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.

Intro:   

  • The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Sunday, September 3nd at 2AM Eastern. This is our 75th show!

 

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

    • Thank you Evennote for joining us!
    • I’ll bring the Elephant into the room first. APologies for the seriousness of the next five minutes.
      • I live in Houston. Flood waters came to within ½ mile of my house. It was terrifying. You never want to have a conversation with your spouse about the best way to get on your own roof. I put in a call, but Kal El was unavailable.
      • It sucks here right now but Gulf Coast residents are very resilient.
    • What we learned this week:
      • Lessah: In my area…Creeks empty into Reservoirs which empty into a Bayeux which goes to a larger body of water like…the Houston Ship Channel…that leads to the Gulf of Mexico.
        • At any time, if a dam or levee breaks upstream of your house…you are screwed.
        • This happened in Brazoria County, my home tome, the place where I learned to be me, graduated high school, where my brother still lives and can’t go home because the roads are still impassible. He told me today that he qualifies for FEMA assistance. I won’t lie, I cried.
      • Myth:
      • Sahba:
    • Barbarians are awesome when they are gnomes.

 

Rumors, News, and Lies

  • Reaper babies – played lately?
  • DDO Bonus Days – double crafting xp through Sep 4 (yeah for holiday weekends)
  • Ever wanted to change your alignment (in the game, obviously) – now is the time to do it – 20% off through Sep 7
    • Also select classes, supreme ability tomes and potions, PRR/MRR potions
  • So you can afford all that, double bonus points now through Sept 10, 11, 12?  Who knows? (it says 11 in the chronicle, 10 on the login screen, 12 on a splashscreen)
  • Last weekend for the 2nd Annual DDOcast Scavenger Hunt
  • Forums
  • Let’s talk classes – first up, Monk (I rolled an 8 on a d14 (online) – going alphabetically, that makes it a monk)

 

  • Before we start!  
    • Get to know your Damsel!
      • Evennote!
        • Your DDO history?
        • Your tabletop history?
        • Your favorite class?
    • The only thing I watched on TV was the hurricane.

 

    • 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?

 

What to do when you don’t know what to do with your guest

First, play with a marilith. Step 1. Have your friend kite a large snake-like thing with lots of arms holding knives around while you kill djinn and anything else that happens to pop up. Step 2. Repeat step 1 two more times. Step 3. Gang up on the marilith and kill it. Step 4. Take it’s loot. Your guest is sure to love this!

Next, get on an airship with a guy who will force you to jump off over open water somewhere and hope you don’t die. Swim under water until you find a crack in the ground and swim into it. What the heck, you aren’t doing anything else and you need to show your guest a good time. If you are lucky like us you will find several different places with very different terrain to take your guest under the water. We had snow covered mountains with snow wolves and snow giants. Lovely gardens with a multitude of undead creatures and a hot desert like place which mostly consisted of gnolls. All in all I think we were able to show our guest a good time without breaking our budget.There was plenty of XP to be had and quite a few chests to loot!

Damsels of DDO Episode 70, Sharn Syndicate

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! Thanks so much for listening!

Intro:   

  • 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. 🙂

Damsels of DDO Episode 51, Slave Pits of the Undercity

The Damsels of DDO are three lady gamers who talk about things that are important to them in the world of Dungeons and Dragons Online.  This week, we conquered some slave lords, sort of.  Really, we just ran around for twenty minutes looking for a lever, and Sahba Jade trolled us with a huge fire trap.  If the state of the Undercity is any indication of wealth, the slave lords need a new line of work. What are your overheads guys?  Thanks so much for listening!

Slave Pits of the Undercity

Drevok asked us to help collect Codex Pages and Mysterious Remnants. He said that one of the Codex Pages was being held hostage by a lady named Dame Gold, who won’t give it up until someone comes to deal with the slave lords that are annoying her. Since these pages and remnants are evil and need to be gathered up we agree to go into the slave pits and find this lady to see what we could do to fix this situation.

We found her in a place called the Forsaken Temple. With a name like that I’m not sure what she expected. She was hanging out with her advisor and a dude that makes all of her clothes (what a prima donna). We tried to get the page from her but Drevok was right, she wouldn’t give it up. Actually I think we could have talked her out of it but she didn’t want to lose face in front of her advisor since sending us to take care of the slavers that they allowed to make a base there was his idea. She said they were selling them off to the highest bidder and we should probably hurry.

