I started thinking about how deaths are portrayed and announced to Sapience while browsing the Deathsights thread. Deathsights can be broken into three categories of causes: Adventurer, Denizen, Environment.
Adventurer: X has been slain by the might of Y.
Denizen: A troll has yanked X off a bridge and bashed their head in. (This is just an example, I know all Trolls aren't mindless brutes.)
Environment: X has been slain my misadventure.
Deathsights caused by denizens are generally entertaining and descriptive, while other deaths are really vague and, for me at least, come across as extremely generic and uninteresting. There are some Class based skills(Vivisect, Broken Star, Execute, etc) which give a more detailed and vivid depiction of how the person died, but as far as I've seen, that's about it.
I'd like to suggest adding in new potential Deathsights for Adventurer kills and Enviroment kills, to better give some indication of How they died, without leaving the entirety of the death up vagueness. For example, PvP kills could have various deathsights based on the killer's class:
Wiping their blades clean, X steps over the fallen corpse of Y.
In an impressive display of coordination and skill, X has beaten Y into unrecognition.
Claws dripping with fresh blood, X has rent Y asunder.
These are just some quickly rendered examples to paint a bit of a picture. Alternatively, deathsights for class skills in particular could be expanded to give a more entertaining and personal touch to each PvP death. One thing I noticed a few months back, during a raid, is that the room message from when someone dies to Sniping has changed, something along the lines of the person getting sniped to death 'falling back with an arrow protruding from their heart'.
Stuff like that is amazing, and adds excitement and personalization to the areas of combat and death. For instance, that death(if it's still the generic Y has been slain by the might of X) could be something along the lines of:
X has felled Y with a well placed arrow to the heart.
This is just a thought I was having, and think it would be interesting to discuss, so if you have any thoughts to add or suggestions, feel free to list them below. Especially if you have any ideas for clever and worthy deathsight messages.
