    Default U48 Preview 2: 10/21 - 10/23

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

    Hello, all! Preview 2 of Update 48 is expected to open in the afternoon (Eastern) of Wednesday October 21st! It is expected to remain open until sometime in the afternoon (Eastern) of Friday October 23rd. There will be a dev event on Thursday October 22nd 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 is expected to contain the following features:



    In addition to those primary features it also contains the following miscellaneous changes and bugfixes:

    Character
    • Male Shifters now properly use Fiddle animations for Bard Songs with a fiddle equipped.
    • Bard: Swashbuckler: Different Tack no longer has its erroneous Single Weapon FIghting prerequisite


    Items
    • Tier 1 Sonic Legendary Alchemical crafting now properly applies sonic and instead of electric.
    • The Legendary Alchemical Tower Shield is now actually a Tower Shield
    • The legendary alchemical scimitar now works with the crafting station


    Quests
    • n/a


    Miscellaneous
    • Chat: Improved how guild and guild officer chat is handled on the backend. This should greatly improved how quickly guild chat is available after a world restart and how fast it recovers after a reconnection between the game servers and chat server.
    • Chat: Text chat messages sent to general, advice, trade, party, guild, guild officer, or player created chat rooms will now be displayed to you after they go to the chatserver and back. This means that if you are not connected to the chatserver, it won't look like you are chatting with your guild, for example, when you are only really chatting with yourself.


    Known Issues
    • There are armor appearance issues for a number of races in this build preventing many armor's from displaying on the character.

    Only two days to troubleshoot all this? It will be quite a challenge.

    Well goodness, I hope they plan on having a third preview. Its weird how this is for the expansion, but the expansion feels more rushed than the previous update which got delayed? at least once right?

    It's probably to keep the Nov. 4th Launch date. Also I expect preview 3 will be next week and include the raid. But they probably where more working on feywild then they where working on U47 content for the past while.

    The raid is not going live with the expansion so it will likely not be on lama with these previews before everytelse goes live.

    The new Augment system sounds really exciting!

    That system is in great need of updating.

    New Wilderness is great as well, Borderlands is an amazing location, so I am excited for this one!

    Will there be another update for the Satyr hirelings?

    I have not decided which level to buy...

    First of all is this in reference to the new Feywild armors? (Please say yes)
    Second, if so, is there a race without issues that we can model ALL the armors on?
    Third, if the issues are indeed with the new Feywild armors, do you already know all the races which have issues or do you need us to test the armors on various races to catch ALL appearance issues?

    This is in reference to an unknown number of armor appearances throughout the game on a few races. Haven't been able to look into the full scope of the issue and believe it to be unique to this build due to some internal issues.

    The new feywild armor appearances are placeholder in this preview.

    Does no one at SSG even realize that currently female shifter hands and certain THF weapons don't align? This is on the main servers btw. Don't care about Lama.

    Should I be concerned that my shifter race toon transferred from Khyber has no hair and the equipped armor does not show?
    Ok, that is work in progess, so its ok.

    Or that I cannot find the new questgivers inside the Dojo?

    Wandered thru the hut & wilderness which seems under construction but interesting.
    Found the castle and the questgivers.
    I like the trainers being fairies, owls, and other fey-like creatures.

    Found the 2nd castle with questgivers.
