Greetings and salutations,

I would like to annouce that a new dedicated game group will be starting on Monday nights. This new group will be dedicated to showing the citizens of Stormreach the true power of the cleric. I would like us to be a group of all Clerics or Multiclass Clerics. We all know that before they became men or women of god they did other things in there lives (ie. the rogue who saw the error of his ways...) I would like us to have a start time of 9:30pm est as this allows me to put my kids to bed and keeps the wife aggro down. I would like to set a tentative start date of June 4th.

Rules of the Team
No twinking is allowed however the chuch did not send us to Stormreach with out funds to start our mission. Each member is allowed to start with 1k pp. This will allow us to buy the proper items needed to start our mission (ie. scrolls,potions and spell componets).

Light roleplaying is encouraged but not mandatory.

With these dedicated characters we will only play on the team's designated day (other than inventory or catching up and we do occasionally find ourselves running.

So if anyone is interested please feel free to shoot me a PM.

I did expect to see some applications in here?

Where is that once common street padfoot who now wishes to devote himself to the order, that hardened battle cleric to stand on the front line, and the note from the priest that has toiled long and hard to become the best turning focused undead machine there is here in Stormreach!

BTW ( I have no idea what I'm talking about, but it sounds good :o )

We are on Sarlona and yes you can multi Class. Now that I think of it all cleric's did something else before they found their calling as a Man of God. However your main focus must be that of a Cleric.

Oooh, so you're going to have a clr8/rog6, and a clr11/pal3, and a clr8/fgt6, and a clr8/wiz6, and a full blown cleric for the heck of it. Hehe. I'd join up, but too busy as it is.

I am guessing this is a new team under the Dedicated Teams guild banner on Sarlona. If they stick to their usual practices, all chracters would start at level 1 and level together. (Not sure how they will handle Drow/32 point builds for those that have them available on Sarlona.)

I will sign up. I will be playing a 28-point version of my dwarven war preistess. She will be heavily melee-centric. I will roll her and get her prepped. What are the guidlines as far as prep? Is it ok to run the solo only quests ahead of time or should we just do the wavecrest one?


*Edit: Well if I was in time to reserve a spot, her name is Endeara Ironsoul. I completed the wavecrest with her.

Would be fun, but alas I have a full roster at the moment (still working on 1750..sigh). Team Cleric.....Attack!!!!

As someone mentioned in another thread one time, in an all cleric party, who gets the blame when someone dies....grin.

Sign me up ! I totally agree with your interpretation of the cleric . Also agree that with a great multi-class variety such a group can be quit powerful with lots of action to see (can't wait to do delera's and necropolis).

My highest toon now is cler7:pal2 on Argonnessen. Personnally, i have nerver bought wands or potion (looted some though) and i believe that the cleric should manage with the way build themselves (higher/lower mana, wisdom, devotion etc.). To me it makes sense that heavily battle oriented clerics would NOT have same healing efficiency as one healing oriented one. So I do not expect the battle cleric to catch up on healing with wands since it is not a gift provided by his deity (other way around also true with all kinds of buffing wands or potion. This is just an opinion.

I would't mind 8pm EST (that's when my kids go to bed). I'm also happy to see that this looks like it'll be a MATURE group?

Waiting for further instructions see you all soon!

and I am not enclined to the rogue class. If we get any members that are interested in a rogue/cleric hybrid, I just came up with a decent build that should be able to handle anything at level up to hard. Let me know will be happy to share.

Do we have a time and day in mind?

I suppose I could try one of the following:


1-Cleric (12) / Rogue (2)
2-Cleric (11) Rogue (3)
3-Cleric (10) Rogue (4)


More than likely 2 would win out.

If you havent started already I suppose I can steam roll through to get up to 400 favor if possible.

Though I am partial to pure classes :)

TommyBoy
05-23-2007, 03:01 PM
you have time set as 930 est. how long would the play time be for? I ask because 930 gives about 2 hours of play time more them enough to do most runs but not enough for most chains.

