    Default Where is the Tarrasque

    The title says it all.


    I am fairly new to DDO, and i must say that this game is arguably the best D&D based computer game ever made.
    The fact that it is regularly updated and kept up is a very good sign that this game will be around for a while.
    That being said i have a few suggestions.

    1) Tarrasque: nothing from my PnP days excited me more than trying to cut him into little pieces.

    2) Druid: where is he?

    3) Playable Evil Alignment: maybe even quests based on it.

    reply and let me know what you think.

    You just named some of the things asked by most people:

    1) More badass mobs
    2)druids
    3)evil

    EDIT: There's one quest where you can be quite evil. Purging the heretics in house p. Death to the unbelievers! lol

    I would not say DDO is the best D&D game out there but of course, it is your opinion.

    In my opinion the Tarrasque was a ridiculous monster to put up against a party. When my brothers and I created our own game world we went so far as to explain why there isn't one in our world.

    He was taken to negative hp and teleported to the bottom of the ocean. Since he would continually be drowning, he would never regain positive hp. He would also be taking constant crushing damage.

    Other mobs, like some of the demon princes like Demigorgon - sure, lemme at him! The tarrasque? product of a weak, unimaginitive mind. (IMHO of course).

    Didn't the Tarrasque first appear in Forgotten Realms? If so, I'm quite happy to leave it there.

    I too, want the mighty tarrasque. It could easily be an end-game raid boss for a quest that isn't on another plane of existence.

    You defeat the Tarrasque by leading it into a canyon with 6000 megatons of explosives on the floors and walls. Then blowing it up.

    Then have a platoon of hundreds of archers with highly explosive arrow/gernades volley it for several minutes. Put them on a floating ship too.

    Then fill the ship up with lava and crash it into the Tarrasque.

    The tarrasque can be slain only by raising its nonlethal damage total to its full normal hit points +10 (or 868 hit points) and using a wish or miracle spell to keep it dead.
    from the d20srd.

    Meaning there's only few ways of killing one.

    1) Tarrasque: nothing from my PnP days excited me more than trying to cut him into little pieces.
    Meh... I always saw the Tarrasque as lazy DMing. Stuck for an idea on how to challenge high level characters? Time to roll out Big T. I'd hope Turbine has better/more interesting ideas then that.

    If they do roll it out, I'll happily beat it down. But, it has always struck me as a "the well's gone dry" sort of encounter.

    2) Druid: where is he?
    In development. Maybe next year, but I've pretty much given up on seeing them before my interest in the game bottoms out.


    3) Playable Evil Alignment: maybe even quests based on it.
    The Devs have said many times that this is not going to happen for a number of reasons.

    The Tarrasque pretty much became obsolete when the Epic level handbook came out - simply create an Epic level spell that erases the Tarrasque's existence.

    Well were is the Purple Worm? Owl Bears? Feyr? Death Knights? Displacer Beasts?

    I could go on about a number of iconic DnD mobs not in game I would like to see. However, I can't answer why they are not in as I think that has been asked a lot. Heck it might even have been answered by a dev many moons ago and I didnt see it.

    Back to the Tarrasque... They would have to boost him to ungodly nastiness for the DDO enviroment.

    But keep hope... at one time in DDO we didnt have Orcs to fight at all!

    Talking about bringing in The Tarrasque is a lot like talking about what would happen if you ran into Cthulhu. Someone in my gaming group once said years ago "I'd Nuke him". Another person piped up, "Sure then he'll just reform d10 turns later as Radioactive Cthulhu. Good job there."
