    So back in the day a thief could make a descent living from stealing powerscrolls at banks and champ spawns.

    Happy holidays from the devs, now players have just one more way to keep us thieves from stealing those scrolls.

    I will start the requests to unbless these items right now. Players can now attend a spawn or run to the bank without having to worry about losing their powerscrolls.

    Bah humbug...la

    They can't be used from a backpack. I do believe they need to be locked down to use.

    If that's the case...good. But the books should still be stealable at least on Siege.

    From all you are posting - you are always posting negative. Always posting that thievs are forgot. Now it dont seem you even play the game, just post.

    What is your problem? Go pay to play the game kiddo...or keep ur mouth shut up.

    If you had played it, you'de notice that you need to LOOK them down, not just secure them....to use them... And you call it a nerf???

    Keep your 'la' for yourself...

    First off ...la...la...la

    Now to the meat of your post. Sorry to disappoint you, but I do play and I do pay. The reason I didn't know that they needed to be locked down because the last time I was logged in, was right at the time the gifts were being distributed.

    I was on and heard via general chat that the gifts were being distributed, so I logged out and back in to get mine (on Siege). At the same time, I noticed a lot of activity at the Luna bank. People were logging in, so I started snooping.

    What did I see, a bunch of packs filled with developer gifts from years past along with the new ones. What did I keep seeing? BLESSED...BLESSED...BLESSED.

    Now I understand you may have difficulty understanding the thought process of a thief on Siege, but seeing all of those blessed items is infuriating. Blessed items and insurance is why I left Atlantic back in 2002. Now players run around with a bunch of items they have no need to worry about being stolen.

    In regards to the powerscroll books, I was mistaken. I did not know they had to be locked down in one's home to be used. I am thankful for that, but at the same time, all I saw was [blessed] in the title and thought...here we go again. So I jumped the gun and posted this...my bad, but for you to come here with your awful English and accuse me of not playing let alone paying to play...I am offended and your remark.

    *slaps Mandrake with his glove*

    LOL, sorry about that. I have been running around the shard for the last few weeks noting the available spots. Either I had missed that one (about 3 screens away from Brit guard zone) or the previous owner dropped their house recently. I couldn't pass that one up. I was a bit surprised I could find a 17x17 so close to town...la

    To be honest, as a thief, I initially felt exactly the same way when I received my gifts yesterday and saw Blessed tag. The only reason I too didn't raise hell immediately was that I happened to catch some conversation in Gen Chat about how to use the books. Powerscrolls, SoT and SoA are really the bread and butter for Thieves so it is only natural to get a little perturbed every time something is introduced that may or may not cut off that cash flow.
