Default Traders' untradeables

As traders, we all operate in public under the assumption that everything has its price. This is an assumption that we subscribe to and try to popularize for our own financial benefit. It is an assumption, however, that we often don't actually live by in private. Many of us are also collectors and -- beyond that -- some of us even have that one special item that is simply not for sale. This thread is the place for you to show us your >>>SINGLE<<< untradeable item.

Please don't post giant pics of entire collections. Everyone's already seen them and you're already as famous as you're going to be for having all of those things. This thread isn't about your collection.

This thread is about your undying, passionate, quasi-pathological love for that one item that you won't sell, no matter what. It is the kind of love that a run-of-the-mill collector just wouldn't understand.

If there's a story attached to your special item, feel free to tell it! And please feel free to decorate the picture of your item with hearts (<3), smoochies (:*), and other signs of your affection. Otherwise, how will your item ever know exactly how you feel about it??

I just talked about this in the Past Trades thread, but here it is again. Sorry about the giant black blocks; I had other stuff on there and didn't want to go through the effort of taking a new screenshot. Necro was my first character, Spiteful Spirit was my first elite skill, curses has always been my favorite necro attribute, and Straw Effigy has always been one of my favorite skins, so this thing was just incredible to buy. And it's never leaving.

EDIT: Thanks for the fixin'!

I have an unded Mini Ghostly Hero. I got this gift from an incredible person that I will never forget. I miss him, and I don't know where he is, but I'm so grateful I got to know him. He's done plenty of wonderful things for all his friends in this game. He's a good leader, great sense of humour, a kind heart and will share his time without complaint. I can only hope the rest of the people in this game got to meet someone like him .

Well, the req9 14% Longsword I used to own until it was destroyed buy some *******. Oh, I repeat myself, so here's the story:

In mid 2007 Net F. who used to be a friend of mine asked me to help him selling the sword. I should open a Guru Thread, try to sell to some duper and he'd give me some of the Armbraces he'd make profite. I still was naive and poor at the time and I needed the money, so I agreed. Apparently no dupers were interested in the Sword, so times went buy, I made some ectos with trading, and the sword started to somehow interest me. I offered him 2,500e at some point I think. But he refused to sell. Then in mid December I don't know what happened to him, but he asked me if I wanted to buy. I think the price was something between 1100e and 1250e, I don't remember exactly. I agreed, thought some easy profit was in there. One week later I sold to a friend of mine, Dwaynas Minipet, for 1400e. He actually planned to resell it. But short time later in January he decided to quit, and sword quit with him. Well... it was mid or end of April until I realized what an epic, wonderful, lovely sword I had lost. Dwaynas hadn't been ingame for 3 months, but thanks God I had his IM-Number, and I contacted him there, begging him to come online and sell back to me for the price I last sold it to him. I promised to customize it, and so it happened: bought back for 1400e and directly custo'd it on my warrior. Where it would have stayed forever.... if not shit had happened.... -.-

Farmed for days to get was my first green... I was so proud of myself...and I mean I had only been playing like..a month... but I knew I wanted one after seeing a freind with one and looking up where you could get it from...

I guess it just has memories of my early days in guild wars... any of my el tonics or torm weapons...or minis I will sell if I can make a profit...

I know its not rare like most peoples's just what I am attached to...

I guess this item isn't really what I had in mind when I started this thread, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that this probably is the only thing I have that I really wouldn't sell.

It's Stza Erza's obsidian helm. Many of you here knew Stza. He was a friend and an officer in my guild and, as many of you also know, we lost him far too soon.

RIP Stza

Probably my Magmas. R8 +29 -2e. I've had good offers and such, i just always find a reason not to sell it. It's my baby, and i'll never find a more perfect Magmas for sale that i can even consider affording... For a while it was my shinobi, but I guess everyone has a price......

For me, r10 15% stance Sephis Axe that I bought for 200k back in the day. I remember how much I wanted a Sephis Axe and finally got my hands on one. It's been 5 years on and off and I still remember that trade. First weapon I customized. Customized about 10 seconds after I bought it ^^

For me it would have to my req 9 15^50 fiery dragon sword, cheap as chips these days but back in my nooby days it was the greatest thing since sliced bread and I wanted it ever so badly, and when I did finally rack up the plat to buy one I thought I was the most uber warrior around
