DDO: Release Notes: Update 14: Menace of the Underdark Expansion

First, I’d like to apologize for how late I am posting these. Sorry all. On to the important stuff.

Welcome to the Update 14, Menace of the Underdark Expansion Release Notes for Dungeons & Dragons Online! These release notes were posted on Monday, June 25th, 2012.

News & Notes

The shadow of Lolth has cast darkness over the kingdom of Cormyr where heroes struggle to stem the unrelenting tide of the Drow forces. The hopes of the Realms lie with champions from Eberron, whose world has become entangled in Lolth's schemes, bringing them to Faerűn where they will make the final stand against the Queen of the Demonweb!

UI

New
  • Many parts of the UI have been updated or refreshed to be more D&D-setting-neutral, rather than Eberron or Forgotten Realms specific.
  • It is now possible to see your Epic Destiny XP in addition to your normal character XP at the bottom of the screen. You can now toggle your experience bar to show either character level progress, Epic Destiny Progress, or both.
  • The game menu is now located in the lower left of the screen. Click the DDO dragon ampersand (&) to pull up the menu. You may shrink the menu to icon-only by clicking the eye symbol.
  • It is now possible to save your UI layout/options between different characters, accounts, computers, and monitor resolutions! As of Update 14, when you log in for the first time you will initially find all UI layouts back at their default positions and sizes. To create and save a custom layout:
    • Arrange your UI to your preferred layout and options for that character
    • Save those settings locally by using “/ui layout save [filename]” in the chat window.
    • Replace "[filename]" with an easy to remember name for that layout.
      • If you don’t specify a filename, then your layout will be saved under, or loaded from, the name Default_<resolution>.layout. For example, if you are running in 1440x900 resolution, your UI layout file will be "Default_1440_900.layout."
    • You may save as many layouts as you like for any of your characters. Be sure to use different names so as not to overwrite an existing layout.
  • To load a UI file, type "/ui layout load [filename]" in the chat window.
  • Your UI layout files save to your Dungeons & Dragons Online -> data -> ui -> layouts folder. You may copy your ui layout files from this folder into other computers if you like, though we recommend that you make a new layout if the monitor resolution between those computers differs.
Changes
  • The mail notification icon has been moved from the focus orb to the player vitals bar. The icon has also been updated to be a "letter" icon.
  • The cursor has been modified to be more contrasting and easier to see.
  • Your character's last public area location is now shown in character select screen.
  • The background of the Character selection screen will now change depending on whether your character last left off in Eberron or Forgotten Realms.
  • Class levels are now listed following a character's total level on the Character Selection screen
  • Several changes have been made to the basic game UI, such as hotbars and focus orb.
  • Buff/Debuff icons can be left or right justified. The default is now LEFT justified.
  • Platinum bank deposit window will no longer disappear in the right or lower side of the screen
  • An "Assist My Target" key is now available. This option will cause you to automatically switch to hard-targetting the enemy of your target.
  • When a bow/xbow is equipped, you will now see the proper attack bonus in the Inventory UI's detail pane when a character has an alternate ability mod feat, such as Zen Archery.
  • Escape Key closing for windows now closes all panel windows when pressed.
  • Negative effects are now shown their own row and with red borders.
  • The Kundarak crafting hall entrance now has a pretty focus orb image showing the crafting hall.
  • Updated the over-head icons for several public quest bestowers (particularly those associated with the Campaign system)
  • Class levels are now listed following a character's total level on the Character Selection screen
  • You will now get a floaty text notice when a buff wears off. This text may be turned off with an option in the UI Options menu.
  • Dialog boxes (confirmations, messages, etc.) will no longer disappear when dragged down and to the right.
  • Overhead damage text is now displaying properly again.
  • The Account Bank window can once again be freely resized.
  • Dragging items onto cosmetic armor button now equips them.
  • The crafting, barter, and deconstruction Uis should no longer grey-out the clear button erroneously.
  • The ingredients box should allow drag & dropping after a recipe completion.
  • Floating health bars on monsters will no longer be overwritten by the current target's health bar.
