Hello all!

First off- I'm enjoying this game very much indeed. I'm a former DM for AD&D (~'79-'85) and I've recently reviewed the 3.5 cores, so I understand the PnP game fairly well. DDO seems ideally suited to the rather complex mechanics of combat developed in the 3+ cores.

I'm still a newbie to DDO. I've been playing for about 2.5 weeks and I've built a 5th lvl barbarian. However, I did not realize that I should have completed the 1-4 level quests on all diff. levels in order to get the best gear and the most favor. I usually completed the quests in groups on "normal", but I also completed several on "solo" only. Therefore, I'm a bit short on favor and have fewer powerful weapons than I'd like (though several cool players gave me some great stuff!).

I am interested in playing first-time quests slowly, seriously, for the best feel-of-the-game/escapism. I would also like to run quests already completed on higher diffs for the favor/items/xtra XP. Apart from re-running old quests at higher levels, I am not interested in playing DDO in some kind of ultra-competitive, mathematical manner where players rush through the game like automatons, exploit bugs, and otherwise obviate the immersion/gaming feel that I'm looking for.

I understand that to best appreciate the game, one should join a guild, especially with >4th level characters. How should I go about locating a guild as a newb with my present character? My concern is that no decent guild would want a newb like me :(. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
