Thread: Mob's last will

    Mob's last will

    Who can give me at least one good reason why root/snare/debuff etc has to be casted on you just a second before mob's death? Why such attack are not fight openers for a mob? Or is it done just to annoy players?

    Unhappy Yep.


    I've been rooted at the beginning of a battle, and at the end.

    It's just the ones at the end that tick me off, and make me remember them...

    Not perfect AI, but I've seen worse...

    maybe they are about to die and try to do a root/snare and run.... then forget they are stuck on /follow and arnt allowed to retreete and pull 20 other mobs to come kick your butt

    Hehe, i dont know why but i have only one idea about this: they trying to say: "Listen pal, i am about to die. Could you wait here till i come back from reclaim... we will continue."

    And an absolutely different issue about reclaim. Once as a crat i got a mission to kill a bad (i hope) guy with a ritual dagger of QL 1. This way he suppose to die forever. Well... i got him to 5 percent of his life, called back my pet and tried to stab him. Hehe, i was about 35-40, mob was orange, i was doing like 3-5 damage with that dagger. Could you guess whether i killed him in a rutual way?

    the mobs are most likely scripted in a way, and they are programmed to debuff after a certain time passed since combat started.

    Coincidence (or poor planning) made mob death and mob debuffings occur around the same timeframe.

    This is purely speculation, and I have no facts to back it up with.
    But it sounds reasonable, doesn't it?

    I have to say that you might have a point there... I think it is a timer matter. May as well be.

    And again, a story off topic. Yesterday for the first time since i play AO i saw that an animal mob (Shade of lvl 17-18 smth) casted a nano spell on my char (low level MP) - Agility debuff smth. Hehe, and you guys saying nobody uses such nanos
    And yes, it was the first time i saw animal mob casting anything at all... I guess they arent so dump after all
