For a DDO bucket list, please consider...
The thrill of rocking a Bard--facinating, buffing, cc'ing Epic Elite and then hearing comments on how easy was the quest...and that the bard solo healed it.
The constant engagement and challenge of the healing the highest level of content on a Cleric, while insisting to solo heal.
Quietly topping kill count as a well built ranged Elven AA Ranger....
Surviving, reviving and enduring to recover/prevent a party wipe...on a high umd, tactics Half Orc Kensai Fighter.
Pure Arcane power...
A frenzied, raged Barbarian with an eSoS on an Adrenalin Overload.
The self-sufficiency of a Paladin...advising the group healer to not worry about healing you, and having the ability to keep a party up and going in a pinch.
A stone cold killer Rogue...who can disable/open/search whatever DDO throws.
Ninja Monk stunning blow, Touch of Death.
What other experiences are out there?
The goal of this post is to inspire DDO players to consider playing different classes with the RL benefit of adapting to change and diffent mindsets.
On Argo, there is only one other I know for sure (Souless) who has POWER gamed since beta, without breaks of no more than a week or two. That's a hard thing to state as factual and likely is incorrect. Being a top channel lurker since channels came about, and top guilds prior to channels, that's the best of my understanding. That doesn't mark me as anything special, but I hope it lends credibility to the climax of what I am trying to share.
I credit longitivity to:
- Running and maintaining different characters (being open to different experiences).
- Forming and maintaining positive relationships
- Being a team player
You reap what you sow...
My video card is fried and I'm looking at day 4 of an 8 day outage for my new PC build. The Nak is getting sentimental and ticked about missing the last days of dunrobar farming...
