    Default Fawngate's Completionist Project

    Originally found at www.themacguild.com
    (Which is expirencing website troubles atm)

    Fawngate is my first character made for Khyber
    (Myself being an immigrant who started on Orien during the opening months of free to play.)

    She has her own story now, called Fawn's Fate found here in this thread:
    https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...=1#post4993431

    Her goals are to learn something about DDO each life, learn each class by playing thru the class seriously, playing a life in each race, and to have fun in the process.
    She often runs or joins pick up groups as Khyber has excellent players.

    Her little sisters Fawnglow (a raiding cleric) and Fawngold (a haggler) are designed to support Fawngate.


    Her past lives:
    Human Favored Soul
    Human Favored Soul (at which point she decided to try for completionist)
    Human Necro Wizard (with a repeating heavy xbow nicknamed the gatling gun)
    Half Elf Light Monk (strength with cleric dilly)
    Level 1 thru 11 Half Elf Cleric (balanced cleric with fighter dilly)
    {Deleted at this point due to stress in real life which resulted in loss of part of reicarnation bank}
    Level 12 thru 20 Half Elf Cleric (balanced cleric with fighter dilly)
    {Left guild due to my father's death, temporary put aside}
    Dwarf Barbarian (rogue splash for trapper)
    Warforged Sorcer (fire/cold/acid combinations tried)
    {Began running raid trains again}
    Elf Rogue (strength with fighter splash)

    Current life 9th:
    1 Rogue 17 Ranger (str+con trapper) 93/95 ranks

    Future plans:
    Sit at 20 and see what unfolds with the new expansion.
    Might take 19 levels of Ranger to get more spell slots.
    (Gambling on Druid bringing new nature spells that might be useful.)


    Lives left in order of perferance:
    Artificer (as many feel its strong atm)
    Paladin (healing amp)
    Bard (will saves)
    Fighter (want some of the above and possible halfling dragonmark costing 1 feat before doing)
    Druid (want to let it shake down before trying out)

    Races left:
    Drow ~ Bard?
    (Considered for Paladin at one time.)
    Half Orc ~ something melee?
    (Considerd for Warchanter Bard at one time.)
    Halfling ~ depends on dragonmarks
    (Considering Fighter.)


    Advice that helped:
    Alternating melee lives with caster lives.
    (Sanity thru variety being more important than exact path.)

    Many thanks to the people of the Mature Adventurer's Guild for their build advice, support and help.
    Many thanks to the people of Timmy with a guild name sooo long it runs off the page for helping me thru the barbarian life and onward.

    Things I regret:
    Not having Silver Flame potions during the Barbarian life.
    Losing Fawngate's Gatling Gun inside her reicarnation bank.
    Not having enough bank/backpack space at times.
    Not having enough room on my friend list to place everyone.

    Enjoyable moments:
    Many happy times in Khyber!

    Beware, this thread tends to ramble about as I talk about builds, when to TR, moan about bank space, etc...

    Watch out! Fawns posts will come to dominate the forum. They'll start off in a fairly logical mode and then they'll just swell untill its renaed Dungeons and Fawngate Online(DFO).

    Fawngate is has now completed her 9th life.
    (Some Eyes of Madness and Reavers Refuge to finish off)

    She drank a major guild renown potions (+75%) to see if it would affect the renown from the two large bounties.
    Our guild was awarded 105 k renown (50 k twice with a mediun guild bonus).
    Which means the guild renown potions don't appear to work on bounties.
    Anyway Timmys is now 40k from level 70 ~ woot!

    She took 2 more ranger levels for 1 rogue/19 ranger.

    Lol, now it begins....To TR or not to TR ~that is the question?

    Fawn, I got 29ish k for a single large bounty at 16 last night. +75% would take that to 50ish, so it could be your potion worked.

    Well Fawngate spent most of yesterday evening emptying her reicarnation bank.

    Turns out her rogue life did not use many of her stockpile of silver flame potions.
    In fact there are nearly 50 stacks of them there.
    Soooo....

    A fighter life to use up the Silver Flame potions as they are taking up quite a bit of room.
    Half Orc Two Handed Kensei sounds interesting.

