    Excerpts from Level 10

    Today is the day I learned Tharrak Hounds have DR/Law & Magic, not just DR/Law. I forgot to add Magic Fang while using my axiomatic crossbow in Wolf Form, and found that out.

    Another bug oddity with the druid right now is if you shift from an animal form to your original form while unarmed (such as with handwraps), you retain your animal damage profile (such as wolf adding slashing and piercing damage types, as well as the 19-20/x3 critical profile) on top of your unarmed profile (also add bludgeoning damage type).

    Excerpts from Level 11

    Time to take the other monk level, as the lack of Toughness can certainly be felt with the current state of Elite traps.

    Hold for Reinforcements is even crueler than usual right now, as the Tharrak Hounds are casting as-if their spells and breath weapons were maximized. This is allowing them to one-shot Coyle with Acid Blast and Cyclonic Blast.

    Great info

    I have bin leveling a TR druid myself. I really good tip though: Probably the best Druid enhancement is reaving roar. 13d6 sonic Aoe dmg every time you kill something (spell or melee), beats anything. It can even be enhanced.

    Excerpts from Level 12

    As people have noted, Reaving Roar is quite the crazy enhancement in the mid-levels. It can easily create a domino effect if you get a cluster of critters near you, effectively wiping them out the moment one or two of them die. This can be expedited in some cases where you have oozes that split, as a splitting ooze is considered a dead ooze (and out comes a Reaving Roar).

    I'm also finding some humor in that the Wolf Takedown works on a few creatures it probably shouldn't, such as beholders.

    Excerpts from Level 13

    Tomb of the Tormented graced me with my first negative levels from an energy drain effect. Thankfully, the time between fights is quite long, so they had plenty of time to dissipate. Also, Reaving Roar can hurt the rats and worgs beneath the grates.

    I also had my first case of Flesh to Stone from one of the named scorrow in Dreams of Insanity. It almost caused a death, but not quite.

    Note of interest for Tomb of the Blighted. Being animal form allows you to equip throwing items, but not actually throw them, the vials of water (which do massive damage against oozes and undead) allows a druid to equip the vials of water and raze the critters inside with ease.

    Excerpts from Level 14

    Zawabi's Revenge is just not happening on this character. The SP-based consumables I'd need to use for getting this done on Elite, along with trying to survive the last phase of Lailat, it is currently a beyond what I'm willing to do.

    The character has Katra's Wit, but not Katra's Razor Wit. Being neither the CHA bonus or Diplomacy are needed, I'm not worried about using the lesser version for the Wrath of Sora Kell Set Bonus.

    But it's still in the bank? I like the upgraded version for UMD and conversation options (crucible etc).

    Excerpts from Level 15

    Finally, a Wild Shape form that isn't bear or wolf!

    The combination of Area Effect Damage Over Time spells (Body of the Sun, Ice Storm, Wall of Fire, Creeping Doom) coupled with Reaving Roar is still making pretty decent work of hoards o' critters.

    Elemental Form happily is immune to Flesh to Stone. It gives me a way to have good positive energy healing and near-immunity to Medusas at the same time.

    On a similiar note, Sun flasks(festivus turn-in rewards) can be equipped allowing melee attacks. With no ML, it makes for pretty silly low level undead quests with the light damage effect being ~ 70-80 w/reflex save(it appears so to me at least) and ghost touch.

    I will have to compare with blighted flasks in a few levels. hmmmm, any other similiar flasks in the game?

    Something you should consider for this diary is doing all the Eberron epic quests as well. I think we’re going to see some epic destiny farming done on future multi-TRs/completionists.
    Things that if Turbine went all EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on, would actually make the game fun again.:
    • Giving us the racial PrE’s we were promised, before rolling out DDOStore™ Enhancement Trees.
    • One loot system to rule them all. (Including Cannith Crafting, and Named Loot.)
    • Fixing the Cannith Challenges so that they can be 6 starred without incredible luck or store bought items.
    • Adjusting Challenge XP so that they're worth running more than once.

    This. I'd highly recommend getting to 25 or at least a good way toward it in this and future diaries.
    I don't have a zerging problem.

    I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.

    Interesting thing, the Fire Elemental Form gives a +1 Caster Level to Light spells, and the spell Word of Balance as alignment damage spell, somehow is also lumped into the +1 Caster Level bonus to Light spells.

    Excerpts from Level 17

    It has been a while since I played a character that was stun-immune nearly all the time (from Elemental Wild Shape form). It comes in handy at places like Delerium during the Ale Drinking. Its a shame that I still can't out-drink the 4 beholders all by my lonesome on Elite (and Dogdog can't hold his liquor).

    I'm also really enjoying Earthquake.

    As per usual, this is also the level that the HP bloat on Elite monsters starts to drag out quests on Elite difficulty. I'll probably be switching several quests to Hard (or Normal) in the coming levels.

    funniest comment I have heard/read all morning, and I am watching Family guy while forum-ing.

    Thanks again for the diaries MrCow, they have been really helpful, even though I mainly play first lifers, my 2nd life monks both used(using for one of them) the melee diary, and although it doesn't include so new quests, it was still really helpful!

    Excerpts from Level 18

    I tried a few attempts at Spinner of Shadows Elite, but I found it to just continuously take me down (as the Spinner of Shadow's poison is being treated as-if Maximized and Empowered, or something similarly causing it to do far more damage than it used to on Heroic Elite).
