    Thanks. I'll have Turles look into it. I don't really use em, so not COMPLETELY sure how it works, but we'll have to mess with it.

    Ok i have 4 of these and i dunno how its possible for someone to do this outside of there house.

    Are you sure its not someone in factions using a faction stronghold rune? If they arent flagged it takes them instantly away.

    They not usable outside a house.

    you are probably seeing the use of the faction rune, which is exactly what they are designed to do.

    Hallo ??

    Last I knew, EVERYONE can place and use a House Teleporter tile set.
    A Veteran Account is ONLY needed to claim a set but its placing and use is entitled to any and all players in the game.

    Re: They not usable outside a house.

    No no! Not at all. The faction rune has a recall-ish sound to it, and shows an orange flame, and can only be used once every 30 or 60 mins (not sure which.) These people do this at the gate, standing outside of a house waiting to be attached and instantly "poof". Now, I am not sure if it is a "house teleporter" or the "crystal portal" but either/or, it should be addressed. I believe it is a crystal portal, in which case, perhaps have a timer so you can only portal "recall/teleport" XX times per XX minutes. I can see why a teleporter should be unlimited time, but the portal should def have a recharge time.

    Perhaps 1800 seconds like tallies? Or even 900 seconds. I just know they were made to "get somewhere quickly incase you dont have a rune" or whatever. Not made for a "Get out of jail free card" for pvp.

    Don't think you can use the crystal portal if your flagged anyway. It is supposed to work just like recall/SJ so you cannot run away with it.

    If someone is not flagged they can leave the situation whenever they like. Simple defensive strategy used by any person that is either trapped in fields and being ganked.

    It is the crystal portal.

    The horrible blue PvP newbies on Chesapeake use it alot. They have a house that is right by the moongate. They wait by the corner of the house with the 'fel yew moongate' typed (or set to a hotkey) and as soon as any spell or aggressive action hits they get insta teleported inside GZ and try to get people guard whacked.

    I'm not sure that any of the actual PvPers fall for it anymore though.

    Leave it to the Pvpeepee'rs to try and get yet another part of this game nerfed. Investigate the facts first, before you start burning the witch....

    It is just a variant of an old trick. You can do it by marking a rune for the GZ around the moongate and run around with recall precast.

    It is actually not the same at all. The recall one can be stopped because you can't recall when paralyzed.

    Does this worked when flagged?

    If so then yes it needs to be changed as soon as possible.

    If they are not the agressor and are just escaping then good for them, but if they are using it to escape just because they are suddenly losing then a fix is needed.

    I will setup one on the back of my house in fel and do some testing and send in a bug report which is what everyone here that is seeing this happen should be doing.
