Moving Forward

Posted: September 2, 2012 in Perceptive Gaming


Recently, I took my first step in Eveningstar. I had taken a look at it while it was on Lammania, but never really got that look I wanted to take. Basically, before I had zerged with a group through the Demonweb and when I got to Eveningstar, I didn’t do much. I didn’t even have the sound on, so I was quite amazed hearing the GM voice for Elminster when I went through it. Now, I have a limited experience with the Forgotten Realm setting, but somehow everything about it seemed to capture me. I can see why so many people enjoy the Forgotten Realm setting. It truly is captivating.

The next thing I did was take a look at some of the quest. Now, I don’t have MOTU so, I was limited to the new U15 pack as a VIP member, but it was still quite enjoyable aside from the poor XP, but that is neither here or there. I enjoyed it. That’s all I could really ask for out of a game. Whether it gives me good gear and XP and all that good stuff is just a side thing, but what I really want to point out here is that I enjoyed it. Very much. It was totally different from a lot of the quest I was used to and it gave me a whole new feel. I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way, but… ME TOO!

That said, I’m gonna have to get the MOTU at some point. I really would love to explore the King’s Forest. Just what I’ve heard about it sounds extremely exciting. But I’ll probably be stuck for a couple months till I can afford to pay the money for it. It’s kind of out of my budget at the moment. Makes me sad, but I’ll survive. However, the whole thing makes me want to make a Druid and really focus on it. So, I’m looking at TRing Kobay soon enough into a Druid. With this being my 3rd Monk life, it will be hard to let go of my monk, but at the same time, I don’t have much reason to do another life of him. I get to explore other classes better. I’m looking at a lot of my gear and a lot of it will transfer over easily to a Druid Life. I think I’ll go with a monk splash too. I know, with the whole AC thing, I might be better off not, but… I had the gear to support it. I wouldn’t mind the 2 extra feats including Stunning Fist and Evasion.

Now, I just need to decide if I want to focus more on Natural Fighting Feats or TWF. Such a tough one, but I think I have the gear to support either one. I actually just recently upgraded my Dreamsplitter with ForceBurst and got the Crystal Disk to add Holy on top of that. It’ll be some nice damage and with an Arti in the party, I’ll have the perfect DR breaker Boss and Trash beater. Should be fun.

Either way, I’m really looking forward to it. I may stick in the high levels for a bit though so I can run through the King’s Forest and such, once I get that. I still got a wait though. I still have 13 or so more shrouds to go till I get my cleanser for my GS gear. I need it. Got my ConOp HP goggles and just finished a SP Necklace of positive with CHA Skills. I also managed to get my hands on several other nice pieces of loot to help my Druid out.

Well, I’ll stop boring you guys with my random nonsense.

Until Next time… any advice for a Druid Life from those that have played one? and What is your favorite part of the Forgotten Realms so far?

    I love Eveningstar! The looks and music are so soothing, just love it!
    Been into Kings Forest maybe twice and it’s a really nice area to explore. The random “events” (the rare encounters) are a nice change from normal rares. And the Green Dragon in there is awesome! So whenever your budget allowes you to buy MotU i’d recommend you to buy it. Maybe you can get a guest pass to have a sneak peak inside?

    Samius has a Druid and likes it, he often posts about it here in MyDDO, maybe you can track back the info? From his words Druid’s are a nice class to play. On the forums ppl keep complaining about druids suck but he doesn’t feel that way.

    Last thing: you should totaly tweet this blog, it’s a nice read (even if you think it’s just random nonsense ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    ๐Ÿ™‚ I preordered the base back of MotU just before it went live, and I’ve yet to run more than one of the quest chains. But I have been running around King’s Forest, some Underdark and Scchindlryn. I need to do more, though, and I still need 16 more cleric commendations for the gear I’d like to get. But but… I have a bit of a different playstyle than most with this toon. My main, Thazara, she’s never tr’ing and my goal is to 1. collect all the favor I can without running challenges, but maybe some challenges as well, and to just make her as strong as she can be. She’s currently sitting on 3700+ favor and counting, and she’s not even ToD flagged yet. She’s lvl 21, holding 22. It’s actually kind of exciting having a first life toon that’s stronger than a lot of tr’s. XD The ones that beat her though are clerics with cleric pls.

    My druid’s only lvl 7, so I cannot comment on that.

    I can share my druid idea with you if you want it has turned out to be very survivable and puts out good damage. It slightly melee focused but still enough wiz to hit the spells when I want. Send me a pm if you want details.

    From what i hear, TWF feats don’t work in animal form. So, Natural Weapons if you’re planning on meleeing in animal form.

    @LrdSlvrhnd I know. ๐Ÿ˜› I was thinking of focusing on TWF in Elemental forms, and only using Animal forms seldom for certain abilities. Kind of cutting out the middle man.
