I’ve got a question…

06/06/2010 at 11:38 AM (Random, WoW)

Every time the words “Baby… I have a question” come out of my mouth Fealen knows I am about to ask something fairly strange. I have a habit of finding things in the game that don’t make sense to me and asking him why they exist/happen/whatever. He rarely has an answer for me. In fact, the response I typically get is:  “I don’t know! Why do you ask me these things?”

So after his suggestion  that I make a post of those questions, I decided to do just that. And I’m going to make it fairly interesting too. I’ve said before that I do writing outside of my blog. I have two novels that I am working on, plus countless short stories. After I list the questions, whoever can respond with the most answers that seem the most reasonable/make the most sense I will write a short story based around the character of their choice. So you can choose a SAN toon, your main, or a random alt. All I would need would be a brief description of what you would imagine your characters personality to be like, a screen shot of what they look like and any other details you would want in a short story about them.

Now, on to the subject of this entry: The questions. I’ll just write them in list form. Anyone who wants to try to answer them, please verify which questions you are answering. Good luck!

1) Why do ghosts turn into glowing balls when you kill them?

2) How can you kill a ghost with a weapon/spell? They’re ghosts. They’re already dead.

3) Why do my shoulders, which are on fire, not go out after I jump into water?

4) Why are mobs dying twice?

5) How is this considered a robe if there are two pieces to it? (My Mage has a robe on that has the top and bottom separated. I can see my midriff all the way around, but the piece is called a ‘robe’)

6) Why don’t mobs attack you when you attack their friends, especially when they see you do it?

7) Shouldn’t mobs realize, after you kill a certain amount of their people, that they can’t beat you so they should run away?

8 ) Why are the venders so willing to buy body parts?

9) Why don’t all mobs have eyes/skulls/ears/etc. when the quest calls for a certain amount of them?

10) Why do you still have 1hp when you are a ghost? You are dead, you should not have an hp.

11) Why do Hunter pets so easily accept their masters? The Hunter just stands there basically begging the animal to love them while said animal beats on the Hunter until the ‘spell’ is done. I am forever trying to figure this out.

12) If you are flying through a location on a flight path with enemy mobs in it that also fly, why don’t they attack you as they would if you were on your own mount?

13) Why do pets take mobs they are fighting so far away? I know they do their best to keep mobs off of their master, but out of range isn’t all too helpful.

14) How come the bosses just stand still while the raid gathers/gets ready? It takes the tanks getting within a certain range for them to attack. Shouldn’t they attack when the raid isn’t ready to avoid their own demise?

15) Why don’t you ever break any bones when you fall from a height that would shatter any bone upon impact with the ground?

16) What do the mobs do with the body parts they ask you to get?

17) Why are people so lazy? This guy just had me deliver a message to a man across the street from him.

18) How do people who are heavily into RP account for mobs that respawn almost instantly?

19) Why don’t bags get ruined after having bloody body parts in them?

20) Why don’t we get slowed down when our bags are full?

21) Why does water replenish our mana?

22) Why does a piece of bread heal us completely? When I am hurt, I can’t eat bread and be all better.

23) How does the meat off from animals get to be steaks and the like? I am pretty sure I didn’t just sit down and carve the thing up.

24) Why don’t people question the fact that you are giving them so much stuff, including body parts?

25) Shouldn’t there be more concern with a ton of people walking around a city with weapons in plain view? Like, you’d think the guards and people who live there would at least be nervous.

26) Why do mobs stay where they are? After being wiped out a few times, wouldn’t they move to avoid it again?

27) How does killing animals make me more powerful? I feel like it is more that the quest giver has a severe hatred of the animal and just lures unsuspecting adventurers into doing the dirty work.

28) Why don’t innkeepers questions the sudden appearance of people in their Inns? Like, the lack of use of doors would worry me slightly.

29) Shouldn’t people be more concerned about you going into their homes?

30) Why doesn’t my pet have a breath bar when it goes under water with me?

