I have wanted this for the longest time! One of the best series in the entire game! A STAPLE of DDO....How can Waterworks NOT already be made epic? It would be amazing! Also, do this for Shan to Kor, and the other awesome series that have been with DDO forever, but #1 is WATERWORKS!

Call me jaded...
But - fighting off a sewer full of waste-eating kobolds just doesn't sound too "Epic" to me....

I guess they could spice it up a bit and throw in a dragon or whatever, though it would probably need new tunnels or areas for the monster to live in and make sense - and if that's the case, why not just make a new quest that is "Epic" to begin with?

I think the whole point of "Epi-fying" lower level quests was to quickly populate epic levels with content to run when the cap was raised, with the least amount of dev time and resources? Although, I've heard it said that epi-fying content takes as much time as starting from scratch... but, how could it, when they are starting with an already generated dungeon and art assets?

Now that there is a good modest amount of content for epics and legendaries - I would rather see development of new legendary content that is "scaled-down" to Heroic and Epic levels, instead of rehashing old content.

Sorry - I get the draw, but...

Not sure power boosting those kobolds is a good idea. Their egos are already massively over-inflated.

Sorry I can't get behind Epic Water Works, Epic Shan To Kor probably...now Epic Catacombs? Easily, lots of undead add some Mummies and Liches .

how bout this?

instead of fighting the kobolds you are aiding them.


yaunti or saugahin or something is invading the ww - kinda like invaders. but instead of running the kobolds make a a stand.

you save them and make peace with the kobolds1

or something something darkside

How about a chain in the sewers that's Xoriat themed, only with the ambience being more horror like the Missing chain rather than silly like the recent Xoriat chain? Say helping kobolds (maybe the kobald that has you evacuate dogs from his part of the sewer and the chief you spare in the first quest of the waterworks chain could be quest givers and liaisons between the harbormaster and the kobolds) in exchange for aid navigating the sewers while fighting for mutual survival after Kyrzin cultists invade. They could be looking for the remains of the gelatinous cube from Creeping Death for research, with Kyrzin having the insane, utterly alien scientist characterization for daelkyr that's in the Eberron books.

The cultists themselves could be former Stormreach citizens that were infected with some disease of Kyrzin's making that was unknowingly brought to the city by Droaam troops since Droaam borders the Shadow Marches. Perhaps the chain's end quest could have a chance of dropping some sort of everbright augment or at the very least a wide assortment of crystal and ooze themed weapons (maybe a new close range aoe runearm for melee use whose blast effect leaves a DOT behind) that could be used in a followup chain in the Shadow Marches where you fight Kyrzin himself.

Meh, maybe just make some waterworks themed challenges outside of waterworks?

The love and enjoyability of the waterworks can be kept alive through challenges

Make all of the rewards premade crafting shards (Requiring a high crafting level to use but granting crafting experience upon use), potions, and cosmetics.

Stench Shard (Weapon Prefix)
Bleeding Shard (Weapon suffix)
Roaring Shard (Weapon Prefix)
Vampirism+Constitution damage combo shard for extra effect slot on weapons
Healer's Bounty Shard (Extra effect slot on armor, rings, and shields.... not a crafting option until the gear you are crafting is at least level 14)
Paralysis Shard (Extra slot, requires materials from the hardest of the challenges)

Experience potions that only work for increasing the experience gained for a single quest, drink when you enter a quest.... effect lost when you finish the quest or start a different quest.

Why settle for epic Waterworks when we could have Legendary Korthos?! Culminating in a raid where you have to fight the dragon and shatter the Mindsunder crystal simultaneously! :cool:

lol love this thread

specially the korthos part

isn't there a xoriat theme with waterworks wilderness as a quest invaders i think it is.

but would be cool to have new Water works quests. you killed the kolbolds and the renders and beholders moved in. you cleared the sewers again and lo and behold new enimies have moved in to be cleared.

That would be a cool idea for another anniversary dungeon.
A Korthos quest where we play the role of Celimas and Jeets and Talbron in escorting the new players to the quests. Only the new players do it horribly wrong and die, leaving us to deal with the dangers that weren't prevented.

This would be funny. But certainly not as a new quest in the game. The game needs to take itself seriously and keep the in-game world and the real world separated.

Yeah, I agree with you completely. It would be so great if a number of awesome series were made epic, and people would want to run them more. I was also thinking of an Epic Korthos, but I don't think that's gonna sell.
