32 Dungeons & Dragons Online Reviews

  1. This game is very fun. I’ve been playing this for quite a while, created 3 characters, all customizable, and very flexible game. Ultra High graphics make it even better. I love this game and I recommend it to anyone.

    Cons: Takes a while to level, but that surpasses after you party up with people and just have fun.

    Other:
    If you get banned for 3 days for cussing or anything else, it will suspend chat after you’ve been suspended from DDO. I got into a fight, got banned for 3 days, and wasn’t able to chat with anyone for a week. I think I learned my lesson after 3 days, and a week without chat.

  2. Great game, a lot of free quests with regular updates with quests and content. Can buy more quests with Turbine points that can be earned in game. I was able to buy enough quests to get to cap with my free points as i waited for a 50% of sale on adventure packs. Progression is a little slow but questing with groups can be rewarding.

  3. One of the better games (if not among the best) in the genre.

    Combat
    The active, twitch-based combat really sets it apart from the others. This really is a nice break from all those auto-attack mmo’s out there. It doesn’t really follow the pnp ruleset but most actions do have (automated) dicerolls.

    Graphics
    Realistic graphics and really awesome when you have a comp that can handle hight graphics. Some of the locations are awesome (The plane of night or Amrath to name a few).

    Sound
    The music is kinda meh in this game and you won’t really notice it, but the ambient sounds are wonderful. Eery wailing sounds, dripping water, talking crowds,…there’s really a lot of detail here.

    Setting
    The setting is Eberron so expect a more adventurous, piratey mood. This is more like Indiana Jones meets steampunk meats fantasy. Currently, only the continent of X’endrik (and some interdimensional travel) are explored, giving Turbine carte blanche on storyline design.

    Customization
    Character customization is pretty good here, allowing a lot of options to change your character’s looks. But where it really shines is the way you create your skills, feats and stats, allowing for virtually infinite combinations. You can combine up to 3 different classes taking levels into each one as you go (Stuff like 14bard/4 barbarian/2 rogue), get to choose different feats, distribute your stats yourself,…
    I advise visiting the forums before attempting a custom character tho, as you need some expertise not to gimp yourself (yes, you can make a character that’s unplayable past a certain level).

    Quests
    These are instanced, so you won’t see other players while questing (except those in your party). Which means no boss camping, killstealing, …
    Every quest features an interesting storyline and some really have that dnd feel to them (especially Sorrowdusk).
    Raids are basically 12-man quests that are slightly longer than long quests (most of them) and feature special bosses and puzzles.
    Oh yeah, there are puzzles, from basic guide the light to the exit-puzzles to harder ones (like the Crucible).
    Another important part of the dungeons are traps, which can be disabled by anyone with rogue-skills that are high enough .

    Free to play?
    Yes. As all f2p Turbine games, cash shop points are earned in game to unlock all the content you’ll need for free. (Tho purely free players will have to grind for them.)

    Hints:
    -The best way to start out is by getting a character to 100 favor on each server, earning you a decent amount of tp while familiarizing yourself with the game.
    -Try out all classes, read up on them and find a good build for your first character
    -State upfront that you are new, so party leaders will know to watch you.
    -First things to buy in the ddo store is The vale of twilight adventure pack, which has 3 raids, 2 explorers and a few quests. It’ll allow you to reach cap and has the best gear in the game for most characters. A good buy after that is gianthold or the demon sands.
    -Do not buy: Drow, Veteran Status and 32pt-build as these are unlocked ingame.
    -Do not buy: Any of the other items in the store except adventure packs and account options.
    -Try to find a good guild. They are invaluable for information and help.

    1. hei how much network speed to run this game???
      can be used for 3,1 mbps??? or 11 mbps???

  4. this game is awesome :]

  5. Yes indeed ! to me , Dungeons and Dragons Online is the Best game I’ve Played so far in this genre Because it has :
    - an Interesting storyline
    - very very nice graphics
    - awesome sound effects , when you’re in a tavern you can hear people chatting and the sound of glasses and everything is awesome
    - Action Based Battle System
    - swiming ( :D )
    - and the most important thing is … DUNGEONS : I’ts really something different in this game , In other games dungeons are just a big grinding city where you kill mobs after mobs and get some coins after you get out BUT IN DDO every dungeon has a story and unlockables and secret stuff and a main goal ( free the prisoners , etc ) and optional goals and a boss and traps and everything !! even the cash shop points can be earned through normal gameplay !
    Really DDO Is a great game That you Must try

    The only bad thing that currently 99% of the updates are just cash shop sales and the major updates are kinda slow BUT :

    - No More Bullies
    - No More Grinding
    - No More Auto-attack
    - No More ” Go and kill this and gather that ” Quests
    ..really you must download DDO and you’ll never get bored !!

