The server is back online, we will be monitoring things closely though just in case. Thanks for your patience
The server is experiencing unexpected downtime and we are investigating the cause. Thanks for your patience, and sorry for the wait.
The server is back online now.
The server will remain offline for approximately 15 minutes after today's daily restart at 4am CDT/9am UTC to apply some updates that will be posted separately as a patch note.
An issue has been identified with some users in Quebec that are experiencing timeouts when trying to connect to LOU. We are investigating the issue and hope to resolve it as quickly as possible. In the meantime, if you are affected and have access to a VPN or Mobile Hotspot it may be a possible workaround to connect through that until the issue is resolved. Thanks for your patience!
The server update has been deployed and is coming back online now. Please make sure you have the latest client version installed in order to play LOU. Thanks for your patience through the downtime today.
The server is now offline for approx 15-30 minutes while we deploy the latest update. Please make sure you have the latest client installed. We'll post again when the server is coming back online.
The server will be going offline at 6pm CDT/11pm UTC to deploy to the latest version. Please make sure you have the latest client installed. We'll post again once the server goes down and again when it is due to come back up. Thanks for your patience!
Service has been restored, however we've not yet had a chance to apply today's updates from LOA so please continue using the legacy client to connect to LOU in the meantime. Thanks for your patience.
The server is having difficulty connecting and we are investigating at this time. Updates that were released today from LOA have not been applied to LOU yet, but we will try to apply them before service is restored. We'll post again once we know more.
The Gravedigger merchant has been added to an undisclosed location, happy hunting!
The server is coming back online and the Gravedigging patch has been applied. The Gravedigger merchant has not been added just yet but we will post again soon, once they are available.
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!

Thanks for joining our stream today! Test Center is back online, and Wrong is available for testing. Head on up to the Britain Graveyard to find the portal to the entry.
To get back to Britain, you can of course Recall, or there is a portal south of the Wrong entry, down the road a little. Don't forget to give us some feedback over in #dungeon-wrong-feedback

Test Center is back online for now, check the #test-center-patch-notes channel for recent changes
Hello everyone, recently the response times for help requests or emails have been a little slower than usual. We apologize if you've had to wait for a while to get a reply from us. We handle issues in the order they are received normally and sometimes it can take time to review, research and to reply back to everyone.
In some cases we have noticed that issues are resolved before we are able to help, which is great! So we want to thank all of you experienced players for your participation with helping others solve common issues, and also thank you for your patience when reaching out to staff.
We would like to remind all players of the Terms of Service that you agree to when connecting to any Legends of Aria-based product. Those Terms of Service can be found here:
Please be advised that in all cases, we fully support immediate action taken on any violation of these terms of service, up to and including banning any accounts that participate in said violation. In addition, in order to protect the project and its affiliations, we will not enter into any further discussion on this topic, public or otherwise.
Thank you for your understanding on this important matter.
The update has been completed and the server is now on the latest version, please make sure you have the latest version intalled to connect to LOU.
Thanks to everyone that attended the stream and submitted questions. If you missed out, don't worry! The stream recording should be available soon, keep an eye out for it at https://youtube.com/c/stimwalt
Happy belated Canada Day & US Independence Day everyone! Make sure to log in sometime before 7/5 12:00am UTC to claim your fireworks wand to celebrate with. Stay safe!
We are aware that many players are looking forward to "June 21st" based upon the most recent YouTube video stating that we hoped to have some big news by Spring 2020. This was not intended as an actual deadline, and was never meant to be received as such, as it was more of a hopeful projection. Meanwhile, as many of you are keenly aware, the "human malware" that has impacted the world, has impacted us too, and things have slowed for everyone. We will be avoiding making such projections in the future unless we are absolutely certain of timelines. Apologies for any unintentional confusion, but we appreciate your passion and excitement for the project! Stay safe.
A new version of the client has been made available and the server is now up to date. Please make sure you have the latest client installed, thank you!
Welcome to May everyone!
Just want to drop by and give all of our dedicated supporters a big round of applause and thank you for continuing to support the project! In the past month we have been working on optimizing our infrastructure to prepare for the future, and we have also spent a lot of time cumulatively working towards the rest of our goals in the push to Britannia. Thanks to everyone that has helped with testing and participating in Test Center events. We'll keep working our hardest and hope to keep making you proud.
We know a lot of you are waiting to find out more about what to expect with the map change and many other changes coming with it, and we appreciate your patience while we continue to work all of that out. Thanks for being with us and remaining patient through our growth!
We should be all wrapped up with the maintenance reboots and the issue preventing ghost characters from logging in should be resolved. If you are still having an issue with login please let us know by emailing [email protected] or DM Gorgan. Thank you for your patience today!
Happy Easter everyone! Hope you have a safe holiday. Hop in game shortly for some festivities! :)
Thanks to various optimisations and improvements, we think we are finally in a good position to return to daily restarts. After the next server restart, subsequent restarts will be at 9am UTC daily. Yay!
General fixes and changes:
Requires 80 Mining and 80 Forensic Evaluation to begin using
Must purchase a Gravediggers Pickaxe or Shovel from the Gravedigger merchant
Use gravediggers shovel or pickaxe at a gravesite, look for headstones being used to mark individual graves
Gravediggers tools have a limited number of charges, 50 to start, and a charge will be consumed with each successful dig
Gravediggers tools are both equippable for max fun, and a "Use RH" button appears with both of them equipped to easily press Q to start digging
Chances to obtain new rewards introduced in the form of titles, pet mounts and collectibles (what could they be?!?)
A few Halloween rares also have a chance to be obtained from now until 11/05, these are different than the Halloween Paragon drops
Forensic Evaluation changes:
Related general changes:
That old annoying bug that causes your weight to be doubled sometimes when moving items around has been resolved.
Live has been updated to include a change from Britannia which causes mount stamina to not drain during a PvP timer.
An issue preventing guildmasters from seeing the Guildmaster Title option from the Guild Menu has been resolved
An issue has been resolved that was causing players to become frozen after changing the shape of their body using Polymorph spell and disguise kits and the spell and disguise kits have been re-enabled now.
An issue has been resolved with plot lockdowns causing items being released from a plot to not be removed from the Lockdown List. This affected things like plot re-sizing, as well as the number of lockdowns being reported incorrectly.
Existing pet deeds were originally scheduled to expire on 1/1/2020 but as you know we had delayed that to give people more time to claim them. Existing deeds will now expire on 6/15/2020 and existing deeds will be removed from the world at that time.
Several performance and server stability fixes from Britannia have been applied to the live server.
Hello everyone, we have finished applying the following patch to the main server: https://uo4.life/patchnotes - Thanks for your patience!
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.
The Combat Log has been temporarily disabled it to debug an issue with persistence as it may get cleared when you cross regions or log out.
Certain containers (such as crates), may not show the background/objects inside. Relog to resolve this or use another type of container.
Town vendors no longer sell skill books and instead train skills by speech command: vendor train skillname
The Legends of Ultima Test Center has many upcoming changes including combat changes and the Britannia Map preview. Stop by and check it out!
Some of the town vendors that sell reagents have had their minimum quantity increased.

Currently the server restarts every 6 hours, but we plan to move back to daily restarts after we squash some gremlins.
Anyone can get to and from Wind through Misty Caverns, north of Riverside.
Britannian dungeons like Covetous can be accessed via Wind! One-way wagons can take most there but won't bring you back.
