Not sure if this is a fresh issue after the latest patch but I have not had this problem until recently & then TWICE in 3 days.
While hammering star metal & training my newest Dina by the Frost Temple I was mobbed by 3 sabretooths & the boss fang face… I died. After realizing I hadn’t dropped a sleeping roll at that closest base, I got back in a few minutes with some reasonable armor & another thrall to recover my goodies… except my corpse was showing on the map, but NOT on the ground. I crept around the icon’s location hoping to see my corpse’s inventory appear but no luck. I eventually died there again from the catnip fueled evil kitty rampage & retrieved the junk from that recent corpse but LOST everything from my original corpse (checked Event Log after a brief whimper).
Aside from Flawless Barbarian armor bits I also lost a couple pieces of Champion armor and the following:
- a legendary Ymir heavy helmet (cold)
- legendary Mammoth boots
- Reach of the RM
- Final Breath of the RM
- Black Buragh’s (?) shield (+5 agility)
- Solspeil shield (+20 cold)
- Predatory Blade
- Yog’s Touch axe…etc.
That same night, a co-op buddy & I cleaned out the Unnamed City a couple times but didn’t replace anything. I did have a spare Final Breath torch & Predatory Blade at a base so that helped my pain.
Two nights later I went back to the Unnamed City to grind away again. My trainee thrall (level 14) & I eventually killed the Red Dragon BUT I died just before & when I returned I again could NOT find my corpse in spite of it being clearly marked on the map & in open ground. I did reclaim a Reach of the RM… but lost the other 2 valuables in exchange & I’d have rather kept the Final Breath & Predatory Blade.
Has anyone else had issues with their inventory-rich corpse disappearing from the visual even though it shows on the map? Reminds me of a similar issue last year (& yes, I ran out of render range & then back & also restarted the game).
Also, but unrelated, the Red Mother was an unintentional beyotch to kill - she kept wandering away from the fight with my thrall & I as I was luring her onto the sands out of the corruption zone. It was like if we got too far from her ‘spot’ she’d just forget we were attacking & zoom back to home with a very RAPID health regeneration (i.e from around 50-60% health she’d be back to 100% in a few seconds). Her movement was also bizarrely exhibiting levitation & zooming lunges over a much great distance than she used to do in the past dozens of times I’ve had to farm her.
Steps on how to reproduce issue:
- Die in glorious battle.
- Smugly assume you can retrieve all your awesome & well-nigh irreplaceable inventory.
- Discover you cannot access your corpse in any way.
- Sobbingly guzzle more Irish whiskey & then look for some English people to punch… (I’m Canadian, but you know…)
