0005150: A bailey that requires levitation to access sometimes does not spawn the potions of levitation required.
bailey_axe_4 requires you to consume a potion of levitation to cross deep water into the bailey proper. However, while playing my HuEE, I encountered the bailey and was not able to enter it due to the potions not being present. I am playing the current version of CDO Webtiles, and my username is Odjn.

Seems like there's a 6.5% chance of no levitation item in this bailey (there could be a ring instead of potions). bailey_axe_3 is even worse, with no levitation items and a rather high chance that the entry room will be cut off from the rest by deep water.

Is this a bug or an intended feature of these maps?

Might be worth changing either way, but I never thought of this as a bug. It's similar in principle to that overflow altar that is surrounded by water/lava.

It is intentional, although the status has been moving: originally, the river bailey gave you either potions or the ring. Then someone decided that we don't have to be that nice -- we can expect a bailey stormer to have one of blink, teleport, levitation.

So it is not a bug but you can change status quo if you like.

There's also a bailey *entry* vault which often requires a means of crossing deep water, but does not provide it.

If anything I'd say having entry vaults that require a means of crossing deep water would be better than the same thing but inside the portal itself - once you've found and made it into the portal, it seems good to always let you (attempt to) clear the whole portal.

I agree with MarvinPA.

_axe_3 no longer generates water at the entrace, _axe_4 now always provides either the ring or some potions of flight.
