    Default Line of Sight by Standing on a Slope...

    Trion this needs to be fixed, it's a frequent problem for people in Melee combat and it sometimes effect ranged attacks as well. What am I talking about? I'm talking about how when someone is standing on a slope, or sometimes a rock, grave stone, ect, it says that "You must be facing your target" when you try to attack them. I've seen more than a few rogues find sweet spots where they can stack bleeds on top of someone then stand on their sweet spot unable to be hit, but more often than not it happens by sheer luck on the part of someone who's jumping or running around.

    Would you mind explaining why someone who's just 1 cm off elevation with me is suddenly impossible for me to attack?

    this is just another variation of the z axis bug.

    Trion knows about it. Now whether they can fix it is another story.

    Per Gersh... they're working on it. Take that for what it may or may not be worth.

    Saw the same thing in EQ2 in Ward of Elements. A staircase leading into a room with nothing to block LoS but you couldn't see target. That zone and problem were about for 2 years with no fix but that was SOE and they suck balls. True story.

    In EQ2, if your big toe was hidden behind a rock, you didn't have LOS though.
