Useful links for new players in DDO:Eberron Unlimited

 

Since DDO can be pretty hard for new players I’ve made a list of links that can be usefull for people trying the game now when it’s going to be re-released. Feel free to post more links so I can add them to the list!

Here's a VERY good resource for you:

compendium.ddo.com/wiki/Compendium_Home

 

I especially encourage you to review that section:

compendium.ddo.com/wiki/Category:Character_Attributes

 

And if you're just starting to experiment, without much D&D knowledge, this is a must:

    Thanks for doing this Papadam .

    And here's site in-production for POLISH players of D&D Online:

    www.ddoworld.pl

    www.forum.ddoworld.pl

    It's only forum to date, but there you can join my guild or various others, discuss many D&D Online aspects, builds, classess, ask for help in Polish. I've joined ddoworld team recently, and I'm going to help them.

    Ah, someone made mistake in that banner - it's not going to be WORD of DDO but WORLD .

    Zapraszam! ;)

    Yeah, thanks for posting something so useful.

     

    I will be joining the game with the new release. I've always wanted to try the game, but never had a good excuse to. This will be the perfect opportunity.

    And those sites all seem informative.

    Now if only they'd send me a beta key I can get underway!

    Thanks for the info. One thing I've been unable to find, what about old players? I have characters, but haven't revisited DDO for a year or more. I'm hopeful that my account just rolls in to the free acount so I still have my chars. Any idea? I can't find any info on that in the FAQs.

    Think this is what you are looking for:

    "Q. What happens to my characters?

    A. Your characters are never deleted by Turbine! As a VIP who downgraded to a Free player, you'll have four character slots. When you enter the game as a Free player you'll be asked which characters you wish to unlock for these slots. If you'd like to unlock an additional character, you must purchase a slot for it. However, when you purchase this slot you'll also be given the option to exchange the characters in any previously unlocked slots with any of your locked characters."

     

    From:

    VIP Downgrade to Free F.A.Q.
