Who Is the Richest Player of all Sosaria?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Gladius, Jul 27, 2009.

    Who holds the most treasures?

    [​IMG]

    After two years of playing UO so far my financial status in the game is as follows:

    Number of Account Active: 1
    Real Estate: a Castle
    Loot/Hoarded Items/Rares: Below 30M GP
    Gold in the Bank: Below 50M GP

    In all intent purposes I am a happy yet very poor man in the game :D
    Out of curiosity in order to set a ballpark bench mark on how much one should normally be having in terms of wealth in the game. May we be graciously shown a goal we can all hope to achieve as well?

    In this regard can some of the 3-5 year veterans up give us a peek on just how much one should be worth after the number of years played more or less?

    For Instance:

    2 years of play (My example)
    3 years of play (Millionaires Club)
    4 years of play (Billionaires Club)
    5 years of play (Super King Solomon's Tribe)

    No problem for fella's like me but how do the Filthy Rich manage their resources? More so in terms of distribution,storage,number of accounts,etc.
    Legitimate means only please hehe.

    In a former shard I was playing I saw folks who have invested in numerous accounts to build homes and castles.

    Anyways I don't have a clue hope you could share your experience (ballpark calculations ok) TIA!

    Oh and if you haven't earned that much gold even after playing after so long (over 5 years) it would also be nice to share your stature.

    Like Phaen, I'm a complete failure at collecting.

    6 years, flat broke after 4 (I had quit and given away all my belongings)... so after 2 years of earning gold, I just broke 10 mil on my archer, I have about 3 on my tamer and the rest have less than 1 million each.

    I have a small house (not even max storage) in a roleplayer village.

    Wait, you own a castle and have below 50mil in the bank and consider yourself poor in-game???

    After like 7 years I currently have around 12 mil and own an 18x18.

    What, exactly, qualifies as wealthy in game? I have always wondered this.

    Whatever it is, I'm certain I'm not it. 5 years in-game, one 18x18, about 12mil across all accounts, likely 20 mil if I reopened my vendor house and moved some rares inventory.

    My other two accounts each hold a small house for storage, and their combined bank balance is probably about the same as my bank acount in RL; in other words, not alot.


    My financial goals are tyically based on what items I want in-game that I don't feel like fighting for. Currently, I want a 120 magery scroll and a crimson cincture. And since I play atlantic, those are gonna take awhile, lol.

    GREAT discussion topic tho=)

  9. My armor is more than my bank .... my best account: about 10kk -.-

    I stopped playing UO and suddenly I feel richer than when I could move my mouse over my precious virtual belongings.

    It's not because of the extra $$$ in my pocket..... It's because I no longer feel I'm being milked, to put it as politely as possible. And that is a rich feeling I hadn't felt for years.

    I have played for roughly 10 years, give or take here and there.

    Last time i "appraised" my account, i had about 300mil in items, but right now i'd say i have closer to 350 mil in items, mostly in pvp gear for several different chars and templates. A little of it is rares and the like. In gold, i have about 40mil spread throughout my account, and if i ever need some for a big purchase, i have plenty of things i can sell that i will never use again, from rares to resources. Most of what i have i dunno what to even do with, all i ever do is login to pvp, so about all i buy is occasionally new gear or regs for potions.

    I have been playing since the beginning but I am not what I consider rich. I am a hoarder so I rarely sell any of my items.
    I do own one of the castles in Malas which if I sold would make me a very rich person. I also have a few other 18 x 18's around the lands.
    When I started with 100 gold I would never dream of having anything over 10 million in gold. I felt rich if I owned a few small houses and could help others buy houses.
    Things have sure changed in all the years that I have been playing.

    Heh, I thought that what I had wasn't very impressive, but after reading this post, who knows.

    Anyway, Been playing non-stop since Sept 1997..I have 6 accounts;
    1 Keep, 2 Towers, 2 18x18's, in Fel and an old Marble in Tram.

    Minimum 100 Mill Gold per account.

    Item value just doesn't count anymore now that Styg Abyss is comming out and items and weapons will be worthless. But if you want to include them, I have 6 fully built PvP suits that each cost at least 300 Mill to build about 4 years ago. Countless 120 powerscrolls and other items like a blessed Fortified Surpassingly Accurate Katana of Vanquishing from clean up Britania, which is now complete dog doo.

    The armor on our 27 chars is worth billions on this market...

    I honestly don't think our worth could be accurately calculated.

    However, I would imagine there are people that have 5 times as much as we have.

    Sometimes I'll make a bow that would sell for over 100 million, but I keep it. I only had one vendor in over 11 years, and I never sold anything of value. We have 1 keep, & 3 max storage houses.

    I mean when you start talking about what are singing balls worth?

    What are complete sets of necro regs worth?

    What are complete sets of the bells and statues with all the rare ones worth?

    On and On

    Just from this event we have 20 cloaks & 1409 arties so far, 7 mempos.

