    dungeons and dragons online

    Players have been clamoring for a robust crafting system in Dungeons and Dragons Online and Turbine has answered their pleas. With the upcoming Update 9, Turbine not only adds a crafting system that should not only please players, but still remains true to the pen-and-paper roots of the game. Not only is there a new crafting system, there is also a brand new adventure pack featuring the first appearance of a hideous new creature, new enhancements, tweaks to combat, and a host of other changes and new things. I was lucky enough to get a hands-on preview of the new content from Fernando Paiz, Executive Producer, and Erik Boyer, Producer.

  • Ten Ton Hammer's Ethec talks with DDO's Erik Boyer and Iain Currie at PAX East 2011

    Excluding Duke Nukem Forever (which counts only in concept), we only found one five+ year-old game on the show floor at PAX East 2011. That game was Dungeons and Dragons Online, and Producer Erik Boyer and Design Director Iain Currie were on-hand to show us how Turbine continues to keep this hybrid free-to-play success story fresh.

    One feature that DDO historically lacked is a full-fledged crafting system - but no more! Iain describes how crafting works, why you'll need to play the game to be a successful crafter, and how Turbine plans to phase in the changes to minimize player economy upheaval. Next, Erik takes us deep into the fourth and final part of Update 9. It's a mad journey through the sensibilities of a fleshcrafting mindflayer "artist", complete with a catwalk and "Spring Fashions" plus what might be DDO's most intense boss fight yet, so have a look at this DDO Update 9 / Crafting Improvements video from PAX East 2011!
