] I'm trying not to flame any devs here, but this move was rather silly. Blocking off so many areas to recall is adversly effecting far to many people. Hundreds of characters are either stuck on their island homes, or stuck away from them. People can't use their bank runes to these spots, and getting tot he place sto fight the invasoin, AND HAVE FUN, is far to much trouble for the reward. and most importantly (to me) people can't recall to fel fire entrance. This is THE most important place in fel as it's the 'gateway' to champ spawns. Fel is in enough trouble already, this sure isn't helping.

The simple answer is to switch off this 'no-recall' stuff. You don't even need any fiction behind it...since there wasn't any putting it up :P

Another solution, that requires slightly more work, would be to limit the no-recall to teh town's themselves.

But seriously, this needs to be fixed, TODAY!

########################################

Unless you are dead you aren't trapped anywhere.
Get a boat.
Recall to a different place away from the zone.
Run on foot.
Please stop ordering the team to do things because you're too lazy to do one of the above.

########################################

Another one of these posts?

I have this strange urge to unleash payback for all the "Trammies want things easy" posts over the years.

Obviously you're serious about feeling inconvienced ... but what steps have you attempted to work around the problem? Did the ophidian capture your characters and cut off their feet? Did they cut off their hands so that it was impossible to mark new runes? Did they cut out their tongues so they couldn't ask someone for help?

Enough with all of the stupid reply posts. We felluccans want it OFF. Why? Because we are the ones paying the fees. Their job is to facilitate OUR game. They are NOT in charge. Capache?

I really think the solution here would be to walk to your destination. Another acceptable solution would be to traverse the lands' waterways via boat.

Once upon a time the people of Sosaria gladly walked or rode to their destination. Along the way they might have bumped into someone interesting, mischievous, or perhaps even someone very generous.

Why don't you take the extra 45 seconds or even couple minutes to get to wherever you're going, and see if you don't bump into someone new.

well I gave up fel along time ago got tired of getting gank'd everytime I wanted to go to my house! 12 - 25 on 1 fights is not fun never has been never will be.

but now that I am in tram or rather malas I find that I am still able to walk and use a boat. maybe because I was born in fel :)

as for the original post. that guy is major lazy probably dose not even know were his house is on the map! let alone the towns.

I do like my recall and gate tho so I would not like to see them go completely maybe just recall out but no recall in like in fel lost lands.

the reason I would like to see recall left in is that some times when I am playing something comes up in the real world and I have to log out quickly. can't do that if I need to spend time trying to find a safe place to log out. I know I don't insta-log if I have been fighting but at least my character is safe in the house or inn untill I can get back online.

My main gripe with it is it is making it a hassle to do escorts.

I like it. Just need to disable the Trammel Rule Set, and I will really love the Ophidians. :)

Well, they did say if the Trammel side invasion was pushed back, the Fel side would bring more ophids in support. So they are pushing attacking on 2 fronts (Fel and Tram), this should be interesting.

I wish the Ophidians would hire us to help them out. There are a few "goody Two Shoes" I'd like to take out.

Oh, now THAT would be an awesome idea for a future event...

give players the ability to aid a monster invasion, they can ONLY stay in the invasion areas and are set as grey (freely attackable by anyone) even in Tram.

How are you going to interrupt BODs?

Make cursed BODs that can only be taken out of backpacks from a corpse, meaning you have to hold onto it until it is filled?

If spells cant be cast in certain areas, then BoDs shouldn't be given either. :)

Adri, that is my exact gripe at the moment too, although I can find other things to do til its over. I am in the process of building up compassion this week and seems I can only escort to like 2 towns. Minoc and trinsic. What I did instead was go to Haven and do all the newbie escort quests instead. They give the same amount of gold and virtue points, and anyone can do it, not just mages. I am even building it up on my swdsman while I was at it. Always a way to work around stuff in my book!

Wouldn't bother me at all if the invasion just magically disappeared. But, that would ruin the role play aspect of the whole thing. For now, I just avoid all the areas the Ophids are.

Honestly, I dont mind it too much, as the Generals are high enough to give me honor points now. I have 2 dots to finish and nothing out there that I can handle on my own, that is, is giving me dots anymore. Its just getting a General that nobody else will jump on. I even throw down any mystic weapons they drop on the ground for others to use. I am not there for loot greed, I am there for honor gains.. hehe..

Why do people have to be so much of a pain to the Devs? They shut off the recalls becasue people that couldn't fight the Ophidians were being recalled into the areas and losing all their stuff. Is this fair to them? No it isn't! Is it fair you you to have to walk a few minutes from a gate or another town to get to your destination? Heck ya it is. Suck it up and get on with the game. It is people like this that have demanded a lot of the ridiculous changes that have occured over the years. Come on people get on with playing the game and stop complaining when you don't have it as easy as you once did!!!
