    10th Anniversary Livestream!

    I will be hosting a 12-hour livestream from 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM Eastern on Twitch.tv/DDOstream on Friday, February 26th! The livestream will feature interviews with developers and other DDO team members past and present, in-game events and contests, and a look at the history of DDO over the past ten years. This will also be broadcast to YouTube Gaming at youtube.com/dungeonsanddragons/live.



    Tentative Server Schedule:

    9:00 AM - 10:15 AM Argonnessen
    10:15 AM - 11:30 AM Cannith
    11:30 AM - 12:45 PM Ghallanda
    12:45 PM - 1:15 PM Lunch Break
    2:00 PM - 3:15 PM Khyber

    7:00 PM - 8:15 PM Wayfinder
    8:15PM - 9:00 PM ??? (I'm sure the schedule won't be this strict)

    There will also be breaks, interviews, audio, historical documentation, and a bunch of other stuff happening, so I won't be able to do things on each server for the entire time. In reality, I will also be on throughout the weekend, and will make sure to hit all the servers at various times of the day.

    ALL Limited Time items are back:

    Finally, we are expecting to debut Update 30 on Monday, February 29th!

    Default Happy Birthday 10th DDO

    Happy birthday DDO! I've been with you the whole 10 years! Which is why it's sad to say that nothing is being given away to every player like in past years . i may have to be out of town for the events so will probably miss out on everything. Sadly I remember in past years when we all got a little something in our stocking. Guess those days are gone.

    Every character will be getting something when they log in post Update 30, for as long as the event is active (currently tentatively through at least March.)

    We also have special DDO Store stuff, but I'll leave those discounts for the Store sales folks to announce during their regularly-scheduled time (then probably add it to the OP.)

    Default Happy birthday DDO

    Happy birthday DDO! It's nice to see all the festivals back at the same time

    Just one thing though, [minor spoiler warning] the challenge gives a maximum of 8 party favor (ddowiki) at a time, is it possible to increase that a bit since there is only 1 challenge to gain party favor from?
    I wouldn't mind the reward staying at 8 if there were multiple challenges to run.

    Happy BDay! My fifth year anniversary with this game is 2/25, such timing!

    Cordovan: will the Crystal Cove event be adjusted so that map turns in are not needed as high as normal in order to open the cove?

    You forgot to mention "pushing the DDO server's to their limits with shenanigans."

    I just hope those shenanigans don't involve the Lord of Bears...he bugs out too easily.

    Anyway, happy birthday to DDO! This is technically my 5th year on here, but I've thoroughly enjoyed my time gaming here. Thanks to all developers, both past and present, who devote/devoted their livelihood to making that possible. Thanks to my guild friends, past and present as well, as they are the prime reason I initially joined DDO. And thanks to the players, those all throughout the game as well as those particularly on the Thelanis server, whose presence and enjoyment of the game and of each other have allowed the game to keep on running.

    Thanks all! (sorry, no cool gif/pic, although I really like Memnir's dragon pic in his sig)

    Hard to believe I'll have been playing this game for 6 of those years...

    maybe something like the original pirate hats. everyone got one but also scaled a bit depending on how long you had been playing DDO.

    Exactly or maybe a special armor cosmetic based on how long you have been around no game effects on the item just cosmetic
