    Hello all,

    Not sure whether this has been raise before, but.........

    As part of my house decoration I had place a Corroded Box. Today I decided to do a spot of remodeling which required the removal of the box ...... Only problem was however, I could not pick it up!!

    At first I thought I may have placed it too high and it was out of reach, however despite my best efforts it would not not allow me to pick it up or move in any way:sad3:.

    So I called a GM for assistance - He arrived within minutes:thumbsup:. He proceeded to explained that as a Quest item, it was not suppose to have been removed from my back pack and certainly not place as a decoration item. His only option was to destroy it:violin:.

    I requested that he not do that just yet as I would like to seek further confirmation from other players and he agree:thumbup:

    So here I am - asking whether other have had any problems with the Corroded Box?

    Thanks Mezzac

    PS Another good reason for a second opinion is that he may have been confused :shots:.........

  2. The GM had no freaking clue what he was doing, and should be flayed with a cat-o-9 tails for almost destroying the box. Jeremy herself put up instructions on what to do with these boxes, and said they were working on trying to fix them.

    To pick up all of the corroded boxes you may have:

    Lock it down, then use the house deco tool to turn it and you will be able to pick it up.



    I can't help ya on the other thing.....

    Wow, That is both funny and sad all st the same time. Have you thought about customizing your home to move it to the moving crate? Try turning it with a deco tool and then try to pick it up?

    looks like it's already been turned?

    *dashes off to check her dirty boxes*


    okay, yeah, facing that way you cannot pick it up, facing south you can

    From the :scholar:

    Thanks a Lot Connor - worked a treat!!:bowdown: I'm just glad that the GM gave me the opportunity to seek a second opinion :). Would have been a great waste otherwise.

    Thanks Mezzac

    so we're all politely ignoring that the GM was unsure of which world he was in, yes?

    This coming from a person that would blatantly lie to the community, as you did? And then defend it as you did?

    Wow...seems a little...a little...

    Skewed is about all I can say without violating the RoC...


    But it does seem to show that they have likely spread the GM staff too thin. That's for sure.

    Hail: I am going to do something i do not think i have ever done before, TAKE THE SIDE OF THE GM. :D

    Having done tec support before i know that if the knowledge base for the players is years out of date, then the tec support base for the GMs is also out of date. So, it comes down to that indivudual GM playing expierience. Most of us never had a corroded chest, and if it was ME, i would also have no clue as to what to do.

    There are Soooooooooo many bugs and things that just do not work correctly in this game as to boggle the mind. Do you know how thick the GM Repair book would need to be to have every single issue in the game listed inside it?
    It is not the GM, but the support from upper management for the GM.:scholar:

    GM could have at least hit the macro that said "Ultima Online" rather than "Darkfall", love2winalot

    :sad4:

    especially after not knowing the answer to the question

    No wonder they don't seem to know much about UO - they are all DAOC GM's.

    Someone should page in UO asking why their Firbolg Blademaster can't gain experience. :p

    I would love to see a screen shot of THAT conversation. Too bad I don't know enough about the other games to string them on in that way...

    Not that I advocate wasting GM time of course... :scholar: ;)

    gm just gave me a new box right off. heard about the turn thing later on. just an example of how often 'game master' doesn't mean anything. i was pleased how my situation was handled (oddly) but goes to show you also that who you get means something.

    Gms have worked multiple games for years. They also handle the pogo.com stuff I believe, and used to do the sims stuff. He hit the wrong g'bye macro, but on top of not knowing the answer to the question (I didn't either, what is a corroded box? lol) it's pretty humorous.
