Game Time

In real life, school is kicking my butt and leaving very little time for anything else (like DDO). In DDO, NWO is kicking my butt, leaving very little time for my SFG friends. Maybe when the xpack releases we’ll all have time for some DDO. In the meantime, snippets of SWTOR appease my inner gamer. […]

It’s Almost Summer! Have Some Wallpaper

There is a lot of minutia in the game, often beautiful, nearly always overlooked. No more! I herewith determine to be the champion of minutia. More or less.

Vexing Myself Thoroughly

No luck, but that’s okay, I can overcome lack of luck with persistence.

Or so I thought.

The Owlbear An Intrinsically Stupid Monster

Maybe the Owlbear is supposed to be comic relief? After an evening of slaying orcs and dragons and umber hulks, the DM throws in an Owlbear for a good laugh?

A Little Disturbing

DDO

Rite of passage

DDOGame Play
  If you’ve done the quest Repossession, then you’ll probably recognize the image above. So let me explain why Moggy (I think that’s what it’s called) scares me so.   In DDO, I only have one true character (all others are bank/mules), my perma-TR Rilama, whose aim is to attain uber-completionist status (3 times of […]

First Time For Everything

DDOGame Play
  Well, I didnt have the most exciting weekend on DDO. But I did manage to get a few things done. Started out with Comic doing the final Necropolis 2 quest. Made it through the maze with ease considering Comic seemed to know where exactly to go. I only got lost once in the first […]

Where’s my Battle Ostrich

Through the wonders of logic and code some classes have pets. Not cosmetic pets but somewhat useful pets. With the plethora of augment crystals the DDO store kindly makes available a bag for these crystals. I want a Battle Ostrich. I want to ride it around, it will be my mount. I needs to level […]

DDOcast 284 – Update 18: Disciples of Shadow

DOWNLOAD MP3 (Right click and "Save As")

Join Sig & Anne as they walk-through the latest update for Dungeons and Dragons Online! Many thanks to our favorite Turbine Crew: Producer Athena, Producer Glin and Tolero for introducing to the new update!

New Quests

Disciples of Shar – Deep in the murky foothills of the Storm Horn Mountains, fierce wolves and mountain lions roam with hungry abandon. You must search a network of sullen caves hiding the Shar cultists responsible for terrorizing the people of Eveningstar, but Shar cultists, priestesses, and even an Owl Bear stands between you and the truth of events in Wheloon city. Free to all players!

Escape Plan – A river barge full of prisoners from Eveningstar is being transported to Wheloon Prison, and a high priority target is among them. You have been hired to guard the river barge as it floats downstream, but prepare yourself for any danger as rumors of this high priority prisoner is sure to have reached ears not currently aboard the barge. Free to all players!

Shadow of a Doubt – Players who pre-purchase Shadowfell Conspiracy will gain immediate access to the first expansion quest! Inside the safety of Wheloon Dock, the magistrate interrogates Shar clerics for information regarding their suspected plot. Skilled adventurers might have more luck than the magistrate, but the very shadows conspire against any who might bend the prisoner too far. Will you spare the guilty and innocent alike within Wheloon, or does justice have no place in a city swimming in shadow?

New Icon Character: Bladeforge

Bladeforged – forged anew, a shining beacon of your kind. A powerful, offense focusd Paladin, transformed by the Lord fo Blades inthe fires of the Creation Forge. The Lord of Blades spoke. New life coursed through your wood-and-metal frame. There in the Creation Forge you had become bright, glorious and true.

New Items

Glamered Armor – The cosmetic armor system has been completely revamped to use a cosmetic appearance equipment slot! Slot cosmetic armor enchanted with the Glamer spell to change the appearance of any equipped armor. Cosmetic armor, also known as Glamered Clothing, has one type of visual appearance and can be applied for all classes, races and gender – except Warforged in most cases. Just be careful and watch out for beholders!

Skill tomes – Permanently increase one of your character’s skills with a tome! You select the skill you want to increase once in game by activating the Tome, where at you’ll be presented with a list of possible skills to increase. You cannot select Use Magic Device – UMD tomes are available separately. Bonuses from tomes persist through reincarnation.

Healing Elixirs – Collectors in Stormreach now have powerful new healing potions for sale! These Elixirs of Healing provide a large instant burst of healing, followed by a heal-over-time effect that continues to heal for ten seconds. Elixirs of Healing function equally well on living creatures, constructs, and undead who use them. Yes Warforged and Pale Masters, that means you too.

Does This Outfit Make Me Look Gimpy?

Monks were among the classes introduced after a bit after DDO launched, and a bit of time before I joined the game. In fact, I joined the game because Monks existed (having enjoyed the original Neverwinter Nights and Neverwinter Nights 2) and would not have played DDO at all if they were absent (one of […]

Geoff posted a bit ago about succubi and dryads and what would be their origins. I could not remember any Dungeon and Dragon’s based origin story for the Succubus at all. As we all know D+D monsters in the beginning were developed from current mythos so I would hazard a guess that it was so […]
