Azzlorn is a 1 off who forgoes the trappings of wealth and magic. His 'friends' laugh as they posess a magic item for every eventuality. Their bank safe deposits verily glow with dweomers. They say you're mad why do you do it?
Replying simply because we get to "go to the Pub" oh i mean "its such a good laugh".
As a group i don't think we have ever left and re-entered. Once or twice at the start we died very quickly and decided to leave that adventure to another day. Azzlorn still wonders what happened to that farmer in the hills outside the habour.
It is very difficult playing DDO without some kind of healing hireling/wand/potions. I've not played a rogue but think its not the easiest class to play certainly solo.
My advice just have a mess about its a game. There is a lot of choice. Visit ddo wiki 1st . Have FUN.
Some sites to bookmark
No. 1 site nearly everything you need to know. Warning The Quest section has maps ect but many 'Spoilers'
A character planner. A simple looking but brilliant program used by many.
Collectables get them all some are worth a small fortune. Keep essences for crafting or sale on AH. Check magic items for 'guild augument slots' for rare to find medium and large slots . Below is the best guide on the forum.
You will also find many people willing to answer questions on ddo forums.
Doubt you will catch me in game but Look out for Alivef or Runikz they are the characters i play mostly. I have low level characters .
