The absurdity of aggro

Postby Tahl » Mon Mar 17, 2008 10:59 am

22:56:14.930 Mohridin's Fireball crits Prince Malchezaar for 4204 Fire damage.
22:56:14.940 You hit Prince Malchezaar for 6. (54 blocked)

Stuff like this makes me wonder why the mobs don't just ignore me, one-shot everyone else, then kite me around for five minutes giggling hysterically. That's what happens in pvp anyway. :wink:

The idea that because I have Righteous Fury cast I am perceived as the bigger threat when I'm hitting like a Kobold is just absurd and funny sometimes.

You forgot to mention the massive amount of burning holy fire that you're hitting the demons with.
Be careful when you argue with trolls, lest you become one.

The "fight" is just a small game. A real tank goes in buck naked save a ripped loincloth while foaming in the mouth and making derogatory comments about the boss' heritage and sexuality.
That's what counts.

People often wonder how an old man in a lioncloth can be called a barbarian and the worst of the worst and to be feared.
Then they wonder how he's still alive, and run.
I have ADHD and OCD...I keep forgetting to wash my hands.

It's not in your pocket. You keep it in one of your 5 backpacks, silly.

Shame Paladins can't use guns, eh?

Or were you planning on throwing it? Can't do that either :P

You gotta remember that this guy has had 80 years of people attacking him AND HE'S STILL ALIVE! He is used to not dying. Now thats a real hero :D

And the book is abosolutely awesome, all pratchetts books are. Massive /cry on the guy getting alzheimers disease :S

EDIT: Not to derail the OP too much, the absurdity of us holding aggro when there is a mage with a fireball the size of his body (gnome) is pretty high. One other thing that is often made fun of on these forums is the female armour. Tiny but stops all but the strongest attacks :D
nerf scissors, buff paper, rock is fine!
