 Rumors and  (or) News  (and whatever I want to talk about) by Sahba Jade:

      • Risia
      • Another forum thread about game difficulty
        • Do most players play only elite difficult, even new players? Is the game that easy?
        • Is there an entitlement-based mentality where people demand no-fail elite completions?

       photo c252592d-6f26-4a06-b564-e7645affb8bc.jpg

  • Patrick has started a PD character and is going to play/ stream starting Thursday.  

 Get to know your Damsels presents: Damsels Trivia!

    • Just a few questions:
      • Where is Mythery?
      • What does Sahba Jade do every time she gets a new Twitter follower?
      • How many server events has Lessah hosted?
      • If a train goes 45 miles per hour north and another goes 30 miles per hour south, where is Mythery?
      • Who is most likely to wipe a Damse’ls Party?
      • Who is Mythery’s/ Lessah’s/ Sahba Jade’s favorite hireling?

 (**psst, read these notes from Myth and tell me she shouldn’t be writing for the DDO Wiki!) 

Stormhorns, Look Mom, it’s a flying fortress with an army of orcs, giants, and gnolls on it!  And a bad bad Wizard.

 A Break in The Ice

  • So, the point of this quest is to defeat wizzy Thamo and on your way to find him you run into a giant names Rungnir who has been prancing around in this cavern taking off his clothes and leaving them lying around all willy nilly. He says he’ll help you if you find his clothes for him. I think you should find his clothes because the sight of a naked giant is horrifying. Kill the wizzy and then kill the giant.
    • Guardian’s Glasses (Level 27) – Vitality +40, Seeker VII, Green Augment Slot
    • Sage’s Spectacles (Level 27) – Intelligence +9, Fire Lore VIII, Combustion +132, Colorless Augment Slot
    • Skirmisher’s Lenses (Level 27) – True Seeing, Protection +8, Green Augment Slot
    • stupid gloves for a wizard and a slashing weapon blah

 What Goes Up

  • So, in yet another cavern, with many little cubbies that have a barrier up to prevent…hmm….I’m gonna go with preventing letting some things out cuz there are a lot of things in them. Mostly evil shadar kai. Sheesh, hate those guys and gals. After lowering all of the barriers and getting a crest to match the crest that some other dude has you get teleported into another chamber to fight more shadar kai and a wizard. Winning that battle allows you to finally get outside where you can see that you are flying through the air on a glacier, wheeeeeee! First have the rogue go into an area with a bunch of traps and chests and open the correct one. You will see the others later. Take down three pillars, kill everything. Win. Jump off the side and the aforementioned chests will plop down in the snow nearby.
    • Guardian’s Ring (Level 27) – Sheltering +24, Strength +8, Yellow Augment Slot
    • Sage’s Ring (Level 27) – Potency +92, Charisma +8, Wisdom +8, Yellow Augment Slot
    • Skirmisher’s Ring (Level 27) – Constitution +8, Thunderstruck, Yellow Augment Slot
    • Consuming Darkness – Ring – Bound to Character on Equip seeker and combat mastery
    • Boots made from a goat with some augment slots and random effect. Has anyone seen any goats around here??
    • Monk stuff blah
    • You can teleport to these far-off areas once you have walked there once.  Touch the “Harpers Camp”  and then you will have it.  Or spend shards and no one wants to do that!

MISC

  • Mythery Says:  Protect Mythery at all costs. You are expendable.
  • In case of emergency, giant underpants can be used as a tent.

Housekeeping!

  • New shows will go up on the Damsels website and be linked from the CTH as well that wasy I don’t have to do double work! <—–LIES! All Lies! The show is up at the CTH!
  • Also we have an iTunes feed but for now I will keep posting the cast to YouTube with pics and fun stuff because the video projects are fun for me and I learn something new every time I do it.  So I’ll do it until I get tired of it.  Or if there is an outcry from the DDO community for me not to stop.  :D  Big thanks to Mythery for squaring the iTunes feed away without breaking the internet!
  • We can haz a website Damsels of DDO dot com!
  • The Adventures of Sahba Jade!  What’s Next?  Wolfpack in heroics.

DDO Cocktail Hour Episode 79, Permadeath 2, The Resurrection!

