Here are the release notes for Update 63: Illithid Invasion, released on Wednesday, November 1st, 2023.

Of Special Note: The Illithid Invasion begins![edit]

From the vastness of the Astral Plane, an ancient hunger descends upon Eberron...

Take part in a one-time event across Dungeons & Dragons Online! The game needs YOUR help to stop the Illithid Invasion! Powerful and unusual Illithids are on the prowl throughout the world. Update 63: Illithid Invasion is a limited time event in which you'll scour Reaper difficulty dungeons throughout the game to locate these powerful invaders! Defeating these threats unlocks new quests that hold the key to ending their sinister plan! The dungeons stick around after the event, but the invasion starts November 1st!

As part of Update 63 players can unlock four extreme challenge dungeon quests:

These quests are all level 34 and only available on Legendary difficulty. Speak to a Twelve wizard named Omryn Cedarbrook in the Clifftop Tower District of Sharn to learn more! Other NPCs will be located near Omryn as the dungeons become available.

News and Notes:[edit]

The Deck of Many Curses[edit]

Collect cards to make Decks, then use those decks to apply mysterious Curses to your equipment! Cards from the Deck of Many Curses can appear in end chests throughout Update 63's Illithid Invasion quests.

  • Once you have enough cards, click on a card to open a UI that allows you to turn 12 of each card type into a Deck!
  • Cards are unbound, and Decks are Bound to Account.
  • Click on a Deck to open a UI that allows you to add a random effect to an item of your choice! The item must be unequipped.
  • Adding a Deck effect to your item does not impact its minimum level or ability to be equipped.
  • A special Card of Curse Cleansing can appear very rarely in almost any chest throughout the game! This card removes an applied Curse from the Deck of Many Curses to an item, allowing the item to receive another Deck effect.
  • Deck effects cannot be placed onto Cosmetics, Wands, Scrolls, Quivers, or Ammunition.
