Mixing It Up, Quest Runs May 18th to May 21st

Somehow I have fallen behind in my blog posting this week.  Actually, I fell behind because of a major two day meeting from work and then the holiday weekend so I’m going to try to catch up today.  With that I wanted to highlight the runs I completed last week.  The week actually kicked off some adventuring in another game because DDO was undergoing its maintenance downtime.  So, I started off by taking my low level spirit shaman, Ragnar, through the wild city of Neverwinter in Neverwinter Nights II OC on Monday morning.  Ragnar wound up picking up a few more quests as we continues to explore that intriguing city.  Later that afternoon, I took Erdrique (Level 10) through the quest Caged Trolls on elite as he continues to make his way through his level 6 quests on elite.  Then, while also working on our digital PNP game, I took Rimuldar (Level 23 Wizard/Magister) out into the King’s Forest as I tried to make my way to the quest Unquiet Graves.  I should have planned a little bit better by printing out a map of the King’s Forest because I couldn’t open up the DDOwiki to help locate the quest entrance (between DDO and the PNP session, my memory was pretty maxed out so I didn’t want to open up my browser).  In any case, I did gain quite a bit of experience while hunting through the forest but I never did find the quest but I’ll be better prepared next time.

On Tuesday, I took  Berann (Level 7 Barbarian) out into Tangleroot Gorge.  Berann still has quite a ways to go to complete that area.  That afternoon, I logged on with Hamllin (Level 16 Fighter) and continued my obsession with catching up on his slayer areas and took him back into the Red Fens.  Hammy is slowly making his way to the 3,000 slayer mark but still has quite a ways to go until he reaches the 7,500 mark.  That night, I logged on with Containment (Level 6 Cleric) who is also working on Tangleroot Gorge.  After a quick run through that slayer area, I took him into the Catacombs where he continued on that story arc by working his way through The Old Archives and the Crypt of Gerard Dryden.

Wednesday morning I kicked the day off by taking Rimuldar back out into the King’s Forest, although this time I was purposefully doing some hunting and slaying as opposed to looking for a quest entrance.  That afternoon, it was time to bring Erdrique back on and I took him back into Gladewatch Outpost to take on the hordes of the hobgoblins and their ogre leader.  After I completed that quest, I then went into Three Barrel Cove to work on completing that slayer area and wound up picking up my last rare encounter.  I didn’t log in that night but instead hung out with my wife for our weekly date night.

Thursday, I started off by taking Garrrin (Level 22 Barbarian/Fury of the Wild) into the King’s Forest, who like Rimuldar, is working on those slayers.  I did this prior to heading off to my big meeting.  However, the meeting did last longer than I had planned and because of that I didn’t get a chance to log on during the late afternoon for that run.  But I did log in later that night with Stoorage (Level 12 Fighter).  I was also joined up with Khamelblade and we hit up a few lower level quests including Proof is in the Poison, The Troglodyte’s Get, and Old Gray Garl.  I was able to collect enough experience on him to hit level 12.  I called it a night at that point to close out the night.

Overall, it was fun week.  I had the opportunity to mix it up quite a bit by taking some lower level characters through some of older quests while also taking some epic level characters through some hunting adventures.  The weekend was nice as well and I hope everybody else had a great week and a wonderful weekend!!  Thanks for reading and happy hunting!!

Fun Weekend Full of Challenges, May 1st to May 3rd

Well this past weekend I decided it was a good time to make a push to upgrade Erdrique’s Spare Hand and Ring of the Stalker Level 7 versions to tier 3, especially with the 50% bonus to challenge rewards going on because of the Water Week specials.  This resulted in a number of Cannith Challenge quest runs on Saturday.  However, prior to that, I started off the weekend by taking Sludgge (Level 21 Rogue/Shadowdancer) into the Ruins of Gianthold (Heroic) to gather up some slayer counts out there prior to heading off to work.  When I got home that afternoon, I took Hamllin (Level 16 Fighter) into the Red Fens and wracked up some more slayers out there.  Friday night was an interesting night.  I logged on with Erdrique (Level 8 Rogue) and I joined up with Hellbanisher as we knocked out all of the Necropolis I quests: The Tomb of the Crimson Heart, Tomb of the Burning Heart, Tomb of the Immortal Heart, Tomb of the Sanguine  Heart, and The Bloody Crypt.  During those runs I noticed that we had accidentally completed the Tomb of the Crimson Heart on normal, so we headed back in their again to get it completed on elite so that I could collect the favor.  Prior to running the Bloody Crypt, we both leveled up from 7 to 8.  After those runs, Hell had to call it a night so then I took Erdrique into the Cannith Challenge Extraplanar Palace: Dragon’s Hoard which I ran and completed three times to collected Enchanted Armor Fragments.  I called it an evening after those sets of runs.

