    Den of Evil, Monsters: 666?

    Hey,

    [​IMG]

    I was just going through clearing out my den quests on all difficulties. I opened the quest log as soon as it updated, it said 4 monsters remaining. I then killed two more (quest log open) and it dropped like normal. Then, when I killed one more, and it should have gone to 1 remaining. But instead it say "666 monsters remaining." I wandered around for a few minutes, and found a whole pack. I killed the first, and it said "Monsters remaining: " and it was blank. Killed a few more and it went to "10 remaining" then dropped down to zero like normal after. I did get credit for doing the quest...

    so ya... I just found it interesting.

    Too strange/funny to be some random bug...maybe some sort of blizzard-bug joke?

    Re: Den of Evil, Monsters: 666?

    If I remember rightly, this is connected with getting down to the last few monsters and having a Fallen Shaman around in the Den. I think having him raise enough dead fallen to any number greater than five causes the quest log to display the remaining number of monsters as 666.

    Edit:

    @CrimsonOmen: possibly. There's a few others, like how the game refers to anything not explicitly named in it's files (the spirits in Meph's lair, the windows of the "Cathedral of the Dammed") as "An Evil Force".

    It's not that i don't think. I'm pretty sure 'An Evil Force' and 'Missing String' are the only unknown labels the game provides.

    Nice bug. Glad you got a snappy. Let us know if you manage to complete the quest.

    I got credit for the quest after it went down to 0 monsters remaining the second time... so I guess I can't complain.

    looks like the screen shot was editing in a art program to me.

    It's not a bug or edited, it's a small easter egg. I've gotten that message several times myself.

    Re: Den of Evil, Monsters: 666?

    Its a low quality .jpeg hence the linear algebra kicks in to bundle batches of color... its called compression. If you want a .tiff that doesn't have compression, let me know, its only about 1/3 mb. I just figured those running 54k probably didn't want to load the uncompressed image. :wink3:

    But no, I didn't edit it.

    but I might be mistaken as well, blizzard is well known for easter eggs
