This is unacceptable! How can you take down the servers during the 10th Anniversary special event? I broke an arm so I could take a week off from work and play DDO! Have you no respect for your paying customers? The least that you must do make this up to the playerbase is give everyone a free Otto's Box of each variety and 5000 Turbine Points or I will be very very cross and may threaten to stop playing this game!

Sorry to be the party ****er but in my 6 years of playing DDO I think update 30 is by far the weakest update yet. If you take away the 10th birthday event, which will be gone in a month or less the only thing the update is giving us is the gnome. Cannith crafting has been pushed back yet again because of time issues and there is no new content.

Yes I know people will instantly post that I am just whining and should stop complaining but if they stop and look they will see too that this is a weak update.

Pretty much have to agree with you. Even with warlocks, though we had no new content, we had another update 1 month later. Personally for me an update with no new content is NOT an update.

Well they could push the update another three months, but I fail to see how that's preferable. Of course, you'd just be complaining then too.

The usual picking question: How long will it take this time until we can play again:

( ) They will be on time or even earlier.

( ) They will need another 1-2 hours as usual.

( ) They will need at least 6+ hours and maybe the whole day.

( ) DDO will work only after the first hotfix is applied.

Have fun guessing!

Try going 12-18 months without an update of any sort. Vast and mysterious are part of the history,but in recent
years the updates have been frequent. Some bring a lot, while don't, be happy the game is progressing.

Correct, everyone is getting that. The Patch has been loaded and you can update your launcher, but the servers are not yet online. This is the way it's always done. Patch gets loaded, have to wait for the testing to be done, then servers go live.

While this is the way it's always done, that error is different. Usually the login servers are just down to block logging in. I don't think that means anything, but that error is definitely... different. Likely they just changed something. But perhaps there's an actual error in the patch file. Dooooom!

Only thing I do care about in this "update".

No new content. (Well, a festival quest that last one month then it's gone)
No new loot for TS & HOX, those raid are dead (probably shroud too now)
No fix for shroud clicky.
No new crafting.

but GNOME....bah.

need to wait another 4 month and probably not get anything again due to crafting being shifted.

Yes I know people will instantly post that I am just whining and should stop complaining but if they stop and look they will see too that this is a weak update.

Agree this update is smaller. Especially in comparison with the last one. U29 had a 2 level level cap raise, complete new random loot system, a bunch of new epic feats, legendary feats, 3 legendary raids, (one with a large crafting system) and two legendary quests. But the last 6 years standards that is probably the 2nd, or maybe 3rd, biggest update. And the largest that was not an "Expansion pack" requiring extra purchase.

I don't look at each update needing to stand on it's own. I'm looking for Turbine to put forth a more cohesive vision for the game and see that each update supports that long term plan. I'd rather that be the focus than each update needing to have "wow" factor on it's own. Some updates just may not really hit your core interests in the game. I'm not a huge fan of Gnomes. Or halflings, for that matter. Don't like small races. So I'm not really excited about the majority of this update besides the birthday stuff. But that's OK. Some other players are excited and the game benefits from diversity of interests. Personally, I'm still working on the U29 stuff for a lot of my characters. I get, however, that some folks might be bored with U29 stuff already and not seeing anything in U30 to get them excited. Hopefully, U31 will spark their interest.

Both are completely FREE to VIPs!

From the https://www.ddo.com/en/update-30-release-notes:


The Gnomes have arrived! Free to VIPs and available in the DDO Store.

Gnomes: Gnomes are a sharp-witted race that excel in a variety of roles, including arcane spellcasters. They start with a +2 bonus to Intelligence and a -2 penalty to Strength. This purchase allows you to create new Gnome characters on any server. FREE FOR VIPs!

Deep Gnome Iconic: Start at level 15 with a powerful Deep Gnome Earthen Illusionist! Deep Gnomes have access to special racial abilities and unique Illusion spells. This purchase allows you to create new Deep Gnome characters on any server. As Iconic Hero characters, Deep Gnomes also have the ability to use the Hall of Heroes Passport feature when entering the game. FREE FOR VIPs!

How many times do they have to say it?

I saw a news release that said 1295 for both versions- which would be some kinda awesome as I have never had an iconic race before...

I was grinding favour all last week to get there (just made it after pulling an all nighter from Sunday morning to Monday morning, with a brief break).

My daughter caught me looking at the youtube videos about the Lammania previews, and declared it "cute", so Pappa gotta getta Gnome....

not everyone is VIP, I mean if you have the money to spare my kid would love free VIP subscription, most of the players are premium

lets see some data on that. i call bs, its your opinion. i bought the game in 06. and since f2p i have bought most of it again. sometimes im vip (like when i want to open first time elite), and other times premium during the months with no new content.

Absolutely. Just remember we are using our pitchforks and torches to guard the devs against the trolls. They hate fire and if that doesnt work, stab them with the pitchfork/thermometer.

Right! *sets thermometer on fire, because if fire is good and pitchforks are good, then flaming pitchforks must be even better. They stack, right?*

Don't worry, Devs! We'll protect youuuuuu! :D *stabs at trolls with flaming thermometer*

F2p since it came around, vip wasn't worth it (imho)
Spend 50 bucks to get the important packs (on sale) and earned the others by constant tr-ing, farming favor along the way.
Bought the first expansion and was happy i did (though that stupid cat is 1 shot-ed all the time and a waste of development)
By the time the second expansion came around i was eager to shell out the money for, biggest mistake in ddo, couldn't play it for the longest time on most of my toons till prr was introduced.

Refused to spend a penny on the game ever since

Free to play all the way!

"most of the players are premium" i said lets see the data you base that on. and i again say lets see the data, you are just blowing smoke
Prove most are VIP?

Seriously I would say that it's about 50-50 based on the people I play with. Personally the minute it was F2P I went premium and in the end it's saved me serious cash, my wife is on the 99/year model. Bought a **** ton of points when they had x3 points sales (never gonna see that again) and managed to get most content at 50% and 75% off (again not likely to see those discounts again) and have everything I need to play happily for a good long time.

I will say though that most of the people I know how play and have played since beta / launch are premium now. The VIP guys who canceled their subs in protest over changes that they didn't like who didn't move to Premium are long gone since they couldn't play much of anything without VIP; they just left and didn't come back.

I think it's silly to assume that "Most players" are anything around here. What is for sure is that we have healthy populations of F2P, Premium and VIP kicking around

I wasn't replying to you but to the person who stated his "educated guess" that Deep Gnome would not be Free to VIP!

An "educated guess" based on absolutely nothing and in fact contrary to what has been stated numerous times by the Devs on these forums since the question was first asked when Gnomes hit Lamannia AND is in the Release Notes which were available at the time he made that so called "educated guess"!

Query: How did you afford a sub before F2P, but can't afford one after? Did 15 bucks a month suddenly become more like 150 after F2P? It's not even that for me, 9.99, since I go three months at a time. It's cheap enough that I can stagger two VIP accounts, keeping one paying this month, one next month, rinse and repeat since they autopay.

We have also adjusted our Recommended World from Argonnessen to Orien.

Orien again?

Why?

You've tried Orien as the Default twice already and it failed miserably BOTH times!

First attempt - Orien is the ONLY Server to gain the default and NOT become the most populated Server since Wayfinder and we all know Wayfinder doesn't count!
Within two weeks of losing the Default Orien is back down to it's pre-default levels again - We have the DDOracle stats from the time to prove this!

Second attempt - Orienites go nuts because of lag and blame it all on the fact that they've been the default server for all of two days!
You take the default away from them and give it back to Cannith which suffers no extra lag at that time {We've had plenty of lag these past two months but haven't had the default in over 4!}.

What makes you think a 3rd attempt will do better?


And why do you keep ignoring Khyber and Thelanis? NEITHER have had the default at any time since Wayfinder was created!

How long did it take? I get past all the downloads just fine, but once it gets to the "Installing Pre-Reqs" screen it seems to just freeze. Am I supposed to be seeing things happen, like I do while it is downloading the new code?

10+ minutes now with no activity, and that's after giving up and restarting once before.


Edit: Third try worked. For those having the same issue, when it worked I didn't even see the "Installing Pre-Reqs" screen, it went from downloading the patches straight to the server selection screen. So maybe just exit and retry if you see that screen instead of giving it 5-10 minutes each time like I did.

Sorry to be the party ****er but in my 6 years of playing DDO I think update 30 is by far the weakest update yet. If you take away the 10th birthday event, which will be gone in a month or less the only thing the update is giving us is the gnome. Cannith crafting has been pushed back yet again because of time issues and there is no new content.

Yes I know people will instantly post that I am just whining and should stop complaining but if they stop and look they will see too that this is a weak update.

I fully agree, Gnomes? Another race/class update that focuses on the magic user. First Warlocks, of which, the one I created is leveling about twice as fast as my main toon... because it can. It's just that much more powerful than my Tempest Ranger. Now a new race that seems custom built to be an improvement to an Artificer or Wizard... yawn. (Or maybe to quote a character from Kung Fu Panda "Lame.")

Plus, opening up all of the festivals (lag production events)... none of which I remotely enjoy, nor think the rewards are worth the play pain, does not inspire me as a "Thank-You for playing our game for the past X years." Didn't try the new dungeon in house P. because the betas were so short, let's hope that makes this update something worthwhile having.

Haven't been to Thelanis, so cannot speak for it, but Khyber definitely has a good server population and gets enough new commers without being default server. and does not complain about the new people causing lag, but actually welcomes them and keeps them to stay around?

According to the release notes you should get a token auto-granted in your inv, then you exchange that in House P for the gift of your choice.

Special 10th Anniversary gifts can be obtained by trading them for a token in House Phiarlan. Each character that logs into the game during the anniversary event through March will receive a token.
But I received no token, so can not make an exchange.

We are investigating. It appears that some additional items were added to the list, but then a check-in error meant they didn't make it into our live build.

What if we already traded in and would actually prefer something else that was added but missing at this point :/

Anyway regarding the update itself, I understand that it can be disappointing to some who are expecting new quests and mechanics. Just because this update doesn't contain what you want though doesn't mean the update in itself is lacking in any way. If my memory serves we've had updates with more fixes and less new quests before, and the devs had their hands full dealing with gnomes plus the anniversary contents. Just because you're jaded about your play style and the update does nothing with that doesn't make the update weak, it just means you're unwilling to muck around with the new stuff, or so much as enjoy DDO as a game. If you ask me U29 was a weak update, not because of the volume of content but because of poor implementation. I'd personally like to see more bug fixes than new content in an update every now and then, maybe then we'd have more time to fix really age old issues that were never gotten around to.

All in all, it's 10th anniversary, and whether you like the update or not we're going to celebrate, with or without you nay-sayers.

EDIT: As to making Thelanis default, a new population would be nice, but we're getting a couple every now and then otherwise, plus as far as I can tell Thelanis has the worst of performance issues at this point.

The new items will include a Heroic Sword of Shadow, an XP token (for something like 100,000 XP), the Cloak of Winter Ice cosmetic robe, and one or two other things. Depending on your interest, you may want to hang onto your tokens for now.

Thanks.

Gah! I flipped a coin over levik's and the quiver - I would totally have taken the SoS on that character and done another EK 2H life instead of the fighter vanguard I'm now going to do instead.

Oh well. Free stuff was free, can't complain.

wont that **** off people who already turned them in and now wasted their token? so what about those people? im just asking because we already know people selected items.

Those people need to take a chill. Its a freebie, and you didn't have it yesterday and you probably still took something you liked.

Would one of the other issues happen to be Elf AA not being able to take Final Strike?

New loot or not, I think you should hotfix the drop rates of the rewards. 8 a run is a joke, this is longer then the mayban ones that dropped 21.

I also think the Ogers in your room should be changed to trolls.

Same here. I would have much rather gotten a 100k xp stone than any of the other stuff on the list, but I took something that might be helpful next time I TR instead. I guess I'll deal with it, but I do feel a bit annoyed.

Oh my. The day has finally come. I have been trying for years to get that cosmetic robe. This anniversary has immediately shot to my all-time favorite. This has made my week, thanks! :cool:

These items are all excellent options, thanks!

An Heroic SoS!!!!

My Warforged/Bladeforged will definitely be waiting for this!

When Devs? When's the Hotfix? How long do Clievelund, Coliseum, Iamthelaw, Maverickone, Openerone, Tannadice and Tynecastle, have to wait? {Molineux already has his.}.

"Wasted their token" might be inaccurate. They still got something for the token. Something they apparently wanted. "Wasted" would be them disposing of it, un-redeemed.

I know that if I'd already used my token on any of my Greatsword wielding WF/BF toons other than Molineux I'd be severely annoyed right now!

Luckily I knew as I spend a lot of time on these forums that more stuff was going to be added but many didn't!

Why no falchions? My curvy little lady with the curvy big blades would love to add to her collection.

I noticed just the Sword of SHadow was missing, from the original list, and that isn't what I wanted anyway.

I finished up my turn ins for Wayfinder, Thelanis, and Sarlona. Completely finished.

Almost finished with Orien.

Did some of Kyber and Argonesson.

After reading what might be coming I am holding off. A free cosmetic is always nice and maybe some XP and maybe something else. OK, that has me interested.

Which leaves Ghallanda and Cannith as completely untouched.

As has been pointed out, I took stuff I wanted from the current list and I am fine with getting something for FREE!

Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday.

Looks like I am back to doing Midwinter Skating and Risia Ice Jumping, which is also FREE. Too late for me to get prepped up for Crystal Cove.
