Anyone having this issue? Even though I have the right to open the chest, and it will not be considered stealing, the guards and Marius will not shut up about it. They keep saying “Mother of God!”, “Who’s there?!” and other typical sentences they say when they catch you red-handed stealing from a chest.
I have experienced that in From the Ashes, where literally every time I open the main chest where I drop the money and take my profits Marius will keep reacting to it as if it was theft. It also happens in the last main quest at the camp. I open the loot chest, and the guards react as if it is considered stealing.
Also, I can only take the gear in the chest by stealing it (the action is labeled steal instead of move), but not all gear I took from the chest will have the red hand tag to indicate that it was stolen, and none of the guards will try to arrest me.
I am playing the most recent patch of the royal edition on PS4.
