I nominate Summoning for the Worst of Everquest Award. Lets not get in to why it is needed. We all know or should know. Something to do with limitations of AI, the game engine and need for challenge. It is here to stay and that isn't the point. For all that it is the worst, the most jarring, immersion breaking, unreasonable feature to be found in Everquest. Or is it? Can you think of anything to knock Summoning from its perch atop the EQ hill of stupid? I can think of some also rans. Feign Death which fools gods again and again is certainly out there. Even if the hungry bear were fooled it wants a meal anyway, dead is good. Have to give it credit for dumb but it isn't all that hard to get used to it and forgive. OK, the monks and necrophiliacs can drop aggro. Is it all that much worse than fade? Close but no cigar. Aggro Control rates. Why is it the mobs don't go hit the obvious easy targets first? How could they be that dumb? See FD above? Of course we know it is computer AI limitations. A proper job of making the mobs choose actions well would also require the geometry and player formations to block them from their desired path. Mobs have a hard enough time moving at all. Anyone know of a game in this genre that doesn't depend on aggro control? Kind of have to forgive it and move on. Healing! Yes, healing in Everquest really is out there. Player harmonic frequency is about one cycle per 4 seconds going from full health to almost dead to full health again. It comes with an overtone for individual hits and heals and an undertone of death and resurrection. Fruit flies have nothing on Everquest characters. Not even Looney Toons characters put their beaks back on so fast or so often. They are merely also rans. Summoning reigns suppreme, king of the immersion killing stupid. A rat_model_06 says you will not evade me Player and there you are right where it wants to hit you. Amazing how much stupid Everquest can endure and still be fun. We deal with it controlling pulls, controlling which mobs we damage when so we can play the rest of the game despite this bucket of computer stupid dumped on our heads. The game endures even this. Or is there something worse? Do tell.
