    If the phrase were still against Forum rules, you are also guilty of breaking that same rule because you quoted it.

    Think before you post, please.

That seems counter-productive to their goal of making money and continuing to have an income from this enterprise. Of course, I suppose DDO is a special in this regard because the people who enjoy playing are going to continue to play (and spend money) in spite of a clearly and needlessly insulting employee.

    Ok.
    I didn't take it as offensive, more rather like a
    Hi, welcome to the club.

    However, the image posted is one of frown? Scorn or disbelief in what was said.

    I agree the harmonic octave was a comment I added for those more mystically inclined.
    Has to do with numerology. And lots other stuff kinda spiritual, but
    Also to make a point on how the structure was layed out.

    If it was a noob reference, well what's to say. Shes the intern...

    At any rate, got the devs attention, I'm sure,
    And I hope they run with it.

    And if y'all dont recognize what 33 indicates, well,

    It's a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, born out of an enigma, and covered with a a lot of mayonnaise and melted american cheese....

    Hi Welcome yerself.
    I am gonna take a stab here...were you referring to the Base Chakra and the C note that it refers to being the 33rd octave?

    Did I win the prize!?

    IMO, the best end game existed when the cap was stable for extended periods of time. (at 16 and at 20). A wide range of content was created that was additive and there was a volume of things to do continuously at cap. Keeping the cap at 30 will allow for legendary content to accumulate and create a viable end game environment. Pushing for new cap raises 8 months after the last cap raise is the last thing we need.

    That said, 3 new raids, sentient weapons, and a bunch of legendary quests would all be great adds to the game.

    P.S. Hi Welcome.
    Adding levels doesn't mess with TR's or the end-game if they are structured correctly. "Correctly" would be one time xp earned only and no ML of items or questing related to levels past 30.

    In other words, a level 30 can use any level of item and enter any quest in game. If they happen to earn enough xp to get to level 31, then they get some sort of feats or other bonus for that, but otherwise nothing else changes. If they Epic or Heroic TR and relevel to 30, then they instantly become lvl 31 or whatever xp cap they had reached previously.

    Not saying I think they should raise the level cap, just saying they could do it without screwing up endgame.

    Yeah... no none of this is true.

    Very close. That ties in.

    I was envisioning the 33 levels to be the number of vertebrae in the body

    The 8 quests to be a range of 1-7 with 8 being a new octave,
    also corresponding to the seven chakras, the 8th being beyond the crown, or astral space

    And the 3 raids as being the holy trinity (guess which one)

    Kil (heroic and epic completionist)

    Part of the riddle are the names involved...

    What is the gith queens name?

    I find the further complications of this campaign
    Could be unraveled

    8 quests
    New race: kalashtar
    New class: psionicist
    Sentient weapons
    New enemies: the gith
    Level cap 33

    Quest1 to adar
    The first sentient weapon is about to be created. The kalashtar and githzerai have been cooperating to bring fruit.
    The invited heroes journey to Adar to witness the birth.
    The quori send emissaries to stop them.
    The fight ends when the quori boss opens a portal into the astral plane.

    Quest2 to gith
    Githyanki pour through the portal. Big opening fight. like DA.
    The githyanki boss has a silver sword. He steals the five gems for the sword and escapes into the astral plane.

    Quest3 to monastery of limbo
    The heroes are tasked with recovering the gems. The githzerai will be their guides on the astral plane.
    Journey to astral plane. Fight astral monsters. End up at gith monastery.

    Quest4 gem1 ring of spell storing
    Gith outpost

    Quest5 gem2 ring of ancestors
    Dragons cave
    Chromatic dragon named gygax

    Quest6 gem3 braided rope
    Gith castle

    Quest7 gem4 astral mantle
    Open battlefield

    Quest8 gem5 sword of light (shadow)
    Pre raid?*
    Back at monastery to assemble sword


    Raid1 gith queen 31
    Gith fortress
    Guildship assault
    A battle with a wizard queen and her brood
    Of three red dragons
    A host of undead with silver swords

    Raid2 tiamat 32
    Pit of five sorrows
    And a revealing of the five headed queen herself
    Tiamat
    And her den of five dragons
    And consort

    Raid3 dispater 33
    nine hells
    And then to the nine Hells itself
    To confront dispater, an Arch devil
    And his legion

    All to save the Gish


    Notes1
    On the progression
    2-2-2-2-1-1-1 and 2-222-111 and 7 and 33, and 11
    Raids at 31/32/33 make 35 top. Natural is to conform to +3 or level.
    So a 33 running 35 is only +2
    The intro middle and end is a harmonic octave
    Natural to raise max level to 33.
    The true legendary levels.

    Notes2
    I prefer no Poe.

    Notes3
    Thunder and lightning were used in this creation.

    Now to speak of christmas past
    And of christmas future
    What we did get this Christmas was Poe
    Perhaps Poe try
    Because instead of githyanki we got aasimar
    And instead of planes ape we got ravenloft
    But they did a great job
    So hats off
    I never did ravenloft,
    So this was a new experience
    Clothing is kinda funky, specially the feets,
    But overall I'm pretty happy
    But woulda been more happy with psionics
    We did get sentient tho,
    So that is caveat

    Bumping this since there is a new year ahead of us
    And I would still like some of this to come true
    In some form

    Happy new year all

    Edit
    See psionicist class
    In general ddo

    Double take
    I just pulled the mantle of Escher
    Seems appropriate for this post

    Telling someone they're a moron is not ok just because it's better than telling them to die in a fire.
    This is not necessarily true. Context and delivery are key. I bet I can be way more offensive calling someone a moron if I tried a little bit.
