I wouldnt count on it and besides there many other classes better suited for adding to the game

Why? only purpose alignment serves in ddo is determine what class you may or may not be and quests are pretty much set up in the asumption that we are good or at worst neutral and we dont get enough content as it is for them to do some especailly for evil players.

We can only hope. I look forward to the day when DDO embraces all nine alignments.

Then the devs are free!!

Expands options for alignment weapons and aligned gear and spells.
Makes interactions more interesting in PvP, should we ever get a good team PvP setup going (smite player, ftw).
Opens up possibilities for realm vs realm, like City of Heroes vs City of Villians.
Makes more sense for us to cause havoc in good-aligned dungeons w/ evil characters. (okay, there's really only one of these, but still)
Twisted versions of existing quests - imagine trying to break into the fort in kobold assault, or hunting down interlopers in madstone crater. Saves on dev time, makes us evil types giggle.
Because it would be cool. :P
Because neutrality is not enough, we wish to feel the purity of unrighteous anger flowing through our veins.
Because other players are far more challenging than any currently realistic AI could be (without being cheesy/cheating).

Probably not worth the dev time for a mod or two, until things settle down and we have the first wave of PrEs implemented, but after that? Heck yeah.

I would only agree if Evil classes and alignment became a broader option with a few quests and a raid especially designed for PVP competition.

Normally PVP quests would work on a Time Attack completion with a PVP combat at the end, but other types of quests could be made in other modes such as: PVP tournaments, Team Death Match, Capture the Flag, Protect the VIP, Escort mission, Free for all, last man standing, etc...

Ok it's a playstyle but close enough for government work...

Dont get your hopes up. The devs have already shown us that they haveno issues giving us Evil PrC's without the Evil Requirement.... Assassin anyone?

If we see Black Guards, no doubt we will see them without the Alignment requirement.

never gonna happen even if they give in and add evil

Waste of time developing quest options for evil time better spent on developing content for majority


Because it would be cool. :P Opinon


Because neutrality is not enough, we wish to feel the purity of unrighteous anger flowing through our veins. yeah right:D

Because other players are far more challenging than any currently realistic AI could be (without being cheesy/cheating). Again pointless with our pvp

Not worthy of dev time for a few dozen mods more likely

Don't flatter yourself. But tell me... what are you gonna do when evil alignment finnally get brought into DDO? Would you have the courage to roll a evil aligned toon? Simply for the diversion from waiting till next patch?

Better question what are you going to do when you finaly realize they will nver add evil:cool: and it take more courage to stand apart from the crowd and not follow the herd.

With all the things in the pipe you want PvP additions.... ok.

How about finishing PrE's for all classes, and maybe some content.... kk thx

well its not just pvp....

you could have evil alignments in the game without adding a extra "player v player element...

For instance, our lawful toons dont suffer when they see a rogue (chaotic) stealing....

because they should arrest them and toss in jail....

or if your a lawful toon and bust up property that not yours... (ransack), loot chests...
is stealing...

I think the OP wants a new class to play, and everything that a new class should offer...Like here (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=189876)

A non-evil blackguard is basically a paladin.
So...you wanna play a blackguard, make a paladin and act evil. You can do that in DDO, there's no such thing as losing your paladinhood here ;)

:D Well I realize you might feel lonely, out of the flock, I am trying to encourage you to fly a different route...

We, I and the rest of the DDO flock.. are plunging happily toward a future that isnt set.. And your one of the few strays that follows the flock, complaining about leaving your cozy nest.

Winter is coming.... And its just a matter of time.. Are you gonna fly? (roll evil) or die (roll another LG toon)

I am not depressed evil isnt here... I am happy enough to hope it will be.

actually only a very few of you are asking for it and evil isnt flying its sinking to the depths. And you might as well give into despair cause it aint gonna happen they gave people assassians and no evil so give up now

Forget blackguard. Give me kalashtar as a race, and soulknife as a class, and I will name my firstborn after the Dev that implements it!
