We all do it. We’re going along, adventuring in a virtual world, when we see an enemy approaching that makes us want to take an extended detour around it. It’s not that we couldn’t beat that mob, it’s just that we know it’ll take too long. Or be too annoying. Or require too many cooldowns. Or end up using a mechanic that drives us nuts.
So the answer is simply not to fight unless absolutely forced to.
I try not to avoid too many enemies in MMOs, but I’ll admit that I’m not crazy about ones that have extended times-to-kill or ones that run away at 20% or ones that fling weird crowd control spells on me. What about you? What’s the most annoying type of MMO enemy to fight — so you simply don’t?
