    I'm a couple bubbles from level 4, and already sick of kobolds.

    Thats just in your imagination. Luckily after the harbour you don't see them even close to as often.

    Anyone have an idea why TurbineMessageService.exe won't go away? Kind of pissing me off.

    Oh and there's two of them.

    Edit: I ended the processes, and they open right back up... one is around 5000k, the other is 90,000k. They're both taking up CPU cycles and fucking with my hard drive and internet connection. :(

    If you're playing for the first time, they have it set up to get you playing right away and it continues downloading the rest of the game in the background for quite a while. That's what the process might be.

    No, I've been playing for days. The process just would not go away no matter how many times I ended it. Only rebooting fixed the problem.

    Alright, I'm downloading this now to play with you folks.

    I'll probably make a Paladin seeing as Monks aren't free(If I like the game I'll probably pay to unlock the Monk).

    Mostly just huntin' monsters.

    someone was saying rogue, but we have quite a few rangers, not sure if they can pick locks and sense traps too though. Also not suprising cannith has a que, its free to play and actualy a quality game. As long as you dont try to play it like a real MMO.

    I have a turbine account, but no former DDO subscription. Do I have to make a fresh account for all this?

    I put in some support request, but I don't know how long this will take.

    Nothing happened automatically, I tried to log in and it told me I don't have an active DDO subscription on this account.

    No more rangers, we have like 4 now.

    We have one bard in the whole guild. But really play whatever you want, the guild seems to be filling out nicely. I will be adding more officers to the guild as i notice who is the most active out of us. That way i can try to have it so there is a better chance of officers being on.

    Well it's good to know someone is in the exact position I am in right now, came here looking to see if anyone had any idea as to how I could go about getting a key to plug into my existing Turbine account. I guess I'll wait to see if support gets back to me or if anyone has a way to do this.

    I will make a new Turbine account if I have to, but I'd rather not if I can have everything all linked up since they are the same company after all.

    Anyone else having this weird bug where their clothes stop showing up and their face goes to default? Relogging, restarting, unequiping, zoning and any combination of these haven't fixed it. And it has happened to two different characters AND my husbands.

    Got an elf rogue on Cannith: Agielle.

    Not really playing that much though. Also, the 750 island kills quest is retarded. Meh, at least it'll get me to level 3 though.

    I've never had this happen, and i've never heard of it. I know on my old PC when i played this in 06 this used to happen when my PC didnt load the clothes for a little while and they'd look like some kind of default clothes for about a minute. But never heard of them randomly changing.

    Our highest lvl is lvl 4, so nobody is way up there yet. We've all been running things as a group so far. There appear to be a lot of new people joining up every day though, it started with just Axen and I and now its probably 15+ people? It's only been a few days and at this rate it will be tons. Once you get out of the newbie zone you will be lvl 2 and good to roll with most of the group at the moment. Punchbot got out of the newbie area and joined us on our quests right away.

    The correct answer is no, because you stopped doing your BT campaign! -_-

    BT? What does that mean? o_O

    Also I actually spent some of the free points they gave me. There was a quiver in the shop that has 4 slots, of 1500 arrows each.

    everytime i click SUBMIT at the account creation, the site takes me to a white turbine site that asks me if i want to play ddo for free, which i click, and then it takes me right back to the account creation site, blank.

    You can level as much as you want, the unlock items for leveling are quest loot more often than not. So i dunno what you're talking about.

    You just have to ask yourself the real deep questions then because only manly bad dudes can be monks.
