Hi all... I was thinking of doing a fighter type or a cleric. What do you guys think?


THanks,

Hi all,

I'm still a newbie, but am very excited about this.

A fighter and a cleric sound like a good start to me, but what do I know! LOL

With your permission I'm looking at introducing Halrong TIPKAG to DDO.

She's quite short, nimble-fingered and has a good heart, even if she does get mesmerised by shiny things too easily :)

Hope to see you in the Wavecrest,

TIPKAG.

I did a fighter focused in intimidate and shield work. It's my first try with a melee defensive type. A cleric would be nice, Halek.

Great... I will start looking at some builds. Might do a WF Battle Cleric, but I will research some builds. Just let you know I only have 28pt builds right now.

Another Static group I am in has created a WebSite at GuildPortal, would you like me to start one for this group?

Don't worry, mine is a 28 pts too.

I don't know guildportal. If you could provide a link...

Anyway, go ahead and create it after we fill all spots and know who is what.

Well the link is http://www.guildportal.com/, the one thing we would have to figure out is name for this group. In my old pnp days, our groups name was:

Fellowship of the Finger
Ring of the Finger


If anybody else has a witty name that we can agree on that would be good.


Halek

tipkag
09-30-2009, 10:11 PM
Howdy - as a newbie I expect you already know i only have a 28 point build.

With respect to names, the logical progression of Halek's groups names would seem to be...

Nail of the Finger ? Fell free to ditch or use - just don't disown me because of the bad joke.

Roll on next week :)

i wouldnt mind starting a character up and running with you guys but i have something going on till about 9 est for a few more weeks. let me know if you would want to figure something out. i would be fine with joining you guys a little late if you guys are fine with it. not sure what i would make as of now but would make anything needed for the team. just let me know would love to join a dedicated team.

nibel
10-04-2009, 10:09 PM
I set this time just because is the same hour from my other group. If everyone agree, we can start at 9 PM. I'll put you in our 5th spot. Be welcome.

Halek and Tipkag, i need the name and race/class of your characters to update the first post, and know who i should call.

elgbaylor
10-04-2009, 10:46 PM
awesome and that time thing will only be for a few more weeks. taking the dog to obedience training. I am considering making a drow sorcerer but havent decided yet.

tipkag
10-04-2009, 11:59 PM
My character's name will be Halrong TIPKAG (A Halfling Rogue). Looking forward to it.

From your other posts - it looks like I will be the genuine newbie, having done the Korthos thing only once. I hope I don't hold you back too much.

See ya soon,

TIPKAG

Don't worry, when i start on my other group (on my sig), i was totally new to the game too. In fact, most of lvl 13+ quests i did once or none. Leading this group will be a challenge to me too.

Character added, Tipkag. If you need any help or tips on your build, just ask.

Halek
10-05-2009, 12:25 AM
Well created mine at it is going to be a Warforged BattleCleric name - Renrick Dragonsbane

nibel
10-05-2009, 12:35 AM
And about time? You two are ok with we starting 9 PM, so elgbaylor can join us from start? We can rearrange hour/day if needed and everyone agree too.

tipkag
10-05-2009, 01:42 AM
Thursday 8pm or 9pm makes no difference to me - it's still middle of the day friday here in australia - and I have most friday's off so that's perfect :)

We haven't heard from Chezen - he may be f2p? I couldn't post here until i became vip. Chezen if you need to email anything you can get me at rodwarcle at live period com period au

Or indeed if any of you want to email rather than pm me for whatever reason :)

nibel
10-05-2009, 01:49 AM
I sent a PM to him, i'll wait until our première before kick him from the group. A 4-people group is still strong enough to pass khortos.

