    No idea at all. But don't feel lonesome, Shame lvl3 where the flame eles spawn (my fav victim) has a spot where one spawns every so often, that can't be reached by a dexxer, and can't be looted by mages if ya kill him. Since the area only spawns two at a time, it seems like it's forever between eles, that one still living there seriously slows the spawn down. IT's happened to me 4 times, 4 times I paged for help, 4 times I left the area in disgust after 30 minutes or more of waiting. And puleease, don't tell me all 4 times they couldn't help me cause they were busy with someone else...I'd believe in that oceanfront property in Arizona a lot quicker than that LOL

    Perhaps it was the way you phrased your GM page. Might try again with some different wording like "a monster tamable has spawned on a blocked tile which is preventing the taming process from completing its cycle. Please relocate the monster tamable to a non-blocked tile" and include the location. GMs can move creatures from blocked tiles and have done so for me in the past for various reasons.

    Was about to ask the very same thing. Can you tame it and log out and back to bring it to you? thought I think not as it is in a non accessable tile it would constrew it as blocked.

    No, you can't. I don't remember the exact message, but if you don't have a direct path to the tameable, it'll cease the attempt.

    I don't know why the GMs can't move it for you, they've done so for me before without issue (though it was a couple years back). I'd say try paging again with a slightly different wording. You might get lucky.

    When you attempt a tame, it does a accessability check to verify a clear path between you and the target. If that path is obstructed it cancels the taming attempt. Blocked tiles constitute an obstruction so there is no way to complete the taming cycle.

    Yes. Even if it can attack you from that spot, you don't have a clear path to attempt to tame.

    If the tile can be teleported to, it may be possible to invis the monster and then teleport to that tile and attempt a tame. I do not recall if it is still possible to teleport to a tile that is occupied. However, I am not sure the blocked tiles I know about in the weld are valid teleport tiles even if they are not blocked.

    Even then, trying to tame a cu on a single tile is virtual suicide without some good mages to keep you alive.

    If the monster is on a blocked tile, it can't move no matter how much you attack it.

    The only way I know of is for a GM to come and move it for you ..... and if they tell you no again tell them it IS their job to move monsters that spawn where they cannot be reached.

    Good luck getting the dog.

    Sometimes the GMs help move the stuck creatures and sometimes they don't.
    Unfortunately you may just have to kill it and keep respawning them until you get another one.
    The only blaze cu I ever saw spawn spawned on a stuck spot. It got killed by mean people long before a GM even responded to my page.
