Paging GM taking forever for response. Anyone know how long?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Mephistos, Oct 19, 2009.

    We did a char transfer to our shard, and used some pack horses to bring some "goodies" home. One of the pack horses unpacked from the transfer crate into the unusable portion of our keep. After over an hour and forty five minutes, we've gone from number 9 to 7 in the queue. Anyone know how long it takes for a packhorse to go wild? We can't feed it or access it since it's in the unused portion. Any ideas how we can access the pack horse?

    Is there a neighbor near you with a teleporter? I know unbonded pets will follow you after you step on a teleporter. Or maybe use the "eject" cotext menu?

    Not sure but good luck.

    Did you try opening a gate to your house inside the house by the wall, say all follow me then go threw the gate to the front of your house?

    Never tried it dont know if it would work or not in that particular spot...
    Have you tried "remove thyself" and targetting him, to toss him under the house sign?
    Be worth a try, at least.

    Tried logging in/out with the character who owns the packhorse? That should move them to your location.

    Thanks for the idea! We did just place some veteran reward teleporter tiles in the keep though, and unfortunately, it didn't work. thanks though... :)

    Mephistos Guest

    We tried this as well, I guess the unused area of a keep isn't considered a part of the house, so the command didn't work on it.. thanks though... :)

    The pack horse isn't bonded unfortunately. Logging out would also remove us from the queue. We thought about transferring the char to another char and trying the log out thing, but are really worried about keeping the horse "happy"... :)

    also, if you can go to the spot and efield yourself up or down to where the packy is and gate yourself out.

    The area on the first floor that is inaccessible. There are 3 areas around the central part of the keep down there that is just grass, he's stuck on the western side one... :(
     
  16. Mephistos

    Mephistos Guest

    Said all follow me, it's a really stubborn packhorse... Not sure about the last part, but would love to get where the pack horse is so I could gate out... :)

    Over 2 and a half hours now, still at number 7 in the queue, and the packhorse is now only "very happy"... :(

    also you might try the single click on the packy and xfer to another char etc and have them try logging in and out.

    Where are you logging in and out for these? In the house? Did you try going to a different facet like luna, tokuno, etc and log in and out. I dont see why this isnt working.

    time sensitive situation like this should jump the pager to the head of the line

    so, if the packy goes wild, what happens to the stuffs? and will he stay in that little area after that happens and then it's just a matter of the gm retrieving the stuff or does he poof?

    I'm sure there are people out there paging with concerns that are just as important to them as this is to me. We are now at 3 hours into the page, and have gone from number 9 to number 6 in the queue.

    If you use the "I am stuck" option, will it move just you or any tames as well?

    I'm guessing in a few hours they'll pop up with a canned response and refer you to a website.

    Amazingly, while still 6th in the queue, GM Fiper came through and rescued our packhorse from our keeps abyss. Thanks everyone for your ideas on how we could rescue him ourselves, we really appreciate it.. :)

    50 gold says you will get a canned response that contains a link to the knowledge base.

    And thank you for playing Warhammer.

    Oops, I thought logging in/out works for any tames regardless of being bonded.

    You could have just used the command to place a trash barrel over the empty area then logged out and back in while still standing on the trash barrel. That will shove you down into the grassy area. Can also do it by casting energy fields on yourself.

    Sorry I didn't keep up with the thread. :(

    Oh duh, it wouldn't log out with you because it had stuff on it. So that was the problem with that.

    This will not work.

    If a packey is unbonded and NOT carrying anything - then it will be autostabled when you log out and returned to you when you log in.

    If a packey is unbonded and carrying items (as it would be from an xfer) then it will NOT follow you on log out/in. If you log out, it will stand there until it goes wild and drops your pack to the floor.

    Seems there are a lot of misconceptions about auto-stabling and unbonded pets.

    place a mousehole on teh second floor of the keep, poly into a slime and get bumped into the area needing accessed thus access your packy, mark a rune inside the area or better yet gate to outside the spot

    Im glad it worked out for you. Too bad you had to wait for 3 hours or more for something that took, what like 15 seconds to fix?

    Anyway, good for you. No lost goods is awesome!

    Stand above where the packy is and cast e field on yourself and log out n in, you should be telelported down the where the packy is. and simply gate urself out
