    Due to a recent reincarnation, you must wait 4 days, 6 hours, 27 min, 50 seconds to reincarnate again...

    Now at level 20 and working thru epic hard von with Alishae and Mordemize who are always fun
    to game with.

    Well, time for lunch...

    A little birdie chips to Fawn,

    [rumor]awhile back one of the ideas kicked around the development table
    was the ability to give up epic levels for some tangible benefit.

    Drop XX Epic levels and get a stat/hit point/spell point increase,
    with some sort of limits[/rumor]



    Maybe this is going towards? a level 30ish toon drops back to level 20ish and gain XX permanent benefit(s)?

    Probably this idea is starting to come to life now?

    The advantages are that one can reset one epic quest xp without going all the way back to level 1.

    Probably this means the level cap will go summer 2014 to 30??

    We may see a bit more epic destiny brought out?
    Be interesting to see how that goes.
    Jump up to Epic Destiny 8 would produce a ton more xp to farm out.

    I wonder...



    Most interesting for Fawn as it means she can plow ahead without too much fear of nothing to do.

    {Copy and insert generic bank space rant here.}


    A lot going on, nice to see the enhancement update will reach the Xoriat server and stay
    on the Xoriat server for quite some time, possibly till near the Expansion.

    Min Two of each Prestige class instead of min three is wise. Two of each will really help with variety,
    and yet get the pass over done and in our hands.


    Well, the Devs were very quiet and now we see they are very busy...

Effectively, monsters with a level adjustment become multiclass character when they take class levels. A creature’s “monster class” is always a favored class, and the creature never takes XP penalties for having it.

    Very interesting indeed.


    For example, say they introduce a Forgotten Realms Paragon Drow with a level adjustment of
    +8?

    Or maybe a Dragonborn with a +5 LA?

    Or perhaps a Sun Elf with +2 Level Adjustment?

    You have seen those Paragon Kobolds in enter the kobold, but we could call them iconic.

    We recognise that some players can build a specific character more to their liking than some of the options in the character generator, there are so many race/class options that they are not equal in specificity or power across all levels.
    Moreover, DDO is a superior MMO* when it comes to character creation and we will not be taking that option away from you... 'you' being, you daring number crunching heroes off the paved path.


    * veiws expressed here are my own.

    The greatest fear expressed to me about all this news is allayed here.
    That Iconic characters will not be some tight path with little creativity.

    In fact, I think what I dislike most about the G.I.M.P. is that it takes the creativity
    out of designing a character.

    There are few choices, just mostly a random cut and dried you do this.

    Ironically, as we have already seen, Fawn could blow thru her "gimp" life with little problems.


    What is GIMP?

    What should true GIMP be?

    Once said, true or not:
    Player skill > Equipment > Build


    So, what if~

    What if one limited DDO store items usage?
    What if one limited withdraws from Shared Bank / Reincarnation Cache?
    What if one limited XP boosts?
    What if one limited Auction House usage?
    What if one limited Trades?
    What if one expanded the class choices giving a broad path not a narrow one?




    For example a much more Get Into Multiclassing Project might be:

    One must choose 3 different classes, taking at least 3 levels in each class by level 20.

    One cannot trade except for in quest items that drop from inventory after quest completion.

    One cannot use the auction house.

    One can only pull one item per level from either the shared bank or reincarnation cache,
    said item must be immediately usable at that level if desired.

    One can pull potions as desired from either the shared bank or reincarnation cache,
    with a limit of one spell point restoration potion per level.

    One can pull a single wand each level from either the shared bank or reincarnation cache.

    At the start of the gimp life, one may pull the following items out:
    Collectables Bags, Ingredient Bags, Gem Bags and anything similar to a bag of this nature.
    Cookie Jars and the like
    Sigil Frames and any other items that grant flagging privileges
    Starter items

    One must start with 10k plat at beginning of life.

    One cannot use any item that is purchased from the DDO store.

    One may at any time, pull items/plat out for the sole purpose of mailing to another player
    such as a healer as reward for job well done, if nothing is expected in return.

    One may bank levels as desired.



    Now something like that would have much more of an impact of GIMP along with the
    creativity to explore various multi classing options.

    Sigh...Photoshop flashes now at me when I try using it seriously.
    Probably a setting, but seriously not good.


    Woot, Painter does not have that problem, thank goodness.

    Probably a upgrade to windows 8 side effect...

    Fawngate picked up four randomly generated augment slot items yesterday,
    quite easily.

    Simply by looking at each item in her end reward lists, as each list has about
    10ish item in it, which is close to the percentage of changes to see one item per list.

    Three were colorless mostly scepters , but one was a +6 health green slot belt.
    Actually better than her current belt if she slots it with something nice.


    I think it is very interesting of the choice to make the next expansion level 28 instead of 30.
    Why because 28, 32, 36, 40 makes sense for level cap increases.

