Just a random question...is anyone going to do the beta for D&D online? Is anyone actually going to play? I'm on WoW right now, and I juts don;t knwo if I want to buy it and try it out. Its either going to rock or suck. According to Penny Arcade there arnt even any dragons in it.

(sorry if this wasnt D&D related enough, since it wasnt about an actual campaign)

I watched a friend play part of the beta. I can't really say anything about it because of the NDA, but let it just be said that I won't be rushing right out to buy it unless I hear of a lot of things recieving attention.

What is character development like? I'm worried its going to be crappy and such. :( That is if you can discuss it :D

the NDA has been lifted (see the corresponding penny arcade comic)

NDA = non-disclosure agreement? ;)

I wasn't impressed with the DDO game. It had some things that were really nice and exciting (the way that they captured character classes, the fact that you can use any item on any class ... but you gee minuses on some things, and the fact that any character can become any class)

but they have a lot of things that they need to really improve upon (the colors were all blending together ... very drab, the whole game is instance based ... you don't have any free exploring outside of any dungeons, and it was kind of hard to find the people that give out some quests and all)

On dragons, they're a fat bundle of complicated rules in the game normally, I imagine it might take a good deal of extra work to get them to operate faithfully in an MMORPG. And it's set in Eberron, right? Dragons are pretty reclusive there anyhow.

CorellianJedi made it, I got it from one of the firefly icon communities.

#1: Level cap at 10.

#2: No Druids or Monks at this point (more than likely due to possible multi-class exploitation)

#3: No PrCs.

Why spend all that time attempting to develop a character when you'll have to remake it anyway when the limits are removed? Seems pointless. Players should -never- be used as test subjects.

I also want them to add shifters and changelings. Those are both uniquely eberron. Adding PRC's would help it out too.

It just felt kinda low key. Now granted I'm used to city of heroes, with ultimate expandability, but it seems ..mild maybe? There just wasn't that much to do... lots of travelling, very limited item scope. I imagine it will be fun, but I'm going to wait until they work out all the bugs before getting involved.

Yeah, one of my friends also mentioned/was complaining about how there weren't any prestige classes, and I have to agree.

I might try someone else's copy just to see what it's like, but I'm unlikely to actually buy it because I don't really like Eberron much.
