No it's not just from falling, i was "incapacitated by misadventure" the other day running an vol 1 epic quest, the main baddie incapacitates you and you wake up far far away with the complete dread and everything.
Falling, crossing the Watcher Stones in Angmar without the Epic-given trait, green water in CD/Uru, icy water in Forochel...
Then there are the glitchy deaths due to misadventure -- like falling through holes in the map, walking into an invisible cloud in Lost Temple when you have the eye..I think there are a bunch of those as well.
I think you get that message for any deaths caused by the environment (including but not limited to the ground )? I was going to say any deaths outside combat but I recall a death by the acid pits inside CD While fighting slugs.
I got it once by jumping my horse down the hill leading north out of
aughaire. It was what would normally should have been a leg break, a very small ways to fall forward. My best guess is that the location reader logged a far greater drop than I actually did.
Killing a Boogan somm'ers, 'cause they remind me of Bogarts.
Re: incapacitated by misadventure reasons?
While running The Library with a Champ who likes to make people cheer him, we finished a fight and he had well over half morale but did have a poison on him, he did the 'cheer me' button and killed over dead from misadventure.
****Bogarts! We hates Bogarts!****
Best Mod quote EVER = "Closing the thread, as the OP has quit the forums." - Patience
anything that is an instant kill (regardless of mitigation, buffs, health, ect) and it not from an npc (this does exclude the 1 shots in the ettenmoors). This would include falling to your death, certain terrains that kill you (green water in CD, fire, lava, and actually running off the map into no mans land). There is actually 1 point in the book quest where you are incapacitated by misadventure as well.
The only one left that I can think of is the reaver on silverlode that managed to get the name misadventure. This is KBs = "you have been incapacitated by misadventure."
Anyone know the reasons for NPCs being killed by misadventure(are they the same?)? I was in Annúminas yesterday and saw on chat an elder angmarim npc getting killed by misadventure on two separate occasions(and it wasn't a player/pet).
I know this is a little bit of a necro but wanted to add my report of getting killed by "misadventure". I was helping a kin-mate questing in Lashkarg, ran up a hill and got stuck next to a tent trying to examine a "chest". Suddenly - boom - killed by "misadventure". I will admit I was jumping around trying to get unstuck.
This just makes me wondering: who else when they were new noticed "Hey, falling doesn't damage you in this game" and then jumped down from a big height for fun because of that?
Anyway, I once had a very weird one: I logged in with my character in a falling pose. Fortunately, I didn't get incapacitated yet, but I couldn't fix it by logging out or walking through a door or anything. So, I just decided to float my way through the game and do stuff. Suddenly, somewhere between half an hour and an hour, I "finally" got incapacitated randomly.
I think the misadventure that killed my elf was poison out of battle. He got shot by a goblin arrow, killed the goblin, walked away, and dropped dead from misadventure which seemed to take the form of a green gas cloud.
I remember somewhere in Moria (90% sure it was one of the session plays), there were these fancy little lava fountains that lined one of the halls, with lava just falling neatly into it. Maybe the poor dwarf realized there was a balrog down the hall, but for whatever reason, I decided to jump and see if there were invisible walls around the lava.
That is probably accurately labeled as misadventure.
Well you get incapacitated either from losing all of your morale in battle (being defeated) or by falling off something too high. Being 'incapacitated by misadventure' is part of a message which you may or may not see when completing the deed "A Deep Well"
That was a deep well
You have injured yourself in a fall!
You have been incapacitated by misadventure.
You collapse from injuries sustained in a fall!
My most memorable death by misadventure, lvl 50 trying to swim from Froggmorton to Hobbiton-Bywater while drunk for the Inn-League Challenge.
My most recent death by misadventure I was stuck between two fences in Snowbourn and tried to jump out of it on my war-steed. It was only a 4 foot hop but died from the massive lag spike that hit at the same time.
