    Welcome back!

    Although items have gone up in price... I think you could with 50m and spend it on the lower ticket items such as blood pies, mesanna roses, farewell shot etc. Start with some of the higher drop items and gradually add to your collection with the higher priced items. If you attend the shard EM events, you have a chance to maintain your shard's history from this point on without spending anything.

    Holy S***! Lol, thats a ridiculous amount of gold. Even if someone could have that much, where would you store it lol? Gl OP.
  10. Is the inflation so bad in the UO economy now that prices tripled? I know gold is not for sale, but what is the $ to gold ratio now.

    Actually, gold to cash ratio has not changed much since you left. Whole sale price is still around .25-.30 cents on the dollar and retail about .70-.90 may be more depending on who and how hard of the shard it is.

    There are just a lot more items since you left and a lot more gold has been made since then. You have to realize that UO itself doesn't have a good way to suck the gold out of circulation. The purchases of resources from NPC or vendor fees hardly makes any sort of dent so the gold just gets recirculated between players and at the same time more is being made from monster loot day by day.
  12. After I get back from vacation in 2 weeks I will log in and see how much gold I have left.

    Manti-- Let me know if you have any of the stuff I sold to you for sale.

    If you're looking to start a museum probably a good idea not to go after what everyone else is trying to procure. Also make sure before you start buying you figure out what you want and what things are worth.

    I kicked around the idea of coming back and starting a museum again but without the time and financial commitment to make it possible, let alone the learning curve to find out what indeed is rare these days, I decided against it.

    Like others said start small and work your way up from there. With all of the events that happen with nice items it is pretty easy to get some items for a new museum.

    Shop around and keep those eyes open. Even on Atl you can find really really good deals from time to time if you look around. Just 15 minutes ago found two bloody bandages for 250k each on the most populated shard.
