View Full Version : Do NPC's fight each other?

02-08-2005, 12:27 AM
<DIV>Somthing I always liked about EQ1 was the factions different NPC's had.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Such as in Misty Thicket in EQ1 there was a sort of war going on between Orcs, Goblins, and Bixies. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Many time's youd see goblins running to the orc camps and either fighting or helping some orcs, and likewise both the orcs and bixies would fight each other. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I never laughed so hard in an MMO when I saw a bixie and a goblin gang up on an orc and kill it. Likewise when I saw orcs and bixies fight in East Commonlands.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>My question is, has anyone seen any NPC's fight each other in EQ2 yet? I havent seen any NPC's just fighting each other (which added to realism if you ask me) yet and think it'd be fun to watch sometimes.</DIV>

<DIV>The only place I've been seeing NPC attack each other is Everfrost.</DIV>

<DIV>I've seen hunters kill animals in Commonlands.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Steelhoof invaders and pillagers are killed all the time in Thundering Steppes by the guards of Thundermist Village.</DIV>

I've seen a pack of wolves attack a dear in Ant once, but that's it for me.

<DIV>I've seen a group of deer attack and beat down a carrion hound in Commonlands.  Also, I've seen a guard in Longshadow Alley threaten a female NPC with his weapon.  I always thought that was reserved for people who betrayed <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>I see deer in WC slaughter carrion hounds all the time, but nothing like Doom where you'd fire one shot into a crowded room and they'd go crazy on themselves until only a handfull were left.</DIV>

<DIV>I saw a single dog attack a pack of deer in Commonlands just last night.  Had never seen that before.</DIV>

I havent seen it yet, but I hope they include it (judging by some of the posts they may have in a reent patch??). Was one of those things I loved about EQ1

this has been in since launch. it is not real common but it happens. i've seen the deer and lionesses fighting since 2 weeks after launch when i made it to the commonlands.

<DIV>They definitely do. It's all over.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Probably the easiest to see is the one in the gnoll tunels of Antonica, where the gnolls will fight the Windstalker Rumbler. It's always in the same spot and unless you are careful in moving the rumbler, it almost always happens ^^.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I used to draw the rumbler to the northern exit, then just watch it muder every gnoll it came across on it's way back down <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> [Yes, I'm easily amused]</DIV>

<DIV>I've seen a bird attack a beetle...</DIV>

The guards at zek docks will attack each other. I'm assuming the guards inside are on freeport faction and the mariner soliders outside are on qeynos faction. If you are from freeport and you run towards the docks with mobs after you the guards come out to your assistance if you get close enough to the wall. When they kill the mobs they will then attack the mariner soldiers. The freeport guards always win <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />Never seen mobs attack each other though.

<DIV>It's been mentioned, but I love how a very large group of higher then average centaurs will stampede the Thundermist Village in Thundering Steppes.  Sometimes they really give the guards a run for their money, but have yet to see them provail.</DIV>

<DIV>in Antonica, at night, a packs of wolfves patrol area east of twin towers and kill every dear they come near.</DIV>

i saw yesterday some deers fight with a lion. Next thing i remember is the death of the lion. They must taught me something wrong in school....

<DIV>really dont mess with deer, if you are careful in Enchanted lands you can find in deer dens griffin and bear meat (only griffin i know specifically is bloodtalon so they are > griffons seemingly (could be a typo)) and those briarpaws in enchanted lands are mean yet deer are butchering them and storing them in thier dens.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I want a spell, summon deer army <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>

<DIV>There are a couple different places in everfrost where different mobs attack each other.  Right off the boat you can watch the barbarians fight the wolves that wander in that canyon.  Also, on the way to permafrost you can see the big ape-like hunters and the snow leapords go toe to toe.  Interesting to watch :smileywink:</DIV>

<DIV>I've seen a pack of three shin ra orcs attack Garreg Stonecrusher in the wailing caves, but only for about a minute or so. Gotta love entrancing sonnets, lol.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>"I paid you with me jokes and my fine company''</DIV>

<DIV>Bambi would eat you and everyone you care about if you let it</DIV>

<DIV>In TS  guards constantly fight centuars</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

02-17-2005, 07:15 AM
<DIV>Im not talking about guards vs. mobs, that's a given</DIV>

They either pick off the old, weak, or sick ones...or, if they can't do that, spook the herd and run some around until they are exhaused, then kill those. A few healthy prey animals working together can fight off most predators. The key is predators generally don't work in large groups, and herds do. Nature doesn't zerg...<p>Message Edited by Daeanor on <span class=date_text>02-20-2005</span> <span class=time_text>04:56 AM</span>

I am not saying people training mobs to the guards. In TS there are no guards who will save your butt. In EF you see mobs fight each other , If you kill all the deer in this one are the seraph of stags spawns and kills all the numbfoot there.

i went to everfrost this weekend for first time (the mobs onthe boat look awesome btw piccys in my eq2player gallery) and saw a mob (huuptic model) run after a deer and kill it. Made for good atmousphere as the evil mobs butchering wildlife was cool.
