Shopkeepers

Postby Thilindel » Thu May 29, 2008 5:53 am

Would like to kill them mightily when they aren't selling anything unique or quest related. Mobs like Luna, Szxvu, and others who have EQ, regardless of stats. I don't see why they're !kill.

If life were to be a sanctuary as a merchant, you wouldn't read daily about shopkeepers being attacked and murdered. Hell, it should run more rampant than ever in these times before x-rays even.

Luna's earring was always rumored to be haste, it was a shame when we finally got one an it wasn't:( There's a dwarven hammer on a shopkeeper I've always wanted and it doesn't load anywhere else in the game, though. Frustrating of course!

While I understand the sentiment, couldn't you just talk out your issues?

The problem with killing shopkeepers is that once their loot is taken, they don't respawn with anything for sale. Mechanically, this does not seem like a difficult thing to "fix", however, it is fully handled by not allowing to happen in the first place..... just for clarification. :)

It's simple enough to fix. The infamous paladin is killed in WD, yet on death, he's not carrying that sword.

Make shopkeepers who aren't pivotal, upon death, just drop their worn. Other than antagonize, or just have a killable mob wear the items.
