I still think the NGE would qualify in the Worst change ever made to an MMO.

As for the Best, I'd say Dual Specs in Wow and the Dungeon Finder.

Actually, i stopped playing the day after player cities became available, because i got two critical fails on crafting ours and a rival guild planted their city on top of where I was going to

If a game is that dependent on RNG that you can waste that many resources with no gain and be that completely screwed by it, it deserves a change that will kill it.

That;s why it's my favorite change is the NGE

Not ragequit, just realization that everything you do is dependent on the roll of 1 to 100, or whatever

Also, as of December the game is dead. If it didn't deserve to die people wouldn't have left it even before the NGE.

We are SO on the same page on this one, Ark. I didn't even have to think twice about the OP's question, though I would have said, the addition of heroes with the Nightfall campaign and then the subsequent change from 3 to 7 heroes.

If only I could use Heroes (or something akin to them) in other MMOs for instance runs (I'm looking at you, WoW)... :)

7-hero parties were sweet, that's so true. But my vote still goes to saving and loading skill templates!

Can't decide between Hard Modes and Dual Specs in WoW.

Agreed! I think Dual Specs pulls ahead a little for me though.

Ah yes, that was a great improvement, especially when you just needed one person in your squad to go to where the group needed to be & drop a squad waypoint for everyone.

But I'm saddened that the game's been gone so long now that I'm starting to forget if this was just on the public test server, or if it came out with the last give-everything-away patch before shut down... But I'd say that what was best was the Prestige points & the purchasable skill respec tokens with those points. If you ever wanted to change the way the skills of your class were configured, you just needed to earn enough points & rebuild them, and not have to build a whole new toon. That was awesome.

When DDO got rid of XP penalties.It used to be whenever you died you lost xp, and the more you died the more you lost. This change ushered in a lot of player friendly changes, like health regeneration in public areas and resetting rest shrines that have made the game infinitely better.
