DDO Orien server catch all - Static Group nights Tuesday and Thursday 8PM EST

I'll play DDO if it's happening, but I've got plenty of other things to occupy myself if we want to skip it tonight.

I'd love to play DDO tonight, but am being titrated on cpap tonight. To be honest, I would totally trade this for DDO.

I was wondering about GW2's effect on turnout as well.

I'm not playing it, so I'd be around for DDO if other people are, but like 4d I've got loads else to play/do if the majority would rather skip a night.

OK, lets cancel for tonight and plan again for Thursday.

So how many people tonight still need to flag for the raid?

I will only be able to stay on till about 10:30 tonight (not guild wars related) But hopefully we can get everyone who needs it flagged and attempt the raid one of the nights next week.

Last quest I did was the one where we blew up the place, and I saved everyone's butts with a heroic application of Turbine points.

That is the last one before the raid

I believe Majeure is successfully flagged.

Oh man, I totally blanked on it being Thursday >_< sorry guys.

Free item of the week:
Bracelet of Friends
Use Coupon Code BF4329 1/Account

Edit:

They also have 250 Turbine Points off a DDO Store Item Of Your Choice! (1/Account) Coupon Code PCW250. Which stacks with the normal sales.

I just used that code along with the weekly sale to finally get myself the Shared Bank: Item Storage for only 871 when it normally runs about 1440. I've been saving up for that one forever.

Can you use the code to get 250 pts of item for free?

Im not too incline to throw money at that game yet. I'm not too invest yet, and lotro left me with a bad taste for turbine pts...

EDIT : Seems I have a total of 550 pts, 500 from buying the Half Orc bundle when it hits Steam, and 50 pts from left over I had from a previous character.

So, with the code, I could get something at 800 pts or lower.

What would you guys suggest for someone starting new? ( i got no quest pack or such )

I would get the Vale of twilight if I had to pick one

I grabbed a low level quests pack. Was 250pts, so it became free.

As I have read this thread, coupons are somewhat popular, and I can skip the level 16 quests you told me about for now I'm just level 1. Still in the starting area as well.

If that's the second raid, I can only imagine the nightmarish dickholery they have in store for the higher level ones.

So much fun! Thanks everybody!

The raid added in the expansion has an escort quest in it :Shock:

Thanks for a great time last night and also for helping me do complete the flagging quest so I could join in the raid.

Don't think I'll be on Thursday but if you guys do fight the dragon, take lots of screenshots!

Yup. That was a very good, challenging time. And, as a bonus, Fourd hit level 10.

Much fun was indeed had last night. I actually went through it a level down from where I should have been; neglected to level up following last week.

I won't be able to make it tonight. I have to do some work on a site for a beta launch tomorrow.

What is on the agenda for tonight? Are we going to make another attempt at the Void of Night - this time with enough time to kill that huge frakking dragon? Do we want to do a level 16 night this week - maybe Thursday?

Good news, though. Atrasina, my Rogue, hit level 9, and she now has a whopping 100 hit points (way up from the 73 I had before). I might survive a failed trap save!

I get to do some emergency patching overnight of our VPS which means I will need to get to sleep early so I can wake up to do the patching. Don't expect me on unless I am unable to get to sleep.

Sorry.

I would not mind making another attempt at the dragon on Thursday.

I'm good with trying the dragon on Thursday.

As for tonight, it looks like there's still plenty of level 8ish quests we could do on elite. Just a matter of picking them.

Everyone still on Orien server? I have a couple characters but don't know what server they are on currently, trying to reinstall the game.

We are pretty active on Orien. We usually get around 9-12 players on a Tuesday or Thursday.

Oh and hopefully we'll get another crack at that Red Dragon tonight. Too bad we have go thru that really long dungeon first. Still should in theory be a lot simpler now that we know what to do.

I really hope there is some other solution to the giant lava room, because leaving two people stuck on platforms while the rest of us go through the dungeon is pretty crappy.

It does suck, but I don't think there's another way. Even so, it'll go a whole lot faster now that we know to send most of the party, including the two quest items and someone who can make a strength check, through the left door.

I know my Rogue can't make it with a Jump spell, but can anyone else do it? My monk could, I'm sure.

Online guides say send wizards with dimension door (Majeure has Dimension door and jump). Once everyone else cleans everything out, then DD back.

trying to download the patches now. on free, so not sure what class/race I'll make yet
