    First I just want to put out the disclaimer that I haven't tested for about 5 or 6 releases, so I'm way behind the learning curve. I walked into the challenge dungeon, some pillars in the middle filled with smoke and now the doors are locked and there are 3 stags walking around (non-aggro).

    I can't seem to engage them in combat (t key), or figure out a way to leave.
    I tried quitting and returning, but I'm stuck in here.
    -----------------
    Aha, I figured it out, I had to unsheath my weapon first with the Z key.

    Now the problem is I'm back by the tour guide and the blue glowy ball thing. I try to go back to Braemar, and it loads and all I see is an all black screen. The map still says Challenge Dungeon, and I can 'move' the compass around, but the screen is all black.

    Once in a while it will try to move me but I get an error at 63% "The network connection to the game service was lost". I get this while trying to log on sometimes too.

    I have verified that all my ports are open correctly.

    Is there a way to 'port' back to the starting area? If not, I guess I won't be testing again for a while :(

    Any advice?

    Thanks!

    I just hit the Z key to unsheath my weapon and hug them until they're dead. I made sure to right click them if that even does anything. Sorry if this doesn't help.

    Did you equip a deck?

    Yes I have the deck and got combat to work, but now I can't seem to port back out of this area. It crashes on either log in, or when I click on the blue thing to go back to braemar.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    hey drexorn - I can't get INTO the challenge dungeon. Gme loses connection every time.

    But just a chance it might work - try zoning to me - type /zone Asclepius MGT

    Thanks, I'll try it now and update to see if it works. Give me a minute or two, I'm failing log in at the 63% spot still.

    Was worth a shot, but I'm getting the "Connection to group server down" message when I try to zone to you. :(

    Gawd, that happened to me too. I was trying to get INTO the dungeon, game locked up (lost network connection) at 100% loading. Trouble is, if you restrat you get back to the same place. I've re-created my character about 6 times!!

    Yeah, I don't think I'm going to test anything this weekend if I can't get out of the starting dungeon area. I've spent the last hour or two fiddling with things. I finally figured out how to attack, but the combat system --- YEESH! It's so convoluted I don't know what's what.

    I'll give it another few releases before I check back in on this game I think :)

    Probably best to just ignore the dungeon. Plenty of other stuff to look at.

    Took me a while, but the combat system is worth persevering with. I have a deck that seems to work pretty well now:)

    We made a change that may fix this issue in patch 157. Has anyone who had an issue been able to try it with the new patch?

    Made it inside (yay) turned around and back out just fine (yay)....this has never happened with Seir when he's had the guide quest.

    hope it works for others, too!
