Last night once again our trio stepped into Stormreach for some DDO fun. It’s a great game for what it is, a D&D-esque combat simulator. Here we are having just vanquished the second wing of the…

The High Road of Shadows

General Comments King’s Forest and its associated quests are the most appealing thing about the Menace of the Underdark expansion pack. Epic Destinies and the epic split are a major part of what’s been ruining this game…

The Red Fens

Originally posted on DDO Outrage:
General Comments The Red Fens suffers from being in the same level range as Vault of Night and Necropolis 2. There’s very little, if any, reason to run it on heroic, and even on epic…

The Ruins of Threnal

Originally posted on DDO Outrage:
General Comments Threnal is really scraping the bottom of the barrel of DDO, at least when speaking strictly in terms of pre-U14 content. DDO was never a perfect game, and I won’t pretend it was.…
