Levequest abortedFollow

I just got this messege when I was doing a leve, I was low on hp after killing a target so decided to stun the other one in the group and run in passive mode to heal a bit, but after a while i got the messege "the carnivarous coblyn leaves combat" and at the exact same time another messege saying "levequest aborted" and i cant reactivate is just like a fail.

I have been playing since alpha and its the first time I have seen this, has anyone seen this before?, does anyone know if its intended? or what I was thinking is could it be a bug with the multiple servers, all i have seen on lodestone is that leves will fail if you leave the area or logout however if its because of that (was still in the vicinity of drybone at the time there should be a timer imo.

I was just wondering if anyone else had seen this before and if anyone knows why I got it, I run when I need to heal alot and have never seen this before, once I even ran across the map and didnt see it which leads me to beleave its from to my conclusion of an issue using multiple servers, but thats from what I have seen so i need a wider image of the issue.

Like you said, it was probably because you "left the area." You should have gotten a system message in your log notifying you that you were "leaving the area." I've had this happen before, but it was more obvious when I did it. I left the nanawa mines during a leve and it aborted.
In your case, it may or may not have something to do with how they split up the zones in the recent patch. Drybone is near a level 4/5 zone so maybe going 10 steps in the wrong direction caused you to change zones and abort. I'm guessing.

I had this happen last night with my LS group. Basically it's caused by the new servers they added in. See, with the new servers they also adding in more zone/transition lines. You may have already noticed it in the cities. When you cross one of the zone lines, it abandons your leve, no matter how close you are to the target location.

So for example, we were running leves last night at Humblehearth. The target was on the upper level of the area. Since the map isn't always clear, we ran underneath it. One of the members in my group had her leve abandoned almost immediately. I didn't run quite as far as she did, so my leve remained active. Upon investigation, it turns out that it was indeed a zone line.

In your case, you stated that you often run to heal during your leves. The problem is that you now run the risk of crossing a zone line. The zone lines aren't clear so it's tough to tell when you hit one unless you have others near you who have their name grey out and vanish for a bit. I suppose at this point the best thing you can do is figure out where the new zone lines are and avoid them.

I didnt recive any system messeges exept "the carniverous coblyn leaves combat" which is what has been confusing me, or i would agree with you. its the fact that i didnt see any messege that makes me think its a bug

I don't know, I've never gotten any messages when crossing a zone line or changing areas. I have system messages turned on in both my chat and battle windows, so I'm not sure how you are seeing that?

The one about the coblyn was the usuall one that you get when you run from combat, basicly when the mob stops looking for you, but it was the same time as I got the levequest aborted messege, I know its not relevent to the leve being canceled. What they need is a messege saying "You are leaving the levequest area, the levequest will be abandoned in 10 seconds" then you would have time to run back.

Oops sorry, that post was supposed to be in response to chopstx about him seeing the "leaving area" messages. My bad.

Also I do agree with them notifying you when you are about to leave a leve area. That would be very nice to have.
