Cannot Reproduce Blackthorn Dungeon

I seemed to have replicated the blackthorn dungeon client crash again today.
Here's what I did in similarity to yesterday when it happened.

Upon killing the first wave at the mini spawn, I casted summon fey spell. 4 of them, and I said "all kill" to attack the tower. I had a shadow wisp on me, and was in wraith form. I also began casting lightning, using a UO macro Lightning/last target repeatedly.

almost half way thru damaging the tower, it seems like several lightnings happened, some from me, some from the feys, and the tower too casted it. As soon as I took damage, i lost connection, and could not log back in for several minutes.

I was finally able to log back in and tried a second time to replicate it, and nothing happened. The tower was damaged and the second wave of the mini spawn popped up as usual.

Going to edit this to say client crash as it is actually not a crash of the server and I don't want any developers reading this to get confused.

It seems it maybe creates a graphics or packet issues so that each time you login you get a client crash until after it cycles through and fixes itself on the next wave.

I can add, that I generally attack the tower with 5 feys and cast spells other than lightning on it. Over 300 blackthorn points doing that and no crash. That's about 60 invasions worth.

CC myself
I went back down and reported the problem that (I) discovered.
Magus, if you recall, you and Brosephine were down there, and it wasn't until I showed up that the client crashed.
So I personally think it has to do with my lightning macro. I could be wrong, but that's the best that I could replicate. I haven't done 60 invasions however, so it apparently has something to do with my client crashing it while doing my macro at a certain time during the tower. The second time it crashed, I wasn't using pets, nor had any other chars down there.

Do you think its a possibility your lightning script is doing this? I mean, has anyone experienced this without Noah being there?

I don’t use a script per se, it’s just a lightning macro with last target attached.
Like I said, it also seems to only happen when there’s a cu sidhe attacking and pixies are casted. That’s the only common things I have noticed.

So some minor behind the scenes edits were added to Blackthorns dungeon. Please report AGAIN if the issue happens. If you do a bunch of runs and it also does not happen please let us know that as well.

In the mean time I am marking this as "Awaiting Feedback".

So have we seen this issue AT ALL again @Noah? Since Blackthorns is open right now could you try to replicate it again.

So I did it...
Heres how.
We killed the spawn first level.
Upon destroying the lighthouse, I casted summon Fey (5) of them.
Gunthers char used the cu sidhe and attacked the lighthouse
I casted lightning bolt on it and I locked up and cannot log back in.
Gunther however did not client crash...

I tried repeatedly to log in and couldnt on that char. (Kermee)
Finally after several minutes I was able to log in.

I still think it's something to do with animations.

Did Gunther notice if it was right as the light house changed or is it the lightning spell itself?

Whe you are able to log back in, are the fairies still there?

He had no problems with it at all. In fact, he was able to complete taking down the rest of the lighthouse, and started taking on the second wave of the spawn before I could get back in.