That is all I can think of right now. Maybe I will have another questions post in the future, but for now I will leave you with these. Don’t want to overload you! Oh, also, for anyone who wants a sample of my writing to see what a short story would be similar to, I have split my DeviantArt account into two. The one I’ve linked before (MizteriEngel.Deviantart.com) is now just fanart and the like. For my original works, the link is: FantasieAutor.Deviantart.com.

Can’t wait to see how many people decide to try and answer these questions and the answers I get!

Good luck!

Until Next time!

    Well, well, let’s get things started 😉 I don’t know exactly if these reasons make sense at all.

    1) Because of the mass and energy they hold. When they “die” the mass collides and they get smaller. It’s like a dying sun.

    2) The ghost is dead … well, than maybe it doesn’t live anymore but it still holds a certain amount of energy. If you hit the ghost with your weapon or spell some of this energy is converted into some other kind of energy which cannot be hold by the ghost. So actually the amount of energy in the ghost is becoming smaller.

    3) That’s easy 🙂 It’s magical fire which cannot be doused as long as the mage who enchanted the shoulders is living.

    4) Really, it’s a bug. But what about: They try to be tragic heros who don’t want to die but actually have to. So it’s like the last rearing before final death.

    5) I don’t understand the question sorry 😀 I’m not a caster class.

    6) Sometimes they do, but you have to be in range. Remember: Most of the mobs are cowards and are frightened. The more you stand away the more they act like they couldn’t see you and don’t know anything. Secretly they’re just no teamplayers – like the alliance when it’s about pvp.

    7) They are cowards, but have a real big ego. They will always think they might be better than the one before. But as long as you beat their friends they’re not bothered. (Does this make any sense?)

    8) Fetish!

    9) You just squished exactly that part when you hit the mob. Can’t you be more careful? Nobody can see what it was anymore – no, not even the quest giver.

    10) But you’re not completely dead. Remember this ghost stuff? You have energy to move so as energy is equivalent to health: You need to have at least 1 HP to move at all.

    11) Brainwashing! As I’m a hunter myself I have to admit we brainwash our pets. That’s why they behave so strangely.

    12) The flight path owner made a deal with the creatures living in these areas. According to this binding agreement they’re not allowed to attack any mount belonging to the flight path mount crew otherwise they’ll be instantly executed.

    13) How are they supposed to know when it’s out of range? After all they’re still brainwashed. Anyway maybe the pets aren’t that petish and want to annoy their masters a bit. What else could they do? If they aren’t nice they get no food and are sent away to their way too little cage.

    14) Here fair play comes into account. Some bosses can’t attack earlierer (mostly ToC) and all the other ones feel like they’re overpowered anyway. As I said before, they have big egos and so they can give advantages away.

    15) What for do you have these amazing healing abilities? If you hit the ground you loose health and you might need certain time to recover. During this times your bones heal. Just imagine the new race Worgen, theoretically they have to recover even faster as they’re kinda werewolves.

    16) Fetish! They eat, collect, admire and sell them. Probably not in this order.

    17) For sure you got gold for it, didn’t you? They have the money to do so. That’s the simple answer. There are always people who are too lazy to move their butts just because they have the money to afford other people moving for them.

    18) God’s decisions are miracles? No honestly, they’re just extraordinary and can port themselver over long distances. You’re not fighting off a completely new spawned mob but one that teleported itself quite a distance – because of the ego thing (:D) They just felt like they were designated to beat you up.

    19) It’s this new nano technology. They’re not only hydrophobic but also blood-repellent. Harris Pilton discovered it. That’s why she sells bags for this ridiculous amount of gold.

    20) The bags are never that full that they’d actually slow you down. It’s like the difference between carrying a 100g Choclate bar and nothing. You’re super awesome 🙂

    21) It’s not only water but with certain secret ingredients like … use your imagination 😀 I can’t tell you all the secrets of these rotten mages. And these igredients will convince you fully. Mana is energy (Warlocks know this: they transfer health (life energy) into mana (spell energy)) and energy can’t get lost. All the energy of the area around the water where it was produced is sucked in there.

    22) Have you ever tried? At least you have these amazing healing skills. And well, if you look at your problems form a distant angle they become smaller. Maybe it’s the same with looking at your health, eating a bit bread and think things through again – suddenly you feel fresh and newborn. Everything will be great.

    23) With your amazing fighting abilities you just cut it up to be a steak. Didn’t you notice?

    24) They trust you. After all they like you, maybe even look up to you when you’re exalted and well … You’re their personal hero at being exalted and none could think something bad of you. You’re simply diligent.

    25) Trust is a great thing. And anyway: If everyone has a wapon – no problem – fight me and i fight back.

    26) They are not that intelligent. Have you ever seen a mob that’s actually able to learn? Maybe you could introduce me to him/her?

    27) It’s still practice and without practice you’re going nowhere in life. Don’t flame the quest giver he’s just doing his part to keep you occupied and motivated.

    28) I am no inn keeper but maybe they’re just so used to it … Do you wonder everyday how the microwave works exactly and why your cat is not a big fan of it? I’m not concerned – maybe the inn keeper isn’t concerned either because he has seen it so often.

    29) They trust you. And to be honest, what would you like to steal in the house of some random people? You don’t steal IRL, so why would you do it in their world? After all they adore you (at least if you’re exalted).

    DONE!!! Whuu, this was kinda exhausting and probably you can’t even follow my thoughts but like anyway. Who cares? Happy reading 😀

      Whoa! I didn’t expect anyone to answer ALL of them! I wonder how many other people will attempt. Thank you for your input. I really like some of your answers. Maybe when I have more time I will go back through them and point out the ones I like best. I hope you keep reading my blog; I would love more people who leave fun comments!

    1) The spectral energy disrupted by the damage you have caused creates an implosion within the spirit causing all it to condense into a small solid form

    2)see number 1, your magical weapon disrupts the energy holding them together.

    3)everburning spell, I know you play D&D, so it’s that!

    4)They actually are not dead the first time. you managed to knock them down to exactly 0 hit points which caused them to start falling but then they caught themselves and tried to run but you hit them again and they fall the 2nd time.

    5)it actually is one piece, the middle is made up of a very rare elven material that is almost invisible to the naked eye. It’s there trust me I have stared at alot of half naked blood elves.

    6)lots and lots of Thorazine

    7)they keep thinking if they let their friends beat you up that they will have less work to do and look good for their employee review they are having next week with their supervisor.

    8)CHICKEN McNuggets

    9)in the process of killing the mob you mutilated the part you needed to badly to be used for the quest that needs them.

    10)Blizzard hires poor programmers that don’t know how to program the number 0 into your life bar.

    11)have you seen how stupid dogs are???? they are your friends for life if you give them a piece of bacon.

    12)part of the fee you pay for a flight path is for the flight master to cast an invisibility spell on you so you are safe on your flight.

    13)see shitty programming comment above

    14)all bosses in wow are very very very very very nearsighted. WoW has not invented glasses for monsters yet so they have no way to fix this issue yet.

    15)it is added to the damage you take from the fall

    16)usually some weird cultist spell or a love potion

    17)he thought that guy was on the other continent. he was on vacation and the quest giver got his calendar mixed up or the guy came back early. When you walk 10 feet and the quest giver has to pay you he feels really stupid about paying you 10 silver for that.

    18)how do these same people account for logically having sex with a gnome and a tauren? they are mentally damaged.

    19)glad trash bags as liners

    20)bags of holding

    21)I agree thats stupid, I think Gaterade should replenish mana

    22)magic bread.. ooooooooooooooooooooooooo spooky

    23)you get steaks because the animal had just finished taking the steak from a camp of adventurers and was on their way back to feed their young cubs. You killed the mother took the steaks and left the cubs motherless, nice job dickhead.

    24)see “love potions” they make a bundle turning that crap into useless elixers.

    25)think of viking societies and such. people walked around with weapons all the time. If we had to go to our houses to get our weapons all the time that would take a long time AND BE IMPOSSIBLE since blizzard is too damn lazy to give us player housing.

    26)property taxes there are low and they have really good schools.

    27)experience is gained from taking on things that are challenging and working to improve your skills. It doesn’t matter if it is a kobold or 1,000,000,000 boars you are working to improve your skills and therefore gain levels.

    28)when you set your hearthstone, the innkeeper is asking if you want thier inn to be your home. why would he be surprised when you show up in your own home?

    29)people in the countryside learned long ago to not resist when adventurers come into their houses, it is a very sure way to die.

    30)Cause nobody gives a fuck about bears… bears are evil haven’t you ever watched Colbert Nation???? Nobody gives a crap if a bear drowns. Maybe there would be world peace if a few more bears died.

  3. Koch (Aszune) said,

    1) Ghosts into glowing balls? Obviously the ghostly shape is formed by pure willpower from the ghost. The most energetically stable shape is a ball of the smallest diameter – lowest surface energy and such, so this will be the default shape for anything ghostly.

    2) Kill a ghost? That depends on how you define “kill”. If the process merely describes sending them to a spirit healer for loss of sufficient life energy the process is easy. Battering it with a cold waffle might do it easier, same as subjecting it to home cooking (depending on the skill, of course, not insinuating anything about your work in the kitchen.. err.. let’s stop here).

    3) Shoulders, fire, water? Magnesium. Just be glad they are not made from sodium and actually catch on fire themselves as soon as you immerse yourself.

    4) Mobs dying twice? I don’t understand this one. I think it refers to the feigning death of monsters at low health in severely lagged areas.

    5) Two piece robe? That is purely a term of fashion. I would consider this the same as some girls “underwear” only being loosely associated with the term “wear”.

    6) Mobs and friends? Strict command structure. As long as the boss doesn’t tell them to attack, they don’t attack. This shows the superiority of many mobs as compared to the average PUG, where the hunter will pull when the healer is out of mana and the tank afk.

    7) Shouldn’t mobs run away? Yes, same as they should just hand me one of their babies to avoid the wholesale slaughter of entire villages. The needs of the many should outweigh the needs of the few. However, while they are military competent (see question 6) they are not necessarily intelligent.

    8 ) Vendors buy body parts? Why not! Soylent green is, after all, made from humans. And there is an unlimited supply of meat pie in shops all over the world.

    9) Why don’t all mobs have eyes? This is mostly a matter of how you kill them. Even hunters occasionally manage to put an eye out with a sharp and pointy arrow. The mess is much worse when an angry warrior bashes the poor murloc to a pulp with a two-handed axe.

    10) Why do ghosts have 1hp? As long as the spirit remains, the form is intact. See question one, really. If you had zero health, you’d be a small ball, not dwarf shaped.

    11) Hunter pets are easy? You pointed out the “spell” component already. That’s really all there is to it. Much like Mistress Nagmara and her love potion this effect is irreversible, magical and evil!

    12) Flying through enemy mobs? Flying mobs have learnt early on to conserve energy. Specially trained riding griffons are too fast to catch up reliably, so apart from a feeble swipe as soon as the players enters visible range (this is related to Q14) they don’t want to expend their precious energy on following something. Possibly related to the effect healthy antelopes have on lazy lions.

    13) Why do pets take mobs away? This is the pet equivalent of showing off their gearscore. They are basically saying “Look – I can handle this. Go and have a cup of coffee or something. No need to cast spells or shoot arrows”. This is further shown by the average deathknight ghoul not actually showing this behaviour (undead and flimsy – they don’t need to show off anything).

    14) How come bosses stand still? Shortsighted, the lot of them. As long as players talk quietly – preferrably over an out of game communication system – and stay far enough away, the boss won’t be able to tell them from the scenery. This is made worse by the level design, showing up with irregular patterns in a colour matching the typical heroes armour – or in other words, most players wear camouflage without even trying.

    15) Why don’t you break bones? You do, broken bones from falling heal at the same rate as having the same bones smashed to dust by a towering dragon roughly 20 times the size of my little dwarf. Note: Some games actually provide special effects for broken bones (LotRO for instance).

    16) What do NPCs do with ? Sell them on in bulk to out of country investors. Much like the current banana and gold market there is a market for stinking fish scales that relies mostly on the ship with the package sinking at a predetermined time.

    17) Why are people so lazy? Time efficiency. The armoursmith makes that much money refitting raid-battered gear (and don’t tell me you didn’t notice that) per hour that it is actually in his best interest to pay someone 50 silver to cross the road for him.

    18) How do people who are heavily into RP account for mobs that respawn almost instantly? Shaman mobs. With anks off cooldown. And soulstones.

    19) Bags ruined? They don’t, of course. Same as I am able to transport liquids and even goo inside my bags without spillage. They are impregnated with the finest of gnomish engineering and can hold liquids indefinitely.

    20) Why don’t we get slowed down when our bags are full? The carrying weight of your bags is carefully balanced to allow optimal mobility. Much like special forces packs distributing the weight evenly around the body, so the mageweave blob-bags are designed to take any weight and magically balance it. If you picked up even a single grain more after your bags are full, you’d notice you are slowing down (also: once again done in different games – sometimes better, sometimes much, much worse).

    21) Why does water replenish our mana? Mana being a measure for mental energy, this is comparable to dehydration from sweating over spellcasting. Add to that the fact that most casters are wussy geeks who never saw a gym before this just goes to show: after a fight with jumping and flailing your arms about you need a bit of a rest before you can do it again.

    22) Why does bread heal? It’s _mouldy_ bread. Penicillin in it’s earliest form of development. Of course this’ll make it all better!

    23) How does meat from animals turn into steaks? The process of cooking includes the preparation of the meat. Yes, this does include cutting the bones out and throwing away the intestines. Kitchens are a messy place.

    24) Why don’t people question body parts? A business is a business. If there is a market for body parts they do get bought and sold. More interesting is the fact that you can leave town with an empy bag, come home 20 minutes later with used and battered weapons and a broad scratch across your face and the guard does not bat an eye. The explanation in this case is locally selective law. Murder is only illegal inside towns (and not even there in all cases). You are quite okay robbing other people outside the boundaries.

    25) Concern with armed people? Not really. See question 24. It is illegal to actually break the law inside a town. The town guard would come down heavily on the offender. Actually.. I dare you to commit murder on a shopkeeper in town. You’ll probably find that your character (being more versed in the local law) will refuse to do it.

    26) Why do mobs stay? Once the population of mobs is reduced they will actually find an area more attractive to live in. Less competition in a similar ecological niche will mean that the population will grow quickly. This is not as obvious in the old lands, but can be seen in the Burning Crusade and WotLK areas, where the spawn mechanism actually generates more monsters if several players are killing them.

    27) How does killing animals make me more powerful? Your explanation is likely true, however simply practising your combat skills does actually make you more powerful. Practising on something helpless and easy that still twitches seems like a good idea before taking on dragons and world-destroying demons. Even Arthas himself first drained the soul of a goat when he got around to leveling up.

    28) Innkeepers and sudden appearance of people? Nothing like that can even faze innkeepers in a highly magical world. Translocation (and falling, let’s not forget falling) can make the appearance of a mage (or windrider victim) quite likely in a back garden.

    29) People not concerned enough about their homes? All valuables are stored in secure banks and personal bags. With thievery being outlawec (see question 24 and 25) the World of Warcraft has developed into a friendly neighborhood, where you are welcome to partake of my fish cake if you are in the area.

    30) Why don’t pets have a breath bars? They do. They are just fitter, so their breath bar will always last longer than yours. Sorry – fact of life. This was a natural predator, trained for a life of struggle in an energetic world, not someone pampered in Ironforge for the first few years – or recently crashed down on this world from outer space.

    Hmm here goes … 😛

    1) It’s not balls it’s ectoplasm spheres!

    2) The ghost energy is no match for your magical blade of the owl! Ions be damned that ghost is getting de-electroded.

    3) It’s magic fire :>

    4) We die tonnes of times, the mob simply runs back, resses and then dies again and gives up /logout.

    5) The second half of the robe is invisible, only uber powerful mages can see it :>

    6) They can see how the other battle is faring out… they’d rather not risk death themselves.

    7) Sorry you were out of los, didnt know you’d killed others!

    8 ) They’ll feed the dogs anything 😛

    9) They do, it’s just sometimes you get so carried away hitting them, they get a bit smushed/diced up.

    10) We are in the “inbetwen” not quite game over dead, the spirit healer saw it fit to res us partically, but it’s up to us to find our body. Our Aura carries 1HP 😛

    11) The animals don’t beat on the hunter until the spell is done… it’s just bestiality. If the hunter pleases them….. viola!

    12) FP mounts are specially armoured, they know they shouldn’t mes with them, they’re too hard. 🙂

    13) Some pets are just glory hogs 😛

    14) One word: Ego.

    15) You know how to roll on impact and your soles are lined with special “passive safe fall” magic.

    16) The guy in the DEHTA camp said he is going to make all the ears into a necklace for himself o.O Each to thier own.

    17) He actually has a broken leg but he’s too embaressed to say.

    18) They didnt respawn, they just crept up on them! So it seemed like it…

    19) Because sensible adventures put bloody parts in the plastic lined section of the bag or a carrier bag first.

    20) Its a bag of holding so it has no weight value DnD ftw!

    21) Water is pure and spirittual, it cleanses our body and mind so makes us more receptive to magic.

    22) It’s an illusion of being healthy, really you’re just on a sugar rush.

    23) Yep you did, everyone in wow is a qualified butcher.

    24) Because adventurers are ten to a penny in azeroth. It’s part of every day life.

    25) If your weapon is sheathed there is no cause for alarm however im sure the guards do keep an eye on those lunatics killing rats (although somewhat grateful to them too).

    26) Where there mobs before us who wiped? we didn’t know we’ve just got here 😛

    27) You gain the experience of Mercenary work! It’s a dirty job but someone has to do it. 😛

    28) The innkeepers are the ones who give you the hearthstone in the first place and attune it to thier inn… so i guess they know pretty well that people will be teleporting in and out.

    29) Everyoen knows friendlya dventurers are welcome anywhere! They will either help you with your quest or steal your household goods, either way you don’t mess with them 😛

    30) It does it just can’t tell you about it 😛 Good job pets are skilled at holding thier breath!

  7. Hairygiblets said,

    1) Why do ghosts turn into glowing balls when you kill them?
    Its the remanents of their ghostly energy.

    2) How can you kill a ghost with a weapon/spell? They’re ghosts. They’re already dead.
    You have magical weapons that steal some of its energy each time you hit it.

    3) Why do my shoulders, which are on fire, not go out after I jump into water?
    Its a fire that burns similar to a flare. it contains its own oxygen source so that it can burn under water. it could even burn in space if you went there

    4) Why are mobs dying twice?
    Because the have a flair for the dramatic.

    5) How is this considered a robe if there are two pieces to it? (My Mage has a robe on that has the top and bottom separated. I can see my midriff all the way around, but the piece is called a ‘robe’)
    This is simple. You ripped it while putting it on. Go home take it off and sew it back together.

    6) Why don’t mobs attack you when you attack their friends, especially when they see you do it?
    Cause they see the glint in your eye and realize that your just exacting revenge on the person that put the piece of glass in your eye. Upon seeing that they know its safer just to stay away. But what they don’t know is that because you can’t see clearly you will keep killing till the village is wiped out and there is no possible way the person that did this to you is still alive.

    7) Shouldn’t mobs realize, after you kill a certain amount of their people, that they can’t beat you so they should run away?
    Short Term memory problems.
    8 ) Why are the venders so willing to buy body parts?
    Cause the operate a mortuary and need the parts to make complete bodies of fallen heros.

    9) Why don’t all mobs have eyes/skulls/ears/etc. when the quest calls for a certain amount of them?
    Mutations

    10) Why do you still have 1hp when you are a ghost? You are dead, you should not have an hp.
    It accounts for that one thing that can never be taken from you which is the “fighting spirit”.

    11) Why do Hunter pets so easily accept their masters? The Hunter just stands there basically begging the animal to love them while said animal beats on the Hunter until the ‘spell’ is done. I am forever trying to figure this out.
    I have such an easy time taming pets because all animals naturally like me. It just takes some time for them to realize this fact. The quicker they accept this the quicker the become happy with who they are as an animal.

    12) If you are flying through a location on a flight path with enemy mobs in it that also fly, why don’t they attack you as they would if you were on your own mount?
    Because when you are on a fp you have an invisibility shell maybe?

