We've merged with the other Thursday night DT group. Please check out their team thread at: http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=204148. It was a great 2 years running with everyone.


We are a static group that meets on Thursday nights at 8:00 PM EST (UTC -5) on Sarlona and generally play for 2-3 hours. We are part of Thalion’s “Dedicated Teams Guild.” and are a light RP group. Tactical and steady is the best way to describe us...not to say if we all know the quest very well…and all agree, we can speed it up a bit, but we keep together as a team!

A few simple rules that can be examined from time to time as we go along:

1) Stay together.

2) No twinking, but you can buy and sell on the AH (ask the group if anyone needs first)

3) Vendors are ok to buy from and sell too also

4) Light to med Role Play…((don’t let this scare u off, it’s fun, try it!)) in –Character will be normal party type…out of character will be ((here )) again don’t let this scare ya…easier then ya think. Keep Voice chat to a min. only use if have too.... ie…raids, big trap ahead..etc, etc….

5) The DDO store! ((cosmetics, storage bags and tomes are fine))

6) This is a Dedicated/Static Team…. Don’t use the character outside the party nights. If you miss a night or two, and need to catch up with XP ,or quest, that is fine…but keep it to a minimum.

7) Have fun! Don’t let small things stress you out! It’s a game lets enjoy it!

That should be it for rules…I don’t wanna lay a lot down…we can change as we need.

Game night! Hoping to see all your smiling faces as we take on the hobgoblins in Tangleroot.

The team is still looking for 2 more members of any class. Post here or send me a PM if interested.

Khayvan
02-05-2010, 08:00 PM
Ruffhouse - Warforged fighter.

I'll get to working on him this weekend and be caught up with you guys by Thursday. :)

Xgemina
02-06-2010, 01:22 PM
Glad to have you onboard Ruffhouse! Fararn will be pleased as now there will be a larger object for all of us to hide behind. Will be looking forward to meeting and adventuring with you soon.

Khayvan
02-08-2010, 11:03 AM
Ruff is up to lv 4.1 now. I'll be on tonight and tomorrow night after 7pm EST if anybody has an alt and wants to run around with me. Shoot me a tell and let me know who you are. :)

I'll probably be hitting waterworks tonight, then whatever else.

I see that you guys ran Neco 1. I picked it up but haven't run it before, so I'd like some help with that as well.

And a quick question: Was the Sharn Syndicate series skipped on purpose?

Xgemina
02-10-2010, 05:15 PM
I met up with Khayvan last night and got Ruffhouse into the guild. It was a pleasure chatting you and I'm looking forward to getting everyone together next Thursday.

Ruffhouse and Bellecosa will be on tonight (Wednesday 2/10) around 1900 to run through Tangleroot. If anyone has an alt they would like to play, feel free to join us.

Xgemina
02-10-2010, 10:51 PM
We have a rogue and he's a dwarf so Dimary won't be lonely. Menzies will be joining the team tomorrow night. Bellecosa is happy since she missed all of you last week.

------------------------------

Menzies is an F2P player so I'm not sure he can post here in the team thread. He's working on leveling up and hopes to be at least lvl 3 tomorrow night. Probably be working with him this weekend to get him up to lvl by next week.

Khayvan
02-11-2010, 09:48 AM
I had a great timing smacking some hobgoblins alongside Bellacosa. Can't wait to meet the rest of the group tonight.

I'll be on about 7 EST to finish the last couple TR quests before we officially begin. Does the group have a pre-arranged meeting spot?

Xgemina
02-11-2010, 03:32 PM
We really haven't set up a favorite drinking...err, meeting spot for the team. Generally we are running about getting a few things done as everyone logs on and we gather up via guild chat.

I will be on early to meet up with Menzies first and then Ruffhouse to finish TR.

Xgemina
02-11-2010, 11:01 PM
We welcomed Ruffhouse and Menzies to the group tonight and had a great time. Menzies, you did a great job on the traps while being 3 levels under the quests. I think Fararn and Bellecosa will be hard pressed to keep up with Ruffhouse.

--------------------------------------------

Menzies, I forgot to give you my email address before I left. You can get a hold of me at xgemina[at]yahoo[dot]com. Let me know when you'll be on and I'll try to make it.

Khayvan
02-12-2010, 08:20 AM
I had a great time last night! I am super impressed with this group and proud to be a part of it.

Thank you guys for accepting me. :)

Can't wait for next week.

