From DDO wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Here are the Release Notes for Update 42.4.1, released on Thursday, August 15th.

News and Notes[edit]


  • Bravery Bonus is now tracked separately across Heroic and Epic difficulties. This means that if you play a dungeon on Heroic Elite, you will be able to acquire the Epic Elite Bravery Bonus if you play that same dungeon again in Epic levels.
  • Bravery Bonus range in Epics is now +4 rather than +2 of the Base quest level. Players above the +4 range will receive half of their Bravery Bonus. This functions just like the Bravery Bonus range in Heroics, but with an expanded range.
  • Optional Objective's Experience Rewards now ransack at a slower rate:
    • The first, second, and third time you achieve an optional objective, you will receive 100% of the experience.
    • The fourth time you achieve an optional objective, you will receive 80% of the experience.
    • Fifth: 60%
    • Sixth: 40%
    • Seventh: 20%
    • Eighth: 0%
    • Optional Objective ransack does not reset over time. An Epic, Racial, True, or Iconic Reincarnation will reset your Optional Objective ransack.
  • All current Optional Objective Ransack has been reset. Players after this patch will begin as if they had not previously completed any optional objectives on their current life.
  • The base experience of the quest Tower of Frost has been raised from 3062 to 6540.
  • The Daily Bonus in Epics has been raised by +10%, for a total of 40% for Epics.



  • One of the new Reapers has had its name corrected.


  • Corrected an issue that prevented users of the legacy Mac client from launching the game. Note: The current Mac client can be downloaded here
