I love it. I left my little Lalafell sitting in a bush while I went to get something to drink.. and I come back with blood current berries in my possession. Maybe if I stand next to a rock I'll get gems!:D

Anyone know how this afk looting system works? Do different areas get you different items?

Thanks :)

It seems like there is something like, loot lag.

It doesn't seem to show up in your inventory until maybe 15 or so minutes after the fact.

I think it's a bug. I was getting stuff without mining or harvesting. I just assumed it was other people getting their drops and the chat log said it was mine.

Are you sure they were in your inventory? I've noticed that there are grammar mistakes left and right. Often times when a mob kills me, it'll say "you have defeated you." Also, I've looked at my inventory when it has said you obtained such and such and it ended up being the person fighting the mob next to me.

Oh maybe it's some sort of loot lag. None of the mosters I;'ve been killing have been dropping items right after I kill them. **** afk loot would have been awesome.

I know this is probably silly, as it was similar in FFXI, and may or may not be what people are experiencing... but the item drops go into a loot pool, and are distributed to you once the distribution timer has ended (which is an awful long time). You can manually go into your loot pool by using /loot, or opening your inventory and selecting the "loot" tab on the bottom of the window.

There is definitely some major lag with this system at the moment, as I was receiving looted items as far out as 25 minutes from when I last killed a mob - but they did show in my loot pool list, just took forever to distribute.

Don't know if this helps, but if so, yay.
