It has been a busy couple of weeks over in the DDO forums. First, a poll to find out whether we’d like to be Kobolds or Dragonborne (my curmudgeonly vote – none of the above). Then there was the new Producer’s Letter (my curmudgeonly vote – blehh). And now, the One Thing Thread.

Turbine developer NoWorries is asking everyone to list the One Thing they’d most like to see fixed. But there are guidelines, one can’t just start spouting off everything in their personal Known Issues list.

  • Only one thing
  • Should be self-contained, targeted, and small scale. Think fixing one monster, rather than fixing all monster AI

NoWorries includes examples of the kind of submissions that are most likely to result in actions.

An additional rule is that this thread is not for commenting on the other entries. Say what you have to say about your One Thing and then leave; kibitzing about other people’s One Thing will just be deleted.

The thread is not even three full days old and it has already generated 214 replies. As of right now. Not including whatever had to be deleted for kibitzing-related-reasons. Clearly this is a popular idea. I am going to write 215 as soon as I finish this. I am going to post about the annoying drop rates in Temple of Elemental Evil. And in all older content, but especially TOEE.

If you have that one thing that annoys you the most, this is your chance. Go. Post it. Share. Explain why it is so annoying.

Get it out there where the world can see, and maybe, get it corrected.

That would be cool, wouldn’t it?

  1. 216 – The travel points in the Gianthold wilderness can only be taken by the first person in your party that reaches them. I’d really like them to be given to everyone in the party who hits them.

    That’s bugged me for years. Thanks for the blog, I don’t frequent the forum so wouldn’t have known about this πŸ˜€

  2. Interesting, did we have something like this before? Either way, something might get fixed! πŸ˜€
    (Maybe the mouse wheel bug)

    My search-fu is too weak to figure out how to search the 200+ suggestions that already exist, and I will bow to the superior wisdom of others, good luck everyone!

    • Actually, something cosmetic might be easy to fix, like the bald spots some hair styles seem to have. Might only present on certain graphics settings… Someone clever will come up with something related to that πŸ™‚

  3. Kobold jumping.

What do you think?