    1. LOL oh no!!! I’ve been called out!I did look at the DDO site, and it does look seinreittng (though I also read the forums and saw a lot of the complaints too), but I just don’t have access to the computer often enough to make it worthwhile. And it won’t play on our laptop (which is over 5 years old).The way it is now, the only time I could regularly play would be Saturday and Sunday mornings.I promise that, if we ever buy another laptop that’s more up to date and can handle it, I will play whatever you’re playing at the time (DDO or whatever new thing comes along). As long as it’s free.How does that sound?

  6. I enjoyed playing this game a LOT but the problem was there was no one to play with. My friends got very bored with the game and stopped playing. You can hire people to work with but it’s just not the same and I got incredibly tired of telling the healer to heal me when I was close to death in dungeons. The game play is very engaging, the characters are wonderfully customizable (even though they have some of the same looks from LotRO :/ )

    This game is very well worth a try but I found the community (in my personal experience, this could very well have been a server thing or even a time frame for me, I do not know or would even try to say it will be the same for all) very lacking and had to stop playing as it felt like a single player for me.

  7. Great game nice graphics and all other stuff chillex man… WOOD
    i am download it now exiting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111

    my name is on dungeons and dragons online Moltak

  8. love this game and mostly the combat.
    this is the first game where i dont stand and click skills.
    yeah the most updates are p2p but you can buy some adventure packs if you just play.

    but all that is already said

    SO just awesome from me

  9. one of the best mmorpg hack and slash games i have ever played (better than vindictus cuz u dont have to repeat dungeons) however the exp rate is slow and it feels like forever to level up other than that its a must try mmorpg

  10. This, other than being a rather slow-leveling game, is an extremely fun game. Based off of the Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 ruleset and the Eberron world, it all comes together to have something like your classic elf wizard and dwarf cleric standing next to a robot(Warforged) bard and a halfing monk, while still feeling distinctly fantasy. Although some class combinations might not work, being able to have “custom” characters stand next to single class characters and have both contribute well is absolutely beautiful.

    The dungeons themselves are worth exploring, and trying to do in different ways, from finding optional bosses, to getting unusual experience bonuses (for example, clearing a dungeon without killing anything), which creates a system that benefits both people who rush and people who poke at every little thing.

    The cash shop is completely unneeded for the purpose of advancing, especially with people getting currency for just playing, and getting some features on a server just by playing (without spending the cash currency), but also being worth it if you decide that Turbine does deserve some money for what they’ve done, and kept going.

    The only flaws is the relatively easy capability of building a gimped character (with even some prebuilt paths being considered gimp), and a poor PvP system, at least for 1v1 situations. Finding groups that don’t rush dungeons can also be very hit or miss, but hirelings do actually work very well for this.

  11. Ive played this game for years. Not the online one but the pen and paper one, and it is very good. This online game seems based off the 3.0 or 3.5 edition builds of D&D. It is very good and I’ve been playing for a while now, its a great game and i would defenatly recomaned it.
    This game is not a solo game, all the classes have many different ways to build them from rogues that can tank to ones that can dodge every thing and so forth for every class. Mages can be mellee chars easily or be pure mages.
    All through korthos the first island you can solo to get a hang on the game if youd like but once your in Harbor (Storm reach) you should look for partys heavily it will help tons.
    Most quests have multiple difs, and the game is set so that if you cant do certain things you simply cant win on the harder difs. This is not a draw back its a plus it forces people to really consider how to build there char and to work with others.
    Main draw back is simply that you need the Adventure packs to really get far if your free to play other than that it does take long to lv but since the caps 20 its defenatly understandable.

    Well i could say more but getting tired of just repeating others so peace guys.

    1. hei sir you know how much speed of network neede to run this great game?

  12. one of the better games….

  13. its a really relly great game. and enjoy it a lot
    but its relly really hard to find some ppl to party up with because most people are a little too serieus about it. and if i ask for someone to party up with me or help me with a dungeon they always say.
    no srry im busy.

