    I just came into possession of a set of [practice weapon]s, consisting of a crook, a longsword, a hatchet, a skinning knife, a spear and a mace. I know the crooks and longswords are a dime a dozen, but is there any value in the set as a whole? Also, is it missing any pieces?

    I also have two neon gift-boxes (or possibly just one; the yellow one looks neon to me but I might just be hallucinating), and a Primitive Trinket.

    I'm on Baja, if it helps. Thank you in advance!

    Unfortunately you are missing an item from your set and it is the most valuable of them (in fact, the only valuable one). That is the battle axe. You might get 100-150k for what you have, but don't advertise it as a full set as that could turn folks off.

    Primitive Trinket is an event item from Baja - Drop count is 20. Not sure on a price as event items have been selling for a wide range lately.

    The left box is a neon one and probably a value of around 25m. The right one doesn't appear to be a neon box from what I can see.
    You can see a picture of the neon gift boxes in the past event items thread here: http://stratics.com/community/threads/em-event-items-rubbles-server-births.98800/

    Good luck!

    Yeah, I have dozens of the other pratice weapons. However, I only have one or two of the battle axes. I use to have them on every shard but over the years I had them all transfered to atlantic.

    Thanks for the responses! I'd actually never seen any of the practice weapons beside the crook and the sword, so I had no idea what they were worth or how many were in a set. Now that I know, I'll lock them away somewhere until I get a battle axe. :)

    I think I had my yellow gift box mixed up with the duller neon gold. It looked shiny to me, so I got overexcited.

    Thanks again!

    That may very well be blaze, Which is NOT one of the two offical rare ones, ie Europa Gold and Burning Amber, best get someone who runs the EC client and Pinco hue picker, it will tell you if it is blaze, if it is thats 100m right there as it is uber rare nowdays

    Also please bear in mind (i keep saying this, wish Manti would add a note to the "list") the list is NOT complete, before i quit the game i was convinced there are/were over 120 neon boxes in total, just think about the angel boxes for example, the Haochi pigments,Battle chicken eggs,Easter Baskets,Mel hair dyes,Pigments of Tokuno and rare parrots, these are recycled hues used in game so there WAS a ninja black box, Frostwood,Dryad green,Midnight blue boxes for example, there is a very GOOD chance that box is blaze!!!!!!

    Though i have never seen a liquid gold box, that would just hurt the eyes!!!!

    Most of the collectors there do not have a complete collection they mistake dryad green for ice green,as well as others, though close, 2 diff boxes, only Pinco hue picker can tell for sure!

    bhcxkjvbvjox I already trashed it OY GEYVALT

    ETA: Thanks for the information. :) If I get another weird-looking box, I'll ask someone with the EC to check it out! For the time being, I'll just tell myself it was a regular yellow box to save myself the grief.

    Well to make you feel better it was not blaze, however, if i was in game i would have passed you 100m ;)

    Not that it will make you feel any better, but for a few years now i have been expaining, in obssessed detail to the like of Manticore that "that" list, from 2008 is not complete blah,blah

    take comfort from the fact, you are not the first, or last to do this, imagine how many *hundreds/thousands* good boxes have been turned in or lost since the big idocs falls of late

    with over 120 boxes there was never gonig to be a complete set, the angel boxes however, erm 21 i believe thats a nice collection and very achieveable as they introduced 2 drop events for them

    i think i had 57 "neon" boxes until i left, and i have a picture of a blaze box, and if i remember there was one of display on the south coast of Zento Atl

    also remember 100m is not alot of gold anymore, so sure you can make it up!!!!!

    That list was based on pre EC Pinco days, instead of just "neon" boxes, it could be explained that "named" boxes are important too, like, dryad green, frostwood blue, midnight blue, voilet courage purple etc and of course, the natural dyes hues so light red, they are all out there, so possible inexcess of 150 neon/named boxes

    many collector have luna white boxes, which are different to pure aos white, if that was me i would have not rested until i had both, which i did, and was proud to display to the non believers!

    yes, i was obssessed, and yes it drove me mad

    once again THANKS PINCO!!!!!!
