    I imbued a bracelet and ring to fit my character. They were hard to complete, but were just the thing to balance my toon. I had started with freshly made jewelry by my GM tinker.

    I forgot to insure em. Not usually a problem, as I am usually able to retrieve my corpse, at least in the past I have. I got slammed by a kepetch ambusher in the Tel Mur desert while low on hit points. My ghost got rezzed right away, and I went back to corpse. Nothing on it !! no aids, no bags, no jewels. The Kepetch appeared again right there, so I killed and looted it. No bags, no aids, no jewels. I ranged out and killed the mobs nearby (only 3) and no loot. I think that the Kepetch go back underground as soon as you leave the area. When they come back up, they no longer have your loot. Apparently a whole new instance of the mob appears.

    So beware. You can lose everything not insured real fast on some of these new mobs.

    Did you try logging out/in? (I've occasionally had some display issues after a res where items in my pack don't show up properly even though they were there - especially with special insta-reses like the silver sapling)

    I have not had any issues like you report.

    I keep getting a persistent issue of the Rune Book disappearing from my back pack and being greyd out in the hot bar.

    To fix it I simply close the back pack and reopen it.

    But from a use perspective it is clearly not in the back pack.

    It will normally occur when I use the book to recall to Luna, then it is no longer available.

    I constantly read stories like this on this forum and I gotta say - I've never had a single thing like this happen to me - what did you people do to your computers/uo install that makes this stuff happen? seriously

    here's 5gp, go buy a new computer or something - hehe

    do you like chew on your keyboard or something in your free time - I just don't get it - I never lose items - ever

    Something like this happened to me too, but it was not by a disappering monster.

    I got looted by Napolem the thief or whatever his name is. Fitting for his name, he looted everything but the boots of me. 4 stacks of bandies, full unraveling bag, bag full of reagents, bag full of potions, pile of gold. All in all, 300 stones.

    Killed him and what did I get back? A lousy stack of bandages. Everything else was gone and boy, was I pissed.
