My name is Avrath, I have played this game casually off and on since before it was F2p. (I was never very good but still came back every so often to check it out)
The last time I came back was around the release of Half orc I think?
I always loved coming back to this game, even though I was good I was met with care fun loving people who were a pleasure to talk to and would gladly show you where the traps were and tell you what house to go to for a quest. I love this community, even though I could never find a role that was me.
I came back this recent time to the opposite problem. I have fallen in love with a class called artificer. It is the most fun I've ever had in this game, and the most fun I've had in an mmo since FF11 (also an amazing community).
Since coming back to you, one of the greatest communities I have ever played with, I have been trolled more than even in WOW. My highest before this in ddo was 7 cleric. Now as a 12 artificer I've never done any of these quests. So no, i'm sorry I don't know which house the quest is in. I'm sorry I don't know where the trap boxes are. Yes I maxed my search, and maxed my int, but no my 26 to search isn't quite enough. (and where is the desert)
I'm not on here just to whine, but more curious, what happened to this community? we, mostly you guys, were so much better than any out there, just honest to god good people.
I was refused on a quest this morning because I wasn't TR, I am not 100% sure how to TR lol.
I have about 20 days left in my sub, After that I may put down DDO for the rest of it's life.
Thank you all for listening to me, and hopefully we can remember the noob, for we were all noob at one point, with someone else telling us go to house P, and sharing the quest with us.
