    many rare items that are worth millions may look like normal junk items, most of these are "server Births" these items will look like items you can currently get in game from other means but are worth anywhere from a few million gold to a few hundred million depending on the items.so please be carefull what you throw away or let decay. with the massive amount of houses going quite a few of these relics will be in the mix and i know for me and i can safely speak for the entire rares community that these need to be rescued.

    here is a small list of some items you should look out for that could easily be mistaken for current items.

    a book (looks like the minning sand book graphic or glassblowing graphic)
    a kettle(looks like the cauldron you get from grizeldas quest)
    full vials/empty vials (same graphic as the craftable full vial rack/empty vial rack)
    pitcher ( looks like proximuses stien)
    a golden goblet(looks like a gold colored goblet you craft..server birth!
    bloody bandage (looks like a regular bandage)
    bones (looks like the bone containers you get from ant lions, theres 2 types ones that are containers they are not that rare, then there are ones that are not containers those are worth millions)
    ANY Doom stealable artifact was once a server birth so look carefully if they do not have a artifact rarity on them they could be a server birth. just as a example a skull with candle (lit or unlit) could net 25-45mil!
    other items that are considered valuable would be items such as aos roses,older christmass items,furs ect.. some of these can net you millions of gold.
    rubble! certain pieces of rubble are extreamly rare and could net you tens if not hundreds of mills in gold and some of these look like junk.

    the golden rule is if you dont know save it and do a little of research, worse case scenario go onto the rares forum and check the resourses or put up a post, one of us would be happy to answer questions.

    lets save some of our history, if you dont want the items then you can sell to those of us who would covet the items. lets just not let them decay into oblivion!

    Dont forget to look at your paintings! I know many of you look down on them but did you know there are Server Birth ones?

    They look just like the average every day painting but have no tag line that says shipwreck item.
    They are very rare and I fear if you do not look close many will go in the trash bin as points!

    Books as Yanaki2 said comes in 3 sizes... and different directions, Tarrot cards like the doom stealable, many might just pop in the trash not knowing how valuable they are.


    Have fun and keep your eyes open! You just might find a real rare of your own!

    I guess that actually looking at them would be better than trying to match up some text. Are these items displayed anywhere in pics so that one might actually look at what they look like?

    Even better, if one can make a post in this thread displaying them it would be even better.

    this is so funny!

    we were at a IDOC and everything was picked over and people had cleared out, a guild mate was standing looking in a chest and he left, and i was looking at all the skull and candles that where laying around, and the one that had been right behind my guild mate didnt come up with a "artifact rarity" tag.

    so i walked over and picked it up.

    *YOINK*

    25-45 mill

    Same here Poo. Got a server skull candle as well and tons of server births at the falls people passed up. Though I will say this was the most civil fall i have been at and i was on 4 shards worth. (there was a break out of mehem in fel but you expect that)

    The seen was quickly gobbled up.. but in those boxes in bags was tons of things hidden and looking so normal.... Then there was the digging under stuff... many wouldnt take the time to move a few plants to get the goodies hidden under in the tiny poochies! I am so glad this is not a usual event I am dog tired and wore to a thin thread....

    I think that players (like me) using the EC client has a BIG advantage over CC users at idocs... we dont need to move stuff arround in chests to see whats in it.... the grid view is great for this... and also list view is very helpfull. :)

    Just sayin ;)

    I haven't been very active the past several years, but I picked up a 3 prong lockpick at an idoc last night specifically because I remember it being rare.

    There was 5 people camping it that didn't seem to notice it, so I figure:

    1) never rare
    2) was rare, but got reused
    3) is rare and they were clueless

    little help please?

    Is there any guide to what rubble is desirable? I found a piece that doesn't show up on any vendors. It's the metal arm that a sign would hang off of.
