    I'll trade an obnoxious amount of gold for the man who brings me "King of Thieves". Arguably the most valuable item ever to come from pacific shard.

    If you are talking about the ring for the King of Thieves. I think there has been at least one more made via the EM Wedding system :(

    Unfortunately, Shinobi did that on Atlantic....but it is entitled "The King of Thieves" as opposed to the original "King of Thieves"

    Indeed he did. I'm not sure if the "The" was added as a personal preference or if it was put in place to protect the original ring. I love the EM Wedding program for rp purposes, but it did take a whack at the value of some of them.

    I haven't been on in a long time, and finally checked the boards again. Figured i'd post a reply here to let you guys know that the "The" IS to protect the original ring. Since i spent so many years looking for it, i wouldn't do anything to hurt its value. Also, when i officially quit (even though i haven't played in months, haha), the "The King of Thieves" and "The Queen of Thieves" rings are both going down with my account. I won't put them into circulation, so they can't be confused with the real ones.

    "A Dark Orc Helm."
     
  7. Cebo Shroud by far.
    Anything with "I stole this...."
    King/Queen of thieves rings

    Pretty much going to have to travel from shard to shard prying these from their owners cold dead hands. I'm also certain that me getting the Cebo shroud is a sure sign of the Apocalypse.

    Yes, but ours were slightly different. They both started with "The" and they were silver. The original rings were gold.

    Unfortunately? Haha! You (and Sarme and Vlad) wanted to take his place at the wedding just to have the ring for yourself. :heart:

    *grins*

    Actually, between you all, I'm surprised he even made it to the alter...

    I can vouch for this. I personally asked EM Eris to name them "The King of Thieves" and "The Queen of Thieves".

    Also, our rings were silver. The original rings were gold.

    Mine is the horse dung as well as I am the one that traded the 300 mil plus items to obtain it for the second time. It goes well with my horse brushes and the horse bridle which are also favorites. My most favorite is my Golden Phoenix which is a one of a kind. Always love the animal rares.

    Does anyone find it ironic that one of the most coveted items is in fact: "a pile of poop?"

    Hilarious. I actually remember when I picked up a pile when I first started playing.....wish I held onto it.

    Not that it will be in my collection much longer, but my favorite item is my Cupid's Bow. Thanks to my amazing guild at the time (THR/THO), I came in fourth place at the Season 7 Valentine's Day event on Napa Valley. The first five places received a Cupid's Bow.

    If I still had a museum, I wouldn't dream of selling it. Since I don't, I feel kind of selfish keeping it locked up in a box.

    The Crook of The Mystical Moo is my white whale. Orc was kind enough to humor my obsession by making it moo for me when I met him at a rares festival. I may have had to change my pants afterwards. :blushing:

    Admittedly, if I ever do get one, I will probably spend the rest of my UO days running around doing the "interrupting cow" joke. Perhaps this is a dream best left unfulfilled...

    Coveted: Would have to be my 5 piece event suit from the christmas eve event in 2010 held on Atlantic. 1 of 3 suits and to my knowledge its the only suit completelly put together so far. My avatar is a picture of the suit.

    Desired: Would have to be the Red Nightmare from an event on a Japanese shard, originally it would be a dark green old SL War horse but the Red Nightmare just seems a lot nicer.

    Coveted: Would have to be the 29 Wooden Dock Tiles from the Magincia Invasion I have, and using as a bar and several tables in my inn. They just look tremendous.

    Desired: I've always wanted two things really... A singing ball, and a full suit of Pheonix Armour, after a friend of mine let me wear the helm once :)

    I thought I'd add a funny story about a rare though... 6 years ago I was doing the usual run around brittannia, this time looking for items to decorate a kitchen-themed room in my house. I stumbled across a small stone house in the middle of no-where selling a few items, one of which was a small pot for 700 gold coins. I had that pot locked down in my house for 6 months before a good friend (rares collector) stopped by to look at the place and noticed it. He told me it was a server-birth and was actually worth around 5-7mil at the time!

    Let's just say I don't have that little pot anymore, after my eyes turned to two pound signs... :)

    AND THE THREAD HAS BEEN RESURRECTED.

    Well played.

    I think I speak for many others when I say that a lot of items that I deemed desireable at one stage, are no longer due to new spawns and gifts.

    For instance I always wanted one of those large and small vases (The tan brown coloured ones), but now that they're widely available, I no longer want one... In fact I've not even tried to buy or aquire one as it depresses me. :)

    I wonder how many other people remember old server births they always wanted and now they're available to the masses don't even own one for that reason.

    I've been playing for 11 years now, so have seen a lot of things come and go, thankfully they haven't started giving out singing balls as christmas gifts... the day that comes will be my last I think! :)

    Ya I first found that place before the luna house moved to that location. The rares vendor there sells really cheap items from time to time as well when it is stocked.

    I always love rares, although I don't have many of my own. My favourite that I own would be my Crystal Idol Of Pthorath The Fallen Spider Princess. Partially because it's unique, but mainly because it's BLUE! (My favourite colour!)

    As for my favourite that I'd like to own... hrm... There are many I wish I owned, but I'd have to say either an Embroidered Oak Leaf Cloak, a Magical Door or Footsteps To Nowhere.

    I remember coming upon a house one time that had the Footsteps, but I can't for the life of me find it anymore. The minute I saw them, I had a total "SQUEE" moment :D

    Oh wow, this is a tough one. I do enjoy collecting rare foodtuffs like EM booze, but id have to say my favorite in my collection is the tree "Who knew a tree so tall could grow from a seed so small?"

    An item set id like to have is the silver jewelry crafted by Corin Gerald. I used to own the complete set on Pacific back in 1999, but sold them for next to nothing by todays standards.

    Oh, is it me or does Taylor kinda look like Mac from Its Always Sunny? =)