 

OK, so what really happened was, we looked for slaves and levers. We found slaves, like more than 40 but the levers are like out in plain sight so they are really hard to find. And we had to look a lot! No one died, if you don’t count Sahba’s hire and we fought a bunch of rats, umberhulks, skeletons, and orcs or were they half orcs? Either way, their living conditions were deplorable! They are either really bad at the slave game or they don’t charge enough. The quest was fun and I am looking forward to doing the rest of them. Oh, and being a ranged ranger is not half bad.

The Fall of Truth

First I’ll say that we did a pretty good job. Sahba was the only one that really knew the quest and then there is the little thing about there only being three of us. I guess the Stormreaver seems like an OK dude but he is very easily swayed by outside influences. I didn’t really pay a lot of attention to the play because I was watching Sahba and trying to figure out why she was running against the wall we were standing by. But I think the Stormreaver and Brawnpitts were having a little argument because Brawnpitts didn’t want to do this play since he didn’t get paid for the last one and then he just left.The Reaver started trudging away too mumbling something about needing our help and I’m pretty sure he said he had an infestation of some sort. But I don’t really know, like I said, I wasn’t really paying much attention. Then the floor fell out from beneath our feet and I was thinking termites, he must have lots of termites! When we landed I saw that it was definitely not termites.

First we had to take out 3 giants and 3 weird looking dragons. They were paired up too. I don’t know what’s up with the dragons and giants in here but they really weren’t too hard to kill. Then we had to break a big crystal thing in the ceiling. A crazy looking skeletal dragon blew a bunch of balls at me and killed me. That sucked but Lessah did a great job of demolishing the crystal while Sahba was killing the little minions and trying to keep the dragon from blowing balls of pain at Lessah. Minions! Sheesh, what a pain. Once the crystal was broken the Stormreaver decided to make an appearance. I thought we were helping him not the other way around. But it didn’t really matter since as soon as he got there the weird dragon managed to dominate him (see, I told you he was easily swayed). So now there were two foes for them to deal with. I’m not sure exactly what happened since things are kind of dark and fuzzy after a person dies but it wasn’t too long before Sahba and Lessah joined me on the plane of the dead. I totally think we need to try this again. Next time at least Lessah and I will know what is going on and what we need to do.

Genesis Point

Last time, while we were roaming around in the battlefield we noticed a few buildings that we didn’t have time to investigate, so we decided to go back. On the way to Amrath we saw a couple of wolves playing ball. At least we thought they were playing ball but as we got closer we realized one was throwing red fireballs and the other seemed to be chasing them. It turned out to be Draculetta and Rent and they said they were practicing. Drac was practicing his aim and Rent was practicing his dodging ability. From the look of Rent’s scorched fur it seemed that Drac’s aim was pretty good but the fact that Rent was alive to talk about it proved that Rent did a darn good job dodging. We grabbed them both and took them into the battlefield with us. The first place we went was a called Genesis Point. When we got in there we ran into a guy who, I’m pretty sure though we were some other group because he quickly ran through a host of instructions and tasks we were to accomplish, we just went with it. What the heck, how bad could it be? It turns out that the place is an army base for the Devils. So, we released some prisoners, took out a few waves of soldiers consisting of devils, orthons, tieflings, trolls, and troglodytes. We roamed around in a maze which teleported us to another fight. Luckily we were able to open a portal and teleport ourselves back and finally we found a room that contained a grey pit fiend demon which we managed to kill pretty fast but his minions came in and swarmed around us. Lessah was barely able to get out of there with her life.

 

Loot –

 

Bastion of Power

Next we went to a fortress that everyone calls the Iron Maw. Last week we talked to a guy who told us that the Iron Maw had never been conquered even though the battle has raged on for eons. He said that there is a way in that no one has used in so many years it’s been forgotten and that “someone” could go in through there and then open the gate to the Demon Horde outside. That way the demons and the devils could duke it out, basically eradicating each other and then that same “someone” could just mop up the stragglers. That way no one, especially the devils, would know how the fall of the Iron Maw happened. I guess our collective name is “someone” because into the hole we went! Everything went pretty smoothly, even though Rent and Lessah tried to get themselves skewered a couple of times, but it would have been nice to know there was a little pit fiend and a marilith waiting for us in there. Sheesh! Not that it really mattered, we had a great time taking them all down. The Iron Maw has fallen!! Woohoo!

