Crystal Portals and Corrupted Portals

Has anyone had an issue with these not sending you to the desired location?  I try to go to Sanctuary and it sends me to Shame.  Shame sends me to Wind.  I'm not sure if this has been addressed elsewhere, but just wanted to make people aware their portals might not be as accurate as they wish.

    I don’t use these a lot but the one I use works fine when I go to Destard every night.

    I think EC has these issues.  Talking takes you to the correct place.

    Shouting the name is the workaround, here is the Real solution

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    We should not have to edit game files to fix things....

    Yeah, they were never fixed by dev. There is also the map bug which I fixed, and if I can do myself next is the journal bug. 

    Would be nice if we can remove shard bound and add search to jewelry case ourselves.

    Haven't had a problem but I do wish they were always set to public with no option to secure them by owner/co-owner/friend.   Too many people have them on their steps and forget to open up the security making them unusable to passerbys.

    I have mine for public use, but its a classic castle, so with no outer ledge, they're inside, so hard to think theyre there although I have a board stating that they and an ankh are just inside... its a shoddy hood with all those bog things ganging up on wanderers, lol

    Castles should be granted the chance to put that stone ledge at the front, like the new ones have...

    On the classic castle, you can put the portal on the steps, but you have to stand on the ground in front of it to use it.

    Yes, the steps however are 4 tiles.. already used. The stone ledge would adress the issue that the regular castle only has 4 tiles to put things in place, unlike all new castles that have the whole front with that ledge...
