The sagas begin

Well, actually, the sagas are already underway, but when you have the chance to make a play on a Weird Al title, you should take it. Right? Right!

I’m really not fond of Lines of Supply unless I’m on a toon with semi-decent crowd control. That leaves out most of my melees. Luckily for monk Acanthia, who’s been working on her sagas of late, Mock was around Sunday night with a very handy Wail of the Banshee and a righteous wicked dancy ball!

All that lovely CC let us complete all the optionals, despite wave after wave after wave of resolute supply carriers and their rather more aggressive guards – and that was even without the aid of net traps, because by the time we were done convincing the harpies to help us out, there wasn’t time to go visit the trap guy. Hope he didn’t miss us too much!

That had to be one of the best, easiest, most fun completions of that quest I’ve ever gotten. Even the cheetah-speed gnolls didn’t stand a chance.

Our all-optionals run of Tracker’s Trap went just as well, although the loot gods seemed to think Acanthia wanted heavy maces – besides some lootgen ones, she pulled TWO Magistrate’s Scepters. Sadly, neither Mock nor I have any toons who use heavy maces, so the named ones got vendored and the rest went to Even for deconning. My essence stack is back up around 15K… which will last me maybe five minutes the next time there’s a crafting bonus weekend. LOL

And then we called it a night. Normally I’d go for another hour, but I was pretty darn exhausted after a busy weekend. I’m also two days behind my usual blog timeframe – silly real life!

Laegonn has some serious headway on his epic Eveningstar sagas. Sere’s got a completed epic Gianthold, and most of my other epic toons have some good progress. I’m really hoping to get the Flower Sniffers to level 150 with the next renown weekend!

Tuna ran Coal Chamber to complete flagging for the Shroud. Solo elite at level 18 – I was really rather proud of her; she’s pretty undergeared (level 7 armor, anyone?) She’s also now banking 19. Gotta get her to 20 so she can run with the epic toons in the guild! I think Keava’s the only one who has a toon around Tuna’s level right now.

AND, last but NOT least… after six years of paying $30 every three months for my VIP, I’ve just ponied up for a one-year subscription! YAY! πŸ˜€

My sub ran out on May 3, and I was going to let it slide until I get back from vacation week after next since I most likely won’t be playing DDO while I’m away anyway. But logged in tonight planning on running Coal on Tuna, and… I don’t own Vale. Checked the shared bank to see if I had an XP pot – oh, I can only access the first 25 items (which should be changed; they’re all my items. I should be able to withdraw ANYTHING in there, just not put anything new in). Didn’t have access to Acanthia ’cause I’ve never bought monk; Laegonn or Chalei ’cause I don’t have half-elf; Zak ’cause I don’t have warlock. Yeah, that wasn’t going to work, even if it was only for a week. So now it’ll be a whole year before I have to think about that again!

Streamin’ with Even is live every Sunday night at 11 pm Eastern time on the official DDOstream! The show is also hosted on my own Twitch channel, 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/often/sometimes 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! πŸ™‚

    Woah, Tuna ran Coal Chamber…..and you didn’t get lost. Something is very wrong there I think. Congrats. At least my warlock can now count on Tuna guiding her through Coal, right? πŸ™‚

    I’m disappointed, once upon a time you knew Coal like it was the Pit!

    Also, I was under the impression that you could remove items from the shared bank at-will even when you lost it; disappointing that that’s not the case. You might want to send in a bug report or something about it, because that doesn’t seem WAI.

    1. I brought this up once before, can’t remember what the response was. But basically if you’re VIP and go back to premium, you can only see the first 25 items in your shared bank. Which sucks, because I’ve bought enough slots to have more than that available regardless of VIP status. And no search bar, either.

    Which is extra-stupid because purchasing the Shared Bank (or being VIP) gets you the first 25 (I think) and then the rest are bought. So you can access the ones you most-theoretically shouldn’t be able to, but not the ones you’ve bought and paid for.
