    Has anyone noticed that brit bank on atlantic has been completely unpopulated recently, and that the usual 50 boats full of items lining the coast to the east are gone? what happened?

    Probably cause no one can recall in there because of the stupid invasion so everyone relocated to Luna.

    well you have to be pretty board to bank sit anyways right?

    luna isnt really over populated here, is it on other shards?
    sometimes i wonder why they dont make really small patches to fix things like not being able to recall to brit.

    i posted it on uhall in the case that it applies to other shards as well or if there was a known exodus because of the lag. the disappearance of the ton of boats full of items was really weird too.

    question:
    answer:
    There is a reason you can't recall into Brit, and it won't be "fixed" until the invasion is over.

    dimensional instability caused by dragons invading from Fel.

    (although so far the western half the city has managed to avoid major assaults, the flames in the air makes it a very dangerous place to park a wooden boat anyway - I would advise any sailors to relocate to one of the few, remote, mercifully untouched ports)

    Not sure about others, but I'm avoiding the invasion towns (including Britain) for 3 reasons -

    1) Getting redirected to Jhelom if an invasion is active
    2) Keep getting "location blocked" messages even after the invasion is defeated
    3) Don't wanna get caught if an invasion suddenly starts

    Well, unless I am actively looking for invaded towns of course.

    Not reenabling teleportation after the invasion is defeated is just plain sloppy design. Glad to see some things never change.

    would be nice.
    however on #2 why does that even happen if #1 is supposed to exist. and why would #3 happen is #1 is...su..posed to happen?

    im prolly side tracking from why is east brit abandoned but eh.

    Oh, for #2, the town does return to normal some time after the invasion has been defeated and you can recall back in normally. But why would I want to try my luck at trying to recall to bank and get blocked? I'd rather recall to a bank I know for certain won't redirect me. Besides, if you get blocked, you gotta wait a couple of secs to re-open the runebook and recall off another rune. Unlike if you fail the spell, you can re-open the runebook immediately.

    So you can recall back to Brit bank normally at times. So #3 can happen in this case.

    Same issue with Moonglow as well. The other towns I have less of a problem with.
