Bug Reporting

If you come across a bug, the best thing you can do is use the in-game bug reporting function:
  1. Click on the "Help" button. It's the third button from the right and it looks like this: "?"
  2. Click on the "Report Bugs" tab.
  3. Follow the instructions contained therein.

You can also submit an e-mail out of game to ddobugs@turbine.com

Note that sending a report to ddobugs@turbine.com is not the same as requesting Technical Support. If you need a response to help deal with a problem you are having you should send your issue to Technical Support as well as reporting the bug.

How to get our help on the forums

Considering the volume of posts with little to no information attached, I decided to give you some guidelines for getting help.
  1. Search the Knowledge Base. Please. Pretty please. With everything on top.
  2. Describe the problem completely and exactly. Include all error messages. Completely.
  3. Describe all troubleshooting that you have already done. Including any wacky rituals or smacking the side of your computer.
  4. Post a dxdiag of your computer. This can be obtained by clicking Start->Run, then typing 'dxdiag' (without the quotes). You then can save the information to a text file, and then post it to the forums.
  5. If you're having a launcher issue, please post your launcher logs. These can be found in C:\Documents and Settings\<yourname>\My Documents\Dungeons and Dragons Online\Launcher. On Vista it will be here: c:\users\name\appdata\local\turbine\Dungeons and Dragons online\launcher. Also kindly enclose the log entry with a pair of code tags (click the "#" sign in the editor or type [code] log here [ /code] with no space before the /). This makes it much easier to read.

As an added note, a little courtesy goes a long way. There are users who we've worked with constantly trying to get to the game, and they've been in good spirits the whole while. These users have been getting the most attention.
