    Vet reward. Or Soulstone/Legacy Token.
    LAST UPDATE 07/23/2012. Well this lil test is totally open to interpetation. All kinds of lil things to speak of. I'll keep my observations limited to the following:

    1.) People, whether already here, just returned, or from another shard and visiting Siege. They are not stupied and do not need to have the high level mothering or guarding that is presently occuring on Siege (IMO). The 750k offer, reguardless of the expected responses, no one was going to sale at 750k, Lady Raja may have thought about it but none the less she waited.

    2.) As pricing goes: Siege doesn't need a committee to price fix things. It wasn't til I offered 2,125,000 m did lady Raja actually come forth. To me that unclaimed vet reward was worth 2,125m. and apparently Lady Raja thought so herslf. She does admit that it was curiosity, but none the less there was a price before she gave it up. BTW side note I have bought 3 additional in game 1st yr vet rewards at that price. All came to me from this thread. So 4 people stepped up at this price for in game rewards. Go by what the item is worth to you. If it dosen't sale, then consider dropping price. Ya all know how this works.

    3) Siege's old rule of a 100k per year on vet reward is sadly outdated. While it might be ok for such things as ethy mounts, it is not a suffienct amount for a Commodity deed box. The thing that throws this all out of whack is the pricing of soulstones. Since first year soulstone is equated to the in game value of store bought one, very few are going to claim any of those vet rewards inbetween a 1st yr. Soulstone and a 12 th yr. House Teleport set. So the ones on the shard will go up in price as more people come to the shard. Until the price equals out. The only Soulstone offers I got were 500 gps and a hater 7m. CURRENT price of a Soulstone token unknown. Not talking about rumor now, I mean someone actually selling one.

    4.) My 1st vet pick went on my vendor at 2.5m, it didnt last a day. So somone out there valued it to be worth buying. I will push even higher. There is an unpicked vet reward comming , to be given out. Which sadly I will not mark up, this is a gift that will be passed on from unforgivenUO.

    Supply and Demand: thanks Lady Raja. Revvo still looking for ya PM me.

    UPDATED: 07/22/2012: There are very cool people in the world, unforgivenUO is one of those.

    • UPDATED 07/22/2012: Ok this lil test has now concluded. Only taker I got for a Soulstone token was from Rumpy in another post. Lowest offer for a Full soulstone is 7 mil. This means Siege will get NO new vet rewards anytime soon. Vet rewards are just passed around from IDOC to IDOC. So as more and more people enter Siege there will be less and less of certain vet rewards which willl drive prices higher and higher.
    UPDATED 07/22/2012:I know I know you tire of this thread. I just want one more maybe two, brand new unpicked vet rewards on Siege.

    BASE OFFER: 2,125,000 > I would like to buy an unpicked vet reward my choice. EXCLUDING soulstone and house teleport set. How far up the year option do you have and what will it cost to give it up?
    ORRRRRR I would be intersted in a Soulstone or Legacy token.
    If my offer to to low please counter. While I am very willing to deal I do know when to walk away.

    07/21/2012: Woot woot for Supply and Demand >>>the Commodity deed box has been sold from my vendor at 2.5m. Now I know there are many out there thinking ya sure it did! But to all those that do know me, you know I say what I think. There are in game toons I disagree with. Yep, I even charge high prices on items, and that will not change that. All true, what I am not known for in being dishonest, why because I do not lie.

    Short of the customer logging into these boards and claiming to be the one, I can not prove this. So for now let's see what else unfolds.

    Ok I met up with Lady Raja and a brand new vet reward is on Siege. My 1st year pick. Commodity deed box and it is on my vendor at I4NI vendor house. Vendor name SUPPLY n DEMAND , that vet reward is priced at 2.5 m.

    UPDATED -7/21/2012: No this is not a SCAM. If this is stopping you from excepting my offer perhaps there is a trusted mutual friend who would broker for us? Nor is this is not about how many ways there are to make gold on Siege.

    No suprize here >>> no takers on the 750k!

    SUPRIZE >>> I have a taker at 2,125m to Lady Raja!

    Truth be told at first look I was a lil suprized to get a taker at this price. I was sure it was going to cost me the going rate of a soulstone (3.5m) to get someone to collect a vet reward on Siege. However rumor has it that crystal portals (1st yr.) in game are going for 1.5 to 2 m. So maybe my offer is a wee bit higher but in the ball park. My guideline when pricing my vet reward pick will be 1.5m low end, 2m average, 2.5m high end. I'll take the high end of coarse.

    So with a base offer of 2,125, 000 m (Siege gold only). What will it cost me for you to log onto Siege and give up a brand new vet reward? What year do you have? My pick up to 12th yr. EXCLUDING soulstone and house teleport set

    You can not know what I pick until we meet up in game. So please don't ask what vet reward. Thinking I better add that I will snoop your bag at transaction to be sure that you TRULY collect a vet reward.

