DDO Update 13 + DDO: Menace of the Underdark

Dungeons & Dragons Online: Menace of the UnderdarkBreaking news today for DDO! We’ve got Update 13 and a new DDO Expansion featuring the Forgotten Realms Setting and the Underdark! Looks like our www.ddo-motu.com speculation in episode 244 wasn’t too far off the mark!

Summary of New Features for DDO Sixth Birthday Update #13:

  • Release date is February 22nd!
  • New cosmetic pets!  – Like last year’s crafting system introduction, the cosmetic pet system will be rolled out over time.  Gotta collect them all!
  • A new  adventure pack that opens the door to the new storyline, Menace of the Underdark. This will serve as the beginning  of how Eberron and Forgotten Realms (Faerun) are connected.

DDO: Menace of the Underdark (DDO:MotU) Features:

  • DDO in a new campaign setting, Forgotten Realms! – You start in the village of Eveningstar and adventure through the surrounding King’s Forest wilderness in the nation of Cormyr
  • New Encounters with Drow and Lolth – But do they have Umber Hulks?
  • Finally, The Druid Class – you’ve been wanting it, now you get it! DRUIDS are HERE!
  • Level Cap Increased to 25 – True Epic Levels with character customization options to match your EpicWin-ness!
  • MotD is a premium expansion – The first actual paid for expansion for DDO. No word on cost yet.
  • Release date is This Summer – no exact day just yet!

Exciting news for DDO, especially in light of Wizards of the Coast’s D&D Next announcements!  Of course we’ll be talking about this on DDOcast 245!  Call us at 1-650-DDO-LICH or a message if you got questions or comments you’d like to share!

Also, starting today through Jan 22nd everyone gets 20% XP Bonus and 20% off on all XP Bonus Pots in game!