      • Turbine confirms layoffs (from gamesindustry.biz, among other places)
        • Move to free-to-play mobile development leads to cuts Turbine, the Boston studio best known for The Lord of the Rings Online, has confirmed it is cutting staff. “Turbine is transitioning into a free-to-play, mobile development studio, and as a result we are eliminating some positions,” parent company Warner Bros. told Kotaku. “The Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons and Dragons online games will continue to operate as they do now. Re-focusing and reducing the studio size was a difficult decision for the company, and we are grateful to all of the Turbine staff for their considerable contributions.” Warner Bros. did not specify how many employees were let go. Turbine was last hit with layoffs in October 2014 as part of “strategic alignment.”
        • Cordovan post: We do appreciate folks’ concerns about the well-being of the team; know that the team has read them.  As with previous business-related decision-making like this, we really can’t comment on personnel changes. We would like to reiterate the part from yesterday’s statement that DDO will continue operating as it is now. We’d add that no changes have been made to our development plans.
        • Chatter on forums about ‘maintenance mode’ with
          • one funny interaction:
            • People have been saying that for five years, not the last year
            • Yeah, but when it finally does happen, those people are so going to win the internets for finally being right.  *High Five*
          • And “There is a lot of content after 10 years so we can keep playing even if there is no longer any development.”

Two Toed Tobias  – Legend Revisited

I’m not talking about this quest or explaining it. I’m sure I did that already in a past episode. If you haven’t heard it I think you should do that right after you finish listening to this one. I’ll even do you a favor and not say which one it is so you can have the joy of going through all of them to find it. We only went there for one thing!

 

Loot –

The Cursed Blade of Jack Jibbers

Death isn’t always the end.

Once per rest, and while dead, use this item to raise yourself as a Cursed Wraith, gaining Undead traits. After one minute, death will reclaim you.

Can only be used while dead.

 

Search and Rescue

This little girl runs up to us and she’s all freaked out. She starts talking about how she and her friends were checking out a tomb and her friends got lost. I was about to ask her where her mommy was when I realized she wasn’t a little girl at all, she was a gnome. We told her we would go look for her friends and jumped on a wagon headed towards the tomb. We were lucky one was going in that direction!

It was a very nice tomb, pretty big and lit by these fancy orbs along the sides. Which of course we couldn’t resist smashing. Two of the orbs (one at each end) were different and had a little knob to turn on them. When we turned them a hidden door in the center opened. This tomb was a lot larger than we thought. As we made our way through the place there were lots of skeletons, wheeps, and even quels to deal with. If we thought that was to be the worst of it we had another think coming to us. Lessah was going a little ahead of us, using the face finding method to locate the traps for us. We had cleared the first two sections of the tomb and were headed for what kind of looked like a throne room when we heard “help help….umm guys, get in here”. Sahba and I reached the end of the hall only to find a barrier in front of us with Lessah on the other side. Sahba managed to attract the attention of most of the bad guys, bringing them up to the barrier and away from Lessah, while I figured out a way to get in there. This little process happened at least two more times while we were in there. And big is an understatement! This tomb leads to a palace of sorts and from what I hear, one of those paths we were wandering around on leads out into the underdark. I didn’t see it but I think we were near it because we had a fight which ended with us having a locked chest that I couldn’t knock and supposedly there is a locked chest near the underdark exit. And there were many more things besides undead to kill in there. There were slaad of all colors, driders, harpies, scorpions, mephits, bats, umberhulks, lizards, and even kobolds! Amazing and so much fun! Oh, and we did find the lost people.

 

Loot – These items all have Heroic versions

Drow Priestess right chest

Red Dragon end chest

 

Epic swim in the lava!  Was so scared, it was like being in ice!

The Shroud

We got our three wolfy friends cuz apparently we only have three friends and decided to run the Shroud!

Part 1, called the challenge of the waning moons, is where we take out all of the portals before the monsters and portal keeper can over run us. Everything went smoothly ie. no portal keepers.

Part 2, called the challenge of the new moons, is where we teleport into a maze and kill all of the trash before we take on the 4 bosses located in the center. We got the orc, fire, orthon, and knoll. I  don’t know about the rest of them since I was on fire but let me tell you, creeping cold does an awesome job on fire!!

Part 3, called the challenge of the waxing moons, is where we teleport into a locked room that has a lights on/out puzzle to solve which opens the door. This needs to be done in a timely manner because the killer wall will appear and begin to travel around and around. We smashed it and didn’t even see that bad ‘ol wall. Yay! Right before going in to part four there is a skeleton that will buy things from you if your backpack is too full and will repair your equipment if you have managed to get yourself killed so many times that you are naked. He charges a premium for his services so you might want to consider how badly you need repairs.

Part 4, called the challenge of the full moon, is where we first meet Harry. Harry has fire balls, the delayed blast kind I think and meteor swarm and he is not afraid to use them. Poor Renty went down in the first round and in the second round…well….let’s just say when I looked around there was only me, Lessah, and Dash. I managed to hang in there for two more rounds and then Lessah and Dash had to bring it home on their own. I think it took about four more rounds but they did it!! We cheered like crazy!

