Recently, Turbine deployed Update 5 to all Dungeons & Dragons Online servers. Update 5 features some impressive changes including airships. MMORPG.com's Jaime Skelton had the opportunity to tour Update 5 and she has a lot to say about the new changes to DDO in Update 5. Read on!
Of course, the biggest part of the new guild system is the rewards. Rewards are spread out across all 100 levels, but are deliberately biased toward the first 50 levels so that functional rewards (including the much touted airship) are unlocked in the early part of the game. Later rewards are focused more on prestige, offering a chance for players to show off on their server and have friendly competition between other guilds after securing their benefits at lower levels. The early rewards for guilds are guild chat, the ability to invite players to the guild via the mail system, and vendors.
