    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    First couple times I thought it was a fluke. No one is friended or co-owned to my house other than my other accounts. First thing that disappeared was a mailbox that had a bunch of 2013 Easter Gooses and other items in it. I was annoyed but not horribly concerned.

    Next thing, a box full of repair deeds *poofed* disappeared.

    Today - About a week ago i had set up stuff to start working on my vendor house. The vendor house has all my dye tubs locked down. I logged in last night, dye tub that had been raised as high as it could go was there (Metallic Leather Dye Tub). I log in today, and it's gone.

    This is really starting to frustrate and mystify me. There is no rhyme or reason to the things that disappear. And - for fact here - i know the dye tub was locked down because I raised it and haven't touched it since then. Anyone else having similar issues?

    Same thing happened to me. I just transfered back from Atlantic to Great Lakes, had all my stuff in a house. (Then customized, didn't like it and recustomized...) I always double or triple check to ensure I lock stuff down or secure it. I make sure nothing pops under the sign, I'm usually always very careful. This time, I checked my lock downs before customizing, 2900 free, and after, 3033 free.

    Now, how does 100~ lockdowns just up and vanish? I don't know, and I didn't get a gm response for 2-3 days later. I lost all my soulstoned skills, my veteran rewards (armor/weapon engravers, retouching tool, dye tubs), and all my clean up dyes and hair dyes. Just goes to show don't put all your important stuff in one box? :( I asked for a mythic token (nowhere near the 120 provoking, 120 blacksmithing, imbueing, 100 cartography and 100 lockpicking that I can remember I lost) and was just disappointed with a no. I never ask for stuff, I just don't feel like reworking some of those skills, why should I have to?

    Sorry you lost your dye tub, I lost mine too :(

    I honestly think I'm more upset about the mailbox missing that had 12-14 easter gooses in it and other items.

    dumb question, cause I'm sure both of you did it, the moving crate was checked?

    this has been going on for a while now, a bit disheartening

    Yeah I customized and forced everything possible on every tile into crate and it still wasn't in there. As much as I love customizing and decorating, my experiences with it has been with custom only houses. So I think I'm going back to classic, again. :/

    Yup.

    And even though it's been happening in my keeps and castles, I checked the moving crate. It's completely gone.

    I've have boxes with bags of repair deeds set up for my vendors. Logged in a week after I filled a bag with 120 blacksmith deeds. They've vanished.
