<DIV>So I've been noticing some odd things about the Horse we get...</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>If I dont cast my horse when I login everything seems to work normally and I get no strange messages etc.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Once I cast the horse after logging in it seems that I am forever stuck with certain things..</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>If I ever go in the water, with or without a horse I get a message. "you cant do that the water is to deep"</DIV> <DIV>If I ever sit (when not on the horse) I get a message. "you cannot do that while sitting"</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I am not *trying* to do anything other than swim or sit, no spells etc so Im not sure what its complaining about. I do not have a horse buff icon on me at the time either.  This spams my chat almost constantly when it happens.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Sometimes (randomly) I run at horse speed even when I dont have the horse on (usually after it was forcefully removed by water for example) My friend with Jboots cant even come close to keeping up and I have regular boots on.  I'm not complaining about this one but it seems odd.. :smileywink:</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>The only thing I have been able to do is clear up the message spam is to logout completely then come back. But once I use the horse again these messages start comming back.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Also, the text spam happens when either I click off the horse (cancel buff) or run into water which forces it off.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Anyone else had these things happen or know a way to clear them up?</DIV>

<DIV>I've had the same experience.  I don't know of a way to resolve it.  I just /bug it.</DIV>

<DIV>/bug it every chance you get.  It is so very annoying and needs to be fixed.</DIV>

<DIV>If nothing else the bug has been a constant reminder that you do not need to sit to regenerate faster in EQ2, sitting is just for the sake of sitting. With that in mind, I'm glad the bug was around for a few days as it got me out of the habbit of sitting, because the spam was a constant reminder to stand up. Now I'm just ready for it to go away though, point taken =P</DIV>

<DIV>I sometimes can't even get off my horse and have to zone or drown it to get rid of it.</DIV> <DIV>Change "sometimes" to "most of the times" to be more accurate.</DIV>

<DIV>It is not the horse, at least not directly.  This was driving my crazy so I played around with my buffs, once I killed Knight Stance or that yellow buff with a knife on it( do not remember the name), the message went away, but once I called the horse back the message comes back...very annoying bug and it makes no sense.  <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>

<DIV>I couldn't /camp last night.  I had to /quit instead.  When you try and sit to /camp, the spam says "you can't do that", so it disregards any commands you can do while you are sitting.  The problem besides spam if I understand correctly, /camp does a quick save on your character, while /quit just makes you go LD with no save to the server.  I'd like my stuff saved in case of a client, or server crash thank you.  Please fix the Horse issue.</DIV>

<DIV>I've always been able to camp out even if the spam was telling me I cant do that while sitting.  It does seem that more than one of our "buffs" can cause this to happen though.</DIV>

<DIV>/camp doesnt really trigger a save.. /quit doesnt make you lose anything.. however if you LD due to a server crash your latest save is usually at least a few minutes earlier..</DIV>