Hey all sorry I missed Thurs. we had a snowstorm blow thru that knocked out the power
for a couple days. Power was turned back on last night now my computer is dying, keeps
flashing to a windows blue screen. I'm trying to get everything back up and running, hope
to back running with you all next week.

Fararn

Xgemina
02-15-2010, 07:34 PM
Thought it was a bit strange that you didn't post that you were going to miss last Thursday, Fararn. I updated the quest list on the first post for what we did.

If nothing else, please try to knock out Tangleroot 1 and 2 so we'll all be on the same page for next Thursday. We're running it again on elite for a 2nd chance at some of the end reward goodies.

PTR91
02-17-2010, 06:30 PM
Well it looks like I've got everything back up and running. I'm going to try and hit Tangleroot 1&2 a little later, if anyone wants to join in just look me up (I'll probably be on around 9pm)

Fararn

Xgemina
02-18-2010, 01:30 PM
Game night tonight!

Looking forward to seeing everyone on tonight and work on finishing up TR on elite. We'll cast our eyes towards House Jorasco and Delera's next week.

Khayvan
02-19-2010, 10:48 AM
This is such a great group. You guys are excellent players and I am having a blast running with you all.

I am really proud to be part of this team. :)

Xgemina
02-26-2010, 11:19 AM
This is such a great group. You guys are excellent players and I am having a blast running with you all.

I am really proud to be part of this team. :)

I agree with you Kayvan. I'm having a blast playing with everyone.

Great job running Delera's last night. We'll finish up Necromancer next week and then look at Redwillow and Gwylands. After that we may hit some of the other quests in House P or move onto Sorrowdusk for Greymoon and CO6.

Let me know if there is anything you would like to explore and we'll work it into our list.

PTR91
03-04-2010, 11:23 AM
Sorry all, I probably won't be on tonight. My wife had a death in her family and the services are this evening.

Fararn

Khayvan
03-04-2010, 11:46 AM
My condolences to your wife and the family.

We'll see you next week, bud.

Xgemina
03-04-2010, 06:15 PM
Please add my condolences to your wife and family as well.

We'll backtrack to the harbor tonight and work on Coinlord favor for the 5th pack slot. We are starting to get into the quest range where collapsed portable holes begin to drop so having 150+ Coinlord favor will be handy.

When Fararn returns next week we'll finish Delera's and move on from there.

THOTHdha
03-04-2010, 06:47 PM
My sympathy goes out to you and your family, Fararn.

Dimary won't be around this evening either, or at least not until very late. I got home to find that my furnace has gone out. It's supposed to be cold enough here that I'm worried about the pipes freezing over night, so I've got the service guys on their way now.

Xgemina
03-04-2010, 10:09 PM
No problem. We had Shotski from Rest in Pieces join up with us tonight as we ran Waterworks on elite for Coin Lord favor. Most of us have the 2nd rank of Coin Lord favor now for the 5th pack slot. I will be on this weekend if anyone needs help running the favor.

We should also all be around ~25k from level 8 right now.

PTR91
03-08-2010, 06:02 PM
Thank you all for your kind words. I'm looking forward to running with you all agian Thurs.

If any more groups are forming send me a PM on the forums. I'd be interested in doing a static group thursday nights.

Xgemina
03-11-2010, 11:09 AM
Game night! We're looking at finishing up Delera's with the Necromancer and then help a young Jorasco lass with the Redwillow incident. We may continue to assist House Jorasco in regards to a wight problem before heading over to Gwylands. It will depend on how much time we have tonght after Redwillow.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We missed our casters tonight. Ruffhouse, Fararn, Menzies and Bellecosa hacked their way through wights, hobgoblins, giants, minotaurs and lots of elves tonight with the help of a hireling cleric - dwarf, of course. We did skip Necromancer again but not next week. Belle wants her shiny cartouche.

PTR91
03-13-2010, 06:44 PM
I'm going to try to be on at about 7:30 or 8 Sunday evening if anyone is around and wants to try and lvl.

Fararn

Xgemina
03-14-2010, 12:28 PM
Well, I'll be on today at that time Far, but I'll be getting ready for my Sunday night Warforge group. Sorry!

Khayvan
03-18-2010, 01:48 PM
I've been sick all week and just not really feeling up to a game yet. I'll see everybody next week.

Xgemina
03-18-2010, 06:04 PM
Completely understand. I've been fighting the crude myself and finally feeling better today. We'll miss your sword, but never fear, we'll be here next week when you come back.

Xgemina
03-20-2010, 01:39 PM
Last Thursday it was Menz, Far and Belle. We broke down to the temptation and ran Necromancer for Delera. If you can find a group for it before next Thursday, go ahead and run it. If not, we will repeat it on 3/25.

Looking to run the 1st part of LoTD (the crypts) on hard/elite next week to get everyone on the same page for the trinket. Then we may skip out to Sorrowdusk for Grey Moon/CO6.

Arth, Dim - I hope everything is ok. It's been a couple of weeks now without word from either of you. Please let us know what is up - either here or in a PM.

Khayvan
03-25-2010, 08:42 AM
I'll definitely be there tonight but I haven't had a chance to catch up. :( Ruff is still sitting just shy of 8th level and I need to finish Delera's.

Xgemina
03-25-2010, 06:42 PM
Bad news boyos. Belle isn't going to be able to make it tonight. I'm stuck at work and it doesn't look good for me to get out of here before 2230 CDT.

Please run Thrall of the Necromancer to get everyone on the same page as far as Delera's goes. After that, go where ever your boots take ya. Also, please let me know if Dim and Arth make it. If they don't we'll need to do some recruiting.

I'm sorry I won't be on tonight and will look forward to seeing everyone next week.

Khayvan
03-26-2010, 08:42 AM
I didn't see your post 'til this morning, but nobody else showed up last night. I hung around 'til about 8:15 EST and then called it a night.

Ah well, we'll get on the same page next week. :)

Xgemina
03-27-2010, 07:35 PM
Ach, sorry about that Ruffhouse. As you said, we'll regroup next Thursday.

It looks like Dimary and Arthlodone have found different paths. I have not heard from either of them in 3 weeks. I just hope they didn't end up in some kobold's cooking pot.

With that said, looks like we are recruiting again. Looking for 2 adventurers to fill our ranks and assist us in exploring Stormreach and it's environs. A healer and finger-waggler would be the best, but if you are interested, let us know here or via PM.

PTR91
03-28-2010, 08:49 PM
Sorry I missed ya Ruff, I logged on a little late due to some computer issues. I ran into Menz and he told me you had just logged off. I may be a little late next Thurs. my son has little league practice.

Fararn

Khayvan
03-29-2010, 10:21 AM
Well shoot. :( Sorry I missed you guys.

Too bad about Dim and Arth, they're fun guys to play with. Hopefully we can get some new recruits soon.

Xgemina
04-08-2010, 03:15 PM
Game night tonight! Tonight we hit the Bloody Crypt and upgrade our Silver Flame trinket. Afterward, we will go to House K and start the lower level quests there. Let me know if there are any specific quests you would like to do as well.

-----------------------------------------------

We are still recruiting for 2 slots in the group. We're primarily looking for a healer type and an arcane (who isn't afraid or annoyed to cast the occasional repair spell), but we can probably work around anything. Currently we are level 8 and can help anyone level if they are lower. If you are new to the game or a vet; VIP or F2P you're welcome to join.

If you are interested: post to this thread, PM me, catch me in game or send me an email at xgemina-at-yahoo.com.

Xgemina
04-14-2010, 04:57 PM
Well, after rampaging through the Kundarak ward last week, we will take a look at a couple of the ones we missed in the Marketplace. Make sure to bring your acid resist tomorrow for the Quickfoot surely love their acid arrows and traps.

Khayvan
04-15-2010, 09:25 AM
*Ruff scribbles a note to himself*

"No more ale-flavored acid resist pots. Menz keeps drinking them."

We still on for the Sentinels quests tonight? I picked up the pack and I've been waiting to run it so I can do it the first time with you guys.

Xgemina
04-22-2010, 11:41 AM
Game night tonight! Yes, we are looking to do the Sentinels chain tonight. Bellecosa is Looking forward to kicking some pirate booty tonight.

Had a great time last night with the new quests. Looking forward to seeing the end quest next week.

We have a couple of players express interest in our group over in the f2p guild forum http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?p=2916998#post2916998. Check out the thread and let me know if you might be on this weekend to help them catch up to us.

Darn it I didn't check this thread in time or I would have helped. Sorry. :(

How's things looking with the prosepctive new members?

I spoke to my friend that I mentioned, but his work schedule still won't allow him to commit to a regular group run, so that's a no-go.

