View Full Version : Current Features Available For Beta

05-09-2012, 11:15 AM
Expansion content will open/close - and be accessible at varying degrees - throughout the beta. Check this thread often for the latest list of accessible Expansion content during Open Beta and what to pay attention to as you play with it!



To allow us to test the permissions and prerequisite flows of Expansion, all account-level permissions have been set to the state they will be when the Expansion launches. This means that:

If you have not yet purchased the Expansion, your account is not flagged as being eligible to access Expansion-specific content or Challenges. Purchase of the Expansion will allow your beta character access.
If you are not a VIP, you must purchase the Druid from the beta Store in order to access it and must receive tokens from the NPC to access Eveningstar Challenges.

Druids may not use Veteran Status.
Closed beta characters were not wiped from the Server. Enjoy!


Lamannia XP is currently accelerated, and set to 3x Experience Boost for Heroic content. No acceleration has been applied to Epic XP.
No Loot Bonuses are currently active in Open Beta - go seek out the new random treasure changes and at-level chest adjustments!
The Stone of Experience is currently available on Lamannia. To learn about how to use/acquire it, click here (http://www.ddo.com/stoneofexperience)!
