Roll a Warlock in Dungeons and Dragons Online next month

    
28
Time to roll up a new character in Dungeons and Dragons Online! In a new producer’s letter, Robert Ciccolini said that the team will be introducing the Warlock class to the game next month. The Warlock is a more sinister class than others with the ability to forge pacts with fiends and other forces in exchange for power.

Ciccolini said that after June’s Warlock will come July’s Update 27, which will contain an adventure pack in Shavarath. Not content to rest with that, he mentioned that Turbine’s hard at work transferring the game servers to a new data center in order to reduce lag and will be whipping up a new in-game storefront for later this year.

We spoke to Turbine last week about the future of the game and were teased about the Warlock content.

d0ub1ep1u5g00d Dystopiq if you build your character well, you can solo pretty much anything other than the truly top end stuff thats obviously designed for groups like raids  But the vast majority of the levelling content is very soloable. It helps that with a couple expacs to their name, theres a lot of post-15 stuff thats designed to be soloable on the way to the new end caps. and a few past lives helps a lot.

omedon666 This is pretty accurate, actually. In an instance there will be a DM that will narrate the story as you go and have scripted battles and whatnot, like skirmishes. However, unlike skirmishes, they’re not really random.

Bango d0ub1ep1u5g00d Dystopiq yes I join groups all the time, but I dont like forced group play and prefer having the option to do stuff solo if I want.  Back when I played it you could only progress so far. 
has anything changed?

omedon666 Not really – as mentioned above, the game is heavily instanced because it reflects the style of D&D and AD&D – which is that the game comprises modules rather than sandbox-style openworld. It has followed this approach since the start in 2006 and so pre-dates “skirmishes” by well over 3 1/2 years. Perhaps you might want to temper your expectations if your thinking this game plays similar to LOTRO.

d0ub1ep1u5g00d Dystopiq I thought the whole point of D&D was “grouping up”.

Dystopiq Does this game still force you into group content at higher levels to progress your character?
That’s why I quit years ago, I reached the point where wasn’t any content you could solo and had to find a group to continue.
But the lower levels sure were fun!
