UO has been around for over 20 years and those who have been subscribing the longest, get new sets of rewards for every year. These are called Veteran Rewards and you get a select number of picks each year. Some are very useful while other vet rewards are used mainly in decoration. Any age Account can use the rewards except for shard shield. Anyone can use vet rewards even if they aren't the right age. The age of the account is only for claiming them.
