Intro:   

  • The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Wednesday January 6th, 2015 at 11:00 PST. This is our 32nd show.
    • What do you do when you realize not everyone in your party can run Epic Challenges?
      • Have to be careful, even in Epic Challenges, you will get dinged for XP unless you are at level or above.
    • I did not do any Party Crashers this week…
    • Myth is a liar!  Last show she promised to level.
      • in her defense…I have found it harder to solo-level as a squishy
      • not in her defense…who says you have to solo???

 

  • Rumors and News
    • Festivult – Get anything good yet?
    • The Wolfpack runs the Hound and VoD

  • Before we start!  
    • Doctor Who
      • Thanks Cordovan for sending us the Dr. Who song/ video!
      • The Wedding of River Song
        • No spoilers for this one, but the Doctor is damn clever, finding loopholes in any situation.
      • The Widow and the Wardrobe
        • Another brilliant Christmas episode.  The widow picks the lock on the police call box and makes it look easy!  lols.  “Suddenly the last 900 years of time travel don’t seem so secure.”
        • Also, I felt like if we could see the Doctor as a kid, his room would have been decorated the way he did it for these kids.  Very cool!
      • A Town Called Mercy
        • Firstly, the Doctor looks amazing in a Stetson.  It pissed me off that episode where River shot his hat off his head.  I just never said that.
        • Second.  The old west/ 19th century Southern accents were GREAT. Those are hard to nail, even for people from the south, and I was really impressed.
        • Now we talk gun safety.  “Everyone who isn’t an American, drop your weapon..” because Amy was pointing and shooting everywhere on accident.  Seriously though, you can’t leave your finger on the trigger while you’re talking.  And never point a gun at anyone unless you intend to shoot them.  That’s just rude!
          • One last thing on that, about 25 people a year are injured due to “celebratory gunfire”.  Don’t do that.  That’s why fireworks were invented.
    • Anime – Free! Iwatobi Swim club has a dub on Crunchy Roll and it made me very happy to relive season one in English.
      • On a related note, my son is making me a graphic of the characters from this anime using M&M’s characters.

 

Amrath

Here’s the thing, I guess I kinda sorta remember something about leveling up to 21. But the thing about it is that I didn’t remember about it until someone said something about how I can’t get into the epic challenges if I’m only 20. So… we went to Amrath.

Weapons Shipment

OK! There is something very important to remember about this place, the place to which weapons are shipped. There is a girl in here and this girl is sort of erratic. I mean, she says she is there to pick up some weapons and she needs some help but then she runs really fast ahead and after that she sort of saunters down the hallway. And you better pay attention to her because if she gets herself killed you are going to get yourself booted out of that place. And there is no arguing the point either. Boom, out you go! I know this for a fact because that is what happened to us. It all happened very fast, so fast in fact that had I not just spent the last 5 minutes talking about it we could probably have not even mentioned it and no one would have noticed. So that happened. We killed waves and waves of mean guys, bad guys, and monsters. Out of three chests we got zero named loot. Just sayin.

Loot

Sins of Attrition

Sahba was hanging in Amrath long before Lessah and I got out there because Lessah and I were trying to figure out which thing we were going to make each other twist in our epic destiny twisty thing. While Sahba was there we talked to a guy named Wakhakwi and he told her some convoluted story about about a citadel where some of the devil army Brigadiers had made their home. He also said this is the place where they bring troops they have found to be disloyal to punish them. He said he wanted us to kill one of the Brigadiers and he didn’t even care which one. It all sounded pretty strange to me. I mean, why just one and why doesn’t it matter which one? I still don’t get it but this place was near the place where the weapons came in so we went over there and killed one guy. Well, I say guy but it was really an Orthon and I say we but it is more like the royal form of we since I didn’t really kill much of anything in either of these places. I did give everything I could a great big hug and tossed some boulders at them. Sorcbarian for the win! OK, for the fun!

Loot

 

Wrath of the Flame

Another thing Sahba heard about while she was waiting for us to show up was that there was an adventurer’s camp over near the hall of the Third Legion where the adventurer’s were getting attacked by the Silver Flame. Lessah said she didn’t believe it and Sahba said “Let’s go over there and find out!” so off we went.  I have to say it certainly looked like that’s what was going on. They had people (and other things) imprisoned under force fields and a lot of fighting was going on. Inquisitor Lightbringer was giving a rather disturbing speech when we arrived which caused us to get into a fight immediately. It was obvious that Lessah was very disturbed about what was going on and her conscious was giving her a tough time as she fought her Silver Flame buddies (who knew? heh heh). It wasn’t long before we realized that this wasn’t the Silver Flame at all but a clever disguise perpetrated by the succubus, Malicia, and her group of spies. After we had plowed our way through the spies we came to a room with several Inquisitor Lightbringers held under force fields. I thought we were going to have a tough time finding the real one but Lessah managed to pick her out right away! We made short work of Malicia and the last of her spies. Oh, and I actually killed some things in here. Hey, a Sorcbarian can only give so many big hugs, then you gotta kill stuff.

Damsels of DDO Episode 31, Blown to Bits

The Damsels of DDO are a group of girl gamers who talk about things that are important to them in the world of Dungeons and Dragons Online.   This time around, we headed to House Cannith and got Blown to Bits while trying to blow up boxes.  Word to the wise, when something says “Extreme Challenge”, it’s not a joke, it’s an actual warning!  Thanks so much for listening!

Intro:   

  • The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Wednesday December 23rd, 2015 at 11:00 PST. This is our 31st show.  Welcome Patrick Shamgar!  Why didn’t you quest with us?  You roll XP dice on every server every week… aren’t you level 20 everywhere?
    • DDO went offline or something.  Was it the Star Wars Premiere that did it?
      • What did you do for that day DDO was offline?
        • I visited the forums…
    • Tips for Noobs!  
    • So..Party Crashers… that is a thing for me each week I guess?
      • New plan, keep everything!  I do not have enough “stuff” to upgrade even one item.  I’m starting to think this is a waste of time…
    • Myth promises to be level 21 by next show, and then she growled at me.  (I translated!)

