What I hate about exploration...

December 06, 2007 01:51PM
I absolutely love exploring well thought out, descriptive areas. Some of the new ones are especially good quality. And area explores always have a ton of story information in then I crave.

But then when you're out and about, looking for any kind of booty or treasure. You check all the obvious spots, then just wander about the halls/tunnels/fields checking for things. You examine what looks like a log or sticks or a rock and suddenly... omg wtf corpse with stuff on it. Usually a key to something important back in key-dangerous-area. Or just really nice loot, that is away from all the nasty mobs and traps where you'd expect it to be.

What ticks me off more, is when you're standing in a mundane, fairly traveled place and again.... OMG WTF, MAGE CORPSE! Yay for sensible wand places. Sooo seeing the pattern there. You can often substitute corpse for a million other nouns that will then describe how 'oh, a mage died here. Leaving a wand. Cute.' happened.

It's great finding this stuff, but I begin to question how anyone else who isn't as anal as me finds it. Am I the only one that examines every god damn noun in a description now?

Edit: Does this kind of thing actually put anyone off exploring in general? Leaves me with a sour taste.

Sorry, Man, but you're (mostly) wrong about the PK competition part.

High h/d can be pretty forgiving

I understand that stoneskin and protection are all you need for general PK.

Scrimbul December 06, 2007 09:16PM

Well, stoneskin, protection, and call blood nt

Sam December 06, 2007 05:53PM

Wands are meant for people who are as anal as that.
