How to Enjoy Arabel
You know what? From now on, I am STICKING to crazy, overpowered builds. You know why? LAGDEATHS. The only way to survive them it to have crazy overpowered builds.
Arabel is an ENEMY of RP builds.
I can't even remember how many times I am doing that stupid combat dance and trying to heal myself. And then I'm in the fugue and someone tells me I was hit by three healing spells the moment the lag stopped.
Do yourself a favor. Get a HP monster.
You will enjoy Arabel so much better without the anger and stress that lagdeaths give you.
I and ace will provide the sympathetic ear in this situation, people. Since before now, neither of us ever got past lvl 5.
Seriously though, lag can kill even the most overpowered character out there. It's just one of those things we can't do anything about. After two characters with the level cap at 5, I can suggest only one countermeasure; Don't do stuff if you're getting high lag.
Above all, don't let it blow you off your PC in ultra-frustration. You'll regret it. (Yea, I know this.)
Ace, all yours now.

I'm locking this because there is no way I want to encourage power-gaming builds and am pretty disappointed that a player would even do so. As a member of the DM team, we happily avoid power-gamed builds. You won't enjoy Arabel with them more, but quite frankly less because you'll find many DMs are unimpressed with them.
