Well, if you don't you're a goddamn sissy, pinko, faggot, commie that hates freedom.
Well what's all this about then?
Why Dungeons and Dragons Online of course! (DDO for short)
As you can see by this handy dandy awful image I posted, this here vidyagame takes place in Stormreach, which is the major city on the continent of Xen'drik. this all takes place in Eberron, which is the best goddamn D&D setting. Also, it's 3.5 edition.
for more info on all of this setting see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_of_Eberron
Well what is this game all about? You might ask, you presumptuous piece of shit
It's about killing nerds! also, dragons and shit I guess
Also kobolds, you are literally Hitler to kobolds in this game btw
Also, many of your favorite classic D&D monsters make appearances in this including: beholders, mindflayers, dragons, and the much maligned mexican jew lizards.
Ok then, what classes we got going on in hizzle?
Fuck you and your questions
, I'm getting to it.

Wielding divine magic to both heal and destroy, favored souls have fewer spells than clerics but can cast more often. They also get more spell points than clerics and more bonus spell points from special magic items.
Using spells, skills, and powerful magical songs, Bards are the ultimate support characters, simultaneously strengthening friends and weakening foes.
Barbarians possess incredible strength and offensive power. They are not as well armored as fighters, but they can absorb damage and go into a battle rage to overwhelm their enemies.
Divine spell casters and healers, Clerics excel at curing ailments and healing allies but also have the ability to blast enemies with their divine power.
Fighters are also able to use more weapons, armor, and shields than any other class. They often focus their training on a specific set of gear and become masters of their own custom fighting styles. A fighter can succeed in battle in many different ways.
Monks use an energy called ki to perform amazing techniques in battle. They use this vital energy to launch powerful combination attacks and project amazing beneficial effects. Usually fighting without weapons and armor, they can assist allies or destroy enemies, but take longer to master than the other melee classes.
Paladins are supremely resilient and have a good balance of offensive and defensive skills at their disposal. Through their devotion and purity, paladins gain many special abilities.
Rangers are extremely versatile combatants that can act as scouts, wield two weapons at once, and be lethal with a bow.
Rogues use stealth and a variety of masterful techniques to disarm traps and unlock doors. Stealthy and sly, rogues pride themselves on their skill.
Sorcerers are born with the ability to use powerful magic. Sorcerers get more spell points than any other class, and can gain bonus spell points from special magic items.
