Here is my take on Spellcraft I posted this about a week ago. http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=230887

Great show. I particularly enjoyed the part about the skills when you touched on Professions and Crafting skills. Thanks! I wrote a thread awhile ago about those needing to be in game, about how it would add another layer to our characters. It would. Considering how we won't be getting more levels for a long time, what better way to expand our characters to another level than with actual professions and crafting skills?

I agree it might be best to maybe have them on a separate tab on our character sheets rather than try to insert them into our existing skills selection. Although with reserrection now, it wouldn't be as much trouble to insert more skills to the list as it was before TR's.

I won't be holding my breathe seeing as the pattern with DDO crafting is cheesy crafting altars taking the place of actual effort into putting in a true D&D crafting system with profession/crafting skills for it. It is depressing since I see so much potential if they had the D&D crafting into DDO.

I link Lessah's going to have to chime in on this and clarify. Last I'd heard Morah and Jeets were through! But maybe she still has a soft spot for him. Like the jerk you broke up with that still makes you jealous every time you see him/her with that other person in the bar...

Oh my.... I will have to ask her about this and get her to clear things up.... but.. .if she thinks that she can get away with marrying Jeets WHILE he is asllep... I would not put it past her!

In fact.... what a GREAT IDEA!!!!!!!!!! Thanks Zaal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was invited to do the turbine survey. And honestly... Its just your generic survey. Nothing really about DDO, more your gaming history. Important... not so much. But hey, chance at free money is always nice.


Edit: Come to think of it... Don't know why they are so smoke and mirrors about it either... OR the whole hush hush NDA about it. It really is just turbine's "fight club"

Are you sure you were even allowed to say THAT?

The Mournlands NDA, for example, requires that you don't even MENTION you are in Mournlands...

If not I'll probably get infraction points and or never be invited back... But considering the survey thread had lots of people saying they got the email I should be fine. And I haven't gone into detail what was asked, so I should be okay. But for a DDO survey, with so much hush hush around it... I was expecting a survey with a bit more to do about DDO:rolleyes:
