    I was thinking it would be nice to hear a little tune that played when you died in pantheon.... Sorta like a wwwaaaa waaaa as heard in this video:  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TfE93xON8jk

     

    hehe, I think it would be kind of funny... But most importantly when your friends ask you how you're doing you could phonetically tell them.

    Would be interesting to have something like Coin of Fate from Final Fantasy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxs-zXcF-5U

    Something
    slightly ominous, dark, but at the same time calming.

    Have it play until you /release or get resurrected, at which point the music fades out slowly.

    Just a thought :P

    I hope they steer clear from "kind of funny" no offense hehe.

    I'd much prefer something dark and awesome.

    Gotta agree here. I think it's important that the overall "mood" of the game be consistent, which in this case, tends to be a pretty serious tone.

    @Bazgrim, while sad-trombone is probably not tonally ideal, whatever they do will become funny by way of association - eventually.  I hope.  Gamerchick will just have a more difficult phonetic challenge.

    EQ had it's "Ding!" when you levelled.

    Maybe Pantheon can have a "Dong!" when you die?

    Hehehehe.  I instantly thought of a small gong ringing.

    EQOA had a really cool sort of ghostly breath-like scream/moan for a death sound. Not funny at all, but very appropriate to the seriousness of dying.

    How about a fade to black screen with a fade-in bloody red message : "You died"

    ;)

    Or text over “The Ranger has been spared“ or “Your sacrifice has appeased the gods, chance of epic increased by 5%”

    Remind yourself that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer. (Props if you get the reference. ;p )

    I like the silly idea.  There's enough seriousness to go around.  But that doesn't mean it has to be overt.  What if you make it way over the top dark and ominous that it's a joke in itself. That would be perfect.

    Ding! was a joke on how corny the lvl up sound was on EQ. Those are the best and most lasting things.

    Would be nice to be able assign  a sound to a limited number of special ingame events. pre chosen by the Devs.. Not a lot...just a select important few.

     

    That way when someone dies ( levels, discovers a perception item) I might hear somthing different than my groupmate.
