Dungeons and Dragons Online teases a new class and adventure packs to come in 2019

With both LOTRO and DDO down for most of today due to server work, there are plenty of MMO gamers looking for something to do to fill the time. So why not read the brand-new Dungeons and Dragons Online producer’s letter to knock out a good two or three minutes there?

While the letter does briefly cover the upcoming Masterminds of Sharn expansion (sorry, no release date yet on that), the exciting stuff comes after that. Standing Stone Games outlined the rest of the year’s content offerings, including word that a secret class is being worked on for Update 44. Any guesses on that?

Other reveals include a Sharn-themed adventure pack for Update 43, an adaption of the classic Keep on the Borderlands adventure for Update 45, work on epic destinies, and the addition of “a new racial variant.” I’m guessing Quarter-Elves or Winter Elves or, you know, something Elvish.

It’s gotta be Psionicist, unless they go for one of the weird variants of the main classes, like Bladesinger or Monster Hunter. Inquisitive is going to be a new talent tree, so that’s out.

Voodu Spyce did a detailed look at Tiefling on test server. I am excited to try the iconic Scoundral which starts as a fiddle playing Bard. Timestamp for the iconic is 1:05.

Psionicist suggestion below would go well with the title of “Masterminds”. In D&D inspired MMORPGs at least a class is not the same as a race/species. I’m rather excited to see what they do with Sharn, it has so much potential. As for B2, well that’s some serious nostalgia, it’s the first D&D adventure I ever ran.

The new DDO character class will be a Psionicist (my prediction). Or something Sharn-themed. The new racial variant will be a halfling of some type, most likely related to the Sharn setting as well.

Last new class was Warlock I believe. I would put my money on some type of melee as last one was a caster. Perhaps a hybrid, Swordmage?

Would be nice if they buffed the EK tree for wizards on DDO then, because they’re quite weak.

They just did within the last few months. It’s not imba but overall there’s a quite nice improvement from where it was

Tabaxi, draconians, thri-kreen (preferably the pre-3.5E ones, back when they still had an abdomen and actually looked like insects), or any number of races the community has been asking for. Though, admittedly, with earth genasi being a humanbut, it’s far more realistic of a request since no armour work would have to be done for them.
