It appears we have some brand new rares in Ultima Online. It appears that some rare bottles and flasks have shown up for sale on Atlantic. I do not know exactly where they came from but I find it really interesting that they look exactly the same as the graphics thy use for the new stealable consumables. Commonly sold with the sets of bottles and flasks is another new item, the "Worldgem Bit." I know i've seen that graphic before several times but I cant think of what it was. I am thinking, "Piece of Obsidion Statue." And this new rare is actually an old one, but around this same time yesterday, there were 5 different ones for sale in Luna.......... Skull Mugs. Now wasn't that one a server birth? A very hard to get item that I have pursued obtaining for years... now finally for sale on 5 vendors ranging from 10 mill to 35 mill. I have not yet compared these current mugs to an old one, but I HOPE that there is a noticable different for the sake of not ruining the item's rarity. Another three, once IMPOSSIBLE to get server birth items have also surfaced in mass numbers. You all remember the "plate of food," the "dirty plate" and the "short stool?" Well you can currently buy as many of these as you want from a Luna vendor on Atl. I thought I was lucky one day, and found a stellar deal by seeing that plate of food for 15 mill. So I bought it, took it home, cheerfully locked it down. Recalled back to Luna, and in less than 15 minutes, the guy had restocked a new plate! Every now and then I'd watch people buy the plates and the guy would stock them back up quickly, same story with the stool. So with all this, with the Luna vendors selling 15 Val hammers, with the guy who stocks 500 barbed kits a day on every shard, with Skull Mugs, Plates, wide abundance of Soulstone Tokens and Character Transfers, is it safe to admit that there is a problem? Or at least tell me that I am wrong, and that I blew this out of proportion, and that we can now get all those items on Japanese Shards, those of us that choose to play on this hemisphere, are simply oblivious to this. and that a select group of smart businesspersons are getting these items from a Formosa quest and just xffering them over. That is what I WANT to hear. So please tell me that, that way I will have some shred of fake confidence that this game is not totally getting ruined by dupes. Someone should have posted this already.
