Toldain Talks

Because reading me sure beats working!


Toldain started as an Everquest character. I've played him in EQ2, WoW, Vanguard, LOTRO, and Zork Online. And then EVE Online, where I'm 3 million years old, rather than my usual 3000. Currently I'm mostly playing DDO. But I still have fabulous red hair. In RL, I am a software developer who has worked on networked games, but not MMORPGS.

Items and DPSmod

I thought I'd list a few items obtainable through crafting, quests, or purchase that boost DPSmod. I'm excluding items that drop from raid mobs, even though some of them are quite good. I prefer to focus more on stuff that can be done independently, and on what can be done to leverage yourself up to the raid level.

  • The Assasin's Stud drops in Crypt of Agony.

  • The Belt of the Scorpikis Lord offers a +1DPSmod, and can be purchased from the Scorpikis faction merchant in Jarsath Wastes.

  • The Ivy-shrouded Earring of Tunare is the reward for a quest line in Faydwer, which I expect can be soloed by a level 80ish character. There is some discrepancy between the Allakhazam listing of this item and the EQ2i listing. Both list it as giving +8 DPSmod, but Allakhazam adds a proc that adds an additional +6 DPSmod. The stats are lower than you'd see on a tier 8 piece, but the DPSmod could well be worth it.

  • The Judicious Easyloader fabled adornment line can be used to add a +DPSmod of up to +12 to a thrown weapon bag. I haven't tested this, but it seems to me that this must be an addition to DPSmod under all circumstances, not just ranged combat, just as the other stats on such a bag add under all circumstances. This adornment is made by tailors.

  • Bow users don't need to lose out; the Judicious Composite Gear line of adornments, made by tinkerers, provides the same DPSmod as the Judicious Easyloader, but can be applied to a bow. For the same reasoning as above, I believe this modifier will apply to all autoattack, not just ranged.
