Helping new or returning players, one topic at a time!


DDO Dictionary: Static Group
Definition: This alternative play style involves grouping with the same set of players on a regular basis. They schedule a reoccurring play time, and bring the same characters each time to the play session. They never play their character at times other than with the other players in the static group. This allows all their static group characters to progress at the same rate, and experience content together. Some static groups have special rules, such as not using the auction house or trading with characters outside their static group. If static groups sound like something you may be interested in, be sure to check out this forum (http://forums.ddo.com/forumdisplay.php?f=48)!

In a world where threads are tasty and posts are food, one Cube has chosen a question.
Now he's looking for answers...



This Week's Question, Tarrant (http://forums.ddo.com/member.php?u=200415) asked: "What's the worst party wipe you've ever had?"

This week's Answers:
Tasthesose (http://forums.ddo.com/member.php?u=147778) answers: My character Wholydhiver had his worst party wipes in Prison of the Planes. The Warforged boss is a mean spirited box of bolts and has killed the whole party more times than I would care to count, part of it might come from our desire to try it while we are all level 10, but alas such is the way of Gianthold.

Sirea (http://forums.ddo.com/member.php?u=163274) answers: Wasn't exactly a wipe (I was outside the room) but we were doing a PoP run a few months ago. It was going well, we'd already gotten one chest, and were feeling a bit full of ourselves I think :p So we decide to go get the Demon Queen room. I'm on my wizzie, so I stay outside an pull the switch while the big burly tanks with their vorpals get to swinging. I swear that snake lady got them all in only two swipes. I was laughing so hard I was almost in tears :D

Ustice (http://forums.ddo.com/member.php?u=15605) answers: In my last PUG in Vision of Destruction, I personally used 10 mana pots, 150 heal scrolls, and 10 rez scrolls. A djini cake was even used. Other players used about as many resources. Despite all of that, we all died on the last round of firebats (in case you don't know that is when he is about 5% of his health). I will never PUG this raid again. :)

I don't know if this counts as a party wipe for myself, but I was in a cave just minding my own business. Then I look down and I see these adventurers all huddled around a chest. I lost my balance and fell on them and well... you can probably guess the rest of the story

- Your Friend, The Cube.

Next Week's Question: Aspenor (http://forums.ddo.com/member.php?u=29672) asks

"Eladrin vs Tolero vs FlimsyFirewood CAGE MATCH!!! Who would win? Inquiring minds need to know..."

You know now that you mention it, I think we got a wire crossed when he told me there was another preview for you guys this week lol. I'll fix that too while I'm in there.

DRAGONMARK OF MAKING!!!!! That is so awesome. Well done Lessah! You probably would have received the DRAGONMARK OF BLINDING AWESOMENESS had you allowed those edits by your unthinkably clever husband to go through! Somebody rally behind me! Plenty of room, there. Somebody. Anybody? Helloooo? Hunh....must have seen Clanky's Skidmarks of Making.

Great job. You are a pillar of the community. Now if you could only make a DDoCast roleplaying segment that actually involves roleplaying. :D
