    Sorry but this my BD of the week. It has been a while since I needed to use the gate travel spell. I just remember why I stop using it. Most of the time you need to cast two gate just to get to the destination if not 4. Can any of the Dev team have a look at this because this is ridiculous and frustrating that you can't enter the gate that you cast.

    And while they're at it, check on the "Your pet's spirit lacks cohesion" on the guy that resses them in Luna. Or if we have to put up with that, remove the price, took me 30 mins to get him to finally res my pet last night...

    I don't know what a BD is, but I will try to help.

    My thoughts are that this happens because you are not exactly in sync with the subserver you just arrived at. There are things you can do to avoid this message (or at least they work for me). When I reach my destination, I either say something or I will cast a low level spell. Once I do either one of those actions, I never get that message.

    Those are all part of the price to pay for not having a player resurect the pet. Try using one of the chat channels while you wait next time it dies. It might save you some time and money if someone can help you out.

    I do cast something like bless and/or eat something. But still get the cohesion thing constantly. Actually, it's more than usual lately. There was a short period where I didn't get this problem.

    You might want to pick up one of these:

    Elixir of Rebirth

    If you are on LS, I can craft one for you (if you bring the blood).

    I also find that walking more than eight paces from the gate reduces the frequency of getting that message.

    Ya I guess fixing stuff is out of the question... I only use it maybe once a week, I'll just get a few more in my stable and cycle them til a tamer friend is around. Hopefully my stable doesn't start lacking cohesion too or you might have to make me a hitching post.

    I complained about this ages ago and was informed that the spirit lacks cohesion aspect of gate travel was implemented to solve a duping problem. Now I know it's still annoying, but at least there's a good reason for it.

    This was for gate travel. Not sure on the pets.

    Almost as annoying as being stuck not being able to switch characters because you killed a freaking Mongbat...

    First off... the whole not being able to insta log at your house in Trammel should be REMOVED completely...

    In FEL it should only stop you from "insta log" when you have actually attacked someone... ie another PLAYER.... not a stinking Mongbat.

    And while they are at it.... fix the stinking house menu to allow more than 10 co-owners... and allow you to be co-owned to any number of houses... like you could in KR!!!! I want to update my dang houses sometime this century!

    My patience is wearing thin Cal!

    If you can cast Gate you obviously can cast mark for where you want to go straight out. See Problem Solved.. Carry runes to where you want to go not half a dozen hops along the way... If you are gating your friends have them all gather in one spot, don't go picking them up what are you a bus driver IRL?

    yeah I heard same thing about the duping, I think that's one of the ways you black holed yourself. Not sure if that was fixed or not though.

    bit off topic, but what was the reason behind the "rubberbanding" effect when you tried to go across certain items on the ground... I can't remember for the life of me. I know it happens because the client said it was okay to pass through it, but the server said no.

    Assuming everyone is a mage, your theory holds water. That water breaks, though, when you realize that on the more populated shards players without magery can buy gate travel and mark/recall scrolls, and for the most part have to carry these around or continually restock them. Big problem if you have to waste several scrolls on casting a gate to somewhere because cohesion stopped you.

    I may be a legendary mage but I can well understand their plight. Cohesion shouldn't stop anyone from entering a gate for more than two seconds per double-click or walk-in attempt, period.

    Probably my #1 pet peeve in UO. I now wait till the sound of the
    gate opening to stop and usually can get right in.

    Ladies and gents we have a winner!

    The "spirit lacks cohesion" implementation was to stop a specific duping bug, good luck getting them to implement another solution.

    I hated this too till someone (Petra?) mentioned that if you wait until the sound effect is complete before stepping into gate it works- and it does 100%.

    yup, I was just about to post that again. All you need to avoid the message is a second or two of patience. Don't enter the gate till the casting sound finishes.

    It's definitely annoying and I'd like to see it fixed, but it's not a major problem.

    The main thing is that you have to wait until the sound from the spell being cast finishes. If you click the gate too fast, you always get the cohesion problem.

    That lets you get in the gate the first time yes, but to get back it normally never ever lets you, You could run around click it for ages until it disappears, It hates letting you back through.
