A Strange Encounter

Postby ULGMsean » Fri Oct 05, 2012 2:55 pm

So there i was in Boston waiting, suddenly, a player pm'd me to follow him and go to the 4 barrels. He said that he got a surprise for me.
I didn't know him at all, he was a complete stranger to me, but still i followed him and look at the barrel and then he started filling it in with items like bear hide, charms, locket, money and much more. He kinned me and found that his name was "my name is name". yeah that's his name.. (anyone could give me an info about him would be nice)

I was suspicious about this when i saw the items, asking him why and why me. Though i'm not sure if its safe take it, i still took it. Most players wont do this, so there might be a reason why. I was thinking what if the items were scented, they could track me and of course go for a raid and take everything away or was it really an act of kindness?
Anyway if you really gave this items with all your pilgrims heart, then i thank you for making another player happy. :)
But if the items where scented and could be tracked, well lets just see what happens next... :(

Sounds fishy. It might be a griefing attempt on some town that player is in. I'm not quite sure that scents can be tracked on looted items. Could someone clarify this?

I've traded with him before . Always seemed like a decent guy.

To my knowledge scent only tracks the individual. But not much experience stealing items so couldn't say for sure.

Yes you can track stolen items. While tracking larceny you can see 3 options: perpetrator/homestead/item.

Put items on an alt if you're scared.

On the day of the Guild Wars 2 headstart I passed the time by taking my near-complete hat collection to Boston and randomly handing them to the hatless. It's my way of leaving Salem on a good note, and clearing out my camp of valuables to disappoint any future pillagers, of course! Maybe your fishy man was doing something similar though?
