    pardon my noobness, but I have yet to attend anything like this (gave up true rare collecting back when they decided to destroy the market for them). Plus losing my marble table by letting someone borrow it then they got banned *sigh*

    however I'd like to get back into it, how would I go about buying an item? do I just x-fer over something like 500mil gold and hope I find an item I want? losing 60mil in transfer costs, or do I buy it then arrange payment to the owner on their shard?

    thanks for putting up with me!

    Xfer gold over to Pac for the rares fest and visit the vendors set up at the rares fest house or buy from the auction there.

    Price for a back and forth transfer should be less than 40m on most shards. If you have close trusted friends going you can split the cost of the transfer with them as well to lower your cost. Most who go to the rares festival to buy also go to sell so what they make generally pays for the transfer cost. Perhaps you can dig through your chests for enough items to sell to get a vendor which will help you with your transfer fees. *smiles*

    aye, I have "new" stuff. but everything I have is post AOS, I sold out when AOS hit and they started remaking monthly spawns craftable ect. so nothing considered rare (I HATE EM/event items post 2000, I know they are considered rare, but not in my mind =p ). I wanted to take at least 500mil in case something good shows up at auction, if I bought 4 transfer tokens just for two characters, that's 68mil (17mil per is the cheapest right now). I just thought maybe they would let you confirm all of your gold if you wanted to bid on big ticket items, then if you win you transfer the gold to the owners server, pay them, then get your item and transfer it back, or something. Or maybe transfer gold after you won, I dunno haha.

    but if that's the only way, I suppose I'll just consider the 68mil the price of admission heh

    Why you need 4 tokens? you can transfer 875 items at a time. 125 x 5 pack horses and 125 for your pack and bank.

    Just letting you know.

    I had NO idea you could do that via pack horses. hrrrm, that would have saved me a lot when I moved over to ATL haha, I was deleting chars and making more to get everything moved.

    thanks! find me there, I'll buy you something for 15mil since you saved me 30 ;)

    Yep, max item transfer is 900 items. So plenty of space. If you've already bought the tokens you can bring them with you and possibly sell them to someone at the festival or hold on to them for the next one. Look forward to seeing you there!

    I have registered everyone from Stratics, PMs and ICQs. At this point we have only FIVE open vendor registrations available! If you have any interest in a vendor, speak up quickly...

    Do I need to be concerned? I was given vendor 51 but my name is not on the list. Thank you

    Shelleybean,

    I sent your name to Crystal Rose, who maintains the top portion. Anyone who has been given a confirmed Vendor number has nothing to be concerned about - except perhaps needing more gold! Looks like we are going to be chock full of great rares soon!

    Everyone who has not yet requested a vendor,

    I have been contacted by two more people in the past few hours, and will confirm them tonight. Almost full!

    Thanks,
    Miss D

    Riply,

    I do have one spot left at the main house. Please contact me via PM or ICQ with the necessary information and I will supply your confirmation number.


    To anyone else who has not yet reserved a vendor for the rares fest,

    We are exploring two neighboring malls for additional vendors. Please let me know if there is interest in this. Additionally, if there is only one more person who would like a vendor, I will give mine up.

    Thanks,
    Miss D

    SevenDF, Orc39,

    I will send you ICQs tonight. I believe I can fit you both at the main house. One renter and myself are planning to remove ourselves from the list to make room for the two of you, unless I can work out spaces at the neighboring housing.

    Thanks,
    Miss D

    Hi SevenDF, Orc39, Restroom Cowboy,

    I have not forgotten about you. I am still working on the additional space at the neighboring mall, and will post a reply as soon as this is worked out. Thanks for your patience.

    Sorry, Cowboy, but it isn't up to me as to who gets my spot. =[ It's free now and Miss D will assign it.
     
  39. Eden13

    Eden13 Guest

    I have now assigned spots in the main house to SevenDF and Orc39, as they were the next two to request vendors. I will request the top of the post be updated to reflect that as soon as they reply to my ICQs.


    Restroom Cowboy,

    Please ICQ, PM or Post the required information (ICQ name & number, home shard, char to accept the contract). I will then contact you to confirm your rental.

    Thanks,
    Miss D

    All,

    We have officially filled the 2010 Pacific Rares & Events Fest vendor house. All 58 contracts have been assigned. I will begin contacting the registrants to accept their contracts on Monday.

    Please do not stock your rares until the beginning of the fest! Store your gold, meet the other vendor renters, and get ready to have fun!

    Thanks,
    Miss D

    it kind of makes people lose a lot of gold by not stocking their rares right away, a few days that they could have been making gold from instead of just 3

    ?????????
    There is no vendor rental fee and you get charged what, 16 gold a day by the vendor itself if you have nothing on it? That sure is a lot, you're right.

    im not talking about the vendor fee... im saying i can make a lot more money selling rares on a vendor for about a week (today-sunday) rather than just the time the festival takes place (friday-sunday)

    no, i just find that unfair to people that want vendors, the first 3 or 4 rares festivals the hosts didn't care about when people stocked their vendors, then this one and the previous 2 they did for some reason

    The rules were stated for quite some time. You do not have to participate if you dislike the rules. The hosts are putting in their time, energy, and gold for it - not you.

    You have no entitlement to any feelings of unfairness or misgivings.
