  • Loot Preview, New Shadows Chapter and a New Poll

    The DDO official site is filled with goodies! Let me take a moment to catch you up...

  • Sneak Peek: Twilight Forge Module Loot - Get a look at some of the new loot items coming in the July expansion. Experience this look through the eyes of Quirk Meadora, Halfling Rogue extraordinaire.

    Gyroscopic Boots of Striding

    How did I, Quirk Meadora put myself in this predicament? One moment I am laughing it up in the tavern enjoying a drink, the next I am on the run. Truth be told, I do know why I am on the run, and that reason is the same one that is helping me to escape this horrible situation.

  • Shadows of Stormreach: Chapter Three - Keith Baker continues his wonderful exlcusive story.

    Spike found Link in a dark corner of the Leaky Dinghy, talking with a dwarf merchant. Joy flowed through Spike as he charged the pair - the burning thrill that only came with battle. A swift, open-handed blow with his left hand sent the dwarf tumbling to the ground. His right hand locked around Link's throat. Spike pulled his victim out of his chair, lifting him into the air.

  • Player Screenshot Poll - Let your voice be heard!

    Have a look at the screenshots this week and vote for the one you like best. At the end of the week we will tally the votes and announce the winning screenshot. The winner at the end of each week will be awarded the forum title of "Stormreach Chronicler."

  • Make Your Character All It Can Be With Traits...

    On the Lord of the Rings Online Site today, the trait system was unveiled and explained. Taking more steps to let you make your character unique is always good...

    In The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™, a Trait is an interchangeable ability that alters your character in some fashion. Traits allow a great deal of skills customization, so two characters of the same class and the same level can still be significantly different from each other depending on how their players have used Traits to modify their character's skills.
