Any thoughts from the more experienced players on whether I should be sinking skill points into intimidate? Some of the stuff I've read has talked about it as being essential, but others have said to just ignore it, and that I should be able to generate enough threat to tank adequately as a barbarian based purely on my dps. Or are we casual enough that I shouldn't worry about it too much?
Humm...well it looks like I wont be needed to do any utility...I think I might make a barbarian/rouge. I know it sounds weird but I've used it for pen and paper d&d and neverwinter nights back in the day. It depends if sneak attacks can be done with a 2hander or not.

They do, but won't be as effective as those of a full rogue. Before anyone gets into multiclassing they should look into the pure-class benefits (called capstones) they are giving up and weigh those perks against what they're gaining from the other class. Capstone enhancements are generally very powerful.
Here's the list.
If you do decide to MC rogue it is generally advisable to start as a rogue and then MC into whatever else, to get the high number of skill points they get at the first level. It kinda depends how many levels of rogue you want to have.
I went with Fighter. Going to make it a kensei.
Subbing but not able to play right now - 3 month old son, etc.
I played with the GWJ crew at launch and absolutely loved the DDO dungeons, which I've never seen the like of in any other game.
Pfft. I have a 4 month old and more kids, Fed.
I'm tempted to join, but I'm primary caretaker for my two-year-old (wife works evenings from home), and 9 PM is right about when I'm getting him to sleep.
I've thought about it, and if people are willing to accept the possibility that I may be playing with a tired/not-so-tired two-year-old on my lap.
So, if folks are okay with that, I'd be happy to
play a healing/support cleric for the first group.
I'm good with it. I regularly have a cranky 19 month old on my lap while I game.
Are we going to have to do the Korthos quests on normal the first time? I daresay AnimeJ and Toanstation's collective brood could beat the quests together on that difficulty.
The way it reads to me, yea. There's definitely room to roll through them again on higher difficulty if folks wanted to as well, I'd imagine.
I'm all set: human cleric named Mairghred. She's been through the tutorial, and I've spirit-bound her to the tavern. Currently, she has Shield of Faith and Divine Favor prepped, but I'm open to suggestions/requests.
Should I go with human or dwarf for a Kensei fighter? I can't find too much about the human that I'm really into aside from the extra feat, and the armored mastery enhancements for the dwarf look nice but I'm also not sure how much dex or weapons I want to have. I do think I'm going after Whirlwind attack, so I'm not sure what would be good for that kind of build.
Didn't this start off being planned for Diabloday.. I mean Tuesday? I can't make it tonight, sadly. If you guys fill me in on what quests you completed, I will try to catch up before next week.
ok...so I dropped Whirlwind. And I found a guide for Two weapon fighters that made an interesting case for an Elf twf that I wanted to try out. if this build goes to hell I'll just change over to a lvl3 sorcerer that I made on the server a long time ago...not sure why I made that sorcerer a female but its already lvl3 so I'm not going to bother re rolling it.
Hello folks! I'd be interested in joining in if I'm able. I was thinking of going rogue. Not in the crazy, dooming the party as I do my own thing kind of way. I mean the disabling traps and finding secrets sort of way.
Ok, all set here as well. Mellesara, Elven Cleric, Divine Favor, Shield of Faith and Cure Light Wounds set to go.
I'm finishing up dinner and then I'll head on. Fourd, Dwarven Barbarian, carrying a big axe.
I should have posted Kirwinn is my rogue name
That was fun. Thanks Arovin for organizing the group, and thanks everyone else for participating.
