Any help for a lost bow?

Post by Ramana Jala on Mon Nov 21, 2011 5:57 pm

I went into the desert tomb at Calithia's well, and was doing fine against the mummies until I encountered a really difficult mummy that I'd never seen before, a Mummy of Divine Wrath. Well, it apparently disarmed me, twice. First it disarmed me of my sword, and then it disarmed me of my bow. I was able to pick up my sword again, but the bow had disappeared.

I had recently acquired that bow and was very fond of it, it was a Fire Oak Bow, AB 3 Mighty 4 Cold res 10 and Qullin's spell, I think. (I had found it in a store, so I'm hoping it was an unaugmented item, i.e. it comes that way into the game and was not customized.)

I'm not sure that since it was apparently a legal Disarm on the part of the powerful mummy, perhaps I don't have any right to ask for it to be replaced. Although if the server hadn't disappeared it, I could have picked it up again, like I did my sword. So, since the server did disappear it, could I get it replaced? Or could I find that bow somewhere in the game again?

Thanks,
RJ

I may have one of those stashed away that I can give you when I see you online again.

Keep an eye on Lady Shae's inventory too, that's where they can be found sometimes as part of her randomized stock.

Great! Thank you, thank you, for the offer and the info! I'm glad to hear that it appears in Lady Shea's inventory from time to time. Now that I think about it, I think that's where I got it but I hadn't ever seen it before so I was concerned that it was not a stock item for her, but something someone had sold to her.

By the way, about Disarm: if one were to have a Custom-Voucher-made weapon, that is supposedly marked Undroppable, can it be Disarmed from you? I know that Undroppable Items can sometimes drop (like when your inventory is full -- I've dropped that otherwise-Undroppable quest reward Bow of Eagles a couple of times because of full inventory). So I was wondering if I get a Custom Voucher weapon that is supposedly marked Undroppable, can it be Disarmed to the ground out of one's inventory?

I've never much encountered Disarm (what a newb I am still), so it scares me about losing something special.

Last I had checked, no, voucher items aren't disarm-proof. In fact, I found that dropping a voucher item from a situation like a full inventory will break the non-transferable flag on the voucher item as well.

Thank you so much for the gift of the bow, Manny. I was so happy to get it back, and as it turned out, I was able to help another newbie with the gold I would've had to spend to replace it. So your gift passed on.

Thanks for the tip on the mummy disarming you. That shouldn't be happening, so I'll make sure to remove that feat from him. It's not game breaking for him to be able to do that, but it's a huge hassle if an item gets cleaned up by the module's scripting before it can be picked back up (which might happen if you died and went to the Great Hall for too long before returning to where you died).
