Welcome to the Update 27 Patch 1 Hotfix Release Notes for Dungeons & Dragons Online! These notes were posted on Wednesday, August 19, 2015.

News and Notes[edit]


  • Melee and Ranged Power now work properly when they are brought into negative numbers. For example, -50 Melee Power now means you deal 100/150, or 2/3rd, or 66% less damage based on our standard Negative Melee Power formula of 100 / (100 - Power). -100 Melee Power means you deal half damage, etc.


  • Fixed an issue that caused the Warlock Soul Eater's Strickened Soul enhancement reduce Melee, Ranged, and Spell Power by far more than described.
  • Soul Eater's Inhuman Nature now increases Consume and Stricken damage by the proper amount.



  • Fixed an issue that could cause characters to get multiple copies of certain effects, causing "lag" when that character was examined.

Quests and Adventure Areas[edit]
