My Character Killed Herself

    I posted about this back in April but got no response from Zos and didn't have the means to upload and share the video. While walking around in Malabal Tor, I came across two trash adds. hit them once and my character locks up, hovers in the air, takes out a knife and then kills herself. Now you can watch it for yourself and let me know what you think. Was this a Game Master? Notice, the Necromancy Synergy Kill Self in the recap does not say who it came from while everything else shows the add who fired the attack. Never seen anything like this. Was just looking for an enchanting survey.

    Edit for context: I was in a party with my friend. I told him what happened and he said the move that killed me sounded like something a GM would use. That's why I was talking to the ghost lol. Would really like to figure out what happened here. @ZOS_GinaBruno

    Wow! Someone at ZOS must love Dragon's Dogma as much as I do! O.O

    I would actually love a skill that uses that animation...ending is a bit on the...well not ‘permanent’ (this is a game after all) but it’s still a bit final...would be terrible for raids...

    Maybe become a ghost then ‘come back to life’ after a timer, restored?

    My best guess is that somehow when you were attacking them, some part of the game decided that your character was the npc that you displaced and it then triggered what would normally be an NPC only animation/death.

    Finally a difficult overland enemy. Would love to see the occasional threat like that in overland zones.

    That was a really nice death. I wish NPC's would use more abilities like that. Your meager 10k health pool just wasnt enough to face the wrath of the necromancers.

    Dont know why you think this would be a GM? Just looks like an awesome NPC ability, cudos to Zos for actually doing something like this.

    I expected it to be funny based on the comments but I didn’t expect it to be that funny! That is effing hilarious.

    Don’t you mean seppuku? And actually that requires an assistant to cut your head off putting you out of your misery. This would technically be harakiri although that requires a horrible horizontal and vertical slice and not just a stab.

    I have to admit I’m fond of the GM godmode theory—much more fun than a bug.
