8/10 – Eurogamer
“The goal of D&D Online: Stormreach was to recreate the heady thrill of a well-sculpted dungeon crawl in mom's basement, and to that end, Turbine has succeeded beyond expectations.”

I decided to change my mind after the recent patch. I am recommending this game to everyone who enjoys very complex MMORPGs with endless content and endless character build possibilities.
The game started out with great free content. A lot of pay to play content was added but everytime they update the game they always add new free content. You can earn everything without paying if you farm for turbine points(there are plenty of guides out there).
If you want to jump right in with spending some money, go on their website and purchase the menace of the underdark complete expansion pack. That is all you need to buy with real money, with all the TP you earn buy vale of twilight and the necropolis 4 adventure packs.
Just like other games they also have cool cosmetics you can purchase and some give you buffs.
Guilds in the game get Boats/ships that soar through the skys and sometimes if you look up you can see them.

Compared to WoW they do have a druid class which has the most spells in the game.
Everything in the game is rolled in realtime and the better gear you get improves rolls.
Some of the named loot in this game will literally take years to obtain, so it is a very hardcore game.
There are wilderness areas in the game so you don't have to spend all your time doing quests for experience.
If anyone wants to or is already playing on Ghallanda join the steam group. http://steamcommunity.com/groups/DDOGLand

This is a fun game. However, it is far past its prime. The more they do to it the worse the game gets. They added a real money auction house (using astral shards, which you have to pay real money for or earn slowly by getting other people's paid-for astral shards by selling them stuff on it). The game lags terribly. The game has bugs almost as old as the game itself, and every new update gets worse. It just isn't worth your time nad money. I should know, I spent too much of both on it!

"stay close to the edge, don't go into the middle of the floor...", rapidly types our Cleric as we approach an apparently harmless room. But i read it to late. I've seen the sparkling chest nestled enticingly in an alcolve directly opposite our position and i rush towards it. Stupid. The floor collapses and i fall into the misty chamber below. There are bones strewn around the room and then suddenly an elite level scorpian erupts from the ground and immediately attacks me. The rest of my group - my guild mates - leap heroically into the chamber and we engage the beast together and manage to bring it down. "we can't get that chest now, there is no way back up", says the same Cleric. "sorry" i say, and imagine my character, head hung in shame, shuffling his feet. "no problem :)" says the Cleric. My Ranger searches the room and finds the lever that opens the chamber. A gloomy tunnel stretches into the distance. We heal up then move on.

This is what D&D Online is all about and when it is at its best. The game has a number of large open hub areas but the missions will almost certainly lead you underground into a dark cavern or muggy sewer. In the hubs you can find group members, hire mercernary's, prurchase healing scrolls and potions, and upgrade gear and equipment, before venturing into the dangers below. Some quests ask you to clear out an infestation of spiders/kobolds/etc, normlly with larger, more dangerous boss type near the end, whilst others may ask you to rescue a merchant's daughter or find a precious artifact. Throughout these dungeons there is the possibility of finding rare monsters with epic loot, normally only found by finding a hidden door or secret area, but only if you or one of your group has the riht skills. This is a game that rewards exploration, that encourages group play, and grabs wholeheartdly at that inner fantasy nerd that exists in so many of us.

As a solo experience this is a lesser game. You can clear same level content no problem, even an elite dungeon or two with the right equipment and merc's, but the exprience feels lonely and more shallow on your own.

The game truely shines as a multiplayer experience, which, to be fair, is exactly how the game is intended to be.

I can over look the aged graphics and tired engine for the wonderful frill of descending into the deaths of an undead crypt with a group of likeminded advnturers. Most stuff is decided on invisible dice rolls and armor/will saves just like (almost) the tabletop game, but the combat has a degree of twitch and you can dodge incoming attacks with a well timed double tap. When you find a loot chest automtic rolls take place and loot is devidied up accordingly but you can transfer items to another group member if you want to.

The community is very friendly and I was soon in a really helpful high level guild (this brings loads of perks to experience gains and buffs) and there nevr seems to be shortage of people to go questing with.

