December 14, 2012 I wrote a blog post called Maidae’s Story. A lot has happened since then. My plan back when I first made Maidae, was to make an end game monk, so I asked on the ddo forums, “what do I need to do to make an end game monk?”. I was told that I need 3 monk past lives and maybe one barbarian. That is where I started out.
The game has since then changed, and monks have changed. A pure melee monk wasn’t as good anymore. I still stuck to my plan, I did 2 monk past lives and one barbarian before switching to iconics and TR’ing at cap. I also did some epic past lives inbetween. Someone told me I also need fighter past lives, so I added that to my plan.
I think Maidae has been my favorite character for a while. I loved her as a pure monk back when, I liked her as a barbarian. I didn’t quite like her during her first fighter life, because it was a Cetus copy, and not my own. I liked her the most during her handwraps fighter-monk life (the life where she did 6 epic past lives), and I am enjoying her a lot as a monkcher. Maidae is probably the char I’ve done the most solo videos on as well (or at least raid videos).
Here’s the list of Maidae’s reincarnations:

What does the future hold for Maidae? Currently she is working her way through solo raids, and is going to do some epic reincarnation… maybe when Cerge has reached cap and can take over as my second capped character. Since the game has changed so much, I believe I will need to do some paladin past lives as well for heal amp. She is a monk this life and will most likely be a fighter next life before doing paladin. Other than that, we’ll see.
