    Default U48.4 Preview 1: New Raid " The Dryad and the Demigod"

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

    Update 48 Patch 4 is expected to debut the new Raid "The Dryad and the Demigod". It bears special mention that sound plays an important part in the experience of this new raid, in particular, the "Ambient Sound" volume channel. Sound isn't required to complete the raid, we're just suggesting that if you normally play with it off that you go into this one with it on as there's some fun stuff in there. This is a cap level raid that is part of the Fables of the Feywild.

    To access the Fables of the Feywild on the preview server, simply speak to Lord Poincelot in the center island of the Test Dojo to be granted preview server specific DDO points and then "purchase" any of the "Fables of the Feywild" Adventure Pack in the DDO Preview Store (you will likely need to use the search bar in the DDO Store).

    The Dryad and the Demigod can be found by speaking to Hermia (the owl) in the test dojo.


    Known Issues
    • Currently you can not enter the raid unless you are level 30. Hermia will tell you you are on a raid timer if you speak to her while below level 30.
    • Teleporting inside the instance will cause certain voice music sections to terminate before finishing.
    • Disabling sound on focus will also cause these song sections to terminate early.
    • Many drama sections aren’t animating their emotes yet
    • Some characters do not yet have all their special attacks
    • The raid space has yet to have it's final cosmetic pass

    Will the raid require flagging when it is pushed to live?

    Please say no.

    Bug: If you talk to the dryad but don't finish the dialogue (just close the window), the raid bugs out. You can't talk with the dryad again to start the raid.

    The raid does not require flagging. (You do get a warning if you're not flagged, but you can choose to ignore it.)

    Best news about this patch.

    Just did the raid on R1, and failed because we didn't protect Hawthorne from the corruption. Hawthorne was at 100% health and had no debuffs. If there's supposed to be an obvious reason why we failed, it didn't manifest. Known issue?

    I am a bit shocked at the design choice of a protection mission when those are extremely fragile due to lag.

    Yup. That in addition to the loot makes this a complete skip for me. I'll never buy an expansion where the raid comes later again. Fool me once, shame on you. You won't fool me again.

    Default Wow - so that is bad....

    Between the music, the singing, and it being a protection/escort mission - this is just bad.

    Not again! Did they learn nothing from CitW? We don't care for protection quests, let alone raids!

    Just what this game needs another end game raid.

    A chance for the uber players to get more uber gear.

    Yes we can increase the gap between the ubers and the common folk.

    I'm looking forward to another raid I can complete in normal if i'm lucky. Or hard if I find a half decent group.

    How about a raid for Homelands or some heroic raids. Give some new players a taste of raiding.

    If it is any help. The items suck. The augment is very very nifty, if not very good though. But the items are garbo.
    You are the reason people add 'how-to' guides on Dungeons and Dragons Online.

    I'm sure he said it was something that had never been done in DDO before so it can't possibly be an escort quest.

    Remember, the "uber" gear is only useful at end game. It's all ML 29. None of this gear makes anyone more powerful in the rest of the game, including the levels you want to be raiding in.

    And, yes, the game does need more end-game raids.

    However, you are correct that additional raids prior to end game would be great. They ought to make a heroic version of each raid, just as they do for the new quests. Not only would this provide additional content for heroics, but a chance for many players to "learn" the raid.

    Glad to hear that my guess in the hype thread hit the nail. Or am I?

    Not only is this raid an escort/protection mission but is has enemies with the "ring/circle of death" mechanic. I didn't progress in the raid long enough to know if we have to chug a pot every minute.
