    Today I was standing in luna when a new player asked for a Night Sight. I kindly give it to him and he guard wacks me.

    Since when does night sight constitute a guard wack?

    Someone posted a bug similar to this a week or two ago but it was via the healing spell I believe.

    Next time give them a few gold pieces for a nightsight potion instead.:p

    I tried it on myself and other and it doesn't work so they have got to be running something to do it.

    It should go without saying that this requires quick fixing regardless of what's causing it.

    Few things will be as off-putting to the few new players that wander in as will noticing that the game penalizes people for being good and helpful.

    I read about this and then saw it in action at Luna bank on ATL. Apparently there is an intermittent bug that allows someone to get you guardwhacked for casting bene spells like rez, night sight, heals, etc. It doesn't always happen, like I said, it's intermittent.

    lol, you guys are funny.

    No one is running anything, and there isn't some intermittent bug. The person is flagged as a criminal, and when you do something beneficial to them, it flags you as a criminal as well, and subject to a guard wack. what we don't know is what has him flagged. Stealing maybe? who knows. Hasn't it always been like this? I know i've been guard wacked from releasing an aggressive pet and it attacking me lol. Flagging rules are static, but on occasion something sketchy can happen.

    It is obvious those of you who don't play in fel very often. :pie:

    Except of course that the reported instances of this have been in Trammel, there's few obvious ways to flag criminal in Trammel, and none who've fallen for this have reported the beneficiary being gray.

    You don't always go grey in trammel, but have they said the person is blue either?

    bug isn't neccesarily ruled out, some weird flagging bug in tram rulesets, but i just had to laugh at the guy that said "they are running something". That seems to be everyone answer for everything anymore. If they don't understand it, then they assume someone is cheating lol.

    Excuse me, but I spend most of my playtime in Fel. GG . As for someone being flagged crim before asking someone to do a bene spell, BS. The guy doing it in Luna (repeatedly) NEVER LEFT THE BANK, NO ONE WAS GREY, and IT WAS A NEW, NAKED CHAR. This little "game" he was playing, getting ppl guardwhacked, went for about 10-15 minutes. Dontcha think maybe that if he was crim, THE FLAG WOULD HAVE WORN OFF DURING THAT TIME??? Huh?? Maybe??
    I haven't seen someone be gray in Tram for a damn long time, probly since the patch that let reds in town.
    I agree, no one is running any special proggie to make this happen, but I DO think it's a bug.

    And yes, the person was BLUE the entire time.

    this has been around for at least 10 years that people have been doing this trick - I can't believe the secret hasn't gotten out even after all this time - I figured someone would have talked by now

    the people that run the game will never bother to find or fix it either - it's been around for this long - they never will

    Guys been at Yew Moongate in Fel on ATL for couple days with a macro set
    'Want a guard whack?' - hes got poison pots on him and drinks them.
    Then he starts spamming 'Cure Me!' and 'Help!'

    When he runs out of pots he just casts lightning on himself & asks for heals.
    Its pretty funny imho but then I don't go around healing/cure folks
    w/o being aware there may be consequences. The funny part being they ask
    if folks want a guard whack & some players STILL heal/cure him.

    He NEVER goes grey and he NEVER leaves the guardzone other than to loot
    the corpse of a grey/red that just died. Hes a totally new char just made with
    prob 50mage 50evalint. Its obviously a glitch/bug of some kind.

    It amazes me someone would find this fun. Instead of playing the game for enjoyment,
    this person finds it more entertaining to guard kill clueless players? That's alil more than
    pathetic imo - get some help bro cause mentally u got problems.

    I have not seen this, so all I know of it is what I read here. I am curious if this bypasses the noto query check if you have it enabled?

    That only suggests it may be "stealing" skill that causes the character to become criminal, in trammel people don't appear grey, unless you're guilded with them. (as Cetric says.)
    There are a number of ways to become criminal in trammel, but whats the point in guard-whacking anyone... let alone in tram.

    did the character have a "young" tag?

    Person I watched was in Felucca Yew on Atlantic.

    Person was 100% most definitely not stealing from anyone.

    They had no young tag but anyone can get rid of that tag in 6 words
    "I renounce my young player status" - right ?

    Character was wearing same noob clothes they give all new characters and
    the spells casted were straight outta the new character spellbook.
    It was a character the person just made expressly to guard kill folks
    with some bug/glitch they just learned - Id bet on it & give damn good odds.

    Also worth noting, the person died several times from lesser poison potions
    in less then a dozen ticks cause folks eventually stopped curing him, which shows
    his strength/hps couldn't have been over 60-70 ==> it was a new character.

    No, but that's irrelevant as Acid Rain pointed out. And i'm pretty sure it was probably the same guy in Luna.
