Damsels of DDO Episode 54, Purple Dragon Knights

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. We went chasing favor in the name of fashion this time! I don’t know who was punished more, Myth because she couldn’t play her fire savant, or Sahba Jade because her computer shut itself down in the middle of questing! Be patient Sahba! It has to go to space first! Thanks so much for listening!

We did the two flagging quests for the legendary Shroud.

 

To Curse the Sky (To kiss this guy)

First we went to clear the devils out of one of House Deneith’s fortresses. When we got there what we found that was some sort of war between some Abishai and Archons and of all things, Malicia was there and apparently in charge. It looked like the Abishai were winning because there were downed Archons all over the place. We helped the ones we could and made our way through the place, killing devils, orthons, slaad, and abishai all the way. In one room we came across a erinyes, which is some sort of devil but it looks more like a human with horns and wings. The place was big and really clean. This must be one of the nicer fortresses. We cleaned the place out and there was one room left, which is where we found Malicia. She had a lot of abishai minions but we beat them and then beat her. I wonder if we actually killed her this time?

 

Loot

  • Ingredients
    • Codex Runes, 3-7 on LH difficulty
    • LGS materials, small and medium

 

Creeping Death (Kobold Jello Molds, a how-to guide to spice up your holiday cooking!)

I thought this quest was great! I loved the red jelly cube. It reminds me of the wall in the shroud for some reason.There were quite a few traps, oozes, and kobolds on steroids. These are the beefiest kobolds I’ve ever met. One of Harry’s Lieutenants was riding around inside of the cube trying to kill us. He looked pretty happy and I think it was his pet cube. In order to get through the place we had to get the cube to move of some runes in the floor. This was accomplished by disabling the traps, pulling some levers, and solving a couple of puzzles. Every time we managed to get the cube over a rune it was teleported to someplace else in the sewers but we did finally catch up with him. We fought him and his minions, there were some air traps in the room that couldn’t be disabled but it was OK. I think Lessah was having fun rides across the room on them.

 

Apologies to Mythery for locking her in with a jello mold that killed her instantly. Was hard to watch.

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.

  • Rumors, News, and Lies
    • First up, a lie – Sahbajade refuses to run the Shroud with Mythery and Lessah…

        • 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.

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!

      • You know, like most modern relationships, DDO no longer does phone support…it’s just too hard to talk to people in a forum that isn’t text-based.  

Mask of Deception  

So we are supposed to go somewhere and do something to someone because apparently there is a new cult in town. As if there aren’t enough cults in Stormreach, they have started to spread over to Eveningstar. As usual, when we are in a quest that we haven’t done before, we slowly go everywhere and check out everything….NOT. We get in there and Sahba and Lessah start talking about how they have masks to put on and I’m like, what in the family show are these doody heads talking about? So they tell me I have one in my inventory because EVERYONE gets on in their inventory. So, I start to look for mine and the next thing I know I’m standing there all alone because they had run off and left me. We ran through this quest like our butts were on fire. I had fun anyway, there are some traps that are fun to run through and it was pretty good XP considering it didn’t take long to finish. I do think that we should probably do it like it is meant to be done sometime. Oh, and about those masks, I guess the first two people get one in their inventory and then there is a chest with four more masks for the rest of the group. A chest we would have seen if we had taken time to look I imagine.

 

Loot –

 

A Study in Sable

Hmm…..what can I say about this? I can say that we now know who to give what to as far as those weirdo guests in the manor. I can say that we managed to kill everything, including the bully on the roof, without too too much trouble. I can say that this quest needs another shrine in it. And finally, holy cats what’s with that Lord Sable!?!?!? Geeze! Can’t say we didn’t try. I think we are going to do it on hard just so we can actually finish the thing and get a little satisfaction in killing that that grrr vampire! Unfortunately we won’t get the thing.

 

Loot

There is a greatsword called the Hunter’s Slayer, BTC on equip, and the thing otherwise known as the Golem’s Heart – unbound, blue augment, ML28, 2% chance on being hit for 20d6 healing to you and 50d6 Electric damage to nearby enemies.

