    I assume(and hope) that, when you refer to the 'pricing details' of Forgotten Realms, somehow, VIP's will get the pack for free due to their status. Will VIP's be able to get forgotten realms for free, or are they left to bite the dust again like artificer?
    Here's a riddle for you: What do you call people who play the game for only a day and apparently know everything?

    P.P.S: Then you could get us someone well known outside the D&D industry (aka BRUCE CAMPBELL).
    Bruce Campbell, Yes! I can hear it now.

    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    As they weren't planning on telling us any of this just yet, they are being decidedly coy as to what they actually say.

    Basically their marketing strategy was forced into play earlier than they wanted. They can't deny it's happening, but they can certainly try to contain it to get themselves a little closer to their original schedule (which has been borked already).

    It is an expansion, everyone who wants it will need to pay for it, just like other MMO's expansions. Lotro just release a paid expansion so I assume it will be the same mode, also the last time I looked at WoW, if you wanted to play the current game, you had to buy the original game and all the expansions that had been released (this was pre-cataclysm, no idea now).

    How will the Epic levels effect enhancements? Could you have a assassin 2 ninja monk 2 (can't remember its name). Or would It keep the same.

    I could have used some more cowbell in this post.

    You are gonna want to give the Bard class a cowbell.

    I hope so. They warned us about this enough and it makes sense. It's not like the Enhancements/Prefix/Suffix's can't be overwritten to make them level appropriate.

    That said, they could fix the Ritual ML bug, add a Masterful Craftsmanship II, and add Epic Masterful Craftsmanship I to allow a ML-free additional Prefix or Suffix to be added to ML 20+ items.
    It would be nice if they would also fix the enhancement value of Holy Burst and Pure Good along with a few other prefixes/suffixes if we're now going to have to have the full ML associated with the weapons.

    I have two words for you: Damage control.
    Turbine's method of damage control is to delete threads, issue infractions and refuse to talk about the issue for several weeks at least and then make vague soothing noises without actually admitting that there is an issue once several weeks have passed.

    Often, the "soothing noises" portion of this method is skipped.

    I think it would be a great marketing move to have Ed Greenwood do some voice work either as a DM or character cameo. He is a pretty good talker in interviews I have seen. I would probably keep his voice work relatively small though unless he could pull it off well. Even just some token voice work would be nice. I like the idea of immortalizing D&D legends within the game. I like the inclusion of Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson voices in DDO.

    Since TR is a Heroic option, I think it would make sense to make it only reset Heroic XP.
    All I can say is, really don't worry about it. Your TR will not be wasted.

    Dr Ruth would have been awesome. If you havent ever heard her, you need to google some of her interviews.

    I vote Jerry Springer, or Judge Judy.

    They both have roughly the same effeminate voice that has been standing in the exhaust cloud of an excavator for 10 years.

    It was actually discovered by DDOCast, yes stainer did publicize it. But the interviews were pretty much done the week before and released on the same day.That and we had already been told that the news would be released before the end of the month.
    The day was planned in advance.

    Doing a Google Search for site:forums.ddo.com "Betty White" comes up with a surprising number of entries.

    ^This. I can understand (sort of) having to pay a little extra for an entirely new game world, and even a 'Premium' class like Druid. But as a VIP, I'd expect that a certain 'base' amount of the new content would be covered by my subscription.
