    Default The 2014 DDO Awards

    In the spirit of the Academy Awards, I thought it would be fun to create a thread where the community could vote for their favorite things about DDO from 2014. Here’s how it will work: I came up with a few categories, and you write in your vote for your one favorite thing from last year for each. This means anything from update 21, 22, 23 and 24, and any associated patches. If you need to refresh your memory, you can peruse the release notes here https://www.ddo.com/forums/forumdisp...s-Known-Issues. Please vote only for ONE item per category, and the categories are:

    1. Best Quest
    2. Best Enhancement Tree
    3. Best Loot
    4. Best Game Feature
    5. Best Store Item

    Before anyone jumps in and votes for lag, or this or that bug, please don’t. There are plenty of threads to voice your complaints about those things. This is supposed to be about what we LIKED from last year.

    In a couple of weeks I’ll tally up the votes, and we’ll find out what the winners are.

    Great idea and thread.

    Best quest: Ruins of thunderholme wilderness area (but I don't have haunted halls, I'd vote that)
    Best enhancement tree: Harper agent
    Best loot: Epic litany of the dead
    Best game feature: Champions
    Best store item: Ruins of thunderholme adventure pack
    Social Justice W...arlock (5e toon)
    OkarisRage, big fat purple wolf (because no need to be a bear with the new epic defensive fighting feat-getting past lives of druid and pdk so my artificer is better <3)

    Best quest: HH (but honorable mentions go to WgU (for the Panorama) and Into the flesh (for the quest + fashion show).
    Best enhancement tree: Harper, honorable mentions go to Crusader, Vanguard, Swashbuckler.
    Best loot: basically not loot, but Thunderforged weapons. If pure loot only, Boots of Propulsion.
    Best game feature: The character generation.
    Best store item: Bank Slots (the more the better).

    Thanks for the reply but the idea is to limit this to what came out in 2014.

    1. I haven't played a lot of the quests that were released in those updates, so I'll say nothing here.
    2. I'm going to say Swashbuckler even though it seems overpowered to me, because of how hilarious it is that when an opponent misses you, you can apparently say something so scathing that it physically hurts them, and sometimes trip them too. Visualizing it makes it seem so comical.
    3. The Necklace of Mystic Eidolons, because your shadow rising up to fight for you is inherently cool.
    4. The ballistae that fire at you. Why wouldn't the enemy make use of these very large weapons when adventurers come to kill them?
    5. The Mirror of Glamering I suppose, it's making a lot of people happy.

    1. Deathwyrm because it's the closest they've come to recreating the great VON and Titan pre-raid/raid mechanics including the ability to start it, go IP and not get locked out until the final battle.
    2. Spellsinger (if only because it reflects a lot of things I and others asked for, compared to what they were going to leave it at in the first look on the PC).
    3. Mine is Loot that should have been: Epic Deathnips and other Tome page weapons that they should have put in eOrchard but did not "because of thunderforged weapons" that suck for my Dwarf and every other build that would use one of those weapons. Doesn't count? Okay Deific Diadem because I have a build that will use all three stats for DC's
    4. I want to say something besides mirror of glamouring like "removal of BB" or "inclusion of Raid Saga's" or "LFM improvements" but sadly the ability to finally make a character look somewhat how I want it to for the first time in a nearly 9 year old game is the best feature they added this year. I would say "XP ransack" (because it totally got rid of Bell sitting and Impossible demands buggouts as the go to method of Epic Destiny advancement. But that was last year...
    5. Store feature, well if it's the best game feature they added it must also be the best store feature.

    Good luck 2015 Player council, I hope the "best of 2015" best new feature is not a cosmetic...

    Thread OP, great idea and timing

    PS honorable mentions:
    1. Haunted Halls yep it's that good translating a D&D module, why? because ***'s just a richer experience than hacking down a hallway.
    2. Vanguard it's actually fun being S&B with this tree... BTW the Abundant Step Shield charge? This guys suggestion...
    3. HH loot and upgrade mechanic
    4. Champions for about 2 days before people who are bad at DDO but insist on playing Elite got the balls nerfed off them
    5. Weapon Auras are neat and cheap, let the person who priced them go through the entire store.

    *laughs* to refesh our memory you give them Known Issues? Sounds more like you want Razzies.

    https://www.ddo.com/en/game/release-notes is the actual link for that stuff. Aka "Release Notes" that is selectable under the "Content" drop down menu at the top of the page.

    Fair enough. It was just because of that link I didn't know how serious of answers you were really wanting or not. Best of luck to your polls.

    Default Cool

    1. Best Quest-Haunted Halls
    2. Best Enhancement Tree-Vanguard
    3. Best Loot-The Hunters Slayer. Seriously, such a fantastic greatsword. Works quite well on a large range of mobs.
    4. Best Game Feature-The new ship buff system
    5. Best Store Item-for me, it's a tie between the slayer pots and guild renown elixirs.
