Dungeons & Dragons Online (DDO) has just celebrated its 17th anniversary with the release of Update 58: Unlikely Heroes. The update was launched on February 22nd, 2023, and it comes with a lot of exciting new features.
The Anniversary Event is back, and players can participate in House Phiarlan. The dungeon has received some fun updates, and players can get new rewards as they explore it. The Anniversary Event is available until March 5th, and players can find the portal to the event next to Gnoa Bn’for near the Phiarlan Chapterhouse.
To celebrate the anniversary, players can also pick up a free cosmetic armor. Players can speak with the Djinni in House Phiarlan to get the armor, and it can be acquired once per day per game world. Players who missed last year’s free gift can turn in Party Favors to select it from the prize list.
Three new free Archetypes have been added to the game in honor of DDO’s 17th anniversary. The Acolyte of the Skin, Blightcaster, and Dark Hunter are now available to everyone who plays the game. Players can get more detailed information about each Archetype in the release notes.
Players can also enjoy a new free dungeon called “Kill Ten Rats.” The Gatekeepers need heroes to help them transport the Codex of the Infinite Planes to Morgrave University. However, an unexpected threat arises, and players must help protect the artifact during transportation. The quest is level 18 in Heroic difficulty and level 34 in Legendary difficulty, and players can start it by speaking with Frelda Brumlyn near the boat to Morgrave University in the Cliffside Docks District of Sharn.
