    I've been running with Bountiful Harvest Perk for nearly a year and build up a massive stock of resources. New players are at a massive disadvantage compared to veteran players. Is anything being done for them to narrow the gap? Ex young players get the bonus during their entire young career?

    I think young players will be fine. Looking at the big picture thing will even out. Plus the craftable market has been near rock bottom for prices. This will bring prices up and getting the perk will allow someone to increase their profits.

    So today I found this on the http://discord.uoforever.com trade chat:
    wts harvest perk https://i.gyazo.com/fbd31502eac5c1176b756f64465b1808.png 100k

    So what have we learned:
    • They decay after 14 days
    • UTC is the official timezone indicator of the shard
    • Some people still don't use a 24:00 time based system
    • The duration of the consumable is 2,5h's (150 minutes)

    Are the pet xp perks active now? Anyone know how much the bonus is? 2x? 50%? 25%?

    Do all the perks have the same "bonus"? (for example, are they all 2x or it varies?)

    Thanks

    All perks are active. It varies in % increase, we won't be releasing the exact values at this time but you could probably calculate the difference.

    Does the % vary like the duration can vary on each one? i.e. Pet XP could be 25% or 50%. Or is there a single % for each type? i.e. Pet XP is always X%, Pet Relic XP is always Y%?

    I tested out the Pet XP perk. XP from a demon went from ~480 to ~720.

    It is quite intense trying to farm non-stop for 3 hours to make best use of it though:D

    I can confirm pretty much the same xp gain, gives a nice boost. I also did the 3hr perk which seemed to last forever.

    Has anyone tested these since the apparent buff? Or is the buff not in yet?

    I was using one mid afternoon yesterday and an abnormal dread spider paragon with 7400 hp was giving me just under 10k xp.

    What would that have given you normally?

    Sorry. I should also say i was farming with two pets. I didnt add what the steed gained. It usually only takes a fraction of what the dragon does. So the spiders total is actually north of 10k. Without any perk all mobs give 1:1 hp to xp to pets.

    With the removal of platinum coins the initial change for paragon chests was to drop a converted amount of gold. This has been changed/removed. They will now have a chance to drop one of these perk items in replacement.

    Please see this link in reference to the removal of platinum coins:

    [9:07 PM] Furync: So if paragon chests now have a chance to have a perk inside, when does the timer of said perk start? When the chest drop or when the chest is opened? I just want to know if I can still stockpile the chests for a while and open em all at once.... @eppy thank you.

    [9:08 PM] eppy: when it is created

    [9:08 PM] eppy: so open them bad boys
