When Dying Doesn't Stop the Elite from Chasing You

Not even death will save you from this satyr. Also you can pull him to alive players.

 

It seems Diablo has finally made it into WoW and made good on his threat, in the form of a satyr in Val'sharah who really didn't want to let go of his prey, as redditor  Almlov found out.

Apparently you can even make him chase you to other players, where he will promptly attack them! Hopefully this will prove to Blizzard that we need ghostmounts. Or at least let Demon Hunters use their mobility skills in ghost form, who cares about the other classes!

And here's that classic Diablo line once again:

I thought I saw an epic ring that increases your movement speed when dead, but I couldn't find it when googling for this.

We seriously need ghost mounts.  I have died a few times and had to walk a very long way back.  It would be amazing as a demonhunter if we could use all of our mobility skills.

I'm totally in favour of glyphs that allow us to use all mobility abilities when dead. Some classes have it, some don't. BRING THEM ALL.

Instead of Ghost Mounts, why not getting rid of the concept of running back to your body? Make us appear next to out bodies when releasing, much like in Diablo 3. Blizzard need to learn that running back to your body is not fun at all.

I gonna say that i has at least a little point - a long run can be boring, but it`s not so frustrating (unless you can`t reach your corpse by usual meanings (i`m looking at you, Suramar)), so with chilly music it can hush some rage from getting owned by tanks a little bit.

Big problem here with exploiting, skipping things etc.

You can fly up high, glide, whatever, drop down and die somewhere. Then simply ress next to your body. Also, if we appear next to our corpses like in D3, people can skip trash in dungeons etc.

There is also the fact that, compared to the MMO's it competed with in the early days...WoW's death penalty is barely a slap on the wrist. You lose a little currency (durability) and a little time. That's it. Your armor and weapons aren't unusable permanently broken when they hit 0%, you don't lose any experience, your items are safe in their bags.

I remember freaking out because someone had ganked me in UO and I thought I'd lose all my stuff. Thankfully, everything important was "insured" at an in-game bank or I would indeed have lost everything on my person at the time of death. Also thankfully, these days MMO's tend to have death penalties that are less likely to make keyboards fly out windows.

I remember my first time dying in the Wilderness of Runescape. I was lured out and killed, was just so gutted :(

Give nightelf wisps their ability to fly and you won't hear me complaining of dying ever again :)

Another reason to roll NElf? It would no longer be Alliance vs. Horde, just BElfs vs. NElfs

In Everquest you could go back a level if you lost enough experience, and in that game you had to run back to your corpse alive with zero gear.

And you know what? The players of Everquest probably thought it was normal at the time

That's because it was "normal" at the time.  Though the occasional level rollback sucked hard.

Back on topic:

My only question at this point is this a bug or working as intended?  Because that's kind of messed up.

      Blizzard (Source)
      It’s time for Tricky Treats, costumes, and—of course—the return of the Headless Horseman during this year’s Hallow’s End!
      Hallow’s End celebrates the break of the Forsaken from the Scourge.
      Fun and mischief reign as the Innkeepers of Azeroth give treats, and tricks, to whomever asks.
      The spookiest time of year has arrived once more, and the Headless Horseman rides forth to strike terror into the hearts and minds of Azeroth’s citizens.
      When: October 18–November 1

      Prepare yourselves, the bells have tolled! Shelter your weak, your young and your old! Each of you shall pay the final sum. Cry for mercy, the reckoning has come!
      THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN It would be a lovely time of year to take a stroll through the Scarlet Monastery’s Graveyard if the Headless Horseman hadn’t decided to make it his new lair. If you're lucky and succeed in routing this menace from within, you may ride off with his steed.
      Throughout Hallow’s End, characters level 23-120 will be able to queue up for this ghoulish encounter in the Dungeon Finder.
      This year you’ll be able to exchange your Tricky Treats for a newly added toy:

      There's a fair amount of changes and buffs for Marksmanship that have arrived on the PTR. The first part of the changes are to enhance Marksmanship's tools for keeping a target at range, so we're seeing Bursting Shot and Concussive Shot buffs.

      There's also a change to Rapid Fire to bring it in line with most other channeled spells in regards to line of sight, so it will now continue to do damage even after a target has broken LOS, and you can also Disengage during the channeling of it. The other big changes are to Trueshot, reducing its cooldown and making it also reduce Aimed Shot and Rapid Fire cooldowns during its duration, as well as to Careful Aim, making it more consistent by having it always trigger.
      Marksmanship (source)
      The Public Test Realms (PTR) are seeing several changes for Marksmanship Hunters. Here’s some context on those changes.
      One goal of ours for Marksmanship is proficiency in keeping targets at range in PvE and PvP situations. Marksmanship plays best when you have distance from your target, so we’re emphasizing some of the tools that help you either move a target away from you, or keep your distance.
      - Bursting Shot has had its knockback range increased, can no longer be dodged, and snares targets for 6 seconds now.

      - Steady Shot will now increase the duration of Concussive Shot on the target by 3 seconds. This will work on a Concussive Shot from any friendly Hunter, not just your own Concussive Shot.

      Rapid Fire has had some usability problems in PvP. Most other channeled spells will continue to deal damage when your target runs behind a pillar and breaks line of sight, but Rapid Fire requires constant line of sight. We’re changing that, and now it will behave like almost every other channeled spell that players cast, and will continue to damage a target, even if the target is no longer in line of sight. We also think it’s cool to be able to use Disengage while channeling Rapid Fire, so now you can.


      Aimed Shot is a driving force behind a significant amount of the damage a Marksmanship Hunter deals. There are a lot of different stacking bonuses you can get from various Talents and Azerite Armor that can swing the damage of Aimed Shot by a huge amount. Some of these bonuses are entirely uncontrolled, which made Aimed Shot an unreliable source of damage. We want Aimed Shot to feel like an impactful and more reliable source of damage, so:
      - Careful Aim is now a guaranteed bonus to Aimed Shot damage against targets above 80% health or below 20% health.
       
      Trueshot has changed a lot over the years, but it’s currently not a very exciting button, and it could feel much more impactful when you use it. We like that it makes your Aimed Shot cast time reduced, so we’re keeping that, and it now additionally causes your Rapid Fire and Aimed Shot abilities to recharge significantly faster while Trueshot is active. The new version of Trueshot is a significant pacing change for its duration, allowing you to cast multiple Aimed Shots and Rapid Fires during its duration. We’re also lowering its cooldown from 3 minutes to 2 minutes.
