My ddo time has been quite low since my move, and I haven’t been too inspired to do a whole lot. Me and sis usually play together once a week on the toons we have for that purpose (Jarvanna and Schoan), but it’s been several weeks since we played and I of course haven’t played Jarvanna since then. This week we decided to run, and I suggested we do Ataraxia and Hips (Hiding in Plain Sight) with my piker alt in the party, and then we did one Sands walkup before it was too late.
Here’s the gang:

On October 29th we packed all my stuff + the degus in a moving car and I said goodbye to Finland. October 30th we got to my new place and the next 3.5 days I spent on buying Ikea furniture, assembling Ikea furniture (that’s the typical for Ikea, everything is in parts), unpacking and sorting. November 3 I started my new job and right away had less time for unpacking and sorting. Today I finally had all my things unpacked and put somewhere. I still need to take the cardboard to the recyling place… then I’m mostly done. I might put up a poster or two.
It has been stressful. Long work days, lots to do at home… ddo hasn’t been a priority. As soon as I got my computer table sorted and my computer, screen, mouse and keyboard unpacked I started playing ddo again, but with so much to do around the home, my inspiration has been rather low, and I’ve mostly been doing mod and some favor runs… and some xp on Firetha (working on her EDs). But apparently I did run Thaz some this month as well.
Here are some screenies I found of Thaz runs.
Thaz did ee Wheloon, here in A lesson in desception.
If you read my Maidae TR4 blog, you may remember that I said that Maidae’s hair was supposed to be dark purple, but that I thought it looked just brown. With the discount to hair dyes, I decided to get her a more noticeable purple color (was 75 TP). What do you think?
And as a side note, if you missed it, I moved from Finland to Sweden last week, and I just started a new job on Monday. I’ve been buying and assembling furniture for the new apartment, and I’m not even fully unpacked yet. Still lots to do. Because of the move I haven’t had a whole lot of time to play ddo or blog. I will get more active again once I get everything sorted.
That’s all from me for now. Thank you for stopping by and take care.
After several days, I finally got my stuff packed. 27 large boxes, 7 small + all the stuff that doesn’t fit in a box. I’m bringing my bed, computer table + chair, laundry machine, flower table, TV + table, dvd shelves × 4 and degu cages. I really hope we can fit everything in the truck.
Each time there is a new update with a new raid, I tend to wait for ppl to learn it, and then join someone with knowledge so they can teach me. I then try to join different groups to see what different tactics the different groups use… I usually select my own tactics based on what I’ve learned for when I post the raid myself. When it comes to The Mark of Death, I haven’t needed to post for the raid at all, in fact my toons keep getting ransacked, and I don’t have a toon to run that isn’t, lol. Most of the runs I’ve done I’ve done with Adenai, I did some with Cleazy and some with Matrix. Key has been doing MoD marathons a few times a week, and I’ve enjoyed them them most. The runs have been somewhat efficiently run, even though almost pure pug runs, but still quite relaxed. Conversations have been light and friendly. :)
So, I looked for some screenies from the runs, just for some documentation on the groups.
I participated in the Mabar event for the first time October-November 2012. At first the event didn’t interest me a whole lot, but then I got really into it and spent a lot of time there (search for mabar on my blog to see the posts I wrote about it). I was doing some runs with my friend Andy (the nickname I gave him), and he told me to make a vet 2 1 wizard/ 6 cleric mabarbot to use to farm motes. He ended up nagging so much, that I gave in lol. As payback I named the toon Andybot (see my post about it here). I really wasn’t a big fan of Andybot. I think I only ran him until the dragon chamber opened, and for one opening. Then I switched to Maidae, who I believe was a lvl 20 monk at the time. I learned that running a higher level toon would give you more motes than a lower level one, as for the higher level toons you’d get more bones (which give you the most motes), while the lower level toons get more opals (the least amount of motes).
Anywho, now, 2 years later, I’ve never played this toon, and I’ve kept him as a bank toon. I’ve never done favor runs on him or anything, so I decided to turn a couple of iconics into bank toons, and delete Andybot and Mosylicious, who was another never played vet 2.
I was complaining on twitter about being out of TP and unable to buy cosmetic armor for Cerge. Rest suggested the mirror to me, and looking at the cost, I decided to try it out. Here’s the result. What do you think?
You can compare this look with his previous looks here and here. I’m unsure if I like his brown hair, though.
I really wanted to buy a wraith from the store… but turns out they didn’t have one right now. The cranium rat bundle was not that expensive, so I decided to get that one instead. I named the purple one FatHamster (I call one of my degus ‘chubby hamster’, cause she’s so round and soft), the black one BlackBeauty (after Anna Sewell’s novel) and the gray one ZombieRat (just Zombie wasn’t allowed). And then I decided to make some gifs… Click on the images below to view animation.
