Was just wondering why the nice +mana item out there is so renty ..
Considering it has -10 in a stat, its rent seems very high when you
compare it to a certain +5 stat +hp item.
Just a thought :)

Its just my thought that mana is a lot more useful in situations
than hp can be. Hit points are only a measurement of how long before
you die from wounds, and with mana you can heal hp, cast
offensive/defensive spells. With hp, you can only heal and watch it go
down in fights again

This item which you speak is 'out of spec' in that its +mana is
higher than it's technically allowed to be. But since said item
has been in the game with those stats for a very long time, and
the minuses are a definite deterrent from wearing it, we felt
(that is, I did, and after a discussion with Kaige, allowed it to
stay as is) that we charge full rent value for the +mana it gives

Speaking of out-of-spec.
Isn't the claw like really out of spec?
Let's say it's a herne's horn plus cheetah leggings plus valkyrie blade
minus a pentacle, then minus some rent for being anti-align, isn't it
still roughly 2kish under the regular spec? I mean, i love the thing and
all, but it does seem slightly underrent when the other +5 sword is like
from a really really really long quest, and the other damroll sword like
has no bonuses and still rentier.

There used to be an LT with a special section on how rent
is determined on eq... is that archived somewhere so that we can
take a look at it?

Actually, I've calculated and recalculated it many times and it comes
up just over what its minimum is for rent. It has some hidden -'s to
it that keep it lower as well.
And another str weapon has been 'upgraded' to compete with it a bit.
As far as the skyblade, it has one really nice bonus, which most people
could care less about or really don't know it is there. I can't really
mention it, but I consider it the most redeeming quality of the weapon.
