    upload_2015-8-4_20-15-29.png This is something I am quite intrigued about, 9 piece vat of skulls set. Does anybody have information on where this comes from and perhaps give me an estimated value.

    I quite like it but if it is something of extremely high value then I might listen to offers.

    I know there is a multiple piece vat and pile of skulls that you get from the primeval lich spawn. I havent ever heard of a Skull Vat combination thing if thats what your saying that is. Maybe someone knows.

    a "Vat" and a "Pile of Skulls" are two different collections. There are many players who have used those items to make a decoration that looks like a vat with bones in it

    According this this post
    http://stratics.com/threads/pile-of-skulls.240151/

    The old server birth skulls were 5 stones, the spawn ones are 2...so the ones you have are from the spawn I would assume.

    I have a guildie who has the complete set from the spawn...you can either set it up as the vat or with the skulls inside it as it is at the spawn.

    I'm not a rares person lol so I don't know if the vat was available any other time.

    I think all of that particular piece has the "purple".... it actually is supposed to be grapes. As I recall when fully assembled it is covered up by the water of the other pieces. Prim Lich vat pieces are all 2 stones.

    Yea I think thats just the vat thing. I think it still sells for a little bit tho. Good Luck. Are these items on ATL? I know the ones I never got from you were on another shard. Usually its best if they items aren't on ATL to post that in the original post....most people will just assume they are on Atlantic like I did. Just a word of advice.

    Well I didn't start the thread as a selling thread just a request for info.

    I'm still not 100% on what this is or if it is some sort of variation of the vat, perhaps a rare version of it. I also found an EM item with a punctuation mistake, an extra space in the description so I think that is what these are.

    I have several of these vats. The devs made it a little confusing. The bottom half uses the vat images from Buc's Den, whiel the top half uses the vat images from the winery next to Empath Abbey. Those are the only spawning pieces, and the center, either variety, does not spawn. You can only assemble what Loriel posted as an image. The pile of skulls is a different colleciton of items, and there are small edge pieces in addition to the 3 shown above; total if I remember correctly of 8 items in that set.

    That is what I was wondering.... there is such a thing as a water tile correct ? Maybe they fit into that.

    @DJAd im not exactly sure on the water. it has curved edges, only way i can think of is placing the vat, raising it a few tiles, adding in house custumization water tiles, then lowering the vat to below floor level (vat/water would have to be on second floor, pull tab with deco tool to lower slighly below second floor level while standing on first floor)

    DJAd You can customize your house and put 3 water tiles on the ground where the vat will be and then put the vat around the water tiles u put on the ground. I did that at one of my other house. :)
