    I transfered an item from Atlantic to Rares Fest and back. The item has a Personal bless deed used on it by me on a different character. I just got killed and the item dropped to my corpse and I cannot take the PBD off it. I paged a GM but don't know if I can stay logged in for the 2 weeks to get one to show. Anyone else ever have this issue?

    I have had this issue before, and the only way i have had it fixed was to wait for the GM to show.

    Another example of something that takes priority over Publish 81.

    No, but I remember using my personal bless deed on a Golden Platemail Tunic one of my best friends gave me and locking it down in their house one night. (When houses were still kinda hard to get, sometimes you shared with your homie(s).) As fate would have it, we were all extremely drunk IRL. I had magery and swordsmanship on my character. I wanted to raise my swordsmanship. I had skill points all over the place on that character, so I started toggling arrows down so I could gain swordsmanship. Many hours of smashing dragons to bits and pieces and half a 30 pack later I decided hey I'll go drop this epic loot I got off at the house in game. My golden plate mail tunic was not where I had locked it down. I looked high and low, and I could look in each box too, that baby was gone. I was too drunk to panic, and just unloaded my collected junks, and went to my friend's room in the real house, and noticed they were passed out drunk at the keyboard. I decided it was best if i just went to sleep myself. I had to be at work in like 2 hours and 30 minutes anyhow.

    When I awoke, my head was throbbing, and all parts of my body were aching and I had no idea how I was going to make it through work. But I got there, and worked my butt off, sobered up some and thought all day how awesome it was I got to spend all those hours killing dragons and leveling my swordsmanship up, and couldn't wait til my mage swordsman was complete. These thoughts of finally being able to skillfully chop up the badguys and cast gate travel for the good guys and heal stuff with healing. I was going to be epic. All with my Golden Platemail Tunic my bestest friend evar made for me that I used my personal bless deed on. I got home, peed.. and sat down at the computer screen. I logged in. I was READY to go and finish working up swordsmanship! To boot, I was going to start by gate travelling myself to destard too. I cracked open the rune book, hit the gate travel button and *magic fart noise*. I blinked. I thought surely this is an error. I cast it again and it fizzled yet AGAIN. By this time my passed out friend had awoken FINALLY. He came to my room in the real house we were living in. He was excited, he finally got some runic hammer of some such he had be working to get or something. I dunno what he was talking about really.. my ears were ringing.. my heart was racing.. things were not looking good. I opened my skill tab up and looked and my magery was like 86.somethingornother and I realized how stupid I must have looked running around drunkenly fighting dragons the night previously and some of my other skills I thought I had turned down were turned up so I was gaining things like meditation and a mysterious point of camping. Camping. I wanted to die. Nothing could destroy this moment any worse than this. I looked at my friend James and was like hey man. Have you seen my Platemail Tunic you made me?

    "Oh no man, oh god man.. oh man. oh god oh man.." And he looked down at the ground, I looked down at the ground. We looked down at the ground. We were both like rest in peace golden plate mail tunic with personal bless deed attached to it. Rest in peace. In his drunken stupor he smelted it for ingots. We were too drooling drunk to realize what either of us had done. Anyhow. I hope this story helps displace some grief you must be experiencing due to the nature of your problem. Meow.

    Just a thought but I have had a couple of occasions when I have tried to pick something up and couldn't - what worked for me both times was a quick log out and in.

    Im Confused, u used another char and his Personal Bless deed to bless and Item while he had it - then transfered it to this char?

    Now you want to remove the bless deed with the char not on the name?

    LOL - transfer it back to the original char and then you have to call a GM if the original char still cannot remove it, when you cross sharded the item the tag changed ad a GM has to fix it.

    If it is still on the char that isnt on the bless deed well you are SOL until you get it back into the hands of the actual blesser.

    Lets see. Own a Voice of the Fallen King with anothers PBD on it. One those cases of quitter selling everything and putting all their PDB on the better items.

    Para gank bug and my archer's PDB weapon falling to corpse. Like those with that tactic would return ilgotten items.

    Enhance break early days. OOPS, PBD gone.

    UOAssist recycle lacking a bless blocker mishap.

    Balance, Risk vs Reward, Goldsink w/insurance based off item imbue weight. All players get 4 PBD and those that have one already in game - get 3. New PBDs are titled differently. Current insurance is increased by x100. Item drops farmed for selling at 20+ mil will be worth 20 mil in time and not because gold is worthless. Wont make a dif about templates and uber gear that players run to solo bosses. In time players will want to group hunt so they can safely chance hunting with uninsured items. PVP will be less the "Wham Bamm, Thank You for the fish" fighting that is today. Gearing down so as to not making the zerg babies rich will make PVP skill based again and fights last between honest duelers. Wont be the age of the Tamer while still can outrun butt dragging pets. Be the age of the Mule and vendors filled with cheep low end runic GM Lore crafted Light Imbued gear. Should be a market for gear that don't require a week of mat gathering, day of GM crafting those perfect starter numbers and spend $10 at the store for enhancing to makes something players would buy. Would be a reason not to trash all those fished up Driftwood bows when they could be no worry loss, got another. At least a reason for wanting to turn off auto-renew. Tweeking your gear math will include insurance factor. Uber god gear that is a must to insure will be worn as the Sunday's Best on special occasions. Math would be (R vs R)+(insurance crutch)x(Goldsink)= future better UO. Those that cry and don't see the math want to play UO with that supersized Easy Button. There should be a reason they should never have to put Slasher size walls in the game that a solo player will treat as a hurdle. There should be competing community hunt leaders/guilds. And not one leader chatting to the one player that does show and canceling that nights hunt. End to new players getting on chat looking for a PVP or PVM guild and getting no answer.

    Nothing added to UO will help the game more untill they do ingame stings and perma bann accounts related to gold sites. Also ingame trap/stings to perma bann accounts bending in game mechanics or using hacks. Hands on catches with YouTube video captures leaks titled Morons In UO will go way further then any software. There done venting, and time to go to work. Wasn't till nothing in UO interested me anymore that I got bored with being retired. Fishing RL or fantasy can only fill your time so long before it gets old.

    You could try a PM or something to Mesanna if waiting on a GM don't work. She fixed mine.
