View Full Version : Better Way to Represent DR

I'm a P&P D&D player previously, so I respect the wish to follow tradition, by using the "DR/Piercing or Bludgeoning" nomenclature to represent DR.

However, this may be cryptic or confusing to new players, since the DR is actually the opposite of what is written. Since DR works in largely the same way as Resistances, why not have them represented the same way? A little icon for Slash, Pierce, Bludgeon, Cold Iron etc etc and a number next to it.

I'm a HCI / Usability Engineering guy, so I'm hoping the the Devs would seriously consider this to the betterment of DDO's excellent interface. ;)

Any supporters or views, pls?
