    Usually you see pieces/parts leftover from someone burning kits go up for a grab bag sale, but other than that I would make a safe bet that yes, it is being hoarded/used.

    Not everyone has their own crafter, so the old adage "save it for a rainy day" holds true, in this case.

    Threatening to quit because you can't find runic leather armour ? * shakes head* Oh honestly. Guess I shouldn't really be surprised seeing as my reintroduction to UO earlier this year was logging into Siege and seeing you in Luna crying, shouting and swearing your head off about being killed and losing all your stuff and begging people to help you out.

    I don't know where you are shopping but I see runic leather armour for sale pretty frequently, both on player vendors and here on the forums. Decent stuff as well as kit runthroughs. It's a case of checking back often.

    Do what I do kill someone wearing runic armor. Like how we killed you last night :)
    Seriously stop crying, find a crafter and buy a runic kit from them.

    It's very rare to see runic crafter armour sets for sale. Sometimes people sell bits and pieces that they get as loot of off others. This is why I think runic crafter armour sets would be a very lucrative business for a crafter.

    Bruin, the problem with that is pricing. How do you price it? Do you try to put a value on each piece based on mods? Do you put charge the same price for all pieces regardless of mods? Do you sell individual pieces? full suits? grab bags?

    I actually had a ton of runic armor (I don't know where I put it). I don't know the best way to sell it on a vendor.

    Also the trouble is with runic sets is that everyone has different requirements from a suit ( apart from straightforward lrc stuff ) inc. mixing in with arties/enhanced loot items, so its better to sell by the individual piece,

    You are correct, it has been difficult and so far what I have seen has been a crapshoot. I'd go for it along these lines.

    You figure horned runic kits sell for 350k and you get 30 uses out of them, so thats about 12k a use. Then you've got to figure your market, and I'd say there's two different types:

    Non-factioners:
    These people require full suits of around all 70's resists, with a few extra bonus mods, usually MR and/or LmC. So if you can put together an all 70's suit with say 4-5 MR or 20 LMC or a mix you should easily be able to sell them for 100k - a fair price since your cost would be about 75k.

    Generally I'm poor so I used spined runic kits to achieve 65ish resists with MR 3-4 but need to burn through a whole runic to get maybe 2 usable suits, you can still sell this to me for 25k and be ahead of the game and have some nice LRC pieces which brings me to my next group.

    100 LRC spined runic created armour using the armour only with say barbed leather can easily be made with 6 pieces, have some decent resist and probably also sell for 70k+ since just a normal LRC suit sells for 50k with terrible resists.

    Factioners:
    You figure most factioners are using the helmet, chest, legs and gloves from faction arties, leaving the gorget and arms needed. Here these guys are looking usually for 2 things, LMC and MR. Get the high resist pieces with MR 2, LMC 7+ or a combo and you can sell these pieces for 30K+ at least, get both from a barbed runic and you can sell it for at least 100k.

    That's how I'd go about doing it. I'm just too lazy.

    Majere what u need to do is get 120 resist and get a killa weapon with ninja, stealth and tracking and run around attacking everything in site so you always have the advantage cuz you got nothing to lose! Then take all the nice stuff you get off of fools who run around in 300k suits and give them to your prize char i.e. Tolliver Quick or something of the likes. Works for me :)

    The reason I love this post is that this guy has been on this shard long enough to have maybe just left NEW and he gets it already.
