Forum:Weight decreases when I attach candles to candelberum

So I am at the vibrating spot and I am about to perform the ritual. I take out my candles from my bag of holding. At this point I become burdened. I then attach my candles to the candelabrum. My weight goes back to being unencumbered. Is this a bug? The candles are not lit so there is no reason their weight should decrease due to attaching them.

It's a violation of common sense but it's (probably) not a bug. Unlike containers, whose weight is calculated based on their contents, the candelabrum's weight is constant. The game tracks how many candles have been attached, but they aren't "contained" in the candelabrum as they would be in a box or bag. Kufat (talk) 06:20, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
