A Bard is born.

Posted in MMO on 30/07/2009 by arthur1977

Running around in DDO last night I came to the conclusion that I am not enjoying playing my Paladin.  I think its a great class but my play style is more suited to playing a ranged class in a support role.  Cruising the DDO forums I found this build that might be more to my liking:

I rolled my new character last night and have enjoyed running around Korthos Island with him.  This build also has the built in benefit of being a great haggler which will help me maintain a decent amount of funds to buy wands to keep my party healthy.

In closing I would like to thank sigtrent for all his work creating great builds. If you are looking for some help on Sarlona look up Gutvik the Bard.

See you online.


DDO: Unlimited Stress Test

Posted in MMO on 28/07/2009 by arthur1977

DDO:U Beta1Well I took part in the DDO: Unlimited stress test that was held last night from 8 to 11.  I was only on for about an hour playing my Favored Soul (lv 2.3) and questing on the beginners island.  There were tones of people running around and I had no server problems, which I must say was very nice.  Getting a group was very easy and we decided to do the island quests Sacrifice and Necromancers Doom.  I did not have the quest at the time but the ability to share quest has been added (I think its new) so a group mate just offered them to me.  We had a lot of fun running the quests on hard and trying to take out every boss and treasure offering creature in the dungeons.  I must admit I was a little slow in realizing I was the group healer and it took me a bit to get use to the roll (most of the classes I play are ranged DPS).

All in all it was a great night.  I like some of the slight changes in the game, from having a graphic that tells you the type of damage you are giving and receiving to just the sharper looking interface.  I hope people give this game a second chance (it is f2p as of August 6th), they might be surprised how much they will enjoy it.

The Good Doc…

Well the Blue Jays failed to capitalize on another great start by Roy Halladay.  Its unfortunate that the team has not been able to create a lot of excitement in the J.P. era.  I almost hope that the Jays trade Roy to a team that is in contention and give him a chance to pitch in the post season.  His loyalty to the team and the city of Toronto will be extremely hard to replace, but he is a winner and deserves a chance to be a champion.
