D&DO now in the free to play part of Steam

#1 Edited by fox01313 (5069 posts) -

Just finished downloading it & going to see if anything is left on the trial account from ages ago though I feel I'll start over regardless. Anyone else going in to try this out to see what it's all about or what all has changed?

Once I figure out characters/server info I'll put that up if there is any of the server stuff on the f2p version.

Edit-just got through the intro area & finding this a gem of an mmo/rpg in at least how it treats rogues with traps/hidden doors (always felt WoW ignored most of this to just make rogues combat only). I might be able to answer a few questions people might have on this from my impressions so far, the mmo is good for many things but combat still feels a little loose & would love to have a button to just grab nearby loot. Went with the Thelanis server using ShadyRaven for my rogue.

I haven't played in forever but if we settle a GB server I will totally play again. I love this game for no good reason really. I last played last year btw so ask me anything.

Let's do this, that game is purely made for community events and progression. I would love to see a GB server and guild running so we can get some of the best content under our belt.

@ck1nd: I'll see what the process is like to make a guild in the game, if we can strike up enough interest I'll throw in some points to starting one.

@Irvandus: Looked in on it myself, it's 150 turbine space bucks to get the charter (quick link to it by pressing O for the social), after that I'm not sure but seen some of the guild airships that are there makes it look a pretty good idea. Always liked that with Age of Conan, DDO & others where you can create some kind of customized area for specific guilds.

Any European duders that want to play DDO?

@fox01313: Played this mmo for almost about half a year year or more when it went f2p - bought some content packs and did a lot of epic quest running with a core group of people - it's pretty fun for what it is, but eventually I got bored/tired/fed-up (fed up mostly with greedy people who keep looted gear amongst themselves instead of sharing with others that helped them get them).

I'd join ya, but my server is khyber; and I also have no motivation to load that game back up... :(.

Monk is pretty fun to play btw - if you ever decide to go premium or buy the points for it.

It's been years since I played it but I have good memories of it.

I downloaded it and keen to try it out when I have time. Would be cool to play together with some GB folks if I can get into it.

Are the servers divided into Europe and North America zones?

@Gargantuan: Last time I checked they were.

Just downloaded it on steam, and found it surprisingly interesting. I enjoy the GM-esque commentary during quests, it's like a nerdy surprise every time. Even really mundane things like looting a thing is a huge deal when the voice comes on. It's like, dude, it's just a key I looted... but if it's that important, I'll hold on to it.

Could definitely see myself playing this for a long time, but not solo. So a GB server and guild could be pretty cool.

I'd be totally down to play this with some GB duders such as yourselves.
