Where can I get (insert item) rare?

How can I get a rare?

Unfortunately a lot of rares don't spawn. If you want any true rares you will end up having to buy them from other players, that is if you can find the one you want for sale. You can try for daily rares. With AOS there are new rares called artifacts which spawn in dungeon Doom.

I have a rare, how much is it worth?

I don't know if the item I have is a rare, where can I find more information?

You can browse our Item Catalog and try to find the item. You could also do a search of our site. If all else fails feel free to post on our messageboards and someone will reply with information on your item.
I wish to sell my item, how should I do it?

Unfortunately where there is money there are scammers. Scamming people out of their rares is rather common but can easily be avoided with the right information. Click here for a guide on how to help protect yourself from scams and hackers.

It may be hard to find a buyer for your rare at the Main Britain Bank. It would be much better to post your sale on a trade forum. We recommend www.rpgtradespot.com/uo, you can also try posting on uo.tradespot.net or the stratics trade forum.
