Re: CHARACTER BUILDER (VERY useful!)
Everything has been put together here and organized for maximum ease of use:

http://www.mediafire.com/?44xdbd8bl89dbkg

Step 0: Download the above, unrar it.
Step 1: Run the program in the Step 1 folder, this will download the character builder.
Step 2: Run the program in the Step 2 folder, this will update your Cbuilder. Make sure to specify the directory to which you installed the program in Step 1. Be absolutely sure of this, because it may try to install in a different directory (Program Files as opposed to Program Files x86 or vice versa), which will not work.
Step 3: Move the files in the Step 3 folder into the CBuilder directory.
Step 4: Run the "CharacterBuilderLoader.exe" file. It will take some time to download all the custom content the first (and perhaps second) time you load it.
Step 5: That should be it. Remember, always open it using the CharacterBuilderLoader.exe and not the default Cbuilder file.

Well, I know those things, but in terms of the comic itself, it makes no sense. Why is the fat hamster attire wearing person holding the book (which I assume is the irc chat or whatever is used)?

It wasn't that, it's just that you were going to follow Torinn, but the hydra moved as soon as Torinn finished his move so you didn't have time to follow. On the bright side you do have the first round in initiative so it should work out okay.

Ah, I thought I would have just been sort of semi following behind him up until the point where we're in combat now (or at least a couple squares more behind). Just thought I'd ask (partially because even with a movement technique, I'm too far away to attack it.)

>> No. 7120 edit
So, for future reference, when using my crane's wings move technique, total squares moved is my check result divided by 5 (rounded down)? So if I roll 15 (1+14), i'd move 3 squares, etc? I'll wait to see if bern/anon roll some sort of nature check (with an idea of powers) before officially starting my turn.

Also, if you did, my Open the Gate of Battle attack loses 2d10 damage I think. Anyway, once one of the party members relates the info to us about the Hydra, here's my possible plan for my turn. Move just outside of the threatening reach of the hydra, minor action item power (encounter) to shift 2 squares (and gain +1 ac and reflexes until end of next turn), then use Open the Gate of Battle (and hopefully hit.) Another final option would be Blurred STrike Ki focus' daily item power as well to gain +2 to all defenses til end of next turn but that seems kinda redundant.

Since it's a multi-attacker, I believe reducing its damage will significantly weaken its ability to threaten us. Thus, I'm strongly considering spending my item daily power and my daily power to weaken it and tack on a -5 to attack rolls for good measure, making it significantly less scary for a round. Seizing an early advantage will probably turn the tide of the fight in our favor.

I've seen what damage resistance does to someone that relies on making several attacks per turn or per round, and it's not pretty.

What say you guys?

I meant under the circumstances Astaroth was describing. Acid/fire does stop the regeneration, but destroying 2 heads in one round will just cause it to grow 4 new heads on its turn.

So do the hydra's attack AC mainly? Also, how does my turn plan look that i posted a moment ago
>> No. 7138 edit
>>7137
As a brute, it probably does. But the "reflexible" spit probably doesn't.
>> No. 7139 edit
>>7131
DR is a good idea, but those effects would probably be much more useful when the hydra can make more attacks at once. Personally, I think we should use limited resources during its more dangerous phase, so that it both ends as quickly as possible and becomes a lot less scary. Maybe when it's bloodied?

Also, I think weaken and -5 penalty should be done on separate rounds. Using both at once seems like overkill, and it just makes the round after they wear off much harder to heal through, since it'll save its action point for then.

I'm planning to use up either Lamb to the Slaughter or Vengeful Elementals here; it's probably Lamb to the Slaughter, unless it misses.
>> No. 7140 edit
>>7139
Wouldn't Lamb to the Slaughter just cause us to provoke a few attacks from it though?

I think just one head for just one round for ever 12 fire damage. It does halve damage on a miss so we should be able to do 12 fire damage with some luck, but I think it's better to just bumrush it hard when we can; either that, or lose a lotta surges.

One thing I didn't mention in the knowledge check I probably should have:
The hydra's individual attack go up in damage potential as its number of heads decreases. With only 3 heads, hydra fury adds +5 damage to attack. With only 2 heads, hydra fury instead adds +2 attack and +10 damage to each attack. With only 1 head, the hydra gets the above bonus and can attack up to three creatures within range with the attack.

Alright, I put anon's character in the character builder, and some things aren't adding up. With anon's current stat set, he still has 2 points left for a stat (I put it into dex, so he has 18 dex) and with that he gains one more AC, so 21 AC, same NADs as before.

Also, as for scale as anon wanted, it's not really that feasible unless you sacrifice two feats (one to get chainmail to have the prerequisite for scale, then one for scale). One suggestion for next level to boost his defenses somehow, is drop weapon focus for some other feat. Also, I don't know how you wield your weapons, but Harmony Blade should be mainhand (I dunno if it's a bastard sword harmony blade) and farbond should be offhand, the reason why is, see the crit effect for harmony blade, and see the property of harmony blade. It'll effectively give you +2 to all defenses(because the enemy takes a -2 to attack if trying to target you) when you hit with both weapons in the same turn (and with Twin Strike and your other powers, it's almost guaranteed).

I don't think using a daily solely for the fact it does Fire Damage is a great idea. I'm fine with just going for Winged Hordes, unless others agree that blowing Swordmage Shielding Fire just to deal Fire Damage is a good idea.

Okay so if its attack against creatures what end their turn nearby is an OA, that means Torinn should just attack and forget Righteous Radiance.

Delay your turn to find out, maybe? I plan to Dimensional Vortex it on its own turn so it can attack itself, but if I don't move it at all I can make it just attack itself with one attack (not the entire hydra fury I assume) so then I can also do it on its own turn or just stick to shielding fire... but 23 damage is one short of stopping the regen twice. Unless it has a Fire vulnerability.

I hadn't read the power, I assumed if you were suggesting it that it worked. I hope you weren't interpreting my answer as changing the power somehow.

Short rest suggestion, unless someone else wants to spend a surge to top off their HP. From just the surges,

Myn: spend 0, heal for 0+4+0=4, 47/50 HP, surges left: 5, overhealing: 0
Folka: spend 1, heal for 12+4+1=17, 48/48 HP, surges left: 4, overhealing: 6
Bernkastel: spend 0, heal for 0+4+0=4, 44/47 HP, surges left: 6, overhealing: 0
Torinn: spend 1, heal for 19+4+1=24, 50/58 HP, surges left: 6, overhealing: 0
Sureiya: spend 0, heal for 0+4+0=4, 49/55 HP, surges left: 3, overhealing: 0
Sariel: spend 0, heal for 0+4+0=4, 51/51 HP, surges left: 9, overhealing: 4

>One Healing Spirit for Folka heals Torinn for 8 HP. I have one unused from this encounter.
>One Healing Spirit for Torinn heals Sureiya for 8 HP. This one recovers at the end of the first short rest.
>If we take a second short rest so I can recover Healing spirit again, it all takes 10 minutes.

End result etc.

Bernkastel: 44/47 HP, 6 surges left

I'm fine with making the moment more poignant and all, but you need to think about what's appropriate to the situation. To be honest the alternating between normal cavern floors and worked stone is actually intended to be fitting for the idea of the dungeon I had in mind.

So I was considering retraining Grasping Shadows to Dread Presence. Damage die grows from 1d8 to 1d10, range suffers from 10 to Close, area of effect grows from burst 1 to blast 5, and it still Slows on hit. The zone does Wis mod (1) damage to creatures that end their turn there. Neither is party-friendly.

Other candidate is Twilight Falls: not party friendly, damage die is 1d6, burst 1 within 10, but it dazes creature in origin square on hit and creates a zone that gives us concealment against creatures within the zone.

Twilight Falls is obv useful for its Daze power, whereas the other two give Slow. Grasping Shadows is range 11 for single-target damage, Presence is 5. Presence can grab a LOT of enemies and its area is party friendly iirc but yeah, idk.

Clearly evil drow though it's a scheme so they can set on us later after we eradicate this Sankis fellow.

