Damsels of DDO Episode 13, Temple of Elemental Evil

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 the Damsels did a virgin run of the Temple of Elemental Evil.  We did it over two nights and combed all the tangles out of the dungeon.  We also talk about TV and some other stuff and our plans for this summer with Gimps!  Thanks so much for listening!

  • Epic Normal with Caaryn
    • Part 1 – didn’t zerg but didn’t check all areas – 68 mins
      • took no damage in the poison mushroom prior to the end fight (hit cocoon and jumped my way across)
      • did what we learned from heroic version in final fight – move the elementals from their quadrant to engage (don’t leave air elemental for last <G>)
    • Part 2 –
      • Ogre named at beginning – lots of hit points – his hp bar went down very slowly but he also couldn’t hit me

Forum Feedback so far

  •  Amazing quests – awful loot
    • “The issue at hand is that the named gear is simply terrible compare to existing high level gear.  It offers no compelling reason to use them over what we already have.”
