The Lord of the Rings Online got a producer’s letter yesterday. Today, it’s Turbine’s other MMO’s turn.

Dungeons & Dragons Online Executive Producer Robert “Severlin” Ciccolini posted the 2015 plans for DDO on the forums today, as well as a look back at 2014’s highlights. A level cap increase, all the way up to 30, as well as a new class, the warlock, are in the works, as is the DDO adaptation of the classic old-school dungeon Temple of Elemental Evil.

There’s also a new kind of loot on the horizon, Mysterious Fragments, which will drop from extra-powerful Monster Champions and can be used to barter for all sorts of different rewards from NPC groups. Interestingly, the letter states that “As factions vie for power some agents and rewards might change as the year progresses.” Finally, a new storyline and adventure pack will take players to Shavarath and the Vales of Twilight to “prevent a catastrophe.”

DDO fans, what looks like the best to you?

    Man, I used to LOVE this game and play it so so frequently. I had a sub and everything. I’m glad to see it’s still going but I haven’t been able to get back into it, mostly due to the changes that have been made since I played making it not feel the same…

    But yeah, to REALLY play it you have to be willing to fork out money or do some serious grinding for the Turbine points. So unless you have cash to spare or lots of patience it might be best to give DDO a pass.

    I played the heck out of this game and took several toons to cap, prob is you can get any of the good gear w/o paying for adventure packs and there are a ton o those, that being said I have most of them and realy loved the game but hate the new skill tree so don’t play anymore.

    I don’t really see the point? I mean..why would I want to play an MMO with all the grinding and nonsense it entails just for the temple of elemental evil..when I can play the actual D&D PC game Temple of Elemental Evil? This puzzles me as much as neverwinter’s ‘icewind dale’ expansion..

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
