Young Player

When you set foot in Britannia for the very first time, you will be considered a “young” player and be granted certain privileges and rights as such. Shards like Siege Perilous and Mugen (Siege shards) are shards for advanced players only. Players with “Young” status cannot access them. This status grants you certain forms of protection unavailable to more experienced players, including:

  • Young players may not damage other players, nor may other players damage young players.
  • Monsters that would normally react in a hostile manner will not attack young players unless they are quest monsters. (you will receive a message in your journal if a monster wants to attack you so you can learn which monsters are hostile)
  • Young players will be teleported to a healer upon dying and will retain any belongings.
  • Young players can insta-log anywhere.
  • Young players may not loot monsters they did not kill for two minutes after the death of the monster.
  • Other players may not loot monsters killed by young players.
  • Young players may not steal from other players or NPCs.

Losing Young Player Status

“Young” status is affected by your total playtime with your account, and is not calculated on a per-character basis. A player loses their “Young” status if they spend more than 40 hours logged into UO and have more than 450 total skill points.
Players can also end their “Young” status by saying the words, “I renounce my young player status”.
