Holiday Items
Decay Warning!!: Some items are ‘newbied‘ meaning that they cannot be stolen or looted, however, they will decay quickly (i.e. death robes) if left outside a container, even if locked down. These items are safe to display inside containers. The best way to tell if an item is “newbied” is to use the Item ID skill on it. Newbied items will report a value of 0 gold coins when you use the Item ID skill on them. All other items have a value above 0 gold coins. Please note, Item ID wands do not report the value of the item.
Blessed: These items cannot be looted or stolen. As with all blessed items it is important to leave the item in your main backpack. Placing a blessed gift in a container inside your backpack will make the item susceptible to thieves as they can steal the container with the blessed item inside.

Chapter One: Holiday and Ticket System ItemsThe Holiday items page is the first installment a very ambitious quest to classify and catalog rare items in UO. As a merchant, and an amateur rare items collector, I had noticed the need for a comprehensive and updated list of rare items in UO. Of course, there is no better place to publish such a catolog, then Stratics. I requested, and was granted permission from Xena Dragon to update the Rare Items list in the Item Catalog.Classification: I followed the same guidelines as Zamboni Driver in the Stratics Merchant Essay. I have classified rare items into the following Basic Categories:
Unique items are quest items, there is usually only one per shard or an item might be unique to a specific shard. Examples would be Storm Staff or statue of Horace the Mage (both quest items from early days of UO on GL).
Rare items aka True Rares usually refers to ‘server birth’ items that were intended to decorate the world, but were ‘collected’ by players over time by various methods. They can also be items that used to spawn but don’t any longer (wigs, furs, no draw tiles), and items that were Holiday Gifts or from Ticket Systems. Items that are ore were created by bugs/exploits can be considered true rares if they can no longer be found/created.
Semi Rare items spawn at regular intervals and have three basic types: 1- as loot on monsters or NPCs (plate of cookies, some types of necromancy reagents, colored sandals) 2- must be stolen from containers inside guard zones (food items, square tool kits, rolling pins) or 3-are found just laying around in dungeons or other locations outside guard zones (skull candles, bloody water bowls, broken chairs). I will also include shipwreckitems in the semi rare category.
Items that are not considered rare are basically all the rest of the items in UO that can be bought from NPCs or made by players. Some items commonly thought to be semi rare but can acutally be purchased or made are ‘wrong facing’ bandages, bowl of flour with rolling pin, beads, and spyglass.Pricing:I have not attempted to put monetary value on these items because everygood merchant knows that items are worth whatever patrons will pay for them.Sources:My two main sources in rare items research were the Mastersage website and rare items message board (no longer in existence) and the Markee Dragon Rare Items pages and message board. Special thanks to the individual Rare Item Experts that helped me on this project, Ramirez, GM Rare Items Hunter from, Dot Warner, Mayor of Arcodia and Proprietor of the Etheral Emporium on Great Lakes, Ryak, Proprietor of the Sandlewood Box on Great Lakes, and Honey of the Fishing Council of Brittania.I hope this helps to provide information to both merchants and patrons, and promote fair and happy trading,
