Hey everyone !

I'd like to try to inspire everyone into the joys of making and playing a meat head ! I've come up with what I think would be a great incentive to do so.

I'm offering up 2 larges of each type to the first 10 people who come up with a true blue "meat-head" DPS build and caps it. I'm sure I'll have to force you guys to take those scales & stones while I know you'll all be begging for the bones Rolling Eyes

Now, they don't all have to be straight up frenzy barbarians, because that would be boring, but instead I'd like to see you guys try to come up with some builds with DPS as their main focus, and maybe some fun stuff mixed in there also. If you want to make a barb, that's perfectly fine to !

I'd like you to try and share your build thoughts with everyone else so that everyone can bounce idea's off each other and see what each of you can come up with. Post your builds in this section of the forum so that everyone can give feedback and maybe some idea's of their own.

Feel free to "steal" some idea's from the DDO forums also, there are lots there to work from also and by all means, add your personal touch to them to fit your playstyle !

If you've never made a true meat-head, now's your chance !

I've already set aside the 20 larges of each type, so let me know if your interested and maybe post me a build to go with it and I'll put you on the "Watch list" which will be tracked here (remember, only the first 10 win)

A couple of quick things:

- DPS should be the main focus of the build, adding in extra things would be great, but try not to sacrifice too much DPS to do so.

- Make sure you consider the fact that your meat-head will probably take dmg quite often, so make sure they'll be able to take a few punches to the face !

- I wouldn't recommend doing one as a TR, let's aim for nice, fun easy leveling instead of the TR grind.

- If you've already recently started (or started but not finished) a dps/meat-head build, that's fine, just shout out and let me know.

- Only one character per player can win, but feel free to make as many builds as you want !

- One last thing, please make sure you make something you're willing to play & raid with on a regular basis Smile

Well, that's about it for now, let me know if you're interested and lets see what kind of fun we can have with this !

PS: I forgot about those stupid large horns, nope, they're not in the offer above LOL

About the only way I'd get another toon to cap at some point this year (aside from Yazston, but he's not a meathead) is if I could get some people to run a consistent group with one of my meaty builds...maybe a Horc only group...

hmmm...any takers??? Wink


speaking of cap...gotta get Yazston Shroud and ToD flagged...and run him in Hound/Vod sometime soon, now that he's 17... :p


see, I'm currently dealing with a major case of alt-itis...I run Nyy so I can get him closer to his TR, and I run Thongo only to get loot for my alts...otherwise, I've spent more than an hour on at least a dozen different toons in the past 2 weeks...it's getting BAD Wink

All my characters are meatheads, you can just give me a couple large horns when Valkiren caps!

What exactly are large horns used for anyway? I have one or two, but I don't seem to have any in any of the item plans I've come up with...I'd be happy to swap em with ye if I won't need em for anything.

LOL Andy, I totally forgot about large horns !

Nyy, they're used for Greensteel creations. I actually had to use one for your GreatAxe earlier this week.

Overall they're not too common, but also not overly used, so kind of balances out. I used to have a bunch, but sold them all off a while back for plat.

What happens if you're a vegetarian? Can you make a Brussels Sprout-head?

I'll certainly be giving it a try.
Aravok's going to be a 12 fighter/6 ranger/2 rogue
Of course, I'll just be trying to get him to 20 anyway, my first capped character would be nice after all! But seeing how much I seem to quest of late it doesn't seem entirely likely Twisted Evil
