    Default Downtime Notice: Saturday, 7:00am-11:00am Eastern (-5 GMT)

    The DDO game worlds will be unavailable on Saturday, 7:00 AM - 11:00 AM Eastern (-5 GMT) for a hotfix.


    This hotfix is being actively worked on, so there is some chance the hotfix will be postponed.


    Here are the things we are working to fix:



    • Correct an issue where the examination window will sometimes get wider over time.
    • Fix an issue where the Keystone would not consistently spawn in the quest Invitation to Dinner.
    • Correct an issue with The Mist wall in Raven's Bane that could prevent players from progressing past Baleful.
    • Lowered the number of wolves that spawn in Fresh-baked Dreams.
    • Correct typos in Fresh-baked Dreams.
    • Remove an energy drain spell attack in Fresh-baked Dreams and Mad Tea Party.
    • No longer allow Dimension Door to be cast in the quest Mad Tea Party due to the spell sometimes breaking the quest.
    • No longer having the quest Sealed in Amber sometimes get a PvP flag activated.
    • Fix an issue where the wrong level weapon would be bestowed to a player as part of the weapon giver encounter in the Barovian wilderness area.
    • Resolve some issues where effects were stacking incorrectly over time (aka - "stacking effects bugs").
    • Fix an issue where a Half elf Vistani Knife Fighter would sometimes display in a T-Pose.
    • Provide instructions in their tool tips on how to use Sentience Toolkits, Destroyers, and Jewels.
    • Correct an issue in Assault on the Aerie of the Slave Lords where Madam Eva would not move to open the secret passage, making the quest not able to be completed.
    • Correct an issue where Grave Wrappinigs, Antipode, and the level 20 and 24 versions of Amaunator Ascetic's Handwraps were not Accepting Sentience.
    • Correct an issue where the Arcane Archer Critical Multiplier was not applying consistently.
    • Legendary Memory of Fine Regalia now appears with its correct Spell Power and Spell Critical values. This does not correct items already acquired; we hope to correct these items in an upcoming patch.
    • The end chest in Amber Temple now spawns whether you draw Strahd's attention or not. However, drawing his attention will earn you an extra regular chest.
    • Fixed effect bugs with the Crypt Raider, Beacon of Magic, and Adherent of the Mists sets.
    Have fun, and don't forget to gather for buffs!

    We may be able to do this in the future, but not in time for this update.

    Here's how I fixed my DDO. I loaded up the screen with login, hit the button in the top right. It looks like a _. Gives you 3 options. Hit "options," go to, "repair" and mark the box. Then reload the game. It's a fullscreen issue. ( most likely )

    I realy hope that the fix can include a way to re-flag players for the weapon smith at the entrance to Barovia. Even if this gives some players 2 weapons, so what. I sent a ticket in about my level 10 and 12 getting level 29 weapons and was told There is no help for it.. Why they couldnt trade me the heroic version for the epic one I don't know.

    I was hoping they would fix the insane amount of freezing and lag , which appeared after the expansion patch.

    It won't let me because I have Windows 10. But thank you for trying. God this is so annoying. The game ran fine until the update.

    That's a large issue and one we very very much want to address but it was out of scope for a quick turn around hotfix such as this. The same goes for the crashing some players are experiencing in the Barovia wilderness area. Both are being investigated and worked on.

    Have you sent in your computer diag, error logs and specific case description, eg: where you experience the lag /loc command to fetch coords.

    Because it will be very difficult to track down and fix if it only affects a % of clients, who also dont specify their setups.

    "Lag happened" itself is probably one of the least descriptive bug reports, and least likely to get any response or fix unless it is traceable.

    Thanks for the forewarning. UK time here, so that means Noon onwards (prime time for us UK players). Oh well, I can play LOTRO I suppose
    And that is NOT advertising another game, you are owned by the same folk. Sub runs out on DDO in 3 weeks.. toying with the idea of switching...

    Default Examination Window acting funny...

    Just fyi, the examination window is always situated in the center of the screen now. Is this WAI? I recall it being off to the side, or at the very least remain away from the center when I hit "Z" on another item/target. Thank you for any information you can provide.
