There is a known issue with the Citadel Studios login servers. While LoU remains online, some users are having issues connecting. We do not have an ETA on a fix. Thanks for your patience.
As part of LoU's Halloween events Danyc the Candy Goblin has arrived in Nujel'm. Check out areas around Gazer Isle, The Dunes, Scorched Print and Wyvern's Rest to acquired his much needed Halloween Candy! Danyc has various Halloween items to trade, but will only be in town until 1 Nov. Stay tuned for more Halloween announcements on Discord.
We would like to take a moment to remind players of the rules you agreed to when you joined the server. One of these rules clearly states that actions of staff are not to be discussed in public channels.
This rule has recently been broken frequently on many occasions, and we would really appreciate your help in having it adhered to. As per the rules, you can email [email protected] or [email protected] to discuss any concerns.
Continued discussion of these concerns in public channels will result in Discord privileges being revoked. Thank you for your co-operation.
We are actively looking to bring several Discord moderators on board to help the rest of the team with the Discord server. If you think you'd fit that bill, please drop in an application via:
We look forward to hearing from you!
We've been receiving a lot of questions about "why did this get nerfed?" around things that should actually be submitted as bug reports. If you see something is not behaving as it used to and there is no Patch Note about it, then please DO NOT ASSUME that it is a "stealth patch, undocumented nerf, ninja nerf" and just SUBMIT A BUG REPORT for the issue. Thanks to everyone's patience and cooperation! :)
The House Design contest for the Britannia map has officially kicked off! If your design is successful, it could be immortalised in Legends of Ultima for everyone to use.
See #submissions-house-design-contest for details. Good luck!
Recently we were made aware that Turtle is having to take some time off from the project due to a family matter. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
During this time, please avoid DMing Turtle for any matters, if you need assistance please send a GM Page, or email us at [email protected]
Thanks to everyone for your concern and understanding.
Hello everyone, we've published some notes in the #test-center-patch-notes channel referencing https://legendsofultima.gamepedia.com/OctoberMegaPatch and we are requesting everyones participation with helping to test these new features on the Test Center. Please head over there and test out the changes if you have time. Thanks!
The #shit-talking channel has been removed and we will no longer tolerate shit talking in Discord. If you have a problem with someone, you need to take it out with them in-game, via DM, or via other Discord servers. If shit-talking starts to happen in LOU channels, those involved will be silenced by the moderation team. This is the official LOU discord and we intend to keep it clean and respectful. Thanks for your understanding.
We have had a lot of inquiries to join the LOU team over the last few months. Rather than email everyone, I thought I'd take a moment now to thank everyone that has recently applied to the team. Thanks for taking the time to fill out the application and thanks for your interest. While we may not be able to accept everyone, we sincerely appreciate you showing interest, additionally if you have not heard back from us just know that we keep applications on file and go through them in the order received. Thanks again! :)
New hardware is online, thanks for your patience. See you in game!
Thank you for bearing with us while world chat has been disabled. We will be re-enabling it shortly after this message. During the time it has been disabled, we have developed new world chat moderation tools in order to (we hope) bring a better experience to in-game world chat.
Individual access to world chat may be revoked if a staff member deems your chat inappropriate or disruptive. We would prefer not to moderate the channel, however occasionally, as it did last Sunday evening EST, it becomes untenable and we have no choice. We hope by moderating disruptive individuals, rather than everyone, we can continue to use world chat as it was intended.
Thank you once again for your support and patience.
We've been receiving a lot of help requests for issues with placing or resizing plots. Please know that there is nothing we can do to help with placing or resizing plots. If you cannot place or resize the way you want, please try a different location. Thank you for your understanding.
Hello everyone, in-game GM Pages are successfully making it to the team, in our internal chat, 100% of the time! Thanks for everyone's patience through the outage we experienced. :)
Since we are about to enter a new month, and with seeing the news of even more extreme weather and natural disasters happening around the globe every week, I wanted to remind everyone of our Vacation Hold policy.
If you are in any position where you cannot get to the game for an extended time, whether it be military deployment, natural disasters, or something else please reach out to us, and we can consider your request to put your house into a Vacation Hold to prevent it from decaying in the normal timeframe.
It seems that an update was pushed to the production server prematurely by mistake. This is causing some pets to be re-sized to appear bigger or smaller.
We intend to make very large pets smaller, but did not intend for small pets to be scaled up. We will work on an auto-fix that will correct pets that should be small, like whelplings.
The current sizes are also not final and may change before the final patch is applied. Thanks for your understanding, sorry for the confusion!
Just a friendly reminder to please link your discord account to your in-game account when you /page. It really helps our Counselors and GM staff get in touch with you faster and get things to a resolution as quickly as possible.
You can review the rules here: https://legendsofultima.gamepedia.com/Server_Rules
Just wanted to let you know that we are currently tracking some issues that are affecting many if not all users. Thanks for your patience while we work to resolve these issues.
We made it through the Steam launch upgrade process and are currently on the latest build. We are excited and overjoyed by the amount of attention LOU has been getting. Thanks for everyone's support and patience.
Please be aware of some issues that have come up from the Steam launch.
An issue with players being unable to open the Plot Menu when the plot has a Guild assigned and the character is in a different guild than is assigned to the Plot has been resolved.

As a QoL adjustment and in preparations of upcoming Faction changes the following hot-fixes are in place:
Please continue to provide feedback on the range of the faction stone as it relates to game play.
As part of our attempts to improve performance, we are temporarily altering the behaviour of overland mob artificial intelligence. The result of this is that you may see mobs teleport themselves back to their spawn points if they are pulled too far away from them.
We appreciate this may cause some disruption, however this move is vital to understanding next steps in our attempts to alleviate the lag and performance issues that we are occasionally experiencing. Please do provide feedback as we evaluate this change, and also keep in mind that this change is not necessarily permanent.
Several changes have been made to enchanting material drop rates:
This is part of a move to address an overall economy issue, which will continue as we move towards the new map. If you notice anything that doesn't match the highlighted criteria above, please do let us know.
If you have an issue where you suspect someone is breaking the rules, or they are using hate speech, please send an email to [email protected] and if you have a screenshot to submit please attach it. Thank you!
The server is back online now. Thanks for your patience!
It appears that during one of the patches in the last 12 hours it caused vendors to give things out for free due to them thinking they were on the Test Center. Due to this, we're forced to rollback to an earlier save point. We're very sorry for the inconvenience. We're awaiting the completion of the rollback at this time and will post another update once we're able. Thanks for your understanding and patience.
The server is offline and while we investigate some issues thanks for your patience, sorry for the downtime.
These new additions have been added:
Closer In line with UO:
You can now begin uncaching pets from deeds again. Shrinking pets into deeds however is permanently disabled with the upcoming Pet Brokers mod replacing pet deeds.
-Added Ankh Of Resurrection Near Waterfall On Level 2. -Added Hidden Poison Traps to Destard.

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.
