    Greetings, To celebrate the dawn of the season of rebirth an “Enchanted Wheelbarrow” can be claimed on all shards after 2pm ET on April 5, 2018 by veteran accounts for the next 5 days by visiting the Britain Commons and using the genie statue. Enjoy! The genie statues will be placed manually, so please allow some time for placement before visiting the commons. Happy Spring!

    Not that I'm into the planting system but this is still a great gift, as it's functional and gameplay related. Good job and thanks devs :thumbup:

    That's cute and I like the flowers. I hope they are breedable. I have a lot of paint bucket plants to replace.

    So there is no reason to garden now?

    They are the same flowering plants we've always had only these won't look dipped in paint when you dye them.

    Though I did note in the art files some of the plants in there with the partial hueing are "new" that you can't normally grow now whether or not these are going to be able to be obtained in this or not can't say.

    Is it one per character? Shard? Account?

    Also, what is considered to be a veteran account?

    EDIT: And more importantly, where is Britain Commons?

    Veteran accounts I am assuming means no EJ accounts can claim it......and hopefully only one per account...though it would be nice if it was per character on this one...some not so much but this one would be nice :)

    Probably not though...gotta keep those rare plants rare! lol

    It would be nice if we could get all the plants changed to these and make this the current colored plants.

    I wonder what happens if they are clipped

    I think the wheelbarrows can be dyed with natural dyes, but I'm a little fuzzy on exactly what "partially hueable artificial plants" means. How does an artificial plant materialize in the wheelbarrow? (It says "obtain", not "grow"...) Are we dying fake plants with real plants? I feel like there is some kind of social commentary to be made here. I guess we'll see tomorrow.

    Regardless, I am pleased to FINALLY be able to have partially hued plants. Even if they are plastic? :confused:

    Double click the wagon, get a plant in your pack - either a rare hued one, or a white* one. Then you can dye it with natural dyes to suit your decor.

    * the white (dyeable) area is the "flower" part of the plant.

    Only one of the new plants is on TC1, the foxglove around the statue of Blackthorn in the Commons. But, I've seen the rest of the new plant art while snooping in the files.

    ..... east of british commons...... *sigh* - again some of this featureless explanations for no english speaking peoples :spider:


    where plz is this located? .... - is commons a special house or just a place or just a word? East of Britain or British ;) could be everywhere -
    It's like searching nails in hay

    and yes I had a look on Origin where it could be - found nothing -

    Correction: found something on TC - this must be the new Britain Commons *shine*
    but found no genie

    I hate this and love this at the same time.

    1) I love that we now have access to partial hue plants! Something i have wanted for soooooooooooooooooooooooooo long. Decent looking wheelbarrow too!
    2) I hate that they are only available via a limited access gift item rather than just through gardening. I mean really, they could have just given a breath of fresh air to a beloved but somewhat dusty system... instead just have a clicker. :/

    I hope she falls in Love with UO so much that she decides to take the time to update all the art to high res... on her own. But that's just a dream... and she never leaves.

    I'm hoping she took on my Hiryu project... and makes the EC Hiryu look more like it's CC cousin and not some poor plucked mutant turkey.

    I like that it has the shard name on it too, are they all like that?

    An Enchanted Wheelbarrow Handbuilt by the Citizens of Origin

    If so, make sure you pick it on the shard you want, that's cool :)

    1 shard, 1 claim. I just tried.

    So you can get one on every shard per account.

    They do have the name of the shard they were chosen on. They don't however say "Shard Bound". But they can't be used unless they are locked down. So, I wonder if you can take them to your home shard, lock them down there, and then use them all once a day on the same shard.

    devs, thanks for making the gift one per account per shard rather one for every char. I would like to see any pictures of unique rare plants, if any.
