Misplaced wildlife

Post by PaulR » 30 May 2015, 16:23

Spotted a mudcrab and a couple of slaughterfish on a bridge at Sadrith Mora. They made it all slippy causing me to fall off.

0.36/Mint 17

I had the same thing: one mudcrab and two slaughterfish on the bridge leading to the Telvanni Council House. It manifested after upgrading to 0.36, although that might be a coincidence.

Still, it's an odd sort of glitch to be replicated so exactly. Something must be going on...

Jumping on the opportunity that was left open:

Also noted in a hideout somewhere in the Ascadian Isles - couple o' slaughterfish on a cave floor!

For what it's worth, this happened from time to time in the stock game. I always assumed it was a misplaced spawn point that never got fixed, but I never bothered to look into it. Just smacked the fish and went on with my life.

Yeah, that was my first thought. If it wasn't for someone else reporting the same glitch in the same place with the same three fish, I wouldn't have given it a second thought.

Which doesn't rule out co-incidence and a wonky vanilla script, of course.

To be fair, it is happening near the Telvanni. You never know what they might be doing, the crazy wizards.

Found another one. I've got one swimming around on the walls of Ebonheart, near the Grand Council Chambers.

One sneaked up on my while I was resting on the top of the lighthouse in Seyda Neen, together with its mudcrab buddy :mrgreen:
