    Excerpts from Level 17 (Hard Difficulty Run)

    Author's Notes

    Mostly rerunning things on elite in the level 13-15 bracket (for favor) and I'm quite happy to have nabbed a Mindfury Symbiont. I've found the end fight of In the Flesh to be quite trivial when using charm to subdue the roaming critters, as they can neither respawn while charmed and they will happily hit the non-charmed things, leaving the fight between you and Yaulthoon. Just be sure to charm the beholder first.

    Behold the power that is the copy-and-paste-error!

    It has been fixed, be level 2 (Shield) and level 3 (Jump). As far as enjoying shield, it helps maintain a usable AC for the first 14 or so levels, so I do love it for that timespan.

    I'm curious about some of the gear you have listed.

    For example the +5 CHA, +3 Hide ring with ML: 1. Is this sort of thing crafted? Just seems crazy to get +5 stat stuff at level 1.

    Excerpts from Level 18 (Hard Difficulty Run)

    Author's Notes

    The Dreaming Dark this time around actually gave me some trouble. The changes to Horrid Wilting actually landing on player characters, along with not quite having the SP pool to down the Devourer of Dreams resulted in a few Mnemonic Elixirs being used.

    Excerpts from Level 19 (Hard Difficulty Run)

    Author's Notes

    The end-stretch is here. 11 quests, 9 Cannith Challenges, and a large bucket of EXP left to fill. None of them posed any horrid threats, but I did need to use a few more mnemonics when I decided to take on Sor'jek Incanni (The Stealer of Souls).

    Nice diary MrCow, can't wait for the elite run and the comparisons in xp/hour too see which is better.

    One question, you said earlier that Earth Savant wasn't giving you much since you used Cone of Cold as the main DPS spell. In your next life will you change your Savant spec away from earth or are you sticking to it? (The Over-Raided guys keep recommending Fire Savant) I got 3 sorc lives next so thinking about wich savant I should go for to speed level.

    Keep up the excellent work (+1 rep)

    Personally, I love it from 1-20 and beyond. You get pelted with magic missiles of various stripes for your whole career in the game, and this puts a complete stop to that. I made it a special point on my main to pick up the silver flame robe from the tier4 necropolis turn in so that I could get the 15 minute nightshield click.

    I am currently undecided. Both Fire and Acid Savant are choices of interest for me.

    Reasons I like the idea of staying Acid Savant:
    • Acid is a stable element. It is not demanding on difficulty checks to be successful and will affect most monsters to some degree. My main arch-nemesis tends to be the Tharrak Hound, of which is fine being they are not a massive threat.
    • +10 HP is always nice.
    • The +2 AC is a benefit, at least, enough of a benefit that it matters to me from level 12 to 17.
    • Balance is useful.
    • Earthgrab can be used to add ~480 bludgeoning damage even on boss-like foes.
    • Melf's Acid Arrow is one of my favorite Spell-Like Abilities, being reliable at taking a single lowly foe down given a bit of time, for 5 SP.
    • It is at odds with Electric, an element I don't care to use much, other than Eladar's Electric Surge.
    • It does not have an innate Fire Guard, an ability which does not go well with Invisibility.
    • Acid Rain is awesome, and Earth Savant gives it upwards of a 20% boost to base damage (CL 18 max instead of CL 15 max).


    Reasons I like the idea of moving to Fire Savant:
    • Fire damage against players is a common occurrence, so innate fire resistance is nice.
    • From level 14 and on, Delayed Blast Fireball is my defacto Area-of-Effect Instant Damage spell.
    • Scorch is a nice spell to have as a Spell-Like Ability.



    Water Savant for the leveling process takes away from Delayed Blast Fireball, which is a fairly pivotal spell because it has a larger damage radius (30ft) than most other spells (20ft) coupled with capping at CL 20. So no go there.

    Air Savant takes away from Acid Rain which has importance, because it is an efficient and potent lingering spell that can be used in conjunction with Wall of Fire or Ice Storm, when one needs to slaughter lots of critters on minimal SP usage. Couple that with my lack of love for the lightning spells and I have my reasons for staying away from Air Savant.

    Some of my items were grandfathered in with minimum levels that are not the normal, such as the Dusky Rose Ioun Stone with no ML (during the first few weeks there were suppressed power Ioun Stones) and the ring you are mentioning (from the end reward list of Reign of Madness).

    Excerpts from Level 1 (Elite Difficulty Run)

    Author's Notes

    And now for round 2, the Elite-focused quest run.

    This time around I'm using some Fernian Wraps instead of a +3 Icy Burst Heavy Pick for my weapon, as I won't suffer a penalty to attack using it, it has a bit of +Reflex Saves, and the 0 BAB brawl punch animation style is pretty fast.

    Things worthy of Standing Stone going EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on.:
    • NEW - Fix the flipping non-proficiency penalties for wildshape!
    • Redo the Favor rewards so there is a reason to do max favor again.
    • Redoing the drop rates of tomes in generic and raid loot tables.
    • Task Lynnabel with updating the remaining legacy named loot to not suck.
    • Tiering the Runearms so that artificers aren’t screwed out of the advantages of Cannith Crafting in Epic levels on their signature item.
    • Finishing the enhancement tree passes (including racial PrE’s) before rolling out yet another DDOStore™ Enhancement Tree.
