Re-imagining DDO

I love kings forest – it’s my favorite wilderness and when DDO became fantasy for me. I started right away when DDO became F2P and less then a week later I became (and remain) a VIP. I stumbled through Macabre, marveled over the Vale and even with eyes wide followed 3 people out into the […]

DDOCaSplat! 29 – Mikar’s 10 Week Challenge: Week 9 What Goes Up

MikarDDO has set forth a 10 week challenge to complete dungeons on as low a level as possible in both groups and solo play. In this DDOCaSplat! special, you can watch Shamgar attempt to complete these challenges.

Week 9: What Goes Up Heroic Elite at level 15 – This challenge wasn’t as difficult as it sounds.  Lots of running and shooting took care of most of the quest.  Once I moved outside I did fall through the glacier leading me to run to certain working areas to kite/kill.

I did run into a little trouble with a pack of Orc battle clerics in that they were healing each other faster than I could kill them.  Archer’s focus turned out to be the key to overcoming that hurdle.

The end fight was mostly a matter of finding the non respawning mobs that needed to die and pulling them with as few extra guys as possible.  The shadovars were dangerous but ultimately turned out to be a non-issue.  They did use disintegrate but i mostly dodged it and saved the rest.  I was also able to get a lot of shots into the main boss before the final phase so when a mob of orcs came I was able to single him out and finish him off without dealing with the orcs…a nice bonus since I was already up to 2.75 hours…

And yes I totally cheeseballed the flight pillars.

Heroic Elite before Epic Destinies

I have been playing this game since the start of F2P and there are still some Heroic quests I have not had the pleasure of doing.  Two of them up to a few days ago where the Master Artificer and the Lord of Blades. Patrick over on DDOCast always talks about how great a raid […]

The Leaky Dinghy is far roomier inside than its outward appearance. It’s a rather shabby place, but at least it’s clean. The day Wuldin escorted me through its doors there were only a few patrons inside. A Brother Callaway, a dark-skinned fair-haired fellow glanced up from the book he was reading when we walked in.

DDOCaSplat! 27 – Mikar’s 10 Week Challenge: Week 8 Eveningstar Challenges

MikarDDO has set forth a 10 week challenge to complete dungeons on as low a level as possible in both groups and solo play. In this DDOCaSplat! special, you can watch Shamgar attempt to complete these challenges.

Week 8: Eveningstar Challenges – This week’s challenge is to run The Great Tree, Daybreak Ritual, and Fight to the Finish challenges – 1 of each of the Eveningstar Challenge maps.  Scoring this round is (Challenge Level + stars)*100 + score – which turns out to be a pretty darn good metric.  It clearly favors running as high a level as possible but that’s kind of the point of the challenge.

I am already far enough behind in points to be out of serious running.  I’ve also sunk more time in these than I was intending, so its all for personal enjoyment and satisfaction at this point.  The goal this week was to hit 8 points for each, which was GT 7200, DR 3200, FttF 3000.

00:06 – Daybreak Ritual – Official Score: 3494 – Level 30 @ 3 stars – Again the primary goal here is to keep aggro on me not the people/ward I’m trying to protect.  It proved to be simple enough that I was able to sneak away periodically and upgrade the ballistas for a bonus star. With the scoring method, I really only needed to get the 1 star for completion at level 30, but I got 2 more and moved on after a successful first run.

11:56 – Fight to the Finish – Official Score: 3092 – Level 25 @ 2 stars – This was the most difficult of the 3 since again, my build is not exactly a killing machine.  I moved some enhancements around for additional offense but it proved to be not enough to get even the 1 star at level 30. I downgraded to level 25 and was just able to pull in 2 stars which when combined with my points was enough to put me over the 8 point mark.

ScreenShot00000

24:32 – Great Tree: Official Score: 7128 – Level 30 @ 3 Stars – This Challenge is relatively easy, even on level 30.  Its more about keeping aggro off the trees, particularly the life trees, and getting the 3 life trees upgraded as soon as possible. You can upgrade the trees at 50 energy (as opposed to 80 like it says).  Ultimate the only real difficutly came in killing the bosses, which my build is short of being able to achieve being built more for surviving than offense. Since the 7200 required killing more than I could achieve on level 30 I moved on.
