Dungeons & Dragons Online celebrates 7th birthday with Update 17

DDO is having its 7th birthday next week, and as part of the party they've launched Update 17 and given everybody presents.

If you've got a toon in DDO, you should log in today, because you've been sent a gift box by Turbine. That, I think, would be exciting in and of itself, but the gift comes on the heels of the game's Update 17, which brings gear Augments into the game. Augmented gear contains an extra modification slot in which you can stick an augment that will give a stat bonus. Augmented gear is rare in the wild, but you can buy some from the DDO store.

Meanwhile, 17 also brings with it the Monster Manual edition (free for VIPs), which gives new quests and a couple creature companions.

For the rest of the new things in Update 17, be sure to check out the Compendium post about it.

Thanks, Massively.
