    Default Time and Day?

    We need to start thinking about time/day.

    I am very flexible, but also subject to sudden changes and interruptions. Saturday mornings would work best for me, family stuff doesn't usually start until after lunch.

    That said, I am committed to a previous engagement for this coming weekend, all weekend. From Friday night to Sunday evening will be unable to play unless something changes.

    Looking for input (bearing in mind the build is not optimized nor should it be).

    Stats
    Str: 10
    Dex: 12
    Con: 11
    Int: 14
    Wis: 17
    Cha: 8

    Starting with rogue of course, that gives Spot +7 and Search/DD +6 without any gear. Assuming basic gear (i.e. troubleshooter, etc.), is that enough for Korthos traps on hard difficulty?

    Also, I'm waffling between human and halfling. Thoughts?

    Traps, sneakiness, and secondary healing are the goals. Perhaps I'll take Sap as a feat in addition to Toughness, unless someone tells me I need to take skill focus for this or that. I do not intend to do damage as my party members are sufficient for that.
    If you play this as a Halfling, reduce STR to 8 and increase DEX to 14.

    Default How the hell did this post end up in German...?

    Whoa, either I'm drunk or this post page is in German... or maybe I got drunk and went to Germany. Hmmm... maybe I'm German.

    Ich spreche Deutsch, ergo Ich bin Deutschlander...

    OMG I'm German and I didn't even know it!!!!!!

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

    Anyway... now for something completely different...

    Fedora - Any time weekend nights I'm available, but every other weekend day I work.

    p.s - ich spreche ein bischen deutsch... sehr bischen... really

    Kierik, have you actually rolled it up yet? You might want to think about ranger/rogue - you'll get more skill points, still be able to heal, and be a better trapper. You can be an Arcane Archer with Elf and get great damage at range.

    They LOOK like potions, but when you trigger them in a non-public instance, they give you 50 hams each.

    Ah ok. Good enough then. Also please see my post on the ring, ember axe, and starter healing potions from the grotto. Let me know if that's okay. Also thoughts on all new characters running the grotto for starter gear? It's really quite minimal even for first level IMO.

    Also, got this from Posthumus:

    To be determined, but it looks like weekends. I'll post the question in the forums.
    If it is on the weekends I would be interested in playing a bard. I don't have any characters on your server yet, so it won't be a problem to play using THACO rules.
    A bard! Yes!

    Default Hunh??

    But what do you mean? [says the pot ]

    I'm just passing along the convincing argument that you yourself used on moi... ;p, yes?

    And she's NOT a Paladin/Rogue - she's a Vigilante... a psychopathic, stealthy killer that lives and breathes for vengence, but with a certain... code of honor.

    You know... a serial killer of EVIL. It's complicated.

    But she'll have - Evasion, Sneak Attacks, High Saves, Good AC, Smite Evils, Exalted Smites (up to II), Guile and Cunning, Divine Sacrifice, and Divine Light and Might. Martial weapons. With a keen weapon of maiming she should put out really good damage (for D&D style of play).

    Anyhow that's the plan.

    Since that is the ruling for this group, and he's been following the thread, I would assume yes.

    A water breathing ring (1 click per rest) - I thought you said this was okay to keep?
    An ember great axe. Adds +1 fire damage, is starter gear (can't be sold), and is essentially only marginally better than a masterwork (which is +1 to hit instead of damage). Dump it?
    A few plat (less than 5).
    A breastplate (medium armor).
    A few starter potions of cure light wounds. Okay to keep?

    I actually suggest that everyone take the 5-10 minutes to run the grotto quest for starting gear, rather than use another character on the server to hand over a bunch of plat to buy gear, but I'll go with whatever everyone else wants to do.
    If your all not on the same page, Grotto puts you ahead almost 1000 XP.
    It is not a big problem keeping the stuff, it's more a mindset starting with ZERO magic.
    At upper levels (5th! ) we have started using a "First Aid Kit" of Cure Light Potions and HEAL Kits.
    At 1st level (especially if you bring say, 5 Hams) you should be fine.
    The axe you carry isn't anything to consider overpowering, but it LOOKS like magic on a level 1 character.
    Just saying.....
    Others that did not do the grotto won't have ANYTHING.

    Since everyone accepted the random rolled stats, we'll make it manditory.

    Default Vini

    I've already taken Vini through the Grotto too. Ember Rapier and Bow. I thought we were starting at level 1 on the Island?

    That's exactly what I mean! lol

    Hey, is Fricko a professional author? That is quite a story he did there.

    I do feel sorry for the guy who needs to come up with how we all met.

    *looks around*
    Intruder? Oh Intruder, where are youooooo? lol

    Do you need to go to Stormreach first, then back to Korthos, in order to party?

    I have solo'd 99.99% of my DDO career, so not really sure.

    Then let's have everyone do the grotto if possible. I'd hate to remake this toon a third time. lol

    No problem. I can drop the axe and buy something.
    I think if we are using heal potions for first aid kits then it's okay to keep the 3-5 potions from the grotto. That would stretch the hams out a bit longer. We won't be getting those again any time soon.

    I have farmed almost 2000 hams from characters.
    create, collect, place in bank, delete, repeat.
