DDO Players Poll – What Did You Choose For Your 10th Anniversary Reward?


I am shocked at people’s’ choices. Seven fingered gloves?



I did take that on a couple characters. Keep in mind I cycled through ~70 chars overall. Lot of lowbies took the quiver. My high levels took the Comms. Mules took the cloak.

Started Curse Of Strhad Storyline

LVL 1’s We started with Death House.

  • Ranger had a hard time making fire (barely able to create fire)
  • Soon after, The we found out the Sorc of the group is a Pyro. He (as a cantrip) can create fire, so he spent the rest of our play session, lighting fires and showing the ranger how it is.
  • First Encounter was against an Demon Dog, I had the Sorc down to 0 HP and the Ranger down to 0 as well. (They survived)

*I saw how they were going to play one section out, so I changed the story on the fly*

  • I had 4 of 6 party members insane and rocking back and forth in the corner of a room after what they saw. (They are failed a saving throw) The Cleric (Stupid Cleric’s) got lucky with his roll, and made it. Made him roll to “snap” the other out of it. We ended there.

Sounds like you had some problems on the end fight, and in case anyone hasn’t yet told you the secret i’ll tell you.

The pit fiend isn’t really anything special compared to other pit fiends. I think he can use the chain attack that Sulu uses, but otherwise he is a normal pit fiend.

the floor however is quite deadly. If you look around you will see that the exterior ring of the circle (outside the posts) are divided into a series of platforms (they are really only 1 or 2 steps high). When anyone, including someone who is dead, stands on a platform a portal forms on top of the platform. After a few seconds the portal explodes doing a large amount of force(?) damage and applying a healing curse (curse that blocks healing like some devils and clay golems do). the platform is then safe until someone steps on it again (or if someone didn’t leave)

the trick is to first pick a direction of travel. then the group needs to rally to the same platform. Positioning should be closer to the next platform (whichever direction that may be). When a portal opens underneath the entire party goes to the same point on the next platform. rinse and repeat. remember to stop on the next non portal platform most of the way to the next platform you will travel too.

this end fight can be very hard to coordinate. Some parties only send 1 person down, typically someone who can just kite and blade barrier or a warlock or a ranged person. If any one person is out of sync it can cause problems for the folks doing it the right way.

  1. saekee /

    I was surprised over the gloves because its attributes can be easily found on lootgen now

  2. the cleric from the party /

    Drac, your hatred of the cleric is always amusing! I did notice that your pregen characters for that adventure had no clerics….
