I’ve been spending a little too much time over at www.memebase.com.
You’ll see why later in the post.
I’m digging the stealth – pickpocket deal on my rogue.
Just wandering about, taking a bit of this and a bit of that, never mind me, doo-de-do-de-do.
(Yes I sing little do-de-do songs while rummaging about in pockets.)
Having played skinners before, I was prepared on my rogue for my biggest skinning pitfall – forgetting to skin the damn corpse.
I’ve become practically neurotic about it.
Dammit, I know I can skin you!
Kill something else, rinse and repeat.
Of course I am also annoyed as all hell when I can’t skin something because the game won’t let me.
I’m not really certain what I could make from their thin skin, but humanoids have skin, dammit!
I’ve seen floor rugs made from centaur hides and yet I can’t skin them.
Naga, covered in scales, not unlike a dozen other perfectly skinnable mobs in the game, but noooooooooo we can’t skin them.
Satyrs. They’re freaking half goat and I can’t skin them. Collect their horns for quests, no problem, but skinning them is right out.
Furbolgs. Vertical bears in bikinis. Can’t skin.
The other reason I get pissed off when I can’t skin something is because people don’t freaking loot their corpses.
I know it takes up some bag space.
But you know what?
Selling those grays to a vendor adds up. And if you run out of space, you can always drop the shit.
It’s not like we have encumbrance rules that will force you to a crawl because you picked up that last piece of soft fur or broken claw.
(I’ve played games like that and scrolls weighed a lot. Like, a stack of 10 scrolls weighed almost as much as a piece of armor. Apparently they scribed everything on lead bricks.)
No real purpose to today’s post except for me to bitch and perpetuate silly memes.
