    Hiyas Everyone :) This is my 1st Auction and 1st time selling anything in this forum. In fact, I've never sold any rares I have obtained and usually give them away to friends when I have extra. I have been playing UO since it started (on the same account) and my characters are pretty well known on Atlantic. I have also been posting on Stratics since around 2003 (a few years longer then my profile says).

    These are a few items that came from ingame events, NOT from EM events. It was suggested by some that I trust to auction off the items rather then sell them ingame, so here I am :).

    Some ground rules :

    1- Auction Ends Sunday 17th May 2015 @ 2100 (9 PM) EST
    2- I reserve the right to not accept a bid if I feel it is too low.
    3- I reserve the right to not accept a bid if I do not wish to sell to the bidder (ie. new accounts with few posts that are trolling or individuals I believe to be nefarious).
    4- ALL bids must be made in the thread (I will not accept bids in private messages, ICQ (which I do not have/use), or even in game).
    5- This is ALL on ATLANTIC. Considering the bid, I may be willing to transfer items to a shard if I have the shard shield for that shard.
    6-
    Bear with me as I will try to update the list as soon as I can when I can.
    7- Bear with me as this is my first attempt selling anything online.
    8- 10 Minute rule applies.

    Thanks to SoBad for letting me use his Auction rules (with a couple changes).
    Thanks to everyone that took the time to read this and to anyone interested enough to bid!

    Items List :

    Item #1 - Cure For The Great Gargish Blight Prepared by Crux Ansata X 4 - Smoot 15m x 1 Jason- 15m x 1
    I had actually found 5 in an IDOC, gave one away, was going to keep 2 myself, and sell 2.
    I have decided to sell the 2 I originally planned to keep for display due to player interest.
    Item #2 - King Blackthorn's Bones (Pink in color) X 1 - ZozmaLS 50m
    Item #3 - Order Crystal (Blue in color) X 2 - Kolka 10m x 1 Flutter 15m x 1 (as of now, this item is sold out)
    Item #4 - Virtue Crystal (Green in color) X 5 - Smoot 5m x 1 Flutter 5m x 1
    Item #5 - Order-Infused Ink X 5 - Kolka 2m x 1
    Item #6 - Virtue-Infused Ink X 2 - Kolka 2m x 1
    Item #7 - Veritae's Music Box Gear X 2 (not pictured) - Finley Grant 10m x 1
    Rares Forum.jpg
    *** Items #3 through #6 (4 items) were from the Stygian Abyss House Give Away Event and could only be gotten during the event. The only ones I've seen belong to a few friends to which I gave them. These blessed quest items can not be banked or placed on a vendor and are normally stuck in your backpack. They can be removed from a players backpack by loading up a pack to 125 items, picking up and holding the blessed item in the cursor, then casting Create Food (using a macro). Once a food item is created, drop the blessed item back into your backpack and it drops to the ground on the exact spot the player is standing. The blessed item may then be locked down and raised/lowered using a deco tool.

    Any winning bidders on items #3, #4, #5, and #6 will be taken to a secure home where only myself and the bidder are accessed for a smooth transaction. Since all of my homes are in Felucca, the only way I can assure only myself and the bidder are accessed is to use one of my own personal homes. If doing a transaction in Felucca is not acceptable(these items are blessed and can not be stolen), I can bring the item to the bidders location however I can not guarantee a 100% smooth transaction in a location that I can not 100% control. Since these items can not be vendored, payment must be made in advance.

    I can understand someone that does not know me being skeptical. All I can do is assure that in almost 18 yrs of playing UO I have never scammed, stolen, or cheated anyone. Character references on Atlantic could easily be supplied. If these items go unsold, I understand and that will be fine. They will stay locked down for display in my homes.

    I'm sorry this is so long but I wanted to be as honest, clear, and concise as possible.
    Again, Thank You All For Your Time & Best of Luck to All in the Auction !

    any chance these could be broken up? im interested, but as i only would want 1 crystal and the other 3 would be very hard to sell off. same goes for the cures, interested, but my bid would reflect having to take the risk and trouble of selling off the other three. just saying you might get higher offers if they sold separately but understand if you prefer the ease of selling off as a lot.