    Very tempted to splash bard for wands/umd, but then a voice said....Trust in the Flame...

    So back into Korthos she goes.

    Fighter 1

    Half Orc

    +3 supreme tome already applied
    Str 20
    Dex 09
    Con 15
    Int 11
    Wis 11
    Cha 09

    Feats
    Two Weapon Fighting
    Weapon Focus Slashing Weapons

    Skills
    Jump
    Balance

    Spent this morning pulling out of banks various items including:
    Chrono set for later
    Ring of Feather, Bottle of Air
    Trinket of Melee +10%
    Necklace of will resistance and med slot
    Cloak with med slot and find secret doors
    Assorted Potions
    Snowmen summons gems

    Picked up from the auction house:
    Adamantine Plate and
    http://ddowiki.com/page/Falchion with large slot
    deconstructing both to level 1
    (Timmy's guild just hit 70)

    Started deconstructing various items that were valuable before Fawngate's crafting levels got to 90ish.


    In celebration of Fawngate's 10th life, she will be giving out two 1600 turbine point codes.
    Anyone posting in this thread before midnight eastern standard time June 5th, 2012 will be entered.
    Winners will be determined by making a list and throwing official D&D dice.
    Winners must confirm the code worked, typos are slightly possible, but will be triple checked.
    Any unused codes will be redeemed by my account at the end of June, by turning them in to ensure they were used.


    Somehow, rentering Korthos seems peaceful to me.
    Woot!

    Default Have fun in Korthos

    50 stacks of Silver Flame pots should get you through the fighter life. Luck to you.

    Thanks Adam!
    That is reassuring to know.

    Finished up Korthos with a flurry, woot!
    Level 3, need to get out a bit of gear including my crafted fire and electric absorbtion trinkets.
    Nebb gave me a snowman gem, and Fawngate used one on Cannith Crystal and one on Cannith Manufactury.

    I like the new Korthos interface.

    Added feats: Barbarian past life (with the greater false life ring, she is now well over 100 hit points) and power attack
    Added skills: jump, balance, and starting intimidate.

    Fawnglow is now flagged for Titan and wants to participate in the halfling summer games:
    http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=371869


    Talked with my friends yesterday.
    We are definately excited about one of the new Beta upcoming changes which we cannot talk about here.


    We did a bit of debate on what the best haste clickie might be:

    Possible best haste clickie Greensteel Staff with tier 1 and 2 electrical absorbtion.
    Staffs grant your character's caster levels to an item if they exceed the caster level of the item.

    Possible worst haste clickie Greensteel Great Crossbow with tier 1 and 2 electrical damage on it.
    Ranged weapons reload as you equip them, taking more time and possibly tossing out arrows into your inventory.
    (Yes, I have the latter and am considering the former someday...lol)

    Hey Fawn. Somehow I didn't think the MAC forums being down would stop you on your quest. Good luck, and happy hunting!

    I'm headed to Korthos to guide a friend that's new to DDO. I'm glad you found it peaceful. I mostly always want to get off that island ASAP. "Yes, yes, I know, I know....the Sahugin found you. Again."

    I've come to believe Fawn has a residence in Korthos. I mailed something to him a while back and got a change of Address from the Orion mail service

    Good to see you still trucking along. Let me know if you need any suggestions on the Paladin life.

    Woot smiles at friends!

    Thanks Enoach, I'll definately need some tips later on.

    Enjoying the fighter life more than I thought I would.

    Fawngate is now leaving the harbor per sah...
    Done the circle except Steathly Reposesion (a few more than once), Cereleun Hills, and did the two marketplace level 2s

    Now Level 5.8 ; took Slashing Weapon Specialization heading towards Kensei.
    Wearning Chrono Gear, Chrono Armor (which seems maybe to be reducing the hold person spells due to spell resistance), Cloak of the Worldshaper, Str ioun stone, and a guild augment necklace with will saves bonuses.
    Had to hunt for the Carnifex and found it late last night.

