White Dress: the forgotten, but unique rare

It is one of the least-known but most rare items in the game: the white dress. Only one of it exists in the game, which puts it on par with items such as the crown, warlord sword and magic longsword in terms of rarity. For many years, the white dress has not been shown in public. As of the 12th of November, 2017, however, the white dress has been in the rare collection of Sheepyy and is on display on top of his house in Thais, Antica.

Too Long; Gotta Hunt

  • The white dress was a wedding gift to a player called Prinzess
  • Only one white dress exists in the game
  • A player called White Dress offered the white dress for sale throughout 2017
  • Rare collector Sheepyy bought the dress on 12 November 2017, paying a golden helmet

Surfacing and subsequent sale of the white dress

There are only a handful of items on Tibia of which only one exists. Among these are the famed crown and warlord sword, but also the white dress. Not much is known about the item, as it has long gathered dust in the depot of an unknown trader. It resurfaced in 2017, when it was for sale on the Antican market for 800kk.

Sheepyy, a collector hailing from Antica, offered a golden helmet for the dress, which was valued at 550kk at the time.

This offer did not attract a buyer, which lead to a player going by the name White Dress (later believed to be Dyl) to offer the white dress for sale on the trade boards of Antica. The price did not drop however, but was increased to a staggering 1kkk (1000kk). The post attracted interest, but the price asked was deemed (far) too expensive by most.

Sheepyy, a collector hailing from Antica, offered a golden helmet for the dress, which was valued at 550kk at the time. On the 12th of September the owner replied to Sheepyy, stating he was offended by the offer, in his eyes being too low.

Although a discussion following the post ensued, a sale of the white dress did not seem near. On November 10th, however, the owner reduced his price to 750kk. Seemingly seeking a sale after months of offering the item, the door seemed to be opened to a new negotiation about the sale.

On 12 November 2017, Sheepyy bought the white dress on-stream for his initial offer of a golden helmet. He has since showcased the dress on top of his house in Thais, Antica.

The origin of the white dress

Although it is unknown at what point the white dress entered the game, we do know how it got into the game. During the early days of Tibia, presumably around 2002 or 2003, the white dress was a reward given during a wedding between two Gamemasters.

It is clear that the dress has resided on Antica for a while before being sold to Sheepyy.

One of the Gamemasters was Prinzess, an Australian player on Secura. It is thought that she was the first owner of the dress and has long kept this dress. Although no screenshots or videos have been found that show the dress on Secura, multiple players have confirmed Prinzess’ ownership of the dress.

The white dress was later seen on Zeluna, where Van Rodgan owned the dress and offered it for sale. Although it is unknown whether this is the same person as the one that later sold Sheepyy the dress on Antica, it is clear that the dress has resided on Antica for a while before being sold to Sheepyy.

Value of the white dress

As with many other rare items, it can be hard to quantify the value of the white dress. Although only one copy of the dress exists, it has no added value, like the strong golden helmet does. For that reason, the long discussion prior to the latest sale was hardly surprising.

Although CipSoft has added ultra rare items to the game throughout the years, this was rarely the case with items such as the white dress that have no practical use in the game apart from decoration.

Now being in the possession of the well-known collector Sheepyy, we will probably not see another sale (and thus, valuation) in the near future.

If you want to see the white dress with your own eyes, head over to Antica and visit his house at Upper Swamp Lane 8, Thais.
