Staff member
Things on this list may change or be modified and will be updated accordingly. As well more will be added to the list as they come to mind or we add them.

To see all available commands in game:

  • Type [MyCommands
General Server Quality of Life Features
  • Group Loot and Tiered Champion Spawns
  • Resource gathering in all facets is equal. There is no reason to not gather in Felucca or Trammel.
  • Enhanced guild system is implemented. Old guildstones still available from gold sink vendor in Zento.
  • Skill gain is quick so you get more time to adventure in the world and less time macroing a skill up for a more organic experience.
  • Don't worry quick skill gain will not deter your new player experience as this ERA is very item dependent so at 100 skill you will still need good gear to survive!
  • Your Health is always 25% more than OSI standards. So if you have 100 str normally you would have 100 health. But on UOAlive you have 125. This benefits PvE to reduce one hits and allow you to last longer in battles while maintaining balance.
  • The enhanced client works for updated graphics as well as ClassicUO, Orion, Razor Enhanced, and UOSteam.
  • Use our custom Portal System to get to points of interest faster!
  • hJVQh6w.png
  • Gold is account-wide.
  • Dropping gold coins in your bank box adds them to your account's balance. To pull out gold, use the "withdraw <amount>" command at a bankteller.
  • To trade gold you can just type the amount anywhere in the world in a trade window:
  • wbr5t2c.png
  • Moonstones drop at the Magincia Stone Exchange to easily traverse from Felucca to Trammel without magic. Just pick them up off the ground!
  • Buying and selling when overweight will cause gold or items to be placed directly in your bank instead of falling to your feet.
  • Non-young players can still finish quests in Haven.
  • Potions stacks
  • Mark Scrolls require NO magic ability to use! So get some scrolls and enjoy marking your way around the world for free!
  • Runebook use cooldown reduced to 1 second from 7.
  • Using an equipped Skinning Knife on a corpse will automatically cut and loot any hides the corpse may drop.
  • Male characters can ride unicorns too.
  • Female Characters can ride Kirin
  • Visual enhancements for Runebooks and Atlases!
  • Increased amount of reagents that vendors stock.
  • Skinning knife puts leather in bag.
  • Gold Vendor sell Trapped Pouches with 30 charges.
  • There are special trash barrels and bags available near Brit West Bank. These generate special currency used for certain rewards.
  • Stealth is automatically checked and re-checked when walking while hidden.
  • Player Vendor History of your sales is now available (nice work @anathemort ).
    • To access open your Vendor and click "View Sales History"
    • This will bring up the new Ledger of your last 25 sales with the buyer, sell price, list date, and sell date!
      Drag over the Item on the left to get your Description of the item you wrote when putting it on your vendor as well as item details.
  • You can gain Spellweaving bonuses without needing other players at the arcane circle in Britain. A gate has opened in Trammel Britain Bank that will bring you to the Arcanist Circle in Fel to get a spellweaving stone without needing other players. There is a gate back on the other side.
  • Bards have new items available via the Monty Python Questline on UOAlive to help enhance their experience and give them a boost in power they needed.
  • Global chat can be viewed in Discord for ease of access!

  • Removed all restrictions for humans to wear Elvish items.
  • The PURE Bard adjustment(a great suggestion from @jc473 allowed us to give you all a better support role:
    Mastery Switching is now reduced to 3 minutes for Bards. This means if you have the following skills: Musicianship, Discordance, Peacemaking, and Provocation.

    Without the skills above
  • You can craft bags as a tailor in any color cloth you wish!
  • "Claim List" just got a whole lot more useful!

    Drag over their name to see their Bond info, min taming req, control slots, and loyalty.
The Harmony Of Heroes Milestone brought a ton of new QoL features!

New Player Dungeon and Helpful NPCS

  • A new New Player Dungeon was created in New Haven(we really want to hammer home the new player experience and make it as educational and accessible as possible!), this will be an ongoing creation after the patch. No more "mines" as a dungeon. This has wings, progression, and a much more distinct feel to get players used to what they are going to go up against!
  • Added more helpful NPCs to roam New Haven that give actual useful information.(Again trying to make that "New Player" experience more immersive, less Google) Scotty finally says helpful shit!

  • Added NPCs around the world to give it more of the "living breathing world" feel that we always intended but got a little distracted on. Some will even react differently depending on your Karma and other factors. More to come, but good start here.

Secondary Skills DO NOT count toward skillcap


Learn all about UOAlive's Custom Taming Systems / Custom Spawns / Rare Pets HERE:

Paladin and Combat skill changes:

A major change was done to healing to give melee and paladin chiv builds a major buff since OSI kinda forgot about them. There are SO many options available to you now to not have to be a "sampire" or "tamer" for end game. Check out the patch notes here:

Mage Summoner and Mystic skill changes:

A major change was done to Mages/Mystics to give pure mage builds a major buff since OSI kinda forgot about them. There are SO many options available to you now to not have to be a "sampire" or "tamer" for end game. Check out the patch notes here:

Storage Boxes
Learn About It Here:

The addition of the storage boxes to UOAlive is an amazing improvement for Quality of Life.


