Is there any chance we can get the map feature in DDO updated? As it is now, the only place to see a fuller map of the land surrounding Stormreach with map points for slayer areas or quests is one place. That is on the ship, Eye of Kol Korran that we go to for getting to Sorrowdusk Island.

So I am wondering, at some point can we get this updated for not just on that ship but to be able to open up our map anywhere to a more world view map much like on LOTRO has as an option? Even if it is just for reference purposes.

This is a very good suggestion.

Seems they did update the map we have, somewhat. In the first one, it's interactive if you click on "Stormreach" which will bring up the second map for a closer look at the area around Stormreach. A few problems with both. The first one shows the desert and Thernal ruins a bit closer to Stormreach than other maps out there do. Also, Gianthold is clear at the middle bottom but it is cut off so you can't see what it really is.

Two, the closer view of Stormreach area shows Searing Heights and The Twelve further apart than what they really are. If you go into the Searing Heights area you can see right over some mountian peaks The Twelve Towers in all their glory, with lighting flashing and all. The map though shows them on different sides of Stormreach when both of their gates in the market are not far off from each other.

If you notice, both of these offer more details and landmarks than we currently have. Although I doubt the Dev's will ever work on getting us slayer areas, quests or raids to each area but they are ideas to add to the map or at least something to work on putting them in game at some point so we can visually see all these wonderful landmarks up close and personal. Even if they are reduced to backdrops scenes.

If this is the map you'd like to see, it's already available. I was in the harbor yesterday with the map open and accidently hit the magnifying glass symbol under the map and got the city of Stormreach 'district' map. When I hit it again the map above opened.