What, already? It hasn't even been four years since 4E came out and they're already trying out the next version? Dammit, WotC, haven't you learned that people don't like having the books they invested so much money in becoming worthless? It's not so much the edition changes as it is a matter of relearning everything and having to pay even more money for something that's not even compatible with their old stuff. It's like going from a Windows 95 to a Windows 7; the transition is jarring and none of the old stuff works with the new stuff.

In other words, they should have waited longer.

As for DnD 5E, I'm not terribly worried. If I like it enough we may make the switch if it comes out around the time our paragon and/or epic campaign comes around--but only if there's enough material available to make such a transition and the players agree. Otherwise, we'll be sticking with 4E even if there's a 5E out.

Anyway, I'm doing the DM work of preparing your next encounter(s), and then will begin mapping it out appropriately, so expect to see a map update from me tonight. No more stalling. With that said, it can take me hours to make a map I'm satisfied with, so you may have to bear with me.

No I am not mad, I am ecstatic that I had a really amazing idea with the real possibility of being used, and doing what char-op has been clamoring for but not actually done anything about - fixing Righteous Radiance. If it were a feat, it wouldn't even be a feat tax. It'd be the last payment you need to make before you get to claim ownership of and operate a giant death ray.

I blame not sleeping on this excitement over something that's actually fairly trivial in the grand scheme of things. I somehow get my best/most insane ideas when I don't sleep, and that's not a good sign. And I know I shouldn't get my hopes up, because it's almost never worked out in my favor before, but just this once, I want to believe that I had an amazing idea that'll see the light of day.

White Lotus Dueling Expertise just went from pretty meh to amazing for arcane classes that want implements and weapons at the same time.

And yes, Devout Protector update is nothing short of completely and utterly great for sword and board paladins. No range restriction at all on that means anybody who didn't already have a shield bonus now gets one for free.

They finally fixed zone ping-ponging, yay.

Also, updated versatile expertise finally. Huzzah.
>> No. 7522 edit
Duelling Expertise is more interesting for Sorcerors than any other Arcane class, really: some Sorcerors want to use daggers, so getting that is neat, and having the option to wield an implement they are not normally proficient with is nice for elemental builds.

Otherwise, meh, it doesn't add a lot to the other Arcane classes.

So Astaroth are you getting Devout Protector expertise.

>War Wizard’s Expertise
Prerequisite: Any arcane class
Benefit: You gain a +1 feat bonus to the attack rolls of arcane powers and basic attacks that you make with a light blade or a heavy blade. This bonus increases to +2 at 11th level and +3 at 21st level.
Also, when you use an arcane attack power with a light blade or a heavy blade, your attack rolls take a –5 penalty against your allies.

I like the one that gives proficiency with staves, orbs, etc., though. Warlocks could find a use for it too as opening up staves to them gives them the Staff of Ruin implement which can be pretty important to non-Darkspiral warlocks who aren't interested in any particular brand of cheese.

Incidentally, was thinking of retraining feat list upon hitting level 7 to this:

1. Master of Stories
2. Skill Power (Legend Lore)
4. Improved Initiative
* Devout Protector Expertise
* Mounted Combat
6. Improved Celestial Steed

If I can't make myself a better defender, I'll have to go with being a better leader and make some substantial contribution to knowledge checks. And my history modifier would be the equivalent of a +1 bonus, so I'm not losing out on anything. Also don't see any other feats I really need besides that.

Slaying or disabling the taskmaster outright should cripple the morale of the imps and break the hold over their workers. Stunning Palm, Your Glorious Sacrifice, Hunger of Hadaar, whatever works. Just take him out of the fight quickly.

Message to Astaroth hiding somewhere:


hi
>> No. 7647 edit
With Bern gone I think we lost our tactical leader.

I plan to Winged Horde the monsters surrounding Folka so Folka can make good his escape, while putting Roth behind Sariel to avoid losing a healing surge for her.

For the Move Action, I'm Fey Stepping past the rubble.

That leaves me a Minor Action and Action Point; I intend to use the Action Point to launch a Charge attack an Imp down or repeat my Winged Horde. What do you think?

For the Minor, I'll Mark the Troglodyte not near Folka.

