I would like to hear from the players out there who design and play their toons based on an idea. Not just the mathmatics of the game.

I play a Samuri warrior very loosely based on Kensi from Heros the tv show.

He has bad AC (splint mail armor)
Good but not great str all of his other stats are average with a chr of 9.

I work on his tactics in combat and depend greatly on the cleric in the party to act as my regeneration.

Just want to hear about your toons.

Deryck: Fighter (Level 4) He is based on a Pen and Paper Character.

Deryck fought in Clan wars with the Dwarves and was almost killed.
He came away with a scar accross his one Eye that almost Blinded him.
He had looted a ring of regeration (D&D Vers 1.0 [Type that holds you at -9])
Though his eye sight had been restored a companion (not knowing any better)
Hit him with what he had THOUGHT was a healing Balm called "Kegotrohms Ointment"
I reality it was a healing Salve known as "Orc Balm" This does heal, But:...
It ALSO does 1d6 BURN DMG! Thus forever leaving deryck
with a Hideous Scar across his face. :eek:

Deryck is very strong, but his Charisma is Hideous ( Cha 8)
I told the story of his Battle beside the Dwarves in Ghoste's Thread

I'm gonna keep my new barb in Hide armor since his AC sucks anyway and no shield. Because you just look so freakin bad-ass with an Owlbear head on your chest and bearclaw fuzzy slippers. I will at least try to find the skin on a +5 Hide.

Most all of my characters are based on an Idea,
I do not do the "I want an Uber Character" thing.

Peniafrancia:
She is a Pen and Paper Character who was tuned to Stone-
"FOR 75 YEARS!"
Stats: Based on what I actually rolled for her in Pen and Paper.

Grismil:
Was a warforged Fighter from Pen and Paper.
Wound up working as a guard for the Silver Flame
when the Party found him. His Bio too is posted with Ghoste.

Bekki:
He is based on a Dwarven Paladin I played in Pen and Paper.

On his Last adventure he brought about a renewal
of a peace treaty between Elves and Dwarves...
Since I was New to DDO; I rolled him as a Fighter.

Loderick and Sildehwen are based on being related to
Some of my other characters.

I try to create them to a theme, rather than min/ max.
It seems more fun that way.:cool:

Charm the Bard/Fighter.

I wanted her to be like that guy in the war movies who plays the guitar in the trenches right before they get attacked.

The basic idea is that she was a musician by trade until the war (level 1 bard). She ended up fighting in the war (2 levels of fighter for 2nd and 3rd) and then after she went back to music but crafted it to assist her and her allies in combat as she'd learned to in combat.

i have had this idea, and botched it, before. this time i think im getting the best of both worlds in that my idea and story are flowing together with the mathematics.

she will be a drow paladin with a longbow focus. starting off in xendrik as a fighter simply b/c of necessity for the drow people in this area. she learned ranger skills, but as her sense of injustices against the drow grew she became a paladin.

havent hit the paladin levels yet, but they are next and im pretty excited.

My 14 barb wears this very armour. Best I can find is like +2 fearsome of axeblock and hammerblock. Thing with hide armour is
only some of it has the owlbear look, the other type is just hairy...so buying off the AH is hit n miss.

Does look very good tho. Only ever saw one other barb wearing it and she was low level.

Style, my barbarian has tons of it...he just looks badass.

I want to make a Turok build. Mostly Ranger with some Fighter and Rogue thrown in. Favored enemies of reptile, dragons, and evil outsiders if he has enough levels in ranger.

I have a Warforged (currently) 12/2/1 Rogue/Ranger/Fighter that uses two Rapiers, not exactly the most mathmatically min/maxxed build :D

well I was trying to make a WF wiz... and trying to think of names I looked over at my book shelf and saw unearthed arcana, and figured it be a good name for a WF wiz. found at an escavation site and repaired, doesn;t remember anythign from before being repaired.

got a rogue based on a rogue I've been playing for years, a drow rogue, cept this time I made it male, changed the name from calia to calio. rogue that likes to fight close ranged with a bow... have adapted it to best suit ranged weapons. in PNP he used covered hand crossbows dual weiled, kept a few loaded hanging at his belt so he could get off a few shots quickly before he ended up in melee combat. in NWN it was a longbow, here its a repeater.

