    I just started playing on Siege a couple of days ago, and I’m really enjoying my time here so far. Siege is a little more like UO used to be back when I started playing. My character Louise is going to be a crafter with enough magery to cast Energy Vortex and farm the Abyss for imbuing resources.

    I finally had enough money to place a house in Zento today. I was lucky enough to find an empty plot there (I also found a plot in Luna, but it was much smaller, besides I was told Zento and New Magincia are better locations for shops on Siege). Now my question is: Is a shop that sells ingots, BOD rewards, furniture and the occasional imbued armor or weapon worth it?

    Do those things sell on Siege?

    And is there anybody that wants to trade their rewards or money on Siege for Atlantic stuff? I’m going to focus on Siege from now on and put the Atlantic house on my second account that I’m only paying every three months or so, so I don’t need as much stuff on Atlantic anymore.

    P.S.: A big thank you to NEW2. Without the money and the items Tina gave me, my start on Siege wouldn’t have been as easy.

    yeah siege is as close as you'll get to uo the way richard gariot intended it .

    indeed thats probably better for you than luna .

    um yeah a crafter shop like that can do well , with no insurance people always need to replace things.

    yeah imbuers always need resources . go get buisy . ill buy alot of that. (see my commodity broker by new mag bank)

    nope . i dont have any interest in acquiring atlantic gear . altho keep your eyes open . every once in a while someone wants it.

    glad to hear you are giving us a try . hang in there its worth it.

    welcome to siege !

    Welcome Louise.

    As long as you can take a death or two you´ll fit right in here.
    And yeah, ingot vendors shouldn´t have a problem to sell and if you would take on the role as an official shard imbuer that takes orders from basically anyone then your business would flourish.

    only bod rewards might be cbd and runics
    might want to just put a book on your vender telling furnature buyers to make a request on a bulliten board.
    surely you can sell
    runics
    pof
    pinks and blues
    pvp items
    reg suits of both human and gargolye

    there are vender on new mag that will buy resourses at a slightly lower price so those you might want to sell there.

    Welcome! I play Atlantic as well but started way back in 1999 so Siege is way to good to pass up. I may be interested in trading at some point

    Welcome to Siege. Shops selling resources and crafted items do well wherever they are, as long as we know where they are :)

    Thank you for the welcome, everybody. :)

    It's good to read that resources sell here. Can anybody tell me what the normal prices for ingots are here?

    I may put up an ingots vendor in my house soon.

    It will take a while until I'm ready to imbue things though. I'm still leveling blacksmithing and tailoring and haven't even started on imbuing yet!

    Learn the Siege RoT/Alacrity relationship.

    Once you hit RoT you can eat an alacrity scroll and then gain in that skill - log out - wait 5-15 mins - log in and get another gain - log out etc etc. The 15 mins of extra gains that the alacrity scroll offers is in ingame time so if you plan it right you can get 20-30 points with one scroll.

    Very handy when raising crafting skills here and requires very little resources...

    Welcome to Siege!

    I and a guy named Landreu run a shop just east of you. The place with the plants all over the roof. We sell housing deco items, it's not a big seller but you can make a living at it, and if the 2nd house on Siege idea gets set up, house deco should sell very well. :)

    I've already bought quite a bit of house deco from you, Tanivar! Your shop is great!

    I've just set up a vendor with a few thousand ingots at my house. I made them a little cheaper than what the sticky thread in this forum says, so hopefully they'll sell. :)

    the list is a bit high on the ingots. the Going rate is around 20 per, but there's a resource vendor outside the west gate of luna that is selling them for 999,999 gp for 60,000 ingots, which comes out to 16.66 per ingot roughly.