Those that regularly do crafting and imbuing will find these particularly useful.

There are a range of different boxes available to store categories of items, some are sorted by resource type, others by expansions. Over 12 Total!

All Boxes can be retrieved from Locked Down location in your house, moved to another house, re-secured and will still contain all contents!

World and expansions

  • We are 100% OSI accurate with all expansions and worlds enabled free of charge!
  • You can recall, mark, and gate to and from Ilshenar!
  • Achievements!!! (type [myachievements in game to see your own progress and be rewarded for completion or [achievements to see others)
    • You gain sovereigns from completing achievements
  • All worlds are CONSENSUAL PVP ONLY. This means you can participate in guild wars and arena battles but cannot loot or kill unsuspecting players. Even in Guild Wars looting of other players is restricted. It is for the fun of it or RP purposes. Not for loot.
  • You can still get the Virtue for killing "reds" by visiting Ocllo and Bucs den, for roaming NPC(non player character) Murderers.

  • You can insure most important items that are not cursed so if you die they do not fall to your corpse and will be with you upon resurrection.
  • If you do lose a body and cannot get to it in time, you can use a corpse collector for a fee in Britain to have it brought to you. You have 1 minute to loot your corpse before his minion literally eats it.

  • A pet resurrection stone in Zento
  • QH1iTGp.png

  • All weapons and armor should show a rarity underneath the name.
    2018-10-25 21_49_12-Photo Collage Maker _ photo-collage.net.png
  • Loot's sell value to vendors scales with the rarity; a [Rare] Longsword will sell for more than a [Common] one.
  • There is a chance to get a statue from any mob you kill, COLLECT THEM ALL!
  • RCULpO8.png
  • There are hundreds of these available for EVERY creature you kill!
  • There are rares and stealables all over the server. Nearly 500+ to steal, pickup, or grab on a server restart. Daily rares to custom, there is something for everyone!

A List of Stealable Artifacts & Rares / Daily Rares / Custom Rares & Stealables - Work In Progress



  • House decay timers are dynamic between 50-70 days. This means after 50- 70 days of not refreshing a home it will fall and all items can be taken from the ground.
  • Monsters and players can enter ALL houses. You can still set doors, gates, and teleporters to friends only. But players and monsters will no longer be kicked from a house for trying to go on the steps. This is a major nuisance when fighting in a town with houses. It is also a major flaw when using houses to fight monsters without fear of them entering.
  • You will get a warning message when leaving and entering your home if items are not locked down or secured.


  • Salvage Bags are available for sale from Provisioners.
  • Scribes can create Spellbooks and Necromancy Spellbooks, as well as Necromancy scrolls with modifiers. Mysticism books too!
  • Bod Banking is 5% for small bods and 50% for Large! Up from 1% for both!
  • Custom Plants and Trees along with a robust Flower and Plant Growing system. Cross Breeding, gardening, and more! You can even get "Dungeon Plants and Trees" from certain mobs in game!


  • Dungeon chests now drop RARES!
  • We reduced the amount of empty Dungeon chests! So if ya see one, it prolly has goodies!
  • Dungeon Chests drops are increased!

Brit Crafting Area

  • There's a sawmill that will cut logs into boards for you.
  • Get the BRITCOIN(BTC) bonus here while you craft!
  • It also has a Special Forge!

BOD system changes

Champion Spawns:

Treasure Hunting
  • Treasure maps currently use the era-accurate positioning system, but drop the enhanced loot introduced in a later publish.
  • Enhancements were made to drops and loot tables.
Tank wanna-be's...

Players can now double click any shield and target an enemy they wish to taunt. If the taunt is successful, the enemy will attack the player wielding the shield.
Currently, the chance of taunting an enemy is the players parry skill vs the creature's barding difficulty.

This means that enemies that are bard immune are also taunt immune.

Magincia Stone Exchange And In Game Currencies

Magical Stones are in Magincia, you can get there via the Moongate's "Special Locations". You can buy all sort of wonders at these!






***There are no donation stones as this is a donation free server. All items can be obtained in game.***

UI Changes
  • The Buff Box works.
  • Enhanced Client works.
  • The skill title shown on your paperdoll will also be shown on hover of your character. Left click character to control titles.
  • [organizeme command will, well, organize you.
  • [bondinfo to check when a pet will be bonded with you

  • [ReDeed will put any house deco item that needs an axe to make it a deed again a deed again without needing an ax!

Points of interest:
  • There are multiple player run establishments that can be found on the Special locations tab of the public moongates, such as taverns, public rune libraries, etc.
  • Hang out in our upgraded beautiful central hub of Zento with player vendors and relaxing atmosphere! it is blessed and will drop double the Kudo's when in this area preparing for your next mission!
