After a short delay, Dungeons and Dragons’ latest expansion released to digital munchkins today. Masterminds of Sharn marks only the fourth time that this long-running MMORPG has pushed out an expansion and the first time that said expansion takes place entirely in the Eberron campaign setting.The expansion takes place to the vertical city of Sharn, where nine dungeons, new races, and a public area awaits. It also adds the Tiefling race, the Inquisitive enhancement tree, artifact treasures, guest dungeon masters, and the Scoundrel iconic hero. Even if you don’t buy the $40 expansion, today’s Update 42 brings several other changes and fixes, so you should check out the patch notes no matter what.
“Explore one of the most iconic locations in the D&D Eberron campaign setting in Dungeons & Dragons Online: Masterminds of Sharn,” the studio wrote. “Navigate the power struggles between the rich and powerful as you hunt from the highest towers of the city to the deepest depths of the Cogs. The artifact that protected the city of Stormreach has been stolen. You’ve followed the trail of the culprit across the sea to the vast metropolis of Sharn. Can you recover the Stormreach Beacon without becoming a casualty of the conflicts between the Aurum, the City Council, and the Boromar clan?”
