    Im gonna try this again.

    Two things -the last time a thread about this item came up - it was stealth deleted. I repeat - i responded and the thread was gone the next day as was my post out of my post history. I repeat - deleted - not locked.

    I see very few of these around as well.

    The knowledgebase states

    http://support.ea.com/cgi-bin/ea.cf...2hfdGV4dD1zaWdpbCBpdGVtcw**&p_li=&p_topview=1

    QUESTION
    Are purple-hued sigil items illegal?
    Answer
    Faction sigil purple items are legal to buy, sell and own. This decision was made simply because these items can be made without the use of an exploit. Because no exploit is involved there is no need to action these items.

    Now that said...

    Delete the last thread about this?
    Why?
    Are we missing something Stratics People?

    Here's the FAQ - care to point out why a post about the existance and / or legality of the above item would have been deleted in light of the fact that EA declares these items to be legal to trade and own? Read my above post.

    well I was the original poster about this item in question.... the post was removed because I had a link to another web page which was against the rules...

    Petra Fyde states:
    I was obliged to remove your thread regarding umbra robes since the link you posted in it breaks our rule on selling virtual items for states cash.

    So the robes are still a mystery....but someone knows something...
     
  6. As far as this thread goes, you might want to also pay particular attention to letter I in the ROC.

    oki, I'm fine with Bman quoting me, and I'm fine with this discussion.

    If Bman had been online when the problem was brought to my attention I'd have asked him to edit his post, removing the link so that the rest of his post, and resulting thread, could stay. Since he wasn't, and I had no way of knowing how many hours, days, or weeks it would be till his return, I did the only other thing I could, removed the thread.

    The sigil shroud has been deleted in the not so distant past by GMs. However, lately they are not being deleted for whatever reasons. There are no real guarantees though as you tend to get conflicting information from GMs (if any).

    AFAIK, You were never able to create a sigil shroud without using a bug.
