Regarding the 1kpp Rings

In a saddened truth, while 1000pp is too much because they can be found cheaper, we must realize that items like this one are becoming FAR TOO easy to attain. My wizard is of the 24th lvl, and already has obtained items (for very little plat) to make him a super-trooper on the battlefield. Example? Chetari Wardstaff for under 3k, look it up, you'll see my point. These rings are certainly worth 1k, but I dont think we're going to sell things for thier full worth anymore. My feeling is that (for crafted items) the current supply will circulate at these lower prices, and crafters won't be able to rely on thier crafts for income. Sad, but seemingly true. ~~ Same goes for Taxies =) ~~

I've got a few of these bad boys for sale on the 7th Hammer. I'm asking 2k each or 3.5k for a pair, but I'm flexible on the price. Send me a tell in game if you're interested.

As of 3/18 I've slashed my prices due to popular demand. I'm now asking for 1k each and I'll make as many as you or your guild need. Send Olurin a tell in game and I'll hook up the deal.

Okay, another edit here. Someone explain to me why people keep telling me I'm charging too much for these rings? I get tells like, "1k? These only cost 220pp to make! You're ripping off people who don't know better!" Alright first of all, aside from the Ring of Lightning which drops off KING TORMAX, these rings have the highest int and mana of any tradable ring in the game. Second of all, who cares how much they cost to make? If they cost twice as much to make, they shouldn't be worth twice as much to a player. If a Ford Pinto cost 2 billion dollars to produce that doesn't mean Ford should try to sell them for 6 billion. Likewise it doesn't matter to me that I spent 2000 dollars on a guitar that probably cost 50 bucks to make. The cost of production should not be an issue when determining the price. (Well I mean you can't sell for less than production cost, but you get my drift.)
Example: Velium Sapphire Necklace (8int 8str) sells for 800pp up to 1k on my server. The Amulet of Necropotence (13int 10svmagic -100hp's Illusion Skeleton) sells fo 50k!! Granted illusion skeleton is a pretty nifty trick to have up your sleeve and the 13 int and the save are impressive, but how is the Amulet worth 50 TIMES what the necklace is. The only explanation is that the amulet comes from the Dragon Necropolis (or is it the Plane of Fear?). Why does that matter? Where the item comes from has no bearing on its worth to the person who wears it.

Example 2: Same Velium Sapphire Neck. Still sells for around 1k. People are telling me I should be selling these rings for 1k per set, not 1k each. So somehow a pair of these rings (16int 90mana 8ac 20hp's 8svfire) is now worth the same as one 8int 8str neck slot? There is no logic behind this system of economy.

Sorry about this rant, although I'm sure no one will read it. I'm keeping my price at 1k each on these bad boys even though I know it's well below what they're worth.

I'm still making these things and selling them on the 7th Hammer. 1k each and I'll make as many as you or your guild need.

I think you're missing one very simple (and fairly obvious) point. If these rings cost 200PP to make and can be sold at 1000PP, someone else will make them and undercut you.

This doesn't necessarily mean there's anything wrong with the price you're charging. Personally, I wouldn't pay 1KPP for the ring. But, that's a personal preference. (I'd buy the bits myself and find someone to imbue the gem for me. After this, I could find a jeweller to put it together for a very small fee.)

The rarity and difficulty to obtain for any item in the game does effect it's price. This is a given. There's not even room for debate on this one. And, these rings are neither rare, nor hard to obtain. (The hardest bit is getting the gem imbued.)

You've obviously taken the time and effort to build your jewellery skill up. And, it is only right that you are allowed to profit from this. However, both you and the buyer have to accept the price. If you're both happy, that's not an issue. If they decide you're ripping them off, you get no coins.

Either way, loosen up a bit! *Grin* If they're selling at 1KPP, you're makin' a fortune and can afford to ignore your critics.

The truth is remarkably malleable. It can be shaped to fit any man's beliefs. The value of this ring is similar. To you, it's with more than 2KPP. To many others, it's not. No big deal! *Shrug*

God I must be bored to respond...

1) I didn't miss the point that I'd be undercut. I get undersold on these things all the time. That was not the reason for my rant. I was confused because people tell me the rings are worth less due to their cheap production cost. I don't see how that makes a difference.

2) Obviously if the buyer doesn't agree to the price I get no coins. I have yet to find a way to demand money from other players in EQ.

3) You're right, the rarity and difficulty of obtaining an item affects its price. My question is why. If a rusty dagger drops in NToV, is it worth more than one that drops off a skelly in Nek? I will never understand how prices are set in EQ. The economy makes no sense. It's like people on EBay buying brad pit's soiled underwear for 2 grand. "Oooh it came from the Dragon Necropolis so it's worth 60k" sounds just as stupid to me as "Oooh they touched brad pit so they're worth 2 thousand dollars". I guess to some people having smelly hanes from brad is worth more money than having the boxers I'm wearing right now, but that's no system to build an economy on.

