Inventory System

Dungeons & Dragons Online

Dungeons & Dragons launched with an inventory system with all the things you would expect to equip your MMO character. You could toggle between your inventory bags, see what gear and weapons have been equipped on your character and inspect the stats on everything you had. However, like many MMOs, DDO had that annoying problem of what happens when you can't figure out what bag that new rare sword you just got is.

I worked with the design team to create a view in the inventory where you could search and filter items based on their type. This made finding things a lot easier. While we also kept the standard “paper doll” view, we gave it a visual update to tie in with the list view.