if they ever release half orcs and I find a RP group I'm going to recreat mack... one of my favorite chars from PNP. strong as a bull and not much smarter... if something he was fighting with made him mad(normaly all it took was landing a hit on him) he would drop his great axe and pummel the guy with his fists. he also had a habbit of throwing his great axe at things that made him mad and were too far to pummel with his fists. the rogue friend of his ended up talking a wizard into making a returning greataxe for him. this was after he lost 3 great axes by throwing them off the boat at things flying around and annoying him

My fighter has the FUGLIEST set of full plate around .. so, I found the ugliest intimidate helmet to go with it (its round with a flat top and a horn sticking out of the top!) .. I've pulled other sets of +5 MFP, but none were quite as hideous as his lime-green set :) so they were all given to guildies with more fashion sense.

The armor/hat combo has the side effect of guaranteeing me timely barkskin/stoneskin reloads inquest :)

Dailus
03-26-2008, 08:50 AM
My latest character is based off the classic 16th century swashbuckler. I'll be leveling him as a Thief-Acrobat 15/fighter1 with an emphasis on flashy combat. He'll primarily be using a rapier and buckler combo. I roleplayed him a bit last night and I find this character really easy to get into.

I almost with I had something positive to add to this thread, but I don't RP. :( However I do have this:

My monk *yet to be rolled on the live servers* come's from Shaolin (in NYC not China). His name is OlDirtyB AKA Big Baby Jesus
and he doesn't play around. Thank the devs for corn rows because he wouldn't exist w/o them. His goal is to annihilate all other
pimps and slingas on the block, while maintaining his cool and rockin chuchas. You may also call him Osiris, but only if you are willing
to yell "Hooooo, dee hayyyyyyy, de haaaaaaaahhhhh" when he enters a pary.


Love,
Cache

MOST of my builds are Style-based.

Graywalker - my Ranger13/Rogue3 - Is pretty good at a lot of things. Mostly his forte' is sneaking in, getting the job done and sneaking out. Unfortunately, not so doable in DDO as sneaking/hiding is so bloody broken. He prefers to range and likes the cold... (Hence the Greensteel bow Shock, Icy Burst, going to be Good Blast or Shocking blast with Freezing Ice if I can muster up dual shard grinding).

Hawksfire - His magic can heal, but he prefers to destroy! (Cleric 16). He is a caster cleric, not so big on the melee, but throwing spells and wreaking havoc is easily accomplished. (He did solo to the end of Tharask Arena last night with almost no sp, blackheart and his bloody Irresistable Dance gave him problems though)

Batsran - A Drow with the name of an angel, but throws fire like he is from somewhere else. Sorcerer who is very proud of being the heir of a Dragon's power. Mostly silent and deadly with a quick spell.

Tweek - A.D.D. at it's finest. Not very bright, but he can fight. "What you want Tweek kill now?" Jumpy and spastic like he has just been 'tweeking' a few lines.

Oldemann - He has been called an old man most of his life, and he is still rather young, but he reads his books, studies his magic and tries to do a little good here and there.

Skeratch Brasher - A Dwarf without a beard - or hair. A "tough-guy" thug with some smarts. He was a bandit, charging tolls for protection on "his" road... and occasionally just bashing up the whole wagon train for the loot. He is after gold and loot and adventure. Doing a little good on the way is a happy accident. He ain't pretty but... well, he ain't pretty.

My mod 3 ranger. rng13/1wiz/2fig. Halfling with maximize, empower healing and the full dragonmark line. he can hit full heals for 486. Just wanted to see how the dragon marks would do stacked with the ranger devotion line. He was alot of fun to lvl, but i recently dropped some of the healing to qualify him for tempest.

My most character based character is Sweenee Todd, based on the demon barber of course. Dual wielding kukris, 14rogue/2fighter. He does pretty good damage, but tends to get cut down once he gets aggro... oops...

Does anyone need a shave?

Shaamis
04-28-2009, 10:35 AM
I come to DDO with a PnP role-playing background.

