In-Testing: Ranged Combat

In-Testing: Ranged Combat - Dungeons & Dragons Online -

Turbine's Dungeons and Dragons Online: Stormreach, has released a new "In-Testing" feature. This one centers on ways that Turbine plans to improve the ranged combat in their game: Below, you will find the introduction to the article. If you like what you see, click on the link at the bottom to read the whole thing.


One of the most exciting components of Module 3 is the changes we are making to combat - both ranged and melee. This article takes an in-depth look at the changes we are making to ranged combat, while an upcoming article will examine melee combat.

Ranged combat has been on our radar for a long time as an area of our game that we could improve. At the very least ranged combat did not seem to scale the same way melee combat did as players leveled. We began to cull data from several sources – pure data analysis (DPS etc.), user comments on the forums (especially the feedback Codog solicited on his "Pet Peeves" thread), and our own experiences playing DDO. We ultimately arrived at the changes you see below.
