    Ok. So, a friend and I were doing level 3 treasure chests.

    I also do level 1 maps alone. Outside the rare new vines… there really isn’t anything interesting. The blue scrolls… quickly sell. I have no other interest in them. It's all rubbish, for the most part. Those globby things… he keeps, no interest to me. All and all… I think it's nice they made these more interesting, but there is very little “super” items. Most of it goes to the unraveler. It's way more fun… and you don’t need to be a super hunter to have fun with the maps. You know.

    Today… our first Level 3, after cracking it open… I see something totally weird.

    It looked like the common scattered hay, you sometimes see on vendors or locked in people’s houses… however it was dark gray and labeled “dust”. I picked it up and put it in a bag, then put the bag into my friend’s trade window and opened it… so he could see. He was able to see it! But then it was gone. Vanished. No more. Item count removed from the bag. :sad4:

    I told him he breathed on it too hard… but clearly that’s not what happened. I was upset! I could always use dust in my decorating work.

    Anyone else see this?

    It is the remains of an item that was destroyed when a lock-picking attempt failed... there is some kind of message when it happens - but I forget the exact wording.

    Hmmmm. Well... I was on guard duty... not the picker, but it was only a level 3 and a GM picker can fail these days? I mean... I really love how we dont have to break 30 picks on a level 6 anymore.