            • Some Not complaining that LE is difficult (some say it’s easy), just ‘stupid’ with the mechanic of one-shotting
              • Would prefer better mechanics to make LE more difficult, such as Zuggtmoy fight in TOEE.  You can be one shot there but, if you pay attention, can avoid damage.
              • One shotting reduces build diversity?
            • Others think it’s fine as it seems more group play is needed.
          • My question – on first day, did these players take characters they’ve been ‘facerolling’ in other EEs into LE Raid and expect there to be no change?  Ok, so there’s one shotting.  How about using a real tank?  Not the 1000 HP 150 PRR character but one that is built to take the brunt of hits while DPS characters pound on the bad guys (and not all at once – perhaps use some tactics, CC, etc).

House Cannith

Power Play – Sahba said that, a few days ago she had snuck up behind an abashi to give him a ‘gut-ectomy’ and had broken her watch in the process. This had annoyed her so much that she went on to quickly disembowel several more abashi before leaving the area and by the time she got home her watch was in deplorable condition. She was on her way over to house Cannith to have it repaired and asked Lessah and I to come along with her to keep her company. I’m here to tell you, Lessah and I will never learn. I’m pretty sure we never made it to the watch shop but instead went into the manufactury. We wound up in a part of the place where the power crystals, which the artificers here use to get their magical energy from, are kept. It’s called the Power Works. When the Lord of Blades decided to take up residence here he disabled these crystals and somehow we were enlisted to get them back up and running. When we arrived we met a girl named Kylea and she said she could get them booted up if we would escort her and keep her safe. We took turns babysitting her and managed to get all of the crystals going again. There is a generous amount of shrines in here and the metal guys and their dogs were pretty easy to light up and fry.

Wolfinson’s Monocular EnhancerGoggles: Reconstruct — 1 Charges (Recharged/Day:1), Reconstruction +72, Search +10, Enhanced Search +5 [ML:18, BtA]

 

Blown to Bits – While we were in the Power Works, Lessah was whispering to me that she had heard about some bracers that some guy had made and left in a chest over in the Armament Storage Facility and she REALLY wanted them. I was all like, cool, let’s go grab ‘em. That’s when she told me the other thing she heard. Someone had said that this chest is in a big box that is under a force field and guarded by some sort of automated system. Well, that does sound like something in house Cannith but I think we can figure it out so I said, Let’s do it! So we get over there and of course things aren’t as simple as that. This guy, Marcus, tells us that he thinks the Lord of Blades (yes, him again) is trying to create an army of constructs. He said we can have whatever we find in there if we destroy all of the constructs stored there so the Lord of Blades can’t use them. Lessah was all over that! We went in and found a bunch of demolition charges and proceeded to blow things up! So much fun! After we completed our fiery mission we made our way to a room with a box under a forcefield. Which made us think her info was valid. So far so good. She interacted with the thing playing guardian and it dropped the forcefield. Now all we had to do was get into the box. Sahba said we should blow it up. I think Lessah was worried about the chest but she did it. It wouldn’t have mattered anyway because what was in the box was definitely NOT a chest. It was a BIG…ANGRY…iron golem. And this iron golem was different than any other iron golem than I had ever seen. He dropped demolition charges as he chased us around, trying to blow us up. It took a while and a LOT of running but we finally took him out and got to loot the chest. Which, by the way, was sitting off to the side and was never actually in the big box under the forcefield. The rumor was true too because Lessah got the bracers she was looking for so everything ended up great! I wonder if Sahba ever got her watch fixed?

Getting Inspired!

We did, Dream Conspiracy, Finding the Path, I Dream of Jeets, Mindsunder, The Shipwrecked Spy and Eye of the Titan. We also tried to do the Demon’s Den, talk about that in a few. I like Dream Conspiracy, there is just something about running around in the sewers that is satisfying. You can kill anything you want, make a big mess, pick up any shinies you find lying around, and no one cares! We did all of that and then went to a building down the street, I think it was supposed to be a church, and some creepy guy put us to sleep. When we woke up we were in a big room with a glowing ball that needed our protection for some reason. Someone said it was our will we were protecting but I have my doubts about that. We protected the ball and then we woke up back in the building again. I’m not sure but I think we were drugged and it was all just a weird mass dream. I think what happened next just goes to proved my point because we were running around inside the head of that guy that found us washed up on the beach when we first got here, or more specifically his dreams. While I am a little offended about being drugged without my permission, I did enjoy this romp in the mind of Jeets quite a bit. I like the way you have to go in the back here to get into another place and so on and if you don’t you don’t get those chests. You can’t fail the quest like that, you just won’t get the optionals. It’s cool. I think we were successful in whatever we were doing in there because we were allowed to escape and move on to another building. This place is supposed to house a large artifact that is being used to to convert the citizens into mindless idiots, I mean followers. We destroyed the thing but here’s my problem with the whole, there’s a big rock controlling people thing. Have you seen these people? Put on some True Seeing and take a look! There is a big slug thing attached to their heads! If you ask me, that is more of a problem then some rock spinning around in a building down the street. Maybe it’s sending out signals or something and the slug is the receiver? If that’s the case it seems to me that there is a more efficient way to accomplish the evil deed. I know I have something smartassed to say about Shipwrecked Spy but since it has literally been years since I have been here and the fact that went afk at the start and missed the first part I don’t really remember what it was. I never really cared for this quest for some reason but the only thing I can recall that annoyed me was from my cleric’s point of view. If you are an actual healer, I know, I’m talking to something like five people now, but if you are and if you are trying to heal people at the start of this quest while everyone is fighting on the boat and the dock it is a huge lesson in frustration. Someone can be standing right next to you and they are blocked when you try to throw a heal and there will be a post ankle high. Grrr terrible, just terrible. I don’t think I was paying much attention in here actually but I know we got some crests, went in a cave and found piles of gold and two chests, went to an encampment and boom done!

Then we did the Eye of the Titan. I really want to like this. I have tried to like it. I think one reason I don’t is because I have to do it. It’s the only way to get to the island which means I have done it many times. I have done it many times alone which bring up the second reason I don’t like it. I always seem to run out of mana before I kill everything and that shrine pops. That probably would happen is I was on normal or even hard but this is one quest that I want to do on elite because I only want to do it once and I was the favor and I’m stubborn. With the three of us I hardly used any and it went very quickly. Yay. The story is kinda cool though so everyone should go do it and read the story, you know, read the stuff the guy you are talking to is saying. See, I’m not always going to be around to tell you the story and then what are you gonna do? Heck, I could be lying about the stories, just making it up as I go and if you never read it for yourself you will never know! Lessah and Sahba won’t tell you. Hahahahahahaha!

