    Slasher pulled us up onto the base of this ruined statue, ripped us to pieces and left our bodies/bones to where we could not reach them.

    (The Hell Hound is standing close to where Slasher had been when we arrived -our bones are still visable on the statue base)


    So, its Friday night and a couple of us are debating on what to go kill.... We decide to go play with our old pal, "The Slasher of Veils"!!! Sounded like fun, we hadn't been there to harress him since the Bane Dragon and Hell Hounds had migrated to the area. The excitement sounded good, and excitement is what we got!

    We found Slasher to the NE of the Chamber of virtues, and when I arrived he was standing on the base of the old ruined statue in the ruined city. Didn't think much of it and started plinking away at him with some arrows, next thing I know I was teleported up onto the base of the statue with him. I'm thinking, Wow, Slasher has a new teleport move... but then I found I could not get back down from the statue. Before I could warn my guildmates, I see my husband had also gotten teleported up there too. We're scrambling, still plinking away at Slasher, trying to stay healed and find a way down. Of course none of this worked, and soon we were shredded and nothing but our ghosts were left on the statue base. As ghosts we still could not find a way off of the statue, in the mean time, somehow Slasher manages to get off the statue and give our remaining live guildmate a run for her money. Once our guildmate had given Slasher the slip for a minute she was unable to reach us to give us a res, by bandaid or Nobile Sacrafice. We were unable to get off the statue, and had to use the "help I am physically stuck" option, to be teleported elsewheres. We got ourselves ressed, and dressed, and went back to the statue to see if we could reclaim our belongings from our bones. Nope! Still could not reach our bodies, still could not find a way back onto the statue base. We sadly just watched whatever goods we had at one time disolve to dust.

    We had fought Slasher many, many times in the past and had never had this happen. (He was one of our favorite play-mates.) But again it was all previous to the Bane Dragon in the area. We don't know if Slasher has a new move (teleporting you to him) or if the statue has some unknown mystery to it that we are unaware of.....

    We went back and killed Slasher a few more times, making sure to stay away from that strange statue, and during that time, he had never teleported us back to him again.

    Has anyone else run into this? We don't know if this was a bug or some unmentioned power of the statue... Any info or insite would be greatly appreciated.

    Things like this happen often in the styngian dragon area. The dragon teleports you to him if he can not get to you. I'm assuming the slasher has the same power.

    The only thing I can say is that even as an elf with zero magery I've learned to carry a teleport scroll or two on my person for just such occasions. Also if someone had stood down and to the right of your corpse (I know this sounds strange) it's likely that somewhere in that general direction you could have been rezed and or gotten your things. At least that works in the styngian dragon most of the time unless he takes you to that space up above and inside the walls over the ankh... in there your just S.O.L no matter what as there is no reaching you or teleporting out.

    Sorry for your loss but thanks for the heads up.

    Thanks for the reply MalagAste, I didn't realize that a non mage could use a teleport scroll. It took a few fizzles but it does work. Guess that is one more thing I could carry around with me....

    As far as Slasher and the Statue goes, I think I figured out what happened. (By the way I have been unable to find a way to teleport onto the base of the statue, tried with a mage many times.)

    The hell hounds are spawning on the statue base.
    Slasher seems to have a fixation with killing hell hounds.
    Slasher must've teleported himself onto statue base to kill hell hounds.
    We came along, Slasher teleported us up there because he could not reach us.
    Once we were dead, hell hounds were dead, Slasher just wandered off to kill more hell hounds.
    Whether Slasher teleported off statue or walked off I do not know, my husband said it looked like he just "fell off", either way, we were unable to get off of the statue ourselves, as we were nonmage, no teleport scrolls, then dead. LOL

    So I'm guessing the whole mess is the hell hounds spawning up on the statue. There were three hell hounds on the statue base when I ran thru to look today. I'll send a bug report, see if anything happens...............

    Sounds like a great plan.

    Certainly think your theory is sound. I have seen the slasher killing everything including the Bane Dragon.

    Yep ... just have to avoid running past that area, even if you are hidden or stealthing. I'd call the fact that you can get stuck there a major bug. But yeah, Slasher, the evil that he is, killing the Bane, gives an idea that the Bane are more evil than the Slasher (or that the Slasher is just berserk).
