View Full Version : Game Mechanics: Can't loot corpse
04-18-2010, 02:54 AM
I started a necro Saturday and had several times where I could not loot my corpse. I relogged and it worked until that night. I relogged to desktop 3 times and no luck. I then rebooted my pc and still no luck. I get the error,"You may not loot that corpse at this time."
I gave up after that. The char's name is rhik, a DE necro in nek forest. I'm camped next to the unlooted corpse.

Now that is an interesting problem. I'm not sure why that corpse even exists. I couldn't loot it either.
So, there's two corpses that look exactly the same. 1 of them you can interact with, and the other you cannot. Summoned your other corpse, which is identical next to you, and res for the troubles.

Hi, I think I'm having the same problem. My druid Asara was at the bank in Greater Faydark when I had a lag spike or something. For a second the game sped up and I fell to my death before I knew what happened. I found my body, but when I try to loot it, it says "You are too far away to loot that corpse. You cannot loot that corpse at this time." I'm camped by the corpse.

Hey guys. Same issue. Same class, same zone. I died, and when I attempted to loot my corpse after the short corpse run, I didn't have permission to loot my corpse. GM Papaver, who is a super cool dude, yo, tried to assist but unfortunately there was nothing he could do and the corpse was truly locked down.
Regarding details. I had previously created a character with the same name. I died, and couldn't find my corpse. I then deleted that character, and created another with the same name (the character in question). I then died again, this time was able to find my corpse, and when I tried to loot I didn't have permission. It's possible that looting rights were somehow bugged because of an existing corpse of a deleted character with the same name as the current character and current character's corpse. You follow me?
However, I don't know if corpses despawn or remain once the character is deleted. I think they are deleted, but I can't be sure. Anyway, there is the issue. If you have any more questions, you know to ask. Thanks, bros.

How soon after you deleted did you make new character? Sounds like you found the original corpse of the character you deleted. It will not let you loot that one. Possible your second death was in another location?

It was minutes after, but naw brah, I didn't find the original corpse of the first character I deleted. Death one was in the middle of the zone, death two was on the zone wall.
