Its a conspiracy I tell you. Within the next 3 weeks there will be giant boxes EVERYWHERE. Probably retribution for all their fallen (smashed?) comrades. Fortunately the barrels and vases havent joined in, or everything would be lost.

Fear the boxes people. Fear the boxes.

...and when I think back to how I mocked that Kobold in Bawdry's warehouse: "Yark, yark," he cried as he lay dying, "me hate big boxes."

It was sheer prophesy I tell you. The Boxes will destroy us all.

You other kobolds can't deny,
When a shaman walks in with a little bitty urn,
and a big crate in your face you get SMASHED!

We are having some problems with zoning challenges by "BIG BOX" stores.
Perhaps one of those Mega retailers has bought into or perhaps bribed some of the programers. So as to get us used to the idea of "BIG BOXES" being part of the landscape.
AS we get used to them in game, we become less concerned as they appear IRL. Eventually the shear power and prescence we exert IRL warps the reality matrix of non gaming citizens, so as to conform with our world view. Allowing the "BIG BOX" retail stores to multiply and take over the landscape. Eventually reducing all to mindless wage slaves working for them directly, getting our food, entertainment, housing and even educations from a single MEGA retailer. Creating a classed society, based only on which Retailer we serve.

Your the weirdest most evil person ever.

Why on earth could one want "devs" to shutdown a harmless funny thread?

(and devs don't have time to moderate forums, they have other people for that.. appropriate called moderators)

I think you will find that the appearances of unusally large boxes is the beginning of the introduction of advertising into the DDO community.

Very soon, the boxes will begin to appear with catchy, recognisable slogans such as Subway Eat Fresh! and Always Coca Cola.

Once the Big M infriltrates and takes over the market, there will be a huge number of shiny golden arches vieing for position with the Colonel.

Enhancements will be reset again, with such feats as Dwarven Pepsi Max Toughness.

On the plus side, the money coming in from product placement to Turbine will quickly jump into the billions, resuting in a presonal in game GM for every toon, and a new mod being developed and released every 3 hours, so that everyone complaining that there is not enogh content will be sated.

Level Cap will increase to 350 within a matter of weeks, and soon a core group of gamers reachine this level will take over Stormreach from the inside.

I figured it out they are making the boxes bigger so we can run a mass computer model on Quantum Superpositions !!!! A La Schrödinger's cat. I'm gonna smash boxes till I find one of the furry little critters, alive or dead.

i see a couple of up sides to this ... if the cat is alive you've got a familiar, if its dead I have a new hat :D

You should check out the box in The Ruined Halls quest, in House K.

It's the largest one I have seen, you could fit Velah in it.

But don't break it. I'd hate to see the slime that comes out of THAT box :P

Hail Adventurers!

Submitted the bug report on it as soon as the Mod was released or quick fix they did.

Anyway submitted another bug report because there is actually a quest which one interfers w/. The Kolbolds New Ring Leader. Guard Gung's badge is difficult to get to. The box now actually extends into your area and blocks click targeting on the door. Backspace works but using the U key told my sister that the door was blocked.

I said it is difficult to get to because I showed my sister where to jump, plus the Jump clicky spell, and she then was able to jump up and go around the crates to the inside and then break the box. Was on my cleric and we all knew Clerics can't jump.

?Anybody else find any other quests where they interfer w/ the quest? The other solution above form Mages would be like Fireball maybe. It is a barred door so you would think that the blast should go through unless they nerfed that.

Keep your bow string and fletchings dry,

When you open the door, the big box (tm) gets smashed by the door..

Walking past it then targeting it and shooting it with an arrow will also work. :)

Except that the box is so large that you can nieither (a) target the door, or (b) when using backspace and U to open the door, it is blocked by the crate.

I've found that ranging the box works. But that's still kinda lame.

Woulda been cool if the boxes had halloween themed prizes, or mobs, or both. You smash one box and get a handful of candy, you smash the next and a cr5 zombie starts attacking you.

And the Zombies would be wearing "Have a nice day." t-shirts.

(b) works. You can't click on the door, but you can backspace and U.

Every time I've tried that, I get a "The door is blocked by the crate" message.

I guess it really depends on the location of the box... and since it's clearly a bug, there may be different locations where it works and where it doesn't.

Actually, I just logged in and took a character in there just to try that door out and was unable to select-use the door with the box in the way. I also didn't remember the second box being there previously, so it's quite possible that the guy I was duoing with had already taken care of that box prior to my arrival :D
