I have been really curious about UO for a couple of years. I tried the free trial once for a short time, but was turned off by the graphics. That's stupid and superficial, I know now, and I want to give it a real try looking at the game itself and what it is.
I hope I've *matured* a bit as a gamer and I want a deep and open world to explore and other players to meet and interact with who are hopefully more mature than the usual people you meet in a lot of the big popular games.
My basic questions are:
1. Is a lone wolf play-style viable to start with? I don't know how much time I will be able to commit and I feel kind of pressured in a guild right off the bat. Like in Darkfall, it was almost necessary to join a clan to survive and prosper. I don't want to feel like I need to be in a guild. And I'm not in a hurry to level up. I'm more of an explorer type.
2. Do you recommend a specific shard ? I'm not averse to PvP, but I don't like continuous and senseless ganking.
3. Is UO full-loot ffa pvp on the pvp server?
4. Is there a central place (a specific wiki) that is best to read up and study UO?
Thanks in advance.
