The Daily Grind: Which MMO NPC do you hate with an undying passion?

The right answer is Sara Oakheart.


Sara Oakheart. Let me tell you about Sara Oakheart. If you haven’t ever played Lord of the Rings Online, you wouldn’t have a clue, but believe me, you’d end up hating her too if you encountered her.

Sara pops up in a number of quests along the first volume of the epic story as an old lady who — more often than not — requires the player to babysit her as she dodders here and there and everywhere. Her agonizingly slow pace has sent many-a-LOTRO player into screaming fits of “WALK FASTER! I’LL GET YOU A NEW STICK!” But what really seems to spark the hate is that at the end of each escort, Sara then dashes ahead like a marathon sprinter. She was clearly messing with us.

There are plenty of MMO characters who I hate that come to mind, but Sara’s right up there at the top of that list. Tell me yours: Which NPCs do you hate with an undying passion and why? Who are the jerks, the whiny complainers, and the incompetent fools you simply cannot stand?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
