  • Shopkeeper Dialogue Priority

    As of right now, it appears that the majority of heroes' lines for combining items is being simply overridden by the newly hooked up Shopkeeper responses. In other words, should you complete an item by buying something from the shop manually through your hero, you'd hear his response, and not really the hero's. It still works the way it should when it is all done through couriers, but...

    I have a strong belief that this is not how it's supposed to be. Have those lines play after your hero announces his stuff. Just imagine, for example.

    Invoker: "Ancient scepter!" Woode: "Your foes will fear you now."
    Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

      ...He said that my foes will fear me now because i picked some iron branches. Is weird, yeah. I agree with this.
      Too lazy to write something with any sense. That's why i spam this here: My DevianArt account, my YouTube Channel, and my Steam Account.

        Iron branch is the best item in the game though...

          Would dearly love an option to disable his voice altogether. Easily the most unnecessary cosmetic addition so far, especially since it overrides almost every other sound at the time and the lines arent particularly exciting either.

              I think he also says something like 'excellent choice' when I buy stupid items for a hero.

              He should say the excellent choice line when I get a whitelisted item for a particular hero.

              Vlads on Lycan, Armlet on lifestealer, etc.

              I buy MoM on QoP and he says excellent choice. WTF.

                Yeah, he should use the "I'll just wrap it up" like instead, or a new one. "Should I gift wrap this for [hero X]?" :-p

                    No, his voice was needed. Sure there is this bug, but they will fix it, add some more lines or maybe hero/item specific ones (even if not he still will be great) and its perfect. A few animations wouldn't hurt either (well "come come" /"look at my wares" hand gasture) , but I really like his voice. Kinda nails the "keeper" thing perfectly.
                    Hence came forth a cloudy mist to devour the very essence of the futures fortune in the city of the mind, yet a single thought like a golden lance piersed the all devouring veil and it's existance came to an end. As the mist dispersed into nothingness the writer shook his head as he took his quill - now that the mind was clear it was time to write again...

                      Agree with OP

                      +1

                      In additon, would love to have more voice acting for this shopkeeper, he is such an awesome dude! His voice is of pure awesomeness Also as Ner[D] mentioned, it would not hurt to have a few animations.

                        Whenever I hear that guy's voice, I keep thinking about jews and that "greedy jew" stereotype.

                            He reminds me more of an Asterix Character tbh.
