I've just started to play PoE1 again, and noticed something that did annoy me slightly before, and it feels worse now:
characters dying in the midst of combat.
What happens is....
Well, next to nothing. No dying scenes, no special final cry, like "Avenge me, brethren!".
All that happens is that you may or may not notice that the portrait of the death-struck character suddenly disappears, no sound, nada.
Not even a skull-n-crossed-bones portrait replacing it. It's simply disintegrated, and no other characters react. They don't even flinch.
Business as usual. Chop on, sling spells...
This nonsense must cease.
Please, bring us much clearer deaths of characters in combat.
Use the portrait, use voice lines, use animations, sound effects, but let it be obvious that one of our characters succumbed.
EDIT: My entire party this time is composed of my own home-rolled inn-companions!
