    I completely forgot to mention this on the last patch thread.

    More slayer fixes:
    Kraken, Shipwreck Kraken and Lock Lake Monster are not taking damage from the reptile slayer. I know there's more but I always forget to write them down. I'll try to update more as I can.



    Also, cutting up spined, horned and barbed leather footwear produces leather with the correct name but with the regular (-1) hue.

    I would like to see the safe tile fixed at turtle bay, there are many people using it to avoid being killed, to the point where people actually have it marked to be able to recall in without consiquence.

    I believe I already fixed that, but if it is still a problem let me know.

    I disagree with allowing the harrower gate to be dispelled. It just feels like an unnecessary protective measure. This is not pre-era, in-era, or post-era (to my knowledge) accurate. It's an essential tool for those looking to join/disrupt harrowers.

    Let's face it, it's only essential to those looking to disrupt harrowers. People attempting to join will obviously be prompted by their group for the location. I think anything that helps make harrowers more easily done in secret is for the better, especially in light of recent changes.

    For this very reason it should not be changed. We are a small population. A small population of people that will be able to summon the harrower and an ever smaller population of people that will be able to raid one.

    Whether you're TT/COM/Mindless/PFR'sThief/5D or anyone else wanting to have some fun disrupting things, it's not just limited to one group with a history of raiding.

    This also prevents those wanting to disrupt simply by taking a slice of the pie without consent.

    Which is why I'm in favor of it. The way the harrower works now makes it more detrimental than ever for hour spawn to be found as it directly effects the amount of platinum received for those who put in the work to summon the harrower. The only way you would be in favor of not being able to dispell the gate is if you plan on griefing other people's harrowers.

    The gate currently stay's open as long as the harrower is alive. Given the location and how you get to the room that does not make any sense. With IRC, Voice Chat. The gate should provide information to the player using the skulls. Other than that it has no purpose. (No one would use it once the harrower is found).

    That's not a fair argument Kane. I don't think anybody would consider me a griefer.. at least I would hope not. I think there should be an element of risk involved in the Harrower. Summoning a monster in the overworld doesn't mean you own it and doesn't entitle you to it's loot table by default.

    Risk is fine, go track dungeons. Don't expect me to think it's fine for you to be able to just periodically check the star room and be handed a free gate to go grief people.

    What are your intentions if not to grief harrowers? I'm not trying to make this an argument but obviously this bears discussion.

    Regarding the treasure map entrance, I feel like when caved in it should not appear at all. There are already instances where people have been camping these spots with insurmountable forces simply because they know exactly where you're going to pop out.

    You pop out hidden, plus you can always just recall from inside the instance.
