[Discussion] Just a thought.(Service UO could offer)

    Firstly, I'm posting this here as I have a feeling the rares community would be the first to jump on such a offer. I was just in another thread and when someone mentioned having their collection being shard specific I got to thinking. Just how often does a player have to pay for a transfer token in order to bring just one or only a few items back to their home shard? Or maybe those players who already have seven chars on a shard and need to transfer an item(s) over?

    Basically, wouldn't it make sense for UO to offer an item only transfer? I know I've heard a lot of people mention they'd like to bring an item over to whatever shard but don't want to spend the money on a transfer. I think it could be a profitable idea, say a dollar or two for a single item? (I haven't really thought about how it could work, I suppose just place item in special bag, use transfer, and pick up using help gump on chosen shard.)

    What do you folks think? Good idea or not? Or maybe I just stumbled on an original idea that a hundred other folks have already asked for here and I just didn't notice?

    I'm that "shard specific" collector and YES I've spent an embarassing amount on transfering relatively small numbers of items back to Catskills, but I think that most collectors have resigned to the fact that it's "part of the business" of Rares Collecting.

    The idea is great but it won't work. We all know the truth.

    I feel so left out. I have no clue what that "one" thing is... Woe is me...
