From time to time through each year Turbine presents us with special events on the servers within the game. This page lists the details of each event, whether they are major or minor events, here they all are:

Seasonal events[edit]


The DDO "anniversary" can be interpreted in several different ways, depending what exactly is meant. "Officially" (if not technically), the DDO Anniversary is considered to fall on February 28. The annual Anniversary Event appears somewhere loosely around that time (see quote, below), and the Anniversary Party is currently a regular yearly event.

DDO's initial launch was February 23, 2006, though it was the pre-purchase headstarter.

Technically, the game had a bit of a rolling start for several days leading up to it, with the head start on February 26th. (The DDO staff) generally consider the anniversary patch to be relatively on time if it's released sometime between late February and early March."
