    Ears

    I just thought about this:
    Are ears worth something in hardcore?
    Becouse I'm pretty sure a lvl 99 ear is far more rare than a soj.
    Who owns the highest level ear here btw? in hc ofcourse:)

    If this doesn't raise controversy then I don't know what will

    Re: Ears

    why? there are hardcore duels

    I wouldn't know about anyone willing to pay for an ear they didn't win though. what would be the use of it? It is not your trophy if you just bought it.

    ears are worth nothing, they have no purpose.

    They aren't even useful as proof offered for a bounty because there's nothing to prevent the target from collaborating with his friend to kill off his char and make a new one with his loot.

    Re: Ears

    Having no purpose does not prevent other people from valuing them - and I think that's true in any economy.

    What 'purpose' does a real-world autograph serve? About the same as that of an ear in diablo - but autographs sell for large sums of money.

    Re: Ears

    not as such, but there are a lot of people on HC who like to go into games and kill other players 'toons. they are often hacked out the wazoo when they do this (AA/chicken/etc).

    the ear of a well-known pk'er in HC can be worth a lot. i've heard of people offering insane prices for some ears.

    merely high level isn't enough to make an ear valuable. the ear had to have belonged to an asshat.
