    I've never seen one go for 300mill but 150-250mill is probably a more accurate range. The talking ones going for 250 whereas non-speaking ones going closer to 150.

    Your post is priceless because:

    1)

    Your dad sold to you one of the most heavily duped items in UO history!!!

    2)

    Again, priceless!!
     
  11. Listen up NOOBS...

    His "dad" didn't sell him anything... His "dad" gave him the item on consignment to sell if he wanted to or keep it for himself...

    I didn't buy it, I got it in trade on a house...

    To whoever it was that grabbed it when he unlocked it at his castle, we'll be watching to see if one goes up for sale so I hope whoever stole it did so for personal use...

    Bottom line Alexander... You just learned a multi-million gold piece lesson...

    Whoever the trammy was that pulled off the old school trick... Nice one ace... I'll get ya back in spades... ;)

    Ouch. Sorry to hear that Alexander. Always use detect hidden, even if you think you're alone and you keep your doors locked. Hopefully this will help someone else from falling for the same thing.

    sorry to hear of your loss alex...really that sucks...

    after a little probing there was 2 x 2 story statue server births...one was in moonglow and the other in dungeon....think deciet but i maybe wrong again...anyways one talked and the other did not....no idea if a dupe of the moonglow or a dupe of the dungeon one does talk....thats to say...i guess it depends which of the two was duped by ''a duper''...

    again sorry it was snatched but always use detect hidden b4 releasing anything or placing anything to lockdown

    im not the enemy...really...i just say what i see....

    good luck if u can a retrival.....

    I think the thing that bothers me most about this situation is the culture where people think it's ok to do this. It's almost a common event now to see where someone got this valuable rare scammed/stolen from them in a rather deceitful manner. Be it scamming or hiding and picking it up when then unlock it.

    I find it really disturbing how people can steal from others on this game and there is no path for retribution or recovery, there is no justice.

    Player demanded that they lose their ability to get justice with the introduction of trammel, insurance and easier stealthing rules.

    Justice has nothing to tram or fel. It has to do with the ability to track and find out who actually performed the deed and impart justice. Justice isn't just killing the character.
     
  17. Guys...

    I've been in UO since Moby **** was a minnow...

    What happened here IS Ultima Online at it's finest...

    (Side Note to the GM's)
    If Alexander tries to regain any loss here, deny him... I'm his ol man and you can use this thread as why you wont... Sorry son, but this is UO, not Everquest, not WOW, not Tabula Rosa, etc, etc, etc...

    This is the Grand-Daddy of MMORPG's and it's always been (Even in Trammel) a dog eat dog world... If you cant secure your items in game properly then you your opening yourself up for calamity and it will find you... Count on it...

    What I cant stand is when some trammy looses a valueable item and then cries their precious little eyes out to a GM asking for a hand out or some type of compensation for their loss and to any GM's that have indulged, SHAME ON YOU!!! That kind of action is not the essence of UO and it's not what UO is all about... I shouldn't have to school a GM here but if your handing out rares like it's candy or, dare I say it, dropping castles for players in unplaceable areas for other players, then your abusing your power and being unfair to the players that have to much pride than to accept such a gift out of respect for the other players in the game... It's appauling and disgusting and I personally wouldn't wanna mark myself or this esteemed guild, born in Felucca, with such a tag as being a trammy begger fighting with other trammy beggers over door prizes that no one but themselves consider valueable... It's nonsense and it's ridiculous Game Masters!!! If you wanna make something a true rare, put it on a beast or monster and make the drop ratio astronomical... FOLKS, THAT IS A RARE!!! Not some door prize!!!

    Alexander... You weren't playing back when the virtual world of UO was full of danger and every con-artist in America had an account or 10... But there was a time when locking something that valueable on your front steps would be considered arrogant and would beg other players to scam it right out of your hands...

    In my book... Your not a true UO player until you've lost 100-200mil... So welcome to the club... ;)

    Actually justice was killing the character, looting your item back and taking anything they had too.

    Okay I'll do the moderator's job here and say that this thread is basically over... Everyone learned there lesson and we got some history facts on the two-story statue.

    Just remember:
    #1. Never lock down an event item on your steps or anywhere near the foundation.

    #2. Use detect hidden, this is an online game and your best friend could be your worst enemy. Even if your house is private, there still might be people accessed to the house. If your house is public, make sure to secure your doors and then use detect hidden.

    Well would you look at that? "Avoiding Lock Down Scams 101".

    I hope the statue is returned or you receive another for a good deal Alex.

    So not only did Alexander change his story 3 times in this thread but I personally saw him trying to sell this statue to a guy in Luna a couple days ago. Seems legit...

    Also Sebastion tried to sell me an Invuln Blue dye for 10 mil claiming it was ultra rare. Being a con artist must run in the family.
     
  21. i stopped reading this post about 4 comments in....ugg arguing ! anyway i dont know the exact price but if it talks all the time "each time ur char walks by it" it should be worth a bit more....there are 3 kinds of these statues "was just having this convo with a friend" you have the ones that dont talk at all, you have the ones that will talk but only the 1st time they see your char, then you have the version that just likes to talk all the time lol. the last seems to be the highest priced and most collectable.....if i was u id just hang on to it.

    I see where your coming from and i take no offence to your accusation. But yes, my dad did give it to me....... but....... I HAD TO PAY HIM BACK IN CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TIME, so basically i did buy it. I figured that information wasnt really needed in this thread but to clear up that accusation i posted it in this post. And what you saw was me CONSIDERING selling it. I never did once advertise at luna bank or any bank that i was selling it. A guy was indeed advertising and his name was "Corruption" but weirdly enough when i logged on he had the very same armor but with a name, "Perfection", he was addvertising that he was buying one. Me being stupid i partied him and we were talking. He offered me a large amount for it and i actually would have traded it for that amount. But......... when i went to my house to unlock it, it vanished. And the thing is, i didnt know anyone where it was. And yes, when i did make the statement above when i said i would sell, this offer blew my mind and i wasnt thinking at that time. Well as everyone says if its to good to be true, dont fall for it, agian i wasnt using my head. Now... i dont know if that story about my dad is true or not, but i posted this because i wanted to be clearer and to clean up that accusation.
