The Journey Home - Lanys Pathing needs fixing

    When doing this RAID event her moving from Island to island has become increasingly problematic, where she almost makes it to the next island then falls or whatever, and has to restart, happens over & over on some days.

    Please see if this can be fixed as it causes quite some delays waiting for her to eventually find her way.

    Bump. Happened all expac on Phinny for us, but she usually made it after 10-15 attempts. Starting last week it got even worse for whatever reason. Getting through 4 of these teleports is really tiring, some nights we give up.

    Thanks for the bump.

    I will add that we have tried moving everyone OUT of her path - made zero perceptible difference, we then tried blocking her path as much as possible, big model illusions, the fabled Ogre-wall, the works, but again, made no perceptible difference, we just had to wait it out over & over & over & yeah a lot of overs.

    WE HAVE ALSO TRIED BURNING ZEB TO NOTHING BEFORE LANYS IS ACTIVE AS WELL AS LEAVING HIM ENTIRELY ALONE ASIDE FORM TANKED BEFORE LANYS IS ACTIVE, NO DIFFERENCE.


    Yes, I know I'm shouting, didn't mean too.... But the whiskey doesn't want to let me retype all that..

    This was real bad during raids last night. If the pathing is an issue in the void, perhaps a straight teleportation mechanic could be used. This event is already longer then many due to the RP elements, adding the bugged quest NPC in easily doubles the time spent.

    Please have a look.

    Any news?

    I looked into this a bit. The problem is likely lag related, so your mileage may vary. I am aware of the issue, but I don't know when (or even if) I'll get it fixed. I can't reproduce it, but I have an idea for a speculative fix. It is just a complicated, time-consuming task.

    Thanks for taking a look at it Absor.

    Would the suggested fix of Lanys having the ability to teleport between islands be suitable and less prone to lag interfering than her pathing between them?

    lag related? so Lany who is running on the server (as she is an NPC) is lagging and rubberbands over and over? or do you claim every single player with "minimal/normal" latency suddenly lags for only this event or how are we to understand it? then snip the code and let her warp directly to the islands (we know warping works fine from the event in TDS where one of the bosses warp from spot to spot in and instant)...
