    Default Savage Species! New race coming to DDO.



    A gaming website leaked a bunch of info today on the expansion pack. One of the things included is a game mode called Savage Species that will allow PVP gameplay with playable monster races!

    Apparently the game will be taking a page from LOTRO and adding factions to DDO. In DDO's case it will be the nation of Droam vs Stormreach. Monsters vs the Five Nations.

    The first of the Droam races available for preview is the fan favorite Troll.

    The troll has several interesting abilities and stats, along with several weaknesses to balance it out. Its favored class of course is Barbarian.

    One of its biggest perks is the +4 to Strength at creation. This can be increased to a staggering +12 over other races by level 20. To balance this trolls have -4 Int, -4 Cha, and -2 Wis and are limited as to what they can wield and wear.

    Trolls only have slots for Trinkets, Necklaces, Belts, and Bracers. Trolls have no armor slot. Instead your natural armor goes up as you level.

    Trolls are also restricted to Longbows, Clubs, Greatclubs, Warhammers, Mauls, and Staves.

    All troll players have a vulnerability to fire and acid and take double damage from those sources. You will be unable to regen damage from these attacks unless you drink a cure pot or receive another form of magical healing. Rumor has it you can take enhancements to counteract this weakness in later levels.


    Special Abilities:

    Trolls get greater regeneration at level 1. The regeneration ability can be improved further in enhancements.

    Profane Curse. Trolls get a special incite move similar to a paladins Divine Righteousness.

    Troll Profane Curse I
    Usage: Active
    Cost: 1 action point
    Spent: 19 action points
    Available to Troll level 6
    Activate this ability to gain a 100% Competence bonus to the threat generated by your melee attacks and spells for 60 seconds, making players more likely to attack you.

    Troll Profane Curse II
    Usage: Active
    Cost: 1 action point
    Spent: 49 action points
    Available to Troll level 12
    Activate this ability to insult the enemy with such vulgarity it has no choice but to divert all its attention to you. Grants 200% Competence bonus to the threat generated by your melee attacks and spells for 60 seconds.

    Troll Induce Rage
    Usage: Active
    Cost 1 action point
    Spent: 13 action points
    Available to troll level 4

    Activate this ability to send your enemies into a blind rage causing them to lash out at friend and foe alike.

    Racial Prestige line:

    Troll Harbinger of Doooom!!! I
    Usage: Passive
    Cost: 4 action points
    Progression: 16 action points
    Requires One of: Skill Focus Intimidate, Troll Intimidation I, Barbarian Past Life

    You spread doom wherever you go and to everyone you meet. Enemies that strike you have a chance of suffering the effects of the Doom spell.

    Troll Harbinger of Doooom!!! II
    Usage: Passive
    Cost: 4 action points

    Your Aura of Doom now lowers enemy saves by 4. Additionally vorpal attack inflicts DooOoom!!!111 and the enemy vanishes from sight as it quits the game.


    Troll Racial Capstones:

    Deadly Flame
    Usage: Passive
    Cost: 2AP
    Spent: 74 action points
    Your countless battles of wit with those smarter than you have increased your skill at angering others while deteriorating your charisma to the point of no return. You gain +10 competence bonus to intimidate, +2 to bonus to strength and constitution and an additional -2 to Charisma, Wisdom and Intelligence. Additionally your rants have deteriorated to insane ramblings causing any enemy you intimidate to suffer the effects of Phantasmal Killer.

    Here's some screenshots of the troll in action:












    Have a fun April Fool's Day everyone.

    And remember take everything you see online with a heaping dose of salt today lol.


    Edit: Really going to miss the Roderick's wand working in public on Monday.
    The summons are also extremely hard to get to stand still for photos and a pain to edit in MSpaint lol.

    Sadly, after seeing GitP getting ponied, it was clear that this was a joke right from the start. More disappointing is, that all those savage races could be fun to play.

    A very elaborate attempt, though. It might catch some people who aren't paying attention to the date.

    By the end of the thread I was in tears of laughter. At the start I was like oh this guy has like a well planned out troll race here. Then I saw the DoooMMmm on prestige and jeez its hard to stifle those laughs from the gf at 6 am. And the pics just went on and on and on. Whew. Either way, nicely done and +1.

    Well, if I didn't already realize it was April Fools day, this would have been pretty neat. Also... the fact that H-Orc is missing on that first image... didn't help much. XD Oh well. Looks pretty believable other than that. Nice job putting it all together.

    I enjoyed this as well. Well done.

    I was hoping to see the dreaded "Internet Troll" added as a playable race, though, if they were going to add playable Savage Species.

    Internet Troll characteristics ...

    +4 CON
    Invulnerable to Acidic Retorts and enchantment magic
    -4 WIS, CHA set permanently to 1
    -20 on all diplomacy checks
    -4 on DCs for all enchantment spells cast, +2 on DCs for all necromancy spells, unable to cast divination spells (from spells or on items)

    Class prestige enhancements include "Fallacious Reasoner" and "Paranoid Android" - the last is only available for those selecting the Warforged race. Other class enhancements include "Obvious backstabbing", "Advanced illiteracy", and "Drama Multiplier Effect".

    Saw Half-Orc missing from screenshot (replaced with Troll), and knew this was april fools.

    Still, nice photoshopping.
