Greetings DDO Players,
I am a member of the Player's Council 2014, acting completely independently from the Developers in this thread which a continuation of the thread found here:
Up front I want to make several things clear, I have no idea when Barbarian improvement will be made if ever. Sev has hinted that barbarians are on his radar, in one of the Bard or Pally improvement threads that he has made. Barbarians are not on the current NDA list.
Hopefully we can continue sorting thru and creating three or more new sample trees to improve the existing Barbarian trees, as well as develop recommendations for Barbarian class changes and possible potion solutions. Barbarian theory will be discussed in detail, including sticking close if possible to the Core 3rd edition barbarian.
As a member of the Player's Council, I am allowed to present my own personal projects and vision for the future of DDO. Should this project be about Season's Herald Druid, I would not need as much help as I do for Barbarians as I tend to be the one healing the barbarian instead of playing it.
When we are done here, there will be a permanent placement of our theories and ideas into the Player's Council Forums, and I will press the Developer to work towards quality barbarian improvements. Even if these don't not take place until after I leave the Player's Council at the end of the year, those ideas will still remain behind to inspire the Developers.
Thank you for your help and feedback, it is appreciated and a link to this thread will be included in that final report to the developers.
