    I found a new player that just started today that says she is showing 202 stones of weight with an empty pack and all clothing/armor removed. Young status was renounced and she went to try lumberjacking. She tried to pull some logs out of her pack and drop them, they disappeared, and now she is showing the weight with no inventory.

    Anyone heard of this type if thing happening recently? Ideas?

    recently I'm experiencing some problems with weight...
    for example if I pick 50 heavy powder, until I keep it on cursor its weight is double.
    If I take 20 new fishes from a stack their weight is 20, if I recall away the right weight is restored and I'll be stucked.

    Never heard nothing about woods, but try to recall away maybe the weight will be fixed or at least try to die (in the worst case it works too). In the most bad cases you have to page a gm... however if the character is just made, make a new one and avoid the gm call times :D

    I experienced something similar the other day. Was fighting in the gauntlet, and was suddenly showing as 150 stones overweight - but I could walk without loss of stamina. It remained that way for several rooms, so I had no idea how much weight I was actually carrying. I never did get overloaded, even though my weight said that I was.

    I was guessing it was a weight bug based on something casting on me... like, I got weakened and it just wasn't displaying properly.

    I have heard that chars have a "ghost pack" a pack all your blessed items go to when you die. I have also heard sometimes things get stuck in it that shouldnt be there, bandages, ore, wood, ect and that some times insured items can get stuck.

    What i would do is page a gm. Watch the ENTIRE loansome dove saga then come back and your wait should be just about over to have them fix your issue.

    Imagine if you had a ghost pack full of potions after the new changes. That could be why you're suddenly noticing your weight issues.

    I had this happen 3 days ago, and it was a pile of gold that just got stuck. Even had someone else log on my account in the SA client to check as well, and still the same issue, wouldn't show up but yet my weight was stuck at 280 stones.

    Paged a GM and they came and fixed it in about half an hour though, and haven't seen it again since.

    Also, dying, switching subservers, trying to spend it, etc did nothing, it was legit stuck.
