The game was back up, but quickly taken down again. People noticed that their account status was not being transferred properly so people had lost their VIP status etc. Not very fun if you want to run premium content you've paidf for and can't get in.

I think the servers will be up again in a few hours since it's a small issue remaining.

Please be patient as we work to deliver these items. Thank you again for being here.
Found in another thread there, posted there by a player :

The LOTRO stream explained a bit of the issue. Basically the hardware not cooperating.
By Cordovan :

I don't know that we'd get particularly technical with what the issues were, but from my understanding it was a series of road blocks that prevented us from being able to log into the games to check them to open them so you could play. A mix of hardware and configuration issues. Ultimately, a check list was made and cleared, and we are now working through the final steps in order to reopen the worlds.
https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea…=1#post6188788

Their check lists probably had check lists. I was specifically talking about issue resolution during the downtime, and the process to resolve it. There was not, for example, one eureka moment that resolved the one thing causing the issue. It was more a matter of resolving issues in a check list format.

Dev's interpretation of what a tank is : https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea…=1#post6189532
The whole discussion is not uninteresting.

Edit : What tips can you give me to plan my Paladin ?
I've been reading through the Wiki, and I want to try to do a rather "proper" build …

My first tip would be to pick a different class!! If you're determined to play a Paladin, ask Peter; that's all he ever really plays!!!!

Thanks. I'm a little bit surprised, though, that intelligence in this build is so relatively high and dexterity and especially wisdom are so low ?
I thought that Wisdom was important for the Paladin's spells, and dexterity for things like balance ?

My Paladin is level 6 right now. First Life. Elf.

Since I rather play alone so far, I've taken mostly spells & feats for solo play.

Edit : Another question : I often get Orbs as loot … Why is this ? I mean, they are not standard for Paladins, aren't they ?

Dexterity isn't very important for a THF paladin. I can post the build for my TWF paladin and you will see that the Dexterity is much higher.

Wisdom is also not important for a paladin. All you need is 14 to cast level 4 max (max what a paladin can do). With tomes I get there even without items. Without tomes you easily find wisdom items or even augments with wisdom you can add to a colorless slot.

I added some into intelligence to get more skill points. I put effort into UMD because I want to be able to use scrolls.

Thank you. I do know that I must put more intelligence into my build for points, too.
I understand now the relatively low level of Wisdom in your build.
I have one UMD item, too.

I guess you haven't played enough lately to see what I'm playing these days. I mostly play on my main who is working on becoming a triple completionist everything. That means he has completed all races, heroic classes, iconic classes, epic destinies 3 times.

While doing that he's using one of three builds.

1. Class build which is a machine gun with class you want to carry, some rogue and some artificer. That is used for both heroic and iconic TR's

2. Racial build which is a warlock with one level of artificer

3. Epic build which is either a pure warlock or a machine with fighter, rogue, arti combo. It depends on the epic destiny being worked on.

So I haven't actually played a paladin in a LONG LONG time.

Corwin, do you remember that USA have started with Daylight Saving time. So your playing time is 1 hour earlier than before. We're supposed to start now.

After some discussion, it seems like the group might be leaning toward low level alts. I'm going to leave Bot (23 FvS/AA gimp) and Phuury (26 monk) epic for the foreseeable future, but I've brought Shadohe around for that daggerlock build. She's just started Korthos and after one quest she ain't worth a bucket of warm spit. She'll improve rapidly, I'm sure.

We probably won't run this new alt group this coming Friday even if we're not on the mains since many folks won't have time to prep a toon on short notice. Most likely, we'll mess around on epics this week if we end up with less than full attendance.

For those of you that already have a toon/build in mind, please share. It's going to be catch-as-catch-can when that group runs anyway, so don't worry too much about how the party shapes up. Pick what you want to run and go with it.

I've taken Reywinnd back to Korthos as a Ranger (Primarily AA) and have just finished all the explorers, but none of the quests. Not sure when I'll get back to it, but I'll try.

I brought Fireflash back around as a Barbarian Wolf build. Did most of Korthos, save for Misery, and into L2.

Where are we taking them to? 4 to catch up with CM's Ranger?

Update landed. You can get your XP pots and raider's box for the downtime earlier this month. REWARD2019, 1/account. The raider's box is BTC, 3 XP pots BTA.

This reply in the forums was cited to be "correct" by Cordovan :

You have to redeem the code by the end of April. Once a character has the box you can sit on it as long as you like…but the box and the weapon inside are both btc, so you need to decide which character gets the box before you redeem the code.

Currently stuck at a eye place, while I should be home in time if I'm not there, assume I'm late.