    Please post here only. We can PM each other later about specifics.

    BEWARE, I will be placing that vet reward on my vendor at a higher cost!

    I'll respond to this post tomorrow about this same time

    Supply and Demand: let's test that theory!

    Considering a Crystal Portal is worth 1.5M-2M and is a 1st year vet reward.. I don't think anyone is gonna go for it as that is probably one of the easiest things to sell right now.

    I fail to see how this tests the theory of supply and demand...

    I also fail to see how this is fair to players you are buying from when you can pick whatever you want, and sell some of the options easily for at least twice what you paid for them.

    I too don't like it, and I advice new players here to keep their reward choices as they may need them for soulstones if they choose to stay here.
    Go to Coveteus and pick up some gems to sell, pick up regs near Vesper, get wool for every sheap in Yew to make bolt of clothes to sell, kill creatures for skill gain and their leather. Even a newbie can make money here without selling their vet rewards.

    When I came back, I did the solen quest and farmed the powder. I made over a mil within a few days. I know Rizu was doing it too and also farming leather.

    Plenty of easy ways to make gold. We started with nothing and have all we need now.

    So I am quite curious to see where this is going... Hey Baby Doll, I will let you pick one of the 1st year Vet Rewards of your choosing for 2,125,000 million! PM me and we can work out a time we are both on to make this little deal happen! ;)

    :mylittlepony:Thanks!

    P.S.
    I do have a spare Crystal Portal that I am not using... If anyone is interested, I will sell for 2 million. :p

    Anyone specifically requiring someone to choose a new vet reward, rather than willing to purchase a vet reward that someone might already have, is setting people up.

    "Pick the Skeleton Statue! Sorry, I decided I don't want it!"

    That's my take on this. Seller beware.

    Just met up with Baby Doll and... We talked about outfits and drank some tea. We swapped stupid boy stories, but I talked about the stupid Pixies more. After doing some routine chitter chatter, we made our deal and I was off...

    Girl time has sure gotten shorter these days huh? I guess it is back to the Collector's quest I go... :(

    P.S I did edit my response in this post. Trying not to influence this lil test.

    As I believe this to be a good deal, no I will not pass it up! I have not harrassed anyone for this deal. He knows that I most likly will resale it. Will I take up more offers, I dunno.

    Fact is I already got a brand new 1st yr.vet reward, which is what I was asking for. Supply and Demand on a 1st. yr. vet reward has already been met. I am still after another unpicked vet reward up to 12 years. I have a base offer for unpicked rewards still open.

    Oh my a twist! Another suprize. Only 1st. year choice? Must it be a Legacy token or will a Soulstone token do? If we even make deal I will only be interested in one.

    One account would be up to 7th year, another has just turned 96 months (8th year) yesterday but isn't getting the reward gump yet but should do soon. No wouldn't have to be a legacy token just a full soulstone.

    Sweet so if I had a token I could claim at least up to a 8 yr for the cost of a Soulstone/Legacy. I do not have any atm, but lets see what it takes to get one.
    ANYONE SELLING A FULL SOULSTONE TOKEN OR LEGACY TOKEN IF SO HOW MUCH!

    Sorry Revvo, the cost of Soulstone at 7 m. (offered by Rumpy) is somthing I will pass on.. Funny though Rumpy is the one whining all over the shard about high cost.

    I have 2 unpicked rewards and since this character is a 6 year vet i will sell at 1 mil per year equaling 6 mil per pick. 12 mil for both picks. Is that fair? I have no clue.

    I almost did it for 750k... :( Not because I need the gold, well, I could always use more gold to buy things... But that is beside the point! I was very curious to see what the outcome would be. For the price of a Vet Reward? Sure why not! The only thing I have ever claimed for my Vet Rewards are Red Soulstones, because they just look better then the blue and green ones...

    :mylittlepony:Thanks!

    P.S.
    Sorry to chime in on you two...

    Well, I'm glad you didn't for that cheap. The only thing to come out of it was someone bought something at X Price. I really don't get what the whole point was considering everyone has millions of gold, but nothing to spend it on. So people will occasionally pay high price for something that doesn't come on the market often. What else is the point of having gold?

    An your not butting in at all. The only PvP on Siege is gonna be on the forums, just like the old days since no one ever leaves their house.

    If your a new player and you come to Siege and look to make gold with an unchosen vet reward, an someone offers you 750k for it.. Then you find out that the item you could have chosen goes for 2 mil+, would you not think you got duped?

    since it was all done on the forums and there's no shortage of people to tell any newcomer that the price is unfair, there's in no deception and therefore no scam?

    Look folks. I am by default, a "friend" of many of you. Some of you... not so much, but that is another story. *winks*

    I have had many opportunities to trade and deal with most of the folks in this thread. It pains me that it has become such an ugly thing.
