    Hello everyone, I just wanted to take this time and tell you all that Europa Traders suit has been paid for. Therefore no further donations are required. Supposedly some folks are attempting scam festival goers by attempting to collect donations.

    Be Safe!

    Thats cool !

    Just wondering, what happened with the gold excedent on the donations? cause i think the sum of the donated gold plus the items donated that were auctioned reached more than 1.1b

    I would also like to say to be aware of certain people trying to scam. They ask you to bring your rares item with you to trade for thiers then open a fel gate quickly on top of a tram gate. I saw the flash of red and called them out on it and they broke party. Typical.:bored:

    Good warning on the gates. Always ask them to meet you at the location rather than go through an unknown gate.

    Well the 2nd helm that was also on auction was sold for 250m so dont see why the suit cant be worth 1,2b or event more. But it was later stolen and when you get into rares and collecting you will learn a lot of items are worth a lot. Hey I sold a mini Cherry tree (1 of 10) for 530m Expecting worth 300m but it went for more.... not long ago the Sparkled Dress from thing went for 850m also a (1 of 10) Some people just have the gold and doesnt know what to spend it on because they keep getting a lot of gold.

    Having worked in collectibles for many years, you learn that the value anything is what someone is willing to pay for it. Even when it seems outrageous to everyone else.

    Too bad i need to quote myself on this, but i havent received an answer yet.

    So far the info I've seen is:

    So.. where is the -updated- info about how much gold was donated and how much these items were auctioned for? and, what happened with the excedent?

    Thanks.

    Well I can't say how much it came to since I didn't actually do the gold collecting. The list should be updated though, so we get the amounts right. Angel Dust actually ended up donating 30 mill and not 15 in the end and I don't believe either of the other donated items ended up selling in the auction.
    So the gold totals I have are as follows:

    GOLD
    Angel Dust 30 Mill
    Manticore 100 Mill
    Faeryl 25 Mill
    Gareth 50 Mill
    Wootsauce 100 Mill
    Europa Trader 100 Mill
    Apetul 50.000.001 Mill
    Blend 100 Mill
    Clops 100 Mill

    ITEMS
    Athelas Babycakes Oven - 320 Mill
    Restroom Cowboy An Kal Lem Statue -Didn't meet reserve
    Tam Fibril Of The Gyre Of Existence - (buyer says 125 mill)
    Promathia Unwilling Victim Of Bellatrix Adhara's Crystal Widow Abomination - No sale
