Solution: Simply turn the area into an "inside" area so it autodismounts.

Then how would one leave the front door and not fall to their doom?The stone is always clear on my pvp server. There is so much crap to push or mind control you off the side. It would be dumb to sit up there.

Autodismount? right, so then when I go to leave Naxx i just jump off and fall to my death instead of using my flying mount. ya autodismount is a GREAT idea.

"Solution: Simply turn the area into an "inside" area so it autodismounts."what happens when you need to get away from the stone (to repair, etc), you need to mount up to leave the stone..bad design is the problem, having the summoning stone in a tiny area with 4 entrances. Would have been better if they had made the stone on the ground underneath Naxx

"bad design is the problem"Indeed. Make Naxx bigger. Why not? It's certainly bigger on the inside anyway.

Yes it can autodismount, not the whole thing, but make mounts only available on the actual ledges between the pillars and the problem is solved.Stop being assholes to the person who said it and actually THINK a little bit for yourselves as I just did and you won't look like morons.

They'renot being assholes, they're all right topoint the problems out. There are dozens of issues with an auto dismounting zone, especially a very small one, especially when putting the stone elsewhere is a good solution and especially considering it wouldn't be a problem if it weren't for jerks.Just imagine the complains of people who suffer just a brief lagspike who "auto-dismounted" too early/late and died, Woot, that'll be fun, asking people to stand right on the ledges? From experience Latency+ledge walking = masses of complaints... Just look to eye of the storm.There are, quite simply, better solutions to this problem than coding in a special dismount zone for the sake of a few jerks. Some solutions are in the power of the players.... bring a warlock, get off your collective-guild butts and be ready for the raid in advance or be prepared to make the very short flight from Dalaran if it's that stressful.

What SINisterWyvern said. Some people are so quick to dismiss a simple idea because they'll be damned if they're going to spend more than 1 second processing it.Just to be perfectly clear: The immediate area around the stone should dismount players. A little farther out, there could be enough room to step on and mount up.

No no, I think fall to the doom is pretty good.So long as they add a "Leaving group whilst inside naxxramas will port you to the graveyard." feature, mention it in the patch notes, all the idiots that cause the problem won't know what's going on.. and we all get hours of entertainment.Sometimes being a jerk is part of natural selection.

That would work, but only to a certain extent. Many mounts are so big that they would cover the stone area anyway. There's not enough room in there, simply as that. IMO they should put the stone on the ground below Naxx, like the stone for the Temptest Keep Dungeons.

I'm tired. What I actually meant was a viable solution was the whole "you have entered a no-flying zone" thing, I guess a straight autodismount would annoy some people (though you people with your huge-ass mounts deserve to fall).

As a Druid I'd be fine with it being an auto-dismount area. ;)
1-23-2009 @ 10:15AM
There's enough space in there so that you can mount on the sides and auto dismount near the stone (something they should impliment btw). Only an idiot who is aware of his lag would be stupid enough to rush to the side. And the one who is not, well lag happens and you should have expected that possiblity given the current state of the realms right now... you lived with it before, live with it again.
They should just make it like Dalaran. You can mount and 'get off the platform' but if you stay on the platform, it would kick you off your mount, like flying over dalaran or WG does. easy peazy.

Auto-dismount could work. They just have to move naxx a little to the east, so that it's over water. Then even non priest/mage/druids could fall safely. :-)It makes sense also, because necropolises are clearly mobile and even the undead can appreciate the beautiful view of a river during sunset.

whee! autodismount! then watch the newly awesome buffed elemental shamans knocking people off with thunderstorm on pvp servers!!

Matchu- Haha, I was thinking the same thing... then saw everyone flaming you. You must be a druid. Instant Cast Swift Flight form FTW!!!As far as crowding around the stone... well this isn't a problem on a PVP server. On Ravenholdt, it seems at times that the Naxx summoning area has more or less become an official battleground. It isn't uncommon to see a post announcing that we now have the Naxx Stone. I've never seen it void of players, one faction or another is constantly there ganking anyone too slow to make it into the instance. Beware the Death Knight!!! Of course, since there are more Belf Ret Pallies than there are Alliance on my server, you can guess how often we get to use the summoning stone.... in fact, I don't think I have ever been summoned to Naxx by anything other than one of our warlocks.
