    Default Tor: Clicked on the exit portal instead of the loot?

    Lol @ Tor:

    Cleared to all 3 dragons getting ready to make a sweep, took a LONG time.

    Get to the black dragon, take him and giant down.

    Go to look...let's start with the piles...one..two..then ZONE!

    There oughta be a law...

    Way back (I don't remember how long ago) I was doing one of the harbor quests with a rope at the end and clicked on the rope instead of the chest. I was so mad

    I suppose if we asked for a confirmation people would object to it taking too long. I think they shouldn't put loot in a position where you can mistakenly click the exit instead of the loot.

    Had this happen before the the fight, too - entering the portal instead of using the shrine.

    After two times I am really careful now.

    You aren't the first, you won't be the last.

    Yes, I've done it as well and it sucks.

    Did this in ToD after the shadows, also, I decided to shrine before looting because we were waiting for something (maybe a DC'd player? can't remember) to open the chest- so I missed that too.

    (And later in that run I absentmindedly left my trophies in the chest because I wasn't looting them in case someone wanted to trade a ring I wanted...which never happened, but I never ended up taking them anyway. I was pretty brain dead, I guess)

    I did it too. Once. After that, I just started opening chests with [Select Object] [Use Object] keys instead of clicking

    If you /stuck on the other side of the portal it will put you back in the treasure room. You can't move around before you do it though so it's usually too late to fix it by the time you realize what you have done.

    The law in Tor is: You get the box first then piles of trash later.
