There are also a lot of newer players who probably have toons at around your level!

Whats end game like? Pvp? Crafting?

Or is the game based on leveling and exploring and building one character sort of thing?

its heavy on the end game, but there is no pvp. crafting system is still kinda new bug enormous and ever-growing. crafting at first kinda seemed a shitty grind at first, but now that ive reached a crafting level that can make anything i dont know how i ever lived without it Razz

the 1-20 levels are still great, right now there is a bug with elite difficulty however- its just fuck off difficult and will be fixed soon

There is PvP, but not many bother with it. The emphasis is on PvE, teaming up with other players to beat the quest - although many take the solo route too.

You can have a load of characters. If you're a free to play member, you can have two toons on each server. The option to have many more on a single server is available if you use the turbine points that accumulate from just playing the game to purchase this option.

I'll give it a shot when I get a copy of windows, however my play style is more competitive so I may be inactive because I will be trying to play Guild Wars or another game that is PvP oriented.

I appreciate the PvE style and play D&D IRL but I like to focus on only PvP at end game in MMOs. Razz

More PvE than PvP kinda lures me back into wanting to try it. I made an account and even downloaded the game last year I think, but I never actually played it because it sounded group-heavy. I am more of a soloist because I tend be the weakest link in groups unless i end up with a lot of patient and awesome players at my side. lol

I used to be big into FFXI before we ran out of spare money to keep playing and ended up closing our accounts. Now I sometimes dabble in Perfect World, when my internet connect will allow me to.

Long and short of it? I'm looking through my bazillion email accounts trying to find my log in info to DDO right now and if my internet connection permits it, I'll actually make a toon this time! Smile

Cool Smile Soloing is pretty easy to do if you prefer that to grouping. Just grab a hireling to complement what you can do and go. Most of the quests can be soloed.

If you find you like the game and think you'll be playing on a regular basis, I can fix you up with a guild invite.

Hi guys,
can someone please add me to the guild?

I have only been playing a little while so only have a lvl 4 rogue/wizard as my main.

My toons names are:-
* Zephryn Stormsong - lvl 4 rogue/wizard (this is only one that is off Korthos so far)
* Flistern - lvl 2 fighter
* Lazaare Menendez - lvl 2 sorcerer

Mostly, so far I have only really been playing solo all the time...except when I double up with my daughter

Cheers. I hope to hear from someone in there soon.....most people I have met so far are either dicks or know less about playing than I do (but seem to think they are experts)...which is a feat lol

Sent invites to the other 2.

ahh sorry Anto....it's 2 n's.....I forgot I couldn't have the other and had to change spelling cos said it was taken


so the name is:
Zephrynn Stormsong

Thanks heaps

Um...I am a complete noob at DDO.....where do I find the guild invite?
If it is in a mail then I will have to make it to stormreach with those toons first to get it or is there a mail box I can access on Korthos?

What does a guild do? Just the basics....

yes, its in the mail. ill send you an invite to your other toon when i log on later tonight, unless someone gets to it first.

if you are online at the same time as any of our guild officers, you wont need to get to a mailbox, we can invite you directly then. Smile

basic guild stuff is bonus buffs and fast transport, guild chests and storage, and back when there were more of us we had all guild raid parties. Smile

Anto, you should really check out conquer online. You can play on a laptop and it is totally free. Of course there are pay options, but I've made some killer characters without ever spending a dime.

I was told to give name of toon.  Not sure here or where.

I am Jazmyn in Rk.  

Toon in ddo is Jazzygirl.  I just started playing, again.  Made it through Korthos hards and working on Storm.  Never been in guild, so not sure what I need to do.  Almost lvl 4.  I am halfling/rouge specialized in sneak/hide/devices.

I do not usually talk there(ddo).  Please contact my mail or better chance on msn/skype jazmynfun@hotmail.com since I there daily.

With the constant lack of sleepings I'm going to get around to trying this game I need things to do anywho, on the 1/10 how much is it like swtor because that's pretty much where my mmorpg knowledge starts and stops.

Cool. Download it and give it a spin. We're on the khyber world server. You can create two toons on each server for free. If you like it, we can send you an invite to the guild which gives you access to the guild ship - this gives your toon lots of useful buffs for questing.

Truthfully the guild is very inactive - big membership but most don't play. Those who do play have toons at high level. Recommend nudging RK friends who have lapsed from DDO to join you for questing and to see if they'll make a new toon to run with you through the low levels, or put up a group for random strangers to join you in the game. That last option can be surprisingly good fun Smile

If you want to solo the quests, that's doable. Pick up a hireling to help you along (cheap heals).
