    I recently inherited my older brothers accounts and I've been digging through them. Countless old weapons that still have vanquishing on them, some odds and ends. And then i found a Verite Bandana

    Just a plain bandana that says " Verite Bandana"
    I'll post a picture tomorrow
    Any idea if these are worth anything?
    I play on catskills

    Thank you

    There was a bug when making Oil Cloth's.
    That you could aftermaking the oil cloth, use it to make other items.

    Fixed along time ago.
    Can't do it anymore, as far as I know.

    Unfortunately an item like that doesn't have much value in terms of a rare. I mean, someone out there could find it valuable, but not most. I wouldn't get rid of it per se, but it's not really worth anything to be ecstatic about.

    It's not illegal to own either.

    I still have an old Shadow Iron Studded Bustier from around 6 to 7 yrs ago that I've kept as a momento of UO goofs.

    I don't think it would hurt to keep it or sell it, try asking in the rares forum about it and pricing it. Might get a buyer there also.

    It's a clothing rare, and there are some people who collect such things.
    When AoS was launched, all items were converted to the numerical property system.
    Certain colours of cloth or leather item were identified by the system as made of metal, and labelled accordingly.
    They aren't illegal, and they can be valuable if you find an interested buyer.

    actually those arnt the old weapons.

    all the old weapons where converted from might and power and such to number form.
    reguardless if you had them on an inactive account.

    those sound more like the ophidian invasion weapons that they put the old titles on.
    those ones did damage to the 'shields' that the invaders had around them.

    Not a dig at yourself OP, just at the state of the game.

    You inherit an account and the first question thats asked on Stratics isnt
    Where can i find ........
    How do i kill .........
    What do i need to make ..........

    Nope, its How much is this worth.

    Thank you!

    And for Poo up above, i have the ones that say might and power too. I"m not sure how old they are but they look old.. if that makes any sense lol. I've got a big bag of them I'll put a screen shot up when i finally leave the lab.

    As for why I'm asking how much its worth it is because i don't like to keep things i wont use, since there is not apparent use for these things I'd rather have to gold to buy the items i can utilize best.

    Thanks everyone!

    lol, what something is worth is only what someone will pay for it.

    just because people say it is worth something doesn't mean much of anything if no one is actually going to pay that price.

    for example, one person said 2 mil, you said 5-10 mil. does that mean you are offering 5 mil for it?
