Wrapping your head around a mountain of MMO content

Bio Break

It seems to me that there’s a big difference when and how you come into an MMORPG. Do it at the beginning, then you’re among company that all shares the same common experience of feeling out a title from the get-go, writing up guides, and sharing advice. Do it later on, then you can feel a little behind but benefit from the experience and writings of others.

But what about when you come into the game many expansions into it, or return to it after a long break? It’s not as if the game waited around for you to join to start for real; it’s been growing and developing for months, the meta (or whatever you want to call it) has shaped and reformed numerous times, there are people who have theory-crafted it to death, and it can feel absolutely overwhelming when you try to get your head around the…

U35 – look at those pretty dragons

Micki's Delirium

U35 was out recently and I’ve now done the quests a couple of times, but not the raid. The theme for the update is dragons, and more dragons. 🙂 We got two new quests, with dragons, a raid with a dragon and a new player race – dragonborn. If you like me like dragons, it’s pretty awesome.

Games I hated as a kid but would love now


Like everyone who reads these pages ; I’ve been a gamer for a very long time – I remember losing entire afternoons to Pac-Man on my 2600, I lost weeks to Streets of Rage, then I lost months to Pokemon Blue, I still lose hours playing on my PS4. Gaming has been a constant in my life, games have always been there.

LE/EE raids week 21

Micki's Delirium

With the recent release of U35, I kind of expected people to be busy TR’ing, and I’m guessing that was the case this Saturday as well. I posted for LE Shroud at exactly 9pm (3pm EST)… and after about an hour we were only 7 people total. Someone suggested we do TS first to try and fill the party, and that worked… well sort of. I posted for reaper 2 TS and got a full party quite quickly. But after the TS run, I again couldn’t fill my Shroud group, so ended up switching to hard.

Tempest spine was fast and somewhat easy. I died in ice again, and a few people died in the end fight, but it was still pretty smooth.

The continued adventures of the youngest Halfling Commando.

Confessions of a Geek Mom

Pink’s little sister, aka The Reason Why We Drink, took another journey into the DDO world recently.  This means, that I get booted off my computer so that she can play as her computer cannot currently run DDO.  I end up knitting on the couch which is usually fine with me, unless I was planning to play myself.  As I was.  But I was out of luck.

She took her fighter into more of the Korthos quests.  She had originally only completed the tutorial on her first attempt.  New experiences and things are very scary for her and can chose a great deal of anxiety.  We have to modulate our tones when offering her help or advice as it can increase her stress.

This day, however, she was on a roll.  She approached the quests with a bit more confidence.   I helped her find the quest givers in the Korthos…

A Dark Stormy night

Tactalicious & Craftalicious

I like Dragonborn.

An ideal character for caster or I can even imagine Pally. I like the look, the rich racial choices and the combination of its racial enhancements and things like spell casting.

I also like the idea of racial reincarnation, but I really think they missed the mark it being the only thing and not combined with say heroic reincarnation.

Lets put it like this; when you do a Iconic reincarnation you also get the heroic past life. The main difference is that you start at 15 and have to go to 30. Doing a Iconic reincarnations don’t give you an Epic reincarnation but it does give you the Heroic past life as well as the Iconic past life.

It’s this type of illogical thinking that makes DDO take one step forward (combining effects because it makes sense) and 2 steps back (because it just is).

What is…