And these rings aren't hard to obtain, eh? Try getting down to the depths of Sol B and buying the imbue fire opal spell off Zordak.

I know I'm not going to change anything, but I like to try.

That's the most illogical, immoral and down right awful thing I've ever read. I'm not going to get into philosophy on a chat board for a video game, but Jeebus. Try taking a math class some time and see if you can make 2+2=5 by believing it.

Well, I'm off to change the truth to fit my belief that I'm a rock star. See you guys on tour.

Hmmm, let me pull up my transcripts real fast... Yeah I thought so. Computer Engineering/Math double major and a minor in Physics. This is totally off topic (I don't even sell these rings anymore), but while I'm on this thread I thought I might as well put up another post.
2+2 does NOT equal 5 even in Quantum Mechanics. Quantum is all about probability waves. You may have a system where there're a 90% chance of having 2 particles in an infinite potential well and then you add 2 more particles in but when you open the lid of the box (so to speak) you find 5 particles inside. This doesn't mean that 2+2=5, it means that the odds were beaten and there actually were 3 particles inside the well to begin with. Or an electron tunneled through the lid of the box. Or a pair of virtual particles appeared in the box just as you opened the lid and the one with negative mass was pulled into a spacial dimension beyond our ability to measure. Quantum is a magic act. Just because you see a rabit come out of the hat doesn't mean it appeared out of no where. Mass/energy is always conserved. If a particle spawns out of nowhere with positve energy then there's another particle somewhere that has negative energy. You CANNOT get more out of a system than you put into it. And I'll believe otherwise when you solve the cold fusion equations.

And now onto Calculus... The obvious is that you can't disprove arithmetic with calculus. Calculus is, in essence, a way to do arithmetic on an infinite scale. If arithmetic were false (read subjective, or non-absolute) then calculus would also be false and therefore any proof you make with calculus would be true only by sheer luck. Basically what you said is that math is flawed and I'll use this flawed system to prove that it's flawed. If the system is flawed you can't prove ANYTHING with it. What most likely occured is that somewhere in your "proof" you divided by 0 or multiplied by an infinite. Here's a common "proof" that people think proves math flawed.
Assertion: The only realy number is 0.
Let a be any real number.
Let b be equal to a.
a = b
a*a = a*b.............Multiply both sides by a
a^2 - b^2 = a*b - b^2........Subtract b^2 from both sides
(a+b)(a-b) = b(a-b)..............Factor
a+b = b...............Divide both sides by (a-b)
a = 0...............Subtract b from both sides

And so by this "proof" you can say that a is any real number and that it equals exactly 0, therefore all real numbers equal 0. Well guess what, up there in the step where I divided both sides by (a-b) I actually divided by 0 which of course gives an undifined value. Since a = b, a-b=0 by definition.

I'm not sure how you think you proved that 1+1 = 0 using calculus but I'd bet that you did something along these lines.

Anyway back to the original topic... My whole point was that basing a system of economy on an item's rarity/difficulty to obtain rather than that item's value to a player makes no sense.

I recently saw a faulty proof which reminded me of this post. Nice to see that everyone else has moved on and no longer cares about this debate anymore, but for anyone new to this thread here's a little bonus.

The integral from -1 to 1 of the equation y = 1. (Or any integral where the area on the positive half of the x axis is the same on the negative half of the x axis.) By the rules of integration, you have to break the integral into 2 parts; -x to 0, and 0 to x.

When you do the integral of y = 1 over the distance of x = -1 to x = 1, you recieve a 0 for a solution.

If you do the integral of y = 1 from x = -1 to x = 0, you recieve 1 for a solution.

If you do the integral of y = 1 from x = 0 to x = 1, the solution is also 1.

I suppose that someone could say that the integral of y = 1 over x = -1 to x = 1 has the solution 0, but is also the sum of the solutions 1 and 1.

By this (insane) logic one might state that 1+1 = 0.

This is incorrect. No where in these inane ramblings does the mathematician come remotely close to what can be considered a rational thought. He is awarded no points for this round. And may God have mercy on his soul.

These rings rock. They only cost me 200pp each at that. I bought the platinum bars myself for 105pp each, then i bought the fire opals myself for 55pp each. The hardest part was finding a wizard to imbue them for me because I was only level 27 and I didn't want to wait two levels. I then paid a 250 master jeweler 40pp each to make them for me. They bring me up to 222int, and with the new int cap with the Luclin expansion, they are great. What wizard really cares about stregnth anyway? No self respecting wisard solos after the newbie levels where you do just as much damage with your dagger or staff as you do with your nukes, and if you get encumbered, you gate to GFay or Nexus and sell your junk and drop the cash in the bank.

