    What was the best item you have ever purchased in game? Was it an uber weapon for dirt cheap? Was it that one rare item that you needed to complete a collection? Was it the one BOD you needed to complete the large for a val hammer? Could be anything =).

    Mine was about 4 years ago... a jug of Mistas Cider, which is an old rare item.. (green jug of booze). Was for sale in a bulk bag of assorted semi-rare foodstuffs for 500k. Just saw one go on the rares forum for 55m. But I like the EM booze, so its mine =)

    Pure value would have to be a double axe of force that my budding swordsman bought for 300 gold. It was 1998, when a lich was not an easy beastie for anyone and gave only about 100 gold. Cutting up orcs returned my money pretty quickly. Then a guild showed up, saw a corpse of someone who'd died to the spawn (I couldn't res), then ganked me far more for my stuff than supposedly PKing that guy.

    The character "Farsight" only started because I found an advanced character token which was mispriced on a vendor. I got 4 years of fun and stories (as well as a tamer) for less than the price of a long day's hunting.

    Found a 120 Magery scroll for 2.2M and a Mysticism 120 for 700k a couple years ago on the same vendor. I think someone forgot a 0. Oh well, my gain lol.

    Paid $50 for an account with house on Ebay many years ago.
    It was a beta seer account that was paid in full until 2030 and the house was the closest one to yew gate in fel. I immediately sold the house for 3x the price I paid for the whole account and I still own the account. Although its comp'd status is under review by good old Mesanna. Apparently she is very busy atm :)
    Either way the 10 years I played it so far for free added up to about a $1400 value so I am not complaining.
    Just wish it shook out differently as I know the only reason it ever came under review is the damn account management overhaul which caused it to also become lost and unplayable for a short while. Among all the other disgusting issues that overhaul caused lol.

    2 years ago I bought a tram castle on LS for 200m, price was cheap but my surprise was to find very old deco on the castle that included more than 10 server births and a few phoenix armor pieces.

    2 dread mares about 2 years ago. There were rumors abound on LS (spread by my guild mate :p) that around Halloween the EM's were going to have an event that would bring back dread mares... I bought two dread mares from people looking to make a quick buck. One I bought for 50m the other.... 20m. Yay me... too bad I never use my tamer.

    Probably a mage 120 for 2m when all the rest were listed at 20m.

    Also I didn't buy it but won it here on Stratics. A 15th anny robe which I then sold and got some other goodies.

    years ago i got a new neighbor in game.
    was out talking to him and he asked if i was interested in selling my large tower.
    i asked why, he was in a guild they where wanting to take over the entire area (back in the days when guilds did that kinda thing)
    i said no, id had that tower for a while and liked it.
    couple days later i run into the fella and he introduces me to a guild mate of his who just had to have my place.
    i told him i couldnt part with it.
    he offered me a castle in trade.
    this was back in the days when casltes where selling for big bucks on ebay.
    i didnt believe him so i said sure, you hand me the castle first and ill do it.
    he did.
    so i did.
    have had that castle ever since, found out shortly after i got the castle that the fella that i got it from did in fact buy it on ebay for over $2000 so i was shocked.

    My best buy was probably a 15th anniversary robe the day they came out, the guy sold it to me for 150 million, then about 2 hours later someone approached me in luna bank and offerred 2.8 billion, he really loved it, I even told him what I paid for it before he bought it. I guess he just had to have it that second. fastest money ever.

    When I first started on Siege, a kind soul offered to sell me a fire beetle for 10 gp. I had no money so I accepted and was very thankful. Years later, I still have this beetle and he happily smelts all my ore.
