Our DDO Resolutions


How Did We Do From Last Year?

  • Pineleaf- Start a ranger and reach at least level 20
  • Sahba- (I normally do not make resolutions so ) To Get Drac To Lvl 30 from 15
  • Mythery- (Normally does not make resolutions) Get a few more lives on my Epic Completionist
  • Lessah- To get the shard and seal of the Full Plate of the Ring Leader and wear it!
  • Drac- Get my Rogue to Lvl 28 (I”m setting the bar low) Run Haunted Halls (So many fond memories of pen and paper) and run some raids. Play more on Argo (with those that won’t come over to Canninath to play with me) lol


This Year Resolutions

Pineleaf- Monk to Lvl 20, Something Ravenloft Maybe (depending on timing of release etc.)

Sahba – Epic completionist with Sahba

Mythery – Get a few more lives on my Epic Completionist

Lessah – I am going to upgrade full plate of the ring leader if it’s the last freaking thing i ever do in my whole life…ok, let’s be realistic…in the next five years I’ll get it done.

Drac – Almost like last year, get ANY character I have to 28, to run Haunted Halls!, Play my WolfLock more on Argo!
