Spined Leather????????????

Discussion in 'UHall' started by The Markness, Aug 24, 2009.

    The Markness Guest

    Where in Britannia can I sell spined leather? I have been getting some off of mobs like dire wolves, lizardmen, etc., but nobody will buy them!

    If I can't sell them to an NPC, then please let me know, I'm troubled by this.:wall:

    Did you try the provisioner or the tanner?
     
  3. The Markness

    The Markness Guest

    Well I haven't tried the Provisioner, but the tanner DEFINITELY won't buy them.

    I'll be posting the results here in just a minute.

    Well always try the provisioner, that person usually buys everything.
     
  5. The Markness

    The Markness Guest

    Nope. Provisioner didn't work either.
     
  6. The Markness

    The Markness Guest

    I'd like to think that I can sell these to an NPC, because my tailoring skill isn't high enough to use them in any fashion, and the mobs that drop them are plentiful enough that I don't need to take up space hoarding them. If this isn't true, it would seem that UO is flawed in this context.

    Have you considered setting up a vendor and selling the leather to other players?

    There's quite a demand for colored leather on most shards.

    Since hides and cut leather stack, it won't take up much space. If you keep it all, you'll be glad you have it when your tailoring skill is high enough to use it with Runic Kits.

    Cobblers will purchase them. :)

    Well, no I didn't think of that.:dunce:I'm still kinda new to this game, so I'm not sure how to set up a vendor yet, but if someone were to walk me through it...:D

    Spined is good for filling bods.

    Lol, not the one I tried selling to.

    Guess I'll have to set up a vendor.

    I'll have to keep that in mind, thx.

    Cobblers and Tanners will purchase all leathers but will pay less than another player.

    Much better to save or sell to a player.

    I haven't tried finding an NPC to buy Spined leather, but one thing you could do to get rid of it is through the Britain Library Community Collection. I know you only get 5 points per piece, but you would only need to turn in a measley 20,000 pieces to get a nice sash! Otherwise, if you're on Cats I'll buy them off you... :)

    Hmm, do you need to cut the leather before selling it?

    If that's the case them perhaps Markness just needs to cut it :D

    For the record I played this for about a year back in 97, but stopped after a friend from high school sabotaged my account after my little brother gave him the password...I've just recently picked it back up, and HOOBOY there have been some changes!

    Have you tried putting it in your main bag and not a bag within? (no idea if it matters)

    Hmm, must be stingy tanners.

    Best bet now is to just sell to players.

    Welcome to UO, in the old days you could get 500-1000 of the leathers and try to spam them at the bank. This can work today, but its harder now. You can try online though.

    The cobbler in New Haven will accept it (it will look like regular leather in the trade window but if you mouse over it, it shows as spined leather). However, the NPC will only buy at 2gp per piece, the same as regular leather and not really worth the time and effort.

    I would simply save it, piled up in a corner of your bank box or in box in your house. Eventually either make a tailor or sell it to another player (most people buy only in quantities of 1000+ though).

    My first death was to a cat. Right near the bank of Minoc. My bones were promptly picked clean by the vultures.

    OP, Yup things have changed. I have seen that the vendors on LS dont buy colored leather when I have tried it.

    If you think you may do Bods in the future then i'd advise you to keep every scrap of leather you get.

    You sell un-cut leather to furtraders. You sell cut leather to tanners.

    Which shard is it on? I know there was a guy posting in the trade forums paying a crazy amount for coloured leather on certain shards..

    If you're having to cut up leather you should look into getting a Butcher's War Cleaver. You don't have to have it equipped to use it.

    Changes ... uh, gee ya THINK! <chuckle>

    Welcome back to the fray! If ye cannot sell to NPCs at all, you might wish to try your shard forum and sell to a bodrunner-tailor or something. That's how I financed my house when I returned 5 years ago.

    There is always turning it in to the library for the tallies. Even without the owned by noone they can be your fastest sale. But I have to go with all the others.........takes one slot Keep It.

    Well, I lurked in the forums a bit around here, and then ran some errands. You guys seem to look down on people like me(and you prolly will after I tell you this, sry:( )But I'm currently playing on a free shard.

    I don't look down on people who play free shards, but you do nothing to support the game. However I know what it's like to be broke, it sucks.

    You will run into a lot of issues that cannot be resolved by people here because of it -free shards are not exact copies, which is probably why you can't sell your leather to the tanners or furtraders.

    The advice to save it is good. It takes up one slot and is something you can gather over time for yourself or you can try to sell it at the bank when you get 1k to stick in a commodity deed (5 gps from NPC bankers). I get 40k per 1k spined on my shard, but I have no clue how the free shard economies work.

    'currently playing on [name removed] which is'...'in the future I'm on [name removed]. I hope I didn't offend...'

    Should I have not put the name of the shard in my post? I'll erase it if I have to, I don't want to get in trouble.

    Simply put, it's against the rules to mention freeshards by name or address here.

    BTW, The legal shards are getting a major expansion in 2 weeks, so consider trying them out then.

    I just went to Minoc and 2 people I tried to sell spined leather to were the tanner and the cobbler. Both were willing to buy it. However if you come after someone else sells a large quanity of leather, your sale my not go thru. You may get an" I can no longer purchase.... try some other adventurers" message. At which point you can recall to other cities or sell your leather to other players.

    Not at all :D

    Although I only play OSI (now EA/Mythic/Bioware) shards, I'm actually very pleased that there are alot of player-run shards out there (be it free or not).

    This shows that the game does indeed have alot of fans and players. Meaning there's a good potential to draw these players back into the fold of EA shards. Like lower fees etc etc.

    Something I am impressed with is that EA is big enough about it and I'd not heard of them trying to shut down the player run shards unlike other companies.

    Now still, Stratics being a prominent fansite for EA's UO, it will look bad if the mods do not moderate posts that promotes their unlicensed competitors or even mention player-run shards by name. Hence the rules. Same rules apply for illegal 3rd party apps etc.



    As to your issue of not being to sell your spined leather to vendors, if you are trying to do so on a player-run shard, highlight the issue to the folks that run that shard, they should be able to fix it quickly or advise you on th ereason why this is being done.

    Also, note that all the player-run shards have their own forums that may be more helpful regarding your issue. Each player-run shard have their own different rulesets and features (tip: google "<the shard name> +forum") :D

    Well I guess that explains why you couldn't sell your leather to the NPC :p
    Naturally player-run shards differ from EA run shards in even the littlest of ways.

    Could have sworn I posted this earlier...did I mention a bad thing or did I simply forget to hit submit? lol

    You may also consider stocking that leather as it might be usefull later for training tailoring at higher level

    Wow, I really didn't expect to generate this much response on such a simple(yeah, right)question. Thank you everyone for the help, this makes me want to stay here and learn everything I can from all you experienced players. I have much respect for the hard work and time dedicated to developing these characters, so again thanks for all the help, and I'm sure I'll have another question down the line.
