Does anyone know the others that I currently have missing? I will edit the thread accordingly.

Guild of Arcane Arts buff is actually 5% Spell damage increase, just a typo I believe. You are getting the correct amount.

Yes. You need to be "respected" status I think. Check UOGuide for more info ;)
Is that a place to find information? I will have to take a look. I don't know anything about these governor elections.

It looks like swing speed is overpowered though if almost everyone picks that. Trying to pander to their constitutes!

So if I pledge my allegiance to one of these towns I get one of the listed bonuses?
Declare your citizenship for a town of choosing... find the trade minister (usually on the docks) and he will have a wooden crate next to him. Drop 5k ingots into the crate. And at that point, you should have respected status.

After that, you have to go to the town stone, click it, and select 'utilize trade deal' and you will get the buff noted. It's good for 24 hours, and after that you will need to go back to the stone to select it again.

Hope that helps!

just to clarify, to choose a loyalty, it is via the context menu on ones character.... one chooses loyalty rating, and from there, city loyalty...... i went through a lot of trouble trying to figure that out (the info currently up on uoguide directs a person to the same context menu, but via the titles and rewards... which is not the way)

this thread, or at least the pertinent info on it re the cities and their buffs ought be stickied..................... we have a picture thread stickied; this one is more generally and immediately valuable to the atlantic shard than that one yet it floats free to fall and be lost (which is what happened to the last one)

Is it possible for reds to get the town bonuses?
No - unfortunately, they only work for blues.

However, that is a topic for a different thread of discussion. Check UHall - as this was being discussed there just last week.

I am now a citizen of Skara Brae for that sweet 1 Fast Casting bonus. I think a lot of people in our guild will be pledging too!

Are all of the Buffs listed in the 1st post still correct?
Thanks!
Sorry on the terribly late reply here, but to my knowledge... yes all of those buffs are up to date. If you believe this to be otherwise, please let me know so I can update accordingly.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF THE GOVERNORS!

I have updated the original post. If anyone has changed their buffs, or if I have any of the governors incorrectly listed, please post here or message me.

Most likely, you're not going to see someone pick up the HP Regeneration buff from the Maritime Guild on any towns. There are many other ways to get HP Regen from suit pieces to the Shrine buffs you can attain.

I do see your point though. I am guilty of myself keeping the SSI Bonus on Trinsic due to pressure from other Trinsic citizens who have had that buff for a longer amount of time. The only buffs that are typically used are the ones for Faster Casting, Swing Speed Increase, Spell Damage Increase and Hit Chance Increase. They're the most valuable for planning out a suit or particular template.

Hi
Don't know much about the system but wondering if it is possible for the governors to diversify the buffs? so that there is no repetition?
Or is there more internal politics associated with being a citizen of a certain city?

Britain will change to HCI next week. The trade deal can only be changed once a week. Some folks had asked for it to be SSI instead so it was changed. However, the ballot box placed on the stone clearly shows folks would prefer the HCI so as soon as it can be reset, it will be HCI.

Britain's trade buff is changed back to Warrior's Guild, HCI +5 on March 24, 2019. Thank you.
