I'm a returning DDO player. Been away for over 5 years.
Please help me decide. I can only buy one of the two right now. My priority is items and equipment that I can get from the quests. I tend to run mostly bow, xbow builds and maybe melee; almost never casters.
Where will I find the best equipment between the two packs? Ravenloft or Masterminds.
Or should I be looking at a different pack? I have most of the older packs like Necro 1-4, Shroud, Shavarath etc.
if you were away for such a long time maybe you do not own "epic destinies" (from store or bundled with underdark expansion). playing epics with no destinies makes no sense at all just fyi, if you plan to not-casual play again you need them also for epic reincarnation bonuses in the long run. ask your guild for some lenghty explanation\recap in game, it can get messy :)
another maybe important advice: depending on your will to spend, you may want to wait for the new Feywild expansion, announced for later this year. no info about it, just an announcement in the producer letter.
