Recipe never drops if drop was blocked due to full backpack

Postby Sigèé » Fri May 29, 2015 1:31 pm

I can't prove that this is true, but my remote debugging skills are legendary so would love a dev to check it out :)

The only evidence I can supply is circumstantial, but I offer two circumstances where I believe this has happened to me.

1. I was farming the 2H recipe for a while with a full backpack. Long enough for me to expect it to drop before I realised. I then made space in my backpack and continued to farm. For months. And months. Neither 1H or 2H recipe dropped. I raised the issue on here, not as a bug but a general comment in a discussion. Within a few days both the 1H and 2H recipes dropped.

2. I have been farming the last recipe I want, critical strike, for quite some time, but did realise at some point early on that foolishly I had a full backpack again. I have well over 100 Iron Basilisk Eyes and would expect it to have dropped by now.

Of course, I realise that I could just be very unlucky, so no need for anyone to pipe up with that nugget, but if a dev could confirm one way or the other that would be great.

Recipes are not counted as regular inventory items so I don't buy your theory.

Sorry, that's my fault! But what's more weird is that a year later and I still have some toons that have failed to get the recipes they want to drop. Even if the devs aren't brave enough to fess up to this, you'd think they would have fixed it for everyone :-(

Even if your bags are full, all the loot still drops. We just stop you from entering new fights until you empty out your inventory.

The cap is only enforced at a few points. You can momentarily go over the cap if you get a lot of loot in one combat session. There is a second hard cap on inventory, but its much higher and should be impossible to hit.

Also, the only check for recipes dropping is if you have them already or not.
