How do I find shard crossers?

    Hi all,

    I'm on Cats and it is sometimes hard to buy things I see frequently on other. more populous shards. Is there a site, forum, etc, where I might find shard crossers before they cross that I might hire them to carry a few items over?

    I've looked at not found anything.

    Thanks all

    No such site exists. It's best to just cross shards and obtain the items yourself. I think its safe to assume that if you have the money to purchase items that you can't find on your shard then surely you should be able to afford a couple of xfer tokens.

    Were they not banning people for doing this.... I thought i read that in a post somewhere either here or UO.com....

    Banning? Crying out loud (better expletive unused) I just want a couple of recipes I'll never find on cats. And no it wouldn't be cost effective to buy a token for my needs.

    So much suspicion. Sad. Relax.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Hi, I'm BardMal of Legends.

    On holidays I cross shard trade items, and have for many, many years. It is a "play style" - I consider my self an import merchant, or an "international trader" if you will.

    There is a stratics forum called "Holiday Trade forum" here on stratics, where many of us gather to co ordinate our trades and sometimes even gossip. Although stratics rules prevent us from publicly identifying "scammers" we do have a moderator controlled "trusted traders" thread.

    I would suggest developing relationships with others who play on different shards. There are many people who play UO whom I hold in high esteem, and many of these play on shards other than where I play.

    Sarah of Baja comes to mind. I was fortunate to be included in a surprise party for her on Baja, because friends of hers knew we traded with her and included us in her very special surprise party.

    There is a whole network of us with lists of trusted people we trade with. If you look up my posts on that forum, you can often see recorded the people with whom I have had good trades with.

    Because of the inherent risk and trust involved in cross shard trading, I am very stingy with whom I endorse. Once you demonstrate trustworthiness though, wide avenues often open up through our word of mouth relationships.

    There are several "cliques" of us through out the shards, and now would be the perfect time for you to introduce yourself and see how you can become a part of this community and playstyle if is interests you.

    The moderator of our forum is Orvago.

    Although I have no chars on your shard, what recipes are you needing? There may be some people here that are on your shard that have what you need stuck in a bankbox that you might be able to work something out.

    The UO Trader's Hall forum is the place here in UO Stratics for General Cross-Shard Trades. UO Holiday Trading is for the seasonal Cross-Shard Trading of Holiday and Promotional Gifts.

    However, be aware that Stratics does not allow the Buying, Selling, or Trading of In-Game things for Real Life Money.

    If you're looking for people to carry items over for you, you might want to post on UO Trader's Hall or post in the Shard Forum or Regional Trade Forum you're seeking to transfer from. Be aware that you shouldn't post to them all or more than one, as that will be seen as a minor form of spam and we have to keep strict Rules on this else people will abuse it.