I think he is a VIP, because i couldn't sent you a PM before you get VIP, and he was on the mass PM that tcmexman send to us, so...

elgbaylor
10-05-2009, 06:20 AM
if you create the character early do we skip the tutorial part or play thru it? and im going to make a drow sorcerer i think but havent figured out a name yet.

nibel
10-05-2009, 06:59 AM
Skip the tutorial, enter Wavecrest Tavern, and wait till thursday. :)

Halek
10-05-2009, 07:55 AM
Yes 9:00 is good for me, I just won't be able to stay as long as I normally would.


Oh Yeah... Anybody else have a sugestion for the name of our band of merry men...

I just was able to get some tickets to the Detroit Red Wings Season Opener against the Chicago BlackHawks tomorrow night. I won't be able to log on till probably 10:30 or 11:00 tomorrow night. So I guess I will have to show up late and/or make up the quests later in the week.


Again sorry for the short notice.

Halek/Renrick.

One of the things I miss most about my time spent in Canada is watching ice hockey as we call it down under - what you call field hockey is just hockey here.

The two teams I supported were the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings - strange combination I know but that's what you get when an Aussie starts watching - lol!

All of this is to say I completely understand, looking forward to meeting Renrick either late or soon :)

Halek
10-08-2009, 08:06 AM
Thanks Tipkag. I have been a fan of the Red WIngs for too many years to count. Tonight is going to be exciting with them playing the Black Hawks, should be a great game.

I will log on when I get home and hopefully be able to get some play time in with the crew.


Hope to see you all in game tonight,


Halek

ps. The quests I miss I will try and make up later.

Great night all, we have 2 newbies on the team, but i think they learned some helpful tips tonight. Chezen didn't contacted me until now, so i'm opening his spot. I'll update the first post with the quests done tomorrow or saturday.

And let Ala Rubra prevail over Khortos evil!

Everybody, be ready for tonight, 9 PM yet. Today we should finish Khortos storyline (maybe not Misery's Peak, let's see how the quests go) and sail to Stormreach.

Halek, did you finished the quests we did last week, and leveled to 2 already?

Nibel,

I finished most of the quests. I am not sure how far I got. I know I finished all the quests inside the village, and maybe Stopping the Sahuagin. I was going to get on an hour or 2 before and finish up those 1 or 2 quests.

Thanks,

Quest log updated with Necromancer's Doom and Sacrifices.

Yams want to join us, so i set him to our 6th spot. We're still deciding what he will do.

Next week, we will start at 8 PM EST (since Jeriico needed to leave early last and this Thursday), and we can repeat Sacrifices (good end rewards, i bet everyone wants an extra item, and we can get it on hard), and go to Misery's Peak finish that white dragon and set sail to Stormreach.

Thanks for taking me into the group, nibel.

I've elected to play a Warforged Wizard with a hint of Rogue named Blockade. If you all don't mind, I'd like to introduce him through a little story. No need to read it, it's just a long rendition of a short history.

A group of weary-looking humans walked into the noisy inn. Marfalcon eyed them over his ale as he slowly drank it--as slowly as a dwarf can, anyhow. He didn't need the wisdom gained over his hundred years or the experience from his days adventuring to tell him that this group had seen quite a scuffle, nor to tell that whoever they'd fought had borne the brunt of the damage. Despite their broken armor, filthy bodies, and still-bleeding wounds, they continued to push each other around and hurl playful insults regarding each others' ability, or inability, to hew down hobgoblins.

Marfalcon smiled to himself, recalling a time when he too scoured Khorvaire and Xen'drik for riches. Soon he found himself lost to dreaming, being pulled back to the world upon the words "Drinks for everyone, on us!" Marfalcon turned to see the human standing, and almost instinctively said, "Aye, I'll drink t’ that!" He downed the pint of ale that had only moments before been set before him.

The human grinned and gestured towards Marfalcon. "And two for this thirsty dwarf!"

Marfalcon let out a hearty laugh. "Now there's a lad what knows how t’ make friends!" He got up and moved over to the table the humans were at. "Tell me, what brings ye folks here? I can see the signs of battle on ya, and I could smell ya from where I was sittin’!"

"You have a keen eye..?"

