    It would help if you included a little more information... character name, play times, etc.

    you can look me up on alts listed:

    I hadn't included that information before because I hadn't actually created any characters yet. I just rolled a Human Barb last night named Wheredidigo. I tend to get online around 11pm (EST) and get off around 1am (EST) during the week, and I'll have very random times to play during the weekend as my real life/job will allow. I plan on playing this barb to get the favor I need to unlock the drow and the 32 point buy system.

    So far I made him a human barb w/ my first two feats being power attack and cleave. I can't remember the stats I gave him off the top of my head, so I'll update after lunch today when I get a chance to log on and find out.

    It's pretty hard to hit at low levels. Instead of Power Attack, you may want to take Toughness. I think Stunning Blow is more powerful then Cleave as well. You can add Power Attack in later or even respec it out with a Siberius Dragonshard. Let me know if you need more specifics.

    Also, you need to decide early if you are going THF or TWF. If THF then get THF feats with improv crit slash, toughness, power att and stunning blow and with your stats maxed on STR then CON. If TWF, you will need to get to 17 DEX (GTWF), so start with 16 dex then add a tome. Max STR then the rest in CON. Get TWF feats, power att, toughness, impr crit pierce, then something like stunning blow or oversized twf.

    Finally, don't be shy about rerolling early assuming you already have access to 32 pt builds. If not, then take your current toon and power grind favor then reroll as a 32 pt build.

    Everything else is gravy.

    he just started... he don't have no tomes. Silly.

    Unless you mailed him one.

    For simplicity, I recommend making it Two handed Fighting spec'ed. It's simpler, and easier to equip.

    This thred is a great idea.

    I stopped playing just a little while after they came out with the Titan or Demon Queen raid. The level cap then was @ 12 and since Ive been back on, I have one 32pt WF Wiz build thats capped out at 16 and a couple others at 13ish level. I dont play any of the toons that I played when I stopped because I felt like they were gimped. I havent ran a whole lot of the newer content and there's where my questions come up.

    Ive read a little bit about dragonscale and dragontouched armor and I was wondering which would be a better option to go after?

    I havent played any of the Reavers Refuge quests yet, is there any advice on what a wizard's job would be in there? Is there any special notes that I should know about any of those quests? The same goes for all of the Orchard quests, any help or advice on those?

    What are some of the better items out the craft?

    Ive been trying to come up with a durable, yet hard hitting fighter. I have a WF barb/ftr @ level 12 and a ftr/pal/rang @ level 13, but both seem like mana sponges. Are there any builds recomended?

    Default Looking for a mentor

    Greetings all. The past several nights I have searched for any of the alts posted in this forum, but have not found any online, so hopefully one of you can find me the next time you are on.

    I am not new to MMOs or to DnD, but am new to DDO and as such, I am looking for someone to show me the ropes. I would love someone that is knowledgeable with Clerics as that is my main. His name is Thadan and currently, he is a lvl 2 Dwarven cleric just finishing up the Korthos Island quests.

    I have joined several PUGs, but folks aren't very talkative and tend to rush through things without explaining what they are doing. I am more of a casual player and like to take things slow the first time through and get into the storyline a bit. (Not too much, but I like to know why I'm doing a certain quest outside of the metagaming reasons)

    I am in the Pacific Time Zone and tend to play later in the evenings, although today I am home, so will be online off and on throughout the day. I would love to have an experienced player duo with me a bit to show me around and pass off some advice. Please look me up and thank you.

    *Edit* I did want to say that the Help channel is decidedly unhelpful. I have been logged into that the previous three nights and am either alone with my thoughts or no answers have been forthcoming from others within (probably others like me).

    Thadar69, while I am not officially part of the mentor program, I am a nice guy. I will be on tonight around 10 pm EST. How about you PM me the name of your character, and I will find you. I'll show you around answer questions and if I have a character in your range we can run some quests as well.
    there's one thing you never put in a trap if you're smart. If you value your continued existence. If you have any plans on seeing tomorrow then there's one thing you never, ever put in a trap.

    I thought the help channel wasn't coming until MOD 9 officially hits ...


    And Thadar, if you really want to go slowly through the quests, that's fine, you just need to join the groups that are like minded. A good thing for a cleric to do is to start your own lfm, saying 'no zerging please' or 'new player going slow' or something like that. Believe me, the zergers will avoid your lfm like the plague lol


    Unfortunately, I cannot help you out except with some money cuz as you can see from my sig below, I have 10 characters (the max with one account) all well above Korthos levels
