    Ok I have walls and dark wisps casting right through them. I hope once I open to the public they cant come in like the vampire bats do on occasion in my malas house, I do hate cleaning up after them.

    Mesanna is there any way we can get some additional mortor?

    They do tend to leave a lot of guano around don't they? rolleyes:

    What about double-walling like in Fel? Does that halt the casting at least? Might be worth a try.

    I am surprized anyone as not asked you this yet... but if they get too pesky for you, I'll take that plot off your hands. I'd even be willing to up and move again for it.. LOL

    At any rate.. like one other poster said, have you tried double walls there yet to see if that works?

    Was not the NW corner but I have the piece in there. Not sure how those little buggers casting in here, looks like everything is closed. Guess I should collect that guano from my malas house and stuff it between the bricks.

    I cant say I blame you for wanting the house it is awesome, however I am not getting rid of this house. And only way I am moving from any other house we have now is if I get a castle.

    I am fore warning you all though that you may not want to go afk in this house. Unless I can find some magical elixar to put a force field around it.

    Last night I bought a porter, once deco is done the house will be public. Once that is done I will drop runes all over "EK Vendors Portal to the Abyss" so watch for runes.

    I have the Human plot. I am following EA's story line and putting a shiny new outpost there.

    If they fix the wisp spawn, and I think they should, I hope they fix the casting through walls issue and not just stop the spawn from popping around the plot. I also hope they don't do anything like make spawn bounce back to it's original location, except renown.

    Ok I think I know the problem. You just cant make things round in a square game! I have a rounded out tower piece and buggers can cast threw it and you can cast back at them through it.

    I guess you have to like the utilitarian look in Fel, huh? Double walls, waterfalls, god forbid their be anything nice looking... Especially around Yew (although I have seen maybe one... or ya, one house in Yew that looks nice on the inside). One could make the argument that being in the abyss that it shouldn't matter if it looks utilitarian or not... but.. It would be cool if Lorie could make an outpost that's safe for non-fighting templates to visit and looks welcoming.

    And actually, I'm trying to remember the last time I was in a Fel house that was literally double-walled... but I'll take your word for it.

    As far as the storyline goes... You would think that this spot, supposedly the farthest spot from the evil slasher (or whatever it was) would be safe from attack from crap like wisps :lol:

    I can't wait to see this new outpost when it's finished... it's looking good so far! Can't wait to see what the gargoyle one will look like too :)

    And I have three houses in fel, when I first started everyone of our houses were in fel. But I fell in love with my malas house and got rid of one. Anyway I dont want double walls I want it to look good.

    Anyway just beware going afk in that house, for anyone who visits, they can cast in the round part of the house seems I patched up all other places. However last night had a little bugger in the house, while they seem to only be able to cast and come on on the first floor the rev they summon like to travel, pain followed me to malas on my crafter. So I am making those that read this aware that they can get but I want the house to look good. So if you have to go afk cross to malas first.

    I don't know if it will help, but I found on Siege I didn't need a double wall, the inner wall could be just half height, and as such not visible. Though of course it does mean you can't place anything in that area. That was when players could cast nature's fury through the walls. Not sure if the same applies to casting dark wisps.

    If your going for the round tower look could always do the plot edge with low walls for fence.

    I've used knee walls like tables. You can place an object, raise it with the design tool, then put in the knee wall. The items have to be raised a certain number of tics to be above the wall, or they will go to the moving crate with a redign (sometimes when you add the wall, sometimes on the next one).
    Sometimes you can just drop items right on top of some knee walls. I think it's something they coded in, but never got it to work right.

    In effect, you can make a ledge. It's static though, you can't just drop things onto it like a table. Stuck in the design you make.

    Pegasus statues work great on them, for a decorative style. I would think certain furniture would be cool, but might be risky for storage in this case.
