    In real life Antique items last a long long long time, maybe too long in my opinion. So anyone who has a method to add longevity to UO's antiques, let us all know. Thanks.

    Antique items in real life are usually very old and most are fragile. I wouldn't want to use them as a weapon or armor. They would most likely break faster than a brand new piece.

    Or don't repair it. The antique tag will be gone before you know it!

    Perhaps some age-reversing potion that works on items?

    Kind of defeats the purpose don't you think?

    Hey, I'm trying to think. He asked about how to turn an antique item into a non-antique item. Best way to do that is to make the poor little thing young again :p

    In real life people don't generally smash their antiques into other people and monsters.
