Oh, the frustration… I realize it’s probably not a bug, but it sure is - irritating… and would be nice to have it changed.
Take your wolf pet (or any) into the Midnight Grove dungeon.
Once in, kill all the hyenas and go down the left path and kill more hyneas.
Reach a path, through a tree, that goes out on a cool branch to another opening…
… and then see a cool glowing green something.
Awesome. Then wait, so you can have a good ‘save’ point before moving on (auto saves), and peek around the corner to see some friendly wolves - 4 mind you… ah, nice distance, oh wait - they see you and run to you and then you find yourself up against a tree… (cant climb… oh, no)… and you cant flip, jump, etc. out of the way.
you are pinned with 4 wolves trapping you - and you die, of course.
So… it loads, completely naked, and pet wolf? Heh - well doubt its dead… wasn’t enough time with them focused on me.
But, you know how the story goes, you have to go hunt your wolf down and reselect ‘follow’
(This should definitely change)
… but how to do this, your completely naked - and not just that, but EVERYTHING has respawned. Extremely frustrating and disappointing.)
A quick run through, past everything, and… no wolf.
I know, you probably think its dead - doubt it.
So reload… and… it starts me at the BEGINNING of the dungeon! GRRRRRRRRRR!!!
No pet - why no pet? Doesn’t make sense, I respawn there, (pre-death, mind you… an older save. Aparently the character, in a dungeon, will not keep its save position and has to start from the beginning on log out - not cool - at all (don’t really care how many other games do it) - especially when my pet… yep, you guessed… does not respawn beside me.
Instead Im expected to chase down my pet in both scenarios…
The first, running naked through the dungeon, and the other, equipped, but with the same chance of still not finding it.
Very beautiful dungeon - but after mucking around with it for over an hour - disappointing, and makes me not want to touch another dungeon.
Hey, I get it - its for PVP, but people play single player… is there any reason that the character starts at the beginning each, and every time there is a log out/log on? If so, please let the pet start at the beginning .
- Oh, the last frustrating bit… teleport out, and guess what? Im not even where I started the dungeon - Im in Sepermeru (spelling?) Dang, I mean far away from where the entrance is… and not knowing where the heck my pet is. (Again, missing both on save before death and save after…)
Im really enjoying Conan, cool there is another dungeon coming out - but now… not so sure - I truly hope this gets reworked. (Sorry, its late, hopefully its somewhat coherent - and yes, Im fresh out the game, and frustrated now.)
