    Is there any rare worth 200k in the game?

    hate to be the DB to tell ya no, but no, the cheapest 'rares' i can think are gonna be in the 10m range and even then they arent super rare or all that desirable, thank the dupers for making hundreds of mils-bils of gold in the space of 10 min and circulating that IG...

    2 mil was not a boatload 5 years ago. Try before 2000.

    You can make gold much more quickly ingame now. And with all the gold that is ingame, inflation keeps prices on rares high. Do some reading, and figure out what character you like to play the best then tailor them so that you can start making gold as quickly as possible (if that's what you want to do). Usually it's an awareness of what items are valuable, such as the crimson cincture which is a half apron drop from peerless. Those go for 17 mill last I heard. Maybe its 15 or something now, dunno. But there's quite a few ways to make money quickly nowadays, you just need to do some reading and maybe get in a good group or guild then get a lil lucky. [​IMG]

    I bought a castle for 1m. Yep, I'm old.

    So, back on topic, I've seen some actual one-of-a-kind items for sale for 1-2m. I know it's still more than the OP wanted to spend, but technically one-of-a-kind items are very, very, very rare -- even more so than the vine cords or whatever people spend their billions on. [​IMG]

    See, the key is to actually *want* the odd/unusual 'rares' that are in fact very rare, for the rarity itself and not for the status others place on it. Then, you can collect affordably.
  9. Ill sell you my silver wooden quarterstaff of vanquishing for 200k.

  10. Hey, you might be able to get a full suit of ranger armor for 200k!
  11. Speaking of...

    Why do they sell for 150k?

    I mean... Shouldn't they be up there higher?

    I dont remember everyone picking the ranger suits...

    Plants are 500k-1.5M... So why would an entire suit sell for 150k?

    I seem to recall ranger armor was given out twice, once for Christmas and also for a long time via the new player tickets which is what 'did in' the value. Whereas plants were only given out once in 1999 I believe.

    Pete is right...everyone picked the ranger armor over a nautical compass and spyglass!
