Greater Sanctuary on Central Server
« on: October 14, 2005, 06:28:00 am »
Since the update on the 12th.  Nearly, anything and everything can see through G-Sanct on Dregar.  I was seen by wandering madmen and the Elves in the Hills on the way to Hurm from the Storm Horm mountains.  I still get that invisibility icon as well and am not sure why when the origonal spell didn't have it? (I can't quite recall if it did or didn't)  Anyhoo, I just thought I'd let you know and hope someone else can confirm this.

Strange.  I tested it on Central and it seemed to work, but I'll give it another peek tonight.
  Thanks for the report.

    I have made similar discoveries. Going back thorugh what saw or didnt see me, I think you may wish to investigate whether it only happens with monsters that are immune to mind affecting spells. I was not seen by true sight, but a number of monster with immunities to mind affecting spells did see me.

    Perhaps it was something with me then.  I never rule out human error particularly when I'm involved.  Take your time with it, I'm not bent on having it now as in "at this moment" now.  I have stopped using it for the most part and just this once decided to not encounter everthing along the way.  I certainly appreciate the work.  Cheers!

      I also appreciate all the effort put into it. GS seems to be hard coded with bugs from bioware (*grins*) and I known the team has spent time trying to remove these (or circumvent).

      Dadunmir I had reported similar experiences directly to Dorganath so I don't think it is just you.

      And be sure to stay clear of anything that gives concealment.

      Aha!  I never would of thought of the concealment issue.  I take it they negate each other?  

      I was on earlier today and the icons seem to be right....the character doesn't look like it's under the effect, but if that's all, I'll take it.

      Edit Yeah...nevermind this thread I started.  From what I can tell, I am just a little bit behind on what effects negate each other.  Everything seems fine from what I can tell with G-Sanct.  I've not done extensive testing but I am currently quite pleased with the results.  Good job to the team.  Chalk this one up to my error.   :)

        I am aware this is an old topic, but since it was moved to fixed bugs I have experienced it again. Specifically in the areas around Saudiria on Dregar (nowhere else but this could be a coincidence).

        I know the team has spent a lot of time and effort on this buggy spell and I know care should be taken when using it(which I do). I am posting an extract from my log in case that can be of any help, but I can fully appreciate if the team does not wish to spent more time and effort on this one spell.

        However if that is the case could it be moved from fixed bugs to bioware issues (seems to me this spell is born buggy, raised by gremlins and lives in bugsville) and made sticky?
