Efreeti in WW2 shouting and using Cazic Touch

    Each time I'm in Western Wastes (CoV) I see these NPCs (an exiled efreeti) shouting player's names, like old school Cazic Thule DT messages. When they shout, they use the Cazic Touch spell, which is a 100k DD.

    04/06/21 01:09:03 PM An exiled efreeti shouts, 'Soandso!'
    04/06/21 01:09:49 PM An exiled efreeti shouts, 'Soandso!'
    04/06/21 01:09:56 PM An exiled efreeti shouts, 'Soandso!'

    I feel like this is not quite right. If NPCs are going to shout, it should be something important - like actually DTing someone or a raid mechanic, but with normal trash doing it it gets very spammy after a while.

    So, feedback not a bug?

    I like it though.

    Definitely seems like a bug, but at least it's good for seeing who the afk botters are.

    Been that way since launch - at least you know they're camped without doing ooc crickets

    They shout out the name of the player (or pet?) that first aggros them at the time of the aggro.

    This is the thing you reply to?


    And there's not even a single like on the post.

    But broken raid cheese since January can't get a sniff of a dev interaction.

    I thought this was just a unique feature of the WW zone? I mean software people have been telling us for years that bugs are just undocumented features right?

    I was shocked the other day gathering at the raid npc and realizing a new name was being shouted this week.

    I always thought someone should name their pet Kahhhhhn

    An exiled efreeti shouts, 'Kahhhhhhn'!

    We had a guy on FV camping the hSta augs for like 3 weeks straight, good to know that GMs only care when someone petitions. ;)

    They only shout when first agroed. If there is a fast pulling group you get a lot in one go and then nothing for a while when the are all dead, way less annoying than the Crusader shouting in EW for no real reason.

    I do my lesson burns at the efreeti. I kinda like the shout so people know you are at camp. I always thought the shout was for flavor. lol.

    A developer responded to a bug thread, then we complain about them not fixing other stuff?


    Yikes. It's like if I came out screaming about Absor not fixing raid lag. Do you think this is going to encourage or discourage the devs from reading/participating on the forum?

    Sorry you don't like the bug, this mechanic was previously unique to classic era raid bosses and gods, but ok, not a bug. :p Although, I'm not sure I think liking a bug makes it valid. Sometimes bugs come up here that were linked somewhere in a Discord asking people to like the thread (see: many TLP issues). There are plenty of bugs on this forum that are valid with 0 likes, doesn't mean they aren't worth fixing.