"Wyrmsbane, Marfalcon Wyrmsbane. Artificer, if ye happen t' need me services."

The human laughed. "Of course, Master Wyrmsbane. I am Seviran; this is Uleri; and Galirahan." He nodded to his two companions. "Your sense of smell does not mislead you. We spent the last few days fending off hobgoblins from a couple wealthy merchants heading this way."

"So, yer mercenaries, are ye? No harm in making a little gold off the weakness of others, eh?"

"Indeed, and more than a little gold we made. But the fighting was difficult; we saw several men fall. Ill-skilled and ill-equipped fellows. Had no business being out there." Seviran shook his head in disgust.

"I tell ye, years ago I got one o' them Warforged t’ take with me when I traveled in dangerous parts. Called it Blockade, 'cause that's exactly what it did. Aye, it woulda stopped those hobgoblins dead in their tracks, a wall of arcane trickery."

“Why don’t you hire it out, then? You could make a good bit of gold in these times.”

Marfalcon nodded his head. “And I woulda, if everything had gone as I’d planned! I selected the materials fer it by hand, scavenged parts from deactivated Warforged, and built the parts I could not find. It was a laborious process, and took more’n a few years o’ my prime life, but when it was finished, after I paid an Archmage a pretty copper to imbue it with arcane ability, watched its eyes come alight and its body pulse with energy…” He shook his head; it almost looked as if a tear might come to his eye. “The common tongue has no words to do the feeling justice.

“I put it to good use, worked it enough to more’n pay fer what I put into it. Then it started t’ get curious. Started t’ ask questions about its freedom of choice, its soul, its life…even the Lord o’ Blades. I can’t prove a bloody thing, but I know it was that cursed elf cleric; devotes himself to the Lord o’ Blades, thinks all Warforged should find it and follow it. Pointy-eared propaganda preacher! I had t’ put up wards around the manor just to keep the damn thing from running away on me! It shoulda been out paying a hefty return, instead I had it cookin’ and cleanin’!

“’Course it wasn’t but a few months before I started to catch it eyeing those wards. I knew no good could come o’ it, so I put it through a process to rid it of its arcane ability.Without its magic, that construct had no way t’ bypass the wards.”

Uleri spoke up. “But without its magic, how would it be of use to you again? Perhaps one day you could have reconciled your differences with it and split the profit from contracts.”

The dwarf shook his head. “I told a bit of a half-truth back there, lad. That arcane power, once given, couldn’t easily be removed. I merely subdued it-- covered it--removed the Warforged’s memory of how to use it. That process could be reversed. Even on its own, something could happen to that thing that triggers an old memory, maybe the words fer casting a single spell. Only time would stand between that first memory and the recovery of its power in its entirety.

“Alas, I’ll never know what became of it. One day, Blockade just up and disappeared. I thought mayhap it had found some unwarded passage; perhaps it remembered some o’ its old magic; perhaps that damned cleric came and lifted me wards fer a moment. I looked fer days, but t’ no avail. Finally I found its exit: a seldom-used storage cellar with an outside exit. The lock had been picked, something I’d never taught it to do.” He stared into his drink, a sad expression, even by Dwarven standards, on his face.

Seviran struck the dwarf’s back with his palm. “Cheer up, Master Wyrmsbane…have another round. And if we see a spell-slinging Warforged that goes by the name of Blockade, we’ll subdue it and bring it back…for a price, of course.”

Marfalcon just smiled. “Nay lads, I wouldn’t want ya tryin’ that. Ye seem like good men, with a long life ahead o’ ya.” His grin widened. “No reason t’ cut it short on my account.”

DUN DUN DUN.

So, this mean that we will repeat Sacrifices on Hard, and do some slayer/explorer while we wait to do Misery's Peak with the full team. Looks like a nice plan to me.

Added Sacrifices and Misery's Peak to the list. Since we're not returning to Khortos anymore, then Khortos slayer/rare/explorer is open to anyone go and complete, if you want. The same can be said from the 5 solo quests on Harbor listed on page 1 as completed. After all that, i think everyone will be lvl 2.4.

