Update 42 Patch 2 Release Notes

Here are the Release Notes for Update 42 Patch 2, released on Tuesday, June 11th. 

News and Notes:


DDO Store

  • New item
    • Wish for Memories.
      • Wish for Memories is an item you can use in addition to the Heart of Blood when performing a Racial Reincarnation. When using a Wish, you must select a race you own on the account. Upon completion of the reincarnation you will gain a past life of the wish you used, and not the race you previously were.
      • Example: I am currently playing a tiefling, I want to earn the racial past life of a human, but I want to stay as a tiefling. You can purchase a Wish for Human Memories to use in addition with the Heart of Blood to earn a Human past life, but stay as a Tiefling.
      • Restrictions: You must own the race you want to earn the racial past life on. You must use the Wish in addition to Hearts of Blood.
