    It costed me 2 mills to get my bow back from Gloria Estafan KOC
    That's alot of gold for me and I doubt anyone would pay that much on an action for a bow like mine.

    Now I like my bow but feel I was treated badly and paid to much to get it back.

    Magical Shortbow
    42 Hit Stamina Leech
    44 Hit Lightning
    5 Hit chances Increase
    30 Swing speed Increase
    57 Damage Increase

    Please tell me what you would think it is worth. No I'm not thinking of selling it.

    I could understand someone demand so much if I or my guildmembers had demanded an unfair price for trading back something but I would never allow my guild to do that.

    It bugs me it dropped when it was blessed, sure I can't prove that :( and it bugs me someone take advantage of it and I had to go trough my 5 accounts banks to find the money to pay the money to bet my bow back.

    I know I should just shut up and move on but I really want to know the value of my bow. Sorry

    Supply and demand!
    Yes Freja you paid a ransom not what the bow was worth, but like you already posted it has sentimental value and you also have friends who are willing to pay the price.
    This is why I buy from Chad's vendor, Overpriced? Perhaps but I feel he just like you are a bennifit to the shard.

    Oh?
    With her being red wouldn't the hit lightning be a major detractor?
    Sorry I am quite clueless about weapons not having a crafter and just now learning a fencer.

    Oh and Edit! It's all pixels.

    The hit lightning is not a problem as red as it only hit one agressore to me or someone I attack but the primary ability lightning arrows are a problem as it will hit everyone not in guild/alliance with me.
    Also the bow have very low basis damage so if the hit lightning fail, it will deal very poor damage.

    Ok, let me qualify my post.

    I would pay 2 million for that bow. In fact, I would love to buy it if you ever do sell it :)

    However, I would use it for pvm and not pvp. It is in the pvm realm that the bow would shine.

    That said, if I was buying the bow I would pay that. I think the ransom should have been lower considering the conditions, but thats just me.

    2 mil or no bow?
    2 mil or no bow?
    2 mil or no bow?

    Weight you options, pick one or the other, then shut your pie hole.
    Don't get on the boards after someone showed you some compassion and slam them for it.

    Seriously Freja, it's not about whether the bow was about being worth 2mil. You lost an item. The person was willing to sell it back. You should consider yourself lucky!!!!! Do you know how many people have lost things to never have it returned??? Gloria could have easily kept that bow. You were not treated badly.

    I don't know, I feel I was as I know the bow was blessed and it was a bug I lost it.
    When I asked to pay it back, I did not expect it to be that expensive.

    I am happy I got it back but I do not find it was a fair payback price.

    You right, I had no choice, "pay 2 mills or lose your bow:("
    2 mills are alot of money for me, I would never run around with an item of that value if it was not blessed.

    I have very hard with feeling lucky right now, but I will get over it.

    I made this thread to find out if that bow really are worth 2 mills and I guess because I have hard with understand this :(

    If you felt it wasn't worth 2 mills, then you shouldn't have authorized someone to pay to get it back for you, simple as that.

    I said it before and I'll say it again. As many times as you've touted this shard's superiority over production shards, you sure are crying a lot about something that happens here very often. If this is such a problem for you, production shards and insurance may be the way to go for you. Then you only lose 600 gp for the bow when you die!

    Suck it up and move on. Quit crying.

    You two are full of compassion. Freja never gives anyone any trouble, if she wants to rant a little no problem. But to tell her to shut up and go away is just not right. Great community you have here on Siege.

    I guess you are right

    I do not want Item Insurance. And yes, I guess I am crying :(
    I think the main problem is, I did not count on the risk for losing it to a bug, I thought it was safe.

    I'm not trying to slam Gloria, I just find the price was to high but you right, I could had choosed not to buy it back.

    To be honest, that bow might not be worth that much. I think you've been bamboozled. I've crafted better with an oaks kit. Not bashing it, just sayin.

    "Shut your pie hole"??? Da**, Enigma, you sure are a nice guy. Were you born with such a compassionate soul? Or did you build it with legos?

    She asked what a fair price was for the bow, not for someone to jump into the thread and ridicule her. Thankfully, it is enough for me to know she is a good person and well respected on the shard by the people that matter.

    Don't worry...from past observation, whenever he displays that side too much, Patty usually finds a way to give him a good :twak: where everyone can see it, and then takes his Lego set away for a while.

    @Freja: I'd have a hard time coming up with 2M as well, but I'm glad you were able to do it, and be reunited with your bow. I'd be happy to help a bit with recovering your ransom funds, and I'd guess others would too if given an opportunity.

    If you have a vendor, just put a junk item on it for 200K, and I'll come buy it. I do not log in anymore unless I have a specific reason, so let me know when you plan to do it, and the vendor location, so you don't get a lot of vendor fees. :)

    Thanks for the offer to you and others but I will be ok. I think it's time I use a little more time training my tamer and learn how to use her for farming, that way I will have easier with replacing my lose in the future.

    I'm sad to hear you lost your joy from playing, I know that feeling. I had been playing more the last months, thanks to guildmembers and to Shalimar for letting me help with NEW. I had found reasons to login again, that's really nice.

    2m is a rip off for a short bow and that bow isn't worth more then 100k IMO.

    To each his own I guess. Personally, I find a shortbow very useful at spawns and one with 44 lightening, 30 ssi, and high DI is pretty darn good for that. You could make the 2 million back in a single spawn.

    1) what bug did you lose your bow to? Was it the you forgot to rebless it bug??
    2) skylark your right normally when i go over the deep end patty puts me in place.... however, you see she posted right behind me and it was the same opinion as mine.
    3) This is exactly why whenever this happens to people I say trash the damn thing cause they are always ungrateful for your willingness to be a nice guy. I do not mind being thought of or called a heartless A$$ but I refuse to be nice and called an A$$ for my effort, which is exactly what she is doing to Gloria.
    4)As far as that bow being worth 2 mil. well you paid it so it quite certainly is worth that much to you. If he had said 2.5 mil and you paid it well then that also would have been what it was worth to you. Never mind what fair market price is on an item of that quality , it is what it was worth to YOU.
    5) You have your bow back.... so again shut your pie hole.

    LOL...I saw Patty had posted in this thread, I just meant eventually you would get it for something, so people could take comfort in that expectation. :D

    What is more insane about this complaint is that people were offering more gold than that for him to NOT sell it back. The pool was up to 4 mil if he didn't sell it. So much for being nice.

    i use a repeating xbow for spawns.. 44 Hit Area 35 SSI 45 DI
    requires no mana at all to AoE kill stuff.. and Fre. i agree with others i would not have put down 2 mil for a bow like that.. good mods, but "Magical Short" kind of defeats it.
