Why anyone would pay 300 million gold for anything is quite beyond me. Course, I guess if you have 300 mil you gotta spend it on something! Just like RL cash, "you cant take it with you."

I have read 'somewhere' that they only spawn on two shards. Europa and one other I can not think of. So unless you are on one of them shards, the cost of a Cu Sidhe plus a transfer is in the price. 300mio is a high price, but you want to be one of the elite right? If/when I find one that I can tame, I would sell for like 100 mio, but if people wanted to pay more, I think I could be talked into it.
Blaze cu sidhes are exceptionally rare spawn, however, they can certainly spawn on any/all shards. Put very simply, the more turnover of cu sidhe spawn, the more likely a blaze cu sidhe will spawn. The higher population shards therefore have a bit of a natural advantage, though I also believe a dedicated tamer community on less populated shards have just as much chance of a blaze cu spawning. It's not called random number generator for nothing!
I spent just over a solid year taming cu sidhes intensively. When I say intensively, I mean roughly 4-6 hours per day everyday though generally spread out over the course of the day/night as I'm a mother, work part-time and am in further education, too.
In that period of one year of hard taming, I was fortunate to tame four blaze cu sidhes. Another two to my knowledge spawned on my shard. The first I gave to a friend, the second I kept for myself, the third and fourth were also given to friends. The first has since been returned to me and I will very soon be selling it for in-game gold, whether by auction on my shard or by word of mouth.
For those who wanted proof they exist, here's a screeny of me and Percy (short for Perserverance! )
Welcome, too, to say hello to my tamer, Lady Vix, on Europa and if I'm not riding Percy, I can always pull him out of the stable since Percy's vain enough to enjoy being shown off.

Congrats on the blaze Cu!!!
Thank you. Percy was the second of four blaze I've tamed thus far. The first I gave to a friend, the second I kept, while the third and fourth I also gave to friends.
Since then, the first I tamed has been returned to me and I'll be selling that one as who actually needs two blaze cu sidhes?!
Last offer stands at 400m. Insane, isn't it?!

Wow!! That's alot. Does anyone actually still have 400m anymore? Just curious.
Wow is right. I agree it's rather an obscene amount of gold. It could be aruged that in giving away three blaze cu's, I've given away over a billion gold, though in 8yrs, I've certainly never had anything like such an amount. I have some pricey items to be sure, though all have been earned slowly over long periods of time, and today as ever I am effectively still earning my insurance/running costs on a daily basis via hunting.
As far as the recent duper banning rounds, surprisingly, yes, plenty have that much and far more besides. One really needs only to look at the Rares Collector forum on Stratics for an idea of just how much in game gold there is still in the game.
In the last few months, I sat with a friend who was panicking when his vendor went haywire (would not accept payment nor would it pay out) because it had exceeded the 2bil limit. A GM did eventually show up & was able to fix the vendor gone haywire, and my friend was "happy" to have "only" lost a few hundred million (whatever the amount was over & above the 2bil limit). :shocked: An honest trader, this friend (who was relieved to have lost far more than I've ever had over 8yrs) is still very much around and in game.
I appreciate rares, though I am not myself a rares collector or trader. If, by some miracle, I were inexplicably offered any in-game rare, I'd eagerly choose something as simple as "horse dung."
I'm primarily a tamer and spent over a solid year taming & killing off cu sidhes & para cu sidhes in order to win the tamer-lottery. I gave them away. That one has been returned to me really only means I'm able to actualise a quarter of what I earned over that period, or perhaps one-half if you properly consider the one I've kept for myself.