OK, so there is this quest called Demon’s Den and apparently it is one of those quests where elite is very different than normal and hard. Who knew? Mari knew but she is trying to kill us anyway so she didn’t warn us. Lessah tried to warn us but she had only done elite so she didn’t know there was a difference and we just thought she was being a fraidy cat paladin. Sorry for anyone who is just reading this and not planning to listen to the podcast but I guess that’s your punishment because I know there will be much talk on this subject and all I am going to say here is, we didn’t finish.

 

Loot

Finding the Path (killing the rust monster), I Dream of Jeets (killing the damsel) Eye of the Titan (end clam chest) have a chance of dropping the Xachosian Eardweller. You need to be ready to smash it to death if you see it. It kind of looks like a worm and if it gets away you are SOL.

Mindsunder – All named loot comes from the optional chest at the end. All ML18 and bound to account.

More Highroad

Rest Stop

We were roaming around in a broken down old building when we found out it was a castle…or used to be. There was a lot of people around and most of them seemed oblivious to everything going on around them. We spent most of our time chasing a mage around the place and every time we would catch up he would stick a stave into the ground and poof out. Also, this guy was poofing around with a big chest. We destroyed his staves, killed him and looted his chest. I don’t know why he was toting that thing around, there wasn’t anything very interesting in it. We grabbed the piece of Nether scroll we found and took off. Oh, and everywhere we went I seemed to be getting eaten by rats!

Stay at the Inn

I guess Oriphuan was handing out bits of Nether scroll to everyone because he gave a piece to the bartender at the Old Man’s Face Inn. Which, by the way, has a picture of a draught beer on it and not the face of an old man. Go figure. We went to the inn where we found the innkeeper, surprise! I think he gave us a key and then told us not to look at anything. We went out to the barn and… Did we look? Lessah? Really, is he stupid or what? Finally we went to the bar, which has a big shiny chest behind it. Above the chest was a cork board. Pretty sure that’s where the barkeeper put the scrap of scroll. I didn’t get anything cool out of that chest either.

Lost in the Swamp

Last of all we went to a swamp and in the swamp we met Kyle or we looked for Kyle and then met Kyle’s ghost. A person can do a lot of swimming in there for absolutely no reason or at least no profit. I kind of liked the swamp better than you would think. The thing I liked the least was the amount of nasty wisps in there. Waaaay in the back we found a medusa and chopped her head off. Have you ever noticed that all medusas are female? How do they reproduce? Maybe they are like paramecium? Then we had to make Sahba jump up on some posts and undo traps so we could loot another chest. She was being ornery though because she fell off and I had to step in the traps anyway. Bad rogue! On the way out there was another chest and someone said there was some good loot to get out of here. I just want to know… where? Where? Where?

This is the actual lock screen for Lessah’s phone. If you have not seen Psycho Pass, what are you doing with your life?!

Detour

We went to the High Road. Why is it named the High Road? It doesn’t exactly look high to me. I didn’t really see any big mountains either. I think whoever has the job of naming streets over here in Eveningstar needs to put a little more thought into it. Like, the Lazy Harper Road or the Fraidy Cat Harper Road. Those seem a little more appropriate for that place. So anyway, we went and met up with one of the afore mentioned lazy harpers or maybe he was just a fraidy cat, I’m not really sure but we had to escort him to a farmhouse so he could hide a fragment of the Nether Scroll he found in there and every time he decided he would help us a little bit (a very little bit) his hold spell worked beautifully. So, I’m sure the rest of his spells would have packed a punch as well.

We were told that when we got to the farmhouse there would be a wizard there to help with this powerfully magicked piece of scroll. I guess you have to do something special to hide something like this. When we got there he was there but helping us was about the last thing on his mind. We ended up having to kill this dude and his pets too. Honestly, I don’t think we needed help to put this little scrap into a chest anyway. What were they thinking? I think the less people knowing about it the better. I guess it isn’t our problem anymore.

 

Loot

loot range from level 16 to 25

ML25: +7 Orb Bonus, †Random Spell Power 120, Spell Focus II, Spell Penetration III, Elemental Absorption 10%

Random Spell Power: Combustion, Corrosion, Glaciation, Impulse, or Magnetism.

ML25: Striding +30%, Ghostly, Dexterity +8, Insightful Dexterity +3

After that we went and barreled through the Multitude of Menace cuz Sahba wants some stuff from there and lo and behold she got one!! It was some kind of dagger and I’m sure she wants to tell us all about it. She was very very happy.

Fighting the end boss was easier than the encounters on the road. The High Road is my favorite quest chain in the Eveningstar.  So the next couple of gaming sessions are going to be fun for me.  We just have to make sure Myth doesn’t pull too many peeping tom acts while Sahba is a sneaking.

In the Belly of the Beast

Yesterday we ran into an old friend wandering around in Eveningstar, Rent, and decided to drag him into the belly of the beast with us. He said he had just gotten back into town after being away for six months! When we asked what he had been doing with his time he told us that he had been kidnapped by a necromancer and held captive in an underground crypt. He was bound in the room by a chain fastened to the floor and cuffed to his ankle and was guarded by a dozen zombie pigmen. After 4 days of being fed a diet of bruised apples, moldy bread and stagnant water he heard a loud commotion and shrill horrific squeals coming from the outer chamber. Suddenly, the door burst open and in a whirlwind that smelled of fresh cut grass and the sweet morning dew, a dire tiger appeared and rushed towards him. The tiger stopped before him, their faces inches apart. His teeth were bared and claws extended (the tiger not Rent) and as Rent slowly tried to inch his way backward from the large cat he tripped over the hook that fastened the chain to the floor. He fell backwards onto his bum, wondering if this was to be how it all ended. With one swift swipe of his paw the tiger broke the chain and giving it a tug pulled Rent to his feet. Rent quickly jumped on his back and rode the tiger out of the crypt and into the fresh morning air. They had traveled for what seemed like hours when they heard someone calling for help nearby. Rent looked around and saw a beautiful girl calling from a tower rising out of the woods to his left. The tiger turned to the sound of the girl’s voice and as they got closer they saw…Oh, sorry this is supposed to be about what we did in the Belly of the Beast.

