GameGeex - Secrets of the Artificers update announced for DDO Turbine's little MMO that could announces their biggest update so far.

Today Turbine announced Update 11 for Dungeons and Dragons Online.  Secrets of the Artificers will be the largest content update for the MMO to date, boasting the addition of a new class, new crafting skills, and a new high-level quest hub.  

The update will launch next month they say, and I think it's a great idea to add a new class this far into the game's lifecycle.  I for one am interested in checking it out, especially after seeing the concept art surrounding the Artificer class.  I think there should be more craft-centric classes in MMOs, as it lends the world a depth of realism that many games are sorely lacking.  After all, how many of us go on epic quests and swing swords for a living?  I think there are far more bakers and construction workers in the world than there are warriors and monks.  Definitely more than monks. Plus, who doesn't like a little Steampunk in their MMOs?  I know I do.

Details about Update 11 are below.  Expect Secrets of the Artificers to land in Stormreach sometime during September.

 

 

The new update, Update 11: Secrets of the Artificers, features:

·         New Artificer Class

A blend of Rogue and Arcane classes, the Artificer uses specially created weapons and mechanical pets to challenge their foes

·         New House Cannith Enclave

Home of the Artificers, House Cannith is a new high level quest hub where magic and mechanics converge.

·         New Content

Born in war, forged in fury, Stormreach faces its most terrible foe yet.

·         New Crafting Levels
Craft all the way to level 150. Plus, craft Draconic Runestones, a new magical weapon available to all classes.

 

The Secrets of the Artificers Premium Adventure Pack will be available in the DDO Store and Free to VIPs, and includes:

·         Two new high level Raids

·         New wilderness area
