Don’t fear the (giant) reaper

Another one of my gimpier toons introduced himself to Twitch and livestreaming Sunday night as Zak the super-squishy pale master rounded up some friends and headed to Gianthold for some reaper mode fun.

I think having five Flower Sniffers for the stream, including Comic Relief in his “Streamin’ with Even” debut, was also a first! And DDO blogger Luedwig Bait’Hoven joined us for the first time as well. Even Citi managed to make it on!

Two-skull Prison of the Planes turned out to be a bit beyond our reach, although Zak surprised me by being the last one left standing (mostly because he spent a lot of time RUNNING AWAY, which is a perfectly valid playstyle when you’re as gimpy as he is). One skull, though, turned out to be just about right – oh, we still died, and not infrequently. But compared to our two-skull effort, piece of cake!

Finally getting to be on the livestream was Zak’s reward for finally getting to level 30 the previous night. Now I need to get Laegonn, who is proof positive that not all warlocks are overpowered, or even powered at all, to 30 as well, because they’re going to swap – Zak’s going to TR to a ‘lock, and Laegonn will be reborn as a pale master in training.

I’m also considering TRing Jall. She’s pretty solid up to about EH, but she really needs some better gear to be viable above that. Plus, healbots are coming back into style thanks to reaper mode, and that’s always been her primary focus (although she did surprisingly well in the killcount running EE Demonweb for sagas tonight).

The prospect of trying to level up three newly-TR’d toons is a little daunting, especially since Char’s only gotten to level 11 since her TR and Meren’s still stuck at 6. But I think, in the long run, it’ll be worth it for all three of them. And I expect Jall in particular should have a pretty easy time racking up reaper XP as she levels up.

Got some cosmetic work done on OurDDO, still have a bit to do… mostly just need to redo a couple of things in Photoshop so the header isn’t encroaching on the slider. I’m trying to match, sorta, the general look of this blog.

Also still looking for feedback on the possibility of having some minimal ad space available at even more minimal cost to DDO blogs and fansites. So if you have any thoughts on that, please let me know in the comments, or send an e-mail to evennote (at) gmail (dot) com!

Streamin’ with Even is live every Sunday night at 11 pm Eastern time, now on the official DDOstream! The show will still be hosted on my own Twitch channel as well, but if you’re watching live and want to chat, DDOStream is the place to be. Videos are archived on my YouTube channel and/or on DDOStream’s YouTube. I’m usually on Thelanis, usually on Evennote, and usually have room, so feel free to send me a tell if you’d like to join! I’m also definitely open to suggestions on what to run next. You can send ingame mail to Evennote on Thelanis, or email me at evennote (at) gmail dot com. Thanks for reading and/or watching!  🙂

  1. Correction – Comic Relief (that would be me) was on one or two other “Streamin’ with Even” shows. I don’t specifically remember which, though I think one was when you were farming for Jack’s blade. Still, a rarity, though. Sunday nights are not always the best times for me, but we’ll see about dropping in a bit more frequently.

    Additional correction: EE Shindy g Drow were imploding all over the place! Or, er. Imploding nowhere at all? I mean, they were imploding a lot, but they weren’t going all over the place ’cause that’d be EXploding. Er. Yeah. I’m gonna shut up now.
