    I'd like to add these to my Europa museum, can we work out a good price, given that I will preserve our shards history and make sure they are not Xsharded?

    Say, 15M for all?

    I enjoyed looking at your museum very much...

    My favorite part--was the Solisice Stag collection. You have the most meticulous 2010 Solstice collection I have ever seen!. I have come across various pieces everywhere, and I even own some pieces myself, but I had no idea what items came together and from what shards. Very impressive. It would be a shame if that is not kept together in a museum.

    Well... damn. I'd JUST moved in next door last night; I was hoping that the traffic to THPs rare museum would help generate interest in doing something similar but with the written lore of the game (books from IDOCs etc) in the castle to the south. I'd spent last night having a look around for decoration ideas, and I have to say, it will be a colossal shame to see this collection broken up and moved around, so add me to the voices hoping the new owner can stay on Europa.

    While I could point out the irony of this all...I will say this

    Selling everything together will NOT get you the maximum value out of your house/items, it never has and never will. The only way to get maximum value, and to prevent yourself from feeling "shortchanged" is to split and sell everything.

    So, THP...
    What is the least you will take for it all?
    I know you asked for a price check, but thats never enough.
    So please just give me a rough idea of your 'Buy it now' price.

    The last 10+ posts, I have no idea why you consider troll posts. People are generally interested.

    My last post is also true, when dealing in BULK deals such as this, you will NOT be getting maximum value. To maximize profits, you would have to split the collection up, and sell it piece by piece. This is just how the retail world works.

    Now if you dont think 1.5b is enough (To be fair,t he lost offer in here was 1.8), then post a price you seem more acceptable. Dont be afraid to start too high, as anyone who has the money to spend on a whole collection, should know how to haggle. Say something like "Im looking for around 3B but willing to take offers". Then those who are interested will approach you and go from there, such as "I think 3b is too high, how about 2?" Then you proceed to answer back, "Well, How about 2.5". Its just an example, as I havent seen your museum and have no idea on its worth.

    Speaking from experience you are gonna have a tough time getting the price you want for your collection. Unless you have a ton of extremely hard to get items its a tough sell to unload everything together. I am not saying this to upset you but just trying to help. I think the best way for you to get what you are looking for is to break it up. Most people who have that kinda gold to buy a collection like this are just gonna split it up to sell and they know the amount of work that is involved with it and are not making offers to break even in the end. For that amount of work they will be looking to make a bill or two themselves. Again please dont take this the wrong way as I have been in the same boat you are in now, and it always seems to come down to breaking the collection up in the end.

    Hmm,
    So you want to sell your gold for more gold? (1b in boxes)
    Couldnt you take that out and lower the price by 1b?
    Or do you want real $? (which isnt allowed here) :)

    Why would you sell gold .... for gold? If you are wanting to sell the castle and all its content FOR gold... perhaps take the gold out first and you'll be a billion ahead of the game. :)

    Oh wait, it was only a price check, right?

    I'm going to estimate those 10 white boxes at a billion gold. I've got a damn good feeling I'm pretty spot-on about their value.

    Hope that helps! Good luck!

    I'm curious as to why such an *outrage* at the *lowball* offers. If you look at your history thats all you have ever done on stratics, you laugh at people who ask for a price on items that you deam *outrageous* and then try to lowball and snag europa rare items for your museum to *preserve the history of the shard*. I think what you should do is contact those who sold you items for a lower price under that banner and sell them BACK their items for what you bought em for, if they don't want em great, if they do I think you should so the items stay on europa. At your 7 billion estimate, in your words "lol, just lol...."

    That being said i'll bid/offer 750 million for your rare checks valued at 1 billion gold.

    The billion in checks wasn't there when I made my 1.8bil offer obviously. Nice try though....As for the 7bil aproximation; It was more like almost 3bil by my reckoning with all that was available to see, with much of what was there being really tough to sell. Also it would have taken a weeks worth of transferring gold and items, a long time to price and sort, an easy month to sell it all , 6-8 transfer tokens involved, a weeks time of not being able to xfer elsewhere while taking care of this stuff. Id have to say 1.8bil wasnt too far off from a negotiable price for both parties involved. And yes,... you would definately be a lot better off splitting it all up to get the retail prices you are obviously looking for. and yet it appears you are looking to sell it for something other than gold...best of luck in any case.. even if you were rather rude about it all.

    I don't think you needed to justify the offer in anyway. Lineman and others have said everything that needed to be said.

    Bottom line is you bid what you think works for you and the seller either agrees or not.

    I never am concerned with the result as their is ALWAYS another opportunity right around the corner.

    Just out of curiosity.....if you really are quitting....what are you going to do with the 4 bil you get from selling it all? I've always wondered that....*I'm gonna quit and sell all my stuff..now I have all this gold that's worthless because I'm quitting and wont' need it*

    I'm not trolling or anything , it's a legit question.....when I truly quit a game I give all my stuff away to friends then delete all my chars since there's no point in keeping anything.

    Just seems that you have your panties all in a bunch thinkin ppl are *low-balling* you when you claim you're quitting and the gold is going to be useless to you anyway? :/

    But good luck and sorry to hear you're leavin.
