Update 28 Named Loot Information

Night Revels New Halloween Event Mysterious Portals



  • You will not need to own or buy a Content Pack to play the Night Revels. Don’t read to closely into anything you see here (such as Challenge durations, or how you think Challenges play). The event is not in a finished state in the current Live build. We’ll have more info about the event soon!



  • To reiterate some of what Steelstar said: Don’t worry too much yet – especially about the “challenge” part. Yes, these will be somewhat similar to challenges, but they are less like all existing challenges than anything called a Challenge so far. Expecting it to be just like Cannith and Eveningstar challenges would be misleading.



  • Think of them less like challenges and more like quests that offer a wide range of levels. Unlike, say, Devil Assault, where we had several tiers of level (5 on casual, 6 on normal, 12 on hard, 18 on elite), we want characters at most levels to be able to run it closer (or above/below) their actual level.

DDO Players Poll – What Module Should Drac Use Next For His Attempted TPK



Tomb of Horrors. There is no other choice.


Bonnie Bew

Kill them all!



Tomb of Horrors. Has to be.



Vault of the Drow.  Give them at least a fighting chance.  Tomb of Horrors = Dead Party.  Even for Drac.



Vecna Lives or the classic judges guild Tegal Manor


Orion McMurry

The Keep on the Borderlands Why not a classic first level adventure. 🙂

DDO Players News Episode 51 Cosmetic Pet Sanctuary

  • My fingers are crossed that all your hireling dreams come true this week!
  • I think Drac was Lvl 15 when we did level 16/17 quests in Necro 4, so he was doomed, kinda like 5e Strahd.
  • I’ll totally compromise on Shroud flagging and we’ll do them on hard!
  • The Eveningstar birds are always creepy!
  • P.S. I spit coffee when the ‘Hallelujahs’ kicked in about the 1st person bug fix. LOL

At least players can ask for subway gift cards from Grandma for birthdays without explaining you’re going to use it for a bunch of virtual potions! Not a bad idea.