Some girl, I think her name was Sonja or Sorina, something like that, told Sahbajade that the drow have this gladiatorial pit thing out in the Underdark somewhere and they are kidnapping Purple Dragon Knights and making them fight to the death, for fun. So, we went to the Underdark looking for the place. Two things, Lessah and I were the only ones to bring our “see in the dark” glasses AND Lessah and I were the only ones to bring our feather fall items. Well, we thought Sahba didn’t have one because she kept jumping off of things and dropping like a rock. But after being out there for a while and literally two jumps from being at our destination she decided to plunder around in that crowded backpack of hers and sure enough she had one. I think she was just showing off because when she falls from high places she takes no damage. Are halflings made from rubber? It was at those last two jumps when we realized that Rent didn’t have feather fall and that’s when she dug it out. It was actually very cute since she only had one, they shared it. Sahba jumped, gave it to Lessah, Lessah took it to Rent and Rent jumped. Rinse and repeat.

We obviously had a lot of fun getting there but now it was time to get down to business. First we put on out rawwwrrr faces, especially Lessah, so she could get us in past the gatekeeper. She intimidated the heck out of him. He was so afraid of her he was stuttering and the rest of us just rawrred ourselves right by him too. After we got in there, we talked to some guy who wanted us to kill his cousin and said he would reward us. Since his cousin was a slave master and we were probably going to kill him anyway it was a win win for us. Another guy, well Illithlid, offered Sahba a reward to steal a necklace. Piece o cake. Then we were offered a reward to kill said Illithlid. We placed a bet, I don’t think we ever got our payoff for that but suffice it to say, there was  lot of wheeling and dealing going on in there. We finally made it to the actual arena where we made yet another deal and managed to save the Purple Dragon Knights that were set to be next to fight and die. After they were safely out of harm’s way we revealed to the arena boss that we weren’t leaving and that our plan was to shut the place down. That’s when all hell broke loose. The floor broke out from beneath our feet and we found ourselves right in the middle of the arena but we were ready to fight and fight we did. Wave after wave of adversaries came for us. Dire bears, Yuan-ti Abominations, Drow, Drider, Illithlid, and near the end purple worms! We fought them all and we thought we had them beat then the biggest purple worm of all showed up. It was huge! And as we fought, one by one it swallowed us up.

OK, for those of you that don’t know, the inside of a worm is pretty much one long digestive tract. Therefore, we landed in a stream of ickiness and if that wasn’t bad enough, there were things! Things living in there! I think this worm swallows everything it sees. Lessah found a sword or maybe a piece of a sword. As we went along our merry way we found bits and pieces of said sword and just about the time Lessah said she had found them all and was piecing it back together, POP! I think we were pooped out, ‘cause out we were. All of this must have been really hard on the worm because it was a little less purple and a little more green as he swayed in front of us, almost dead. So we finished him off. It was the nice thing to do, of course.

Loot

There is no loot to speak of but this quest rocks and I want to do it again!! Who knew getting swallowed up whole by a giant purple worm would be so much fun!!!

Damsels of DDO Episode 26, Druid’s Deeper

The Damsels of DDO are a group of girl gamers who talk about things that are important to them in the world of Dungeons and Dragons Online.  This week we went back into druid territory and delved deeper into the woods.  What did we find?  Bears of course!  As it turns out, the things they do in the woods are pretty mundane compared to all the corruption going on with nature out there!  Thanks so much for listening!

Finished up Druid’s Deep

Thorn and Paw

We were asked to go to Thorngap and find a druid named Halsaime. Apparently he is the most famous druid in these parts and he is missing. The Harpers say he is tied to a mysterious primal corruption and to a missing Cormyrean noble. So we hopped on an ox cart and rode out to Thorngap.

When we got there the first thing I noticed was that there were dire bears held in some sort of natural cages that had to have been sealed by magic. Most of them seemed to be sleeping and didn’t even notice us. What did notice us were a great number of Vine Horrors, wolves, and some very evil nasty druids. As we got deeper in we found that this evil seemed to emanate from a node in the center of a clearing. Lessah went over to it and started beating on it until it burst and appeared to have died. That was when we realized that the dire bears that had been neatly tucked into their dirt and grass cages were no longer sleeping and no longer magically sealed in.

We continued making our way in, killing angry bears as we went, and then more vine horrors and wolves and evil druids until we came to another clearing with another node pulsating with evil. Lessah went and made quick work of it and of course we had another several groups of angry dire bears to deal with. At the edge of the glen we did find a druid but it was not Halsaime and this poor guy was severely injured and could hardly speak to us. Oh yeah, the whole time we were in there Sahbajade was picking up some weird glowing seeds. I don’t know what she did with them but I hope she doesn’t have them anymore.

The Druid’s Curse

When we got back from Thorngap and told the harpers that we didn’t find Halsaime they sent us right back. This time we were to search for him in a place called Druids Deep, the location of which is a big fat secret. And the only directions we got were “Be a fish, then a wolf, then a bear” and that it’s someplace near Thorngap. So off we went on the stinky ox cart again.

This place is hidden really well! Sahba bounced around being a wolf, I channeled my inner fish (who knew I had one), and Lessah reared up, growled a lot and did a good job being a bear. It was a long way to go but we found it!! We also found him. This guy might be the most famous druid around here but he was a lost cause and now he is just a memory of the most famous druid in Thorngap. Unfortunately so is the Cormyrean noble he probably kidnapped and who now stands like a statue in the middle of Druid’s Deep.

  • Rumors and News
    • DDO Cast turns 400 and will have a special show this weekend (not live).  Lessah put together a segment for it.  Check it out – well, check out the entire show.  Should be great!

        • WARNING!  Do not watch this unless you are prepared to cry.  This Anime made me feel an incredible amount of joy in addition to ripping my heart out, setting it on fire, stomping on it, and then shooting it into space while I watched.

 

More Gatekeeper patron quests – Devil’s Gambit

Tavern Brawl

ALERT ALERT! Those horrible awful green devils are trying to destroy the pocket dimension in which the Portable Hole resides and I can’t have that!! It’s the place where I can get some peace and quiet, a place where the mood is serene and positive, where the anvils and boulders of life float weightless and sparkle with stardust, a place where I can get away from all of the non magical aggressive jerks around here. Well, for the most part. Some sneak in here and more than a few of those book toting wizards are suspect but for the most part, a little oasis of peace and joy and the devils can’t have it!

That’s what I said anyway, so we immediately went to save my precious little tavern. When we got there we found that they were searching for something called the Transfinite Compass and even though managed to kick all of their butts out of there we didn’t come across any compass.

Grimm and Barret

Apparently the devils are on the prowl in several places, tearing apart things looking for some pieces of equipment, for what? The devils were in the harbor tearing apart the Gatekeeper’s Hostel looking for the Planer Awl. We began our little investigation of the place, with help from some of the hostel’s residents – Grimm, a cute fat rat and Barret, a giant but cuddly dire bear, and Volf the wolf. We wiped the place clean of undesirables and never did come across the Awl. We have to assume that they absconded with it.

Loot

  • Docent of Insight: +5 Enhancement Bonus, Insightful Intelligence +2 Insightful Intelligence +2: This item focuses the power of the wearer’s mind granting a +2 insight bonus to Intelligence., Quality Armor Bonus +2, Quality Wizardry II (25 SP), Insightful Potency +5, Green Augment Slot
  • Ivy Helix (Ring): Enchantment Save +3, Illusion Save +3, Spell Save +3, Green Augment Slot
  • Laurel Helix (Ring): Sheltering +6, Fortification 100%,Protection +6, Green Augment Slot

Multitude of Menace

Next, we heard that the Devils had swarmed into the House Cannith Enclave searching for something called a Planar Containment Generator. We were on a mission now so off we went to House C. Once we got there we were told to enter the magewright’s hall where we began our search.      For the most part it seemed that we spent our time chasing a tiefling guy named Carver and we killed him over and over and over. OK, not really, but he was able to make multiple copies of himself and the more we killed the more he made. Ultimately we got the best of him but we didn’t even see a hint of any generator. They must have found it and taken it away before we arrived.

Subversion

The Twelve have a super special, super secret warehouse where they store super scary magic items too dangerous to be exposed to the public so of course the Devils broke into this warehouse in their search for an item called the Eldritch Attractor. First, I would like to point out that every place we went tonight, we were just in time to see Harry on his way out and the Twelve was no exception. We fought a little bit of everything in here, abshi, warforged titans, orthons, and crazed cultists to name a few, but the oddest thing we saw were some really weird aberrations called Slaad, that look like big toads. Weird. We killed them too.

Loot

 

Aretrekos is a rock star. Seriously, Stormreach cannot get enough of him!

HA, they were all great! 🙂

Don’t Drink the Water

One minute we were hanging out in the square in Eveningstar and the next I was being lowered into a well! Apparently something or someone was poisoning the main water supply and we got voted in to remedy the situation. That place made my eyes burn and I’m not sure I want to drink that water even after this problem is fixed. Periodically, as we made our way through the caverns we would run into a blue barrier and were forced to fight a bunch of snake people. I think they are called Yuan-ti Abominations, they are pretty mean and kinda resistant to fire. I’m never really happy about that. When we finally reached the end we met Tharmalos, a big green dragon. He thought he was gonna eat us but he wasn’t a match for us. BAM!

Loot-  for killing Tharmalos (Green Dragon) at the end – Chance of random commendation and Flawless Green DragonScale

 

Outbreak

A strange new disease has overtaken the Eveningstar War Hospital. We never really figured out what it was exactly but Lessah was very good at making everyone all better. We fought  Red Musk Zombies, then Vine Horrors and worst of all Primal Wisps.

Overgrowth

Strange reports suggest something has gone wrong in the home of the ranger Peron Uthe. The Uthe family has resided in this stately house for generations, every one of them a ranger or warden of the woods. In case you can’t tell, I copies that from the wiki. Mostly we just followed this ranger dude through his house until we got into the basement which was overgrown and pretty much looked like outside instead of inside. We pissed off a dryad and killed her tree. I hope things are back to normal for the Uthe family now.

Intro:   

  • The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Jul 22, 2015, 9 PDT. This is our 21st show.
    • Welcome, Chai
      • How long have I/ we known you?
      • True or false, you are the most hated forums poster in DDO?
      • What color is your windowless van?
    • Epic Completionist?  Going well?
    • Someone kept telling me in the chat, “stand to the side Lessah! Don’t wade into the middle of the fight!”
    • Random tells from viewers… the DDO Stream equivalent of photobombing.  🙁  *all the cries*
    • I can play with Mythery again!  All my goals on Cannith have been accomplished.  50,000 ingredients.  The experiment continues.  More on this later when I start leveling.

 

Rumors and News

        • Lessah gets around

 

  • GenCon – what’s a LARP and how does Lessah dress when LARPing

 

    • Forums
      • The Damsels aren’t the ‘typical’ DDO player or are we??
        • What does ‘steamroll’ content mean?
    • Prediction – Pausing bravery bonus won’t help grouping, except maybe for raids (Nah, raids fill fine on Normal and Hard so I don’t see it.). Forum topic about times pausing bravery bonus would make sense:
      • Soloing Running with the Devils as a palemaster
      • Joining a raid you really want to do
      • Doing a quest you can’t do solo on elite; Times when forced to solo and either can’t or don’t want to take on a dungeon on elite, yet want to run something you haven’t run

      • The necro rat quest
      • Preserve BB for next life when you reach a point you can’t maintain it with quests available
      • Running with Guild/Friends who do not run at a BB setting
    • Mythery is from outer space – more on this later
    • U27 on Lamannia again – getting closer to going live, which means the DDOCast scavenger hunt is almost over.  Send in your submissions before U27 goes live.

 

  • Before we start!  
    • Dr. Who Talk.  SOME GREAT EPISODES!!!!
        • Martha Jones:  “It’s like when you fancy someone and they don’t even know you exist.”
        • Jack Harkness:  “you too huh?”
      • The Master, First contact gets taken over by America when GB’s Prime Minister has already established a relationship… really?  REALLY?!
          • The best things about the Christmas Episode “Voyage of the Damned” otherwise known as “Kylie Minogue jumps into the eye of Mordor with Cyborg Smegal”:
            • The Doctor as a house elf
            • The Face of Beau?!
            • The WTF moment.
            • First class degree in Earthonomics

    • OITNB?  Anyone?
      • Favorite character?
      • Favorite storyline?
    • Durarara
      • What the F?! The first episode has a girl getting put in a van.  Just happens to be Chai’s favorite saying. “Get in the van.”  A guy shows up to school to say, “I’m not going to school anymore!”
      • This show is kinda dark and serious, but I’m still watching.
      • Theme is really cool.  I found a cover in English!

 

Spiders! And Lessah’s new love interest – Driders!

The Demonweb!

We decided to run around in the demonweb, just for the heck of it. I wanted to prove to the rest of them that those webs aren’t sticky. Not at all!! Sorry, but I just think that’s weird. And speaking of spiders, the freaking spiders out there jumped all over me! It didn’t seem to matter where we were of who I was standing next to, they always jumped on me! So, we’re out there hopping from web to web and Sahba starts telling us a story about these arcane orbs that are in the demonweb some place and how they are being used to suppress the power of the Thread of the Weave. I’m pretty sure she was looking for them and just didn’t want to tell us until it was too late for us to object. Then Chai starts telling us how he knows the Thread of the Weave and it’s some girl named Ana. I seem to remember meeting her in some old temple out in the King’s Forest. Anyway, he keeps talking about her and how he’s saved her repeatedly and now he has to do it again. I think I heard him say something about putting a collar around that pretty little neck of hers but I had stopped really listening by this point. I think he has a little crush on her cuz I heard him singing this strange little sad love song about her. Yeah, he’s smitten. Well, I didn’t see Ana while we were out there but somehow Sahba did manage lead us to all of the orbs. I knew it!

Worst part about this quest, getting lost in the Demon web or Jumping and jumping and jumping.

Intro:  

Here is the questing we did!  IN case you missed it, VON 1-4 on Epic Elite, was great fun!

The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Jul 15, 2015, 11 PDT. This is our 20th show.

    • Guess who’s back?  LESSAH AND HER BARNACLED BUCKLER!!!  Level 24!!!  I tore the door off of a tavern and now I’m using that as a shield.
    • Sahba Jade’s blog gushes about Lessah, stop what you are doing and go read it!
    • Where have I been?  Welp…that challenge gear ain’t gonna get itself!  (PD Halls of Valhalla, ran Cove until dawn broke on the last day.  Thank you Narc for some amazing runs!)
    • Now running Epic challenges, but the same questions keep popping into my head…
      • How did Dr. Rushmore get Mistress Temptia to be his girlfriend?  She is a succubus, the concept of fidelity and relationships should be foreign to her.
      • About Crystal the Giant and Dr Rushmore…  they have some great damage reduction/ buffs/ dedicated healers in the form of elementals.  I am really growing concerned because when I try to fight them without Zeal or Holy Sword on, I can’t get the DPS high enough to do it.  (This is significant because before the paladin pass I was content to be an aggro magnet and have someone else kill the thing.  Now that I can actually contribute meaningfully to the kill count and handle things on my own, I don’t want that taken away from me.  Is this really such a game breaker that I deal damage?  (Jack Jibbers example)
        • Everyone is playing Warlocks anyway.  Turbine, please concentrate on other things and leave my paladin alone!  (What if this kinds ruins it for me?)

 

Rumors and News

  • Lessah on DDO Cast
  •  POV on PBS – web junkie
  • Internet addiction now a national health crisis in China
  • obsessive gamers who prefer the virtual world over the real one
  • Forum:
  • xp changes
  • The Flawless bonus to experience now only counts your character’s deaths instead of the entire party. This means if you invite someone less familiar with the content to your group and they die you won’t lose your XP bonus unless you also die.
  • Henchman deaths no longer reduce the flawless XP penalty.
  • There is now an NPC in the Hall of Heroes that will suppress your Bravery Streak and associated bonuses. While suppressed you can go off and do content on lower difficulties without ruining your streak. This allows you to group with friends, or join pick up groups, or even do new content on lower difficulty settings without ruining your bravery streak. Note that while suppressed bravery streaks are not ended, but you don’t get associated bravery bonuses.
  • We are working on an additional DDO bonus days event that will award a percentage bonus on completion XP for each additional person in your dungeon group. This will not affect raids.

Getting the band back together.

(The Laughing Knives stages a comeback concert one night only in House Kundarak.)

One of their members is technically dead and one is totally bonkers, one is obsessed with violence, and the other is a madman trying to play God.

But this is all normal and this is how we got the band back together….

Lessah runs into Battlemaster Dirge of Karrnath hanging around outside Tharashk Arena and she says:

“Duuuude! Sup!”

and he starts whining about losing his sword. And Lessah is sort of nodding like she understands but I’m pretty sure she isn’t really listening to him. She starts asking him where the rest of the laughing knives are and how much she wants to see them again. He is still whining about his sword and is saying how he can’t think about anything else until he gets a replacement. He says he has found the perfect one but he can’t get into the arena to fight for it because he’s human. Lessah is patting him on the shoulder and telling him not to worry his pretty little head about it or something close to that when she turns around to Sahba and me and tells us that we should go and pick up this little sword for him. Go pick up a little sword!?!? What!? Apparently, it will easy (yes I said easy) for Sahba and I to get in and sneak Lessah in with us. So, we go in the building and as we are fighting our way to the actual arena we see this creepy dude off in a little alcove and he is calling to us trying to get us to come over and pay him for a password. He said it would be easier to get into the arena if we had the password. I was not interested in that and just started running down the hall. fortunately Sahba and Lessah followed me ‘cause I really didn’t want to tangle with that guy. When we finally did get to the door to get in it was pretty easy to bluff the kobold standing guard into letting us in. WOW! All I really have to say is, Battlemaster Dirge better enjoy this darn sword because I wasn’t sure we were going to make it out of that place in one piece.

Next we went to see about Mistress Orphne. What we found was horrifying! Someone had sent several assassins after her, their bodies were lying all around when we got there and Orphne was just sitting there with her eyes glazed over. Apparently someone had managed to lock her up inside her own head. We had to save her! So, into her head we went. Now, I bet if you walked into the place at that exact moment you would have seen our bodies lying on the floor amidst the assassins. Anyway, man, I thought my mind was a dangerous place. We had to battle beholders and charisma stealing spiders (I stayed away from them) all while we collected little things for her, like a dagger, a flower, a necklace, and a silver mirror. Then we had to fight a bunch of guys, including Mistress Orphne but in the end we freed her. That was so exhilarating we ran straight over to the jungle of Khyber to look for Veil.

