Hi. So yeah, I've been playing since 2009 (and my wife since 2011) and we loooove the game.
We were premium up until I got my wife into it and she wanted both of us to just go VIP (in 2011).
We've TR'd 2 sets of characters, done almost all of the content and have been in multiple Cove & Mabar groups ( I have an impressive number of skeletal dragon scales)
We've never done a raid.
Not really anyways (running level 5 Chronoscope at 18 doesn't really count)
We're flagged for MANY. Just never took the step to reach out to other players (which is funny considering how quickly we do it for Cove & Mabar).
Can anyone give up pointers on how to start? Which groups/guilds are willing to take newbies? We've studied them (raids) lots in the forums and DDOWiki- and just chickened out whenever we saw a post complaining about noobs in raids.
