The Damsels Game, Episode 133, Testy Festy

The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them.  It’s time to confess your sins! Only the Seeds can save us. We aren’t sure how but things really went down this time in Far Cry 5. Always remember, have a plan to separate the bull from his mountain oysters. Guild Wars 2 is a trek through fantasy content that is engaging and fun as well with our baby Asuras.

            • Mythery has become ***
            • Tom Clancy

      • Tell us the story of your internet 🙂

      • Lessah:  You can’t do things when you smell bad. 
      • Myth: I can’t read my map after I’ve been skunked.
      • Sahba: All four seasons of The Good Place are now available on Netflix 🙂

Guild Wars 2 The Life of an Asura

My girl, Mythbehave, is a recent graduate of the College of Synergistics. The members of this college study magical metaphysics, cybernetic systems, and the theory of abstract structures. Sounds fancy doesn’t it? What it boils down to really, is a focus on the study of patterns and mystical complexities over the development of concrete applications BUT seems to provide the foundation for a more coherent and profound understanding of the Eternal Alchemy, the unifying system of the cosmos. 

Sahba and Gemalin (Lessah) are graduates of the College of Dynamics. The members of this college are typically enthusiastic about their highly experimental work, spontaneously imagining potential solutions to problems no one else yet perceives. They are known for devising ingenious, highly unstable and equally unpredictable contrivances, always on the bleeding edge of asura high magitechnology. Members of the college believe that an experiment is only a failure if nothing is learned from it.They are known to have an acute interest in charr technology.

As my final, I invented a teleportation device and it seems like as soon as word got around about it that everyone and their momma tried to steal it from me and claim it as their own. They all wanted the Snaff Prize. During the contest when I was showing the operation to the judges a Tejo’s krewe interrupted the proceedings and tried to take it by force but in the middle of the fight Councillor Flax announced it the winner as part of Valkk’s krewe (my krewe). Tejo screamed that it was his and he wouldn’t stand for that decision and then took off with the translocator.

Damsels Game Episode 130, That Awkward Moment

The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them.  We are still trying to break into the Vault of Night in Dungeons and Dragons Online. Things went well on that front but the future is unclear. Dragons should not be guarding anything that doesn’t belong to them so good luck making a withdrawal from the bank. We also played Outlaws of the Old West, an early access survival crafting game, and we talked Sahba into trying out Guild Wars2. Thanks so much for listening!

This week, the Damsels sponsor has a correction to their advertisement for a free toaster: 

The Kundarak Bank has amended its offer of a free toaster following customer complaints. 

 

Apparently, when asked, Fred replied back with “Please include 75$ for shipping and handling.” They apologize to the one person who asked for a free toaster. Still… Send an in-game mail to “FierceFred” and ask, “Hey man, Where is my totally free, no conditions apply, toaster?” 

It’s all about the language.

Guild Wars 2!!!

 

Sorry other games, but for the time being this is what takes up space in my head. I dream about this game. When I sleep I have dreamed about it, when I daydream I think about it, and then I actually think about it on purpose. SO, this is going to be the beginning in a series of stories I will be telling about our adventures as Asuras in the Guild Wars world. It will be fun, I promise. First let me talk a little about the world in general. There are five playable races and each begin in their own country/land of origin. BTW the world is a continent called Tyria and it is huge!

There are humans of course and were once the dominant species but they have lost their homeland and mainly live in Kryta. As you  travel the continent you can see their once magnificent kingdoms lying in ruins.

 

There are the Charr, who are a race of large, savage, feline creatures. War defines them and victory is all that matters. They are raised to be warriors from birth (but boy are they cute!) and have no gods. Their main hangout is the Crucible of Eternity.

 

Norn are a race of towering hunters and when I say towering, the average Norn is 9 feet tall. They hail from the snow covered Far Shiverpeaks but have been forced to relocate to central Shiverpeaks. The Great Lodge of Hoelbrak is a nice place to visit. Good parties.

The Sylvari are from the Grove and they aren’t born there, they awaken. They awaken beneath the Pale Tree with knowledge they have gathered from their pre-life Dream. They are a noble race and seek adventure and travel. They are the newest race in Tyria and they are about the same size as humans but have leaves where hair would be.

 

Asura are a race of artisans who secretly lived below ground until they were forced out by the Great Destroyer (GW1). They quickly adapted to surface life and are one of the most powerful races in Tyria. They are considered alchemagical inventors and intellectual giants. They are typical between 2’10” and 3’11” tall, slender, with head, hands, and feet in a bit exaggerated dimensions. Highly articulate ears and large eyes that come in a variety of colors. We won’t talk about the shark like teeth. Rata Sum is an interesting and amazing place and also their home.

