Maybe Thinking Of Buying But Have A Few Questions !

Recommended Posts

1. Do you get your own private tavern or group tavern ?

2. Do you get choice to have open game and private game with say with 1 other friend like 2 player COOP but locked game mode.

3. Is the in game currency introduced yet ?

4. What is the ETA of this game being free to play ? I don't like the thought of spending out and in 2 - 3 weeks or a bit more its released as free to play.


Much appreciated for any answers.

#1 yes kinda, I think others can join, I have had a tavern of my own.


#2 yes you can do a private match, I did one solo not sure if it's because I started it with a empty tavern.


#3 no, it hasn't been added yet, but when it does it should have plenty worth getting.


#4 they are expecting the early access to last about a year.


all in all I'd say it's worth getting.

I thought i should come to explain a bit about the Tavern but the basic has been answered above.

when you start the game you go into what it's called the Entry Tavern, which in the future will be the social hub, with it holding quite some people ( i've seen posts saying 20 people and so on) in here you can make a part or simply chat with other online people. 
From this tavern you can choose either to progress into a level bracket, 1-3 3-5 5-10 etc and chose if you want either public on private

On public you'll be matchmaked if you don't have a full team and either join an ongoing map or go into a 2nd tavern in which there's a random person in the party appointed as leader to select the map (i'd guess the tavern shown belongs to the appointed leader of the party). 

On private you'll be sent into your private tavern, where people can only join you by requesting on steam as your friends, or if you invite them through steam. Here you can choose which map you want to play and play solo.

Thanks for your answers punisher, will wait for more clarification for 1 & 2 before decide to buy.


Hope you can have private tavern and private game mode with 1 friend and that your not forced to have like 3 or 4 player squad with random players.

If you go to your private tavern only your steam friends can join by requesting or by you inviting, if they don't request/you don't invite them you'll be playing solo, as i mentioned above.

Hi Gutu


I don't like the idea of the social hub, was mess in DDE with this at the start so im going to wait and see if they change this so it can all be accessed private from the word go, seems a bit pointless going from 1 tavern to another to finally start a game. They had it perfect in DD1 select private tavern from menu and invite friends and then go to game.


Well thank you very much for your answer, you saved me some cash :)


Happy defending to those of you playing, hope it turns out good.

I can't talk for you, but i personally enjoy as it will allow you to meet with more people and they most likely have something awesome planned for it, Dungeon Defenders 2 is aiming pretty high with each feature they implement, i can tell you that while it might feel pointless for now it might totally make sense in the future.

At the moment the social hub isn't working, so you end up solo in the Entry Tavern, but the future idea is to have a social hub there, however i don't see what's the problem of having to go through the first tavern to go to the private one, you can make some friends.

But well it's my opinion, it doesn't bother me at all being 1 minute with other people until i got to my own private game. However if you're annoyed by it i can understand. Well i'm sorry that you won't be playing, but if you ever do i hope we play together and i hope we have a great time! :D

Hi Gutu


The social tavern in DDE was a mess, too much chat so many random things going on and so many trolls tbh so really don't like the idea of that. Can understand that they want socialism in the game ect so can see why they would want it in but not my type of thing. Also just reading reviews on steam and see there is no defence range on turrets etc also downscaling if you go to a lower level ...


Will be skipping this for now but will keep a lookout for any changes in the near future but im sure some point even if i wait the whole year out until release will be playing this game, until then happy gaming :)

Well can't force you to like it but notice that, there is actually tower range stat but now works as a special stat (we now have special stats, my favorite one is on the weapon, x% dmage dealt heals the user, there's on that is avaible on the boots, x% chance if you land on the target to stun i think? and many others).

The tower range now is greatly increased by upgrading, to stop the DD1 monster range happening of towers that would hit on the other side of the map which made the game pretty hard to balance (i loved DD1 and played over 2k hours) but yeah it's a bit different but you get used to it and it starts to make logic not to have a stat that increases range so much.

DDe was made by a different dev team from both DD1 and DD2. Also they seem to be heading the right way, there's also a incoming social system that will prevent you from being joined with the others. 

You only get downscale if you play a lower level map than you are so if you're 15 with level 15 gear you go into lvl 5 and you're a level 5 with slightly increased stats comparing but balancing you, so you can play with your friends without carrying them. 

The features do still need a bit work i say, but i'm just trying to let you know that if you dislike something that's not implemented it can be changed, as our feedback matters, that's why it's early access, so we can stop trendy from going into the wrong path with these features. When the public hub comes if the community asks for a way to avoid it the devs will listen (if the feedback is notice-able on it, like they did on the armor, we didn't use to have armor, we had relics giving us stats, but now we have armor because the community said, no, this doesn't feel right, armor is way better, and they worked out a solution that works just perfectly)
However i understand if you rather wait, it was just my friendly soul trying to show you my point, don't take me wrong, i respect your opinion :)

The tower range change I have actually enjoyed. As Gutu mentioned, range will increase when upgrading and there are some skills on equipment that technically increase range as well. This also helps make things like auras not required like they were in DD1, because if you didn't have giant auras protecting every nook and cranny your crystals could get sniped.

The Entry Tavern right now is completely personal. Steam friends can join or be invited. I really don't know how they want to develop it in the long run, but right now it is completely personal. From there you choose to join a public or private game lobby tavern.


The downscaling is another thing I am also liking because it helps prevents power leveling. The only good side of power leveling in DD1 was to get an additional character up faster, but it allowed for someone who had never played to instantly be able to do end-game levels. Even though your characters levels get downscaled, I still believe you keep any specializations, towers, and abilities (Can anyone else confirm the specializations? I know towers and abilities are.) This allows you to help a friend, but not completely break the progression curve.

Much appreciated for any answers.



1) you have the choice of a public group or a private one (where you can invite friends or play solo).

2) Currently there is a two tier system. You start in a special night tavern where you can set up your hero deck and create new heroes etc. Then you select a level range to play in and select private or group tavern. In the private tavern no random people can join you but you can invite friends.

3) No. That won't come until later.

4) If you read the steam store page, it indicates that the game may be in early access for a year or more.


Hope that helps in combination with the answers already given :)

At the moment the Entry tavern is not a social hub, it's just a room for you to set up and select what type of match you want to go into. If they do eventually make this a social hub I'm pretty sure they will give us a private option just as they did in DDE.

This is correct. There is no social hub. You start in an empty tavern and choose whether you want to be matched with a group or play private games (either alone or with friends)
