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 😉 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 🙂

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.

Life 26

If you follow my twitter account (I swear Tholgrin, I had that line drafted out before your blog!) then you’ll already know that we capped our main characters at the end of last week. I wasn’t sure we’d be able to do it without repeating some quests (I get bored repeating stuff – unless I’m really after a piece of gear in which case I will bore everybody silly re-running stuff) but Rach suggested we run the Eveningstar challenges when we were just short of XP for level 29. So, as level 28 characters we ran the challenges at level 30. Turns out 5 starring the challenges at that level gets you 116K XP per challenge – nice! So those got us to level 29 (and some). We got the rest of the way to 30 running the U29 quests in Meridia, the epic Orchard quests (I was sure we had already run them so that was a nice bonus when we realised we hadn’t) and two from the Heart of Madness chain.

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.

Character Plans for 2016

Over the Christmas and New Year period I’ve found myself switching between characters quite a lot. Due to the various states they are all in I’ve found myself a bit lost as to who has flagged for what, who is going where. So here’s the blog none of you asked for, something to try and help me focus on my character plans for 2016 in DDO.

Hymm

Hymm is still my main character and is still working towards triple completionist. Along the way I intend to get all the Iconic Past Lives (probably more then I need to be honest) and Epic Completionist too.

Amrath, Levelling and more Amrath

It’s been an eclectic few weeks in DDO for myself & Rach. We have been concentrating on our main characters, as usual, getting them to cap. But we have also thrown in a few weekends running our alts – 2 at epic levels and 1 a newly minted iconic (I say new but he’s actually been level 14 for a few weeks :P)

Hymm & Willowing have been blitzing through the quests as usual. Rach’s barbarian pretty much clears up everything. I just jump in with my Divine Crusader (or “puddle of pee” as it is known in the guild – don’t ask) helping to mop things up and give some extra healing.
