I don’t know about you, but for the last 2-3 months I have been getting really strange deaths. There have been a couple of deaths that I lay at Tobril’s feet, but those are okay as I get him from time to time.
So lets roll things back a life, to my pally life. We are level 2 or 3 and we are zerging Information is Key, I don’t have any idea which run we are on but I assume it was one of the elite runs. Tobril is killing the mobs; I jump up on the crate break a box or two, pull the lever and then jump down. The screen freaks out for a second and I take 500points of damage from falling….. WTF?
Fast forward to the other day doing the bloody crypt and I fall through the floor and in to the red nothing that is the out side of the quest. Touched on that in another post but as it more or less auto “released” me from the quest so the team took reentry penalty, I count it as a death.
On Tuesday, Tobril and I were running the Delera’s part 2 and I was trailing behind cleaning up the optionals and I when to hit the chest behind the acid traps. I could see all the little acid sprayer heads and Tobril had been “disarming them” aka setting them off while he loots the chest so I didn’t think anything of it as I ran over to loot my chest. Hit the loot all button and I get that goes in the bag lag, as I want to say I had 10millon gems in that chest, when the trap goes off. I try to move but I couldn’t. Looking at the combat log I took 6 hits most I saved until the end where I rolled a 1. I was at -170 hps with a 30 acid shrine. Post death I was still trying to get everything in the bag, tasty lag deaths. After that Tobril took a moment to get the other trap for sure for me.
Then on Wednesday, T and I were doing Delera’s 3 just running up a stair case, right before the shrine and boom I took 1000 points of falling damage out of the blue. I still don’t know how it happened. As I was running up a staircase, not jumping or falling off anything, when it happened. It was a total shock.
I couldn’t imagine trying to play as a permadeather right now. Any step could just kill you out of the blue. It would be like win the devils attacked the market place a few years back. Just not play any prema alts…..
Oh well I am still having fun so works for me. You have any strange out of the blue deaths to report from the last few months?
