    Do they do anything or are they just to be locked down and looked at?

    They make a sound when you click them. Blue one roars like a dragon, Red one is some kind of weird laughter.

    Which, in my opinion, is silly.

    I was at the event last night on Pacific on a noob character and got 3.

    People who have gotten multiples should be giving them away to those who didn't get any :/

    I did the same on Baja. Maybe your problem is you are on the wrong shard.

    As far as I know, they are just deco with cool sounds. I have been amused at the prices. I gave one away to a friend, and traded a second one away for an exceptional bookshelf and sleeping hamster container. I even posted on statics that I had extras I would trade for random items, and I posted in a separate discussion that I valued these between 500k and 1 mil, mostly due to the em event rarity and how they will be unavailable over time. Guess how many people made offers? Zero. But in the same forum I've seen them sell for several million gold, and IIRC there have been more than a few people buying them in 10s of millions range. I assume these folks didn't know the amount dropping. I'm refereeing specifically to the ruby here,as the sapphire was closer to a true em rare in its drop rate (though still more common than the 1 in 10s, 15s, etc).

    The only shard that these were somewhat difficult to get IMO was siege. On Legends I got seven with little effort, on Siege I tried two different templates and only got one on each temp. I assume the handful of folks who provided tanking dragons managed several on Siege as well, but I haven't confirmed it.

    The UO economy is an interesting thing.

    From my experience on Atlantic I wish you luck on that but I would hold my breath waiting for it to happen.