Next week, 9 PM just to get Jerlaxle since start, and then we change our time definitively for 8 PM. If everything runs well, next week we can go to level 3.

nibel
10-26-2009, 08:56 AM
This week we will start 9 PM for the last time (I hope), and my plan is do both Leaky Dingly quests (Bringing the Light and Information is Key), Durk's and Butcher's.

After that, we will have enough XP to reach level 3, but we can continue on level 2 until we finish all level 2 quests, so we can sustain the challenge. But if the group prefer to level asap, then we can level on the end of the night run too.

Halek
10-26-2009, 11:38 AM
All -- I have updated the Quest Lists on the Web Site for the Sacrifices & Misery's Peak. I have to figure out how I am going to show Solo Quests.

Nibel,

It says we are not going to go back to Khortos Island. When do we go back for Favor, so we can get the extra backpack slot etc... Not sure if we will ever get enough favor, unless we do some of these quests again.

Rjedi & Yams,

When you are doing your builds, could you guys please add atleast 1 (maybe more) of WarForged Healer's Friends enhancements (if you haven't), so my healing spells will have some greater effect on you guys.

Halek/Renrick

Usually, we run the quests on their level. So, if we are on lvl 3, we do only lvl 3 quests, and so on. DDO have enough quests to run to cap without repeating any quest, so, with some exceptions (like we did with Sacrifices), we will run every quest on normal, and that's it.

Explorer zones are the exceptions, since we can't track exactly were everyone is. So, we can say "everyone have STK on normal", but not "everyone have 56 slayers on Cerulean Hills". But since explorer zones are a grindfest, we will enter only to check explorers, and if someone want to go back to fill slayer/rare, go ahead. They just need to remember to hold the level up, if you get to much xp.

I believe we all have enough XP to go to level 3, but we decided to stay on level 2 while we finish the other level 2 quests. And our time was changed permanently to 8 PM EST. Next week, we will meet on Wayward Lobster to finish all the others level 2 quests (Garrison's, Ringleader, and all wayward quests).

A wandering minstrel approaches your group as you sit around a tavern spending your hard-earned gold on food and drink. With a flourish, he introduces himself as Lochloinn mac Roibeard, a bard from distant lands seeking his fortune in Stormreach. He begins to spin for you a tale of the wizard Blockade, whom he encountered on his trip to the city. He tells you that Blockade was embarking on a pilgrimage to find the Lord of Blades. The time spent as Marfalcon's servant had kept him from developing a sense of purpose, and he hoped that the Lord of Blades could grant him at least that. After Lochloinn shared his own visions of adventure with Blockade, the wizard told Lochloinn of the travelers he was leaving behind, even going so far as to suggest which tavern they might be found in. The minstrel finishes his tale with a suggestion that he might continue seeking his fortune under the banner of Ala Rubra.

((tl;dr Blockade wasn't doing it for me so I've rerolled as a human soon-to-be-warchanter bard named Lochloinn.))

Added The Sunken Sewer and all Waterworks quests.

Since that's the 3rd week in a row that Rjedi couldn't play with us, I'm opening the 6th spot for someone else. To join, just came to level 3, read the rules of the group (first post), and say here what's your toon's name.

If someone wants to know what you're missing, we are more or less well rounded (Tank, caster, healer, buffer, trapmonkey), just do whatever you want to play. A melee DPS or a wizard would be better, but dont think you need to get one of those options to join.

nibel
11-22-2009, 01:47 AM
Added all Catacombs quests.

For next week, i heard that is a holiday on US (Thanksgiving, or something like that). Since me and Halrong weren't americans, then we probly will be playing. But if all the other 3 members are missing, i think it's better for us to skip this night, and get Cerulean done on the next week: 12/03.

