Not Everybody Started DDO on Day 1...

With several people already logging in to play Level 10 "capped" characters, Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach (DDO) can be daunting for the complete newbie. Things as simple as character creation and navigation are intimidating tasks when playing and learning the mechanics of a game for the first time. Our DDO - TenTonHammer writer Corso wants to help:

Your first important choice is your character's race. I’m sure you'll notice that some of the race attributes make that race better suited for some classes than others, with humans being a sort of middle ground. You can make your decision based on statistical advantages, or work purely from a roleplaying perspective--either way, the choice is yours. Classes define your character even further, so it's important to figure out your playing style as you decide what you want to be when you grow up. Do you want to be a spell slinging elf, a healing human cleric, or a mighty halfling barbarian (hey, why not)?

Read all of Corso's DDO Newbie Know-How, and be ready for the adventure!
