Simple suggestion. Since now +3 unbound tomes are dropping, there is any chance for us to get a +3 BtC tome of our choice at 2500 favor?

And since we're here, maybe a +1 BtC tome at 1000 favor, just for consistency.

Wouldn't that make +3 tomes a bit too common?
I do, however, agree on +1 tomes at 1,000 favor. +1 tomes aren't that powerful, and it will add some flavor.

Didn't we used to get a +3 tome upon capping?

Is 2500 total favor really all that common? A single +3 tome is no more overpowered than a single +2 tome being given at 1750 when it was introduced.

I would like to have guaranteed +3 tomes on 20th list of raids (at least those of high enough level).
The only +3 tome I saw in game was on shroud 20th list.

Sure. Would be fun!

It would inspire people to buy more packs to get more favor too!;)

Make it happen Turbine!

Add +1 tomes at 1400 and +3 at 3000 favor only because we already receive veteran status at 1000 and FvS at 2500 as rewards. The rewards need to be spaced out across the favor range and not dogpiled onto certain mile stones if your really looking to give people a reason to run more of the packs.

While we're at it, could we have a crunching recipe where a certain number of +1 tomes could be combined to get a +2? I'm ok with it being a really high number, say a 20 to 1 ratio... but +1 tomes seem to be of limited use.

actually, this sounds like a good idea- maybe 4 +1s to make a +2 (all 4 would have to be the same type, so 4 +1 dex tomes are needed to make a +2 Dex tome.)

4 may SEEM low, but remember, even +1s are somewhat rare, and getting 4 of the same kind would be fairly difficult

Make it at 3000 and /signed.

Incentive for Turbine (you'd need to be VIP or own every pack).
Incentive for us to get 3000 (I TR'd after 2500, and never saw a reason to grind the last 500).

1750 also gives 32 pts builds. The Tome was added because it could be a milestone everyone want to reach after they reaped the server-wide prize. Right now, there is no reason to get over 1750 total favor after you already got 32-pts.

I also used the ranks because they are linear: 1000 (starting) + 750 (1750) + 750 (2500).

The only problem with trying to do them as a linear progression is that there are already rewards there and provides no incentive to do anything other than the normal stuff. should people have an incentive to do more....yes. However, the milestones you suggest do not accomplish this as they use the same old ones we've always had. Unless the point of your suggestion isn't give me a reason to do more and more akin to I want more stuff without doing anything extra, which I don't think it is.

I know my suggestion isn't "lets do 75% of all quests on elite for a bound tome". But if the devs go ahead and put the tome as a favor reward, I don't care exactly where the milestone is.

The advantage of using the existing milestone is because when you reach those milestones for the second time, you at least get something.
