The Favored Soul is much like a Cleric, only that they have fewer spells but have a higher spell point pool so they can cast more spells. The are great healers, can dish out some damage as well as buff and take some damage too. This makes the Favored Soul a great solo class. Like many other classes, getting a few Rogue levels helps on soloability and makes the character more versatile. Below you can find a good example of a Favored Soul Solo Build.

This build is meant as a general guide so feel free to switch it up as you want.

DDO Leveling : Guide to Bonus XP and Faster Leveling

Leveling in Dungeons and Dragons Online can be a bit tedious and you will have to run the same instances quite a few times when leveling. Especially on TR (True Reincarnation ) Characters that require more experience points to level up. There are quite a few ways to speed up the leveling process though and in this guide I will show you all the possible ways to increase XP gain through Potions, Tomes, Bonus Xp weekends amongst other things.

Dungeon Bonus XP

These bonuses are the most common XP bonuses and you will almost always gain get one or two when running a quest. Examples of these are The Aggression bonus where you get a 10% bonus for killing a certain number of mobs in an instance or the Ransack bonus which gives you 15% bonus for smashing a lot of objects in the instance. Most of the time these are more effort than what they are worth, so I usually don’t pay much attention to these unless I know that a certain bonus in a certain instance is worth the trouble. read more

DDO F2P (Free to Play) Leveling Guide

For the fastest, most efficient leveling in DDO, a paying subscription is needed. But it is fully possible to level to level 20 on doing F2P content. You are going to have to be smart though, because you will probably run out of quests and content at some point. Leveling a TR (True reincarnation) Character on a F2P account to level 20 will be even harder, if not even impossible. You will also at some point have to run some dungeons with big XP penalties and leveling will get slow. This guide will show you what quests are available to you F2P, you should do all of them on each difficulty at least once. Not only for Xp but for favor. read more

Warforged Wizard 18 / Rogue 2 – Best DDO Solo Build

The Warforged Wiz 18 / Rog 2 build is one of the most efficient and fun solo builds for DDO. Combining the toughness and survivability of the Warforged, with the DPS of the Wizard and the utility skills of the Rogue. This build will make it possible to solo a lot of the game that other classes and builds can only dream of. This build is excellent even with a 28pt build but a 32pt build is recommended.

The Warforged races are naturally strong and durable so even though you are a Wizard you will be able to take some damage. And deal some damage Melee in the beginning. Start out by using a high damage two handed weapon, like a Falcion, Great Axe or a Great Sword. Before you get high damage spells this will enable you to plow through the first couple of levels anyway. If you got some gold to spend, invest in a good weapon. You will also be able to self heal because of the Repair line of spells. Repair spells are like heals that only work on Warforged, making the Wizard / Warforged combo extremely durable.

Getting one or two Rogue levels is also vital to soloing efficiently. Being able to disarm traps and having the Rogues utility skills, saves a lot of time, health and makes the soloing experience easier.

The Wizard class is a powerful spellcasting class. You will be able to do high amounts of damage. Both AOE and DD spells make sure you can handle any mob or group of mobs.  In addition you have repair spells and buffs to help you survive tough encounters. Some spells will make a lot of difference when you get them. Like the Wall of Fire spell that you will get at Wizard level 7. This AOE fire damage spell will make almost any instance a walk in the park so after getting it, leveling will be quick.
