Over-chatty Bodyguards.

I dunno if this is due to the recent build or what gives, but bodyguards are relentlessly chatty now.

Don't get me wrong, I LIKE IT that they talk. I really do, and I DO NOT want you to remove that. Between their voiced dialog, and the fact that they're known and familiar lore figures, as opposed to random schmucks (like the WoD bodyguards were) already make the Legion Bodyguards far far better.

I enjoy their company, but for lich king's sakes, put a cooldown on the frequency of their chatter. Currently on my shaman, Mylra spouts a line every single time I pull a mob, every time I kill a mob, and about 3 to 5 lines while I fight a mob.

When I do a multi-pull she says the lines so fast she sounds like someone having a stroke.

The first time I heard her say "I'm gonna kick yet butt" it was cute.

The sixtieth time I heard her go "I'm gonna....I'm gonna....I'm gonna....I'm gonna....I'm gonna....kick yer butt....kick yer butt....kick yer butt....kick yer butt....kick yer butt...." it got old.

We will be adding throttles to these overly chatty bodyguards to ensure they don't talk quite as much.

I did notice on a world boss the other companions people brought did clutter up the screen with chatter. I'm guessing any time you have 20 people with bodyguards this is bound to happen.

Also, I love Kayn Sunfury and his "Never Surrender!" cry. Please don't change him. He's perfect as is and I don't find him too chatty (given it's once every couple of mobs that he'll even shoot out of the sky).

We will only adjust the permanent bodyguards. We are happy with how the others are playing out.

We will also take a look at those taunts and see what we can do to make them less frustrating.

Its a shame Cho'gall is not a companion.

Him I could listen speak. All day. Every day.

Are you sure?
I said yes!
