    Default WarCry hands on with Module 8

    Like DDO? Like reading about DDO? If you answered yes to any of these questions (preferably both) then you'll love this article from WarCry, as they detail their hands-on experience with Module 8: Prisoners of Prophecy!

    By far, my favorite of the four was the Air sub-dungeon, which was also the last. Unlike the other three, which were all in different types of caverns, the Air realm is essentially one big semi-spiral path that stretches high into the sky. To make things worse (or better, depending on your point of view), there aren't any railings, and wandering tornado-like elementals have a tendency to knock you high into the air. It's possible to land back on the platform, but it's also possible to fall off - which thankfully only brings you back to Sor'Jek's main chamber, so it's more of a nuisance than a fatal catastrophe.
    This part doesn't sound too promising. Granted, he wasn't an experienced player, but given the headaches air elementals have given players in the past, it could still be bad.

    Is this the answer to the question: "what could be worse than Coalescence Chamber?"

    I thought the same thing when I read that...oh. great - more time on my back. Still, the high level quest sounds challenging and interesting overall. I really liked what I read.

    I found this quote to be all too true:

    "All four were certainly entertaining, but the Air realm in particular had a great sense of "platformer" about it. The team intended the Sor'Jek timed quest to be completed by a coordinated, skilled group of players, said Paiz - it was meant to be challenging. Groups would have to split up, especially in the Air subdungeon, with players having to push buttons and pull levers to clear a path for their teammates. Though the team joked that they were "sadistic," Paiz explained that the DDO community was very, very resourceful. One of the biggest challenges for the developers was keeping up with their players and finding new ways to make them work for their rewards. "

    So instead of listening to players who the majority of hate things like col chamber and the pit, the go ahead and make something worse and on top add air eles... so let me get this strait

    they make a mod that was supposed to have the lev cap increase according to devs in begining of year.. no cap increase....

    they delay the mod for their new playtoy hirelings.. oh mod 8 will launch without them...

    no raid.. no raid loot... no hamster wheel... umm

    and now one of the few dungys we get is a complete waste of our time????

    Well, unless they significantly changed how Air Elementals work, I imagine that the Air sub-quest is going to be very frustrating.

    I bet you another major mnemonic there will be short sight distances and pop-ups so you can't engage at least some of the ellies at range.
