Finally it’s time to write Cerge’s story, like I’ve done with Thazara and Maidae. I am using the DDOViewer to check Cerge’s quest logs, as Cerge has never been run as much or been as awesome as the others, so I don’t really remember.
I had been wanting to try a nuker for a while, so after I unlocked the 32p build with favor, I made a socerer based on this guide: The Sorcerer’s Handbook: A Guide to Building and Playing Sorcerers. I decided to go warforged for self heal, and I had to adjust some stuff to fit in the savant. This guide was made before the prestige enhancements were introduced into the game, so I couldn’t follow it exactly. Still, unlike Thaz and Maidae, I did not make a build plan for Cerge.
Cerge was born February 24, 2012. I made him as a vet 1 character and then went back to Korthos to run the quests there. I went in solo on elite and failed pretty quickly, I’d never run a pure caster before and I couldn’t take the aggro. Retry I got a melee hireling and started a hard streak instead of elite. Hard with melee hireling worked very well, I just webbed everything and my hire killed stuff.
At lvl 6 I joined a group running Delera’s elite on level, and I felt rather useless, but I didn’t die. 🙂 Most of the mobs I just ran past, as I couldn’t take them out without using a lot of mana. I was fire savant, as my plan was to be fire up until lvl 16, then switch to water. Here’s a post made about farming the Bloody Crypt: My nuker, Cerge.
I apparently ran necro 2 on Cerge as mentioned in these two posts: Need to post… 🙂, Gaming this weekend and at lvl 10 I decided to get Cerge xp stoned, after hearing about ninja stoning. I did not want Maidae to get stoned, so I figured I might as well jump Cerge to 16, as I have many lives planned for him. Here’s the post about that: Meet the new Cerge.
After taking 16, I decided to test him out in VON4 elite, which turned to be a lot harder than expected. (See Recently 16 and VON4 and Recently 16 and VON4 pt 2). Third time was the charm, but only after I got Andy to help me out. 😛 (Gaming Saturday).
I decided to run Necro 4, and Cerge did actually really well in there. This post was before U14: Cerge rocks 🙂 and this one after: Spells and damage. I tried to run Web of Chaos elite on level with a pug, ran the first quest twice, then failed badly more than once in Servants of the overlord (Huge diff between elite and hard).
At lvl 17 I wanted to duo all the Vale quests on hard with my irl ddo friend. We failed badly after 2.5h in Let the sleeping dust lie, and I was very disappointed (Breaking up with my sorc). I got a lot of help from Dea after that one, and the next try went really well (Happy happy Cerge). 🙂 I also wrote about the 3 last flagging quests here: Ritual Sacrifice completed, Running with the devils completed, The Coalescence Chamber completed. And here’s Cerge’s first shroud, hard at lvl 18: First shroud, 2 tomes!.
Took me a long while to get Cerge to 20. Cleazy helped me flag Cerge for ADQ, and I ran 2 heroic ADQs at lvl 18, and was running Shroud. My plan was and is still to do 20 shrouds, and ADQ for torc before TR. Cleazy suggested I start running eADQ instead of heroic, so I decided to do so and leveled Cerge to 20. Before 20 I flagged him for Dreaming Dark and at 20 I farmed it for a pale lavender, vibrant purple, and unsuppressed the mindsunder docent. I started running eADQ at lvl 20, and also joined Cleazy in eVON. As a first life sorcerer without any special gear, Cerge’s having some troubles with spell penn. He uses a lot of mana to take mobs out, and can seldom insta kill stuff, unless I use all the metas I have to boost the spells. Boosted spells cost a lot, though, so I try to mostly use the savant spells.
Currently Cerge is lvl 22 and is half his way to 20 shrouds and 20 ADQ’s. Next life I will make him into a trap monkey archmage wizard. This because I know it can be done and I’d like to try trapping without actually being trapper. 🙂 And a wizard with evasion’s not bad either. Check out my raid posts for more about Cerge.
Ty for reading and happy holidays.