OMG are you really that stupid? Strength IS important and try being encumbered and running to where u are WILL get left behind your group and they WON'T like waiting for you. Maybe at lvl 28 strength doesn't mean anything to you but from the beginning i tried not to reduce my strength and actually tried to increase it. bought the 8int/str necklace as an example. Strength is important to wizards since we have so little and try to build int. these are nice rings but they WILL make you encumbered faser due to the lowered strength.

How to make this jewellery
# Mar 30 2001 at 2:32 AM Rating: Good
You must first get the imbue fire opal spell from the merchant that spawns after naggy dies in soulsek B, this could take days to do so be prepared for a long camp or get a friend to get it. Then you have to buy the fire opals from the girl in the temple of soulsek ro, she is an erudite and sells the opals if you hail her and talk about them, she says you need gold but 55 platinum works :), Imbue the fire opals and get them combined with enchanted bars of silver,platinum, etc..... The best rings for the cheapest are the gold ones with 6int on each of em, and are only about 65pp each. Happy hunting! :)

Get all these items in addition to the imbued plat Fire opal rings and your wizard is +10 str and +52 Int. All these items are easily obtainable and my Erudite worshiper of Sol Ro is ready to kick ***. I don't even have to worry about what cloak I wear as an Oracle robe will put me at 200 Int. Now I just need to get the imbue fire opal spell.

but would ANY class other than a pure caster (that's right, I'm eliminating hybrids) wear this? Ouch -8's tough enough as a Paladin to keep from being encumbered. But as a caster (and if the other posts are correct - only wizards) then the trade off for +45 pure mana points is just too much I guess. I can't play a pure caster (causes too much lag for me), so I respect them for their abilities. Would you wizzies actually take the -8 STR for the mana?

Is 14ac 8int 8fire 12hp 30mana worth tradeing 3str? Tough one.... If you are a warrior.
Warriors don't worship Solusek Ro.

If you were wearing Batskull earrings originally There is still a positive gain of 6int and a positive gain of 1str The other bonuses remain the same.

Sure Thick Banded Belt doesn't come cheap...

Dang right I'd take the 8str hit for the 8 int and 45 mana...

Once wizards hit the soft cap of 200 we need as much +mana as we can get. These rings not only give us HUGE +mana but more int than any ring I've seen. I have no use for str other than to keep me from being encumbored with my current gear. I've no need to carry lots of armor and misc items around with me.

2 of these rings equals:

but it also means:

I can easily think up some gear that can combat the str hit... Bottom line, be a Solusek Ro worshipping wizard, or you lose out on a great wizard item.
# May 11 2001 at 7:11 AM Rating: Default
Yep i will take the STR hit for these for sure... all STR means to me is how much i can carry, and so what if im encumbered hehe... im not getting hit if in a group... and im not getting hit if im kiting solo (with my new tboots i might add :)

So yeah... actually i would trade 30 str for the right amount of mana hehehe

THIS RING ROCKS!!!! I play a 52 wiz on Fennin and i love these rings. i don't care about the str and i love the int and mana. the extra int i get from these rings lets me put in more mana and str things. like i'm wearing 2 gold fire emerald bracelets (i know their lame but the 5 str is needed and they are fine until i get 2 velium blue diamond rings ;) and using weight reducing bags. If your low on str get ee bag, light burlap sack and, if ya have about 5k, a tinkerer's pack.

Great with some ac on jewlery and with golden (chitin) bracer you would end up with:
+30 int
+18 ac
-2 str
and the misc from the rings.

It'd be expensive but I just wanted to point out that there is always a way.
A pity that all the other imbued jewlery is crap though.

"A pity that all the other imbued jewlery is crap though."

some of the imbued is pretty pitiful, but the Mithaniel Marr Imbued Platinum Diamond Rings are awesome. They are 5wis 5sta +5 to all resists. My cleric wears a pair of them. Losing 4 wis compared to the velium jasper rings is well worth it for a boost of 10 to all resists. They would be nice for wis hybrids as well, becuase of the stamina. My cleric is up to 110 stamina, so if I were ever dumb enough to melee, he wouldn't have to worry about stamina.

So, not ALL the other imbued jewelry are bad.

I'm really sorry.. but who in their right mind would take a ring of Cham over this??? even if you had 500 int it wouldnt make a difference. This is a GREAT amount of int for a ring... 2 of these is 16 int AND 90 mana... that alone gives u room to put mana stuff in other int slots... I.E. instead of int earrings blackened sapphire, or necklace too. ***** STR if your a caster.. this is one kickass ring!