Part 5, called the challenge of the lost moon, is where Harry has a lot more hit points than when we last met and also the awful blades. First we take out the 4 bosses again and then tackle Harry. There are little pools in the 4 corners that will give back hit points and mana for a short time but it takes so long to get mana back that way we didn’t spend much time doing that, even though Lessah and Dash were the only ones that got to shrine in the last part. This went much better than part four, Harry went down pretty quickly and we barely had any blades come out. After completion four portal come up along the walls and each one will take you to a different part of the quest, so any chest you may have missed you can go back for. We did. All in all it was lots of fun and I, for one, want to do it again! Soon I hope!

 

Loot

So, now you have gathered whatever you need to make your greensteel blank from doing the keying quests, here is where you get the ingredients to make your blank into something awesome. If you plan to make items to wear you will need to cleanse everything after the first one or it will make you sick. The cleansing stone will be an end reward choice on each 20th trip through the raid. If you are making swords, you can use two at once without cleansing to one of them.

Part 1/2- Shards of power, small energy cells, and small ingredients. These items are used for  Tier one effects and are crafted by using the Altar of Invasion.

Part 3- Shards of great power, medium energy cells (possibly depleted), and medium ingredients. Depleted medium energy cells can be powered by combining them with a weapon with a listed value of +6 or higher in the Altar of Subjugation. This is also the altar used to add tier two effects.

Part 4/5- Shards of supreme power, high energy cells (possibly depleted), and large ingredients. Depleted high energy cells can be powered by combining them with a weapon with a listed value of +8 or higher in the Altar of Devastation. For some reason this doesn’t work with Thaumaturgy weapons. This is also the altar used to add tier three effects.

Wolfpack Shroud was one of the more fun things we have done with our wolves.  The come from behind win was the best part for me, and stepping on the puzzle with four paws instead of two feet was highly entertaining.  (And the most challenging!)  I really want to keep going and see where this wolf-stuffl leads!

    • THANK YOU SAHBA JADE!  
      • You know when you want to run a quest and you want a special weapon, and you just can’t get it, so you decide to make it and then when you go to make it, only you aren’t high enough crafting level to get it 100% and you don’t want to take chances on making the thing, because you only have one of some special ingredient… Only to find out that the special ingredient isn’t even in your bank anymore, and maybe it never was?  And so, you go begging to your buddies for that one THING via text messages, and then you go into the quest where it sometimes drops, only to have the person you were begging log on and try to it give to you..  I mean, we have all been there, right?   
    • The Epic Completionist trek continues!  The next time you see Lessah, she will be a ranger!  Look for my LFM and keep up!

        • This is a romance novel..it should be a hot-guy parade!  Instead, I get Jaime in nice clothes, Jaime with no shirt on for two seconds, and the occasional odd naked lady alongside a pregnant Claire…also not much action is going on behind closed doors, even though half the scenes are in a brothel.  Honestly, I’m getting more of a girl-porn buzz while watching Vikings.  Please tell me how this went from Semi-Supernatural romance novel to historical, political snooze-fest?  
        • What if…someone from this time period ended up going back.  I think we might get burned at the stake immediately!  

 

Wheloon Prison

 

Friends in Low Places

I am pretty much always up for something pretty and new to wear but I I have seriously been looking for a “pretty” new robe for at least the last six months, maybe more. Someone told me that there was a lady living over in Wheloon that makes some very pretty robes and I wanted to go check it out. I talked Lessah and Sahba into going with me and no I didn’t say it was for robe shopping (Sahba never would have come). So, I’m poking around town looking for this shop and I hear Lessah and Sahba arguing about something. I heard Lessah say something like “talk to all of them!!” and Sahba was arguing “I don’t want to talk to all of them. Just tell me who…” Naturally, I went over to see what was going on even though I knew it wouldn’t lead me to a pretty new robe.

Apparently there was something going on in the prison and one of them had managed to get us involved in straightening out the problem. The first thing we were supposed to do was go in and help some innocent people. We go in and I have to say….I’m really confused. I mean, I’ve never been to a prison before but my understanding is that the criminals are locked up in little cells, in a building, away from the “innocent” people. From what I am seeing, it seems like they just took a few neighborhoods and put a big wall around them and then shoved all of the bad guys in. So are we going in to save some people who didn’t move out fast enough? Or what? I sure hope the robe lady doesn’t live in here or I will have to pass on the robe shopping in Wheloon. We did find some people who needed saving in some drainage culverts. Honestly, why are they always in the most stinky place in the area? My shoes are ruined. Again.

