I’ve been mabaring it for a few h tues-thurs, then did a marathon (9 h) Friday and Sunday, while Saturday was my first night off from ddo in a long time. Yes, I actually went out on a Saturday, can u imagine. *giggle*
So far I’ve run mabar on Jarvanna (druid 8), Cerge (sorc 18) and Maidae (monk 20). And Andy, or Neguash convinced me to make a mabarbot, a vet 2 human 1wiz/6cleric: 18 cha, 16 wis and I put the rest in con, so 16 con. Empower heal, Empower, Maximize, Quicken and improved turning. Bot’s an undead killing machine, bursts take out pretty much any undead in range… until I run out of bursts, that is.
During the Friday marathon I mostly ran the bot (who I named Andybot Slayer of undead, lol), but I wasn’t making too many motes. I also was having troubles getting keys, and we kept getting too low level spawns. I’ve been constantly trying to figure out how to make more motes. Friday was sort of a bust, I made maybe 6 scales, but only about 3k motes in my hours on. Sunday I was running on my sorc and kept getting loads of fangs (had 25 when I finally quit), but only one scale and only around 4k motes.
I just don’t know how people do it, the ones who claim to be making 1.6k/h or even 100k/day. I ran both with 6 man group and 12 man raid party. Drops seemed a bit random, sometimes we got loads of spawns and good drops, other times drops were pretty crap. Also spawns seemed to differ between instances, in one instance we’d get too low level spawns, change to other instance and we got right lvl again and more spawns.
I did buy 2x draught of night on Sunday, and not only did it seem to get me some motes, but I seemed to be getting more drops as well. Today I plan to run Andybot in a group of 6 and use a draught of night for more motes. I’m also gonna ask Andy if he still needs that lich dust he was begging me for, I realized I only need 1 and I have 2, so I could trade him for motes. I need 8.25k motes and 1 dragonscale more to make the items I still wish to make.
Maidae: cloak 4, 8, 16. Wraps: 4, 8, 16.
Cerge: cloak: 4, 16.
Hopefully items in the end:
Maidae: cloak 4, 12, 16. Wraps: 4, 8, 16, 20.
Cerge: cloak 4, 12, 16.
That’s all folks, and if u want to grind Mabar with me mon-tues, see you on Orien. 🙂
P.S. Mabar is to end on Tuesday, to be back around thanksgiving. Mabar Schedule
