Assault on Stormreach Continues in D&D Online Update 8


There’s not been a long lag between Dungeons & Dragons Online’s Update 7 and Update 8 as the forces of the monster nation of Droaam step up the siege of the port city of Stormreach. Players who enjoyed the adventure packs surrounding the Minotaurs and the Medusa emissary introduced around Halloween will soon see the war for the city escalate.

Update 8, which is slated for release in the next few weeks continues the move by the Green Hag to unseat the Coin Lords and through four new adventures. Players will fight through these mid-range adventures (level 13 challenge rating) to defend a small town from monstrous assault, breach a naval blockade of Stormreach harbor and eventually uncover strange happening underground leading to a battle amid ancient ruins of a giant stronghold nearby Stormreach.

Epic content for mid-level players is often hard to come by and Update 8 promises to fill in the gaps while building an adventure path up to the campaigns logical conclusion – the defeat of Droaam and defense of the Coin Lords and Stormreach.

Non-quest content is also being included in the update. Players tiring of the same old gear can seek out four new cosmetic armor sets to change things up a bit. These sets will feature multiple colors and unique accessories to give your character a distinct look.

I like this title but I hate it when free to play games have that premium crap, always gives those guys that are rich and want to spend their cash on virtual items that give them an upper hand. why can’t they just make you play casual hours, and have some high level crap for the hardcore players of the game. Very hard to get that good balance but I’m hoping someone puts out a title before I figure it out.

Actually Corpse DDO is a fremium title but the premium stuff you buy doesn;t change the power levels at all.. it’s more about access tto additional instanced adventures than anything… and like lotro, Turbine has made the game so it gifts you currency if you play it so potentially you can earn money to spend just by playing.

Unlike a lot fo the f2p stuff Turbine has worked to keep the balance between the pay and free players.
