    So I was out with a few LA friends to have a go at Slasher this morning. We were originally attacking him on the east side of the chamber, around the large square platform with the large rock on it.

    Slasher was repeatedly teleporting us on to the platform (from which we can't get down) and easily killing us. Not only could our ghosts not get off the platform (we had to use the "we're stuck" on the help menu), but it was impossible to retrieve our bodies and the unblessed/uninsured stuff in our packs (lots of bandages and orange petals among other things) which were lost for good.

    For a while it looked like Slasher was stuck up there, too.

    Is this a bug? It doesn't seem to me that a creature teleporting you to a place where you are sure to quickly die (before a chance to recall out, even) and where you can't move your ghost or recover your body after resurrection can be a desired behavior.

    Chances are it is a bug.
    Chances also are that this bug might be in for quite some time, so better start thinking about methods to avoid getting stuck there?
     
  3. It was a near thing, but I managed to use Sacred Journey to get out of there. I have my rune book hot keyed and I just kept hitting it until I could get out. If you are a mage, you should be able to get recall off with protection. It pays th have an emergency recall macro.

    You can also use a silver seed for a one shot re-locating rez.

    I know its a cost issue,the undertakers staff can reclaim all your stuff from 100 tiles away.

    The staff has saved me a few times in similar situations

    Lure him away from that area. Just lure him south of where he spawns instead of north and you'll be fine.
