Insurance bug

    I went to the blighted grove as I hadn't been there before, was looking around and ended up targeted, by some 4 headed thing that was moving fast. I go to leave, and run up the wrong way and end up in a little room with harpies and evidently bad air. Long story short, my mage lost everything. When I went, I left anything behind that I didn't want to insure or need, and thought no problem everything else is insured.
    Get to brit and after a rez, find nothing but my earrings, and my rune books. My casa, rune beetle carapice, boomstick, shield, glasses, casting jewels, 100% lrc suit all gone. I'm sick. I don't get to play for hours on end, so replacing all that will take more time than I want to think about at the moment, some parts I probably never will replace.
    When I do, what should I aim for, what pieces should I am for?

    Yes when I went to insure a new tunic, I saw that it said "cancel renewing inventory insurance". So then I thought maybe I didn't have enough money in the bank and I missed the msg when I died. I went to check that out and I had plenty to insure what I was wearing.
  4. What shard are you on?
  5. Auto renew is different then cancel.
    Ive accidently clicked it off.
    Usually when everything is gone that is what happens.

    That being said. If your on atlantic, Ill give you a few million to replace some stuff.

    Whether or not its an insurance bug or not, really doesnt matter. So the offer is open.

    I am on Chessy. Thanks for the generous offers. What I am wondering is what pieces are worth going after again. Can the rune beetle be found anywhere? I can't remember where I got the boomstick, and is it worth it to get the sheild I think it was from the vesper. I'll get the glasses again but that will take time. Are there other suits or pieces that would be better? If I'm going to rebuild I might as well make it better.
  8. The RBC & Kasa you'll have to buy unless you've got Tokuno minors you can turn in for them. Last time I checked the RBC was running around 2.5mil on Pacific and the Kasa around the same. Boomsticks can be found for around 150k or so. The armor and jewels of course you'll either have to use your own stuff or find some around on player vendors. You should be able to put together a halfway decent LRC suit for no more than 250-500k depending on the economy on Chessy. The earrings you can farm points for and have them in a day or 2 for no cost. The shield you'll either have to buy from someone, or go out and start chopping trees.

    I have been bitten by the insurance bug twice. But each time I only lost a single item. This is unfortunate, but it sounds more like a renew insurance mistake.

    Sorry for your troubles.

    I KNOW from first hand experience that it IS a bug/exploit. Bug on Tram-side and exploit on Fel.

    My sis was taking her alchemist to a friend's FEL Yew gate house to crank out poison potions for him. She got ganked twice buy bunch of reds 12 to be exact! :gee: How many reds does it take to kill a non-fighting char? Anyway she knew this would happen and took the precaution off making sure everything she was wearing was bless or insured. She checked and made sure that auto-renew insurance was turned on. She also put a mill check in the bank for insurance.

    First time she got ganked all stuff stay on her like it was suppost to, BUT the second time she lost everything that wasn't blessed! She checked as she put each piece back on everything was still insured. Surely to god one pk didn't use up a mil.

    So it only leaves ONE conculsion...Exploit/cheat.

    I'm wondering if its not the same bug in fel and its being exploited.

    Sadly, sis did post this on here and usual UHall fashion she was ignored because she'd never posted before.

    Anyway sis tried to ask about and warn others it still exsists.

    P.S. Thanks to Omnicron she got everything but her twilight earrings back.

    heh, sounds like you forgot to reinsure. thats a common mistake. folks often like to blame other things but if there were a real insurance bug/exploit it would be used on people with much better stuff...

    it's always semi-new folk with mediocre items claiming theres a bug...
