Just about every reincarnation thread so far has raised the issue of the loss of your appearance (and any purchased cosmetics) as part of the reincarnation process. I'm not even a 'fluff' guy but its actually the cosmetics that kind of upsets me enough that I may not use any of the reincarnations... I hadn't realized how attached I was to those old faces.

It would be wonderful to have some dev feedback on your thoughts about our feedback. Is the very common request that things default to your old look if you keep the same race 1) feasible, 2) something you may do - still thinking about it, 3) something you will do, 4) something that is a non-starter for you.

Another big issue is the loss of flagging for raids for lesser & greater, as well as the associated reset on raid counters. While this is totally understandable for TR, can we get some dev feedback on the possibility of keeping those flags/counts in place? Once again, is this 1) feasible, 2) something you may do - still thinking about it, 3) something you will do, 4) something that is a non-starter for you

In both cases, any information on the "why" would be helpful.

Yes, I know people will argue both ways on each and every point...but it would be nice to see where Turbine is leaning.

Thanks!

Agreed with OP and also like to know if Wizards can keep their inscribed spells?

NO!!
Just NOOO!!

You will have to re-flag due to the fact that your NEW physical body has NEVER been through any of the quests.

Wizzy's keeping inscribed scrolls.....thats a tough one. You could say no, because: You didn't send your old spell book to your new address and place of birth to be passed onto yourself did ya? How did you know you were gonna die and be TR'd? More importantly, how would you have known when and where you were gonna come back into the world?

BUT, how is it that you still have all your raid loot?

HMMMMM.....hard one to answer?

i will say.......

I AM THE FPOON???

WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO KEEP MY APPEARANCE THOUGH.

Sometimes it takes me 20-30 mins to get my toon to look a certain way. Hate to lose that to the "random" button....UGH!! have you seen some of the combinations of CR^P the random generator spits out???

I'd like to keep appearance just to keep appearance, within reason.

Lol, changing appearance is one of the main reasons I'm using reincarnations.

Although, I'll agree your character's existing look should be what pops on the screen when you reincarnate, and then you can adjust from there.

Exactly, give the option to stay with what you have or change.

for GR & LR you keep your favor, how is it that the 12 recognize you enough to know you have 150 favor with them but not remember how you got that favor (running the 5 flagging quests). Its dumb from a story line perspective.

A wizards spell book would have been left behind along with the rest of the loot, no excuse there.