It seems that Veil’s nemesis, the Inevitable, is searching for her and he is hot on her trail and she has no idea! We have to find her first and make sure she is safe. Here’s the thing, we are wandering around looking for Veil and we keep running into people from her tribe. Even though I tried to tell them that we were there to help those guys wouldn’t listen and there was a lot of them! So, even though we managed to kill the Inevitable and save Veil, we ended up having to kill all of her people too. Oh well.

Finally, we went looking for Haywire. So naturally we went to his foundry thinking he might be in his workshop, which he was but getting there proved to be quite a challenge. I just have two things to say about this… 1. Someone needs to call the Building and Safety Department on this guy and 2. What’s up with all of the FIREWALLS?!?? I’M THE CASTER! I THROW THE FIREWALLS. I’M NOT ACCUSTOMED TO FIGHTING IN SOMEONE ELSE’S FIREWALL AND I DON’T LIKE IT! That’s all. Thank you. 🙂

 

The best part of this, besides the great “come from behind win” feeling at the end of part 1, was having to loot the chest at the end and then run for our lives.

Out of the Laughing Knives, Dirge is the most do-able, I mean normal.

Here is the quest in all its glory for your viewing pleasure!

Intro:  

 

  • The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Jul 1, 2015, 11 PDT. This is our 19th show.  Welcome to the co-host of the DDO Players News, an all around great guy, and tonight an honorary Damsel, From Ravenloft, Draculetta!
    • Sahba Jade Therapy session.  (Drunk texting me!)
    • Sahba Has a little drider, does it have abs?
    • Parasitic Breastplate upgrade.  Is it worth it?
    • Wolf update!  We are level 18!  Myth’s dog Finn is kicking butt and taking names.
    • Was great seeing Drac’s wolf spit red fire from his mouth!
    • We leveled, I took fighter because I am more melee heavy, Myth took Druid again, Sahba took a nap.
  • LOTRO
    • Combat – can’t move while fighting
    • Leveling up – not as much choice
    • Maps
    • Wilderness not instanced – competing with people not in group (and myth couldn’t get her satchel)
    • Huge place (feels lonely if you are solo actually)
    • Visually stunning in places (not better than DDO)
    • Backpack – like the ability to rename pages
    • Crafting?
    • FTP vs VIP?
    • Favorite memory
  • Rumors and News
    • Crystal Cove starts tomorrow and runs through July 12th – we are there!!! What does Drac think of the Cove?
    • U27 in July – Shavarath
  • Before we start!  
    • Dr. Who Talk.  Spiderman?? Is the Doctor ever going to make out with Martha like I want him to???  (I feel guilty because I love Martha Jones but I still miss Jackie.)  When will I see Rory?  What about Jack Harkness?  I NEED HIM!  On that note, will there ever be a male companion?
    • Why Draculetta is ‘so done’ with the Vampire Diaries?
    • Public Apology!  I am READING Manga and watching Anime!  As it turns out, people actually listen to the show, because when you say something wrong, boy do they let you know it!
      • Sports Anime recommendation: Yowamushi Pedal.  I really enjoyed it!   You can watch it for free on Crunchyroll, you just have to put up with commercials!  It’s worth it to watch an 18 year old bodybuilder/ cyclist singing “Princess, Princess I love you, you’re my Princess, even with a spell to make you bigger.  You’re still my Princess.”  (Try not to hum along with the theme song, I dare you!)
    • Teen Wolf prediction:   MTV knows how to cast beautiful actors.
      • My prediction: This will be the second to last season.  It would be nice if they went to 100 episodes, but I think what they are doing is a little too “horror movie centric” for that.  I predict a full season this season and a short 6th.

 

Don’t like the Crucible you say?  LET’S DO IT!!!

OK, here is what happened. Sahba and I were having a little stroll over in Eveningstar one day and she says to me, you know Draculetta right? And I said yes I do. And she says, I heard him tell someone that he doesn’t like the crucible. And I’m all, no way. Really? And she is like, Yep! So I think we should take him in there. Now I was thinking that Sahba was creeping over to the dark side and quite honestly the thought made me giggle. Then I started thinking that maybe it was karma or something since I was promised that we were going to hang in Eveningstar all summer and do epics and Draculetta was making me go to gianthold again. I was mid-evil thought when I realized that Sahba was still talking and was saying how we can get him to like it if we show him how easy it can be. Oh well, so much for evil Sahba. I say that I think that’s a great idea!

So we manage to round up Draculetta and we drag him kicking and screaming into the crucible. First, Sahba runs him through the maze. I think she only got lost once. Good job Sahba! Then I showed him where the valve is to cut off the fan before going on the swim that would come later. Then Sahba took him through a room with a bunch of traps. We couldn’t see them after they went into the room but I was told it went well. There was a lot of screaming though. Then I tried to tell him how to handle picking the door that wasn’t trapped but for some reason Sahba kept telling him to pick the wrong door and he wasn’t listening to me so he almost got blown up a few times (rethinking evil Sahba) but he finally listened and we made it through there. Then Lessah took him on the swim, we battled a bunch of guys and got our chests. All in all it went pretty good and didn’t take too long. But when I looked over to see if Draculetta had enjoyed himself he was standing there, his fur sopping wet, with small little squeaky whimpering sounds coming out and I heard him saying, never again. I will never do that again. I guess Sahba is evil after all and karma’s a bitch.

For more information on this and other Gianthold quests check out Episode 10.

The Giant Hold never gets old for me.  There is fun, loot, challenging etc etc.  But I dislike the Crucible like everyone else who isn’t a full time rogue.

    • Did I hear someone say they wanted to get me a Mithral cloak of the bear?  No, me!
      • So… for 400/ 400/ 800/ 400 ingredients at level 15, then upgrade to 20 using the same amount), I can get +6 sheltering and +5 to combat mastery, and for all that, plus the cloak AGAIN.. (level 24…) I get 3 more points of sheltering and 1 combat mastery.  idek if this is worth the effort because Golden Lions (fire arena) comes very slowly.