    We never even used UOA. For uo purists that don't macro unattended or cheat, we have so much stuff here there is no way to calculate it.

    Yes, I so agree the vendor guys have the most gold.

    But real value is more than gold.

    My wife is always telling me I should have a bunch of vendors, but I just basically won't pay the insane vendor fees to UO.

    Plus, and here's the most important thing. In the old days 2 valorite hammers would drop per shard, per year. Something like that.

    Now, there is over 1000 pieces of valorite armor in Luna alone, and many 1000s on characters.

    You just KNOW they are cheating. I mean how in the world could you acquire that many val hammers legit, they only make 15 items per hammer. It's pretty easy to spot them too, isn't it? Their names are on the stuff they make.

    You do know that a "Valorite ..." item is crafted with valorite ingots (or enhanced with them), and not necessarily crafted with a valorite runic hammer, right? ;)

    I would say that I'm one of the richest players in UO. I only have 2 accounts, but after almost 12 years in this game... I have things that you just can't obtain anymore unless you had been here from the start.

    I have fully developed characters on both Siege and Atlantic. Multiple houses on both shards. I actually have the ability to set up shop with my 2nd account on any shard I want. *shrugs* I've just never wanted to. Between my 2 accounts, I have every playable character type you can think of on Atlantic. There isn't much in this game that I can't (or haven't) already done. I have a few rares of sentimental value, but really... that kind of stuff is worthless.

    Having the ability to experience anything and everything this game could offer me is what really holds value to me. This is a great game and when I log in... I log in to play it.

    Anyone out there who has what I have is in my opinion as rich as you can get.

    :D

    Why will items be obsolete after SA?

    Do they revert everyones account and remove all of their items?

    unless they do that items and armor will still be worth somethin..

    but if they make us have to play in 3d i dont care cuz im not playing anyway

    Pretty sure the thinking behind this sentiment is something to the effect of: imbuing will let us create "custom" items; custom items will be superior to pre-imbuing items since we can pick the mods we want on them; old items will lose their value. I'm not in the SA beta, so I don't know, but I'd guess that it probably won't be quite that straightforward.

    Begin in UO since 1998, have 6 or 7 accounts maybe. I have make a few billions, 5 or 6 and i bough 1B at Alcestis for my comeback...

    So i have win alot of gold when i sold a few very important rare, Lt sash at ****** "the red one"+500m and a fire rubblei have bough on ebay for 500usd resell for 1200usd "just the Lt", and the vine coord sandals bough on ebay for 200usd resell for 700usd at ******** .

    I have made maybe, 4000 or 5000usd profit when is legal on ebay, and spend 1500 euros to items, accounts and gold...
    Same thing for Anarchy-online on RK1, 3000 euros of profit, but now Funcom is a killer of ebayer ;)

    Just for say, you can win alot of money if you have the time. Now for me, i have a good job in the archeology of the human préhistoria -600000 at -140000 years bc "**** erectus.



    Now i play just for my pleasure ;) Is not a false story, just my little story...

    ps : i don't have the shame of this "Je suis comme je suis" Arnaud de Kerak templar of Jérusalem.

    Been playing off and on since '97 on my 1 account. The most I've ever had at once was about 12 million, mostly though stuff scavenged from IDOCs, and maybe 30-40 million in items/resources. I ended up spending almost all of my gold on a 120 magery and a 120 fencing scrolls. I managed to get a couple of those luck mempos from the Shadowlord event so if I am able sell one for a few million, I will probably spend it right away on some other 120 scroll(s). That's all I really look for nowadays anyway.

    Just under 6 year vet, Total amount of money in bank on all 5 of my chars? Less than 1 million.

    Worth of items horded? There's a lot of stuff... I never went around and valued it but probably not too much in today's economy, Maybe it is, maybe I have an amazing rare hidden somewhere in my house, found a guild deed in a random bag once... didn't even know I had one. My house is like Mary Poppen's hand bag. You never know what's inside.

    Home? A castle :]. Still not decorated, got it a year ago, still haven't actually unpacked... :]

    Does anyone else ever become a bit concerned when they see threads like this that ask people to talk about all their UO "valuables"? Every time I see a thread like this, I have to wonder who is taking advantage of it to try to identify someone new to try to hack for access to gold, rares, valuable house locations, etc.

    The richest people in UO were/are the dupers. Then the brokers. But are they really considered "players"? Depends.

    No, not really.
    This just seems like a fun topic to discuss.

    From a paranoid perspective I can see how people would be concerned though.

    The guy who looted Hemisphere.
     
  48. It does raise questions, but I think most people are paranoid enough to not open themselves up to getting hacked. For example, there is only one person in the whole of UO *wink* that knows more of my personal information than just my first name, and that info wouldn't help them to do anything regarding my account, or any other secure website. I think people that get hacked gave out some piece of information or clicked a link to something, whether knowingly or not, that enabled someone to figure out or obtain what they needed to know.
