    Is it acceptable to summon a harbinger in Trammel with the purpose of killing other players? How is this different from luring? I thought this was an uncool thing for players to do at the recent rares festival on Great Lakes.
     
  2. If it was intended for the sole purpose of killing other players, and it can be proven that that was so, then yes, it's illegal.

    How can you ever prove that?

    Did you summon it to kill people?

    No.

    Case closed.

    that's like saying

    Did you lure the monster to kill people?

    no. "i was trying to get away"

    case closed....
     
  5. It would have to be something the person who summoned it said and is recorded in your journal. Like luring itself, it's nearly impossible to prove, which is why I bolded that portion of my reply.

    I can think of no other reason someone would pop a harbinger in that particular setting other than to kill people.

    With 10 people in the same area, 1 pops it. How do you know who did it?

    That crystal was cool but the potential for abuse is immense. You aren't going to get an answer from any dev on this as they would have the same trouble anyone else would. They should have thought of it when they made it but I have long thought they rarely, if ever, actually play the game. If they did you wouldn't see as many things like this.

    You can also summon one whilst hidden and it won't make you visible, So if there are 10 people visible, It doesn't mean it was any of them!
     
  9. Ok so lets say you cant prove who popped it. Can they get in trouble for casting energy fields that block people into an enclosed area with the harbringer. Right after they had it follow them into that closed area and invised and teleported out so that they could cast those fields?

    who care though? with insurance, all you have to do is get rezzed and all off your valuables are still in your bag. is dying really that bad of a thing these days?
     
  11. Its a problem when they cant take your harrower the right way and use the harbringers as a way to do it. Theres nothing worse than being peaced and discoed by one when your trying to lay down fields and defend. I dont know how many times I would die trying to lead it back out only to have another person self rez behind us and summon another one. I cant wait till all the damn yellow crystals are finnaly used up. God forbid someone ever duped them. Then this crap would never end.

    This thread my friends is an example of why trammies with common sense should hold "rares festivals" in a city that has guards or inside a house where they can remove the creature. I suppose their minds just don't think the same as evil-doers though.:thumbup:

    As for the fell events such as harrowers, that just good ole tactics my friend. They will have to end up fighting it as well if they do take the harrower.

    The siege post didn't make any sense because you don't have to worry about a creature killing you and looting your stuff.

    The harbingers themselves are not that hard. Easy to solo.
     
  18. Case reopened....
    Spawner stated specifically in general chat, which goes to journal, that he was summoning 5 of em to kill "noobs" in luna at nw corner!

    But that could have happened at any time? It was just unlucky it happened at a Harbinger.
