Default Eveningstar Key no longer useable from ship

It's been messed up, I think by the hot-fix, though it might have been the patch (I can't remember for sure when I last used it). If still works, but you have to go into one of the town areas. CM tried it this afternoon, & I tried it a little while ago, both of us with the same result. You get the following error message:

"(Error): You cannot use this item in teleport-restricted areas"

I had no issues on the airship.

I will probably be late, so plan accordingly. No word about working tomorrow.

DST did kick in, I know we mentioned it in chat Friday, but just so everyone remembers. Same game start time as based in US before. So adjust you clocks if you don't have DST.

Bart and Corwin should just admit that when it gets down to it, I will have the final say.

I've been reading up on the DDO forums some of the things coming in during a future U21 patch.

First off, they have stated they will be altering the Akamai Netsession malware to a)not install upon client launch unless it's needed to replace missing files and b)can be uninstalled after a new install without issue. They will also be altering the EULA to be less facist. It will probably still theoretically (in the US at least, and even then only maybe) deny you legal recourse when it is easily hacked and your CC info or identity is stolen.

Second, the Divine sphere EDs are getting more focused. Each will have changes to better suit being used by actual character builds from various divine classes. Unyielding is still a ED used for farming fate points and for a couple good twists. Such as Mass Resists. Yes, that is right. US gets a tier 1 35 point Mass Resist Energy, hitting all 5 types and is an AoE. I see that as a useful twist.

Code:
    Unyielding Sentinel: Tanking, Support, and Healing.
    Exalted Angel: Offensive Casting (primarily light damage & DC casting)
    Divine Crusader: Offensive Melee, some Fire damage
These are the dev-stated goals for these changes. Turn undead and healing stuff was moved to US, Melee stuff to DC, Casting stuff to EA. In general at least (DC still has fire spell power, which makes no sense to me. I'd rather have a melee/healer hybrid than a melee/spell dps-that-doesn't-work-because-everything-evades hybrid. Command SLA is a bit weak for a level 20+ "Epic" Destiny, should at least be Greater Command.

We didn't make much progress on discussing DDO cards last night. Figure I'll put something here and the rest of you can chime in or not as you see fit. I've been looting my daughter's VIP account, so I'm getting extra cards each day.

Have excess: #2 and #7
Could use: #4

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

I read an interesting discussion on Druids and metamagics, specifically Maximize and Empower. While mostly geared toward top level, it equally applies to Mirys now, since my main tactic is to EQ+BoS+Firewall for trash (and everything else), and use Creeping Cold/GCC for bosses. Body of sun does not accept maximize or empower at all. I don't bother with Firewall since it's more efficient to wait an extra tic, so 95% of the time, I don't even use max/emp anyway.

The theory is, for a Druid, you are better off dumping maximize and empower, and focusing on Evo DCs and pumping spellpoints via the Mental Toughness line (which also was upgraded I believe with a small boost to spell critical chance, meaning it's a minor dps boost now as well).

As such, I present, the Elf-Gimp! Dragonmarked Elven Druid. Displacement for added defense. (I never bother to add gear, so all numbers are au'natural. Also no ED selections, though I assumed I could take the Epic Destiny feats for Cold and Electric spell power).

(Skills are continued through the leveling process, couldn't be bothered to add them manually since it should be obvious what I'm pushing).

The Nature's Warrior stuff is mostly for +1 WIS, and extra positive spell power that was sometime added to the cores (+10 per tier, on the 2nd through 5th cores) after I made Mirys' build. This gives her 11hp, 35 Positive SP, and +1 WIS. On my current build, lacking a decent race, I could probably carry on enough points into useless crap to get +2 WIS. I lose a little in Season's Herald, but nothing relevant (mostly Universal Spell Power). Plus, I'd have 4d6 SA damage in Winter Wolf form, so in a pinch I could summon a flame blade and fight in the melee with some effectiveness.

Of course, this is a Future TR-type build, a 4th life for Mirys given the past lives I picked. But it would be pretty much the same, minus two points, if I took Susaidh or Cairii back through as a Druid, both giving good benefits. Only thing with Susaidh is that she has all the short swords for that build. But I have enough for a TR for Cairii, who doesn't otherwise get much use.

An alternate would be Human, who would have +2 CON, giving me more build points to play with, an extra feat, an extra skill point, and possibly more use out of the racial enhancements, though it's a bit tight there, thanks to bad design of the NGE. I would probably push H-Amp and GH over D-marks, since the +4 to saving throws and easier self-healing add a good bit of survivability, at least as much as 8+ minutes of displacement.

Human would also work better with Cairi, since the extra feat could be used to fit in the highly useful Wizard Active PL (+1 to all DCs).

Enhancements are tight, and I'd probably end up dumping some of the Human stuff for Druid.

Maybe we need a new thread for the card trading? Keep all the info in one spot easy to see? Dte I could offer the 4 card.

Bart and Corwin should just admit that when it gets down to it, I will have the final say.

@Az
I'm a level 8 expert, so keep that in mind.

So far, I'm finding the lack of spell points, even relying primarily on my maxed creeping cold and call lightning SLAs, to be a significant problem for a caster druid. Y'all have run with casters of mine so you've seen that I'm usually pretty good with mana management; I don't think the problem is me. Now, my incompetence with reliably targetting ice storm is causing me to piss away some spell points, but even before I got any useful AoE spells I was still running dry pretty regularly.

So the question is how do you get around the problem— build a bigger mana pool, or cut down your usage? Looking at Phuury's build plan, I think I'm doing a little of both. I'm slated to take improved mental toughness, but I'm also taking the metamagic enhancements early on. I'm not doing much in the human tree in order to pay for taking most of the season's tree and spot-shopping nature's tree. I didn't pick up much healing amp (looks like only tier 1), but since the build includes some emphasis on healing ability I figure I'll be largely taking care of myself anyway.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

For me, until I got some better healing spells, I mostly used empower healing to account to boost the vigor spells. Thinking back, I only used the metas on the slas, and used those extensively. Ice storm I'm not fond of, compared to firewall. But for regular spells, at least up until not, I've rarely used regular spells with metas. Even in high heroic level elites.

My caster druid was probably 60-70% melee in the early levels with buffs and healing my primary magic usage. At the later levels when my melee abilities weren't as good as a true melee character, those %'s swapped around and now at epic levels she's 80-90% caster and rarely gets low on mana before a rest shrine appears!!

If God said it, then that settles it!!

Scheduled downtime wrapped up early. There's a moderately-sized hot fix to install.

edit- oops, I lied. You can get the patch installed, but the "worlds" are still down

I came into this world cold, wet, and naked. It went downhill from there.

Evidently, there's a hotfix for the hotfix. Looks to be the same size.

Amusingly enough, I was able to log in far faster, and without load to red, using PyLotrO instead of the standard launcher.
I was using this link, and I got a message that this site "had been reported as attacking". Whatever this means.

I'm using the Microsoft Antivirus stuff right now.
