    Why is that player coprses if they have items on them last like 10 mins...you pack animals corpse is 3. I was moving bulk resouces to my mag vendor via pack horse that I had been collecting for the last cpl weeks. Of course. these ******** raiders with the story line. I die and packy dies. Friend comes to rez me but before i can my packies corpse. It disapearres. So around 36m later I am just frustrated and pissed at this game atm.

    Venting done. Now for a suggestion. How about pack animal corpses last as long as player corpses if there are still items on them? Say a good 10 minute timer. Alteast have it match player corpses...I cannot be the only person this has happened too....

    MANY a moon ago when resist spells actually mattered.....
    I was fighting an orc party in compassion desert, ended up dying and was unable to use the compassion shrine due to camping orcs.
    I had to run to Cove, took me forever to find it (not even 56k back when). By the time I made it back to my corpse, it was gone. My newly purchased "heavy archer set" heater shield of invuln and katana of power poofed.
    "How about pack animal corpses last as long as player corpses if there are still items on them? Say a good 10 minute timer. At least have it match player corpses...I cannot be the only person this has happened too...."
    I would offer to make all non-player corpses last twice as long; as player bodies effectively have a double timer (actual body, then bones). All while respecting the special "timer" on spawn area corpses and special monster corpses.
    +1 from me, thought it would not currently benefit/hurt me at all. Should not be that hard to change the duration of corpse code either!

    I've thought that for years. I can't tell you how many things I've lost because of that. I agree a packies corpse should last just as long as ours does.

    +1 from me too, i say extend that to if a mob loots you, it doesn't 'despawn', going poof, for 10 also, had that w/ Ophids, the entire group around me poofed, they just blink sometimes and are gone. but yeah, bonded packs should stay as long as a player's

    I have asked for this for 14 years and counting...
    IF you and your pet die ...... pet sprit goes one way, yours another for the healer. When and IF you can get to your body, dress enough to be able to protect yourself while looting your stuffed packie/ bug etc.. 99% of the time your too late or you get a small portion out of the animal before you loose the rest to decay... I want it to be bagged in the pet again! and extend the timer to get to the said pets corpse. :whip:

    Aye, I've been there too recently, went to look for silly gypsy camps in ilsh with me poorly dressed crafter just to bribe those silly NPCs for BOD upgrades n I forgot to empty me beetle's bag, got whacked by too many paragons and by the time I ran to nearest gate to rez n come back, me beetle's corpse was gone ... sigh, there goes my stash of crafter's talismans I've collected over the years since talismans was born and me fav one was my first ever talisman I claimed from the library which was a 30% alchemy bonus one ... :sad3:

    I have a worse one....if you die in an area like a rat spawn and get RUMMAGED...it's not terribly hard to make it back and the rats tend to not stray TOO far from your body.....but the mob bodys in such areas disappear in under a minute, meaning if you kill 2-3 at once you may not have time to open each and look for your gear before they poof...(which is really fun to do mind you when theres bodies everywhere)

    Not that it happens often but i've had instances of getting trapped when the mages spawn...or my personal favorite my internet disconnecting while fighting silver serps (that has the bonus of stat loss to fight baracoon with, lol)

    It just makes good sense for this to be.
