  • Spirituality & Spellbinding 101!

    Get out your spellbooks, class...it's time to brush up on your spell casting knowledge. Darkgolem takes a look at advanced spell casting concepts in Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach (DDO) in his guide, Spirituality & Spellbinding. If you plan on doing more than swinging a weapon and taking hits in DDO, this is a must-read!

    Metamagic is a way of changing the nature of a specific spell. Using metamagic, a spell caster can make spells last longer, make them reach farther, make them more difficult to resist, or even make them do more damage. The ability to manipulate metamagic in DDO is gained by acquiring metamagic feats.

  • A Divinely Inspired DDO Build



    We're at it again! Zed has another custom build for those who need some inspiration for the launch of Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach (DDO) on February 28th--the Versatile Cleric.

    This is the cleric build I’ve been playing with during the European beta test. Offering a large number of turn undead and an ability to handle combat as well as maximum spell points for a character of its level and abilities gives it great all-round performance.

  • Spell-casting 101: From the Sacred to the Sorcerous

    It's time to take a bit of the mystery out of spell-casting in Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach (DDO). Darkgolem thoroughly explains how spell-casting works in DDO for casting classes from bard to wizard. I know I certainly learned a thing or two!

    All classes gain spell points when they gain the ability to cast spells. You receive a set number of spell points for your class at each level, plus bonus spell points for having a high primary statistic, and you can have bonus spell points for items, feats and enhancements. While I haven’t yet been able to determine exact numbers for upper levels, wizards and clerics start with 100 spell points, sorcerers with 150, bards with 50. For bonus spell points based upon your primary statistic, use the following formula...

    Want that formula? Then you've got to read Sacred and Sorcerous: Spell-casting Basics for the Divine and Arcane Caster at DDO - TenTonHammer.

  • Masters of Stealth

    Cloak and dagger. Picking locks and disarming traps. Ralsu thinks he's got it all figured out when it comes to rogues in Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach (DDO). He brings us a custom build called Master Thief to show off his knowledge:

    The Master Thief usually seeks to avoid combat, using his Hide and Move Silently skills to his fullest. When he does enter the fray, he waits until someone has engaged the enemy first and relies on his Bluff skill and Sneak Attack class feat to do maximum damage.

    Read Master Thief at DDO @ TenTonHammer and see if you've got what it takes!

  • There's a Tavern in the Town



    Where's the fluff in Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach? Well, it's practically non-existent. Shayalyn went in search of non-leveling content and found very little in DDO, so she chose to hang out in taverns...er, write about taverns. Are taverns non-leveling content? Eh...maybe?

  • Explore DDO's Versatile Fighter

    Ralsu of our DDO @ TenTonHammer community brings us a basic guide to the fighter in Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach. If combat is your thing, and you like to dish it out as well as you take it, then the versatile fighter may be the class for you.

    Adventuring parties welcome fighters for their ability to withstand hits while providing solid damage. When the party’s scout bumps into a gargoyle around the corner or spiders besiege the cleric, it will be the fighter who rushes in to “clean house.” Players who choose to create a fighter will enjoy the ability to join any fracas and the specialization possible because of the numerous bonus feats fighters receive.

    Which abilities, skills, feats and enhancements are important when creating a fighter? Read the fighter class guide at DDO - TenTonHammer to find out!
