    This is very interesting. What are your thoughts on the value of the original ones? I know they don't really qualify as originals now since all of them were duped. But lets just call them more rare than the replicas.

    Well the originals will be POFable (equippables). I believe replica shrouds/boots/sashes have durability and are not PoFable. Values of PvP rare items like gladiators collar, market of which has been traditionally controlled by few "brokers", will come crashing down.

    best thing ever to happen to me! the only item i get screwed on is tattered mummy wrapping cause i own nothing else on that list, i'll get my wind spirit without having to spend 350m that i always wanted... dupers get screwed over, and i get a laugh out of people who spent cash for those duped items, especially the LT sash, i know a guy that paid $2000 for one a while back
     
  7. I'm indifferent. The entire list is composed of duped artifacts presumably aquired from the rares forum sticky list. Therefore EA chose a careful list of replicas. Not to completely trash the market but to target the highend dupers in a retaliation against duping. I do pitty the fool who paid out of pocket to aquire items of such circumstances but as they say a fool and his money are easily parted. Those of us who chose not to partake in buying highend duped items made the wisest decision and therefore the replicas have little impact against us. It is within EAs right to do as they please and if they feel a single duper can mass produce a rare and sell it for hundreds of mils, why can't they [EA] mass produce a legitiment replica artifact for the common player?

    So all in all, we reach an equilibrium. Rares are still rares but replicas are created to counteract the duping of the rares to prevent future exploiting. If theres little to no business potential for a duper our market will find better days.

    With the new Event Moderator program starting up, I don't have an issue with them retiring these old items. The duping has just been insane and there are probably people who have some of these still stashed. Hopefully they have fixed all the dupes and there won't be the same issue with all the nice new items that will be introduced.

    At least I hope there are nice new items.
     
  12. Well if they delete all the duped ones and replace them with replicas (somewhat like with vine cords but better in a sense and worse) then the originals will gain massive value for none are duped anymore, and the duped ones will be easily seen since they all have the tag... but they probly will not do this :| sadly :(

    Hrmmm :| i completely forgot what i was going to say here and it was almost worth being said :| i hate when that happens ...

    hehe i see GM robe wasn't up there muhahaa it hasn't been duped yet :p kidding...

    Yea my blue robe is safe still :D hehe still good spent gold :D

    Anyone who's played on a non-osi shard knows that GM/Counselor robes are *not* static to the body. They might not have a graphic once you take them off, but they are not stuck to your body like so many seem to think.
