Myself and 4 others are thinking of trying out DDO. What we're looking for his a game that actually utilises each class, meaning rogues are useful and can disarm traps etc, each class does actually have a use and isn't just a filler role. We're PnP players but are now separated by a large distance, so look for an alternative.
So a couple of questions.
I've had a read and see that there are a certain amount of quests that are accessible for free players and that doing the quests can give favour which you then can use to obtain Turbine Points. The Turbine Points are then used to purchase adventure packs. Can anyone direct me to a good outline of this system, as in conversion between favour and turbine points? Can you gain favour from one quest over and over again or is it a one time gain?
What is the maximum size of a group as there are 5 of us?
Some of us can't afford much currently hence looking for a free option. So we're looking for something that will give us the opportunity to have some fun and enjoy each others company. While doing that we just don't want to start playing and then suddenly run up against a road block in regards to access. While I say that I realise the game cannot continue with out money and that is something that we may eventually put towards the game if there's a good starting structure and environment to start from.
Thanks to anyone that replies to this. Happy to answer any questions if this would help with answers.
