Bug in Labyrinth? a stash with translucent stone walls

I've come across another stash surrounded by translucent stone walls in a Labyrinth.
AFAICR, the wand of digging only works on translucent rock walls.
Is this a bug created by the following no longer able to breakup walls?
(1) the wand of disintegration; and
(2) Lee's Rapid Deconstruction

Disintegration could never destroy stone walls.

So it seems you should have Shatter or be with Lugonu (assuming Labyrinth can be corrupted) to get the treasure? Good luck with having Shatter castable by the time you find a labyrinth...

There's a bailey like this as well, where the entrance before you enter it has some awesome axe inside that cant be retrieved. Pretty awesome when the bailey itself happens to drop garbage. For new players, they have no idea whats up and probably waste time on it. Veterans just realize its a waste of pixels.

Nobody has said this explicitly so far - LRD doesn't let you bust open walls any more.

That said, these vaults can be entered with Passwall. I think they should probably be removed, but you don't need Shatter to get in.

Passwall only lets you go through rock, not stone.

Carry a distortion weapon, unwield until sent to the Abyss, grind to get Shatter or Corruption online, loot!

There's transparent rock and transparent stone? That distinction seems totally unnecessary now.

RIP LRD

I wish passwall could take you through stone walls. Why can't it? Perhaps it could be made to take a *lot* longer to do so.

Re: Bug in Labyrinth? a stash with translucent stone walls

The point of stone walls is to prevent you from being able to break the wall or pass through it*. So it's good that you can't passwall through it.
This is also why transparent stone exists, for when you want to show something inside a vault but don't want the wall to be breakable.

*if I don't mention that shatter exists someone will say "but what about shatter huh?"

But in the case of the OP vault, this means the loot is impossible to get. I for one find that extremely frustrating as a player. With the bailey vault axe you can at least in theory learn shatter late-game if you really want it. No one has shatter in the labyrinth; thus there's no way to get inside the vault.

Why not make one of the squares translucent rock in this case?

The bailey vault axe is actually encased in unbreakable stone if I'm remembering what you're talking about. You can't ever get it, even with Shatter.
