Featured Article Managing Editor Jon Wood recently got the scoop on the upcoming Module 7 update from Turbine to Dungeons and Dragons Online. The new update will bring a new playable class to the game in the form of the Monk, a hands and feet melee class.

In deciding how to implement the monk into the game, the team at Turbine looked beyond the regular source material (the Player's Handbook) and delved into the Dungeons and Dragons 3rd Edition "Oriental Adventures" sourcebook to find extra abilities for the new class.

A recent post-patch bug saw female characters in Age of Conan go through unintentional plastic surery, with some breast sizes being reduced.

The AoC Community Manager Glen Swan told IGN that "We are working on a fix for this and your breasts should be back to normal soon," Swan added. "The plastic surgeons of Hyboria apologize for the inconvenience."
