Oh and Tolero or someone with greater controls, could you change the title thread to DDOcast Episode 165 (4-24-10) - thanks if it's possible, no biggie if it's not.

If I was still playing I'd name two airships. One the Mar'ques Voyeur and the other The Goodship Crew.

Another good name would be The Dread Pirate Robert's ship (whatever its name was) and Prince Caspian's ship called The Dawn Treader. Then there's obvious ones like The Kraken, The Juggernaut, The Big Nines, The Black Pearl, Her Majesty's Grace, etc.

For short manning raids;
"Stealer of souls can be short maned. this last time we did it with 6 people"
I thought that was a 6 man quest. It operates like a want to be raid, but its just a 6 man quest.

I've 3 manned Tempest Spine before, as long as you have people that can open the doors to get the rune's your fine. Also short manned DQ and Revers. Von would be tricky I would think, as to me Von is the only raid where your forced to play as a group and actually feels like a raid. Except for maybe shroud but to a slightly lesser extent.


Excellent commercial too :D "Don't make me come over there and pwn you buttercup. I've got a magic missile with your name on it" Soooo much win. I almost fell out of my chair at work laughing.

Thanks for slamming Turbine on their +3 and single toon bank tab TP prices. Hopefully noone is buying the bank tab and they'll drop the price sometime soon or have an 80% off sale.

Good show overall. In theory Turbine was supposed to reveal the title of their upcoming MMO (that supports consoles) at the end of '09. Guess things got delayed. Still guessing Harry Potter on the 360/PS3/PC with DDO-Store-tech for all your wand/broom/robe customization spending needs.

YOu are correct. SoS is a 6 party, not a 12 party. It is not a raid, it just has a timer like a raid.

I don't believe there is a timer for Stealer of Souls unless one was recently added.

You do need to turn in 3 essences each time you run SoS though and those can be painful to acquire for some.

No timer.

The essences are actaully not nearly as bad as before either. As the end reward for SoS = 50 runes. 50 runes can buy you both 2 essences, and the third one can be obtained by a quick run thru of prey on the hunter (15min quest that pretty much only involves lots of running and 1 boss battle)

I like how lessah said it too, almost as if she was proud to have done it with ONLY 6 players, like it was a real challenge hehe :D Guess she honestly thought she was shortmanning a raid, kinda neat.

I mean how it's setup with the flagging and not allowing non-flagged members to enter is really odd for a quest.. So i can get the confusion. It really should of been a raid.

Yes... I don't know why I was thinking this is a raid. *facepalm* Total noob mistake. Granted, when I ran it, it was the middle of the night and I had never been there before. It's a crazy place!

Sorry about that!
Cheers!

Actually there is a timer for the objectives of defeating the elemental masters before Sorjek, if you do not beat them within the allotted time I think you fail (cannot verify that part since ive never seen the timer get too low.) The actual Sorjek battle is not timed but the Fire, Ice, and Air giant masters objectives a long with the beginning run to those masters are timed.