A Lesson in Deception

OK, so our next task is to find out who the BMOC that thinks he can organize all of the little gangs (including stragglers) into one big gang. I have a suggestion, put these guys in a big building with tiny cells and this would be a much harder thing for the bad guy to do! Oh well. We end up in the warehouse district and after a bit we start hearing someone talking to us. Sort of just a voice on the air. And the voice is basically giving us instructions. I guess it’s true, on the inside they really do just want to get caught. We have to hurry to find them though because if we don’t the guy plans to begin killing off prisoners. That was a terrible thing since we had to make the decision not to help people on the way there that really needed our help. Getting caught is not all they will get when we find them.

The Netherese have a recruiting center, see little cells. I’m telling you, little cells. The place is huge and we went through the entire place. We destroyed their altars, played with a mimic, and in the end we killed General Marthir. While we may have put a large dent in their plans, this isn’t the end of it. We plan to come back and finish them off once and for all.

Epic Slayer!

 

The Ruins of Thunderholme

First we did the ruins of Thunderholme. For full XP you need to be between levels 20 and 33 and since you can only be up to level 30, that’s weird. There are two raids here, Fire on Thunder Peak and Temple of the Deathwyrm. Flagging for these raids is done in the slayer area by destroying Dagan the Death Knight and slaying the Cult of the Emissary, namely Sarva Bellistrae. After flagging you will be able to teleport to the raid entrance but I read that if you are going to the raid and have someone in your party that is already flagged who teleports directly to the raid the red named needed for flagging will not spawn. So if you plan to flag someone on the way there…The chest will be there so don’t think that is an indication the red named is around. We did pretty much the whole place. We skipped Sarva and her pals and the forge area, but I ended up getting around 80-90k. What about you guys?

 

Loot

There is some named loot that drops from the rares. All are ML 27 and BTC on equip:

Thunder Forged Loot using the Magma Forge – Briefly, weapons and armor can be crafted and upgraded by combining a variety of crafting ingredients. Base weapons are created by combining Commendations of Valor and Thunder Forged Dwarven Ingots and then can be upgraded to tiers 1, 2, and 3 (1 upgrade per tier) by using crafting ingredients obtained by doing the raids. Weapons start at ML 22 and increase by 2 per tier.  Armor is crafted by combining Commendations of Valor with Shadow Dragon Scales (ML 26) and can be upgraded using more Shadow Dragon Scales (ML 28).

Raid crafting ingredients:

 

The Orchard

I’m not sure how much XP I got out there because I was in the middle of getting my 3000 but I think Lessah and Sahba hit a goal so it was all good. We didn’t stay out there very long because they are a couple of babies that wanted to go to bed, like sleep is important or something. But! There is loot to talk about out here. Some very interesting loot I might add. So I went to look it up because I like to be accurate and … Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh there is soooooooooooooo much of it!!!! OK, all of it is ML 27 and can be taken to the Fountain of Necrotic Might combined with 120 epic tapestries and will open an augment slot. The primary can be yellow, blue, or red and the secondary can be green, orange, or purple (orange and purple are for weapons and shields only).

House K Quests and more!

First, a side note, our new mom, Myuniska, just let us run amok! Especially that Gnomercyjade girl. New mom needs to take the advanced cat herding class asap! Well, at least before she comes back.

 

OK, we went to House K and did the Ruined Halls, the Lair of Summoning, the Chamber of Insanity, and the Forgotten Caverns. What we learned while we were in these quest, besides the fact that they were really really easy for us and went as smoothly as possible, was that our barbarian is a miss priss who is afraid that she will break a nail if she swings her axe. So, being the good and kind Warlock that I am I threw fireballs at everything so she wouldn’t die or get any monster goop on her new clothes and what did she do? Complained. Yep, that’s right folks, no good deed goes unpunished. That’s OK, I kept helping anyway.

Next, we went to House D and did the depth quests. The Depths of Despair, the Depths of Darkness, the Depths of Doom, and the Depths of Discord. These quests were also incredibly easy which just gave us ample amounts of time to pick on each other (see, cat herding classes) where little miss Gnomercyjade suggested that Myuniska might consider getting a nose job and trying to do something about being so tall.

Finally, we ran Tangleroot until everyone was too tired to pick on each other and then we went to bed.

 

Loot

Out of the 12 quests we did (18 when Tangleroot is done) the Tangleroot Gorge chain is the only chain with named loot. There are 21 named items that have a possibility of dropping as an end reward.

