These aren't a part of the achievement system, or veteran rewards. Why would they be displayed in an area showing off veteran rewards?

What id like to understand is how when going from 7th year to 8th year you gain 1 point to spend in the new vet system.... i cant purchase a thing with 1 vet point is that a bug... glitch... or just a way of tell old players hey you been here to long here is 1 point to piss you off

if your on month 11 of your 7th year then when you get to 8th year your only due 1 point. as far as I know vet points are 1 per month no matter what month your on.

I completely agree with the staff on this subject! I find it to be pretty clear that a mount on wich is written "60 months vet reward" is not made to be used by players of every age. And as +R mentionned, in doubt, ask support... I am actually quite shocked that some member of UOEX community can come on this forum and crtiticize the staff (who have generously spent countless hours for us to put toghetter theses fantastic vet rewards), while, imo, it is themself and their own greed their fingers should be pointing at.

You don't. You gain 1 point per month that you are active.

so if you want something from the current year you just hit you just need to wait 9 months to get it or save for 9 months.... that makes since. Congrats your 8 years now on the shard just need to wait 9 more months before you can purchase anything from this section lol... whats the break down on how many eds to buy more points

Rossi, you should have at least 70+ points. All points were reset retroactively when the revamp happened. So the only way you can't afford the next year vet reward is if you went nuts on rewards right after the revamp.

The "veteran reward: X months" is known throughout all shards that only players that old can use it. And it was like this for ethies on this shard as well, until the upgrade which came with a bug. Only a player younger than 6 months that never played another shard, and never played any other game with veteran rewards, could consider that these can be used even by newbies.

As for the points, yes you get 1 point per active month. But different rewards open up at different times... so if you want that reward that costs 6 veteran points and open at 3 years, you can either first spend all points and then have to wait another 6 months, or you can save the points up (plan ahead) so you have enough points when the reward for a certain age opens up for you.

Out of curiosity, how were the items and years decided upon? I am 3.5 years and would greatly like to have the Rune footprints, but this is a 7 year reward. There does not seem to be a huge issue with footprints like there is with ethy mounts. Footprints mostly seem like an extension of your Character like a piece of armor or item appearance or special coloring (dye tubs). With that in mind, could they not have a Reward Cost assigned to them? Perhaps they all cost the same amount, 15 or 20 points for example. The Titles make sense but the rest seems random. I admit that I don't know all the factors that went into those decisions. This is not a complaint. I think the system works well, there are just not too many things on there that I am interested in. Thanks for all you do for us and the shard.

The footprints were sorted by how great they look. A 1-year veteran gets just the floor cracks, and the glow-in-the-dark runes are a 7-year reward.