Through a Mirror Darkly  

Oriphaun Huntsilver says that he heard that some Netherese have a Nether Scroll and he wants us to go take it from them. Sahba and Lessah were all….hmm…I don’t know…I don’t wanna…and various other whiney things. In truth, they were just big chickens. They knew that if we went over to Oldstone Hall (which is where the dudes with the scroll were supposed to be) that we would have to spend a lot of time looking in the mirror. That place is famous for having these thinnies in the mirrors and bad guys wanting to hide things like to go there and hide stuff behind the mirrors. Makes perfect sense to me and I don’t have a problem with mirrors. Seriously, how are you going to see which pretty robe to wear if you don’t have a mirror or which pretty robe looks the best? And if you have to look behind a few to find something hidden there…well, so be it! Anyway, we went and let me tell you, this place is crawling with bad guys hiding things! We went back and forth, in front and behind the mirrors many many times. I think we pretty much found everything hidden in the place, more than just a Nether Scroll anyway. It was easy and a lot of fun! I want to do it again sometime.

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

    • 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).

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!

Intro:   

  • The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Wednesday, March 8th, 2016 at 11:00 PST. This is our 37th show.   Welcome everyone!  

 

Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Sahba corrects and Myth sleeps:

    • 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.
      • Crystal Cove,
        • Five minute heal pot works great!  The last upgrade sucked the worst.  Also, I made two of these…
      • How to get XP without really trying, by Mythery Inferno.  
        • Heroic Elite XP will come to you as long as you are not more than five level above the quest!  
        • Rent?  
    • Rumor about Sahba Jade… she took performance enhancing drugs in order to grow the size of an Amazon.  

 

  • Rumors, News, and Lies
    • First up, a lie – Sahbajade STILL makes Lessah pug
      • Speaking of pugging, did Lessah pug?

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.

Here is the questing goodness if any of you are interested in running the Eveningstar Challenges for yourself!

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.

      • 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.

    • I saw you playing an Artificer in the Red Eye group.  How is that compared to the phenomenal cosmic power and itty bitty living space of a sorcerer?

  • 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.

Intro:   

  • The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Wednesday February 2nd, 2016 at 11:00 PST. This is our 34th show.  
    • After many runs of Cabal in House Phiarlin, I have upgraded two things!  
      • Brawnpits Spirits (very cool, has green augment slot and 20% insight bonus to threat) and Big Top Hat
    • Pugging… not really.  I’m using halflings hirelings, I figure going halfway is better than not going.  
      • Question…do you use VC when you pug?
    • What happens when you are stuck home on a Friday night after your other plans fall through?  You get sucked into the DDO Cast!  

 

  • Rumors and News
    • Did Lessah pug?  Girl gamers – does harassment still go on??
    • 2016 Player’s Council
    • DDO Winter Games – how’s it going?
    • Forums
      • R.I.P. Heroic Raids???

 

  • Before we start!  
    • Doctor Who
      • Not on Netflix anymore? It’s gone from all my lists. I can keep watching on Amazon, but at a cost.  I’m not sure I have that in me.  Spoiler free!  
      • Shadowhunters!!!!
        • Parabatai
          • Like marriage but only for the underage and platonic!  
            • Official oath and a life bond, after age 19, no dice.  
        • A lesson in Vampires and Faeries!  
          • Vampires – gold standard, undead, no sunlight, can feel when sire dies, buried in the ground ala True Blood… yada yada
            • Grave site dirt text messaging?  
          • 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…
 photo Mythery.png
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???

  • All Things Mythery:   (What do you think of your new theme song?! Thanks BonnieBew for Beweing up the song and making it crazy awesome!)

      • Sahba: “Myth, you should go repair.”

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!!!

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.

        • Do we need a new difficulty?
        • What is the worst designed raid?
        • Lessah still thinks Paladins are not overpowered (when discussing Are classes balanced with each other and the game? and What class is overperforming?)
          • Sahba Jade unpopular opinion.

        • Did the armor up PRR/MRR changes go too far?  Are they too good?

Here is the quest!  Enjoy!

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
      • Escort quests
      • 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.”

            • 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!

Trial by Fury

Loot:

The Deal and the Demon

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