    Default Fix Broker My Bags

    Hello

    I never used the so called exploit and only found out about it after the patch today. You can check my logs and will see that this is the case.

    Was curious to see if it had been fixed so I checked to see what happens and now the damned game is broken because when I move items from my bank to my inventory items are lost!

    Yes lost!!!

    I am using the bank, the bags and the inventory in a manner that is perfectly legal for them to be used and now items are being lost

    You broke my game so please give me back my lost items - was just 2 silly items but if to fix an exploit you break a mechanism that is supposed to work you are skating on thin ice concerning my monthly sub

    Thank you

    Wow. This is... beyond belief.

    Has anyone else had similar experience? When I get home I will test it by moving something worthless out of the bank. Will check character bank, TR bank, and shared bank.

    It's very likely Lost and Found will pick up your items. Check the mail in a little bit.

    I've noticed a difference too. I finally got to destroy some bound to character bags that had been coming back to me for... forever. I thought I was cursed to forever have them taking up inventory space.

    I really hope this is the case

    I admit I read up on what has been happening and did exactly what was done pre patch to test so hopefully this is just a way to punish those who exploited before or to perhaps gather some info on exploiters but seriously this is something that could happen to the unaware so very easily

    Out of curiosity, were they all Clubs of the Holy Flame? If so, that wasn't Lost and Found

    My issue was not with moving a whole ingredients bag just with testing the "fix" ... the fix seems to have fixed the exploit (I say seem because I honestly don't know if it worked the way I tested it)

    But when I now move items from an ingredient bag to the inventory in a certain manner the stack being moved is depleted (and no I am destroying them)

    If I so wish I should be able to move 1 item out of a stack from my collectable bag into my inventory

    As an example I use different toons to hold different items / collectables etc ... if I wish to move one item from my ingredient bag to my inventory out of a stack it should not reduce the total I hold ...

    Pretty sure the "fix" was to roll-back a bug fix. So the current broken functionality is how it was broken for a while before the exploit (probably for quite a while, I think I read on the forum of this bug over a year a go).

    So, they should just put in a Known Issue/announcement about how to avoid the current broken feature.

    Thanks for the warning, I won't be playing the game until this is fixed or explained.

    Plenty of items are losing their value, I don't want to lose the items themselves because of a "hotfix".

    Well, if there is a rollback all that XP and quest completion and such that you've done from 19.3 to the rollback will get destroyed, so no point in playing anyway.

    Why would you even test to see if the exploit still existed anyways?

    I do hope your lost items are restored to you, but I just don't understand your initial reasoning.

    Maybe just to see if they've actually fixed something, right, the first time? Checking for end of days? The usual.

    Sorry, OP, but there is just no way you're going to convince me that Turbine might have broken something while attempting to fix something. That kind of thing just does not happen!

    Seems like the safest thing to do, if you wanted to test it, would be on Lammania..... but it's closed......... *weak*yaaay
