Yep..Lots of Stealing, PKing, ability to steal your pet from you, buying a island from the game folks for $300-700 USD, buying gear from the game people for lots of US$. Also everyone or almost everyone there is a PK'er and or a thief, and have siege rules to some extent, so thy go around stealthing near naked, the main thing is getting some high value items like "relic" to upgrade pets, and making "meta pets" with diff colors that cost a ton. Main skills to develop there are stealth, hiding, stealing, snooping. I think the ideas for pets is ok, but very frustrating if you have paid $200 USD for a "meta pet" and it just got stolen from you. I guess this may be appealing to some, but no thanks!I have playing this game since may 2000 and I consider myself a Veteran. There where times where i was bored. Who wasnt? I started to Play a freeshard named UO forever which does have some nice ideas. But when it comes to down to the nitty gritty i am still here! The freeshard name "UOForever" should also apply here!
