If you follow me on twitter I’m sure you knew this blog was coming 😀
On Monday evening I finally capped my wizard life. It’s been very enjoyable to play him, although I suspect compared against regular caster players he’s fairly low down on abilities. However this life, with the sorcerer life a few back, has proved to me that although they are not my favourites (I still like hitting things) I do like playing them and can contribute with them 🙂
Which is good because I need more of them to hit that triple completionist at some point in the future!
However, for now it’s about hitting completionist. And yes, I know, there are plenty of people already there. But this was my goal, something I wanted to do. Apart from one life where I used an Otto’s box when we had a crazy “Defense guild all go from 1 – 20 in one weekend” they have all been run as normal. The implementation of iconics certainly helped break things up a bit and the last few lives have been mostly that.
Tuesday night we cleared out our TR cache and TR’d back into heroic characters. I’ve gone back to my artibard build, although I will put more in perform this time and have chosen warforged as my race. Rach has TR’d into a human Paladin build, sword & board, so between us we have trapping, some self healing and hopefully aggro management & DPS.
It’s fun (and kind of strange) to be back at low levels. We blitzed through the whole of Korthos in about an hour. I remember when it took a lot longer, with Misery’s Peak being something to be taken carefully. Not anymore! However, getting to level 3 got me that ‘holy grail’ of DDO – except I don’t have room for it in my build! 😦 Maybe I’ll manage it at some point.
I’m pleased I’ve managed to hit the goal I set myself, within the timeline I wanted. I also wanted to say thanks to all my guildies for the help given for my requests “I need XP!” and especially to Rach for TR’ing with me each life. The bad news is she now also has the completionist bug 😛 What does triple completionist get you…..?
I hope everyone had a great 2014. Have a very merry Christmas and I’ll see you in the New Year 😀
