    Took a long time before I fished one of these up and an even longer time before I got a second one. Anyone have a clue what market value is for one of these. Didn't see any on vendors for price comparison. No huge need for more gold so I sold it to the first offer which was for 5 million. What do people think? Are they worth more? Less? Not much use in game but seems to be quite rare. Curious.

    Probably depends a bit on what shard...

    I just finished 250+ MIB (house was getting full) and didn't manage to pull one up and in all my years of fishing have yet to pull one from the depths - so I am guessing 5 million was a steal. When I get mine it will complete the trail of clothes leading to the bed upstairs in my house:D

    They usually sell for around 5m on atlantic. They are somewhat rare, but have no real use other than deco. On a side note, you can reforge em!

    Varingian, you should have asked for more. Right now there's only one for sale on all shards, and the asking price is $10 mill (and he'll get it)....

    When I first read your initial post a couple of weeks ago, I remembered seeing one a long while back - but didn't realize that they came from bringing up SOS chests. So, I got dedicated. I've been fishing up MIB's for all of these past two weeks - and - to make a long story short.... I fished and sailed - and fished and sailed... and, amazingly, I ACTUALLY GOT ONE!

    Must admit, I had no idea how fulfilling that would be.... Anyway, I kept count of the SOS's it took, because I was prepared to do at least 500 before calling it quits. I think I got really lucky for a change (from what I've seen and read). I only had to do about half that - 248 to be exact.

    So, I wanted you guys here to know about my luck, here - in this - ever so appropriate - thread, because I knew you'd appreciate it the most. After reading Busty's post about being able to reforge them, I'm also gonna be posting about this on UHall, (not just to brag, but) because I want to get input on what people would actually Imbue on something this rare. For cripe-sake, a Yellow Polkadot Bikini Top, MUST BE WORN!.... Sooo, in the end I'm gonna Imbue it and slap it on one of the ten women on my 4 accounts - but - before I Imbue it with a combination that I'll no doubt regret when it's done, I'm gonna solicite opinions from everybody in UHall. I'd love for you guys to come on over and participate.

    Here it is:

    Oh, as you can see from the 2 pics - it's pretty much the same color when it highlights with a mouseover, as it is when it isn't. (Gives me an idea of how they came up with the color)... And, oh btw, how do you come up with the name Yellow Polkadot Bikini Top - and NOT include the freekin' DOTs? Not really complaining, more just wondering....

    Anyway - Just sayin......
    ;)

    MIB->Fishing -> Sea -> Beach -> and well bikinis.
    Paying homage to one of my favorite songs.
    Also couldnt find a hue combination that made it look polkadotty without being REALLY REALLY ugly.

    Well ...the one I sold was my second. Now I have to decide: sell the other or reforge? Hmm. Congrats on getting yours btw.

    do remember, though, that any selection that adds "Cannot be repaired" or "Brittle" will turn it that nasty grey color.
