    I do wonder why, of all the names they could use, @Chris used the same name as a Player Owned Town. Finding things is hard enough when there ISN"T multiple things with the same name in-game.

    Yes when its on the live side as I said its normal. I find bugs all the time in many games in live environments and report them all the time. just check our forums and see after every release how many bugs there are that sneak in or how fixes sometimes create more.

    Because he hasn't memorized all 350+ POTs, including all the inactive ones? He doesn't even deal with keeping track of them. And it's a separate namespace, or at least not a "unique primary key" that is used for searching anything except the web map, and it does not search the live game database for that.

    Perhaps he could rectify it by somehow connecting the two via an eventual entrance location and fiction (if that is even planned).

    Lol is their a town named Tartarus? Yea that’s kinda bad if so.

    Now is a good time to change the name where it better matches the theme, I mean it’s not even officially launched.

    Most importantly Some one apparently paid money and had their town named Tartarus secondly I like the name Tartarus for the dungeon name but not at the expense of the pot owner and residence. That’s really my only point.

    I bet someone could come up with a cool chaotic zombie sounding name if they wanted 2.

    The world is their own, so wouldn't they be able to name it whatever they choose?

    My top name picks would be..

    • Deceitous

    • Despiseous

    • Deception

    • The Abyss

    e: I feel like maybe I should clarify; these are the names of some very, “Ultimaesque” dungeons, and they seem fitting.

    Here is the meaning of Tartarus per the dictionary.

    In Greek mythology, Tartarus (/ˈtɑːrtərəs/; Ancient Greek: Τάρταρος, Tartaros) is the deep abyss that is used as a dungeon of torment and suffering for the wicked and as the prison for the Titans.

    Well we could always have our own lore for it and of course quests as other reasons to do it would be very awesome. We always need more reasons, achievements, titles etc and even timers for timed events. Every scene should be sprinkled with a bit of lore imo.

    I think Tartarus is a great name for a dungeon. Not so much for a town.

    So, where is this town of Tartarus anyway? The wiki says it's nested within Spite but I'm unable to find it.

    [edit] This town is very mysterious. The wiki article says that it used to be named Faubourg d’Avallon. The map shows that Faubourg d’Avallon is nested within Xenos. I went there and it is not.

    I was talking about the town of Tartarus (the reason a few people seem to be up in arms over the new dungeon's name).

    I didn't think it was officially in game yet. It is early still.

    I’m not “up in arms” over it but if it unintentional and I think it is. Now is the time to fix it. The question is if there was a player town already named Tartarus should portal use that name to name a dungeon. Worst case scenario they should offer that pot owner a free name change or something.

    I haven't been able to find the POT. Does it even exist?