The others should avoid nearing the Drow that used Cloud of Darkness, and ideally focus fire on the Troglodytes, I think. Troglodytes risk us suffering the attack penalties and all; attack with non-lethal to keep Torinn/Astaroth happy. I'm not entirely sure we can afford just focusing fire on the Taskmaster, since we don't know its HP values and Bern's gone.

The cloud of darkness would be an incredibly useless ability if it could be foiled by a light source.

Now, I don't really see this as too debilitating to you, really. You're a monk, and total concealment only matters as far as melee and ranged attack powers go. Burst and blast powers aren't affected at all (though they take the troglodtye stench penalty if you're there).

You have an at-will close burst and your flurry of blows can slide stuff around. You can easily set them up for something nasty.

For instance, hit somebody, slide them into position, then drunken monkey the troglodyte with an action point and get second flurry of blows. A recipe for disaster of the delicious sort.

Also, you can use surprise strike since you have CA and daze somebody. Really, you can just completely wreck the enemies near you, then saunter on out like a boss.

Or pummel the troglodyte with attacks vs. will and/or reflex and take it out of the fight. Mark = soldier I think so high fort and AC.

If possible, sliding stuff into my zone will auto-damage them once/round. Provoking an OA from the Drow by moving means I'd teleport them into the zone, adjacent Sankis' Taskmaster and let them repeat the attack against Sankis' Taskmaster, providing Dimensional Vortex finally hits.
>> No. 7723 edit
>>7722
I think only Folka has any sliding powers, and that's a single square push on his at-will.

Anyway, Bern, can I request a Sly Fox Spirit attack on the Taskmaster? Putting pressure on him should, from an in-game perspective, force him to either beg for help, beg for mercy, or break his hold over them. Unless the imps are elites (I thought we were supposed to get this info with a check, where is it), then the biggest threat is gone and the battle's pretty much just clean-up after that. Better to do this before he gets a chance to use an action point, any bloodied abilities kick in, and before he snaps out of his daze.

Sariel's Booming blade would make for a nice catch-22 with the imps, who will be forced to engage her in melee or suffer an OA. If they trigger it once, odds are they'll never want to do so again.

George, if you can't escape after making another check, just curse and attack the taskmaster anyway, even if it is from prone. It's better than doing nothing, at least.

>Sun Elves don't have creepy pupil-less eyes
<Good>.

Eladrin are roughly of human height, standing between 5'5" and 6'1" on average, but are lighter, weighing in between 130 to 180 lbs. Even exceptionally strong eladrin look rather slim compared with other races, looking athletic rather than muscular.[1] Most eladrin are fair-skinned rather than dark, though sun elven skin is a hue darker than that of the star elves or moon elves. Most eladrin have black hair, with silvery hues common amongst moon elves and star elves while blond or copper hues are more common amongst the sun elves.[10] This hair is often worn long and loose.[1]
Eladrin eyes are most commonly green, with sun elves commonly possessing golden eyes and moon elves commonly exhibiting blue hues.[10] Violet eyes are also not unheard of, though rarer. Unlike moon elves or sun elves, eladrin native to the Feywild lack pupils and have eyes that appear to be solid orbs of color[1] while more common varieties of eladrin exhibit eyes normal except for the gold-speckled appearance of moon elf eyes.[10]

Eladrin, like elves, grow at a decelerating rate throughout their lives. Very young eladrin mature at a rate comparable with humans but during adolescence slow to a near stop until about 110 years of age, at which point eladrin are considered mature. Elves then remain vigorous and active until the middle of their third century. Even so, after this most eladrin suffer few of the infirmities of old age that plague other races, remaining full of life until the end.[1]

If I attack Taskmaster, I've potentially killed something that's just taken its turn and has no guarantee of ending the encounter. If I attack the Drow, I permit Bernkastel egress to the leaf wall's safety, and Folka can move around more. If I attack the Troglodyte, Folka can engage nearly anything on the field without provoking an OA. Actually important etc.

I'd say it's fine to ignore the taskmaster for the moment, someone else can take care of him later in the round. Between the other two, if you can do enough damage to kill the shadowblade, that'd be preferable, but otherwise the troglodyte seems better.

