    I THINK it was fullplate. I'd have to double check. Pretty sure it's still in my pack.

    Yes, there are at least two dragons out there:
    Draconic Rage and
    Treating Hypothermia rare encounters.

    You may get an extra chest if you successfully talked to the dragon.
    Neat. Time to smack some lizard around with my diplomacy/bluff skills!

    Wish I had red dragon armor, though, if it's true the white dragon says different stuff if you're wearing it!

    I didn't even get a chance to smooth talk the dragon.

    That's why, when you get near a dragon's lair, you stroll along playing a lute and singing about how you, too, admire large piles of gold. That gets their attention and gives them a conversation starter.

    I don't think that would help things in my case.
    My ranger can't carry a tune in a bucket.

    Hey, it's not our fault is there are humorous anecdotes in your past that need to be revisited. In front of other people. At inopportune times. Bards are here to serve the people, and make them happy!

    *digs out her lute*

    Tomorrow's quests may take us away
    Our faces lost to the sands of time
    Whether good or evil did we choose to slay
    All that matters is the rhyme

    The bards' songs rise, and fills the hall
    Tales of deeds both noble and knavely
    Whether you ran like a sissy, or rose to the call
    And were impaled 'pon a spear, though bravely

    Heroes and villains, victims and fools
    All dance to the bardic verse
    The lyre our instrument, the words our tools
    To narrate the universe

    So trek on, adventurer, seeker of fame
    Through the cold and wet and monster-filled lands
    We might tease of your downfalls, your ignoble shame
    Like when you sneezed on the Queen of the Sands

    But never forget, as you lie there at night
    Planning your next endeavor
    The bards are a'waiting, with impish delight
    To sing of your failings, forever...

    *puts her lute away*

    I always like bards in the party.
    Who is there to: (when without them?)
    1) Sing a lullaby and tug you in at night?
    2) Sing a victory song and sing of your heroic/epic deeds?
    3) Cry and comfort by your side when you almost fall in battle?
    4) Give you encouragement and unlimited juice when you run dry?

    With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

    They are actually really good to have in a party.

    Griffons are reasonable if you have decent AC and PRR. Looks like their attack bonus is kinda low.

    Also, they take double damage from Blade Barrier. The way they fly make them hit BB twice every time it should hit them once.
    Main: Amossa d'Cannith, Sarlona, casually trying Completionist [<o>]

    Almost-never-played-alts: Arquera - Chapolin - Fabber - Herweg - Mecanico - Tenma

    I want DDO to be a better game. Those are my personal suggestions on: Ammunition, Archmage, Combat Stances, Deities, Dispel Magic, Epic Destiny Map, Fast Healing, Favor, Favored Enemy, Half-elf Enhancements, Monk Stances, Past Life, Potency, Potions, Ranger Spells, Summons, Tiered Loot.

    Bards are fantastic. Now, of course, I might be a tiny bit biased, but still!

    While not the best at any given thing, we make everyone in the party better at what it is they're best at. Stronger/tougher warriors, more potent casters who can go further with their mana, (nearly) endless mana for the casters, and potent crowd control. We're amazing!

    Plus, we can encourage everyone to push on when they're grumbling and griping about the quest, inspiring them with tales of treasure, artifacts, and piles of gold and gems waiting for them at the end.

    And then ddoor away when they get mad that it's nothing but vendor trash!

    I was down on sp's and couldn't run away. And no healer with me, lol.

    It was my own fault. Got a bit too confident.
