So, last night, I help some people with a coffer. We farm up the key, we search for the coffer. Eventually, I go check the spawn point that requires you to go through the Glacier to reach. Well, I find it there, so eventually, we get Legult his Old Gauntlets. As we're leaving, I snap the following screenshot:

I didn't realize I was taking a picture right as we're zoning. I don't know if it's this way for PC gamers, but for xbox and ps2, when you snap a picture, your console locks up for a second. Well, it just so happens, I locked up at the zone line, and this caused me to skip it. Whilst my party members found themselves in Batallia, I found myself somewhere entirely different.

At the end of the stairs, I found a gateway... to... nothingness. That's right. A portal if you will. Here are the pictures:

I noticed that through this gateway to another dimension, I could actually see back into other sections of reality, as evidenced by the last picture above. I contemplated entering this gateway, although I felt a force keeping me from doing so. In the end, I opted to return the way I came. I'll leave the exploration of the unknown to more scientific minds.

Almost like being able to see the inside of my head while sitting close to a wall.

LOL I'm almost tempted to try skipping a zone line just for fun.

I feel like a hacker. I tried a couple times to recreate the issue in brand new places, like the Al Zahbi zone line in Wajoam, but I haven't gotten it to work yet. Looks like your timing has to be dead-on.

Please, by all means people, experiment and post your cool new screenshots here. Let the 'hacking' begin! ^^

(And if anyone can tell me why my screenshots are so dark, I'd appreciate it. It's on XBox 360.)

Heh, thats a pretty cool little trick. Although I suspect using it might get you flagged as a bot if you are in a zone with mine points.

I never took any screenshots, but I had to rezone from whitegate from some reason a week or so ago; I used flee, zoned into Al Zahbi, went to zone back and crossed the zone line. Now I'm wishing I had bothered to SS it. >_>