 

We are playing three Asura who plan to go out and get into plenty of trouble. Sahba is an engineer, jack of all trades and eventually master of many. She is currently healing us with a healing turret. I’m a mesmer, one day I’ll be a master of misdirection. I already have three clones I can create to fight by my side. And Lessah is an assassin or maybe a thief or something that she will tell us about because I can’t find any information about assassins and their super secret stuff.

 

 

  • Other games

 

    • Raft

 

  • Outlaws of the Old West
  • This game has real potential. I wish they would do the following:
  • Clean up the crafting system so that some benches will act as duel purpose benches. Why do you need a spinning wheel and a sewing bench? Put them on the same work bench.
  • Fix Guard/ Hired gun AI. They stop following you and get bugged very easily.

 

 

 

  •  Guild Wars 2

 

    • I LOVE love love love this game. And it’s not just because Crispin Freeman’s Voice is all over the place. It is engaging and fun and I feel like I have really earned everything I have. 
    • I also feel incredibly engaged by the story arcs. Don’t get me started on how much I appreciate the graphics.

Damsels of DDO Episode 129, A Not So Small Small Problem

The Damsels are three lady gamers who talk about the games they play. This time we had some big problems with A Small Problem in DDO. We also decided to break into a vault…at night. I mean OF night! Vault of Night. Only you can’t just rock up to a vault and say “Hey, can I get in?” There are steps involved. Who knew? Sahba and Mythery also tried to tackle the Wild West for the low price of 8 dollars. We will see how that went. Thanks so much for listening!

A Ludicrous Predicament

 

I have some not very nice things to say about this quest so I’m going to do like Thumper’s mom said and keep them to myself. I will say, this wasn’t the 1st time this quest made me feel like I had wasted a small chunk of my life. I was very happy when Sahba said she didn’t mind redboxing Under the Big Top AND that she was able to get in that way. That quest is a tad long but 4 chests at the end! Woot.

Party in House P

 

We produced a play! Rave reviews, so professionally performed, coming to your neighborhood soon! I guess we did almost all of the optionals in party poopers except the one called “I’m not ready to come out of the closet so go away or I’ll bite your head off.” Lessah doesn’t like that one because she thinks we shouldn’t force someone out of the closet, even if they are a big scary demon. There are a ton of optionals in this quest and we did do most of them but I don’t exactly know the separation between all of them and the actual quest. I was going to look that up on the wiki so I could talk about just the optionals here BUT the ads on the WIKI are out of control. Seriously! They are covering the content. Two ads on the party crashers page covered almost the entire page. And when I closed them there was just a big white splotch there in their place, so I still couldn’t see the page. What the heck?? I closed the page and went back hoping maybe different/smaller ads would be there or something but no luck. Couldn’t look at that page. I think I (very sweetly) mentioned this a while back but no one listened and now it is much worse. DDO has such a nice wiki, it is a shame to have it ruined like this. There is no reason ads need to overlay page content. That’s all I have to say. For now.

Damsels of DDO Episode 127, Just Talking

The Damsels are three lady gamers who talk about things that are important to them in the world of gaming, especially Dungeons and Dragons Online. The world is ending or whatever so we might as well play games! The Damsels have been in quarantine from Epics and this play session was no exception.  How is this ten+ year old game still cranking out fun content? Let’s talk about it. Thanks so much for listening!

This week, the Damsels have a COMMERCIAL! 

The sentient gem of the cowboy is REAL…fake. 

 I want one! 

Fierce Fred reported that he did not receive any Pit Restart manual. It may or may not have been a return mail from me. But still. Business is booming for that company. So remember, it pays to advertise. Congratulations to Stormreach Spiritual Relocation services, We put the “ED” in dead. Because Dead without the ED is just Da. 

 

Intro:

Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Myth corrects and Sahba sleeps

 

  • That time me and Myth tell everyone about our tabletop D&D character backstories 

 

 

  • To Sahba, Do you set an alarm for….. (surprise question because Sahba is the worst at not waiting to react or answer until the live show) 

 

 

  • What we learned:
      • Lessah:  I should have been a helicopter pilot and I wasn’t meant to have a pet hyena.   
      • Myth: blah blah blah
      • Sahba: ???

 

Rumors, News, and Lies 

 

    • So, what’d I miss? 

 

  • Before we start!  Spoiler!!! 

