DDO Players News Episode 26 : A Chat With Cordovan Part Duex



Listen And Download Link


Pineleaf and Dracueltta are joined by special guest Community Manger Cordovan this week! We talked about a thread in the forums, asking if the Forgotten Realms storyline was dead. We also talked about a recent law signed in Indiana, that has lead Gen Con to send a letter, and consider moving the convention out of state.  Cordovan took some questions from the community and our chat room as well. And we found out the Release date for Update 25 – Reign of Elemental Evil!

(Forum Post) FR realms storyline dead?

“The third update of the year will take you to Anauroch, the not-so-barren desert to the north of Cormyr. You will have the chance to battle the armies of Netheril and challenge a new enemy – the enigmatic Phaerimm.” Are these story lines dead? Is the raid still on the quest list? on plans for 2016?

Severlin Replied With

We intend to continue to do both Forgotten Realms and Eberron content, depending on the storyline we are pursuing.

Anauroch was pushed off for a few reasons:

  • Player excitement seems high for classic modules.
  • We had been talking about classic modules for a while, and the time was right to finally do Temple of Elemental Evil. There was high excitement on the team for that module.
  • The storyline we are currently pursuing involving classic modules wouldn’t take us to Anauroch. We were concerned that following ToEE with Anauroch would have seemed like a tangent in the storyline.
  • With Menachtarun we already have a large sprawling desert area and, outside of a cool raid with phaerimm, the didn’t feel we had another take on desert content to offer at that time. We thought about just doing a raid


Another response from Severlin

I thought the Producer’s Letter was fairly detailed, but I can offer a bit more:

  • Do more classic dungeons.
  • Get back to the habit of ongoing storylines that span multiple updates. We are targeting 9-12 months to start.
  • Open up more build choices and more frequent build design discussion through revamps.
  • Have more itemization, both short term for players with less time and long term for players with more time.
  • Let characters progress to level 30 in a fun and satisfying way.

    Just a quick correction that Mike Pence was a Congressman, not State Senator.

    Thanks for the inspiration! I’m off to the Insipired Quarter this weekend! I’ll tell Jeets you all said “Hello!” Perhaps I can get some nifty screenies.
