    Default U43 Preview 2: Named Loot

    Disclaimer
    Everything seen on the preview server, Lamannia, is not final and is subject to change or removal before live release.

    Hello, all! The second preview of Update 43 is now open. The preview is expected to remain open until sometime in the evening of Thursday August 22nd. There is planned to be a Dev event on Wednesday August 21st from 8-10PM eastern where members of the DDO team will be available on Lamannia to answer questions and collect feedback in real time.

    This preview is expected to contain the following features:



    This is the named look that'll drop in U43. It contains some set items, some items not in any sets, two new sets of Filigree, and two new Minor Artifacts.

    As always, constructive feedback is a lot easier to reply to than anything else. Keep it clean, folks

    These are Heroic level 17, Epic level 29. The Filigree will be added to the Generation 2 pool, the Artifacts will drop randomly in this pack (note that ONLY these two artifacts will drop in this pack - it's not one big pool of Artifacts). Heroic and Epic items match Sharn and level 17 CC's Power Levels exactly, no power level jumps. I've transcribed the Artifacts because it's not always clear what numbers will end up where Oh, and, this will use the Nearly Finished crafting system for a few more Nearly Finished items. Same costs to complete items, these chests will drop the same ingredients, etc etc. It'll all work out the way you hope it will.

    Changes from previous iterations are marked in this color.

    Several items have the wrong icon
    Some Armor/Robes have incomplete or incorrect physical appearances

    Can you make at least the set items ML 15, with appropriate scaling, so that everyone can get their "Sharn" set at the same time?

    Lamannia seems closed to me at the moment.

    Edit: It's open now.

    Short look:
    Sea legs is still Underwater Action +0
    Legendary Sea legs is still Underwater Action +0
    Lenses of the Dark Depths is still Quality Assassinate +0 (legendary version is +2)

    Seconded. For a lot of abilities on these items, it doesn't budge the numbers any and it would be a great quality of life thing to get them with everything else rather than putting on a set for 2 levels then immediately changing everything to fit the ML17 sharn gear. I think most people would prefer to have them at ML15 with everything else than very, very slightly more powerful items at ML17. Keep the quest level where it is, of course, just scale the items to ML15.

    Also, very happy to see that the suggestions from the first iteration were accepted. Thank you for taking into account our feedback.

    Why wasn't the Delicate Thimbletips spellcraft bonus changed to a subtle spellcasting bonus?

    I love the orbs, though.

    I haven't dug deep yet, but I did notice that the legendary version of Experiment Garb doesn't have Legendary in its title, while all the other legendary items do have Legendary.

    Is this intended?

    I'm going to go check them out on lammania, right now!

    EDIT: The gloves have the proper mystic diversion on them, now that I see them in-game! Thanks for the change!

    EDIT 2: I'm assuming the orbs are +5 insightful DC's and +5 quality int/wis/cha? I don't see them in the loot list.

    EDIT 3: This loot tetris is frying my brain!!

    I don't either.

    I'd love to see them.

    I mildly disagree. I did not check Lamannia, but ML17 should increase school-specific Spell Focus to +4. Also Spell Penetration to +4. And it could also mean +2 Quality stat on upgrade?

    But ultimately I don't care.

    My entire gear setup depends on them being +5 to make any sort of difference, but no matter which way I slice it, I'm actually losing 1-2 DC's by switching from slavers to this new set due to gear constraints (most notably losing profane attributes and quality spell focus). This really blows, and I've got a headache from looking at these numbers for close to 3 hours. I can't make things work and I'm getting increasingly frustrated. The numbers just aren't adding up correctly. I'll be forced to wear both the fey and a 3 piece slavers set to break even, which isn't going to solve any problems.

    "...The Cloak in the Negative set is being moved to another container slot, and we'll keep the art in our back pocket for some other time. I am open to suggestions about where it ends up."

    Hi Lynnabel,

    It could also be done for "Gossamer Weave" I would not want to replace the Veltet. It is difficult to configure the items if already in the next update an item has competition in the slot.

    "Feywild Dreamer Set
    Gossamer Weave - Cloak - Enchantment DC, Illusion DC, Spell Resistance, Spell Penetration"

    Another suggestion: could you to remove "protection" from Skin-tight Gloves and add necro focus? In the Fey set we have 3 focus dc bonus.


    The English is not my first language, for this reason i hope that y understand me haha, pls read and answer my post hahaha

    Oh, I don't care about their stats. I just want to see what their visuals look like!

    I like the Grey Leathers. They'll probably be my new cosmetic for the next few weeks until something else comes along.

    I'll throw my weight behind ML15 too.

    The way the game has evolved, the way power has creeped, in heroic things are more valuable if you can equip them earlier, even if a higher ML might increment a stat up by one.

    ML 16-20 is a particular gear doldrums too. It's too high to equip right away on an Iconic...the advantage of ML15 sharn gear is it can take you from 15-29 without needing any swap, so you're going to build around that. Having a separate tetris set for 15-16 isn't really something people will do. But it's also too high for Heroic, since you only really get to use it for a very small window before you hit 20 and are ready to TR. And gear at 21 makes a big jump in scaling, so if you're ETRing then ML16 gear is too low.

    ML15 on the new gear would make it way more attractive. ML 16-20 gear probably needs to look at having pseudo epic power (like Feat: Combat Archery or something) to make it more attractive in late heroic and early epic play. Tetris convenience > item power more and more lately.

    The Blackmail - Medium Armor (same as sharn armor except with Negative Amp)

    Robes of the Dreadkeeper - Robes (same as sharn armor except with Negative Amp)
    The robes in this set appear to grant Exceptional Spell Lore and Spell Power, but no Negative Healing Amp, is that intended?

    If so, is it too late to get a (cloth) outfit with the same properties as the armor (i.e., the negative healing amp)?

    Any chance Seeker on these could be Insightful or Quality Combat Mastery, or if that doesn't fit the theme Exceptional/Insightful or Quality Seeker? Not many useful items at this level with these affix at this level...

    Yes, ML 15 on items please.

    The game is built around TRing. Please hold off on more gear at new level breaks until a TR/Inventory revamp is done.

    Thank you.

    Popped in to take a look at the item appearances. Yes most are still in an unfinished state but the Gossamer Weave Cloak is gorgeous. Although I think its odd for items associated with the Feywild to be so red. When I think Fey, Fey magic, and the Feywild I usually think of delicate pinks, periwinkles and sometimes pale greens. Red of this scarlet hue is a color I associate with Blood Magic and therefor something I might see on a Palemaster or Red Wizard of Thay, or an Acolyte of the Skin.\



    Be that as it may I would like the dev team and art team to know that I'd be willing to purchase this as cosmetic-cloaks in a wider range of appealing colors. Particularly Violets, Blues, Greens, as most of my characters are in those colors. Have you thought of a sheer item of this type with rainbow colors like the Hypnotic Pattern Spell? Would be quite the thing for an Illusionist. Someone ought to use these transparent cosmetic appearances to make a cloak that looks like spiderweb too.
