    I was working on Skara loyalty this morning and came across a specific npc that had a doorway blocked and refused to move no matter how many times I would say "[npc's name] move". All I'd get in reply is "Excuse me?". I wish the npc's would walk about more,or not choose to block doorways. :(

    Long standing problem, I'm afraid - has been a issue in New Haven for ages, when NPCs decide to block the route to an escort destination you can't get your NPC through. I don't know if a gate would do it, but even if it did its' a ridiculous way to get someone into a building or room because another NPC is standing in the way.

    I had one like that - then I realised I was on a mage and could simply cast a gate to get my escort out. I'm slow sometimes. Much more of a problem on a warrior of course.

    At some point they changed un-killable NPCs (those with a bright yellow health bar) to not move ever no matter what. If you ever get a chance, find one of these NPCs in the morning after server up, note their location, then come back before server down, and note that they will still be standing on the exact same tile.

    we have a really bad one on siege, one of the tailors in the skara tailors shop has been standing IN the doorway, permastuck for ages, you have to push past losing all your stam and trapping yourself inside until it regens just to go in. I have seen other caes of yellow npc's seemingly getting stuck in doorways though, and there's a few npc's that constantly spawn....run off full speed somewhere...then teleport back to where they spawned over and over.

    I'm pretty sure it still works, but I found if you snooped them like crazy they'd get fed up and move. So if asking them to move doesn't work, try snooping ;)
