DDO Players News Episode 12 : No Drac RNG JuJu


I like the Stealth Repo quest! The xp is great, it’s quick & a bit of a challenge. The key is to keep the dungeon alert down by dispatching any kobolds that aren’t prophets. It’s easer to do on hard because the prophets have enough hitpoints that you don’t kill them by accident. If you do it with two people, have one kite, and one person kill. Enjoy!

BTW, thanks for making this show!



Re: Stealthy Reposession – if you know what you are doing and have access to invisibility, this can actually be a pretty fast little xp run



This quest is one of the few remaining low level ‘watermark’ quests. You can use several different tactics to actually complete the quest and when you finally realize you don’t vehemently hate the quest anymore then you’ve kind of arrived. You have enough gameplay experience under your belt to consider yourself a true ‘Harbor Master’. (Look out Mr Zin.) While I can’t say it’s one of my favorite quests, I do consider it to be quite valuable. Elite at level completion on any given class – no sweat. It’s a trophy kind of thing. Mark it off the bucket-list and tackle the next mountain.



Stealthy repossession is a quest that means you have to take a thoughtful approach, and introduces you to the concept of crowd control – a caster of some kind will probably have the easiest time in there with judicious application of hypnotism, fascinate, command, hold person & invisibility (depending what you have available).

That quest is notoriously tricky. Some tricks to try to make targeting easier:

-Hard targeting with Tab instead of trying to right click on kobolds will reduce time spent and also avoid the collateral that comes with soft targeting.

-Use Q to target inanimate objects (good for finding them too if you don’t know where they are since it works in a radius around you) and then E to interact rather than trying to left click, or if you have the item targeted in your target orb thing you can just click on its picture there to grab it. The game will prioritize left click for combat over item interaction, you can change this in the game options if you wish.

If you’re not a sneaky type the easiest way to do it is just to run through as fast as you can (which does require some knowledge of quest layout) and I usually like to take a moment to thin out their ranks when I get to stand on the ledge at the green crystal levers.

If you start to get overwhelmed you will get a dungeon alert level which is where you noted them slowing you down, so crowd control to incapacitate them or thinning out their ranks (whilst keeping up a good pace) can be another way of doing it. I might suggest even taking some of the festivult cookies out for a spin in there. Like flesh to stone or dancing sphere for example.

Invis is a lvl 2 spell. Scrolls available in marketplace and will definitely help. You’ll need a bunch to recast after you go through doors or switches. You are right about the sound, but if they can’t see you that extra bit of breathing space will be a great help.
