December_2020
Make sure to try out the new /macro command to help with repetitive tasks
Frozen Tundra has been populated with wildlife and some wandering healers throughout.
Due to some major backend changes with the Legends of Aria architecture, we need to temporarily retire the Covetous and Destard dungeons. This will allow us to proceed with the latest LoA upgrade, including moving to a new Unity platform, which in turn lets us push ahead with our plans for the Britannia map.
Rest assured they will return in the near future. If you have characters that are logged out inside Covetous or Destard, those characters will automatically be ejected if you try to log them in. Once the regions are removed entirely, you should be prompted for a town when you try to log them in.
Thanks as always for your patience while we work through these latest challenges. Keep an eye on #news for a notice around the upgrade, at which time you'll need to update your clients as well.
Frozen Tundra is now open! Throughout the rest of the month creatures spawned in the Frozen Tundra will have a chance to drop Winter Event collectibles. There will be new monsters, mini-champs and champs to contend with. New armour and weapons to collect as well as dozens of new collectible items.
The region will be open indefinitely and is housing-enabled allowing players to place houses. Soon we will be adding the new snowy house models provided by LOA!
That's not all! In the coming days we will also be adding Fishing Updates, Ice Fishing, and the in-game Macro System! See the full details at: https://legendsofultima.gamepedia.com/Fishing_Update_December_2020
But what about Britannia?! Well don't worry we haven't lost focus on the new map, as the team has been working steadily on that as well. While we don't have anything new to show you today, we may have some further updates coming soon. Keep your eyes peeled, and in the meantime please enjoy the Winter festivities!
We are pleased to announce that Legends of Ultima will be launching our 2020 Winter Event this Sunday 13th December at 11:00am EST
The event this year is different to previous years and we are proud to announce that we will be opening the Frozen Tundra for our players to enjoy.
There will be new monsters, mini-champs and champs to contend with. New armour and weapons to collect as well as dozens of new collectable items to aquire. There are a few more surprises and more details will follow in the next few days but there will certainly be lots to keep you busy during the holiday period.

Please make sure to keep your contact info up-to-date so that we can get back to you or ask questions about feedback to better understand issues being reported. You can access the Contact Info setting with the /contactinfo command. Make sure your Discord username matches what you see at the bottom left of your Discord screen, and you can left-click your username to copy it and easily paste it into the game. Thanks!
With the US presidential election underway, we would like to ask everyone to please refrain from discussing politics in LOU channels. We already deal with such serious issues in our everyday lives so let's keep it out of LOU and keep our community neutral. Thank you!
During today's regularly-scheduled restart, at 9am UTC, the server will remain offline for approximately 30 minutes to deploy the following patch: https://legendsofultima.gamepedia.com/Patch_10/27/2020
Earlier this week during regular maintenance we did some cleanup of the world and inadvertently most/part of the locked event area outside of Britain was removed. Sorry for that, it was not intended and we will be considering replacing it somehow.
The Gravedigger merchant has been added to an undisclosed location, happy hunting!
From now until 11/05 Paragon monsters will have a chance to drop a special Halloween item. We have introduced 4 new Halloween masks that can be blessed and dyed, as well as 2 new Halloween single-use dye bottles for dying your costumes. Happy hunting!
Please visit the LoU TV Wiki Page at https://legendsofultima.gamepedia.com/LoU-TV
We've uploaded the answers to the questions we weren't able to get to on stream, and this will be where future episodes are given the same treatment. Thanks again for all of your questions, and we look forward to sharing more with you on our next stream!
The Vorpal Easter Bunny that spawns when opening an easter egg nest was not intended to be tameable and they have been updated to reflect that, and any existing tames removed. Subsequently, if you had tamed and stored one on a pet broker, the pet broker should now be updated as well. Sorry for the confusion! We'll try to be more careful about things like this in the future. grimacing
An issue was resolved with using the Restock Reagents option with town vendors, if they are sold out of one or more of the items, causing players to be charged without receiving items. Please let us know if you encounter any other issues with the vendors.
