  • Hey there – hope somebody’s still around….

    Thanks for that point code… the last one, ending in ‘H’… I got it to ‘take’, but I’m wondering if it perhaps was a LOTRO card rather than a DDO card. I logged out, logged back in (to DDO – I don’t play LOTRO) and no points were added. When the code ‘took’, I was presented with a LOTRO log in response — hence my question.

    Thanks,
    - Alan Carpenter

  • Interesting they are focusing more on crafting , its a good thing . But I want to hear more about balance of the game . It needs nerfs and bufs which most were suggested in the forums correctly.

  • As i watch your podcast , I see you transfer player’s questions . My question is this :

    Do you consider balancing Blitz , Shiradi , Monkchers , Furyshots, Monk splashes and how ? Many suggestions are in the forums. The most correct ones is to nerf to prevent way more powercreep.

  • I had a question about game balance but it was determined that this was a question better answered by other devs at a future time.

  • I was curious about the possibility of more new Eberron content. It would be interesting to take the Mournland quest, add in the Lord of Blades, and have a whole new chain in that area.

  • Great episode to look forward to the year ahead! I’m probably most excited about new events, although if the sentient weapons are ones that you can TR with and they track your level then I’d say that one.

  • The ability to get all of your ship buffs from one NPC sounds like it will save a significant amount of time and frustration. Since I hadn’t heard about this plan before, I’d call that the most exciting news for me out of this episode.

  • Raids, raids, RAIDS!! So glad to hear about adding not one, but, two and possibly a third raid to the end game. Being able to add players from outside your typical quest group is an awesome asset to the game, especially when you have more than six players you enjoy questing with online. The tease of new, upgradable raid loot really sparked my curiosity. Looking forward to more information on this(hopefully soon) in the future! Always a pleasure to watch the show, Patrick. More crunchies, please!!

  • Hey. pet peeve….

    / <– that is a "forward slash" or just "slash"
    \ <– that is a "backslash".

    It is "slash raid completions" or "forward-slash raid completions". NOT "Backslash raid completions"!!!! :)

  • It’s great to see that the Devs are still enthusiastic about the game. Especially after the beating they took last year.

  • Sad to hear Monster Manuals won’t be guranteed to come because of the cost of art. The most loved thing about the monster manuals is being able to see the mobs hp and secondly creature companions. First one having no art requirement at all. Maybe make it a VIP perk

  • Great episode as usual. I like the fact that they are finally fixing the cake. Too bad I deleted them on a couple of characters to make room in the character bank. :(
