    the fact that its limited to 400 stones means just another box wiht a bugged name. You might get some bites though. There are collectors that collect those type of things.

    well...so are strong boxes if you think that far back. I really can't see a GM going after anyone for a ballot box thou.
     
  5. Its kinda funny though he thinks he has a true rare on his hands. I offered him a few mil and he keeps tellin me he thinks its worth more. I never ruled out the possibility it was illegal though, but I doubt it could cause much harm.

    I just figured it was a bugged ballot box or w/e

    Looks more to me like one of the boxes you access while doing a character transfer. I imagine the box was golden like a ballot or strongbox?

    You are correct Sheridan. I saw it and he claims that he secured it in his house and placed 127 items in it. So it could be cool that you only needed one box to store all of your items, but really would you want to do that? I tried to tell the guy to take whatever Kratos was offering cause I thought it was more than fair, but alas he thought it worth more. My biggest fear would be someone sees it does not like that youhave it and pages a GM, not that it would be dl;eted, but that it would be fixed.

    Hye Shinobi Im the guy that had the box. If i can recall you never offered me anything (as far as an amount) you just said youde give me something "realistic" for it. So anytime someone says "realistic" i should assume a few mil. Not to mention its is a true rare, because obviously no one else has one. I look at it like this- although it may not be as "useful" as some of these doom arties that go for 20mil, it is about 100 times more rare then, say, a Crimson Cinture or AoF. Also for mdacc#one, being a "rares expert" you should know that when you lock down a container in your house it looses the 0/400 weight limit and becomes unlimited. And Teufel Hund I dont make "claims" if you want to see me secure it in my house and put 300 items in it ill show ya [​IMG]

    Dude you need to relax, I only said claim because I did not see it with my own two eyes. Also there is no way you can say with any certainty that it is one of a kind, impossible so just don't even try. Even if it is one of a kind, and even if a GM saw it and did not fix it, but we all know that if a GM sees it it will be fixed or deleted, what is its value? You can't wear it, so it is not eye candy. You really can't display it because someone will page a GM and it will be fixed or deleted. so the only thing left is storage....you really gonna put your entire houses contents into one chest? mentioning it in the same breath as a Crimson or an AOF just won't work and there are no Doom Arites that go for 20 million anymore in case you did not notice. It is more an oddity than a rare, get what ya can while ya can.

    This isnt from transfering it would be a glitched title from a moving crate in a house, as any xshard is capped at 900 items.

    In addition true rare or not, the rarity of an item is not 100% conclusive for determining a price, desirability and use of the item play major factors to that end, as does graphic.

    In addition your claim of it being a true rare and the only one are hypothetical at best as you have no evidence to support your belief. If you managed to come into posession of this item it is highly likely that other players have or will in the near future.

    As to the worth of the item, since there is always a risk of deletion with items such as these, it shares a very common graphic, its only useful for storage, the name is only evident when moused over, & there's a high probability that there will be more in the near future I wouldn't value it at more than 5-20m currently with the potential for the value to increase or decrease based the many confounding factors listed previously.

    I was going to say, pretty much the nicest reason (for me anyways) to have a container like this is to get rid of the 20+ containers in each house and have everything accessible from one box. Also the scariest thing to happen would be for this item to poof while using it to store every single item you own. Either GM deleted poof or "hey I'm not supposed to exist" type poof.

    So that leaves displaying it while empty, which would leave it open to player and therefore GM scrutiny. Sadly useless to me because of these issues - it is a neat item but I would want to know more about it's origins and legality before I would consider purchasing it (or any others out there like it).

    Dont see how this is really rare besides the name, I mean I have Regular crates/chest/boxes that have NO limit to items nor weight

    Rofl, No sir, that IS NOT a true rare, its nothing more than an exploited Glitched item, and in no way what so ever are glitched items considered true rares. and no one else has one because you got it thru an exploit and most ppl dont like using exploits :p

    Also for mdacc#one, being a "rares expert" you should know that when you lock down a container in your house it looses the 0/400 weight limit and becomes unlimited.

    Again, Rofl, Manti IS a Rares Expert and when a container is "Locked Down" as you said isnt Doesnt loose its weight limit, it only looses that limit when its Secure, and he wasnt refering to that any ways he was simply saying the container its self has a weight limit.

    that item is 100% ILLEGAL anything that will exceed the item limit would be considered illegal, much like the gold checks for over a mil, those exceeded the default limit and were deld my GM's.

    what the seller should have done instead of trying to say he has a "True Rare" is post a pic of him asking a GM if the item in his pack is legal then posting a pic of it.
