News & Notes[edit]

Of Special Note[edit]

Festivult Returns![edit]

The Festival of the Twelfth Moon has returned! Gather Coins and bring them to the Festivult Jester in exchange for Eberron holiday treats! Read more about how you can participate in the festival by clicking here!

Risia Ice Games[edit]

From December 13th through December 15th, visit the Harbor and the Bogwater Tavern in House Phiarlan for wintry fun with the Risia Ice Games! Gather white, blue, and purple coins by testing your skills on the Ice Jumps! or fight fiery foes, as fire-based creatures can also drop the coins!

Increase your ice jumping skills with ice skates! Available for rent at the lighthouse, or get a permanent pair from the DDO Store!

Bring your coins to the Harbor lighthouse and speak with Jack Frostbite to exchange them for winter crafting recipes, ingredients, and frosty gifts! You can stop by the Risian Altar at the lighthouse to add some snowy fun to your randomly generated treasure!

The Ice Games will appear throughout the winter season!

General Ice Games Changes[edit]

When you are in a party, Ice Games Coins will now distribute randomly to a party member.

New Adventure Pack: Attack on Stormreach[edit]

The saga of the siege on Lordsmarch Palace in Stormreach continues as the plot expands to include the powerful green Hag, a primary leader from Droaam, the kingdom of monsters. Four adventures launching from the Lordsmarch plaza will send players over, under and around Stormreach, eventually leading to an ancient giant's ruin where monstrous deeds are underway.

  • Defend against waves of attackers to help protect a city ward!
  • Go on a covert mission to stop a Droaam navy blockade!
  • Beat back a surprise attack beneath the city!
  • Infiltrate abandoned giant ruins to confront the powerful and deadly leader of the Droaam invasion

This level 13 adventure pack includes 4 hand crafted adventures! Available to VIPs for free, and available in the DDO Store on December 15th! Visit the Lordsmarch Plaza to begin your adventures!

Armor Appearance Kits[edit]

New cosmetic armors are coming to the DDO Store! Tired of the same old armor? Looking for something with a little more flair? New Armor Appearance Kits are the answer! Like cosmetic hats, the cosmetic armor kit attaches to existing armor sets so you don’t lose the benefits of your real armor. Armor Appearance Kits can be purchased in the DDO Store! Not sure that the robe you are eyeing is exactly what you are looking for? No worries! You can sample the Armor Appearance Kits in designated trial zones prior to purchasing a permanent application. Armor Appearance Kit "dressing rooms" can be found in:

  • The Hammer and Chain in the Harbor
  • Second Gauntlet Goods in House Kundarak
  • The Lion's Head Armory in House Deneith

Armor Appearance Kits can be toggled on and off in case you feel like changing to the old look of your armor, but it is not removable.

The first Armor Appearance Kits are now available! Each set will have variations, color options, and each color option has unique accessories attached. Unbound armor that has an Armor Appearance Kit applied to it will become bound to account, while already-bound armor will retain its current binding.

Introducing Cookie Jars![edit]

Are you overflowing with Festivult treats? There's a new type of storage container available in the DDO Store: cookie jars! These jars can help you store and track your Festivult cake and cookie collection. These jars can hold the following types of edible Festivult items:

  • Cookies
  • Jelly cakes
  • Cupcakes

Available in both small and large sizes for all your holiday treat tracking needs!