Maybe instead of switching to Warden, Torinn can take this theme instead? It kinda looks about like almost everything you wanted. Well, you'll lose the Hospitaler stuff, but it has a lot of what you wanted.

>>7865
The attack itself seems ally-unfriendly, but the zone it creates is not so I don't think it's really a huge deal.

The main considering is that it seems questionable to me if you count as being "on the ground" while mounted~ Of course I'd rule that you are, but it is problematic because the close burst would use your own space as the origin rather than the mount's.

>> No. 7982 edit
Hide tells me short rest healing is being nerfed, but this post assumes pre-nerf. I'll change it if it's being nerfed.

Initial stats
Myn: spend 0, heal for 0+8+0=8, 45/50 HP, surges left: 5, overhealing: 0
Folka: spend 1, heal for 12+8+1=21, 47/48 HP, surges left: 3, overhealing: 0
Bernkastel: spend 1, heal for 11+8+1=20, 47/47 HP, surges left: 4, overhealing: 6
Torinn: spend 1, heal for 19+8+1=28, 52/58 HP, surges left: 2, overhealing: 0
Sureiya: spend 1, heal for 13+8+1=22, 49/55 HP, surges left: 1, overhealing: 0
Sariel: spend 0, heal for 0+8+0=8, 35/51 HP, surges left: 7, overhealing: 0

After the first short rest:
>I recover my healing powers.
>Inspiring Word for Torinn heals him for 7 more HP. (58/58, 1 overhealing)
>Healing Spirit for Folka heals Sariel for 8 more HP. (43/51)

After the second short rest:
>I recover my healing powers.
>Inspiring Word for Sureiya heals him for 7 more HP. (55/55, 1 overhealing)
>Healing Spirit for Bernkastel heals Sariel for 8 more HP. (51/51)

After the third short rest:
>I recover my healing powers.

End result etc.
Myn: 45/50 HP, surges left: 5
Folka: 47/48 HP, surges left: 3
Bernkastel: 47/47 HP, surges left: 4
Torinn: 58/58 HP, surges left: 2
Sureiya: 55/55 HP, surges left: 1
Sariel: 51/51 HP, surges left: 7

So we have 22 surges as a whole. It costs 1 surge to cast Comrades' Succor, so we have 21 surges to distribute amongst ourselves. My tentative (and arbitrary) suggestion for distribution is like this:

Surges after Comrades' Succor:
Myn: 3 surges
Folka: 3 surges
Bernkastel: 3 surges
Torinn: 5 surges
Sureiya: 4 surges
Sariel: 3 surges

Please feel free to change things etc.

Which means using daily powers within the first couple rounds so we can take control of the fight, yes?
>> No. 7993 edit
>>7992
Yes, but shutting down an encounter doesn't necessarily have to be about using dailies though, more like focus firing or picking targets to hassle so they can't do their job. (Which I will be trying to do more, i sort of did it this game locking down the troglodyte, but besides that I should be going for the backline but I didn't get much of a chance)

Not necessarily, yes, but is usually kinda hard without them.

Torinn is one square away from the target, so too close to charge and way too close for avoiding rolling initiative atm. And yes, you're going immediately after I Vengeful Elementals and long before Hunger of Hadar.

Can't be helped, limbo is engaging Sankis tomorrow. If I'm not here for it, I want Vengeful Elementals at H-60, J-70, K-68, and N-68, all at elevation 1.

To do:

Folka needs to ready an action and/or get in position.
Sariel declares war
Bernkastel: Vengeful Elementals
Torinn: Charge Sankis, Holy Smite

And then in some order or other:

Sariel: Phantom Chasm
Myn: Hunger of Hadar
Sureiya: Charge the frog
Folka: Charge the frog

And Bern is going to be gone today. I disagree with Hide anyway, if I recall, most of the melee was going to charge the frog demon so it doesn't actually change anything. Torinn's tiger can jump-attack so he's good.

Naturally the plan was originally based on the assumption that Sankis was a solo, but I think Bern still wants to go ahead with the plan.
