We've received multiple reports that new, supposedly "rare" items are appearing across the servers. These are not sanctioned items from the recent content patches or events, and in some cases even take on the appearance of server-birth rares.

If you find these suspicious items for sale, or see them being offered, please use the in-game reporting tool to page a GM.

Please enjoy your post holiday vendor shopping, but beware of deals that are too good to be true.


For those not familar, there are a lot of old three legged stools, dirty plates, skull mugs, etc., that have been appearing on vendors for 10-15m in large quantities.

Details on the info can be found here: http://boards.strati...ad.php?t=119804

Draconi made a comment on it as well in the thread.

Okay, Joann is unavailable right now - can I get everyone who has information on this to email Mesanna? (barmstrong@ea.com)

I don't have word on where this is coming from, and it seems highly suspicious, so please act with caution.


Followed by when someone said they just got a canned response, didn't see a GM or anything

They can't provide details or followup to the pager, and yes, GMs know where you are when you page and are invisible. Like... Ghosts. Like Ghost Moderators.


So, don't be taken by the cheap server birth rares!

Is this a bug or some hacker trying to make money off the game?

The Web Admin might have started using the phrase "I cannot help thee with that"

.....

*wonders how many client's I'd loose if I'd reply to some of the inane requests with that*
