Bump. Last night server reset took longer than 21 minutes, I think it was more like 40 minutes. Y'all will need to pay attention to that and updated ur timers.

Not worth it. I left BeatingU's IDOCs to go spend time with my ex. It dropped LITERALLY 10 minutes later.
I was at Beating U's IDOC. It fell like 2 or 3 in the am EST. Where do you live Blaise? Beijing? Cause I doubt you went to "see" your ex at that time otherwise. I can understand you having an "Ex" though.

Hi, i have a question on using screen shot in macro. How do you enter the "exc Take screen shot" part? I go to the screen shot tab, but it doesnt add it to the macro.
You can do two things:

1. Make a hot key for taking a screenshot, and record yourself in the macro pressing the hot key.
2. Press record on the macro, tab to the Hot Key section, find the screenshot option and instead of making hot key press 'Execute selected'.. make sure record is running

Depends on item weight iirc, heavy items take longer to decay.

15 or 20 minutes for normal items. Some items can be as little as maybe 15 seconds (things that are blessed or newbied.. like trophies/house deeds/ christmas deeds etc).

I am not sure why this is in the Trade forum (old post too), but I am moving it to the Guide section.

Nope, not necessarily. That would definitely speed it up. I don't want to share the locations because I want all the loot for me. I scouted a few places tonight (lots of land though) and found several GW houses. And, I'm wondering why is item ID necessary? You don't need that to click signs do you? And, if you do need that skill what skill level do you need it at for this to work?

Lastly, is there any way to automate signing back in after the restart? I think you could do this with windows script language, but if you will asleep when it does, you'll need to do this.
