<DIV>Sorry if this is already mentioned here, but I tried to do a search and was given the message, "Too many searches in progress, try again later" a few times.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>When going into the mage tower in South Qeynos, the blue teleporter on the bottom floor, takes you up to the appropriate floor, but it will not transport you back down to the main floor when  you try to leave. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Unfortunately I discovered this late at night and there was nobody around to ask if there was another way down or anything. In my infinite wisdom, I tried to jump off the side and aim for the water below. Well, my aim rather stinks and I bounced off the wall of the building about halfway down and was killed by falling damage. I ran back, only to find that there was no way to reach my shard as it was stuck halfway between the main floor and the next floor up in the wall.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I know it is test server, but I was told by a guide/GM whatever he was, that he can't go to test server and none of the GM's go there either so I was out of luck....wait 72 hours for your shard to reabsorb.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Is that true? No GM's go there? If I were to become stuck under the world or someplace I couldn't get out of, does that mean that I have to delete the character and start over? Doesn't seem to be a very efficient way to test things out.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Bleh, this wasn't supposed to be a rant, just a "hi, here's a bug" but I guess I was still annoyed at being brushed off hehe.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Since my stats are all messed up while I wait for my missing shard to re-absorb, I'm just staying off test server till the 3 days are up.</DIV>

Heres the deal on Test. Yes, if you cant get to a shard, you might have to wait to reabsorb it. Stuck under the world? At some point the server will drop, probebly next week after the holidays are over. More often after that I suspect than it has been the past couple of weeks.If you play on Test /join Test. The community found on Test will rely on one another to solve problems. I suspect by next week someone who can help you if you were stuck will be on and off with regularity.But there will be times like this week, when you are on your own with the dangers of the server.

I had the same thing happen to me. There is a ledge halfway between the blue level and the floor that conviently catches shards. I had to wait for my shard to melt.Note, next time try 'Call of Qeynos'....
