    Thumbs down Store Sells +3 Gear

    I just received an e-mail from DDO announcing the sale of +3 Weapons, Armor and Ammo. Is this game getting so those with deep pockets will have an advantage over us poor slobs?

    Vanilla +X weapons are mostly vendor trash though. So it's more like a scam to get people dumb enough to buy it.

    QFT. +1, +2, or +3 weapons are so rediculously easy to get (and so rediculously overpriced in the turbine store) that it is just the thing to get a newb to spend his hard won favor points on, and then turn them off to the game once they realise how stupid a purchase they are.

    Edit: Especially since there are vendors that sell an unlimited number of +1 and +2 weapons and armours of all types for base price...

    This is just the start. Will players be so sanguine when the store starts selling +20 Mighty Sword of Awesome Power? It's just 2000 TPs.

    The worst thing about selling +3 gear is when players realize its **** they may get ****ed at turbine and leave the game.

    But yes, given the creap (+2 tome weekend anyone?) I have no doubt that eventually I will be able to by my ever alusive large scales in the store.

    Eventually, we can just buy full-favor, level 20, fully geared characters that have accomplished everything there is to accomplish in game. It initially comes with a sense of accomplishment, and then quickly turns to boredom (All included for free!). All the experiuence of playing DDO for months/years without any of the time investment!

    If you act now, they'll throw in "Spouse/significant other complains you pay more attention to the game than them" *AND* carpel tunnel syndrome for free ^_^!

    Funny thing is if you pay a plat farmer to level you are breaking the rules, but if Turbine sells the same it will be lauded as a brilliant game changing decision. I do not endorse using plat farmers to level.

    Well think how much they could sell capped toons for. I mean for many years people were selling capped WOW toons on Ebay for over $1000. That was back when the cap was 60 and took like a week to get there.

    It's just more evidence of that slope, the +1 through +3 gear is trash but the +2 tome sure wasnt and only time will tell if they sell more useful stuff or not of course the prirate bandana was pretty useful to.

    The ANTI-Realms FANBOI NUKE THE REALMS ITS THE ONLY REAL WAY TO BE SURE

    Lets not forget 32 PT builds and the purchasing of veteran status.
