Hmph, my talk page seems to have vanished. Let's fix that. ;-) --MentalMouse42 (talk) 01:43, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

"Lightning Auras block the rope extension" on Ropes[edit source]

Could you explain what that means? Lightning Auras (I assume you mean the sentries) aren't placeable so I can't imagine how they would block a rope. -- Breathlessblizzard (talk) 14:21, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

I was making a hellevator and using the Aura sentry to probe for nearby caves. As it happened there was one directly below me -- I tossed a Scarab Bomb to break through and started running rope, but I found that the rope extension was stopped by the edge of the aura itself. I couldn't extend it to the ground until I moved the sentry elsewhere. And yes that's weird, which is why I thought it worth mentioning. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 10:28, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
Could you do me a quick favor and test it again? I just tried the following and strangely, could not reproduce:
  • Dig a hole to the Underground Layer
  • Place a Lightning Aura Staff sentry at the bottom of the hole
  • Hold left click at the top of the hole with Ropes so they extend downwards
After trying all that, the rope passed through the aura like it wasn't there. What did you do differently? -- Breathlessblizzard (talk) 12:47, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
Huh. I'm not sure what the difference would be. I was digging a box around one of my corruption biomes. Let me go try it again in-game... Nope, now I can't reproduce it either. Bah. OK I've gotta remember not to wiki such odd occurrences without make sure I can reproduce them.... Feel free to revert. --MentalMouse42 (talk) 13:33, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
Hah, no worries, it really be like that sometimes -- Breathlessblizzard (talk) 13:52, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
