[Price Check] A Crystal Ball

Discussion in 'UO Rares Collector' started by Maddin, Aug 29, 2008.

    I got this ball on a 2nd account and have never seen anything like this before on any vendor and I'm a real shopaholic.

    It says,
    "Crystal Ball"
    "Looking into the crystal ball,Thou doth see swirling
    mists in which words form ' Ask and be answered'

    "Seller's discription"
    Looking into the crystal ball,Thou doth see swirling
    mists in which words form ' Ask and be answered'


    I thought it odd with the sellers description right under it.


    Any help would be appreicated.

    its a double description one "ask and be answered" - not uber rare, but not that common, either.
    my brain is a little fuzzy due to illness, so will let someone else post a price. i have 3 i think, heh.
    you double click it and it'll give you an '8 ball' kind of answer...yes, no, not a good idea, ect ect
     
  3. I have that same ball with the same sellers description hoping its worth something.

    About 100k.

    The full range I see them listed for is 40k to 600k.

    Best of luck.

    Get well soon, Feath.

    Thank you.

    Wasn't really interested in selling it just liked to know the history so to speak.
     
  6. Was one of the items that came with the 2nd Anniversary of the Public Release of UO on Sept 24, 1999.

    That set included:

    Commemorative Plate
    'A plate decorated with a beautiful painting of Mondain's defeat as the Gem of Immortality shatters.' that could be obtained by players at kiosks that appeared in Britain and Vesper

    Happy 300th Anniversary! Holiday Gift Bags: a bag, purple, blue or green, containing the following items:

    a crystal ball "Looking into the crystal ball, thou doth see swirling mists in which words form.'Ask and be answered.'" says random negative or positive answers like a magic 8 ball. Blessed!

    commemorative coin
    a coin 'In Commemoration : the 300th anniversary of Mondain's defeat.', when clicked gives ankh or serpent as heads or tails. Blessed!

    Jaana's Hangover remedy
    double click on it to nullify the effects of being intoxicated with alchoholic beverages, limited uses !. Blessed!

    a fireworks wand
    note: doesn't say number of charges as in the past. Blessed!

    JUST PUT IT ON A VENDOR AND TAKE IT BACK OUT, AND ITS KEEPS THE SELLERS DESCRIPTION..no idea why but alas it does...

    PRICE 50-100K

    lock it down in your house and it goes back to normal.

    Hmmmm. . . Mine has been locked down, in my house, for years and still has the double message. Do I need to unlock and relock it or something?

    No need to fix it, these are worth at least twice as much WITH the bugged double message.

    Placing them in a vendor removes the double message, unless inside of its own bag. The value goes down to 25k though.

    Been so long I can't remember what exactly were the steps but it can be done.

    Why on earth would it be worth anything more because it is bugged? And quite easily bugged?

    If we are speaking of plain 'crystal ball' versus the 8-ball type with the dual "looking into..." there is quite a price difference. Just telling it how it is.

    i recently took off my ask and be answered ball from my vendor, and put it in my pack. it lost it's double tag.
    I put the ball BACK ON the vendor, and typed in a new description, and the double tag CAME BACK.
    I'm not sure if it remains on lock down, cause i dont have a house on that shard. But, iirc, it happened on my home shard, where the double tag shows on lock down. Someone else will need to re-test this.
