    I agree completely and asked for that in my OP. Silence from the devs on that so far.

    VIPs and Premiums appear to get 5 for the 1st of the day and 1 for each other character. This is per server. The day/reset currently occurs at 7:01 EST or 00:01 UTC. You get no warning before getting your tokens. The only way to know what the challenge is beforehand is to check the forums or create an alt on another server to check and then go back to your server knowing which character to pick up tokens with.

    Added this to the OP for people just checking the thread out for the first time.

    I will continue to post the challenge of the day in another thread when I check it out to help people. The link to that thread is in the OP. Now if the devs would just make this unnecessary.

    Thanks to all the VIPs and Premiums who have helped us track the handout behavior. We still have no F2P reports on how many they get, but true F2P players may be like I was and become tempted and become Premium quickly for its perks.

    After yesterday's hotfox, the distribution method should be:

    5 tokens per day per server for VIP and Premium on their first visit of the day.
    1 token/day/server for VIP and Premium on their subsequent visits that day.
    3 tokens/day/server for Free players on their first visit of the day.
    1 token/day/server for Free players on subsequent visits per day.

    ?

    So, after the initial bonus, VIPs and Premiums are lumped right in along with F2P?

    *scratches head*

    Seriously - what are you guys trying to do, here?

    Initial DAILY bonus. It reads to me that 5 on the first character of that day, not a one time thing. F2P get no bonus at all.

    Per day!


    Otherwise, thanks for the fix! Got my 5 tokens today, much better than the 1 token I was getting before.

    Might want to include 5 Tokens/day/server for VIP and Premium.

    As I got 5 Token for the first visit on 3 separate servers.

    On a separate note, would it be possible to have the NPC handing out the tokens to inform character what todays quest is first?

    Nice threads (this one and the above), +1 for the answers and saving me switching to a different server to see what character to pick up the 5 tokens with
    I'm only an occasional player since ShadowFell, please forgive me if I'm not up to speed on anything that's changed since then.

    Sorry, misunderstood. This is much better than a bonus 5 once evar.

    Thank you!

    Yea, I noticed last night that I got 5 tokens.

    But, does "1 token/day/server for VIP and Premium on their subsequent visits that day" mean that I can revisit the NPC multiple times on a given day and get an additional token each time? I can't try this out ingame at the moment -- is there a limit to how many additional 1 token/day/server I can receive?

    Or am I reading this incorrectly? Maybe that means that you get 5 tokens for your first character on a server to visit the NPC and then any other character (on that server) that visits the NPC that same day would only get one token? That seems more likely.

    Each alt can visit the vendor once per day to get a token. Whoever the first alt is for the day will get an extra 4 tokens.

    'doh!* This is correct. Free players are supposed to get three free on their first visit to Kariya per day per server, and one token for each subsequent character per day per server. I will edit my original post to be correct...

    Can I take a moment and point out some weirdness with the vendor. For example, today is Kobold Chaos. However, the vendor tells you:

    (Standard): You receive 5 Challenge Tokens - Kobold Island: Kobold Chaos Kobold Chaos.
    Its not a big deal, but it sticks out too me. I'm pretty sure it does this on other ones, but I cant remember which ones off hand.
    The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.
