    I don't understand why cursed loot from shame leaves lootbags and goes to top level of corpse after death. Normal not insured loot stays inside bags which always drops to corpse. All cursed items cover everything after recovering body. I hate this!

    Only reason to move cursed items on death from bags is... possible blessed bags exist in game?

    Maybe cursed items are handled special when you die, maybe they are specifically searched for in your backpack and paperdoll and placed in your corpse before everything else.

    EC does this also. The items in the lootbag that are cursed will come out of the bag upon clicking your corpse.

    But way to promote the EC.

    The EC may solve the OP problem but it would be a heavy price to pay gamewise. I'll stick with the CC. :thumbsup:

    There was a way to get blessed bags… long ago, totally illegal… so no dice.

    In my exploration of this messy business, I just sock away all loot in a normal old bag and drop it in the public bank rubbish bin and get a good chunk of clean up points. Got over 2k in one run today. Not bad for rubbish I would otherwise totally ignore. :popcorn:

    While this is extremely annoying to have all cursed items ending in your main pack after you rez and loot your corpse, there is one (small) benefit to the way it is currently handled: a mob looting bags from your corpse does not actually loot their cursed content.

    what i do is, in my main pack i leave the lower left corner empty, then within my loot bag i stack all the cursed stuff in the lower left corner of that bag, that way it at least all stacks in a easy to see spot and not all over my pack

    i think cursed items are stupid and was a dumb idea..

    im seeing a lot of nice items that i would use but i wont cause they are cursed and they end up in the unravel bag.

    I'm not complaining about whatever balance they intend to achieve by having much of this stuff drop cursed. As far as I know (or care) it could be working exactly as intended.

    But it's definitely true that for me personally, it immedietely transforms ANY item no matter the mods into relic frag fodder. No consideration for use whatsoever..

    And it's interesting that it is true that its completely usable gear if you are always in Tram and always get your corpse back. I know this and lately I am usually in Tram, but still I just won't do it. I find it too objectionable both as a concept, plus, in implementation each of these items requires the suit to be built around it. I'd sooner be comparatively underpowered than use a key item with many stats in my suit which could vanish (leaving me with a big mismatched pile of gear).

    If this was intended.. good enough. If not... whatever =p but I won't wear cursed gear like, ever.

    Ive run across a few cursed items that are most likely going into a pvm characters suit. I think of it as this, I almost always have something worthless yet heavy in my pack for monsters to loot, so I doubt id lose the cursed item. And if I did lose the item Im only out a relic fragment or two.

    Also been watching for high mana regen loot for training/scribing.


    back to the original topic though, It would be nice if they could change the way cursed items drop when the carrier dies. Im sure its a quagmire of coding to try and change it though so I guess we will all have to get used to it.
