'Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach' Gets Content Update #6

by Rainier on Jan. 30, 2008 @ 10:48 a.m. PST

Adventurers have long travelled to the shrouded continent of Xen'drik to explore ancient ruins and discover the treasures hidden beneath. The bustling frontier city of Stormreach, a cauldron of ambition and secret plots, has grown on the edges of this dark and dangerous continent, safe and secure as the gateway to Xen'drik. But now danger threatens. Few explorers who set out adventuring the lands near Stormreach ever return, and those that do bring back only tales of death and destruction.

“The Thirteenth Eclipse offers an enormous amount of content for DDO players,” said Kate Paiz, Senior Producer of DDO. “We are really excited with how far DDO has come since we launched almost two years ago, and we have big plans for the game in the coming year.”

The Thirteenth Eclipse continues Turbine’s commitment to delivering compelling new content to its subscribers. This latest update features several new adventure areas with exciting challenges. Advanced players can now achieve 16th level, unlocking more powerful abilities, spells, feats and skills to tackle over 12 new monster classes that have been added to the game. New dungeons also await the heroes of the Eberron world, culminating in an extensive 12-player raid!

New content features :

  • New Landscape: Players can now explore three new areas of Stormreach including The Twelve, a series of floating towers, Meridia, an Eladrin enclave and the Vale of Twilight a huge explorable region with four distinct areas filled with quests to challenge high-level players.
  • Increased Level Cap: Players can now advance to 16th-level under the D&D® rules. This includes access to 8th-level arcane and divine spells (Polar Ray, Sunburst, Firestorm, Trap the Soul, and more), new character abilities, feats, and skills.
  • 12-player Raid: DDO’s biggest and best raid yet calls on players to weather waves of devils from Shavarath, solve intriguing puzzles and battle several uniquely powered lieutenants across five distinct regions to face Arraetrikos, a huge red-winged menace with plans to conquer Xen’drik.
  • Prototype Crafting System: The new crafting system opens up new possibilities to turn unused items into something exciting using The Eldritch Device and one of over 1000 recipes.

DDO recreates the essence of the classic pen-and-paper roleplaying experience with an emphasis on quests that provide a unique, immersive experience for each player. Authentic features in DDO include customizable characters; handcrafted dungeons filled with devious traps; monsters and stories from the Eberron campaign setting; an on-screen 20-sided die; and a dungeon master. DDO represents a new paradigm for the massively multiplayer online game genre with features, including solo and party-based quests, integrated voice chat, real-time active combat, PvP and award-winning graphics. DDO is a unique experience where players must use their combat skills and wits to survive dangerous dungeons, fiendish traps, and foes that punish the foolish. DDO seamlessly combines the beautiful world of Eberron, the classic D&D v3.5 rules, and the latest innovations in online technology into a breathtaking gaming experience.
