Following the transfer of ownership from Turbine to SSG, DDO no longer has an updated list of Official Known Issues. The following stands as an archive of the final official list, made in late 2012.
If you can verify that the subject still exists, please edit this page and remove this template.

Below is a copy of the Official known issues from the official DDO Forums. Maintained here as a reference for when the forums are offline. Please do not edit mistakes in this list (except to update the copy to match the forums), and rather add them to the player notes section.

Below the official known issues are features that are Working as Intended but may cause confusion. Should you come across any of these issues, There is no need to submit a bug report about these issues unless otherwise noted.

Current Official Known Issues (Last updated by Turbine 11-12-2012)

Of Special Note

  • NEW: During a reincarnation, a display error can cause the XP bar to not properly show character XP even though the player has XP and can level up with the Reincarnation trainer.
  • Old and completed in-game help requests will push an inaccurate ticket update notice when you log into a character. This issue is cosmetic and does not mean that you have any open issues with customer service. Removing the ticket status will still result in the same issue the next time you log into the game. We’re working to resolve this issue and appreciate your patience.
  • Windows users with desktop shortcuts pointed to "dndclient.exe" may experience a launcher error. Ensure that your shortcuts are pointed to "turbinelauncher.exe" instead.

Some Intel users may find that when DirectX 10 is enabled, only their UI is visible and the rest of their screen is black. If this occurs, we recommend you disable DX10, enable DX9, and restart the game client.

  • If your quest fails to complete, logging out and back in can re-update your quest status to grant the completion. Make sure you have someone in the quest to keep the instance active for you while attempting this work-around. Solo players please note: logging out and back in may help, but only if your instance does not reset in the process. If the instance resets you will need to redo the quest.
  • Players have reported that they sometimes have trouble climbing up long ladders due to hitching or becoming caught in the middle of the ladder. Many of these "sticky" ladders have been fixed, but there may be other locations. If you come across a sticky ladder, please submit a bug report from the location of the ladder.


  • Barbarian paths are not bestowing their passive dodge bonuses following a level increase until a character log out and back in.


  • Runestone and ammunition recipes lack full descriptions.
  • Some ingredient list icons do not have backgrounds in the recipe ingredient list.
  • Changing sort options in a Cannith Crafting device does not reset the device recipe list's page number.
  • Favor-based crafting ingredients need to be manually dragged into the recipe ingredient bar.
  • Players can disjunct an item multiple times in a row, even though the item has already been prepared for crafting using a Dust of Disjunction.
  • Shards of Bashing are only listed as "Shard" when crafted.
  • The Shard of Masterful Craftsmanship is not being placed into the proper slot in a crafting device's ingredients UI unless greater and lesser essences are placed into the UI first.
  • It is possible to deconstruct, but not craft, converted collars made from handwraps.
  • Crafting essences are not appearing in end reward lists.
  • Items in ingredients bags are sometimes "invisible" when logging back in. This is a display issue only; the items remain in ingredients bags.
  • Immediately attempting to disjunct an item prepared for crafting using a Dust of Disjunction will consume another Dust of Disjunction, even though the item is already prepared for crafting.
  • The "Craft" button is invisible until a recipe is selected from a crafting device UI panel.
  • Information about the various crafting schools does not display when the mouse pointer hovers over the name of the school. This information displays when the pointer hovers over the level bar.
  • Ingredient bag tooltips incorrectly appear underneath the ingredient bag UI.
  • The "Clear" button sometimes stops working.
  • Ingredients bags that contained Everbright Shards (Shield) continue to display unusable versions of these shards, even though the shards have been removed from the game.
  • When a player fails to craft a recipe, the crafting device does not animate or make a noise. An alert message is properly displayed, however.
  • The Shard of Tendon Slice fails to give the tendon slice mutation to an off-hand item, but will overwrite existing suffixes and consume the shard.
  • Reconstruction I shards and recipes do not mention that they affect Repair spells.
  • The tooltip for Equipment Disjunction simply states "item."
  • It is possible to apply Incite +20% to a bow, which increases threat generation to main or offhand melee attacks. Since this is not possible with a bow, the mutation has no effect.
  • Some NPCs have typos in their dialog.
  • Items fixed or modified using the Stone of Change or other Eldritch Devices will sometimes not display the updated effects. This is a display bug only. Removing, and then re-equipping, the item will show the updates to the item.


  • Several Dryads have "DNT" text in their mapnote.
  • When visiting the Challenge Trader in House Cannith, the tooltip for Calomel's Repeating Light Crossbow shows the tooltip for the heavy crossbow.

Working as Intended

Of Special Note

  • NEW: - The Blessing of the Silver Flame is no longer placed in inventory. The effect is instead automatically applied directly to your character after speaking with Asta Quinlin.
  • NEW: - The "Claim Destiny" button will not appear unless you own Epic Destinies. Epic Destinies are not included as part of a VIP subscription.
  • Many crafted items minimum levels now match their randomly-generated treasure counterparts.
  • Due to the new UI layout saving option, UI settings have been returned to the default positions. You may arrange your UI to your preferred layout and then save it by typing “/ui layout save [filename]” in the chat box. Replace "[filename]" with an easy to remember name for that layout. This layout is stored locally, and the layout files can be exported to other computers. You will only need to do this once for each character that you prefer a custom layout for.
  • The DDO Unlimited key mapping will over-ride existing Stormreach key maps. Make a copy of your 'ddo.keymap' file before using DDO Unlimited to retain your old settings.
  • If you are downgrading from a VIP account, any characters of a premium race and/or class that you have not purchased with Turbine Points or unlocked with favor must be purchased/unlocked before you will be able to access the character as a free or premium player. Example: If you downgrade and select a warforged monk, you will need to purchase monk and warforged before you'll be able to play the character.
  • Remember that if you take Jeets offer to skip the tutorial you will be advanced ahead in the storyline of Korthos. In order to group with friends who have not yet unlocked the ability to skip the tutorial, decline Jeets offer to skip ahead and complete the grotto tutorial instance. This will allow you to enter the snowy version of Korthos village to group with other players in that part of the story!

