Insurance bug still alive and well...

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Old Man of UO, Nov 17, 2008.

  1. I lost a crimson cincture this weekend... not sure why I am even posting this except to say don't wear or use anything you can't afford to lose. I just bought another one, but had to hock an agapite runic hammer that I was saving.

    I had 6.5 mil gold in checks, 100K in gold stacks, auto-insure on, and when I sacrificed to rez myself I got everything back except my CC. I have been wearing the samd CC for over a year, and ya it was insured. I had over 20 insured items on me while trying out various weapons and I got everything else back.

    Just disappointed is all, and I'll still play when the lag lets me... *kicks a rock*
  2. Why wouldn't you bless it? Just curious :)
  3. Never really thought about getting a CBD for it... what I would have to spend for the deed would have been more than I spent on insurance. But it was rather more of an annoyance having to manually dress any blessed items instead of clicking on my body. Now that I have KR and its nifty dress macro, that really isn't an issue.

    It's a good suggestion and I am looking for one now... although that really isn't the point.

    Not really the point - and not necessarily the answer... the "insurance bug" is not limited to insured items and can it blessed items too. My brother lost a pair of Leggings of Ember to a looting monster, but was able to get them back!

    I'm so glad im not the only one this is happening to! I always make sure to keep 100k in stacked gold in my acct for insurance, i check it every day. But sometimes, particularly when fighting event bosses like sicarii or melissa, i die and some insured items stay on the corpse! It even deducts the money from my account! And with event bosses, its all or nothing; either i get everything back, or nothing at all. Its getting so that i'm afraid to even use my better suits.

    I'm starting to feel like the tragic client in a John Grisham novel... maybe the Rainmaker...

    Oh crap! What are you going to do without your items!?!
  7. you ain't alone ... there are more than a few of us who have benefited from the experience. In both rulesets.
  8. Two days before that, I was running through Trinsic and had a BLESSED Rose of Trinsic stolen by one of the criminal NPCs... I saw it pop out of my backpack and whacked the NPC to get it back.

    Maybe this is some Dev's idea of humor...
