    Default DDOcast Talks 01: MOTU Open Beta

    Dungeons and Dragons Online: Menace of the Underdark is now in Open Beta! This means the NDA is off and we can openly talk about the changes coming to DDO! Join us this Saturday as we'll go over the important points for DDO's biggest update since launch! Also, this is not a regular DDOcast episode, but a special broadcast using "Google Plus Hangout on Air."



    Don't forget to circle us if you use G+!

    What topics do you want us to talk about? We've got a few in mind, including:

    • Armor Class changes
    • Spell damage amplification system & Spell Power rating
    • Combat Changes...or What does that [W] mean?!
    • New Poisons & Disease effects


    We're open to more questions and comments, feel free reply your thoughts here!

    There were comparisons to SW:Galaxy’s NGE during the closed beta. Do you feel these were warranted?

    Will changes like the caster level penalty from CE, harsher than SRD requirements for epic feats, back loading of revised PrEs, and certain class features in destinies drive people away from multi-classing?

    Will divines be less interested in healing with the spellpower system and harsher gear requirements?

    Is there any benefit to static bonuses to attack “rolls” when everything will be rounded to the nearest 5% and diminishing returns decreases what each new bonus is worth?

    Is there a reason to continue investing in AC after diminishing returns renders other defensive stats like incorporeality or dodge more effective? In addition, do you feel diminishing returns will result in tanks being less interested in item bouses like +6 deflection when +5 is easily obtainable through a spell and minor differences no longer matter?

    Our round table talks on MOTU on Saturday night was a huge hit! You can view the YouTubeVideo here: http://www.ddocast.com/2012/06/motu-roundtable/



    Dungeons and Dragons Online: Menace of the Underdark is now in Open Beta! This means the NDA is off and we can openly talk about the changes coming to DDO! With "Google Plus Hangout on Air" we went beyond our regular podcast episodes for our first impressions of DDO's largest update since launch!

    The talk lasted a little over two hours, and the group discussed topics such as the Armor Class changes, Spell Power replacing Spell Amplification, the "Hard-To-Kill" epic monster mechanic and its replacement "Haunting," what is Weapon Damage and [W], Poison & Disease changes, Druids, and of course all the new Epics features!

    Thank you Jerry (Cordovan), Jon (Littlewind), Patrick (Shamgar), and Coldin for joining Sig and I as guests! Also thanks to the great audience in our IRC chatroom!
