There are just a few more days left to enjoy DDO’s Festivult

    
10
As the holiday season and in-game events in most MMOs wind down, Festivult in Dungeons and Dragons Online is ticking to a close as well. Players have until January 3rd to plunder festival coins and turn them in for special rewards. Of course, they’ll have to track down the elusive Festivult Jester — who keeps changing location — to get these goods.

Turbine advises players that these and past years’ rewards will likely change come 2016: “Each year the Festivult gifts are imbued with a different magical power depending on what planes are in alignment. So if you have some left-over goodies from Festivults past, beware, friends — those treats may not bring the same effects as before!”

That’s true. It’s a far cry from Neverwinter Nights

Good luck DDO. You’ve gone too far off the path my friend.

Karl_Hungus Alien Legion Except its an extremely limited toolset, your DM wet dream is the older Neverwinter Nights and both the ability to make single player modules, and persistent worlds with powerful scripting tools and the ability to add in custom content ranging from graphics, music, tilesets, classes, etc, etc.
I’d love to see a DDO sequel with a toolset though, or even just some degree of randomization. DDO quests are fantastic, just not on your 20th time through them.

Neverwinter is very much a D&D game apart from the combat. Obviously that’s going to be a deal breaker for the hardcore D&D crowd and thankfully DDO does a good job on that end. But Neverwinter’s foundry where you can create your own quests and stories etc? C’mon. That’s a DM’s wet dream right there.

Alien Legion Karl_Hungus i was going to say the same thing.  To me Neverwinter is like the old Capcom D&D beat em ups.  It has the names of the spells, monsters and classes from D&D but its not D&D.  

DDO is a really great MMO experience though and completely unique.

Karl_Hungus Alien Legion No, I said D&D games. NWO is a fun game, but it has nothing to do with D&D.  Sure, they try to force feed some familiar names into it, but by any rule-set imaginable it really has nothing to do with D&D.

It does have a damn fine UI though …

Don’t forget Neverwinter Online.

It’s still bewildering that DDO remains the only D&D MMO going.  Keep fighting, old friend.  Keep fighting.

I totally read that title as “just a few more days left to enjoy DDoS festival” because that’s essentially what gaming has become during the holidays thanks to wanna-be hackers on vacation from high school.