RL issues come first in every instance. If you think you WILL be there, sitting in front of the game to play, then say so. If you cant be 100% on the game that night (because youre on a family reunion, or any other good holiday reason, iykwim (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IfYouKnowWhatIMean)), then avoid it and have your fun without worrying about do 2 things at the same time.

================================================== =========

Now, about tactics. Maybe i'm overreacting, and if i am, please, tell me.

I think Lochloinn is thinking too much in increase his kill count and putting his survivability in second place. On Catacombs i couldn't do much (because i couldn't intimidate the mindless undeads), so i saw that a little better. Many times i saw his life bar dropping. Fast. I'm not sure if was Renrick or himself who healed him to top every time, but the SP/heal was hurting us a little because of that. Ren was dried out of SP at least twice on that night.

The #1 rule about dedicated teams still is "play with whatever you want". You can have your warchanter melee bard DPS, just try to think better that the rest of the team is there to support everyone as a team. Your killcount isn't even being checked. Use cc spells, use Fascinate, beat the guy i'm blocking, and get agro from the ones hitting Halrong and Jerlaxe. You're doing great till now, but i'm afraid that when we reach the big hitters (Gwylan, Redwillow, Co6, Gianthold), your defenses aren't in par with your modus operanti.

Ren, remember me to donate some gold for wands (I think Loch will be our primary negotiator), so you and Loch can top us all between fights. Using mana to heal between fights isn't a smart use of SP, since your own heals are usually better than the ones we can get from pots and wands (for each healing spell having its own cooldown timer, and the first three having a smaller cooldown than wands), so wand-healing (less effective) must kick in when we don't have a big club swinging over our heads.

Halek
11-23-2009, 10:39 AM
This is good information for me nibel. I usually play Fighters & Monks, you guys are getting the on the job training cleric :) (sorry).

I forgot that Loch had Heals, so half the time I was hitting him as well as himself (so that was one issue that I have to work through). As you pointed out, it is better to pick up some of the wands (Cures and maybe some of the buffs) instead of using my sp.

As I said I am learning how to play a Cleric so if you see something I can do better, just let me know.


Thanks,

Halek/Renrick

not 100% sure if i will be able to play tomorrow. I will be driving home that night and have one other thing to do which might all happen before 8est. Im not sure when i am leaving tomorrow yet so it will depend on that.

As for the negotiator part i think I have the higher charisma score and therefore the higher haggle. Remind me to check that but if i remember right since he was a warchanter he didnt have as much points in charisma and therfore a lower haggle score.

Hey guys. I won't be on tonight. Sorry for the short notice.

As for tactics, I understand what you are saying, Nibel. I am still adjusting to playing a wimpy, TWF bard. I'm really used to playing in PUGs where there are no designated roles and everyone is expected to put out DPS. If you, or any of the group members feel that I'm being too aggressive, speak up right away. Don't let me drain Renrick's SP. Lochloinn mac Roibeard won't be responsible for a party wipe!

I won't have any CC spells until level 10 when I get Otto's Sphere of Dancing. In the meantime I can use Fascinate, but at the risk of not being able to keep up Inspire Courage on the group (remember my #songs is equal to my bard level). I'm sure I'll say this again in-game, but if I fascinate a group, please...no nuking or swinging a big ol' two hander around them! Pick them off one at a time.

Not sure what Jerlaxle's CHA mod is, but I know it is higher than mine. I don't start putting points in my Haggle skill until level 6 so we'll have to start comparing around level 8 or so. Let's also not forget that Giles Goodman can give Cure Light wands for for 2 Khyber Prayer Pamphlets, and Kipling Vranch gives Cure Mod wands for 2 Wavecrasher Cargo Manifests.

nibel
11-27-2009, 09:38 AM
Thanks for the replies, guys.

Yesterday, since only me and Halrong were there, we did a little slayer on Khortos, and nothing more. rjedi (Jeriico) asked to get back in the group, and i said if no one fill the spot till next week, then he can get a second chance.

