I wonder , it's not that I'm against this or not ... I just want to know how I died !

A glather was carrying a club then when I changed my belt to brawler he always swapped it to an axe , and so on .. it continued like for 5-6 rounds and there was also a shaman to deal with and I died .

Now , was this a job of a DM or we have some intelligent monsters to add more fun to the game ?

Even if it was a DM , I am not mad because I died (I am not a person to whine) , I just want to learn ..

In any case , the Glathers in Syvandale has lost their only customer for now icon_wink.gif I can't afford to die any longer ..

I've encountered it in the crypts. Blasted intelligent skeletons. icon_smile.gif I think it's a lot of fun though. But yeah the monsters do appear to have become more intelligent.

Let me express my deepest sympathies for you. It breaks my heart knowing that you have given up powergaming in the sewers. icon_cry.gif

Powergaming ? I was a guinea pig for the glathers as few other people can kill them for the moment (with parties) . I wasn't gaining good experience even , I was just there to see if any good items are being dropped .

Back to the crypts and topaz it seems .. heh ..

Griff you kill me! LOL

At any rate ... monsters sometimes WILL switch weapons on their own if they have an alternative weapon in their invenstory. They don't always have an alternate, however, it's a random thing. If they do spawn with some random weapon (which would be droppable loot) and if they have it on hand and their normal attack isn't working then they will sometimes switch to what they have. Same goes for potions and such ... if they spawn with some potions as loot, they will probably use the potions in a fight.

Sometimes it is a DM, however ... but it doesn't have to be.

As Conrad pointed out the AI of many monsters alows them to swap weapons or use items. The most fun I had was a Troll Bezerker using a Harp of Hauning on me, before I had the dreaded helm of mind spells immunity. I like the fact they can use the items, it adds and unexpected twist and more fun. Only thing kind of silly is to see a skeleton drinking a poition. icon_rolleyes.gif

As Bri works with Dyso, I often find a fimular creature doing things unexpected, like the Skeletons getting more criticals. I'm all for it and keep us adventures on our toes. icon_twisted.gif
