    Would be best on DF;)

  2. FYI on the phoenix. Tons of it is in circulation because of the asian shard events. All pieces old and new are indistinguishable from one another except the helm. If you have a Helm titled "Nose Helm" its from the asian event and is in large quantities. If you have a "Norse Helm" then it is the original helm from the pick up britannia theme and few are in circulation.

    This statement is absurdly exagerated and false. There is by no means "tons" of phoenix in circulation. The amount that may have come from Asian shards is minimal. And the price of Phoenix in general, regardless of being the old, or new from Asian pieces, has increased insanely in value over the past year or two, regardless of Asian drop.

    I sold a suit within the past 12 months for 180mil. I see many pieces sell for 20 now, more depending on the piece/desirability/rarity.

    Don't let the chicken littles of this forum ruin a rare for you. Phoenix is still extremely rare. Is still one of the most coveted rare items in the history of the game as far as wearables go. And is deffinatly still worth getting if you are a collector.

    from uo stratics item data base...

    Phoenix Armor A random piece of red ring armor. As these pieces are random, it is possible to be awarded a duplicate prize. (100,000 tickets) note: this armor actually appears orange,
    * weight is same as regular ring armor and nose helm .

    ROFL. You obviously haven't been playing very long. "Norse Helm" is what was given during the clean-up seeing as I got several pieces myself.
    Nose helm comes from the asian shards and nearly every helm you see will be titled "nose".

    there's always debate about this. I used to own phoenix armor back when it was introduced and i'm fairly sure it was Norse.

    That's because it was Norse. These new school rare collectors don't know any better because they didn't play during the ticket system when they were given out.

    If you all must argue, then do so in a civil manner.

    This is getting a little too close to a urination competition, and those aren't welcomed here.
     
  16. I had a suit before the Asian debacle and I just checked it...Nose.
     
  17. There's only 3 sets on Legends that I know about and I know for a fact at least mine was pre-Asian shard event. I just checked them all and they are all Nose Helms. The asian shard did not give "tons" of Phoenix. It was actually only dozen suits max. I find it hard to believe 3 of those would be on Legends... Either way, I can back up with proof that my suit pre-dates the Asian Event and it is Nose.

    It was always supposed to be "Norse" helm, but back in the day, it was misspelled! So when the phoenix armor came out, it read "Nose" Helm. Of course this was eventually fixed so the new helms of the type would read "Norse" (Wasnt fixed in a timely manner either!). But the Asian event, since it was after the change, would say "Norse".

    Thus!

    Old Phoenix= Nose
    New Phoenix= Norse

    Pheonix armour... I remember about 5 years ago i had a mate called Kalland who was rares mad, he used to go on about getting a hold of this coveted pheonix armour and i think he got the full set before i eventually left the game.

    Since coming back i've always kept my eyes open for someone wearing pheonix at the bank, but never seen it at all...

    Now i'm just dying to see a picture of it, and maybe try and see if i can get myself a lilttle pair of pheonix leggings if my bank account can stretch that far [​IMG]

    Anyone got a picture for me??? [​IMG]

    yes nose helm is the original, i have a full suit with the nose helm, and also have a spare nose helm, i also have a nose helm of exceptional quality which is probably considerably old as well, and when it comes to Daemon and Demon it wasnt a misspelling, Demon used to be the super slayer and Daemon was only good for killing daemons, then they just did away with Daemon turning all of those into Demon Slayers so they are all super slayers now