About haggling, there isn't a big issue till lvl 8 or so (when we can buy more consumables without much trouble), i was just checking. Even if Loch dont get his Charisma up to the top, bards still have haggle as a class skill (more ranks), and haggle enhancs (at least haggle II isnt very expensive, which is equivalent a cha+4), and a human skill boost (+2~5), so i bet he can get a higher haggle than anyone at later levels.

Ren, try to carry 2 or 3 cure light wands with you when we start the night. If you need resources, just ask. I dont have any trouble giving you my plat for wands, and i doubt anyone will have any issues either. Sure, you can use cure mod wands, but they are effing expensive for our level by now. When you think you can go "up a level" on wand type, then go for it (probly about lvl 5 or 6). The same goes for cure serious wands.

Next week, lets start with Cerulean Hills explorer, and both quests there. If we still have time after that, then we should go for Kobold Assault, Swiped Signet, and Sacred Helm.

Halek
11-30-2009, 09:36 AM
I will go and purchase a couple of wands before thursday.

May I suggest that you do atleast one of the following:
1) It would be nice if everyone could go out and purchase a wand or 2 and bring it along and passed it to me lets say every 2 or 3 weeks.
2) Pass me some extra vendor trash weapons/armor for me to sell and buy wands.

And buy some extra cure potions so you can use that for healing as well.

I figure I will also purchase a Lesser Restoration wand as well.

See everybody on Thursday.

Oculto get the sixth spot. Were full again. Be welcome, Vanrhyen. You need to use this small red wing brooch on the lap.

About schedule, i'll be out 24 and 31 because of family reunions. Just like i said on thanksgiving, its better to focus on the RL issues instead of half-do two things at the same time.

oculto
12-06-2009, 05:09 AM
Well,

While I accomplished some quests to equal me to the group, I noticed that I had committed a calculation mistake and Vanrhyen now is in the level 4, but ready for the 5. I still have to conclude the "catacombs" series and I think that I will have too much of XP, compared to the others.
Can I continue playing with Vanrhyen or would be better to create another character? (I don't care in having to do the second option, but I prefer to play the elf)
About schedule, i'll be out 17 because job and 24 and 31 because of family reunions, too. Three weeks without game... If possible for all, we could play on Mondays (21 and 28) exceptionally. Like this I would just lose a session.
December is a quite difficult month. I hope all those occurrences don't invalidate my entrance to the group, but if you prefer, be the will to reopen the vacancy. If I can continue, the following months my readiness is total.

Vanrhyen disconnected without alerts before we could start Kobold Assault, but we finished it. Next week, we will try to end all lvl 3 quests (Redfang, Signet, Splinterskull) and start the lvl 4 chain. We have a lot of classics on lvl 4 waiting: Depths on House D, Sharn Syndicate, STK, more Splinterskull quests, and Proof is in the Poison.

As we decided after ending the quests, next week will be our last this year. Most of us will be out for xmas-new eve night, and its beter to save the nights for RL issues. We will meet again in 2010.

Hi all...

Well we hit a rocky week and my wife went back into the hospital. To make a long story short, she is comming home today from her 2nd hospital stay and will need in home IV antibiotics. The home nurses are coming tonight to show us how to administor it and I am not sure what time I will be able to log on. I will try and be there as soon as I can tonight.


Thanks,

Halrong laughs quietly to herself - whenever the Halfling Traders capture her to take her home and put her albinism on display as a curiosity, they make the mistake of thinking locking her up in the dark will actually keep her their prisoner.

This group has at least learnt to bind her hands as well and to weigh her frail body down with shackles, so it will take her longer than normal to escape and return to her friends in Stormreach.

After hours of delicately manouvering her fingers, the bindings from her hands fall silently to the floor....

((Work has called me in this week for the whole day so I won't be in today :( Sorry for the late notice. Halek my best to your wife))

Tomorrow, the plan is to finish Assault on Splinterskull, and go to 3 Barrel Cove and do Garl's Tomb series.

