D&D Online: "Grey Ooze"
Posted: Tuesday April 25th, 2006 by

The level cap in DDO is 10. In D&D terms, that's pretty significant. In game terms, with a decent group you can hit the level cap in a week. But it's not a week of rich and diverse adventure. It's doing the same dungeon crawls over and over again.

And Turbine's lame solution to making certain dungeons more difficult? Toss in more mobs, traps, etc. One of the more insidious mobs they use to combat group effectiveness are grey oozes. Attacking them destroys your weapons. Knowledgable groups craft up weapons to use in place of their usual gear when they know they'll be facing oozes.

So, I'm sure some DDO gamers can related to Ted's predicament. For everyone else it's an inside joke poking fun at the lack of creativity the devs showed when it comes to patching dungeon difficulty.

But please... don't be content to accept my recanting of someone elses experiences in game. Go play the game and decide for yourself! Right now Turbine is offering a 7 day free trial. [Click Here for More Info.] Though, I'm not sure whether to wish you luck or offer my hope that you don't hit the level cap before the free trial is up.

Today's Pimpage: Ted is wearing an ooze-covered "Bunnies" t-shirt from Threadless.Com.