No worries, it was a bit of a wash. I didn't run into anyone this weekend and neither of the two players have posted to the recruitment thread or PM'd with any additional info.

Ready to roll, boss! Looking forward to finishing the chain.

On the subject of the Sentinels, I'd like to share this... When we ran the first parts the other night, they were very easy and we blew through them. I subsequently began another run with a different toon and it was an absolute nightmare! Bargain of Blood was the first and only one we did, I was so frustrated I had to log out afterwards and take a break.

Had a level 10 in the party, not only was he costing us 25% XP but lost us the additional 10% with the first of his 6 (SIX!! :eek:) deaths. That's after getting 3/4 of the healing from my FvS...

It just really, really made me appreciate this group even more. :)

Welcome to our ranks Chakotay! I hope you had as good of a time Thursday as the rest of us did. We'll be sure to introduce you to our smelly, sneaky little dwarf next time.

Still have 1 slot open in the team. A wiz/sorc providing some magical back-up would be cool, but not absolutely necessary. If anyone knows someone looking for a static group, you can mention us :)

I have good news and bad news. Good news is I seem to be winning the war against the crud. I was feeling well enough to get online last night for a couple of hours and found a letter from Menzies.

Bad news is Menzies will not be able to be the team's regular rogue. Due to some real life issues, his evenings are no longer as free as they once were.

We'll miss ya Menz, our fat lil' dwarven rogue/paladin - who swore he wasn't a paladin - may the ale and the beautiful, bearded ladies flow constantly in your future.

Last night was kinda quiet with just Belle and Fararn. Belle made lvl 10 running around Sorrowdusk. After that I hopped on Rokku and we ran through Gwyland's Stand.

I have good and bad news for the group. The good news is we have a wizard. Arano will be joining us next week or the week after depending on how much xp he can get. Currently he is level 5.

Unfortunately, we also lost a member. Ruffhouse/Khayvan is having to drop from the group. I'm sorry to see him go, he was fun to group with, a good team member and player.

I think we'll put an LFM tonight and see if we can't get anyone that doesn't read the forums and has a lvl 9-13 out there looking for a static group. Who knows, we may luck out.

I did notice that another Thursday group is forming up, maybe that will be one of our options.

Hello.
TBH, this sounds like fun. I have a lvl 12 assassian Rogue, bit weak in the monkey side, but im working on it. I have Vale, GH, Sands, Carnival and Devils Assult packs. I have no issues with any of the 1st post rules/issues for this toon. Im on Agro tho, not sure if I quallify or am on right server tho. Have been looking for this kind of group and would be willing to roll new toons just for such on a dif server if needed, and Im always a rogue, just finding my fav build atm. Thurs nights are a good 4 to 6 hour night for me from about 6pm(-7gmt)mnt till I decide I have to go to bed because I work in the morn :p.

Sooo, umm, theres my app? lol

Hope that helps out Oculto, they prob goin to ask for a dxlog and then will tell you a couple drivers out of date and to check your firewall settings. with each update its changes and sometimes your firewalls get in the way. Hope you find the cause of your pain, and can get it fixed :D

02-25-2011, 10:38 AM
Yah... already sent the DXlog with the ticket. The firewall settings of my network are configured to give priority to my game ports.
Update my hardware drivers is a chance to fix. I'll try it this evening, but it's annoying this just happen after the festival update. Before was all ok.

Well... I'll try the shot with the drivers.

oculto
03-01-2011, 11:24 AM
Seems that I can fix the lag problem. After four days of analysis with the Turbine Support I received the following instructions:

Under the [Display] section make the following changes:

* Change "AllowFakeFullScreen=True" to False
* Change "SyncToRefresh=False" to True
* Verify that the number following "Resolution=" matches your current Windows desktop resolution.
* Change "Antialiasing=" to Disabled if set to 2x/4x etc. (e.g. Antialiasing=Disabled )

Under [Troubleshooting] change the "MaximumFrameRate" option to 57 (i.e. MaximumFrameRate=57 )

Exit the file and choose yes when prompted to save prior to launching the game to test these settings.

Some additional settings changes can be made from the in-game Options menu:

* Under "ADV Graphics" disable the "Player Mesh Combining" setting
* Lower the "Player Crowd Quality Control" slider to 0
* Under Audio if currently using a "Hardware" mode, change this to one of the "Software" settings and ensure that "Use EAX" is disabled
* Under the Troubleshoot section lower the Engine Speed to Medium


I think this means that the lag is provided by some issue between the game and my video card (a Geforce 9800GT). What is annoying that the issue started only after the festival update, maybe by some file change incompatibility.
I'll try the procedure this evening, but seems will be all ok for next Thursday.

Cya.

I don't know if I'm satisfied with the way that I took for Van's evolution. I was thinking, but still uncertain, in reincarnate and change the fighter level that I got. :confused:

I just want to know if I can do (based on group rules), or if it's better to leave how it is now.

Yes, reincarnations (lesser and greater) are permitted in the group. So if you want to go ahead and change out Van's fighter level, swap it for a paladin or monk level or two or go pure, it's up to you.

As far as lots of 10+ lvl quests still not done; not surprising. There is so much xp available in the lower levels these days along with the fact we've hit a couple of the really good xp quests a couple of times (flagging and such) that we've really not done much above 10.

Hopefully that will change after the next few sessions. We have the 2nd part of the Droaam quest chain plus Giant Hold and the Mench Desert waiting for us. I'm sure Nibel will be making noise soon about doing Reaver and Demon Queen soon, so we'll be hitting the higher quests soon.

Sorry I had to jump ship right after Feast or Famine Thursday. My downstairs neighbor didn't know there were cut-offs under her sink. I'm not exactly sure how she did it, but the handle on the cold water side of the kitchen sink faucet was missing (I never found it) and she had a beautiful little fountain going. :D I got the water shut off and called the landlord for her.

Afterward, she thanked me and offered to make me something or bake some cookies for me. But after seeing the condition of her kitchen :eek: I politely declined.

I hope you all have a good weekend and I will see ya next week.

well Arano made it! 16 woot! ty van and far for the help...we just did slayer in Vale, and we stepped into the palace of lordmarch...did Assult on Summerfield on accident before we realized we had not run that chain yet :p oops..but now worries no one pulled the cool bard cloak ....cept for arano and van...but no one else...I.E. Far. we ended the night on that note so we can rerun with belle.

Herweg's team did succeed with snake womans court so we are good to go for the raid whenever we are ready.

till next week all.

And it's about time! You know, Van and Far are probably level 17 now :D

07-08-2011, 06:29 AM
Well, some things about our last battle against Velah. (I don't have large experience with, but let me state my "healer" vision. :rolleyes:)

1- Melees, try to stay together. Is better for mass heal. The dragon attacks are so wide ranged there is no point on flanking tactics.
2- Arcanes, prepare your ice (or no fire) spells. Always wait the cooldown behind that "stone shield" in the field.
3- Healers (me included), learn to use your offensive spells and learn to map the field. (This last one for me mostly. Sometimes I tried to heal, but get blocked by the same stone i use as shield. Sorry about that.)
4- All, death usually comes in mass. So, if you die, get close to the healer and wait behind the "stone shield" in the field, where the healer usually is. Rez spells has some casting lenght and cooldown. Cast it in the open field may cause the healer's death. Btw, rez in front of the dragon, where you may show up with 10% of your HP, is useless.

Plz, let me know if i'm saying bull****s. :D

Xgemina
07-09-2011, 11:42 AM
No bs, you have some good points there Van. The melees do need to stick close for the mass cures. Tell the melees who you are centering on and they will stick together better.

Mass heal takes so long to cast, you may want to alternate your MCMW and MCSW instead - faster cast time, less cool-down. If you don't have a Sup Pot VI item by now, let me know. Next time we'll work it out with Nem so you are alternating - also, one of you should toss a mass protect now and then.

I didn't see where you and Nem were set up, but there is a niche just in and to the left of gate when you enter the final battlefield. That's where I always park my caster cleric. It gives you LOS and range to Velah's head where the melees should be. It's also (was) just outside her breath range.

Next time we go in, we will certainly bring her down. Better be a dang SoS waiting for me in that chest.

11-05-2011, 09:41 AM
lol, good old banishment. No bug that I know of, it's just hard to get it to land in some situations.

It's a bit misleading showing a DC of 45 in your screen shot there. The mob gets to subtract its HD/lvl from it. So, the air ellies were probably 20-25 HD so their actual DC was 20-25 (will). Unfortunately, air ellies have a pretty good will save (they bumped it up recently it seems) so they probably had a +10-15 will save...bringing it down to making it on a 5 or better. That is a bit of pure WAG, but it certainly seemed that way. Did you notice that not many were getting caught in Arano's dancing balls either...also a will save.
