Question about Faction items and costs

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by Duke SP, Aug 15, 2009.

    I just put a suit together i want to wear and it comes to 120k of silver.Now as most of you know silver runs 25-30 gold each so that makes the suit cost 3 million gold or 120k of silver.Does anybody think that's just a tad bit ridiculous of silver or gold for these items?I've farmed silver before i get about 2500 silver per hour, that's attended and not using anything illegal.Which means i'll need to farm silver for 50 hours to get my suit.Does anyone think this is kinda crazy the way they have the factions items silver prices setup?

    Now i don't mean to be a negative nancy but honestly the way things are it's gonna push the poor people out of PvP and the rich will continue to buy super suits and control PvP.Any advice or ideas?

    My suit for my mage consists of...
    Fey Legs. 5000 Silver
    Rune Beetle Carapace. 5000 Silver
    Kasa. 5000 Silver
    Crimson Cincture. 10000 Silver
    And i bless my Orny. 25000 silver to replace total.

    Now faction people tend to sell gear back for 1s = 10g. So a Kasa would cost you 50k gold to buy back. Run the Totem of Void and avoid more silver if you dont need the hit% from the Tali. Running a dexxer costs a little more since you bless your weapon and must shell out more Silver for the Tali and Ring of the vile.

    I dont know ive never bought silver. Ive always LRC suit 2 EV or demon slayer mace farmed it. After you buy the items most people are happy to sell back after you die. So its not like your paying 30 to 1 every death.

    Just a side question then, how long does it take you to farm the silver you need for a suit?

    Well that is just the starting price... The buy backs are usally alot cheaper, so its kinda a one time price the high one anyway. Unless as you point out you go ALL in for the uber items, but that has always been expensive to lose and I think should continue to be expensive to lose.... My advise dont wear what you cant afford to lose ;-)

    The way its all set up with the silver and thing is as it should be if not to cheap in my mind considering how relaticly easy it is to make silver/gold if you do it the right way... depending on which fatcion you are either do demon temple or blighted grove and you can easily make alot more than 2500 silver an hour.

    Also a guy with an understanding wife and 2 accounts can earn silver 2x as fast = ).

    With me and my wife both going at it for hours a night it took about 2 nights get the silver i needed to buy my suit. Mind you i have 2 suits one for dexxer one for mage. So you alone should be able to spend 3-4 nights and have all teh silver you need.
