Less Maintenance, More Ultima Online
Select shards now have scheduled maintenance only three times a week!
Do you play on Arirang, Izumo, Yamato, Hokuto, Wakoku, Asuka, Drachenfels, Europa or Siege Perilous? These shards now have scheduled maintenance only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (local server time).
In addition, we’ve planned testing in an attempt to reduce the maintenance downtime across all remaining shards.
