Not able to get shards at crystal formations

Post by Aveline » Thu Nov 03, 2016 8:07 pm

I was going to collect shards today and at 3 different crystal formations, I keep getting the 'Huh?' message when I use the 'Pick' command. I tried with two different positive formations and one air formation. This worked just a couple of days ago.

Yes, I was holding a pick that I have used before to get the shards.

Did the crystal have pickable growths on it?

Other than that I have no idea otehr than a few client side issues. I once aliased pick for something else and have to use my client's Null character to get it to send just the normal "pick" command to teh mud
I trained up double-edged bananas because the uber-plantain of doom I scored from the beehive quest was the best weapon in the game. Now it's being treated like a bug and they have gimped its damage! That's not fair! My character is ruined!

Isn't there normally a different echo though when it runs out of shards?

Code: Select all

pick
You do not see any easily pickable shard on the crystal formation.
You're right...., I think it's character specific then, or formation specific then, I just got my 5 shards just fine without using detect hidden or searching for it even.

Try, quitting and relogging and trying again at the same / different formation?

Only other thing that comes to mind is that there is something else in the room or on the character that has a function operate by the keyword pick. like thieves tools or something.

It was a box in inventory that was keeping it from working. My only guess is that it thought I was trying to use the 'pick lock' skill maybe.

This is the case, there is an object with the same trigger present.
A goblin, a trickster, a warrior? A nameless terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. A most feared being in all the cosmos. Nothing could stop, hold, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
