It all Begins with an Idea

Everyone on the Dungeons and Encounters team remembers fondly the dungeon crawls in DAoC and UO – the face-offs, the race, the thrill of the tension when deciding whether or not to kill the monster that drops the loot first and then the enemy player, or vice versa. We’ve wanted to work on an RvR-enabled dungeon for some time. The go-ahead in September shortly after launch was music to our ears. I quickly started drafting up the high-level designs.