    BUT. i had a party once with a 25 year old teacher and a 20 guy who spoke via the mic
    we had some awesome and great adventures but i never saw them again. after the (bat dungeon).
    i do strongly recommend this game to people who want to do something fun with their friends.

  14. Fun game with lots of fun people, only thing that I don’t like is the P2P systems… for me i can’t touch the p2p stuff only f2p

  15. For starters, this review is coming from someone who has never touched pen-and-paper D&D.

    DDO is EASILY one of the best MMORPGs you will find. Customization is fantastic, help is easy to come by in-game, and the ability to choose difficulties for each instance is very helpful for new players or soloists. F2P is very limited compared to P2P, but being able to unlock various quests, races, or classes via gameplay and earning points to spend in the Turbine store is extremely helpful.

    This game is the only game I have ever paid money for. I am a big F2P gamer, but my dedication to DDO led me to purchasing a full VIP subscription of it. The sheer amount of content I unlocked made the decision extremely worth it. DDO is a game I continuously return to after a several-month-long break and it’s a game I am comfortable playing and experimenting with, no matter the race or class I choose.

    I HEAVILY recommend everyone new or experienced with MMORPGs giving DDO a try. I played it with friends who ran their own D&D campaigns, even if I didn’t myself, and we all had a blast. It’s a game anyone can get into and get a good feel for with little effort. Even with its little quirks some people might find now and then, I cannot possibly praise it enough.

  16. this is my first ever MMORPG game ever. i have a really good time plying it for 3 years, met some good people, had extra time. i know that game is most p2p, with little of f2p content. i didnt spend a coin on it, and i still managed to unlock most of the content. the thing that i like about the game is that it requiers to ply in partyes, that i like the most! u get to talk with others, have fun. i played before a NWN 1 and 2, so i like this game system a lot.

    over the years i think that playerbase is decreased, but i havent plyed it for about a year now, so it might get better times now

    but sadly i am plying on a old laptop, and game get (i atleast think of) some new grafic update, so now it is unplayable for me any more.

    i recomend everyone to try this game out.

  17. whatever happened to the old pen and paper D&D

    1. Trust me, people still play pen and paper D&D all the time. Check and see if there’s a local game store in your area, and check in to see if there are any games that meet up there. :)

  18. I’ve tried a couple of other systems and reluctantly tried this one after reading mixed reviews of it. From the start its very easy to get into and in truth I solo’d with my first character until he was level 12, then I kind of fell into my first party and never looked back. The grouping system is very simple and generally there’s always groups up for running all kinds of quests. Most are pretty reasonable people and they are happy to play with experienced and inexperienced alike.

    Like most games there are always a few exceptions and ddo is no different, you will find some who hate people who dont know every quest inside out, and others who aim to run quests as quickly as possible to maximise xp. But on the whole its a good community (i can only speak for Ghallanda server but I expect the others are very similiar) and has players from all over the world.

    The character progression is easy, the quests for the most part are fun (one or two are, well, not popular) and the loot is always sellable if nothing else. If you have a mic there are plenty who voice chat, equally you can type away.

    The game is open to playing any way you want and any time you want and that really is a great way to game these days. Some evenings I’m running with americans, canadians, australians etc, guilds are easy to join and some are really really helpful, others are just banded together to get a ship and some bonuses.

    You can add friends as you go along and you will keep coming into contact with players over the months as you realise bit by bit that the game is addictive.

    I vip it now through choice, but had a lot of fun f2p and would recommend it anyone and everyone – it really does have something for all.

    oh, and for the purists, yes I paper roleplay and no, this doesnt really follow the game mechanics, just sort of plays lip service, but then again, it just wouldnt work anywhere near as well if it tried to.

    Try it, its free to try, what do you have to lose?

  19. Extremely different to level up and lonely if you dont know anyone. been level 16 for a week

  20. when your hate asia games, go and join good game

  21. on top of the extremely slow leveling becoming super expensive to play this free game. every week it seems this game throws out some new content i can’t have as a free player

    1. Yeah, this is one expensive game. $30 for the expansion (Not included for monthly subscribers) and total hours of play for each expansion (about 5-30). OUCH!!!

  22. It’s a great game but I’m having trouble adding friends to my game because it won’t recognize the names.. Help anyone??

  23. is this mac compatible?

  24. are you able to play with other players in the world

  25. A good game. Currently suggest server Galland as lots of people both newer and experienced and is quite friendly. Other servers might be better depending on timezone and if prefer more roleplaying or if powergamer.
