    Rolled up a character on Khyber, my others are elsewhere. Toss an invite to Jaedlyn when you can.

    Some people are like slinkies, useless, but they always manage to bring a smile to your face when you...push them down a flight of stairs.

    Hey, so since NO ONE was playing, I kicked out the inactives as a few of my friends have started playing this again. If you wanna try it out and join up and enjoy leveling a guild and (as soon as we're 15, 11 now) have an airship, join up! Fancy Lads on Khyber. Send a tell to Sniperguy in game, I'll get more officers up as we get more people. Or PM me on the forums and I'll keep an eye out to invite you.

    So I just started playing this game with a few friends. One of them has a VIP account with lots of neat perks, but the rest of us are all free-to-play. So far I am enjoying myself quite a lot! I like how VIP bennies can be shared. So uh, is there still any interest in this game on these forums?

    I want to play it, but it's a bit annoying on my HDTV (where my computer is hooked up) as the icons cannot be resized.

    I've actually been poking at the game again recently. Like a lot. But most of what I've been doing is trying out some build ideas (not that I see them to completion) for some classes. I thought I could make a melee cleric work with a shield and one-hander, but that wasn't working out for shit. Lived forever sure, but couldn't kill things in a timely manner at all. That six second timer on Improved Shield Bash (auto shield bashes during your attack sequence) is awful. If it was four seconds it might actually work out better.

    So I just did some reading up about the test server development going on for this game. I can't decide how big the changes are or not.

    The biggest thing is the new enhancement system they've been working on. Apparently it'll still work on the 4 points per level idea (80 total) but the menus will be structured like actual trees now. Plus, enhancements themselves are getting changed (removed, folded over with others, buffed, etc, and all of them are getting reduced costs; either 1 AP or 2 AP at most). The big thing this presents though is that all the classes are finally going to have all their prestige lines available. They rolled the Paladin's Hunter of the Dead and Knight of the Chalice into the same line from what I saw.

    They're also overhauling the stealth mechanics. New icons are going to be added to indicate if monsters hear something or are actively searching for something. You'll also have indications via highlighted footsteps to show how much you're being heard moving around - white is in the clear, progressively red is heard - when the red circle jumps from you, you've definitely been heard and approached. Along with all this they're changing the monster AI so that it reacts more dynamically and also doesn't cheat (that sort of bullshit auto-honing that happens in video games). The incentive for removing the cheating behavior is two-fold; first, it's dumb. Second, it actually drains server performance (and communication with the client even), because monsters have a chance of detecting you no matter what every 6 seconds right now. What this means is that when monsters hear you sneaking around, or you try to stealth-exit combat (which is going to be possible and is a big goal with these changes), they'll start making random attacks or searching the immediate area. They'll give up after a while and go back to wherever they started. Plus, ranged attackers won't just keep firing at you with auto-aim. At most they'll aim for your last known location.

    It's all a pretty tall order. There's definitely more changes but yeah, the devs don't seem to have given up quite yet. But they kinda move slow.

    So I tried using the support ticket system to request a free key to play this game, but I have gotten no confirmation email on my ticket request. I feel like this is a very poor system to allow people to play your game. Is it even still up and running?

    So because I'm bored I still poke at this game to look at things.

    The Enhancement system change to making the game more like WoW's old talent system happened, and it's kinda garbage but kinda awesome to some extent. Rogues can enhance their way to using Dex modifier for their damage and hit (without feats). Sorcerers pretty much drive hard for Spell Like Abilities because metamagic can be used at no cost.

    Today a patch deployed to make leveling faster, and the Eldritch Knight line for Wizards and Sorcerers opened. It's kinda garbage.
    http://ddowiki.com/page/Wizard_Eldritch_Knight_enhancements

    It encourages you to melee, but doesn't encourage offensive spell-casting. Despite giving you spell power. So I guess you're like a lame battle cleric only you can't heal through normal means for your class. And a lot of what you end up with the cleric starts with.

    The thing about the enhancement pass that's fantastic is that you can dip into all of your prestige lines. So for instance, a palemaster can take a few of the archmage spell-like abilities. And if you multiclass you get all of your classes PREs. My only gripe with the enhancement pass is that it made arcane archer terrible.

    Meanwhile, it was amazing for Tempest rangers. You can have arrow deflection on a 2 second cooldown, all through enhancements!

    IMHO Arcane archers have become pretty insane. Paralyzing arrows as a toggle (or maybe you want banishing/smiting arrows?). ACHIEVABLE BY LEVEL 6! Note that top level paralyzing arrows are better than the Improved Paralyzing ability (DC26 vs DC25).
    Not to mention that with Soul magic you can launch dispelling or shattermantle arrows every few seconds (dealing 3x damage and devestating anything relying on magic).
    Moonbow and Arrow of slaying? 250 damage every 30 seconds? Multiplid by crits?

    Not to mention that by level 20 your bow counts as a +7 bow. So feel free to load up on those other effects.

    P.S: Infernoshot+Soul magic is also pretty nasty on bosses. Once you've built it up it deals 20d6 every 2 seconds.
    If you don't want to dig deep into the AA tree just dipping in for 6 points (7 points if you want Morphic arrows, which is nice vs skellies and zombies). Those 6 points nets you conjurable returning +1 arrows (never bother with a quiver ever again) +100sp and Magical Training (which is nice if you're not a primary spellcaster).

    I've been glancing at this Eldritch Knight crap a lot and I think I finally have a viable use for it. Splashing into it as a Warpriest (from the Sorcerer angle since Charisma is a shared thing). It's just a matter of how many levels. At least 3, to get access to one elemental weapon toggle. But 6 could work, for the stronger damage on the toggle, plus some arcane spells like Knock. Then again, arcane failure chance.

    EK is still crap from the "spend majority of points here" angle though. Bleh.

    Sure about Warpriest? I'm thinking splashing two level of sorceror splash as monk (probably henshin mystic since they have a nice fire/force thing going. Or Shintao).
    In exchange for some pretty meh monk abilities (though granted the Henshin capstone is pretty nice) you get a a boosted version of Mage armor and Shield (as very cheap SLAs no less) plus some other goodies (cheap hitpoint boost as well as a 75% boost to wands&scrolls for example). Now splashing 2 or 3 levels is a tough choice.
