Damsels of DDO Episode 83, Stormcleave

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 went pugging again this episode! Our new LFM is the DDO Stream! We had a good time and ran some solid, classic quests that everyone knows like the back of their hand…or so we thought. Thank goodness the Damsels had a guide! Mythery got lost repeatedly and Lessah got inebriated! Fun times were had by all! This episode is called Stormcleave because we have done “The Tide Turns” already! Thanks so much for listening!

Intro:   

  • The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Sunday, February 4th 2AM Eastern. This is our 83rd show! And this is really the 83rd show. I checked.

 

Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Myth corrects and Sahba sleeps [zzzzz]:

    • We pugged last night and it was great! Thanks Kudesnik..I mean…nevermind.
    • Mythery and I are on our last life victory lap with the reaper babies.
      • It’s mostly me pushing to do all the quests. I want the +5 tome you get for 5000 favor.
      • Here is the conundrum; I don’t like TOEE. We need to do it.
    • Thank you to Fierce Fred for giving me the recipes I needed to make the snow elemental! I take back a few of the bad names I’ve called you. (he camped me in the tavern last night!)
    • What we learned this week:
      • Lessah: Never leave a bottle of interesting-looking liquor within reach of Lessah.
      • Myth: Stop trying to make me learn things!! I learned that Lessah puts hyphens where they don’t belong. Actually, I already knew that. hahahaha
      • Sahba:

 

Rumors, News, and Lies


  • Before we start!  Spoiler!!!
    • The Good Place
    • Riverdale
      • 1st two episodes.
        • This show is slowly being ruined for me…
    • Ru Paul’s Drag Race All Stars season 3
      • Episode 1, this season looks so good! So many of my favorite queens came back.
        • I cry every time Milk is on screen because he’s so damn handsome out of drag.
        • Ben Dela Creme, the terminally delightful queen. She really showed me who she was in the end.
      • Episode 2, Shangela the Mother of Dragons and John Snow Kennedy Davenport. I didn’t think Thorgy was going to win it but I enjoyed all that shade she threw on her way out.
    • I just started a new show but I’m not sure if it’s going to be any good yet. Counterpart – Starz

 

Wha…?

Last night we played our reaper babies and picked up some random souls along the way. The one I remember the best was Jaz. Jaz is full of energy and excitement and seems to know the quests pretty well but the main thing about him is his voice. More specifically his accent, he is from Baaaston. In my mind he is from the deep deep center of Boston, surrounded by only other people from Boston, and TV and radio are only broadcast by other people from Boston. Thus giving him this very deep bostonian swagger to his voice, devoid of Rs and a hint of kick assitude. I was only moderately disappointed that he never used the word wicked. At least I don’t think he did. Anyway, we finished the house D chain and finished up by doing Stormcleave. It was a lot of fun!

 

PS: Lessah was drunk. 🙂

 

Loot

 

The named items from the house D quests have something called unraveling enchantments. This means that the enchantments placed on the items have weakened over time and you can use the goat, lion, and dragon sigils to restore the items to their original powers. Behind the tower that houses the Tide Turns quest is a contraption called Visbane’s Folley where you place the item and the chosen sigil in order to restore it. Norbert Visbane will teleport you there is you are too lazy to walk and have completed the Tide Turns. AND if you are too lazy to get them by doing the quests, the sigils can be purchased from Visbane’s Folly for 15 astral shards.

Damsels of DDO Episode 82, Raids, Reapers, and Pirates! Oh My!

The Damsels are three lady gamers who talk about things that are important to them in the world of Dungeons and Dragons Online. We went looking for other players this week in order to do the Chronoscope on reaper mode. Also, we tried to kill Draculetta using zombie pirates. It worked a few times! Thanks so much for listening!

Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Myth corrects and Sahba sleeps [zzzzz]:

    • So here’s what happened. I can’t count.
      • Myth! We forgot to do the forgotten caverns.
    • What we learned this week:
      • Lessah: Never let Sahba get to the quest first.
        • Never say things like “we haven’t seen a reaper yet”
      • Myth: I learned that Brad is alive!
      • Sahba: Always get to the quest first.

 

Rumors, News, and Lies

 

 

Reaper Babies and a vampire

Draculetta likes to talk about things he doesn’t like to do on his podcast. It is our sworn duty to show him how wonderful those things are and thereby enriching his gaming experience and as a result his life. Therefore, when he declared that he did not like doing reaper quests we were obligated to take him through several.  We did the Chronoscope. We’ve already talked about that so I just want to say that it was a ton of fun and we pick up some hitchhikers along the way. No Bob blessed us with his presence. Plus we had a Bard! Bard buffs are the best! Then we went to House D looking for some pirates to tangle with. First we went to an odd place in the Searing Heights called the Bargain Bazaar? Blood Bazaar? Something… I thought it was going to be like an outdoor mall but on the way over Lessah said it was where they sell people. Crazy, right? I don’t know, she might have been right. All I know is that whatever was going on there it wasn’t good. We cleaned that place out though. And the guy running the place, it was a kobold riding a minotaur. Some weird stuff going on here.

Next we went to the Black Loch. Mostly what I remember about this place is……DON’T LOOK AT THE WATER! I try to stay out of the water since it puts out fire and I pretty much just burned up everything I came in contact with. Sooooo Drac, what’s so bad about reaper quests? It looked like you were having fun to me.

Intro:   

  • The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Sunday, August 20th at 2AM Eastern. This is our 74th show!

 

Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Myth corrects and Sahba sleeps [zzzzz]:

    • Sahba’s guildies are sending me manuscripts in the mail.
      • Martel and the Pit Restart guide. I’m being trolled when not online.
    • Thanks Fierce Fred for sending me a big stack of Gems of the Ocean Winds!
    • We pugged last night!
    • What we learned this week:
      • Lessah: Gerard Dryden’s Mace works great on slimes
        • But what I really learned…I get to upload our show to the DDO You tube channel… I’m sorry, Cordovan.
      • Myth: Club of the holy flame has a minus to attack and damage because of the all the chicken meat still on it. (This weapon is less well made than normal. Giving a minus 1 penalty to attack and damage rolls)
      • Sahba: Microsoft, fix what you broke with the Merc Stealth keyboard
    • Paladins are awesome!

 

Rumors, News, and Lies

  • Reaper babies – still babies?

 

  • Before we start!  
    • Sahba says
    • People of Earth, please start watching this!
    • Book Recommendation!  
      • We Are Legion (Bobiverse Book 1)
    • Shadowhunters (Sahba says) OMG! Everyone is More or less back on their book plots.
      • I was very worried about Sebastian and I think there is a chance we might see him next season!
      • Issabelle and Rafael!!! Let the Fan Fiction begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      • Sarah Hyland as the new fairy queen? Do we like this?

 

    • Salvation – Lessah needs to watch this. It’s pretty good and we have nothing else to watch!
      • There are three hot guys in it and one of them is very very evil!!
      • It’s about a possible apocalypse and who doesn’t love a good apocalypse?!?
      • Did I mention, there are three hot guys in it?

 

A Speedy Circus Recovery and a Dead Girl’s Spell Book

First I need to mention that all Reaper Baby rules are subject change at any time, for any reason. Example: if a quest is too annoying or boring or we just don’t like it for any reason we can do it on elite and forgo reaper level. This example is the new rule.

So, we did the circus chain in house P. Lessah put up a LFM and we got someone and by the time I got around to typing this I could only remember that his name started with an M but he was a favored soul that was part bard which was nich because he sung for us. Plus he did a really good job! He knew the quests really well and did things that helped, not the opposite. After the first quest we picked up another guy who, at first, we thought was probably Patrick since his name was Shamtastic. After playing for a bit we decided it wasn’t but you gotta admit, the name does sound like something that would be Patrick. We sped through the circus quests pretty fast without any real problems. They even tried to win me a teddy bear but no one was strong enough. I didn’t have my wrist balloon and didn’t get lost once!

Next we did Valak’s Mausoleum, where a ghost asked us to locate her spell book for her. I think this quest is a lot of fun but it seems like it’s one of the ones that doesn’t get played very often.

 

Loot –

Valak’s Mausoleum – Rose Diamond

Loot from the Carnival quest chain can be upgraded by obtaining a scroll, shard, and seal for each item when doing the quests on epic levels. Since everything is low level (3-ish) and we are not talking about epic questing here these items have not been included.

Damsels of DDO Episode 71, It’s a Dwarf Thing

The Damsels are three lady gamers who talk about things that are important to them in the world of Dungeons and Dragons Online. What’s that you say? Do some more low-level reaper questing? Consider it done! Let me ask you this, do you even know who Red Tom even is? Does anyone? The Damsels found out all about Red Tom and whatever it is he wants inside The Troglodyte’s Get before skipping over to Delera’s Graveyard for part 1 of setting Delera free. (She died, right? Just checking…) Thanks so much for listening!

