    It can be obtained by doing the Cloak of Humility quest.

    I dont actually know, i know that Chad Sexington stole one of the Siege EM.

    Also may want to add "Someones Dagger" in that list, blessed dagger. You would be soo amazed how much people have offered for this!

    This is from the Humility quest; you get it about halfway through, I think?

    Dont think so, i believe its one of the books that spawns in bookcases around the lands. The one chad stole on siege was from the EM's pack(great story btw!)

    Yes, the book and Crook of Humility replica are from that quest when you have to donate to the Library and Museum collections.

    In the Quests - Haven section, isn't there also a Silver Serpent Blade? It's a Kryss, from the Ninjitsu quest I believe?

    Would you like to add scams?

    For example, sometimes people name a book "A Cigar Box" and try to sell it as a rare :)

    Oh man, that takes me back! That was the first scam I ever heard of.

    I considered adding named books but the multitude of possibilities would make it virtually impossible to record them all.

    However, I believe I will make a sequel to the Book of False Rares for Scams.

    "A Man's Wallet"

    I doubt it is around anymore but it was always a favorite on the Catskills around 2000-2002, maybe earlier but I started in 2000.

    "a bloody runebook"
    "a bloodied runebook"
    "a blood stained runebook"

    There was always someone running around the WBB trying to sell one of those.

    Suggested add:
    Hammer of Hephaestus

    Haven smithy quest. Some years ago someone was trying to sell one with 40 luck dyed luna white in the bank for 5m i think. Having a mule char name, Hephaestus, I was pretty interested. I asked where it was obtained and the seller stated his brother gave it to him to sell and he didn't know where it was from. I did my research though first and all you had to do was get the hammer from the quest and enhance it and dye it.

    Leprechaun Suit from 1998-1999.

    Although it used to be a rare, all parts of the suit except the boots are now easily reproducible so it is impossible to tell the difference between a real suit from 1998-1999 and one someone created an hour ago.

    The boots are still believed to be rare, they are hue 1109 which cannot be reproduced on boots at this time.

    For more discussion on this topic please see this thread: [Price Check] - Old leprechaun suit from 98-99