      • He had no sound!  Boooooo!  I will be asking him back for the next Wolfish Meet-up!  
    • Wolf Pack update!  Where is the love?   
      • I have not played my wolf enough.  But seriously…I still need so many things on Lessah, I don’t have time for it all!

  • Before we start!  
    • Doctor Whooooooooooo!  Season 6 & 7 romp, Matt Smith continues!  
      • Dr Who (Matt Smith specifically) is great with children!  I went back over the episodes where he has to help or work with kids.  And he’s amazing with kids.  
        • Stormagedon for example.  Even baby River Song.  He speaks baby!  (This bow tie is cool)
        • The kids from the Christmas special.  
      • The Asylum of the Daleks, I guess Clara the Dalek passed the companion litmus test.  That ep itself was cool episode because of a room full of Daleks chanting Dr. Who.  If you
      • The ANgels take Manhattin was fantastic and also very sad…Amy and Rory… but he had to go so he could be Rip Hunter on Legends of Tomorrow, right?  
      • Season 7, Episode 8, Cold War, Frank on a Russian submarine.  I will never get tired of this line: “Sir, American aggression gets more intolerable by the day.”  It’s just as true now as it was in the 80’s.  
        • And now I MUST tell a “War Story”  I rarely do this, in order to hear my Army stories, you have to wait a while and know me, but here goes this one for the live-stream only!  Bosnia and Red Dawn.

      • Shadowhunters – I have four little words…

 

Ow ow owwwwwwwooooooo! Wolf pack went back to the Vale!!

We met up with a few of our wolfy friends, Rent-y, Drac-y, and the quiet one or is it the late one or maybe the sleepy one? At any rate is was Big Daddy! We had already done Running with the Devil’s and Ritual Sacrifice so off went doggie paddling to the Coalescence Chamber, we are soooo cute! I always wondered why dogs and cats chase their tails and now I can say from experience that I still have no idea, except that it is just plain and simple, fun! Anyway, we went into Coal Chamber… oh wait, before we started we decided that it would be much easier if one person would take all of the heat for us. Kind of a little wolfy shield of sorts, so we voted and decided it should be Drac! Myth, shh…you aren’t supposed to… What? I wasn’t supposed to tell that part? Oops…umm…well uh you can just edit that part out. So what do I say? OK, before we started Drac volunteered throw himself in front of any danger that might arise while we were in there. He is SO brave! Unfortunately, that strategy resulted in his demise on a fairly regular basis. But his heroic sacrifice meant that things went pretty smoothly for the rest of us. Maybe we should get him some snausages or something.

Loot

Stone of Victory

Green Briar Twigs or Chipmunk Funk

 

Rainbow in the Dark

It is really dark in here! Fortunately, Drac volunteered to carry a light for us. He is really very helpful in a quest. We did find out that he didn’t know Roy G. Biv but we introduced him so he got to learn something. How nice. 🙂

Damsels of DDO Episode 37, The Riddle

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, Lessah somehow tricked the group into doing everything SHE wanted to do, and the Stormreach Olympic Commission is still deciding if Sahba Jade took performance enhancing drugs in order to grow several feet and change classes.  Thanks so much for listening!

    • Who wants to do Caught in the Web? Eh? Eh?  I need 3 Hero Commendations…  
      • Let’s count the ways in which I am a failure… War Wizards hate me and so do the Purple Dragon Knights.  
    • Epic Completionist.  
      • Sahba Jade surprised me!  
        • Alice in Wonderland.  She ate the cake to grow bigger.

Celebrate celebrate! Dance to the music…

The first thing we did was a quick little run through the happy birthday ddo challenge. I think we did it because Lessah wanted some broccoli but then she didn’t get any so I’m not really sure. Our run really was quick so we didn’t stop and smell any roses or talk to any party guests but if you do, you will find that the guests are full of jokes and quotes from players and devs from the days of yore. Why is it called yore? Anyway, we killed Steelstar and his little dog too, string table error. We killed Cordovan (which I kind of felt bad about since he’s a pretty nice guy), Severlin and his skellie minions, and Vargouille. Now their are a couple of interesting things about Vargouille. the first being, he lives in the bathroom. An odd choice but hey, I’m not going to judge. The second is that Vargouille is a vargouille, which seems to be a big head with wings and from what I understand is a new monster in the game. So weird but very very cool. The final boss is the Dark Overlord, which is who Jeets turns into, who by the way is in love with Malicia. Poor Morah. We got 5 party favors and I’m getting a couple of cookies. I love having confetti poofing out of my body! Now that’s a fashion statement!

The Riddle

So, what had happened was, Sahba fell into a hole and then Lessah went in to look for her and I followed Lessah cuz that’s what I do. Then once we all got in there Sahba said she thought she heard that some wizard called Barthand, one of the war wizards actually, had fallen into this hole and never came back out and the rumor was that if you could solve a riddle then you could find him and release him. But this was just a rumor and not a fact by any stretch of the imagination. Anyway, as we came around a bend we saw three maidens standing in a circle chanting something. As we got closer we heard something like … “One falls in and two others follow. How many will there be to escape this hollow?” It could have been something else but I’m pretty sure that was it. Then all of a sudden they all turned into crones and we killed them right away. So really, does it matter what they were saying? We continue to run around killing everything we see and going into every cubby (and there are a lot of dead end cubbies in here) when we run into a door. Now, Sahba start talking to this door, which I thought was a little odd until I found out that it wanted a password, then it made complete sense but we didn’t know the password. So Sahba says that maybe that wizard back by the fire where we killed the crones knows it. So we went back to ask him. Low and behold it was Barthand standing there the whole time. I think he must have had a spell on him cuz once we talked to him and he told us the password he took off out of that place like the Flash was chasing him. There were more crones to kill and a bunch of vine horrors but basically that was it.

Loot

Nothing, nada, zero, zilch, the big goose egg, glass alllllll the way empty, nuttin honey, linty pockets,

Impossible Demands

This was just to top off Lessah’s Purple Dragon Knight favor (and she’s still 2 short….2!). We just went in, killed her and left. If you really want to hear us talk about this quest and loot listen to episode 18.

Intro:   Thank you once again to the AMAZING Bonnie Bew for making this tribute to our Assassin, Sahba Jade! 

  • The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Wednesday February 17th, 2016 at 11:00 PST. This is our 35th show.  We have a great show today with some great announcements!  

 

Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Sahba corrects and Myth sleeps:

    • I can literally give tours of Partycrashers now.  In fact I did!  Rent and Myth came with me and learned that you can get a ridiculous amount of loot from there!  
    • Epic Completionist. I am 400k past level 23.  Both Mythery and Rent were trotting off to level and I was like, “let’s do this.” What am I waiting for?! Also, I keep falling down and can’t get back up.  
      • Also I will Wow you with a freakish past life on the next go around.  (I’ll leave that as a surprise!)
      • How to get XP without really trying, by Mythery Inferno.  
        • Run challenges with Lessah
        • Have XP pot running at all times
        • Sneak online with Rent.  
    • I watched Shoemaker do DDO WIki talk after the fact, but he gives away things on his show, so I think it’s worth getting up for.  Tuesday mornings.  Also I don’t think Titan sleeps at all.  CM is still my go-to for Tuesday afternoon goodness.  
    • Rumors about Sahba Jade!  She is going to be on DDO Players!  

 

  • Rumors, News, and Lies
    • First up, a lie – sahbajade makes Lessah pug
      • Speaking of pugging, did Lessah pug?  
        • Pugging therapy!  I pugged a raid!  I got so much XP I capped at 22, so I had to take 23 for the show.  I am thinking about pugging with a new character!  
          • Update, I did this and I might have inadvertently made someone playing a female character uncomfortable.  I was playing a guy and not using mic, he was playing a girl not using mic.  Things got weird.  
            • “I have to go and do some dishes before my wife gets home”  Which in all fairness could mean a married same sex couple but they def wanted me to know they were unavailable.  
        • I’ve done this.  Started a new character and only pugged.  Some levels are easier than others.
    • News – We are going to have a special damsels’ night, with special guest Cordovan – Feb 26, special time probably around 7:30 or 8, depending on when Myth has finished feeding her hubs. No no no, seriously I have a photo session. I’ll be there when I’m done with it.
      • It’s 10th anniversary event day-long stream with Cordovan this day.

      • How much do you love Magnus Bane?  I love him thiiiiiiiiissss much!  

 

…apparently we just can’t get enough…

We are finished!! All the challenges all the time. First we fought a fancy drider. He thought he was the king of driders or something. I’m pretty sure this is Lessah’s fault because she was in there fawning all over him while he stood above us promising to kill us if his minions couldn’t accomplish the goal. Of course it didn’t go down like that and we had to kill him. I know this made Lessah die just a little inside. She was sad, mourned, and got over it so we could go on to kill a dragon. Easy come, easy go. Killing a dragon is ALWAYS fun!!! It was even fun for me and everything in there was either immune to fire or fire resistant. It was OK, we killed a dragon! All of this took place by entering a portal in the Eveningstar cavern, by the way.

