    I got one of these from a friend and can not make it work for the life of me.

    I posted this in the Player's Corner and had lots of lookers, but no responses.

    Does anyone know how to make these work? Do they work?

    I copied this from the UO Store, but it does not help:

    It's the earrings which softens the desire to the money of a player's vendor by the power of magic. The vendor with these earrings comes to accept the reduction in his/her daily charges based on the discount rate displayed on the item property.

    Merchant's Trinket has two kinds from which the discount rate and charges differ.
    90 charges (Thin Red)
    40 charges (White)
    You can check whether the discount rate has influenced properly from the vendor menu. When you make it equip opening the vendor menu, please close and reopen the menu.

    Notes
    1 charge is consumed when vendor's daily charge is drafted on.
    If earrings' charges become 0, it loses the effect.
    It displays the warning gump when you make your rental vendor equip this item.
    This item doesn't have blessed property in Siege/Mugen.

    Thanks

    Sounds like you need to equip your vendor with them for the effect to take place...

    So these make my own vendors give a discount---they do not give me a discount when I buy from another player's vendor? What good is that...lol

    No, they don't give you or anyone else discounts for buying things from other players...

    If you have a vendor, that vendor will charge gold equal to a percentage of the value of the items you put on it for sale. If you equip the earrings on your vendor, the ammount he charges will go down, meaning you'll save yourself cash...

    Sounds like you misunderstood the item's function... :cool:
