The last couple of weeks have been Reincarnation Time here at DDOGamer, as we convert all of our grizzled level 28 characters into shiny new level 20 Epic TRs – or even shinier, even newer, level 1 Heroics!

It’s a side effect of the upcoming level cap increase. As soon as Update 29 hits, it is going to take another 1.65 million experience to become eligible for TR. 1.65 million. Here, I’ll spell that out:


Not a horrible amount, not at all, but I have a lot of characters at cap. 1.65 million times eight characters is over thirteen million XP. And that is a lot.

So instead, I am having a wooden heart festival, reincarnating anyone who remotely might want to be reincarnated someday, whether it had been my plan previously or not.

An New Life Jamboree. Reincarpalooza.

All of this reincarnating has its own unexpected side effect: a series of armor fashion shows. It seems that I have developed a habit of looking at each piece of armor I loot before I sell it; you never know when one will be worth keeping or glamoring. Not often, the vast majority of randomly-generated armor is hideous. No, that is not accurate, I need a word worse than “hideous”: off to the thesaurus!

abhorrent, abominable, appalling, awful, disgusting, distasteful, dreadful, evil, foul, fulsome, gross, hideous, horrendous, horrible, horrid, loathsome, nasty, nauseating, nauseous, noisome, noxious, obnoxious, obscene, odious, rancid, repellent, repugnant, repulsive, revolting, scandalous, shocking, sickening, ugly

Yes. All of those. I am comfortable saying that the vast majority of randomly-generated armor looks like all of those bad words, wrapped together in a particularly awful burrito of badness.

But I digress. This is not about all of the accurate yet unpleasant ways that I can describe random armor. I was explaining how many of my characters have accumulated a pile of varying random armors, waiting for me to have the attention to look at them before unloading them on the armor broker.

And so, a series of fashion shows as I inspect each piece on each character before TR.

Like this one.
