    And you can't pick quest rewards from doing Misery Peak again.

    This is a lie. If you haven't done it before you get the reward once no matter what.

    This is what I'm saying. Once you do the Misery Peak quest and get your reward, that's it. You can't repeat the quest and expect to pick from that reward list again.

    This is fact, as I've done this process a lot of times on many characters over the last week. Tried and tested.

    Also I decided to give another purpose to the OP: there's a section at the top that notes what sales are going on with the DDO store.

    Sorry, I misunderstood what you wrote. I thought you were talking about skipping korthos, not just leaving once you finished and then coming back. Oops.

    Don't worry about it. Not a big difference. As human, you'll get an extra feat, so you can always take Khopesh which is a good DPS weapon. You won't get the Dwarven Axe enhancements, but the Khopesh has a better crit range, so it's very good.

    Break-dancing or anything near that dances are always the best in any MMO. Well actually, LOTRO had some pretty good dances. Other than that, break-dancing is the way to go. Human dance is pretty funny in D&D.

    I poked out a build for my paladin, which still achieves what I had wanted to do anyhow only now I know how to do it and fix the flaws as best I can. I also found out I have to take up one of the faith followings and the advanced form in order to get Hunter of the Dead 3. It's all good though. It gets me the ability to exorcise extra-planar enemies the fuck off the world. And my attacks will have a chance to insta-gib undead.

    Aside from that I should be able to throw out mildly decent heals with what spell power I have.

    Edit - The insta-gib undead triggers on critical confirmations, so that'll be fun. What's better to support that, doubling the crit range via feat or getting the +4 confirmation on crit feat (I've never been fully clear on what that means)?

    For citical hits, you first have to roll within your crit range ex: Longsword, 19-20 x2, then there's another roll, that if you hit the opponent with it, the damage is critically multiplied. 1 attack, but 2 rolls to make sure you hit them that hard. Personally, as a paladin with a good BAB, increasing the crit range would be better for you. You're going to hit, might as well increase the chance it's a crit and rely on your basic combat ability to carry it home.

    I like how paladin-ish my paladin looks in her full plate. I also like the fourth attack animation that sends her leaping in the air and off to the side.

    I also love how even removing the UI from the screen still includes your mouse-look target on the screen.

    Edit - Using the middle mouse to capture screens from other angles while doing anything active is hard.

    Still reaching for rank 23, though I'm fairly close to it now. I've been slightly disheartened in playing a lot because of several things; first, content lockout that's prevalent at my level (like the Catacombs, damn). Second, the ability to solo drops substantially when you go from doing the harbor quests to... anywhere else. Even stuff in the harbor.

    People should post screens more often I think, at least for the next short while. I'll be plucking them and adding the choice ones to the OP to show things off. Maybe we can arrange for a guild screenshot to fit at the top. :P

    This game is not a solo game. Its D&D and D&D is and always has been a social experience for everyone involved. This game is very much geared toward that same social experience, a couple of guys adventuring together in the evenings. Also i'm lvl 9 and i've yet to experience any serious content lockout that causes me not to enjoy the game or to have nothing at all to do. Granted i also enjoy repeating some adventures because they were fun the first time and i want to do them again but harder ect.

    Content is now all on sale too which is cool, im gonna try to get a couple adventure packs tomorrow if i can manage it.

    Yea, but sometimes no one from the guild is on, or the guild is already in its own groups... I know I've been frustrated when I have been on because for the most part, there's no one to group with around. :P

    The crit range feats are a must for melee. Pick whatever type of weapon you're using and get that feat. The crit confirm feat isn't worth it. If you're having problems confirming crits, get a weapon with seeker on it. At end game, most melee are using the Bloodstone, which is a rare trinket that drops in the Desert wilderness area which gives +6 Seeker on it. It helps confirm crits, but also adds to the damage before the crit multiplier is applied. Oh yeah, if you're using a crit based ability, pick a weapon with a big crit range (Scimitar or Kukri for one handed slashing, Falchion for two handed and Rapier for piercing).

    Technically you do. There are bonuses during quests that add to your exp total depending on how many of the enemies you kill. I think when you kill all present it's called conquest bonus. Before conquest is onslaught, which is a lower percent bonus, and before that is aggression.

    Is it a huge bonus? I ask this because I'm currently playing a Cleric, whom is focusing on defense and spellcasting/healing. All of my spells so far are buffs or heals, and my melee and ranged attacks are weak.

    Just want to make sure I'm not being overly penalized for being the healer.

    Yeah it's fairly refreshing to have puzzles and such.

    Only downside is that it takes a long time to download for me. Now that I've beaten the starting area I have to wait for the game to download stormreach (or maybe the whole game, not sure).

    So far enjoying playing my cleric though :) From my random pugging and such, there don't seem to be many arcane spellcasters. So I might play a wizard or something a bit.
