    Default A Gathering of Guides, A Travelogue of Tools

    This by no means aims to be a complete listing of all of the hundreds (thousands?) of great guides and tools created for Dungeons & Dragons Online over the years. What it does aim to be, though, is a relatively up-to-date stickied thread which gives creators a place to get their guides featured, and serve as a go-to location for folks looking for things.

    Are we missing something? Probably. Let us know about it (and link us to it) in the thread below! Additionally, feel free to post in this thread when you have a new guide to announce (although you should also feel free to create a separate thread for it in the forums here as well.)

    Default Thanks!

    Thank you for this resource Cordovan!

    I was searching for another forum page like this last night and could not remember the name, and could not find it for the crafting links. I got the planner from Google last night, but needed the other links as well.

    Thanks Cordovan for this compilation, and an other thanks to everybody who provide those resource, tools and tips, or help to maintain them! Keep the good stuff going!
    * We have collectable bags, hell even hireling folders, but can I have that 6-pack for my potions please?
    * Having already a past life on the dieng EU servers, I rerolled here and started from scratch as I like the game and the community, so lets see what awaits me here

    Need to include DDOPreload (downloadable guide to getting the game to load quickly on the first run).
    Author of Info Blue UI Skin (Really wish Turbine would update the skinning interface and enable all the new UI parts.)
    If you don't have an SSD, you should be using DDOPreload (fixes the slow first login issue)

    Great list Cordovan - hope it keeps getting added to and maintained.

    Back in the halcyon days of the old forum there used to be a couple of entries that I found incredibly helpful. The titles were:

    - "The Lost Quest Guide" (original post id http://www.ddo.com/en/en/forums/forum.php?t=122192)

    This had links to other posts with walkthroughs of quests broken down by level. The wakthroughs were quite thorough and many included diagrams of puzzles, suggested buffs, types of monsters etc.

    - "Static Rewards and Unique Loot New" (original post id http://www.ddo.com/en/en/forums/forum.php?t=121279)

    As suggested by the title this was a list of the static loot and the quest/chest in which it could be found so that if you were hunting for something or wanted to see what else a quest may provide it was all in one place.

    Unfortunately when the new forums were implemented these posts and all of their linked sub-posts were broken and lost. While some of the information they gave can be found on DDO Wiki or in the other links you have provided, none are as complete (well, up to about U16 anyway) or as easy to follow as the originals.

    If there is some way you could resurrect these posts and get them back in circulation as part of your guide list it would be absolutely brilliant.

    Thanks again, and keep up the great work.

    This forum posts are still there. The only thing Turbine would need is to fix the broken rewrite-url

    and then even old links from search engines should work again.

    Thus your links are:

    https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/228976 A great "how-to" guide for solving the Vale puzzles, rather than using a solver. Complete with a link to practice on (somewhat hidden in the fourth paragraph)

    Because let's face it: using a solver can take forever, and while you're trying to get it set up people are asking if you need help and somebody's likely jumping on it trying to solve it randomly and screwing up your solver.

    Thanks for the info. Works well for the Loot but unfortunately for the Quest Guide it just gets you to the first index and after that its broken again - needs to have the whole set of nested indexes fixed plus the list of quests updated (its a bit older than I thought).

    I would suggest The Moon Breaker Novels under lore. I don't know if they are still being written but I enjoy the ones that are posted.

    Default Post this in New Player Advice Section?

    Any possibility you could sticky this in the New Player Advice section? It would save lots of folks lots of links.

    I want to prevent having to update this list in two places, but I have linked to this thread in a stickied post in New Player Advice and Guidance. Thanks for the suggestion!

    On two other suggestions:

    My understanding is that Dragon.Star's Static Rewards and Unique Loot New thread has largely been deprecated in favor of JJFlanigan's online tool, which I did include in the guide.

    On the Lost Quest Guide, I agree that it was an incredible resource, but unfortunately, until someone either fixes all of those links or we correct our re-direct issue, I'm hesitant to add it to the guide.

    Just for clarity, the loot thread was never mine, that has been the "baby" of many other forumites over the years. As for my online search tool, it seems to have fallen out of favor of late with none of the editors adding / updating items and no new players wanting to step forward to assist with keeping it up to date sadly.
