    Ya, you seriously need to reconsider this. You will loose A LOT of high bids with this being part of the auction. Mainly, since you are advertising a potential 1 of 1 lantern, that is colored..... it will go for a TON. IF you accept anonymous bids, people may think you are hijacking the price up to your benefit, resulting in loss of bids. If you remove the anonymous bids, you could sell for 1-3bil. IF you decide to keep it... you will get WAY less than what it could go for. Just saying, you need to rethink this.

    Decadence would want this really bad. She is an EXTREME lantern collection, and I know she will pay top dollar for lanterns that she doesn't have. But if she feels the OP is making up prices, just so the OP can get more gold. I wouldn't count on getting bids from her?

    Do you see what I'm saying, trying to help. Not trying to offend you. :)

    If, by "good" you also mean "ridiculously wealthy in UO gold", I agree!

    Wow! That is what I call entering an auction with authority!

    Good lord! What does this lantern do that I'm unaware of? Varrius, I have an item or two that I'll sell for 5b. *searches through dumpsters for pink lanterns*

    As I said, if the OP was still accepting private bids, she probably wouldn't have gotten this outstanding offer, or maybe she would have. Good luck to the OP and the bidders, this is gonna be one heck of a show. :)

    If this item were duped and there were say "100s" then surely anyone can provide a location to atleast ONE other. This has not been the case I have spoken to several people asking if they have found any other or any sort of proof that is not a one of a kind. Everyone has come up blank. Im sure every bidder has also looked into as these "allegations" that have been made i haven't had a single complaint from a single bidder saying they've found anything against it. I will continue to wait for Proof to be submitted (while I myself will also continue to look into it) until then i am sticking to this is a 1:1 item.

    It has never left the Sellers hands until it has been put up for auction and will not pass hands until the winner of this auction / a reputable broker has claimed it.

    Okay, all this bickering like 5 year olds is getting us no where. How about you guys actually act like adults here and actually provide proof on this lantern. This is indeed an auction and is only intended to be auction-related posts. However, this is a dire question that needs to be resolved because believe it or not, 5bil is a lot of gold to spend on an item for something that exist in a larger amount. Even though I disagree with him SO many times, and absolutely hate his attitude towards the community as a whole, do what "TheMan2010" did regarding his robe. Email Mesanna all the information you were given, along with a picture of the lantern and title of lantern. Ask her to please verify weather it is unique or not.

    This will solve this issue of weather or not multiple were given out at that event. As was discussed previously by a earlier post.

    To solve the issue of weather or not it is duped. Now this is REALLY impossible to do, unless another one appears. IF it was intended to be a unique, and another does appear, then obviously it is duped.

    Now I'm not sure why everyone is throwing the 'dupe' word around, because it does alert SO many people. And as previously discussed, duping is STILL around. But to throw that word out there WITHOUT any solid proof is ludicrous and stupid. Because now, you have everyone pointing fingers at each other and playing the "blame game."

    This thread was meant to be an auction and I hope it will stay that way. Unless ANYONE can provide solid proof weather or not it is duped or even if there are more in the game, I advise all the bickering to cease immediately, because I bet this thread is on the brink of being closed if it doesn't. If you feel the need not to bid because you are weary about the quantity, than don't bid. But if you have the gold, and you REALLY want the item, and it really doesn't matter how many is out there. Than what are you really loosing.

    I wish the OP luck and the bidders luck on this item. :)

    After talking to more people along with people in this thread saying there are 5 of them and/or duped, I need to retract my offer which is a shame. I really wanted a one of a kind lantern especially one that said Mystic in it considering that is my main template.

    Sorry for having to retract.

    Well, let's wait until they put in the dupe detection bug on vendors. They keep talking about it so its gotta be soon i hope. That way a broker can simply put it on vendor to see if its the real thing and go from there. :)

    Yes, let's see if Dupe Detection (TM) gets published with the 95% DCI change!!!

    I'm not saying it's a pipe dream...

    But it's a pipe dream.

    Alright folks. In the interest of the public being informed, I'm going to let the CURRENT posts stay. Please unless there is further proof such as directions to one locked down in-game, etc... refrain from dragging this thread further into the abyss.

    This item... like almost anything in this game... may be duped. It could be that this item is more than 1 vs 1 and until EM Helios confirms or denies. The only real way to prove the current count is to have Mesanna look into it and be willing to give a statement as to an accurate count. That being said with ANY large transaction I would encourage folks to use a safe third party to trade the gold/lantern for both the safety of the seller and the buyer.

    Now this moderator is going to go have her coffee and take my kids to school... when I come back, I will take another look at the above threads and start handing out spankings for ones I deem to be RoC violations. I would suggest you edit your posts if you are concerned before I return. You'll have a couple hours, so use them before I come back.

    Well considering EM Helios is no longer an EM, you might be waiting a long time for that.

    Thanks for the info. :) I don't hardly ever attend EM events due to RL, I'll take your word for it. Folks will have to find an alternative way to double check the original drop.

    Alright, thread has been cleaned up. I've left a few posts to alert bidders that the quantity of the item has been questioned.

    Any buyer who is concerned on the quantity dropped or if the item should do some research and make the decision of whether or not they choose to bid. The concern has been raised and it is up to the buyers to investigate the items they want to buy.

    My advice for the seller is to wait until the release of the anti-dupe check via vendors and/or extend the auction to allow current bidders or potential bidders time to look into the item further for their own reassurance.

    Now, let's keep this thread clean folks. Nabin has current high bid of 1.2b.

    Stratics was seemingly having problems at the end of this auction. You won't accept bids for this?
