From DDO wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Welcome to the Update 24 Release Notes for Dungeons & Dragons Online! These notes were posted on Thursday, December 11, 2014.

Of Special Note[edit]

New Quests[edit]

  • A new adventure pack is now available that continues the Xoriat story line in DDO!
  • A new free quest is now available that is linked to the Tyranny of Dragons story line!

Mirror of Glamering: Weapons and Auras[edit]

  • Weapons can now be created using the Mirror of Glamering! NOTE: The item from which the cosmetic copy is being made from is not consumed, nor altered. The created cosmetic item is Bound to Account. Items which have special racial requirements will create a cosmetic item with the same racial requirements. Items that appear and remain in the quest upon exit cannot be Glamered. The Mirror of Glamering can be purchased in the DDO Store, and can also rarely appear in Daily Dice.
  • The Mirror of Glamering will make a copy of the base look of a weapon, and will retain the weapon's particle effects (such as flaming.)
  • The weapon cosmetic will only display on your character when you are wielding a weapon with the same combat style. The current combat styles are one-handed, two-handed, quarterstaff, great axe, crossbow, repeating crossbow, bow, rune arm, orb, and shield-only. Handwraps, and thrown weapons are not able to be made into cosmetics.
  • A Glamered Weapon Aura can be used to create a cosmetic "look" on a weapon (such as flaming.) An Aura recipe also exists that allows someone to remove the visual effect of their weapon (such as flaming.) Glamered Weapon Auras do not function on bows, crossbows, or repeating crossbows.

News and Notes[edit]

Airships[edit]

  • Airship Captains now give players the option to be dropped off in the Hall of Heroes in Eberron.
  • The Farshifter and Captain (with the Farshifter Amenity) now offer to take players to Three Barrel Cove.

Classes[edit]

  • Druid Fire and Water elemental forms have been buffed. The casting penalties to other damage types have been reduced to only the opposing type, and the bonus for the corresponding element has been increased. New text:
    • Wild Shape: Fire Elemental - Form: Transform into a Fire Elemental. While in fire elemental form, you have a +3 bonus to caster level and max caster level for fire spells, but your water spells have a -3 penalty to caster level and max caster level. You also gain a +10 racial bonus to Fire resistance, and a -10 penalty to cold resistance. While in Fire Elemental form you gain access to a number of spells that require it. You are considered an Elemental. You gain a +10 racial bonus to your saving throws against magical poisons, and racial immunity to natural poisons, sleep, paralysis, and stun, and a 100% bonus to fortification. If you are a warforged, you are no longer considered a Living Construct, and can now be healed normally by positive energy spells, and you become immune to repair spells.
    • Wild Shape: Water Elemental - Form: Transform into a Water Elemental. While in water elemental form, you have a +3 bonus to caster level and max caster level for water and cold spells, but your fire spells have a -3 penalty to caster level and max caster level. You also gain a +10 racial bonus to Cold resistance, a large bonus to your swim skill, and a -10 penalty to Electricity resistance. While in Water Elemental form you gain access to a number of spells that require it. You are considered an Elemental. You gain a +10 racial bonus to your saving throws against magical poisons, and racial immunity to natural poisons, sleep, paralysis, and stun, and a 100% bonus to fortification. If you are a warforged, you are no longer considered a Living Construct, and can now be healed normally by positive energy spells, and you become immune to repair spells.
  • Tireless Rage, granted with 17 Barbarian levels, now grants a stacking +2 Strength and Constitution Bonus along with a +1 Morale Bonus to Will Saving Throws while raging. The benefit still prevents Fatigue from Barbarian rage.

Combat[edit]

  • Healing Amplification has been changed to be additive rather than multiplicative, in a way that benefits many players while minimizing the detrimental effects to players who have created characters with a very large amount of Healing Amplification. In addition to making Healing Amplifications additive, many sources of Healing Amplification have had their benefit doubled. Healing Amplification is now a rating, similar to Melee Power, Ranged Power, and Spell Power, in that it increases all healing by (100 + Rating)/100. Repair Amplification works the same, as well as values that allow Pale Masters to heal with Negative Energy healing.
  • Monster Champions: Some enemies will now gain randomized buffs on Hard and Elite difficulties. Players can see an indicator above an enemies' head to identify them as having been buffed. Enemies who receive the buffs are called Champions, and have a visible crown above their head to mark them. Mini-boss Champions have a chance to drop a chest when defeated. Monster Champions do not appear in raids.
