We’ve seen them run as soon as you engage them, we’ve seen them drop two Uniques at the same time, but this, this is something new. I suppose it was only a matter of time before the treasure carrying ones took their sweet sweet revenge. A high level Hardcore player had a very rude awakening recently after dropping their guard around the little ones. The goblin didn’t have any assistance, was the only thing in the room, and yet it still got the kill.
Killthuzad was running a tier 37 Nightmare Dungeon and really showcases just how easy it is to lose a character on Hardcore.
Death Pulse does say that the pulse a monster leaves after death is “deadly”, but this is on a whole new level! The goblin was level 91, however, so perhaps this isn’t that surprising, but it sure was unexpected. Killthuzad’s reaction is very much on point as that is definitely the weirdest way I’ve seen of someone losing their character.
If you want to see the rest of the death reaction you can head over here.
