    Hey everyone, this is a bit of a reboot of a previous thread where everyone mentioned the items they enjoy collecting. Well this time I'd like to hear what everyone considers their top 5 favorite items in their collection. Not items you wish you owned or items you had but sold years ago. Just items that are part of your collection currently.

    My Top 5 Favorites

    1. My old footwear (I'm lumping it all together)

    2. Double Blessed Sigil Lantern

    3. Robe of The Mad Mage

    4. Tattered Rotten Garment (cloak)

    5. Mesanna's Slippers

    My Collection is pretty sentimental as well...

    1) The LuT Guildstone-Long personal story behind it.
    2) My entire (old) whispering rose collection, as they represent players and friends who have left their mark on the game even when most are long gone. My ultimate favorite rose being a whispering rose from YourLover.
    3) My "I Ran Over Grandma" Deer Mask-which gives people a laugh, but also was given to me by a very dear friend.
    4) My Dreadmare Nibiru, who is not only a really great horse, but was bought from someone who later became a very great friend (thank you Quacklebush)
    5) My crystal ball that says "A snowy Scene of Doom" Yes I know not that rare but still makes me chuckle :)

    Nor do they have to be. Mine aren't my most valuable, at least not all of them. The purpose of this isn't about drop rates or gold, just what your favorite items are. Everyone has favorites.

    Haha try! However I understand that it may take you a few days.

    Hmm ok here goes.

    1) My in game wedding ring, had a real ceremony with GM's involved.
    There were like over 50 people mostly from our guild.

    2) 2 story statue in a box that was given to me by a friend.

    3) My first singing ball I earned from the first turn in. Worked to earn it.

    4) My first Valorite hammer, was one of the first on the shard. Brings back
    great memories due to all the friends I made that I traded with.

    5) Last but not least my xmas statue collection, which at times kept me
    playing UO when most of my friends left for WOW. It's a collection
    that I will never complete but I get one step closer every year!

    :) well I have all the names that's true. But I am collecting all the names
    with all the colors and in both directions. Which amount to a total of
    1140 possible differant combinations of xmas statues.

    Oh and for those who have never seen or have not seen Manticore's museum
    on Baja outside the gates of Umbra. It's a must see wahoo it's just simply
    something that words would not do it justice!
