Little things that annoy you

    Kobolds are probably the most effective statistically pathetic, yet dangerous enemy I've ever seen.

    Yeah, I'd like to play a kobold. I think he would make an interesting character, a thief in particular. They do seem to be survivors in a way.

    He's at least got shortsword n bow animations to use if not actual stats to use.

    It's not a specific thing, really, but those little moments that make ya say "I got killed by a what"? Or, "You mean that sucka paralyzed me"? Special mention goes to those bandit firing squads that like to surround low lvl parties.
    If you've done the classic ol Steve Carell line (you know the one) after gettin whooped, especially on a no-reload run, at least once, you know what I'm talkin bout.

    I recently forcily came to remember another little thing that annoyed me ever since the end of the last millennium:
    • Minsc's tiny brain.

  • JumboWheat01JumboWheat01 Member Posts: 1,028
    It's not Boo's fault that he's so small, thus having a naturally smaller brain. Blame the gods that decided he must be a Miniature Space Hamster.

  • KamigoroshiKamigoroshi Member Posts: 5,086
    Nah, Boo is just the right size...

    for an emergency ration, that is.

    Isn't that a myth though? I have never seen statistical data to support that comedians are more often suffering from depression than other career paths.

    Cutscenes with my Charname. There is especially annoying one in SoD during Coast Way Crossing fight on the bridge. Listen, game, if you let me control my character, bridge would still be there, and history would be very different.

    Being bombarded with party interjections right after I'm done with a dungeon. Right outside the Planar sphere is a particular spot for me...I really don't like it, I much prefer it on my own terms^^

    Oh and missing out on specific dialogue, just because my Npc was positioned too far away. Nalia and Tor'gal for example is easily missable because of stuff like that.

    It gets even weirder when two or more NPC's speak at the same time. Or Aerie starts whining right besides a town person.

    Aerie: "My wings have been sawn off..."
    Commoner: "Top o' the day to you. Fine bit o' weather isn't it?"

    Yeah, we need more sarcastic replies to give to normal or polite comments from commoners AND head priests (when wheelin in the dead)

    For some reason I was reminded me of this short clip with Sam Elliot from "We Were Soldiers"

    I don't like how Aec'Letec doesn't give any experience when killed. You do get a lot of experience for completing the quest, but you don't get more experience for killing more than one Aec'Letec. If you were somehow able to beat six Aec'Letecs at once, you DESERVE to get a ridiculous amount of experience for that.

  • ZaghoulZaghoul Member, Moderator Posts: 3,956
    Huh,I thought it immediately gave about 15-16k for killing him, regardless of the quest. Have not done it in a couple months so will need to check.

  • OlvynChuruOlvynChuru Member Posts: 2,302
    If you've killed the six sacrificial cultists, you get 16000 experience after you kill Aec'Letec. However, if you leave the cultists alive and you kill Aec'Letec, you don't get any experience until after you kill the six new Aec'Letecs.

    The really sad thing is that the six cultists DO give experience. So you actually get MORE experience for killing six cultists and one Aec'Letec than you do for killing seven Aec'Letecs.

    @Zaghoul: I wouldn't really recommend Norton to begin with. The program does very little except for plaster its name on your applications and talk about how it's protecting you from all these threats. I've heard better things about security systems like Kaspersky, McAfee, and Malwarebytes. I'd recommend those programs over Norton, which seems to survive based on name recognition.

    A lot of antivirus programs don't actually make your computer any safer. The protection is cosmetic, and in some cases, they'll actually damage your computer and install viruses just to convince you that you need it to protect you.

    Windows actually has a pretty strong security system without any additional programs, and Apple computers are already incompatible with most viruses due to being the minority computer system.

  • ZaghoulZaghoul Member, Moderator Posts: 3,956
    Yeah, Norton has gotten to be a pain. I had Kaspersky before and can't remember now why I switched. Bout ready to go back though after that fiasco.

  • ThacoBellThacoBell Member Posts: 9,573
    I definitely WOULDN'T recommend Mcafee. Its slow, and doesn't actually protect your computer very well. Its also harder to remove than some viruses. I'd personally go with either Avast or ESET.

  • semiticgodsemiticgod Member, Moderator Posts: 13,663
    I've heard good things about Avast, too. But yeah, I found McAfee to be slow, though I'd heard good things about it.

    ...Now that I think about it, my computer was hideously slow for a long time, up until the very day that I uninstalled McAfee.

  • RaduzielRaduziel Member Posts: 4,614
    I use Avast and have no complaints. It's light and effective. Tons of porn academics sites and not a single virus.

  • ThacoBellThacoBell Member Posts: 9,573
    Of note, ESET is FANTASTIC but probably one of the most expensive options out there. I've adopted Avast relatively recently but its got great value to it in addition to being effective. Its free version offers more than some paid programs.
