[Discussion] Royal guard survival knife for 50mil??

Discussion in 'UO Rares Collector' started by Starla, Jul 25, 2008.

    I was running around Atlantic Luna and noticed a Royal guard survival knife for 50mil only (49999999 to be exact)... that's the most ridiculous drop in value of a once sought after item I have seen so far.

    Eh thats hardly a reason for its current price. It has a lot of things going for it:
    1) Royal tag
    2) Event item that can be equipped and 1 handed
    3) Potential mods that can be useful in pvp in future depending on changes
    4) Luck

    So, a non-duped item like this would never be worth 50M in todays market. It would easily go for more than 300-400M. However, the only reason it sells for what it does is because it has been mass duped.

    Those are rental vendors. Nabin is a trusting sort of guy. He also takes care of problem vendors if notified (feel free, I don't tattle). Unfortunately, as we all know, this takes a week due to game mechanics.

    Its a pity I never saw or heard of your collection despite being from same shards. Must have been a super private collection.

    Had no reason to make it a huge public place.
