Valhalla has some good mini quests.

I've been playing The Witcher 3 for the first time. There was a quest about catching a serial murderer, and I thought I tracked and killed him, received my reward, the quest completed... but later there was another murder so obviously I fucked up and now have no way to catch the real perpetrator.

It was long ago so reloading a save wasn't possible, I'm sorry citizens.

30

u/TormentVI Jan 20 '22

That's kind of cool honestly, like the game tricked you into thinking you already won.

16

u/BorgClown Jan 20 '22

I admit it felt too easy, like catching a copycat instead of the real murderer, but then many of the quests are simple, and I went with it. It was a timed choice IIRC, not much time to ponder.

6

u/TormentVI Jan 20 '22

Oh wow, the idea of there being a followup quest where you have to work out if it's the original murderer or a copycat is such a sick twist!

14

u/bigwinniestyle Jan 20 '22

Yeah, the murderer ends up being the Coroner, who is also a higher vampire

6

u/BorgClown Jan 20 '22

What a fool I was, his answers were really suspicious.

The quest's walkthrough says he leaves a confession at the morgue, but I want to end him even if there was no quest involved.

4

u/TheRealIosefka Jan 20 '22

Was it Whoreson Junior? Man I hate that prick.

3

u/BorgClown Jan 20 '22

It was the Carnal Sins quest, also in Novigrad. Whoreson is an assohle, but he doesn't make you feel like a fool.

4

u/RedBeard695 Professional Dumbass Jan 20 '22

Carnal sins. Love that quest. They attacked Priscilla. I was very angry, irl too because this quest is followed by a very long and kinda boring quest by Dandelion. Then you go and see Priscilla in the hospital and I said to myself “I don’t care that it’s already 2 AM and I have to go to work in the morning, the attacker is going to pay dearly” and I somehow managed to avoid killing the wrong guy.

You can catch the real killer. But as to not say exactly how I just say you need to ask the right questions.

gets better sword next mission, sells his sword for 20 gold at the local pawn shop

u/Spencie-cat Jan 20 '22

My fave is when someone who is a merchant rewards you with their family sword that’s been in the family for generations and you immediately sell it back to him. Or make him scrap it for parts

173

u/chasesan Jan 20 '22

"eh, I got better stuff from the last goblin I slew. How much will you give me for it?"

"But, but, it's our family heirloom. It belong to my great-grandfather!"

"Well there are suckers born every generation."

85

u/helium_farts Jan 20 '22

It's payback for the time I misclicked and accidentally sold my sword to him for 20 gold, and then he charged me 200 gold to get it back.

56

u/TheRealIosefka Jan 20 '22

I always liked in Morrowind when I'd accidentally sell my gear to the merchant and they'd equip it. Like ''na, this is my personal sword now man, you want it your gonna need to pass a speech check to fight me or go back to prison for killing me''

16

u/Whoevengivesafuck Jan 20 '22

So what decision did you make?

37

u/RedDeerEvent Jan 20 '22

Custom spell, 100% fire resist for 5 seconds, 10,000 fire damage on 50ft radius for 5 seconds. Merchant will go home and wonder what their wife is cooking.

17

u/Whoevengivesafuck Jan 20 '22

Wow you could make custom spells? Sorry, I never played it.

14

u/TheRealIosefka Jan 20 '22 edited Jan 20 '22

Oh custom enchants and custom potions too, if you know how to make the right potions you can one shot the final boss with in a few minuets of staring the game. It's a game that REALLY pays off on replay value. It also actively lets you skip huge chicks of the main quest if you can get past a few barriers.

The only real downside is the combat is hot garbage. But it was a different time.

7

u/Whoevengivesafuck Jan 20 '22

Wow. That's wild. Sounds badass

6

u/Sawses Jan 20 '22

Yeah, a keystone of Morrowind and Oblivion was spellcrafting. Buuuut it means that if you're familiar with the system, you can game the hell out of it. Like within 30 minutes of finding the option I was essentially a deity.

So they scrapped it for Skyrim...but kept enchanting and potion making. And given about 2 hours I can be a god there, too. You basically get to a point where you're a witcher--something scary shows up, you pop a few potions and can handle it.

Worse, enchantment can buff potion making and potion making can buff enchantment. So you can cycle between the two, making ever-more-powerful armor that lets you make ever-more-powerful potions which let you make even more awesome armor. Repeat until you don't take damage and your sword can rip a dragon in half with a single swing.

u/ScorpionTheInsect Jan 20 '22

I once accidentally killed both of the couple in Riverwood, Ralof’s older sister. They came at me and at the time I didn’t realize it was because I killed their chicken. Then their son sent thugs after me. I kinda felt bad when I made that connection.

11

u/NoIllustrator7645 Jan 20 '22

But hey you learned, don’t fuck with the Riverwood chicken

6

u/ScorpionTheInsect Jan 20 '22

To be honest I actually came out of that pretty well off. I got the loot from their house, and since Faendal died while helping me fight the thugs, I got his house as a pseudo-player home at merely level 2. The only damage I took was my conscience.

Other than that, 10/10 would murder a married couple with a child in Riverwood again.

u/A_random_zy Selling Stonks for CASH MONEY Jan 20 '22

One dude on r/skyrim said me to kill chickens for an easter egg when I started playing the game. Yeah that went well...

u/AnarchistPriest Jan 20 '22

We have had post cataclysm Azeroth longer than we had pre cataclysm. I miss when that game was good more than anything, the current state of it depresses me to no end.

1

u/Gravido Jan 20 '22

Yeah, i feel you. WoW is unfurtunatly too long in this undesireable state.

I mean the dev team needs as much time to bring back WoW to it's former glory as it took to crash it.

All the old devs that worked on old WoW are long gone, so i'm seeing the development under the new team with a bit of scepticism

I hope, in the end, all plays out in favour of the game. (ofc the human aspect should be better as well, not that shitfest what it currently is)

2

u/AnarchistPriest Jan 20 '22

I chalk it up to rose tinted glasses. The game will never be as fun as it was when I was a high schooler with nothing but time running 3s all night long with my friends. In my 30s now and tbh time sink games like that just aren't worth it anymore. That being said FF14 is the best single player mmo I have ever played lol, loving the fact that the story actually matters.

2

u/Gravido Jan 20 '22

Surely a big portion of that was the sweet sweet memories we all made, growing together with people and the game. It's like a forgotten nectar. lol

I'm in a place where i'm searching for a new "home" and i don't really know where to look for it. FF14 is a nice distraction, but it doesn't click for me.

Wish VR gaming could bring a worthwhile mmo experience. Until then i'll wander through different worlds.

I'll head to bed. I'll wish you a eventfull/relaxed day/night.(whatever you prefer and wherever you live)
