    So we made new dwarf skeleton monsters, complete with configurable facial hair.

    new iconic race?
    or atleast a nice cosmetic skin for the anounced dwarven battle rager iconic race?


    per the 4th Edition Monster Manual

    Bleh, keep yer stinkin 4th of me lawn!

    You may have noticed that we haven't done any new floor puzzles in the Forgotten Realms. That's because we wanted to introduce a new puzzle type just for the Realms - the mirror-and-beam puzzles that you'll first encounter in Thunderholme.

    so still flat puzzles in a 3d get up...

    now that we can take care of the big bad shadow dragon, are we finaly done with the migraine inducing purple haze and the shadowfell all together?

    please produce some original&superior Eberron content to ballance things
    out

    As much as I would LOVE some Eberron content, I think that outside of the odd quest here and there, or the Epic versions of existing content, we won't be getting much Eberron content at all. My assumption, and I could be wrong, is that their license that they renewed in 2012 was under the condition that they focus on WotC's baby, the Forgotten Realms.

    More undead? Meh.
    Another dracolich? Meh.


    Thanks for trying, I guess.

    Just watch the chest will require absolute maxed out search to find the door and open lock to unlock it. (maxed as in +20 items, full ranks, 60+ in the relevant stats and all possible enhancements)

    Then the loot level will be -10.

    I can tell the developers were clearly inspired by Skyrim with the graphics shown in the diary. But graphics aren't everything, mind you, especially if the gameplay is horribly buggy or half-done.
    Here's a riddle for you: What do you call people who play the game for only a day and apparently know everything?

    Actually, you know what would be cool / bring an insanely large amount of difficulty with it? Fighting the dracolich and both red dragons as the same time, ala the Tower of Despair raid. Make the dragons impossible to kite and have their AI switch every 10 seconds.
