From DDO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Here are the Release Notes for Update 39, released on Wednesday, July 18th, 2018.

Of Special Note[edit]

White Plume Mountain and Other Tales[edit]

This new classic dungeon, along with a collection of other tales, is now available in a new Adventure Pack that is Free to VIPs! Includes five new dungeons, including the classic module White Plume Mountain, plus four additional all-new tales of mad Wizards and their works. The five quests are not part of a narrative arc, but instead tie thematically around Wizards run amok. The questgiver for White Plume Mountain can be found in the Eberron Hall of Heroes, near the Against the Slave Lords questgivers, while the questgivers for the other quests can be found outside of the Tower of the Twelve, on the road leading to Meridia.

White Plume Mountain: Level 9 Heroic, 32 Legendary[edit]

Search ye far or search ye near
You'll find no trace of the three
Unless you follow instructions clear
For the weapons abide with me.

North past forest, farm and furrow
You must go to the feathered mound
Then down away from the sun you'll burrow
Forget life, forget light, forget sound.

To rescue Wave's Crest, you must do battle
With the Beast in the Boiling Bubble
Crost cavern vast, where chain-links rattle
Lies Whelm's Crest, past water-spouts double.

Blackrazor's Seal yet remains to be won
Underneath inverted ziggurat.
That garnered, think not that you're done
For now you'll find you are caught

I care not, former owners brave
What heroes you seek to hire.
Thought mighty, I'll make each one my slave
Or send them to the fire.

-Your host, Keraptis'

Another Man's Treasure: Level 6 Heroic, 21 Epic[edit]

Objects made out of pure platinum have unexpectedly turned up in the Stormreach Dump, causing dissent among the Kobolds who scavenge there.

Kind of a Big Deal: Level 6 Heroic, 21 Epic[edit]

A powerful magical artifact has gone missing. If it is not found quickly, it could cause pandemonium in this once quiet valley.

Memory Lapse: Level 6 Heroic, 23 Epic[edit]

The famous wizard Tarent Hoxworth has organized his memory as a library. Each memory was neatly filed away on the shelves, until a rival wizard cast a spell that has brought chaos to Tarent's tidy mind.

The Price of Freedom: Level 6 Heroic, 25 Epic[edit]

The Esoteric Order of Aureon has built a very special prison specifically to contain lawbreakers who are talented in arcane arts. Now, you are going in, to break a friend of a friend out!

Falconry Universal Enhancement Tree[edit]

The Falconry Universal Enhancement Tree gives players the ability to use a Hunting Bird to make coordinated attacks on targets, and hones the character's ability to make pinpoint attacks. The Falconry Universal Enhancement Tree can be used by any character that has unlocked access to it, similar to Harper Agent and Vistani Knife Fighter. The Falconry Universal Enhancement Tree is available in a collection of White Plume Mountain bonus items, available in the DDO Store. The tree will be available as a separate purchase in the future, and will also be available to unlock on a per-character basis in a future update. Further details, including specifics of all of the enhancements in the tree, can be found lower in the Release Notes.

Treasure of Crystal Cove Item Update - Event now![edit]

The Treasure of Crystal Cove event has been updated to make it easier than ever for participants to earn in-event items! We've redesigned some of your favorites, and added some new items as well. Crystal Cove's mining challenge now scales up to level 35, and a new tier of gems drop at the highest levels that can be turned in for level 28 versions of the Cove's loot.

Additionally, older items can be exchanged for new versions by speaking to Euphonia, although Augments or Sentient Gems are not transferred to the new version. (The Trinkets aren't included.) Some examples are:

  • Treasure Hunter's Spyglass gains an Intelligence bonus, trades Search and Spot bonuses for Exceptional bonuses to all Int and Wis skills, and gains Green Augment slot and, at 12th level, True Seeing.
  • Ornamented Dagger trades its elemental spellpowers for elemental spell critical bonuses, plus a Red augment slot and a higher Concentration bonus.

Items no longer require rare gems to acquire, and the rare tier of gems no longer appear. Each item is fully upgraded out of the box. Legacy versions of the items can still be obtained in a corner of the tavern in Smuggler's Rest.

The Crystal Cove event is running from now until August 12, 2018.
