    Default R.O.S.E : Repository Of Sneaky Endeavors

    Welcome to R.O.S.E

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    OVERVIEW


    This thread's purpose is to document the achievements of the skillful few who, when presented with a carefully crafted quest full of monsters with lovingly animated death animations, and the option to use several classes/weapons/abilities/spells to cause those animations in a highly efficient manner, refuse to kill anything.

    Users are to record their accomplishments in the art of non-lethal questing: the completion of quests with a few kills as possible.

    It's also a competition.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    GUIDELINES


    Any quest, heroic or epic, is allowed. If you want to kill every mob in Cannith Crystal and count it as a minimum-kill run, you are free to do so.

    You do not have to be solo
    . Normal and Hard completions are accepted in their own category.

    Quest completion will be scored on time. Time is added on to your completion as penalty for playing the game as intended.

    --every kill beyond the amount required for completion: 30 seconds
    --every second of dungeon alert: 1 additional second per level of dungeon alert.
    --every character level beyond the level of the quest: 30 seconds per level difference. This includes epic quests.


    Users are encouraged to record their entire run. This is for the benefit of others interested in stealthplay, but also for scoring. I respect the technical limitations some may have, so a picture-only submission whose time is below a video submission may accompany, but not replace, a video submission in the leader-board.

    Screenshot of your character's level, completion time, and kill count are required, unless they are visible on video.

    There are no limitations on what you can do to achieve your minimum-kill run. Any item, ability, tactic, etc. is permitted, even ones that are unreasonably overpowered. This includes invis-running: if you're annoyed that a sprint-boosting Barbarian is bumping you off the leaderboard, make your mark in quests where invis-running is impractical.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If you are interested in stealth but don't know where to start, start here.

    Good luck and happy sneaking!

    I sense severe awesomeness arising from this thread! Thank you for this, I think your idea is wonderful and that many will enjoy this thread to a great degree. Can't wait to see it flourish!

    The guide you linked is extremely well written and informative, definitely a good read!
    I lmao over that "unreasonably overpowered" ability but then I started thinking R.O.S.E and heck, that could be useful if it distracts mobs yet doesn't kill them hmmm

    Luckily I have a main pure rogue that I thoroughly enjoy, I will have fun thinking how to utilize it for this thread.

    Hi quezuzu, thanks for overseeing this! I remember R.O.G.U.E., the old shadow lord trial competition, though I was too new to compete in it.

    I do not have video recording capability to compete, sadly.

    I like that you count DA. Will follow thread happily--I hope people post. Stealth runs tend not to be speedy but once the minimum required kills is achieved, speed becomes the only competitive aspect remaining.

    I did an EE stealth guide of Garl and completed it in about 7 minutes sans DA--I am sure someone can beat that number!

    R.O.G.U.E. had other fun stuff as well. Any chance of adding it for flavor?

    By the way, I will be submitting my own completions, and I am fine if this becomes 95% my own submissions. But that's not important.

    This was my second try, the first was redone because I forgot where a lever was. VERY easy quest to sneak. I didn't know how to kill Hathera without getting Abishai involved, at first. Isn't her DR supposed to just be /Good? Pure Good from Unyielding Sentinel wasn't breaking it (but was breaking Abishai DR).

    Well anyways, this time can be significantly improved on. That's what happens when you DDO at midnight.

    Nice sneaky work in there, it's good to see the game played a different way.
    I liked the use of flaming sphere, the foot work to get mobs facing away while you hit the lever and the "sneak->bluff->assassinate combo. Pro stuff there

    Nice comic relief as well by the end when you were DPSing the boss with point blank view and then zooming out to see you were smacking her with a scroll

    P.s.
    Might need an evil weapon to break her DR, I'll check combat log next time I fight her type.

    Any way to tweak the rules for screenshot submissions? I appreciate you listing my grey garl run but I know it does not fit into the video requirements.
    How about two categories of achievement--simply doing it, and doing it faster than others? Then we can pull stuff from the R.O.G.U.E. thread.

    "I respect the technical limitations some may have, so a picture-only submission whose time is below a video submission may accompany, but not replace, a video submission in the leader-board."

    I don't expect to get swarmed with submissions so feel free to just do screenshot submissions.

    Yes, comic relief, that was it, I'm such a clown.

    I know it is a long time since this thread is inactive, but I am interested in stealth playstyle and I am looking for a list of quests that can be played in that style, and if possible with no deaths or as few as possible.

    Of course, I´ve read Stormreach Shadows: A DDO Stealth Guide (https://sites.google.com/site/ddostealthteamsix/home) and there you have a list of some quests to be done in stealth, but I was wondering if there was an updated list or some thread of stealthy achievements like this one.

    By the way, I have not found anything about R.O.G.U.E., someone has a link to it?

    I will be working on a new one: just started a workbook. New aggro changes with stealth coming so that might help:
