Hi, this is not a serious problem, only a little disappointing (and odd)... there I was, fighting Cadmus and he nicely dropped a piece of equipment (Olympian ringlet). I already had one, and it was equipped. I wanted to sell the new one (to get gold for house furnishings, you understand ) but found that it did not enter my backpack. The backpack was not full, and I logged off the character and logged back on, but, nope, the item disappeared. I wonder if already having an identical item equipped confused the program?

Umm, Anne did you check all compartments of your backpack, the housing and ship equipment sections count towards the same item count as the item sections. The section that dropped items go into in your backpack may not be full, but if the housing or Ship equipment section is full, then you will still not pick up new dropped items.

Good point, Scarlet, but yes, they are not full, and I did successfully get a drop from the same character when I played the next day.

I think it is all the same limit. If say your limit is 100 then you do not get 300, 100 clothing, 100 ship & 100 housing. Unfortunately all you get is that original 100. I used 100 as an example because I know it is different whether you are a crowns player or subscribed.

Thank you, Jack, I appreciate your help. It wasn't a big deal, just an oddity, and only seemed to happen with that one item.
