    Wink Happy 8th Anniversary DDO!

    From all of us on the team, we are thrilled to be celebrating DDO's 8th anniversary with you, and want to update you on some of our upcoming plans.

    We're pleased to say that we are currently putting the final touches on Update 21: Legendary Halls, and getting everything ready for its release on March 10th. We can't wait for you to see our reinterpretation of Ed Greenwood's classic Forgotten Realms module the Haunted Halls of Eveningstar, and we are also really looking forward to adventuring in the huge dwarven ruins of Thunderholme, complete with two new raids - including our first battle against a Shadow Dragon (well, technically she's a Shadow Dracolich, but try telling her that!)

    We're also working with the newly-formed Players Council to discuss our plans to expand Three Barrel Cove into the Epic levels in Update 22. Our second update of the year will include new Guild Airships and amenities as well, so be on the lookout for a lot more information on those things in the near future. Our plans for the rest of the year were outlined recently by Rowan in a Producer's Letter in December, and we're still on track for that work as well!

    Some of you may already know a bit about me, but I might be a new name for others. I've been a Producer on the DDO Team for the past three years, working behind the scenes to keep the gears turning and trains running on time. I've been playing DDO since the original Stormreach Beta, and have been working in the MMO business for more than a decade (my resume includes work on City of Heroes and Guild Wars as well.) I am also a tabletop D&D and LARP gamer. Expect to be seeing more of me lurking around the boards, reading your feedback, and occasionally answering a question or two!

    Cheers!

    You should tell someone (Cordovan?) to add you to the dev tracker, otherwise I think many people will miss your posts.

    Thanks for the post!

    I personally think an epic 3BC is a good idea, since at its current level it gets skipped a lot in heroic.

    Yay, new shinies soon
    Say NO to leaving d20 behind, say NO to bland game experience: say YES to scrapping the Combat Change!

    Furthermore, it is my opinion that crafting should not depend on build.

    I 100% agree. I'm okay with making the open area simply upgraded to epic level, but please... make new quests or seriously re-do the current ones.

    Players Council... make this happen!!!!

    I had suspected DDO of grabbing a City of Heroes Dev or two after the AC/Dodge/PRR mirrored Def/Dodge/Res in CoH, and also after seeing the Breakfree type powers in the EDs.

    I miss that game and community, its good to know that some of you landed on your feet after CoH closed.

    I'm a former player of CoH, I was in the Beta for DDO, and I've been actively playing DDO since it went f2p.

    Good to have you here!

    Hey, do you think you can convince someone to add Guild Cloaks. That was something pretty popular over there.

    Saw this earlier but didn't know you were the new producer. Congrats on promotion. Now cracked the whip on those loot devs and get that stuff polished for the new raids.

    What is your stance on triple point bonus? Could care less about the other stuff.

    Are pretty darn good pieces of news, IMO. I have no doubt that others have had this experience and interest in the past, but it's good to know you have practical experience with both D&D MMO and PnP D&D. I'm sure you and the PC will bring good things in the months to come.

    So no new treats or tidbits to dangle in front of us?

    No hint of this years birthday "surprise"?

    No Gnomes in the future? No Goblins? No new Monster Manuals?
