    Default Update 29 Predictions

    What are your update 29 predictions? It's never too early to speculate.

    I predict flying skateboards.

    Our characters will have more commoner levels than normal class levels.

    EDs will have more levels.

    Melees will deal 2k damage on hit, 30k on crit.

    Casters will fart rainbows of pure awesomness dealing 100k-200k damage to mobs in entire room, and 4 rooms away.

    Level 40+ quests will be about cleaning Drizzt's boots (boot polish is guarded by CR100 kobolds equipped with +20 epic vorpals and casting wail, implosion and god know what else)Q, or quest about running arround errands for Elnoobstrel, like bring this love letter to ana, then come back with reply (need to defeat 666 CR 120 skeletons with +30 uberweapon of absolute awesomness to get ink quil and paper for her).

    +10 tomes will drop like candy, while +15 tomes will be in DDO Store.
    Past lifes and completionist toons will also be on sale, so noone can cry that they must play the game to be on equal footing with old vets.

    Quests will drop +30 stats items, +20 DCs items, +500HP items etc. Weapons will be +20, all crit 2-20 X10, all weapon enhancements will be tenfold or twenty fold of current (40d6 damage holy) etc.

    Maximum atainable DCs will be arround 200, DCs needed to land instakills or hold with decent succes rate will be arround 250 (still using d20), players will have 10k HP, trash mobs will have million HP, bosses billion.
    Maximum attainable AC will be arround 400, to hit bonus of all mobs will be at least +666, mobs will have new property "PRR bybass rating", so PRR won't work, and damage will be high enough for divines to be hjealing only, to appease self sufficiency haters, and bring holy trinity they desire.


    Fortunately, judging on update speed, U19 is expansion, U20-21 are new quest packs, U22 is revamped old pack, U23 is new expansion demo U24 is new expansion(arround august-october 2014), U25-26 are new quest packs, U27 is revamped old pack, U28 is new expansion demo and U29 is next new expansion (arround august-december 2015)

    All randomly generated items will have been removed from the game by Update 24 and replaced with named items with only randomly generated effects. By Update 29, all named items will turn into items with minimum levels and the effects on items will randomly generate then reset every 6 seconds.

    - Equipping a helmet will wipe all Epic Destinies.
    - Characters with 3 classes won't be able to climb ladders. TR as a workaround.
    - A new quest mechanic breaks something in Abbot.
    - Summoning a creature companion may cause you to teleport to a random location.
    - Key to Eveningstar takes you to the Airship hall.
    - Mushrooms in the Red Fens are repositioned, this causes ADQ flagging to be incomplete-able.
    - Using Flesh Render Guards clicky will cause your greensteel items to be deleted.
    - Drinking a potion of moderate repair will subtract 4 DDO points from your account.

    *New and exciting bugs.

    1. A funky bug when you swap any gear that effect UMD there is some lag issues

    2. A funky bug when you leave the guild ship a window comes up asking "where do you want to go" even though you have already left.

    3. A funky bug where LFM's left up when logging out become "phantom" for all to see until person logs back in OR server is reset.

    4. "Failure to submit all support requests"

    Some well known large company will release a game that purports to be the be-all end-all of all Dungeons and Dragons games, and several DOOM threads will immediately ensue in the DDO discussion forums. Said game will require $100US subscription fee per month (you can use your equity in your home to purchase a lifetime subscription), require 100GB of RAM and 25TB hard disk space, 3D holographic display and neural interface. It'll end up looking and feeling like an old ATARI 2600 Yars Revenge (google it) and will be full of bugs and fail miserably.

    I actually know the answer to this, but it'll cost you 5,000 astral shards to find out.

    This sounds scarily likely.

    There will be an Adults Only server, which will be the only place to buy Succubus pets and cosmetic underwear.

    Every item in game will not only now Bind to Character, it will bind to your equipment slot once equipped. The only removal will be a DDO Store elixir you can buy in update 30.

    Now now, it will be announced by the devs that it does drop in-game. Whether anyone has actually received one in-game will be the source of Urban Legends of course...

    Honestly I will be impressed if they are around that long at this rate. A lot of the old guard is gone and of those that remain fewer and fewer are taking the time / have the patience to train up the Newbs.

    It seems to be headed into a circle where the vets leave and get replaced by new players who stick for a while but leave and get replaced but the interval between being a newb and leaving is getting shorter and shorter.

    By update 29, if they are around still, I am willing to bet you will be able to create an epic character right out of the box. They already have DM stones that will level you from 1 to 20 so it's just a matter of time before those hit the store and with a Zynga guy running the "monetization" side of the show you just gotta know he's gonna drive the bus right into the ground at full tilt.

    That's a really good idea.

    A store pot that has about 50 charges and will auto deduct points to recharge back to 50 charges. Like mana or HP.

    So, we don't have to keep rebuying from ddo store ever.

    I will post your suggestion in the suggestions section.

    This seems like an eerily accurate prediction.
