Before posting, why not ask yourself, What Would Wrecan Say? A great man once said "If WotC put out boxes full of free money there'd still be people complaining about how it's folded." – Boraxe
love the old one dont get me wrong. i kind of gave up on it though once they never fixed the triggers disappearing after 8 months of it being reported.
ive lowered my expectations to the bottom, and that bottom is 'export' button.
Interestingly, this sets the apparent level cap at 55. I wonder who might be a 55th-level threat in the game? The strongest deity? Something else?
I love D&D more than I could ever love a human child.
So are you folks why it isn't loading for me anymore and says it in the error message "down for maintenace" oh and the whole D&D website was dead for awhile as well?

another positive, if their goal is to eventually have pictures for more creatures, that would be very cool. i always wanted the old one to have pictures
Hey all. The fix is up now and you should be able to save monsters that you've leveled and import and save custom monsters from the classic Monster Builder. It looks like some of you bumped into some issues while we were pushing the fix, but hopefully all those are over.Now on to the topic of "why did you release something that wasn't feature complete?" questions/complaints. Main reasons, short and sweet - we wanted to give all the DDI members a chance to check out what we're working on, and we wanted to make sure that all DDI members had the chance to use the MB to import monsters into their VT games during the next step of the VT beta.You still have access to the classic MB (you can download it right now). We won't be doing any more updates to it, but it's still there and still usable. Yes it has issues, but I'm hopefully most people understand that we won't be working on the old tools while adding features to the new tool. With the web-based MB, we have something that gives very basic functionality and is usable with the VT that we wanted to get into everybody hands, not just the small group of testers that we had before.The VT point is a bit more tangible - Having the web-based MB out, even in this limited form, makes imputing monsters into the VT 1000% (statistic completely made up) better for DMs. So getting this out to DDI subscribers who will very soon be testing out the VT seemed a pretty important thing. I am definitely sorry that I haven't given you more news on what to expect with this AT release these last few weeks. I'm also sorry if I led you to believe that the AT would be more robust than what the closed beta testers had access to. We did add a couple features, but the biggest changes are on their way. I will be back in the coming days with more information on the features we'll be implementing, focusing on whatever the next big thing is.

Honestly I renewed my subscription because I was interested in the new monster builder, but I am disappointed that I can't actually build monsters in it yet. The email I received suggested that it would have this functionality. I feel betrayed and as if I've been lied to.Is it possible to cancel my subscription and get a refund?
Alas, all I see is the exact same Monster Catalogue that has no use for me whatsoever. Seriously, does any of us have a use for this that isn't subsumed by the Compendium and a good Word program?