Much like LOTRO the whole game is F2P with the need to buy quest packs for additonal content or unlocks for certain race/class types. It is fair to say that you will likely need to pnd a few quid t some point to advance th whole experience but the good thing is this can be done at your leisure and if you done wan to then, well, dont.

I for one applaud this style of F2P model and for a game that provides this much AAA fun I had not issue with spending money on it - i just purchased all of the DLC for just over £14 in the sale and thats good value by any standard.

If you like D&D, fantasy, and group style play then i can highly recommend this game. If you don't or are looking for another WOW style experience then keep looking. D&D online isnt trying to be WOW or Guildwars and I am glad of that.

As an fantasy adventure maker this game is top notch and you should certainly give it a whirl - 8.8/10

As a fan of Dungeons & Dragons since I first learned to play from my Uncle when I was young I was excited to play this online addaptation of the classic Paper/Pencil Tabletop game. With that said please allow me to give you my sincere opinion on this game as a fan of the D&D tabletop franchise as well as a big time MMO player.

The classic D&D atmosphere is here and the story can be interesting as long as you read the text and follow your missions

The classes and races have the potential to be fun to play but not all of them are available unles you pay for the game or use hardearned ingame credit to buy them.

Partying up with friends and/or family to play is a lot of fun but not solo (why play a multiplayer game to be alone)

The community seems friendly enough so far but I will have to continue to play some more before I judge anything to much.

There are a few lag/glitch issues to be careful of (i.e. My cousin and My Uncle were playing with me and an enimies Debuff blinded our entire party but when the spell wore off of the rest of them my screen was still all black from the spell. Funny at first though it quickly turned to a major anoyance that eventually pissed me off to the point where the game was no longer fun and I quit.) I have run into a few other bad ones like that on my own and in parties but most are small and not game changing.

I am going to recommend this game to fans of fanasy based games and to people new to D&D but for those of you who have played the Paper/Pencil game stick to it...there is way more oppertunity to be creative with your Character as well as the world and story you play in. And for those of you playing other MMOs there are better ones out there than this one but if you have not already been sucked into another one this may be a great place to start.

5.5/10 on Gameplay
3/10 on Content (6/10 if you are a paying member)
7/10 on Story

-it's actually massivelly pay to play. It's basically unplayable without vip status (15/month)
-dead game, dead community
+amazing skill trees, allows for all sorts of flavour builds, probably more than any other mmo
+what remains of the community is p chill
+game is mostly instanced, so the adventures/quests are much more interesting than your average mmos
+mountains of voice acting if you have vip

The best way to play this game would be two people getting membership and dicking around with builds and doing coop. Don't go into this game solo or if spending 15-30 dollars a month is too much.

Across steam and my normal play i've only got around 1,000 hours in the game but I really enjoyed it.

If your a big fan of fantasy RPG this is the grandaddy of them all, you will need lots of time to fully enjoy, im at over 3000 hours and still loving it. the biggest draw for me is that it has no end. If your the kind of player that enjoys the journey this is for you.

A fantastic take on DDO based in Eberron lore, They recently tied it in with the Forgotten Realms with the Underdark Adventure Pack. Very in depth character creation stats wise. Not very many options to customize your toons look though. All bodies are the same pretty much. Definitely some of the best dungeon crawls and seasonal events. not much in the way of pvp though. Highly recommended.

This is the best game to try if you want to play a thief. You can do a lot free to play but I recomend getting one of the starter packs. Ten bucks goes a long way.

First off, the Mac client has some serious technical problems. It wouldn't even install on my system (OS X 10.9.5), apparently due to some problems with the third-party downloader...which I don't see a reason for even including, given that Steam downloads all 8 GB worth of game content anway. So I haven't been able to run it at all in Steam, but the Windows version runs fine in Wineskin.

- The game captures a surprising amount of the feel of actually playing D&D. There's DM narration during quests, a lot of the mechanics from the tabletop game are included, and you have to do more than just kill monsters. There are spot checks to find hidden doors, traps to avoid, NPCs to bluff and even some puzzles to solve.

