    Default Note however...

    Those are NOT the DnD 3.5 rules upon which DDO is based (ignoring epics which are a whole different monster entirely) - levels 1-20 (without the enhancements) are based on 3.5.
    The 3.5 rules can be found here http://www.d20srd.org/

    Why else would they create a rule set?

    As far as terrible goes, if that's what is profitable, that's what going to be made and sold.

    Pathfinder is like 3.5 but some say better. They call it 3.75.

    There are tons of free file links to d20 pdf files, but to have them without the books is not legal. Just google it. The d20 rule sets WoC put out are I think for creating stuff and ok to download. It is open source and free. You can get the books n used on amazon or ebay for under $20 usedbif you are patient. I did. I read them and like the art but have yet to group at the local hobby shop. No time.

    Your lack of healing amp not my problem. Please buy and use your own remove curse pots in combat, so I don't waste mana. Not my job.

    I notice they've got quotes from Dragonlance books, and a picture of Takhisis on the web page. I guess that means they're bringing back the Dragonlance setting? It was basically ignored in both 3.x and 4e of the game. The original creators updated it to 3.0, but it was never pushed into 3.5, nor 4.

    Looks like it's closer to 3.x than 4, which is a good thing.
    It was the night before Hogswatch....

    I continue to find it strange after all these years that you don't consider the game's official forums part of the game's social network.

    Tiamat... not Takhisis.

    Same Dragon, Wrong Name...
    Dragonlance IP is muddled enough that Weiss & Hickman can't write/edit anything without Hasbro consent... but the reverse is also true, Hasbro/Wotc cannot write anything about Dragonlance withouth Weiss and Hickman consent. That's usually the case with most of the IPs from the 80s and early 90s.

    I don't expect Dragonlance to make a come back... I suspect that WoTC is going to concentrate on Eberron and Faerun, and all the other settings are going to be left to rot. ( unless there's a really good reason to bring one back from beyond the grave )
    On G-Land : Flavilandile, Blacklock, Yaelle, Millishande, Larilandile, Gildalinde, Tenalafel, and many other...

    Lol, for feats look at player's handbook.
    Then, why bother with releasing anything including higher levels, without as crucial feature.

    Also:
    Finger of Death

    You send negative energy coursing through a creature that you can seen within range causing it searing pain. The target must make a Constitution saving throw. It takes 7d8+30 necrotic damage on a failed save, or half as much on a succesful one.
    A humanoid killed by this spell rises at the start of your next turn as a zombie that is permanently under your command following your verbal orders to the best of its ability.
    More like finger of failure.

    After a quick glance, that's my first impression, and my opinion, as well.

    Never really like pathfinder and 3.5 is actually my 4th choice for pnp currently I prefer the new version of hackmaster(basic is available for free) then 1st ed AD&D followed by 2nd ed.

    This, not everyone uses twitter,etc. it can't take to much manpower to post this stuff on the forums as well.

    Which has nothing to do with what the op posted. Also Pathfinder was an excuse for a thIrd party to sell 60 dollar errata document

    Next has good rules and4e was inspired but suffered from everyone pulling a "this new thing it is bad" because people don't realize that mechanics have no bearing on roleplaying.
