High Seas Test
High Seas Test was a special shard where players can go to test out the Adventures on the High Seas booster expansion as part of an open Beta. It is created using a copy of the Origin shard. Players can manually set their Skills and Stats to whatever settings and combinations they choose on the fly. Resources, artifacts and many other items are provided for free to facilitate testing as well. It went online September 24, 2010 and, after two weeks of testing, was closed October 7, 2010.
Players had to download a preview version of the Ultima Online game client to be able to connect to the shard:
This special client was only usable with the test and not on normal production shards.