- Soloing is supported more than in most MMOs.

- Most of the game content is instanced: the only public areas are the towns, and most of the quests take place in instanced areas with a linear narrative. As a result, there are way fewer "kill 20 zebras" or "collect 10 rocks" quests than you might expect in an MMO.

- It's free, so if you hate it, you're not out anything more than the couple hours it takes to download.

- There are a TON of options for building a character (three trees per class and multiclassing), although several classes are behind pay walls.

- The graphics and interface are really dated, and the voice acting is pretty bad.

- The player base is small.

- The downside of the character customization freedom and the jillions of different numbers brought over from the tabletop game is that the mechanics are really complicated. I imagine (I haven't gotten anywhere near endgame) that optimizing a character for raiding would be REALLY hard.

- There's a lot of pay-wall stuff that pops up right out of the gate. Want to have more than two characters? Pay up. Want to play a monk? Pay up. Want to res after you die? Pay up.

love it, it has great rpg mechanics and does not confine you to a linier story line. it conjures up memories of when i played D&D and it also remindes me of my warcraft days but well im still playing that. definatly download it because it is worth it. it is free to play but there are extra mechanics you could buy including classes, pets, titles, and best of all, ♥♥♥♥ing airships.

Bottom line (at the top): It's ok, I'd recommend it because I enjoy it, but you need to be able to see through the WoW-ification of a decent D&D game.

I've got mixed feelings about this game, perhaps that's why I keep coming back to it. Essentially what happens is every 2 or 3 months Turbine releases an update that either completely alters the gameplay experience or breaks 3 or 4 old quests (or both), and they slowly hotfix about 50-75% of it (I've seen a Level 2 quest that's been around since before I started playing being unavailable for an ENTIRE update period!), and then they release a new update. As for gameplay, it's ok as far as D&D-based TPHSMMORPGS's go.

Lack of proper support and lousy management decisions aside, the community is good, the fanbase is awesome and there's something to do for every non-epic level (1-20) without having to pay for anything.

If you like D&D-based games that have gone off-track a little (think in the direction of WoW), this may be the time sink you need. Otherwise, there's tons of other (more populated) MMO's that might suit your fancy.

First things first: I really like DDO. The time displayed doesn't nearly reflect the time I've spent on this game, just add a good ~3,000 hours and it might be right.

I like it in spite of the following:

- There are still bugs in the game, that have been known for years. (After seven years, there was a kind of unofficial celebration of the infamous "ladder bug" on the forums. I think I'd be sad if they fixed it someday.)

- The new shard exchange (read: we want your real money) dealt the death blow to the ingame currency.

- The player base has been eroding for years now and new players a rare sight.

- If you can't find a group / guild to join, you'll have a hard time (read: die a lot) as a new player.

- If you have never before played D&D, you will ♥♥♥♥ up on character creation the first time around. And the second time and the third time,... can you notice a pattern?

- If you have played D&D before, you will ♥♥♥♥ up on character creation, the first time around. And then the second and third time... but you will notice your mistakes earlier.

- There are tons of low to mid-level quests but hardly any F2P-quests in endgame.

- No, sadly it's not really like pen and paper D&D. Then again, I can't imagine how to make that fly as an MMORPG.

(- How to put this gently: Some people will instantly hate DDO upon reading this paragraph. Why? There is no PvP to speak of. PvP only exist if you want to participate, but it's useless. DDO's character classes are based on the pen and paper version of D&D 3.5. Meaning, the classes are supposed to support each other in combat against enemies, not against each other. No matter how often you throw your virtuoso-skilled Bard against my Wizard, you're toast. If you want PvP and can't have fun in a game without bushwhacking other players' characters, go somewhere else.)

