Will I get (yet another) Microscopic Elixer of Wasting-Room-In-Your-Backpack? Not today
One of my favorite things about TRing is that you get a free raise cake. Every brand new character does, it happens in Korthos when you talk to Merla Bauerdatter. She sends you on a “quest” (as if anything involving the DDO Store can be called a quest) to buy a bottle of Vintage Old Sully’s Grog from the DDO Store and deliver it to Bertram Sharpwood, on the docks by the boat. On completion, Bertram hands you a spanking new Starter Siberys Spirit Cake.
Just like a drug dealer on a TV miniseries, the first one is always free.
And I must admit, raise cake is pretty damn magnificent.
Don’t get me wrong, one raise cake is not worth TRing on its own. One raise cake will not last me very long. Sometimes seven raise cakes do not last me very long.
But still. Free raise cake.
Now imagine that you are already aglow with the thrill of acquiring a free raise cake when you notice that your Daily Dice roll has come due again. Automatically, you click the tiny die. You’ve learned to be careful when clicking the Silver chest and the Roll button, an error here will cost you Astral Shards. But even with appropriate caution, the clicks come quickly and reflexively.
And you win … A free raise cake!
Woo hoo! I didn’t even know that was on the list of possibilities! All I usually get is Blades of the Dark Six and Miniscule Potions of Crafting Something-Or-Other.
A free raise cake! Or technically, another free raise cake! Two in a row!
No matter what else may happen, any day that starts out with two free raise cakes is gonna be a good day.
