ddo only has spiders and scorpians. Consider adding more variations of bugs? Like giant: centipedes, worms, ants, beetles, robber flies, leeches, etc.

In three barrel cove there's scorpians by the beach instead of crabs. Tangleroot could use some giant centipedes, and Red Fens could use leeches.

I'm sure they will add plenty of bugs with update 8.


ZING!

You beat me to it! LOL

Back to the OP, I would also love to see more vermin to fight in DDO! They really need to have a quest where you fight a Succubus as a boss, and there are swarms of crabs everywhere.

More mob races is a good idea, but I guess a race must firstly exists in D&D books and then it can be introduced into DDO.

Personally I'd like to see Formians and Beetles, because I've fought them in my other Dungeons and Dragons games. But I'm not sure those two are in the Eberron campaign setting.

Under the Big Top has a Succubus boss... just no crabs. >.>

Also, I would like to fight crabs, lobsters, and crayfish where appropriate rather than scorpions. :)

You do have Ants/Halfings and Leeches/Pikers! They are just named differently for some reason.

Also, Oozes seem kind leech like. Just add bleeding to their attacks instead of acid, and you got it!

Carrion Crawler!

Over night, it would eclipse air elementals as far and away the most annoying monster in the game. Their attack does zero damage; instead, it applies a paralytic poison. Once all members of a party are so paralyzed, the crawler eats them alive at its leisure.

Or that's how it works in the PnP rules I grew up with. In DDO, a literal implementation of the above rules would lead to stun-locked parties-- unable to die, yet unable to take any action.

Ah! The Carrion Crawler... I always hated fighting those things in the earlier D&D games (especially in Baldur's Gate 1 where you had to fight a bunch of them in this tunnel, and then have to deal with this hideous queen. *shudders*. Carrion crawlers would make a wonderful addition to DDO.

This would be hilarious.

Of course there are bugs in D&D, with the classic Fire Beetle as an example.

Here is a link to a type:vermin page on a D&D wiki, which should start people off: http://dungeons.wikia.com/wiki/SRD:Vermin_Type

So does Wrath of the Flame.
