As the self-proclaimed unofficial spokesperson for Death Counter, it was not amused with the lack of deaths last night. 🤣”Try harder” is what I heard.

Was a ton of fun, it’s been literally a decade since I last played this game in any serious manner and with a group/guild. I do like how I don’t have to micro manage spell points. Pfft, who needs spell points when you got a Great [big] Axe and can point at mobs and say “Let me Axe you a question!” 😋[I’ll see myself out]

I am not sure how I feel about our “tank” being a spokesperson for the Death Counter. Hmm.

I forgot we don’t have a sword and board character in the group. 😁

Do the 2 deaths of the crystal we were trying to protect count?

And these were basically just tutorial quests, I’m sure that even with 2 healers in the party the Death Counter will get plenty of exercise once we make it to the mainland ;)

While i don’t find DDO bad by any means, the “pay by quests” monetization really puts me off.

Reader

I actually prefer paying for content compared to games that sell things I don’t really want to buy. Also, from what I recall, there are enough free quests in the first areas of DDO to get you far enough to decide if it is a game you would want to pay into. We should be able to tell how that is looking these days as MJ’s group progresses, since I’m guessing we would not be buying content just yet.

Never played DDO, and judging from that bit of stream I watched, it doesn’t look like I’d want to. I think I’d rather find a group to play tabletop version online via streaming with…too bad I was having such troubles with that.

Just loaded up SWTOR instead and have been blasting through that multiple times…(Hit lvl 50 5 times already…but not really seeing a reason to actually PLAY since the story seems not good…and not sure what the point in continuing even is after you hit 50…)

It’s a game you need a couple of reliable friends playing at the same time as you to enjoy it. Playing with random strangers is harder, because you will constantly have to search for a party. I’ve tried it a couple of times, it’s impossible to play alone.

Also the gameplay is something tabletop D&D players can enjoy, again with a group of their friends. It’s not an MMORPG for anyone.

You can play alone with the right class and build (especially one that has self-healing), but it does get very slow and grindy and isn’t anywhere near as much fun.

I think that was the Templar(Paladin?), but I picked the wrong points and I realized I don’t have enough Charizma to learn Heal… which was impossible from this point on on that character as those were my basic stats…

I don’t know, the game isn’t bad, but I still think it’s made for party playing so you can have fun. What’s the use in playing alone?

I’d say better not play at all unless you REALLY REALLY want to play that game.

I think that was the Templar(Paladin?)

There are lots of different builds which can work solo if you know the system well enough, especially with multiclassing, and I’d been playing tabletop D&D for over 20 years before I first tried DDO back in 2010. I got to 20th level solo with a Ranger and to 12th level solo with a Monk before I got bored (both characters taking a level or two of Rogue to deal with traps and locks).

But I very much agree that playing solo is not something most people will enjoy.

It’s dangerous being around a Dwarf dancing with a Great Axe in his hands. 😁

Thank you to the group for a fun night. Looking forward to the rest of the starter island. I’m sure there won’t be any more giant spiders…