    • What do you watch while gaming?

 

Crushing it!

I am here to tell you that for tiny little baby kittens we pack a powerful punch! We did two quests in house K and all of TBC!! TBC is fun and everyone should go out there and find their way to those quests and do them! Right now! OK, maybe not right now but soon. Three things the troglodytes get; 1 a fireball to the face, 2 all of their eggs smashed, and 3 a Damsel party on their bones!

 

Loot –

These items drop from chests in the Three-Barrel Cove (heroic) wilderness adventure area.

These items have a chance of appearing in the end reward list of any of the Three-Barrel Cove (heroic) quests, except Guard Duty. Every third completion you will receive a complete list.

 

One small correction, Lessah and Mythery confused the name of “Prove your Worth” with “Scoundrel’s Run”. Feel free to email us about how angry that makes you! Links below!

The Damsels are three lady gamers who talk about things that are important to them in the world of Dungeons and Dragons Online. The trek through heroic reaper quests continues with the Sharn Syndicate. We really wish Sahba Jade would stop confessing all of our failures to the power gamers. Shame! Shame! Shame!

  • The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Sunday, June 25th at 2AM Eastern. This is our 70th show!

 

Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Myth corrects and Sahba sleeps [zzzzz]:

    • Sahba Jade is a genius. (Battle)
    • You might have noticed
    • Why won’t Drac pike off us in Reaper mode?
    • We completed level 4’s onto level 5’s! Mythery is taking negative XP pots!
    • Paladins are awesome!

 

 

  • Before we start!  
    • WW is crushing it at the box office.
    • RuPaul’s Drag Race – final four!
      • Sasha is going to be a great queen!

    • Shawdowhunters is back! And I am loving it! Magnus Bane tho

 

More Reaper Babies!

We did Irestone Inlet, two Tangleroot quests, and the Sharn Syndicate. This means we are done with level 4 quests and have completed about three of the level 5 quests. We still have about 40k until we have to take a level.

 

I keep hearing myself say “It’s been so long since I’ve done this quest” and I guess sometime it’s true but I think most of the time it’s just that I blow through them without giving them much thought. Suddenly I’m paying attention and thinking about them. Sheesh, I don’t recall Irestone being so challenging. Gotta love reaper mode!

 

Loot – I wasn’t even going to talk about the loot for Sharn Syndicate because I think it is an embarrassment for the level of that quest chain. After giving it a little more thought I decided I would say something even though I have not bothered to include a list of the items here. The items are account bound, ML 2, and are quite nice for a level 2 character with no gear. My suggestion is, if you are a level 2 character with no gear, you should go do this quest chain on normal and get these items while they are useful to you. It’s a level 4 quest chain so it would be like doing level 2 quests on elite. Although you might want to take some friends along. The Bookbinder Rescue and Come out and Slay will be challenging for a level 2. 🙂

Sooooo, after talking about it for the last hmm… well it seems like a long time. Lessah and I have finally TR’d, which makes us teeny tiny little babies. I feel like a miniature kitten. Not a regular kitten but a itty bitty smidgen of  kitten. We blew through Korthos. We did do all of it but it didn’t take long and then off we went to the Harbor to begin our foray into Reaper Mode. First, we have no gear. Neither of us has been 1 for more than a minute in the last ‘who knows when’ and certainly didn’t keep anything to wear. Second, I have two offensive spells. My fav level one, sonic blast, and magic missile. I’m not sure what Lessah is fighting with but what I am sure of is that it is not ghost touch. Something we do have are cookies! We have cookies, sun flasks, candy canes, ham, sea fog, jolly roger bombs, gems of ocean breeze, and probably some other things I can’t think of right now. Some of this we can’t use yet but some of it has been very useful! We also have a couple of giant rats that run around with us too. They are quite helpful.

OK, so we are 2 and ready to tackle level 2 quests. No sweat! We did them all so I need to just pike a few highlights I guess. I wish I could pick a favorite but I really loved them all! Reaper has added a little thrill to these quests that I think I really needed. Plus we were at level, had no gear, and for some reason didn’t think to get ship buffs. Yeah, and boy do ship buffs really make a difference! I guess the biggest challenge we had was Walk the Butcher’s Path. We didn’t finish the first time but we learned things. We learned that Lessah needed ghost touch, and if she killed the kobold shaman I could hug the reapers to death. We learned that if you run away the reapers will follow you. Old lessons are new again, like, clear the shrine first. It really can be important. When we went back the next day we had ship buffs and our rat friends and ran through without a problem, smooth as can be.

