More or less stopped playing lotro now, only logged in to pay housing maintenance recently.

So am thinking of trying DDO, anyone played this as it's been about a while? Will try the free servers first and see what its like before spending much i think.

If you're a D&D fan you might like it.

But there's a reason it's a free game :p

Playing it also at the moment. Very casually though.

It still strikes me as a lot like LOTR. Not as good graphically but there are some things that compensate somewhat - its free for starters.

Cannith server if people are around

I am playing DDO quite a lot these days. I find it loads of fun. But I am also and old D&D addict Smile

It is a bit less pretty than lotro, and the fighting system needs some getting used to but else the interface is quite ok.

What really makes me like this game, is the inventiveness in the quests. They are just so very different all of them. You actually have to think to some stuff through to be able to finish them. It isnt only: Kill X of Y and return to Z for reward. There are traps, puzzles and mindboggling dungeons.

Other good thing is that there isnt a lot of running around vast screens doing nothing but traveling. Mostly you get the quest and right next to the quest giver is the instance. All quests happen in instances, so there is no "waiting around for respawns because some nub ran by and killed my Elite mob I have to kill".

The character setup is a bit more difficult to lotro, since you can make some mistakes in the beginning that cant be remade, so if you want to start a char you might want to read up, or else be ready to remake your char pretty fast.

You can buy different pacs with more interesting instances in it or you can grind your way for free. There is also a premium account system where you pay pr month and get access to all the goodies. But that is expensive

So, if you are tired of lotro, I can recommend trying out DDO.

Too bad about the server Kit, my char is on Khyber (american server and f2p). And biiig surprise: I play a ..HEALER!! (cleric in ddo).

Started playing last night and seems good so far, puzzles and traps make a nice change to quests.

And not repeating everything for the nth time is the best part by far Smile

Hmmm, might have to dig up my Paladin/Rogue if there's a chance of some group action, if you know what I mean. The reason I stopped playing DDO was because I'd pretty much exhausted the solo bits and didnt want to join a clan.

Edit: Nvm, I'm on Thelanis.

Ella/Gal

Simple solution to the server issue. Start again...

I think we are all lvl 2 and 3 at the moment so would be great to see you both knocking about

I'm working late shifts all weekend, so I'll have to catch up with you next week some time.

Edit: Which server are we going for then?

I've rolled another Pally/Rogue on Cannith, name of Cardovilian. He's only lvl 1/1 so far and still on Snowy. Any of you still on Snowy too or have you crossed to Stormreach?
