31 down, 11 to go….

If I’ve counted correctly that is.

We capped our current lives this weekend. This life I have run a pure Ranger, with Rach running her mostly Druid with a bit of Rogue & Wizard. The combination has worked out really well (again!). Once we got to a higher level especially, as Rach would Earthquake the mobs while I picked them off. They didn’t really have a chance πŸ˜€

Life 30 and Stuff

Hey peeps, long time no blog   πŸ™‚ Since I’m too tired to revise this lunch time I thought I’d throw an impromptu blog your way.

Hymm capped life 30 a few weeks ago now. Obviously Rach capped her main, Willowing, too – but I’ve no idea what life she is on. (I’m fairly sure she doesn’t know either   πŸ˜› ). I know in my last blog (oh so long ago) I said I intended to do 15 Wizard/5 Warlock but when I actually started the build process and looking at the spells I would lose – I changed my mind. So I went with a pure Deep Gnome Wizard with focus in Illusion, with Necomancy second. I had a fine old time running around and PK’ing and FoD’ing stuff   πŸ™‚

Life 29 Complete

Hey all. Apologies once again for the lack of blogs lately. Work is hectic and we seem to scarcely have a weekend to ourselves to just game lately. But Evennote and Citi are doing a fine job of putting out regular posts. If you don’t already follow them, check them out πŸ™‚

Today saw Hymm and Willowing hit level 30 on what is Hymm’s 29th life. This was my 2nd fighter life and I went 12 fighter/8 rogue and back to my favourite style of play – quarterstaff fighter. It’s been a fun solid build, though I suspect it was made much easier by running with a pure Warlock, which is Rach’s third Warlock life. I think she’s looking forward to moving on to other builds – she’s actually kind of bored of the Warlock now (what?!?).

DDO App Update

Things have been a bit quiet regarding the DDO Puzzles app and I wanted to give those few of you who may be interested in it an update.

It’s not done yet.

OK a bit more than that :-). I really wanted it to be released by the end of June, but we moved house a few weeks ago so the last few weeks have been spent packing, moving, cleaning, decorating – all the fun things you want to fill your spare time :-/ Continue reading

Too many things to do!

So, things have been a bit hectic both in game and in real life over the last month or so. My apologies for the lack of blogs πŸ˜‰ If it’s any consolation, I have another 2 planned that I hope to get out this week.

Hymm

In DDO, I’ve been ploughing through the levels with Hymm again. He’s now on life 28. Which means I completely failed to blog about how the Morninglord life worked out, nor about the Warlock life after that!

The Morninglord life was OK. Not huge DPS, not huge healing, but the aura ticked over nicely and I could hold my own in fights. A handy build for getting a cleric life without being a cleric πŸ™‚

Othala the Warlock – Current Status

As I mentioned in a previous post, my Warlock Othala needs some changes. I would like to keep him as a Warlock, and capped, so I have someone I can pull out for guild epic/legendary raids on a weekend that I a) enjoy playing b) is useful. So I intend to Epic Reincarnate now he’s hit level 30 to correct some areas. But not necessarily straight away – I want to spend some time trying to gather gear.

This is his 3rd life, the previous lives being Artificer & Sorcerer. He is a Fey Pact Warlock and I use the Utterdark Blast to set his damage as sonic & evil. I already know I’ve made a mistake by not putting skill points into perform to increase his sonic spellpower {facepalm} so that’s one thing I will address with his epic TR. But I’d like to know if anybody has any other suggestions.