 

  • RuPaul’s Drag Race is the only reason I still have cable. That and HBO. But should I pull the plug on the cable? I get my news more often than not from PBS Newshour OR…. WION because I love how savage they are towards the rest of the world OR… Australia. 
    • HBO Go worth it? 
    • You can watch RuPaul’s Drag race on the VH1 App. In fact, I found Drag Race UK. 
    • All-Stars started Friday night. Looks like it’s going to be good although there were a couple of girls from season 3 that I didn’t recognize. I did, however, recognize Ongina from season 1!

The Lost Gatekeepers

Here’s how I understand this, the Gatekeepers, who are these really old druids that hail from Khorvaire and are the protectors of Eberron decided they were interested in seeing what was going on in Xen’drik. So they put one of their “druid groves” in the harbor of our lovely Stormreach. 

The Home of Memory

I guess the first thing that happened when they got here was someone got lost because the first guy we met, Thel Shattertusk, asked us to go to the Cerulean Hills and look for him. We went out there…I don’t think we actually found any lost people. I think we may have seen some things that, well…let’s just say that next, we went over to an abandoned mine.

Heart of the Problem

Some guy named Capstone said he was over here finding new old things or old new things. I’m not exactly sure but we went to see what he was talking about. Mostly what we found were things trying to kill us, like fire mephits and a big magma thing, plus there were some clay golems hanging around in there.

Rosemary’s Ballad

After we left the mine we ran into Lily Hargrove and I think but am not exactly sure that she wanted us to go to the garden behind her family’s farm. I suppose it is about time to admit that up to this point, in and around all of these places we have been going we have been seeing and hearing things. Like memories, these other people’s memories so things were a little weird. It took us a hot minute to find the way into the garden but there was a disembodied voice talking to us, lots of notes left around, and many op memories/visions to behold. In the end, we had to kill Sage Hargrove.

The Sacred Bounty

Next, we found ourselves in a run-down temple and I really don’t know what we were doing in there. It was pretty small but once we were in we couldn’t seem to get out without solving the puzzle in each room. Then there was a big Vine Horror blocking the exit of course. We’re out so there’s that. Did I mention that those crazy visions were in there too???

Killed hags!!

 

 

  • Other games

 

  • 7 Days to Die just keeps popping into our hearts. I have a little to no zombies game where I am building a… birdcage. 

 

 

  •  Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon

 

      • What a great game! It is NOT a cakewalk. But it’s a great game to play with friends. 
        • If you get seen by UNIDAD (the police in the game) you are Screwed. Where do they get their money/ support/ training? These guys are deadly. The thing to do if you live in this setting is work for them! These guys eat. 

 

  • Subsistence

 

      • The graphics in this game look a ton better and now there is a map!
      • Fishing is a great way to survive until the river freezes over in winter. 
        •  Fishing traps suck. They need work. They don’t augment your time in terms of taking time out of your day to fish because they rarely catch fish. 
      • Animal traps are pretty cool, just don’t run out of bait. Also, check them each day on your route to look for supplies. The animals in them will eventually die. 
      • It is so hard to survive. The struggle bus is real but not impossible. That sets this game apart from other survival crafting games like Green Hell.  

 

  • Guild Wars 2

 

      • I forgot how fun and engaging this game is! There is so much to do and explore. I pay nothing to play this game. They reward me for logging in every day. The currency system is not broken. I have collected/ earned all of ten gold pieces in all my playtime.  
        • For the most part, I rely on Karma and level rewards and LUCK to upgrade my gear. It has worked out well. I don’t have to worry about the next shiny thing that’s going to make me more powerful, I can just play and explore and not worry about it. 
        • I can play alone and accidentally run into events with other players or I can play with friends and just fill up hearts by doing really dumb things. 
          • Example: We went to a town where the goal was to participate in a tavern party. We got XP for it! 
      • Again, this game was a one-time expense for me. If I had to choose if a subscription was required, (right now) I would leave DDO as a VIP. There is just too much that appeals to me. Example: I am a chef. I explore and pick wild veggies and kill animals for meat and make meals. The meals give me and my friends XP bonus and other buffs. I didn’t BUY that. I MADE it.

Damsels of DDO Episode 126, The Lost Gatekeepers

The Damsels are three lady gamers who talk about things that are important to them in the world of Dungeons and Dragons Online. Hey, remember that time our lives went pear-shaped? It’s like the entire world tried to use the teleport spell and ended up in space over the marketplace. Anyway, we ran some new quests for some reason! Let’s talk about plot holes that you can drive a truck through! Thanks so much for listening! 


powered by podcast garden

This week, the Damsels have a new/ extended sponsor. 

