    Default U39 - Is this what Sev hinted at?

    I had to go back and read the last producer's update where Sev hints at something players have been asking for. I thought it might be the new Enhancement tree with Wisdom to-hit and damage!

    However, reading the post again seems to hint at more of a new dungeon of some such.

    Still, if this is it, I'm pretty stoked! I am gearing up to TR a couple of older toons to try some new builds. The creative fires have been stoked for sure!

    Thanks SSG for more flavor and fun!

    Sev has said on multiple occassions that I can vaguely recall that he wanted/planned to add an enhancement tree with Wisdom to hit and damage.

    However, this was not the thing being hinted at in the Producers Letter. That is yet to be announced publicly. More fun things in the future. =]

    Considering that most of the requests for WIS to hit and dmg had been coming from FvS, and they got it as a class feat, the new tree is more like icing on the cake.

    I'll speculate that the "surprise" refers to something more basic relating to the overall QoL. Maybe a change to the LFM system (there've been rumors), or the UI, or the store (the last one is personal wishful thinking, but can't hurt to throw it out there LOL).

    So you're saying we have even more things to be excited for?

    Honestly if you guys pull off a smooth launch of WPM without any crippling issues between WPM, Ravenloft, and the mystery 2018 may be the best year for DDO since MOTU.

    Such a tease Coco!

    I'll admit that DDO has never been more fun than right now. Ravenloft really changed things and there are so many fun things to do. So now you're saying that there are MORE fun things coming our way in 2018?!?!?!?!? AWESOME!

    expansion = MotUD, Shadow, Raventoft..
    Updates = the rest.

    So this is only implies we are not getting more expansions this year.

    This is accurate. 2018 is expected to contain atleast one more update.

    Default Quarterly Updates

    Are we not doing quarterly updates any more? We should have 2 updates this year after White Plume Mountain. U37 Ravenloft was the 4th update in 2017, U38 Rage was the first update of 2018, and WPM U39 should be the second of 4 updates in 2018.

    /curiously wondering what the "surprise" will be???

    A few thoughts (adding things mentioned by others)

    Augment system
    Metamagic revamp
    Epic Destinies going from level six minus 1xp to level 10 and/ or other Epic Destiny system revamps
    Arcane Pass
    Epic Destiny Passes
    Announcement of expansion-possibly Sigil & Pscionics with Gith type races?
    Challenge races or classes (past mention of Kobold challenge race along with Kobold iconic long ago
    revised improved banking (frankly I liked the proposed banking that was ditched due to feedback)
    quest center revised version

    I personally prefer fewer updates with higher quality and better content than 4 lackluster updates as we have been having since MotU.

    Put another way:
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    (Or make that the sweetness of more frequent updates)

    It's going to take a long time for the War Priest/Soul bitterness to leave my mouth then.

    The size of the Ravenloft expansion and the amount of developer time required to create it probably means that we are only going to have 3 updates in 2018. The quarterly update schedule should resume in 2019, unless there is another expansion.