Next we went over near the lady that does the epic training and found another couple of doorways that led to distant someplacings. The first door led us to a large field where there was what appeared to be the ruins of a small building and a couple of broken ballistas. The sun was just coming up and there were two purple dragon knights and a wizard hanging out. We ended up repairing the ballistas and guarding all three of those nerds. I think the wizard was doing some sort of ritual or something. It was easy enough and we just fought off a few wood wodes, bears, and wolves. The other door went to the same place from what I could tell, only the sun was setting and there was a different wizard there. This time we mostly fought wolves, some of which were of the ‘were’ variety. Still, a pretty simple task.

Finally, we bounced on over to the entrance to the King’s Forest where a couple of posts live that have windows that lead into a forest of their own. In these forests it is the trees that need protection, not the people. It’s fine, the Dryad’s are kind of annoying but I like the trees. We saved them from zombies, necromancers, and a few priestesses. A good time was had by all.

All of these challenges gave excellent XP and lots of ingredients! Now, what should we make? Items come in levels 16, 20, and 24. There are Cormyrian melee weapons, throwing weapons, crossbows, bows, robes, armors, shields, and a War Wizards staff. They come with randomly generated enchantments and there are “literally” a bizillion (because this is a real number) different combinations so I won’t be going into that. There are also some named things:

 

  • cloak of the bear – sheltering, protection, combat mastery, and incite
  • cloak of the wolf – exceptional seeker, dodge, attack bonus, and diversion
  • cloak of the dragon – spellcasting implement, potency, spell focus, and stealth strike
  • Everything is bound to character.

  • Fanservice Experiment will continue this Sunday.  Last time we did some character specific stuff and it didn’t go so well.  I’m thinking we need to stick to things that are way under level!  Or at least realistically appropriate.  Shair has died like three times and Count was counting soul stones.

          • Faeries – Half Demon/ Half Angel.  (Everyone sleeps with everyone when it comes to Downworlders!) Can’t lie, that’s why they answer questions with questions.  So basically faeries are like high-priced lawyers.  They deliver what you want at a very high price and usually with an ironic stinger.  

 

…and if our life isn’t challenging enough…

So, first we went to the beach and played with some kobolds and some undead dudes and THEN Lessah said, “Come over to this mansion and I’ll give you a tour. No, really, it’ll be great! Get over here!” So we go into this mansion and there are many bedrooms, and other rooms, and sweeping staircases. And we are running around in a frenzy grabbing crests and shoving them into doors. All the while a loud voice is announcing that we have X amounts of minutes to kill someone… I think. Eventually we enter a room in what are obviously the “projects” (why there are projects inside of a mansion I don’t know) and Lessah tells me this is where Dr. Rushmore lives! Here is what I want to know, why does Dr. Rushmore live in the most rundown part of his own mansion???

Housekeeping!

  • Fanservice Experiment will continue this Sunday.  I am ready to accept other guildies, but right now I only dedicate two nights a month to the guild.  That might increase once I forgive Turbine for forsaking me and I can craft again.

Life’s little challenges (my mind is a strange and scary place lol)

 

I was trying to write this little story and I was a few sentences in when I looked at it and noticed I was rhyming. For some reason I had some Dr. Seuss rolling around in my head and it didn’t want to leave so I just gave in to it. Sorry.

When things are running smoothly and the loot gen is weird,

the robes are dull and boring and your best cape was speared.

Or your hireling won’t heal you and would rather fight instead,

which drew too much agro and now you are dead.

You need to add a little challenge to your life.

Just hop the nearest airship and head to House C.

That’s where you can just run amok and go on a spree.

A host of little doorways which lead to pocket places abound.

Skirting the edges is where they are found.

A little challenge just might calm the strife

.

Entering these pockets may be dangerous and scary,

you could fall on your head and roll on your belly.

Landing on a beach is a possibility,

but a walk on the wild side is a test for agility.

And hey, I’m sure the challenges got a bunch of likes.

OK, now that that’s out of my system, we did the one with the thing and the kobolds and the one with the kobolds and that other thing. We also did two or three that had dragons and snakes ladies. Oh! And we did one with kobolds and the stuff and a big ass crystal. When they were over we got stars and stuff. Not to be confused with the stuff in the challenge and as for the stars, I think someone swiped mine cuz they weren’t in my backpack. Apparently, you can trade the stuff for loot. I like loot so I guess all is right with the world.

Damsels of DDO Episode 32, Amrath

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.  The Damsels headed to Amrath in the plane of Shavarath this week and watched several plays involving Silver Flame and The Twelve representatives in distress.

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???

  • 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.
