    Default Update 23 First Look

    UPDATE: Lamannia is open for our first early preview of Update 23! However, our original plan to offer a preview of the raid ran into a technical snag (the system we use to teleport groups into the raid is having an issue), so instead we will be offering an early preview of the Epic Orchard of the Macabre and Epic versions of Desecrated Temple of Vol, Ghosts of Perdition, and Inferno of the Damned! We will still have an event today from 4:00 - 7:00 PM Eastern (-4 GMT), so stop on by and say hello!

    NOTE: The Epic Quest-giver NPCs for the Orchard quests are not yet in, but you can speak to the Heroic NPCs and you will be able to enter the quests on Epic from the Orchard.

    ###

    Howdy everyone!

    We're planning to update Lamannia this coming Thursday, August 21st, then open it to the public!

    With this update, we're planning a couple Dev events in order to get some specific feedback.

    The first of these events will be held between 4:00 - 7:00 PM Eastern (-4 GMT) on Thursday, August 21st. During this time, several devs will be online to gather and teleport groups into the new U23 Raid!

    The second event will be less structured. It will be held throughout the work day for us on Friday (somewhere between 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM Eastern, -4 GMT) and will consist of developers creating LFMs for the new raid, then transporting groups into the raid once the LFM is full.

    Release notes and Known issues will be made available on Thursday as well.

    See you there!

    I'll be honest, I'm really nervous that the loot will be underwhelming. There's great potential with orchard loot - please don't screw this up.

    Hopefully some of our feedback was taken into consideration. If the changes are as listed, the pally "pass" will be an epic failure. The evasion and 2x shield modifier to mrr are also bad news.

    Can we please get a Mask of the Abbot item? It's just too cool looking for it not to be in the loot table. Even if it's just a cosmetic item!

    If this pack won't have LOT of good loot it will be another fail.
    Raid should have at least 10 item (or even more), each quest 3 named and litany 3x bosses plus all the tapestry, shield and tome choice.

    Old pack....lot of loot... new pack...2 item x raid and few useless x quest.

    Oh, and please no raid timer bypass till a new raid is been released.

    You can usually pick up all the new loot in the dojo. Surely someone can post that if the devs don't.

    Woah, wait, what? The Vanguard tree is coming out in U23? I thought it was just the armor changes, KotC and Defender revamps, and the epicification of Necro IV?

    From what I understand:

    * Armor Pass (including MRR) - which is a tall order since it (allegedly) affects mob to hit, revamp of existing AC systems and introduction of a new additional one (MRR)
    * Epic Orchard - which sounds to be roughly similar in proportion to epic Gianthold (epic versions of existing quests, epic version of a wilderness area and new (hopefully endgame) raid pitting players against Vol.
    * probably some other, additional minor changes and/or fixes.

    That'd make U23 about the same size and in line with game updates such as U17. Personally I'd think it a mistake to also add new trees and would rather have them spend the time/effort on working out whatever kinks and bugs we'll find once the raid goes life and focus on reviewing/balancing the AC/MRR changes for a while before moving on to the next thing.

    According to Wiki there will be a new area desert as well.. not holding my breath though.
    Update 23

    Status: Unreleased
    Release Date: Unknown (Possibly September)
    Further Notes:
    The third update of the year will take you to Anauroch, the not-so-barren desert to the north of Cormyr. You will have the chance to battle the armies of Netheril and challenge a new enemy – the enigmatic Phaerimm: DDO Forums

    Anauroch was a Forgotten Realms campaign supplement written by Ed Greenwood.

    The Phaerimm (also called thornbacks and magic-grubs) are a fictional species or creatures in the Forgotten Realms setting, in the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game. They are malevolent and highly intelligent creatures who are natural spellcasters]]

    The ingame Adventure Compendium has shown the quest 'It Came from the Desert' since Update 21.

    maybe, i was under the impression we were getting vanguard with all the armour changes. there was some concern over useful stuff being taken out of the defensive trees that gave S&B some damage, the reply was wait till you see what we put in vanguard:

    that's where i got my impression from. sure it ain't fact, but it would be kinda sucky for S&B DPS to get worse with this update, so including vanguard would make a lot of sense (and is probably why they did minimal changes to the existing defensive trees).

    anyway, we should find out tomorrow, so i'm waiting with baited breath