All of the characters I have kept through the drought period of DDO level ing (9-12) have survived that time because I enjoyed playing them and seeing them develop, more than their mathematical superiority.

Most people will tell you the character build means just as much as the player who runs it, and I agree. if the Player is not into playing said character, the character will fail.

So.......Shaamis, my dwarven monk, is not min-maxed, doesnt have the best equipmet or stats, BUT, he is by far my favorite character, because of his background, role-playing flavor, and sheer fun I have playing him.

Good to see others have the same desire to have fun for the character aspect, as opposed to the "gotta win" aspect of DDO.

Kalari
04-28-2009, 11:21 AM
The Dathenor sisters-

Kalari the quiet- Magically intuned elf wizard who dables in magically repairing constructs. She tends to like to work alone but will work with others to suit her needs. Dreams of one day having a tower where she can study artificial creation threw magical means. wizard level 16

Kamari the restless- Divine bringer of chaos Kamari likes to deal out harsh punishment to her enemies using her divine powers. Quick to jump into a battle with spells or swords shes brash and loves to jump into the fray during a heated battle. cleric level 16

Tamiya the trickster- Sleek and deadly Tamiya unlike her siblings does not harness much magic. Having light divine powers and more of a talent towards stealth and protetcting the wilds. Good to get into and out of trouble without leaving much of a trace... Ranger level 8 rogue level 1
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/tyn616/kalarimini.jpghttp://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/tyn616/kamarimini.jpghttp://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/tyn616/Tamiyamini.jpg

The Pyxy's

Nyxy- The only daughter (or so she thought) of a leader of a thieves guild. Nyxy is quick with a sword and can take a trap down without much effort. She loves to kill and steal, but has a strange desire to defend the wilds. level 14 ranger level 1 rogue

Nyxi- Is she truly Nyxy's little sister? Like Nyxy this girl has rogue skills but also has an inclination towards the arcane arts as their mother had. But why does her existance seem mysterious? ^_^ level 2 wizard level 1 rogue

http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/tyn616/nyxymini.jpghttp://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/tyn616/nyximini.jpg

All those girls are elves ^_^

My non elves

Severi Ironstrong- This dwarven lass came to stormreach to prove herself to her clan. Showing a talent towards healing magics Severi longs to truly be a warrior. Laughed by her elder brothers and told to just become a healer, Severi struggles to find a balance between cutting things down and bandaging them back up. Cleric level 2 fighter level 1
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t116/tyn616/severimini.jpg

Trinaty faithhand- Only child of a master Artificer Trinaty once dabbled in the talent herself along with trainning from a master theif. Shunning the ways of evil she decided to rededicate herself towards divine magics. Her families talents for construct repair did not go lost on her and she bares the mark of Marking which allows her to heal all allies in the thick of battle. (always wanted to make a cleric who could heal both fleshies and non fleshies at once and picked a human to do it since they get that dragon mark) Rerolled her from level 2/1 cleric rogue to a pure cleric Human.

Now I dont really rp anymore and havent done a pen and paper session in a few years now, but most of my girls have some form of background. And have plenty of style :)

lol this is funny.

question though, was mack ever smart enough to catch the returning greataxe? :)

I figure out a theme, sometimes a story but often a theme or even just a name, and then try to realize it as a DDO character.

I have one impossible theme that I keep resurrecting but unsatisfactorily: the confluence of existing names and DDO prudery filters make it really hard to create Faster Pussycat Kill Kill. I've tried various alternate spellings but they are all lame and end up in the delete bin.

Another tough theme to encharacterize (? what kind of word is that ?) for completely different reasons are ones that require melee and caster. They mix awesomely in PnP but not so much in DDO. So we won't be seeing "Ardent Sparksmore, Adventurer/Technician" anytime soon. Closest I have come to a decent fighter/magic-user so far is a wizard/monk, she is up to level 12 and is a kick to play, but I worry about her in the end game.

On the other hand, I've had great success with the theme "Halfling Commando". I have one perfect Halfling Commando and two others that I think will work well when I redo them.