DDO Store

  • Once Favored Soul or Drow is unlocked with favor points, it is still accessible in the DDO Store. This is by design, as purchase in the store will grant Favored Soul or Drow access to your account for all servers, while favor unlocking is per-server only.
  • Viewing the Store before you login a character will only display account level character purchase items. To see a full list of items available to your character, log in the character.
  • The DDO Store's automatic filtering does not recognize feats or enhancements that allow you to overcome prerequisites for some items. This can result in the Store blocking some items from appearing in your catalog because the store doesn't think you are able to use the items. To see and be able to purchase these items, turn off filtering.


  • Hirelings will path to monsters across water if they think they can jump across. They aren't very good swimmers though, and if they don't make the jump, you will have to recall them to you.

In Game Vendors

  • When selling to pawnbrokers, remember that unlike Tavern-keepers and general vendors, other players can purchase an item you've sold to the NPC. Additionally, it is intended that items sold to pawnbrokers will not appear in your buyback list. Instead the item will appear for purchase in the sell tab of the pawnbroker's list.
  • Tad Hardcastle spent so much on his new acrobats outfit that he has tried to cut some corners on his donation gifts. The Greater Tumble spell he casts will only allow players to tumble if they have more than 0 ranks in tumble.

Skills, Feats, & Abilities

  • The minimum ranks in the Perform skill required to use Bard songs are based on the 'ranks' taken, not the modified skill total. This is by design.


  • Diplomatic Impunity
    • Root walls cannot be broken with bows.

Player Notes

Player notes last updated July 14, 2021.

Of very special note

  • The Bug Reporting tool:
    • The ingame bug reporting tool has known to be extremely buggy and unreliable for the last 6 years. The best place to submit bugs if you truly want them to be seen by the devs is the official forums. The best place to submit them if you want them to be seen by the QA team (who may or may not forward them to the devs) is the Bug Report form on the official forums.

Known issues that have already been fixed but not removed from the official list yet

  • Cyclonic Blast damage numbers from the spell do not appear in the combat log.
    • Display fine.
    • Reconstruction I shards and recipes do not mention that they affect Repair spells.
    • Confirmed fixed already.
  • No resurrection shrine appears at the end of the fight against Velah.
    • The resurrection shrine does appear.

Known issues that simply make no logical sense

  • Windows users with desktop shortcuts pointed to "dndclient.exe" may experience a launcher error. Ensure that your shortcuts are pointed to "turbinelauncher.exe" instead.
    • Running dndclient.exe directly has never worked, the launcher has always been required as it passes the login credientials to that client exe. Perhaps it refers to dndlauncher.exe, but tests show that file works the same as turbinelauncher.exe, so this note is rather pointless.
  • Khyber and Siberys dragonshard fragments have weight, even when placed inside of ingredient bags.
    • In a previous patch they wanted to make all ingredients weight either zero or less. And again in several forum posts. These can be several hunderd pounds now. Listed as intended, yet it's obviously not intended.
  • Hard and Elite difficulty unlocks are not filtered out of the DDO Store for VIP players.
    • This makes no sense because VIP players deserve the right to be able to purchase these. Especially if they go on sale and the player knows their subscription will run out soon.
  • The spell point cost for Grease is incorrect.
    • This spells cost was already recently changed. It's now 6SP, which is appropriate since it's a very weak low level spell that does not scale well at higher levels. Likely this was already fixed and they forgot to remove the note.
  • The drop rate for requisition items received through killing boss monsters in Crystal Cove is lower than intended. The requisition item prices have been temporarily lowered in the DDO Store.
    • The current drop rate is nearly 100% for these items. Doesn't make sense that they would want it any higher. Likely it was up'd already and this note was not removed.
  • Some NPCs have typos in their dialog.
    • Too vague to be any use to players. Should we never bug report typo's because you know some exist?
  • Life Replenish is described as a regeneration effect when it instead heals in one burst of healing.
    • Nope. It works as describe, it's a healing over time effect, heals quite a lot of hp every 2 seconds.

Known issues that are a vague, which we can clarify

  • Superior spell potions are not applying the correct damage increase.
    • This refers to the fact some only do +50% dmg, when they should be increasing it by +75%. Examples are the glaciation potions from the risia festival event.
  • Warforged are missing their death animations.
    • They're only missing a few death animations, some display fine.

Known issues that have been in the official list for over 5 years

  • The following potions can not be used while raged. They will be updated in the future. Neutralize Poison, Remove Curse, Remove Disease, Remove Fear.
    • The future.. What is the future in Turbine time? 10 years?
    • To clarify this note: You can't use any "clickies" while raged, and these potions are set to function as clickies. They actually did fix one potion to work as a clicky while raged: Lesser Restore. This was fixed some years ago. When/if the others will be fixed is unknown. There is a workaround - you can use guild vendor potions as they are not clickies (but only if you're in a sufficiently high level guild).
