    I confirm what other people complained about.
    I have copied a character from Atlantic to Test Shard and a few hours later I
    noticed his great scrapper is missing from Atlantic. No other explanation possible, I didn't play him after copying.

    Do not risk your items until devs fix this.

    I made a account here to post same problem, never have used this site, long time UO player.

    I lost several items on my character using that character copy..

    VERY VERY BUGGED!

    I cannot believe the developers of this game passed this garbage.

    My issue has been resolved.

    The second I found out I am missing my scrapper I have paged in-game.
    The GM that came followed me to Test Shard and Atlantic, and in the
    end found the item and placed it back in my backpack.

    The warning should still stand until this is patched for good, but at least it's good to know this is not irreversible.

    thank you for posting! I did a Char copy soon as it went live, after seeing this post I checked and my Tome of Lost knowledge is gone . As it was on my thief char, I seldom equip it, hence why I haven't noticed it missing from my pack. Waiting on GM response as I write.

    So "only" books so far?

    Or have other types of items been reported missing as well?

    A big Thank you to GM Akemai! I went in que and reported my tome missing. Shortly afterwards, it was placed back in my pack with the message that it had been found!
    I checked my char and no other items seem to be missing, so I would say just spellbooks are all that are *poofing* on transfer

    Also had a spellbook disappear on me doing this. Just gotta open the character copy menu again and then close it and the item re-appears.
     
  10. It seems to be only spellbooks so far. I have done 3 char copies, even tho I knew the books were coming up missing and on all 3 copies, the spellbook I was holding would come up missing when I logged back into the non copy.

    Waiting for GM now ...

    Oops, haven't seen this one.

    But problem already fixed on both characters by GM Erthim.

    That's been really fast. Great customer support! Thanks

    GM Akemai helped me several times too. I couldn't sent a positive feedback to the customer service since they send you to a dead link for GM reviews. I guess he/she is one of the better GMs that we have, at least according to the reviews (12 good, 2 bad reviews, not bad :)):

    and some bad encounters:
