    So, I was fishing in Upper Fortus, right across the river from a couple of kobolds. They were taunting me about how they were coming to kill me, but they couldn't do anything. Not only could they not path, but I was out of range from the archer.

    All of these taunts were on a loop, and a lot of them seemed inappropriate and made the kobolds sound pathetic and helpless more than anything else.

    YRKSRKK! You die now! (I'm still alive, dumb kobold, and catching lots of good fish)

    So, I was thinking that maybe the activity the aggro'd player was doing could target unique taunts. For instance,

    SRKK! You will die in these waters!
    [​IMG]
    SRKK! This fish will be your last!
    [​IMG]
    SRKK! You'll be on my hook soon!

    And then, for instance, there could be a different taunt for players mining, like,
    SRKK! You'll be buried in the earth!
    SRKK! Your corpse will not be found!
    SRKK! Your riches will not follow you to your grave!

    Would be fun, but hopefully WAY down on their list of stuff to do in terms of dev time spent.

    I love it when a mob proclaims that my death is imminent or how much of a mistake it was for me to come there and then I one-shot him.

    Yea, I get a chuckle when they say "I see your end" as they die...
