    It seems that @Adeka is going to get this candle no matter what with so many friends willing to buy it for her lol.

    Same old same old when it comes to the more desirable items in this game.

    The 'useable suspects' get the nicer items while we Plebeians get nothing but crumbs. Unless you are part of '5%'ers' you don't even try because you know you will either end up paying obscenely too much for the item or alternatively you will get bid out in the race (like it appears in this case).

    So it easier to just not play at all. Unfortunately this may impact on the final price for Kiss Of Death because any real likelihood of a bidding war may be curtailed because people will see the futility of participation.

    I was interested in the item - and may have bid a reasoanble price - but taking the above into an account I will acquiesce to the above mentioned 5%'ers.

    I don't mean this to sound offensive, so I apologize if it does, but...this is called the rares community. We buy and sell rares. Rare means not common and hard to get. Hard to get makes something expensive. Therefore, obviously whoever has the most gold will always have the most rares. That has nothing to do with the actual people you called the 5%'ers, it's just common sense that whoever has the most gold wins in auctions. This is UO, what do people do when they have everything they need to play the game and have gold left over? They buy rares because it's the only thing left to buy.

    I don't really see a problem with the more "business savvy" people having the most gold, and winning the majority of auctions.

    Btw, I'm sure I fall into your category of 5%'ers since I have a rares museum, but I assure you, I am not gold obsessed, greedy, or even business savvy really. My gold and items come from playing the game as a normal player for a long time, nothing else. Until about 3 years ago I didn't have much interest in rares, and didn't really want to buy rares anyway at the time. I began to enjoy rares, now I have a museum. If a person decides they want a rare but don't have the gold for it, I would suggest they do what I did by either investing more time in the game, or choosing to use the game time they do have to do things in the game that lead to more gold, like going to EM events.

    It's a very simple process in my opinion.

    Person wanting rares + person spending more time in game making gold = person getting rares

    If the person doesn't want to, or can't spend more time in UO making gold for whatever reason, they will just have to save the gold they do make for whatever rares they wish to spend it on.

    Hello Capt my Capt

    I am not offended and certainly understand what you have said and agree to a point - I think it was more geared at the frustration that it is not just adeka we competing against, but rather the whole gang.

    If it was just adeka I could understand - but it is not.

    If it was just adeka, there is no telling how far she would be willing to go if left to her own financial constraints, or whether she was even interested in the item in the first place?

    Does she even want the item?

    Pretty much the only rares she collects are these kind of candles and she has a very large museum of them. She definetely wants the item hehe, and every other candle of love in existance :p

    I understand what you mean, it is pretty hard to win anything when some people have a miniature army supporting them, but that's just how rares trading works these days honestly. When people who don't usually pay alot for items, are paying alot for something, 90% of the time it's because someone gave them a loan to help them get an item they really like.

    Yeah, there is no 5%er thoughts or intentions behind this. I'm expecting a bidding war on this item like any other item in game... Just like the others who have made a bid or thought to bid on an item for someone else. There are certain people who have something very unique. @Adeka is one of them with a museum of candles that she's invested tons of time and energy into since it's inception in UO. Bidding against me or anyone else for that matter is not to shun her or think less of her... If you want the item, feel free to bid. I am not here to control or govern an items sale price, but most people who would buy this item in this community will know of/about Adeka and here CBBL collection. AND - if you ever had to opportunity to get to know her like some of us have, you would know she is one of the nicest, selfless people in the community.

    I hear your frustration. I also see a much more valued friendship over a few gold pieces and so do many others. No negative intentions whatsoever. I hope this can clear the air a smidgen so we can get back to bidding on this very nice CBBL.

    25m - offer for "A Friends" collection

    If I bid against someone who has more liquid gold than me, I still bid. Even if I know they can afford to go higher, I still take it to my highest offer because that is what it means to me and if they want it badly they are going to have to pay for my love of it too. :)

    the reason i would buy this for said player is because she reunited me with my candle :) and Scott got his back by the same generous person.

    while gold checks still exsist..and dupers keep duping them by the bucket full.......well...well folks will keep buying it at 10/15 cents a pop....

    bragging rights on something for 100m to the person that WINS?... 10 lousy dollars.....[whatever]

    really wish the devs would nail/ concentrate on ending the dupe check system...it will be good for the game...will take a while as there will be vendor houses sat on every shard with billions of duped gold on them

    Wow! I am honored at the support from the community in regards to this candle. I appreciate it very much! :) I cannot afford that kind of gold toward this item at this time, my hiatus has kept my bank rather dusty. ;)

    This is truly a center piece kind of rare and I will be eternally jealous of it's final owner!
