    So me and guildies had two fights with Scalis in Buc's Den. The first one gone poof when died. No corpse whatsoever. We thought maybe it was something else. So we did another one.

    Again, when I killed it with Word of Death, it is gone again. No HP bar. No corpse. NOTHING! What the......:fight:

    Is this a known issue or what...

    We fought this before, and it was quite normal.

    :(
     
  2. Sorry to hear about that. I'd be very angry if that happened to me to. I was planning on making a discord mage for doing enemies like scalis in a group. That 1 tile Soul Forge is probably my most desired item in the game.

    We did 2 last night and 2nd one had no corpse but it did drop an item. So item drop will happen even if corpse doesn't happen.

    I'm guessing it has to do with tiles near shore being full. Pets, summons, etc. ... not sure. Wonder if it uses same AI that ships do when you try to get off the rope.

    Okay, so I hosted another Scalis session last night, and I discovered something about this bug. The Scalis does not actually disappear, only the corpse appears invisible.

    I don't play the EC so I'm not even going to address the EC. Also, if you have the CC but you don't have UOA, then you have to download it. You don't even need to pay for it to use the corpse names function, just need to download it.

    In the CC, I noticed that the corpse name appears in the top left corner of UO. You can dbl click that then use last object until you find the corpse. If you miss that window then you have to log in and out in order to see the corpse name in the left corner again.

    Anyway, from what I've experienced, arties will drop in pack. Not sure if there is anything worthwhile in the normal loot, but there is a lot of normal loot to go through.

    We did one last night. Half the group couldn't find it. I was on EC and was just fine. Just being the friendly neighborhood bard I had no rights.

    It sounds like the same bug as the maddening horrors, whose corpses were invisible most of the time.

    Yeah -- but I think those show up w/ All Names macro ... Scalis doesn't seem to show up with All Names for some reason. Hm. I thought, also, that the horrors sort of have a small corpse, like a little dot ... no? I haven't done them in awhile so I'm forgetting. :s

    Anyone tried bringing up object handles to see if the corpse appears then?

    From what I experienced I had to log in and out to see corpse name w/ UOA ... couldn't use All Names or Object Handles, was weird. I'll have to try again though to make sure, hehe (CC that is).

    What else in the game fails to render a visible corpse in the CC? I'd say it's worthy of being called a "serious bug."

    It doesn't disappear for everyone either btw.
    Some of my party could see it and some could not.
    Mysterious....
