### Level 9 at 8/45
    - I bought a dimensional augment bag on sale.  DDO Stores says bind to Character but it's BTA.
    - Just a hair of wasted XP.  This is going to be a lot more grindy in future lives.
    -  To counter, I'm using Daily Run Through bonuses.

Tip for when you get to Ravenloft. Run the whole saga N then H then E. Skill tomes and XP stones. (Unbankable unfortunately.) And going through 3 times should net you a nice haul of named gear.

I really like it when people catalogue their experience and show it to others. Takes courage and effort but when done is a great boon.
Bear Party DDO on Youtube is good for this. He gives a breakdown of his progress including loot at the start of most of his vids

    - Quests are really getting thin for F2P.  It'll take a couple/few days for this level.
        - One run through of quests 127-136 took a day: 3.5 levels.
    - The personalities of Clerics makes a big difference.
        - I like level 10, Fayden, better than level 11 and 12 clerics.
