Problem with character login on long disused characters.

    I've just been killed by some invasion spawn on a shard that I don't normally play except for Xmas gift items, so I'm not really bothered by the fact that I died to it.

    I do have a problem, though, with the fact that there is no way to tell if a character would login to an unsafe location from the shard login screen.

    I also don't appreciate being charged not only by old invasion spawns, but also by these new archery NPC's, especially if the character is rarely used, and I don't know where they were last parked.

    I would prefer it if we were always transported to a SAFE login point or not allowed to login to that new, unskilled, character in a danger zone, I really DO NOT see why characters have to be thrown into danger.

    Cheers ...

    This was a "fix" for factions. From the December 17, 2008 FOF:

    War of Shadows Fixes

    * Login teleport redirection, and safety redirection when recalling/gating for towns is now removed. Be careful when moving throughout the kingdom, the safety net has failed! (This also resolves the problem with Felucca redirects in the invasion)


    I am not a fan of this new feature either but we were warned.

    Safe journeys!
