    Default U44 Preview 1: 10/29-10/31

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

    Hello, all! Preview 1 of Update 44 is open! It will remain open until sometime in the late afternoon (Eastern) of Thursday October 31st. There will be a dev event on Wednesday October 30th from 8-10 PM Eastern where members of the DDO team will be available to collect feedback and answer questions in real time on Lamannia.

    This preview contains the following features:



    In addition to those main features there are an assortment of smaller changes and/or bugfixes which are listed below

    Character
    • The Base Attack Speed for bows and throwing weapons has been adjusted for a better experience in the Heroic levels, while keeping the current maximum attack speed at Base Attack Bonus 25 and above. This change approximately doubles the relationship between Base Attack Bonus and Attack Speed, but adjusts the per-level progression to provide less of a per-level increase. Players at all levels should experience an increase in animation smoothness and Attack Speed, with the increase tapering off as your Base Attack Bonus increases.
    • Dodge values can no longer be reduced below zero.
    • Spells: Thunderstroke no longer goes through Spell Absorption.
    • Spells: Rend the Soul no longer puts Thunderstrike on cooldown.
    • Spells: Admixture Spells now accept the Accelerate Spell Metamagic. The Accelerate Spell Metamagic is not trainable at this time.
    • Bard: Swashbuckler: Coup de Grace now properly requires five levels of Bard.
    • Cleric/Favored Soul: Warpriest and War Soul's Wrathful Weapon damage now properly hits undead.
    • Druid: Druidic Survival Mastery now applies more consistently.
    • Monk: Touch of Despair now applies its debuff more reliably.
    • Rogue/Artificer: Several versions of Wrack Construct no longer use placeholder icons.
    • Rogue/Artificer: Wrack Construct in the Mechanic and Battle Engineer trees have had their descriptions updated.
    • Wizard: Pale Master: Some text has been cleaned up in Pale Master enhancement tree descriptions.
    • Wizard: Pale Master: Characters may benefit from the feat "Rapid Reload" while Zombie Form is toggled on.
    • Vistani Knife Fighter: Fixed an issue with one of the Vistani Knife Fighter cores not affecting the two-weapon fighting style. The enhancement has been re-written to affect all melee combat styles.


    Items
    • Items that grant Negative Spell Power now also grant an equivalent amount of Poison Spell Power. Their tooltips have been updated to reflect this as well.
    • Several new Night Revels weapons that were dealing Piercing instead of their standard damage types now deal their standard damage type.
    • Fixed a typo in the "Frozen Aether" effect tooltip. (Can be found on the Long Bow "Void, the Endless Cold")
    • The Esoteric Initiate set bonus now has a more accurate tooltip.
    • The Feywild Dreamer set now provides its correct stats.
    • Several items that had their skill or alacrity bonuses adjusted erroneously are now back to their proper values.
    • The Shattered Device filigree set now applies on melee strikes.
    • Fulcrum Shift has been redesigned, and is now: Kick 'Em While They're Down: You have +5 to-hit and damage to enemies that are knocked down or stunned.


    Quests
    • Crystal Lasers and Mirror Puzzles have been updated. Laser sources no longer shoot a beam unless there is a mirror at the end of it. Corrected an issue where the laser fails to appear on a valid match.
    • Fixed several typos in Killing Time and Tavern Brawl.
    • Fixed some typos in Alynda d'Cannith's dialogue.
    • Fixed typos in Temple of the Deathwyrm.


    Sound
    • Added new footstep sounds for players adventuring on Gravel-like terrain
    • Audited our existing footstep sounds, and applied correct sounds to different terrain types


    UI
    • In the Looking For Group Menu: The Open Group listing for classes now properly includes Warlocks and will no longer include Epic levels as per its class designation.
    • There is a new "+" side-tab off of the "Stats" tab of the Character Sheet Menu. This displays the following statistics:

    Sounds good, especially the quest list revamp and the extra tab for stats.

    I'm pretty sure I'm going to end up really liking the mounts even if I was lukewarm to start.

    Hmm, first WPM and now this. I wonder what broke the moratorium on new 20-25 content. I hope they’re decent to run at level, WPM pack is alright if you exclude Big Deal, so I’m hopeful.

    Is the Feywild Dreamer set among the bugfixes? It's been a few weeks, now.

    Also, yay! I can't wait to see the stats tab, I'm assuming it has useful information like spell penetration, tactics/spells DC's, etc?

    Ah so dead on arrival content?

    I get the need for new starter type areas for heroics, and I sort of get the concept for epics however the problem comes down to reality:

    Unless the xp is worth it people are likely to do other stuff in epic. The WPM set is an example, the other quests were a novelty and played through them got the few useful clickies offered and moved on never to be seen again. WPM itself is the only one that ever gets visited regularly.
    On the bright side saves my premium accounts pack purchases.
    In epics you can run content under level no penalties but not the other way around. If you want to revitalise running the older content just upgrade the loot to modern scales.

    The Myth- TR will make my character powerful
    The Reality- Those kobolds in Water Works won’t have a chance but nothing else cares-Learn to play your build and all its abilities in actual difficult content, get gear and reaper points in level 30+ content and raids.
