[Discussion] Reading these recent posts a great idea just came to me

    As I am full of great ideas here is another one of those that could be sticked.
    Its called Unique Item Tracking Guide: All these recent posts said this is dupped that is dupped etc etc.. well I say there are a lot more unique items out there in the hands of "Rare Protectors". So I say lets make a post and each time an unqiue is sold or traded off, if we can track it. And for those of you who post and we think its not unique anymore other posters can jump in and correct it. So if you think you've got uniques please post here.

    Lets start with

    Barry Trotter:
    1. Embrace the Abyss
    2. Terathian Silk Shirt
    3. Ithlesis Sting

    I'll up date this list if Tomas agrees to stick it.

    Sure, I can sticky it. Maybe you can make another thread with a more descriptive and shorter title?

    I guess we should begin by defining exactly what we're looking for ~~ dictionary.com says:

    u·nique Audio Help /yuˈnik/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[yoo-neek] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
    –adjective
    1. existing as the only one or as the sole example; single; solitary in type or characteristics: a unique copy of an ancient manuscript.
    2. having no like or equal; unparalleled; incomparable: Bach was unique in his handling of counterpoint.
    3. limited in occurrence to a given class, situation, or area: a species unique to Australia.
    4. limited to a single outcome or result; without alternative possibilities: Certain types of problems have unique solutions.
    5. not typical; unusual: She has a very unique smile.
    –noun
    6. the embodiment of unique characteristics; the only specimen of a given kind: The unique is also the improbable.

    for many items, 'unique' fits, because there was one, and only one, created.... but there are other items which could also be considered due to collectors absolutely certain of the number originally created ... the problem with uh..... call them 'multiple uniques'? :lol: is that we may have completely lost track of where they have all ended up

    so, why not start with this decision..... is the list to be limited to only single item rares?

    That was what I was wondering Devil, cause apparently you and myself own the large tattered painting. According to the rare's list only 2 exist, so atleast we know who owns them.

    Either there are 3 or it got duped? Who knows? Without an item being unique, it's hard to say how many of them are really out there and legit.

    so already we're finding out that either

    the list is inaccurate

    items that were thought to not have been duped (at least this one, for me) were, in fact, duped
