    Wouldn't that be $832? 8 hours times $8 = $64 per day times 13 = $832.

    Mith said he got a 2nd in Uhall, you could always try to get him to sell it to you.

    Oh minus lunch hours 1 hour per day... Ballpark...

    I should have bought it from mith at 2-3B...

    It's crazy, why make this item so bloody hard to get that even if you grind and still don't get it.

    Ron is the owner of Stratics, not UO hehe. As far as I know, he doesn't even play UO.

    You really should get some sort of trophy for how many quests you do though. Like "A trophy signifying that JDGTR has completed 1,000 trade quests" or whatever they would name it.

    I agree with the notification of how many quests you completed. Would also be a very simple way to curb exploitation and scripting. I like that this is so hard to get, and I personally would buy one if someone ever gets one for sale.

    Truly, I'd rather buy. I paid more wages than how much a veil would cost.

    I pay my slave (18 year old student), $8 bucks an hour, lunch included, to play game for this winter holidays.

    Coming to office he can see our real hot colleague Vivi, whom he has a crush on.

    Thats not too shabby...

    I'ma keep a log of how bloody hard it is to get a veil. Why make it this hard to grind?

    It's not even grinding anymore. This drop rate forces people to script. Otherwise it's bugged.
