Bad Enemy AI and easy mobs in general?

Recommended Posts

Guys, I am level 15 and have to kill 50 steel imps (I guess that's what their name is). I know I am at the beginning of the game, but the enemies barely react at all and they are too easy to kill

 

Is this going to change? Will I find more smart and hard enemies at some point?

They don't really get "smarter" but they do get faster and harder in higher levels. You'll need to keep upgrading your gear to keep up too.

At least that was my PC experience.

I mean to be honest, was it really any different in World of Warcraft and other MMORPGs? I remember kiting being the way to take down enemies and EverQuest back in the day, LOL not exactly smart on their part. 😝

I don't play mmos, my man! The only that I really played was ESO and I liked how enemies behave in general.

Ahh!

To be fair I'm referencing old ones. 😛 

Though to be fair...MMOs are not known for great enemy AI, outside of those that have detailed and well designed raids.  But even then if we are honest its often the environmental hazards and puzzles that provide the challenge, not the bullet sponge big boss.

And no, there are not raids or instanced dungeons in BDX.

Thanks, buddy

 

I had fun and I will continue having fun regardless of my criticism 😁

MMO AI's in general are rarely are ever too difficult tbh. Not a PC player but so far from what I seen they don't really get TOO much more challenging. They definitely become stronger and faster as you level but to be fair so will you.

They have slow directional swings. Only thing that hurts are the wizard mobs if you leave them alive long enough. Slow cast time on them too.

I had a life skill armor from 49 to 52 before I figured it out. Best part of being a caster I guess.

It will get better once they release more content. They want you to get hooked early so you invest time and money into this.

Take advantage of their incompetence. Round them up in a nice big group and kill them all at once. This might sound basic to some but even as a PC veteran it took me the first 15-20 levels before I remembered this method.

Later levels you want to kill mobs as fast as you can for xp, here is a video from the pc version i streamed tonight go to around 10 minutes into it to see.

Also just ignore my stream msg's those are other problems i am dealing with atm...

The problem is you are doing a quest for mobs that are not green to you anymore and are grey so they won't attempt to agro you.  This is the way most NPC will react.  An exception to the rule would be mobs @ Serendia Shrine which are lvl 50 and grey to lvl 55-64 characters, no matter what they will still agro higher level players.
