    Good tests are hard to come by -- we badly BADLY need a parser. What I currently do is time the solo kill on the Impossible Demands boss. It's has a lot of advantages in ease of access except for...

    Greensteel a special-case. It's more than 30% lower DPS than Ratcatcher, but the extras it can provide can't be found anywhere else and they can be MUCH nicer than more DPS; eg. radiance for...

    What's the point of ETR?

    Or rather, why force folks to replay 20->30? Why not simply let them spend 6M karma to buy the feats directly? The later would provide a very strong enticement for people to play at 30. It would...

    Yeah, it drops -- seen several. And, I can confirm that the game can sense desire and does in fact reduce the drop rates for highly desired items. For example, 24 runs (3xChars ransacking) on Into...

    Carried to 30

    Recently ran an LSL group (as Bard) with some new folk. One seemed to be used to grouping with a set of very strong chars that just mowed down everything in sight. My bard isn't there yet -- DCs...

    The problem with this idea is that DDO is a solo-play game. It has the appearances of a group game, but the way things work out, there are rarely enough people online in a particular level range to...

    I suspect you have rogue as an underlying class. Without sneak attack, blindness won't do anything for your DPS. For instance, my inquisitive has v.little sneak attack (1 bard 2 art 17 ranger). ...

    I'm OK diverging from original topic, but I wonder if someone will try to bring it back. ^~

    For general MMO drop/grind/etc, I'd have to say DDO wins the cake for worst drops by far, including...

    West Coast (PST / GMT-7) Server + Guild?

    Seeking a guild and perhaps a different server, too, for primarily west-coast/PST timezone play. I'm primarily interested in a 90% group / 10% solo ratio. My recent play has that ratio flipped...

    Small update. When my inq/xbow char reached 29, I took her out to Impossible Demands to test Nightmother versus Ratcatcher. Night won by a very small margin -- just a couple seconds on the kill. ...

    I love seeing these builds. I wish the "test" was a bit shorter, but it does cover the case of "can this character do low-shrine quests, too?" If the build can handle Disciples with baby iconic...

    We obviously have different views on what constitutes a waste of time and what doesn't. I won't waste a group's time by offering to join it in anything less than the best gear I can obtain solo. ...

    I might be too new to realize there's a new system; so, uh, what new system?

    This is still broken. It may have worked in the past, but not any longer. Using a timer permits you to try to the "reset the raid" conversation, but it fails with "you must speak with the quest...

    That's interesting. Thanks for the reply. I'll keep my favored-weapon inquisitive on the shelf then in case things change.
  17. Inquisitive "Divine Inquisition" non-functional with favored feats (bug? wai?)

    This may be news to those not doing their own tests on Inquisitive (likely isn't news to those that do). None of the favored weapon feats, such as "Follower of .." (to-hit +1), "Child of .." (+2...

    I'm still using Ratcatcher at L27. It handily outperforms an ML22 Thunderforged HXbow. I don't have Diplomancer, but it only has a standard crit profile, which makes it unlikely to beat Rat until...

    Yes. Artificers can no longer equip rune-arms with crossbows.

    And, old saves (created v.68 and earlier) still don't load: "SentientJewel NumFiligrees missing". In case it helps, very few of my...

    Whatever the cause, it's definitely rare and transient. I wouldn't be able to play if it mostly didn't work. It maybe happens once every other play session. I think I've only died from it once,...

    Standard (gear / self-buffed) immunities?

    What do people expect to see on all (relatively) experienced players as a matter of course when grouping?

    Perhaps influenced by PnP and other D&D games, I typically run with:
