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.

Getting to grips with the Warlock

I’ve blogged about playing Warlock a few times now. Hymm has done 2 lives, 1 melee and one pure caster. I enjoyed the pure Warlock build so much I turned Othala into one. He is currently sitting at level 27 and will be staying as a Warlock for the foreseeable future.

So, I’ve started doing something I don’t normally do – start working out how I can make him as effective as possible and what gear I need to get him.

Oh, bugger, I have a cleric…

Wylle Eckerslike – that’s my cleric.

Firstly, the name… well that’s a joke and to be honest, unless you have an idea of northern UK dialect, it would take way too long to explain. Suffice to say, the name Wylle has had several jokes & comments made about it. “Let’s play with your Wylle”, “Come here so I can touch your Wylle” (that was for a Masters Touch) etc etc. Yes, my guildies are all pervs – that’s why I get on with them so well 😀

Hairy Bum

That’s what I spent most of the weekend lookng at. Why? Because I spent most of my play time this weekend running around with my new druid character in bear form 🙂

I’ve gone half orc with the intention of building him as a tank character. My first tank build actually. While running harbour missions I could just imagine the kobolds screaming ‘there’s a bear in the sewers!!’.

But I had loads of fun running around with my partner and another guildie with their new druid characters once they decided to try the bear form too. At one point last night there were three bears running around the catacombs decimating skeletons left & right.

I suspect they will be nerfed at some point. With three druids in a party, each with a wolf companion & a summons, we seem to be getting through quests very easily. But for now, I shall continue to enjoy the rampage 🙂

See you around!
