View Full Version : Gingerspyce's Week in Videos: EE Raid Tanking, Master of the Wilds and Crucible!

01-15-2016, 01:04 AM
I have lots of videos to share with you this week! The Voodu Warlock series is getting deep into epic levels and I'm starting to hone my warlock tanking skills, learning how to leverage the temporary hit points that warlocks use to keep healed. I also test out some things on Gingerspyce after Update 29.

Voodu Warlock

In episode 23, I take on the Truthful One in EE Fall of Truth. This was my first time going against the Truthful One on a warlock and the video was made while the level cap was still 28. See how Voodu performs in Voodu Warlock ep. 23: Level 28 Tanking Truthful One in EE Fall of Truth (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9elSvUoPg2w).

In episode 24, Voodu goes face to face with Aurgloroasa in EE Temple of the Deathwyrm. Things start to go a little sideways during the end fight, so I get a chance to test out Voodu's durability a little more than expected in Voodu Warlock ep. 24: Level 28 Tanking EE Deathwyrm (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lxc7VNTLBg).

Got Crucible? The Crucible is a terrifying quest for newbies and I used to avoid this one like the plague, as many DDO'ers out there still do. I decided to do a crucible video to make the quest more accessible and less scary to others. This is a great one to know how to solo to farm for some of the really nice gear that drops from the end chests. If you're still leery of stepping foot in this quest, check out Voodu Warlock ep. 25: Level 26 How to Solo EE Crucible below:



After Update 23 "Armor Up", Gingerspyce's tanking ability got a big boost. But after the subsequent adjustments to PRR and the balance pass last October, Ginger could no longer stay with the EE Fire on Thunder Peak dragons during the final phase when they had the 400% Artifact Overdraw buff. Update 29 brought us level 30 and some nice new feats to boost PRR like Deific Warding and Scion of the Plane of Earth. I was very happy to see that these extra boosts brought Ginger's tanking ability back to where I wanted it to be. See how she does in Tanking EE Fire on Thunder Peak post u29 on a pure druid caster/healer/quasi-tank (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXgTRW9DLyE).

In Solo EE Tavern Brawl (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4B39ZvPy0E), I do Ginger's first solo video after u29 and I discuss some gearing options for a tanky caster druid and also talk about Ginger's performance in the new level 30 DDO.

Master of the Wilds

Update 29 brought us a series of "Master of" feats to boost caster SLA's. I was curious how the druid version Master of the Wilds would perform, so I put this feat to the test and gather some data to see for myself and I discuss my finding in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QYpN11GlSI). There is also a great discussion in the druid forum (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/469548-New-druid-epic-feat-worth-it) where the data is scrutinized further and some additional testing is done.

Thank you for all the kind words, I appreciate the feedback from the viewers and subscribers and hearing that you guys are enjoying the vids! :)

Much love,
Gingerspyce of Sarlona