    Of great note is the comments,
    ....This year is going to be another great year for DDO - with ....and powerful new character abilities...
    Hmm...instead of saying more epic destinies, sounds broader.
    The epic destinies might start seeing level caps on them as well for the next 6 thru ?.

    Epic True Reincarnation would also introduce a new completionist track. What would two more stat points do to your TR character? Well, stay tuned this summer for an update on our development progress!
    Interesting, Fawngate could use a 38 point build option, for sure.
    Maybe even see a 40 or 42 point build someday?
    Sounds like more info this summer anyway.

    I wonder?

    With a new prestige character feature we are calling Iconic Heroes;
    Prestige classes is heroic stuff, interesting.
    Maybe this is part of the enhancement update process?
    Hmm...hopefully it might be some sort of Level Adjustment that one can option into for various
    amounts?

    By the way, Silver Flame Potions don't mix well with Paladins.
    +1 ETK death due to Silver Flame Penalty = no cure serious wounds
    as Pallys tend to have barely enough wisdom to cast spells.
    The proper move was lay on hands instead.

    Monks can use Silver Flame Potions much easier in emergencies.

    Just wanted to drop in to say Happy Birthday to DDO and thanks to everyone for continuing to play and support our game. Also congratulations to Glin on his first big producer letter! Erik and the rest of the DDO team have some great additions to the game coming with this expansion and we are excited to start sharing information with you.

    I wanted to touch on the topic of bugs and product quality that I have seen brought up a lot in this thread. First thing is to say that we recognize that there have been some lingering issues from both the U17 deployment and our recent billing system migration. Fixes for the major issues introduced with these changes are being readied now and hopefully will get deployed as soon as tomorrow. So birthday gifts and missing monk outfits will hopefully be fixed tomorrow (look for an official announcement soon). We would have gotten this out sooner, but we have a fix for some new causes of server lag and disconnects that will be part of that patch also and that needed some extra bake time.

    We know also that there are significant bugs that have been in the game a lot longer – particularly some remaining issues in Epic Destinies. We have made some important fixes at the end of last year but we know there is still work left to do. Our plan is to prioritize the fixing of these issues alongside our bug fix time for the enhancements and other systems changes planned for the expansion. Thanks in advance to those of you who will help us try features on Lamannia in the coming months and identify the issues most in need of fixing. We are committed to gathering your feedback and working to ensure that we leave both Destinies and Enhancements in better shape by the time Shadowfell Conspiracy ships.

    Last thing I wanted to respond to is the discussion on the VIP plan. We are always striving to offer a great value to our VIPs and we think of this as more than just getting access to new content. While our VIPs will continue to receive regular new content and features outside of expansions, we will also be adding other valuable benefits to the program. For example, we already have a change coming for the next patch (as a belated birthday present maybe) which will add 10% boost to all earned XP for VIP accounts. We can’t make every player always decide it is worthwhile to be a VIP, but we will continue to do what we can to make the program a good deal for our most ardent players. We will share more details on these changes as they are solidified.

    Happy 7th birthday, DDO! Here is to 7 great years and many more to come.
    -Fernando.

    I recently was debating dropping VIP for Premium purchase,
    but now I will stay VIP.

    Hello Fernando,

    These new expansion ideas sound great.

    Could we see a new individual bank created that if one purchases
    the expansion one receives. Sort of like a bank similar to the house k
    one but independent of it? This would be great incentive to purchase
    the new expansion as bound to character space is becoming problematic.

    Maybe two bank slots and DDO store purchase for the rest?

    Make sure it sweeps into the reincarnation bank, but if it does not
    connect with the shared bank that is ok.

    I can understand if the backpack space cannot be increased due to
    fear of performance issues and would be satisfied thus.

    Cheers,
    Fawngate of Khyber

    PS Allowing Silver Flame potions to stack in stacks of 100 instead of
    10 would greatly help as well.

    Make it a 1000 while you working on it

    Smiles at Abby...


    And Ebb, Fawngate does have Empowered Healing feat, but has not equipped a devotion item
    at all for most of her life. Too much nice stuff to use, moving too fast, just not feeling the need.

    A good devotion item => empowered healing feat, so you should be fine.

    Seriously thinking:
    Feat Swap Improved Shield Bashing + Empowered Healing
    Plus level 24 free feat to have the 3 finding dragon marks if I stick around for Epic Gianthold.

    Pally is a nice class for Epic Gianthold.
    Really Pally is about being the last lady standing, something Fawn does well anyway.



    Concerning Battle Boxes having everything bound to character and storage mules:
    Try picking the pork barrels on a mule toon and exploding them in searing heights?
    The tasty hams probably are not bound to character?

    IMHO 150 tasty hams => 4 rez cakes

    Took me own advice.
    Mule choose bound to character pork barrels.
    Mule took them to Searing Heights, exploded them and collected the tasty hams,
    which are NOT bound at all.

    Have screenshots, but don't consider this important enough to post them.
