dunno how new management is but devs had terrible history of fixing/balancing trees

never felt like they favored p2p over f2p when it comes to non-expansion stuff tbh
just generic 'new must be strong' vibe, checked out for added classes, races, etc. I guess iconic were exception when they got introduced.

Still down, let's see how long this takes.
Today's versioning fix for Shadow Blades being stuck in some banks introduced a new bug that affected anyone who tried to remove something from their Reincarnation Cache when they first logged in. This caused two problems: Some items would seemly disappear. These items are actually still with you but are stuck in "old bank space".
"old bank space", I don't even...

About Pale Masters, any way to go from medium to heavy armor and still maintain 0% spell chance failure and 20 levels in Wiz for the Pale Master capstone?

There is only 15% enhancement. Get mithral, perhaps canith crafting/gem slot might improve it a bit? MIthral will make it medium though

if nothing has changed since I played, alchemists are great once you get your SLAs, especially the multiflask ones or w/e
you even get an in-combat invis that doesn't break on doing damage and is cheap

easily the strongest class I played

early levels are pain.

With all casters except warlock are.

But if you have money, buy scrolls and wands. It can save your life in low levels as any caster.

BTW, if you wanna cast in armor, I suggest an divine caster or going Wizard -> Pale Master / Eldrtich Knight. You will gonna suffer a bit till you get negative energy burst(4th tier spell) and only become good with necrotic ray(11th level) but PM/EK are in DPS almost as good as sorcerers and have medium armor, large shield, dual powerful death auras which heals undead and damages nearby enemies, OHK spells and high saves, most spells target FORT save instead of reflex(no evasion/improved evasion), can also reanimate dead party members and so on. The unique drawback is the spells which gives negative immunity and breaking them is not easy as it is with elemental immunity. At lv 11, naked I can get over 1.2k damage when my necrotic ray crits.

alchemist is slightly different, it's even listed under "specialists" with rogues and such. it's perfectly viable as ranged attacker. bonus ranged feats, strong damage imbue to pair with law on your side, good unique self buffs, int to attack and damage.

I've actually been quite enjoying this game. This is my second go at it over the recent years (never played at launch). Despite showing its age in various areas, the dungeons actually feel like adventures, and no other game I've played has such character customization. If an MMORPG developer were to have made this game's character building and dungeon style in some sort of open world, it would have been the perfect MMORPG for me. Been working myself up to trying to find a guild soon as well. It's been a long while since I enjoyed an MMORPG enough to play with others.

So for the Night Revels, they added a Mabar themed Horse that you can farm for. It is actually worth farming this, as it gives a 100% bonus to movement speed in public areas versus the 80% bonus the Keep on the Borderland mounts have. I recommend everyone farm this before the event ends.

This is my first real event in DDO and I’ve been pretty impressed. The new mount and various other cosmetics are nice.

I’ve just been questing normally and the night revel keys have been dropping consistently.

The only annoying revels dungeon to do is the dragon scale one; it takes a decent chunk of time to do and is more technical. Still fun though.

It seems fairly easy to gather the ingredients needed for anything you might want, including the new mount.

Any good large shield and medium armor for an pale master / eldritch knight following the magus of the eclipse path, using negative as main element and cold as secondary?

I'm using SHADOWMAIL + Wall of wood since early 20s and am almost lv 30.

don't have proper caster equip so just went 41 inquisitive 31 chemist 8 harper for trance. poison multivial as opener. many immune, but it's aimed at fort save so easier to pass on those who not. especially nice in late heroics where there are hordes of fat humans and other humanoids.
nice selfbuffs for combat too.

I used alchemist to heal old baba's hut more than a few times but you have to be mindful of the arc on your healing potions.
You've done legendary raids? How is it? Once I get my solo alt to max level I'm going to try joining some public groups.
been a while but it was pretty easy if you have people leading that know what to do

found the mechanics of the ones I did fairly forgiving for new players with very few "touch the red spot and die" sort of mechanics popular in other MMOs.

I hate those touch the red spot and you die mechanics, I believe if you have enough hp/saves you should be able to resist anything.
