Loot write up for returning/ new players

I've seen lots of questions on this on 2 forums. Firstly, it's a lot to write so please feel free to add or suggest removal of something. I'm not the UO master, I'm just trying to help people. Second, this list is a moving target, templates change. Finally, I will offer no pricing. Its complicated, and I'm trying to help you know what has ANY value.

Start: jewelry 
Stats people like:
FC1, FCR3,HCI, DCI,EP (EP adds lots of value due to pvp use),HCI, +15 or more usable skills, SSI, DI, multiple high stats ie. 8 DeX 8 str etc...

You will need a good combo of these to be valuable. Antique is OK here, it still sells well. Note: clean jewels with lots of these mods, will be rare and valuable. Jewelry is very template specific, so put it on a vendor and be ok with it sitting a month or 2.

Armor: 
Stats people like:
8+ stamina increase, 8+ mana increase, 5 hp increase, LMC 8, str bonus, dex bonus,Intel bonus, MR, HPR, damage or resist eater 10+% (fire eater cold eater energy eater etc), high total resist, LRC, DCI 5.
Note: brittle/ antique will lower value (still can be very valuable though with great mods)
Studded leather/bone sells higher because of LMC bonus
Clean armor with high mods will get higher price.

Weapons:
I rarely look for pvm weaps from loot because you can imbue custom weapons people need. 
Stats people like:
20+ splinter, 50 hit spell (fireball, lightning preferred), 50 HLD,50 HLA, SC,DI, 100% elemental damage)
NOTE: antique and brittle will lower value a lot here, they wear down fast in pvp.
Weapons values are GREATLY dependent on their special moves. People like: AI, dismount, disarm, feint, paralyze, mortal, poison, (add your other used pvp specials)
Swordsmanship is generally preferred because it has great special move combos on weaps. Mace and fence weaps really have to be good to sell. Clean bokutos with SC, splinter, hld/hla are the hot seller atm.

Shields:
Not sure I dont sell many


Again, feel free to add.

    Edit: when I say "clean" it means no brittle/antique on it. Prized is ok (its repairable)

    I saw someone looking for this, so I wanted to add it. This is a great way for new players to make money. High intensity low mod jewelry to be imbued is valuable. Example.....10 ssi 35 DI (NO other mods, no antique [prized ok]) could fetch 30 to 150m. The money is from the 10 SSI. There may be other valuable clean jewels if it's not imbuable.

    10 SSI with HCI and/or DCI jewelry can also be valuable. (Something like 10 SSI 20 HCI).

    10 SSI is also a good mod to look for on Shields. If you can get 10 SSI with HCI and/or DCI on a shield, those can be worth a lot.

    Shields that have Spell Channeling without -Faster Casting can also be worthwhile.

    antique on armor is junk brittle is fine it will last a very long time and too bad this armor and these jewels don't drop anymore because of complaining and script farmers which idc if they script farm more goods to go around and the more there is the cheaper it is find a no name stam item now with 5 dex 8-10stam 8 mana hpr, mr, lmc and decent resists it will cost you many plats if you can even find it and they ruined great mage jewels about impossible to get skill ep hci dci 1/3 ssi and dmg thanks @Bleak @Kyronix... again also thanks for nerfing all dismounts besides gargoyles too when the only problem was the no-dachi being so overpowered and being able to do a flying scripted no dachi foot no other dismount makes you heal you pet but lets mess up pvp more... pfft sick of these people who are part time pvpers messing it up for those who have played for 20 years just for pvp

    I thought this was for returning/new players to get started with and then upgrade as time/skills/better loot MOBs permit.  What may be garbage to you with all your ubber loot and gold out the wazoo is a lot different than a new/returning player has.  Tell them what the pros and cons are and let them make informed choices other than people telling them oh that is garbage noob why don't you just quit now.  I give new returning players lrc/lmc suits jewels spell book and a rune book so I guess by your definition I just gave them garbage because it is not leet.

    Once a long while, we get a nice surprise for a clean (POF-able) and almost perfect (95%) legendary replacement with desirable, imbued weapon specs.


    It should deserve 100% score if the Mage Weapon is replaced by HLD 50% instead.
    But since there is HLD 30 on the helmet, this is fine.

    The unfortunate truth about that staff is that you can craft a better one. That is why almost all weapon legendary are worthless for pvm. @Seth

    Oh, how do you do that? Even if you can reforge HMD 70 and HML 100 in one weapon, the imbuing would affect the rest of the specs because the sum already exceeded the max 600 points for bladed staff.

    Add intel +5, Mana +4, clean (no brittle, antique) and POF-able. How do you manage to craft this useless weapon? I can use it because its what I wanted to make all this time, :D

    A similar but less powerful imbued version of this was used to murder the Shadowlord in Ararat.

    @Seth - where did you loot that staff and what was your luck?

    It is from the Shadowlords at Ararat. The screenshot was taken on the BMV, the background is near the bow or front of the ship with ladders leading up to the top deck.

    Its a warrior so the luck was 1000 (honor) + 150 minax sandals + 19 year account luck from statue.

    Returning player after 11+ years. This is really helpful. People are mentioning luck from a statue. Is this like a virtue statue or something? I can't find anything online.
