Starting Thursday, March 4th, 2021 at 2:00AM UTC, the hosting service provider for LOU will be undergoing maintenance. No outages are expected but out of an abundance of caution we are letting everyone know ahead of time. We'll post again if anything changes.
The issue causing the unexpected downtime has been resolved and the server is now back online. Thanks again for your patience today!
The Faction Event in the Frozen Tundra has ended and is no longer available.
We are aware of the reagent purchasing bug and there is no need for any more reports on this one. We'll advise as soon as it is rectified. In the meantime, you should be able to avoid it by:
Thank you for your patience, as always.
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.
We have enabled a higher verification setting for the Discord to prevent abuse. If you were affected by this please know we did not single you out, but you just need to either A) verify your phone number on your Discord account or B) send us an email requesting an exception at [email protected] if you cannot or choose not to verify a phone number. Thanks for your understanding.
Recently we have sometimes had issues trying to contact people back due to outdated/missing Contact Info setting in-game. 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!
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
It's been a while, however we're ready to get moving with our next stream! This will be scheduled for 10am EST/3pm UTC next Saturday 29th of August. If you can't make that time, don't worry, we'll be recording the stream and will make it available on YouTube after the fact, or you can watch the VOD on Twitch.
In the next day or two, we'll share a link that will let you ask questions in advance, in case you can't make it on the day. We plan to give you an update of where we are at overall, and look forward to sharing it with you.
Just a reminder, you can find us on Twitch at https://twitch.tv/legendsofultimaofficial
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!
Bard abilities have had an optimization pass:
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.
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.
Reminder: Buying/selling in-game items or currency for real-life currency or items is strictly prohibited and anyone involved will be subject to banning. Thanks for playing fair!
