Sanctuary : It would help having a Healer or a Ahnk in the quests area...

    It is not hard to die in the Sanctuary.

    When this happens, one has to get out of in the the woods and look for a wandering healer to resurrect and get back to the body.

    It would be nice to have a healer or a resurrection Ahnk also in the Quests area so that one does not have to exit the Sanctuary to get ressed.

    Oh well...........

    This was done on purpose, for an added sense of danger to the adventure. For years now players have been quite content knowing that a healer was only a short jaunt away. Putting a healer in would only spoil the journey.../thread.

    Hey how about this popps, if you die in game...you start over. How is that for a concept? Wouldn't you say it is about time for a ghost to stay a ghost?

    I'd settle for spawn that wasn't quite so crazily packed into Sanctuary. There are serious balance issues with the number, variety, and respawn frequency of monsters when you enter the mountain pass area itself.

    If someone can survive in Sanctuary, they are no doubt a very good fighter type, and some people will say they actually like it that way. I think it's a bit much for something that was just intended to be a quest for spellweavers to get 2 extra spellweaving spells.

    That being said, if you learn the location of the ladders that take you to the much less populated underground level in there, and make sure your character has an Undertaker's staff, it shouldn't be that difficult to retrieve your corpse once you get resurrected.

    Retrieving personal belongings some monster looted (EG backpacks etc) well that's more difficult of course, but if you are really careful with what you leave on characters you take there in the first place that shouldn't be a problem.

    One last thing: I always thought the inner Sanctuary area had a wandering healer, anhk, or some object inside where you coud resurrect. Are you sure you're going deep enough into Sanctuary? You'll know you're there, the walls disappear, there should be a quest NPC or two, and monsters can't follow you into the area, and I'm pretty sure there's some grass there too.

    One thing you should definitely do is take some friends, Sanctuary definitely is not a place I'd recommend trying to solo.

    Don't mess with sanctuary! It's whacked and crazy, and I like it for that.

    Adding a healer (a red one!) to the area in the back would be good though.

    Ankhs are useless since they can't rez faction people.

    - Create new character.
    - train new character in healing (or magery with LRC suit).
    - run the character through sanctuary to the quest area.
    - park the character there and log him/her out.

    Whenever you need to get ressed, just log the char in and res yourself.

    If you only have 1 account, then you're not l33t enough to go into Sanctuary.

    And if that fail, then make friends with someone who does have a healer in Sanctuary.

    :lol:, l33t huh? More like waste of money when 7 characters and a castle full of soulstones works just as well...

    I have a full Spellweaving book, no need to go really. Not to mention you dont have to fight anything, run through it, not a big deal lol.

    I did find evidence that someone managed it when I was researching the quest guide. I couldn't do it. I fleetingly thought about setting a competition where the prize was awarded for a screen print of Lenley outside. :D

    I would also like to see the healer situation stay as is. Sanctuary is one of the few places left that tends to force people to work together. And, as mentioned previously, if it's a place you intend to visit by yourself, you can use the Sacrifice virtue or spellweaving to self-rez if you have to.

    If I'm not mistaken, Sanctuary is also frequented by some scripters doing quests similar to the Heartwood quests for runic tools, etc. I don't like the idea of making their routine easier just because they think fewer people are crazy enough to try to keep an eye on their routine there.

    Oh, I never have problems down there. I use sacrifice, monster ignore, and other accounts to rez myself if it's needed.

    However, I've never heard of a gem of salvation. What's that?

    I do not see the difference.

    That a healer is indeed at the entrance of the Sanctuary OR inside the Quests area, the player who dies IN the Sanctuary (quite hard to die in the quests area...), will STILL need to res AND walk to the corpse to retrieve the stuff......

    I find it merely annoying and a chore, to have to re-walk all of the sanctuary 2 levels from the outside after resurrecting when, instead, ressing in the Quests area if one died closer to that side would be less annoying.

    Bottom line is, it would not "ease up" the game, one STILL have to walk to the corpse to retrieve the stuff only, one would not have to re-walk the entire 2 levels from the outside.....

    That's at least how I see it.

    Croaker, I believe it's a faction consumable that gives you the choice to be rezzed at a randomly selected virtue shrine in Fel. I've never owned one or used one, so maybe someone else can provide more details.

    I definitely prefer the approach of don't go to Sanctuary alone or use existing game mechanisms to get your rez. Let's not turn it into a cakewalk just because someone's having trouble or challenges with strongbox quests. As far as I know, teaming up with someone else so you all stay alive should NOT affect the quality of strongbox contents.

    Umm....that's part of what makes it a challenge and probably slows down the farming in there, popps.

    Scripting quests in Sanctuary ??

    How is that possible ?

    I mean, Quests that require to exit the safe area I cannot see how they could be scriptable.

    The variables are just so many and the MoBs there just soooooooooo many that any character scripting would have hard time completing the script, I think.

    And, if this is about crafting Quests, they require resources and a whole lot of (especially for scripts running for hours...).

    Just look at the pack horses in Heartwood.

    Can someone please explain how on earth can a scripter drag along several pack horses or llamas full of resources through the Sanctuary ??

    Ain't it simply way much better to stick with Heartwood ?

    I do not think that Sanctuary offers anything with Heartwood does not also offer, already (in regards to crafting Quests, that is...), much more safely.......
