    My mage has some runic crafted leather gloves, which I have been using for months now without any problem. This week, the gloves suddenly dropped into the corpse when I died in three different PvM situations on different days! (Enough gold in the bank, item was definitely insured and still was insured when I grabbed it from my corpse.) The gloves were the only insured item that dropped.

    I uninsured and reinsured the item, and it still drops to my corpse every time I die!

    If a developer wants to investigate, don't hesitate to contact me.

    Hm, worth mentioning, as long as we're talking about insurance-related bugs.
    Not as sever, but had two or three instances when my imbued, insured woodland arms got sent to my bank box after I died. Only the arms, nothing else. Only after I died, and I wasn't even carrying a Bag of Sending.

    SM,

    Standard questions...

    Were you close to max weight?
    Were you wearing any item which boosted your strength?
    Did the arms require a greater strength than you naturally possess?

    While I'm sure UO peeps will read this, better to go to THEM with the info directly rather than wait here with a post.

    O yeah that happened to my mage 2 wk's ago at the gate. Just finished his suit, grabed them outa the chest and armored-up, ck'ed the insurance menu and had loads of loose gold in bank but still went to body and even still said insured on them when they were looted. All I got back outa the multi-mil's I put in the suit was my gloves. Total bull****:sad4: Then the toon had to talk **** in chat bout it. more BS

    Hawkeye,

    If I can rattle off a few questions:

    Were you under the influence of any spells or effects when you died?
    Can you give us the specs on the gloves?
    Do you recall where you were, if not exactly, then as close as you remember?
    What were you fighting at the time?
    Do you have gold in the bank, or just checks?
    What race is your char?

    I wonder if it is possible to have the auto-renewing insurance not work for certain items....

    In my experience with this if I have checks in the bank and not enough gold this can happen I always make sure and leave a couple of piles of gold there!

    I sincerely hope you actually sent this in both through bug report and even a PM to some of the devs here instead of actually expecting them to read this and contact you...

    agreed, bank checks don't seem to work with some npc vendors as well (IMHO should be changed ... money is money)

    I am not sure how to reproduce it but its diff happening. Here is what I noticed about the bug:

    Having a diff char insure an item then the char who is currently wearing/using the item.
    Insuring an item from the insurance menu.
    Getting killed while your lagging or disconnected.

    I had it happen to me last night while doing doom. I lost connect came back dead got rezzed and then double clicked my body and saw my resist were way off. I searched the body of the monster that killed me and my gordet was on its body and still said insured on it.
