D&D online

Postby Kamerynn » Fri Sep 25, 2009 4:03 pm

At least once per day, someone in general chat writes something like: "I can't believe this game is free."

Based on 3.5 Ed, DDO is a decent, instance based MMO. Everything is a dungeon; all exp comes from quests/finishing dungeons (one cannot simply grind mobs for exp). Because it's instance based, there is no PKing and no griefing. PvP isn't all it's cracked up to be - this game is, in my opinion, mostly a PvE MMO. One can solo the dungeons (although this is tough with a wizard/sorcerer), although getting a balanced party makes playing through them on the "elite" difficulty setting go much more smoothly

A free player can get to the same max. level as a paying player (level 20). Everything is available to one who simply wishes to grind, although buying all of the adventure packs simply by grinding would probably take a couple years.

If you like MMOs and you play (or have played/liked) D&D, I suggest you check it out. ;th2

I'd rather play D&D in person, or at least on a forum with a real dungeon master instead of computer simulated maps. However, I probably won't get the experience of playing D&D with people my age 90% of the time, so, maybe an anonymous medium would be better.

I will download the game. Are there any recommendation that you'd like to give me, such as which server to play on?

Is there a larger character variety to pick from?

Alteil is pretty much well balanced. Sometimes you loose and sometimes the enemy wins.
