Larian Studios
The loyal Dungeons & Dragons Online community has begun to try out the game (our D&D community been together since 2006). Many DDO players started playing D&D games when the SSI Gold Box games were a thing on the Commodore 64, 128 and AMIGA back in the 1980s!! Pool of Radiance, Dark Queen of Krynn and Curse of Asure Bonds.

Where are the OLD SCHOOL GAMERS and how DO YOU LIKE the potential of Baldur's Gate 3?

We are definitely looking for feedback from the gamers who played the turn based D&D products of years ago.

I played DDO and still have characters that are probably sat under a pile of dust somewhere.

The graphics and richness of BG3 is light years ahead of DDO, as you'd expect given the years that have passed. I'm also not sorry that I won't be continually bumping into PvP groups intent of killing anything in front of them, or strolling down the street as a character dressed in what appears to be a neon lilac jumpsuit bounces past.
I played, a lot, until the recent changes to archery drove me off.
I played the Gold Box games years ago, and NWN 1 and 2, and I still play DDO once in a while.
DDO is imo the pinnacle of computer DnD. Yes it has aged, has a shit ton of content, very complex, but it really is a marvel. These two are in different styles so they have plenty of room to stand on their own without needing to bring the other down. Somewhere I dream of a DDO 2 that can just do everything right, but it is but a dream. With BG3 it is just continued refinement of Larian's cRPG's and it's good to see and play each iteration. We have one working in a realtime version of what DnD would be like that way and one trying to recreate the table top.
I agree 100% Horrorscope!
I never played the original Pool of Radiance games, but I played the Dark Sun DOS games and the Al-Qadim one. The D&D digital game I've played the most of is NWN, though.

I'm pretty excited for this one. Lots of potential!
I was already using DDO as a reference to compare a lot of the stuff in this game and theorycraft with prior to the EA release.

Any research predicated on the older rules isn’t very applicable. Most of the basic rules for 5E are available for free on the official website dndbeyond.com. That is a great source for planning out your builds.
Oldschool gamer here. I have very fond memories of Pools of Radiance, Curse of Azure Bonds et al. Don't forget Eyes of the Beholder series!! smile I used to really enjoy DDO, but quit, actually fairly recently all things considered, due to design changes. I am also really enjoying BG3. They are both very different games, and each enjoyable in their own way.

I would love a new DDO, although I suspect any attempt to do so would result in a more modern design version heavily leaning toward the changes that caused me to drift away from the game. I am looking forward to seeing BG3 develop.

Indeed. The biggest shock was the absolute lack of feats in BG3 compared to DDO. And also you have to choose between a feat or ability increases.

It’s a pretty dramatic shift, but I like it. The exorbitant number of feats was something I didn’t like about 3rd edition. Some disagree, but I find the more restrictive system in 5E makes for more interesting and meaningful choices.
I love DDO though it has been shifting further away from DND. Still a great game in its own right.

BG3 is the first worthy replacement I've seen!
In it's current state BG3 is not worthy of the Baldur's Gate name and is wearing a D&D skinsuit. There are many changes that need to be made even to the content present in the game at the current moment and a lot of considerations that need to be made regarding the quality of the writing and several other design choices. If it continues down the path it is currently on I don't see that initial assessment as changing and I will have wasted my money.

When you say that DDO is shifting away from D&D, do you mean that the 3e ruleset is less relevant, or that DDO themselves have changed the game away from the 3e rules?

Yes, I'm enjoying BG3 as well. D&D is not my first choice for an RPG but I've been playing it for over 40 years and it feels comfortable. I also like Pathfinder:Kingmaker, having been burned in the debacle that was Pathfinder Online and resigning myself to never seeing a proper PF CRPG.

Well enemies with hundreds of thousands of hit points isn't a D&D mechanic but an MMO raid mechanic. The nature of the game became full grind and level up as fast as possible to the point that every group is speed running everything, so if you don't know how to get to every quest you're screwed because no one will wait for you.

The D&D features were heavily hampered by the typical MMO grindfest and player base. I've given up on the MMO / forced multiplayer genre as a whole now.

But if you can somehow find a small group of friends to just play the content as-is, no rush... there's a lot of memorable content.

They are trailing new paths as they are in character levels higher than in the books because of online continuation over years. So yeah you'll see higher level #'s and the like.
My problem with DDO is that they keep doing revamps and system additions that create huge hurdles for new players. If you haven't been playing forever and done the reincarnation train, a lot of the game is pretty close to inaccessible unless you find a group of experienced players willing to let you piggyback. And that just isn't fun. Spellcasting DCs in the heroics are so high for example, that casters aren't very functional at all if you don't have TR bonuses. Good luck in reaper mode after the rebalancing if you don't have a million reaper points already. They are also changing looting so that quests will permanently ransack until you true reincarnate. Once again, screwing over new/newer players who won't have had years of collecting loot.

