It’s hard to make bacon without a pig, milk without a cow, or an adamantine longsword without adamantine. You’ve gotta have the basics to make the things you want!

Before and After: Bugs!

Recently a discussion came up on my twitter feed about giving people examples of good and bad bug reports that players submit to us. After all, bug reporting is similar to actionable feedback - it’s not something that is instinctive to the average consumer.

Keeping the Coinpurse Full

I keep hearing a comment that has lead me to believe I am…unusual in the way I play DDO. Too often I hear from my friends, my co-workers, or even just random players I PUG with that they don’t understand how it is I’m never out of plat on my characters. I thought maybe it had something to do with the classes I play, but as I’ve started to expand the variety of what I play I’m noticing that I still have coin to spare. This tells me that something I’m doing is different, so I thought it might be fun to share some of the habits I’m doing that seem to be working well for me. Some of it may seem…odd…but then again I’m never in a position where I can’t afford the things I want when I want them, so how bad can it be?
