Turbine's official Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach website has been updated with a new developer diary penned by community representative Samera. In it, we learn about the team's plans for updating the friends list:
The first thing you will likely notice about the new Friends panel is that the information you see for each friend now looks a lot like what you find in the Who panel. When viewing your friends list you will see all the relevant information about your friend: race, gender, class, level, guild, and party status (when they are online). Looking for a rogue? You can now sort your friends list for each of these categories.
Unlike the Who panel where you can enter a comment about yourself for others to see, the Friends panel provides a custom comment entry where you can describe your friend (as another characters alt, their playstyle, anything you like). Simply select the friend you would like to write a comment about, enter a comment into the comment text field at the bottom of the panel, and click the update button. The comment will now appear in the entry for the selected friend.
