Player corpse rot modified?

Postby Thilindel » Sat Apr 11, 2009 12:29 am

Had a corpse rot in 2 hours or less. To my knowledge, nobody touched it. So lost xp, and some eq that was on the ground got looted. Whatever happened to the 18 hours?

Now, i'm an old fart, so things totally could have changed, but i _BELIEVE_ the old formula used to be 1 RL hour per PC level. I'm fairly certain there was a minumum of a couple hours also. Not sure if timers get reset or what with crashes. It used to be each crash removed all preservation attempts on a corpse, but i believe that got changed.

There hasn't been a change to rot. If you petition the name of the corpse and the approximate time of death we would be happy to investigate your issue.

It would help to have corpse set at 18 hours, whether touched or not. I didn't know someone partially looted, so I lost the corpse, which sucks ballz.

Corpses used to rot after about 2 hours. Truth be told, I'm not sure why it was changed to 18 - takes away the mad panicky fun of trying to retrieve corpses. I'm also not sure why once it became 18 why it made a difference if the corpse is touched or not.
Having said all that, the situation has been handled, so this thread is pretty much at an end. -Kossuth

Down with corpse rot!

Give me my eq back or the name of the thief!

Don't blame me because you aren't an interesting person and have a problem finding anything to talk about.