Is your home/ guild hall/ quest line haunted by spirits and or ghosts? Well, our team of experts will put those apparitions back inside the dungeon where they belong. Stormreach Spiritual Relocation services is a small, yet hard-working offshoot of Stormreach Burial Services. Send us a message in-game today. Available only on the Argonnessen server for now but we are expanding. Send an In-game message with a scroll of the Black Moon or Pit Restart Guide to Fierce Fred and we will do our best to fit you into our schedule! 

Stormreach Spiritual Relocation services, We put the “ED” in dead. Dead without the ED is just Da. 

 

Intro:  

 

The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Sunday, May 10th. This is our 126th show.  

 

Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Myth corrects and Sahba sleeps

 

  • I’ll bring the elephant into the room. 
  • Soooooooo… that time the whole world sucked even though we were all at home. 

 

    • The store is awkward. Lines to get in. 
    • No standardized protocol for testing. 
    • All I do now… touch my face. 

 

  • What we learned:
      • Lessah:  You can make potatoes in like…a million different ways.   
      • Myth:  I learned that Netflix needs to update my billing information, Apple needs me to change my password, and someone has a naked video of me and is going to send it to my whole contact list unless I pay them $3000! My life as I knew it is over and will never be the same. ::sob:: 
      • Sahba: Minecraft 10 installation sucks

I don’t know where to put this but the DDO wiki has ads that are about an ⅛ of a page size on top of the page so you can’t read what is there and when you click the close button it asks why you want to close it and gives 4 options, 1 of which is that it is covering the page and then thanks you after you click it. Google then tells you it has closed it and I suppose that is technically true because the ad is gone but a big blank white spot is left in its place which is still covering the page. Just thought I’d say something just on the off chance whoever controls such things might hear this and want to know. 😛

 

Rumors, News, and Lies 

 

  • Question(s) of the show – 
    • So, no GenCon? 

 

  • Before we start!  Spoiler!!! 

 

  • RuPaul’s Drag Race is back!!
    • We have a guest who is here to talk with us JUST about this! 
    • Celebrity drag race. 
      • AMAZING! 
        • Favorite drag queens coming back as mentors. Bob and more Bob, Allyssa Edwards, Trixie Matel. 
        • I gagged so hard over the host from American Gladiator. 
    • This has been an amazing season! These girls can still be shady but you can tell that they genuinely like each other. Or at least don’t hate each other. 
      • Jada Essence Hall is a clear front runner. Love Hedi, she’s a fan favorite. 
      • Gigi Goode is going to be in the top three for sure. 
      • I agree with you about Crystal. Burt and Ernie Drag. 
      • Heidi is a big time FAN FAVORITE. 
    • Who is your fav so far?
      • Everyone seems to be okay so far. I think my favs are Gigi, Jackie, Brita, and Widow. I haven’t made up my mind about Nicky yet. Not a fav but I can’t decide if she is mean or just uncomfortable. I like Crystal but her kind of drag is not my fav. I think she is VERY insecure and hiding behind all of those costumes. I’m pretty sure when she isn’t in drag she is hiding behind those giant glasses and has no idea what a hottie she (he) is.
    • Predictions
      • So, up there were my thoughts after the 2nd episode. This season has been so good it’s unfortunate that we didn’t get to talk about it after every couple of episodes. These queens are really pretty amazing this time. Final 3; Gigi Goode, Jackie Cox, and Jaida Essence Hall (I’m wavering between Jaida and Crystal). Winner: Jackie/Gigi???

Damsels of DDO Episode 125, Epic Delera’s Tomb

The Damsels are three lady gamers who talk about things that are important to them in the world of Dungeons and Dragons Online. Hey, remember that time the whole world went into quarantine? Us too. If you’re home anyway, you might as well give us a listen! We ran the Epic Delera’s Tomb Series and we will talk about it. Thanks so much for listening! 


powered by podcast garden

This week, the Damsels are sponsored by the Stormreach Burial services. Not sure what to do with your dead fellow adventurer? Well, we do! Bring us that body or give us a pick-up location and we will take that corpse off your hands, no questions asked. Tombs and burial rights available upon request. Give us a call today! 

 

Intro:  

 

The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Sunday, March 15th. This is our 125th show.  

 

Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Myth corrects and Sahba sleeps

 

  • Soooooo. Remember that time we were all under Quarantine?
  • How is Hardcore going?   

 

 

  • What we learned this week:
      • Lessah:  You can never have enough TP.  
      • Myth:  The amount of money Judge Judy makes blows my mind.
      • Sahba: Minecraft Java Edition is not the PC version

 

Rumors, News, and Lies 

 

  • Question(s) of the show – 
    • So, GenCon going to happen this year??? Or is that too soon to ask?