    Began clearing out some of my alts by deconstructing magical items and deleted two of them.
    Tasty Ham explosions in Searing Heights.
    Screenshoted exploding pig barrels in the dragonmark quest, not sure how to upload pictures.
    The extra small xp is nice for deconstructing, Fawngate might just unload a lot of her older loot.

    Really enjoyed this DDO thread:
    http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=375477
    Even some of the Devs replied to it.


    By the way, I'm an artist so I tend to follow comics more than world news such as:
    http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20021104

    and this one that a DDO dev pointed out:
    http://friendshipisdragons.thecomics.../comics/first/

    I might start reading this one again that the play by post D&D players pointed out to me:

    My mom had a heart attack last weekend.
    Refused to go to the hospital, her family doctor gave her medicine, and she seems better yesterday.
    No surgery for her she says.
    This is somewhat similar to my dad not wanting chemo.

    She loves the old movies I buy for her.
    Need to get her more flowers sometime.
    And she so loves her precious moment dolls which are taking over the living room.

    Anyway, if you ever hear me say afk a minute gotta help my mom, its important and I'll be back.
    (This is why I generally don't play a healer with Fawngate right now, its so difficult to go afk as a healer.)

    Thanks


    Pondering it a bit, here are two choices:

    1) Use the current style and do the fighter life, going back around to a lvl 8 bard then using the stone of experience before August 20th!

    Pros ~ leaves me with two lifes left, can almost taste the end.
    Cons ~ stress of worrying that between now and then I will not get my fighter life completed.
    (Seem to be able to do a life in a little over a month, and we have 2.5 months.)

    2) Convert character into a bard somehow, and use the stone of experience right away. Then TR back into the fighter/silver flame path that Fawngate is doing right now.

    Pros ~ could be an interesting melee bard build.
    Cons ~ the stone of experience is already gone.



    So, if Fawngate converted to bard, perhaps something like this:

    Currently
    Half Orc Fighter level 5 (with banked level)
    Feats Weapon Focus Slashing, Weapon Specialization Slashing, Power Attack, Two Weapon Fighting, Barbarian Past Life active feat
    (Note that this fullfills the feat requirements for both Warchanter and Kensei prestigue classes.)

    So, if Fawngate takes:
    6) Bard level 1 feat Maximized Spell
    7) Fighter level 6 feat Improved Two Weapon Fighting
    8) Bard level 2
    Use Stone of Change to Jump to level 16
    9) Bard level 3 feat (need base attack bonus of 8 for improved critical slashing so fighter 6 = +6 bab / bard 3 = +2 bab)
    10) Bard level 4
    11) Bard level 5
    12) Bard level 6 Empowered Healing or Extend (Greater Two Weapon Fighting requires bab of +11, but we only have a bab of +10)
    13 Bard level 7
    14 Bard level 8
    15 Bard level 9 Greater Two Weapon Fighting
    16 Bard level 10 (with 4 first level spells, 4 second level spells, 4 third level spells, 2 fourth level spells)

    Hmm...spell selection:

    1) Expedious Retreat, Hypnotism, Remove Fear, Feather Fall
    2) Rage, Blur, ???, ???
    3) Good Hope, Displacement, Haste, ???
    4) Cure Critical Wounds, Freedom of Movement (Dimension Door later?)

    Well, maybe it might work out.
    Would be at 16 to 18 mostly then TR into Fighter life.

    Best to prepare and look for any signs of problems before using the stone of experience by letting a few brave souls start first.

    Option #3
    Zergify fighter class, since its easy to learn, going with kensei III...

    Pros ~ gets the fighter class done and does not skip thru a class that is more complex.
    Cons ~ maybe lose the speed of skipping thru something more complex to level up.

    This one has the advantage of my philosophy of completionist learning all the classes.
    Having played pen and paper D&D, and learned a bit of twiching skills, fighter is fairly straightforward now.

    I would say drop maximize on the bard. That only affects damage dealt by spells while bards only really have a couple of sonic based damage spells (none of which you have on your list of possible spells). I would take extend there if you plan to take a metamagic for that feat since you have a lot of buffs on that list and won't have a very high bard level for spell length. I think Warchanter melee focused bard would be most viable if you chose this path.
