D&D Online solo stuff

Play with yourself.

Friendless? Fed up of Dungeons & Dragons Online? Tired of having to pal around just to make progress? Bored of lusting after loot, and only being able to get at it by stalking the entrance to a tasty dungeon in a sailor suit offering Stormreacharounds? Good news then, because Turbine's planning to release some solo-friendly content in a new update.

"An all new solo setting is being introduced to help new DDO players navigate through the early game content, allowing them the time and space to learn about their characters, try strategies and face monsters for the first time on their own," says Turbine in a website update. "Players will now have the option to play at their own pace as a solo-player in the Harbor."

Well not now, but fairly soon. "In addition to the Normal, Hard and Elite settings already available for each dungeon, the Solo option allows you to take on a dungeon at a difficulty setting suited for a single player. When you enter a dungeon on the solo setting, it contains monsters and traps that can be defeated without the help of a party." Apparently solo play won't be available for Waterworks, Irestone Inlet or Kobold Assault dungeons, but then beggars can't be choosers, eh?

More on all that along with other changes due over on DDO.com.
