Mods: I know this should be posted under the Besaid server forum but I feel I might have better luck contacting the owner here rather than under that forum. So I please ask you don't move this thread. Thank you!

While cruising around the market wards I spotted a ripped haubergon for sale, and immediately snatched it up. On Besaid these appear to go for 290-300K but this person had it listed for 30K. If I didn't buy it somebody else would have. Now I know it's rightfully mine seeing as someone obviously made a mistake on the pricing but I'd like to give the owner a chance to get it back. I know what it's like to mistakenly put something up for sale at a wrong price then curse yourself for doing so when you realize it's too late. The retainer is named Kokolo so if you or somebody you know has this retainer, please do contact me either by the forums here, or in-game. My character name is "Mihana Zhralyia". This was on the Besaid server.

To ensure it gets back to the proper owner I ask the owner meet me in-person on the game to exchange, do not send somebody in your place or use a mule, I will only exchange with the original owner. Also I will ask the owner to spawn the retainer in order to verify it is their haubergon. I will exchange the ripped haubergon for precisely what I paid for it: 30,000 Gil.

EDIT: Changed the title name to more accurately reflect the topic. Also, if a mod does feel this thread must be moved to the Besaid forums please leave a link to this in the main forums. Thank you!

Good to know that there are a few honest people out there. I can probably say that 99% of the time someone will buy it and think "What a noob..." and go on their merry way happy that they lucked out on someone's mistake. I am sure the original owner will be happy about this. I know I have made a few erroneous listings on FFXI before and smacked myself for it later. Rate up.

I wish someone had done this when I put my tattered robe up for 150k. I was ignorant as to how much it was worth at the time. I was too lazy to look up how much it was selling for on yellow gremlin and after it sold, I was just curious as to how close I was to the actual price. I found out it sells for over 1 mil. lol Oh well. I'm glad gil is easy to come by.

That thought crossed my mind as well. However seeing as most were listed for 300K (A couple were around 290K or above.) I'm convinced the 30K was a mistake. I'm gonna keep trying however, for now it'll just sit in my inventory untouched. If I can't find the owner or if they don't want it I'll probably donate it off to my linkshell for somebody to fix and use. I bought mainly just to see what my character looked like in a haubergon. And instead of re-listing it and trying to make a profit I felt I'd try to find the owner first. If they don't want it or intended to sell it for that fee then I can do whatever I decide to do with it having a clear conscience.
