    • A broken elevator shaft now has a notice directing you to the other one.
    • Secret doors that are opened by monsters will no longer accidentally close when players interact with them.
    • Traps now do slightly less damage and are easier to avoid.


  • The native MacOS client for DDO has been deprecated and replaced with a WINE-based client solution for MacOS. Click here to read more. Players attempting to launch the game from the deprecated launcher should now receive messaging to direct them to the new client. 
    • ​NOTES:
      • ​The WINE client is not compatible with the newly-released MacOS Catalina. Players who wish to play natively on a Mac (as opposed to using a Windows-based solution) should NOT update to Catalina. 
      • The deprecated MacOS client erroneously references LOTRO instead of DDO in its messaging, although all links remain valid.