 

  • Before we start!  Spoiler!!! 

 

Before we start before we start I have a Yoplait rant. I’m not a huge fan of yogurt. I like it but the texture of regular yogurt is a little weird so if I‘m going to eat it I want greek yogurt. However, my husband eats it and likes to take it in his lunch. So I was looking at yogurt a few weeks ago and saw that yoplait has something called Starburst flavored yogurt. What!?! I must try this! So I buy some cherry Starburst flavored Yoplait and must tell you that this stuff is amazing!! If you like Starburst anyway. It tastes just like a cherry starburst and I’m going to have to stuff myself with it until the novelty wears off. Not much of a rant you say? Okay, so ever since I can remember seeing Yoplait in the stores it has come in this weird container. It had a small little round opening at the top about an inch and a half in diameter and gradually gets larger as it goes down to the bottom. The bottom is convex and sealed to the sides. If you can’t see my problem I will explain. 1. There isn’t a lot of room to maneuver the spoon around to scrape the cherry goodness from the sides. 2. The shape of the bottom and the way it is sealed to the sides coupled with the thickness and shape of the spoon make it impossible to get everything from the bottom of the container. Summary, tastes great, frustrating to eat! My real question is, why have they been making this terrible container for so many years??? Has no one ever complained before or are they just not listening? I don’t understand. By the way, the first person I bothered mentioning this to agreed with me. So I know I’m not the only one that feels this way.

 

  • Dr. Who is back: 
    •   
  • RuPaul’s Drag Race is back!!
    • Who is your fav so far?
      • Everyone seems to be okay so far. I think my favs are Gigi, Jackie, Brita, and Widow. I haven’t made up my mind about Nicky yet. Not a fav but I can’t decide if she is mean or just uncomfortable. I like Crystal but her kind of drag is not my fav. I think she is VERY insecure and hiding behind all of those costumes.

Damsels of DDO Episode 124, Epic Catacombs

The Damsels are three lady gamers who talk about things that are important to them in the world of Dungeons and Dragons Online. This week we talk about level-ups, mergers, and acquisitions. Then we have to talk Epic Catacombs and why the Silver Flame doesn’t have more nepotism in it. Seriously, if your brother is the ArchBishop, why are you standing outside the church like you don’t have two coppers to rub together? There’s a story there Fryer, and we want to know what it is. Thanks so much for listening!

This week, the Damsels are sponsored by the Silver Flame. The Sentient Gem of the Cowboy. Tired of being humiliated in an English accent? Well, why not let it be in a classic Texas drawl? 

How Ya’ll Doin?  

That boy ain’t right. 

He was all hat and no cattle. 

Well bless their heart. 

You need all that loot. You’re as poor as a church mouse. 

If you can’t run with the big dogs, stay under the porch. 

I’m madder than a wet hen.

  • What we learned this week:
      • Lessah:  If you don’t have your 25% striding clicky on, champion spiders can catch and kill you.  
      • Myth:  The amount of money Judge Judy makes blows my mind.
      • Sahba: End reward for epic vs heroic delera’s

Damsels of DDO Episode 123, The Admiral of Bling

The Damsels are three lady gamers who talk about things that are important to them in the world of Dungeons and Dragons Online. Epic Deleras Tomb? Are you kidding me? Epic Catacombs?!

Thanks so much for listening!

Yo Ho Ho and What Not!

This week, the Damsels are sponsored by the Silver Flame. Congregation numbers have been down lately and the Silver Flame is doing a big membership drive. So join today. Only a handful of scandals are under our belt. Not like those Sovereign Host guys. Or that Devourer. Come slay evil with us and we will allow you to purchase the Flametouched Iron weapon of your choice. Ask your Silver Flame representative today and they will explain everything. They are probably not possessed by a succubus or evil spirits. 

Intro:  

 

The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Sunday, February 16th. This is our 123rd show.  

 

Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Myth corrects and Sahba sleeps

 

  • Something is wrong 

 

    • I logged on to see about doing a challenge and something weird happened. 
  • Check in! 
    • I got my jewel and my weapon and life is GOOD. 

 

  • What we learned this week:
      • Lessah:  I am more powerful than I thought I was.  
      • Myth:  I hate ads that follow me around a page when I’m trying to read something!
      • Sahba: I may be going to Indy … but not for GenCon.

 

Rumors, News, and Lies 

 

  • Update 45 – A very long list 
    • New Class: The Alchemist
    • The Anniversary Event Returns – through March 8th
    • Delera’s and Catacombs have been updated and epicified, including an epic version of the Voice of the Master. 

