    Default Why there's no raid in the expansion

    It's really this simple . . . raid loot cannot be sold on the shard-exchange.

    Why make stuff that can't be sold for a 30% Turbine profit?

    Nah, I heard its cause we are getting to new FREE endgame raids that are stand alone and don't require a flagging mechanic, so it's like Tempest Spine, only one raid is lvl 25 and the other lvl 28.

    Wouldn't it be nice if we got something like this......

    Wouldn't it actually result in a lot of good will towards Turbine.......

    But if there's no raid how are they going to sell lvl 28 augments in the store if they can't make raid loot a required ingredient?


    Seems to me they get their pound of flesh from raids. The lack of a raid really makes no sense to me at all.

    I would hazard a guess that it just isn't ready to be released yet, and they're working on it.
    Maybe we'll get lucky and there will be a couple!

    Personally, I can see Turbine biting off a lot of stuff coming up and it's no surprise to me that some content might end up being pushed back an update or two.

    Turbine faced the problem of not being able to complete their raid content in time to release with their expansion in LotRO. So they simply said to their players "Sorry, it's not done, but when it is you will get it." In Menace of the Underdark the Lolth raid wasn't really finished (Nor was the second one that was promised but then vaporized, but that is another issue.....), and so for quite awhile we simply had it disabled.

    I am not going to start making wild guesses about why there is no raid in the new expansion. But it is certainly 'as intended' by Turbine, not to be apologized away as some fateful mixup.

    I'll hazard a guess and it is real simple.

    Lack of time.

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

    Default Perhaps...

    Since they never delivered on the second MotU raid, they figured it would be unfair to include one in this years expansion.

    No worries...

    I'm sure they'll have one almost done and ready to be closed on delivery of next years expansion.

    There is no raid in my opinion because its not an expansion. It's two quest packs with a bunch of extra, mostly junk thrown in. The best part is if you wanna play the new expansion you have to buy the first expansion to get to the area where the second expansion is.

    Default new raid released, new raid bugged, close new raid. repeat

    they want to save some OT on the interns, so no new raid, it would jsut be busted anyway

    That's not so. Getting to Eveningstar is Completely F2P.
    Because DDO content is created by hand, some issues cannot be fixed with a global change. We must fix these issues one-by-one by hand with the help of bug reports. This includes:

    You can put any level augment in any matching color slot including a lvl 24 augment in a lvl 1 item...it just raises the ml of that item to 24. Just FYI.
