The world is full of pain and sorrow.
Life is fleeting and true moments of joy are few and far between.
Happiness is laced with shards of pain.
Yeah, I don't like the pop'n'run players, either.
My necro loads all her marks onto a mysterious present, waits a few seconds for a couple of them to recharge, and then pops the present. If it contains skritts, they usually die immediately! Some of the other toys scatter without setting off the marks, but I drag them back over the marks while laying down a few more. They soon die, but sometimes the dolls are a bit challenging. It's worth fighting the toys for the extra drops; I got a Lvl 80 gold ring from a Lvl 3 foe in one of the mysterious presents in Queensdale tonight! I really hate it when the pop results in no present, especially if there are no drops from toys. Grrr.
But, like a poster on another thread, I'm wondering why I'm bothering, because most of the items the that can now be bought with the ugly clothes can be bought for a few silvers from the trading post. Perhaps it's just the thrill of the pop!
I have everything I really want at this point (at least 1 of each weapon skin with 2 slingshots, 2 swords, and 3 daggers), but I still can't resist popping the presents when I see them. If nothing else, they're easy silver in the trading post... though if I have help, I'm still shooting some extras to other people (basically, if I get more than 1 gift, I'll shoot 'em at people). I'm really liking the shocked look on their avatars when they get 'em... they usually don't know what to do and just stand there for a moment after turning to look at me, though a few actually bow or wave.
.....Never let modern day travesties harm the memory of greatness.
