    *Tosses all runebooks and already looted rares into the trashcan*

    Thanks @Larloch... can you imagine how much of a time waster that was about to be? A stand-up gent, you are.

    Does anyone have an updated market list for pricing on these spawning rares? Or perhaps at least a few pricing benchmark ranges based on spawn frequency (i.e. daily spawns sell for X, weekly spawns sell for Y, etc)?

    I found a few guides that appear to be significantly out-of-touch with the current market.

    The best guide is the trade forum honestly. You can also check vendors like Christoph Brock's, Captain Morgan's, and my own. They're all comparably priced I think.

    Template question here, seems like the following is the common build:

    Mage
    Medi
    Hide
    Stealth
    LPick
    Stealing
    (7th seems to be optional)

    How much stealing is actually required to collect rares? I'm assuming GM because of the weight of some of the rares, but how often is it used?

    You'll need GM stealing (Britain vase is 10 stones). Lockpicking isn't necessary for rares hunting. I also use tracking to scout, and detect hidden for good measure.

    Mage, Med, Hiding, Stealth, and Stealing are the big ones though.

    No, they are still active. No plans to turn anything off.

    Realizing the post date I find the comment still relevant today... Rezon, did you mean to imply that tracking is used for spawning rare hunting in some way?

    I always find it useful when running through a dungeon to be able to tell if there is someone else down there. It's helped me avoid a good number of folks over the years.

    It's also been useful to know if someone is camping the spot.

    Thanks to @Gideon Jura, @ReZon and everyone else who contributed to this great guide!

    It appears some of the pictures need updating though.
    • the image for "Hedge Maze - Bookcase" links to the wrong picture
    • images linked from the old phpBB forum (showing download/file.php in the link) are outdated and currently inaccessible
    Feel free to use the image below for the Chessmen at Ruins South of Yew, I don't know the exact spawn spots for the other missing images so I can't help with those. Anyone else willing to pitch in?
