    even tho they are making replicas wouldnt having a non tagged replica be better in a museum?' im sure they'll lose value cuz of desirability of those who buy rares to use for their stats but wouldnt a non tagged replica show better of a collection and even a history than a museum full of replica this n replica that? or is owning these items in a museum just useless now either way? thanks

    just my opinion, but I don't see the replicas replacing the originals in any way... they will be tagged as replicas, yes? and for many museum owners or collectors it's pretty much the history of the item and not the item itself.. the originals will have the history, and the replicas will not

    will be nice for those of us that don't have the original of a wanted item.. can place the replica and a book detailing the history of the original, with maybe notes about a museum that does have the original on display

    I really don't see the replicas as a bad thing for collectors... anything that sparks interest in preservation of the histories is fine by me
     
  3. Originals are going to be better, for that replicas can be stolen Woohoo! hehe and they have the replica tag, and duribility, which is a dead giveaway.. so Originals>1000Replicas IMHO

    i think they will both serve the purpose they are suppose to.

    the Originals will be in musums for people to admire.

    The replicas will be affordable and usable by anyone for whatever they want.
    So they know they are not spending 200 mill on a most likly duped Item. but 20 mill on a real item they can use and abuse and rebuy if they need it just like the crimmy or the crystaine ring

    I think originals would still be better. Its like a hand-signed CD vs a perfect xerox'ed version.

    But for the practical users a replica is probably just as nice as the original one. I mean yea you cant use powder of fortification of them but they are probably all going to have 255/255 durability to start with. If you fix it with a legendary deed when it's down to last 5 to 10 points (100% repair chance), you actually get around 15000 points (or more I am not gonna go get my TI-86 for the exact number) before it has to be replaced. And by then I am sure there are probably hundreds of them in the market.

    i agree originals still be better. theres 1 tho i'll put in my museum, ari, cuz ive always liked that item n its way outta my pay range. but i dont think people will frown too much on just 1 replica in my place. i hope not. but ill definetly wear a couple, like i bet most will wear the lt sash for its properties, the crown just so that big white top hat can come off my head(hat of magi),and any item like robe or cloak thats gives either cold/poison/energy will benefit me nicely.
    so yea, im thinking all in all replicas will work out great. not hurt collectors cuz they arnt the real thing. it would of been better if this never happened but i think its gonna be great to slow the downward spiral most of us have been feeling here.

    unfortunately the "originals" in most cases are the more frequently xerox'ed versions ;)