Menace of the Underwear! (aka, the X-Drow slaves who want to take over the world, the Driders who look really hot from the waist up and the women who love them.)

The House of Rusted Blades

Matron Jyr Dun’Robar is one mean beeatch. So, we decided we better come up with a good plan to take her down and Sahba said we should go in, pretend like we were going to fight, all die, and then we would have plenty of time in our incorporeal form to look around and devise a firm cohesive plan. We do this. It wasn’t until much later that she confessed to us that she was stoned. At any rate, the plan worked because when we went back in to do our “official” version of the fight we came out victorious! Of course. After this fight we were ready to take on our real goal which was to run around and put goop on all of the weapons. I’m not really sure what this accomplished but we did it anyway. Then we rang a bell, killed some guys, and got the heck out of there. *POP*

 

 

Impossible Demands

I think our heads were spinning a bit from the fight with Mama Dun’Robar because we decided to backtrack and run this again. At least this time we knew we wouldn’t find Bette Middler out there. Sneaky sneaky, kill kill kill, axe the traps, kill. Bu by.

Loot – Really? Hmm…. check out episode 15. What!?!?! Ok fine! Someone deleted them. I’m not going to mention any names. Here is the one piece of loot…

Reign of Madness

Acute Delirium

I remember that Lessah was telling us how she had been in the Sleeping Spell Inn one night and she drank a bunch of beholders under the table. I’m not sure if that is true or not but we were all hanging around in the 12 with our pal Grimm when we spotted a guy sitting on a bench crying. No one was paying any attention to him and I felt sorry for him so I asked him what his major malfunction was. He just kept crying and waving his hands around in the general direction of the Inn sobbing something about his girlfriend and losing some scepter and opening a portal and I think she was mad at him about it. Something like that anyway. I patted him on the head and told him not to worry about it (actually I wanted to get a look at this scepter) and we all went and piled into the Inn. There weren’t any beholders in there, just a big mindflayer and a few minions. What happened next…. well I’m not exactly sure any of it really happened but I think we built an airship out of beds and bookcases, jumped into a giant beholders mouth (I guess there were beholders after all) and ended up retrieving said scepter. Well, Lessah did and then she gave it back to the bad guy. I really wasn’t looking forward to telling the poor guy about that but stuff happens.

The Sane Asylum

Yeah, I’m not so sure about this one either. I saw Durk. Night and Day were flesh renderers. We saved Fred and killed Nurse Ratchett. We weren’t there very long

 

 

The Lord of Stone

We went to Khyber. Why? To ask for help from the lord of stone I think we spend a lot of time asking for help from the oddest places). For those who don’t know, it’s very dark in Khyber. Lots of things wanted to kill us and this guy had a bunch of minion guarding doors on the way to him. I’m not sure who’s idea it was but we decided to collect some gems we found along the way and then give them to him like a bribe I guess but I’m pretty sure he never got them because Sahba said she was going to keep them for herself. When we finally got to him he said he would only help us if we passed some tests which basically amounted to killing more of his minions. Easy peasy.

 

 

The Lord of Eyes

Belashyrra is the Lord of Eyes. Remember when I said that Lessah gave the scepter back to the bad guy? This is who she gave it to. This guys diggs had the coolest elevators ever! We traveled up and down through the whole place taking down the beam barriers until we found him. Plus, the Lord of Stone and his little army actually did show up and help us! I never trust those dudes to come through.

      • “There’s no such thing as skill in video games. It’s always memorization. It’s the same in this game. Grinding out past lives lets people memorize quests. It’s the same with any game where people claim it takes “skill”.”
      • Cannith crafting: Is it useful at all?
    • Current designs for Warlock enhancements (basic info found here) available in the forums:
      • Tainted Scholar – wider variety of spells; enhancing Eldritch Blast

      • Soul Eater – nothing yet?

Orchard

Ghosts of Perdition – So, we talked to a guy named Bittney and he told us a story called the Legend of Glacial Abyss’ guardian. Basically it all takes place under something called the tree of woe. I’m not even sure we finished listening to the whole story before we took off in search of this tree. I think Lessah just had to pee. Inside this tree or under it i guess, was a vast expanse of frozen cavern after frozen cavern, one on top of the next and as we fought Cholthulzz the floor of the cavern we were in would break apart and we dropped down into the next. Eventually we beat the undead beholder into submission because apparently that’s just the way we are. Supposedly he is gonna help us when we finally get around to fighting the Abbot.

 

Inferno of the Damned – Lineya says some cultists have taken up residence in an abandoned temple in the orchard. I’m of the opinion that pretty much all of the abandoned temples are home to squatting cultists. I wanted to go check it out because I heard that there was some sort of thinny inside this place and there was a mirror hell realm of the original. How cool is that?!

We get there and sure enough, we bounced back and forth from Ebbron to hell and back again all through the place. Amazing! In the end we beat Cinnabun’s butt and he is supposed to help us too.

Three Barrel Cove

The Legend of Two-Toed Tobias

Laurent Chastel basically tells us the he heard a rumor about this guy, Tobias Warbuckle, who was sailing around with oodles and oodles of loot and he sank his boat near here somewhere. Laurent seemed to think that the rumors were just that, rumors. But we like loot!So we went looking for ole Two – Toed’s sunken ship.  And who found a ship? We did, that’s who. His crew had turned into a bunch of undead skeletons and Two-Toed was a big ole Wheep. Getting to him had been such an arduous journey that I was a little worried but unlike his men he went down pretty quickly.

 

Two piles of gold and no named loot that I know of.

Rackham’s Trial?  Prove Your Worth.

I think her name was Rosie or something like that but she was all “you should go over here and you need to take a left and go right and don’t sit down and blah blah blah”. I’m not sure why we followed her directions but we did. First we dodged some traps and then we climbed some ladders. These things are broken, you have to jump from ladder to ladder just to get to the top! Someone really needs to go in there and fix them. We went through a maze and climbed down some ropes then Lessad started talking about some men dancing together and one alone in the corner. I don’t know, that’s when I stopped paying attention. Sahba ran around in some fire traps and after that we all died. Lessad ate cake, or maybe everyone but me ate cake I’m not exactly sure (remember, I stopped paying attention a while back?).

 

Again, no named loot that I know of.
