    I found a vendor on Atlantic & on Lake Superior that had stacks of 127 Silver Coins for what seemed like a outrageous amount.

    Why would someone sell stacks of 127 coins and what is causing the Silver rate to jump?

    Or have I just been away to long to know what's going on?

    I've seen a vendor like that on Great Lakes...

    ... piles and piles of 127 silver coins for 225k. Can't figure out why either.

    are we talking like faction silver coins or are we talking the silver soverigns from the birt sewer rats for a few years back silver?

    cause if its faction silver then a pile of 127 wouldnt be that strange to see.

    i do know that if you steal gold from a pack mule sometimes you get a glitch one that will be 1 gold coin but have the graphic of a pile and when you mouse over it it will say 65,000 gold.

    so maybe its the same glitch.
    if its a pile and only 1 silver that would be it i guess.

    Seems the merchant for whatever reason decided that 1 silver coin was worth 1771.6535433 gold pieces ...

    That a standard conversion? ;-)

    Speaking of randomness...in signed single byte notation, 127 is the max positive number you can have. (ie binary: 01111111)


    128 makes it a negative number.
    (ie binary: 10000000)


    Not saying that there's any significance here...Someone buy it before server goes down, see what it does :D

    here's probably where he got that number ...i think .... :

    225,000/127 = 1771.6535433
    1771+6+5+3+5+4+3+3= 1800

    took 8 numbers to add to 1800 ... so 1800/8=225

    1+2+7=10

    took 3 numbers to get ten, so of course multiply the 225 by 10 three times ...

    225*10=2,250*10=22,500*10=225,000

    Nooooow i see where he got his silver pile quantity ... it is so clear now ...