The Dathenor sisters ... The Pyxy's ... All those girls are elves ^_^

My non elves ... dwarven lass ... ... pure cleric Human ...

My Drow Fighter-Wizard is based on the Drow of advanced. Like others elves they take advantage of the dual-class system. The Drow were reknowned for their two-weapon fighting, so I embrace that as well.
I like to make claim that I am the One True Fighter-Wizard.
This build is a blast to play!

Hehe im thinking of remaking Washuu ^_^ she was my halfling wizard based off the character from Tenchi, its just to bad I cant copy her wicked hairstyle :) I got her to level 4 before I rerolled her

Sadly, any char I have created with a theme/or role playing aspect to them, seems to turn out to NOT be a good DDO char. Several have been deleted or made into Mules.

Drkpriestess AlmostEvliBattleClr is CN and refuses to use any "good" spells....like Bless for instance. She prefers Bane. She does use wands for things like Remove Curse etc. But chooses to memorise Bestow Curse instead. She meorises all the Inflict wounds spells and Unholy Blight as well.
She wears Armor with skull design on it (a green version of the BloodPlate Armor graphic) And Shield with a Skull design, and several clubs that look like they are toped with a skull. She has in her bio: "/beg and /kneel: that's how you get me to heal."

My Female WF Brb only wears a Pink Docent around town....but can't find a good Pink one to wear in a dungeon.

My CC Enchanter specced Sorc Khanari has only two spells that actually cause damage. And for the longest time, I refrained from actually killing anything in a dungeon. She considers killing something beneath her and only fit for crude low-brow melee types. Occasionally the party runs off without killing one of her held/stone baddies and she turns her back on the monster and casts a Firewall on him with a flick over her shoulder as she slowly walks away from the monster, as if he is no concern to her.

Blackfeather is a Ftr Archer build. He's an Elf with a huge scar on his face and a Mowhawk haircut. He's CN and was designed to be a steriotypical Native American Elf warrior. Even prefered handaxes as a melee weapon at lower lvls. He also uses shields with an Arrowhead design on them.

Halfling Thrower Build named Tomahawk who prefers hand/throwing axes. He also wears glasses and his bio says something about him being a near-sighted marksman.

WF Rgr who wears a Helmet that looks like a Samurai helmet and used to use a Sword that looks like a Katana.

Blackmace got deleted but he was a bludgeoned specced fighter.

Professorwiz Warforge Doctor is a dragon marked human wiz who is designed as a WF healer(repairer)....and old bald man who also uses the Iron Companion enhancements and jokes about needing to fix that oil leak....he also carrys hirling contracts (all WF of course) (My very own Terminator!....cool...)

I'm sure I have more.....but unfortunately none of these turned out to be very good DDO chars... :(

I love that your builds are conceptual. I love my 8Fighter/8Wizard, and my 5Fighter/5Cleric. The Dwarven Fighter-Cleric is a TRUE BATTLE-CLERIC, and thusfar my spells are mostly attack, and or "debuffing" spells. Great characters both really.
Thanks for sharing.

btw Sicarii Darkhour the Fighter-Wizard has a cool horned helm, purple skull-armor, duel wields with one weapon being the Chaosblade.

Morlock Sixfinger has a shaved head, handle-bar moustache and an eyepatch. He wears spiked armor.

again, good-job

I'm gonna keep my new barb in Hide armor since his AC sucks anyway and no shield. Because you just look so freakin bad-ass with an Owlbear head on your chest and bearclaw fuzzy slippers. I will at least try to find the skin on a +5 Hide.

I have a set on my Great Crossbow Ftr. Talonkhan The Hunter. He's got a Mongolian look to him and I imagine him as a big game hunter...using his medievel elephant gun.

I also had a lowbie Brb who wore a +1 version of that armor. He later got deleted though.
Bamn Bamn Pebbles Banger was a max Str Halfling Brb who used a great club. :)

Thx.
Not all of my chars are like that.....I've created chars on everyserver and two accounts...lots of room to experiment.
And like I said, most of the themed ones didn't really turn out that well.

