I hadn't considered how much noise a singer puts out nor how it works on LE enemies. I'm considering a respec into something else. Maybe Berserk? I don't have a zerker yet.

I think you're fine to stay a singer. The noise doesn't really bother me (though I grunt every time I attack as well, so...) and I know some play w/o game volume.

The LE stuff is only occasionally annoying, and shouldn't happen that much unless we run into more beetles. If you're interested, here's a couple of posts about it:

Thanks for the info! Interesting read. I had a few deaths that looked exactly like that (as did a few members of the group....).

I guess this is one side effect of doing all of my levelling with Frenzy, and then respeccing into War Cry. I didn't learn the skill. Now that I know, I can do better. Maybe, maybe a respec is still in order. I could put a few points into, say, Bash, and then enough into Strength to wield Insight in a non-eth, elite polearm. That way, I could just melee at times. I'll give that some thought this evening.

I haven't played with game volume in years, so I don't notice the noise. I noticed the beetle carnage (x2 :LOL:) but like Vildecor said, we likely won't encounter any more of them, and even if we do, it's pretty limited areas in A5 where they can spawn.

Pro tip of the day: If you're gonna leave an MP group in the middle of A3, it may be a good idea to pick up some of the pieces needed to make Khalim's Will.. :unsure:

Edit: A couple of surprises along the way
And a 241% Steeldriver from Meph.

Same issue as last time? Let me know if max should rehost. I think that helped after you rebooted last time?

Yeah maybe we can try? Rebooting laptop + network didn't help, can't join via mobile hotspot either.. :/

That was fun! Also, playing a caster barb was ... a new experience. Allegedly, a singer makes a decent pit runner, so I may try that out. Or, I might just respec into a berserker for pit runs.

Thanks everyone, great fun as always, even though I barely dealt any damage!

End of this month I'll be temporarily moving to the sunny southern hemisphere, so time/motivation to play might be an issue in Nov/Dec... :) Still, I'll do my best and try to make it work whenever is good for others, hope we can keep this going. Sept must be completed after all. :D
