I’ve been playing a lot of DDO this week. Not only did our Tuesday night static group have a marathon session lasting until 1 AM, but I’ve been doing some solo stuff since then.
The Disciples of Tharizdun made terrific progress, adding a new member last night as well as hitting guild level 5, the perk for which is being able to send guild invites through the mail. Not an earth-shattering boon, but handy. As of just now we’re not all that far away from level 6, which gets us a discount at Divine reagent vendors, which will certainly be helpful to our Clerics. I appear to be the only guild member without a Divine spellcaster, which is fine by me.
I do, however, have an Arcane spellcaster, who has been sitting more or less idle for many weeks. So I’ve been pushing with him to try to get him to level 3, which is the point at which Wizards start to suck less (at level 3 you get access to level 2 spells, which helps a lot.) I’ve been repeating some quests for the guild renown tokens, and at this point I have him up to Rank 9, which is 2 ranks away from level 3. He’s done everything on Korthos Island except for Misery’s Peak, which is not only the highest-level (at level 2) dungeon on the island, but by far the longest. And, I must admit, my least favorite, although it’s quite neat on a number of levels.
