    It's not visible in the bag and no draw tiles have never been worth so little.
    your pumice estimate seems about right.
    thats not the "bronze robe" its an original prepatch "a bronze robe"
    the old white checks are usually worth millions as far as folks seem to say in game.
    it's a green newbified champagne glass. not a champagne flute or anything.
    this is pure mare cloth, not the darkness aos cloth from slimes, not the cloth created with a bug that made lightmare cloth. I know some folks have low monitor settings but all 3 of those colors don't stack with each other. Mare cloth, last sold for 500k a yard when I checked last time.
    The old hair dyes I've sold over the last yard, not a single one has sold for under a mill. I've not sold any for over 3mill but your price seems lower than the price checks people have been pming me...


    Can anyone else give me an estimate?

    If you ask for prices, don't come back and tell them the prices they quoted are too low or not what everyone else is telling you, ESPECIALLY when your second post in the thread is whining about the fact that "over 60 views and nobody can price anything there?" This is exactly why people don't offer up quotes most of the time. Better to just bite your tongue, stop your hands from typing and wait for someone else to get dogged out over what they feel is a decent price quote.

    The player who responded, admittedly didn't have a clue. His prices reflected possible low end prices from a number of years ago, my information was at most a year out of date.

    Frankly, your post offers nothing but you acting as an eitiquette nazi and fails to note the gap in time between my first posts and his response.

    Back to the price checks...

    Practice longsword: 25-50k
    Practice skinning knife: 200-250k

    I've seen a lot of the practice weapons on vendors on Pacific and many of them are in the 25-35k range depending on weapon. The most common out there seem to be the longsword, bow, and mace. The skinning knife is the second LEAST common if memory serves me correctly - I've seen 2 for sale in the past 8 months (one at 200k and the other at 250k).

    Hope that helps

    Black Bag containing a no draw tile - ZERO/NADDA Not worth one gold coin
    A magical lockbox - anywhere from 4mil to 25mil...depends on how stupid the buyer is
    pumice - about 5mil to the right buyer
    a bronze robe - I was offered 2mil for my gold one, so, about the same
    old white checks - depends on the buyer and the amounts. best guestimate would be 10-100 times the value of the check.
    True Mare cloth(items and by the yard) -
    green "a champagne glass" - unique item if you can display it (which I don't think you can) it would be worth 3mil, if it can't be displayed then ~ 1mil
    large amythyst gems - new event gems, wait until the event is over. price is dropping daily on these
    large citrine gem - see above
    pink muffins - seen them as low as 10k
    a guild deed - 50k if not named, more if the right name is on it
    named vendor deeds(90 stones) - 1mil to 1.5mil
    Prepatch daemon bone armor suit - depending on the color of the suit and if it says "Daemon Bone" could be as high as 3mil for full suit
    dark furs - 750k
    blessed zog green robe - depends on if it's Blessed or [Blessed]
    fountain deeds - 75-100k
    "a plate of exceptional quality" - I don't do the dishes
    "a goblet of exceptional quality" - Still don't do the dishes
    full set of 1000 diamond jewelry (and misc pieces) - depends on if someone is getting married in the near future...1.5mil if not needed, in a hurry, double it.
    Practice long swords - still seeing practice weapons on vendors for ~ 50k
    practice skinning knife(very uncommon as i recall) - not so uncommon as one would think, but still worth more than a common so 100k
    katana with the name "of exceptional quality" - not worth anything in my book
    "a gnarled staff of exceptional quality" - see above
    old bottle of hair dye thats dark gray - purchased a red and yellow recently for 600k total, so around 250-350k
    sigil purple lantern, torch, spellbooks,sandals, and fishing rod - lanterns go for around 750k each

    RedRum I don't think you have a clue about the prices you're spitting out. :-\

    Quite a few of them are pretty close, actually. But, those are more prices a buyer would like to see, vs. a seller. Still, if one wants to sell these things rapidly, it looks like a reasonable approach.

    Except perhaps the white checks, as a 1mil white check will never go for 10-100mil. 5mil maybe. But, the smaller denominations, close enough.

    Not to nitpick, of course, the exceptional items do hold value to some people. A lot of collectors would agree with rum though. Some not. The world is still turning. :)

    What's wrong with mine? I've been pricing this stuff for ten years (no exaggeration at all - on some olds boards (pre-stratics, heh) I was the man). Some of my prices may be a bit high, if anything, but at these levels, nothing to worry about. Someone will buy it. :)

    Pete is right, except for the white check (1-2m) and sigil lantern (slightly lower) and pumice (depends on colour), but still lower.

    The problem you have is that with the exception of the Magical Lockbox everything you have in your list is on the lower end of the scale and with that you are going to have dramatic price swings by Shard and vendor. No one is going to give you the answer you want because you want it all to be worth mega-millions. The best thing for you to do is take in what has been given to you and determine your prices. Just remember it is always easier to drop the price while it is in your hands then raise it while itis in someone elses.

    I simply responded with that post because a few folks have sent me PMs stating that the quotes came from unsavory folks but fail to provide their own quotes. I'm not asking for insane amounts or even to sell everything there. I would however like to have an idea of some of the things i have boxxed in my house whose values I'm not up to date on. I don't want to simply jump down someones throat telling a person that a few people have told me specifically to disregard them when I have little information on any of you folks, in the past I would simply have ICQ'd hemisphere and never come here due to the stigma this forum has.
