DDO Players Poll – What Is Your Favorite Class To Play?


Dougglen Dower

I like splashing a bit o’ Artificer in every build I make, and pure melee Arties are a (lightning) blast!


Geoff Hanna (From DDO Gamer)

I like some better than others but still, no clear favorite. It depends so much on how I kit them out and what play style I develop for the character.

Vince Whirlwind Left A Comment On 1st Edition Player’s Handbook Comes To DnDClassics

I have my first edition copy of the Player’s Handbook, but it’s about the 5th printing of it, with the 1983 cover art on it.



Zum Wrote Us An Email This Week

Hi Draculetta & Pineleaf,

I’m wondering which server to choose?

I’ve been playing Lotro for almost 3 years and back before I made my final decision to play Lotro I considered DDO. I chatted with an awesome person at Turbine phone customer support and helped me link DDO to my account I use Lotro with. Now, I know what some are thinking but the man at phone customer support was very helpful and informed me that what I was trying to do could only be accomplished by going through phone support. I have downloaded the game & looked at the server list. While it is a vastly smaller list than Lotro I know this decision needs to be made correctly. Any advice you can give me will be helpful.

FYI–I will not be leaving Lotro just adding to my game experience.
