On a lot of shards there is a vendor somewhere in Luna named "BKIT 2.X", with '2.X' being a different number specifying the cost of the item. This cost varies on each server. Well, on Great Lakes, there is a vendor named BKIT 2.0 at Genesis' West Luna house. This vendor is right on the steps underneath the house sign. I noticed the vendor is selling multiple Barbed Runic kits at 2,000,000gp each, and each kit is stacked on top of another in the top left of the vendor's pack. Also, this vendor constantly has a stock of about 10 barbed kits. Suspicious, I paged a GM and asked if a GM could do some sort of a check on the kits to make sure they are legal before I purchased any, and that with the recent bannings I wasn't taking any chances at all. I received a GM response that read: "The item(s) you are inquiring about are not support by Game Masters at this time. These items however are subject to change, and are not officially deemed legal by the development team. The development team may at anytime remove or alter the item(s) or any item(s) in game without prior warning to the community if deemed necessary. Please know that ownership of the item(s) is at your own risk. Thank you for your support and cooperation." This sounds to me like the GM noticed they were illegally created and was basically telling me not to buy them in an indirect way. If I'd reported a completely legal Barbed Kit then I don't think I'd get this type of response. Has anyone had experience with this in the past? I'm seriously afraid to buy anything now in Luna that comes from a BOD.
