    Their hardcore server is shit. Lags are terrible. Not usual rubber banding, but proper 30+ seconds stops every 5-10 minutes. Twice game just stopped completely and i had to alt+f4. And it's in just ~2 hours.

    yeah no one can claim its stable. Party chat is available half of the time. Spike lags last even a minute.
    Had one long one right after beating the boss but still 4 skeletons were roaming. Had to wait a bit to check whether we are dead.

    Not enjoyable experience at all

    But there is positives too. Regular server runs smoothly because everyone went to hc.

    Playing same character on hardcore and as my next reincarnation on argo. Interesting observation - stronger and better equipped version is stronger.

    They cant even scale up the UI to modern resolutions.

    main reason I don't play lotro/ddo anymore is because every time I try again the UI gets in my way
    I have the choice of playing at 1080p -- where the UI is still too small -- and a game that looks like blurred shit, or playing at 4k with a magnifying glass.

    I play Everquest at 4k. Literally no excuse. Every UI element in Everquest can be moved or resized, 22 year old game.

    1st rogue died in redfang. Forgot about trap.
    Eventually rolled 2nd rogue. This time drow with autosearch. Died on next trapbox after 1st one. It got this annoying Box Trap Trap Box Trap pattern i rushed blindly expecting that both traps in between boxes would be disarmed. oh well...

    on leet most traps kill you on single failed roll. And its not like its hard to fail, I died to 11 roll.
    Obviously somewhat unique to hardcore where you dont run around with TRed character and 30 resistance ship buff

    Really enjoying barbarian. But there is one thing where inquisitive is just better - beholders. Fuck them.

    Play as warforged/bladeforged.
    How consequential races are in DDO to your character is one of my favorite aspects of the game.

    Well, there is also option to invest heavily into vistani knife fighter tree. It's actually good for barb - doublestrike, protections agains wizzord mindfuckery, attack speed boost.
