    Personally? Disappointed. Not entirely surprised though.
    While Eberron is my favourite setting, it is rather unusual with its views on alignment, race, magic etc and so rather "niche". I suppose that its only logical that they try to capitalise on the larger fanbases of Forgotten Realms and other more "generic fantasy" settings that more people will be comfortable with.

    There is a vast amount more content available in Eberron should they decide to use it. Xen'drik is a mostly unexplored frontier land, but there are several other continents, and many other nations and power groups with potential plot.

    There aren't really any in Eberron. Its one of the things I like about the setting. For people who believe in one of the actual gods (Sovereign Host + Dark Six) it is a matter of . . . faith.
    Unlike in some of the other settings (not just FR) where any yahoo with a planar travel spell can turn up and start poking their god.

    I'm very disappointed by this.

    The Eberron setting has a lot to offer and there are still plotlines in the current game that are not nearly done like Amrath. I'd much prefer they stay in Eberron and explore that setting, like taking us to Sharn since we already have that entire storyline with the Sharn syndicate. Or maybe exploring more deeply on the great houses with their powers and politics. The silver flame and the dark six actually have quite a few quests in the game, let's add quest series for other beliefs and religions. What about the million other settings, plots, regions and stories in Eberron?

    I for one am happy to see this.
    Nothing worse for me personally than a quest mechanic that absolutely prevents me from completing the quest without another player.


    To Dandonk and Memnir, It does not say running an Elite quest solo will be a walkover for a 28pt first lifer with harbor gear.

    If I want to run a quest on elite, I may need to have a capped completionist with 3x lives in every class, hand picked items for that quest in every slot, maxed Destinies, and stacks of Silver Flame pots and Mnemonic pots. If I don't have all of that, there are other difficulties I can run at to complete the quest. The important part to me is that I can complete it without another player.

    Not a surprise. They said the same thing shortly after MOTU released.

    Sad though.

    No new Eberron content for a while? While that is upsetting, it's ok. While the Devs are looking the other way, Dannel's Wrath will rise up and claim Stormreach in the name of Cyre!

    They couldnt figure out how to balance quests for parties properly and decided its WAI. They meant to make questing anti social. What else are they going to do make DDO less like Dungeons & Dragons? I wish they would just go ahead and rename DDO to WOW.

    Horribly offensive? No, it's not nearly serious enough to be horribly offensive. Is it horribly ignorant of both Eberron and the Forgotten Realms? Oh my, yes it is. Never read a D&D novel? And that's how you're forming your opinion? You know there were D&D games before the novels, and that the novels are mostly ****, right? At no point should the novels be informing any thoughts on DDO from either side of the fence. No, seriously, that' some brutally ignorant ignorance.

    As for interventionist deities being unique to FR, let me introduce you first to Greyhwk, where a demigod (Iuz) runs one of the nations, and another power pops in all the time to check on things (St. Cuthbert), and to introduce you to (wait for it). . . duh dun duh!

    GREEK MYTHOLOGY.

    You have absolutely no clue about that which you speak.
    An overly angry/ sarcastic Dungeons & Dragons nerd... you must be a devil with the ladies.

    I have read ZERO D&D books. I have never been in a campaign or played PnP or seen PnP played (I would have if the opportunity presented itself, but it did not so I ventured into sports instead). Does that mean my argument is less valid than yours? Does that mean the gentleman/ woman of whom you are insulting has less argument than you do because that person does not know about the typo on page 341 second paragraph third sentence 4th word in Book 2 of the Whatever Chronicles?

    I thought the beauty of Dungeons & Dragons (besides all the stallions who play it, yours truly included Bazinga!) was that for each person the story gave just enough for your imagination to take over and make the game your own; you can either go into a quest and do what you're told for honor and glory or you can take a step back and ask why the Silver Flame is having you murder other cultists; While a lot of this does not make it to the online game for many reasons people still have different approaches to this game (zerg, flower sniff, RP, stand at AH and check prices, PvP....) and none of them are wrong (with the exception of PvP... it's WRONG!). Who are you to tell someone they don't know what they're talking about? Why do people get annoyed when I ask why Luke Skywalker and the Jedis don't fight Klingons? Who cares? Why can't I name one NHL team on demand? Who cares! It's all made up stuff anyway! I LOVED Schyndysussudiolyryn, without knowing ANYTHING about drow other than for having fewer CON than other races if you get a couple blademasters they can hurt you quick! I read the House Avithoul/ Dun'robar/ Deepspace 9 stuff with great interest, and I probably have the COMPLETE wrong idea of the game as I have none of the backstory, but I enjoyed it so there ya go.

    As to OP, this saddens me, it makes it sound like in order to get new content where all the new players are you are gonna have to shell out $$$ for Forgotten Realms, and though I like it out there I like Eberron more and would hate to see that area dry up. I'm all for more stuff in FR, maybe some lowbie quests out there to make it more accessible to more people, but I am doubting that's gonna happen. More likely it will be only epic stuff, which I don't care about in the slightest as I'm still 10-11 lives from where I am gonna do epic, and I can't be the only one.

    To those who quit reading when I asked the Star Wars/ Star Trek stuff, I've already been yelled at for it, but it makes sense. Why when they are going to Tattooine or whatever they don't run into the Enterprise and that guy with the bald head and black peacock hairdo who cooks weird stuff on Babylon is there cause they picked him up as a slave? Why CAN'T they all meet up? Nintendo does it with Super Smash Bros., and people (not me, but people) like that?!

    OK I'm done. Thanks for reading

    It is consistency and the feeling of playing in a homogeneous world.
    Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly and Babylon 5 for example are all very different settings. Not just in terms of how they are portrayed and the type of stories that happen there, but even some of the ways that the world works.

    Mixing things up is fine for speculative "what if" stories, but not for the telling of stories within a world, any more than characters in the Lord of the Rings books making direct references to the real world would be. It breaks the immersion that is part of the enjoyment of a story.

    As you say, different people have different preferences.

    As to the post that you quoted, Danzig was just being a little overly snarky about a post from someone claiming that they hadn't picked up on any of the differences between Eberron and Forgotten Realms. While that was bound to get a response from the fans of either setting, it also indicates a certain lack of attention to the quests and even the graphics of the game.

    I know next to nothing about Greyhawk, so the only thing your comment made me wonder is "Do they have comfy chairs?"

    It would not surprise me if there was a way to do it, but the two rooms right before the red-named skeleton fight seemed to need someone to stand still for a couple minutes in two different areas. I suppose if you have a hireling that can fend off the spawns by himself long enough for it to finish that could work, but it is quite obviously more solo friendly now - to the point where it now only requires enough player power, not some sneaky hireling (or other) based workaround just to get it to progress.

    Scarlet Brotherhood

    They are Lawful Evil Monks that follow Nerull and Bralm.

    Not a group to be trifled with.

    My Main, a Cleric of St. Cuthbert, has ulterior motives to encounter them.

    Dinosaur. Riding. Halfling. Barbarians.

    That is all.
