Dungeons and Dragons Online offers up its latest preview of the epic destinies overhaul

Prepare for the blast and shockwave of Dungeons and Dragons Online’s Update 51 because when this puppy lands, it’s going to shake up the current status quo. At the center of this patch, which is currently going through its third iteration on the preview server, is a rather extensive overhaul to the epic destinies system.

Epic destinies are best seen as advanced classes that become available when a character reaches level 20. With the overhaul, players can advance in up to three epic destinies at a time, much in the same way that the lower-level enhancement window works.

“When looking at our current spread of 12 ED trees, they’re all over the place in effectiveness and usability,” said SSG. “We’ve had to contend with several strange and relatively inelegant designs that make balancing the destinies quite difficult. Therefore, when approaching the monumental task of remaking the system from scratch, we wanted to go back to the very beginning and explore the rough edges in the current system and how we’ve changed our designs to address those problems.”

I always want to love this game, but the engine is just so clunky it keeps me away :(

Good time to jump into DDO and grab pretty much all the content that exists in the game for free or for 99cents

The expansions are 99c and over 50 adventures packs can be gotten for free by entering the code below

The Coupon Code is: DDOQUESTS2021 (1/Account, available to redeem through December 31st, 2021)

I am currently super busy with LotRO (returned recently to the game), but I’d like to try DDO in the future (I love Dungeons & Dragons lore). Do you know if my LotRO/SSG account will suffice or if I have to create a new account for DDO specifically?
Also is it simiar to LotRO that you have to download the whole game in order to redeem the code? Or can it be done outside of the game?

I believe someone has to create a DDO account separate from LOTRO. I tried out LOTRO years ago, and I remember having to create a new account to play.

The free quest code is only redeemable from the DDO Store, which is accessed in-game. The game client has to be downloaded to redeem the coupon.

Ah I see, that is to be expected I guess. Thanks for the infos. :-) Guess I’ll have to create a new account and download the game then.

The changes will both please and anger certain players. I wonder which of the camps will be more numerous?
