    what do you all think, for the stag items, i put a designation behind it:

    (R) = Rare - exists 25+
    (VR) = Very Rare - exists 11-25
    (UR) = Ultra Rare - exists 1-10

    I have a good number of them estimated but may need some of your help on the rest.

    This way with literally hundreds of them out there people will know roughly what to pay for on any item.

    i suggest some extra identifiers such as Uncommon and common - Like the colored ginger bread cookies or the angel food cake those are pretty common id say 100+ are out there which in my mind would not meet the R 25 +. But i do like the system Alot. the only down fall i see with a trading system is how easy it would be for someone to stick to it too strictly. and presume one value is worth another taking only into consideration of the amount droped and not the desirability. Such as Special Wine bottles Vs Naughty Shirts. each collector would put a different value on each, even if there is the same amount dropped.

    But like i said i like the system alot and i think it would really aid in trading in more ways than just stag.

    Naughty switches were dropped on most shards. So, in theory, they should be one of the most common stag drop.

    Just a short reminder: The way the stag drops were made, any attempts to gauge rarity of items is going to be very error prone.

    Hi there Manticore,

    good idea.
    Now we only need to collect data of all the items so we can but the correct label on them.I guess that will take awhile.

    perhaps the EM's would be kind enough to tell how many of each dropped
