    The PC party composition looks like a gimpy divine caster not casting blade barrier, implosion, nor destruction (most likely a low DC favored soul since I do not see a positive energy aura; but no Blade Barrier?!). A druid, an arcane caster (most likely a wizard since they were no elemental savant hints on the hands) and judging by the spells he casted, i.e. meteor shower, prismatic spray, delay blast fireball, lightning bolt, wail of the banshee, magic missile; there are no new arcane spells. The wizard was also not a Pale master with a pretty low spell penetration, low DC wizard since I did not see any crowd control or instant kill spells working (okay, may be one finger of death went off on a vine thrasher)... and blue spell resistance auras showing up a lot... and I mean *A LOT*.

    Also, they were not casting any damage over time spells? No DOTS?!?

    I saw the druid was casting some fire aura (regenerate?) spell, and also Flame Blade on his scimitars. Also shape shifting into wolf, winter wolf, fire elemental and water elemental.
    Did not see any high level druid spells like Earthquake, Creeping Doom, Call Lightning, Call Lightning Storm or Storm of Vengeance. A melee druid perhaps?

    The last member was most likely a monk outfit wearing barbarian sometimes holding the Epic Sword of Shadows, and sometimes duo wielding some khopesh.

    Also, the drows they fought sometimes were fighting with bare hands... the animations did not look like monk kung fu animations at all. Were they using handwraps?... if they were ranged, they seemed to throw invisible darts or bolts.

    It's totally true, I have a reliable source. You better reroll now.

    They need to make the Hand Crossbows firing more apparent.

    Either make that a different color as in Lloth's color purple or something. Also, why were they firing in melee range?

    Or it will be just like the original Obscuring Mist .. hopefully with automatic sneak attacks too.

    I think it's already been asked. but do we as PC's get to become werewolves if we get the curse when fighting them?

    the good: dragon looked sweet, drow looked cool and love the random monster features. descisions with npc's having an effect with something in the game is real nice option and long overdo.

    the bad: agree with die on the monsters looking alot like what we already have, and the werewolves just looking like wolves. shouldnt they look like half man half wolf. kind of like something from the underworld movies.

    all and all still very excited about the new update and am glad i bought my expansion order.

    May be those were kobolds but with CR20+ stats?

    You forgot the mimic which is kinda of new outside of the Reign of Madness chain.

    Also, did you see those hags? Those are different from the Sora Kora sister hags from the Attack on Stormreach chain which was just one boss monster at the end of the chain and did not really fight too much in that chain.

    Over there at Faerun, they seemed to engage in battle a lot more; and seemed to be able to read minds (mind control? know your next move?) and go transparent (need ghost touch or true seeing or another new mechanic?)

    I know, i may have come off alittle hard on are hard working Dev's. But 20+ cr kobold or not me no likey.

    i know there is no way too get away from all the monsters that we see already nor do i want too .

    But i was let down alittle i think in LOLTHS realm we could have used so many diffrent monsters even if it were all jsut spiders ,

    IMO would have been better than kobolds. 20+ or not. But im holding out hope that they are not showing us the real mosnters so we can be suprised,

    I thought those wolves were just regular wolves. As of now, no one mentioned werewolves specifically, just hints that it might be present in the expansion (e.g. the campers try to dine on the adventurers).

    Anyway, visuals aside am I the only one who thought immediately of the NWN2 Mask of the Betrayer story when the preview mentioned the hags who read dreams? A bit like a recycled plot element, what were the coven of hags called again?

    1. Kobolds are not Eberron specific by any means.

    2. You really expected all new monsters? Most monsters in DDO right now are stuff found in other settings too.

    3. Yes you did.

    4. There is ONE place you can fight these right now.

    Also, mimics, dryads, hags, werewolves.

    Right, but you also have no idea whether these won't be there. They said specifically not all the animations were done on the green dragon yet, so its quite possible a lot of other new monsters weren't ready for show.
