    Default Something Fun to talk about.

    Well, let me start off by saying I just started my cleric life, I am now level 12, and because as part of a discussion in the past about healers and divines, I opted to take up a bet about this life path for my main toon.

    Well, ok, the rules were simple enough, I needed to be a pure cleric, and needed to do something other then "just heal" with that put out, I then needed to pug my quests and I personally don't put BYOH in my LFM's.

    Well so far, the first 12 levels have been pretty smooth sailing, I am a War Priest, using a Sword and Shield, and mainly a melee build, figured that would be enough to make things fun, and, no one seems phased by this, I toss a few heals around as needed, but never anything great.

    To date, the craziest thing I have had happen was while doing the pit, and I had someone join my group and then proceed to do 3BC quests. never said a word either, just joined the group and started to 3BC.

    I am still stunned they did that.

    You're doing it wrong man, 1.) Should've been an elf, 2.) Should use two long swords, 3.) don't put byoh but don't heal :P

    It wasn't me. Glad to read that your experience with the populace of Orien hasn't been aweful. I read somewhere that we as a server just get things done. Good luck with the rest of the cleric life.

    My first life, and first toon on Orien, was a 2HF HOrc warpriest (19/1 ftr splash). This was about three years ago. I thought it was pretty fun - much funner than the barb I TRed into. I wasn't in a guild, so I always pugged, and since I was new to the server I was relatively gimp.

    Only ever had two problems.

    First: Tear of Dhakaan with a squishy arcane who repeatedly shot his paltry wad of sp in the first encounter after shrining and then insisted on "contributing" by pulling out a sword and charging into battle, usually in a different direction from the rest of the party. Needless to say I ended up carrying his stone and muting my sound while he complained about my crappy healing and the rest of the party mocked him in chat.

    Second: In a shroud run someone noticed I had a Min2 maul and launched into a tirade about how it was a total waste to use mats like that on a cleric. They seemed to find it personally offensive.

    My first ever Greesteel was a Maul... I still carry it just because of that.

    Yah, I gotta agree some of the things that people get off about really boggle the mind.

    Also, I wanted to take 1 level of fighter, but, as I said, a part of this was to be a challenge or bet if you will, that I needed to pug 20 levels as a pure cleric, and not play a "healer" and see how it goes.

    So far, some things have made me scratch my head, but no one has given me any rage about the fact that I am not healing that much, or the fact that I am charging into the fights with a weapon in my hand.

    Almost convinced myself I'm going to make my next life 2 rogue 18 bard shadar-kai. I have a couple weeks to think about it while I round out 20 completions in CITW.

    Yeah, but Ungood. That challenge was posted months ago when the whole BYOH controversy was going on. People have come a long way since then on lightening up on divines.

    Ture, but I said would, and the passage of time does not change that.

    Also, as I see it, now is a great time to do this, to see if things have indeed changed.

    Heh, I've got a level 27 19C/1F Horc, and he's my favorite character. I pug on him quite a bit, but other than the occasional "Do you heal?" questions (19C and they're asking if he can heal? Sigh. Of course he can. That's what Radiant Aura is for!) I don't get much grief when I start swinging whatever Greataxe or Falchion fits the current situation...
