Spider Cheat

Post by Aka » Wed Jun 28, 2017 10:06 pm

I was in a realm riding an elephant that was webbed. Elephant goes down from an arrow, so now I'm mountless, but unwebbed. Spider comes along and kills me dead.

and so shall i ever remain.... dead. dead. dead.

:(

Just to confirm then: this was vs the AI, not an invader?

Here's an example of this bug.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8JaAFBTfMo

I shoot the tree, the tree dies, the AI wizard is revealed.. I attack the AI wizard with a spider, the spider bites instead of webs.

It appears sometimes spiders don't recognize when a web or tree containing a wizard has been destroyed (because its default attack against growths is to bite.. with a couple of exceptions, such as shadow wood).

[A separate minor issue] In this video you can also see how the tree 'rattles' before the bow is fired, this is because it starts its death animation early..

..this acts as a precursor (or tell) which lets you know prematurely when an attack is going to succeed on it, i.e, when firing a magic attack at a tree (or any kind of ranged attack) if the tree moves from side to side before the attack connects with it you know it's going to die.

Yes I witnessed this again recently to viewtopic.php?f=7&t=5990

Do we reckon the most likely candidate for causing this is when a ranged attacked (bow, rock, bolt, MA, disbelieve) dismounts the wizard from a magic tree/ele/uni/manti and then a spider follows up after?

..or have we seen this happen when a wizard is dethroned by an adjacent melee attack first? I can't recall.

I think I even recall a rare instance of a blob or crystal wall being removed from around a wizard and a spider following up with a lunge attack, instead of a web attack, as if the wizard was still trapped.

(I added 'disbelieve' to the list of ranged attacks because it would be really interesting to see if this bug can be recreated by disbelieving a mount from under a wizard before going in with a spider attack)

In this event, Bosko and I were battling a relentless, prancing conjurer. I was atop my trusted elephant, besieged on all sides. Spider webbed my ele, something meleed it, maybe a lion, it fell, the next spider came up and bit me without a web: dead.
