As soon as we get back from Vvardenfell, Cat Man Dhou remarked that he heard about "dragons - in this one's own homeland". Apparently he'd like something done about that.

Taminwe wants to go to Summerset, where there's unfinished business, too.

It's all Blossom's fault. tongue.gif

Well, it looks like I’ve got to respec Rescues. It seems that I accidentally gave her the same voice that drove mALX crazy on one of her characters - she makes these sounds randomly that sounds like she is clearing her throat and trying to hack up a furball. Since she has scales, not fur, it’s inappropriate for my youngest. I hate spending my last character change token, but the fact is Rescues sounds frustrated all the time, and she isn’t. At. All. She is the sweetest, most easy going character I’ve ever played, she loves going through the quests and having fun.

Oh, and 30 days in, she’s already halfway through Eastmarch . . . By the time I head back to work she should be done with Coldharbour and I may be back campaigning Stefan through his Silver . . .

Oh noes! Not the Grunting Calia syndrome that infected mALX's character! ohmy.gif

Seriously, it is too bad that during char gen you cannot get a very good feel for the voice you choose. kvright.gif

I, too, re-speced Cincinnatus, but it was for his skills. I used the skill respecification scroll I had been holding onto since I got it for free after returning from my hiatus. I took out ALL of the passives in One-Hand-And-Shield and Destruction Staff since I almost never use those skill lines and spread them out among other skill lines. I still have some skill points left over that I am not sure what I want to do with. When Greymoor comes out, I can just take all those passives again if I want because there will be a bunch of skill points up for grabs then. (I do still have a bunch of skill points I need to get from DLC group dungeons. I completed Icereach the other day with a few members of my PvP guild.)

The respecs were done in large part because of PvPing. I changed a couple morphs I had that are better suited for running with a group and picked up some new skills that I had been interested in trying anyway. A bunch of them were from the Psijic skill line: Time Stop, Accelerate, and Mend Wounds. (I already maxed-out morphs for Imbue Weapon and Meditation.) The Daggerfall Covenant is rife with Time Stop users and cast it at obnoxiously high rates.

Zenimax really needs to address some issues stemming from crowd control abilities, but that's a discussion for another time.

Urgh, poor Rescues! That horrible grunt sounded like a male pig farmer calling his hogs to the trough; and she did it with every effort = mounting her horse, jumping up on a rock, wielding her ax to mine ore, bending over, etc. It earned her the nickname "Grunting Calia" and earned her five years as a bank mule. Changing her voice was the best thing that could have happened to her! It was well worth the loss of a token imho.

Right? They cycle through the combat noises and laughs; but that grunt never shoes up in the options at all! And in the combat noises and laughter that voice choice is one of the best options = till you get her out to play and hear that awful grunt. I fell for it more than once, lol.

Oh, now that is really interesting about the Psijic line being such a good advantage in PvP! I actually did wonder how it would work against Players, but never heard anything said about it till you said that!

The good news is that the respec worked - Rescues is no longer trying to cough up hairballs as she scribbles madly in her ever-present notebook.

She finished Eastmarch in two days and moved on to the Rift yesterday. We managed to get about three quarters of the way through, and have just the Skald College, Riften, and the southeastern corner of the map left to do.

Rescues is also progressing on her research. She is now level 50 in alchemy, provisioning, blacksmithing and clothing. She is 49 in woodworking, and not too far behind in enchanting. Her Jewelry is slower, mid-20s I think, but we're in no hurry to level that. Right now Maz is the only Jewelry crafter in the bunch, and that's because we simply can not keep up with mats, especially the blue tempers.

Rescues is focused on training Baraboo's strength to give her the maximum carrying capacity, which means the lovely guar is still slow. Speed training will occur once strength is complete. Stamina is last. We over 30 days in the Strength training, so it's progressing.

I've done the exact opposite with mine, and the new kids are maximizing speed first. They did even levels up to 20, but then it was speed only. Clark is at 59, and Leveque at 47. All the others have them completed.

My logic was that they can both summon a banker and a merchant when they fill their inventories (not doing PvP) so capacity has an alternative strategy, but speed doesn't. The Stamina at 20 means they can ride past most things without interruption, especially as the speed increases, and it takes less time.

In the same vein, nobody has a bag increase beyond the free one from level-ups. I think there's a free lesson in each riding skill from those, too.

After they hit 60, it will be capacity before stamina, as it does reduce the frequency of summons for the assistants.

Jerric visited Famula’s Wonders in Kvatch this evening. He was deeply disappointed. It’s a chironasium. Not the kind of wonders he was hoping for.

Laurie was called upon to tank the WB's of Deshaan for Julian of Anvil, and Aravi. I'm not sure how many of them had other players tagging along, as she was rather too busy to look around, especially during the fight with Bittergreen the Wild. He actually had the audacity to hit her harder than she was regenerating, and we had to use a couple of potions.

I didn't notice what level Aravi had reached, but it's decently into CP territory, if short of the magic CP160. Doing decent amounts of damage, too, or we'd have been there for ever. It would take Laurie at least 15 minutes of grind to kill the guar at 2k per second, even if there's no healing. And she already knows that Sharpfang is a stalemate, as he regenerates faster than that. With the three of us, he went down very nicely.
