I decided to reroll my DDO monk as a halfling female. Part of that was driven by aesthetics – the male character model didn’t look as good. The other part was driven by the name – I used one from a book and felt the name suited a rogue better. Now I have Naerys, a female halfing monk, and Cargus the male rogue who probably won’t see much action at all.
This avatar just looks more like a monk than my previous male halfling, although a lot of that might have to do with the hairstyle. 😉 I did it now when I’m not very far along, rather than wait and have to spend more time getting back to where I was. I could probably spend some cash in the DDO store to change appearance, but rerolling was just as easy – it only took me 45 minutes (or less) to go from character creation to finish up the first set of Korthos Village quests.
I picked halfling again, due to the dexterity bonus. I’m generally not a serious number cruncher, like the folks who play WoW and hang out on Elitist Jerks, but for something so easy as picking a particular race for a nice bonus for the class I want to play? Count me in!
After a break for dinner, I forged ahead and finished off the rest of Korthos Island, except the final dungeon, Misery’s Peak. I’ll save that for another time.
Meanwhile, regular dungeon exploration led to:
- Rescuing the mayor’s daughter, and freeing captives (Sacrifices)
- Finding a lost man and recruiting his help (Redemption)
- Rescuing a kidnapped woman (Necromancer’s Doom)
- Sealing up an ancient machine (Stopping the Sahaugin)
Let’s face it, I’m single handedly saving the village! 🙂
I also completed an explorer quest, finding various landmarks, such as this Devourer Shrine.
I also managed to level up to 2 rank 7, and after taking a new feat, Two Weapon Fighting, I logged off inside the tavern, satisfied with the day’s adventures.
