    Auction House Rules:
    - Bids must be in a minimum of 10k increments
    - No hiding/fighting/pk'ing/stealthing/stealing within the auction house
    - Winning book mentioning item will be placed on Cashier, upon purchase the winner will be made a friend of the house and accessible to the item in a chest for "Friends Only" and will then be unfriended.
    - All bids must be said (typed) in the normal game window. Attendees will be asked to keep normal game chatter to a minimum or use a chat channel as the auctioneer will utilize the journal as the source of bids (and in dispute of a tie bid, the order received).

    This sounds like a great idea! I hope you have some more items up for grabs. The time is a bit early for an auction, but I will try and make it.

    To avoid hiding/stealthing, have someone who is friend/co-own of the house use detect hidden once in a while. It will 100% reveal anyone.

    A good idea for the winning player, have them purchase the book for the item off the vendor, then have them use a "Friends Only" teleporter to a room with the chest. Then have an auction member gate them to a random bank location so that nothing is stolen and no one is followed to a bank.

    :)

    Thanks for the suggestions Rumpy - I will definitely use that winning player idea as it sounds very safe. Yes, the time is a bit early (even for me), but was not sure when is best with all the different timezones and europe.

    I got the idea from other shards with similar events - so I cannot take credit. Regardless, hope it will be fun for all and we get a good turnout.

    Thanks again for the input,
    Holden

    As I once in the past had a interest in the sorcerers suit, the question will arise if it 255 or 100 durability. Same with the fishermans.

    Good luck on your auction.

    Good question, these are from the latest/current clean-up points, 100 durability on the sorcerer suit and 125 on fisherman's both unused.

    P.S. Your vendors are missed Guardian KX, I don't think there will be better found for quite some time, if ever.

    wow number 4 is certainly an odd item. 50k for something that is not suppose to exist! thats a steal, you might want to look at what you have. Because the inquise were not a cursed arti you could obtain.
    what if you want an item and are unable to attend. Can Bo tell you what the maximum Bo would pay for the items? and if noone bids higher than the Bo you hold it and sell to the bo later?

    and how much commission are you chargin? Bo has lots of items Bo might want to add

    Haha, thanks for the correction on the Inquis. No commission charged, all is meant to be in fun.

    To answer your question about bidding before auction or specifying a maximum, I pondered that and decided to strictly keep the bidding at the auction only. The best I could recommend is having someone you trust there to bid on your behalf (they would still need to purchase at the time of the auction). Hope to see you there!

    Holden, the starting bid for the Inquis Resolution gloves should start at 3 to 5 million. Any less than that and your ripping yourself off. They drop once a month, require 5 people to get, and the 5th (center guy) must be a thief.

    The demand of them is low though. Some of the new loot puts these gloves to shame. Especially when people have the blessed spellbooks with DCI, LMC, SDI, LRC, and FCR 2... Why waste your blessed on them when you can run a full LRC Suit and bless a homemade ring/brac.
