Acquiring Tokuno Dyes

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Rocklin, Apr 27, 2009.

    I know that on all North American, Australian and European shards the Tokuno Dyes are currently unavailable. I also understand that the dyes are available on the Asian shards.


    I am wondering if I can purchase the dyes on an Asian shard and transfer them here. How can I pay for them with US currency?

    I play UO as my main hobby. I work two jobs and go to school at the same time. I feel it is worth my money to enhance my game and spend the money to get these items.

    How would I go about doing this?

    I have seen the tokens for sale on player vendors. Might want to hunt around and just buy em in game. I play on cats and saw 2 last night. Mighty expensive if ya ask me for the colors offered. Just my 2gp.

    Is it the full set of dyes, or only selected colors? I figure I would have to get a transfer token and the dye token to move to Sonoma to have them.

    If you'd rather pay in gold I'm sure I have at least one full set I could spare for sale (and cheaper than the 50m). I don't take RL $$. I play on Baja, so message me if you want to set something up. ;)

    Just to add, I have a ton of partial dyes and would sell a mix of whatever you want.

    IDOC'ers like Sarsmi normally have tons of these :D

    Because alot of stuff like tok dyes, roses, AOS clothing, vet rewards tend to just take up space, you will likely be able to buy them off cheap (relatively) from IDOC'ers.

    Psst, hot tip: Bargain for the partial ones! Chronic full-time IDOC'ers will let them go at an even lower price per charge compared to fully charged ones!



    As to the original question, note that the token is purchased from the Japanese online store, not from a Japanese shard. You'll probably need shipping/billing address in Japan though.

    However, some of the Japanese players may be selling the tokens they bought on a vendor. If you do find one, then you need to buy 2 transfer tokens on your home shard, transfer a char with 50 mil (or more) over, buy the dyes (provided no one else had already bought them in the interim), then transfer back with your second transfer token. If you do this, you might want to look into buying some AOS dyed cloth and other souvenirs to sell back home. To at least offset your costs.

    Too much work and uncertainty if you are looking for just dyes. Much better to from an IDOC'er on your home shard if that option is available.

    No transfers where I reside, sire...

    We do have a fairly up-and-coming Japanese guild on our shard though, I wonder if I can work with them to purchase tokens thru EA.jp and sell to me ingame...hmm

    Man is that the truth. I set up an AoS vendor and was selling clothing at 50k and roses at 15k. Sandals were cheap too, I forget what I priced them at. Of course after I managed to get rid of all that stuff a few weeks later I looted a trunk full of AoS stuff again, hah! That's good though, I actually ended up selling too many undyed sandals and realized I didn't save enough to pretty up my characters. :p

    BTW copying my partials price list of ToT I dyes:

    TOT Dyes:

    luna white 4m 80k/charge
    shadow black 4m 80k/charge
    berserker red 3m 60k/charge
    rum red 3m 60k/charge
    violet purple 3m 60k/charge
    invuln blue 3m 60k/charge
    dryad green 3m 50k/charge
    fire orange 2m 40k/charge
    paragon gold 2m 40k/charge
    nox green 2m 40k/charge

    I think thats pretty cheap, even by Baja's standards. But I do charge a little more for the full dyes just because they are pristine and unused and are good for full dye sets. :)

    I have several sets on Oceania 50mill is way too cheap
    come to me with 100mil and then we can talk
    Small shard most dyes gone or wasted so a full set untouched is priceless
    With gold running out of all the cracks around UO this also maybe too cheap

    Repeat tip - Buy the partial ones!! :D You are going to use them anyway and once you use it, it's not going to be a pristine fully charged bottle of dye anymore.

    Sarsmi, do you have a list of your dye-able AOS sandles?



    Now, if they are sellable on Oceania at 100 mil, that's a way to make a 50 mil profit really quickly, minus the costs of 2 transfer tokens of course heh

    Oh, some people like to collect sets of things, and if they missed out on ToT 1 and like dyes (like me) then they'll want to pick up a full set somehow. The partials are of course a better bargain, I mean it's pretty tough to run through 50 dye charges unless you are doing something like making all the furniture in your house white or putting all your characters in matching black armor. :p

    I'll log in and check and write up a list for you!

    Why oh why did I choose the blaze coloured sandles...
