Hi,

I was wondering if any new zones would be coming into the game in the near future. Since I got back into the game... I havn't seen a single new zone go in? It's been about 3-4 years ive been playing I think. I have heard that many zones are completed and have been for well over the time period of a year. Here's hoping, some new zones would be a cool addition :)

Guard isle, dragon dungeon, and faire grounds are the newest zones added.

Guard isle and dungeon we all know and love. The faire ground could use some work with the items there, considering it could be loadable by lower characters, if the gear was any good. We all love the diamond anklets though and I'm pretty sure every one of our characters has had a set to start out with. Diamond anklets are simply a staple, make a new character, have someone go buy you some anklets.

There are two shops there that each sell gear for males/females. Each shop has a bag of sleewear of sorts. When you examine the bag while it's in the shop, you can see it's full of what looks like lower level regen gear, pretty darn cool right? Buy a container AND it's got regen gear in it for you already?!? Wrong. When you buy the bag, it's empty. Last time I checked, this wasn't fixed yet; reported on a couple of times. There's also a room requiring a key that I've recently found with nothing in it. There is a barrel clearly in the room desc hinting it should be investigated, but doesn't exist.

We all hear rumor about zones ready to go in and there's not much more I could tell you about that because I'm no longer a builder. (Not to mention builders can't tell you about that stuff anyways.) I have heard rumor of a newbie school to help those people new to dl. I'm sure it's got gear and stuff for newbs that'll help people learn DL and give them a better start since not everyone can drop what they're doing and gear up a newb with items that new characters could never dream of attempting to load themselves. (Coliseum gear or guards from Rocksport.) I've discussed it many times with people, if a newb can wear it, it should be loadable by that level character. Yes, later on there are items much harder to load that work a range of levels, but we're at a point by then where it's doable. Simply put, new players to DL are discouraged when they can't load their own gear, takes the fun out of the game just being handed stuff you couldn't dream of obtaining yourself. I've often been asked by newer players where they should go to load themselves a set of armour and I've just ended up having them sit in the donation room while I go kill mobs for them. I hope the newbie school will help take care of this issue.