On Saturday, I logged on early with Hamllin and took him through the challenge Dr. Rushmore’s Mansion: Picture Portals.  It was first time I took run through this particular version of the mansion and was a little surprised to see the portal boxes in front of each picture.  However, they didn’t prevent me from succeeding :).  I then logged out and didn’t log back in until later that night.  I brought Hamllin back on and was joined by Okhamel and we ran through Picture Portals another three times to get the jeweled goblets I needed.  We then switched characters to run the Extraplanar Palace: Labor Shortage to get aracanalth scrolls.  I logged on with Charlock (Level 14 Fighter) and Okhamel logged in with Khamels.  We then proceeded to blast through Labor Shortage three times.  At that point I had enough ingredients for my upgrades and I switched to Erdrique.  Okhamel logged in Khamelblade and once I finished upgrading we headed off to Three Barrel Cove and completed Prove Your Worth, The Trogldoyte’s Get, and Old Grey Garl.  After that we called it a night.

In comparison to Friday and Saturday, Sunday was a weak night of questing.  However, I did log in with Kolll (Level 22 Ranger/Shiradi Champion) and I was joined up with Friedrice and we headed off in the Tharaskh Arena on Epic Hard.  It was my third time taking Kolll in there on epic hard and this instance didn’t result any better :(.  Once we got inside the arena, the second spawn of enemies instantly drew us into a yellow dungeon alert and that was all it took to defeat us.  We reentered two more times but after the third wipe we recalled out and reset the instance and ran it on Epic Normal instead.  We had absolutely know issues then.

So the weekend was definitely a good one.  I’m glad I was able to upgrade Erd’s items and to hit a new level with him.  Now I just need to revamp the rest of his stuff :).  Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting in Stormreach!!

Low Level Questing Weekend, November 14th to November 16th

Well, the questing activities were a little out of ordinary this weekend and were dominated with low level questing.  With that said, my questing activity actually started with a Friday morning slayer run through the Vale of Twilight with Rimuldar (Level 23 Wizard/Magister) as he continues to collect some slayers from Shavarath.  That afternoon, I did some mid-level questing with Hamllin (Level 13 Fighter) who ventured back into Ataraxia’s Haven and got his revenge on the duergar in the quest Reclamation.  Of course I was also impacted by the server issues later on Thursday night.  After checking on a few DDO related items, I decided to boot up Neverwinter Nights II and took my Spirit Shaman (Ragnar, Level 6) further into the city of Neverwinter and came across a few encounters which allowed me to level up.

By around 1 am EST later Friday/early Saturday the DDO servers were back online which allowed to log in with Erdrique (Level 8 Monk).  I took Erdrique back out into Three Barrel Cove and completed the quests The Troglodyte’s Get, Old Gray Garl, and The Scondrel’s Run.  This allowed me to finish up all of the quest in the Three Barrel Cove area and left me with only the slayers to max out on.  After my run through the Scondrel’s Run I called it a night.

I didn’t get much questing in on Saturday, as that was my data night weekend.  However, I did get Erdrique into Three Barrel Cove to complete his slayer runs out there while my beautiful wife had to work and in between some chores.  Now Erdrique is ready to head off to the Searing Heights and to take on the forces of the Sulataar Drow and the Blood Tide Pirates.

