    So it is a different hue than cocoa pulp, right? It kinda looks like chocolate to me and the cocoa pulp has a reder hue.

    Real Pumice does not change color, it NEVER has. I have 3 sets of moonstones that do not change color when clicked.

    Real Evil Mage cloth was obtained from killing Evil Mages ONLY. It can also be replicated by a Special Dye Tub. The only way to tell true Evil Mage cloth is by double blessed clothing or [Exceptional] tag.

    Zog cloth was a rare color that spawned in Tailors Inventory but is no longer rare after the introduction of Special Dye Tubs. Though there are a lot of people that say zog cloth never truly existed.

    Zig can actually still be obtained if one knows how, but I'm not sharing that secret.

    A color similar to true mare cloth was also craftable at one point via the using of thrasher tails. It was fixed shortly after they came out.

    True pumice is grey, -but- the original hue pumice can be made via exploit currently, so that is no longer really a rare in my opinion. The bug to make the colored pumice to the best of my knowledge hasn't been active in a number of years.

    Dark red/brown bloodspawn, neon yellow-gold 'eye of newt' etc are current exploit items.

    These are all items that I plan on putting up in a sticky thread about protecting the community.

    False evil mage cloth can't be replicated by a special dye tub. And that only identifies evil mage made clothing that was crafted during that time period. Many collectors still have the original cloth.

    I knew the color was very similar to true mare, but couldn't be absolutely positive it was the 'exact' same hue.
    Thanks Omnius!

    So that would explain why my bloodspawn is reddish, eh?

    Oh well, still works for display.
     
  14. That's not true actually. There was a bug where one could make pure mare cloth with a certain item for a while. The evil mage cloth with the [exceptional] tag just meant that it was crafted during a certain period of time in UO, just like [sewn by] or the blessed (blessed) [blessed] title tells the same.

    Evil mage cloth does exist though in mass quantities, its just a matter of when it was crafted or blessed.

    Yep yep.

    Idk if I'd list them as completely fake rares though.. as I mean they're still worth something.

    It's not like "fake" as in a book with a name like "A blood stained book" that's complete trash or something.

    It's just not the real thing, but still rare to some extent.

    And that is the exact reason why items like it will always be sold.

    When people say "Zog" cloth what exactly is that? I've heard people refer to both the dark green cloth and the dark gray cloth as zog (the latter I always knew as 'shadowlord' cloth on Atlantic).

    If referring the dark green cloth, I know that it spawns as clothing on some player vendors when you place them. I've successfully stacked a cut up shirt from a vendor and some of the real stuff that I had stored away. Obviously not a very efficient way to get some of it, especially considering it is still VERY abundant in some player's inventories, at least on Atlantic.
