Dawn's Music Box
Weight: 1 Stone
4 Common Tracks

Once a great man, Lord Blackthorn's body & soul became twisted by the power of Exodus. Seeking total control over Sosaria, he led a fearsome army, cutting down all who opposed him. Sosaria's salvation lay in a simple peasant named Dawn who valiantly opposed the corrupted Lord and led the people of Sosaria to victory. This music box was given to Dawn in gratitude of her achievements.

Dawn's Music Box was introduced as an 8th Anniversary gift. It is dedicated to UO's fifth year, September 2001 to September 2002. You can use a 8th Anniversary Token to claim one. During the 9th Anniversary, Heritage Tokens were given out which could also be used to get one.

Common and Uncommon music gears are dropped by Golems, Blackthorn Juggernauts and Betrayers. Rare music gears can only be found on the Paragon versions (with the exception of Veritae's Music Box Gear, which was only available from a now defunct quest). Alternatively, Sutek's Dirty Gear Suteks dirty gear.png, the reward of the quest Perfect Timing, will give a random gear.

There is a slight chance for rare gears to drop as loot on the bodies of renowned creatures in the Stygian Abyss mini champ spawns. The three rare gears introduced with Publish 66 also sometimes drop as loot on the bodies of the Volcano Elementals in The Great Volcano of Eodon.
