DDO Players Poll – How Many Past Lives Do You Have


A couple of characters are still 1st-lifers since they’re semi-retired atm, but in general they have at least 2, with the most-reincarnated character i have currently on it’s 6th or 7th life now i think.




DDO is a 10 year old game. If someone has been playing since beta, having at least one character that is a Completionist, Triple Completionist, or even a Heroic, Epic, and Inconic Completionist isn’t that remarkable. That player would just have to have had played consistently since the game began and would be able to accumulate that many past lives without living in Mommy’s basement.




more then ten but spread over a couple of chars, my main has 4 hPL and 2ePL, used to be an altoholic so didn’t run much reincarnations the first few years I was playing the game.



One alt has 15 the other has 40 🙂



My main is on her 28th heroic past life. My 2 alts are on their 6th.




This might seem odd. But I don’t do reincarnations. I just don’t want to repeat over and over with the same character. I’ve got several of mine up to level 24, seems fine to me. So going through each of the classes that interest me with different characters. When I’m done.. I’m done. LOL. Having a blast though! Woo Woo!


From The Forums




On Cannith I have:


  • 1 5th Lifer
  • 1 4th Lifer
  • 5 3rd Lifers
  • 8 2nd Lifers
  • +1 1st Lifer with 3 E-TRs
  • 2 1st Lifers with 1 E-TR


On Sarlona I have:


  • 3 3rd Lifers
  • 4 2nd Lifers
  • +1 1st Lifer with 1 E-TR


On Khyber I have:

  • 2 2nd Lifers

So I guess that’s more than 10?



I have 3 characters.

  1. a first life bank mule
  2. an alt that has 17 or so past lives and still isn’t completionist.
  3. main character that’s got every past life x3 and then some. I’ve actually lost count, but                      probably around 97 or 98 past lives on him.

Outside Of DDO

Started to convert a surprise classic module for my party.

(If they survive this) I will weave the story of this module, to send them to the Tomb Of Horrors..

Phil Writes In


Hi ya Pineleaf and Draculetta,

I’m new to DDO and the 1st and biggest question I have is…Which world/server do I choose? I live in Wisconsin USA and I know from playing Lotro that there is a difference. Also any “Newbie” advice you can give would be appreciated.

To give you some background I played D&D growing up in the 80’s and MERPS (Middle Earth Roleplaying) in college. Which means I am familiar with pen & paper versions.

P.S. I will not be leaving Lotro it is my 1st love in MMORPG’s and it’s an awesome game.
