Gotta ask, how the heck did you get that
I am one lucky, lucky man. =D
Any chance you'd like to elaborate on that explanation as to the source of the items? Lest people assume less than legitimate means were used? Or question the authenticity of the item as a rare...
A Stoned Mariner W$R
Strange...items that were unable to be looted were looted.
Edit...was town crier that could not be looted. Carry on.
To answer: Yes, they are legitiment, and confirmed by EM. I do have the Mempo but it is not displayed on paperdoll (looks ugly), only the set was dropped, no weapon.
i resend my bid due to the event not having happened on chessy as of yet
These guards with the suits were killed by the EM or Mesanna during the event on all shards. They were meant to be looted. There are 5-6 guards per shard. That's potentially more than 50 suits out there. So think twice before bidding too much.
Ya this armor is not one of a kind, here's some i got on Baja a lil while ago.
wow ultimate power what is that other item in your bag?
These will also be available for a very limited amount of time on all shards, so do not pay a fortune for one.
The Asian shards had the events last night/ this morning.
Atlantic, GL, Baja had the event tonight.
Check with your Shard Em's for date and time.
Come heavily armed.
Ironic. I'll tell you one thing, I'm sure that it is not, and more so now, will be hard to get a complete set. View the screen shot and noticed only two pieces collected. Also, I noticed that it hasn't change people from making bids towards it.
I just went to check other shards; Europa doesn't have elite guards in the throne room - they are unarmed town criers!
So much for guarding the crystal!
Are these on display anywhere, I would like to see how it looks in the other client.
hopefully they haven't put the armor on because of the warm summer or lazyness.
so how do u get that crystal display?
After the event you will be able to click the display in the throne room and get 1
Whats also cool about this item is that you can lock something down on it and raise it so that it looks like its sitting on the pillow.
Just a side note there are two name variations of this case.
The full set listing in my post below sold for 100mil last night on Napa.
Do you have images available of the two or a link to where they are shown?
If you type in replica case on the search sites the second name should pop up. The names are...
Replica Of An Empty Mysterious Crystal Display
Replica Of The Mysterious Crystal (empty Case)
And here comes the scramble of people actually completing their set, or trying to sell full sets......lol
also selling cape and shoulders on europa 15 mill each other
Based on the drop #'s....it shouldnt be too difficult for people to complete a set. And a bunch of shards have yet to have their drop/event yet.
I have literally seen/read of almost a dozen complete suits for sale. From individual who looted entire suits on their own. Add this to the random pieces looted by others, and you have to assume there will be in excess of 20-25 suits min. Since the estimate of all shards combined is upwards of 50 suits worth of armor dropping. Full suit #'s will only grow over time as collectors assemble them. Although at the same time their #'s on the market overall will reduce because people won't be selling them once they enter peoples collections.
Matter of opinion....you have the problem that some people may have three pieces, where others do as well, and both are stubborn and don't want to sell. In addition, most people that finally get the full set are either stuffing it in their collection or selling it.....I was lucky and got the grand majority of 'em....and plan on keeping one legit, selling one and imbuing one.
I think it's interesting, and hope they end up changing the name...
The LS version was named "Replica of an Empty Mysterious Display", so three variations now.
Not so much a matter of opinion at all. Simple facts and arithmetic.
(X amount of shards)(Y amount of suits per shard) = total suits.
Broken or full sets, there will be at least 50ish sets in circulation.
Not sure why you are trying to play debate, but ok, let's think logically:
1. Yes, there are potentially 50 sets out there.
2. Of those 50 sets, some will have the complete set, and other pieces will be scattered among many players that loot the corpse.