Halrong's aristocratic family was sick of the shame of having a living albino relative - who refused to be shut up in an institution and was gaining a reputation for herself - no less!

Their hired thugs eventually caught up with her - held her down, uncovered her head, glued her eyes open and directed the sun's rays towards her eyes with their looking glasses.

They watched as she squirmed, screamed and convulsed in agony. When she could not fight any longer she focused her mind's eye on the wonderful adventures she had with Ala Rubra and passed peacefully knowing that she had found kindness and friendship in this world.

((Hi all, I'm sorry to do this to you but I've had to increase my hours at work and go to full time so I will now be working Fridays regularly so I can't play any more. Undoubtedly, you'll find a more competent trap monkey to replace me, but I will miss you all - and will still check this thread on the forum from time to time to see how it's all going)).

Next week we will do the full Delara's Tomb chain (4 quests), and if we have time, Dead Girl's Spellbook and Devil Assault.

We tried to investigate Delara's sanctum, but the massive amount of undeads wizards threw us off the place. We will return later when we get stronger (Delara's has been postponed for our lvl 7).

Next week we will get a warm up exploring the entire Searing Heights, and then we will defeat some Devil Assault.

Now we are short on 2 members. Vanrhyen took some vacations and returned to Valenar to improve her dual blade skills. Lochloin took the same boat to the same place at the same time.

Hi! I'm the silly monk (Yzette) that RenigadeWolf mentioned. :D

I had a blast running with you guys last night even though I was literally half your level (7 vs. 14). But hey, I even managed to kill a few things, and only died once when I got lost swimming in a tunnel and drowned. It was very reminiscient of the raids my old EQ guild used to run (an RP guild that also got very good at raiding). I made 8th shortly after we finished, and I don't think getting to 11 will take us too very long at the rate we've been going. Thanks again for welcoming us! :)

Quest log updated with Feast or Famine, Foundation of Discord, and Trial by Fire.

Since Zully was missing last week, the original plan is unchanged for the next one: Repeating Undermine, and doing Siegebreaker. Then, we will park at gianthold for a while.

Quest log updated with Undermine and Siegebreaker. And we leveled to 17. Congratulations to us all.

Tomorrow we will hit the big 3 on Gianthold, starting with Crucible, and maybe Madstone if we have time for it. Also, be ready for a relic check so we can determine how far are we from opening the Tor (we should have a few from the standalone quests we did).

It appears that Zully will be late on the 25-August, if he is able to make it. Expected delay could be 1/2 to 1 hour minimum. Zully will make every effort to reach Stormreach, but can make not guarantees.

Just to get everyone informed, my connection is really, REALLY bad the last month. I'm thinking into changing service provider, but I'm waiting a reply if I have to move out because of my job. So, until I post it on forums or appear into game night, don't wait for me.

Any news, I'll post here. I'll put Gineon on charge of the team until I'm back.

Just to update, we joined Belle's Team and did ADQ1 and ADQ2.

First we tried Hard and she rout us, as we were just in 6.

After we tried on normal with a sucessfull victory.

Me, Nema and Yz completed Crucible on Normal.

Herweg probably still with same problems, and Zully on his trip.

Next week we will try Madstone to be flagged to fight that hooligan dragons and his giants.

Has been one month since my last update, and two months sice the last time I logged into the game. Brazilian mail and banking services were on strike, and that slowed my new motherboard purchase. Said that, my processor is a bit old, and I had a hard time to fid something that fits all my other pieces.

Add to that the lowering value of VIP subscription, and me discovering that I can spend 2 months without playing DDO. So, I took the personal decision of giving up DDO until 2012. And doing that, I hope our team find a suitable replacement for Herweg. The free nights will help with other personal projects.

If Gineon wants, I can update the first post anytime he report to me the quests done. Dont take more than 5 minutes per week. Or you guys can merge with Belle's team. Up to you.

This team was great. That's more than 4 years I'm acompaning this game. If (when) I return, I'll check if any team have a spot for me, if I have the free time for it.

