    I don't mind dying. I don't mind dying repeatedly. I don't mind dying repeatedly all day and night. But when I constantly get stuck on a ledge and die on the ledge and even running back and forth won't drop me down and I am forced to use stuck cause calling a guildmate will only get more stuck on the ledge... and my bones turn before my eyes cause yes it slower after you use stuck X amount of times. I mind! lol

    Oddly I can start fighting one away from a ledge and guess where the asinine things wants to go. Since it is difficult for me to fight one alone, I can't keep trying to start killing a new one.

    It is losing it's fun. :)

    Lol, yeah. There's been a number of areas that have been broken like that, like the steps at the Shrine of Humility in Ilsh on Napa. Probably has something to do with them altering landscapes for the SA client. The Solen Hive and pass from Brit to Despise are completely ****ed up looking.

    That's weird, when I die (and I have much experience in this matter...) my screen does the monochrome thing.

    my world is always technicolor!


    I am dead and under the night terror and I am in the form of a chicken.

    I was a demon , but i figured it would raise too many questions. I figured a chicken would be better, but I thought someone might question that. So I hid under the night terror so as to not.

    But alas, you question!!! one in a million you are!

    Thanks for the explanation Gidge - I thought I was losing it but I knew there had to be a simple answer.

    We have killed a few of these and found if you can lure one into the house
    with the death ledge, they usually will not teleport you to the ledge. Just
    upstairs. And they seem much easier to kill that way.

    I haven't tried to kill the night terrors yet but in the classic client they look just like a Vasanord except they are grey named/flagging. I hear they are tough to kill but maybe a tamer could draw fire then you could loot and recall

    The issue is when you die on the ledge. Sometimes you can run back and forth and it will bump you down. Don't know why or how. Getting back to my body isn't a problem though. If I can't get down I have to use stuck. I marked a rune with another char close by to get back quickly though. I started leaving a pile of bandages so I didn't have to get body anymore. That helped :)

    I will drag him into the house and try there. Thanks Deb!


    PsychoKinetic it's all groovy :)

    I addition, the far NE house has a spot on the south side while heading west, you can go in, maybe just never leave

    Can you mark on the ledge? Maybe have a guildmate open a gate to the ledge, then you can get out and rez, then go back.

    I think the point is to get it FIXED, not yet another 'workaround'
    (no disrespect G.v.P, that's a good idea too)

    NP -- some "ledge of death" are no mark, is why I asked, like the hell hound Slasher area is no mark (but then I found out how to teleport to it, and posted that workaround--because EA will probably never fix that trouble spot, but who knows). If you can mark it makes it a bit easier to retrieve stuff :).

    I can't mark anywhere I'm not a mage. This needs fixed. Fed up with this sort of thing.... it's bad enough these things are overpowered as all get out... but to have them teleporting up into places that they shouldn't isn't right...

    I mentioned it elsewhere and I'll say it here... they teleported me INSIDE the stairs... that's very not cool. If it weren't for using charges on my undertakers staff I would never have gotten my corpse back.

    Pity those that can't do that.

    sigh to many hp again! reminds me of black rock golems! that said i killed one all alone and did my quest and now i will never kill them again unless they give a real good reason they suck! they do ok dmg and the teleport thing is fine over all its a decent critter but to many hp.