 

  • Question(s) of the show – 
    • Are you going to play an alchemist?

 

  • Before we start!  Spoiler!!!

  • ARK
    • We went to a cave full of bats and lava. The results were mixed but some of our tames made it out alive
      • RIP two raptors and a whole bunch of birds. 
    • We are breeding birds, making potions and we have tamed a big pig. 
    • We have a very long list of tasks.
    • I am very much looking forward to playing on the next map!
  • Subnautica Below Zero early Access
    • I have been mining but I’m not sure what else I’m supposed to be doing. Time for another break? 
      • Things I love about SBZ: 
        • Marguerite (a really mean NPC)
        • Base building and painting things fun colors
      • Things I miss: 
        • A sense of loss and isolation 
        • In the original game, there was this feeling of urgency. Your character is dying of a disease that the planet is infected with. You are all alone and you have to find a cure. In this one, you aren’t really alone but Altera leaves you alone a lot. I wish they would guide me a bit more. Or at least have the decency to be in trouble. 
      • Red Dead Redemption 2
        • I just started it but it’s very cool.

The Soul Splitter

Finding Dorris 

 

So, back to Sharn we go, this was not objectionable to me. I rather like Sharn, with it’s pretty clean streets and fancy shops. As long as you stay out of the Cogs it’s a nice place to visit. So why, may I ask, why did we go straight to the docks when we got there??? We talked to someone named Quigley, who turned out to be the deputy harbormaster’s secretary’s assistant. Quigley said Dorris was missing and asked that we find her. For some reason we said we would. I mean, Dorris and I aren’t all that close. Seems to me she is always trying to get us into trouble and Sahba didn’t even remember who she was! The first time we met her she sent us into a fort full of psychotic minotaurs and the next time we saw her she talked us into helping break some friend of hers out of a crazy dangerous prison. Anyway here we are looking for her. So the first time we were in Sharn we met up with the evil Vaunt who had managed to lay his hands on evil device to do evil things with evil intent, evilly. Apparently some vile people got their paws on…let’s say an altered version. The altered version of this vile apparatus will cleave the soul from a warforge and turn them into docile, obedient, slaves. Starting on the docks with the package Dorris was supposed to have picked up, we collected 5 or 6 clues which allowed to move to the next section, the Cogs factory. This is where we found some sad soul split warforge. 🙁 I think they tried to kill us. Then we went to a place called the Money Pit, beat up a bunch of guys, found out where the trainer lived and went there. When we got there we eavesdropped on a conversation cuz that’s just fun but that made us get into a fight with the trainer. And let me tell you, that dude’s house is full of traps and he is too tough to be bothered by them. We kicked his butt anyway. Poor Dorris, she was there and so was the Lord of Blades. He is impressive looking, just sayin’. Yeah yeah we found her.

Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Myth corrects and Sahba sleeps

    • The anatomy of life and death
      • Story time: reading your party members the riot act in Prison of the Planes 
    • How are you? 
      • Mythery ::sob:: I died!!!! Why am I going first?ugh It was traumatizing. ::sniffle:: My tummy hurt, I almost cried, and I think I was close to tossing my cookies. The tummy ache didn’t go away for a long time. People were really nice about it though. A couple of people sent me tells saying they we really sorry. I don’t know if they were people I know or not, I didn’t recognize the names but it was super nice. It did make me feel a little better. Maybe not better about dying but just better in general. I really didn’t like that girl that much anyway since she was a tiefling. I think it was just that I had taken such good care of her, packed her in wool and cotton, as Lessah would say. But since she earned enough favor for me to make a drow I have re-rolled Mythery proper. She is much better now but she is only 9 at the moment.

        • Teamwork 
        • If people are wandering around, stay in the background. Someone is going to die 

 

  • What we learned this week:
      • Lessah: Forgotten Realms is empty 
      • Myth: I have learned all kinds of little things since being on this hardcore server but the one thing I really didn’t know that I learned is that I don’t think I like smashing boxes.
      • Sahba: Pugging on the HC is easy – everyone is very nice.

Intro:  

 

The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Monday, August 13th at the crack of midnight Eastern time. This is our 114th show.  

 

Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Myth corrects and Sahba sleeps

      • So…did anyone else do anything interesting this week? How have you guys been? 
      • I played the test server and I still have questions that I can’t find the answers to: 
        • At the end of the Hardcore League, we will be providing free Character Transfers to everyone – alive or otherwise. 

 

  • Lessah’s tips for survival in the hardcore league. 