They continue to rebalance against the playing habits of old players. But the problem with this in a game like DDO is that the entire game is about reincarnating and replaying content. So any rebalancing for older many times reincarnated characters kicks new players in the teeth. I love the game, but ended up quitting because everyone I ever tried to introduce to the game ended up leaving because the new player experience is that awful, and it only gets worse every time they rebalance.

I remember playing all those old Gold Box games and pretty much every D&D computer game ever since. BG3 looks great visually, the character models, cutscenes, environments, companions, and story will likely be epic but ... I would highly recommend checking out Solasta which releases in Early Access October 20th on Steam. It is not set in Forgotten Realms but is a D&D game in a new original setting. It stays very true to the 5e rule set and looks like it will be excellent.
Those Gold Box games were awesome for the time. I still remember claiming the well in Pool of Radiance as my own lair, kicking Zhentarim ass, and an underground goblinoid lair that featured waves of ranged attacks blasting my group of intrepid adventurers Plus those games allowed for a group of EIGHT!!!

No one has friends to play with online. Trying to look for your own groups takes hours to fill for a single 15 minute quest. The whole MMO experience is garbage.

That DDO has moved on from 3e. I'd be happy with a faithful 3e or 5e game, ddo is neither.

I do love some aspects though, like the SLAs for casters which I think predate and maybe inspired at will cantrips in 4e and 5e.

Spell like abilities are PnP based. http://roleplaynexus.com/errataspelllike.html

The biggest thing in DDO that isn't is enemy HP numbers and 12 people raids and all that MMO junk.
Yep - remember when the handful of quests were voiced by Gygax? Folks who didn't know who he was would be like, "wait, what happened to the narrator..?" Hah! Good times.

Booted it up a year or two ago and had to reroll the character I logged into (apparently the underlying systems have changed a lot). Don't think I logged back in after the re-roll, but was good memories walking around the main town.

Don't mind the doomsayers on the thread, it was a great game in its day; definitely laid a lot of foundation despite not aging terribly well. Baked-in chat support was a huge facet for me, really altered the experience.
Wow I havent been back to the forums in 2 weeks and LOVE all the replies!! Thank you thank you!!


DDO is the gold standard for REPLAYABILITY for D&D online gaming. IMHO. Jury is still out on BG3 if they can marshal a loyal playerbase and drive content on the level that Turbine and SSG has managed SO BRILLIANTLY with Dungeons & Dragons Online.
id say the gold standard would be NWN peresistant worlds
I've been playing tabletop D&D since the white box days and CRPGs since Temple of Apshai came out on cassette for the C64. I've played all the SSI gold box games and still have some of my original diskettes, rule books, hint books and decoder wheels. Played and own all the Bioware Infinity engine games, as well as the more recent enhanced editions of same. Also have and played NWN 1 & 2, and the enhanced edition. Played a bit of DDO and Neverwinter, but I'm not a big fan of MMOs.

So far, I find BG3 to be okay, but not earth-shattering. I realize there is a lot of work yet to be done here, but it just seems like it should have been a bit further along before they opened 'pay to beta test'. Not being able to scroll the camera in combat is a big deal for me, as I like to take out enemies as far away from me as possible. This is especially irksome when the enemies do not suffer from the same limitation to targeting that I do.

The graphics are really good, though, as is the sound quality. Vulkan sends my PC into thermal shutdown after an hour or so, while DX11 causes no noticeable system strain. I'm running an FX 8350 Black Edition and a Radian RX Vega 64, so Vulkan shouldn't be causing heat issues. I'm guessing that there are some method calls being handled by the CPU that ought to go to the GPU, but that's only a guess. I write application for desktops for a living, not video games, so I could be completely off there.

Isn't DDO based on Eberron 3.5? I'm actually starting NwN Online today with a buddy for lore, figured that would be more relatable than DDO.

Yes, it's Eberron 3.5. Although later on they did add some Forgotten Realms parts into it as well.
Never liked DDO to be honest. Tried a few times but it never clicked for me. I am an old time gamer though, played NWN 1 & 2 with all their extensions when they came out and loved them.
DDO has incredible variety from feats and skills and realistic combat.

It can accept up to 12 members in a party for raids and has built in voice, no need for discord/teamspeak etc. unless you want to.

Friends are EASY to find in my guild Tyrs Paladium smile It's an Old School gamers paradise. smile
Still play DDO sometimes on ghallanda server... think i may have even been in your guild for a while long ago! Heyas! laugh
OHHH....DDO. The memories laugh

Played a lot in the beginning. Until....i stopped. Blackspell the Wizard laugh yay.
Hey hey... how's you old school gamers liking the game thusfar?
I am about as old school DnD as it gets, started playing table top in 1976. I have played pretty much every DnD base video game out there.

BG3 is not bad but I hate the rules change. I am a fan of 2nd Edition, especially the way it fit into the Forgotten Realms. BG3 has potential but until we see some more classes and other NPCs for companions I am on the fence.
I don't know if I'm old school, back when gold box were a thing they just weren't available where I lived. It was this sort of mythic treasure akin to trying to find a copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga in the wild. Nowadays I tend towards modern sensibilities, inconvenient interfaces and mechanics won't make me young again. I'm pretty hyped about where BG3 is, maybe it will need a few mods to truly shine.

