    rogues get UMD which is insanely good and lessens the "self heals"/"spell utility" part
    I was a semi-decent healer using scrolls when my character was a rogue.

    teleport scrolls, heals, resurrect, probably other stuff I can't remember

    yeah i know, part of the reason i wonder whether to go gnome or drow.
    Problem is im not sure how much money id have for scrolls. Back in my days I have all the quick bars with wand and scrolls.
    Main reason I want mechanist are magical traps. Not sure how many parts I will have, how often id be able to place insane web trap

    If you're playing on the hardcore server, avoid drow, the CON hit isn't worth it.
    Been a while since I looked at the racial trees, but I'd probably go through them looking for something that ups survivability. Also, I wouldn't go melee if you're on HC, you'll go squish.

    its just 1hp per lvl difference. Nothing to be stressed about on heroic levels. True, so does toughness, but I wouldnt stress too much over it

    So unless you have it store bought you would have to get 400 favor on the hc server first to play a drow.

    In the end it's not your choice of race that's going to kill you but the servers. :dealwithit:

    whats the deal with iconic races? Looks like I have extra coin, if I buy scroundel tiefling one, am I 32 points lvl1 bard in hardcore, able to start quests at any diff level?

    tieflings appear to be quite ugly though, seem like ugly high brow succubi lover fetish

    Again almost 30 and again i'm in awe how dumb is t5 gating.

    [​IMG]

    Still need to burn 4 points on ABSOLUTELY useless shit to reach t5. Literally zero benefits. 3 luck bonus to saves and skills? I already have luck bonus from equip. Watchful eye to autosearch for traps? I have autosearch from inquisitive core. +30/60/100 sp? I have 1000+ sp, enough to fully explore barovia wilderness without rests and not even burning half of it on buffs. Throwing weapons speed? Magic school dc? DUMB!

    oh, btw half of the shit is not even working... from new patch notes -

    • Enemy of My Own now properly grants Favored Enemy: Fey.
    • Pierce Deception now properly grants Doubleshot when you have the Watchful Eye feat.
    • Fey Form now properly grants DR 10.

    ddo was always riddled with bugs. Expectation was that sooner they would revamp your tree and remove problematic feature than fix it

    when epic destinies got introduced, most of them were garbage. Bugged and/or useless.
    Most melees were running barbarian one as other options simply sucked. My rogue was one too for example.

    Except for some weird raids. I recall respeccing into druid destiny on my rogue and equipping a scroll. There used to be(wonder if they fixed it) bug where with scroll equipped and running forward, you would punch real quick.
    So on not highest epic difficulty raid, the one in gianthold with stormgiant and dragons, my rogue would enter as a tank lol. Id pop into tree form, grab aggro of one of the bosses and beat him solo - while syncing with rest of the party to make sure it goes down in proper time range

    They actually just redid all the epic destinies in this latest update. So everything is completely new again and everyone is trying to figure out what the best combination is. Was at max level when they did the switch, so it will be interesting seeing what leveling is like when I reincarnate and hit epics again.

    Can't remember if I showed you this yet, but they have a free quests coupon code here https://www.ddo.com/en/ThankYou. And first three expansions are available for just 99points each as well.

    Basically only through checking whether you have acess to the content ingame or not manually.