I like DDO because of the following:

- In fact I like this game so much, I've even started to like it's bugs and there are plenty of those. Some are frustrating while others are hilarious and none of them game breaking. Yep, that's a pro for me.
- Nice crafting system - or more precisely - systems, as there are roughly ten diffferent crafting systems around. If you've got enough time or money or capable and nice friends / guild members, you'll have decent gear pretty soon.
- Once you know how to look for a group it's easy to find one. If you ask nicely, the other members of your new group will probably slow down and explain why they are doing what they are doing and may even act as tour guides during quests.
- The game is heavily instanced which I happen to like.
- While it is easy to ♥♥♥♥ up on character creation, there is plenty of information on the forums how not to. Make no mistake, your first character will be utterly incompetent. If trying, testing and scrapping different builds of characters translates to "fun" for you, this is your game. You'll hardly find a game that gives you more freedom to create your character.
- Yes, you can spend money on the game. I certainly did over the years but you don't have to. If you've got the time or patience you can farm enough of the shop currency "Turbine Points" to buy everything you need. And you'll simply earn those points by just playing.
- The graphics are older but still decent enough.
- No involuntary PvP. If you like really well done PvE though, give DDO a try.
- If you need advice or help ingame, just go into the next tavern (because players idle there to regenerate and have some spare time on their hands) and ask. Send someone you see with "wings" left and right of their character's name a polite /tell and chances are good you'll get your answer or a hint where to look.
- Huge amount of freedom when it comes to character builds, I cannot emphasise this enough.
- Active combat! You might even have to use your brain sometimes. Just standing around while spamming attacks and holding everything on cooldown is not how combat works in DDO.
- Always new and fun ways to die. Did you know that the teleport spell comes with the possibility of depositing you a few hundred metres above the marketplace? Hope you remember where your Ring of Feather Fall is while panicking.

I have to admit, that the game is past it's prime but it has aged well. You certainly should give it a try if you are into D&D. After all, it's F2P.

I personally love it... Good ole' classic. However, playing this by yourself is not the greatest... Playing with friends is relatively fun however, I could play it for hours with friends.

Not your average skill-spamming auto-attacking MMORPG because this one usualy requires thought before action. Definetely reccommended for bored-of-the-usual-MMO gamers and people willing to get into MMORPG's ;)

40 hours on Steam + at least 3,000 in its own launcher.

The goods:
This game has loads of great aspects to it, ranging from group questing to a 'True Reincarnation' mechanic allowing for endless play.
The party questing allows for some easier playthroughs of the harder quests in the game at low levels and even when you hit the heroic level cap. Each player gets their own loot from chests which can be switched around and given to others via the chest's item drop-down menu allowing for some Bound to Account/Character items to be traded before they're claimed.
The leveling system in this game is real easy to learn but very complex and detailed when you truely understand it allowing for pretty much any combination of classes that don't clash to work. There are thousands of custom player-made builds to try on the forums which give you an edge over a standard build. Being able to combine up to 3 classes will also give you an edge too. Want to play as a caster but still be able to disable traps? No problem! Combine Wizard and Rogue for the easiest of them all.
The True Reincarnation mechanic of this game allows for endless play, as once you hit the heroic level cap of 20 you unlock the ability to remake your character with benefits. You gain +4 points for your build from Adventurer to Hero, +2 from Hero to Legend and it caps at 36. Champion characters will only gain a +2 stat boost going into Hero as they already start at 32 points. Each time you True Reincarnate (TR), you gain extra abilities based on your previous life. For example, if you were a Barbarian in your last life, you gain 10 HP. All passive past life feats stack up to 3 times. Also, you can take an 'Active' past life feat which allows for extra boosts ingame such as Barbarian's 'Berserker's fury' past life feat allowing you to use a Rage like ability in which a Barbarian has as a different class.
Heroic and Epic levels are a fairly new feature of DDO which has only really come around in the past few years and is still massively developing. Now the level cap has been raised to 28 allowing for more Feats and Stats to be gained, giving an even greater advantage over your enemies in quests. With this came a new item system that has 4 different tiers of loot for Heroic and Epic quests. These items are paired with the difficulty they were looted in, giving boosts greater if the difficulty was too.
This is an EXCELLENT F2P game as you NEVER have to buy anything in the game if you decide you don't want to, as you get 'Favor' for completing quests which in turn grants you 'Turbine Points' to spend in the store.

