    1. What is if your Preferred Rare Type?

    B. Event Rare


    2. If you know a rare has been duped or suspected of having been duped
    would it prevent you from purchasing it if the opportunity was
    available?

    Somewhat, but if you need a definitive answer then yes.

    3. If a rare you desire became available, but was for sale by a known
    duper, would it prevent you from purchasing it?

    Yes

    4. If you could have any 3 rares from any category, what would they be?

    Castle Deed
    Crude Corroded Manacles
    Some Damn Rubble! (Like I said I am still small time, I may barely qualify as a museum now---barely I emphasize)

    5. What motivates you to collect/invest in rares?

    Have done most everything else in the game

    6. Which Category do you feel describes your preferred item type?

    B. Deco Items


    7. Where is your ideal Museum located (If you could have your museum
    located in any one spot, where would it be?)

    Where it is in Fel, the original UO, in a relatively isolated spot so that people could come and visit.

  5. 1. What is your Preferred Rare Type?

    B. Event Rare

    2. If you know a rare has been duped or suspected of having been duped
    would it prevent you from purchasing it if the opportunity was
    available?

    I wouldn't avoid it since almost every Rare in UO has been duped now, but th amount I'm willing to pay definitely goes down when I know there are a lot more out there than there should be. If you need an answer the survey, it's No.

    3. If a rare you desire became available, but was for sale by a known
    duper, would it prevent you from purchasing it?

    It depends on the price. If it was ultra cheap, I'd buy it, but if I had the choice of Duper or Non-Duper, I'd choose Non-Duper. So the answer for the survey is No.

    4. If you could have any 3 rares from any category, what would they be?

    Lt. Guard Sash
    +10 Physical Robe (Ari?)
    Vine Cord Sandles

    A. PVP/PVM based items for use.

    7. Where is your ideal Museum located (If you could have your museum

    A 17x17 inside Luna Walls.

    8. What is your favorite item that is currently in your collection?

    Phoenix Armor, but it's probably not the most valuable... I'm just an old school collector and I always wanted a suit when I was a noob.

    9. On a scale of 1-10 please rate your interest in rares collecting.
    1 being low &amp; 10 being high.

    7-9. It varies.

    C. Server Births
    D. Items Created through Glitches, GM/Dev Mishaps, etc

    Either B or C.

    2. If you know a rare has been duped or suspected of having been duped
    would it prevent you from purchasing it if the opportunity was
    available?

    Not Sure. Depends on Item.

    3. If a rare you desire became available, but was for sale by a known
    duper, would it prevent you from purchasing it?

    Yes. Even if was vine cords or RBG Sash, for 5m Each, I would not. I do not support duping and cheating.

    4. If you could have any 3 rares from any category, what would they be?

    Not really for sure. I would want RBG Sash. Would be neat. Next would be combat boots (Sonoma Issue). Then I really dont know.

    5. What motivates you to collect/invest in rares?

    Not really big in it right now, but for me would be to preserve shard Items/History. Next would be for public viewing. Too many rares get locked up in private homes never to be seen by people.

    A. PVP/PVM based items for use.
    B. Deco Items

    In trammel somewhere. Little to no spawn. Just quiet peaceful area.

    Dont got much of a collection. If had to say would be Wyrms Heart.

    1. What is if your Preferred Rare Type?
    A. Collectibles – Holiday or other wise
    B. Event Rare
    C. Server Births
    D. Items Created through Glitches, GM/Dev Mishaps, etc
    E. Other – Please Include a Brief 1-3 word Description

    2. If you know a rare has been duped or suspected of having been duped
    would it prevent you from purchasing it if the opportunity was
    available?
    <ul>[*]So few items in game are free from the taint of duping that one must go forward with the assumption that absolutely every single item that has ever been in the game has been duped. Thusly, unless I can verify that the exact, specific item I am interested in purchasing is a duped item (or at least if the specific item comes with a very healthy dose of doubt about whether or not it belies a dubious nature), then I will buy whatever it is.[/list]
    3. If a rare you desire became available, but was for sale by a known
    duper, would it prevent you from purchasing it?

