PvP Shop/Vendor?

Discussion in 'UO Factions' started by Narda Dag'thul, Mar 18, 2009.

  1. Hi there,

    just a question: In a pvp heavy area like Yew gate, what would you expect from a well stocked vendor? I'm not so much into pvp but I like crafting :D

    There we go:


    • Potions - GH, GC, TR, Agility, Strenght, Poison (greater, deadly?), Invis?, Conflag? Kegs or bottles or both? If in bottles, 10/50/100 per stack?

    • Bandaids - enhanched/normal? Stacksize?

    • Bolas

    • Trapped boxes

    • Orange petals?

    • Apples/grapes (stacksize?)

    • Arrows/bolts (again, stacksize?)

    • Dp'd stuff (shuriken, darts etc.)?
    Do I miss something here? And finally the important question: Would you buy from such a vendor or do you all have your own mules or use your blue chars for shopping in trammel/malas?

    TIA, Narda

    Probably not a good idea to have a vendor in a war zone. You would have 5 stealth archers just waiting for someone to buy something and then kill the person and take the items, but the items you did mention do sell well on some shards, so I would make runes and drop them off around the moongate.

    Pots, I'd do stacks of 20 in all pot types.

    bandies, stacks of 50 and stacks of 100, I'd just do enhanced and faction bandies.

    bolas maybe single and stacks of 3

    apples stacks of 10

    grapes i never use so i dont know

    dont use orange petals so i dont know

    arrows stacks of 100 same w/ bolts

    trapped boxes will def make you some cash. vendors around yew sell them at like 20k per b/c its all the resistles homos that play at the gate.

    First off Kellgory is wrong, yew gate vendor houses can make a ton of money.

    Speaking of stealthers, smoke bombs or egg bombs would probably sell well.

    Also you can charge like 1k per repair contract too. It's really convient for the reds, they'll pay lots even though the deed costs 5gp to make.
     
  5. Thanks for the answers!

    Sheesh... 20k for a box made out of a few logs and darts with a newbie tinker? Thats just crazy, Lynk. ;) No faction bandies here, but tons normal enhanched. I did forgot about the repair contracts and the smokebombs, good idea.

    I'll give it a try next week, about 2 screens away from the Yew gate here on europa the smallest 3-story could fit.

    There is a gate vendor present, but last time he stocked was around oct 2008 or so. It's a shame, really nice house, great plot.

    Boxes sell for so much because they are a pain in the ass to make and it's difficult to script them. And most people play gimplates now of some sort without resist.