 

Loot – I wasn’t going to talk about loot yet and was going to wait until the chains we have started were completed but now that I have given it some thought I think some of the Korthos standard rewards deserve to be mentioned. If you have nothing (and we had nothing) some of those things are quite useful. I’m not going to list everything, just a few things.

Bargain of Blood – Reaper Mode

Soooooo, I just talked about this quest. Not last time but the time before, so Sahba picked it this time so I would have nothing to say tonight. It was a little different this time though. We actually did the quest AND was did it on Reaper mode. It was only one skull but I did learn a few things in there.

  1. Going slowly really does work sometimes. OK, I already knew this but it happens so infrequently I might have forgotten.
  2. Standing 15 – 20 feet above the person trying to kill you and throwing fireballs at them is a great idea. Fine, I knew this too but it makes a lot of sense in here.
  3. Don’t let Lessah near the lost souls if you actually need them. Shoulda known this. 🙂
  4. Take a healer because trying to heal yourself is stupid.
  5. It makes me happy that maybe now I can play my healers and be appreciated again.
  6. One skull isn’t really that hard but I did notice that one of the named guys was CR 48. The quest was level 22 and we were 21.

What are some of the real features of reaper mode?

  1. Monster damage up, player damage down.
  2. Self healing, keyword “self”, waaaaaaay down. 1 skull 40% less than normal, 4% less each skull to 4% at 10 skulls!!!! Wow!
  3. Killing an enemy may result in a lost soul being dropped. Consuming (dbl click on it) it will give back sp. It is 5(base quest level+3). Hirelings can’t use them. Bummer!
  4. There is a death timer. About 6 seconds and if you run away from you stone and rubber band the timer restarts.
  5. If you leave the instance you can NOT come back and no one else can come in either (no swapping out characters or adding a new player).
  6. You get full hp, sp, and ki when entering the dungeon but this isn’t like a rest. Ex: if you have death penalties you will still have them.
  7. CC spells don’t last as long.
  8. You cannot enter a quest if you are more than six levels over the base quest level.
  9. If you are an epic level character you cannot enter a heroic level quest.
  10. XP – There is extra xp given and there are a great many things that affect how much xp is given. Check the wiki.

A little about reapers.

  1. They look like wraiths.
  2. They all wear deathblock.
  3. Don’t bother with things like trip, grease, earthquake, or any other ground type effect.

 

Kinds of reapers.

 

  • Carnage Reaper
    • Hits like a truck. Even in low level reapers, carnage reaper may one-shot you.
    • Inflicts a vulnerability debuff of 20% more damage. Stacks up to 10 times.
    • Likes to engage in melee.
  • Famine Reaper
    • Casts various spells
    • Every 10 seconds, gains a stack of Doom Caster: This caster’s spells will hit harder and fail less.
    • Affects nearby characters with Reaper: Slowing Touch: The Reaper’s touch gnaws at your form, slowing your movement and preventing tumbling. Bestowed automatically when you enter Reaper’s melee range for 4 seconds. Combat log: -50% movement, -20 melee speed, -20 ranged speed
    • Will teleport to player if it loses line of sight for long.
  • Fear Reaper
    • Has an AoE stacking DoT effect (“Fear of Death”) that damages all characters until the reaper is destroyed.
    • Has a radius around him where “Fear of Death” doesn’t apply. So, anyone within the radius of the fear reaper is safe from the effect.
    • Doesn’t like to come close to the players. Usually stays in initial position, but would like to have line of sight.
    • Has a melee attack. Hits hard, but in line with champs.
  • Plague Reaper
    • Melee. Hits like the fear reaper, but he inflicts healing debuff. Basically, trying to heal the person hit by the plague reaper is useless.
    • Will teleport if player is too far.

Loot

There are three vendors to speak to about items. Each requires a different amount of reaper experience before they will talk to you,

A few of the items you could get are:

Cosmetics

  • Cosmetic eyes
  • Cosmetic wings
  • Reaperling creature companion

Items/Benefits

Notes

  • Each of these chances should increase in likelihood for each skull of reaper being played on.
  • Applies to static named items from quests. Crafted items or end rewards don’t have this benefit.

An item with Reaper bonus gains one of the following:
