Any news on what enemies are included in the new Monster Manual? Are Drow finally included?

Have U31 enemies been added to existing Monster Manuals as well?

I don't suppose the monsters in the newest quests will finally show up in the new/existing monster manuals? (Still glad to get another one even if the answer is "not yet")

Large mail queus? You mean like when I get spammed with favor mail every time I ER and complete an epic quest even though I already had that favor unlocked long before?

I'm very enthusiastic about a new monster manual and you can count on my digital tuppences--I'll always pay for new installments of the MM so keep your DDO slave labor working hard on them!

I wonder how much labour is really involved in creating one considering there was no mention in the Producer's Letter. Then bam it's included in a patch.

So is that a graphical error to the dcs or an actual error or both?. The reason I'm asking is that according to what I see my Pk is a 77 dc and my hmm is a 90 dc so are these figures correct and not actualy doing that or is it that they are realy 80 and 87 (3 past lives)?

I haven't run that in almost a month since the last GM I had autocomplete the Doppleganger area had said it was a known issue. Makes farming a Lantern Ring a wee bit difficult if I have to keep putting in a ticket to get past a specific encounter every run through...

Please fix this.

I am as well!

FOr any that are wondering, as soon as I get home from work tomorrow and see what's in the new Monster Manual, I'll be turning those monsters on in the MM on YourDDO for any that want to go hunting! :)

Heh, as nice as that would seem initially, they would get grilled soooo badly for rushing it out without any Lamannia testing first.

As to the other points made in this thread...with all the things that need more immediate fixes, it is concerning that these 'patch' notes are way to small to justify a patch...I don't care if the monster manual is on it. I'm hoping there's a little more to this.

And I'm guessing drow isn't in the manual, since they would likely have announced it to build hype if it was.

All the Justification I need for a patch personally.

From my Understanding, FoM is pretty much mandatory for raids, and you can find it on gear, which I expect people wear.

While the Number of sources of Bonus Damage Dice on weapons could include everything from Feats (Cleave), to Enhancements, to Deadly Weapons to ANY weapon with a Min Level High enough to justify a 1.5[w] or higher on it...

If the code is written probably and there is no database changes, it would be very simple. A lot of cutting and pasting with the programmer just having to change the numbers of the monster manuals. In my mind, it looks like a few tables are involved, and I have spent enough time thinking about it.

Code tables
MMTable = Monster Manuals
Field 1 = MMid.this would be values of MM01 through MM99, first row would be MM01
Field 2 = quantity of monsters, I will use ten
Field 3 = the monster ID, which then points to the monster table with all the corresponding monster IDs
Field 4 = the monster ID, which then points to the monster table with all the corresponding monster IDs
Field 5 = the monster ID, which then points to the monster table with all the corresponding monster IDs
Field 6 = the monster ID, which then points to the monster table with all the corresponding monster IDs
Field 7 = the monster ID, which then points to the monster table with all the corresponding monster IDs
Field 8 = the monster ID, which then points to the monster table with all the corresponding monster IDs
Field 9 = the monster ID, which then points to the monster table with all the corresponding monster IDs
Field 10 = the monster ID, which then points to the monster table with all the corresponding monster IDs
Field 11 = the monster ID, which then points to the monster table with all the corresponding monster IDs
Field 12 = the monster ID, which then points to the monster table with all the corresponding monster IDs

Select MonsterName from MonsterTable where monsterID = (Select Field3 from MMTable where ID = MM07)
Select MonsterName from MonsterTable where monsterID = (Select Field4 from MMTable where ID = MM07)
Select MonsterName from MonsterTable where monsterID = (Select Field5 from MMTable where ID = MM07)
Select MonsterName from MonsterTable where monsterID = (Select Field6 from MMTable where ID = MM07)
Select MonsterName from MonsterTable where monsterID = (Select Field7 from MMTable where ID = MM07)
Select MonsterName from MonsterTable where monsterID = (Select Field8 from MMTable where ID = MM07)
Select MonsterName from MonsterTable where monsterID = (Select Field9 from MMTable where ID = MM07)
Select MonsterName from MonsterTable where monsterID = (Select Field10 from MMTable where ID = MM07)
Select MonsterName from MonsterTable where monsterID = (Select Field11 from MMTable where ID = MM07)
Select MonsterName from MonsterTable where monsterID = (Select Field12 from MMTable where ID = MM07)

MonsterTable has all the descriptions and data on the monster.
MonsterTable
MonsterID = MONid
MonsterName = Rat
MonsterDesc = "rats prefer to live underground........"
MonsterCharRewards = integer 6 these values come from another table
MonsterACCTRewards = integer 5 these values come from another table
MonsterMasteryRewards = 1 these values come from another table
MonsterRatID = 1 through however many rats there are (go read another table that has all the ratnames

I wonder what large mail queues means.

Isn't there a limit of just 50 and 50?

I would think that MONITORING adds even more lag. I am expecting the mail system to not work, now.

I am getting a double whammy today.

Turbine is messing with the game, and my ISP is doing maintenance starting in 30 minutes.

If things don't work, I won't know who to blame. Usually, that means I have to stay off for quite awhile until all systems get whatever "features" that have been added/changed/upgraded ironed out.

Yeah, I am wondering that too. I know mail doesn't delete like it says, and thank Khyber, as I think we all use for back AH storage.

Is there any way to apply that patch fast? I am on a mac and when an update occurs I have to dowload the WHOLE game and it a process of 3-4 hours, I believe PC users update really fast, How can I update fast on a MAC?

thanks in advance.

Do not use the mail system for long-term storage, unless you enjoy losing things.

It doesn't make sense that expired mail stays in the mail box. Whether it has attachment or not, EXPIRED should be gone.

Very odd, I'm on a Macbook Pro and it just patches properly on my system. What happens that makes you download the whole game again? While the patch process does take some time, it's no longer than the time it takes for PC users.

So... does anyone with a premium account can see a new monster manual volume in ddo store? I see only volume 1 (which is free for premiums and I bought all the other volumes) just like before the update.

Edit: lol, posts about same thing appeared while I was typing mine...

Monster Manual 7 not showing up in store.
Only Volume 1 is showing and I already have it and volumes 2-6.

Tried in game and load screen stores on different servers and its not available for purchase.

Compared to an account which has no manuals and all the volumes are there including the new volume 7.

Thanks for the reports. We've been investigating, and it looks like we will need to take the DDO Store down for a bit in order to fix this issue. We'll provide more info shortly.

Added additional monitoring to help us investigate the impact of large mail queues in-game.



Raises Finger... You might wanna check out my in game mail que.
It got so large by selling things on the AH and never taking things out.
Seems things keep being stuck on 1 day count down for way longer then it should.

From what I can tell, the new monster manual is as follows:
Drider, Drow, Bear, Purple Worm, Werewolf, Yuan-Ti, Draegloth, Dretch, Glabrezu, Monstrous Plant.

So, Menace of the Underdark races :D

I actually had this predicted for U32, but I'm happy to be wrong in this case :)


It has been a while, but I remember a Dev posting about possibly-maybe-unofficially working on a new MM edition that included Drow. This was prior to the last two editions, so I would say that this is due. *cough*
