Ok so I haven't seen anyone other than myself expressing their disapproval of the added one-liners that have been attributed to the NPC's. Perhaps that is because I am part of a small minority that doesn't like this at all? I personally always hated these one-liners from NPCs in RPG games, and was loving the fact that GW didn't have those, which, in my opinion, makes it sounds so fake and unnatural, especially when you need to click on that NPC a few times within the same timeframe (or worse, when the NPC is actually part of the storyline, and already is acquainted with you!)
I think the best way to know whether or not I am the only grumpy one about this is to make a poll.
So, do you find it annoying that the NPC's have one-liners now? (i.e. What is your business? Are you lost? May the Gods be with you! bla bla bla). If you like it, why? If you hate it, why?
Edit: Just to be clear, I am NOT referring to the one-liners we have been seeing for a while now over the heads of your NPC party members such as heroes and henchies.
I am referring to the AUDIBLE one-liners that have been introduced with GW:EN, when you speak to a merchant, or any NPC in or out of town. See my examples in bold above.
