    Refused to accept my bid. I realize he puts that in his OP, but couldn't he put the reserve as the starting bid, and save me the trouble of staying up to get it? Therefore can't recommend him, and I'll be reluctant to trade with him in the future. Everyone you've been warned.

    This is what I call "Money/Item Greed", and a LOT of people have it.

    Lets use the Blackthorn Armor set for example:

    - Only 10 of each piece given out, except the leggings, there were 7.
    - Awesome Hugh
    - It the name of a MAJOR Ultima Lore Character in the title of every piece
    - And each piece is meant for a suit

    The Blackthorn Armor pieces have only went for 300M, that's the highest I've seen.



    This tunic above:

    - 30 Given out
    - Awesome Color
    - Does not consist of a complete suit - yet
    - The name isn't something major or extravagant

    200M is more than enough for a piece like this. But, as everyone else, the OP has the right to sell/not sell.

    I would venture to agree with Nails. If you 'think' that the right price for an item is WAY over the actual price. Don't waste everyone's time and post a starting price you WILL NOT except. Make the starting price your reserve, saves a lot of time, stress, and complaints.

    And also, here is another opinion of mine:

    They always say an Item is only worth what someone will pay. Well... this auction was open for 4 straight days, 96 hours. And yet, Nails was the only one to bid in those 4 days. So I would assume, just by commonsense, that you probably won't get more for it, even if you waited a month, then tried to resell. Why take the chance? You basically got the item for free..... sell it for what it's worth.

    Alright folks, simmer down. Everyone can sell their items at what they would like to sell them at. If it isn't worth that much to you, do not buy it.

    Now that being said, I would suggest to the OP and anyone else selling items that they put a reserve of the lowest they will sell at. If the "start" price is the reserve, than state it in your original post. I know as a buyer, that I get very frustrated participating in an auction and then being told after all the time I spend watching and bidding that the final price was not high enough. Often times, I write the name down for personal reference and I'll be hesitant to bid in their future auctions as I consider it a waste of time. It does NOT mean I consider them untrustworthy. To all sellers if the auction rules are black/white and transparent, you will find you will you will probably get more people participating and higher bids.

    I'm going to lock this thread as the auction is over. I encourage the OP to post the item for sale again with a transparent reserve price so that folks will be reassured about placing their future bids. Good luck!
