You might be mixing your brain signals between being able to interact with a quest npc..

I remember this too though.. but I also thought Sinbad was in a movie where he played a genie.

If people are able to recharge items at vendors, then someone invis has just as much right to scoop those items up if they're available.

Easy fix is to use an out of the way merchant. The guy on the RnF forums posting on getting recharge items taken was using a Gypsy merchant that is HEAVILY frequented. Took no precautions. Several out of the way vendors to do this on safely. This practice certainly doesn't need any dev involvement to "lock" vendors or some such. It's not classic anyway, not to mention completely unnecessary.

when someone was using a merchant on classic he would say he was busy, just like only one person could open a forge.

I got burned, lesson learned. I just didnít realize that being a piece was so heavily supported on p99, so I didnít take the necessary precautions. Now I know. That said, as a monk I canít see invis and what good does /who do when people are anon. Luckily, I only do a few at a time. I have heard many many other stories of this happening to people all over. One guy even said he had 8 taken from him. Anyways, the funny thing is all the people supporting these thieves, guess we know what types of people yíall are. It doesnít take a whole lot of effort to be decent. Just because someone doesnít lock their door doesnít mean the robber is justified in robbing their house. ďitís their fault, not the robbers, they should have known better and locked their doorsĒ[You must be logged in to view images.

Dont recharge 9 gold items people sell for 2k in public places.

Any random noob would likely have done the same, Id wager probably over half the population would likely have jacked them bc they would have thought recharging where you did would be dumb.

Red Wood Wand levelers must understand, their method is frowned upon by the majority and with how crazy people pay for the wands, each time you recharge em this is a risk that is part of the cost of leveling with them.

I donít mean to imply that the Rogue isnít a POS for taking your items. He is, and he did it knowingly; I donít believe there are any EQ noobs on the server who couldnít recognize what they were buying. But if I leave the keys in my car with the engine on and doors unlocked, Iím also at fault if someone steps in and drives away with it, as is the person who takes it.

This thread may perhaps put folks on notice who group with him. If he does this, maybe heís the type to repeatedly pickpocket mobs while in a group, or even ninja loot items. Maybe not, but it does open the door for speculation.

This is wrong. Sources:

Merchants only said this when they were trained away from their spawn point.
