Alchemy Bug?

    I am trying to level Alchemy and I believe I am running into a bug that is seriously ticking me off. I have a potion keg and a single bottle in my backpack. Every so often when I am successful on a creation, the bottle will pour into the keg and consume the bottle. Poof, gone. Which means I have to stop, get another bottle and continue. This start stop thing is KILLING my grinding. Anyone know if this is a reported bug?

    *EDIT*

    So I just discovered the problem. If you grind too fast, the bottle drops out of your pack and onto the ground. I am grinding in a small room close to a staircase in my Keep and the bottles were hidden until the stack got high enough. *sigh*

    While I have never had a bottle *poof*, I have had them fall to the ground, if at max weight. Usually in my case, they fall and are blocked by a table or something, so they are hard to find.

    I remember GMing Alchemy a loooong time ago, hehe.

    In fact, it's the only skill that was on my second, older account I reopened.

    Alchemy can do strange things to your brain until GM! =P

    Hold more than 1 bottle?
    It's really not much of a bug that need's posting.
    How many time's have you used a coke bottle to be refilled with milk?

    Perhap's it went into the dish-washer.
    Either way bottles dont weigh what they used to so grab a 100 or so and problem solved, you can script train to your hearts content.

    Yes that is sarcastic as if your training by hand it wouldn't be a problem............bloody scripters complaining cos their scrips dont update as fast as were getting patches........:loser:

    um ... I gather you haven't used KR? (it can run into these sorts of issues with the "make X" / "make max" options)

    I think he/she deduced what a lot of us Non Mods did, that the OP had his/her pack filled to the hilt with regs, kegs, and 1 bottle, hit Play, and then went off to do whatever and the bottle dropped to the ground...