3. It is a unique hue, eye candy, and a lot of people are interested....which makes the demand high (had approx. 10 PMs from when I posted to the next day)
4. If they happen to change the name....value will increase that much more.
With those facts, for those people that just have pieces....they may do the following:
1. Hold onto the pieces in attempt to finish
2. Trade for other pieces if they have duplicates with other players for missing pieces
3. Sell it to other players
4. Never complete set....thus taking it off the market for other people
For those who have the full set....they may do the following:
1. Hold it in collection
2. Sell it
For serious collectors....I doubt they will sell it if they have the full set, and if they have just pieces....more than likely they will try to search for 'em or buy the full sets. Some people were lucky to get the full sets....but if you didn't....it may not be as easy. Who knows....time will tell.
It's been a weekend.....let's see what happens. = )
No debate being made. And I have never commented on the value or the desirability.
Just making clear as others have in the post as well, for any potential buyers of these suits to be aware that there is a large quantity floating around. And more to come.
Also this speculation that "they might change the items name" is nothing more than a sales pitch. Smoke and mirrors to trump up the desirability of naive buyers. I don't know how appropriate that is???
I'm not the one who made it....Manticore did:
Well, everyone is aware of the quantity now. Let's see what happens.
This did go off on a tangent.....however, I am still selling this set on Atlantic. Feel free to offer.
Is the current price 100m?
I bit 150m.
I had dealings with you, and paid 300m.
I was cheated by you!!!!
you kill me and armor root!!!!
And taht's why u make sure the armor are insured and dont do deals in fel
This seller has a reputaion...you should have known better sorry for your loss
I want use send to bag.
but dont use it
Because I was in a hurry, insurance was not in time.
It was before the macro was united.
Welp, hopefully the Mods. will take note of this...and reconsider any spankings given while they are at it.
In the meantime, perhaps people will listen a bit more when I tell them not to participate in ANY dealings with this person. That being in game or on the boards.
well that sucks, semmerset check yer PM box
Yet you have no issues posting bids on his items? I don't understand the logic here...at all.
yes i did bid on the item. i would not have done a transaction without a broker such as DVI. i have learned my lesson in the past of the importence of useing a broker to make sure the trade is safe. but i understand where you are going i will never make a bid or deal with this person as i think no one should deal with this person. and i do feel ashamed that i had made an offer i was cought in the moment looking at what i thought was a one of a kind item that matched my wedding dress color
This must have happened in fel....sorry for your loss but come on.
Well, as long as people continue to have dealings with this person (or any of his alts) and the moderators continue to allow him...this type of behavior will continue.
Hi there Restroom Cowboy,
well it is perfectly legal to kill people and steal items in UO.
We all know that you do not like OP,but it is not his fault that people are acting stupidly.
This is not about who I do or do not like, this is only about trying to help people avoid being taken for a loss whenever possible. Unfortunately some people choose to take things lightly instead of taking the time to listen to good advice.
Sometimes you cannot protect a player from thier own silly actions. I've read this thread with great interest as I am an owner of one of these suits and would like to sell it if the price is right. For a player to arrive in Fel and hand over 300mil for a non insured item you have to conclude there is a lack of forsight happening. I am not saying the buyer is dumb but the action was silly and, in hindsight, clearly preventable.
I think it would be wise for members of the rare community to read the thieves thread every couple weeks to refresh themselves of just what other players might do. There was a very lively posting a while back which chronicled a player, his fel vendor and the clients who lost thier purchase.
Buyer beware, sorry for the loss but sometimes you have to remember it is fel where bad things happen.
According to the Stratics RoC;
One could clearly argue that the poster has no intent of *building the community* and in addition is only interested in taking advantage of it. Stratics is by proxy supporting their actions by not following up on their own policy by putting up a permanent ban for the activity. (BTW, I seem to recall one person was banned for *supposed* illicit activity. In this case there were several incidents pointing out activities which were even more harmful to the community and its members.)
As far as the player who was affected by not taking proper precaution, I will agree the choice of location was not the best venue to make a trade. Unfortunately people sometimes have to learn the hard way and are too trusting (see Pacific rares fest for example) of people known to make others miserable. However, that is not an excuse for extending the privaledge of posting to people with no other interests than to grief.
Now, I am not the poster child for perfect posting. However I will reiterate that my interests here are only to *help* this community in whatever way I can.
