I left DDO shortly before the first expansion due to RL activities... I played for 2 weeks of late and experienced both expansion's content and went from level 20-25.
Have to say I am quite surprised:
a. That Turbine would re-write the book on game expansions and not release enough NEW content to support the level range increases. Sorry, I am not going to grind epic versions of old content to level. A bit of this is OK but I was amazed how fast I chewed through the new content..
b. That population has gone so far down since I last played ( spring 2012 ).
c. Content is no where near as interesting as the older stuff ( madness saga was great ) aside from a few exceptions ( demonweb, purple worms )
My hope is that Turbine realizes that expansions+level increases need enough content to warrant the level increase not just rehashes of old content. I wonder if LOTRO is like that as well ?
How about some new armor models that are actually drops in the game and not premium purchases in the store ?
Anyway, take care all !
