    Awesome narration Skare. Especially love this part:

    I am just finishing up some games that were in various states of completion. I anticipate starting soon (if I can shake this Dragon's Dogma Ur-Dragon addiction).

    I shaked my addiction with the paper Ur week. His massive HP got lowered and Grace Period allowed to insta kill each of his hearts. You could kill him several times in one day. Till then all his loot was rare, after that week, there was Ur stuff everywhere. big grin

    If you want, I can gift you his stuff. I should have everything, but the Archstaff, which I gave to my lady's pawn.

    Thanks for the offer but I'm one of those nuts who likes to grind and farm. When that dragon pops I'll enjoy the loot all the more. As for playthrough idea I still haven't had that aha! moment, ideas still welcome.

    Hey E,

    You could always do a Vet's run, and put the old crew back together for one more round kicka$$ fun.

    I find in situations like this sometimes the best idea is to go in with no idea what you want to do. If you don't have a goal in mind, you'll end up just letting the natural flow of the playthrough dictate where your build goes. If you have a build in mind like Faith Knight or Pure Archer, that will add predictability to the run (rushing to free Urbain followed by killing bosses for the miracles they give, or rushing to get the best bows followed unlocking certain merchants for arrows), but playing with no build in mind is actually the closest I've ever gotten to repeating the feeling of playing the game for the first time. It would add a bit more mystery in that nobody knows what's going to happen because the ultimate result is based on decisions made on a whim.

    HERE YA GO E.

    Do a pbwt run. Log online and do 1-1. Grab the eph eye in trophy area up top of nexus. Log offline and continue playing offline. Thomas dupe your eyes and do a pbwt run. It may be a pain having to die alot, but I remember my very 1st playthru which was during a pbwt event month. ONLY dupe the eyes and nothing else.

    This.  This was how I started my most recently playthrough -- just go through areas by feel, don't worry about what you "need" for your build.  Way more fun, and I enjoyed the areas a lot more.  Also picked up more details and used obscure weapons, because I wasn't sprinting the whole time and also had to scavenge a bit.

    Maybe make it semi-formal rules:  1) you cannot beat consecutive areas in a row and 2) you can only use weapons/spells you obtained from the last 1 or 2 areas you beat.
