Sorry to hear about your father Alrik. I have not checked the Watch in a few days. Prayers for you and your family.

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

True, but Sharn Syndicate (last on the agenda before we dig into the Feywild) is Coin Lord favor, which you wanted badly. Most likely, we'd be thru Sharn in an hour and headed out to Feywild, too, which you shouldn't miss. I think, at least this week, we'll stick with the alts. If you're not ready to play next week, perhaps we'll think it over.

Thanks, Cm.

Since Corwin's only got a couple hours this week, I'd like to see if we can get everyone on board to knock out Sharn Syndicate on the mains. That would probably take about 90 minutes since all of us, even Alrik, have those quests pretty well mastered. After that, Corwin could go do his thing and Alrik could bail before things got overwhelming for the first night back. Peter could punt as well if his sleep schedule needed it. After that, whoever was left would probably jump to epics and muck around for a while.

How's that sound? Alrik, if it's too soon, just say so. This just seemed like a good way to ease you back in gently and Corwin's gotta bail either way.

Sounds good to me, the most important things have been done (funeral is today, Wednesday), and I'm glad for some distraction (which was the main reason why I went to work again Monday and Tuesday).




Besides there is a new Patch now : https://www.ddo.com/en/update-48-patch-3-release-notes

And a new Event ! : https://www.ddo.com/en/news/snowpeaks-festival-guide

Sounds like a plan, then. As long as JM doesn't sleep thru her alarm, we're golden.

Happened to me once, too !



Besides, the new Event is kinda fun … You need keys that drop from special Champions to enter the sliding race, but the race iself is kinda fun. I felt entertained, but to me it was just far too short !

Patch seems to be fairly large. So make sure to hop in a little early/expect to wait a bit for Corwin.

So you'd prefer Prove Your Worth, Slavers, Restless Isles, and maybe Threnal?

Necro1 is fairly boring but also fairly quick.
Necro2 is actually excellent XP if you can endure the Swim of Doom.
Necro3, well, OK, that's inhumane, but there's a huge hole in level 11 content.
Necro4 isn't too bad if you've got an Inferno tour guide and includes a S/E/R run in the Orchard.

I think … well, I don't quite remember. The last ones, I think, yes.
The first two parts I did alone sometimes …
I didn't do the Orchard with you at least, and not the Raid, although I'm not to 100 % sure on that.
What I remember is a a looong trap finding session with Alrih, lots or Umbrag Worgs, and one dungeon with going through tunnels and not knowing where to come out again, and one quest with underwater breathing items required.

Besides, I made an iconic Cleric the other day.
I decided to try oit out and get her to level 15, and her name is Amauna, named after the feline race of the Amaunir in Myranor, a sister setting to TDE.

The Umbral Worgs (and other Umbral critters) are from Necro 2. It's boring, but very high XP for the level. I think most of us old timers don't like it because for a time it was a requirement to hit Necro 2 quests and hammer them for their high XP.

Necro 3 has the Tomb of the Tormented, which is the most aptly named quest in the history of gaming. The rest is meh, but not nearly that bad. Not much in DDO is as bad as Tormented.

Necro 4 (Orchard) actually isn't all that bad, up to the L15 pre-raid. The main issue is to get access to the preraid requires getting all 8 sigil pieces, which never happens in 10 runs or less. I have characters that have a few dozen runs in each quest who have never seen a completed sigil. The good news is that the sigil is permanent these days at least, and most of us should have most pieces already. So we may be able to finish one out within 10-20 runs of all 4 quests. Sure we'll be level 18-19 or so by then, but who cares?

I've never ran the Orchard raid, so I'll let others comment there. There is a nice quiver which can be upgraded with 30% striding that is usable at Level 1. Makes Korthos a lot smoother on later lives. It probably won't drop because we want it.

I have both a shadow crypt opener and a bloody crypt opener if we just want to skip into the high xp parts and not do the painful flagging.