Played a bit of DDO fairly recently. It took me well over a decade to find someone to play with since playing with randos isn't all that fun. Good game with some fun quests and also the Twelve.
I’m an old school D&D player, maybe not as old as 1976, but mid 90s.

Honestly if we actually want D&D to make a meaningful impact on the video game stage it needs to evolve, but I have a feeling it still won’t, because Elitists and Purists hold it back from evolving or adapting to the format.

Want more games? The they need to offer more success/money to the companies that make them. Want them to be more successful, then they need to appeal to a wider audience. We should have some purity to D&D itself so that it doesn’t get watered down, and less enjoyable, but refusing to change anything, means it will stay in obscurity, like it has for its entire life. Yeah it gets a little boost in popularity here and there, but it always does back down, and peeps just seem to be unwilling to look at reality.

I'm as much a fossil as Zentu, so this +1.

Still a fan of 2.0, absolutely abhored 3.5 (won't even acknowledge 4.0) but 5.0 has some potential. I certainly don't expect BG3 to go retro to the days of BG2/2.0.
Started playing PnP D&D in the late 70s, but prior to that I played Chainmail fantasy supplement - so kinda sorta D&D before D&D. As for CRPGs, man it gets hazy, but I think I was late to the DND CRPG scene (late 90s, maybe). DDO on and off since late Beta (actually, I didn't care for it then, like it passably well now.)
I quite like turn based play, my favourite implementation of that was ToEE, buggy and sometime annoying as hell, but seemed to work well. If I could have a wish implementation, it would be like BG2, especially with the selectable autopauses, but I'm liking BG3 pretty well as itself, and I'm not too hung up with things being like they were in prior games

Combat in ToEE was actually well-done, I could almost bear 3.0/3.5. Problem with it was being rushed out the door.

The later unofficial version of it was much improved.
Quite right, Anfindel, and mostly the point I'd like to make. If they want to copy a mechanism, ToEE is a good choice, in my opinion.
Original server Xoriat, currently on Orien. Been playing DDO since late 06
Yea Im a DDO player! I main a Drow, Cleric, Chaotic Good, Viktanys Do'Urden, but in Baldur's gate im Lloth Silvermoon smile Drow Cleric :P
Ddo was absolutely awesome and much better than bg3 from a complexity and rule viewpoint. But was always too hard to find people at your lvl to play quests. And the lack of enough solo quests made you simply stagnate without online friends.

I would pay big $$$ to have a DDO 2 done today.

DDO these days is 1000x easier to solo, you can easily do about 95% of the content with one player and maybe a hireling here and there. It is a bit dry though so to actually enjoy most of it a friend will help a lot.
DDO was the first MMO I played. I don't know exactly when I first joined, but I think it was right after guilds were added, and I played regularly up until mists of ravenloft was added. That went strong for a while, but then it started getting hard to fill groups so I left. I have tons of good memories of the game, and I very much enjoyed the amount of build versatility it had. The build I ended on was a charisma-based purple dragon knight paladin/monk. Charisma to hit and damage, shortswords to stay in monk stances, insane heal amp. It was a bit subpar on damage, but it was a lot of fun being practically immune to all traps in the game, having very good self-healing (consecration ftw!), oh and I had like 120 intimidate too which came in handy sometimes.

Anyway, it was definitely a good time and I would probably still be playing if there were just more players to play with. And if anyone here was on the Orien server, this is Witty. I apologize for hitting you with a pumpkin. Or skull. Or for the few unfortunates around during the artificer buff bug, both.
yeah the rules changes will TAKE GETTING USED TO for many old school D&D gamers.

DDO works on D&D 3rd ed and worked out REALLY WELL. Even in an MMO, it FEELS surreal like a 3D experience should feel like.... with 6 member parties TOTAL FUN!!!

BG3 is a simplified D&D game. We probably would have given a ruleset like this a few hours of play on hte table and thats it....

But BG3 might SURPRISE. its brilliant game development and Im excited to see what this big team of developers can pull of!!

Ass Gary Gygax said about the rules....


Games give you a chance to excel, and if you're playing in good company you don't even mind if you lose because you had the enjoyment of the company during the course of the game.” ...

AND

“The secret we should never let the gamemasters know is that they don't need any rules.”


This is why DDO works, and is STILL IN ACTIVE DEVCELOPEMENT after 15 YEARS

LOVE seeing DDO players of old and current here!!!!

I think I played DDO for a short while, but I am even more oldschool, my first MMO was Asheron's Call 2 (Turbine's game prior to DDO). smile

I remember conquering the Well area in Pools of Radiance.

From that point on, my party insisted on using the Well as its base camp -returning to the Well to rest in safety, chat over roasted mob burgers and drool over new loot and gear.

Yeah, it was mostly in my head, but it was a golden time - years later BG2 Strongholds made this more of a reality.
