This is a really quick look at U21 which was released by DDO yesterday.
I only had a quick hour to run around so I headed up to the Thunder Peak with Rach. Guildies Samius & Jayuus joined us shortly after. Jayuus had already had a run round for a few hours in the Ruins of Thunderholme so he ran us to the first red named, Dagan for a quick kill.

It’s strange, sometimes, how we get from one place to another. And I don’t mean a physical journey.
I joined Twitter back in 2009. Mainly as a resource for development, finding other developers & getting information on the latest technologies. Then I started playing DDO in 2010 and started following people who also played DDO. My twitter stream exploded But, apart from people, I also started following the #DDO hashtag, looking out for information & using it as a way to connect with other players. That resulted in my finding tweets from @Samius & @Lessah who, at the time, were doing regular DDO Cocktail Hour podcasts.
I finally got around to buying the next book in the Olympian series and decided to continue my review of the books (it makes a change from DDO blogs!) Again, I shall try not to give away any of the plot but I will assume you have read the first book.
It’s been a slow few weeks with DDO. You remember how I said it took 3 weeks for Hymm to level from an iconic 15 to 28 last life? Well, not this life! I’ve been running a druid/monk/fighter PDK and I’m almost at level 20. For some reason I have not enjoyed this life. I’m still having a hard time working out why. The damage is good, I have some healing ability, but I just don’t seem to be enjoying it. Well, maybe I’m a bit bored of running the iconics, as I am now on my third iteration. Running those same quests can get a bit monotonous eventually I am thinking of taking a break from the iconic lives on my next TR and iTR’ing back to level 1. Maybe that will break it up a bit.
Druid, artificer & a small army of minions…
Thanks to the DDO Oracle I have a new image on my site. It’s just over there… to the right
From the man himself:
Updated hourly, consider it sort of like a server up display, except instead of a green “yeah” light it shows the load for the last 4 hours. If the load average flatlines to zero, take the hint – that’s red.
Well I can’t TR without putting a picture up….
He’s currently 1 fighter / 2 monk / 12 druid. I can already see problems with the lack of spell points – but I haven’t spent any time sorting much gear out so I’m hoping that will help. I do have a stack of mana pots not doing much at the moment as a short term compensation. But the damage is very nice
He is, however, bigger than Rach’s Shadar Kai!
Have fun, see you around!
Firstly my apologies for this blog. It will probably be short and boring. But I’ve been ill & still feel crappy. I’m mainly posting for consistency with updates on Hymm.
It’s only taken 3 weeks to get from level 15 to level 28, which is pretty fast (for me)! I worked out if I could keep that rate going I’d manage 17 lives this year. To be honest – I can’t see that happening I didn’t think I’d actually hit level 28 this weekend (see note about being ill above) but I managed a few hours over the weekend and, with the help of guildies & the 20% XP boost, capped last night.
