    All you rare collecting crazy peoples out there. What are some of the most expenseive, rarest, most unbelievable items in UO to date? I've heard of stuff being sold for BILLIONS of gold. Is it true?

    years and years and years ago I had a cursor. I forget where I got it but it was the UO hand. Could be locked down in my house. I got banned unfortunately and quit right after so hopefully someone got it from my house and its somewhere. I would have no idea how much it would be worth today but probably a great deal

    I'll tell you what I like. Antique Plate Armour! It's red colored plate. Does anyone know anyone who owns some nowadays? That's proper pimp!

    There was one for sale afew months back actually.. Nails Warstein sold it for a friend. I'm not too sure what it ended up at. A hefty sum though.

    As for the most expensive item - fairly tricky. Most items that would be worth a lot are usually unique and thus aren't offered for sale very often. It's like trying to put a price tag on the Mona Lisa. We won't be able to know the value until it's actually sold.

    I had 3 or 4 pieces right around when it was 'given out' and ended up selling it for a relatively low amount to a fellow Europa collector. I think it sold for a few hundred mil a piece a few months ago.

    That was my initial thought too. Man I'm in the guild that originally won it (i think it was sold for 120m when gold was $10/m and they split the money)... it's so insane.

    Where did this shroud come from? and any pics?

    It was a shroud won by an individual that participated in a PvP Tournament on Oceania. I believe it was a free-for-all, but one guild pretty much took it over and let one of their members win. They sold the shroud (as Petrify will attest to) and split the money. It looks exactly like an Ari or Bal shroud but with 10 physical and 5 cold resist instead. I'd easily consider it the most expensive item in UO.

    The most expensive are the ones you bought just before it was nerfed into an item everyone could get for a 100000th of the cost. :)

    Meh, with UO getting swamped by shrouds (of all colors and mods), I do not find it that appealing anymore. I would personally pay lot more gold for some of the other items out there.

    Well this may sound silly but.............

    The most expensive rares in game are these 2 - MY eye of newt (first rare thing i brought fom another player) and.......... MY orcish Engineers tool kit. Expensive because the eye of newt was firstpiece of my collection and the tool kit because it was the first big rare (to me at least at the time) that i idoced.

    Would take lots of mils (unless i decide to quit) for anyone to prise those from my collection.

    I think we're talking about items that the general public will agree that is the most expensive. But how about listing some of the more expensive items in the game. Things that are worth over 500 mil. Can people list some of them?

  17. My Favorite item to date is still the Lily Shroud.
    Neon Purplish Shroud with no mods (no other shroud color like it)

    Cebo Shroud also pretty cool (dull blue color with 10 Stealing/10 Stealth)

    My favourite was always shadow artillery, did they get duped? or any of them still around?

    Also those coloured horses i once saw on an asian shard looked pretty cool.

    If I'm not mistaken the rainbow cloth should be the most expensive item on UO. because if you own some, then you can crash the server at your will.

    for those of you that don't remember that. if you make a certain kind of shirt out of it, sit in a certain kind of chair facing the right way, the server goes down. (I left out a few details just in case haha).

    Rainbow cloth is illegal, ergo not worth anything.

    that all depends on what you mean. eye candy value? nothing. but "worth" a lot. the open market might be zero VALUE, but the WORTH is the most ever because it's a rare that goes way beyond eye candy and people have always wanted it haha.

    I agree 100% with you, not much sweeter than owning a castle OYHS, dont even ask about the excitement level of placing it : )
