    Hmm, going purely on them being in-game I'd have to say:

    SWtOR:

    1. C6-N8 (Alderaan, Republic Camp)

    2. Khem Val (Companion, Sith Inq.)

    3. Reki (Ord Mantell, Smuggler story quest)

    4. Sergeant Jojames (Balmorra, Republic)

    5. Moff Sarek (Alderaan, Sith)

    6. Skadge (Companion, Bounty Hunter)

    7. Jailer Nash (Korriban, Sith Warrior story quest)

     

    RIFT:

    1. Alsbeth

    2. The Faceless Man

     

    WAR:

    1. Arch Lector Herwald & The Executioner (Altdorf, Order)

    2. Abigail (The Blighted Isle, Order side)

    3. Definitely Not Gazbag (Cinderfall, Neutral)

    4. 'Ard ta Feed (Gunbad, Instance Boss)

    5. Dwarf Prisoner (Mount Bloodhorn, Order Side)

     

    Diablo 3:

    1. Scoundrel (Companion) / Scoundrel 2

    2. Cydaea (Boss in Act III)

    3. Zoltun Kulle (Boss in Act II)

     

    There are a numbers of others though if you include novels, especially for WAR and D3.

    Nassir from TSW.

     

  • GorweGorwe Ald'RuhnPosts: 2,473Member Uncommon
    Yeah I didn't want to list Nassir because it seemed...so expected. And me being special lil snowflake used names like Blake(Tuvok ftw!) or Pyramidion(lol-when was the last time you were ordered around by the guy who sees all and communicates via speakers/cameras?). Tho I guess you never actually see him :(. I'd prefer him(how do we know it is a he?) to KG. She is...a bit too bitchy/juvenile for my tastes. Also, not special at all.

    The game was weak, but Foxbat was awesome (Champions Online.)

    Definitely agree with TSW and SWTOR having solid characters.  Would've been a little better if they'd focused on fewer more interesting chars.

    Hayden Montag (Jeffrey Combs)- TSW

    great writing paired with the hypnotic voice/talent...(played seven different characters on Star Trek...not a bad thing, really)

    My favorite NPC would have to be good old flippy darkpaw charging north Qeynos gates every time he spawns shouting threats as he run towards the gate only to be cut down by the guards shortly after.

    I've been wracking my brains trying to think of an NPC in an MMO that has caught my attention. Too many of them are bland.

    WoW, I think, has a couple after pondering for a bit.
    1) Zen'Ziki, the Troll Druid who "helps" cleanse an area. He had me laughing so hard at times turning into his waterform on land in the middle of a fight, using wrong spells at the wrong time at wrong targets, and basically being a big screw-up.

    2) Umi Rumplesnicker, a goblin that has you create a Mechanical Yeti in Winterspring, then run to her three "friends" and scare them with the Mechanical Yeti.

    3) Maximillian of Northshire, a Paladin in Un'Goro Crater that is completely useless but funny. I was cracking up throughout the whole horse ride through the zone :)

    Most MMOs have bland NPCs with very little personality to them to make them memorable.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    Uh Darth fucking Vader in SWG!?! What an awesome event in game to see him walking down a city street surrounded by storm troopers!

    I forget the guys name but there is a dwarf in the sewers of Qeynos in the Everquest 2 game, he sells things and his saying is..."If I ain't got it, YA DOOON"T NEED IT!!!"  Thick scottish accent.  Love that guy.

    I can't really think of any memorable NPC's of an mmorpg that I've played. They are all sort of blah to me. Only memorable npcs I can really think of have been from non-mmos, Handsome Jack of Borderlands 2 and Elizabeth of Bioshock Infinite.

    this guy is my all time favorite.

    I had to consider this for a while, and I'm still, not sure, but Glint from GW, was pretty cool.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
    That way, if they get angry, they'll be a mile away... and barefoot.
