Hi everyone!


Doing something different this week for the long Thanksgiving holiday. The following is a two-parter featuring all of the "Crunchy Bits" in one place! Sigfried and Anne did an amazing job with these, and I've had numerous requests to put all 26 of the segments together and release it.


I figure long road trips for Thanksgiving and the introduction in recent months of new players to DDO makes this is a great time to finally get this done. New players and veterans alike will get a lot out of this - here's the crunchy stuff! Presented by Anne and Sigfried on DDOcast, here's a treasure trove of useful advice and information and a great way to delve deeper into DDO!


This is a lengthy show. I've split it into two parts, each a little more than two hours long. Consider this both a "show" and an archive, a reference spot for the future.


Listen in parts or as part of a long road trip, enjoy!


All of the Crunchy Bits show notes can be found HERE (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=127352).


Visit DDOcast.com for any and all of the episodes in which these originally ran. Approximately September of 2007 through August of 2008. With just a few exceptions, all of the information contained within is accurate as of the time of production. Keep in mind that lots of rules have changed in DDO over time. Still, a ton of good information is here.


Thanks Sigfried and Anne for your hard work and research.


Jerry

Makes me want to go back and listen to the early ones, seems like a lot has changed. Which i guess is an issue with MMOs, things change so much as time goes on.

Love the show by the way. :)
