Hardcore Server

To be honest, I hadn’t really taken much notice of the announcements for the Hardcore Server in DDO. I had seen Lessah tweet about it and mentioned in the Twitch stream descriptions (Sorry Damsels – I haven’t had a chance to watch any streams recently!) but that was about it.

DDO Screenshots Part 1

I’ve been having a bit of a clear-out on the PC and realised I have quite a few high res pictures taken within DDO that I think might make great desktop backgrounds! So here is part 1 of a series of 4 posts that will make them available for people.

Note for anyone who has not looked at the new quests there may be some minor spoilers.

OK, so, disclaimers! We ran the quests at Heroic Elite (level 12) and we are currently level 14. We’ve not read anything about the new quests/areas and didn’t try the Lammania preview.
