    Just something I have noticed tonight as I was hunting in Shame is that we can also find the new loot in the open barrels in certain areas. One of the major areas is in level two,where the clay elementals spawn.

    There have been times when players would come in and clean out the barrels of the new loot. Which in itself isn't the problem. The problem I am having is that the same barrels also spawn torso's. The players that come in would drop the torso's on the ground to clear space for the new loot spawn.

    As all should know,these torso's act just like a gravestone or crate. You can't simply run or fly over them. It's either move them or go around them.If we get cornered and the only way out is to move four torso's from the entrance,that can cause problems.

    Best solution is to ask the Devs to remove the torso's from the barrel spawn list in Shame.

    possibly not, but isn't it easier for you to just drop them in a corpse than to ask the devs to change the coding which will have a snowball affect for other loot tables?

    Yes it would be easier for me to do so if I knew for certain that the change in code would cause a problem as you described. If they didn't remove the torso's,maybe instead could change the nature of the item itself. Allow it to have the same base property as a regeant.That way,no one will have to navigate around them or toss them on a corpse.

    That extra click and drag motion can really destroy your game experience. Let's also have monsters only drop top-end flawless loot so you don't have to sort through bad loot. Let also have Devs organize the boxes in our homes for us as part of their daily responsibilities. Let's have barrels of amazing loot spawn in our backpacks when we log in.

    How about we let Devs work on important things and you find something important to complain about? It's really sad you had to come cry on the forum for something so trivial.

    Talk about jumping to conclusions. All I am asking for is to make the torso's not spawn in the barrels or make them to where they are not a "solid" object so we can walk/fly over them.