    13) Why do pets take mobs they are fighting so far away? I know they do their best to keep mobs off of their master, but out of range isn’t all too helpful.
    They take the far away because they don’t want you to see them get killed. or maybe they make deals with the mob to play dead. this would could play into why mobs respawn so fast as well. Since they never actually died they just waited a minute then got back up

    14) How come the bosses just stand still while the raid gathers/gets ready? It takes the tanks getting within a certain range for them to attack. Shouldn’t they attack when the raid isn’t ready to avoid their own demise?
    While we are planning what to do, the boss is planning his strategy as well. Normally he tries to figure out who the leader is and if that fails he just goes after whoever he happens to not like. Now that could be based on things to numerous to list here

    15) Why don’t you ever break any bones when you fall from a height that would shatter any bone upon impact with the ground?
    We are similar to wolverine. They break but heal really quickly

    16) What do the mobs do with the body parts they ask you to get?
    They probably sell them on the black market that they use.

    17) Why are people so lazy? This guy just had me deliver a message to a man across the street from him.
    People are only as lazy as they are allowed to be. You should refuse to give into assisting them being lazy by not accepting any quests where the mob is in the same town, yet alone across the street. But if it is a gaurd he may not be able to leave his post.

    18) How do people who are heavily into RP account for mobs that respawn almost instantly?
    Well, obviously there is a pesky healer hiding somewhere near by rezzing them. Now if i could just find said healer i could finally beat the game.

    19) Why don’t bags get ruined after having bloody body parts in them?
    I’m thinking they are lined with some sort of super advanced plastic that is strong yet very flexible. That way when i empty them out i just hose them out and poof they are clean

    20) Why don’t we get slowed down when our bags are full?
    I like to think of myself being like superman in that area. How else would you explain me running around with 2-3 sets of gear, elixirs, food for myself and my pet, and bandages. What i would like to know is how i keep my elixirs and food from being smashed by the mail that i’m not currently wearing

    21) Why does water replenish our mana?
    Because our bar is blue and blue = water??

    22) Why does a piece of bread heal us completely? When I am hurt, I can’t eat bread and be all better.
    It is imbued with the magical healing properties of ginsing ‘nough said. 😛

    23) How does the meat off from animals get to be steaks and the like? I am pretty sure I didn’t just sit down and carve the thing up.
    Well, warriors for example carve up the steaks while in the process of killing them. Hunter’s have their pet unwittingly carving up the steaks for them. Why else would you feed the pet a steak here and there?
    24) Why don’t people question the fact that you are giving them so much stuff, including body parts?
    They don’t question you because to do so would be akin to commiting suicide. They would lose your business and you and your friends might come back later and snuff them out

    25) Shouldn’t there be more concern with a ton of people walking around a city with weapons in plain view? Like, you’d think the guards and people who live there would at least be nervous.
    Well armed citizenry is the best defense. Therefore i think the guards and locals possibly feel safer.

    26) Why do mobs stay where they are? After being wiped out a few times, wouldn’t they move to avoid it again?
    They have severe long term memory loss. They may think about moving but 5 minutes later they have forgotten why they are needing to move so they stay there. Sort of like the Dodo

    27) How does killing animals make me more powerful? I feel like it is more that the quest giver has a severe hatred of the animal and just lures unsuspecting adventurers into doing the dirty work.
    You are probably right on this one. But it makes you more powerful from practice (perfect practice makes you uber powerful which is why you see melee hunters.)

    28) Why don’t innkeepers questions the sudden appearance of people in their Inns? Like, the lack of use of doors would worry me slightly.
    I always assumed they were blind. Still doesn’t explain the nasty oder that would suddenly appear. When is the last time you saw a shower or somewhere to do laundry? We do all this fighting in our clothes and i imagine they get all bloody and sweaty.

    29) Shouldn’t people be more concerned about you going into their homes?
    Maybe they don’t have anything worth being concerned about.

    30) Why doesn’t my pet have a breath bar when it goes under water with me?
    It’s part fish. You claim to be a hunter yet you didn’t notice the gills behind the ears??
