"I hope you don't object to my badgering the witless."
Source: Diablo II, Alkor
Does it refer to the group of people who are witless or to my character in the game (maybe I'm just confusing this with the phrase "the witless one")?

Your source observes that the character who speaks this line is notable for "rude humour", and many of his other lines reveal a penchant for insulting his clients. Its precise application can only be ascertained in context; but I think the main point is that is a (weak) pun on a stock line from courtroom dramas, where one lawyer or another is often criticized for badgering the witness.