Also would there be support for those of us coming from other servers as far as the starting supply money?

emsteiner
05-24-2007, 04:10 PM
Looking to play until about 12. For everyone that has posted thanks for the interest. I would like everyone that wants to be a part of this group to go ahead and roll your characters up and then PM me with there names. I myself am goning to reroll a Human Battle Cleric his name Josemaria. Again thanks for the interest and I will see everyone June 4th at 9:30 est.

P.S. I will be out of town for a few days this weekend so if you don't get a reply to your PM i'll get to it as soon as i get back.

05-24-2007, 05:41 PM
I was holding off until I felt I was ready rto play a cleric with the right people.



So what I was thinking was either a 28 point build or Drow Cleric...but more of a Pious templar feel. This would be accomplished by taking 3 or 4 levels of Fighter/Paladin, and the rest cleric. Since I most likely would start out as a Fighter/Paladin or at least in L2, are there any leveling restrictions if the end result is majority cleric?

emsteiner
05-25-2007, 11:09 AM
I understand that the majority of everyone will be multiclassing so what I would like the group to achive is a end result of the majority of levels being a Cleric. Thanks everyone for your responses.

Beorn_The_Bear
05-27-2007, 02:17 PM
Not only do I agree that your clerics level should ALWAYS (meaning you HAVE TO start as a cleric) be higher than your cross-class level but in order to respect the initial idea that was to have a full cleric party I would suggest to maintain a max ratio of 1:2 cross-class level to cleric level (cross1:cleric2; cross2 cleric4; cross3:cleric6; cross4:cleric8 and so on...). This would allow a personnalized touch to your toon without compromising to much of the ALL CLERIC feel. To me a cleric 5: barbarian 5 just doesn't sound like a cleric anymore.:o What do you think? (and I am still opened to the idea of making this a pure cleric adventure and live with the pros and cons) ever played on Sarlona so I will really be starting from scr

Also, I have never played on Sarlona so I will really be starting from scratch (no money and only starter's equipement). It doesn't really matter to me but obviously I might be a step behind the rest of people who have access to previously earned money or equipement.

That being said, I'm sure this will be a great time for all of us. Beorn The Bear will be looking for you on the 4th of June.

I dont think a rogue / cleric would want to start 1st level as a cleric, they would get a quarter of the starting skill points. Also it has been noted that it is alright to start as another class and FIND your place in the church... Just saying... ;)

emsteiner
05-30-2007, 05:49 PM
Lets keep this on track. If you are multi classing it is ok to start as something other than a cleric as long as you take the majority of your levels as a cleric.

Beorn_The_Bear
05-31-2007, 01:34 AM
I'll go with anything you guys want really. As a matter of fact i didn't realize that indeed there was a considerable loss of skill points at creation in certain situations. Then i'll probably use the same approach. Thanks for pointing that out.

Indeed Salaheddine appreciated adventuring with newly met friends. Salaheddine learns very fast to know his companions. It takes time to know Salaheddine.
Salaheddine has lived thousands of years, in the vicinity of dwarves but never in their company.
I was allowed to rise from the shadows by a Dwarf named Conclave. I shall from now on be his shadow. His sword will deal damage to enemies that can not be explained by his might alone. His enemies will fear him as they will not understand the true nature of his strenght and neither will he...as neither will see me.

Just thought I'd drop a note to wish you all good luck and I hope you have a great time with the group.

I'm in an all Cleric group on Ghallanda ... The Clerics of Dol Dorn ... and we've been running since the game started. I've got to say it's a blast! We also do not twink and Cleric-wise our rule is that at least half your levels must be Cleric. Early and mid-level content was a breeze. Starting around level 9 and up things become a little different then with a normal 6-person group. Definitely need to strategize a bit more to tackle some quests.

Our lineup is:

Cleric
Cleric
Cleric/Rogue
Cleric/Wizard
Cleric/Barbarian
Cleric/Fighter

Anyhow, just wanted to say good luck and I hope you have loads of fun.
