It was launched by Turbine in 2006 as ''Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach''. The game has since been renamed ''Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited''. (The latest update appears to have removed ''Eberron Unlimited'' from the logo, but is still referred to as such in reference materials and on the main website.) It is based in the campaign world of {{Eberron}} (yeah, [[{{Magitek}} the Magitek one]]) and is set on the fictional continent of Xen'drik. After years of being a pay-to-play game, it was rebranded as a free-to-play game with premium content that could be accessed by becoming a VIP (which is simply maintaining a paid subscription) or spending Turbine Points on it. The player character is initially thrust into a plot that involves an evil Devourer cult, sahuagin, a dragon, and a lot of snow.

* AdaptationalBadass: The Lord of Blades is ''much'' stronger than he is in [[{{Eberron}} the main setting]].

* SteamPunk: Considering [[{{Eberron}} the setting]], the game has this and DungeonPunk all over the place, from the low-level The Waterworks and Shan-To-Kor, to the advanced adversaries in the Cannith Manufactuary. The Menace of the Underdark expansion, however, sticks to the high-fantasy campaign settings when you visit the Forgotten Realms.

* LostForever:
** You get one and only one ember weapon per character, and they're non-tradeable. Here's hoping you have some other way to attack with fire or acid when you finally meet some trolls.
** Finish Misery's Peak you only get one shot at the end rewards, which are the second half of a two set piece that gives a class related bonus depending on which one you pick. Choose wisely, because you can't trade your pick in for a different set.
** In a more abstract way, your starting stats. Put too much strength on your wizard? Well, you can either start over or [[BribingYourWayToVictory buy a Heart of Wood (rerolling token)]] and fix those stats.

* FakeBalance: Rogues get the shallow end of the DPS pool. Sure, sneak attack can do some [[ForMassiveDamage massive damage]], but it doesn't catch up to a fighter's damage output until about level 12, and even then it doesn't work against undead, elementals, oozes, constucts, an enemy with a Fortification (depending on how much it gives) item, or other human players in 1-on-1 PvP.

** There's a quest-giving NPC that asks you to [[WorldOfWarcraft retrieve 10 rat tails]]. When your character reacts incredulously ("You can NOT be serious!"), the NPC's whole table bursts out laughing. He then gives you the REAL mission.

** Update 29 wildly changed this with randomized loot[[http://ddowiki.com/page/Update_29_randomly_generated_loot#Weapon_Damage]]; now the Vorpal prefix can apply to ''any'' melee weapon (and possibly ranged weapons) including blunt weapons like maces...and even handwraps, so your punch is so sharp it can literally cut someone's head off.