On Sunday I logged on with my newest/youngest character, my casting druid Cannock.  The first thing I did was to give his wolf a new name, Slasher.  I was then joined by Khamelblade and we went ahead to finish off the Korthos Island Quests.  While running from quest entrance to quest entrance, we were able to finish the rare encounters and explorer point quests.  We also took on and completed Stopping the Sahaugin, Necromancer’s Doom, Sacrifices, and Misery’s Peak with little difficulty.  We then headed out to the Harbor and the Marketplace and breezed through Walk the Butcher’s Path, The Sunken Sewer, and the Baudry Cartamon Chain.  We called it a night after those runs.

So as you can tell the questing this week was quite light overall, dominated with low level runs.  The runs were still good as I keep getting Erdrique closer to his next level and I got some play time in with Cannock.  I hope everybody else had a good weekend as well!!  Thanks for reading and happy hunting!!

Enemy Profile-Troglodyte Warlock (Troglodyte’s Get)

The Troglodyte’s Get is part of the Old Grey Garl mini-story arc.  As you can imagine by the name, it is primarily composed of your friendly troglodyte tribe.  I took Harrgon (Level 10 Favored Soul) in here on elite as he still needed to knock out a few of the quests in Three Barrel Cove.  There are four different classes of troglodytes that you will encounter in this quest: plain old troglodyte fighters, troglodyte chieftains (one is an optional named), troglodyte shamans, and troglodyte warlocks.  Of these troglodytes, the most dangerous are the shamans and the warlocks.
Troglodyte Gets Warlocks photo TroglodytesGetsWarlocks_zpscdd523b3.jpg
Harrgon in the midst of battle with a troglodyte warlock.

In this particular quest, the troglodyte warlocks are frequently grouped with their fellow casters, the shamans.  The different types of casters can be a lethal combination in The Troglodyte’s Get, especially on elite, if you aren’t prepared.  The warlocks tend to throw out three primary spells, at least from what I can tell in this latest run, including fireball, hold person, and bane.  They will repeatedly try to land a hold person on your character and then will back them up with some powerful fireballs.  If you do get held, this becomes problematic as the shamans will tend to cast scorching ray.

The majority of the warlocks tend to have around 215 to 245 spell points.  Besides being grouped quite often with the shamans, they are also positioned in some hard to reach locations, primarily only reachable with the use of range spells or ranged weapons.  Keep this in mind because there is a suspension bridge that is guarded by a warlock and as soon as you start to cross the bridge he will immediately start casting on you.

The best defense against these guys is to have something that helps to prevent being held, high will saves, and good fire protection.  If you see one of the them don’t hesitated to take it down quickly, but also be aware of their shaman counterparts.  You don’t want to be taken by surprise by either type of troglodyte, unless you want your questing to end badly .

Harrgon had no issues with these baddies because he was immune to be being held and I had good fire protection from my guild’s ship buffs.  But other characters have had some challenging issues with these guys.  In those cases I tended to range them as much as possible and being out of range of their spells and in those cases where that wasn’t case I took them down first to avoid being held.

In either case, if you plan on running the Troglodyte’s Get be pre

A Run Down of Quest Activities, April 21st to April 24

The week of Good Friday was an abnormal week for me, however this past week was more of a typical week.  The only change to my normal runs was that I also tried to get in as many runs as I could for the Festival of the Traveler.  The week’s runs started out with me taking Berann (Level 7 Barbarian) out into the wilds of Korthos Island for my slayer runs of the week.  So far, I have really enjoyed playing my half-orc falchion wielding barbarian.  Although I haven’t done anything quite challenging yet with him, I like his “feel” and enjoy the play style.  After I ran around and cleared out Korthos Island, I then logged out to head to work.  Once I got back home, I logged on with Erdrique (Level 10 Druid) and took him through a round of the Festival of the Traveler to me get re-oriented with egg hunting route.  After I ran that, I logged on with my other heroic true reincarnated character, Hamllin (Level 8 Fighter).  I was scheduled to take Hamllin through Three Barrel Cove and into the Garl’s Tomb: The Troglodyte’s Get.  The Troglodyte’s Get can be a pretty touch quest if you aren’t prepared to handle a ton of slow, hold person, and fire ball spells being cast at you from a multitude of troglodyte shamans and warlocks.  I made it through the Troglodyte’s Get with little problems and then logged out to make dinner.  I then logged on later that night (while also being logged on with Digital PNP group) and brought on Rimuldar (Level 21 Wizard/Magister).  The first thing I did was to take Rimuldar through a circuit of the Festival of the Traveler.  I then noticed that Rimuldar had never completed the Web of Chaos chain so I started that out with Lords of Dust on Epic Normal.  Using my onyx panther, owl bear, and a exalted angel hireling I had no difficulty getting through it.  Since I was also playing the digital PNP game, things were slow going so I was only able to make it through Lords of Dust.  Will need to hit up the other quests next time.  After that run, I needed to log out for the night.

