    Its been some time since I've been a consistently active player, and I'm considering returning. That being the case I would appreciate any vets willing to take the time to update my on the current state of rares collecting and uo in general. Thank you! HI TOMAS!

    well, in a nut shell:

    1. It has been pretty quite on continuous supply of duped rares since the last big ban little over a year ago.

    2. The usual suspected vendors are not showing anything new except their left over supplies.

    3. EA Mythic took 25 or so of the more duped items and made them replicas that spawnes on champs now.

    4. The new EM season 7 started over the holidays by them showing up on their respective shards to greet players and on occassion pass out a greeting sash.

    5. We are now in the midst of a new EM arc with Valentine weekend being the first item-related events across all shards.

    6. currently, Alecetis's collection (whats left of it) is for sale.

    7. You still get the occassional item here and there for sale.

    8. There hasn't been a Rares Festival since you left :(

    9. Collectors wise, somoe older veterans have left but new collectors are emerging.

    Thats about it.

    hrm, well manti that isnt exactly inspiring news.

    i still feel i would like to try and return, how many old collectors are still around? if i were to resurrect the rares festival do you think there would still be a strong interest?

    EA made a statement about trying to ensure that all that participated in events recieved items given out, or that the rewards for Events be non items, like names on plaques and things of that nature.

    do you mean that in regards to player run events, or all uo run events?
