    This is one of the best suggestions I have read on these forums in years! IT geeks are all about the data, and an in-game survey mechanism should be child's play to create and implement. Give ALL players the option of providing feed back, then give us the results. You could have something as simple an optional survey available at the end of every quest, asking players to rate it on a scale (1-5?), with an option to turn the survey off for all quests if they don't want to be bothered. Then we could see how players really feel about a quest, not just if they are zerging it for XP. My initial impression was that the "player council" was a means for that, but I for one, have no idea who these folks are, what they are being asked, or what they are saying.

    Any normal company has a customer feedback form. Turbine may not have anyone to read the results, however.

    There seems to still be some confusion (due to DDO Wiki not being updated in the under development page).
    The level cap is NOT being increased this December.

    Sometime in 2015 would be likely but not guaranteed as per the above quote.

    I do hope that Anauroch gets done at the end of 2015 or in 2016. That area would build on the Netherese story arc and would be a welcome addition to the Forgotten Realms content.

    I haven't tried the video game, but am excited the module is coming to DDO!

    or add "Temple of Elemental Evil" to one of the planescaller option. technically, Greyhawk isn't just a plane but couldn't the planescaller just be a supergenius who spent too much time hanging out near the Demonweb portal in Khyber? and when pressed about it, just have him say "No time to explain..." and start the quest.

    Putting a door to TOEE in the Hall of Heroes would set the precedent for further campaign worlds being added to DDO like Ravenloft ('The Demiplane of Dread'), Spelljammers, Planescape, etc. with the Hall of Heroes as the Hub to the Planes. Making the entrance to Greyhawk an option from the Shavarath Planescaller in The Tower of the Twelve is also a possibility, but just not as good as the others. Whatever the devs decide to do for TOEE, just don't put the quest in the Forgotten Realms!

    TOEE=goodness
    Xoriat=manure


    Would have preferred TOEE and Anauroch. Heart of madness I will not buy.

    Xoriat really? I think you have the data wrong. They are probably the least favorite quests, and only run for xp/min on the ones you can invis zerg.

    I always skip them unless I really need xp at those levels.

    Xoriat, meh. Not that exciting to me.

    ToEE... the potential is there, but I really hope its not another time sink like HH. I would much rather see it broken up into a few quests rather than a whole bunch of optionals.

    You saying yourself and some of your freinds are to blame for us getting "heart of madness" instead of anauroch?

    No I would have railed against that as well but if it was a choice between any realms content and that I would choose heart of madness and just not play it. Yes I hate the realms that much if the game had started there I wouldn't have played it.

    So even though you would not play heart of madness you would have pushed for that over content others would enjoy just to be spiteful.

    Gotcha.

    To each their own I guess.

    Thanks for the update, and my thoughts are:
    1) More Xoriat themed quests? Boooo! That's really disheartening I hate the Xoriat themed stuff and avoid them all as best I can.
    2) The Eveningstar quest sounds cool, and I'm looking forward to checking it out.
    3) Temple of Elemental Evil?!?!?!?! That is AWESOME!!!! Please go straight to update 25 and skip update 24 if you can.

    Some additional info:

    ~ The Xoriat dungeons are all new content.

    ~ The Temple of Elemental Evil, as a classic dungeon set in another world, with be accessed magically and directly. The epic version will be level 30, and the heroic version will start at level 7 as the original was level 1-8.

    ~ We won't be creating the villages as part of the Temple of Elemental Evil. Yes, it makes us sad as well. Our estimates of the time it would take to run that pre-content was very low, and the development time estimates were so high we didn't feel that the additional play experience would be worth pushing the update out by months.

    Instead players will get right to the heart of the adventure.

    ~ The Temple is very large, and we want players to have a reason to explore it even on subsequent runs. We want to find a fun system to reward exploring the temple rather than just running the most efficient path to finish the quests, and plan on having some rewarding optional objectives that randomly spawn and give out good XP and treasure.

    Thank you for the additional information on these updates. I'm glad that TOEE will be in Greyhawk, with the appropriate lore, even if there is nothing around the Temple. DDO should advertise the TOEE adventure pack like a mini-paid expansion: "Greyhawk comes to Dungeons and Dragons Online!" I'm just happy that everything will be lore appropriate.

    If more Greyhawk content is added in the future, I hope that the devs take the time to create the Village of Hommlet as the beginning area for a small Greyhawk world and otherwise make an accurate Greyhawk section of the game.