Bard abilities have had an optimization pass:
General fixes and changes:
There is a client issue occurring with the Blacksmith model houses causing an issue with them being created off of the ground. There is also an issue specifically with the Stone Blacksmith house causing items dropped to the interior of the house to be moved to the patio. This issue has been forwarded to LOA for resolution.
Edit: LOA no longer uses these house models so they have been removed from architects and they can be sold back for full price.
We are aware of an issue with buff/debuff icons not showing consistently, or disappearing prematurely. No more reports of this issue are needed at this time, thank you.
We are aware that the Green Checkered Stall House Addon is appearing as just a wooden frame without any canopy. We are looking into it.
We are aware that the Player Settings option "Restock Amount" is not working with the latest update to the vendors system. Please use the "Restock Reagents" button in the Vendor Buy window, or Set and Set All, as a workaround.
We are aware of an issue with items not decaying consistently when they are dropped on a plot.
Some deco objects have larger bounds than necessary causing a buffer between the object and the end of the plot bounds -- please send bug reports with link to screenshot or description of items affected, we'll do our best to optimize
Skinning for mobs occasionally gives logs or skulls
Housing cannot be placed when the deed is not in your main backpack. Make sure blueprints are in your main backpack when trying to place them for now
Trees/Rocks - May occasionally be 'too far' to chop/mine (mostly resolved)
Decoration - the decorate window is sometimes prevented from coming up, or working properly after locking down an object on a plot
Treasure maps - Some treasure maps can't be deciphered, or chests may spawn inside a player's plot. The system is being overhauled and later this should no longer occur. If you don't want to run the risk of maps not working or chests not being accessible, please hold off on using maps until such time as this work is complete. https://discordapp.com/channels/369023244038045697/369027320360599552/565333890676293646
Lag issues in Upper Plains (and to a lesser degree Southern Hills) are known issues. There is no short term resolution on this. We expect a lot of this to improve significantly once we move to the new map.
If you get stuck on any in game landscape (eg mountain/rock faces etc), use /stuck, recall, or failing those options, page a GM. These are not bugs we can resolve on the current map.
Craft All is interrupted frequently especially in busier regions such as Upper Plains (Moonglow, Cove) and Southern Hills (Britain). Britannia map will fix this.
Power Hour gain issues can't be replicated; use the /skillgaindebug command to see what your Base Chance is (chance prior to any buffs/debuffs), plus if you are receiving a bonus/debuff for any reason, as well as the Final Chance (after buffs/debuffs)
Engraving doesn't always work on some books
Dyetubs have several objects which cannot be dyed as expected with the new Dye-tubs, please send bug reports with specific information about items you'd expect to be able to dye
Unequipping items on paperdolls may not work. Double click a replacement item in your backpack to equip gear in the meantime, or right click & unequip
Robes Of The Vampire sometimes do not properly display its visual effects
Guards sometimes whack players when using some utility spells like Mark
Containers sometimes don't show their contents, this is a client-related issue and we anticipate that an upcoming Client Patch will resolve this
Maker's Mark: Crafted items may not receive the Maker's Mark when they're supposed to, or some objects may receive a Maker's Mark when they shouldn't
Disguise Kit shows a player's real name in chat, as well as on the player's corpse
Mobs and NPCs may walk through walls and see through walls. CS has been made aware of this and we will be in more control of these kinds of issues when we switch to the Britannia map.
Items taken from crates in town may get stuck in your backpack. Page for a fix (or die and leave them on your corpse).
Part of the UI may not load including healthbar(s), hotbar(s), weapon abilities, etc. -- A known solution is to switch server regions, for example if you are in Upper Plains (Moonglow) then travel to Southern Hills (Britain).
Marking a rune may cause the sound of the spell to persist perpetually. The only resolution is a relog at this time.
Sometimes the game says that's too far away in error.
Mounts other than Horse may not work in some or all of the regions.
The 5 Star General Enchantment has caused server crashes and we will be disabling this enchantment permanently.
