UO Heritage "Seasons"
  • Certain content was always only available during certain times of the year. We have now set it up to be automatic. Teleporters will only allow you into certain encounters / dungeons during the correct months. Some of these seasonal events are custom and others are not.
    • Season 1
      • Treasures Of Tokuno
      • From January to February creatures killed in Tokuno will have a chance to drop treasures of tokuno. These can be turned in for Tokuno Majors.
      • Rewards = http://www.uoguide.com/Artifacts_(ToT)
    • Season 2
      • Blackthorn's Dungeon
      • From March to May players will be able to access Blackthorn's Dungeon. This dungeon allows you to collect Minax artifacts to turn in at the entrance for powerful rewards. Almost all of these rewards can be obtained in other ways through the year like by doing Community Collections and Peerless.
      • Rewards = http://www.uoguide.com/Blackthorn_Artifact
    • Season 3
      • KOTL City
      • From June to July players can brave the ruins of KOTL city. Using a similar system to Blackthorns Dungeon players will collect minor artifacts to turn in for some unique rewards. There are various puzzles and hidden rewards to be found.
      • Rewards = http://www.uoguide.com/Treasures_of_the_Kotl_City
    • Season 4

I am not sure as I have not played Real UO (OSI etc..) in a long time, but cannot find anything on these being seasonal, I'll admit all the uo sites may be outdated..

I went to get mace & shield glasses from blackthorns and realized its seasonal, well darn ok I'll go try for Dr. Lenses and well..

I know ToTs and Khaldun is seasonal but are the other 2 seasonal or is this a heritage only change?

If it is heritage only and the intent is to give more attention to other content i would rather see custom updates or revamping to the other content to give incentives to run them rather than restricting content to few months out of the year.

The way I feel, I love that Heritage has its Summer Festival, fall festival, winter festival and all that. I love and look forward to those events but I'd also personally like to see some of these new seasonal events not restricted.
We have the seasonal customs that give us incentive to play year round and I enjoy those but restricting other content to seasonal is a bit Meh... I understand it gives incentive and raises value but hell if you want to do that than just make the drop rate harder not restrict me from playing the game except for a few months a year.. give me and the players as much content as you can so I'm never bored, theres always another dungeon always another item etc. But by restricting it I feel some players will just say alright I'll be back for my item when its next December or whatever till then I'll play my other game.. idk, I understand increasing the value by doing this but it makes the game more limited personally how I feel.

The seasons on Blackthorns dungeon is a custom and we plan to keep it this way. Blackthorns dungeon was a copout since all it did was copy existing items already in the game, that could be obtained other places. This will not be changing.

KOTL city does not even give drops anymore and is a retired event on EA UO.

Understood, any chance for a blackthorns rewards revamp? Give it some custom rewards then a grand reopening? Or is that too much?

Edit:
Maybe split the rewards too, make the fel blackthornes give more pvp oriented gear and the trammel more pve?

Seasons are fine I think, but they are too long and too far away from each other.
What about make them only WEEK long and switch for another? More content. Dont have to wait while year to have a chance for my item and can show new "event" to newbies every week. + you can change tiers of these seasons (like tokuno is). Maybe add custom item for each season with low chance to drop?
You will have your rarity. We will have our content :)

...just talking, please dont kill me.

I too believe the wait is too long, I would rather just see these as weekend style events, on a rotation.. But sounds like you made your choice.. I dont step into dungeons enough to even really care.. TBH

Season 1 (Treasures of Tokuno) is almost ending and Season 2 will start March 1st.

Season 2
  • Blackthorn's Dungeon
  • From March to May players will be able to access Blackthorn's Dungeon. This dungeon allows you to collect Minax artifacts to turn in at the entrance for powerful rewards. Almost all of these rewards can be obtained in other ways through the year like by doing Community Collections and Peerless.

Still think that Elamor has the best idea with this system ;P

You just can't run through the castle with them, it's due to how it is used for RP on UO.

As soon as you enter the dungeon there is a hitching post to grab whatever pet you need.

Yea, too far away...
Tokuno artifacts gave me a reason to hunt more on those islands. And is not Blackthorn dungeon is live all the time on OSI (just wondering...)?
Still those events are great) , except I will only be able to farm my Shroud in Blackthorn Dungeon in 3-4 years, but that just very lazy/noobish me :)

It is but almost all the items in Blackthorns can be obtained by other means. (Peerless and Community Collections)

We also have two more seasons to add into the mix that will change some of these time lines around.

- Treasures of Doom https://uo.com/wiki/ultima-online-wiki/seasonal-events/halloween-treasures-of-doom/

And

- Treasures of Sorcerers Dungeon - https://uo.com/wiki/ultima-online-wiki/seasonal-events/halloween-treasures-of-the-sorcerers-dungeon/

Even though these limited events, that no longer spawn on UO, existed during Halloween we plan on adding them at other times.

We also still plan on having a Summer and Fall festival each year with custom content and rewards.

Winter & Spring? Too? maybe instead of doing something completely new every year, bring back some of the old stuff? and just add too it? I really loved the one when you shut down recalling into LLs, and did the festival there.. That was one of your best ones IMO

We may actually move more towards a Summer and Winter only.

Spring was always a minor one, the LL one was a summer one.

I already have a great plan set up in my mind for this years Summer one but we can look at re-doing some of the older ones, except with new rewards.
