    remember loot bonuses of any kind are for random loot only guys, not raid or named loot!


    just making sure those who are unsure or unaware are in the know!


    can help when running the higher level quests to get better stuff to sell and get more money, if you're broke

    The Fool's part of this is that they aren't REALLY turning the bonus on, they are just telling you they are. In fact what they are really doing is turning on -1 loot, -25% raid loot chance

    Ooooo....that would be quite cruel.


    And we would have no means to tell the difference since random loot/chance is random.

    Anyone else wish that if you typed "FOOLSJEWELS11" into the DDO Store while on a live server, your character would /death and you'd hear the Vampire Laugh.

    I can't imagine the forum threads griping about this. I'd laugh, though.

    I wish they would spend more time doing stuff like this.

    Or, you log in on April Fools, and your large ingredient bag is missing from the bank, but when you open it a second time, it's there with a little "Gotcha" message. (Well, this one might not be funny, as it has happened for real to some people.)

    Or you log in and get a message that your guild is dissolved.

    Just something to get a rise out of people and add a little flavor to the game.

    Or, better yet, as an April Fool's joke, you get to the end of running Misery's Peak for favor on elite with your low level toon to discover that this time you actually have to defeat Aussircaex to complete the quest. ;>

    Or, anytime anyone enters a quest on Casual on April 1st, they get a message that "This quest has automatically been upgraded to Epic. Enjoy" regardless of character level. And have a random chance of actually have some Epic mobs/loot.

    *wearing a Tinfoil Hat and speaking in conspiracy whispers*

    Anyone notice how this is in the 'Announcements & Contests' section and not the 'DDO Store Sales & Promotions' section?

    I think it would be great if no matter what quest you think you're entering tomorrow, you actually end up having to protect Coyle in "Hold for Reinforcements."
