    Default Training Dummy... Developer question

    I think the training dummy on the ship is great for getting a chance to see weapon damage and using different types of weapons. What is difficult is beating the dummy down for a ship buff at low levels especially. Would it be possible to have 1 dummy for checking damage and another 1 for instant click like other ship buffs? Typically when I play my time is limited... I have work, kids, other responsibilities. I Love to play DDO to relax and enjoy the game with guildy's etc. I'm trying to get to next quest or group and I'm beating on this dummy forever... Especially on toons level 10 and lower... It's a nightmare for levels 4 and below. Thoughts and consideration appreciated

    don't hit the dummy, the buff isn't that great
    psykopeta - hoarding pl, for the sake of hoarding, the day i become ubercompletionist will be because there isn't anything to delay it more - thelanis, where the gimps claim to be pros and noobs claim to be pros, no newbies allowed(unless they claim to be pros), we have enough drama w/o them. PS i'm not a pro, maybe if i reincarnate in RL...

    Yep, don't hit the dummy.

    Honestly, I've given up hitting it on my higher level chars, even though I can beat it down in less than 10 seconds. I hate the dummy, therefore, I skip the dummy.

    At high levels It is much faster like 10 seconds or less and I do take the buff because it is fast. At lower levels I feel the buff is definitely more useful and don't want to pass it by. That is why I am asking for a quick click instant buff option on ship.

    Before the AC/To Hit changes, I always got the dummy on anyone who even had a slight chance of hitting an enemy with a weapon.

    Since the changes, even my wizards hit almost all the time when they swing a weapon, so I skip the dummy completely now and don't notice any difference on highs or lows.
