When you die, you now have a good chance of recovering most items engraved with your name. However, you will still drop all gold and unengraved items.I used two low-levels to test this.
The first test was with 5 engraved items and 15 deaths.
|Death||Items lost||Percentage of items lost|
The second test was 4 deaths with 7 items, plus a strap with 10 clubs. All engraved.
It's a rough test, but it's enough to get me not to bother carrying 50 engraved clubs around in the hope of having them drop instead.
This change will encourage players to try and get items back when dying, rather then logging off. One way to prepare for that is having a selection of engraved backup gear in neat stacks, ready to replace whatever you lost. Perhaps it's time to clean my vault...
I'm lucky there's no RSPCA in Aberoth.
