Hey
I did the newbie quest for the Enchanter in Sparkle, where you have to kill the half-orc priest in orc dungeon and get flute.
I killed him, but died while escaping.
Now I've gone to get corpse/equipment...no corpse.
Restarted quest, no corpse.
Signed out, no corpse.
Checked corpse pile in dungeon, nope.
Checked weapons and armour rooms, no items.
It was also notably my first death in the game ever, is that important?
If I die again, is it, along with my stuff, gone forever?
That's why I'm in limbo, not wanting to die.

Your stuff does not disappear when you die, but your corpse will eventually decay and other people can pick up your corpse/items. If you are able to make it back to your corpse you should be able to retrieve your items.

Yes I know this, but there never was a corpse. I went straight back to where i died...
If you say the corpse will decompose away I guess I will never find it now.
However, it's sad and concerning that the first time I die I lose all my stuff.
Cheers

It doesnt matter how many times you die, you can never permanenlty die, and the penalty for dying stays the same (unless you also change race when you die). You lose some XP, and unless you can make it back to your corpse, you also lose your items. Usually, you can get back to your corpse to retrieve your stuff, but if unlucky, someone else loots it before you do. When your corpse decays (which takes several minutes), your stuff will end up on the floor. So, the only way to lose it is if another players picks up the stuff, or if an NPC does, which some do (but it's rare).

There are also some places where your corpse and items vanishes immediately. For example, there are some places where you can drown, and all your stuff (and corpse) is washed away. There are also some other ways of dying, where you die in such horrific ways that there is nothing left... neither corpse nor EQ. That is also rare, but it happens in some places.

In most cases you CAN retrieve your stuff, though. It's hard to know why you could not find your corpse in this particular instance, since we don't know exactly what killed you, or if there was other players around in the area, before you got back to the place you died.

Either way, don't be afraid of death. It's common to die in Genesis, especially when you are new to the game and small. The majority of players have died many many times, but the more you learn, and the more you grow, you'll learn how to avoid it better.

Cheers.

I killed so many orcs in retaliation :lol:
So I soon had enough coin to buy all my stuff again.

See you in the shadows...
