    i wonder, is it illegal in fell, to block monsters..with say boxs or something so they cant get out of a room. Mind you this is in fell, and does not involve other players.... i dont know the answer

    I believe creating artificial barriers to trap critters is generally frowned upon regardless of facet.

    well rules are different in felluca than on a trammel based facet, for almost everything(physically). Was pondering something, and did not know the position of EA on it.

    It's illegal, does not matter what facet you do it on. Did you really need to ask?

    S_S has it right blocking critters with bagballs, boxes, hides, etc are all illegal, any method that allows the killng of critters without them having a chance at retaliation is illegal or exploit.

    How about blocking one of the two paths from where the spawn comes on Covetous level 2? Its not to kill them nor not allow them to retaliate.. its just to only take care of half the spawn and do more waves.. hehe

    oh i know, its illegal.

    This is true, but it always left me wondering if it would still be ok to trap the magic casting/fire breathing monsters, per the letter of the law, they can retaliate, just not via melee. :)

    Ya, I know, still not legal, but based on the fact they can retaliate..........................................

    What about all the people that kill Semi in fire by teleporting into the rock circle so she can't hit them?

    There is Game Tactics and then there is Game Mechanics. Outsmarting critters is good. Abusing their AI is bad. Just put on your bigboy pants and play the game right.

    Even scraping a critter off on the corner of a house and killing it is just in bad taste.

    Actually you should of known this as a PvPer. If you cant block other people with ballbags but have a clear path for them at a Harry. Same with factions as long as their is a clear path. Same would go with monsters in any facet. Now that doesn't mean people don't do it. Just saying.



    Bazinga!

    I agree, just like they need to teach Baricoon how to walk around when attacked.

    If they don't want them blocked in then make them be able to teleport like Rikktor.

    I encourage anyone to log on great lakes and stop by covetous levels 3 and 4 and see the 200 bagballs placed to block every single creature back into a corner.

    It was amusing to see this once or twice but this is becoming multiple times per day.

    Lets fix this exploit?

    It is Illegal..
    Although many do it to get a foot up on others.
    The rub is that GM's have to see it done before they can do any thing about it. Which makes for alot of fustration for all callers..
    GM's just dont have the time to sit there and watch for these players. The GM's of today lack the numbers in personel to do as the ones from the past had.
    My suguestion is to use a sneeky to grab them up or use a axe on them in there to help out. Yes I know its a pain but a little help goes a long way for all in game.

    The solution is simple, back in the day when players used boxes to block creatures, gms gave the creatures the power to break the boxes.
    Bagballs need to be added to that list.
    Doing anything else seems like a waste of time.
