Sorry this got missed, but the Traveller's Terrific Trunk is now in the DDO Store. It was added yesterday, but I've been at PAX, so just now messaging it.

Hope PAX went well!

What is the Traveller's Terrific Trunk? I haven't been able to log into any games for over two weeks due to the graphics card keeling over (and forcing me to use a microsoft generic driver that cannot even play games from the 90's! - basically turning my comp into a glorified work computer).

Is it like Otto's xp boxes?

It was an amazing deal when they had it on sale before (I don't remember if it was 50% or 75% off) I bought several. Without the sale it's just not so attractive if all you want is the xp/slayer pots.

Agreed, at the price it's not very attractive. At least to me.

let's break it down 3,695 TP.

50 Bigby's Hands ....... useless ... effectively worthless
1000 Omnispell stones .. I have several 1000 never use them and they don't sell on the AH or ASAH ... effectively worthless ........ 1,900 DP
2500 Omnispell Dusts ... Ditto I have probably x3 as much as I do stones, doesn't sell and I don't use ... effectively worthless ... 2,500 DP

1 Traveler's Cosmetic .. No variety here, if you have 1 you have it already ... marginally worth something ........... Avg price ~ 725 DP
5 Remnant Boosts ....... Marginally useful, not a lot of chaser gear with the trader, not in store but on par with slayer boots .. 480 DP

100 AS ... useful ...... 595 DP
5 Sov I XP pots ........ 2395 DP
5 Major Slayer Pots .... 480 DP


So look at this list.. IF you have the outfit already and don't have a use for remnants (I have 50K sitting in the bank with nothing left to spend them on) .. basically someone who's been around then you are looking at paying 3,695 DP for 3,470 DP ... that's a horribad deal.

If you are a new player who likes cosmetics then you might get a little value out of it as that is sitting at ~ 4,675 DP

What they are obviously leaning on to make it a "good deal" is the Omnidust components but other than keeping them as a backup on your very last inventory tab they are a monetization trap IMHO. You get used to using them and then you start paying for them. At $0.01 a spell (dust) or $0.019 a spell (stone) you could start burning some real money without realizing it if you keep buying them.


So looking at it for me (and I suspect a great many players) you only have AS, slayer and XP pots worth anything so regular price 3,460 DP which honestly I would be better off sinking into XP pots and getting 7 of them for 125 DP more. Even at 25% off I don't think I could bite the bullet on this one. At 50% off though I'd probably buy 2.

Very glad I looked up what the cosmetic looks like before plunking money down. It's a romper with a backpack. That was the only marginally tempting part of the Trunk. Now, I can rest easy my FOMO didn't lead me into another round of Buyer's Remorse.

The Trunk was 75% off, which is when I bought it. Definitely worth it at that price.
