Question (Solved) Possible Weight Allowance Bug?

I emptied my inventory but my weight allowance isn't changing much. Is this a bug or am I overlooking something? (the weight allowance is at 96/75)

edit: I fixed the problem. Turned out I had too much coin on me.

Exactly, sounds like you figured it out. Coin has weight. Later on, when 1 platinum doesn't seem like an important factor, you'll prob delete copper by the thousands. For now, it might make sense to hoard it and hit the bank a lot. gl hf!

you can buy gems at a decent exchange rate too, depending on the gem and merchant, yeah gl hf!

You can also "vendor bank" where you buy something that sells and resells for close to the same value (like a cracked staff) and you can convert smaller coin to larger this way. You lose some in the process, but a 10-15% hit is sometimes worth skipping the trip all the way to an actual banker:

[Sun Nov 03 11:36:44 2019] Loric Weaver tells you, 'That'll be 1 platinum 2 gold 5 silver 9 copper for the Cracked Staff.'
[Sun Nov 03 11:36:46 2019] You give 1 platinum 2 gold 5 silver 9 copper to Loric Weaver.
[Sun Nov 03 11:36:50 2019] Loric Weaver tells you, 'I'll give you 1 platinum 1 gold 4 silver for the Cracked Staff.'
[Sun Nov 03 11:36:53 2019] You receive 1 platinum 1 gold 4 silver from Loric Weaver for the Cracked Staff(s).

In the above example I was able to convert a large amount of small change into 1pp and it cost me ~ 1.2 gold to do so. This is due to the fact that you'll automatically spend your smaller denomination coins first - so if I had 1500 copper (and nothing else) after this exchange I'd have 1pp 1gp 4sp and 241cp and would have dropped a nice chunk of coin weight.

This is also another reason some weight-conscious players carry gems (a stack of 20 still weighs 0.1) as currency. A peridot is ~ 10pp so handing someone a couple for a port or a rez (clerics love them!) is a perfectly amicable exchange.
