buying velious .....
« on: October 05, 2003, 09:13:19 am »
ok i been trying for a little while to get it and no one here seems to stock it .....

the cheapest i have found so far (not including ebay and i dont trust online auctions for things that are basically selling a CD key) is EBgames .....
Qty   Product Name  Each   Total  
1  EverQuest: The Scars of Velious Jewel Case
(SKU 227255)  Usually Ships Within 24 Hours  $9.99  $9.99  
      Shipping Cost:  $29    
 
Shipment Total:  $38.99


thats like AU$75 .....thats a lot.

so i was wondering if anyone here knows a good place i can buy it with not so much shipping cost (sony wanted US$39 shipping ..)



anyway thanks to anyone who can help.

Dont know if this can help you but both when Kunark/Velious came out I asked friends if US to buy it for me, mail me the CD number and put up the game as ISO's on a FTP from where I could download it.

Cant remember what the game cost back then but it was the cheapest (and fastest) way I could find.
Actually a friend in US bought 12 (!) copies of Velious when it came out, for us in guild who was living abroad.
Think we used a online paysystem like "Paypal" to solve the economic part.

Have you asked your local game shop if they could get a copy for you?

Aye, I would suggest ordering a copy through a local computer game shop.

Alternatively, you may be able to find a copy of one of the bundles locally, like Everquest:Evolution.  These are similar price to buying an individual expansion, and contain a set of CDs with separate keys for each expansion.

If you are missing more than one, this is the way to go, and availability will be much better.

I thnk a bundle with all expansions goes for some 30-40$ here if needed I can buy it for you. Mail you the key and put it on ISO like Clea suggested. Just for you to DL or if you are willing to wait I could send it to you. Will takle a few days but I dont think the sum will end up around 75$ though

Send me a PM if you are interested.
