    Think there's a thread in the official forums you can post in to fix that if you keep getting that closed thing.

    I just made a new account on a lark and for some reason it worked. I have no idea what the fuck.

    So for that level 2 kobold quest, Butchers Way (or something similar), anyone know where the hidden treasure is? I've been through that a few times and haven't found it.

    Hmm, is that the one where they stole some dude's shit and you have to go back in a warehouse and take it back? It's in all the way in the back in an alcove you have to climb up to in the last room.

    Its the one where some chick is like "man you totally couldn't survive this hardcore Butchers Path" and your all like "I so can WATCH ME".

    The quest is just to make it to the end and kill 80 kobolds along the way. There is an optional thing for finding the treasure.

    Me and a rogue did it together twice.

    There is one room which you have to swim to which is literally empty. He searched around (as did I) though we couldn't find anything.

    Seems rather suspicious for there to be some semi-secret room which is just completely empty. Not even a crate or a critter.

    I bought the Catacombs content for my pali, even though she's now about to surpass it. Got to level 6 with it, but I'm two ranks off from getting my damn Hunter of the Dead prestige. D:

    Still, I took the time to poke around at my gear trying to replace what I could, since it's cripplingly bad (aside from the sword and actual body armor). I ended up getting some +4 full plate.

    Tell me about this quest you guys did. I heard there were scorpions and sexing with them for whatever reason.

    Also, I just did a mildly substantial update to the OP. Some formatting, an inclusion to new people who want to join about how they can play whatever they want and shouldn't be worried about what we need, spoiler-tagged the list of pre-builds because they're stupid anyway, and finally the bulk of updating was for the turbine points section.

    Oh, and the link to the DDO thread that has tons of info about it has been added all over the place to the OP.

    Edit - And what the hell, I put the official log in there too!

    Did you just make that? Or is it pieced together from elsewhere? Much cooler than my 5 min job, but it doesn't show the guild name. I could change that though.

    Indeed, it works quite well.

    The Lookouts was a pretty great idea, even if it got fleshed out and done by a guest artist. I was thrilled to see the guild name was following that comic. :D

    Wow. The Peer 2 Peer downloading is bullshit. I spent the better part of yesterday trying to download the full game with no dice.

    I cut that off and it started over and I'm almost done an hour or so later. o.0

    Okay, or not. Now it looks like it started over AGAIN and now is saying it's going to take 15 hours. They really could do a much better job than they're doing with all this.

    Do same named bonuses stack in the game? For instance, if I had a trinket which gave a +1 enhancement bonus to strength, and a belt which gave a +1 enhancement bonus to strength, would they stack?

    No. If you have multiple bonuses to a single stat from items it will default to whichever is highest, or if they're tied it will simply be redundant.

    As a general rule of thumb, the only kind of bonus that stacks is a Dodge bonus. For everything else, you can have one bonus (The highest) from any type. (Enhancement, Armor, Shield, Luck, Deflection, etc. This counts for spells, worn items, feats, enhancements and racial/class abilities, unless specifically stated otherwise.)

    Someone can probably find you a link to all the different of bonus types in game, but sadly I'm at work behind a very odd filter.

    Key phrase here is "General rule of thumb", you may find exceptions, but the only thing that comes to mind are the racial/class Enhancements that increase your stats, and I can' recall offhand what kind of bonus they are.

    Alright, thats what I assumed.

    Another question: In the pen and paper game, all races have a favored class. When multiclassing with your favored class, you incur no penalties. However, if you try multiclassing with two classes not your favored class, and the two classes are 3 or so levels apart from eachother, you start taking exp penalties. Does DDO have anything like this?

    I ask because I am considering having my 3rd level Elf Cleric take a level in Fighter when he hits 4. Mostly because I want martial weapon proficiency, though the extra feat will also be nice, and I don't think there would be any benefits for taking a single level of Paladin for that.

    it really isntm they all stack into the 500 range or something and take up 1 spot in inventory. Its not really bad.

    There are no multi-classing xp penalties in DDO, but you can only have a total of 3 classes.

    Spell components stack to 1000, I never found it to be a problem on my wizard.

    In my effort to abuse the system they have in place, I started working on getting 50 favor on each server aside from Cannith. TP is delicious!

    Also yeah, spell components aren't that much of a chore to handle in your inventory. In fact inventory management isn't that big of a deal in this game because of how the sell menus work at vendors. They just list out your shit, you don't have to sell items from your inventory window directly like in WoW.

    One slot in the inventory? Do higher-level reagents also work for low-level ones as well?

    So I'm clear (total newb here), if I choose the +to armor for my aura as pally, it doesn't double stack with anything else? So, I should go for Fear (or +save?) resistance since almost nothing else gives benifits to those skills?

    Reagents are specific per spell. If something needs dust, it needs dust. If something needs a pinch of dung, it needs a pinch of dung.

    It's really hard to fill your inventory up, slot wise. You'd really have to do like five quests in a row, all of which have treasures in them, to fill up like one bag.

    Feats and enhancements will provide bonuses that stack. The only time things don't stack is when it's one item and another.

    +1 AC from the Dodge feat and +1 AC from a ring will stack.

    +1 AC from a ring and +2 from another will not stack. You'll only get the +2.

    Edit - Also, the paladin auras are passive and work simultaneously, you don't have to choose which one you use. They're active once you get them. FOREVER.

    It depends on what the bonus is. If it just says +2 to Armor Class, then that is an untyped bonus and stacks with everything. At least thats how I think it works.

    If it says +2 enhancement bonus to armor class, then that bonus will not stack with other enhancement bonuses.

    They stack to 1000 and it's one inventory slot for each reagent. Each spell level has a different reagent, plus there are a few special reagents, like for Stoneskin. Even at cap, you'll only have about 10-12 slots taken total. Remember that as you get more Coin Lords favor, you'll also get more inventory tabs, so it's really not that big of a deal.

    Some spells don't even need them. I don't think my pure pally carries any, unless I'm casting Holy Sword, since the spells he has mem'd don't have a material component to them.

    When you're buying big stacks of items, remember to hold down the control key as you select them and then you can type in the amount you want rather than clicking endlessly.

    No but, take the eschew materials metamagic feat as one of your feats. The 2 more SP is negligible and now no more worrying about mats.

    this is incorrect. +2 to armour class is +2 to armour AC and does not stack with other armour AC's such as the +5 AC part of +5 Fullplate, it will not give you +7 AC, only +5.