Welcome to a very special episode of the DDO Cocktail Hour where me and a few of my guildies discuss what Permadeath is all about, how it has evolved as the game has evolved, and where it’s headed as the game goes on!  Listen to find out why halflings should never be allowed around explosives!  Thanks so much for listening!

 

Here is the link for the episode!  Just left click and play or right click and “save as” to download!

powered by podcast garden

Disclaimer:  Permadeath is a style of gameplay that uses self-imposed rules in order to make the game more challenging and offers a closer approximation to pen and paper D&D by disallowing the use of resurrection shrines or store-purchased rez cakes.  If you die in a Permadeath party and no one in the party has the power to raise you, you are dead.  All your money now belongs to the guild bank.  Choose one item to “will” to your next character, delete (or leave the guild), and reroll.

**We don’t go into many of the rules we covered in our first Permadeath show that can be found here!

 

Where is Samius?  Wut?

Getting to know you!  

Favorite Death of all time?  Yours or someone else’s?  

(this is one of the reasons why we play, not just for the elation of quest completion by the skin of our teeth, but for the waves of crushing defeat and the “laughter” that comes with a good death.)

  • “Hey Guys, Watch This!”  Ding!  You’re Party member had died!
  • “Thacko” The afk, wife aggro death. The Real Mystery of Delera’s Tomb

Let’s talk Rules, because for every rule you make, there is always someone who will try to work around them.  DISCLAIMER!  The rules and game play situations discussed here are strictly for the Sublime Permadeath Guild on Thelanis.  Other Permadeath may have slightly different rules.  I’ll talk about a few of them, but not all.  

  • Death.  What counts.
    • Lag
    • City Deaths, as in falling into Lava in the Twelve
    • A party wipe, our last party wipe was in Thunderholm.
    • Let to talk about the proper way to raise a party member.  And the IMPROPER way to raise a party member.
    • Some PD Guilds have a constitution rule, as in, you can only be raised as many times as you BASE constitution will allow, and that’s over the life of the character.  Say for example, your base con is 12.  Your character can only be raised 12 times over his/ her adventuring career, and after that, you must delete that character.
  • Most dangerous levels for a Permadeather?
  • Most Dangerous Bosses/ Situations for a Permadeather?
  • Hirelings?
  • Ship Buffs
    • What is a Ship Buff?
    • PD Halls of Valhalla, Level 7 “Untouchable status”
  • Commodity Items.  Potions, Wands, Scrolls.  Why not outlaw those?
  • Auction House?
    • Does the use of the Auction House ruin the experience?
  • Shard Exchange?  Trade Channel?
  • True reincarnation and Epic reincarnation
  • Trade restrictions
  • Crafting

Questing Rules of Thumb:  

    • Difficulty
    • Traps?  (Everyone has a job, let them do it)
    • Aggro Management
    • Meta gaming, No spoilers etc
    • Grouping level range… Sometimes you have to solo
    • Communication.  Take care of yourself.

Always take two halflings because the first one might wiggle off the hook and you’ll need a spare.  

Personal Guidelines

  • Lessah
    • From My mentor Tupe…
      • Don’t spend real money. It might be over tomorrow and your money with it.
      • If you have an enhancement, spend it, if you have a level, take it.
      • If you have money, spend it.  Better to be broke and alive than rich and dead.
      • Fortune favors the bold.  If you aren’t on the verge of wetting yourself at least once per gaming session, you are doing it wrong.
  • Chai
    • Many of the “flavor of the month” style builds do not always work in PD.
    • Some builds that would be “suboptimal” to most, actually work better in PD.
    • Abilities with longer cooldowns are more tolerable in PD than regular play
    • We put alot of abilities you see labeled “useless” on the forums, to good use.
    • The Dandy Tank
  • Tupe

What do we think of?  

  • Level 30?
  • Champions?  Wassup with that?  True Seeing?  Bypass Fortification?

Other Permadeath Guilds on Other Servers (that we know of!)

  1. Sublime
  2. PD Halls of Valhalla on Ghallanda
  3. Mortal Voyage Permadeath Guild on Argonnessen
  4. DDO Forums!  There are plenty of guilds, look at all of them!