 

  • Your money is for your protection. Do not leave any loot in a chest. Sell what you can’t break down. 

 

        • Resist pots/ protection pots/ heroism/ jump etc
          • Low-level collectibles that you don’t plan to craft with are to be turned in for heal-over-time potions, these can be used in conjunction with other buffs like Aid/ Virtue/ regular heal pots
              • Let’s say you have to run through a trap. You need every advantage you can get. And those pots will stack with the other collectors’ versions of them. 

 

  • On the Subject of Gear: 

 

        • Named loot in quests are not a secret. Know what you want and go after it. 
          • If you know you need a feather falling item and haven’t found one yet, you know where the low-level items are. Go get one! 
        • It is a waste of money to use the DDO Store here. 
          • Get creative. Don’t ask me how many times I ran The Den of Kobold Brothers to find a Muck Bane. Use the tools available and figure out how to get what you need on the cheap. The rest is up to luck. I’d hate to see you spend a few hundred points on a character in XP pots and other things only to have that character die at level 12. Not worth it! The one exception to this is if you are planning a quest and need a rogue. 30 points on a rogue might be worth it here but you should have earned that much just by playing already. 

 

  • Let’s talk about crafting. 

 

        • My advice: Know what you want going in. DO YOUR RESEARCH so you know what to save in the way of collectibles. 
            • Sell all the gear you aren’t going to use in Korthos to build a little capital for yourself and then start breaking down gear every 3rd quest or so when you get to Stormreach. You will get crafting XP and a little money each time you break things down. As soon as you have access to your bank, fill it and your inventory with stuff to break down. 
              • Do the crafting tutorial before you go to break down your gear for the first time. This will give you a decent jump start in crafting levels and you as you will see by the planner, you need to be level 20-40 in crafting to make anything remotely sexy. 
          • Yes you can and should do Cannith challenges at low levels. 
            • You can get 20% miss chance bracers at level 3 “Bracers of the Wind” and it really isn’t difficult. (The challenges you need for this are very straightforward.) You are level 3 or 4 but so are the mobs. 
          • LINK to my low-level guide to doing Kobold Chaos at level 4
          • LINK to the guide for getting through Dr. Rushmore’s mansion (You will do “Behind the Door” to get what you need.) 
          • LINK placeholder for Lava Caves. Very easy and straightforward challenge. 
            • Any gear you get can grow with you as you get “Older”

 

  • Let’s talk about getting older. (really torn about sharing this advice) 

 

      • I get it, your a fledgling Hardcore player, your little body is going through changes but that doesn’t mean you need to keep putting yourself at risk. Here are the biggest mistakes I saw people making on the Hardcore Test Server: 
        • Going too fast. 
          • Don’t shy away from working through snowy Korthos and doing things at level. If you don’t develop your Hardcore Survival skills here, you are going to fall on your face when the training wheels come off. It’s ok to gather some gear and a few action points before you try to burn through Korthos on elite. 
            • I should not have to talk about this, yet people are still out there eating Tide Pods. I get it. You are in a hurry. But do you know what’s more time consuming than running a quest twice? Starting over at level 1. This is Darwinism. If you play foolishly, the game will weed you out. 
        • Lack of group communication 
          • When the rogue says “trap” or stops and types “trap”. Don’t go further. Let them do their thing. 
          • If you need a heal and your cleric isn’t with you, you are about to die. 
        • Lack of self sufficiency
          • Be your own anchor. Have your own heal pots/ resist pots and whatever else you might need. If you are in a group, great. But it is not their job to look out for you. Watch out for number one. Think about every quest before you step in. What kind of mobs are there? What will the casters throw at you? Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance, right? 
        • Overconfidence 
          • This is going to be easy! I’ve run these quests a thousand times before! And then that person dies at level 4-5 the first time they see a Kobold Shaman casting lightning bolt. I have also seen a lot of players dying between 8-10 when their character starts to grow and get a little more hardy. These guys tend to bite off more than they can handle. All I can say is… THANK YOU for getting out of my way on the leaderboard! 
            • If you are standing at a quest door and your clench factor of above seven. Step away. Do it on a lower difficulty. Come back to it later when you are bigger/ stronger. Or don’t. I’ll take your spot on the board. It’s fine. 
        • Failure to dodge. 
          • Not anticipating spells aimed at you and underestimating how hard a champion is going to hit you is a great way to get yourself killed. Do yourself a favor and get out of the way. Break line of sight so you can deal with the trash without interference from the archers. A little tactics go a long way. 
            • The fight comes to you. Not the other way around if you can help it. Take away a named bosses minions and suddenly they become easier to deal with. 
        • Know your role. 
          • If you are squishy. Be Squishy. If you are made of glass and you throw the first punch, expect Darwinism to kick in and take care of you. Let the tank be the tank. It’s why you let them into the party. 

