    Default A few good ghostbanes

    You want Ghostbane?

    I think I'm entitled to.

    You want Ghostbane?

    I want the Ghostbane!

    You can't handle the Ghostbane!

    Son, we live in a world that has ghosts, and those ghosts have to be killed by men with ghostbane. Who's gonna do it? You? You? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for noobs without ghost touch, and you curse the incorporeal. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That those noobs without ghostbane's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the ghostbane because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want my ghostbane, you need my ghostbane. We use words like ghostbane, ghostbane, and ghostbane. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent ghostbaning. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man without ghostbane, who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the ghostbane that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I ghostbane. I would rather you just said ghostbane, and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a ghostbane, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a ghostbane what you think you are entitled to.

    To every ghost there is always an equal and opposite bane: or the force bursts of two loot tables on each other are always equal and are riposted in opposite directions.

    It is by ghostbane alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the ghost and the bane that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains, the stains become a weapon. It is by ghostbane alone I set my mind in motion.

    D.D.O. was having trouble
    What a sad, sad story
    It needed a new loot designer to restore
    It’s former glory

    Where oh where was he?
    Where could that man be?
    We looked around and then we found
    The man for you and me…

    and now it's Springtime for Feather and Ghostbane
    Our loot is Ghosty and Baned!
    We’re pushing new content at a faster pace
    Look out, here comes the banks ability to duplicate!

    Springtime for Feather and Ghostbane
    Winter for Freemiums and V.I.P’s
    Springtime for Feather and Ghostbane
    Come on, Devs, go into your dance

    I run the Q.A. group
    And that is why they call me MajorMal
    Don't be stupid, be a smarty
    Come and join the Ghostbane party

    Springtime for Feather and Ghostbane
    Ghostbane's the new bane today
    Ghostbanes falling from the chests again
    Random Loot is on the rise again

    Springtime for Feather and Ghostbane
    Guildships are sailing once more

    Springtime for Feather and Ghostbane
    Means that soon we'll be going
    We've got to be going
    You know we'll be going to log off!
    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.
    • Fixing physical defense for Rangers and Rogues. It’s ridiculous that you’re better off wearing Heavy Armor and ignoring your innate feats on these classes.
    • Cannith Crafting.
    • Update the named loot to put them on the same system.
    • Fixing the Cannith Challenges so that they can be 6 starred without incredible luck or store bought items.
    • Fixing all challenges to give us decent XP and ingredient returns for the unreasonable time we have to spend in most of them.

    I currently rate this at 6/10; it would be a 9/10 if you mention "Extreme Prejudice".

    I tried. It’s kind of rough to fit in the extra “X”es in “EXXXXXXXXXXXXTREME” into something that you could sing to the tune of “Springtime for Hitler”.

    Edit: I also wanted to do something with “I am loot designer, you are player, I OUTRANK YOU!!!”

    Reach out and touch ghosts!

    Your own personal ghostbane
    Something to throw at wraiths
    Something that's ace

    Feeling unarmed and they're all embalmed
    Can't be slept or charmed, even heal when Harmed
    Life up the repeater, I'll make you a defeater
    It will deliver, I'll craft it on your quiver

    Reach out and touch ghosts!

    Take up the best, put it to the test
    No need to be stressed, it comes pre-blessed
    It works really well, even on a Quell

    Reach out and touch ghosts!

    Your own personal ghostbane...
    Reach out and touch ghosts!

    I'm proud that this topic continues to spread the good news of Ghostbane.

    Default Apologies to the MonKees

    I thought GhostBane was only true in Faerun tales,
    Meant for someone else, but not for me.
    Oh,Wraith was out to get me,
    That's the way it seemed,
    Wheeps and Specters haunted all my dreams.

    Then I saw her Mace,
    Now I'm a believer.
    Not a trace,
    Of doubt in my mind.
    She had GhooostBannne,
    I'm a believer, I couldn't leave her if I tried.

    I thought Ghostbane was more or less a Fighter thing,
    Seems the more I'd swing gave, the less hits I got.
    Oh, what's the use in trying,
    All you get is pain,
    When I needed Ghostbane, I got level drained.

    Then I saw her Mace,
    Now I'm a believer.
    Not a trace,
    Of doubt in my mind.
    She had GhooostBannne,
    I'm a believer, I couldn't leave her if I tried.

    Default I don't always Ghostbane....

    but when I do...I GHOSTBANE.
    I am often cynical and say mean things. It's a WAI "Feature".

    This is preeminently the time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly. Nor need we shrink from honestly facing conditions in our gaming today. This great MMO will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to ghostbane is fear ghostbane—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our gaming life a loot table of frankness and vigor has met with that understanding and support of the gamers themselves which is essential to victory. I am convinced that you will again give that support to the loot tables in these critical days.

    How I imagine the staff meeting went this morning at Turbine:

    Produc Glin: I swear to Lolth I'm going to pistol whip the next guy who says, "Ghostbane."
    Squeak of Doom: Hey Feather, what's the name of that weapon suffix you like with all that goofy **** that only work on one enemy type in the whole game?
    Feather of Sun: You mean Ghostbane?
    Squeak: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    Cordovan & Tolero: OOOOOOOOOOOO
    Honkin * Diaari * Bazongas

    I am created Ghostbane, the Destroyer; death, the shatterer of worlds. The undead night tiger made whole by the Feather of Sun. Who is this dog meat that dares challenge me?
