|Gamebanshee cornered some guys from Turbine for a (very) short interview on D&D Online. Here's one of the exchanges:|
GB: Equipping a character with a variety of magical items was always a fun aspect of tabletop Dungeons & Dragons. Do you plan on implementing many of the traditional D&D magic items in the MMORPG version, or will you be creating some of your own?
Turbine: We’ll definitely want to use as many of the traditional Dungeons and Dragons magic items as possible. At the same time, expect some unique magic items created just for D&D Online as well. Of course, some magic items that you’ll find at the back of the DMG just don’t fit with the game. We’re sorry, but the Apparatus of Kwalish is probably out.
