    Can we pretty please get a teleporter to and from the Blackthorn dungeon that is outside the non-pet zone? I have tamers with packs of creatures, spell weavers with allured followers, and just regular characters riding beetles that have items in their packs that could really use a more convenient route to get in and out of the dungeon than having to deal with the non-pet zone.

    its for events... to keep animals out of the mix.

    leave ur pet outside and log out once inside and back in.

    i know it sucks... but what would suck more is 100 gds at meet and greets etc

    Isn't there a hitching post stable right at the entrance? Not sure if that's just Sonoma or not.

    Doesn't the log-out / log-in trick work for these pets?

    I am curious as to why the whole castle itself is a no-pet,fly,and spell area. I can understand making it that way in the throne room itself,but the whole castle? I don't see what that accomplishes.

    Yep, I missed that; now the issue makes more sense. Maybe the ability to mark a rune at the entrance would be and easy fix?

    You can't logout and do that with spellweaving allures. They don't stable and once you logout, they vanish. You can't do that with pack animals that are holding items like my archer on a bettle carrying extra arrows or my alchemist who carries kegs of explosive and conflagration potions.

    how long does it take to do an arrow run... when i bring my archer i bring four quivers of infinity.. once they run out takes all of maybe three mins to refill.

    pots should not take much longer.

    as for spell weaver pets. i never used em.. so i can't comment.

    i do see most peoples point... "why can't they make a quick path?" move the boundry ??

    i see ur point but i see theirs. and its not that hard to make a quick run to town. i was in blackthorn hounds the other night. guy in dog form on an archer....

    i asked.him how many quivers he carry.. his response was "takes me less the two mins to refill my one quiver.. lol im not that lazy"

    i think alot of us are getting lazy...

    we have 100% lrc . chiv points.. etc.. we have insurance... we never need to take a few and ever get.new stuff.

    rewind a few.. you died.. you ran to ur house.. grabbed a new suit. then you refilled your regs .. grabbed potions..one at a time... aids... etc.

    ran back into battle .. sometimes died again within mins.. and had to repeat... cuz someone looted you and cut up your suit into leather.

    Or could it be that most of us have less time than ever to play UO and don't really want to spend a significant portion of that time running through areas where nothing at all is happening 99% of the time or there is nothing really new to see? Not all shards have active EMs who regularly do things in Blackthorne's Castle. So it is very unsatisfying to be forced to run through it to get to the newest content just because the dev team has said that they set up access to that new content that way to force us to look at the castle. There comes a point when being so stiff-necked about such an ideal becomes a losing proposition....

    It does inside the dungeon. If you log back in while inside the castle, pets get auto-stabled.

    Quivers have a refill button if you're by a source, i.e bank that you have arrows in, literally instant fill, what's the problem with using that?

    I agree with this tho, I don't know why we can't have a teleporters or a gate out by the bridge that has the matching one down by the hitching post. Wouldn't that get around the "no pets in castle" thing? It is annoying to have to run on foot out when you need something fast in the dungeon.

    I actually had a problem with this situation and lost a Paroxysmus Swamp Dragon. Yes, it was my fault I know, I decided not to take my Parox dragon down to fight cause he always gets killed anyhow so I tried to stable him and my stable was full and of course as usual I was in a hurry so i just parked him outside the stables there and told him to stay. I ran in, joined my guildmates fighting for a couple hours mounted on my ethy I carry and came back out and and the Paroxysmus draggy I have had for years had poofed. Was a real setback cause he was the one that my daughters gave me as a gift after I lost the one I had to the Ilsh spawn bug. He was not shown on my followers but we still looked for him all over Brit city East and West and the woods surrounding but no luck. I know I shouldn't have had my stable full and done what I did so I can't complain, all I can do is moan here, lol

    Don't pet balls work for blue beetles and such with items in them? I don't recall.

    go to the Fel side, there is not a "no fly zone" there, you can just run right in, problem solved.
