The DDO game servers will be brought down from 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Eastern (-5 GMT) for a restart to allow us to activate the DDO Winter Games. Thanks for your patience, and we'll see you back in the game soon!

I'm dreaming of a blue Risia
Just like the once I never used to know
Where the tree tops glisten and halflings listen
to hear bladeforged in the snow

I'm walking in the air...
Floating in the sky..

We're walking in the air
With skates upon our feet, we fly
For coins of purp and blue, we flounder through the sky.

We're skating down the ramp..
I'm gliding and I grab a blue
The purple's so darn close, I need it badly too..

*interlude*

The Jester now has gone
The Ice games now are here, for me
To make my icy burst, a wonder it will be..

Risia.. icy burst.. recipies I need..
Lowbie weaps... for my TR... Some kobolds gonna bleed!!

I'm turning in my coins..
The randomness it makes me cry...
I miss 1 recipe, and lost my heart to try

**interlude**

Somebody.. please sell me..
What I need so bad..
Icy burst.. for my sword..
It drives me mad...

I got my icy burst!
My lowbie weapon now is done....
And now I go TR..
It's time to have some fun!!!

IMHO, the best time to just wander around the Harbor and simply admire the scenery...

Wish they'd make the effect city-wide in Stormreach - but such is life, I guess.

Confused.

In the past, a database switch was turned on/off, now it is server reboot to activate?

BTW, an unintended feature of this, was that if you happened to hit a lighter than air spot just as the games were turned off, you could fly around the public instance of the harbor and get to spots way up there. Sadly, this feature went away if you entered a dungeon, changed harbor instance(harbor 1 to harbor 2), changed instance(marketplace, Inspiratation, teleported), or logged out of the game.

Probably due to the barter interface on the new Jack Frost and Risia Altar. It's never been live before.

Just curious why this wasn't combined with the maintenance yesterday? It seems like it would be a good idea to avoid downtime when possible.

Just wondering.

The worlds have reopened, and we'll see you in-game! We'll have a more formal announcement soon, but the Risia Ice Games and Midwinter Festival are now active as well. Enjoy!

well, i just logged on, and went to house K to restock some pots.... and if what i see is any indication... you may have gotten your wish, Mem.

also might be why they needed to shut down the servers this time XD

i'm impressed ^_^ very nice! *clap*



edit: scratch that. seems only house K got the snowy treatment. dang.

Possibly because the Harbor has been altered since the games were last run

Seems we were overlooked in the "Turn it back on" phase.