    Sorry, I should of noted that. My intention was to take bids on 1 of each item, not the bulk of all. I completely agree and understand that most folks wouldn't want all of one item.

    TBH I'd prefer to sell them individually that way more than one person could get something they were looking for.
    Yes, absolutely the items could be broken up and I apologize for not posting that at the start.
    Please understand this is my 1st ever attempt at this and I'm learning as I go.

    Just a clarification, when I bid, I don't recall seeing any quanties listed. I'm only bidding on 1 each from #s 3-6, not all 12 of them.

    brianfreud2 I understood your bid for 1 of each item as you originally posted.

    I should of specified bids were for one individual item at the start. I knew I'd forget something, this being my 1st crack at auctioning.

    @ Jason- I would accept a bid of 15m for one cure if that is what you were offering.
    I'm sorry but I could not accept a bid of 15m for two if that was your intent.

    Also, I apologize for not being able to monitor this and post more but we've had bad storms where I live and my internet has been going in/out this weekend.

    I was saying 15 for each because me and Smoot were each saying 15m and each asking for 1. Sorry if that was confusing.

    So the only two cures that were sold went for 15 each? If I'm reading this correctly, then two would still be available, yes?

    For the record, Acid Rain has informed me via PM that he will not be honoring these bids, though they won, because he considers them to be too low. For the record Acid Rain, I don't see much difference between 1m and 2m, and privately asking me to now pay more for items that I've already won I don't consider to be right. If you were going to reject the bids due to them being too low, you should have stated so here before the auction ended, not simply ignored my bids once the auction ended.

    The items quoted in your post were indeed sold to the players at the prices you quoted. The bids rejected were your bids at 1m per item. I'm sorry your bids were so low.

    (That is the exact message I PMed Brianfreud2)

    In the future, if I do sell items again, I will make sure to place reserves. I did not know to do this. If there is relatively no difference between 1m and 2m as you said, I don't see why your upset when I offered you items #5 and #6.

    If I reject bids, apparently I should post that in the thread to be more clear. I assumed that when your name/bid was not updated in red beside the item it would be obvious. I was also having problems getting online this weekend due to bad weather & no connection. Again, I am sorry for the problems that arose on my 1st ever sale of items online and can only apologize and stress that it will not happen again.

    Thankyou Acid Rain for quick and smooth transaction.

    grats on your first auction, i know it can be troublesome to sell things in a method to suit all buying styles. People do like reserves, but its also perfectly fine to simply reserve the right not to sell as you stated in original post. as you know, people do this in traders hall all the time. It may prevent some bidders, but is an acceptable selling method as long as its stated (as you did)

    Very cool items :)

    Because there IS a difference between 1 and 2m. I won at 1m on each of the three. You offer to sell them at 2m and 5m. If I auction something at 2m, I don't go to the winner, reject their bid after the fact, and instead ask for 5 or 10. In any case, it's fine, I'll just wait on these.

    My above post clearly states my contentions on this matter.

    I wish you the best of luck in finding these items at an acceptable price and again apologize for any misunderstandings.

    Many thanks to all those that participated in my 1st Auction and congratulations to the winners. I hope you enjoy your items :)

    I was thinking there were only 2 total available. But If there are some of the Cures left then I want another. Also, What else is left? I may want more than that.

    Ok, So I see the update at the top now. I misunderstood how many total there were. So I will take the last Cure for 15m if I can.

    Two other players asked me about the Cures first and I am awaiting their responses.
    If they do not get back to me or are no longer interested I will be certain to contact you both.
    Thank you both for your interest :)

    After the Auction ended I was contacted via PM concerning Item #1.
    Since this occurred after the Auction and before either Jason- or Cupid inquired,
    I feel it is fair to give those individuals a chance to respond before any sales.

    If I am not contacted or the individuals are no longer interested, I will contact you
    in the order which I received inquiries. I hope this is acceptable.

    Thanks :)
