The current situation with tanning tubs is, unfortunately, untenable. If people were kind and knew how to share it would be fine; unfortunately people are greedy and vindictive, and so what we have is a disaster.
I personally had my Dire Wolf leather stolen right in front of me, just because the person stealing it had their leather stolen by someone else. I set a timer for my leather and was there to get it right on time, but they were grabbing it as fast as I was. Their excuse was that someone had stolen the “40” hides that they had placed previously.
Do we see the problem here? First of all the person is stealing from someone who is innocent and is justifying it with the fact that someone else stole from them. Then we have the fact that the thief was also a greedy person in the first place; after all they took up 40 spaces in the tanning tubs leaving little room, if any, for anyone else.
Seriously this is not about me or what I had taken. I have heard so many people complain about their leather or hides being stolen from the city tanning tubs. Something has to change. I personally want to be able to build my own again, but if that isn’t possible we have to have a way to prevent theft. It would also be nice if folks couldn’t take up an excessive amount of the available space.
Please find a solution to this issue. I don’t do the PvP part of the game but this is enough to make me want to smite someone.