Tuesday morning started out with a quick run of the the Festival of the Traveler and then a slayer run with Rimuldar.  I was planning on working out in the High Road but since I couldn’t get to Eveningstar (without using the Hall of Heroes from the login screen) I instead went to the Vale of Twilight since I hadn’t been out there in awhile.  It was good to get into the Vale, even over level.  After gathering some Shavarath Slayers, I logged out to head to work.  Later that afternoon, I logged back on with Erdrique and did another run of the Festival of the Traveler.  I then started to take Erdrique out to Three Barrel Cove to do Scondrel’s Run.  The Scondrel’s Run was the last quest Erdrique needed to finish up Three Barrel Cove.  As I was getting ready to head out there, Twotoe logged on and joined me.  We quickly tromped through the pirates of Three Barrel Cove and then entered Scondrel’s Run on elite.  The Scondrel’s Run is perhaps the first quest where you encounter significant numbers of minotaurs, but they didn’t slow us down at all.  After the run through Scondrel’s Run both Twotoe and I logged out to take care of dinner and other things.  I logged back later that night with a character from my premium account, Containment (Level 3 Cleric).  Because Containment is on my premium account, I can’t open quests directly on elite, and this night I was planning on finishing up the Baudry Cartamon Chain on elite, since I had already ran it on normal and hard.  So I started the chain, entering Protect Baudry’s Interest, on elite.  As I was working through the quest, Hellbanisher logged on and he had just finished going through a heroic true reincarnation.  So after I got through the first quest, I joined up with Hellbanisher and helped get through Redepmtion and Sacrifices and then we came out to the Harbor where he opened the entire Baudry chain on elite (Protect Baudry’s Interest, Stop Hazadill’s Shipment, Retrieve the Stolen Goods), as well as The Kobold’s New Ringleader, Durk’s Got a Secret, and Walk the Butcher’s Path.  During the run through Durk’s Got a Secret I was fortunate enough to pull a Muckbane .  After all of those runs we called it a night.

Wednesday morning was a light day in the world of DDO for me.  With the DDO being down Wednesday morning because of the hot fix, I played Neverwinter Nights II instead.  I logged on with Spirit Shaman Ragnar and took his party through some of the crypts just north of Fort Locke.  After work, I logged onto DDO Hamllin and took him through the The Forgotten Caverns.  After that I brought Erdrique back on to do another circuit of the Festival of the Traveler.  I then called it a night and spent the rest of the night with my wife as it was date night .

Thursday was quite an active day.  I started the day with Stoorage (Level 9 Fighter) and took him into Three Barrel Cove for my morning slayer run.  After gathering the majority of the explorers, I logged and headed out to work.  I then logged back on with Erdrique and ran through the Festival of the Traveler, Sorrowdusk Isle, and the first part of Grey Moon Waning (The Grey Moon’s Den: The Trollish Scourge).  I then logged out to take care of dinner and logged back on later that night with Stoorage once again.  Like Containment, Stoorage is one of my characters on my premium account and he was in the process of finishing up the Assault on Splinterskull on elite.  Khameltoe logged on and offered to help me finish up Assault on Splinterskull (Doom of the Witch-Doctor: The Way to Zulkash, Doom of the Witch Doctor: Zulkash, the Herald of Woe, The Last Move: The Way to Yarkuch, The Last Move:Yarkuch’s Last Stand).   After we got through out, I asked Khameltoe if he could open the Sharn Syndicate series for me on elite.  We then headed off and completed: Stand Your Ground, Dirty Laundry, The Stormrever Fresco, The Bookbinder Rescue, and Repossession).  That just left me with Come Out and Slay to worry about.  We called it a night after those runs.
