    XP out there is amazing...I made over 160K XP out there in slightly under an hour. Got all explorers and all rares and a bunch of slayers. Arguably faster XP than Rusted blades (At least until you get all Rare and Explorers and the first few tiers of slayers).

    On a scale of 1-10 I would rate Demon Web as a 7. Just a difficult to get around in until I printed the map and colored in the "elevator" islands.
    I would rate the Underdark much lower. Worse than Gianthold, Sands and Kings Forrest by far.

    I love the demonweb... I love all explorer areas when leveling. I love the feeling of entering a new one for the first time, with all that glorious explorer and early slayer exp in front of me.

    Lloth's voice-over work is excellent too.

    Underdark and Restless Isles are the only two explorer areas I'm not super fond of.

    Demonweb tiles are pretty generic, but it isn't that bad on an explorer area. You can also drop down into the void for a chance of spawning near Reclaiming the Rift's entrance.
    Restless isles underground maps are absolutely generic. The open air zones are pretty cool, but all those underground maps and navigating the area grow tiresome fast.
    I like Underdark though. I like the real 3D feel to it, I like the sprawling, towering ledges, I like those distinctive touches put into so many segments of it: dragon's nest - and getting there, witch's hut, stone garden, spider's breeding zone, necromancer area, devil's portal, sleeping gas garden, drow posts alongside the path to Sschirlindynn (spelling?) portal, or that "oh snap" moment when purple worms first burst out of the ground... it's totally the opposite to demonweb, in which all tiles pretty much are the same. It's not perfect. There are many mobs which aren't that much fun to fight, like animated armors or perhaps too many elementals. Some parts of the map have confusing paths and do look pretty similar to one another.

    The demonweb is Lolths domain. It's supposed to be confusing and change. I have the pnp module. Fantastic how DDO have done it.
    Kings forest is just the best explorer area in the game bar none. You can go Deer or even squirrel hunting. On one of my first visits, me and my friend spent over an hour trying to escort a lost villager home. D+D at its best.
    Schrydalin captures the feel of the Underdark remarkably well. Imho more confusing than demonweb.
    All of the Motu expansion questwise is d+d unlike large parts of eberron.

    These are Epic level area's what do you want signs to the quest like bargain bazaar in searing heights :-)

    The voice overs are just brilliant, all i can say to people who don't like them is "Have you never played with a decent DM". I recently had 2 new player's in my pnp game who were amazed when i actually turned around to talk to 'my guards'.

    Just awestruck, wether it be a Dragon flying overhead Stormreach, that glowing character who just zoomed in'n'out of the Pub, or that i can drink a Beholder under the table and best of all rescuing Damsels in distress.
