Sorcery benches cannot be used at high altitudes

Basic Info:

Platform: Steam
Issue Type: Gameplay
Game Mode: Online Official
Server Type: PvP
Map: Exiled Lands
Server Name: Official server #1098 pvp -
Mods: ‘none’

Bug Description:

No ritual on any of the sorcery crafting benches can be used in high-altitude areas of the map. To attempt to do so will yield “you are too far away” error, regardless where you stand. This applies at least to transportory stone, circle of power and shallow grave.

Discussing with other players who have the issue revealed that this bug might be related to specific areas of the map. Everyone who has it has base in the frozen north: in or further north from map squares numbered 12. This bug appears to be related to altitude, and appears in areas around the volcano or on the same level as Volcanos ground level or slightly below it.

I first reported this issue in october 7th 2023. This has remained unfixed since then!

Bug Reproduction:

Build a circle of power, shallow grave and transportory stone in a base that is near the volcano. Log out, log back in. Attempt to perform any of the rituals on them.

Sounds like a sloppy attempt from the devs to prevent them from being used in sky/floating bases

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:


Its not like it prevents building above that height. Also, the thrall issue doesnt seem like its connected to anything. Thralls (or at times even NPCs) dont work in the volcano. It also just doesnt affect the portal stones.

If the issue was restricted to portal stones I COULD theoretically believe this was an attempt at fixing skybases. But it isn’t, it affects every sorcery bench that has an animation involved in using it. It affects thralls, it affects NPCs. Its because the map is broken and pathfinding doesn’t work. This is why even NPCs sometimes just stand still unmoving. This is why thralls stop moving and teleporting to the player at sufficient distance.

Devs have just massively broken their own game and its been unfixed since september.

Thank you so much for your report and thorough information.

I reported this issue and we will try to investigate it as soon as possible, meanwhile, we appreciate your patience.

If any more information pops up, feel free to reach out to us :smile:

Just to note, unless it’s someone extremely stupid, transportory stones are not used for skybases.

They’re large, awkward to place and if you accidentally leave it on it’s inviting someone into your dirty little secret.

Summoning circle is common.

Confirmed. Top of Westwatch keep won’t let me activate a stone
