    As a curiosity I've had over the past few years, I've always wondered why the Two Story Statue had never been made into an obtainable item in game. Most of the highly duped items had been made into replicas, save for the two story statue graphic.

    I remember seeing a bag of a few dozen four years back or so, so it was obviously an item that had been manufactured on a fairly large scale.

    Knowing that, it is also a very popular and attractive item for players to own, and I definitely would love to see the graphic, obviously altered in name or color, without the ability to speak, to preserve some of the rareness of the originals.

    Playing around with different hues, the statues look quite good using standard ore colors, and would be interesting additions to the BOD system, peerless system, champ system, or one of the many other established systems in UO.

    I can think of a few other graphics that would also fit into this category, but the two story statue is by far the most desired one I've seen to date.

    There is a two story statue obtainable through heritage tokens. It isn't the same one that you are speaking of and it doesn't talk, but it is out there.
     
  9. I agree. This item has been duped often and appears and several sites for rl money and is always in stock. This item should be added in as a replica.

    Are you all sure that any duped items weren't deleted?

    I think such rare items like this give UO a very special aspect. I'd much rather keep that, if possible. But I don't know the facts here.

    Those and scaffolds should be brought back in spring cleaning rewards.

    This isn't particularly rare as it was duped so heavily, along the lines of the open books.

    Displaying or having possession of them was a bannable offense for quite some time. Much like the empty jars (initially), I believe the only way of obtaining them was through using UO Extreme (long defunct).

    I don't know anything about the dungeon version of the statue, but the ones in front of the moonglow bank were a source for quite a while. Fel-side, you should see 2 statues on top of each other at each corner - unless they got around to correcting it. Trammel should only have one.

    It was the usual, one was locked down properly - the other wasn't. The problem was actually picking it up due to the fencing.


    There really isn't much that is truely rare anymore, everything should be craftable in some form.

    I like the idea. Course this is why I included 2 of those statues in my Banner Request.

    I like the idea of the scaffold as well...

    I'd also like to see the two "Elven" banners included in the Spring Clean too.

    I would LOVE to get some of those.

    I saw them on a Banner in Magincia on I think Atlantic on the Beach.
     
  18. Scaffolds would be a good idea to add as well.

    How rosy of a subject, for someone who's been missing for so long.

    Are you honestly pointing towards UO dev teams lack of integrity ?

    Or its just a personnal vendetta and you are hoping that someone will bite on the lure ? :coco:

    Edit :

    ahem... okay... nice... um, roleplaying huh ?

    *reedit*

    wow okay... I think that was the tip of the iceberg ?

    really ?

    2 story statue i can understand, but scaffolds should not be made obtainable, they arent duped as much as the statues, they hardly ever go for sale and are still pretty rare

    Personally, I think that any items that were created/duped like that (or any other method) should be removed, reguardless of how long it has been (ie- vine cord sandles).

    The 2 story statue fiasco is weird...they still hold high gold value and on the search engines high dollar value yet its common knowledge they were duped to the hilt!!.....im guessing if some mega millionaire even tried buying each 2 story statue form the search sites...a new one would keep coming for sale as soon as he had bought the last!!!! they must have chests full of em yet try not to flood the market by drip feeding them into it.

    Hit the dupers hard and stop this endless revenue of real cash going into there pockets by making them a high reward in the new spring clean!!!

    Lets take every rare and make it not rare. Then 5 people can be happy about their two story statues and hundreds of people will not care about them anymore.

    I still like my mad scientist labs. I put one in just about every house I own.
    Same could be said of stone thrones and tables.

    Truth be told I only have one plot where I could put these on display.

    So if u want a 2 story statue or scafold then u have to buy it ...fully knowing its a 95% chance its a dupe anyways....and will have to pay real money or part with 100-200 millo for what is a very nice but very duped item!!!!

    I say make em a spring clean reward....high level one,,,,.and NO we dont have to make every rare not rare....but we can make the known heavily duped items nice rewards for people to work for in the game we pay to play!!!!