Though in hindsight.....
Blackfeather and Khanari are capped. Drkpriestess made it to 14.
Blackfeather is a one trick pony, but he's the best archer I've seen in DDO.
Still he's a master of a gimped fighting style and the Rgr cap has made me strongly consider hid permenet retirement... :(

Khanari is actually a very good char as well......but her lack of damage spells and nuking ability make her weak against red names.....and no one really cares how easy they got through the trash mobs, if they don't have the firepower to take down the end boss. :( Still she makes many quests a cakewalk, as she can neuter an army in seconds.

The more I read this thread the more I realise I've made even more themed chars than I thought.

Metaphysical Knight of the Magi is a WF Battle Wizard. 18Str, PA, and buffs up to whack things with a Qstaff. His name was a play on words for his more physical applications of magic.

Talonkhan the Hunter has a mongolian look to him, uses a great crossbow, has some minor stealth skills and wears hide armor that looks like a gryphon skin over his shoulder.

Bamn Bamn Pebbles Banger was a max Str halfling Brb who used a great club and had that same hide armor design.

Tornadokhan was designed from day one to use whirlwind attack as soon as possible.

Mekt Ranzz is a lightning specced sorc based on Lighting Lord from the Legion of Super Heroes comics.

Had a dragon marked halfling cleric named Doogiehowser MD. (deleted of of fear for vilolating naming rules...and a general bordom with healing clerics)

Phantomheart is a WF rogue who has in his bio the words from the Wizard of Oz song, If I only had a heart."

Shieldknight(two versions) was a shieldbashing specced char. First draft is a mule now, but second version has some promise as an intimitank....although his Dex and Cha aren't high enough to max AC or Intimidate. :(

Hmmm.....might be all.
Most didn't get past lvl 5 or so.....but a few have made it higher. (two got capped)

My WF Rgr I mentioned in an earlier post looks awesome in his Samarai helmet. Kinda like a golem I saw in some old horror movie. His face actually looks like Japanese armor as well.

Edit: just thought of one more..lol.
Docwhite The Seventh Husband
A Dwarf Cleric with white beard and glasses. His bio tells how he and his brothers were suduced by a young princess and forced to toil away in the mines, while she sat at home all day singing and playing with furry animals. He came to Stormreach to fight a never-ending battle against evil and cute little gold-diggers everywhere.

Lol....thx.
(hope that was a compliment)

I just get bored easily. While othes are checking their Shroud timers, I'm off fidling around with a lowbie somewhere. I like the Raids...esp like the Shroud loot.
But been there, done that, got the greensteel.

I log onto my main everyday (when I'm not at sea anyway. :( )
And see if there is any interesting groups for him....Visons Elite?!...nope....nothing I haven't done with him yet.......hmmm....what to do, what to do?

I consider Thelanis my home, and don't usually experiment there...char slots are too valuable there. Transfered several from there after the merger.

But we got a whole bunch of other servers, and I got a second account so my daughter could play with me.....lots of room to play around.

But like I said, I don't consider any of those my main, and many get deleted if they don't turn out to be fun to play.
Most aren't good DDO builds, but it's fun to do something different for awhile.

Sadly it's those odd-ball char that have the most "style" and the best bios...
Feel sad about the ones I deleted.

Twigman: Capped halfling barbarian who uses combat expertise and only uses quarterstaves (aside from vorpal and wounding).

Twig started out after I collected staffs for the soon-to-be-released monk class. I ended up with so many cool staffs, and no good date for monk release, that I made Twig so I could get some use out of them. I went with barbarian because I didn't have one, halfling because I didn't have one, and combat expertise because trip sounded like fun.

At cap, Twig can self-buff to 50+ AC, or go full-out DPS mode with 30-ish AC. He's got 24-26 in Str, Con, Dex, and Int. I've had him intimi-tank the dogs in hound, tank the reaver, take the devil/orthon/cat in shroud, etc. The improved trip can take down pretty much anything on 2 legs without a red name, and a great deal of the 4-legged foes as well. Still trying to land a trip on a spider, though :(

The build doesn't make any sense at all... people give some strange reactions when the barb takes the int rune in subterraen... but he's a blast to play, and an effective combatent in end-game. That even surprised me.
