    Anyhow there was a need to make a change to actually fix a Problem. This problem has been identified and has bee out there for over 3 months. Ok last release they placed a Door between the Deamon and the rest of the hallway. The "Secret" door to his hallway is still there. And all the other stuff is still out there.

    3/14/2019 11:25:42 PM] Veteru: You speak to Veteru, human, but our conversation should end immediately. You should return whence you came, human, lest we both suffer my masters' wrath.

    [3/14/2019 11:25:47 PM] Grumpie Weinie[PVP]: master
    [3/14/2019 11:25:47 PM] Veteru: My masters take what they will, especially from the humans above, and store it all here behind the door I guard.
    [3/14/2019 11:25:47 PM]
    [3/14/2019 11:25:54 PM] Grumpie Weinie[PVP]: door
    [3/14/2019 11:25:54 PM] Veteru: My masters demand that I keep the door to the north locked at all times, lest I suffer their wrath. And although I ensure the door remains ever closed, they beat me nontheless. At least my health is poor, and their torture will end soon.

    [3/14/2019 11:26:03 PM] Grumpie Weinie[PVP]: lock
    [3/14/2019 11:26:03 PM] Veteru: I guard a door that must remain locked. Only I have the key.
    [3/14/2019 11:26:03 PM]
    [3/14/2019 11:26:06 PM] Grumpie Weinie[PVP]: key
    [3/14/2019 11:26:06 PM] Veteru: I have the key to the door to the north. But my cruel masters demand I share it with no one.
    [3/14/2019 11:26:06 PM]
    [3/14/2019 11:26:13 PM] Grumpie Weinie[PVP]: master
    [3/14/2019 11:26:14 PM] Veteru: My masters are young, and bold, and... aggressive. They brook no ineptitude, even from me. Especially from me, guardian of their door.
    [3/14/2019 11:26:14 PM]
    [3/14/2019 11:26:16 PM] Grumpie Weinie[PVP]: door
    [3/14/2019 11:26:16 PM] Veteru: My masters demand that I keep the door to the north locked at all times, lest I suffer their wrath. And although I ensure the door remains ever closed, they beat me nontheless. At least my health is poor, and their torture will end soon.

    [3/14/2019 11:26:21 PM] Grumpie Weinie[PVP]: health
    [3/14/2019 11:26:21 PM] Veteru: I am an old man, even by elf standards. My life comes to an end soon, I think... quicker than I would like, with help from the frequent beatings I suffer from my masters.
    [3/14/2019 11:26:21 PM]
    [3/14/2019 11:26:23 PM] Grumpie Weinie[PVP]: help
    [3/14/2019 11:26:23 PM] Veteru: I guard a locked door for which only I have the key. I do not need help with such a simple task.
    [3/14/2019 11:26:23 PM]
    [3/14/2019 11:26:30 PM] Grumpie Weinie[PVP]: Goodbye
    [3/14/2019 11:26:30 PM] Veteru: You should go before something bad happens.

    [3/14/2019 11:26:43 PM] Veteru: (dying) You... shouldn't be... here...
    [3/14/2019 11:26:47 PM] You looted an item (Brittle Solania Catacombs Bone Key).
    [3/14/2019 11:26:47 PM] You picked up 8 gold.


    That was almost 40 minutes to locate one of the people to kill to get the Key, This keys is supposed to come off him to oipen a door to the north but it does not so did this break some other part of exploring.

    Anyhow I head back ot the Deamon Room and find out the change to the dor changes absolutely nothing to fix the problem, It is just a nuiscence to cause a time sink before being able to get into the fight.


    So I can call this a FAILURE to Fix a Problem

    Problem IDed, Solution presented and implemented., Identified as a failure to work as it did nothing to fixthe problem and just add more nuiscence stuff there.

    To fix the problem the Door would have work and close the door after party entered, Locking the Party into that room with the Daemon, until Success or Death.

    A note on the door Door should have a note that states there are a few elves in the area who are fighting off the blood Banes who are trying to steal the keys and free the Deamon. Go help in the fight and look at the elves to see if on might still have the aKey to open the door locking the Deamon in . This will give you an idea to look in e close area and fight the elves and bloods banes in there not having to travel over all over places of th dungeone.

    BTW The Map Not Working is also another COMPLETE failure of a system that need a lot of help.

    They Key should NEVER have ended up with the venerable elf as his keey is for another door.


    The time is now to actually Fix and work on some things like this. It need to be done Properly with thought and insight to make the fix works and actually Viable without causing MORE problems

    On top of that, I watched a twitch streamer use an exploit to jump directly to a boss in a scene. They dropped in directly on top of the daemon at will, dragons, no long run into The Rise.

    That's even more BS. I asked them how and they said they were "under NDA".... so wtf Port... get this crap sorted out

    I see this differently.

    I believe the problem was people in party doing things to reset the instance to farm X boss. That's the issue. Fixing that issue would mean you shouldn't be able to reset the instance to farm the daemon. I don't believe this was actually fixed?

    Since they didn't fix it, they put in a workaround to slow the farmers... and in doing so, really screwed with casual players killing the daemon every so often, like me.

    Fix the actual problem and stop screwing over casual players in the process.

    If that's the guy I think it is, he's been there since before this new door. He's talking about the locked door behind him, not the door in front of the daemon.
