I found DDO when a search to learn about Dungeons and Dragons returned the Turbine product as the top result. I started the download, which took three days. Well worth the wait, I fell in love with the game while still in Korthos. I started playing DDO in December 2010 and had never played an MMORPG. Attempting to mimic Drizzt, I played a multi-classed drow ranger. I was terrible. But I learned, and I got better.
I liked the idea of TR’ing. The level cap was 20, and I struggled through the epic content until I had collected my twenty Tokens of the Twelve and headed immediately to the hobgoblin in House J. Every life it has been the same. I think I will grind the epic content, but as soon as I have my 20 tokens, I HAVE to TR.
My second incarnation was as an elf Favored Soul. In retrospect, I wish I had waited to play that life, but it solidified my play style. I love swinging twin scimitars while displaced. I toy around with the possibility of doing this with Eldritch Knight, but that’s still a few lives from now.
