    I have seen around these items which, since they say they are "Artifact rarity", I assume are drops or stealables. Where do they come from ? Is there like a full set possible of them ?

    I have a little alarm in my head which says, "Don't trust these items, they shouldn't exist."

    The stats and artifact rarity are from the Hat of the Magi.

    Is it possible that get these information not from looking at the item ingame but from a certain search site?

    If so, it is simply a bug in their site - use another search site and these will not be listed.

    They come from preview events for the new troll invasion story arc, which will happen after Virtuebane.

    Can say if not seen on a real shard in person, good old photo shop. Mods are that of the Hat of Magi. They had been lazy and not removed the blessed or artifact rarety.

    You folks really need to stop all this right now.

    I just blew coffee all over my monitor, and if I laugh much harder, bad things could happen.

    I imagine a reaction not unlike Andy in The Office when Jim stole Andy's cell phone after Andy made the new Rockin Robin Ring Tone, and Jim hid the phone in the ceiling, and Jim and Pam kept calling the number.

    Ditto, in-game pix, or I call BS!
    because they have mods that would Only exist on items that have a title instead of common name. isn't this right?

    He can't produce a screenshot as this info is being taken off of an illegal 3rd party website.

    As reluctant as I am to defend a known troll, the information isn't coming from there. I used the Hat of the Magi properties as search terms and came up with nothing but... Hats of the Magi (and Tal'keesh replicas :) ).

    It's one of the sites because someone else had mentioned the same thing. Not sure which one or what process you have to go through to get it to display on the page that way though.

    There's one site (of three I know of) that regularly produces errors like this.

    Very interesting. Guess we learned something new about popps in this thread. Tsk tsk popps.

    LOL, guess the ole hammer hit the nail on the ole head. Seeing
    as how Popps hasn't responded umteen times in this thread. And
    I think Flutter is right. Maybe now his posts and threads will be few and
    far in between.

    Is there an obligation to reply in Stratics' rules ?
    I did not notice any.

    I often get blamed that I drag threads beyond necessary so when I stop dragging a discussion I get yelled at just as well ? Go figure, sounds to me that whatever one does, it is never enough.......

    As in regards to posting about game issues, if I feel it necessary why shouldn't I ?

    Uhm, read carefully popps. He isn't "mad" as you say about not responding at all. Rather he sees your lack of defense as admittance to guilt at using those illegal 3rd party websites. Amazed you didn't catch that. Or maybe you did and chose to dance around the issue and hope they didn't notice. lol

    He's getting the information from a UO item search engine (which will remain nameless) that always messes up, and has random items that do no exist mixed up with stats/properties from any given item. So lets say if you were to search for an item, the engine sometimes returns random items that are not available, nor real, but will take on the stats of any in-game item...these 2 items that popps said have taken the properties of a Hat of the Magi.

    Simple and stupid, but dont trust everything you see from these types of websites...not that I would ever use them *cough*

    HOW ON EARTH IS IT POSSIBLE THAT SOMEONE THAT HAS BEEN ON STRATICS SINCE 2004 IS THIS ****ING CLUELESS?

    It's embarrassing.

    Wait... we aren't supposed to discuss third party sites/ apps but popps opened a thread asking about items he had seen in one??

    Wait... are you :coco:? the only way he will see those items is if he himself uses the said "illegal" 3rd party website. Just saying... but seems to me you are the one that's lack of defense in your intelligence. And if he indeed see those items in game why didnt he take a screenshot? Or is pushing the bottom on top right hand of the keyboard, open paint, right click and select "paste" too challenging to popps and your kind of people?

    I guess I missed where he said he had seen these items elsewhere on the net.
    How do you know he wasn't offered these items via icq/whatever in an attempt to scam him?
    How do you know maybe someone he knows didn't come to him and ask him because They thought they were about to be scammed?
    Least he came here and asked.
    It's not like he's a Rares dealer, how's he supposed to know?


    Simple, If it sounds too good to be true, Beware. It doesn't cost anything to meet up in game, put it in a trade window, get a screen grab. If they 'can't, it's a scam, then let your friends know a new scammer is on the prowl. Google is your friend also, search for the names, attribs there. So are the artie lists here on stratics, and probably Every fan site,

    since he won't share further details for whatever reason, guess we'll never know

    I think it's fairly conclusively been shown that these items do not in fact exist except as a bug on an illicit search site. Further discussion will serve no useful purpose.
