    Default Downtime Notice: 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern (-4 GMT) Thursday, September 15th

    UPDATE: The game worlds have reopened. Thank you!

    The DDO Game Servers will be brought down on Thursday, September 15th from 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern (-4 GMT) for a hotfix. Thanks for your patience, and we'll see you back in the game soon!

    The hotfix will address the following issues:

    • Fixed an issue that could prevent progress in Secret of the Slaver's Stockade if you kill enemies while located outside of the Caveling room.
    • Fixed an issue that could cause the map object required to complete Secret of the Slaver's Stockade to disappear if you leave the room after completing the end fight.
    • Vampirism, Vitality, and Keen Cannith Crafting Shards no longer give out True Seeing Shards instead.
    • Fixed an issue that could cause the game client to crash when filtering for Feather Fall, Underwater Action, and Deathblock in the Cannith Crafting UI.
    • Mythic Heroic Loot will no longer appear in the Legendary versions of the Against the Slave Lords quests.
    • The server select scroll bar in the launcher is now its correct green color.

    NOTE: We are building and re-checking out the build for the hotfix overnight, so there's a small chance that something could happen that causes us to cancel tomorrow's hotfix (and most likely do it on Friday instead.) That said, we'd rather cancel the downtime than announce it at 4:00 AM-ish Eastern tomorrow. Assume the downtime is on unless we tell you otherwise.

    Awesome response time hope it all goes well and smooth.
    Check on the Kobolds before the fix, make sure they aren't roaming the halls.

    Fix the old loot not being able to be decon'd while there at it. It may not have been what you boys in Boston wanted but after two days it's clear that we PAYING CUSTOMERS do want it. Don't think for a second that this will just drift away if you ignore it man, people have entire herds of Alts and Mules stocked with loot for this and ignoring us will only make the problem worse.

    Show us Turbine gives a darn about it's paying customer.

    Appreciate the effort (and the long hours). Good luck to you.

    Does that happen with every world? I'd switch worlds, and then go back to your primary.

    What about the max level in the crafting UI? Does it go up to 400, now? Every time I set it to 400, it autocorrects to 340.

    It was like that on Lammania too. I just assumed it meant there were no shards above 340 to craft. (And what really is the point of making yet more Shards of Potential... er... ML30 shards as you go higher and higher?)

    I just checked the Unbound machine. It capped at 425 for Insightful.

    oh wow ouch.... i didn't realise that. i feel bad for anyone who saved all their stuff to decon after the update. i know some were wondering whether it would be best to decon before or after....obviously before.... i think i'd sook a bit if i saved my stuff to decon after and then couldn't.

    but is it just stuff from before the the update? i'm pretty sure that i have got stuff from quests since the update that don't deconstruct - just a few items. i didn't think much of it and sold them to vendor. i figured it was just a bug they'd fix whenever... hmmm that also makes one have to think twice about buying stuff off auctioneer. i've spent heaps buying cheap items from auctioneer to break into essences in the past.

    suppose it's no longer a good idea to do that.... wow.... that's really awful. i suppose there is no way to tell what is from before and after the update, so no way to tell what stuff on auctioneer will deconstruct and what wont. hmmm..... that's gonna kinda kill the low end of the market on auctioneer.

    all i can say is i'm really grateful to people complaining about that. otherwise this weekend i might have spent a heap of plat buying stuff from auction for the purpose of breaking it down into essences and then finding i couldn't. ouch. that would have hurt.

    I wonder if the stuff that won't dissolve all have one of the effects that cannot be crafted?

    you want it when? .you havent been around long have you. they took away our ability to craft stuff we already worked for just so we would have to buy mats in the store. they only care about us being a cash cow for failed projects like infinite crisis.

    I don't want it if it makes the decon machine lag. I can accept vending some old loot. Is it really a big loss? Keep in mind this is not all loot before the update, just all loot before the random loot pass.

    Firstly, NO NEW MATS need to be bought to craft in the new system, it is a matter of choice if you want to spend TP to buy essences or collectibles. Secondly it's not specific to gear being old for dissolving purposes, all nonscaling or otherwise uncraftable prefix effects seem to not fit with dissolving at this point probably as a result of how an item is being checked for decon value. I really think we should just stop complaining about the new cannith as a comparison with old cannith, especially when most effects at most levels scale stronger than their old counterparts.
