    I have been looking for that " The Wanderer" track for a long time now and finally ran across a music box that had it. The box has 28 common and that one rare track. The box I already has is pretty much complete except for the The Wanderer and that one you get from the inactive quest. I figured I would just take it out of the box I purchased and add it to the one I had but have been unable to find a way to do that. Does anyone know how to take a track out of the music box once it is placed into it? I have even considered locking it down and using an axe on it but my luck the box and gears all go poof, so I figured I would ask here first.

    Well dang... thanks for the confirmation of what I feared. Time to start over collecting the majority of them again.

    You might be able to get "The Wanderer" from quest in the Abyss. from the Npc Sutek? I'm not sure.

    Suteks Dirty gear, when double clicked turns into a random gear for the music box, so it might be possible...

    That quest can be a pain in the arse.

    You can't get it from the Sutek quest.

    There is no current way to get it..... though I honestly think they ought to add it to the Spring Clean point items.... I think there are many folk who would use their points to get one.

    That is to easy. There is a long list of old and even new that could be added to the DOOM drop list. Fluff the list with more unique decos. Tweek the current arty drops so they don't look lame next to something I can loot of a Wrong Lizardman.

    would love a doom revamp.

    wasn't one of those rare gears an old quest from 7 plus years ago. I've been playing 6 so I know it was before my time.

    Yes. The Wanderer track was which is why I jumped at the chance to snag the second music box at an auction because it was in it. You very seldom ever see those come up for sale either.

    Not sure what just the gear goes for honestly. I wound up giving 8 for the music box at the auction just because it was in it. I would have gone that for just the gear fast. I would have to stop and consider purchasing it for more than 10m tho.... everyone is different, so others could go higher *shrugs*

    Because I believe that you ought not have things no longer available. Rarity is only for people who want to get rich... The rest of the people who want to play and have fun and collect and fill their box shouldn't have to go without because some idiot thinks they have to have a "rare" and lets be totally honest here they aren't "that" rare.... Hell anyone who played then probably got 3 or 4... I know I had at least 4 .... Catering to the rares collectors is part of what is wrong with UO now..... it's part of what is in my opinion destroying the EM events and it's part of what makes people look for ways to dupe things..... and it's part of what makes people hack other peoples accounts. In my opinion it promotes BAD THINGS.

    It also promotes resentment... and people getting upset about not being able to have things... making them think this game sucketh... and gives yet another excuse to quit. So I don't like it.

    I am on both sides of MalagAste's argument myself. Things like music gears should still be around and available for everyone, honestly I think dropping it off totally was just an oversight by the team but could be wrong. I mean they even kept the epiphany armor around as a drop on Niporailem, they could have done the same with the gear *shrugs*. Things like the Candle of Love, Blood Purified Book of Truth, Conjurers Garb etc should still be able to be gotten in SOME kind of manner even if it just has a replica tag on it which would still give collector value to the original items.

    Granted I am 100% biased when it comes to the Blood Purified Books, I followed each and every second of the plot line (helping defend the Bane's camp, giving up the suit etc) that led up to that but real life kept me out of the game when the books were able to be gotten. Once I was finally able to get back in the game the arc was done.

    For those unfamiliar, here are some facts:

    - The actual name of the gear is called "Veritae's Music Box Gear". Once placed in the music box, it becomes "The Wanderer".

    - You had to do a quest called "Veritae's Plea" where you had to collect 10 "Book of Truth?" randomly found as loot on MOBS from the different Britannian Dungeons (Shame, Despise, etc.) and turn them into Veritae who was in Moonglow. For the 10 books, she gave you a wooden box with the gear inside.

    - It was only available to do once per character.

    - The event ran from early 2006 to early 2007. About a year.

    - Currently, you cannot obtain the "Veritae's Music Box Gear" in any way other than buying it off of a player run vendor or by buying a music box with it already added.

    - The last time I saw a gear for sale was 3 years ago for 5 mil. It wasn't even on the vendor for a day before it was purchased. I haven't seen one for sale since.

    I would imagine that the gear by itself is worth more than the music box with it added already, mainly due to the fact that once added, they cannot be removed. You'll probably save a little money by buying the music box rather than buying the gear alone.

    The gear is called the wanderer

    [​IMG]

    I sold one on Atlantic about 12 mths ago, still have 5 not including the one in my music box.
    Was a poor design not being able to remove a gear once added.

    well i dont think im a IDIOT because i have a differing view then you do, but alas if you insist on calling people names like a 5 year old in the playground so be it.
    so playing the game and collecting the collectable stuff is a BAD THING.
    really.
    so by your thinking everyone should start the game with everything?
    my kids that just started playing should have 15 year vet rewards in their bank waiting for them.
    we should all be rolling around with phat castles loaded to the rafters with every item in game?
    so what should we strive for in game?
    where is the incentive to out and do the hard stuff and get the cool rewards?

    and how is not rehashing stuff that you could get for a YEAR catering to the rare collectors?
    i did the event, i put the gears in my music box.
    i look at it, i remember the event, i remember the fun time getting the books.
    the current player who is the collector trying to fill HIS music box is the collector.
    so you say we shouldn't cater to the collector yet you are saying we SHOULD do exactly that.

    so collecting stuff is why items get duped.
    its why accounts get hacked?
    do you get out at all?
    i seriously have to know.
    because that is some of the lamest stuff i have ever heard.
    i have by far the nicest account in the game.
    there is maybe one of Taz's that comes close to my main, but i have by far the biggest and best account in the game, yet in 15+ years i have never once been hacked, and i dont run anything for protection that you guys dont.
    and duping?
    really? so the big token duping incident, we got those in game at an event..... ya, ok.

    no, one of the worst things the dev's ever did was bring up the old items and put them out at the corner store for everyone to have.
    one of the biggest thing UO had going for it was the collecting of old stuff, and they killed it.
    there was nothing funner then going into someones place and checking out the cool stuff they have collected over the years.
    now i dont bother even looking at peoples places anymore, its all replica's and turn in rewards.

    NO... the devs messed up big time, restarting a certain ''Its already failed once due to corruption but we will do it again to plz the rares peeps'' program

    [whatever] END :next:

    And, for all those whining about "ruining a rare", the devs PROMISED back then that the items would all eventually be made available via other means. So far, the only items from the bell, book and candle quest chains that became available have been alacrity scrolls and the Virtue armor piece (gorget?).

    It's high time that the Music Box gear and the Redeemer sword (and Paladin swords in general) become available.

    I would love a Wanderer tune for my tavern music box, but have resigned myself to never getting one as the 'rares community' revolves around other people not having stuff.

    ive seen several wanderer tracks on vendors in the past year for between 5 - 12 mil. while uncommon, they can be found if you keep your eyes open.