    <ul>[*]Now this would definitely prevent me from buying it.[/list]
    4. If you could have any 3 rares from any category, what would they be?
    1. Any named wine/liquor/beer/etc bottles, EM event, seer, or otherwise, as well as any connected wine bottles, named or otherwise.
    2. A set of the two two-story talking statuettes, a la Covetous dungeon.
    3. A E/W standard open book with the name "A Treatise On Alchemy". I only ever see these in the smaller, square-book version.
    5. What motivates you to collect/invest in rares?
    <ul>[*]Personally, I only collect rares, I don't invest. If I buy a good rare item, I plan on owning that rare item until the servers are shut down. Now as to the why: I like decorating my house with awesome stuff for people to look at. I also occasionally get stuff to showcase server/game history.[/list]
    6. Which Category do you feel describes your preferred item type?
    A. PVP/PVM based items for use.
    B. Deco Items
    C. Wearable items for Aesthetic purposes

    7. Where is your ideal Museum located (If you could have your museum
    located in any one spot, where would it be?)
    <ul>[*]Serpent's Hold, but the biggest plot on the whole island is 11x14, so not sure how well that would work out.[/list]
    8. What is your favorite item that is currently in your collection?
    <ul>[*]An old seer item from Atlantic: "A Bottle Of Special SCT One Year Anniversary Reserve Vintage"[/list]
    9. On a scale of 1-10 please rate your interest in rares collecting.
    1 being low &amp; 10 being high.
    <ul>[*]7.5[/list]
    10. How does this compare to when you began collecting rares? Are you more

    2. If you know a rare has been duped or suspected of having been duped
    would it prevent you from purchasing it if the opportunity was
    available?
    <font color="blue">No, not if it was indistinguishable from the original and I liked the item for its characteristics other than its rarity. If there's no way to tell the difference between the original and a dupe, and it's a cool item, why not buy it?</font>

    3. If a rare you desire became available, but was for sale by a known
    duper, would it prevent you from purchasing it?
    <font color="blue">Probably, unless I couldn't buy it elsewhere and I really wanted it.</font>

    <font color="blue">1. Cloak of Shadows

    7. Where is your ideal Museum located (If you could have your museum

    <font color="blue">Great Lakes, Luna, just north of the east road nearest the moongate in the inner ring. I'm pretty sure an 18x18 fits there. I could have had it, too, and I am STILL kicking myself for it. I was one of the lucky few who pre-ordered AoS directly from Origin when it was released and got it a day before the other stores got it. I wasn't a beta tester, so all I knew about Malas was what I had seen from the map screenshots on the UO site. I logged in, went to the Luna moongate, and ran through Luna in my search for the empty space outside of the Luna walls. I thought, "Wow, that's weird, having all that empty space between the shops and the city's walls." It didn't even OCCUR to me to try to place a house there. DAMN IT! [​IMG] [​IMG] </font>

    Depends, for my personal collection: yes. But that doesn't take away I might purchase it if the seller or item is somewhat dubious, for trading purposes or temporary deco.

    3. If a rare you desire became available, but was for sale by a known

    I don't judge people by their reputation. I judge by what I see.

    Hard one, I've always liked the 2 story statue, until they were mass duped/bugged.
    An original one (talking) I would like.

    Master of the Word sash. Great quests, and usually the owners weren't the l33t types.

    5. What motivates you to collect/invest in rares?
    It allows you to be different in the game. Everyone can get some arties and kill some dragons and get some gold. There is only 1-10 people with certain items.

    6. Which Category do you feel describes your preferred item type?
    C. Wearable items for Aesthetic purposes

    I've always liked to show off occasionally. Just like RL [​IMG].

    7. Where is your ideal Museum located (If you could have your museum
    located in any one spot, where would it be?)

    I guess somewhere accessible.

    8. What is your favorite item that is currently in your collection?

    Well, it's my wedding collection. Not just an individual piece, but all the wedding invites, rings etc. All unique items, used for an unique occasion. Your super Vine Cord sandals are nice, but they are 100x more common than this ring, created by a GM (by the request of a Counselor).

    9. On a scale of 1-10 please rate your interest in rares collecting.
    1 being low &amp; 10 being high.
    10. I spend very little time doing other things.

    10. How does this compare to when you began collecting rares? Are you more
    or less interested? Please Chose one of the phrases below.
    About the Same

    I started off small. Reselling small items, gradually moving on to nicer items. But the day I found rares, was the day I found out I am better at trading than at killing dragons or trying to be cool in PvP.
    I'm at the point where I've owned 90%+ of all different rares at one point or another, so you get a bit more picky. My interest is the same, just a lot more specialised.
