    Something is wrong with the sparkles that teleport you around the champ area. The one that USE to teleport you back to T2A now sends you to the other side of the champ area and there is no way to leave the spawn except for a boat....is this a former bug that was corrected or what is the deal?

    I think it might be intended maybe not it did say it would teleport you to a more desirable place..why not in the middle of nowhere that works..CHECK..one bug down :/ I guess lol

    ..seems they didn't test their bug/dislike fixes prior to shipping it

    Aaaggh! That doesn't sound right. The sparkles for ice east worked fine. Do you think it was meant to allow you to clear the spawn on the right side of the mountains? There still needs to be a way out of the area.

    There was already a teleporter to bring you over there. Least on Siege.

    There never was a teleporter on Napa, you either had to boat or cast teleport on some water barrels that people placed years ago. This might be a napa thing but I find it hard to believe.

    Most prod shards had a sparkle by the alter that dropped you on the north side of the mountain. You could easily run west around the mountain and get back to the alter. Also on the north side of the mountain was another sparkle that dropped you in the grass east of Delucia. To reach the east side of the mountain for the additional spawn you had to teleport through the mountain or use a boat and your return required the same. Now they have a sparkle that drops you on the east side, which at first blush seems like a nice idea... it certainly makes it easier to get over there. Unfortunately it leaves players stranded with no way back to the main spawn. The only exit is another sparkle (if it is still there I haven't checked) that drops you in BFE.

    Another nice idea from the Dev team with a complete fail in execution.

    There are supposed to be 3 teleporters at Ice East shown in this map as T2, T3 and T4. Which now goes where please?

    T3 sends you to roughly T4 when it use to send you back to near Del city in T2A. T2 sends you near T3 and T4 sends you lower down the same side of the mountain just like it always has.

    While I am at work I suspect that it would be easier for someone who has UO installed to go and see....

    T3 takes you to south of T4, T4 takes you to east of T3 and T2 takes you to northwest of T3.

    I decided to check it out before reading this thread... So now I had to "help" out. :(

    Same thing happened to myself and a guild mate last night. He found the bug and I went to go see...he had a boat and I had help stuck....it was annoying for both of us but I think a little more so for him as no one really boats there. I'd be interested to see if the other Ice spawns tele works.

    I guess you can always finish the spawn and get out through the star room....

    Must be another one those long running things that stumps the code mages. Across the board make a pass or put in stairs and a path across the ridgeline. Been a while but a boat was a must for champ hunting.

    The initial bug was from a player report that there was no way to traverse to the opposite side of the spawn area with any degree of ease, so we adjusted the destination locations of the teleporters to do so. In doing so it opened up the potential to get trapped at the location. There is now an additional sparkle that will return you to the mainland. Thanks for bringing the issue to our attention :D

    This is really too bad, now that you need a boat in T2A, aggressors will be at a disadvantage due to the "fix" for boat hiding at the Yew Gate.

    Maybe I will invite some trammie pals for a pleasure cruise in T2A and pick up some scrolls at Ice East. It's not like the boat combat is working as intended now anyway. We will be perfectly safe.

    It should be right near where the teleporter drops you off from the main land.