Thanks everyone, and have fun.

It's sad read this from you.

I'll try keep our group up and recruit more people to join us and keep our schedule on, as you come back if we have a spot you will be always welcome.

And sorry for last week, I was a lot busy and as forum was offline I was unable to advise you about it.

This week I pretend return to GH and flag to raid with guys that come online.

We had Belle help and defeated the dragons on TOR and are RAID ready.

Next week we will join forces with Belle's team and try defeat that giant.

starting next week we will start our meet one hour more soon as agreed for all.

Sorry guys, last night I was engaged at work and cant log in.

Next week I will be on work also and will not show up as well.

You fell free to schedule as you wish on quests, but for me will be a little hard to work, I will be able to log in just on 29th december when I think you guys will be a little busy like last year. I'd like to know from you if possible.

I think I can speak for the group when I say that Ala Rubra welcomes Vanlith, Fararn, and Arano!

In practice, we were teaming up quite frequently anyhow. This brings our team membership to seven. I am sure this will not be a problem, because it is a rare night indeed when SOME one or other has to skip. (In fact I will likely be a little late this week due to a birthday dinner for a relative.)

I would like to point out, as I said before, that while we are glad to have the company of our Thursday night bretheren, it is regrettable that this comes because of the loss of the time with Bellecosa. Belle, your name suited you, your company and skills were always appreciated, and you are welcome to visit anytime you find free time.

Long ago I was the DPS of the first Ala Rubra (aka Vanrhyen). I migrated to Belle's team due a loss of their healer, since in the time Ala Rubra was with 6 members.

Now I'm back to the group where I came to know the Dedicated Teams. It's nice thinking that we have a solid group, but it's sad that we get this "solidness" due the lost some friends.

Well... long life to Ala Rubra and the dedicated teams. Let's honor the memory of Herweg and Bellecosa, and the all others who joined our forces for some time. ;)

I'll be late 20~30 min this week and next one due to work. But will log in if nothing worse happen.

We will try flag Nema to Shroud and then I will try call some friends to help us to defeat this raid. One of them will be Herweg, he confirmed to me that will help us.

Nicolas had a very high fever (40ºC). We rushed him to hospital, but the doctor didn't identify any disease.
After the fever goes down, we went home. Apparently it's okay now. It was only a scare.

And I had only 2 hours of sleep last night.

Last night we flagged our Barbarian to Shroud doing again Let Sleeping and Ritual Sacrifices on Hard. All visited our trainers to work hard to learn new abilities and are now Level 19.

Next week Nema will be missing and we plan to continue our last hunt on Reaver Refuge to stop the devil plan of the lich toward the dragons' souls.

After that we will try a Shroud run with a help of our last member Herweg and other friends that we met last week when we tried defeat Sulomades and failed.

Well guys, I have a good new and a really really bad one.

The good one is that i got my VIP back. :)

Now the bad one and the explanations:

Last night we had a little visitor at home, and my wife started to scream like a class B horror movie. All this for a tiny mouse that I grabed by the tail.

But that event started a second discussion about my gaming time. And, finally, we agreed that we both need to make some concessions.

That being said, it is with regret that I say I'll have to leave the Thursday Night Team. I'll still playing with Tuesday and Sunday teams, being part of Dedicated Teams, but need my thursdays less restricitive.

Thank you all for the time enjoying a good game and company, but real life sometimes needs our priority.

It was just me (Yzette), Nemamiah and Zully tonight. We did Weapons Shipment in Amrath. Got our butts kicked on Normal, tried again on Casual and beat it. A mass destruction type and a live bard would've helped a lot. None of us had been to Amrath before, very interesting though desolate and dangerous place.

I dunno how people are with the xpack, but the plan is to try beat shroud again and try something else.

If all have the xpack we can explore it. If no, we will try something else, like reavers. We are thinking in continue on shroud runs+something else until we complete our GS itens.
