I'm not really sure where you got the 1 wicked axe for herons from.
Given wicked axes are currently (easily) trading 2 for 1 for other rares after the game was flooded - and herons typically trade 2 for 1 for other rares that the people actually want (note how noones interested in fucking darkened tridents for them?) I don't see the issue.
I know of at least 3 players who literally filled their rents with rares (and that doesn't include me, most of mine are already gone) over the christmas period and they're just the ones who were vocal about it on DS.
And yes - if I had the eq I'd take almost any of these trades.
I'd try and bargain the 4ea wicked axes down to 4ea rares, or a good rare and 2 wicked axes. Or even 2 good rares.
I wouldn't take the lace shirt trade atm purely because I don't have any setups or chars it would be useful on. If I did I would do so.
If I had the sets of eq I would definitely trade (and heck if someone wants to give me the cash to get those I do have out then I'l happily do so).
I've had shit luck/lack of skill being charge in the last year or two so I'd make the shocker for axes trade. etc. etc.
Probably the only thing here I wouldn't do is the obsid staves or spheres - and thats purely because I really want some.
It may also be worth mentioning that I've seen almost every one of these trades (or an iteration that would add up to them or better) go through in the last few weeks.
Many thanks to those who read the post and considered what they actually wanted to trade, and then traded with me.
