strange for me, maybe has always been around but never noticed. when i yell for help, the encouter becomes locked and seems like i have to run my ars off to get away, have they always locked when yelling for help? usually its my death, just frustrating. any useful replies appreciated <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> thanks!

Are you sure you're not mixing up "locked" with "no xp/loot"? When locking was still mandatory, yelling would unlock the encounter but tag it "no xp/loot". With the "new" system you have to specify if you want to lock encounters (defaults to no lock), but yelling still tags it "no xp/loot".

<p>Wait I didn't even realize this.  So you're saying that, by default, encounters are no longer locked in EQ2?</p><p> So many changes since I played the first time lol.</p><p> OK, if they aren't locked, does the game share xp by default?  Does it give looting rights to the party that did the most dmg, by default?  And then you can change these behaviors if you want? <img src="/smilies/385970365b8ed7503b4294502a458efa.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>
