    Finally got to do some Lost Vale last night, thanks for fixing the entrance to the water room.

    But it reminded me of a bug that is apparently still around. When you get rezzed, there is a chance that you will be "frozen", such that mouse look (right-click drag camera movement) and (raw mode) keyboard input don't work. The only way out of it (aside from quit and reload, which you can't do in LV after it closes) is to get killed and rezzed again, and hope it doesn't happen again.

    The list of things you CAN do is (if I recall correctly from yesterday):
    - press ESC to get to the settings window
    - click on the text box in the chat window and type into it
    - click on the hotbar glyphs (keyboard doesn't work)
    - auto-draw your weapon when attacked (keyboard doesn't work)

    This should be rather easy to reproduce, just fight in a big battle like the left room in Lost Vale, and die and get rezzed a lot. Probably some flag isn't being reset upon rez, so maybe if you were in some particular mode while dying, it never gets reset, but ankh rez does reset it. (Wild guess: what if you were typing in the chat window when you die?)

    (hmm I was streaming when it happened, maybe I can go back and look)

    Agreed on fixing the res freeze. It is particularly annoying during fights with an aether dragon in South Grunvald Barrens. Too easy to wipe out the entire party this way. Oh, and I want the lost xp I back. :(