Please stop asking me about static groups for this. I don’t plan on it at this point.  Good luck! Hope to see you out there! 

 

Know what you want and pursue it ruthlessly until you get it or someone hands you a restraining order.  – Lessah, Passive-Aggressive Paladin 

 

  • What we learned this week:
      • Lessah: I learned that I still got it. 
        • I would say u can get 5k before hitting 20- said someone who is obviously delusional. 
      • Myth: The elephants upstairs have moved on to new ground!! 
      • Sahba: Syd’s next life is going to be an Alchemist!!!

 

Rumors, News, and Lies 

 

 

  • Before we start!  Spoiler!!! 
    • Sanctuary
    • Travelers
    • Another Life
    • I’m ready! I watched Stranger Things.
    • The Boys is the show I never knew I wanted to see! 
    • Mythery and Lessah in the virtual Living Room.  
      • We need to get oculus tv for the living room. It’s free.

 

I suck I have nothing to talk about

 

  • Other games

 

  • 7DTD
    • Did I play? Yes but it was garage night, skipped (reaper babies), then last night.
    • Tunnel finished just need to pretty it up! Not sure I will ever find a nitrate mine. Might have to give up but at least we found a lead mine.
  • Tom Clancy Division 2
    • I am saving DC but it keeps getting in trouble. 
      • Myth and Sahba made WT5. woohoo!
      • I went to the Zoo. It was hard. There were animals there. 
  • I was looking at games and when I went to read the description of this one game this is what it said. Cancer is everyone’s business! Till 31st January 2019, 50% of revenues from all purchases for “In Between” will go directly to the Cancer Research Institute as donations, in order to support the battle against cancer.  That is very nice, providing it’s true and the game is only 12 bucks but what they want you to get is a bundle for over 250. Really what bugged me was how much I had to look for what the game was actually about. And even then it basically just said it was a puzzle game and boasted about the 25 songs in it. Huh? It wasn’t until I started reading the reviews that I found out what the game really was and even then… This was the first review I read. The liberal, subjective borderline emphasises and reactivates the collectivism. In order to re-consider this superficial conceptualisation and the signal of it’s performative and ornamental accumulation – which is de-centrally inconceivable – the art institution forces it’s poly-cultural thesis. The urbanistic continuity interweaves the boundary of occupancies. By the means of optionally circulated plots, a conclusion has been mystifyed marginally by transient membrane. The resonance to specify merges and demonstrates the integration. Really? This is a review? Some of these aren’t even complete sentences. And this person got the game for FREE! I read two more reviews where I found out that the game is about a man who has cancer and the game is about Elizabeth Kubler Ross’ On Death and Dying, 5 Stages of Grief. Hmm…maybe this is why they didn’t describe the game? Aren’t games supposed to be fun and happy or is it just me? I suppose it could be me, I had a strange week last week. Maybe I’m not straight yet. Anyway, this is when I went and finished up watching Stranger Things.

Damsels of DDO Episode 113, One Off Questing

The Damsels are three lady gamers who talk about things that are important to them in the world of Dungeons and Dragons Online. The Damsels recruited a bard this week to help out with a little one-off questing fun.  These are quests that stand alone as singular stories and may or may not fit in with a larger storyline or quest chain. It worked out great. Special thanks to Doug Glendower of Bard Life for coming along and making things easy! Thanks so much for listening!

 

The Damsels of DDO like Game Fly and Loot Crate!  It’s a fun way to spend your money if you’re interested in any of those products! Visit our website to find out more! DamselsofDDO.com.

Intro:  

The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Saturday, July 28th at the crack of midnight Eastern time. This is our 113th show.  

 

Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Myth corrects and Sahba sleeps

    • I had an idea for Doug’s show that in lew of a fashion show he should Yelp Review hirelings he used that day. On a scale of 1 to 5 stars. Rate the following: 
      • Did your hireling arrive on time? 
      • Did your hireling stay with you throughout the adventure? 
      • How satisfied were you with the quality of your hirelings work? 
      • So let’s do our favs: 
    • What we learned this week:
      • Lessah: I learned that a bard is a great addition to any party. 
      • Myth: I learned that I remember how to play Guild Wars and I like it! 
      • Sahba: Myth wants to play Fallout and thinks someone is stopping her. And, I already knew this, but my mind is gone! I had to write this down or I would have forgotten it.
