    Located in New Magincia (guard zone), house closest to docks. Jump the teleport here, from my Yew gate house, just a few steps east of gate. Public auction safes on lower floor, and vendors. City, Dungeon, Serpent's Jawbone, and Moonstone Crystal portals. A Chest of sending for heavier items. Teleports to both Abyss houses, Umbra hub, Perv, Yew gatehouse, and Tanager's estate in Zento. When EM has events there is a em public gate right in front of house. Now linked with Britain hub.

    If anyone has a Auction safe and would like to place one here let me know. Will work out issues if they arise. These auction safe are a way to avoid vendor fees so all safes may or may not being doing an auction or a straight out price for item. Remember just because in guard zone please use wisdom on placing and shopping for items.

    ***UPDATED 3/20***Attention Siege shoppers! To make your shopping experience a bit more enjoyable, UWSP Town Market and Community Auction Safe Place have linked teleports. Have a wonderful day!

    *** EDIT*** 2/10/19
    When buying from auction safes you must double click on auction safe it self to bring up menu, and towards the bottom you will see "bid" and "buy now" boxes. Click accordingly once you decide.

    Did a house redo so now shop is a one floor and people buying can access around the outside or inside. Again still in guard zone but be careful and use wisdom when placing or shopping for items.

    ***2/13/19 *** Copy and pasted from UOGUIDE.com

    To begin an auction:
    • [​IMG]
      An auction safe placed in a house.


    • [​IMG]
      Auction safe menu as seen by the owner before setting up an auction.


    • [​IMG]
      Auction safe menu as seen by the owner after setting up the auction.


    • [​IMG]
      An auction safe with an item placed "inside".
    1. Double click the Auction Safe.
    2. Click the arrow to the left of "Select New Auction Item" and target an item in your backpack. Note that the item now appears locked down on top of the auction safe.
      • The item cannot be gold or a container.
      • The item must weigh less than 400 stones.
      • The item cannot be unvendorable.
    3. Type a description of the auction into the box next to "Description:". Note: You must click the arrow to the right of the box immediately after typing the description.
    4. Optionally, change the number of days to let the auction run by clicking the arrow to the right of the number of days.
    5. Enter an amount (in Platinum and Gold) as the minimum starting bid for the auction. Click the arrow to the left of "Set Starting Bid".
    6. Optionally, enter an amount as "Buy Now" price for the auction. Click the arrow to the left of "Set Starting Bid". Note: There is a 5% fee if a buyer accepts this option.
    7. Once you are happy with your options, click the arrow to the left of "Start Auction"
    Note: You may not end or modify an auction once a player has bid.
    The owner or co-owner can change what characters are allowed to place bids by setting the security of the Auction Safe. This is done by using the context menu on the safe and selecting "Set Security". By default, anyone is allowed to bid.

    To place a bid on an item up for auction:
    • [​IMG]
      Auction menu as seen by the bidder.


    • [​IMG]
      System message that you have been outbid.


    • [​IMG]
      System message that you have won an auction.


    • [​IMG]
      System message that your auction is finished and its winning bid.
    1. Double click on the auction safe.
    2. Enter your maximum bid (in Platinum and Gold) into the boxes. Then click the arrow to the left of "Place Bid".
      • If your bid is successful, the amount of your maximum bid will be deducted from your currency account.
    How bidding functions:
    • If your maximum bid is below the starting bid amount or the maximum bid of another player, your bid will fail and you will receive a message "You have been outbid."
    • If your maximum bid is above the starting bid amount and the maximum bids of all other players, your current bid will become the starting bid or highest maximum bid of a player plus 1 gold.
    • If another player bids more than your current bid but less than your maximum bid, your current bid will become the amount of of the other player's bid. That player will receive a notification that they have been outbid.
    • If another player bids more than your maximum bid, your maximum bid will be returned to your currency account and you will receive a system message that you have been out bid.
    • You may bid an amount that is greater than the Buy Now price, but another player may always exercise the Buy Now option. If you are the current winning bidder, you may not exercise the Buy Now option.
    • There is currently no way to know from the auction safe what your current maximum bid is.
    • There is currently no way to know from the auction safe if you are the winning bidder.
    Auction Completion:
    • Upon completion of the auction the owner will receive payment immediately and will be notified by in game message of the outcome.
    • Unused funds from the maximum bid in excess of the winning bid will be refunded at the end of the auction when claiming the item.
    • The winning bidder has 3 days to retrieve the item from the auction safe or it will revert back to the owner.
    • Once the auctioned item has been retrieved the auction safe will once again be available to start a new auction.

    There is now 21 auction safes placed. People are welcome to place several safes. Just place against a open wall spot, I had estimated that about 50+ safes could be placed against a wall. Vendor spots are available if you would rather run vendor. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.

    Just a info bump: The winner of an item from an auction safe needs to pick up item within 3 days, if not item goes back to original owner. And gold is removed from your account when ya bid. If you lose bid gold is returned to your account. But if ya win....,

    To toons who are co owned to the NM house. There is a Max 10 of co owners in house sigh so I will start dropping co owners that are friended as well. If you have problems with accessing safes, just pm me. We will work it out!

    In order to place safe you need to be co owned, to manage safe you only need to be friended. To which we are now testing. If you are only friended and want your safe back pm me.
