    Is there a list somewhere on what the decay rates of items are left on the ground?

    Its about two hours or so. Some things don't decay. Some things decay very quickly. Everything else, two hours.

    3 hours, exactly. (for normal items)

    uo.stratics.com front page, right side, under Miscellaneous section under "Decay."

    Yea, it's terribly inconvenient for Player-run event decorators. Have actually had to practice setting up to get maximum placement speed for some longer events that crunched for time.
    One nice thing about the new EMs is they're usually willing to lock stuff down for events.

    Would be interested to, I lost about 1700ish items last week moving everything from my two smaller houses to my upgraded marble house, and I tried securing everything, but was about 2000 items over still, so while i was trying to organize and combine things etc, I realized 2-3 hours later about 20 boxes full of 100+ items went down to about 20-25 each, and I havn't really logged in much since then. Arties/PS's/weapons/armor/jewels. Ughhhhhh.

    Something to consider for events, or anything else, is if you pick up an item and drop it on a container it can't go in, like a runebook, it'll pop back to where it was with the decay timer reset.
