Turbine Entertainment pushed the first expansion to Dungeon & Dragons Online live today. The company is celebrating its moment with an all-new trailer featuring the main antagonist of Menace of the Underdark, the Demon Queen of Spiders Lolth.
The entrance of Lolth brings the drow race, previously added to the game during the transition to the F2P model, to their evil roots and will make up the majority of fodder. Arachnophobes beware, the expansion brings numerous spider-based mobs, including the creepy drider.
We’re back with a second interview with Dungeons & Dragons Online Executive Producer, Fernando Paiz, from Pax East 2012, this time talking to him about the new Druid class.
DDO’s first expansion, Menance of the Underdark, is launching on June 25th and with it comes the new Druid class, which we got to see in action during our interview and learned a little more about it.
The Druid class has the Wild-Shape ability which allows for the character to take three basic forms, wolf (melee/DPS), bear (tank) and elemental form (fire or water), with each form having different versions of itself. For example as you level, you can open up “Winter Wolf” or “Dire Bear”, which provide different abilities or spells to the player. Each alternate version also has its own skill tree-line, with 6 lines all together to start, but possibly more versions down the road.
We also find out a little more about the new Epic Levels and Epic Destinies which allows players to level from 20 – 25, as well as complete multiple Epic Destinies, not just their class Destiny. Check out the full DDO Druid class interview below.
