Just letting the Developers know. Guy kept hiding inside the central structure where he could not get hit....the moment he got out and was attacked he went "inside" again to avoid damage.
Employed siege from hidden spot to kill guards too

You can only see a part of his alliance shield, the character itself is "invisible"

    That might not even be his fault. Sometimes the collision on objects are nonexistent for individual players depending on their computer. On my old Macbook, there were lots of times where the terrain south of Sejanus and Nikel didn't load and I could fall "through" the ground while other players walked above me. The Bruma dolmen is another place something like that has happened.

    I'm not making excuses. If you'd actually looked at any of the multiple screenshots I provided, you'd notice that over the course of many months this sort of physics problem popped up. Something like having the lower third of Cyrodiil inaccessible isn't exactly convenient.

    I've had entire keep walls and such not render for me and was able to walk right in if I had chosen to do so, been feared/dizzying swing'ed inside rocks and under floors and I can't tell you how many people I've seen stuck under the porch at Bleakers running around with their head above ground trying to escape.

    That said, deliberately using a glitch for combat is not kosher.

    If it happens once it is an accident, if you keep going back to the same spot to hide in a glitch, it is an exploit. Stop making excuses.

    By the way, my thing was an example. It’s possible enemy NB can fear you inside that hole. Since it's in Cyrodiil, enemy NB tried to fear while on dolman.

    You be really, surprised what NB; can do. I have seen, so many things due to NB fear. I know for certain it's NB fear. I'm a NB after all (currently).

    Also even watched an ally, accidentally. Fear an enemy, inside a tree. NB fear causes so many bugs. It’s unbelievable, no offense. Even fear enemy underneath keep floor.

    I totally believe this person evolved, is not guilty of any crime. I totally believe it was unintentional. I totally believe,it was NB Fear that caused. This pour soul, go down the drain. I mean hole....

    Agreed it's annoying the game can break, totally agree. At least you can have a laugh about it, unlike the white knight in this thread. It's happened to me, and happened against me. Best thing to do is simply walk away.

    His fault or not, the definition of an exploit is any game system that is not functioning as intended and provides players a unique advantage over others. This has happened several times before and isn't always intentional, but it's up to the player to either exercise that advantage or walk away. Since it can't be reliably replicated, it really falls on zos to fix this before they start banning people like they did with broken gap closers.

    Nah that still happens whenever you gap close into a loading screen, not to be confused with the Molag Bal bunker beneath the anchors.

    This issue has been going on for so long. I had this when I did this dolmen 2 years ago and these 2 DC's kept going inside as soon their health start dropping. At full health they came out to go back in and so on.

    It should get fixed!
