    Well, I was curious if anyone discovered this nice bug.
    When you overweight TNO so that he can't move, you can leave the area you are in instantly, just by clicking on the leaving point. I found it realy helpful in Rubikon.

    That's not a bug.

    Any party member can initiate area transitions, carrying the whole party with them.

    Yeah, but when the party member, who is "clicking" on the way out, is standing, disabled by all the weight, somewhere in the middle of area, even when the leaving point is not reachable, that's something different, I think.

    Try it. It will instantly bring the world map (or just new area, if that is the case) no matter where are the other companions. I didn't try it with others than TNO, because he's the only one with weight allowance as low as 50 lbs. (62+- lbs is enough to stop him)

    Anyway, it's weird enough you can sneak with Annah through whole Baator and easily get the others to the Pillar of Skulls (in her back pack I asume - wait, where has it she?) and so...

    Have you noticed that the second you click on an area transition with one party member, all the others start walking over as well?

    What you are describing isn't a bug, unless you are soloing.

    No, it is a bug. He's not talking about the other party members walking to the exit. This is something that you can do any time you want, even when soloing. At least, this method is (I haven't done it via encumbering TNO);

    There is another, easier way to do this. Click the exit and then ASAP right-click to bring up the menu. Click the attack button and select any weapon (but don't attack anything). Then right-click again to close the menu. You will be instantly brought to the next area as if you had reached the exit.

    Another similiar bug (at least I think it's a bug) that is useful when crossing hostile areas, though you need to have been there before, is to hit 'm' for the map as the area loads. Then scroll to the exit and order your group there, then switch back to the map and you see your group (the green circles) going across the map and then an area load screen pops up as you reach the exit.

    The reason this is useful is that when you do this about 75% of enemies and even some traps ignore you. However it's uses are limited as it is rare that you will visit a highly hostile area repeatedly.