The bads:
DDO has a lot of flaws in its own right, but none more than your average MMORPG. It's always going to have bugs which the community are always trying to stamp out through the use of the public beta test client, Lamannia.
DDO IS a pay2win game. You'll never get to level 28 at the current state of the game unless you get some of the epic-level addon content.

Although there may seem more good points than bad, you'll find a lot more yourself from just playing in both aspects. Each person has their own preference of games and whats in them and I love DDO because it's a group-based game. You'll find it much easier to complete quests and objectives if you team up with 5 other people. DDO is an ever-expanding game which is currently on its 25th major update excluding patches for bugs. I could write an essay that makes A Song of Ice and Fire look small and easy to read on whats great and what sucks about the game, but nobody would want to read it. I'd be surprised if people actually read this far into my review. Anyway, going off on a tangent, the game is amazing if you like to team up with friends to go on an epic adventure through the levels, facing different enemies on the way from slimy, annoying ooze monsters that love to break your weapons to Acid-breathing dragons and much more.

I'd give this game a rating of 7.5 out of 10, as it still has a long way to go to be able to catch up with the major MMOs such as Guild Wars 2 and World of Warcraft. On the other hand, it holds its own playstyle I've yet to see in any other MMO of group-based questing from the start.

If you do decide to play the game, Cannith is a great server! Thousands of players always willing to help you, all you need to do is ask. Just remember, asking around for help in the starter area won't get you far, you have to venture out into the world.

Hope to see you in-game soon! ^_^

Awesome game.
See that large number on the time played above? Yeah that has only been since it got on Steam.

Yes the graphics are dated and some of the base D&D mechanics are creaking under the weight of all the add-ons done over the years. Most of the problems with mechanics tend to show up at the upper level ranges (20+)

Many of the recent adjustments to classes has taken some of the difficulty edge off of the lower levels as power creep has reared its head.

For the absolute best DDO experience:
get 3-4-5 friends that have zero experience playing. Have everyone go through the tutorial (it is solo only).
Set up a schedule of play time and request that no one plays at all outside of the group time, no spoilers!
Dont go read about how best to play the game or the best builds , etc.
The exploration and learning on your own when it is all fresh to the whole crew is priceless.

Some dungeons have you thinking with your fighter ,barbarian or sorcerer you are the baddest MoFo ever.
Next dungeon you are cheering on the rogue who is sneaking around a room full of big, bad Ogres, that would squash him in no time flat if they see him/her, picking up the soul stones(dead PCs) of the entire party to take them back to the shrine to be raised from the dead.

Lots to do as free to play so no need to pull out the CC right away.
If you follow the above plan for best experience by time you get to where you feel the 'need' to pay, you will gladly be screaming "take my money, now!"

One word of caution about making characters;
Many of the older dungeons have the unfortunate MMO min/maxer design problem.
You will run in to somethings that require X Strength score to open or Y skill points to trick an NPC will seem really high.
The desiginers couldn't make the stat requirements too low where a balanced character could complete with out making things trivial for the min/maxers.

Just keep that in mind when building that maxing or nearly maxing your primary ability scores is suggested and likewise it is better to have a few skills that are maxed rather than a bunch of skills with low investment.

Still haven't experienced anything quite like it after years and years I still keep playing.
Noobstyle with friends is the best but super deep to keep even power gamers happy for a long, long time.

This was the pinnacle of MMORPG for me several years ago. I recently started again, and it's still just as good.

If you thought WoW was good, then this is the free-er, better-looking, more fun version of it. The loot system is fun. The fact that it rolls for certain activities just like regular DnD is amazing. Play this game. It is worth the $0.

Dungeons & Dragons Online from Turbine is a solid game. Different from Turbine's Lotro but still great enough to keep you coming back... :)

It's DND with out the books and the game is the DM, dice roll's done in a flash and the game plays like a real time RPG action, but its totaly the original paper game, its awsome! I know this sounds hard to belive but its true. this is classic pen and paper DnD the Video Game MMO.
