Open loot system and real world money item

Well, i can understand that, the game is design to lose all your item upon death. Lose a really world money item can be accepted.. in some way

However, when it comes to "open loot" others real world money item, should it be take as real world steal? As i can see the laws says so.

No, because you are warned that the items you buy with your real world money can be looted or stolen from you in game. This is like buying chips to play poker and losing them. That is not considered stealing because you are voluntarily putting that money up knowing you might lose it.

So, you are trying to breaking the law?

If you don't want to lose an item you bought with money, don't buy an item with money. You can buy them from other players with silver in game or you can loot one from someone else. But if you do buy an item out of the store, you are warned that you might lose it. It does not break any law for that to be part of the game mechanics.

JC once teleported me into an enclosure and humped me, and didn't even give me the courtesy of a reacharound. :|

I forgave him and later volunteered to help recover something that had been lost:
